What is a Keith Olbermann conservative? Is there any such thing? As we have noted previously, the simplest way to understand Olbermann is to realize that he does not tell lies on Countdown. ALL he does on Countdown is tell lies. Every sentence is a carefully woven piece of propaganda that is infested with lies. The entire presentation of information by Keith is one big lie tied to together by lots of little ones
Last night I found myself particularly taken with how Olbermann attempted to present Philip Giraldi as a conservative on his program. Keith introduced and "great thanksed" Giraldi as a "former CIA agent" and contributor to "American Conservative" magazine. Throughout the interview, the caption beneath Giraldi read "American Conservative" magazine. All part of Keith's "even conservatives" no longer support Bush or the Iraq War meme.
I do not know much about Giraldi except that he wasn't booked on Countdown to offer dissent from the Olbermann party line. I could not find any mention of Giraldi's appearance on the American Conservative magazine web site but I did not find such a mention on the far-left site, Anti-War.com. Seems somewhere between working at the CIA and writing for Pat Buchanan (American Conservative is a Buchanan enterprise) Giraldi has been spending his time actively involved in the anti-War movement, working as a contributor to the online magazine of the Randolph Bourne Institute. The RBI bills itself as a non-profit educational entity promoting a non-interventionist foreign policy for the United States as the best way of fostering a peaceful, more prosperous world.. The primary purpose of the "RBI" appears to be running Anti-War.com because, according to SourceWatch, the RBI web site has not been updated since 2002 and they do not seem to do much else.
Giraldi is or was a partner in Cannistraro Associates which produces IntelligenceBrief. OlbyLoons will surely remember Vincent Cannistraro, a former top CIA official who, among other things ran the CIA's Contra operations during the Reagan Administration and used to pal around with Oliver North back in the day.
On any other evening, a former CIA operative who was on the payroll for the guy who ran the CIA's dirty war in Nicaragua might be in the running for a Worst Person in the World but on OlbyPlanet if you are willing to dish dirt on the Bush Administration from anywhere to the right of Nancy Pelosi Keith is more than happy to label you a conservative and slather up your every word.
