"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Keith Oralmann bellowed the opening spiel: A-Jad speaks, Condi Rice, fake terror threats, "Mister" Bush and "the far right", Britney Spears, and more! Keith is back with a blueblogapalooza, which makes it a Blue Monday (in more ways than one!) at Olbermann Watch.
#5: Dems spar with a "lame duck" [Ding!] White House, and A-Jad speaks at CU. It's "free speech" and "higher learning", and Bollinger gave "the most brutal introduction of all time". Clip of Condi saying A-Jad at ground zero would be a "travesty". Clip of A-Jad wanting to see ground zero. The Wolffe Man thought the speech "succeeded" even though A-Jad looked like "a fool". Herr Olbermann was quick to note that see, A-Jad really didn't deny the holocaust and showed another clip (no homosexuals in Iran). Wolffie was astute enough to contradict Olby's claim that A-Jad was not really denying the holocaust, but Merkle recovered by complaining that A-Jad wasn't allowed to go to ground zero, which Wolffe Man dittoed. He added that the rise of A-JAd is Bush's fault because he's been "baiting" Iran for years, and--surprise!--Wolffie dittoed that as well. Of course there was the obligatory "administration drumbeat for war" and other golden oldies, which culminated in the ritual Great Thanks.
Next Edward R Olbermann had to apologize to Sen Levin for claiming he voted to condemn moveon, when he actually voted no on the resolution that passed. On OlbyPlanet, Dems get the apologies that Repubs (or eeevil Foxians) don't.
#4: Bush's Brain [Ding!] comments on Hillary, a new book on "Mister" Bush, all to cue the entrance of Dana Milbank, without weird wardrobe. Olby ragged on Bill Sammon for asking "Mister" Bush about the moveon ad, comparing him to Jeff Gannon. Even Dana distanced himself from that smear; it's kind of fun to see one of the OlbyToadies squirm a bit in the Seat of Honor. Olbermoronn objected to Bush likening himself to Harry Truman, and suggested maybe it should have been Truman Capote. Wow, two homophobic slurs in the space of three minutes. Something else Krazy Keith has in kommon with A-Jad. Great thanks.
After yet another O'Reilly attack (Blue Blog Source: Media Matters), we got #3: politics, terror, nexus, lexis, goose, gander, yada yada yada (Blue Blog Sources: Think Progress and Raw Story). One-time Republican, now lefty (though not identified as such) Fein was there to press all the buttons: it's fear, it's misrepresentation, and he even played the Valerie Plame card! You know he got Great Thanksed.
#2: Britney Spears (lengthy regurgitated video from the Today show), rumored Brady Bunch lesbian love nest, O.J., Miss USA, Katy Couric. #1: Mars.
In the Media Matters Minute, it was time to feed The Olbsession yet again, because one O'Reilly attack per show just isn't enough. First though, an attack on David Vitter (R) (Blue Blog Source: Daily Kos, Olbermahn's favorite charity). Mr Bill was attacked for criticizing an emailer as being from "far left loonville". Yeah, that's really tough talk. He should have called Brit Hume a "right wing water carrier". That would be perfectly fine on OlbyPlanet, where standards are always double. The winner turned out to be Rush Limbaugh (Blue Blog Source: Media Matters). We got Another Olbermann Lie as the discredited baseball card collector claimed Limbaugh was first to use the "betrayus pun". A lie because it wasn't Rush who coined it, it was a caller. Because it wasn't used against our troops or Petraeus, it was used on a politician. And because the first media appearance of this insulting slander against General Petraeus was, as we know, perpetrated by the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann. Keithy, when are you going to grow a pair and just admit your involvement in this smear, instead of trying to weasel out of it and deflect attention to everyone else but you? Sissy.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name is #31,573, while "Culture Warrior" is #3,307. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble still can't find a ranking for the OlbyTome; O'Reilly's book is #1,964 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. Again Friday wasn't even close, as the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann once again lost overwhelmingly to his bete noir, the eeevil O'Reilly, both in total viewers and in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo".
