"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Keith Oralmann barked the opening spiel: Super delegates switching to Obama! Obama is "unflappable"! Obama's advantages! Slam on McCain! CunninghamGate! ClemensGate! But that's chump change. Wait until you get to Bathtub Boy actually uttering a criticism of Barack Obama--you won't believe why. It's hump day at Olbermann Watch.
#5: Clinton worried about Super delegates (Blue Blog Source: HuffPo). Every defection is "symbolic" (what, not a "metaphor"?) Debate: Clinton made "attack after attack", Obama "unrattled", "well prepared", "unflappable" (again!), will "resonate with voters". Clinton "tries to scold" Obama, who didn't "John McCain it" and gave a straightforward answer, "so rare in politics". Yikes, Keith, Stop drooling! Dana Milbank, sans splashy suits, nattered that the media see Hillary as "a loser" and was Great Thanksed. Hillary trying to "stall" the Super delegates. Robinson parroted; he wasn't Great Thanksed but he was Pleasured.
#4: Obama's cash surge! But first, breaking news! Hillary was asked about a "dream ticket", but didn't answer. With that breaking news out of the way, on to Obama's moolah. Obama never agreed to accept public financing; his position was actually "very nuanced". Keith pimped out Slippery Shuster, who rationalized away a Barack discrepancy over donations.
Comedian! [Ding!] After attacking CNN for bragging how they beat Countdown in February, Olby went on to #3: McCain "tries to school" Obama on Iraq, but gets "smoked" by Obama who "runs rings around him". And then, the bizarre, the unusual, the unexpected. Yes, worthy of Ripley's Believe It Or Not. Bathtub Boy actually utters a criticism of Barack Obama. And it's an OlbyPlanet classic: Oralmann complained because Obama said he respects McCain's service. No, we are not making this up. Hey, people, this is what's called a "news hour"? Monkeymann claims to be a "journalist"? He's no Edward R Murrow. You want a better comparison? Think Leni Riefenstahl. Leftist Carlson of the constipated face yammered.
#2: Bill Buckley remembrance, with Merkle taking the opportunity to roar how "gloriously wrong" he was on so many things. #1: Roger Clemens..
In the Media Matters Minute, Herr Olbermahn attacked "lunatic fringer" Jonah Goldberg (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters), and a Republican (natch!) Florida state rep (Blue Blog Source: DailyKos). "Worst" was John McCain, for not remembering that he met Bill Cunningham (Blue Blog Source: AmericaBlog). We don't think there's been an Hour of Spin with such a lopsided ObamaSuckUp-to-McCainSmear ratio as this one, complete with "Man on Fan" Olbermann actually objecting to honoring his wartime service. If this were 1974, Keith would be Jane Fonda.
Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 2 [LOW]
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 662nd day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will be indicted".
UPDATE: Mortman weighs in on "fat ass"
