"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
The Daily Kos's very own Keith Olbermann bellowed the opening spiel: Controversy over Bill Jefferson Clinton! John Edwards stands tall! McCain ahead of Rudy! The Bush movie! Herr Olbermann doctors a Coulter clip! Stand by for fun: it's blue Monday (Say what? Every day is blue on OlbyPlanet!) at Olbermann Watch.
#5: Hillary vs Obama vs Clyburn vs B.J. What? Where's the "Democrats in Disarray" headline? You know, like the "GOP in Disarray" that Olby spouts when Repubs disagree with each other? Oh wait, this is OlbyPlanet. Lefty Alter nattered until the sound went out. Next KO focused on a favorite of his puppet-masters, John Edwards. Fixed News! [Ding!] The Wolffe Man simpered.
#4: St Rudy of 9/11! [Ding!] To cover Republicans, who better than Slippery Shuster? He claimed Rudy "is in serious trouble". That has them popping champagne corks at the Giuliani headquarters, since it came from David "Karl Rove will be indicted" Shuster. Olby ridiculed Johnny Damon for endorsing Rudy and Slippery's inane grin couldn't get any wider, then made fun of Chuck Norris.
After a reference to Orwell [Ding!] came #3: Bush, the Oliver Stone Movie! He was a "frat boy", quoth Olby. It's the Bush's Brain [Ding!] guy! Olby slips in a book self-plug and the Brain guy gushes: "Oh yes, oh yes". It's a "horrible economy" and the film will be a "horror movie". Bear notes Bush's "ignorance" and suggests that what we need is a movie that's "supremely negative about the man". Great thanks.
#2: Footballisms and self-praise from television's great narcissist. #1: Depressing days, Katie Holmes, and celebrity drivel.
In the Media Matters Minute Oralmann first attacked John Bolton (Blue Blog Source: Talking Points Memo), and Dick Morris (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters), plus a Fixed News! [Ding!] Worst was Ann Coulter (Blue Blog Source: Cliff Schechter).
It should be noted that in the opening spiel, and during teases during the show, Edward R Olbermann consistently claimed Coulter said Eisenhower and Nimitz were "Confederate officers", and played this clip to prove his point, cutting it off at a very strategic point:
The majority of military bases in this country are named after Confederate officers: Eisenhower, Nimitz.
Actually, that was a typical Olby distortion. Here is Coulter's actual complete quote before Olby doctored it:
The majority of military bases in this country are named after Confederate officers. Eisenhower, Nimitz: the list of southerners in our military is legion.
After misrepresenting what she said for 80% of the show, Monkeymann finally admitted that, well, no, maybe she didn't really say that. But had pounded it enough times so that he put the idea into the heads of his lemmings, and that's all that counts on OlbyPlanet. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 2 [LOW]
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 623rd day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will be indicted".
