No KO tonight? Drats!
I heard Tweety last night say he was covering the results of the Ct primary live on MSNBC. Since the polls close at 8 pm, I am thinking that KO will be pre-empted. Damn!

1. I got my Countdown email and it says KO's ON!
Democratic voters in Connecticut began casting their ballots Tuesday morning and by 10:30 this evening, both Sen. Joe Lieberman and his rival Ned Lamont will likely know whether Lamont?s daring challenge has succeeded in defeating the man who only six years ago carried the party?s banner as its vice presidential candidate. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14228351 /

With a new poll showing the race tightening between Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman and his anti-war opponent, both sides made their final pitches to voters in the nation?s most closely watched primary election. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14223997/from/RS.1 /

American voters are as ready to dump incumbent lawmakers as they were just before they handed control of Congress to Republicans in 1994, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Monday. Republicans, who control both houses of Congress, stand to lose the most in the November elections because of strong anti-incumbent sentiment and they trail Democrats in support among registered voters, the poll showed. Fifty-three percent of those surveyed called themselves "anti-incumbent" -- nearly the same as the 54 percent who identified themselves as such in the summer of 1994 when Congress was still under the Democrats' control. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...

Countdown w/ Keith Olbermann broadcasts LIVE at 8 pm et, and the count is never complete without you. Join us.

Lebanon?s offer to deploy 15,000 troops along the border with Israel is ?interesting? and worthy of further consideration, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Tuesday. Olmert said such a move must go hand-in-hand with the disarming of Hezbollah guerrillas. Meanwhile, battles between Israeli forces and Hezbollah guerrillas raged Tuesday across southern Lebanon as diplomats at the United Nations struggled to keep a peace plan from collapsing over Arab demands for an immediate Israeli withdrawal. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14239148 /

Doctors completed reconstructive surgery on one of two formerly conjoined twins Tuesday after a 16-hour operation separated the girls born fused at the midsection. Four-year-old Maliyah Herrin was recovering in a pediatric intensive care unit while plastic surgeons continued to build an abdominal wall for her sister, Kendra. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14228689 /

Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman said Tuesday it could take months to resume normal shipments of Alaska oil, but that there are adequate supplies to make up for the loss to West Coast refineries. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14245133/from/RS.4 /

Thousands of "American Idol" hopefuls descended on the Rose Bowl before dawn Tuesday with wide-eyed dreams of becoming the next Taylor Hicks or Carrie Underwood. The competitors taking the field Tuesday had "American Idol" fame in mind, not football. Pasadena was the first of seven cities where producers of Fox TV's talent show planned auditions. Roads leading to the Rose Bowl were clogged as auditioners hurried to meet the supposed 6 a.m. PDT deadline to line up. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14243196 /

That's some of what we're planning for tonight's show.

2. Great! Thanks. Maybe Tweety will be on as a "guest"
I couldn't figure out why they'd bump Keith for Tweety and I guess, judging by the email you got, they aren't as stupid as I thought.

3. Nope, it's all good
From the Hardball transcripts last night:

"All right, thank you very much, Terry Jeffrey, E.J. Dionne and David Lightman. Tomorrow is the big day in Connecticut. Well be there reporting all day for MSNBC. "HARDBALL" will be live at 5:00 tomorrow night, at 7:00 tomorrow night. And MSNBC.com will have results. I'm going to give them to you as soon as we get them. I'll host a special webcast state of the art on the analysis and the results tomorrow night. Right now, it's time for "TUCKER.""

6. Olbermann Will Have The Call
If it does go Lamont's way in a landslide, then I wouldn't be surprised if they let Keith make the call during his show as a sort of "breaking news" story, shortly after the polls close at 8 PM.

If they don't make a call before his show ends at 9, then it's a much closer race than anyone expected.
