Now What? Good Evening from New York. Rote complaint number 236 out of the Republican handbook: The Obama Stimulus could not possibly take effect fast enough... In reality, it only took a couple of minutes. Our fifth story on the Countdown: Less than half an hour after the President signed the stimulus package into law this afternoon... Construction crews in Tuscumbia, Missouri... beginning work on a new bridge...The first project in the nation to get started under the $787 Billion dollar plan.
Unpardonable: Here's one for the TiVo, kids. President Bush was right. Our fourth story tonight: the news that President Bush even enraged his own vice president... but in this case (last time I'll say it)... President Bush was right.
Bristol Power: There is a whistleblower in the House Of Hypocrisy that is Governor Sarah Palin... And it is her daughter -- Bristol Palin. In our third story on the Countdown, she is now speaking out about being a teenage mother... And she says that abstinence is not realistic. And that having her baby was her own choice, and that her mother's view on that -- quote -- "doesn't matter".
WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD: David Tillman, Bill-O, and Rush Limbaugh vie for tonight's top honors.
A-nother A-pology: For an athlete being credited with apologizing for using steroids, Alex Rodriguez sure has been meticulous about not admitting he used steroids. At a follow-up news conference just eight days after he admitted to using something that triggered a positive test during a steroid sweep in 2003, Rodriguez went as far as using the term "Boli" to describe the substance he and an unidentified cousin obtained in the Dominican Republic and injected each other with, about twice a month, for three years, never knowing whether it was horse laxatives or lighter fluid and apparently never realizing that "Boli" was a nickname for the steroid "Primo-bolan." Our number one story on the Countdown: But at least he produced two world-class Freudian Slips.
