I just want to put attention on some information that Janice Dean has on MS .  
It afflicts more people than we know.
We wish her well

I am posting this separately because I think the two are so different.
My question is where does Hillary Clinton get those ugly clothes?
My sisters my friends and all we are so amazingly surprised and we all agree.
we seen better outfits at JC Penny(just a figure of speech).
Doesn't she have some people around her can advise her.
She has been spending some, adjusting her face therefore she has to get someone to help her in fashion sense.
We see better dressed women in our everyday life

I went to the "Countdown" website a little while ago. I saw BOR was WPITW, but I didn't have the will to watch the video and hear the smearing and distortion. For those with tougher stomachs, what exactly did Keith say?

I had an Olby-free night tonight, so I didn't see it. Maybe someone will chime in with the info. If not, you can count on Media Matters to post video of it within 24 hours. It's part of their apparent deal with Olby: he reads their stuff on the air, and they reward him with free PR the next day.

By the way, I noticed O'Reilly today did his segment with Dennis Miller (usually on Wednesday) and Bernie and Jane (without Jane, usually on Thursday). I'm betting he's taking the rest of the week off.

J$, that's great you saw O'Reilly, because I missed a lot of it. The part I wanted to see was when Bernie was going to name the journalists who are biased toward Obama and his pastor (I know, there are probably a million, but Bernie was going to "name names". Do you remember who he mentioned?

Sarah P, I am as far away from Hillary's politics as can be. I know people LOVE to dump on her for her pantsuits, but what's the problem? They are tailored perfectly and look very expensive, and she accessorizes very well.
Some idiot the other day wrote as if she should dress like Britney Spears. The woman is 60 years old - what do you expect?

You know, you could be right. I didn't think of that until right now. Another indication was he said yesterday he said there would be encores of "The Great American Culture Quiz" (GACQ, as I call it) tomorrow, Thursday, and Friday.
I don't understand why he would suddenly take the rest of the week off, but what do I know?
By the way, Johnny, I wasn't necessarily asking you about Olby. I was just asking anyone. But I'll just read the MSNBC transcript tomorrow. They're less painful than actually seeing or hearing the show.

You know I can't remember? I was multitasking at the time and it seemed to me they spent more time on the Bosnia story. I'll check it out tho and get back to you.

After personally checking my tape, Roland Martin, "Newsweek," and the "Chicago Sun-Times" were named as apologists for Rev. Wright. It was more BOR naming the names than Bernie.

NOW I remember it!  You'll find something on this in the just-posted Wednesday links article.

Thanks Mike. And yes JD, I just read your link to Roland Martin.
I NEVER agree with that guy on anything.

Any idea what has become of Jamie Colby? Her blog has been inactive and now dropped from the blogroll of other Fox blogs.

She's been doing weekend news, usually paired with Eric Shawn or Kelly Wright if I recall correctly. Her blog was tied to the "Fox Online" weekend show, which has been replaced by a two hour block. The last entry was March 12, which isn't that long ago. But the fact that it's not listed on the blogroll is not a good sign!

She was pretty good about letting her regular readers know what her schedule would be, because it started changing around a lot. Then she was not in her regular slots over the past weekend and no updates on her blog either. Just wondering if she found herself in the middle of contract negotiations like Laurie Dhue.....

Jamie says she is just on vacation.

Does anyone know why Greta is not doing her regular program, but has been a political reporter.

All of FNC has become politics 24/7 and I guess it is pulling in the ratings. I've usually had my fill of the democratic tit for tat by the time Greta's OTR comes on and tune it out.
