Countdown Live Blog: 5/1/09

The Tie: Pink.

Number 5: Judge David Souter will retire as Supreme Court justice at the end of this term, and President Obama will look for his replacement pronto. Someone with a sharp mind, understanding justice and identifying the struggles. Souter was nominated by George H. W. Bush back in 1991, so the book is wide open and would be seated in October. Ryan Lizza from The New Yorker is here to answer everything.

And back to torture. A former CIA agent was shocked to see one of those waterbaorded 83 times, but now two outsiders are being blamed for this according to And someone in the Senate said they didn't now, so Jonathon Alter, why do we now we have freelancers?

Number 4: Among the dozen senators voting against the 1.7 million homeowners...Sen. Arlen Spector (D-PA). That killed an amendment that would have spared them from having their houses foreclosed. Mrs. Bear, Arianna Huffington, joins us.

Oddball: Nine days since Inanity wats to be waterboarded. If you want to make a contribution higher than my one cent a second, doubled if he feared for his life, e-mail me at Akward promotion of the month: "Kiss The Pig" in suburban Chicago for a beauty school. Put the cliched lipstick on that pig, please. In Thousand Oaks, California, the Hollywood Wax Museum is going out of business and they're selling the statues like crazy.

Best Persons: 3 - A Alabama man kept a gun on his bed, so what happens when he tried to sleep with it? 2 - A Boston talk show host (Jay Severin) has been suspended by WTKK-FM for blaming the Mexicans for the swine flu. 1 - Teresa Tambunting took some gold home with her. About 500 pounds...from her jewel maker.

Musical Segue: I Take It One Piece At A Time...

Number 3: "Hello, I'm Steven Colbert. You know how this works. I play an idiot." That's what the host of The Colbert Report says to every guest backstage before every show. Was that the reason he was banned from the White House Correspondents' Dinner under Adolph XLIII? Students at The Ohio State University saw clips and a good number thought he was conserative. The study's author, Heather LaMarre, joins us.

Number 2 (Worst Persons in the World)
Bronze - Billo the Clown said that "Kelly McGillis is a lesbian". This is a pinhead.
Silver - Another Fixed Noise person, Major Garrett, blames the Obama Administration on why he didn't call on him, and said everyone else was a cheerleader for the White House.
Gold - Rep. Dr. Paul Brown (R-GA) turned swine flu into a racial epitath when the 23-month old child who died last week was termed as a illeagal alien.

Number 1: So Southern California in 2002, Boise State and Utah this year all wanted to play for the national championship in the Bowl Championship Series (or the BCS, but drop the "C" and see what it really is): Communism according to Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX), who dropped the "C" word in a hearingtoday that was well attended. Like, say, the Poinsettia Bowl. VH1's "Best Week Ever" host Paul F. Tompkins will try to answer that.

Have a great weekend, and I'll tell you more about WordGirl this weekend.
