Countdown Live Blog: 12/5/08

There's 46 days until Inauguration Day, 2,045 days since "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq, 20 days until Christmas, 57 days until Super Bowl XLIII, 71 days until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training and a mere several hours since O.J. Simpson was sent up the river in Nevada, and Billo The Clown announced he's ending his radio show in 2009.

Marc Shaiman, John C. Reilly and Jack Black are the special guests tonight to discuss Prop 8: The Musical.

The Tie: Brown, tan and beige stripes.

Number 5: W. says we're in a recession...Carl Lewis says "Uh-oh!" Unemployment is up 2/10th of a percent, the highest since 10/93, and Jonathon Alter is in studio tonight to tell us that the rest of the $700 billion bailout needs to be put out now. UPDATE: The Democrats have agreed in principle to a bailout of GM, Chrysler and Ford.

And What Do We Do Now? Robert Reich joins up as Bush XLIII confessed to the "R" word. And it could be a "D" word from Herbert Hoover. To avoid that, the states are helping with mega infrastructure projects. And we must have $2 from each of the Big Three and the UAW with an extra $1 from each of us.

Number 4: Lame Duck W. as in Whitewash says that failure raised chaos because we invaded Iraq, and there was a nucelar threat from Iran, and Al-Quida is still around. And then this: Iraq was longer and costly, and Chris Hayes from The Nation visits again, keeping Josef Gobels Vice President Cheney far away. In a soundproof bunker. In an undisclosed location.

Oddball: On this day in the year 1950, Paul Harvey began his newscast. And now you know...the rest of the story. An ice artist did sculpting until...Carl Lewis "Uh-oh!" In Berlin, baby polar bear Knut could be evicted because he's grown up.

Best Persons: 3 - Judge Jackie Glass about O. J.'s arrogance on video! 2 - Tina Fey evil twin sister Sarah Palin's latest makeup and hairstylist costs? $110K 1 - The Treasury Department still has their holiday party next week...after the Cash Room. *facepalm* You'd think they'd join Disney, NewsCorpse and GE in cancelling the party.

Musical Segue: Couldn't make it out.

Number 3: Senator Caroline Kennedy, Democrat from New York State? Stay tuned, according to the governor's office. Al Franken could be Minnesota Senator if they find the missing ballots. Meanwhile, Norm Coleman still leads by almost 700.

Bushed!: 3 - Some holiday party at a consultant's office. Don't give up the day job. 2 - Mary Beth Buchannan, former Fed Attorney in Pittsburgh won't quit. 1 - Bill Kristol and his buddy Turdblossom want a round up of those who are getting deportation. Adolph XLIII was kicking out a Muslim.

Number 2: Worst Persons in the World
Bronze - Peggy Noonan says a bunch of holiday party goers said Adolph XLIII kept us safe. And who was president 9/11/2001.
Silver - Billo the clown's rant on Tuesday, and some guy in Seattle came back with the athiest sign from Olympia. Also, Billo ends his radio show, and will focus on the TV show. Thanks for keeping us competitive.
Gold -
Salem, Mass. DHS boss hires illegal ailens to clean her house. When she's supposed to keep them out.

Number 1: Last night, Countdown debuted on TV the interwebs sensation Prop 8: The Musical. Tonight, we get a visit from Marc Shaiman, John C. Reilly (Will Ferrell's sidekick) and Jack Black about the story behind the "viral picket sign".

That's it for me, have a great weekend, and I'll be here Sunday (12/7) to liveblog Football Night in America for you.
