"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
The infamous, deplorable one bellowed the first opening spiel of the week: Super Tuesday Obama vs Hillary: close! Republicans are lemmings! McCain might lose his temper! Keith brags how he predicted the Super Bowl! It's blue Monday at Olbermann Watch, where we again catch Olby in a big, honking example of hypocrisy and utter bias. It's a dog we knew wouldn't bark, and we were right.
#5: As always, Dems get covered first. Obama/Clinton tied. The discredited baseball card collector nattered about endorsements, and The Wolffe Man simpered. But there was no Great Thanks. Endorsements by DeNiro, Stevie Wonder and Maria Shriver. Long clip of her endorsing Obama. Lefty Alter yammered about the "tremendous positive feeling" for the Clintons. Still no great thanks.
After a "lunatic fringe" [Ding!] and another "lunatic fringe" [Ding!] came #4: how the delegates will be counted. The Widest Mouth in All Television spent the segment explaining how it works--for the Dems, of course. He got Great Thanksed, with Olby noting that tonight Slippery was "at Chicago". You mean he was watching a Broadway show?
After an oddball intro with about a half dozen flubs and gaffes and a Fox Noise [Ding!] came #3: "Man on Fan" Olbermann all discombobulated because those damn Repubs are not falling in line for McCain (Blue Blog Source: Salon). Robinson nattered but was not Great Thanksed. #2: nothing. #1: SuperBowl.
In the Media Matters Minute, Herr Olbermahn stuck to his favorite targets: Chris Wallace of Fixed News [Ding!] (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters) for daring to ask her highness about Iraq. Just asking a question makes Wallace a "fraud" and a shill for Republicans, said the "journalist" who blogs for the Daily Kos. Plus Bill Bennett (Blue Blog Source: Huff 'n' Puff)--this was a typical OlbySmear. He attacked Bennett for having contributed money to McCain while defending McCain on the air--but completely omitted the fact that Bennett contributed to multiple candidates including Romney, not just McCain. Um, isn't that slightly relevant, Fat Ass? And "worst" Limbaugh (Blue Blog Source: Salon).
Dogs That Did Not Bark: After months in the tank for Hillary Clinton, Bear recently signed up (figuratively and literally) on the Kos Kavalcade, which means he switched his allegiance to Barack. But he has to watch his step, and keep one foot in the Clinton camp, just to play safe. The purpose of Daily Kos after all is to support and elect Democrats. So it is that we knew this latest dog would be silenced. Backstory: It wasn't that long ago that Edward R Olbermoronn was on his high horse about the "delusional" John McCain. Why? Because in a Q&A somebody referenced Hillary as "the bitch". McCain, for his part, was quick to reply that he respected Senator Clinton, but for Fat Ass that wasn't good enough, as he kicked off several nights of flogging the story by blasting McCain:
One of his supporters uses an offensive term to describe Hillary Clinton and McCain laughs... McCain laughs and calls it an excellent question... He is he trying to defend the indefensible after a voter in South Carolina called Hillary Clinton an extremely disrespectful epithet--an epithet that he through lack of censure appeared to support.... The senator first laughed and then riffed on the foul comment... He respects her but he didn't respect her enough to suggest to the idiot in the restaurant that the term is inappropriate in a public place?... It sounds as if the lessons of Macaca were not really learned.... I mean, if he just said afterwards, it was inappropriate to use that terminology in this context, wouldn't this have gone away?
And on and on. Whew! And that was just from Day One. Now flash forward to today and something startlingly similar: a Clinton supporter calling George Bush a "bastard". Yes, one of Hillary's supporters uses an offensive term to describe George Bush and Hillary smiles. She smiles, and says not one word for or against the comment, not even "I respect the Presidency". So "bastard" is an epithet that she through lack of censure appears to support. She respects the Presidency but not enough to suggest to the idiot that the term is inappropriate in a public place? It sounds as if the lessons of Macaca were not learned. Yada yada yada. Yeah, all of that is what Monkeymann did not say tonight. He spiked the story. Completely. Because it wasn't John McCain, Republican. It was Hillary Clinton, Democrat. And OlbySpin and the rules of the Daily Kos demand that Republicans be attacked and Democrats protected. It's another reason we call it The Hour of Spin, and why Keith Oralmann is a slovenly political hack. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 1 [LOW]
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 638th day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will be indicted".
