BIDEN WINS DEBT DEAL; McCARTHY WRITES CAMPAIGN AD FOR HIM - 5.29.23
EPISODE 212: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN
A-Block (1:43 ) SPECIAL COMMENT: I’d like to congratulate Joe Biden on kicking the asses of Kevin McCarthy and Donald Trump in the debt ceiling deal. More over, I'd like to thank Speaker McCarthy for writing President Biden’s first re-election campaign ad for him.
Reporter: “Mr. Speaker, How would you describe your interactions with Biden during negotiations?”
McCarthy: “Very professional, very smart. Very tough at the same time.”
Voice Over (Announcer): “President Biden. Even the Republicans think he’s very professional, very smart, very tough at the same time!”
Voice Over (Biden): “I’m Joe Biden and I approve this message because you heard him: I’m very professional, very smart, very tough at the same time.”
Voice Over (Announcer): “Paid For By Biden-Harris 2024 and the Committee to Make Trump Eat Spit.”
B-Block (11:52 ) Hey, it's Memorial Day. I'm OFF. Can't you TELL? Rather than re-purpose previous podcast components, here's stuff you'll either want to listen to, or not want any part of. Cool. It's your day off too. These are old newscasts and sportscasts and we start with one I had completely forgotten: a commentary for the United States Radio Network in 1985 in which I bash a football team owner named Donald Trump. And then three newscasts when New York radio station WNEW ran out of newscasters and had to have their 21-year old backup sports guy do drive time!
C-Block (27:53 ) An assortment, beginning fittingly with Memorial Day 1987 when I filled in for Brent Musburger on CBS Radio. Also in here, the day George Steinbrenner fired managers for the second time in the same year in 1982 (on WNEW) and a series of college broadcasts from WVBR at Cornell from 1979.
