"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
The future of television news gave his usual nuanced reading of the opening spiel: the most vacationed President in history (source?), Democrats are "apopleptic" and a "special guest" will give a "rebuttal". Plus another "rebuttal", this time to Richard McCain from "analysts". O.J. Simpson, Anna Nicole Smith, why "we all hate Rush Limbaugh", Keith Richards, and more. Sixty minutes of OlbySpin start now.
UPDATE (RCox): Transcript & Video
#5: "Mister" Bush has spent 405 days at his Crawford ranch and wants Congress back to "rubber stamp his war in Iraq". It's "hypocrisy!" bellowed Keitho, as the graphic read "BULLY pulpit". Keith also lied that previous Iraq funding bills were "blank checks". After a few clips from the press conference with "Mister" Bush, Oralmann brought on the latest in his ongoing series: Blue Dress Interviews with Deep Blue Democrats. Yes, this time it was Russ Feingold. And if you haven't examined The List, you should stop everything and do so now. It is irrefutable proof that Krazy Keith is a slovenly political hack.
It was another incisive grilling by Herr Olbermann, as his laser-like questions had Feingold on the hot seat:
Send this tape to the Murrow awards committee. This was speaking truth to power! Feingold wiped the stain from his pants; he was Great Thanksed.
#4 was the latest installment of Olbermann's war against Richard McCain. Monkeymann insisted that McCain's visit to Iraq risked the lives of our troops for "a photo-op" (Blue Blog Source: No Quarter). Then we got a rerun of Dirty Olby and Crazy Larry, the latter being the Nostradamus who said, two months before 9/11, that we shouldn't fear terrorism. Bin Laden is not a threat. And other insights. Johnson is a partisan Democrat, but of course Olbermoronn doesn't mention that. Only a mental case would believe anything from Crazy Larry, but that's our Keith! Great thanks.
#3: Clinton vs Obama vs Edwards. Who's up? Who's down? Cillizza said cancer has helped Edwards in the polls. Stop the presses! Worst person in the world! Crassly dragging politics into a personal... Oh wait, we are on OlbyPlanet. Scratch that. KO said the Baghdad trip could be McCain's Dukakis-in-a-tank moment. Demeaning a P.O.W. again, Lt Olbermahn? Giuliani's wife could be a "killer" of his chances. Hey, two in a row for Rule #1 (whatever happens, it's bad for Bush/Republicans/conservatives). Then Olby turned to Mitt Romney: a lot of his money comes from Utah. Aha! A hat-trick! Great thanks.
#2: Alcoholic punch (regurgitated video), Keith Richards, Knight Rider, Anna Nicole Smith. #1: More Anna Nicole Smith. In the Media Matters Minute, Rush Limbaugh was again attacked, this time for making a joke about the shooting at CNN Center. We're skeptical about this item, but unlike Edward R Olbermann we won't report without having the facts. But it is ironic. The CNN shooting is the story that A-Mess-NBC was ordered not to cover!
Hushed hounds: The infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann attacked Matt Drudge for reporting a story based on an anonymous source (like Olby never does that). Will he do the same for a smear based on no source at all? For that matter, will he report the new developments in the original Drudge controversy? Will he tell his viewers that Iran could be just two years away from a nuclear weapon? Given that he hasn't even said one syllable about Iran's kidnapping of coalition soldiers, the answer to all these questions is: not on OlbyPlanet, he won't.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name has soared to #27,983 at amazon.com, while "Culture Warrior" is #352. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome is #3,929 at Barnes & Noble; O'Reilly's book is #314 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. Monday is Olbermoronn's strongest day, and he did barely squeak into second place both in total viewers and in the critical, beloved, all-important, coveted "key demo". Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 5 [ELEVATED]
