"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
It's a new year, and that means the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann starts fresh giving us material for our Top Ten Olbermann Lies of 2008. Our work begins now--it's the opening spiel: Iowa! Huckabee goes on Leno. Campaign ads. "Republicans" attack each other (but Dems don't?). Oh goodie, the "torture tapes" again. Plus Hollywood scandals. All that and more on hump day at Olbermann Watch.
#5: Kucinich asks supporters to back Obama as their second choice. Dems make direct appeals to voters with ads (clips from Hillary, Obama, Edwards). Slippery Shuster recapped caucus rules, to which Herr Olbermann said "that begs the obvious question...". Um, no it doesn't. It raises the question, not begs it. Keith the ace wordsmith dazzles the ignorant once again. Bathman tried to dismiss the recent poll that shows Obama surging ahead of Hillary, and Robin sort of played along but noting how accurate the Des Moines paper has been in the past. Oddly, Slippery got Thanksed, but not Great Thanksed.
Next, lefty Alter was there to critique the wisdom of Iowa having caucuses. It's "pretty troublesome" he noted, apparently preferring that campaigns all be conducted with national tv ads and appeals to big cities. More deep thoughts from lefty: nobody knows who will win, "a win is a win"... these are the dazzling insights that make him a regular on The Hour of Spin. He was not Great Thanksed but he was Pleasured.
#4: After the reverential treatment of the kindly Dems, with no talk of any attacks on each other, no gaffes, no insults, the tone changed dramatically. Now it was vicious infighting, moronic candidates, and embarrassing gaffes. You guessed it, KO was now talking about Repubs! Which one will "lose less badly"? A supposed Huckabee gaffe about the writers' strike (Blue Blog Source: Oliver Willis), plus KO dredged up again Huck not having read about the latest NIE. That story is--what--weeks old? Edward R Olbermann went on at length with GOP-hater Robinson about all this--keep that in mind when we get to the non-barking dogs. The pair went on to chortle over McCain attacks on Romney, Romney attacks on McCain and Huckabee, yada yada. It's a Republican "demolition derby", sniggered Fat Ass. Eugene was Pleasured.
After another Pulitzer-worthy chapter of "oddball" Olby inflicted #3 on his viewers: it's WaterTortureBoardingTapingGate, or whatever the hell he's calling it now. It's why the election is so important, ruled Judge Oralmann. Oh goodie, it's Olby & the Perfessor again. How long until he finds a federal crime? Start the clock. Wow, that was fast: just three seconds and The Perfessor found six of them! It's worse than watergate! It's a whole range of crimes! It leads directly to the President! We need a special prosecutor! Um, did The Perfessor forget that the Congress repealed that law after a special counsel got a little too close to Bill Jefferson Clinton? No matter, The Perfessor was Great Thanksed.
#2: Paul McCartney, Heather Mills, Eddie Murphy, Gavin Newsome, and a book plug. #1: Paris Hilton and other celebrity trivia with the creepy Michael Musto--journalism at its finest.
In the Media Matters Minute, we got your "right wing extremist" (Wendy Wright), a reference to Fixed News [Ding!], and we got your "really dumb" Bill Kristol of Fox Noise [Ding!] (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters). Yup, Olby's comments tracked exactly with the ones at the Soros site--straight from Brock's webpage to Oralmann's teleprompter.
Dogs That Did Not Bark: It was a fun night for Mr Merkle, as he cackled about the stupid Republicans and their humiliating gaffes. How ignorant they are! What dopes would vote for them? But as we have noted before, they name streets after guys like Keith Olbermann: "One Way". With all his ridiculing of the foreign policy cred of the GOPers, for some reason he didn't see fit to report this. Aww, it's just too warm and snuggly in Hillary's coat pocket for a slovenly political hack like Krazy Keith.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name languishes at #95,323 on amazon, while "Culture Warrior" is #17,212. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble has the OlbyTome at #38,056; O'Reilly's book is #1,977 there. In the battle of the paperbacks: Amazon lists Culture Warrior at #2,401, while Oralmann's book is a mighty #2,678. On Thursday, the infamous deplorable Keith Olbermann interrupted his vacation for a very special edition of The Hour of Spin. Unfortunately, his efforts only netted him a poor third place finish behind The O'Laura Factor and even CNN's hit-and-run killer, both in total viewers and in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo".
