"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
The decibel level went up to 11 in the opening spiel: the White House wanted to fire all the prosecutors "for pure politics". Clip of Schumer (D). "The pressure builds" on the AG to resign. Yeah. It's "a White House truly in crisis". Peter Pace is another "scandal" because it's like Newt Gingrich who had an affair. Huh? How does that follow? Don't try to make sense out of it. It's OlbyLogic. So began another another Hour of Spin that would bring us another big, honking, indefensible Olbermann Lie.
Liberal Keith Olbermann was up in arms because it somebody suggested firing all the federal prosecutors. Olby was also upset that the law permits the Prez to replace US attorneys sans Congress, but didn't seem to get the idea that Congress passed that law. Whose fault is that? Within minutes, a reference to Nixon [Ding!] led into a clip of the AG, a clip of Dan Bartlett, and a clip of Schumer (D). Olby asked The Wolffe Man: "Is the Attorney General finished one way or another?" Wolffie didn't think so, but pointed out "contradictions", while Olbermoronn talked about the Bush "scandals" and how the President is being "thrown under the bus" [Ding!]. The Wolffe Man dittoed Olby's comments about the Patriot Act and naturally got thanked for same.
#4 was more of "GonzalezGate" and "this rapidly self-destructing administration" with a special guest, Joshua Marshall (Blue Blog Source: Talking Points Memo). Does Fat Ass Olbermahn ever have on bloggers from any perspective except the far left? Consider that question rhetorical since the answer is as obvious as in "What time does the 6:00 o'clock news begin?" Josh pooh-poohed any question about the legality of firing political appointees because, well, somebody should have thought of a law, and even if they didn't, so what? Then the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann delivered tonight's Great Moment in OlberJournalism:
None of the previous Presidents ever tried this.
Stop the tivo! What about this? Krazy Keith didn't bat an eyelash when he spewed this latest example of Another Olbermann Lie. Still he soldiered on, pretending like US Attorneys were not supposed to be loyal to administration policy, mentioning Karl Rove [Ding!], and Josh kept the spin one-sided, as required by law on OlbyPlanet.
Incredibly, #3 continued the "big political scandal" of firing political appointees. (We should have been keeping count of how many times "scandal" passed Olbermahn's lips tonight, but we're not going to go back and start from the top. There's only so much one can take.) The Olbermann Criminal Rehabilitation Program held another meeting tonight, with felon Dean the prime subject. KO talked about "subverting" the "right" of Congress to approve replacements, which is a pretty neat trick, because under the law Congress has no such right. The disbarred lawyer nattered on about "politicizing" the Department of Justice, and deemed the AG to be "over his head" and trying to "protect the White House". (From what? Following the law?) KO rhapsodized: "Oh, for the days of Elliot Richardson", and the felon slobbered over the Democrat Congress and their subpoena powers. Great thanks.
#2: The "scandal" at the Pentagon, but first comments on the "escalation" [Ding!] in Iraq. Peter Pace doesn't like immorality in the military. Only on OlbyPlanet is someone holding an unapproved opinion a "scandal". In order to attack Duncan Hunter (R), Monkeymann asserted that the Catholic Church pedophile problem had nothing to do with homosexuality.
Next came American Idol and Barry Bonds. In the Media Matters Minute, you guessed it, once again Krazy Keith had to feed his Olbsession (Blue Blog Source: Media Matters). O'Reilly was attacked for criticizing the lack of supervision and oversight that led to the Bronx fire, and in what appears to be a new OlberTactic, the music fades out and Herr Olbermann speaks with a fake, quiet intensity about the eeevil O'Reilly, who dares to speak opinions that Fat Ass doesn't like.
#1 was a hilarious, knee-slapping, uproariously funny segment about the gut-busting events in the news, like "Mister" Bush's Mayan visit. Just to keep things fair and balanced, Olby trotted out Genk Uygar (who?!?) from Err America. Why are we not surprised? The height of this guy's humor was that Bush and Cheney make Dan Quayle look good. Not exactly Last Comic Standing material, but it appealed to our favorite slovenly political hack. Great thanks.
Silent schnauzers: Mr Freedom of the Press, ol' First Amendment Olbermahn, somehow didn't mention this. And he's not about to report anything that might be less than favorable about Harry Reid. Hillary trotted out the vast right-wing conspiracy again. Scientific doubts about the accuracy of that Al Gore movie that Herr Olbermann hyped relentlessly. And don't expect him to deal with the changes in Sadr City. Of course the biggest silent schnauzer is the fact that Olbermoronn did not apologize for last night's smear of Bill O'Reilly. But did anyone really expect otherwise?
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olberman's name is #6,748 at amazon.com, while "Culture Warrior" is #288. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome is #2,682 at Barnes & Noble; O'Reilly's book is #1,297 there. On Monday, traditionally KO's highest rated night, he eeked out second place, both in total viewers and in the critical, beloved, all-important, coveted "key demo".
