This is a PDF but explains everything that you need to know about that terrorist organization that just got elected Thursday.
The WaPo confirms what the Hotline wrote yesterday with regards to Sen. Bayh.
Friends alumnus Matthew Perry, best known as Chandler Bing, is returning to the televsion. Will he suffer the same fate as Lisa Kudrow's television show. Will Friends alumni have the same curse that the stars of Seinfeld have with post-Seinfeld sitcoms. Jennifer Aniston is the only star to have a successful post-Friends career in my opinion.
The former co-star of the long-running Friends is returning to NBC to star in a still untitled series from West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin about the behind-the-scenes life at a Saturday Night Live-type sketch-comedy show.Two days after Warner Brothers said that there will be no reunion, Kathleen Turner says that she was approached for a Friends reunion. I'll believe it when I see it.
The series will also star Steven Weber (Wings) and comedian D.L. Hughley.[...]
In the new series, the trade papers reported, he’ll portray a former writer for the show who is hired to fill in when the producer quits.
Perry becomes the third Friends star to get his own series. Matt LeBlanc took his character into the spinoff, Joey, which has floundered, and Lisa Kudrow’s starred in HBO’s The Comeback, which drew mixed reviews.
Six people have made the short list for the next general manager of the Cincinnati Reds.
The West Wing will go out in style.
Broadway performer Kristin Chenoweth, who plays a presidential aide, recalled the response she received recently while singing at the Kennedy Center.I have no problem with Democrats aiming to the center or Virginia Governor Tim Kaine recieving the honor of giving the Democratic response to the State of the Union.
"I was at a table with former Sen. Tom Daschle and Sandra Day O'Connor. After realizing I wasn't going to tell them who would win the election, both said they had never seen a movie or TV show that was more true-to-life about life in Washington."
Whitford chimed in: "Alan Greenspan - you know, with that face that's just not trained to express anything - once said to me he was really upset when our Fed chairman died and nobody cared. It wasn't even the 'A' story line."
Evan Bayh has not made his decision public yet with regards to how he will vote on the nomination of Judge Sam Alito. My guess is that he will vote no.
"Senator Bayh will consider the answers to the questions in the meeting and the answers Judge Alito gave during his confirmation hearing before making a decision on the nominee," spokesman Dan Pfeiffer said, adding they discussed Alito's "judicial philosophy on a number of issues, including the parameters of executive power."It is now official. Emily Hughes, sister of 2002 Olympic Gold medalist Sarah Hughes, will not be Turin/Torino-bound. The U.S. Olympic Committee issued the announcement concerning Michelle Kwan yesterday.
Supreme Court votes are considered crucial for senators with potential presidential aspirations, such as Bayh, because hot-button issues the court deals with, such as abortion, are very important to many party activists.
Bayh, D-Ind., voted against Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts last year because, he said, he wasn't able to learn about Roberts' beliefs.
Following a monitoring session Friday at the East West Ice Palace in Artesia, Calif., U.S. Figure Skating announced that five-time World and nine-time U.S. champion Michelle Kwan is competitively fit to compete in the 2006 Olympic Winter Games and has confirmed her nomination to the 2006 U.S. Olympic Team. A five person monitoring committee evaluated Kwan as she performed her free skate and short program back-to-back at 11 a.m. The committee determined Kwan’s performances proved her competitive fitness is more than adequate for participation in the 2006 Olympic Winter Games.I hope Emily tries again in 2010.
