"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Keith Oralmann barked the opening spiel: It's the "fear card": money "the fund the deaths of Americans", the Veep "comes out of his cave", Valerie Plame (again), Gonzales (again), GOP debate, wildfires, and more. It's blue Monday at Olbermann Watch.
#5: The "third world war" [Ding!]. Cheney the "dark Lord" "rattling sabres". Will Democrats "rubber stamp" funding request? The Wolffe Man simpered that they're throwing in the towel. Olby referenced the "terrorpublicans" (that's so stupid it gets a [Ding!]). Of course he lifted it from elsewhere (Blue Blog Source: Daily Kos). Valerie Plame's identity was revealed by "aides to both Bush and Cheney". Um, her name was revealed by an aide to Colin Powell. That part of the story is censored on OlbyPlanet. Regurgitated video of VP, plus plug for her on The Hour of Spin tomorrow. Gonzo again; a fired US Attorney thinks AG could be prosecuted. News. Other fired US Attorneys disagree. Not news.
#4: GOP Presidential politics. The "far right [Ding!] of the far rights [Ding!]". OlbyLogic analyzes the debate: criticizing Hillary is bad politics because it helps her. Olbermann's Brain chortled, sniggered, and cackled. Great thanks.
#3: California fires via taped report; Keithy Great Thanksed the tape. #2: Ellen and her dog, Kid Rock . #1: The politics of Harry Potter. We would have preferred the psychology of an allegedly grown man who obsesses over baseball cards and kiddie books. Not that it mattered much, as the highly intellectual discussion was cut off prematurely when somebody at MSLSD mercifully pulled the plug, leaving the last minute or two with nothing but color bars and an audio test tone.
In the Media Matters Minute it was another trifecta: every victim was an (R) or a Fox employee. Glenn Beck (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters), National Review (Blue Blog Source: Think Progress), and Bill O'Reilly. Hold it, stop the tivo! What's this? Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly?!? Hey did we call it, or what?!!
Oh, Fat Ass also crowed about "beating" O'Reilly (actually an O'Reilly rerun) in a phony inflated demo that MSNBC itself doesn't even use. Merkle lost in the true numbers. We'll leave it up to you whether to count this as Another Olbermann Lie.
Dogs That Did Not Bark:
Michael Murphy. Of course if he had put underwear on someone's head or gunned down a few civilians Edward R Olbermoronn would have flogged the story for days. Instead, nothing. Disgraceful.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name is #10,478 on amazon, while "Culture Warrior" is #1,581. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble has the OlbyTome sinking to #55,522; O'Reilly's book is #2,404 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. On Friday the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann bordered on pulling off a coup. Yeah he lost horrendously to Mr Bill, almost, nearly, not quite finishing first in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo". Hold it, O'Reilly wasn't on Friday; they reran an old show. Oh well. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 5 [ELEVATED]
