Countdown Wearin' O' The Green Letters Live Blog: 3/17/09

As you might have guessed, Keith's still in LaLa Land prepping for his Real Time visit on Friday (3/20) with Bill Maher on HBO...and most of the lettering is in green in honor of St. Patrick's Day.

The Tie: Go on, guess. Wrong, it's rust with beige and brown stripes.

Number 5: Dear AIG: Give us our $165 million in "failure" bonuses or...drop dead. New York State Attorney General Andy Cuomo gave the facts to Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), and yes, since 80% is owned by you the public taxpayer of the USA, we should sue. Meanwhile, Sen. Chuck Graslie (R-IA) said that the executives should use harikari. Holy Cow! And when did Obama know and when did AIG tell about it? Last Thursday. For the answers to this and other pressing questions, we get the political side from Howard Fineman.

As for the money side, let's welcome Prof. Jonathon Turley of The George Washington University. Tax 91% of their money, but from the people who ran the ship onto the iceberg? Could be unconstitutional.

Number 4: Nice to know that Retired Dictator Adolph W. Bush XLIII took an overnight trip to Lance Storm's hometown of Calgary. Alberta. Canada. In secret more or less, keeping it so secret to avoid photographer where no media was allowed but nobody paying (CAN)$400 a head being allowed to even record or video to hear him his conversation. James Moore joins us to look further.

Oddball: In 1906, President Teddy Roosevelt invented the term "muckraker". And so, Rachael Maddow was on Letterman discussing the Big Giant Head of Mr. Olbermann...and we all thought it was Billo the Clown. And it's St. Pat's Day in Washington for the bowl of shamrocks, and the White House Fountain was died in Gatorade green.

Best Persons: 3 - Pauline Terry in Kent, England wrote a letter about her club was clean on stationary laced with cocaine. 2 - The new Metro police boss in London goes to suspect's home only to see he was arrested for another crime. 1 - At a German house of ill repute, you can pay less for all-you-can-whoopie as Bob Eubanks once coined over four decades ago.

Musical Segue: Donna Summer's "She Works Hard For The Money".

Number 3: Smear merchants week continues with redstate.com stating JournaList include Rachael, David Shuster and Keith are on an e-mail list. Markos Moulitsas of DailyKos.com, the number three "left wing smear merchant" according to Billo The Clown and ex-media journalist Bernie Goldberg. Party on, dudes!

Still Bushed!: 3 - Politico.com will hear that the Adolph XLIII Library will not use Iraq's botched war. 2 - And so did Afghanistan as well. It's a mistake. 1 - A confidential report said Gitmo was all torture all the time according to the International Red Cross.

Number 2 (Worst Person in the World)
Nominees and winner will be entered for Worst Person in the World of the Week on Friday...
Bronze - Brad Gellard was arrested for wife beating wearing a "I (HEART) MARRAGE" shirt. Oh, the Florida Irony.
Silver - Inanity says that we have surrendered on the War on Terror after Billo declared victory.
Gold - Comedian Boss Limbaugh criticized the Obama Administration for the AIG lynch mob, forgetting that the far right (and even Sen. Graslie) are also in the lynch mob, too. And this from your de facto leader of the Good Oldboysandgirls Party?

Number 1: First Coultergeist then Laura Ingram are called out. Guess who's calling them out? Sen. John McCain's eldest daughter Meghan. And she's gone all Whitney Houston-Tyra Banks "kiss my fat ass" on them. Joel McHale from The Soup takes time out from mocking the Kardashians being dead behind the eyes joining Keith on the set. Do we predict Olbermann making another appearance this week? Answer: Yes.

And so, keep the green flowing, we'll see you tomorrow.
