"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Questions swirled as Keith Oralmann bellowed the opening spiel: Will we hear about the "Spitzer Scandal?" Nope, it started off with Obama's delegates! He's still got more than Hillary. Clinton and the dream ticket! Obama is up! SNL Live again! Oh, and as an afterthought: Spitzer and the call girl! The (S)candal word? Not used. It's an especially blue Monday at Olbermann Watch.
#5: The Spitzer Scandal? No such thing. It's Delegate-Gate: Hillary "invented" a new category. Again, Clinton "inventing" new categories of delegates. It was around this point that the audio started cutting in and out--oh well, the less Bear one has to hear the better. Cliton may try to poach Obama's pledged delegates. Todd nattered but was not Great Thanksed.
Who's got credentials? Hillary's trip to Bosnia and peace work in Ireland debunked. The media are giving Hillary's "silly" claims "a buy"! The Wolffe Man simpered.
Olby teased a later segment: "Spitzer? Don't Even Know 'Er!" The Laughing Stagehand loved it, and he probably loved it even more when he read it online hours ago (Blue Blog Source: HuffPo). Yes, Monkeymann is now even lifting his jokes from the blue blogs.
#4: The Spitzer Scandal? No, it's back to attacking Clinton, this time for being inconsistent about Obama's qualifications. The "dumbest thing yet" from Clinton. Plus the girl in Clinton's ad is supporting Obama. So there! Dana Milbank, sans splashy suits, was not Great Thanksed.
After a few Halliburtons [Ding!] [Ding!] and an "under the bus" [Ding!] we got #3: The Spitzer Scandal? We'll see if that "s" word gets used (remember, it was used just a week ago regarding a McCain "scandal"). No s-word on the screen: the headline reads "strange bedfellows, then eliot flesh". Maybe he's trying to cut a deal. But Edward R Olbermann is like Old Faithful: you know he'll find a way to spin it, and he did. Why was this leaked? Was it the Bush Justice Department? Vitter wasn't leaked. Was it because he was a Democratic governor? Under the bus! [Ding!] It's all a Greek tragedy, according to Keithy.
No, you didn't see any "Democrats in Crisis!" You didn't have a Rachel Maddow type there to gleefully cackle about someone caught in a sex scancal. And, unless we missed it during a sound outage, the S-word itself? Never used. No David Shuster on "scandal watch". Never has it been more transparently obvious what a slovenly political hack Oralmann is.
#2: plug for #1. #1: SNL skewers Hillary, much to Bathtub Boy's delight.
In the Media Matters Minute, Herr Olbermann attacked Brent Bozell (Blue Blog Source: Think Progress), Joseph Abrams (Blue Blog Source: Crooks & Liars) (Fixed News [Ding!] Fox Noise [Ding!]) for writing this, and "xenophobe" Steve King (Blue Blog Source: DailyKos).
