Countdown Live Blog: 2/23/09

The Tie: Navy and silver stripes.

Apologies for an early outage from a failing browser.

Number 5: Once again, the birth certificate was brought up again by a member of the Good Oldboysandgirls Party, this time Sen. Charlie Sessoms (R-AL). And again, those republican Governors in Louisiana and South Carolina will reject monies from the stim, meaning the resident of their states will have long memories come their next election, and now the Governator and Gov. Jennifer Grandholm (D-MI) say they may ask for that rejected monies. So Richard Wolffe, can you figure out the puzzle?

And at Capital Hill, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schwartz (D-FL) says that it's a case of those who fail history doomed to repeat it within the GOP. They know nuttink, they zee nuttink and they do nuttink.

Number 4:
So Arrianna Huffington's here to explain what the difference is between the Adolph XLIII administration dictatorship and Obama's kinder, gentler (to a point) administration, but somehow, there's a difference between the two.

Oddball: In 1898 Emile Zola had a letter printed and was cleared of everything. Tour of California running in sumo suits, Borat in a mankini thong (yeeech!) and a guy with a deer antler helmet. A ten point schmuck. Atta boy, Keith! Meanwhile, iIn St. Moritz, Switzerland, it's thoroughbreds on ice.

Best Persons: 3 - Brianna Bonds came up with a new hairstyle with a migrane from her hairpiece. 2 - Buffalo counter demostrators annual protests of gay people who died in last week's plane crash drowning them out. 1 - Will Smith said the old Brian Collins interweb neme "Boom goes the dynamite". He's now a reporter in Waco, Texas.

Musical Segue:
Boom boom bottle boom?

Number 3:
And for that New York Post cartoon comparing the killed monkey to President Obama, Julian Bond, chairman of the NAACP joins us calling it an invitation to an asassination, and firing back. Tomorrow (2/24), Rev. Al Sharpton will protest at New York's City Hall and has started an online petition to revoke NewsCorpse's exemption to own multiple TV stations and newspapers in New York City (and to an extent, Boston).

Still Bushed!:
3 - What didn't happen at the House Judiciary Committee about Turdblossom's testimony. 2 - Ari Fleischer still lies about WMDs. 1 - Adolph's nephew, George P. Bush angers Gov. Charlie Crist (R-FL) about accepting stimulai cash. Bushed: The Next Generation?

Number 2 (Worst Person in the World)
Bronze - Fred Barnes on Bristol Fey Evil doppelganger saying abstance is realistic. Nice work, sparky.
Silver - Chris Wallace said that Eric Holder was in by the skin of his teeth. That would be a landslide.
Gold - Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wants to charge more to small businesses in taxes. But it's 2% of them...

Number 1:
I didn't bother to watch the Oscars last night because I was busy doing something else more relevant. What I missed was an upset by Sean Penn for his performance in Milk over heavily favored Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler (Chris Irvine Jericho, your thoughts?) and in his acceptance speech sending a message for those who voted against Prop 8, and Philippe Petit (he of walking a tightrope on the twin towers of the World Trade Center) balancing Oscar on his chin. Devin Gordon from Newsweek is here to look at it.

Join us tomorrow for everything but the kitchen sink with pre-speech and post-speech double live blogging!
