The Marines want out of Iraq. They would rather be in Afghanistan. Keith Olbermann explains.

Oddball:
Virgin Airlines CEO repels down a Las Vegas building and splits his pants. Dropping a giant gourd on a school bus. Keith will explain that also. Then there’s the ugliest robot you’ve ever seen.

Best Persons: Another stupid robber hands a teller a robbery note, this time on his check stub. A dog named Thumper who saved his family’s life after their stupid cat almost killed them. Sorry cat lovers. Last, three New Jersey aldermann who link together terrorism and gumballs.

In this segment Keith interviews Howard Kurtz, who wrote a book called reality tv that looks at the failures of the news media leading up to the war in Iraq. In it he examines decisions made by corporate owners and wimpy reporters and anchors who were too afraid to report their doubts. Left out of this segment and glossed over is the fact that all these years afterwards, they still do it, often doing nothing more than reciting right wing talking points. Do you hear that John Roberts of CNN?

The usual celebrity Keeping Tabs and the Worst Persons segment is a shootout between Ann Cooter, John Gibson, and Glenn Beck.

In the final segment of tonight’s countdown, we are faced with an arm that has it’s own ear. Well, I guess everybody has to have something. Cyprus-born Stelios Arcadiou, known as Stelarc, says his extra ear, made of human cartilage, is an augmentation of the body’s form. To each his own. Edward Meyer from Ripley’s Believe it or Not joins Keith.
