On Thursday night's Hour of Spin, Keith Olbermann lifted a Democrat talking point straight off the blue blogs. To blunt the impact of John Kerry's embarrassing comments, Olby resorted to the tu quoque fallacy to point the finger at a Republican. The fun began when Keith tried out his talking points on his expert guest, the frequently invited Thomas Ricks.
Here is a QuickTime video of the exchange. Note how KO sets it up: John Boehner, who made a statement about generals in Iraq, is said by Keith to be "insulting US troops". Boehner is "throwing the troops under the bus". Even though Olbermann did not quote Democrats, Ricks immediately spots Keith's words as Democrat talking points and flatly contradicts Citizen Keith. KO foolishly tries again, and for a second time Ricks definitively stops the spin. (Minutes later Krazy Keith would suggest again that Boehner insulted "the generals and the troops", something that Ricks specifically said Boehner did not do.)
