Hey, Jonny...it's a good thing Pickle didn't get booted on time to get invited to the dinner in DC last night. She's have asked, "What a cor.rez.PON.daint?"

Hey...OF...I know you are an AI fan...because we have talked about it...and I wondered why I never saw you post on the the AI thread...darn, I could have pinged you a long time ago...

BTW..jonny, did you see my suggestion I posted on the AI thread, that they should have one week be "patriotic songs"??

Actually, it would have been better a few weeks ago, when Bucky and Kellie were still on, because there are some great country patriotic songs...but, the ones that are left could really do a great job...I think.

I don't care what the business man sold to make his money. He worked for it and it ought to be his to leave to whomever he wishes when he dies.

That Gate's father is out there bashing estate tax reform is disgusting.

The super rich have ways around taxes and I resent their efforts to enhance the government's ability to get their hands on other people's money.

We watched on the TV's in the Hilton's bar. We saw the audience shots and NOBODY laughed in most shots. Very few good jokes.

We were leaving and outside when a siren was heard and I said, "That must be the ambulance for Colbert's career, it's dying..." And the whole corner laughed, especially those who were attendees.

Not only that, but he paid taxes on it while he was alive and earning it. Estate taxes are double taxation on the same income and property.

Not only that, but she'd be the only person in the room who thinks Colbert is funny...precisely because she doesn't get the jokes.

How about Colbert's mannerisms when he did Scalia? It was simply unbelievable. Was Scalia actually there to witness that?

Actually, that was the funny part. Just when you thought he was done, he'd launching into another flurry of hand gestures. Scalia looked like he was going to loose it trying not tp laugh too hard. It didn't look like Scalia took it as much of an insult.

They did a very moving patriotic theme the year Josh Gracin was on as our troops were invading Iraq. Josh led the group in singing.

BTW, I watched the latest episode of Nashville Star last night and I'm in love. That Casey Rivers has one wonderful voice. Wow! His rendition of 'How Great Thou Art' was fabulous. Just the kind of guy I was hoping to see on AI -- good looking and with a powerful voice. I guess that other young guy on NS, Chris Young, is the favorite to win, and he's OK. But I'm enthralled with Casey and hope he makes a CD.

LOL....we actually have a neighbor who got rich selling sterilized poop to use as plant fertilizer. He sold them on Home Shopping Network. I kid you not!

It was his idea, he got it done, he sold it, and the money he made ought to be his. No doubt he paid big time taxes since the sales went thru HSN and are recorded.

Doocy was in a cab with 3, maybe 4 people. One of whom was an older woman. Perhaps they are all tougether based on who invited who?

Two years ago, Doocy walked to the event.

Didn't they do patriotic stuff when they had the marine from California on. I can't remember. Boy did Simon dislike that guy. He actually made a recording and I saw him on the Country Music station one time.

Snicker...you realize she how fully expects -- no, demands -- to win this thing now that Seacrest told her she and Chris got the highest number of votes last week.

Didn't someone on the AI thread post the story of how her dad went up to confront the judges after her performance last week? Sheesh! The whole family seem to be demanding she win. Ugh!

Oh, so that's how she keeps staying on. Her family has an organization to collect votes. She is so awful that I've wished there was an option to call in to vote someone off.

THE PRESIDENT AND HIS ALTER EGO WERE AWESOME LAST EVENING and so was Wolfstar and the entire DOSE family: 1,282 comments and 22,536 views. CONGRATULATIONS!!!


BTW: Colbert got only one thing right last night . . .

"At the Bloomberg News post-show party, with guests including Desperate Housewives star James Denton, ER's Maura Tierney, Terence Howard, Ron Silver and others, COLBERT was almost the last person to arrive. He seemed pleased with his performance.

"I had a great time. THE PRESIDENT KILLED. HE'S A TOUGH ACT TO FOLLOW -- AT ALL TIMES. IT'LL BE TOUGH FOR WHOEVER COMES IN 2008, TOO." [Yes it will, Mr. Colbert, yes it will!]
http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2006-04-30-bush-dinner_x.htm?csp=34


[I'll return later this evening to post my MUST READS!]

One of my other favorite moments what the Reagan film - when Nancy came up to the podium with Ron and he kept asking her to say some nice things about the press - I laughed so hard.

Repubs really do have a better sence of humor. I thought Colbert was a bomb!
