Host: Keith Olbermann
Something Olbermann This Way Comes: The President wants a "rubber stamp" [Ding!], he's going to (gasp!) issue administrative orders, Mukasey nomination is in "crisis" [Ding!], "Saint Rudy" [Ding!], Roger Ailes [Ding!], and more. It's hump day at Olbermann Watch.
#5: "Mister" Bush is destroying democracy because he is going to issue administrative orders. Horrors! No President has ever done that before! "Mister" Bush "bashes" Democrats. "Mister" Bush is running the country "by executive fiat". Olby suggested the Congress should stop all funding to the Executive Branch. The Pundit for All Occasions was again a bland sycophant. Great thanks.
Karen Hughes resigned. Reference to Blackwater [Ding!]. "Bush's Brain" [Ding!] Guy brought in to advance the notion that Ms Hughes is delusional and a butt-kissing toady and "Mister" Bush wants to be a dictator. Great thanks. Teaser for upcoming political segment: Joe Biden in the debate takes a shot at Giuliani. (On OlbyPlanet, that is the big news from the event.)
#4: The AG nomination fight. Clips from anti-AG Democrats: Leahy (D), Durbin (D). Clips from pro-AG Republicans: don't be silly, this is The Hour of Spin; you know Olby ain't gonna be fair or balanced. Fein was again miseadingly introduced as a "former Reagan" administration member, but we at Olbermann Watch know of his sharp turn to the left. If he hadn't taken that fork in the road, he never would have arrived at OlbyPlanet. "Blank check" [Ding!]. Great thanks.
#3: Debate politics. Yep, the Big News out of the debate is: Biden attacked Giuliani! Oh, and Giuliani is a plagiarist. Debate clip: Biden attacks Giuliani, Giuliani responds. Hillary tried to "split the middle" on illegal alien drivers licenses; clips of that exchange. As Olbermann's Brain chuckled onto the set, Merkle started off by asking several questions about... Hillary? Nope. Biden vs Giuliani! Now we know Keithy's plan to spin Hillary's embarrassing performance--change the subject and launch Project Rudy yet again! Then it was on to Obama, Edwards, and finally the licenses issue. When Oralmann started out "It sounds to me, and maybe I'm being naive..." you know The Spin Starts Here. Oh, she was looking for an ad-hoc solution to an unsolved problem, she was "unfairly hounded", yada yada yada. Will Fat Ass ever get his head out of that Clinton orafice? (Hint: No.) Great thanks.
After a "Fixed News" [Ding!] reference: #2: Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan. #1: Political comedy with Jim Morris with lots of fake laughter from Dan Olbermahn. In the Media Matters Minute, Herr Olbermahn went after John Gibson of "Fox Noise" [Ding!] (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters) and Mort Kondracke of "Fixed News" [Ding!] (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters). Yep, another night of straight from the Media Matters website to Dan Olbermahn's teleprompter.
Dogs That Did Not Bark: Good old Bathtub Boy. Whenever there's a terror-related arrest, he's right there to ridicule it. Like he did with the Fort Dix plotters, the "morons", according to Olby. The "supposed plot" doesn't "hold together that well", he ruled. It was just a "dubious fantasy". But what do you know? The first of the Fort Dix Six today entered a plea of guilty. And all of sudden Edward R Olbermoronn has nothing to say on the subject. Not a word. This is why we call it The Hour of Spin.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name is #12,433 on amazon, while "Culture Warrior" is #6,552. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble has the OlbyTome dropped to #87,151; O'Reilly's book is #2,428 there,--and it's now out in paperback! Amazon lists the paperback at #372, while the paperback edition of Oralmann's book is, well, only a gleaming wish in Krazy Keith's eye. On Tuesday the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann eked out a second place finish again, but still lost overwhelmingly to the eeevil O'Reilly, both in total viewers and in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo".
