"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Hm, apparently a repeat guest. News to me. Did you think he would mention that Copenhaver was an appointee of President Clinton? (Source) Of course he didn't. Lefty Alter for good measure. Attorney "Scandal" [Ding!] with the esteemed, non partisan Rachel Maddow of Err America who enjoys "arguing with conservatives." Shocker! (Source) The Hour of Spin was painfully typical. Hence why I went drinking.
UPDATE: video & transcript below
The President "warned." The administration "screamed at." 12% of the Kansas National Guard still deployed in Iraq (that makes for 88% still there, by the way). Reminder of Katrina, connection to Iraq and to Olby, an out of touch President. How do all of these connect, do you ask? Well, by one tornado, of course! Do not think that I, or this site, am making light of the tragic devastation caused by the tornado in Greensburg. Rather, ask yourself, why is it that Fat Ass feels the need to connect the deaths of 10 people in Kansas to his extreme left views? Someway, somehow, it's the President's fault, because 88% of the National Guard is still in Kansas, that these people died. The Fuhrer declares that the war in Iraq has made us "less safe" at home and made the tornado damage worse. Keith then admits that it's really half the equipment that's in Iraq and not a personnel problem. That equipment is to haul debris away. How has not being able to haul debris as fast made us less safe, one wonders? Only OlbyPlanet has the answer to that. The equipment will not be completely "in stock" until four years after "Mister" Bush is out of office. Is there anything more disgraceful than using a natural disaster to further your political views? Mr. Copenhaver could not have been a better sock puppet. Does he think that the National Guard being deployed in Iraq create a "domino" effect and diminish FEMA's abilities? Obviously. Katrina mentioned again. Copenhaver "at a loss."
Following up, somehow connected, oh right the National Guard, is the "abandon ship" that Republicans are suggesting vis a vis Iraq. Or so says Keith. Cue eyebrow raise.
Olby revels in the Newsweek poll that suggests Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama would beat all Republican nominees. Enter Alter who, like EVERY other time he shows up, regurgitates Keith's talking points (which are blogger talking points) while pretending to do political analysis.
#4: "Gonzo-Gate" [Ding!] with cute graphic. Attorney scandal [Ding!]. The scandal now is an attempt to deny Democrats the right to vote. Olbermahn conspiracy theories about Republicans trying to deny Democrats, minorities and so forth to vote. Adam's Apple Olbermann must have discerned this through the common known fact that Republicans hate all people who are not white. Rachel Maddow eats up Keith's question about whether or not Karl Rove was behind the so-called politicalization of the voting right's department at the Justice Department. Republicans can't win if "no one's cheating." Keith agrees and expands that by saying that Republicans are trying to end the two party system. Paranoia, anyone? Keith: Bradley Schlozman has a funny name that could have come from fiction - ha! There's a reason some people I know fall asleep when watching this show. Bad jokes could be it. More Republican bashing and conspiracy theories. As always, great thanks.
#3: Herr Olbermann's love of baseball. Roger Clemens return to New York. Is it a good baseball move? Whoopee.
#2: Paris Hilton. Cue pervert comment. She's grappling with a new kind of "pokey." Nice smirk on MonkeyMann's face. Any woman that he can make lewd remarks about is a godsend for Keith.
#1: The state dinner. More "jokes" at the President's expense. Dana Milbank with a splashy white tie suit. "Nice threads." Laughing stagehand laughs (I was beginning to wonder where she went). Cute banter ensues. It wasn't a complete disaster says Milbank. Keith makes weird sexual comments about the President and the Queen. More stagehand laughing.
In the Media Matters minute, some doctor for the bronze in the UK who made a misdiagnosis, Lou Dobbs earns the silver (Blue Blog source: ThinkProgress), and the gold goes to the Olbsession of the century, "Bill-O" (Blue Blog source: MediaMatters). Keith criticizes Bill for "insulting people" (what about all those women, Mr. Merlot?) and arguing that even though the university that did the "study" about O'Reilly insulting people got five million dollars from far-left billionaire George Soros, that doesn't matter. It's just coincidental and the university claims it was an unfunded study.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name crash landed at #5,526 at amazon.com, but "Culture Warrior" is #386. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome went back to being embarrassingly unranked at Barnes & Noble; O'Reilly's book is #1,269 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. Friday's Hour of Spin finished in the usual Olby third place. Although, "Man on Fan" Olbermann prefers that "money demo" that he's always hawking as definitive and absolute. Based on that, Friday's Hour of Spin was - oh wait - still third, in the critical, beloved, all-important, coveted "key demo." O'Reilly even had a subhost to boot.
