"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
For a while it seemed Keith would be on his best behavior, but then the OlbySpin phrases started to appear: a reference to Bush's "seemingly endless rethinking of Iraq", an aside about whether the Warren Commission wasn't really a "coverup".
Ex-Republican Pat Buchanan was brought in to expound on--what else?--the "neocons" and the wrongness of the Iraq war. Then Pat moved to why he split with Ford to back Reagan, and you could hear Citizen Keith groaning in the background.
With The Wolffe Man, Herr Olbermann characterized "Mister" Bush's upcoming change of plan for Iraq as a "lose-lose" proposition (gilding the lily by nonsensically calling it "the proverbial" lose-lose). KO expressed hope that the Democrats would trumpet the fact that "Mister" Bush has caused more American deaths than Usama Bin Laden did. Which might make sense if the only people UBL killed were killed on 9/11, and if mass murder of innocents were somehow morally equivalent to casualties in a volunteer military during war time. But such fine points are never allowed to interfere with OlbySpin. Finally The Hour of Spin ended, and Krazy Keith tossed it to Joe Scarborough, who kicked off his hour of Gerald Ford reminiscences by asking: "Is President Bush cracking under pressure?"

UPDATE: This "special" edition of The Hour of Spin wasn't all that special as far as viewers were concerned. Despite all the promotion and the big news of Ford's death, Countdown lost to The Kasich Factor by three-to-one, and finished in fourth place both in total viewers and in the all-important, coveted "key demo".
