"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith "Czechoslovakia" Olbermann
Another day, another Olbermann Palin smear. But tonight Olby doubled his pleasure, doubled his fun. He gave us not only a new Olbermann lie about Sarah Palin, he tossed in for good measure a new Olbermann lie about Bill O'Reilly! Herr Olbermahn, merrily rewriting facts and proving again that he is a slovenly political hack.
Story # 4 - McCain knows politics, if not economics...McCain isn't a fan of government regulation and taxes... and that's a no-no on Olby-planet. Geno Robinson says "you know" a lot in between spewing dem talking points against McCain. At the end, Olby of course, throws in a gratuitous Plain slam - Geno doubles down and mocks her intelligence. Olby-yuks "Thanks and take care."
Story # 3 Dirty tricks Season Begins... A story about Obama's new race-baiting anti-McCain ad that smears McCain as anti-amesty and misquotes (multiple times) Rush Limbaugh? Or, the latest Acorn vote fraud scandal? Are you kidding... not on Olby-Planet!
It's Olby Book Club Time - Allen Raymond's "How to Rig an Election - Confessions of a Republican Operative" - Fat Ass starts by covering a story and then frets that actually "covering the story" could supress the the dem vote (which must really be the aim of the eeeevil republicans). The author sets him straight and says the coverage would actually increase the dem vote. Needless to say, Olby's "scoop" petered out from there.
Why waste any more time, let's get straight to Oralmann's first smear: tonight's lie about Sarah Palin. And in the true Orwellian [Ding!] fashion that Bathtub Boy loves to employ, his lie about Palin? That Palin herself lied:
Follow: Palin told Gibson she didn't hesitate when asked to run. But tonight, she told Sean Hannity that...well wait, let's get Merkle's exact words so that his lie is laid bare:
Governor Palin insists to Sean Hannity that she did not immediately accept the spot on the ticket, that she hesitated and put it to a family vote.... For God's sake Governor, you're coming across as an out-of-control liar.
Well this is what happens when you claim to quote an interview that hasn't even been broadcast yet. In fact, Palin did not say she hesitated. She did not say, let alone "insist", that she didn't immediately accept.
PALIN: Just the utmost honor is what I felt when he actually said "do you want to help me do this?" And I said "Absolutely, let's get in there and let's reform. Let's shake some things up." HANNITY: What was your family's reaction...? PALIN: It was a time of asking the girls to vote on it anyway, and they voted unanimously on it "yes".
So where was Sarah Palin "insisting" that she hesitated? It's clear she agreed immediately, exactly as she said to Gibson. The family's reaction to her immediate decision is something entirely different. But hey, who cares if Krazy Keith smears Palin with another lie, compounded with a doctored, counterfeit quote? Anything to serve the cause of Herr Olbermahn.
Oh and the only question left: which blue blog did Olby raid for this particular bit of fractured insight? He didn't have to look far. It was Olbermoronn's own blog, Daily Kos.
Oh, there was also a revival of The Anthrax Conspiracy. This one he lifed from Salon.
MikeC & J$:
After Bear covered a bear loose in California, we got the Media Matters Minute, which featured O'Reilly Attack #511, and Another Olbermann Lie.
Worse was Rupert Murdoch (again?), made to look like he cares more about the well-being of News Corp than the hard times on Wall Street.
Worser was Attack #511. "Our silver, Billo the Clown [Ding!], reading the GOP Talking Points [Ding!] about Michelle Obama." Yes, fair reportage of Mrs. Obama in The Obama Chronicles is all part of those Talking Points [Ding!]. Here's the video from last night:
Man on Fan "reported" that evil Bill used called Michelle an angry woman five times and his poor guests disagreed with him. Those poor souls, right, Merkle? Sideshow Bob rake reference. The crazy Ted Baxter voice was used (again?). Fat Ass read a transcript and claimed that Rebecca Johnson, a contributor editor at Vogue magazine, replied to Mr Bill "don't they say that about you, too?" (i.e. "angry"). Olbermoronn spun that into a guest turning on the evil O'Reilly, throwing it right back in his face, leaving O'Reilly "flummoxed."
Another Olbermann Lie! Just view the video: Johnson's comment was a joke, and O'Reilly was not in the least flummoxed. Do you get the idea that Keithy never even bothers to watch the video of this stuff? He just takes what his writers give him from whatever blue blog they lifted it from (in this case, Hillary Clinton's Media Matters). Oralmann of course added the "flummoxed" part himself. Which is to say: he made it up out of thin air! That's the best kind of Olbermann Lie.
As a wrap to his "flummoxed" lie, Fat Ass added: "Viewer Participation Day. Make up your own joke here." Keithy has viewers? Wait, let me backtrack. Does Keithy have 3 million viewers a night? Insert your own response here.
Worst was Rush Limbaugh. Comedian! [Ding!] Rush was "carrying the water" defending Sarah Palin. Same person that said Feminazi! Out comes the gotcha paper, Rush attacking Hillary Clinton when she cried that January day in New Hampshire, which Edward R. Olbermoronn puts up to his face, pausing to look into the camera and make a mocking face while reading the words "emotional blackmail." When he was finished, he entoned: "And not a single one of the sheep listening to him talk out of Face #2 today said of Limbaugh...(voice dropping): 'This guy is the biggest fraud on the radio dial!'" It sounded like Olbermahn was channeling the devil when he bellowed "dial!" "Comedian [ding!] Rush Limmmbbbauggggh! Today's Worst...Person...How's that bear doing?...in the Worrrldddduh!"
When counting his nuts, he counts none
Conventions covered? Just one
Unless they're a (D)
He should go to Iraq just for fun
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 865th day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will in fact be indicted". Great thanks to our OlbyWatch recappers who did such an assiduously good job tonight with a thoroughly thankless task!
