Countdown Live Blog: 2/5/09

In case you were wondering whay there were no live blogs the last two nights, Keith needed some recovery time after:

A. That Super Bowl thing...
B. Adjusting to deep freeze tempratures in New York City, along with a few inches of snow...
C. It was in his contract.

The Tie: Purple.

Number 5: "The time for talk is over. The time for action is now." But the GOP is still in a fillibuster mode on the stimuli moves. And President Obama took to The Washington Post Op-Ed pages and the Department of Energy to make his point. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says that Obama is the problem, but Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has enough votes top kill any fillibuster. Howard Fineman, one year passed from Super Tuesday, tells us the Republicans are winning the spin war. No-spin zone my ass.

E.J. Dionne from the Post was dropped from today's issue by Mr. Obama and joins Keith to see how the Republicans are winning the battle but losing the war.

Number 4: Ashley Judd, actress, University of Kentucky sports fan and Mrs. Dario Franchitti challenging Miss Wasallia 1984, Governor of the State of Alaska, Comedian Rush Limbaugh's de facto Republican Party leader and Elizabeth Santamatina Fey's Evil Doppleganger on wolf hunts. Defender of Wildlife's ads have injected her bounties on dead wolves. Clarence Paige fron The Chicago Tribune plays the game on SarahPAC and others.

Oddball: Ben Blank passsed away Tuesday. Back to Tampa for a 50-yard dash between Dan patrick and Jerome Bettis, and Dan had a nine-yard head start. Jerome's not gonna...get him. And Down Under, a eucylipcus tree was being chopped down, and the lumberjack lost his pants. No, I am not making it up.

Still Bushed!: 3 - The Murdoch Street Journal was forced by Adolph XLIII to make Bank of America buy Merrill Lynch...or else! 2 - A Federal grand jury is looking at many people including an former senator and Bush aides. Criminal charges much? 1 - President Obama should wear suit and ties according to a former Bush aide. He went and got cheeburgers ("No Coke, Pepsi.") under Bush.

Number 3: The tapes from the landing of US Airways Flight 1549 three weeks ago were released. Since then, Capt. Charles Sullyburger has had a small speech, a 38-word sentance in a newspaper story and even a brief interview (if you can call that an interview) with Keith at the Super Bowl, and the book he borrowed from a library will have the fees waived because it was in his luggage and lost in the Hudson River.

Number 2 (Worst Person in the World)
Bronze - Billo blew up with The New York Times trying to blow him up and the two-party system, and Turdblossom was mentioned.
Silver - Ex-jounalist Bernie Goldberg attacked the Times without a baseball bat, which he would have used vigalnte style.
Gold - Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) thinks the Republicans are akin to the Taliban. Carpet bombing Capital Hill much, sir?

Number 1:
A Special Comment on former Vice President Herr Goebles Dick Cheney's terrorism warnings which have gotten tired now that he's out of office. The video is right here.

I'll see you tomorrow.

  1. Cheney doubling for Vincent Price reciting Poe? I swear, it's where he learned the Art of Horror. Watching bad grade B movies as a child. KO handled it with just the right amount of positive parentalism, I thought. What else do you do with a playground bully? And as to Bill-o's assertion that his destruction was equivalent to striking at the roots and foundations of the two party system, I have to admit I'd never thought of it that way, but it's a damned good idea. Include Glenn Beck and you have the perfect triple play. And I'm sending off $19.95 to Pete Sessions for my burkha. So help me, this 111th Congress is a complete joke -- especially the remaining Republicans. Don't get me started on John McCain. Thanks to him I had a shingles outbreak right before the election, the postherpetic neuralgia & it's intense pain I am still suffering. Doesn't he get that he LOST?
