"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Opening spiel: Good news from Iraq? Don't believe it. "Conservatives without conscience" cause a "nightmare". Larry Craig yet again; Mitt "threw him under the bus" [Ding!], yada yada yada. It's blue Monday at Olbermann Watch and the bells are ringing.
#5: "Mister" Bush doesn't want a victory in Iraq because it would mean he would have to leave. If Al Qaeda is 60-70% diminished, said Olby, well so what? That means they're still 30-40% not diminished. Dana Milbank, minus multicolored mufti, said any improvement in Iraq undermines the success of the surge. No, don't try to figure it out, it's OlbyLogic. It must be, because Olby said it puts the White House in a corner! By the way, up is down, and dry is wet. Great thanks.
Time for HuffPo's Jon Soltz to take OlbySpin into hyperdrive. These generals shouldn't be saying stuff like this because wascally Wepublicans will exploit it for political gain. Oh, and "Where you sit is where you stand". O.K. Olbermoronn said the casualty numbers may be down "but they haven't hit zero". Geez, that's even true of members of the US Senate, Fat Ass. The far-left Soltz was so enamored of OlbySpin that he told Oralmann: "I'm going to start using your stuff!" You know he got Great Thanksed.
After a reference to the "right-wing lunatic fringe" [Ding!] came #4: The Big Bad Pentagon in "George Bush's America". They're injecting people with "dangerous" drugs (Blue Blog Source: Daily Kos, Keith's favorite charity). This is an allegation in a lawsuit, but was reported as fact by Edward R Olbermahn. Natch. Time for Olby and The Perfessor. More Pentagon "spying". Keyword: "abuse" (used by The Perfessor five times in one form or other). Great thanks.
After yet another "lunatic fringe" [Ding!] we got #3: The "right wing" [Ding!] wants Graeme Frost to "die" (Blue Blog Source: Think Progress). It's the fury of the "right wing" [Ding!]. Rush Limbaugh "spreading lies", Mitch McConnell "reportedly" (weasel word) doing so too. The "lunatic fringe" [Ding!]. No mention of the Frosts' three automobiles. Much talk about what if they didn't have the S-CHIP program, which is odd, because neither Democrats nor Republicans have proposed doing away with it (straw man). Great phony-sympathy-style Thanks.
#2: Larry Craig (regurgitated video from the network mothership) with another "thrown under the bus" [Ding!], which Herr Olbermahn apparently thinks is a phrase original with him (no, it just seems that way after hearing it for the 89th time)...plus O.J. #1: Rudy and space aliens ("they're meaner than Republicans"). "Lunatic fringe" [Ding!].
In the Media Matters Minute, Olby attacked Michelle Malkin (Blue Blog Source: Think Progress), Lindsay Graham (R) (Blue Blog Source: Crooks & Liars) throwing Gen Sanchez "under the bus" [Ding!], and worst: Roger Ailes (Blue Blog Source: Oliver Willis of Hillary Clinton's Media Matters).
Dogs That Did Not Bark: Well, we could ask why Edward R Olbermann did an interview with Hillary Clinton and never asked one question about the Hsu financial scandal. But then, he would have to report on it, wouldn't he? Oh well, then how about Gen Sanchez? Mr Merkle trumpeted the General's criticism of the Iraq War as headline news from a genuine expert (i.e. the man in charge when the country was de-Bathified, and during the Abu Ghraib scandal). But Herr Olberoronn conveniently left out half of what Sanchez said. Could that be because it boomerangs right back on OlbyPlanet? We report, you decide.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name sunk to #33,079 on amazon, while "Culture Warrior" stands at #1,198. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble lists the OlbyTome at #43,276; O'Reilly's book is #2,368 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. On Friday, "Chicken and Waffles" Olbermann just barely beat a hit-and-run driver on CNN for second place, but still 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".
