"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Monkeymann barked the opening spiel: Declare victory and stay in, "Mister" Bush's "dog and pony show", interview with Chris Dodd (D), Fred Thompson doesn't go to church, Rosie O'Donnell, Britney Spears, and more. It's hump day at Olbermann Watch.
#5: Petraeus, troop reductions, Tony Snow's "spin" (obligatory hectoring footage), and Olbermann's Brain. CC snickered about insanity, used "Democrat" as an adjective (ooh! will the blue blogs crucify him?), and chuckled about how the Dems may be able to force quicker withdrawals of troops. Great thanks.
Next up: Reickhoff who, oddly, says he hears from the troops that they want a political solution. Maybe he's talking about the Iranian troops. Incredibly Fat Ass slammed Bush for only listening to people who agree with him. (Say, isn't Chris Dodd Olby's guest in the next segment?) PR swiftly dittoed: yeah, that's exactly what the troops are saying. After waving the favorite fright wig, the draft, he got Great Thanksed by the un-American Olbermann.
#4: Another politico as a guest on The Hour of Spin. Care to guess which party he belongs to? Before you take a stab in the dark, drop everything else and check out The List. Pretty incredible, ain't it? This from the guy who complains "Mister" Bush doesn't listen to opposing viewpoints!
A tough, no-nonsense interview, as Monkeymann grilled Chris Dodd (D) and pummelled him with tough questions. Here are Oralmann's pointed inquiries to the (D) senator:
After plugs for Dodd's "remarkable" book, "great" book, "remarkable" book, he was Thanksed. Oh by the way, Mr Merkle gushed that Dodd has been a "steadfast war opponent". Good thing he didn't bother to mention that Dodd voted for the war. That sort of thing doesn't get mentioned on OlbyPlanet.
After a quote read to tell viewers that "Mister" Bush is a "downright moron" and another fine, fine, edition of oddball came #3: Fred Thompson doesn't go to church. He's a skirt-chaser. CC (the other CC, not Olbermann's Brain) was then asked about Norman Hsu and Hillary. Yes, the power and influence of this site has finally shamed the discredited baseball card collector into acknowledging news that every other news program has been on top of for almost two weeks. Another victory for Olbermann Watch! CC was actually permitted to describe it as "potentially damaging". Uh oh. Quickly changing the subject to Obama, Olby said he was "trying to polish his foreign policy credentials". Great thanks.
After a "Fixed News" [Ding!] reference, came #2: Rosie O'Donnell, Barbara Walters, Donald Trump, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, Owen Wilson, Jon Stewart. #1: Britney Spears with the creepy Michael Musto.
In the Media Matters Minute, Bathtub Boy didn't disappoint. Yes, he once again fed The Greatest Olbsession of them all. First a smear of "Fixed News" [Ding!] for a spokesman making a snarky comment about that most hallowed of all the blue blogs, TVNewser (Blue Blog Source: what else? TVNewser). Then it was on to The Big Kahunna (Blue Blog Source: Media Matters). Gawd, can't Olbermoronn get a new shtick?
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name is#17,077, while "Culture Warrior" is #2,295. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble still can't find a ranking for the OlbyTome; O'Reilly's book is #1,803 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. No KO lying on tonight's Hour of Spin about beating Mr Bill. He didn't. It was not even close both in total viewers and in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo".
