As JFein pointed out last night, Keith's mom passed away, and so out of respect (and the fact that we took my nephew to Golden Corral for dinner for having straight A's on his report card, and I was stuffed and slept away), no live blog. However, I am back and thank JFein for the video.
The Tie: Black, blue and silver stripes.
Number 5: President Obama was so much against Adolph XLIII, that was then. Now, The DoJ claims that they must do wiretapping, and it must be expanded. See Section 221 (c)(1) for more information, and the Adolph XLIII expansion of the Patriot Act. Howard Fineman discusses the ramifacations of it all, and Prof. Jonathon Turley gives us the legal stuff.
Number 4: President Obama made a surprise visit to Iraq today. He saluted the 600 troops, including Vice president Biden's son, Beau at one of Saddam Hussein's old palaces at Camp Victory. He also met with the Iraqi PM and awarded ten Medals of Freedom. Oh, he was also in Istanbul (not Constananoble or Byzanthium) for a town meeting before a new poll showing 66% approval. Steve Clemons from TheWashingtonNote.com is here to give us his insight.
Oddball: In 1934, Sir Ian Richardson was born. General Motors uses that bailout money to create a dual passenger Segue. In Essex, England, 100 folks piled into a diving site to watch the world's game.
Number 3: The Grand Obstruction Party has now turned to Billo stalker/producer tactics. Led by Minority Whip Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), they now attack the 42 freshmen Democrats on the floor. When a political party has to turn to a "journalist" like Bill O'Reilly for ideas, they've run out of ideas. Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (D-OH) was "attacked" by the aptly-named Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) on the floor about AIG while Ms. Kilroy was talking about volunteerism. Also, he has his cronies read scripts which EPIC FAILED and made them P\/\/N3D on the YouTube. Ms. Kilroy joins us.
Number 2 (Worst Person in the World)
Nominees eligible to join other daily winners in Friday's week ending fun...
Bronze - Inanity opened his dillusion saying Obama apologized for the War on Terror... WRONG!
Silver - A T-shirt maker made "Hitler made good speeches too" selling them at an NRA-sponsored event.
Gold - Glenn Beck had a hysterical stupidity for the murder of three Pittsburgh pokliceman on a non-existant Obama gun ban.
Number 1: As if we need to be cheered up, The Sixth Simpson (much like Pete Best as The Fifth Beatle) Harry ("Hello! Welcome to Le Show!") Shearer has brought Phillies fan Christopher Guest and Michael McKean from his repretory film company to the program and sing a song tonight as members of The Folksmen and Spinal Tap in an acoustic style.
We'll see you tomorrow...
