Man, that lock on second is so firm I might choke. Nearly 500k in that 'demo' to 171k. Media Matters better go into overdrive. I hear tears hitting the floor over at Daily Kos HQ. MoveOn is at DEFCON 1. Congrats to "Man On Fan" Olbermann.
The opening spiel was as lame as ever for Olbermahn this evening. The usual targets: Iraq dividing the country, dividing the Democrats (!), the Mayor of New York might run for President, soldiers in Afghanistan want to kill children, Abu Ghraib, Bill O'Reilly "gets the war wrong again." Olbermann's Olbsession knows no bounds.
#5: Keithy admits that the liberal base is unhappy with Hillary Clinton. The Liberal "Take Back" conference. Olbersturmfuhrer surprisingly uses the word "liberal" in his fifth story spiel. Must be trying to recoil from all those third and fourth place finishes. Nancy Pelosi shouted down by anti-war activists. Jabba can hardly contain his excitement of the very liberal Bloomberg leave the Republican party. Welcome to Craig Crawford! Does the Democratic party know how vital getting out of Iraq is? "They know that now!" Wow, thanks for that insight. Dispariging remark about Pelosi having a "tin ear" (!). Something is amiss at Olbermann Spin Zone. Olbermann opines that perhaps people are "angry" at Congress for capitulating on the war. Of course they are. Or maybe on OlbyPlanet they are and at MoveOn.org. No matter, Olby knows all.
The most "prominent" mayor leaves the Republican party. If he runs, who does he hurt? Yawn. Bloomberg was a Democrat up until his run for Mayor. The man is no eeeeeeevil Republican. He is and always has been a liberal but that doesn't stop Keith from getting super excited over someone "leaving" the Republican Party. Great Thanks Craig.
Ah, the real story of the evening. Soldiers in Afghanistan killing children. They knew they were in there despite the fact a high value Al-Qaeda target was in there. Keith praises his network (never criticises) for reporting this story. Welcome Wesley Clark, still wanting to be President and still a member of the loony left. Why is he on Olby's show? I leave that to clear thinking readers. Olbermann clearly cares about the children here. Nevermind the children blown up and killed in Iraq, we are just going to portray the US Army as out to get the kids. "Does this not underscore the need for consistent reporting?" asks Olby. Of course, says the General who was fired for reasons that are still unknown today He manages to praise himself for his actions in Kosovo while discussing Afghanistan. Gen. Clark surprisingly agrees that the idea of reporting on terrorist attacks helps terrorists is bad. It's borderline censorship despite the fact the NETWORKS MAKE THE DECISIONS FOR THEMSELVES - NOT THE GOVERNMENT. "Amen," says Hauptmann in response to Clark. Keithy asks a poignant question, "Are we devoting our resources to fighting the war on terror properly?" (paraphrase) Clark goes into some spiel about Saddam not being connected to 9/11 despite the fact that the President has stated on NUMEROUS occasions that Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11. Again, on Olby Planet, irrelevant. Massive love fest ensues. Much easier for Clark to handle than O'Reilly. Jabba is extremely proud to have the fired general.
#4: Abu Ghraib again. HOW BLOODY OLD IS THIS STORY? Olby believes that the President knew about everything despite lacking any evidence. He brings in General Karpinski who has been demoted and reprimanded for her behavior at Abu Ghraib. But I am willing to bet she thinks the President knew about everything that was happening. That's why she's on OlbyZone! Blab blab blab. Karpinski gets to talk for a while about nothing new. Donald Rumsfeld's name gets dropped a few times to suggest he was behind "torture" and "gitmoize" Abu Ghraib. Where was General Karpinski in all of this? Did she protest? Did she file complaints? Apparently not. She just received a demotion and reprimand, not to mention a book deal. Moving along. She has been unable to appear on a program that is not sympathetic to anti-Bush/Rumsfeld sentiments since her interview with O'Reilly way back when. Great Thanks.
Oddball: Three point shot. Norwegian kids messing around with high speed train.
Newsmakers: Some hotsauce thing. Some woman didn't win the lottery. Woman gets three days in jail for grabbing an officer's genitals and driving drunk. She's an aspiring model. Guess what kind of model says Olby? Hand model! Ha! The laughs never end.
#3: Incredibly deep story about slander on the internets. It's nice to see Adam's Apple Olbermann concerned about nasty comments made about women. Not that he has ever said anything about Paris Hilton and her face. Karl Kronenberger comes in to help Constitutional Scholar Olbermahn with the first amendment. Not much happens here in the way of the vast left wing conspiracy. I'll spare you the inane nature of the interview. Great thanks.
Keeping Tabs: Paris Hilton in jail and references to her face. Nancy Grace "driving Melinda Duckett" to suicide. O'Reilly not covering bombs in Iraq!
#2: Um, there never was a number two story. Go figure. Maybe there was not enough vast right conspiracy material.
#1: Finally, the most important part of the evening, more on the premier Olbsession of Mr. O'Reilly. You know, that guy that destroys him every night in the ratings despite getting no help from far-left websites like DailyKos and MoveOn.org? Olby fantasizes that O'Reilly upset he did not have the credentials to be in the Mets clubhouse. It's all about baseball. As usual, Olbermann and his Laughing Stagehand managed to pull about every clip of "stuff that does not matter" that "Fox Noise" thinks is important to prove Fat Ass's point. The funny part is that every story that Olbermann brings up is from the END OF THE SHOW. Sort of like how they do thing on OlbyLand with the women hating segments at the end of the show? O'Reilly does not do woman hating segments, but rather lighter ones. He saves the real stories for the first like any other news program. But you wouldn't know that the way Olby spliced everything together in his #1! story. Bring in FAR-LEFT Arianna Huffington to pleasure Keith's conspiracy theories. Of course, the sock puppet plays right into Adam's Apple Olbermann's profound questioning and Arianna suggests that O'Reilly has been talking about Paris Hilton and Anna Nicole Smith's baby. Funny part is - HE NEVER DID! That was Greta Van Susteren - with all due respect. Again, a usual left love fest. I'd love to see Arianna on O'Reilly's program to actually get questioned rather than the softballs Olbermann comes up with. Arianna says O'Reilly is pretending to be a journalist. HA! The discredited Sports Guy, who never did anything except work on Sports Center and make not witty comments is somehow a real journalist? Ugh, I can't take it anymore. Really. I'm done for this evening. Watch it for yourself if you can stomach it.
In the Media Matters minute, some guy flushing two items blocking a pipe (bra and underwear), thank you Keith for that. Someone named Woody for the silver - yeah ok whatever, DailyKos must be asleep this week. Gold: Newt Gingrich! There were way too many sources for this recapper to track but I found the right one: Think Progress. I should have checked there first. At least the Laughing Stagehand managed to find one conservative for tonight.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name collapsed at #4,539 on amazon.com (necessitating a 80% off sale - ha! HA!), but "Culture Warrior" is #375. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) You can have it for $4.59 - ha!. The OlbyTome is still limp and can't rank; O'Reilly's book is #1,039 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. Tuesday's Hour of Spin managed a dismal, humiliating and MediaMatters backing lacking third place finish in total viewers coupled with a laughable fourth in that "money demo" Olbsession. Fourth Place. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 1 [LOW]
