"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Grab your Merlot: the opening spiel is here! WaterboardingGate! It's torture, because Keith says so! Attack on Kit Bond (R)! GOP Debate! The Daily Britney! Barney's Christmas movie! It's liveblogging night at Olbermann Watch.
#5: New catch-phrase: the "fog of Bush" [Ding!]. Oh, another one: "Presidency of loopholes" [Ding!]. Obstruction of Justice, ruled Judge Oralmann. He desperately wanted to find this issue "resonating" on the campaign trail, but The Wolffe Man was positively lukewarm about how hot an issue it really is. Monkeymann talked waterboarding being "damaging" to the administration, as if getting verified information from a terrorist that ended up saving lives would be a bad thing. Great thanks.
Then it was on to Oralmann's favorite felon. Yes, in an unbilled cameo, John Dean, to talk about "broken government"! [Ding!] Only 15 seconds to the first "Nixon" reference. [Ding!] Another surreal moment as Edward R Olbermann asks for a legal opinion from a disbarred lawyer. Olby wants a "select committee" and a "special prosecutor". There's a shocker. Dean blames "right-wing" [Ding!] radio and "Fox News" [Ding!] for letting this all go on. No, we're not making this up! The air is thin on OlbyPlanet. Great thanks.
Plug for Dan Abrams and "Bush League Justice". Hmm, and it's Fox that's the partisan news channel? Whatever.
#4: Fat Ass says waterboarding is "forcible drowning", but without the dying part. How ignorant is this doofus anyhow? After his own legal analysis of waterboarding and a little elbow at Joe Scarborough, it was time to bring in a real expert on interrogation and legal niceties: Rachel Maddow, comedian on Err America! After all it's been all of one day since Err America had someone on The Hour of Spin, and all of one hour since Maddow was on A-Mess-NBC. Olby references "right wing"! [Ding!] Maddow frets over whether US troops abroad might be waterboarded. One would think most of the troops would welcome that over, say, being beheaded. Great thanks.
#3: The Iowa GOP debate, as Olby focused on making fun of Alan Keyes. Of course the real focus came next: Project Rudy. Lefty Robinson was there to help Oralmann serve Hillary Clinton's purpose: damage the front-runner. But it wasn't limited to that. As we predicted, every comment from Olby and his sock puppet was a slam on one of the GOP candidates. What are the chances that ratio will be similar after tomorrow's Dem debate? Slim and none. And Slim just left town.
#2: Barney the dog. It's that time of year, you know snowflakes, mistletoe, and Keith Olbermann showing that Christmas spirit by even attacking the Barney video. Oralmann found a way to bring up Karl Rove [Ding!] and a half-dozen other irrelevancies. No, we didn't make that up either. #1: The Daily Britney with the ever-creepy Michael Musto, with such gems as "Britney had a penis".
In the Media Matters Minute, Fred Thompson-R (Blue Blog Source: Think Propaganda), Mitt Romney-R (Blue Blog Source: Think Propaganda), and of course, Bill O'Reilly (Blue Blog Source: MatthewGood). O'Reilly? How can that be? Remember this?
Amazing OlbyFact: how closely the Blue Blog Sources, the arguments they raise, and examples they give, track with exactly the arguments and examples used by Oralmann tonight.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name languishes at #23,198 on amazon, while "Culture Warrior" is #4,487. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble has the OlbyTome at #29,432; O'Reilly's book is #430 there. In the battle of the paperbacks: Amazon lists Culture Warrior at #354, while Oralmann's book is a mighty #1,839. Guffaw! Liveblogging over.
