Today, we have the the historic debate regarding the outcome of the Ohio votes. I’ll make like TV Guide and say Cheers to my senator, Ms. Boxer for challenging the electors from the state of Ohio. Jeers to the mainstream media for not airing the debates. People had to go to CSpan. I guess Robert Blake’s trial or whatever garbage was more important.
Then, we have Alberto Gonzales’s testimony, in which he basically said that the president can just decide, THEORETICALLY of course, not to follow the country’s laws. And hey, it really depends on what the definition of TORTURE is. Or something. However, I have to mention a YTOWN ALERT during the testimony. Senator Durbin mentioned the Supreme Court case Youngstown Sheet and Tube v. Sawyer when interrogating Gonzales. Sad to say, I had never heard of this case even though I’m from Youngstown. Mr. Pallante, I should have learned that in Honors American History. For shame.
Then, we have the fond (or not-so-fond) farewell of our favorite bow-tie-wearing freak Tucker Carlson, who will be leaving CNN (Crossfire goes bye-bye too, much to the delight of Jon Stewart). I hate his smug manboy face, and I wish he were leaving my TV forever, but it looks like he’s going to MSNBC. Thank God I don’t watch that network.
Seven troops died today. Mission accomplished?
