"President-elect Obama is meeting every day with his transition team, or in
Beltway lingo, his trannies. They are helping him pick who will be in his new

that is currently hiring." --Stephen Colbert

Movie Review By Valerie Plame, Sort Of
Kate Beckinsale delivers a searing performance in "Nothing But the Truth" as a journalist who spends a year in jail rather than reveal a source. But she shouldn't count on a rave from former CIA operative Valerie Plame....Plame has not seen the movie yet, but she tells us: "I'm not a fan of Judith Miller.

"Now this is a tough process because when, you know, you are going to appoint to you a Cabinet-level position, there is a whole process. It is a vetting process.
