"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
We're liveblogging The Hour of Spin and the final opening spiel of the week: The Dem's love in "is over". Obama endorsement Obamarama! "Suspicion" about Republicans. It's casual Friday at Olbermann Watch.
[Heh. O'Reilly's playing clips of the vets who think O'Reilly said there are no homeless vets. None of them heard him say it! Big announcement re vets coming next Thursday from Mr Bill. We have an idea what it is and it will be fun to see how Oralmann can possibly spin this one. But back to the infamous, deplorable one...]
#5: Obama endorsements multiply. Alma Rangel and a big CA union, plus moveon.org. But John Edwards is coming alive and he could come in second. Oh wait, that was last week. The Pundit for All Occasions bloviated that Rangel is covering his bets. Olby used a big word: "magnamimity". Sorry, we meant to say he mangled a big word. No great thanks.
Clip of Hillary trying to explain away a vote against diplomacy before going to war in Iraq. Oops, Olbamamann fact-checked Hillary's excuse. Did he think this up on his own? Of course not! (Blue Blog Source: HuffPo). Fat Ass calls Hill's explanation "revisionist history". The Wolffe Man simpered. No great thanks.
After a plug for O'Reilly Attack #412 came #4: Obama + Clinton = Dream Ticket. Keithy was so excited over the possibility of a Unity ticket that he stained his pants. Olbermann's Brain sniggered. No great thanks.
After another plug for O'Reilly Attack #412 (where Olby lied about what O'Reilly said) came #3: Politics on the 9/11 Commission--yes, the same 9/11 Commission that Bear has been holding up as God-like and beyond criticism for years. The actual report was regurgitated video from NBC. Turns out the Dem co-chair of the Commission pooh-poohed all the "suggestions" and "suspicions". Oh wait, Countdown didn't bother to show the (D) after Lee Hamilton's name in that soundbite. Purely an oversight. Pete Williams was Great Thanksed.
Plug: "Comedian Rush Limbaugh leads a stampede of idiots" who misquoted Bill Clinton. We'll see about that.
#2: Britney, Super Bowl. #1: Celebrities at the debate.
In the Media Matters Minute, Rush Limbaugh was attacked for "deliberately taking a quote out of context" (Blue Blog Source: Talking Points Memo). Note from following the link that Oralmann deliberately lied: it wasn't Rush who took the quote out of context; it wasn't Rush who lead the parade. It was ABC News. But Fat Ass would rather smear Limbaugh so he just lied and claimed that Rush doctored the quote even though Olby knows damn well it was ABC's mistake. Worst was of course Mr Bill in attack #412 (Blue Blog Source: a near-verbatim lift from Hillary Clinton's Media Matters).
If it's Friday, it's our weekly assessment of Krazy Keith's masculinity. Even though this was only a four day week, Monkeymann attacked Fox and other broadcasters 29 times. Olby's source (Hillary Clinton's Media Matters) criticized (MS)NBC 20 times, but Keithy protected his corporate masters with zero criticisms. That makes this week's Olbermann Manhood Quotient: -98 [pansy limp]. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 1 [LOW]
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 635th day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will be indicted".
