Nothing adds credibility to the left than posting wild internet conspiracies and political dribble on a hollywood/celebrity news blog.

Thanks to people like Che, we just might see the Republicans hold onto the House and Senate.

RE: Madonna's adoption. I wish people would stop using the term 'racist' until they're absolutely sure that it is unequivocably apparent to be so. I am non-white and I have experienced a lot of racial discrimination but I still consider throwing the word 'racist' around indiscriminately hurts and trivializes the real racial problems/issues which we all need to solve. I believe people are actually downright mean about Madonna's adoption but this meanness may really stem from other stuff other than racism. Madonna has a lot of sympathizers like me (who is not necessarily a Madonna fan but applaud her desire to improve the lot of a poor abandoned child), she should just keep cool and exercize some 'grace' amidst all the to-do. It will all fade with the next news cycle.

If Che is representative of the Democrat Party thought processes I think I will change my votes to an entire Republican Party slate. Rampant paranoia in government office is something to be avoided at all costs.

If this last post of Che's does not violate the posting standards then nothing ever will.

Che is merely giving voice to what we all feel, namely, that Madonna's "adoption" of young David Banda is a clearly a shameless attempt to divert the celebrity spotlight away from K-Fed and Brangelina and return it to himself, and rightly so. After all, we live in a world in which people think that paying $900 a ticket means they can throw drinks at Barbra Streisand while ignoring what is clearly a link between the fact that Topher is dating Ivanka and Ivana is drinking again. It's all clear to me now.
I think the Hallowe'en sugar is kicking in.

I think Che was just expressing his disgust after reading the double-entendre'd "Clint Eastwood slams Paris Hilton"....

I highly doubt Topher is dating Ivanka. If you know what I mean. And I think you do.

And not to give any more attention to the problem, but if someone seriously changes their vote just because of what one idiot posts on the interwebs and not because of, oh, I don't know, doing research on candidates and forming opinions on issues, then said person should not be allowed to vote.

I have had my doubts about the whole 'Madge adopts' from whisper one. NOT because of the child himself, but because she seemed to be throwing money at this, and due to her money and celebrity was allowed to subvert a nation's adoption laws. Race has NOTHING to do with it. I still object to it because everyday people who would make fabulous parents are not allowed to adopt without miles of red tape, interviews, home studies, and money we don't have.
An equal adoption process doesn't seem like too much to ask to see children go to safe, loving homes.

Ah, Ewwwwwww, you beat me to the Topher and Ivanka thing. I love me some Ivanka, remember her on Project Runway?! Such a doll, she's too good to be pulled into the Topher/Vince/Travolta/Gyllenhaal world.
Madonna. Madonna. Madonna.
Is Prince old enough to have a Vegas show? While I'm looking forward to seeing it (dancing girls and boys; disappearing tigers; midget acrobats; a finale featuring Vanity, Appolonia, Diamond, Pearl, Carmen Electra, Sheila E, Wendy AND Lisa), I can't help but think that it's too early. Give me 10 more years and I'll be ready.
I'm so tired of Anna Nicole's baby. I think Birkhead (am I the only one laffing at his name?) should just kidnap it, if he wants it so bad.
