Countdown Live Blog: 3/19/09

Keith's time in Los Angeles continues.

The Tie: Navy and silver stripes.

Number 5: Last month, the Godd Oldboysandgirls Party were against AIG's money being spent, were mad as hell that President Obama went on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Sens. Jon Kyle (R-AZ) and Lamar Alexander (R-TN) were ticked off and were quoting Coach K from Dook as well, expect that he was misquoted by the vast right wing smear machine and respects those filling out their brackets (See "WorstBracketInTheWorld" at and the House voted more than 3-1 (with heavy GOP influence) on the 90% AIG Tax, and President Barry (after being introed by the Governator) promptly commented back "Really?" And it was Adolph XLIII's fingerprints all over theTARP and Rep. Latourette (R-OH) said that rearends are slowly closing on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue. Howard Fineman, your thoughts?

And House Minority Whip Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) pulled a flipflop on the AIG Tax bill, first going against, but voted for the 90% tax after being interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell, who just joined us for a 10 PM ET audition tape airing.

Number 4: As Left Wing Smear Merchants Week continues, we get to hear about Media Matters for America and how they accurately quote all the Far Right Wing Smear Merchants, and Eric Burns, MMFA's president joins us.

Oddball: In 1734, Col. Thomas McKeon was born. In Portage, Alaska, there were some really pissed off bisons, as vets were testing. In Apex, North Carolina, Augie the dog ate $400, and it went to poop.

Number 3: Good Ol' Mr. Wick himself, Craig Ferguson (who now faces Jimmy Fallon) joins Keith from New York to talk about Mr. Olbermann's appearence last night, and Obama's visit this evening.

Number 2 (Worst Persons in the World)
Don't forget the winner and the runnerups will also be eligible for Worst Person in the World of the Week tomorrow (3/20.)
Bronze - Random House for buying Adolph XLIII's manuscript for $7M. Look for the book in Juvenille fiction at, Borders or Barnes and Noble.
Silver - Lou Dobbs criticizes St. Pat's Day...and wants an American Day. Ever heard of the 4th of July?
Gold - Republican Senators John McCain (AZ), Lindsey Graham (SC) and Sam Brownback (KS) came down with "CRS syndrome" on the subject of a new Iraqi ambassador.

Number 1: When is enough enough? When the boss of Citigroup decides to spend $10 million of the TARP cash on redoing some offices of the executives. Keith's Special Comment video here.

Don't forget, a triple dip tomorrow: The regular live blog plus The Soup and Real Time with Bill Maher, too. It's Keith's March Madness!

  1. Tonight's Special Comment gave me shivers. Bust the Trust. I wrote the show. Keith was magnificent. Other high points of the show for me were Craig Ferguson, my fave latelateshow comic, and Howard Fineman and Lawrence O'Donnell, who tell it like it is. But that Comment will live in my memory forever. It said everything I've been thinking and feeling since September.
