Countdown Live Blog: 3/31/09

The Tie: Blue shadow stripes. Spring collection much?

Number 5:
President Obama went to Europe for the G20, and the Good Oldboysandgirls Party began bashing just as a new ABC News/Washington Post poll showing two-third of the country loves how Obama is running the country. And Comedian Boss Limbaugh is again hoping he fails, while over at Fixed Noise, former beauty queen Gretchen Carlson, news actor Bill Hemmer and Inanity are echoing House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) looking out for the CEOs. And so Howard Fineman agrees with that.

Meanwhile, Steve Clemons from TheWashingtonNote.com joins us to recap the first day of the first trip to Europe of the 44th Presidentof the United States.

Number 4: Seymour Hersh joins us to lay the smack down on Ayatollah Dickcheney's asasination chain of command and may have even added that in an NPR interview on stay-behind people still working at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Still Bushed!: 3 - Smoke the terrorists out, but help them out in Pakistan. 2 - An arbitrator made people "volunteer" at the EEOC. Nice going, pal. 1 - Post 9/11 spread freedom and Afghanistan ramrodded shieah family law. Welcome to the 15th Century.

Number 3: A rally will be held by the GOP manana for their budget plan tomorrow. April Fools Day. They also will give you a free trip on OCD Air baggage class to Boguslovenia as well as a Statointellicator and a Transrebounder. And this against Obama's own plan, which looks like it will be passed very soon. House Majority Whip Rep James Clyburn (D-SC) phones this one in (all credit goes to phone credits) for an interview.

Number 2 (Worst Persons in the World)

Tonight's winners eligible for the end of the week honors Friday...
Bronze - They believe to adopt the elimination of the Singapore drug plan...hangings and all - no, not Obama and someone else. Billo the Clown and Newt Gingrich.
Silver - And Billo wants to boycott Spain and UPS...Spanish response: NUTS. UPS' response: You saw what he did to France. BTW, Keith gave $25K to the It Happened to Alexa Foundation.
Gold - Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) goes back 65 million years and thinks carbon and carbon monoxide are the same. Not that there's anything wrong with that, mind you...

Number 1: So, how do you solve the crisis in Detroit with the Chrysler and General Motors mess? Call in Discovery's Mythbusters, Jamie Heineman and Adam Savage are in a first for them, in Studio 1A's second floor.

I'll see you tomorrow...and that's no April Fool.


  1. Good show. It made my day, which was basically full of really bad news. I have some pretty bad news to share with you. I had a CAT scan done yesterday of the nodules in my neck that have been plaguing me for some time, and the results that came back were not good. It appears to be a metastatic adenopathy, and they have found evidences of what they think are cancers in the lung, chest, neck and breast. I go for biopsy on Friday at 3 to see what kind of cancer this is, and how fast it is spreading. The doctor is looking at options to help me feel more comfortable and I will know more next week. I will keep you all posted as to what they advise.
    This blog and Keith mean a lot to me. I just want you to know that and to say thanks. No matter what this treatment (if any) is going to entail, right now I am of sound mind, and I gotta say you guys are awesome.

  2. First of all, it's nice of you for beibng here and making comments. Second, I hope this will not spread. We'll be praying for you.
