    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    September 16, 2008
    Countdown: Tuesday Recappers Thread

    Bathtub Boy

    This is the recappers' comment thread for Countdown, September 16 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 documenting the shameless "journalism" of Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann.


    What to watch for: We'd like you to keep an ear peeled for the following items. We're going out on a limb here and predicting tonight's Dogs That Did Not Bark. The infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann, being a slovenly political hack, will not touch either of these with a ten-foot eyebrow comb:

    • Barack Obama campaign uses doctored video to trick the media.
    • Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac contributions to Washington politicians released: Barack Obama (in less than four years) comes in at #2.

    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.

    I would add one more topic: Olby's violation of the Logan Act by admittedly conducting "negotiations" in Iraq.

    Dog that won't bark. Obama and McCain virtually tied in New Jersey of all places. When was the last time New Jersey went Republican?

    I spotted a brand-new Olbermann Lie about Palin tonight. I'm keeping it to myself though until the recap is published; I want to see if anyone else caught it.

    Palin has a tanning bed installed in her mansion as a conservative website sez she's suffering FROM DEPRESSION!

    Palin's favorable/unfavorable ratings HAVE DROPPED 10 POINT IN 3 DAYS!
    Still she's still favorable 48 to 36 (down from 52 to 30). Newsweak poll of course.

    Palin lies (AGAIN) about the teleprompter(gate). Keef's sources saw the teleprompter AND IT WORKED FINE. And she quoted A MCARTHYITE ANTI-SEMITE!

    Chris from the Nation shakes his head in amazed disgust. How can she continue to tell the teleprompter lie? Scandalous indeed. She won't work with the investigation of her in Alaska--she must have something to hide. The Palin bubble has burst!


    Dog not barking--Palin releases memos showing Monagan fired for insubordination. Also on Levin today Alaska lawyer today explains the legislative investigation has no standing.

    Cheney anti-biographer Martin Gelman quotes Dick Armey, Cheney bullshitted him by saying Iraq had suitcase nukes. Armey: if i had known I could have stopped [the war]. Cheney's fault? Bush's fault?

    Keefy huffing about Gov. Sarah "invoking" her special needs child. She sez she increased funds for special needs children, but keefy sez she cut the budget for the special olympics by half--"that's sick" Keefy hyperbolates.

    Worst person is the conservative Kevin Williamson of NRO, for in Keefy's elliptical reasoning implying she suffers from depression. Williamson mentions Keefy in his note while speculating why Gov. Sarah has a tanning bed. A reader sez lots of people in Alaska have tanning beds for Seasonal Affective Disorder--keef mockingly assumes the prosecutor and does a reductio ad absurdum bit, concluding that Williamson is hurting Palin--(obviously for mention Keefy)

    Ends with a bit that McCain said he invented the blackberry--except it wasn't McCain it was an aide, and he never said "blackberry."

    Dog that won't Bark. John McCain co-sponsered a bill in 2005 that would have reigned in FANNIE and FREDDYMAC. Who, stop the bill? The Democrats.

    Dog that won't bark. Barak Obama brings his best friend on the campaign trail. His teleprompter!!! He is a a a now a a a taking it to town hall a a a a meetings. Maybe the liberals should elect his teleprompter. Electing an inanimate object would be a first in US history, if you don’t count Al Gore as VP.

    "Palin has a tanning bed installed in her mansion as a conservative website sez she's suffering FROM DEPRESSION!"

    That has to be the Olbermann lie because everyone in Alaska gets a tanning bed since during the winter it is dark most of the time.

    Is the lie the fact that Olbermann used the same doctored video that Obama has been passing to media members?

    According to Olbermann, we can no longer make fun of Algore for inventing the Internet although Algore, himself, not a low-surrogate, said,
    "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country's economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system."
    Now, the Tax Cheat informs us, McCain is henceforth to be known as "the inventor of the Blackberry" because someone from his campaign said the following:"Telecommunications of the United States is a premier innovation in the past 15 years, comes right through the Commerce committee...So you're looking at the miracle John McCain helped create and that's what he did."
    This is so lame. Fat Ass isn't even trying anymore. It's sad really.

    The Media Matters Minute was News Corp-less. That's the good news. The bad news is the following:
    Worse was G. Gordon Liddy for daring to criticize Obama. "Soon to celebrate 78 years of living on his own personal plane of consciousness." Why does Keith hate old people? Talking Point! [ding!] Olby tried a bad Liddy impression. Obama really was born in this country, though. The eeevil O'Reilly has the birth certificate to prove it, as he said in his viewer e-mail segment tonight. On OlbyPlanet, KeithO the Klown did the same thing, but with that snark and sarcasm his bosses go ga-ga over. "The whacko site WorldNetDaily..." Watergate! [ding!]
    Worser was Eddie Burke, host of "The Eddie Burke Show" on Smart Radio AM 700 KBYR, an *Anchorage* Fox News Radio affiliate.
    Burke told off two female protesters at some anti-Sarah Palin protest, gave out their cell number, told listeners to abuse them, and the two got death threats. He was suspended for a week. Not good enough for Man on Fan who just had to work in Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh (who are nothing alike). "Mr. Burke, he got a paltry one-week suspension, and no doubt, consideration to fill in someday for comedian [ding!] Rush Limbaugh or Billo [ding!] or some other of radio's inducers to violence."
    Worst was Kevin D. Williamson of National Review Online for having the gumption to post a reader's criticism of Olbermoronn for last night's Palin tanning bed attacks...uh, I mean reportage.
    Keith read the full "quote [ding!]" from the reader with a condescensing tone. Fat Ass scoffed at the diagnosis the reader put forth, launching another Palin attack through a series of rapidly-spoken questions. Hypothetical! "And one more [question] to Mr. Williamson and his unknown reader. Are you sure this is a better tack to explain the Governor's private tanning bed...than just saying...(raised hands): she wanted a tanning bed?! Kevin Williamson of the National Review Online! With friends like this, who needs enemies? Not helping Governor Palin too much and today's..."
    Remember, OlbyWatch readers, Jeff Zucker looooves this guy.

    Counted 4 more citations of "McCain sez he invented the blackberry!" on Richard Madcow's chucklefest. The lib echo chamber testing out the rivets on their gas cans.

    Factor, I think this from Youngjim might be the big lie.

    "Palin lies (AGAIN) about the teleprompter(gate). Keef's sources saw the teleprompter AND IT WORKED FINE. And she quoted A MCARTHYITE ANTI-SEMITE!"

    Your link to McCain's sponsoring a bill three years ago, that was killed by the Dems, to rein in Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac is right on point. The other point it brings up that the problems being caused by these sub prime loans are essentially the fault of the Dems. This was all the creation of the Dems to level the playing field so that unqualified borrowers could buy homes just as easily as their more qualified neighbors.

    I don't know why McCain and Palin haven't jumped on this as well as the fact that the two biggest beneficiaries of their money to influence politicians for the last 10 years are Chris Dodd followed by Obama, even though he has only been there a few years.

    Story #3 – “Pulling back the curtain on Cheney”

    The Olby Book Club – an interview with "Angler" author Barton Gelman. Keithy decries what a criminal Cheney was… according to fatass, Cheney: was solely responsible for the Iraq war, was secretive, manipulative, and was tipping the historic balance of power to the president. The VP’s crimes? Cheney had a conversation with a congressman… Cheney interpreted the separation of powers different than Olby did… a surveillance program was overseen by Cheney… and, when Cheney got selected as the VP nominee, he ::gasp:: didn’t have to fill out a VP questionnaire form! Gelman, it goes without saying, was “great Thanksed!”

    Story #1 “Surprise! McCain invented the Blackberry”

    Olby decries that Al Gore was smeared with the line that he “invented the Internet”. Then, Fatass pushes the smear that McCain claimed to have invented the Blackberry. The incriminating audio that Keith played, interestingly enough, never actually makes this claim (the McCain backer being recorded was discussing McCain’s support for the telecommunications industry – which *did* set the stage for devices like the Blackberry)… but, Orangeman never lets contradicting audio get in the way of a good lie. Rachael Maddow, telecommunications expert, opined on the impending death of the McCain campaign due to MaCain’s “Blackberry lie”. Obly tells a bizarre story about when he was a sportscaster and Rudy Guiliani made a joke about the weather. Maddow obviously then has to link Sarah Palin in to this story. Obly cracks-wise about Mcain inventing the wheel too! Yuks all around on Olby-planet.

    Mike C, you know, b/c I've told you over and over, that I love your recaps BUT my poor old eyes, cataracts and all, have a terrible time reading them b/c you don't skip a space between segments.

    I hope I didn't offend you!

    It's fine, Grammie. Johnny will add spaces for the finished recap.

    I suppose Olbermann feels that Sara Palin shouldn't be spending the vast vast fortune it takes to buy her very own tanning bed.

    Who does she think she is-- Marie Antoinette? Imelda Marcos?

    Keith thinks Gov. Palin should do the egalitarian thing and have herself spray painted orange by little Oompa Loompa minions as he does.

    Nobody has identified tonight's brand-spanking-new lie yet. And it was delivered with such over-the-top faux indignation by the Orange one.

    The "news show of record" he'll feign
    Nightly news is bashing McCain
    At (MS)NBC
    Barack's message is free
    Kountdown to Obama's Kampaign

    On the subject that dogs that won't seems funny for a bunch that likes to mock McCain because he "can't" E-mail or use a computer that Team Obama wouldn't think that no one would post the entire video of what Carly Fiorina said on YouTube or other sites..but I guess they (correctly) believe that the MSM like KO will not report it they do with most of Barry O's lies and distortions. New Murrow indeed.

    Man this was a bad day for Olbermann
    McCain in a hardworking town in Ohio,telling the state how Obama lied about creating the bi-partisan stimulus package, and how he didnt even bother to show up and vote......
    And how he was too busy sucking penis in Hollywood to get money for his campaign....
    And God how midwesterners hate to hear the name Barbara Striesand, you just know Obama is sitting on a chair in some mansion saying to himself, why the fuck did go back on my promise....oh yeah , its cuz people kept telling me what a star i was... and now look at me... i'm listening to the ugliest woman on earth sing in my face.....while pennsylvania and ohio and michigan find out ive only been in office 143 days.

    Palin cut funds for the Special Olympics is the lie.

    She actually raised the budget

    That's a good link, but it doesn't directly address the Special Olympics. Still, you get a genuine no-prize because you DID identify Olbermann's Big Lie of the Night. Our recap, coming in just minutes, will include the absolute proof.
