‘Countdown’ with Keith Olbermann

Keith Olbermann 
February 18, 2009

Bach in the Saddle:  We already knew some Republicans are taking credit in their home districts for the stimulus money coming their way — even though they voted against it. But in our third story tonight, that’s almost laudable compared to what other Congressional Republicans are saying about the stim. Basically, it’s the American version of the Russian Revolution. Let me warn you: You are going to hear excerpts from what may be the craziest interview in American political history. And if I use the terms “craziest” … “Republican” … and Congress … Who else could I be talking about other than Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann. …


Bachmann strikes (out) again (MSNBC, Feb. 18, 2009) — Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., took a new stand against President Barack Obama when she claimed the stimulus bill was just a payoff for those who supported him throughout the election. The Nation’s Chris Hayes discusses. (07:14) 

Money quote

Olbermann: “Is she (a) dumb, (b) crazy, or perhaps (c) the perpetrator of the most brilliantly disguised, brilliant political strategy in world history?”
