    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    September 12, 2008
    Countdown: Friday Recappers Thread

    Bathtub Boy

    This is the recappers' comment thread for Countdown, September 12 2008.

    Welcome to You Write the Recap 2.0. This is a special thread for you to post your comments on the night's Hour of Spin. Note everything salient: smears, distortions, bias, lies, non-barking dogs...the works. Watch the first showing, the repeat, or view the videos at the Countdown website.

    We'll go through the comments, organize them, and the best will form the nucleus of our official OlbyWatch Recap. That will be posted separately, later tonight, for maximum visibility and impact. We need your help tonight documenting the shameless "journalism" of Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann.

    What to watch for tonight: We can guarantee this. You can literally bet the house on it. Tonight's Palin Smear Headline will be: "She Doesn't Know What the Bush Doctrine Is". In fact, her answer to Charlie Gibson pretty much matched Gibson's own description of The Bush Doctrine just a few years ago. But as sure as God made little green apples, and it don't rain in Indianapolis, Oralmann will make this into his Palin Smear Du Jour.

    Be an Olbermann Watch blogger--without all the muss and fuss! Comments are open: post your analysis of tonight's Hour of Spin here, and watch for your insights later tonight in the official OlbyWatch Recap.

    Standby for two hours of trashing
    Sarah and John McCain bashing
    Brought to you by
    Keith and that guy
    Campaign with no dollars cashing!

    Ding! Olby promos the Palin-Bush Doctrine smear. J$ is correct once again.

    The Orange One says Palin is a talking model with a pull string that says the same thing over and over again. He called her a doll. Olby, we can always count on you to disparage women (particularly those over 40) and continually lower the bar for smear merchants just like yourself.

    I think Gov. Palin gave a good answer to the smug, condescending Charlie Gibson about the alleged "Bush Doctrine," which is a creation of the left-wing media. She also looked very annoyed at his rudeness.

    Olby, LA Gov. Bobby Jindal said recently that Gov. Palin dispatched National Guard troops to LA in the wake of Hurricane Gustav. That is basically what she told Charlie Gibson when she responded to his question about dispatching Guard troops. You are a liar, Olby, but we already knew that.


    Since you are so smart, you tell us what the Bush Doctrine is.

    has anyone before the past two days even heard of the bush doctrine?

    Say what? Olby says he "infrequently" posts at the Daily Kos. The air is thin on Olby Planet.

    why isn't olby doing the "breaking news" of hurricane gustav? oh right b/c the RNC isn't tonight

    Ugh. Markos Molitsos refers to the trash, lies and slander posted on the Daily Kos as "investigative reporting". Clear-thinkers refer to moonbat bile-spewing bloggers like Molitsos as delusional nut-cases.

    investigative reporting...more like smearing and hate-filled posts about who should be least right wing blogs don't want to kill people

    Olby mocking Rudy Giuliani's lisp (calling him Sylvester). Of course, Kos has the same lisp, but adds a heaving chest in obvious excitement of the attention paid him by Olb.

    Has anybody noticed that Kos looks like a spawn of Peter Lorre?

    Yes Olby only "infrequently" post at that whack job website, of course he considers "infrequently" TWO posts on KOS yesterday. Name one other "Journalist" that would post on such a hate filled web site. Olby is a complete tool and nothing but a professional smear merchant and gossip monger.

    >Has anybody noticed that Kos looks like a spawn of Peter Lorre?
    I see a Joe Piscopo/Jon Cryer mix.

    Richard Madcow's new show suffering from technical difficulties as he's doing it out of Ithaca(?), NY.

    Well that's not working out and he's humped and dumped for Ike.

    Dozens mourn.

    Lets have a history lesson:

    KO wasn't at the RNC beause he "wanted" to be back in NY covering the hurricane hitting New Orleans. To "prove" that pont, he led off that Monday night with news regarding said hurricane.

    Tonight, an even larger storm is hitting Texas. KO barely mentions it.

    Conclusion: definate proof that KO was a coward when not attending RNC.


    >I see a Joe Piscopo/Jon Cryer mix.

    Work with me on this . . . With Peter Lorre we have a wider variety of appropriate movie lines

    Peter Lorre as Ugarte: You despise me, don't you?
    Bogey as Rick: If I gave you any thought I probably would.

    Story #1 - What Olberdouche doesn't tell you from the Palin interview -
    (a) Olby *again* (how many nights in a row?) says she lied about the bridge to nowhere - what Keithy doesn't tell you is that even the website run by the Alaska Democratic Party gives credit for her stopping the project.

    (b) The Orange one hits her on the"seeing war with Russia"... however, her statement in favor of having Ukraine and Georgia in NATO is the same as... Obama's *and* Biden's.

    (c) Fat Ass slams her comments about hitting terrorists in Pakistan... but, in what I'm sure is another oversight, forgets to mention her comments were essentially the same as (you guessed it) Obama's.

    (d) Olby sneers at her lack of foreign travel... and that she hasn't met with any heads of state. He says every "Vice President in the the last 32 years has met a head of state before taking office". Notice the "before taking office" qualifier to attempt to smear Palin... I'd bet a lot of money that when Palin is elected VP she too will meet with heads of state *before* taking office 2+ months later.

    (e) Olby called her a liar on whether she ever called up the National Guard... except, he must have forgotten that she actually did... she had Alaskan National Guard troops deployed to Louisana for hurricane Gustav (found in less than a minute with Google).

    At one point, the condescending Olby-jerk says that, if elected, the female VP nominee Palin would be the Chief Executive's assistant. Way to stay classy Olberboy!

    The status of Hurricane Ike, including advisory information, infrared satellite imagery, and radar, was shown on the right corner of the screen.
    #5: Graphic: "Impalin." Olby reads the Palin interview transcript. Video be damned. The Wolffe Man joined Slovenly in tearing the Governor to shreds. I assume that from skipping through it, and all segments outside of WPitW, on my DVR.
    #4: Graphic: "Politicking Iraq." Far-left Hayes had far-left fun.
    Bushed: Three gates, but none of them Bill Gates on the network that has his company in its name. Skipping along now.
    Numberless segment: Ike! Edward R. Olbermann tried to play serious newsman for this segment. Tape of Jay Gray in Galveston. Keithy pretended he was actually talking to the tape coming into it and then coming out of it.
    #3: Graphic: "Lie Detecting." Charles Babington was critical of McCain-Palin. On OlbyPlanet, that changes everything about him. After reading a Babington blurb, Olbermoronn compliments, "You have unsuspected depth, sir." Can you say "Olbypocrisy"? Kos kan't. He's the guest. New graphic: "G.O.Propaganda." And he has a new book out? Great. Worst of luck, pal. Next!
    After Gotcha clips of the McCains on "The View," we got McCain in the Membrane. Oy my goodness. Again, I say "Next!"
    Commercial break featured an ad for "The Nation"!
    #2: The Media Matters Minute.
    Worse was Rudy Giuliani. Saw it coming. "Continuing his comeback attempt by...lying like a rug." Ha! He's got a million of 'em. Fixed News! [ding!] Bush Doctrine! If you want to see the real thing, go here to see the segment of "Hannity & Colmes" that was doctored: The undoctored version of what Bear quoted (in that lispy voice) can be found with about 4:34 remaining. Rudy's line about Wikipedia, which was challenged by Alan Colmes (the invisible man on OlbyPlanet) was mocked by our resident Fat Ass, who went on to defend Wikipedia's Bush Doctrine entry as "carefully and neutrally" described. "The words 'irresponsible' and 'war monger' appear exactly...nnoooooo times, not even under the appendix at the end titled 'Criticism.' (deep inhalation): Rudy just made that up."
    Worser was Lou Dobbs. I'm a broken record, but how dare he tell the truth about Herr Olbermann! I was going to recap Keithy's attack verbatim, but it was too painful to do so. Let's just say Another Olbermann Lie occurred when he claimed he never went after Lou's children. He promptly went on to accuse him of "hiding behind your daughter's skirts."
    Worst was...Alessandra Stanley?! Are you kidding me?! No. You see, she "attacked" the sainted Charles Gibson. This...will...not...stand!
    No, forget it. I have no damn energy left. Sorry, folks.

    I swear to God, I never want to recap this stupid show ever again! For crying out loud, I have a life! I had friends that I haven't talked to in days that I wanted to call! I had concentration curls that I had yet to do tonight that I still haven't done! And I wasted my damn time on this f-ing jerk!!! Sir, you are a cancer on NBC! What in God's name (oops, guess I'm in Palin territory now) is it going to take to get this miserable lowlife and his age disparate girl toy off the air of (MS)NBC and WPIX-TV?! What, I ask you? What?!!!!!
