"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
The infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann behaved like a typical blow-hard and bellowed his way though the usual dubious opening spiel. The President's "brain" subpoenaed. Clip of Chuckie Schumer (D-NY) about telling the truth. More serious Olbsession Gonzo-Gate "lies." The Edelman letter gets a P.S. apology from Secretary Gates topped off by the "nexus of terror and politics." Read: Konspiracy Theory. The cat that knows when you'll die. More J.K. Rowling regurgitated video. You wonder why it took me so long.
#5: Keith is dizzied by the DNC talking points he spews out - oh wait the most 'scandal ridden day ever.' The Democrats aren't doing the "people's business" and specifically not protecting them from a "rogue" President and a "lawless" executive branch. Remember folks, this is Keith the unbiased journalist. Gono-Gate blab and lamenting that Paul Clement is responsible for investing the AG on perjury charges. The White House is an "expert" in "out of control" behavior. Another clip of Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for about a minute or so. No ID of his party. Bring in ever reliable David Schuster. Surprisingly, Slippery hasn't started a countdown to when AG 'Gonzo' is going to step down or be fired. A "disasterous" 24 hours for Gonzales. Everyone contradicts him. This is seemingly a clear case of perjury, according to some. Olbermahn wonders why Republicans have not jumped to join Keith's Gonzo-Gate crusade. Mention of Sen. Arlen Specter naturally. Paul Clement reports to the White House which means if the President does not want a "perjury investigation of his close friend Alberto Gonzales" then there won't be one. Notice how Slippery makes it sound as if he won't do it to protect his buddy. Sadly Congress can't force Clement. They'll just have to impeach the President or the Attorney General. Olbersturmfuhrer caps off the session with a Watergate [Ding!] reference. And a mention of Robert Bork as solicitor general then. Ok?
"This would surely qualify as a watershed moment [Ding!] or even a Watergate [Ding!] moment." Olby is, naturally, talking about the subpeona of Karl Rove, the "brain." To help Olby out, he brings in his own brain, the Wolffe Man. Anti-Congress bluster from Tony Snow. The deep ethical hole the administration has dug itself. Remember, Olby is a "journalist." As is Wolffe Man who opines the administration could not get far enough away from the 2000 pledge to restore honor to the White House. Watergate [Ding!] figure Fred Fielding brought in to "stonewall." Valerie Plame mention. Is there any political leverage to clean up the President's act? asks Olby. Not really, except to impeach Gonzo says Wolffie. I woke up when Keith mentioned the low polls that Congress is getting. Wolffe Man says it breaks both ways vis a vis party. Back to sleep - great thanks.
#4: I think in an attempt to sully and insult a journalist and a legacy that Fat Ass cannot, will not, and should not match ever, he quotes his hero Edward R. Murrow saying, "We should not confuse dissent with disloyalty." Even more HILARIOUS is the fact that he mentions Senator Joseph McCarthy, a man who Mr. Murrow was not in agreement with but brought on to respond to Mr. Murrow unlike say a one.....Edward...R....Olbermann. No one disagrees on OlbyPlanet. If you do, you're banned! Eric Edelman's eeeeeeeeevil letter suggesting Senator Clinton shouldn't discuss withdrawl. Quotes of Sec. Gates's letter to Mrs. Clinton. Unbiased Democrat Gen. Clark comes in to discuss. Why does Mr. Edelman still have a job? wonders Olby. Good question, says Mr. Clark! He even furthers a favorite of mine, Konspiracy Theories. Clark believes it was a coordinated attack orchestrated by the White House through the Pentagon because of Mrs. Clinton's profile. Un-huh. Even if that were true, why would it come as a surprise that a letter from an UNDER SECRETARY who REPORTS TO THE DEFENSE SECRETARY who REPORTS TO THE PRESIDENT go through the White House? hum. Guess who is behind the whole thing, kiddies? THE EEEEEEEEEVIL KARL ROVE. NATURALLY. Clark believes that Sec. Gates should be consulting congress regarding policy. WHAT? Since when has Congress dictated foreign policy? They control the purse strings, nothing else. Sec. Gates carries out the wishes of the President. Want to end the war? Cut off the money. If you don't have the guts to do it, stop whining. Clark wonders why Gates didn't bring Sen. Clinton over for breakfast.....to discuss things. Who wanted this quarrel? The White House. Breaking News: Pat Tillman cover-up which is a legitimate story. But if you think this is going to be covered without mentioning the horrible people in the White House, you'd be drunk like me. Because Clark wonders how far up it went not to give any indication of what happened to Pat Tillman. You can be sure that idea didn't stop at the two or three star level says Clark. Tillman was a political used by the administration for its purposes when it suited them. Great thanks.
Oddball: A dog chase. Basketball hoop collapses on a guy.
#3: The nexus of politics and terror. Konspiracy theory of leaked TSA memo and its "timing." Another mention of Arlen Specter criticising AG Gonzales. Relevance? None. Will Bunch of the Philadelphia Daily News plays along with the Konspiracy Theory a little bit. He says the airport TSA agents did a good job - not a team player at that moment. He does wonder why it was leaked at the moment. It bumped all those Gonzo stories off the MSM. He does a weird eye roll after talking about dry runs for a while. He sucks up to Keith at the end by saying he "learned from the best" when Keith shows a clipping from a student newspaper they worked at together. Keith's why he went into journalism. Eek.
#2: The cat that knows when people are going to die. Regurgitated video.
Keeping tabs: Lindsay Lohan. Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband robbed. Keith does a bad German accent.
#1: More regurgitated video from the mothership of the J.K. Rowling interview.
In the Media Matters minute, some water supervisor. Runner up, Bill-O! Funny voice and difference between Daily Kos and O'Reilly's website. Of course, Olbermahn can't fathom the fact that one is a blog and the other a message board. Keith cites a post threatening Senator Clinton's life on his message board. Mr. O'Reilly suggested this post was planted - and he may have been right. The source for this story was naturally DailyKos because Oralmann loves to shill for them. Our very own J$ has once again debunked the KosKiddies as well as their water carrier here. Gold, funny named "Coutlergeist" because of some weird Konspiracy Theory that she somehow admitted Fox News shills for the Republican party. Do you shill for anyone, like Kos, Olby? Or the entire liberal establishment?
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's struggled at humiliating, painful and otherwise embarrassing #15,587 on amazon.com, but "Culture Warrior" is #1,914. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome is still unranked at Barnes and Noble; O'Reilly's book is #1,341 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. Wednesday's Hour of Spin managed a laughable and typical third place place finish in total viewers as well as that "money demo" Olbsession. Source. Worth mentioning that Mr. Bill's money demo was bigger than Countdown's entire viewship. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 2 [LOW]
