Countdown Live Blog: 12/4/08

There are 47 days left until the Inauguration of the 44th President of the United States, 2,044 days since we have had "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq, 21 days 'til Christmas, 58 days until Super Bowl XLIII and 72 days until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training.

The Tie: Rust colored with some spots.

Number 5: "We've made some mistakes." The Big Three needs $35 billion for a bailout. Congress says, akin to President Ford, Gerald to New York City Mayor Casey, Hugh in 1974 "Drop Dead"? The CEOs who took private chartered jets to DC last time, rode in hybrids. Now it's Russian Roulette according to the Senate Finance Committee. Okay, Howard Fineman, will General Motors go belly up? Only if they go to the Treasury...but gas guzzlers will continue to be made, much to the chagrin of both Michael Moore and the UAW.

Leo Donofrio sued to block Obama from the ballot in New Jersey, and will now have a snowball's chance in hell of being in front of the Supreme Court with it and disqualify him from winning the White House. Prof. Jonathon Turley says it's not 2000, boys and girls, there's two chances according to Hawai'i's Department of Records who showed a couple websites his birth certificate: Slim... And none. Hold on, Slim's packing up.

Number 4: What Do We Now about Iraq and torture? The three member committee in Iraq today OKd a new timeline that calls for a pullout in 2011. A dozen retired military types met with Obama, including Maj. Gen Paul Eaton, USA Ret., who joins Keith with rational answers. How did we get here? Well, it wasn't the work of Jack Bauer in 24!

Oddball: While Keith lit the 30 Rock Christmas (not holiday) tree in Studio 1A, CBS 2 was unlucky in Bryant Park. And we have robots pole dancing in London.

Best Persons: 3 - Shepard Smith of Fixed Noise and the War on Christmas. 2 - Barry O'Farrell introduces a bill that wants to make a law requiring breath tests before votes in Australia's parliment. 1 - Ralph Magazine in Australia was supposed to have freebies: 130K inflatable boobs...imported from China.

Music Segue: Floating In The Sea of figure that out.

Number 3: Tina Fey doppleganger Sarah Palin's wardrobe now $180K. From the GOP. Meanwhile, a Florida congressperson got a phone call from Obama...then she hung up, thinking it was a radio prank. It really was Barack Obama. Obama got punk'd, Ashton Kuchter. Hilary called her the day before to arrange for her call. And Ed Rendell talked about having no life to Janet Napolitano. She works 24/7, and like him, is having no life, except if counting being a pre-game and post-game anaylist for Comcast Sports Net Philadelphia is a life. Chris Colizza, come on down and explain it!

Bushed!: 3 - Global Warming according to the Energy Department: Greenhouse gasses up 10% from 2007. 2 - Gitmo officer resignee tells BBC says detainees were bad enough, but went to his priest and suggest resigned. 1 - Fredo slowly in the firing of attorneys issue supoenas to nobody. Looks like Gonzo picked a good year to give up the Bill of Rights.

Number 2: Worst Persons
Bronze - Sean Inanity lies about ratings. Yeah, Billo Jr. Set 'em straight, Keith. Inanity lost to Rachael Freakin' Maddow!
Silver - Aussie parliment member is blamed on God. Does He want a bailout?
Gold - A Massachuesetts trooper writes out a ticket to a pregnant woman under diress. In labor. In rush hour. Stay classy, Officer Giluchhio!

Number 1: Prop 8 The Musical starring Jack Black as Jesus, featuring Neil Patrick Harris, Allison Janney, Andy Richter, Margaret Cho, John C. Reilly, Maya Rudolph, Sarah Chalke, Kathy Najimy and a cast of famous and otherwise semi-famous celebrties makes its' world TV debut...and creator Marc Shaman and Black will join Keith tomorrow night (12/05)
