Shut up about Nagin and Clinton

Really now -- how important is this story considering everything else going on right now?

CNN, which is rapidly becoming Fox Lite, had a lower-third banner on this morning which read "Chocolate-Gate". Uh-huh. Just so you know, CNN is hiring right-wing extremist and very Aryan-looking talk radio asshole Glenn Beck to host his own show. The same idiot who said:

"And that's all we're hearing about, are the people in New Orleans. Those are the only ones that we're seeing on television are the scumbags."

Meanwhile, we all completely overlooked a Bush gaff from Monday.

On Monday, Bush viewed the original copy of Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation and said, "Abraham Lincoln recognized that all men are created equal." Trouble is, Bushie, "all men are created equal" is a quote from the Gettysburg Address and NOT the Emancipation Proclamation. But you know, the president shouldn't need to know this.
