Good morning! Love the pics! These guys are true heroes.

And now for those not-so-heroic [reposting what I posted at the end of yesterday's thread:

To: Hillary's Lovely Legs

Lying History is much more accurate.

Hill's book headed for the NYT Bestseller list? Or no?

NO BIDS FOR BOOK EXCERPTS Hil book in a bind: Magazines not keen on excerpts
But three mags that have carried excerpts of other books - The New York Times Sunday Magazine, Vanity Fair and Newsweek - answered inquiries from the Daily News by saying they don't plan to publish a piece of Clinton's memoir.

The New Yorker also is believed to be staying on the sidelines.

It was unclear if all four of the mags were among those approached by Simon & Schuster, which bought rights to publish the former first lady's book around the world for $8 million.

At the same time, a U.S. News & World Report spokesman said the mag is interested.

Time and People, both owned by Time Inc., appear to be the other likely contenders.

Their level of interest may depend on how much Clinton reveals about her White House years and marriage.

Newsweek editor in chief Richard Smith told The News: "It's fair to say that, given our significant spending on Iraq and other international coverage, we're looking very carefully at any spending on optional items."

Meanwhile, more than a month before the book's release, there was evidence of why Simon & Schuster ordered a million-copy printing.

At online bookseller Amazon.com, "Living History" was ranked No. 2,630 in orders late Monday, the day Simon & Schuster announced the on-sale date and title. By late yesterday, the book stood at No. 73.

The rival BN.com showed the book at No. 618,267 on Monday, but up at No. 13 yesterday.

---snip---

Bill Clinton's "Between Hope and History," a collection of political views released on the eve of his reelection campaign, became a best-seller and then a big flop. Of the 500,000 copies printed, 425,000 remained unsold at the end of the year.

Would any Guild member EVER be the keynote speaker at any venue and show up with un-washed hair?! This witch respects nobody.


New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton delivers her message at the Aqua Turf. (JOHN WOIKE) Apr. 28, 2003

Story from the Washington Times:

In a fiery speech Monday night, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, New York Democrat, accused the Bush administration of having the worst economic policies since Herbert Hoover, with no plan to end the nation's fiscal troubles.

The former first lady told about 1,550 Connecticut Democrats that an increasing number of Americans are unhappy with Mr. Bush's policies.

"There is an unease," she told the party faithful gathered at the Democrats' annual Jefferson Jackson Bailey dinner in Southington. "People know better than what they hear and what they see."

Mrs. Clinton accused Mr. Bush of squandering the surpluses that accumulated during the administration of her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

"In just two years, the country again faces hefty budget deficits," she said. "We are, unfortunately, reaping the bad consequences of a wrong economic policy. They have the most wrongheaded economic policies that we've seen since Herbert Hoover."

She received a standing ovation when she angrily said it was unfair for critics of Mr. Bush's policies to be accused of being unpatriotic, the Associated Press reports.

"We are Americans," she said. "We have the right to participate and debate any administration."

More quotes from NewMax:

"I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic," a shrill-sounding Clinton shouted during her address to Connecticut's Jefferson Jackson Bailey dinner.

"We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration," she shrieked. (they're not embellishing)

Keep up the howler monkey routine hillary, you only make President Bush look better and better.

Geez, I didn't know that mags and newspapers had to pay an author to run excerpts of their book. (or is that an excuse?) Shouldn't the author pay the mag or newspaper? After all they're helping to sell the book.

I wonder what the real story is with this murder-suicide.

DAVIE, Fla. -- A prominent Democratic fund raiser and his business partner were found shot to death Tuesday in a banquet hall they owned, police said.

Jerome Berlin and his business partner, Michael Pecora, were found dead in a locked office on the second floor of the Signature Grand banquet hall in Davie, police said. Police believe the deaths were a murder-suicide.

Dating back to 1997, Berlin aided such well-known Democratic senators as Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, Tom Daschle of South Dakota and Bill Nelson of Florida, according to Federal Election Commission fund-raising records.

He was acquitted in 1991 of federal charges that he and another lawyer conspired to defraud a securities investment firm in 1985. Full story

File that story away, hopefully the real story will be bad news for many dims.

Can't believe it's the last day of April!

It is zipping by. About the third week of this month I heard that day was the last 'we' all worked to pay income tax, usually in the middle of May. This was due to tax cuts.

The butterflies are back!

Another dispute is brewing over Florida's infamous "butterfly" ballots and hanging chad - whether more than 6-million votes cast in the nation's most disputed presidential contest should be destroyed or preserved for their historical significance.

The ballot debacle delayed the 2000 election's outcome for 36 days and sparked a bitter fight between Republicans and Democrats before the U.S. Supreme Court stopped a statewide recount, giving George W. Bush the White House with 537 more votes than Al Gore in Florida.

More than two years later, the state's elections supervisors say they need the storage space and want to get rid of the ballots. [snip]

The president's brother, Gov. Jeb Bush, said some of the ballots should be preserved.

"Some should be saved for historical purposes," he said. "I don't think the right thing to do would be to destroy them all." [snip]Full story

We should definitely preserve some so we can show our grandchildren just how stupid or and careless people who vote can be.

We need to do a search on those names to see what they've been up to recently.

M- could you help if you get the chance? You're so very good at finding things.

Norman Mailer has answered the "why did we go to war with Iraq" question.

With their dominance in sport, at work and at home eroded, Bush thought white American men needed to know they were still good at something. That's where Iraq came in...

There were, however, even better reasons for using our military skills, but these reasons return us to the ongoing malaise of the white American male. He had been taking a daily drubbing over the past 30 years. For better or worse, the women’s movement had had its breakthrough successes and the old, easy white male ego had withered in the glare. Even the mighty consolations of rooting for your team on TV had been skewed. There was now less reward in watching sports than there used to be, a clear and declarable loss. The great white stars of yesteryear were for the most part gone, gone in football, in basketball, in boxing, and half-gone in baseball. Black genius now prevailed in all these sports (and the Hispanics were coming up fast; even the Asians were beginning to make their mark). We white men were now left with half of tennis (at least its male half), and might also point to ice-hockey, skiing, soccer, golf, (with the notable exception of the Tiger) as well as lacrosse, swimming, and the World-Wide Wrestling Federation — remnants and orts of a once-great and glorious centrality. rest of long tedious tripe

Dang! Norm has found us out!

Many Dims demanding that Lyndon LaRouche be at the May 3rd Dim debate! LOL!!

South Carolina media reported on April 29 that the state's Democratic Party chairman had received a letter from nearly 40 current and former Democratic elected officials asking that Presidential pre-candidate Lyndon LaRouche be invited to the May 3 Presidential debate to be broadcast nationally by ABC-TV. At a press conference held by the representatives on April 28, Florence, S.C. City Councilman Edward Robinson released the letter, which had been sent to state chairman Richard Harpootlian on April 12. In it, the Democratic leaders—roughly half from South Carolina and the other half from other states, joined by former Surgeon-General Joycelyn Elders—pointed out that LaRouche now has more contributors to his Presidential campaign than any of the nine Democratic candidates invited to the debate, from which the Party is seeking to exclude him.

"It's outrageous. It's stupid" that LaRouche has not been invited, campaign spokesman Dr. Debra Freeman was quoted in a statewide AP wire. "The Democratic Party in the State of South Carolina has long been under the influence of Don Fowler," she said, adding the campaign did not plan legal action. "We will continue doing what we have been doing, and take the campaign directly to the people."

It was some sort of fundraiser event, I think the JJB is a school. I'll check in a sec.

Awww, nobody cares who Liz Hurley is.

April 30, 2003 -- LIZ Hurley blew up at British Airways flight attendants the other day when they wouldn't give her married boyfriend a first-class seat next to hers. Hurley and Arun Nayar were at Gatwick airport preparing to jet off to Barbados. Hurley paid almost $9,000 for a first-class seat, but Nayar used his frequent flier miles for club-class passage, London's Daily Mirror reports. Liz asked that he be upgraded. When she was refused, she yelled: "Don't you know who I am? I bloody demand that he's upgraded. Don't you know he's a millionaire? I'm always flying on British Airways, so you'd better pull your finger out." A spy told the Mirror, "She was a complete diva. It was shocking to watch." PageSix

We hear...

April 30, 2003 -- THAT before she left for Cologne, Germany, Madonna's people called the Cologne Hyatt Regency and said: "She must have Kabbalah water in her room" - sending the hotel into a tizzy trying to find the "mystical" liquid . . .

One thing before I open the PIAPS links: I-man was reporting that babawahwah was flying somewhere, first class, and when told her lunch selections, she requested that she be able to taste them all before choosing.

The sky waitress didn't think that that dog would hunt, so, in an "I'll show you" moment, baba declined to have anything to eat.

These people are just not really smart at all.

How can Mary Matilin sit in the same room as the Looney tune Clooney?

Representing Hollywood were George Clooney, Steven Soderbergh and the cast and crew of "K Street," an HBO series set to premiere this fall.

Representing Washington -- in the ninth-floor conference room of Edelman Public Relations, the K Street spin-doctors -- were image guru Mike Deaver and Democratic shouting head James Carville and his wife, Mary Matalin, Vice President Cheney's political adviser. About 20 folks in all were seated yesterday around a gleaming conference table with a plate-glass vista of downtown D.C.

"We're filming a television series about the procedure of government," Clooney told us. Director Soderbergh, Clooney's partner in Section 8, the production company for "K Street," fiddled with his hand-held digital camera. "We want to show how it really works," Clooney added. "This is not a political statement." [yeah, sure.]

....But is there an audience for, um, the procedure of government?

"I don't know," Clooney answered. "We'll find out." WP

This kind of thinking might explain the rousing success all his other movies have been. Geez, what a maroon.

I tuned in Hannity's show yesterday just in time to catch the last part of the hill screed, not knowing who it was. I thought it was Garafolo at a protest.

Re: hillary's book cover, I've been thinking. Won't feminists be angry that hillary opted for the young air-brushed hillary instead of being proud of who she really is and the experience it took her to get all the wrinkles and jowls?

Hillary Clinton is balking at spilling sordid secrets in her $8 million book -- and a behind-the-scenes war with her publisher is getting ugly!

The ENQUIRER has learned that Hillary's tardiness in finishing her White House memoirs is only half the story. The real battle is over what's going to be in the book -- and what's not.

"Simon & Schuster shelled out one of the biggest advances in history for the form-er First Lady to write a down-and-dirty tell-all," a well-placed publishing source told The ENQUIRER.

"At the time, the Clinton marriage seemed to be disintegrating and Hillary told them she'd be totally candid -- because she didn't expect to be married to Bill when the book came out.

"But the Clintons are somehow keeping their marriage afloat.

"So Hillary is backing away from writing a detailed account of Bill's sexual adventures -- from Arkansas to Monica -- and of her personal feelings.

"She now plans to turn the book into a sanitized version of her life, along with tips for women on how to hold it together while not tarnishing the ideals of feminism. [bwahahahahaha!]

"Instead of finally revealing the truth about her marriage, it looks like Hillary's book will be a whitewash.

"The folks at Simon & Schuster are livid -- and they've told her so."

Hillary's book was due to be on store shelves in August. To meet that deadline, the book had to be at the printers by May.

"But Hillary's not only late with her manuscript, she has no title for it!" the source added.

"With no manuscript and no title, there can be no marketing campaign and few advance sales."

But Hillary's not the only Clinton with a book problem.

Hubby Bill inked an even more stunning deal -- for $12 million -- and he hasn't even started writing yet!

"He needs his story to be in sync with whatever Hillary says -- and since she hasn't said anything yet, he can't get very far," said another publishing insider.

"By next year, there could well be two publishers with two very big gripes against two very troublesome Clintons." National Enquirer

"Publishers aren't immune, why shouldn't we screw them like we do everyone else?", said hillary. :-)

SEX-CRAZED Colin Farrell has set his roving eye on his new co-star -- Sean Penn's sexy wife, Robin Wright Penn! Full story

I'VE got the REAL scoop on why Monica Lewinsky backed out of an appearance on the hot new Fox morning show, Good Day Live. Bill Clinton's former squeeze was all set to promote her new Fox show Mr. Personality, but the day before her scheduled visit, Live hosts Steve Edwards and Jillian Barberie took some biting potshots at her. Steve mused: "Why IS Monica Lewinsky so famous?" And Jillian joked: "She's famous because she SERVICED the president of the United States!" Monica, 29, happened to be watching and became outraged. She abruptly canceled her appearance, with the flimsy excuse that she couldn't be up and ready by 9 a.m. -- it was too early. The next day, outspoken Jillian blasted Monica on the air: "If you're gonna have your own show, you need to get up and promote it! I plugged your handbag line -- the least you could do is show up!" Easy, ladies. Star

Who and/or what is Jefferson Jackson Bailey?

I didn't find anything that explained who and or what is JJB. But dims have a dinner/fundraiser there every year.

This from 2000:

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Vice President Al Gore will be the keynote speaker next Saturday at the state Democratic party's biggest annual fund-raiser, and some supporters of Bill Bradley are upset that the former New Jersey senator was not invited. About 1,200 people are expected to attend the Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey dinner at Southern Connecticut State University, said state party Chairman Ed Marcus, who is a leader of Gore's campaign in Connecticut. ''It's obvious (Marcus is) taking his candidate more seriously than his responsibility as chairman of the party,'' said Nick Paindiris, state coordinator of the Bradley campaign. Marcus said such accusations are ''nonsense'' and that he invited Gore to the dinner more than a year ago. (AP) Link

Ha, I'm laughing at Babs Walters thinking there was a "tasting menu" on airplanes. Surely she has more flying experience than that! Oh, to be a diva, or even a divette! All I know is that if you ask for a diet Sprite, they usually give you the whole can, but if you request a diet Coke, you get just a little plastic cupful. That's my frequent-flyer wisdom du jour.

BWB, I'll see what I can find on the now-dead FOBs. I've been covering a local trial all morning (interesting case - a man nearly decapitated by a construction crane counterweight) - so I'm just now beginning my usual daytime activities.

No motive for the shootings has been confirmed, but police said Berlin had fired Pecora's wife, Arlene, from her job as catering director at the Signature Grand banquet hall on Monday night. The men had been arguing since the firing, police said.

That's interesting. If they were partners, how did Berlin have the authority to "fire" his partner's wife from the business they jointly owned and operated? Maybe this isn't another of the x42-related "suicide by shotgun to the back of the head, twice"-type of incidents, after all! Do you have to be emotionally unstable to be a Dem supporter?

I didn't hear the medical testimony, but I'm guessing he died instantly.

More on the late Mr. Jerome "Jerry" Berlin:

In an interesting sidelight, Solomont confirmed the observation of a former finance chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Florida attorney Jerry Berlin, that Kerry was attracting significant contributions from Republicans. Berlin told the Forward that "a lot of the money John is getting" comes from "dear friends" of the late Republican Senator John Heinz, whose widow, Teresa, is married to Kerry. "Some are doing it because Teresa asked, some because they are at the liberal end of the Republican spectrum," Berlin said. source

Go ahead, you can tell me DUH! :-) When you said nearly decapitated, I thought, well... maybe...

You're so much better at searching than me. I didn't find anything close to what you found.

OUTSPOKEN antiwar celebs have been curiously quiet since the swift success of Operation Iraqi Freedom. But it looks like they're just biding their time for another major outburst.

Martin Sheen, Sean Penn, Janeane Garofalo, the Dixie Chicks, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon and others kicked up a huge fuss over the Iraqi invasion. They've all gone eerily silent. But "M*A*S*H*" star Mike Farrell, organizer of Artists United to Win Without War, says no one's hiding in shame.

In fact, he claims the "huge coalition" of peace-loving Hollywood types is gearing up for another battle over the administration of post-war Iraq and future "pre-emptive" strikes in other countries.

"What's the point of me saying anything right now, while they're in the end zone doing the dance and spiking the football?" Farrell told Reuters on Sunday. "They [White House officials and war supporters] are going to do the thing they are going to do, but we'll be heard from when it's appropriate and in the manner that is appropriate."

Garofalo, who made the talk show rounds with her anti-President Bush views before the war started, has lately refused most interview requests. But last week she claimed her unpopular stance has actually helped her career.

"Before this I was a moderately well-known character actress," she told the Washington Post. "Now, I'm almost famous."

A rep for Penn, who went on an embarrassingly ill-advised "fact-finding mission" to Iraq, said he isn't granting interviews. Sheen's publicist said the star, who riled his bosses at "The West Wing" with un-American utterings, is "not talking to anybody right now."

But Farrell notes: "The Dixie Chicks are back on the air, and their record is number one again. Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon are not going to stop making movies for a long time. Janeane Garofalo has a [TV] pilot going forward. These ugly-mouthed people [e.g., radio stations that yanked the Dixie Chicks] like to think they are more powerful than they are."

UCLA film and TV producers-program founder Prof. Howard Suber agrees we haven't heard the last of the Hollywood peace crowd. "To suggest they've been muzzled I think is bull," he says. "They've just got nothing to say. Once the deed is done there's nothing to say until the next time."

What a wonderful picture!! It sure shows up the lie of the "Americans are shooting Iraqis in the street" cries in the Arab media!

"We are Americans," she said. "We have the right to participate and debate any administration."

She didn't SAY any of this, she SCREAMED it! I can't listen to more than 3 seconds of that harridan.

I thought it was Garafolo at a protest.

Do you remember the thread about Janeane Garofolo being interviewed by Brian Kilmeade? There was an audio link, and before I knew who it was, I thought it was Hillary. They sound JUST alike!! No wonder I never liked to listen to Garofolo!

Janeane and Shrillary both have those lovely flat, monotone, droning voices (um, you know, um).

Public speaking isn't really their forte.

I know I'm not seeing things, but this is too much! Former NOW President Is YWCA's New CEO

I took swimming lessons at the downtown Pittsburgh YWCA when I was a kid, but have noticed in recent years that it seems to be all about feminism, diversity and the like. Even their website proclaims: "The YWCA of Greater Pittsburgh is a women's membership movement committed to the economic empowerment of women and girls and the elimination of racism." I don't know why they bother keeping that long since irrelevant "C" in their acronym any more.

Yuck. We only have a YMCA here, (Where I took swimming lessons as a kid) and they seem to have stayed on message.

There was a thread last year on FR about Hillary! not washing her hair. I was accused by some of being mean to Hillary!, after all she was so busy "serving" and "working" for the people. Please. I work in the computer industry, but I manage to have clean hair daily, and wear makeup. It doesn't take that long to put effort into looking nice. I think it just shows the contempt she has for people who she talks to.

And I've also been accused of being catty for talking about her appearance. For me, it is the whole package. Her appearance (bad at times with unkempt hair and no makeup) contrasts with her appearance for the masses on books, TV, etc. For me, everything about Hillary! and Bill are lies, including their appearance.
