"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Krazy Keith droned through a rather limp spiel. President plays the "9/11 card" to get Judge Mukasey through. Senator Kennedy bails and Senator Specter says "the nomination is in trouble. The "State Department in Crisis!" We've never that one before on OlbyPlanet! "Drafting Diplomats." The Rumsfeld memos and the ever important Britney Spears! Barry Bonds exclusive interview, conducting by Jim Gray - not Keith Olbermann - zing!
#5: "Vote Republican or Die" was the message of 2006 from the President. He has "rolled out the 2007 sequel." He's trying to "strong arm Congress" (gee, that has never happened). He spoke to the Heritage Foundation where "a lot of the 24% of people who still approve of the President were." Several clips of the President with non-witty remarks from Olby. The President dares to think that the Democrats blocking the latest nomination for Attorney General would be a bad precedent (no mention that Mukasey was strongly recommended by Sen. Chuckie Schumer). Keith 'Fat Ass' Olbermann calls the VP the "Dark Lord." Har! Bring in the usual leftist Alter to say nothing of value or something outside of standard DNC talking points. White House thinks "follow the constitution and you will die." Alter thinks that the speech wasn't red meat, but raw meat. Whoah! He's just worried about his legacy and Mukasey, supposedly. Alter thinks that the President has no other accomplishments other than keeping the country safe. Even that faint praise was too much for Herr Olbermann to stomach saying that the President only kept the country safe "after 9/11 and the anthrax terror attacks." Knock me over with a feather. Water boarding is torture on OlbyPlanet, even though we've used it on our own soldiers for training and there are only three suspected times that it has been used. That and the Senate, under Republican control, voted 53-47 not to classify waterboarding as torture. No example of torture is actually presented....like cutting off fingers....heads....pulling out finger nails.....electrocution. We're just like the gulags says Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)! Great thanks.
#4: Americans are being "drafted" for the first time since Vietnam, although these aren't soldiers. They are diplomats who refuse to go to Iraq, even though, you know, you work for an agency and sort of do what your job entails? They could just quit. Couple of clips of foreign service staff bashing the administration. Keith has friends in the State Department, supposedly, who talk off the record to him. First time we've sent diplomats to a war zone since Vietnam, which was a war, just like now. Imagine that. Ms. Leverett says that if you disagree with policy, you will "pay for it." Ms. Leverett has an extensive history of disagreeing with the Bush administration in conjunction with her husband.
Oddball: Someone is immune to electricity, funny Halloween scare on a local news channel
Best Persons in the World: Some bad costume choice, someone has a bad day, Aw Cheng Fatt offered a cop $15 to avoid being busted for drunk driving, but he wasn't drunk
#3: "Snowflake memos" of Donald Rumsfeld. Olbersturmfuhrer does the third story standing up! So cool! He looks a bit thick, and the suit does not look right. He also looks stiff. Bunch of quotes without context. Yawn.
#2: Keeping tabs (guess it was hard to get guests tonight): Britney Spears says "you know" a lot. Heather Mills breaks down on TV.
#1: Barry Bonds interview tape. But Olby does get to interview the guy who interviewed Bonds! Wow!
In the Media Matters minute, the "lunatic fringe" Ding! website RedState even though he was really talking about someone's blog entry. While they did say Keith was on, and he wasn't, at least try to get the person who wrote the entry's name. Monkeymann and his lackeys awarded Glenn Beck the silver via the usual MediaMatters smear machine. Roger Ailes wins gold (Fox, naturally!).
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's went through the roof to #10,448 at amazon.com, but "Culture Warrior" is #2,147. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome sadly remains unranked; O'Reilly's book is #1,943 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. Wednesday's Hour of Spin managed a second place finish in total viewers and in that beloved demo. Although O'Reilly beat House Boy Olbermann in the overall and the demo 3:1.
