Countdown Live Blog: 4/15/09. Teabags Much?

The Tie: Blue.

Number 5: Yes, it was Tax Day, it was Tea Bag Day, it was the anniversary of the asassination of Abraham Lincoln, and they forgot to dump one million of them teabags at Lafayette Park across from The White House, but it was changed was to an office building, and Fixed Noise made numbers up doubling actual numbers in what is known as Fake Fighting as papering the house claiming that they were fair and balanced. (Wanna bet?) Back in the reality, President Obama wants to simplify the Tax Code post haste. Or at least by the end of the year. Scatalogical humor welcome. Only 300 in Philadelphia, so Howard Fineman how was the rally in Louvul?

Number 4: The tourism slogan is "Texas. It's like a whole 'nother country." On Tea Bag Day, Gov. Rick Perry (R) wants to succeede from the Union. That was a bad idea in 1861 IIRC. This after several people screamed "seceede!" at one of those rallies (the one attended by none other than Professor Harold Hill at The Alamo?) This after Perry threatened to not accept those stimulai monies. And getting 88 cents out of every dollar that goes to Washington. So James Moore, you of, do you think it'll work?

Oddball: Jack Roosevelt Robinson debuted as the Brooklyn Dodgers' first baseman on this date in 1947, and today, every player, coach and manager in uniform is wearing his number. Except for the Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals, whose game was rained out. Over in Wales, sheep heards are getting digital and LED vests too. And in Georgia, don't bring a knife to a small ladder party hosted by Captain CAVE-MAN!

Still Bushed!: 3 - Obama leans toward the torture according to The Murdoch Street Journal. Care to demonstrate on John Yoo? 2 - Afghan women were protesting and were stoned. 1 - How much do we lose taxes to the Cayman Islands? $800 billion. Let's just go out and buy them.

Number 3: Did ashamed to have been born in Philadelphia Michele Malagang Malkin, Inanity and others get the Department of Homeland Security notice about far right extremeists being bigger terrorists than Al-Qaeda? The words "left wing" were not mentioned to anyone else. Arianna Huffington, voice of Mrs. Bear on The Cleveland Show, your thoughts?

Number 2 (Worst Person in the World)
Bronze - Billo can't still get over the Spanish Inquistion of Adolph XLIII's cronies. Cue the Obama video.
Silver - Eric Telford, sponsor of the Tea Bagging rallies, held a contest. $250 for ideas, lame as they might be.
Gold - Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) has an idea for the solution for the economic crisis: go to your ATM and take out all your money and run for the hills!

Number 1: So Comedian Boss Limbaugh says President Obama ordered the shooting and killing of three Solmalian pirates holding Captain Richard Phillips hostage...and then says they were black Muslim teenagers. Yes, he's played the race and religous cards at the same time, calling them Merchant Marines. And another freighter was nearly hijacked, and Secratary of State Hilary Clinton will provide more protection. Chris Hayes of The Nation, how angry are you?

We'll be back tomorrow, provided the Indians-Yankees game at the new Yankee Stadium in the boogie down does not go thirty innings or something.
