Countdown Live Blog: 8/17/09

The Tie: Silver, pink and light yellow

Number 5: All "Public Option" all the time on Health Care according to President Obama may be dead soon. Kathleen Suvillas, the Secretary of Health and Human Services told about public co-op, as from Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY, unrelated to Michael Weinersavage) could lose 100 Democratic votes according to Linda Douglas, the White House's Health person. Veterans' health coverage will not change according to Obama. It's an expansion. Howard Fineman, anything to add?

Meanwhile, the guy who wrote the bill, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) will vote against the program he helped build if he can't get anyone from the Good Oldboysandgirls Party to go along with this. Lawrence O'Donnell, what now?

Number 4: Rachael Maddow may have broken the first rule to tell Dick Armey about political views on the mess in health care. Armey - who should change his last name to "Head" on trying to cut Medicare - tried to shout Maddow down. Ronald Reagan pointed this whole Medicare care in 1961. Well Arianna "Mama Bear" Huffington, what do you say about it?

Oddball: In NYC in 1888, Edward Wooley was born and was ever the guy. Turtle Lake, Wisconsin "Crash for Clunkers" was held. And two yellow school buses were wrecked. And that squirrel picture explained the picture, and showed several before pictures.

Best Persons: 3 - Dana Perino, Adolph XLIII's ex-press secretary tried to defend Fixed Noise's White House beat reporter. 2 - Research 2000 poll points out that southern white guys like Fixed Noise as reliable. 1 - Andrei Melnikow called his cell two feet from a gas stove...and turned it on.

Musical Segue: Mr. Telephone Man by New Edition.

Number 3: Look everyone, Howard Dean's here to further explain the "Public Option" stuff. Just ask Gov. Tim Palenty (R-MN) about it, and as tells us, we could see the Democrats lose both houses of Congress in 2010.

Number 2 (Worst Person in the World)
Bronze - Prof. Harold Hill loses GMAC, Best Buy, CVS, Travelocity and others in sponsorships. Now 20 corporate smarties have pulled out of the Hill paranoia fest.
Silver - Sen. Tom Coleman (R-OK) references death, Nazis and violence on government employees.
Gold - The Texas state Board of Education will now have mandatory bible classes. Seperation of church and state much?

Number 1: We mentioned in an earlier post that Tom DeLay will be on Dancing with the Stars starting this September. He's done this before, tap dancing in Congress. In other news from the bizzaro world, Rep. Michele Bachman (R-MN DWARF STAR PLUTO) says she will run for President if God tells her to. So, is that an earpiece there tuned to Comedian Boss Limbaugh or are you crazy enough to hear us? So Paul F. Tompkins, is either having the Worst Week Ever?

We'll base our decision on seeing you tomorrow.
