I know I'm supposed to be interested in this kind of stuff. I try. I really do try. Buuuuuut, I so love those gossip articles! "Impeach Bush, it's the American thing to do." I'll write my representatives about that as soon as I finish reading all the latest gossips stories in Broowaha.

You're abusive rather than constructive. Please reread what's at the top of every Add a comment: "Please express criticism in courteous, temperate and constructive terms." You don't like it, don't read it. Others of us do like it and do read it. 90% of us are now Progressives. WE are the New Moral Majority. Get over it. Better yet, get with it.
