Countdown Live Blog: 8/25/09

The Tie: Pink, cream and lavender stripes.

Number 5: Herr Goebles issued a statement that Enhanced Interrigation Techniques waterboarding and torture did work on al Qaeda, denouncing the decision by DoJ and the CIA to investigate this. One of those that was investigated was asked 183 times, and nearly died. And needless to say the least., Rep. Conyers and Sen. Leahy agreed that an investigation and Special Prosecutor is needed. John Siften from The Daily Beast joins us for his view. And Jonathon Turley then joins us to examine what's next.

umber 4: Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) continues to lie about opposing the Public Option because "there has to be options" and a decendent of Ike said he'd take a gun to "Hitler". Michael Steele Sieve said Medicare has to be cut and Sen. Tom Colburn (R-OK) had no heart. Just like The Tin Man. Chris Hayes from The Nation discovers nothing.

Oddball: 100 years ago, Michael Reddy was born. Remember him in "The Day The Earth Stood Still"? Spanish snail races. "Look at that escargo!" In Tokyo, the world's biggest origami event was held.

Best Persons: 3 - Simon Holden stole beer and went to apply to the same store. 2 - The Pentagon will interview those to those embedded. 1 - Skeezix went out on MSNBC and mentioned the Toledo Mud Hens.

Musical Segue: "All I Want To Do Is Dream" by The Everly Brothers.

Number 3: A Special Report on the United Health Group, who stands to make lots of money if and when the Public Option is deleted. Video later.

Number 2 (Worst Persons in the World)
Bronze - Prof. harold Hill attacked colorofchange.org on his comments about "racist" Obama comments.
Silver - Former beauty contestant Grethcen Carlson missed a lot of the appointees.
Gold - Matt LaVoi, spokesperson for Rep. Wally Herger (R-CA) who criticized a guy for being proud to be a "far right wing terrorist", and dubbed it "satire". What a troika of douchenozzles.

Number 1: Death Panels, death book, death spam, and now: ZOMBIES! Yes, the Good Oldboysandgirls Party might be going to the zombies page of their nut gathering book on health care reform. Braaaaaaaainssss... Shawn of the Dead? Max Brooks will now tell more. You might know his father, Mel Brooks, he of Spaceballs, The Producers and Young "Frahn-ken-steen"...

As for Comedian Boss Limbaugh, what a maroon! See you tomorrow.
