For years, Keith Olbermann ended his "Countdown" broadcasts by announcing the date and stating how many days it had been since President George W. Bush declared "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq. Earlier this year, he transitioned to an ending counting how many days it had been since the oil spill began in the Gulf of Mexico.
And after a period with no closing line, Olbermann debuted a new count on "Countdown" Wednesday, the day after the Republicans won control of the House and Rep. John Boehner became the presumptive future Speaker of the House.
"That's November 3rd, one day since Republicans took control of the house," Olbermann said. "Mr. Boehner, where are the jobs? I'm Keith Olbermann, good night and good luck."
