For the record I only know Reagans birthday because my mothers birthday is on the same day.

Quote:
At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, former President Bill Clinton said that Rep. Michele Bachmann’s assertion that the United States has the best health care system in the world is not true and that the new crop of Republicans in Congress are living “in a parallel universe divorced from reality with no facts.” Clinton was responding to comments Bachmann made during her Tea Party response to President Obama’s State of the Union address. ... Clinton continued, “You can get the best health care in the world in America if you are Bill Clinton, or David Gergen or Turki Faisal, but that’s not the same thing as having the best system that works for everybody.”
Has a truer statement been made lately?

A 'Glee' for Glenn Beck? Hallelujah! No, really. That's the name.

Marc Cherry, writer for "The Golden Girls," and the creator of "Desperate Housewives," is of a rare breed: a gay Republican. And now, he's trying to bridge the gap between his two identities -- kind of. Cherry's new show, an ABC drama set in the heartland, is aiming to bring the theatrics of 'Glee' to the tea party crowd.

Called "Hallelujah," the show is about a small town and its mysterious savior -- it was inspired by the 1947 Cary Grant film, "The Bishop's Wife." In addition to the miracles of kindness performed, there will be plenty of singing -- from the pews.

There will be a "generous helping of gospel music," Cherry told TVGuide.com. "I'm calling it 'Glee' for conservative Republicans."




Bristol Palin said recently that she might be taking the path of her mother, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, by seeking political office at some point.

During an interview with E! Online, the former "Dancing With the Stars" runner-up and possible future author said that she would "probably" run for office some day, but that the day would be "further down the road."

Asked what would drive her to enter politics, Palin gave a response that sounded similar to one that her mother had given before.

"If I saw something that needed to be changed, then I would step up to the plate and do something about it," Palin answered.

While Bristol waits to mount a potential political bid of her own, she told E! News that she remains firmly in support of her mom's potential quest for higher office.

"I think she would be a wonderful president, and I still think that she should run," Palin said. "She's just so common-sense conservative, just, 'Here's what we've gotta do and this is how we're gonna do it,' and she brings a whole 'nother aspect to politics because she's a mom, because she runs a household, and I just think she's really smart."

wow. she runs a household. surely that's just like running a country. all it takes is some elbow-grease and good old fashioned gumption, and there ain't nothing we can't tackle together.

I really HATE "whole nother"..Anyway... everyone can get a book deal these days. Snooki "wrote" a book. 304 pages?

gawker.com

Bristol Palin Memoir Due This Summer Bristol Palin has had a long and at times difficult career in show business. It's about time she settled down and wrote her glorious memoirs. And that's exactly what she's doing, from that house she bought in Arizona.

An early listing has been flagged on Amazon for "Untitled Bristol Palin Memoir," by Bristol Palin. The 304-page bildungsroman is set to be released in June under William Morrow & Co., an imprint of Harper Collins, which publishes Sarah Palin's silly books.

Here's an (unofficial) preview of the book's structure:

Part One: I was born.

Part Two: I got pregnant.

Part Three: I went dancing on teevee.

Part Four: ??

The bildungsroman (German pronunciation: [ˈbɪldʊŋs.ʁoˌmaːn]; German: "formation novel") is a genre of the novel which focuses on the psychological and moral growth of the protagonist from youth to adulthood.[1] Change is thus extremely important.[2] The genre is further characterized by a number of formal, topical and thematic features.[3] The term coming-of-age novel is sometimes used interchangeably with bildungsroman, but its use is usually wider and less technical.

$5 says she'd never describe Hillary Clinton in that way.

I probably sound more like that guy than I'd like to admit. Although I can consciously "turn it off" when I think about it, as I sort of have to in my profession.

It could be a lot of fun

Quote:
Cherry and Wind hope to begin shooting by early April, in time for ABC to consider the series for a spot on its 2011-12 lineup. Here are Hallelujah's central characters, which Cherry and Wind will soon be looking to cast with both familiar and fresh faces.

Rye Turner, the church-going diner owner who starts to become aware of some of the corruption pervading his town.

Ruth Turner, Rye's good, although bitter, wife, who has been hardened by years of heartache and tragedy.

Willow, Rye and Ruth's beautiful, hard-working daughter.

Matthew, Rye and Ruth's 8-year-old handicapped son who was left brain-damaged in an accident and hasn't spoken a word since.

Del Roman, the richest man in town, with a very young wife he can't control, who starts engaging in questionable behavior.

Vita, Del's sexy young wife, who is also a troublemaker.

Gideon, Del's delinquent teenage son, who has just been booted from college and forms a fondness for Willow.

Miss Dulcie, the 75-year-old blind black woman who raised Del and is keenly aware of what's going on in Hallelujah.

Jared, a mysterious stranger who drifts in to town. He possesses a special quality but is covering up a dark past.

Sounds like an intriguing idea. Though I think he'd be surprised at how many non-conservative Republicans might check out such a show.

No. Please, please, dear sweet God, NO.

Like I said before, if they can put books out, there's hope for me yet .

WHY won't the media just LEAVE the Palin children ALONE already?

As a rule of thumb you should make your 'Dancing with the Stars' star turn come after your political career, not before.
