"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
The slovenly, political hack was at it again tonight. Gonzo-Gate spreads! [Ding!] White House is not budging. Felon rehabilitation program with star pupil John Dean on a White House in Crisis and in denial! [Ding!] The nominee for Joint Chiefs has not gotten the "surge memo." Senator Ted Stevens under investigation, forget William Jefferson. Eeeeeeeeevil Rupert Murdoch buys Dow Jones and WSJ. Weird question as to why people would have sex with Michael Musto. Who would?
#5: "What looks like a flat footed lie by the Attorney General..." Remember, this is Keith the unbiased journalist folks! Yapping and whining like a little Yorkie and new Watergate reminder of the "Thursday night massacre of U.S. Attorneys." Did Gonzo lie when he denied internal disagreements? Clip of Tony Snow (Keith's personal friend). "So-called terrorist surveillance program." Arlen Specter again because he says something against the administration and is a Republican. Convicted felon of Republican hating books John Dean to help Olby out with "White Houses in crisis." "You've worked in White Houses that are in crisis, characterize this one..." Let's play hardball! Dean senses a distance between the AG and the White House. Der Fuhrer wonders if the letter about the Terrorist Surveillance Program not being called such is a "tea leaf" [Ding!] before a White House crumbles? The Felon replied that the weakness of the defense is telling. Gonzo has several days to fix his testimony. Hm, not good enough thinks Olby. "Let's back up to impeachment," says Olby. Do those House members have grounds and does it create a moral imperative for the House Leadership to pursue? Of course there are grounds, says the felon. Maladministration is not a high crime or misdemeanor but there's "a lot here." Olbersturmfuhrer wonders if there is a precedent. There was something close about 75 years ago, but no one has been as incompetent as Gonzo! Great thanks.
The eeeeeevil Vice President stood by "convicted perjurer" and a man who attempted to do something "so unamerican" (Edelman). Clip from Larry King Live interview with Vice President Cheney. "Perhaps not surprisingly, Mister Cheney was less than honest about Senator Clinton's letter." Water carrier time! Keith goes through a litany of excuses for the Senator. Shocking! Unbiased journalist!
Well kids, it's another OlbyPlanet session. The graphic read: "Reality on the Ground." You know what that means? Someone said something that computes with OlbyReality that everything is horrible in Iraq and that nothing is going to work. Not the surge, not conviction and fortitude, not a new strategy or a new General - nothing! Hence Mr. O'Hanlon naturally receiving WPITW without any coverage of what he actually said in the rag of record NYT. An Admiral to be Chairman of the Joint Chiefs has questions about Iraq and the possibility of success - security is most important. Troops won't make much of a difference without that - A HA! GOTCHA EVIL BUSH ADMINISTRATION! Wait, all he said was that they needed security and throwing a ton of troops in without creating security means it won't work. Well, duh. Furthermore, the soon to be chairman agreed that there has not been much political progress in Iraq - A HA! GOTCHA AGAIN EVIL BUSH ADMINISTRATION. Oh wait, no one disagrees with that. Yay - Dana Milbank sans ostentatious wear. Milbank thinks if the Admiral testifies one more time like that he'll go on a hunting trip with the Vice President - har har. Let's make fun of accidental shootings. Sophisticated journalism. "Dana, if he's not a yes man, how did he get a job in the administration?" - Keith. Again, non-water carrier journalism here. Milbank tacitly suggests Keith not to get carried away.
#4: Culture of Corruption - Republicans only. Graphic of Ted Stevens with corruption under his face. A recent bill passed cutting down on pork should have been called the "Neutered Ted Stevens act." ha. Actually, I agree with Olby here. Sen. Stevens is one of the biggest offenders when it comes to wasteful spending. But the real question is, what happened to Rep. Jefferson with the 100,000 in his freezer? Culture of Corruption? Anyone? Excitement over federal corruption probe into Ted Stevens. Slippery Shuster! Sweet. Slippery comes in to help Olby out with investigation details. Bribes of lawmakers, investigation details. Yawn. What is the reaction in the Senate, asks Keith? The Senate is an exclusive club, says Shuster. No one saying anything. Some lawmakers away from the camera say it's foolish to say anything until the thing is over. Will the ethnics bill meet any obstruction in the Senate? How does Sen. Stevens stand? He's against it of course. It's a sunshine bill, says Shuster. Of course everything is golden in a Democratic congress.
#3: The "evil empire" of Rupert Murdoch. For some reason, Rachel Maddow comes in to consult Keith. This is far more than a business acquisition, opines Oralmann. Konspiracy theory that news is a worthless investment and really is a microphone for his personal views and is going to be the biggest unchallenged voice in the media. "Nothing to see here, right?" vis a vis the editorial board's protection by a committee. "Wow, a committee," is all Maddow can muster. Intelligent. Thank you. Oh, Murdoch made similar promises before, the Times of London was respectable before he got a hold of it. Any chance of a reader backlash, hopes Keith? "The Journal's editorial page is just to the right of Atilla the Hun." HA! HA HA! The most original Olbyism of the night! And what you are you, Olbermahn? Just to the left of Karl Marx? Right wing politics = stretch the truth. DailyKos mention of a lawsuit filed against FNC who fired two employees claiming FNC told them to distort the news. Oh, this is getting to the really big story Maddow thinks. This is to make news worse! Konspiracy theory! The work of Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity is billed as news - NO IT'S NOT. IT'S OPINION. NEWS ANALYSIS. EARTH TO ERR AMERICA. Ugh. Countdown must be hard news. Rachael Maddow, the Ministry of Truth says Fat Ass.
#2: Golf course strippers. "Fore-play" tee hee. "Hole in one, you are hooking to the left and I've had trouble with my putts all day." hehe. Sex jokes! Regurgitated video from a LOCAL news channel.
#1: Creepy Michael Musto on the reasons people have sex. Enough said.
In the Media Matters minute, Rudy Guiliani claiming he cut taxes but not to the degree Olby's source tells him: Blue Blog Source GraniteGrok. DHS gets the silver for "bogus" dry run claims from Blue Blog source The Raw Story.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olberman's name is #14,087 at amazon.com, while "Culture Warrior" is #2,439. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome is noticeably unranked at at Barnes and Noble; O'Reilly's book is #1,404 there. Sadly, Thursday's Hour of Spin was mired at fourth Place in the Man on Fan beloved, coveted all important "key demo." Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 4 [GUARDED]
