On July 11th, AOL jumped on the OlbyWagon with a Daily Pulse poll that sought to associate Last Place Olbemann with two of the most successful cable hosts working today - Bill O'Reilly and Jon Stewart, in the obviously desperate hope that some how getting KO's mug on the same web page as two of the nation's biggest TV stars would boost his ratings by osmosis.
Predictably the OlbyLoons were out in force pounding their tom toms in the hopes of help KO score another big imaginary win in a meaningless race (sound familiar?). The usual cast of characters lined up: Newshounds, Democratic Underground, DU Redux, The Smirking Chimp, Daily Kos, Crooks and Liars.
So, what happened? It backfired, of course.
The Vote for Olby Blog Campaign mustered a measly 266,879 votes for their "Who would you rather watch?" vote, two-thirds of Olbermann's ENTIRE AUDIENCE for that same night and more than 100,000 voters than KO had viewers in the "coveted demo" on July 11th. It's pretty pathetic when more people vote in your online poll than actually watch your show (in the demo). The figures were EVEN LESS for the second question, "Who has the brighter future?"
