"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Finally the week is over, and what do you know, Keith Oralmann is still pounding the Limbaugh "controversy". (Geez, Bathman. To paraphrase your sidekick The Boy Wonder, why this obsession over Rush? When did a Rush comment ever kill anyone?) How do we know Bush is not lying? Plus the religious right, the sports liar Marion Jones (this portion was clearly edited into the prerecorded spiel later), and more. It's casual Friday at Olbermann Watch.
#5: Six and a half years of lies. "Brutal interrogation practices" (like face slapping). Bush (R) "alleged", Rockefeller (D) stated. The language of OlbyPlanet. James Risen of the Times regurgitated the contents of his report. Then when Baer came on the scene they revived The Hour of Spin's torture never works mantra.
Sigh. Olbermoronn has already embarrassed himself on this subject:
#4: Fundamentalists may go third party if Rudy wins the nomination. Um, isn't this the same story Olby has already covered this week? Well yeah, but Countdown is more than ever a Xerox machine. New poll sez Hillary is the "least polarizing" candidate. Wow, who do you suppose "suggested" this story to Olbermoronn? Reference to the "far right" [Ding!]. Walsh says Hillary is "warm" and "convincing". Another attack on Rudy and it was on to the ritual Great Thanks.
#3: Shock! Republicans raising money with the Limbaugh flap "on the backs" of soldiers, sermonized Rev Olbermahn. How about votevets raising money with the Limbaugh flap, "on the backs" of soldiers? Not a mention, because Keith Oralmann is a hypocrite and a slovenly political hack. His sock puppet guest: a writer for Daily Kos (Keith's favorite charity), who delights in calling people "chickenhawk" and "draft-dodger" and then complains about name-calling (on-screen graphic: "Chicken Hawk Chutzpah"). Oh and he called GOP fundraising on this issue "deplorable", again without mentioning votevets rundraising on this issue. Reference to the "far right" [Ding!].
After "Fixed Noise" [Ding!] came #2: Olby rhapsodized over Marion Jones, comparing her "extraordinary" speech to that of restroom roamer McGreevey (D). Marion Jones has, of course, proved herself to have been a serial liar for years. So why is Monkeymann sticking up for a congenital liar? Birds of a feather. She was guilty of obstruction of justice. Like Scooter Libby. #1: Oddball and more oddball.
In the Media Matters Minute, Fat Ass attacked the "prejudiced" Glenn Beck (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters) and, of course, "Fixed News" [Ding!] (Blue Blog Source: TVNewser). Olbermann repeated a lie from months ago, that Bush "pardoned" Libby. Oh, and Fat Ass also smeared John McCain (Blue Blog Source: Think Progress). Why? He re-used an old joke. Way to go Olby! You would never do that, right? Bill Orally? Comedian Rush Limbaugh. Coultergeist. Fox Noise. Yada yada yada. Man, it's downright scary to contemplate just how much arrogance and how little self-awareness this hockey puck must have!
If it's Friday, it's our weekly assessment of Krazy Keith's masculinity. This week Monkeymann attacked Fox and other broadcasters 31 times. Olby's source (Hillary Clinton's Media Matters) criticized (MS)NBC nine times, but again, Keithy protected his corporate masters with zero criticisms. That makes this week's Olbermann Manhood Quotient: -62 [limper than ultra-limp].
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name sunk to #38,260 on amazon, while "Culture Warrior" is #2,550. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble lists the OlbyTome at #46,557; O'Reilly's book is #2,019 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. On Thursday "Chicken and Waffles" Olbermann managed to crawl out of his third place hole, but again lost overwhelmingly to his nemesis the eeevil Mr Bill, both in total viewers and in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo".
