Former Vice President Al Gore plans to launch a cable news network for young adults that he says will be "irreverent and bold" but not liberal.

Gore said Tuesday that the as-yet-unnamed network will be "an independent voice in this industry" for people ages 18-34 "who want to learn about the world in a voice they recognize and a view they recognize as their own."

Bill Clinton helps Al Gore wire every school in America to Gore's new bold and irreverent news channel hoping to indoctrinate,,, er, uh, to get the democrat's message out to school kids.

Wanda Baucus' pet peeve? Apparently it's parked cars/vans.

"Ciao, America!" by Italian journalist Beppe Severgnini, who lived a few doors from the Baucuses on 34th Street in Georgetown. On Page 222, the author recalls this scene just before he moved back to Italy:

"The senator's wife is venturing out into the open again, and took the opportunity to yell at our removal van. ('Get away from there right now! I'm a senator's wife!')"

Yesterday, we asked Severgnini, a columnist for the Corriere della Sera newspaper, for details. "She was really the sweetest person as a neighbor for so many months. She was very sweet," he told us, "but on the day we had the removal van, she went berserk. I thought it was very un-American, un-Washington, un-Democratic and in very bad taste. It was simply a removal van and she was really very aggressive, shouting, 'I'm a senator's wife!' It is printed in my memory . . . The van was not blocking the street, and we had very little furniture."

This all happened in April 1995; Severgnini's book, based on his diaries, was a hit in Italy long before it was reprinted here. Baucus, 56, told us: "I don't remember any such thing. I would never run out and say that I'm a senator's wife because I try to hide the fact all the time . . . I would never, ever, ever ask a moving van to move from in front of somebody's house. Why would I do that?" Link

Affleck confirms suspicions he's an idiot at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.

Overheard: Ben Affleck admonishing an attractive staffer for Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist: "Why do you work for him?" Affleck also lecturing NBC White House correspondent Norah O'Donnell (who doesn't vote so as to remain objective): "It's your duty to vote. You're a bad citizen!" . . . Vincent D'Onofrio, star of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," asked whether he would attend the Bloomberg after-party, responding: "Why would I go to that idiot's party?" (Referring, we guess, to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.) Link

Excuse me please for what might appear to be a stupid question but I am old and out of touch so it is a serious question on my behalf, but isn't that what MTV is?

Pardon moi, but wasn't it Affleck who didn't vote in 2000, matter of fact isn't it true that he has never been registered?

BUSH, ROVE, CARD RIP KERRY IN NEW BOOK: PRESIDENT VOWS TO MAKE KERRY 'REGRET' DISPARAGING WAR COALITION; A 'JFK WANNABE'

President Bush vows to make John Kerry “regret” disparaging the coalition that liberated Iraq, a new book set for release next week will reveal.

In exclusive interviews with President Bush and lengthy, one-on-one, on-the-record sessions with his closest aides, bestselling author Bill Sammon threatens to “out-Woodward” Woodward, who convinced only Bush and Donald Rumsfeld to speak on the record.

MISUNDERESTIMATED: The President Battles Terrorism, John Kerry, and the Bush Haters," has been obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.

Hot on the heels of a wave of Bush-bashing tomes, MISUNDERESTIMATED, released next week by REGAN BOOKS, takes readers inside the Oval Office for historic decisions of war and peace -- from a pro-Bush point of view!

Sammon quotes the president plotting to beat the Massachusetts Democrat by turning his own words against him.

Bush reveals, in his own words and for the first time, why “I deserve a second term” and how he is encouraging Kerry to “misunderestimate” him.

Rove details for Sammon – Senior White House Correspondent for The Washington Times and political analyst for Fox News Channel – the Bush campaign's strategy to paint Kerry as a condescending elitist whose “blatant” attempts to capitalize on his Vietnam experience will ultimately backfire.

Card, the White House Chief of Staff, goes further by deriding Kerry as a JFK “wannabe” who lacks the mettle to be president! Bush faults his own father for having “cut and run early” from Iraq after the Gulf War in 1991.

• Card, who has worked for both Bushes, describes “43” as an action-oriented Texan with street smarts, while “41” is the consummate diplomat who governed “without bravado or braggadocio.”

• On the way to his infamous landing on an aircraft carrier, Bush toyed with his Secret Service agent by intentionally shaking the plane from side to side and then nosing downward so sharply they lifted out of their seats.

• The president's daughters, Barbara and Jenna, feared he would not survive his Thanksgiving visit to Baghdad, the secrecy of which was nearly compromised when First Lady Laura Bush inadvertently asked an out-of-the-loop Secret Service agent for her husband's location!

• Powell declares: “The press is fixated on Vietnam.” This unhealthy obsession, according to Bush aides, threatens to influence the president's contest with Kerry, a decorated Vietnam veteran.

• Months before Howard Dean's “I Have a Scream” speech, Rove quietly produced a TV spot featuring an earlier Dean outburst and found that even Democratic focus groups were turned off by the anger of the Bush haters.

Haha. He's getting ready to blow his own horn again. That frou-frou embroidered trim is just his style along with Ta-raaa-zah's blouse he surely borrowed for the occasion.
