Countdown Live Blog: 6/8/09

The Tie: Silver, blue and black stripes.

Number 5: Tina Fey's Evil Twin Sister was at the Rays-Yankees game yesterday (6/7) and quoted Newt Gingrich. More on Newt later. She's at the Good Oldboysandgirls Party congressional fundraising event in the game of speaker at the dias of said fundraiser. No comments from Rich Lowry. We do get some from Richard Wolffe.

So who's the leader of the party now, but Palin quoted Gingrich (and Craig Shirley) at another event last week. And brought about the Ronald Reagan change from "Detente" to "Evil Empire", a line used later by Adolph XLIII. Lawrence O'Donnell is here to comment.

Number 4: Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) tweeted about President Obama's health plans after the latter's speech on YouTube. Welcome to the new milennium, Dr. Howard Dean.

Oddball: Eddie Gaedel (#1/8) was born on this day. Bret Michaels' Rock Of Love Bus tour came to The Tonys along with Poison who performed and got conked by a giant sign.

And Roger Federer was distracted by a nutcase. We also have a white bengal tiger in a German Zoo. Sigfried and Roy had no comment.

Best Persons: 3 - The Pirate Party won a seat in the Euro Parlement. Arrrr! 2 - Ryan Neaus of hazelton was caught speeding after someone who stole his maryjane. 1 - A woman had bought a lawsuit against Pepsi's Quaker Oats division that there were no real crunch berries in Cap'n Crunch Crunch Berries... WHAT... THE...?!?

Musical Segue: Crunch berries!

Number 3: SCOTUS nominee Sonia Sotomayor tripped and broke her ankle at LaGuardia racing to catch a flight to Washington today. She also got a endorsement from former First Lady Eva Braun, and Gingrich went back to the racist card again.

Still Bushed!: 3 - More money in profits from KBR. 2 - Indian news agency got $7M from Adolph XLIII instead ordering airplanes. 1 - One of the Gitmo many was turned over after seven years didn't ask about a plot, but told all about something else.

Number 2 (Worst Person in the World)
Bronze - Gov. Tim Palenti (R-MN) evoked the Eminem/Sasha Baron Cohen act at the MTV Movie Awards.
Silver - A new charity event as a carry-your-gun to church event in Louisville.
Gold - Rep. Pete Hostrka (R-MI) calims in a secret report that enhanced interrigation techniques waterbording works. When others say it so, they go to jail; when he says to it makes him a hypocrite.

Number 1: The man who killed Dr. George Tiller, Scott Roeder, says that there are others that are out there that will do what he did last weekeend. Why isn't he being waterboarded? Denise O'Donnell, deputy pubic safety secratary for the State of New York, answers those questions.

I'm off to RAW. See you tomorrow.


  1. I'm nervous JC. The Marlins are no-hitting the Giants and are going into the sixth inning. And with the Giants hitting, a no-hitter is possible.

    /Hope this will jinx them
    /Hopeful you will say something to jimx the Marlins
