Geez Elaine, I thought Angelina and Brad's twins were the real news. And where's Brittany, Paris, and Lindsay? Viacom, Murdoch, CBS, ABC, NBC, and NYT's brainrot of 24 hour celeb"news."

One of my all-time favorite C-Span coverages was of Torture memo guy Alberto Gonzales's testimony: Gonzales Tried to Get John Ashcroft to Sign on to Wiretapping Program on His Sickbed...Alberto Gonzales' former deputy reveals an attempt at an outrageous attempt to get a bedridden John Ashcroft to extend Bush's unwarranted domestic spying program
