    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    September 10, 2008
    Countdown: Wednesday Recappers Thread

    Bathtub Boy

    This is the recappers' comment thread for Countdown, September 10 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. Pay special attention to catch tonight's Palin Smears Du Jour. And of course tonight's Special Education Komment. We're going to need your help tonight documenting the shameless "journalism" of Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann.

    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.

    Keith's no longer the "breaking news guy"
    David Gregory told Keith "bye-bye"
    Gave him a pimp slap
    Now Keith wears a dunce cap
    And that's making the Kos Kids cry

    Given Obama's recent whining about "enough is enough" regarding campaign bickering and press coverage, maybe Olby's Special Comment will be about him. In fact, I've heard that *this* is how the Special Comment will end...

    "Despite how you have whined, Sen. xxxxx, you have no entitlement to only sycophantic, deceptive, air-brushed coverage in the media. And despite how you have strutted, Sen. xxxx, you have no God-given right to the Presidency.

    Let’s have an adult campaign here, in other words and I am embarrassed to have to say this to a man who turns xx at the end of this month Senator, grow up!"

    Seems tailor written for Obama... but it was the Special Comment on John McCain back on August 18th.

    Speshul Komment on what got Olbydunce demoted - the 9/11 tribute at the RNC. Hopefully this gets him fired.

    Barry tank dweller Chris Kofinis claims the campaign is going to hit McCain and Palin "hard and fast". That has been such a blazing success lately, Chris (NOT). Attacks from Barry and Co. have been disastrous misfires that have blown up in their faces and cost them support. Wasn't Barry supposed the be the "Candidate of Change" who would elevate the campaign above the old politics of dissent and smears? And now Kofinis says Barry is about to go on the attack (or his lawyers are, anyway). More moonbat lies and hypocrisy.

    Did Olby just try to tie the Minnesota bridge collapse and Sarah Palin together in the same sentence? Unbelievable.

    Oh, snap! Olby just had to promo the candidates forum tomorrow - hosted by David Gregory. "I'll be off," he griped.

    Guiliani bashing: noun, verb, 9/11. Stay classy, Orange One! Actually, Olbytard, if Slick Willie would have ordered the hit on UBL when we had him in the crosshairs, 9/11 would just be another day instead of a day of remembrance for heroes. So yes, Olby, we can blame the Dems for 9/11 and the moonbats would do it again if we give them the chance. Get your head out of the sand, Olby.

    Uppity? Keith Olbermann is Uppity.

    I've used that word hundereds of times to refer to many people, but never, never have I used "the n-word" after the word uppity. Maybe that's what d-bags do in their little elitist worlds, but that's not how we use the word in the deep south.

    Uppity? Yeah, KO is uppity thinking that he's better than he is.

    #5; Mental heath expert obly claiming McCain suffering from "projection" about Gov. Palin and Lipstick on a pig comment by Barry. Olby claimed McCain was dealing from the bottom of the deck is his supposed attacks on Obama and that he was manufacturing outrage over the Palin remarks. The Wolfman agreed that the remarks were "innocent" and McCain "lies" and "swiftboats" Obama. Olby also tried to tie McCain's lipstick on a pig remarks to sexism. Obama isn't going to put up with McCain's "bullcrap" anymore.

    Another plug for Speshul Komit on 9/11 "outrage"

    #4 Obama taking off the gloves in regards to 527's. Disgraced Edwards minion Chris Kofinis calls McCain mean and says Obama good, McCain has no solutions. Kofinis went on to say that McCain's policies will make the country worse off.

    Yet another plug for the evil Republicans "using" 9/11 for political gain

    Bushed tried to link McCain to a so-called Bush "scandal."


    #3 Palin "scandals" Olby claimed Palin family members harrassed the unstable brother-in-law. Olby lies again about the jet and bridge to nowhere. Genie Robinson is brought in to once again agree with fat ass. Olby gives Biden debate advice.

    #2 WPITW of course "Billo" was included for not knowing about ratings when in fact it is olby who doesn't have a clue:

    For the week of the DNC, CNN was the top-rated cable news channel in Total Viewers during prime time (Live+SD) with 3,152,000 viewers. FNC was 2nd with 2,836,000 and MSNBC was 7th with 1,586,000. In total day, FNC was 3rd (1,441,000) and CNN was 5th (1,200,000).

    #1 SPESHUL KOMIT This I couldn't stomach to watch.

    Dogs that didn't bark:



    SC Dem chair: Palin primary qualification is she hasn't had abortion...

    Larry King beat the Rachel Maddow show on Tuesday. (TVNewser)

    Looks like a lot of people sampled KO's manly Maddow on Monday and just didn't like it. Look for her show to tank in the rating over the next couple of weeks.

    Hey True,

    Butch Maddogg will tank faster than than Fannie Mae stock.

    does olberwoman have a god complex or what!

    he is living a fantasy,he is a legend in his own mind

    Story Number 3 - Was Olberass being concerned that the Palin family was in a custody fight, between Sarah's sister and her young-son-tazing husband, and that a judge didn't like all the negative things that were said by the parties. Oooooh, negative comments in a custody/divorce hearing. What a scoop!

    Part of this story was a side-track about the 'bridge to nowhere' - Sarah Palin early on said she was ok with it, while McCain was very critical about it from the get go.

    I'm sure it was the time constraints on the segment, but Olby forgot to mention that Governor Palin actually *did* put a stop to the bridge project (and appropriated the funds for more reasonable uses). I sure it must have also just slipped his mind that both Obama and Biden voted multiple time to *fund* the project -and- never opposed it.

    Not to spoil the fun or anything, but Hannity crossed a line tonight. He's turning into a right wing Chris Matthews. There are implied rules about how one treats a guest and he broke those rules.

    #5: Palin attacks. The Wolffe Man took a bite of the action. (I didn't see who the first guest was.)
    #4: More Palin attacks with Chris Kofinis.
    Bushed: Bush attacks; this gate, that gate, everywhere a gate gate.
    #3: Even more Palin attacks with Geno the Race-baiter Robinson.
    McCain in the Membrane: McCain attacks.
    #2: The Media Matters Minute. Worse was O'Reilly Attack #509. More on that shortly.
    Worser was Felix Gillette the New York Observer. Yet again, I say: How dare they tell the truth about the chaos zone at (MS)NBC. (rapidly): "Not only does Andrea [Mitchell] say she never said that. She says she never said anything at that dinner, and Mr. Gillette and the New York Observer never contacted her or anybody at NBC News for a comment or a denial; one of the reasons Andrea Mitchell is 8,000 times the reporter *he* is." More PR/damage control by Attack Dog Olbermann.
    Worst was Rick Goddard (retired Air Force Major General), a Republican running for Congress in Georgia's (the Peach State, not Russia's neighbor) 8th District. Once again, Jane Fonda Olbermann went after a serviceman. His crime was referring to NBC's Ron Allen as a "very uppity newscaster." The "crime" occurred last week at the RNC when Ron interviewed Newt Gingrich on the convention floor. And Rip 'n Read is only talking about this now? Hmm. Wonder why. Anyway, since Lynn Westmoreland foolishly referred to the Obamas as "uppity" (seriously, it was dumb of him to do that), Rev. Jesse Olbermahn played the race card with Goddard. "Candidate Goddard ... must obviously be in trouble with his own party because he was watching us and not *Fox*." Out comes the accusatory paper. "But to the big point. By 'uppity,' General Stoddard's (don't you mean Goddard, Fat Ass?) campaign claims, Stoddard meant 'arrogant or presumptuous.'" (gleeful sarcasm, rightward head tilt): "Great, General, but you *said* 'uppity'...which is traditionally followed...(flashing paper toward camera, grin turns to disgust): by the N-word!" Here's Goddard's campaign website.
    That brings us to O'Reilly Attack #509. Of course. Why not attack the guy who's clobbered you in the ratings? Not to mention the fact that he actually sat down with Obama one-on-one. Bathtub Boy stayed in his bubble and spoke via satellite. "There is a theme here. See if you can spot it." So, the theme is all people who were critical of NBC? Billo the Clown! [ding!] Bill was "lying about the ratings again." Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann trotted out the Ted Baxter voice and proved me right. Here's what I said yesterday at Johnny Dollar's Place:
    "BOR is going to refer to KO in tonight's Talking Points Memo. I predict this will make BOR a Worst Person tomorrow night." Bill ended up only referring to (MS)NBC, but was, as usual, quite critical of them. Here is the T-Points transcript:,2933,420482,00.html
    And T-Points video:
    With those links in mind, let's put Man on Fan's distortions into context. Coming out of a clip of Andrea Mitchell on "The Factor" in January 2007, where she was unable to name one conservative at NBC, BOR said this:
    "Well, the interesting thing here is that MSNBC's ratings continue to be abysmal. FOX and CNN beat them badly at both conventions. The liberal press continues to prop up MSNBC, but after 12 years on the air it remains a ratings disaster and, more importantly, a dishonest enterprise."
    Keithy omitted "Well," and everything after "conventions." Then he pimped out the demo numbers for the DNC, looking down at a paper...again. "In what Fox calls the all-important advertising demographic, 25 to 54-year-old viewers, for the Democratic Convention, MSNBC beat Fixed News [ding!] in primetime an average of...917,000, 820,000...12%. Fox, last. 86 years in television, Bill, and you still don't understand the ratings?" Look who's lecturing whom about ratings.

    Story #4 - Obama says enough is enough... Olby and the tool Kofinis say that the Rethugs have no solutions... they'll only attack to distract (alliterative!). Kofinis then says that "If Sarah hits, (they need) to hit back and hit back hard!" LOL, I think when Obama says 'enough is enough' he must actually be talking about how Sarah Palin and her popularity has gotten into his campaign's head.

    Story #1 - Lipstick... Keith did some research and looked up the word 'projection' in a dictionary (we're proud of you Keefy!).

    McCain campaign 'manufactured faux outrage' (talk about Olby projection) - Obama says 'Enough!'. Olby runs a 3-minute Obama commercial - Obama further explains that Pailn was the lipstick and McCain policies were the pig (ahhh that clears things up). Inspector Olbman has PROOF that others have said "You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig." Olby says Obama should call 'bull-crap'- Wolfie-man simpers in agreement.

    McCain campaign lies... 'This is like how we were manipulated in the run up to the war' (stay classy Wolfie).

    Palin was picked because she was a woman... and she got some earmarks! The horror.

    Disgraced Communications director Chris Kofinis once again appears with Fat Ass to render an opinion on JohnMcCain, the 527's and Obama cutting the democratic smear machine loose on McCain. Olby loves to mention the fact that Kofinis was Edwards communications director. Kofinis, clearly uncomfortable with the ongoing reference, is forced to bow down and bend over to GWM (Goebell's Wing Man) on Olby Planet and continue to be associated with the bimbo-banging John Edwards.

    However, it really does beg the question, What is Kofinis still doing on Television commentating? The man has no credibility claiming he knew nothing about Edwards and the Bim. If Kofinis had no idea the Johnnnno was in the sack with his lover, how can he possibly render any opinion worthy of discussion regarding a political race?

    Quads -

    I had the same reaction to Kofinis. How can a person stomach being associated with that scumbag Edwards. And then I remembered that he is willing to participate on KO's "meldown" as one of KO' s ass clown posse.

    Obviously, Kofinis has no shame (not to mention intelligence, honor, or dignity!)
