"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Keith Oralmann barked the opening spiel with special relish: Funding the war is a "money pit", ooh Bush made a grammatical mistake, Larry Craig, Dem debate, the Bonds ball, and "part one" of a series on why Fox should "fire Billo". Geez, Bathman. To paraphrase your Boy Wonder, why this obsession over O'Reilly? When did an O'Reilly comment ever kill someone? Intellectual bankruptcy on parade: it's hump day at Olbermann Watch.
#5: "Fear mongering", because Secy Gates did not mention 9/11 in testimony this afternoon. Three words in his transcript weren't spoken. Start the investigation! OK. Olbermann's Brain chuckled, tittered, sniggered, and chortled. Graphic:"War Is Sell". Again Olby wants a filibuster. Brain tells everyone the Dems need more numbers in the Senate. This has been an unpaid political announcement. Olbermannijad was upset that 76 Senators voted for a non-binding resolution branding the Islamic Revolutionary Guard of Iran a "terrorist organization". Horrors! Great thanks.
To elevate the intellectual level, call in a failed radio talk show host! White House politicizing 9/11. Worse than ever, said RM. Shameless! Olby: "I think you're right". (Don't bother, Keith. She ain't interested.) The moveon ad criticized by the House. Olby: "Why would a Democrat vote for this?" Repeating the Olbermann lie that the phrase was "coined by comedian Rush Limbaugh". 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. Great thanks.
"Mister" Bush makes a grammatical error. Wow.
"Breaking news": "Storm clouds" around Bill O'Reilly's "racist remark". Geez, Bathman. To paraphrase your Boy Wonder, why this obsession over O'Reilly? When did an O'Reilly comment ever kill anyone?
#4: Giuliani (R) "fundriser" fired. Larry Craig (R) in court again on charges of "disorderly condact". Oh, and he's a "right wing water carrier" [Ding!]. Dana Milbank, sans sharp suit, cracked bad puns and talked about the eeevil Republicans. Norman Shu? Who he? Paging Jack Malone. Hsu's a Missing Person on OlbyPlanet.
O'Reilly blasphemes, lies, and now may have "met his Waterloo". "Late developments!" Geez, Bathman. To paraphrase your Boy Wonder, why this obsession over O'Reilly? When did an O'Reilly comment ever kill anyone?
#3: O'Reilly attack du jour, and we pause to note another milestone. Bathtub Boy's attacks on Mr Bill have now exceeded the 300 mark. In fact that happened a few days ago, so we're late noting it. But it's never too late to applaud Edward R Olbermoronn's Great Olbsession turning another century mark.
In tonight's installment, O'Reilly's like a pothole. He's in "big trouble", just like Don Imus. Olbermann promised "the full context", but did he deliver? Of course not--it was Another Olbermann Lie. Herr Olbermahn played clips from last night's Factor. Did he play any of last night's comments from Juan Williams? As we thought: no. Did he quote what Matt Lauer on his own network said? No. He brought in his far-left pal Robinson and bandied the R-word ("raaaaacist!") back and forth. Olby magnanimously said he would "play devil's advocate" by comparing O'Reilly to Al Campanis. Yeah, thanks, pal. Keithy said it's a "tipping point" [Ding!], just like Don Imus. Robinson wasn't Great Thanksed, but he was Pleasured. Geez, Bathman. To paraphrase your Boy Wonder, why this obsession over O'Reilly? When did an O'Reilly comment ever kill anyone?
At this point we pause our recap for an OlbyWatch flashback. Herr Olbermann's Imus moment: Chicken and Waffles!
We now return to our regularly scheduled recap.
After a "Fixed News" [Ding!] reference, it was on to #2: Barry Bonds's baseball. #1: Debate preview with The Drooler (he asks Olby if he's warming up to Hillary, and Olby replies he doesn't have anything to warm up from--in other words, he's already hot for Hill, as if we didn't know). In the Media Matters Minute, Bathtub Boy attacked Alexis Glick, who was just fine when she worked for NBC, but now is working for "Fixed Noise" [Ding!] and doing "heavy lifting" for the "water carriers" [Ding!] on "Fixed News" [Ding!]. Plus Rudy Giuliani (R), and the winner: "Coultergeist". Was this a new show or a rerun?
Dogs That Did Not Bark: For Keith Olbermann a news story is only news when it fits his agenda. Let's set the wayback machine to September 21, when Monkeymann decided to suggest all the Republican Presidential candidates are racists. How so? Because they weren't participating in a debate on PBS with Tavis Smiley. To quote Mr Merkle:
OLBERMAHN: The Republicans' direct little race secret. GEORGE W. BUSH: My advice to whoever will be our nominee is to reach out to the African-American community.Â OLBERMAHN: So why are all of them refusing to attend a black-focused debate?But wait, there's more:
OLBERMAHN: When the Republican Presidential Candidates refuse to debate at Black or Hispanic venues, why are they not being asked if they are as racist at that seems?... How big is what the Republicans have done here in not doing this; how big of a slap is this to black voters?The only problem is: it's not true. The PBS forum is going on as scheduled, and at least half of the GOP candidates have agreed to participate. Now maybe Edward R Olbermann knew this all along, and was just tossing another mackerel to the flipper-clapping sycophants on the blue blogs. But even if he didn't know then, he certainly knows now, given that the forum will air tomorrow night.
But there has not been one word from Olbermann correcting, clarifying, or even updating his original "report". Yes, this is why Herr Olbermann is still a left-wing water carrier and a slovenly political hack.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name slipped to #33,834 on amazon, while "Culture Warrior" has risen to #1,219. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble still can't find the OlbyTome anywhere on its ranking radar; O'Reilly's book is #1,925 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. Tuesday's numbers were again not close. The "trend" promised for the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann is officially over, both in total viewers and in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo".
