According to Pop Bitch:

“Ricky Martin has approached Barry Manilow about recording
a version of Copacabana. This will be the best record in the
history of the world. Ever.”

My smart, amusing friend Bryan and his smart, amusing friends just started a promising blog called Right On America! One of Bryan’s recent posts:

“I just finished All The President’s Men and have 3 observations:

1.) If every American was forced to read the book, it would be the end of the Republican party

2.) The real winner in the 2000 election is Richard M. Nixon and Gerald Ford – their Administrations are back in force in W’s cabinet

3.) Nixon’s ‘dirty tricks’ group did some damn funny things:

* disributed all over Harlem “FREE BEER” flyers for a McGovern (Democrat) rally –
no beer made lots of people real, real mad

* Sent 100 pizza’s to several Democratic Rally [frat-boyish, but funny]

* followed Ted Kennedy’s campaign and kept calling the owner of the rally sites
to cancel the event – then the Kennedy campaign would show up to a locked building

* infilitrated the Amish [no shit]

God bless us, each and every one.”
