"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
He's tanned (of course!), rested, and ready, as Keith Oralmann bellows the opening spiel: White House "warmongers" want to bomb Iran, Sy Hersh, "ultra-conservatives" revolt against Rudy, Britney Spears, and--could there by any doubt?--O'Reilly yet again. This is a new show, right? Oh well, it's Blue Monday at Olbermann Watch.
#5: "Chicken and Waffles" Olbermann kicked things off with Bush wanting to go to war with Iran. "It's more sable-rattling", claimed the smooth-talking baseball card collector. Reference to "neocons" [Ding!]. Olby fixation on the non-binding sense-of-the-Senate resolution about the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. How dare the Senate call them terrorists! Sy said it's all part of the "campaign". Olbermannijad said there is no compelling evidence that Iran is developing nuclear weapons, or that any of their military are involved in terrorism. Once more Keith defends Iran. We ask again, is this a new show? Great thanks.
Next up, Richard Wolffe. Man, it's deja vu all over again. Well maybe not. Here's a great example of how no matter what anybody says, Herr Olbermann sticks to his talking points like glue:
WOLFFE MAN: This time around there is no Presidential determination, there is no decision. What you have is a diplomatic track, you have obviously a lot of drumbeats a lot of saber-rattling, but I think we are still some way off that decision....
OLBERMORONN: Is there no diplomatic track because there is no intention of having one?...
WOLFFE MAN: Well the diplomatic track is quite serious right now.
That's Edward R Olbermahn, great journalist, and a hell of a listener! Wolffie, for exposing again how the host of The Hour of Spin is monomaniacal hack: Great Thanks!
After another O'Reilly attack we got #4: Project Rudy resumes. Christian "extremists" might go third party. Olbermann's Brain chortled about a Rudy "backlash", but doubted a third party nomination would happen. Then Olby was off to ridicule Fred Thompson, and Brain sniggered along. Switching to the Dems, Mr Merkle talked about all the money they made, and why Obama won't win just because he has the most moolah. (Hill sends her appreciation.) Great thanks.
Another O'Reilly attack, and then yet another O'Reilly attack led to #3: Still on top of that yet another O'Reilly attack! Yeah this is the same story as before. Because Olby insisted this would be Bill's "waterloo", and since it ain't happening, then why not flog the story for yet another day? This was a supposed-to-be-funny comedy bit with Olby playing someone being interviewed by an O'Reilly producer. References: "falafel" [Ding!], Olby's lie about Malmedy [Ding!], Andrea Mackris [Ding!], Fox Noise [Ding!], loofahs [Ding!], Malmedy again [Ding!], Mackris again [Ding!], loofahs again [Ding!]. Has Bill O'Reilly ever mentioned KarmaBites? Or Merlot? Or Keith's being hung like a thumbtack? No, but all Monkeymann knows how to do is make personal attacks, in fact the same personal attacks he has made over and over. (This is a new show, right?) Attn Dan Abrams: get a copy of this tape off to the Emmy committee immediately. The Pulitzer people will want to see it too.
After a "Fixed News" [Ding!] reference, it was on to #2: Fatal airport arrest (regurgitated video), Keith Urban, Mylee Cyrus, . #1: Britney Spears! In the Media Matters Minute, Dana Perino (R): this had something to do with Burma but the upshot of it is that Olbermannijad concluded that the prisoners in Gitmo are "very innocent". No we're not making this up. Bathtub Boy had to make an equivalence between betraying your country and a leader betraying his underlings, so he attacked "Fixed News" [Ding!] Col David Hunt (Blue Blog Source: Think Progress). Hey Keith, tell us about your service record. Oh that's right, you can't even drive a car. Worst, courtesy of some cherry-picked incomplete quotes: Michael Medved (Blue Blog Source: Daily Kos).
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name sunk to #23,248 on amazon, while "Culture Warrior" is #2,639. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble lists the OlbyTome at #39,743; O'Reilly's book is #2,001 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. On Friday the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann could do no better than a third place finish in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo". Harrrrr!
