THE NEWS HOLE: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN

Quote:
ABOUT THE NEWS HOLE

It's the new award-winning blog* from the cast and crew of the award-winning television news hour** "Countdown with Keith Olbermann."

We heard about this whole "blogosphere" business from Tom DeLay, and came to the immediate realization that we too, "needed to become involved" in it.

So here it is. Covering the big news, the small news, medium-sized and irregular, The News Hole strives to bring everything you love or hate about Countdown to the internets.

Your feedback and hate mail is encouraged.

Olbermann commentary takes Condi to history school

Quote:
MSNBC's Keith Olbermann has delivered one of his "special comments" on remarks that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made during an interview on Fox News Sunday, where she compared Saddam Hussein to Adolf Hitler.

"On the Sunday morning interview show 'Of Broken Record' on Fox, Dr. Rice spoke a paragraph, which if it had been included in a remedial history paper at the weakest high school in the nation would've gotten the writer an "F" — maybe an expulsion," Olbermann said. "If Congress were now to revise the Iraq authorization, she said, out loud, with an adult present: "… it would be like saying that after Adolf Hitler was overthrown, we needed to change, then, the resolution that allowed the United States to do that, so that we could deal with creating a stable environment in Europe after he was overthrown."

Olbermann added, "The secretary's résumé reads that she has a master’s degree and a Ph.D in political science. The interviewer should have demanded to see them, on the spot. Dr. Rice spoke 42 words. She may have made more mistakes in them than did the president in his State of the Union Address in 2003."

"There is, obviously, no mistaking Saddam Hussein for a human being; but nor is there any mistaking him for Adolf Hitler," Olbermann continued. "Invoking the German dictator who subjugated Europe; who tried to exterminate the Jews; who sought to overtake the world is not just in the poorest of taste, but in its hyperbole, it insults not merely the victims of the Third Reich, but those in this country who fought it and defeated it."

Olbermann argues that "you can't cherry-pick life — whether life in 2007, or life in the history page marked 1945," and that Rice should at least learn to use "the Google."

Olbermann Catches Conservatives Shaming Themselves

Keith Olbermann takes aim at Newt Gingrich for blaming residents of New Orleans for the devastation of Katrina, “comedian” Rush Limbaugh for suggesting that Barack Obama could own Al Sharpton because of their ancestry, and, of course, Ann “Coultergeist” for calling John Edwards “that name.”
