Countdown Live Blog: 6/18/09

The Tie: Pink.

Number 5: One million protesters are mourning in Tehran (and even state-run TV in Iran admits to the fact of one million in Khomani Plaza) and the president admits to that. And meanwhile, in Washington, Robert Gibbs told the daily media briefing that he shares how the story is being handled, except for the Good oldboysandgirls Party. See last night's third place WPitW for more information. Richard Engel and Richard Wolffe are seperately seen for both sides - human and political - in this mess.

Number 4: There's been a Adolph XLIII sighting about the pet goat and breaking the silence on President Obama. This is change he didn't believe in and blasting his own legacy. Chris Hayes of The Nation, what corner has Adolph XLIII painted himself into?

Oddball: In 1178, the Canterbury Tale of an asteroid was exploded between earth and the moon. Security cam footage showed a man in drag of her son channeling in on Social Security checks. So there was this nettle eating contest in Dorsett, England. They say it tastes like chicken...

Best Persons: 3 - Dusty Rhodes passed away today. Not the wrestler, the Giants pinch-hitter from the 1954 World Series. 2 - Those insulting in a Spanish bar can win free drinks. 1 - Eddie Lazcano was arrested because of his hair. It was him or Ronald McDonald.

Musical Segue: You Deserve A Break Today! Enjoy the medley of old McDonald's ads chosen for your pleasure.

Number 3: Comedian Boss Limbaugh is heading toward the stop sign by cmlaining that SoniaSotomayor is to be compared to a cleaning lady, and is not Steven Colbert's whipping boy about something called a society for women, and she's ahead of other candidates. Mellissa Harris-Lacewell joins us in studio to anaylize.

Number 2 (Worst Person in the World)

Bronze - Diane Black, a state representative from Tennessee and strongly worded asked vis state government to stop sending racist stuff, but didn't sack her.
Silver - Turdblossom on Fixed Noise bitched about ABC's extensive use of The White House. Gee, didn't Fixed Noise do so?
Gold - Charlie Krauthammer bitched about the only voice of opposition at Fixed Noise. Twisted logic 101.

Number 1 (The Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!? Moment): A medley reenactment (complete with bad drag) of a Capital representative asking to be referred as Elizabeth, not Liz. And a namesake who was a doctor in Augusta, Georgia. Here's your video proof reenactment:

As for me, the weekend starts for me at 9 PM EDT tomorrow after our get together.


  1. Off-topic, but what a day of soccer. The U.S. completely crapped the bed like never before (although the 06 WC team might disagree with that.....and the team that played against Costa Rica 2 weeks ago) and then that thriller between Egypt and Italy, complete with one of the most hilarious moments I've ever seen in a soccer game.

  2. Anything tonight on that Michigan man that is at the top of the headlines on

  3. the blue this???????

  4. That was the reenactment in question, now up on the blog for all to see.

  5. I'm pretty sure that was the wierdest segment I have ever seen on Countdown......
