The Lyrics

My personal "Rant, I"-tribute to the nightly annoyance that is Keith Olbermann's "Countdown". This parody's been a long time coming... and he's been a long time going, although rumor has it his throne at MSNBC may just be starting to crumble...

Olbermann, Keith Olbermann: You still here—your hot air blowin'?
Every eve, a snarky showin'
Slander, plenty: spun… from far-left Olbermann

Olbermann, so partisan: I'm ill from your airwaves bashing
Vile "I Gotcha's": rants and trashing
Seems everyone's been reamed by Olbermann

Used to be a passable "reporter"
Sporting news; MSNBC
Now ego grating constantly
On the nerves of most everyone

Olbermann, oh Olbermann! Sunk so low, your ratings dying
No longer wry, my dear—just trying
Can't even watch; there's no denying you're no fun
Keith Olbermann….

Keith Olbermann…

[Long-winded outtake: Fade, mute, or just change the freakin' channel…]

Great job on the OlberBLAM!!!!

I'm characteristically ambivalent regarding Keith, but unequivocally endorse this Milleresque rant!

I DID like Olbermann on ESPN. Too bad that, when MSNBC approached him, his agent didn't say "And they're not gonna get him!" (Olbermann's signature line). ;D

He should've just stayed on ESPN. Saw him a lot on there. Only watched him on MSNBC when he was first starting there. Cool parody, 5's

Worth waiting for! If you waited longer, he might be gone. His initials KO surely fit. I watch him & Rachel Maddow during FNC commercials just for laughs. 5s

Rants and raves to

Chuck K. Thanks-- glad you enjoyed!

Mark Scotti: Thanks! (One of these days, *Pow*-- to the moon!)

Rush Stern: The truth always lies somewhere in the middle... unless you're Keith, of course... Thanks for v/c! :)

OMR: Haha! :)

AFW: You're probably not missing much, unless you enjoy watching someone slowly melt down on national TV... ;) Thanks as always for v/c!

Phil: He was a decent sports analyst... and is still barely tolerable on the NFL Sunday team, but the "Countdown" is a definite "miss".... ;) Thanks!

Barry: LOL @ the "KO" comment... no kidding. And Maddow *is* another one who never lets the facts get in the way of a good story! ;)

This slur on a highly-regarded journalist who was such a major assist during my campaign (shoes shined, booty kissed, etc.) is tottttally unacceptable. How would I ever have become your Mess -- uh, President (I *hate* not having a teleprompter!) - without Keith Obamaman? (rumor has it that he thought of changing his name.)

As you are obviously one of those poor people who clings to guns and religion to relieve the pains caused by jer - uh, journalists (teleprompter! I'm hoarse! Of course! My Kingdom for a teleprompter!), I have issued an Executive Order awarding you a bailout of $555.00.

Don't watch much Olbermann, but caught a glimpse of his clips from YouTube, when he was slamming Rush Limbaugh. I heard the way he talked! What an a**! If I did a tribute to that arrogant Olbermann, I would've used Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" and converted to Olbermann, if I knew enough about him. Great job tributing him and very hilarious! 555.

Mr. President: I am aware of your close relationship with Mr. Olbermann, and hope that you have eliminated the possibility of scandal by being totally forthcoming with Mrs. Obama about it. (He has not, as yet, produced an infant for media coverage, but it's always wise to be prepared.)

As for the bailout money, I'm grateful; however, I was a bit disconcerted when I went to collect it and was met on site by two burly IRS agents, who refused to show me their credentials, but insisted that I must immediately return the money in order to purchase a new teleprompter for you. When I started to object, another agent attempted to run me down in his Toyota. I ask you, Sir, is that any way to run a government?

CMM: IMHO, Mr. Olbermann deserves all the skewering he can get. I DKTOS, but it sounds like a perfect fit-- have at it! :) Thanks for v/c, as always.

Ms. Fiddlegirl, the President has asked me to convey to you his assurances that he and Mr. Olbermann have always practiced "safe screwing" of the public; therefore, while he appreciates your concern, there is no need to be alarmed about potential conception. (In fact, the President has no conception whatsoever.) The First Lady is fully aware of this relationship, and considers Mr. Olbermann "one of the family".

The President also conveys his assurances that no one attempted to cause you bodily harm; rather, the vehicle suddenly accelerated, and the brakes failed, for no apparent reason. That is being investigated as we speak.

Finally, the President offers his assurances that the 1,473 new taxes that he has proposed, including that on your bailout funds, will benefit all Americans, or at least, those who contributed to his campaign. His teleprompters are provided at no taxpayer cost by MSNBC, as a public service allowing them to retain their broadcast license. The President regrets that this surprise attack -- er, "high level summit meeting" -- came without notice, thereby not allowing his speechwriters to put the proper words in his mouth. Rest assured that the President listens to *all* citizens, town hall meetings, Republicans, and all other points of view, before ignoring them and doing as he pleases. Thank you for your participation in that process.

Very truly yours (but why would you want me?),
Robert Gibbs

Mr. Gibbs, Thank you for taking the time to respond to my comment. My good friend, Tommy Turtle, has been assuring me of pretty much the same things for quite some time now. We are both very much looking forward to watching the administrative process "in action" on television soon, as promised in the president's campaign. I look forward to seeing your next press briefing as well. You have such lovely ties.

Best regards,
