"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
The convicted felon, Lefty Alter, Gonzo Gate [Ding!], quick shot of John Ashcroft interview (the one Republican ever) to pretend this isn't a far left venue, Valerie Plame (god that is old!), Al Gore running for President? (contain thyself keith), old body armor story, Tour De France - yawn, some morons calling 911 while high, another Friday in the Spin Zone of boredom.
#5: Richard Nixon [Ding!] right off the bat. 30 years ago tomorrow that Richard Nixon appeared on television and told an interviewer that when the President does it, it's not illegal. Nixon's former intern, Dick Cheney, is essentially the equivalent of such statements by Nixon according to Herr Olbermann. Following such an accusation, a close up of the Vice President taking the oath looking strangely like he's doing a Roman (Fascist) salute. Coincidence? Nah. Keith tries to contain his excitement over the idea that the House (Breaking News here folks) will have a vote of "no confidence" on the Attorney General Gonzales. Lest Keith forget, we don't have a parliament in the United States. We have a congress. Since Constitution of 1789, we have never had a no confidence vote in the United States congress - ever. Mind you, MonkeyMann fails to mention how we don't have a parliament. Bring in the convicted felon, liar and everything else John Dean. Great Thanks before the interview even starts. Dean opines that "conservative Presidencies" and "conservative courts" (aka, non activitist ones that comply with OlbyLogic) enhancing "immunity" for elected officials. Dean pretends that he is actually some authority on anything, given the fact that he isn't even allowed to practice law anymore. But appearing on Keithy's show means you are legitimate, loyal readers. If Keith agrees with you - you are the END ALL BE ALL. A lot of, "uh - uh - uh - what do you say? something something?" powerful questions lobbed at "Mister" Dean about "Mister" Bush. Keith declares all these wiretaps as illegal. Funny, they are not. Furthermore, Keith conveniently forgets that the Attorney General serves at the pleasure of the President and does as he asks. That's not to suggest he does illegal things, but that he finds a way to comply with the law while acheiving the President's goals. These "wiretaps" that Keith thinks are illegal incidentally were needed the DAY BEFORE the Madrid train bombings. I wonder why the administration and "Mister" Bush thought it was important? Greatest thanks.
Stop the presses! A Democratic Senator, Ken Salazar, calls for Gonzales resignation! No way? A DEMOCRAT CALLING FOR THAT? YOU DON'T SAY. Enter slippery Shuster on the "no confidence" vote. Is it a better vote in the House or Senate? Shuster, quite intelligently, realizes that there is no "parliamentary" way to stop the "vote" in the House. Gonzales trying to "steam roll" the Justice Department for visiting a "sick guy" in the hospital. Again, conveniently, Slippery Shuster forgets to mention that the authorization for those wiretaps EXPIRED while he was in the hospital. The President wants the support of his Attorney General on said wiretaps? Bad. Why? He was in the hospital. Enter in "throw under the bus" from Shuster parroting his Fuhrer. Great thanks.
#4: Body Armor AGAIN. Jesus H. Christmas, Mister Olbermann. Can you find something else new to talk about? This is the OLDEST DNC talking point around. Lisa Myers regurgitated video from the Mothership. The NBC mothership plays some insurgent videos to make the point about body armor whether or not it's the best. Thanks for giving the terrorists another way to show their videos. NBC claims Dragon Skin is better. This recapper is unable to find anything to counter it - it may be true. The Army, however, says otherwise.
Oddball: Moron making a stupid 911 phone call
Newsmakers: some dude who electrocuted himself while doing graffittii, someone proposes on Jerry Springer who he had a restraining order from, bitter ex girlfriend put her boyfriend's stuff in the harbor
#3: Keith hawks Al Gore for President. Everyone cares about global warming (except me). Unbiased Alter comes to play sock puppet. Is Al Gore undecided? Hard hitting. Right now he's not running, says Alter. No, really? You don't say? An "aide" says there is a 10% chance he'll run. Thanks for that info. Bash McCain for missing votes. Will it materially hurt him? Only his voters might care. Does Alter actually think that McCain won't win Arizona if he wins the nomination? Apparently, his campaign is not in good shape despite being first in South Carolina. Meh. Many thanks.
#2: Doping scandal on the Tour de France. Regurgitated video.
Keeping Tabs: Prince Harry not going to Iraq. Paris Hilton and Heidi Fleiss.
#1: D.C. Idol. A bunch of singing Senators and other filler.
In the Media Matters minute, some 8th grade teacher uses a bucket to capture a bat, the bat had rabies. Silver: Nuclear Management Company guy says he was a "government assassin" and got a job. Gold: Don Rumsfeld! We needed one eeeeeeeeevil NeoCon for trying to do something good. (Blue Blog source: The Carpet Bagger Report).
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's languished at #5,276 on amazon.com (necessitating a 70% off sale - ha!), but "Culture Warrior" is #872. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome continues its hilarious streak of not ranking; O'Reilly's book is #1,011 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. Thursday's Hour of Spin managed a second place finish in total viewers as well as that "money demo" Olbsession. Yet, he managed that second in the beloved, all-important, coveted "key demo" by a mere 1k viewers. Whew, holding on for dear life for second. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 5 [GUARDED]
