Countdown Live Blog 2/16/09

The Tie: Pink.

Number 5: Will someone tell the Grand Oldboys Party that the $787 billion stimulai will be signed tomorrow (2/17) in Denver. They're still stuck with their heads in the sand. Two GOP members said that they had a hand in a vote that they voted against. More in Worst Persons later. Over on CNN, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said that's not how you define change that you can believe in. Do you think there'll be a next time? Good fricking luck. And Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) loaded a video. No not THAT one. And Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) said the same parrotting of Sen. McCain. E.J. Dionne joins us to compare The Beatles to The Dave Clark Five, menaing President Obama's "Glad All Over."

There's $282 billion in tax cuts, plus lots of monies for everything but the kitchen sink. Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman says that it's still not enough... Try about $2 trillion over the next three years.

Number 4: Sen. Roland Burris (D-IL) may become the shortest serving senator since Pierre Salinger did so for the State of California in 1964, and he was better known as President Kennedy's press secratary. Burris talked to Blago's brother one month after the impeachment hearings and we are in the midst of a dicey situation. More info about when did he know about it and when did he forget it...blaming it on the media on crosshairs of what not, and they'll look into it, which brings Margaret Carlson back to anaylize.

Oddball: Happy 100th birthday Hugh Beaumont. Remember the most famous double entendre of all time? "Ward, are you being too hard on the Beaver." In Hong Kong, a woman wanted to get from Hong Kong to San francisco, and it's captured on a cell phone via the interwebs. Keith says he does worse in his office. And to India, it's the Rural Olympics because, well, MSNBC is the network of the Olympics.

Best Persons: 3 - Thurston's Bowling Alley was slated to reopen after refurbishment until all the balls were gone and sawed in half. 2 - Sheriff Leon Lott will not prosicute Michael Phelps at all. 1 - Remember Sarah Palin's favorite cosignment shop? It was called "Out of the Closet". There's a chain in California with the same name raising money for AIDS causes, and the shop's Alaskan owner has changed her store name to something Sen. McCain isn't going to have, "Second Run."

Musical Segue: Something about The Midas Touch.

Number 3: One month after leaving office, we learn that Adolph Bush XLIII was the seventh worst President of all time...and the third worst than We Would Like To Thank You Herbert Hoover and second worst than William Henry Harrision, who died one month after his inauguration. Speaking of Adolph...

Still Bushed!: 3 - W. is for Whitewash, and now Eliott Abrams says that Scotter Libby would have been pardoned. 2 - And still defending torture, an internal investigation is forthcoming. 1 - More Blackwater. No convictions, and now it's Xe. As in "Z". And Adolph will be renemaed Jan Stinkovan.

Number 2 (Worst Persons in the World, The President's Day Anti-Stimulus Special Edition)
Bronze - Betsy McCaughey got paid $11K in pharmicutical stocks along with a $55K salary and made tons of errors. So much for that debate plan, JFein? She's welcome on the buy ads.
Silver - Reps. Mica (R-FL) and Rep. Young (R-AK) took a yet cynical praise to the stim.
Gold - Comedian Rush Limbaugh does not understand Adobe Acrobat Reader PDFs and computers on the stim.

Number 1: Harry "Welcome to 'Le Show'" Shearer's here to show us through the new opening (in HD yet!) for his other gig, the sixth member of that TV family called The Simpsons, and our pal Seth MacFarlane gets a little dig in during last night's episde of Family Guy on the most unattractive male name: Keith.

I'm going over to watch WWE RAW. See you tomorrow.
