"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Oralmann bellowed about the Iraq government missing its benchmarks. The President is "still not listening to any of us" which means not listening to DailyKos and OlbyLoons on policy. More GonzoGate fascination. Is the Attorney General a "moron"? Great reporting, Keith. Defending Michael Moore who ranted on CNN about "Sicko." Attacks on a Republican Senator for marital infidelity (any mention of B.J. Clinton? Nope) coupled with an attack on St. Rudy.
#5: Olbersturmfuhrer pretends to be the messenger for the American people while reciting casualty numbers for Iraq. Keith decides to "truthsquad" (ha!) the President's remark regarding troop levels. The President stated he never wanted to be a war President, yet he "started one in Iraq." Hey Fat Ass, remember 9/11? The war in Afghanistan? Did those events not make him a "war President"? Or was 9/11 just a criminal act by a bunch of morons like those other terrorist attacks? Keith implies that the administration linked 9/11 to Iraq which, coincidentally, Olby had no proof to back that up. The reason? It was never asserted that Iraq had anything to do with 9/11. In fact, it would said MULTIPLE TIMES that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Regardless, Jabba seems convinced the administration did. Keith still baffled by the fact that it takes time for a surge to actually surge rather than happen immediately when it was declared. It pains Keith to admit the last brigrade to enter Iraq became operational in June. More non reporting and instead filler clips. Conspiracy theories that Michael Chertoff is orchestrating a fear campaign. More clips of only Republicans who might disagree with the President. Of course there are clips of Democrats (Harry Reid, et. al.) Enter Keith's brain, the Wolffe Man. It's no longer a "question of whether or not the President is in denial." Keith thinks that the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee can dictate policy by running ads against Republicans up for election. Glad to know where my foreign policy would come from on OlbyPlanet. More disappointment that a withdraw bill could not pass. Wolffe Man declares the next two weeks are important. OK, just like Shuster and his resignation dates. Keith makes fart joke about Secretary Chertoff's "gut feeling." hehe. Breaking wind. Editorial on Michael Moore's "shut out" of Wolf Blitzer, Sanjay Gupta and CNN. Hooray Michael Moore accusing anyone who disagrees with him as liars! Typical Olby strategy.
#4: Gonzo-Gate! [Ding!] Alberto Gonzales on the Patriot Act. Clever caption referencing Hogan's Heroes. Enter Keith's other brain, the Perfessor. The Attorney General is lying, or pretty much lying. He should resign. Keith quotes a columnist who references Watergate [Ding!] and the administration is a disgrace. Shocking column commentary. Very dramatic reciting of how damaged the oldest and most revered department is. Discussion of Democrats attempting to cut funds off that go to the VP. Suggestions of impeachment. Great thanks, as always.
Oddball: Fat woman joke (her name was Ima Hog - ha!), some flame retardant, wrecking ball falling on a car, another crane mishap. Another plug for Moore and CNN not winning (apparently that is not new - huh?)
Newsmakers: Madonna (Laughing Stagehand laughs), flying lawn chair, James Burdette. Keith throws paper.
#3: Keith lectures us about fairness. Any guests that ever argue another point? No. Long clip of Michael moore attacking CNN. Keith goes after the MSM and their coverage of the health care system. Eeeeeeeeeeevil Big Business which is protecting that status quo and essentially wants you to die. Ms. Maddow sets up this hilarious idea that fairness just means allowing both points of view even when "one side is wrong." Oh, THAT'S FAIR. So, when you arbitrarily decide what's right, meaning that there can be no other view or idea on an issue, what is there left to discuss? Is there anyone that follows this logic? Why discuss ANYTHING? You're just always right, Ms. Maddow! Hence why you appear on the Hour of Spin because no one ever disagrees! "Fake Balance" by "Exxon" discussing Global Warming (forget all those scientists who are now stepping out of the shadows to suggest the hype is just hot air). Hauptmann talks about the "proverbial" [Ding!] fat cats conspiring to stop genuine health care debate and reform. Maddow does the sock puppet behavior by answering that the thing that is going to change things is Michael Moore's movie! Bush administration is bad. Great Thanks.
#2: The real Springfield of the Simpsons.
Keeping tabs: Nicole Ritchie's DUI trial, Tori Spelling finds religion
#1: Keith brings up Bob Livingston's marital infidelity. Senator Vitter attacks abound for being a hypocrite (which he might be). Dana Milbank comes in to mop up the Hour of Spin by telling Keith who Senator Vitter is. Olby worries Mr. Vitter might have violated the law. More jokes about sex and pants down. This really a huge deal because Senator Vitter endorsed St. Rudy which I guess dooms his campaign. Whatever.
In the Media Matters minute, Bronze, a guy of the Republican Party of Louisiana for criticising someone in his own party, Senator Vitter (Blue Blog Source, ClubLefty), "comedian" Rush Limbaugh (Blue Blog Source: MediaMatters), gold to "Bill-O" for hoping the mission in Iraq succeeds (Blue Blog Source: MediaMatters).
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's soared to #17,640 at amazon.com, but "Culture Warrior" is #1,041. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome sadly remained off the radar at Barnes and Noble; O'Reilly's book is #1,196 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. Monday's Hour of Spin's numbers were unavailable at the time of this writing. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 3 [GUARDED]
