The pundit class has been chattering today about what in the wide world of sports the President was thinking when he said he was sticking by the proposed port sale to the UAE. We have our own theory. The White House is trying to drive Keith Olbermann stark raving bananas. Today they made real progress:
The President threatens his own party's leaders!
Translated from hyperbolic OlbySpeak, that means he said he would veto a bill.
[Republicans] say no to turning security at six key ports over to the United Arab Emirates!
The second day in a row for this Olbermann lie. Security remains in the hands of the Coast Guard, Homeland Security, and the rest of the same people who handle it now.
Is this the political crisis of the Bush administration?
Was that drooling around Olby's mouth, or foaming? Some day HDTV will be able to resolve those fine details. Keith said this was "the most politically controversial Presidency since Abraham Lincoln", giving heavy play to the various GOPers who have expressed reservations about the deal. Jim Vandehei of the Post was today's first designated crony, and Olby turned to him for a prognosis on how this would play out.
Stop the tivo! Vandehei? This is the same Jim Vandehei who, less than 24 hours before Dick Cheney spoke to Brit Hume, said on A-Mess-NBC:
He's never going to come out publicly and talk about this.
Oh. Kay. Matters didn't improve when Craig Crawford took his turn. Olbermann's Brain called this "another [Harriet] Myers moment", and snickered his way through another predictable round of playing human echo chamber. The GOP could lose control of Congress, he claimed, almost causing Keith to flip his wig.
After repeating the lie about security being in the hands of "a company owned by Arabs" (no racial stereotyping here! no profiling here!), KO went to Evan Kohlmann. He tried to explain to Olby that terrorists can infiltrate any company, not just one run by "Arabs", and all this fuss was a red herring and a canard. He did endear himself to KO by talking about the Bush administration and inspection of packages. Still, we have to be thankful any time a contrary point of view is permitted to make a cameo appearance, even if it is spiced with the anti-administration rhetoric that is a sine qua non at Countdown.
After a reference to that well-known Supreme Court Justice "Joseph" Alito came another session of "oddball", again introduced in Olby's overbearing fashion ("It's 25 years to the day..."). The #3 slot brought us the well-worn story of the lost dog from the dog show, and Keith actually spent time interviewing a pet psychic (or, as KO insisted on calling her, an "animal communicator"). Incredibly, he treated this character as if she really could talk via telepathy with dogs and get visions of where they are. Olby showed more skepticism in his fake newscast on the tv show "Surface"!
Next it was back to the Supreme Court, with Keith using the politically correct terminology "late term abortion" to describe the controversy that will be heard by the Court. A regurgitated NBC report took care of the details. The #1 story was all about the gym teacher who took payoffs to let kids out of his class.
The "worst person" was chosen not from Media Matters, but from the equally far-left ThinkProgress. It was, of course, a Republican, and a conservative to boot (a twofer!): Orrin Hatch. KO's recitation was lifted almost verbatim from their article. ThinkProgress, like its parent group, is another fine product of the George Soros machine.
At The Hour of Spin, there is usually a dog that did not bark. On Tuesday's edition it was the terror indictments that were "breaking news" this afternoon. Not one word. What's this, a possible success in the war on terror? Well, we just don't have time for that. Instead we get a dog's dinner of celebrity sleaze and a woman who reads the thought waves of animals.
That's The Hour of Spin for this, the 6th day of the Keith Olbermann CoverUp.
