Tonight was Olby's night to gloat. The Vice-President was heckled by someone who cursed at him, and for Countdown, that immediately becomes headline news. The clip ran at 8:01, but Olby was going to play it again, and the rerun was teased at 8:13, 8:14, and 8:22. Finally it ran again at 8:34, and just to make sure nobody missed his sledgehammer-like point, KO brought it up yet again at 8:40, when he was chatting with Howard Fineman. (Fineman is the perfect pundit for all occasions--he can go on with Laura Ingraham and serve up exactly what she wants to hear, then come on Countdown and say whatever makes Keith happy.)
The ostensible reason for inviting Fineman was to discuss comments critical of Bush from the Manchester Union-Leader and columnist Robert Novak (also teased incessantly). And, um, the last time Olby ever thought the opinions of the Union-Leader were news? And for that matter when did he ever cite Robert Novak for his insightful commentary?
Oh wait, he did cite Robert Novak: when he named him one of the "worst people in the world". But today Novak was suddenly a respected columnist. If only Bob had known, all he had to do was say something critical of Bush, and in Olby's world, he goes from worst to first.
Olby had more "worst" people tonight. They included Tom Tancedo and Rick Santorum. What do they have in common? That's right, they are both Republicans. Are any of KO's "worst people" ever Democrats or liberals? We decided to do a quick search of the msnbc archives. Here are the "worst people" that we found:
So the breakdown is:
Incredibly, Olby still claims he is "non-partisan". As proof of it, he brags that he never votes. Thank heaven for small favors.
