Or so says Keith Olbermann. If the Bush Administration wishes to respond, might I suggest: "Countdown with Keith Olbermann is to benefit the Democratic Party."
Lets face it, 24 is a dramatic program about fighting terrorists. Incidentally, it is largely made by Democrats. Countdown is a news show. It is also largely made by Democrats, some of them strongly partisan like Olbermann. Which one bothers you more fiction or "non-fiction" made by political partisans?
The political overtones of "24" are also decidedly mixed as far as I can tell (since I don't watch the show). Yes the terrorists are all Islamic, but all the "good" politicians seem to be Democrats. David Palmer, Wayne Palmer, and even Jim Prescott seem to be portrayed as principled men. Sure they can be manipulated into making bad decisions, but they are properly guilt ridden afterwards. The Republicans, John Keeler and especially Charles Logan, don't have such good luck. Keeler seems to be a dirty dealer in his election campaign in Season 4 and Logan is revealed as both a weak president and a primary conspirator to a number of terrorist plots in Season 5.
