Countdown Kiss and Run?

On the Wednesday Edition of Countdown Keith Olbermann told President Bush to "Shut up".

After the show Keith Olbermann was swarmed by cats dressed in what appeared to be costumes from the movie Star Wars. Those in the studio feared that Olbermann was being attacked by the infamous Bite & Run Brigade. However in a shocking turn of events he was kissed gently and thanked by each cat.

One cat wearing dressed as Princess Leia in the slave bikini outfit sat on his lap and purred, until asked to leave. Unconfirmed sources believe that cat was Zevo Calamari, one of the founders of the Pooses for Peace. The only casualty of the event was Mr. Olbermann's suit which was covered in cat hair. Later Olbermann joined the cats at a Star Wars themed birthday party for George Lucas. He came dressed as Hans Solo.

Here is a small portion of Keith's commentary last night:

"Mr. President,” he was asked, “you haven’t been golfing in recent years. Is that related to Iraq?
“Yes,” began perhaps the most startling reply of this nightmarish blight on our lives as Americans — on our history.
“It really is. I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the Commander-in-Chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be as — to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”
Golf, Sir?
Golf sends the wrong signal to the grieving families of our men and women butchered in Iraq?
Do you think these families, Mr. Bush - their lives blighted forever — care about you playing golf?
Do you think, Sir, they care about you?
You, Mr. Bush, let their sons and daughters be killed.
Sir, to show your solidarity with them - you gave up golf?
Sir, to show your solidarity with them - you didn’t give up your pursuit of this insurance-scam, profiteering, morally and financially bankrupting war.
Sir, to show your solidarity with them - you didn’t even give up talking about Iraq - a subject about which you have incessantly proved without pause or backwards glance, that you may literally be the least informed person in the world?
Sir, to show your solidarity with them, you didn’t give up… your
4,000 dead Americans and your response… was to stop playing golf!
Not “gulf” - golf.

Excellent, excellent work from Keith! And great kiss & run work, kitties! I can't join the kiss & run brigage, but I'll be there in spirit and I will send Keith a tape roller to clean the cat fur off his suit.

Whoo! Whether I agree with you or not (and I mostly do), I love how you're laying your feelings right out there. The cat reaction to Keith Olbermann was quite priceless, too. :)
