"How about the presidential Democratic campaign, the primaries? Whoa, are you kidding me? I mean, today they're in Indiana. My home state. And also North Carolina. And then, after that, they go to Canada. And then after the Canadian primaries, they go to Europe. They do the European [primaries], and the election is still three years away." --David Letterman

Jon Stewart, Journalist?
If you flip on
"The Daily Show" on Comedy Central expecting just laughs, think again. A new
study shows the popular late night "news" report is giving more news-related
offerings than people might think.
The study from the Project for Excellence in Journalism, which analyzed 136 episodes, indicates Stewart may have as much David Brinkley in him as David Letterman.

Subject: Hillary should quit
Hillary should quit. Obama should NOT ask her to be VP. She has high negatives.
Democrats need to unite behind Obama 100%.
End of story.
Love your site.
Thanks for writing, Kathy.
OK, if Hillary quits today, here are three possible scenarios.
Hillary quits, Obama does not offer her the VP slot and Hillary supporters move to Mexico and Canada.
Hillary quits, does not accept the VP slot and she'll be painted as a sore loser/bitch by the media.
Hillary quits, Obama immediately offers her the VP slot and it's Obama, Hillary and Bill going after John McCain.

"President Bush held a big Cinco de Mayo dinner celebration last night at the

Americans don't want to do, as opposed to the people of India, who are doing the
jobs Americans did want to do, but can't, of course, anymore." --Jay Leno

them has an exit strategy, you know?" --Jay Leno

Olympic torch is held aloft at the top of Mount Everest, May 8, 2008 in this
image taken from television footage.
On Thursday morning, five climbers, two of them women, staged the torch relay just shy of the world's highest peak amid strong winds and minus-30-degree temperatures. "Beijing welcomes you!" and "tashi delek," the climbers said -- using a Tibetan greeting meaning "may everything be well" -- after escorting the flame in a mini-relay to the 8,848-metre (29,030-foot) peak at the end of a six-hour climb. Beijing student Huang Chungui passed the flame to ethnic Tibetan woman Ciren Wangmu, who trudged the final steps unaided by oxygen to hold the torch aloft. That prompted jubilation among the reserve climbers, officials and a small team of journalists who had endured thin air at high altitude, sub-freezing temperatures and basic sanitation for nearly two weeks as they waited for the final ascent. Photo/CCTV
broke out on the top of the world.
