"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Fresh from seeing his beloved Yankees lose (how sweet that was), Keith Oralmann prated through his opening spiel about another nexus of something. Clip of Press Secretary Dana Perinno. Democrats might vote to "hand over more of the constitution to the Whtie House." FISA vote. Project Rudy continues with an all important story about Rudy Giuliani booed at the Yankees game (must have made up for that loss, eh Keith?). Princess Diana again and outsourced Larry Craig puppet theater.
#5: No reason to have any doubts wondering whether or not the administration is more concerned with headlines to look good on Fox News Channel [Ding!] rather than fighting terrorists. Administration "compromised a back door channel into islamic websites to look like a bunch of hitmen on the Fox News Channel." Blah blah blah about SITE and Konspiracy Theory about obscene concern for good PR by Mister Bush. Fox News, Fox News, Fox! Fox! Fox! [Ding!] [Ding!] [Ding!] [Ding!] [Ding!]. Olbersturmfuhrer and his lackeys use excellent editing and nice manipulation to make Ms. Perrino like a liar at worst and clueless at best. Nice. Clips of Ms. Perrino. Too bad she's not a "personal friend" like Tony Snow. Welcome Dana Milbank, sans fancy habiliments. He sympathizes with Hauptmann over the tragic loss of the Yankees. Keithy is grateful. Another example of "incompetence" opines Milby. Frances Townsend snarky attack: she appears on television everywhere all the time. Karl Rove comparison vis a vis lying. Yep. White House trying to pin something bad on the intelligence community - Fat Ass. George Tenet took the fall for the administration - Milby. Always looking for a great thanks and great pleasuring, Milbank dug deep for a konspiracy theory that every OlbyLoon would eat up - including the man himself. Milbank postulated that perhaps Fox News received the Usama Bin Laden tape because Olbermann had "just beaten" O'Reilly "in the ratings." Ratings, you say? You mean those Live + Same Day DVR numbers that no one uses? Or was that the time that Olbermann "beat" O'Reilly in the key, coveted all important 15 minute window at the beginning of the show? Which time was that? White House + Fox + O'Reilly = Konspiracy Theorist's dream.
Bring in someone who actually knows what they are talking about to pick up the slack for Monkey Mann. Evan Kohlmann, who was a frequent guest on Fox News until being picked up by MSNBC, rides in to fill in all the gaps in House Boy's knowledge regarding, well, anything. More attempts at trying to pin the closure of Islamic websites on the Bush administration and Fox News. Clearly, to Adam's Apple, Bush and his minions are out to destroy any ability to collect intelligence and my inference from that is that they want to bring about a terrorist attack. Jabba finishes the interview with a cute question about whether or not this really proves once and for all that the administration is really interested in headlines rather than fighting terror. Kohlmann doesn't take the bait, he just says we should be more careful when it comes to matters like this. Great Thanks.
#4: A "milestone" in the 2008 campaign, Rudy Giuliani "roundly" booed at the Yankees game. Giuliani was more concerned with Yankees games spending more time there than Ground Zero - Keith. He was "briefly yet lustily" booed. St. Rudy project as usual. Fred Thompson got three hours of softball questions on "Fox News" [Ding!]. Oralmann makes a pathetic attempt at making Fmr. Sen. Fred Thompson look bad by cherry picking a clip of him saying a number of things are "on the line" but that the "economy is fine." He said the economy is fine but subsequently said that it's on the line. Of course, no context is given on OlbyPlanet to any Republican. They are always dumb. Need further proof? Quote Olby's secret crush Pres. Nixon calling Fred Thompson "dumb" and a finishing touch by der Fuhrer that Sen. Thompson was a "toadie." Of course, what makes him a secret crush is that his out in the open crush, disbarred convicted felon John Dean was Nixon's White House Counsel. Guess where and when the felon got all of his notoriety and knowledge? Nixon White House! How has he put that to use? Bashing "neo cons" and other Republicans! Bring in fair and balanced Chris Matthews. HA! Chris Matthews stunningly smacks down Oralmann. Seriously. SERIOUSLY.
By the way, you gotta be careful about Rudy. You know, Richard Nixon was at the opening of Candlestick in '61 in San Francisco and he watched this horatious booing of the Governor, Pat Brown. I mean, people just destroyed him that night. And ah, Nixon said, "God I can beat that guy," and he ran against him and got killed. So ah, I don't know.
Oralmann doesn't have anything to say to that except that New Yorkers may not like him because "We know what you are doing with 9/11 and we find it a little obscene that you are riding an entire campaign based on this."
Chris Matthews, shocked, replies, "You mean New Yorkers not liking someone for overdoing something?" HA! HA! HA! HA! Matthews goes on to explain what New York epitomizes over doing things. Olby, getting peeved, moves on quickly to Rudy's claim that 23 plots have been foiled. He notes that NOT EVEN THE WHITE HOUSE has claimed 23 plots. Matthews continues to beat on Olby until he, Olby, sputters and stalls. Great thanks (surprising).
Sen. Obama's wife in a car accident.
Oddball: Keith makes a bad Australian accent; kangaroo on a race track. People dressed up as animals. Another bad accent. English - uh, I think.
Best Person in the World: Fred Barnes, Giant Eagle Cashier, Jamie Howard
#3: Threat turned out to be "crap" against the Capitol. Beat up on the updates to the FISA law. Bring in Republican that disagrees with Bush, thus worthy of being on OlbyPlanet - Bruce Fein. Mr. Fein speaks for a while with Hauptmann remaining surprisingly quiet. Nothing really of note here. On to the next story.
#2: Princess Diana inquest.
Keeping Tabs: Der Fuhrer, given his love of Nazism, can't pronounce the German word "Valkyrie" correctly and instead says "Val-keere-ee." Eventually he gets it right after the producer probably corrects him. Nick Nolte has a child.
#1: Larry Craig puppet theater.
In the Media Matters minute, here is a CLEAR example of Oralmann and his lackey's getting material from Blue Blogs. In a story ran in The Hill on October 6th, not until the October 9th show of Der Sturmer did a WPITW nomination appear for Robert Novak as the story was regurgitated on the Talking Points Memo, a website for lefties. Enough said. Runner up, "Comedian" Rush Limbaugh vis a vis ThinkProgress. Shocking. Winner? You guessed it, "Bill-O!" Thanks, DailyKos!, you're always there when I need you. Cue head shakes, calm voice, quiet declaration.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's came in at a stellar #13,538 on amazon.com, but "Culture Warrior" is #710. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome still can't find a rank at Barnes and Noble; O'Reilly's book is #745 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. Monday's Hour of Spin put Olby back in fourth place, but Herr Olbermann was not in and instead Robin took over. Source. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 1 [LOW]
