A few links that deserve a bump up from the KO Mini-blog...
Jessica deGraffenreid speculates whether KO's labeling of the Republican Party as the "leading terrorist group in this country" undermines his claims to be non-partisan:
I have to go back to one of Olbermann's appearances on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson in the summer of 2006 during which he stated that he had no "rooting interest" in who wins elections. I'm sorry, but calling one party a bunch of terrorists pretty much gives your agenda away.
Gee, ya think?
Meanwhile, KO continues his love affair with the blug blogs. OlbyWatch readers will recall that KO invited lefty blogger Jane Hamsher of FireDogLake on Countdown purportedly to discuss Clinton, Inc.'s outreach to lefty bloggers (she spent most of her time shilling for her pet candidate, Ned Lamont). Now, Jane is returning the favor by doing all she can to flog KO's hapless, unreadable "book". And, KO plans on returning THAT favor by "appearing" in the "FDL Book Salon" next week. All of which explains KO's choice of segue music last night - Bob Segar's "Fire Lake". To those not up to speed on the little games played in the political media, this is known as a "dog whistle" - few viewers would even notice what "bumper" music is playing on Countdown but Fire Dog Lake users would be sure to recognize the tune immediately and understand it as a sly little "wave" from Keith to his ardent, OlbyLoon admirers who frequent Hamsher's site. Of course, we all know that Keith denies coordinating with the MoveOn crowd so maybe this is all just coincidence!
Elsewhere, Doug Ross sent over a couple of links of interest to OlbyWatch readers: a a journey into the brain of Keith Olbermann and The Einstein of the political age: Keith Olbermann. Doug also links to iowahawk who has a never-aired, first draft of a recent KO Special Komment.
