"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
The opening spiel found Krazy Keith in rare form: an unnamed source about why Bush is wrong, another story about why Bush is wrong, why Cheney is wrong, why the Bush administration is like Stalin and Hitler. Plus O.J. Simpson's book and American Idol.
Tony Blair is against the surge. Oh, sorry, the "escalation". Clip from 60 Minutes interview (guess what clip? Right, "Mister" Bush admits mistakes!). Edward R Olbermann said 655,000 civilians have died in Iraq since the invasion, citing no source. "Mister" Bush is under fire from all sides, Cheney is even more stubborn. Olby cited Gen Casey to the effect that US troops are under US command, thereby making his hyperbolic outburst in the opening spiel ("under the command of an Iraqi general") just Another Olbermann Lie.
Monkeymann suggested to Rajiv that our troops are being inserted into a civil war. "It's not encouraging." We're being played like a pawn, aren't we? "Maliki could well dig in his heels." Aren't we actually helping Iran? The Iraqis "really aren't on board" with our Iran policy. Great thanks.
Next came another episode of Olby and The Perfessor, something about lawyers for the terrorists being the real victims because CEO's might not want to hire law firms who defend terrorists. The Perfessor immediately cried "intimidation" against the "troglodyte" in the administration who dared make that observation (never mind that pesky 1st Amendment, it can be so inconvenient on OlbyPlanet). This whole segment was another excursion into Olbysurrealism, where the right of corporations to refuse to hire law firms they don't like is no different than it has been for centuries, but never mind, this is the eeevil administration of "Mister" Bush taking away your rights. Or somebody's. You know, like habeas corpus.
Next up were copious quotes and analysis of the leaked O.J. Simpson book chapter. Now wait, wasn't it not that long ago that Fat Ass was slamming the eeevil O'Reilly because Mr Bill wasn't denouncing the whole book project enough? That claim, of course, was just Another Olbermann Lie, but as soon as parts of the book are published, there's Monkeymann, reveling in every detail, complete with an interview guest. An entire segment! Need we point out this is another sterling example of Olbypocrisy at its finest?
The kidnapped boys (regurgitated NBC video), Miss New Jersey, the internet box (this segment running immediately after Olby refers to Donald Trump's pageants as "tawdry"), and American Idol's Paula Abdul. In the Media Matters Minute, "comedian Rush Limbaugh" was attacked for speaking of the Barbara Bouncer matter (conservative slot; Blue Blog Source: Media Matters). Olby drew comparisons to earlier Laura Bush comments, and in doing so, indicted himself and verified what you read here first--Olbermann is a hypocrite. And "Fox & Fiends" (Fox slot) was attacked for daring to criticize NBC.
Dogs that did not bark: The infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann made no mention of a key Islamic militant arrested in Kenya. And for sure Herr Olbermann went out of his way not to mention the London terrorists' trial. Meanwhile, still not one word about the resignations from the Carter center. Nothing about the dramatic increase in recruiting for Iraqi police. And nothing, not even a snarky "worst person" nomination, for the speaker at the MLK service in Atlanta who analogized the hanging of Saddam Hussein to the crucifixion of Christ. Come to think of it, there was hardly any mention (maybe none?) of Martin Luther King. No time for that, of course. We need more coverage of Paula Abdul and the internet box!
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olberman's name rallied all the way up to #3,591 at amazon.com, but "Culture Warrior" is #98. The OlbyTome is #2,660 at Barnes & Noble; O'Reilly's book is #246 there, as well as being one of 2006's top ten best sellers. The ratings for Friday's Hour of Spin are not available due to today being King Day, but we have no doubt that the discredited sports guy suffered another humiliating loss to the eeevil O'Reilly, both in total viewers and in the critical, beloved, all-important, coveted "key demo".
