Keith Olbermann makes 007 pun

Keith Olbermann, at the start of his nightly MSNBC program, Countdown With Keith Olbermann, teased a segment on Senator Arlen Specter’s bid to win the Pennsylvania Democratic primary after switching political parties last year. Specter, 80, faces a tough race on May 18 against Joe Sestak.

Olbermann’s tease? “Only James Bond did a better job of beating Specter!”

Of course, Ernst Stavro Blofeld’s organization spelled it SPECTRE, but who needs details when making a 007 joke?

Robert Davi’s latest job: voiceover in a political ad

Licence to Kill may not be the most popular James Bond movie but actor Robert Davi made a strong impression as its villain, Franz Sanchez. Here’s his latest “starring” role, that of a narrator in a California political commercial:

Meanwhile, Keith Olbermann had a “quick comment” on his MSNBC show on Feb. 5, mentioning Davi (suggesting the writers of the ad should have given him easier lines than “financial conservatives in name only”). You can check that out by CLICKING HERE. After watching a commercial, there will be a menu of videos from the show. The segment about the commercial should be easy to spot (saying how the ad was baaad or words to that effect).

Goldfinger’s 45th anniversary: even Keith Olbermann gets into the act

Even Countdown With Keith Olbermann will remind you this is the 45th anniversary of Goldfinger.

One segment of the MSNBC news/commentary show is the “World’s Best Persons,” a kind of sequel to the program’s “World’s Worst Persons” segment. Often, the “Best Persons” segment is actually an opportunity for Olbermann to criticize.

On the Oct. 8 program, one of the “Best Persons” was Fox News commentator Glenn Beck. As described in the segment, Beck was criticizing the Obama administration’s financial policies while saying people should buy gold. Olbermann said that gold sellers buy spots on Beck’s show, suggesting this may be a conflict of interest. As this unfolded, the title song from Goldfinger could be heard.
