Countdown Live Blog: 4/16/09

The Tie: Red, gold and navy stripes.

Number 5: The Adolph XLIII Gestapo CIA memos were released today, and President Obama will not prosecute anyone who followed orders, giving them immuninity. However, he will reverse those proceedures immeadiately. Those are the Rosetta Stone/Dead Sea Scrolls of torture. Sleep deprevation, aracnaphobia and yes, waterboarding were all mentioned. Howard Fineman explains this, and John Dean clears up the legal stuff.

Number 4: Keith's Special Comment on the release of the memos. Video from JFein above.

Number 3: Wouldn't you know it, we now have the story by way of The New York Times of more spying via attempts of wiretaps of a Congressman of all people! And without a warrant, too! James Risen tells all.

Number 2: On the DATA (Day After Teabagging America), we finally get the real results of the rallies by the far right wing kooks, tens of thousands to be exact, and it was smaller than expected for a Fixed Noise grassroots production. And in Pensicola, Florida, one protester told the truth. P\/\/NAG3 to the nth degree. So Janeane Garofalo, taking a time out from 24, what do you say, racist much?

Number 1: In case you didn't hear about it, or cought the post below this, John Madden has retired. Cris Collinsworth, the non-twin brother of Mr. Olbermann, will join Alfalfa in the booth starting in August. Keith's other boss, NBC Olympics/Sports chairman Dick Ebersol joins us.

Anywho, we'll see you tomorrow night.


  1. Sorry, but the teabagging protests were not racist. It was purely, 100% about policy.

  2. There were some that were calling it racist...
