"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
The ferocious Keith Monkey Man Olbermann asks, "Can you spy on me now?" The government wants all of your information; Howie in! Convicted felon rehab! "Swiftboating" [Ding!] of Graeme Frost and Sen. McConnel calling out Paul Krugman. "Bloggers did the investigating." Paul Krugman to opine on the matters. More Republican bashing YouTube style. More Britney Spears coverage. Yay.
#5: "Uncle Sam is Watching You." Verizon is being an evil Bush crony but they may be the "good guys." Democrats are considering blanket immunity for these telecom companies - gasp! Con. John Conyers (D-Land of Oz) mention. Howie Fineman is brought in to play liberal partner in crime. Congress doesn't know the extent of the program. White House wants immunity to protect its "domestic spying." Administration is perfectly willing to "diss the congress" says Howie. "Has not the smell test on retroactive immunity failed?" asks Olby. Congress Markey who chairs a committee is going to have more hearings. More hearings? Geeze, I thought congress had too few. We definitely need more. "Does this underscore - scream the value of congressional oversight?" Olbermann might as well cry like a baby.
Nixon White House Counsel, Convicted Felon and Disbarred lawyer John Dean. Countdown star. I bet you can imagine where this is going. White House is trying to "overpower" the congress. "Lots of evidence of violations of the law." Right. Constitutional Scholar Keith Olbermann tries to talk about ex post facto laws but Dean, ever the scholar himself, smacks Olby down as he is wrong as usual. "Nightmare scenario" that even George Bush could be picked up in one these raids. Surprisingly uneventful. Great Thanks.
#4: SCHIP program continues. More about the "swiftboating" [Ding!] of Graeme Frost. The "right wing could not get lower." Paul Krugman, author of "Conscience of a Liberal." Does anyone detect the irony here? Krugman ruminates about the "fake" scandals in the 90s, like that "phony" campaign finance scandal and the Buddhist monks. Krugman thanks Olby by saying, "You, I and the progressive blogosphere were able to mount a quick counterattack." Does Keith want to be associated with liars and smear artists at DailyKos and their compatriots? Is this a tacit admission vis a vis silence by Der Fuhrer of being a "progressive?" Hmmm. "Who do people who proclaim themselves pro-life...they literally want them, in Graeme Frost's case, call for public hanging...is there any straight line in there?" "They hate the idea we are our brother's keepers," says Krugman. Krugman says that Democrats put a "human face" on "socialized medicine."
"It drives them carry." "What is the impact on the four million kids who won't be covered?" asks Herr Olbermann. Gee, that's not a loaded question. What a pleasure.
Oddball: Mini pigs. Drag race.
#3: Republican bashing as usual. Chief of Staff for a Republican activist gets "YouTubed" by a moveon.org hack. Chief of Staff uses famous "Right Wing Slur" which is "anti-American (the slur is the aforementioned)." Rachel Maddow for the usual spin cycle. "Far-right" again [Ding!] Blabber about provoking and annoying your political opponents. Macaca again [Ding!] Great thanks. Yawn.
#2: Keeping Tabs: Ellen dog scandal. Kate and Prince William.
In the Media Matters minute, Bill-O getting the bronze for another media matters smear, MediaMatters. Silver: "Comedian" Rush Limbaugh for "threatening a journalist" on the Huff and Puff HuffPuff. Gold: More Huff and Puff material. Meh.
#1: Britney Spears. Woman bashing. Creepy Michael Musto talks about anal bleaching. Britney wants to show her "hoo-ha" to the world. Usual.
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 had Olby in second. Congrats. Source. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 1 [LOW]
