"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
It's a busy night for a Tuesday. "Water boarding-Gate", the finger is directly pointed at the man who "led the team" to "torture Abu Zubaybah" (actually, he led the team to find him and never actually witnessed any water boarding himself AND is a "proud Democrat" - no mention on OlbyPlanet) points the finger at the White House. CIA got clearance from their lawyers to destroy the tapes. The CIA director still "disquietingly wearing his military uniform" (the guy is....after all....in the military, no?) testifies. Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) might support a special prosecutor. The Attorney General sounds like he "wrote platitudes for lawyers in Hallmark cards" (oooo witty). Cong. Tim Roemer (D-IN). Halliburton scandal. Old Bush "scandals." Oh, and Paris Hilton. Whoopee.
#5: HOLD THE MERLOT! Right within the first fifteen seconds, Keith bungles Abu Zubaydah's name into something like "Abu Zubahdieya." Hm...let me do some calculations here....by my estimate this would make Keith Idiot MSNBC Anchor in Chief. We know how he feels if a Republican fumbles someone's name, they're idiots! Well Mr. Denever is West of the Rockies, this just makes you even dumber. Congratulations! Where were we? Oh yeah, Zubaydah was waterboarded and it was torture according to the former CIA agent. Mr. Bush claims to not have known about the existence of the now destroyed tapes until he was informed a few days ago by that military uniform wearing guy. Clip of Press Secretary Perrino. Herr Olbermann bring in his parrot of the week, Howie. Insight of the evening? It greatly expanded the role of the White House, what Kiriakou said! Hm, I can't decide what would get more attention on OlbyPlanet, a CIA doing whatever it wants without White House involvement (therefore looking 'the other way' or being disinterested) OR a White House that is involved and checks with their lawyers at each step of the interrogation. Lose lose indeed. HOLD THE MERLOT AGAIN! Another Oralmann verbal flub. It's a doozy, clan-de-stein. Not clan-des-tin as it should be. Geeze, what's tonight? You're looking almost as dumb as a - gasp! - Republican. Investigation party. Keith gets himself in a swivet once more about Gen. Hayden still being in uniform, must be to scare people he opines. "It's definitely not required" parrots Finester. Great thanks.
Someone update The List, the latest Democrat, Con. Tom Roemer. Basically he speaks gospel to Hauptmann. Not really worth repeating. We know what he wants to hear and he's going to get it. Oversight, Oversight oversight. Yawn. Typical Fat Ass interview. He doesn't ask anything and Roemer talks endlessly. Considerable thanks.
#4: Michael Kiriakou is now suspect to Keith "Chicken and Waffles" Olbermann. Why? Well, he thinks that the "torture" worked and was worth it. That doesn't pass Sheriff Olbermann's smell test. The admission could be pure "coincidence" even though it came four days after the admission about the tape destruction. Curiously, Jabba plays a clip of Kiriakou where he seems to speak with genuine feeling about his conflicting emotions over water boarding and whether or not it was torture. Furthermore, there was must thought about it at the CIA. How this helps Krazy Keith's Konspiracy Theory is unclear to me. He's had a "surprisingly large number of interviews." Ah, well, we know what side of the fence Mr. Rice falls on. "What does this say about us?" Why would I even bother thinking that someone would say something other than "You're absolutely right" would be allowed on OlbyPlanet. Briefly, across the bottom of the screen flashes the fact that Mr. Rice is a radio show host. I wonder what kind of radio program he hosts. Thanks.
Some new segment called "Bushed!" including "Habeas Corpus-Gate" followed by "Air-Gate" rounded out by "NIE-Gate." The President is lying about Iran, apparently.
#3: Halliburton accused of covering up a gang rape of a former employee. I am not going to say anything about this outside of the fact that if it's true, it's horrifying. People should be prosecuted. I will, however, state my belief why Keith is doing this story. Anything to hammer supposed Halliburton - Bush administration connections to cover up wrong doings.
#2: Paris Hilton and an Oompa Loompa. Laughing Stagehand Laughs. Alex Trebek suffered a heart attack.
#1: Fmr. President Clinton heckled by a robot. Dana Milbank on the robot, Oprah and Hillary's woes.
In the media matters minute, Isaiah Thomas gets the bronze for blaming Knicks fans. Silver: Sean Hannity of Fixed Noise [Ding!] for not telling the audience that Rep. Murtha still believes we can't win in Iraq though the surge is working, from Hillary Clinton's Media Matters. Gold: Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council via Crooks and Liars.
