Ombudsman back on "Countdown"
OLBERMANN: It turns out that the administration is not just getting criticism from the Democrats and from certain Republicans, but it’s now been slammed by, of all people, Faith Hill and her husband, Timothy McGraw. Both of them, the country singers, bashing the president for not doing enough to help the victims of the hurricane in the South. Now, is that it? Is that the final nail? Do you know you’re in trouble when country music stars go after you? Are they going to write a song about him now?I got quite a chuckle when I saw this on "Countdown."
MILBANK: They’re already singing a new tune up on Capitol Hill.
It’s, How Can I Miss You If You Won’t Go Away?
But it’s a grim sign for our president, as if he needs any more.
OLBERMANN: A chastened Dana Milbank, national political reporter of “The Washington Post,” not singing that song for us, as he might have previously before the ombudsman came after him. Thanks for joining us, Dana.
MILBANK: Thank you, Keith.
We haven't forgotten about you either, Ms. Howell. But it's always good when the likes of Keith Olbermann keeps you in the public eye.
