Countdown Live Blog: 1/9/09

Only 11 days until Inauguration Day, 2,071 days since "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq, 23 days until Super Bowl XLIII, 36 days until pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training, and a modest 86 days until the first pitch of the 2009 Major League Baseball season starts at 8:10 PM US EDT in Philadelphia.

The Tie: tan, brown and cream stripes.

Number 5: On the one hand, Obama will not torture, and on the other, a counterterrorism expert who wants torture like stuff. President-Elect says there will be no torture and abide by the Geneva Conventions. Meanwhile, as unemployment at an high since September of 1993, Obama is pushing for the stimulus plan pushed forward. Paul Krugman has better ideas, and Obama may apply them. Craig Crawford deciphers the intel for us.

Will Obama look for war crimes on Adolph XLIII to appoint someone to look at this? In a FAQ section at the Obama Transition webpages (,) Veep-elect Biden says that it's up to the Justice Department, and we're welcoming John Dean to give us his intake.

Number 4: Blagogate. Impeached Governor of Illinois by a vote of 114-1, and the trial will start soon, and Blago does a song, does a dance, everything but the seltzer down the pants. Blago won't resign and in a ten-minute Dennis Miller rant without the f-bombs the former comic and blasts the House and Senate to fight for families, perscription drugs from Canada, preventive female healt care, and a teenager who had a liver transplant. Are they impeachable offenses? And not one comment about selling Obama's senate seat, and another poetry slam with "Anyone for Lord Alfred Tennyson?" On Burrisgate, the new senator will wait until Jesse White will sign a seperate paper...wasn't he the original Maytag Repairman?

Oddball: Anne Nixon Cooper was born 107 years ago today. bless you. has this contest. Buzz Bizinger takes on a baby Mangino. (UPDATE: Baby Mangino won.) In Germany, the weather is calling for party cloudy with a chance of kitty litter. And there's battery power on bikes in Beijing, and just like the Times Square New Years Eve 2009 sign!

Bushed!: 3 - "Daddy, where why were you in jail when the bailout happened?" Where did all the money go? 2 - Straight out of 1984 has been a new Neo-Con-Job. Iraq has never been worse. 1 - Torture drinks coffee and before passing out and is on a plane moving him from country to country...and tried and given bad eveidence and is jailed indefinately. Emanuel Seltzer kidnapped from London and in a KGB jail in Belarus. For diabetic medicines, and other ailments that they call illegal. Inspired by Adolph XLIII!

Number 3: The George W. Bush Library will have a debate center, and then in his last policy speech (in Philadelphia, no less) the White House of Adolph XLIII in W. Is For Whitewash, he pulls his Jerry Coleman/Ralph Kiner act reading off a note. Three thousand dropouts, lower test scores, and "No Child Left Behind" liberating Iraq, Iran and idiots...and Obama and those in Afganistan. Like The Gaza Strip, and Lebanon for Hezbalah, and liberating Madoff and others, and 2.5 million Americans from their jobs, the Dow down 20%, and mortages down 18%! January 20, 2009 at 12 noon US EST can't come soon enough.

Number 2 (Worst Person In The World)
Bronze - The Two students not to be late for school, steal a car.
Silver - Fredo is looking for private sector. And he wants to be Commissioner of Major League Baseball. Noooooooo!
Gold - Glenn Beck makes noise on Fixed Noise. Communist self-hate thing saying Democrats are commies. Check your sanity in at the door.

Number 1: When you are being interviewed by a right wing filmmaker, especially when the website for this film he's doing reads, right there on the screen at said website and you're Elizabeth Santamatina Fey's Evil Twin Sister...then you're spinning the media frenzy in your direction and blaming others. And did she really call Keith "EVIL" after seeing his picture? Oh, you betcha! Paul F. Tompkins joins us to LOL at this.

Well, that's all for this week. See you sometime this weekend...or Monday.
