"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith "Czechoslovakia" Olbermann
The opening spiel proved that Keith Oralmann is as predictable as Pavlov's dog in a bell factory. As we wrote over an hour before the show aired:
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".
OLBERMANN: Gov Palin doesn't know what the Bush doctrine is!
Of course, Mr Misogyny had to find some degrading sexist terminology to smear Palin with, so...
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. [The writer who coined the term, Charles Krauthammer, agrees with you, Philly. --J$]
Olby, you called Gov Palin a liar for saying she deployed National Guard to LA. But Gov. Bobby Jindal said recently that she did exactly that in the wake of Hurricane Gustav. And that's basically what she told Charlie Gibson when she responded to his question about dispatching Guard troops. You are the liar, Olby, but we already knew that.
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 Wolffe Man and Krazy Keith had a field day cackling over Palin's statements about Georgia and NATO. In fact, they even attacked her for supporting Georgia's admission into NATO. Said Wolffie: Imagine if Barack Obama had said that!
Hey geniuses, it's not necessary to imagine it at all:
Notably [Obama], like McCain, embraces Georgia's aspirations to enter NATO -- the key plank of a hawkish stand toward Russia, and a key source of Russia's anger.(Both McCain and Obama are reiterating past positions here.)
"I have consistently called for deepening relations between Georgia and transatlantic institutions, including a Membership Action Plan for NATO, and we must continue to press for that deeper relationship," Obama says.
Olby and The Wolffman. Two incompetent, slovenly political hacks.
And then we are treated to an interview with Screw 'Em himself. For the first time, Herr Olbermann does a disclaimer that he sometimes posts at Daily Kos. After Olbermann Watch has hammered him for this ethical lapse repeatedly So count this as another triumph for the power and influence of this site!
We got a bell moment tonight. Bathtub Boy cited Charles Babington of the AP as a source for criticism over McCain ads. Yes, the same Babington who Fat Ass screamed at two weeks ago: "Get new work!" But not tonight. If you agree with Olby, you're permitted to exist and have a job. So all that is forgotten in a flash. But it was good enough for Olbermoronn to suggest to Screw 'Em that all this criticism of McCain represents a--get ready for it--"tipping point!" [Ding!] Surprise surprise, Screw 'Em agreed: Yeth, it ith a tipping point. (By the way, since Screw 'Em is a partisan Democrat, that means we get to update The List yet again!)
Ugh. Markos Molitsos refers to the trash, lies and slander posted on the Daily Kos as "invethtigative 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 killed...at least right wing blogs don't want to kill people.
Yes Olby only "infrequently" post at that whack job website, of course he considers "infrequently" TWO posts on KOS yesterday. [Total: 19 articles and 172 comments--J$] 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.
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. GUTLESS!
Edward R. Olbermann tried to play serious newsman for the hurricane 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.
After Gotcha clips of the McCains on "The View," we got McCain in the Membrane. Oy my goodness. "Next!"
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.
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.
If it's Friday, it's our weekly assessment of Krazy Keith's masculinity. This week, Monkeymann attacked Fox and other broadcasters 22 times. Olby's source (Hillary Clinton's Media Matters) criticized (MS)NBC 13 times, but Keithy protected his corporate masters with zero criticisms. Plus he gets a special added -10 factor for his insufferable codswallop that "responsible television networks" don't run the 9/11 footage, just about 12 hours before his own channel did exactly that: ran the 9/11 footage--not once, but twice! That makes this week's Olbermann Manhood Quotient: -80 [eunuch limp].
Finally "Man on Fan" Olbermann tossed it to Rachel Madcow, and did his obligatory chit-chat with her to try to keep her ratings from bottoming out. In the course of it, Olbermoronn declared that the election of McCain-Palin was "a terrifying prospect". Ya gotta wonder, why did it take A-Mess-NBC two years to figure out Edward R Olbermann is a slovenly political hack, not an anchorman?
Standby for two hours of trashing
Sarah and John McCain bashing

Campaign with no dollars cashing!
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 860th day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will in fact be indicted". Great thanks to our OlbyWatch recappers who contributed!
UPDATE: Bonus video! The comments by Lou Dobbs that caused Monkeymann to pop a gasket:
