Countdown Live Blog: 4/1/09 (No April Fools Joke, Either)

The Tie: Black and silver stripes.

Number 5: Little Nicky Sarcozy, the President of France, wants to leave the G20, and meanwhile, President Obama talked with several leaders and even gave QEII an iPod, and then there were protests against British banquers (correct spelling) who wore jeans and t-shirts to avoid being attacked and then Obama met the British press, who make the stalker/producers at Fixed Noise look tame. Richard Wolffe, who has a funny accent, joins us.

Meanwhile, back in the States, a shocker. Attorney General Eric Holder will overturn former Sen. Ted Stevens' (R-AK) conviction on many charges, and will not proceed with a new trial. Reason? The Adolph XLIII Gestatpo, er, DOJ, forgot to allow many different evidence points. John Dean, explain why.

Number 4: Remember the Good Oldboysandgirls Party "budget" that had no numbers, nineteen pages and the same old shit but in a newer package? Well, here's the total of the same old same old: a $1.7 trillion defecit including tax cuts for the rich, elimination of some medical items and more Adolphian crap. Democrats on the other hand had said "we ain't the first to tell you so..." Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is in Washington to say "we told you so."

Oddball: Happy 36th birthday to a pair of regulars of Countdown, comedian Christan Finnegan and Rachael Maddow. Whatever happened to her? The Japanese kickass robot of the week breathes fire and looks too much like Casper the Friendly Ghost. In Newark, Ohio, after 15 beers you can be charged with drunk driving on a motorized barstool.

Number 3: Miss Wasalia 1984, the evil twin sister of Elizabeth Santamatina Fey, was supposed to speak at a GOP fundraiser in Washington in june, but backed out, and then brought in Newt Gingrich, this via her PAC. The ship is sinking, bail out! Joe the Non-Plumber on the other hand speaking in a rally didn't know about the Employee Free Choice Act. So, Chris Cillizza, where the hell is his Snuggie?

Number 2 (Worst Person in the World)
And a note, tonight's throika eligible for Friday's end-of-the-week bonus.
Bronze - Billo isn't the only one with stalker/producers, and he ambushed David Brinkley's son.
Silver - Billo says NBC is in trouble with him because he doesn't watch MSNBC but gets a clip file.
Gold - House Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) lies 140 times over on the costs of energy.

Number 1: Keith welcomes Ed Schultz to the family of MSNBC with an interview. That means 1600 Pensylvania Avenue moves to 5 PM ET as of Monday April 6, and Hardball goes live full time instead of replay 7 PM ET.

With that, I'll see you tomorrow.
