"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
It's the Daily Kos's very own Keith Olbermann, back at his anchor desk and ready to kick off another Hour of Spin with the ritual opening spiel: Wisconsin! John Edwards! Dirty Campaigning: how dare they call Obama a plagiarist? Clinton attacks Obama! JFK Conspiracies! It's blue Monday at Olbermann Watch.
#5: Clinton accuses Obama of plagiarism, but Olby sez it ain't so because Barack credited his source once in December. Plus he came up with a bunch of lines Hillary borrowed from somewhere (guess who's campaign sent Bear those talking points?) and tossed in some ridicule of Howard Wolfson. Tight race in Wisconsin, even tighter in Texas. The Pundit for All Occasions nattered but was not Great Thanksed.
Then Olby continued in Obamapologist mode, defending his flip-flop on public financing and attacking Hillary for bringing it up. How dare she make the same criticism ("echoing what a Republican says") as McCain?!? Plus another attack on McCain--like the cherry on a sundae to the infamous, deplorable one. Cillizza yammered and was Great Thanksed.
#4: Al Gore has still not endorsed anyone. And Francisco Franco is still dead. Lefty Alter chattered that the party musn't be split apart but was not Great Thanksed.
After calling Fox News viewers "zombies" Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann finally got to #3: John McCain with the Bush's Brain [Ding!] guy! Bush has "stink" on him. It's "irresponsible" not to raise taxes. Bush's Brain! [Ding!]
#2: Nicole Kidman, Andy Pettitte. #1: JFK assasination theories.
In the Media Matters Minute, Edward R Olbermann attacked Glenn Beck (Blue Blog Source: Crooks & Liars), the "lunatic right-wing" Heritage Foundation (Blue Blog Source: Salon), and worst was "Mister" Bush (Blue Blog Source: Carpetbagger Report) and his "calumny" and "fear tactics". What's next for Olbermann? Get out a Bush doll and smash it to bits on his desk?
Dogs That Did Not Bark: Keith Oralmann will only go so far. With the Obama "plagiarism" scandal a lead story all over the channels, he couldn't very well ignore it (it was more politic to just minimize it). But in giving it pro forma attention, that gave Bear cover to neatly avoid other things that might prove a bit embarrassing on OlbyPlanet, like Michelle Obama being ashamed of her country for the last 26 years. There's also Bill Jefferson Clinton's latest non-bimbo eruption, along with more evidence to support Oralmann's insistence that Iran is not a threat. Are you convinced yet? Oh, and we had no doubt whatsoever that Edward R Olbermann wouldn't dare, wouldn't dare!, award a "worst person" for this! Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 1 [LOW]
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 653rd day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will in fact be indicted".
