"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
He's back: tanned (even if it's from a can), rested, and ready. So went the opening spiel: Obama endorsed! Hillary wants to change primary rules! Bill Jefferson Clinton invoked Jesse Jackson! SotU! Will Rudy drop out? Stock Market is Down! (Alert: Olbermann Lie, it's way up since 2001.) It's blue Monday at Olbermann Watch, the blog so powerful and influential it is read by Keith Olbermann himself.
#5: Obama as the new JFK. Clips of Ted Kennedy and Barack. Toni Morrison endorses Obama. Clip of Hillary. Olbermann's Brain chortled and insisted BJ Clinton had no racial intent when comparing Obama to Jesse Jackson. And chickens have lips. Next up: Lefty Alter on how the Clinton's managed to "lose the Kennedys". Olby wondered if they have to put BJ Clinton "in the shed". Lefty said he'll "tone it down". Oralmann touched on a smear email about Obama, neatly attributing it to "government workers", the "military", "right-wing web sites", and, of course, Republicans. Left completely out of his report were the Hillary Clinton staffers who were fired for spreading it. After all, this is OlbyPlanet.
#4: Florida. Hillary trying to change the rules and grab their delegates. Chuck Todd detailed the machinations over the Sunshine State. Olby suggested this is "the ends justifies the means", and Kos Kidz all over the Olbersphere swooned. Is Rudy looking to bow out? It's his "swan song", said Toddy. So far not a "great thanks" to be heard.
After a reference to Orwell [Ding!] and a "right wing lunatic fringer" [Ding!], #3: the "true" State of the Union. FISA! Terror attacks? Up! (Unmentioned: none in the US). Terrorists? Roaming free! (Huh? We thought all this terrorism business was just scare stuff from those terrorists Republicans.) The correspondent with the tonsorially-enhanced hair did a "they say, but they say" analysis to distance himself from Monkeymann's partisan spew. No great thanks.
After a Rove reference [Ding!]#2: The Media Matters Minute. Choate school and Karl Rove [Ding!] (Blue Blog Source: Huff 'n' Puff), Glenn Beck (Blue Blog Source: nearly verbatim lift from Hillary Clinton's Media Matters ), and "worst" Mary Katherine Ham (Blue Blog Source: Crooks & Liars). Ooh, a Fox Noise [Ding!] too.
#1: Scintillating repartee in tonight's Democrats interviewing Democrats segment (Olby with The Drooler). The two of them batted their shared talking points back and forth: Bush wants to "tie the hands of the next President". Iraq is no success. Yikes! No sane person can take any more of this. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 1 [LOW]
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 630th day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will be indicted".
