Countdown Live Blog: 8/12/09

The Tie: Sage green. Looks like the fall collection must be coming out.

Number 5: Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) has become a two-faced liar. So has Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA). This after President Obama praised them for helping out on the Health Care reform. Grassley said that you have every right to fear about those "death panels" and lost $1.2 million from Big Pharma. Isakon co-sponsored a bill on living wills, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), probably the only sane Good Oldboysandgirls Party member in The Last Frontier blasted Tina Fey's Evil Twin Sister on that subject. Mama Bear Ariana Huffington joins us to seek theat bipartianism needed to settle this.

Nutcases are coming up, now anti-government militas are on the raise. The Southern Poverty Law Center now claims that a changing demographic, with hispanics and many others coming into the country, and President Obama in charge. Mark Potok joins us from said SPLC headquarters for more about this.

Number 4: Professor Harold Hill is losing everything, especially after his racist comments on President Obama hating white people: his mind, his cred and now his advertisers. SC Johnson (A Family Company), Sargento Cheese, Progressive Insurance (Flo just delivered a double barrel bird flip a la Stone Cold Steve Austin at Beck),, Proctor and Gamble, Geico (The Gecko was pissed off as was Oobi getting paid), Men's Wearhouse (they sure didn't like it), and quite possibly State Farm (Like a Good Neighbor, State Farm isn't there.) Chris Hayes from The Nation joins us to seek the answers from's petition.

ddball: Christy Mathewson was born in this day in 1870. And there was a mess in California with a semi full of tomatoes crashing into Amtrak's train. In New York City, Mentoria Hutchenson dances to direct traffic. Allen Funt did this years ago on Candid Camera.

Best Persons: 3 - ClusterFixed and Fiends' Steve Doocy has an imaginary friend. And no, it's not named Blooregard Q. Kazoo. He copied The Heritage Foundation's five questions about the Town Hall meetings. 2 - Steven Hawking snapped on Inverstor's Business Daily's commentary on the proposed US Health Care being like the UK, responding via The Guardian. And he enjoys the National Health System in the UK. 1 - Ed Morrissey blasts the far right nut jobs on training prisioners. He's also a writer for And a conserative. Good for you, sir!

Musical Segue: "True" by Spandau Ballet.

Number 3: Turdblossom did indeed get his hand into the cookie jar on the politically charged firing of the 2006 attorneys. So sayeth the House Judiciary Committee overseeing this. One of those who was sacked, New Mexico's David Iglesias, joins the show to tell all. And Harriet "the Spy" Meyers, noted ex-Supreme Court Justice nominee, told them about it, too. For Iglesias, this could very well be revenge, a dish served best to people of taste (or no taste whatsoever like the Adolph XLIII Gestapo) cold.

Number 2 (Worst Person on the World)
Bronze - Comedian Boss Limbaugh hates being called a Nazi. Pot, kettle, you all know Mr. Black.
Silver - Lou Dobbs claims Howard Dean forwarded left-wing facism. Called him Dracula instead. Dean's brother is calling for his sacking, so he can work in the horse stables with those illegal ailens he employs.
Gold - Skeezix claims that GE, NBC Universal's parent, made radio frequency modules as components for Iraqi roadside bombs, and it's all unconfirmed. It's all denied. And now Keith wants Bill fired. This time, it's serious.

Number 1: Did you hear Rep. Michele Bachman (R-MN DWARF PLANET PLUTO) saying that Americorps is a "secret army for President Obama?" Her son, Harrison, just joined Americorps. Cue the Carl Lewis "UH-OH!" It's the manna that keeps on giving from Minnesota. in other White House Idol 2012 news, ex-Pa. Sen. Rick Santorum (R) wants to run for President. Oh, Christian Finnegan, punchline thee.

See you tomorrow night. I'm off to watch Pedro Martinez in his Phillies debut (unless Gary Matthews is on, then my TV audio gets muted.)


  1. Phils lead 2-0 and Pedro is looking good thus far.

  2. unless Gary Matthews is on, then my TV audio gets muted

    You're not the only one. And Keith Olbermann's call to get Bill O'Reilly fired will be about as effective as Jeff Samardzija's pitching was tonight.
