Countdown Live Blog: 6/1/09

(Guest posted by JFein from Fire Andy Reid Now!)
Happy June everyone!

The Tie: Burnt orange.

Number 5: Dr. George Tiller was assassinated earlier today. As we all know, Tiller was a strong proponent of abortions and was a doctor who performed many of them, including notorious late-term abortions. And JC's favorite right-wing blogger, Michelle Malkin who happens to be from Philly (I can guarantee that you that this city, a strongly democratic city, does not claim her), is trying to tie Katherine Sebalius to Dr. Tiller and several other right wingers and pro-lifers consider Tiller a baby killer and are still considering him a mass murderer. Those remarks were made after his death. Richard Wolffe, who was supposed to talk about his new book today, Renegade, joins us to talk more about the insinuation of violence from the far right and pro lifers.

Andrew Sullivan from The Atlantic, has more about the response to Dr. Tiller's assassination.

Number 4: GM has filed for bankrupty and the government and subsequently the taxpayers now own 60% of GM. I own a car company! Yay! I am giddy! President Obama and the Federal Government will be hesitant to do anything with it, preferring to let GM take care of GM's problems. Michael Moore joins us. What does it say about Moore when you consider the fact that I am a fairly strong liberal Democrat and I could at best careless for this moron.

Oddball: CNN premiered on this date. And a deer did not jump over the moon, but rather over the hood of a car. We've got a space shuttle on a airplane. A 15-foot fish is asleep on the surface and apparently it's an earthquake predictor. Who knew?

Number 3: Lt. General Ricardo Sanchez is on to tell us more about talk about torture, claiming that we need to know the truth about what happened or else the past is doomed to happen again. And after all of the talk of the GOP telling us to listen to the generals, how much do you want to bet that they will denounce him and say don't listen to him because he is against torture? Scott McClellan and Mancow know the feeling. And Lt. Gen. Sanchez believes there should be prosecution.

Number 2 (Worst Persons In The World)
Bronze - William Kristol is suggesting a few air strikes on North Korea.
Silver - Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) thinks that he has better things to do than to be the "speech police" for the people in the appointment of Sotomayor.
Gold - Comedian Boss Limbaugh wants to appoint David Duke to SCOTUS in reponse to President Obama's Sotomayor, but Duke now claims P\/\/N3RSHIP of Limbaugh.

Number 1: Is Fixed Noise partly responsible for inciting the assassination of Dr. Tiller? Video is below.

JC will be back tomorrow. Thanks for joining me and see you next time!
