commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Is Jon and Kate Plus 8 over?…….nah!….not yet!

This is the latest today……..TLC is trying to get the last drop out the couple, and their children….

Kate Gosselin is being filmed solo ( what about the bodyguard? )……in additon, the cable channel will go back, and splice togther footage they had ‘in the can’ of their family…which should give them a few more shows……..

Finally……Kate is working on two projects of her own that most probably get her a show……and Jon is still under contract to TLC…….

The Senate Finance Committee version of the The Healthcare Bill gets the CBO blessing, and we're off to the races!

Today was a good day for the Democrats in Congress, and the White House. The chance for early passage of a Healthcare bill has measurably improved……..

Today the Congressional Budget Office pointed out that the bill, as it stands, will cost less than $900 Billion, it would extend coverage from the 83% of Americans, to 94%, it would keep the Presidents pledge of no increase in the budget, in fact, it would save money in the bottom line, by tens of billions of dollars …..

In addition, the White House has invited House Republican’s in to confer on the bill, along with Aftghlnisan………

The Republicans, who have fought the administration every step of the way, now find themselves forced to play ball, realizing that several of it’s members are probably going to get sweetened offers for votes,  just like what happened a few months ago, when the White House got the Stimulus BIll pasted…..

I have said here several times ….The bill will be pasted with bipartisan support..

Anything else would be bad politics……

Do single women prefer men in relationships?

I wasn’t gonna do a post this afternoon…but while scanning the New York Times on the net’ I came up on this piece and I had to post it…….

Single women are always getting involved with attached guys…Lettermen, Jon Gosselin, Bill Clinton, various state governor’s…..Why?….Is it the pre-tested thing?…Is it the, I’m gonna take him from her thing?….Is it the, he’s got a job thing?….Or, is it the he’s powerful thing?

I don’t know…but the question is interesting…….

Comments….anyone?

You know Bloomberg could lose………

This piece on the fact that  a recent Survey USA poll has Bloomberg only 8 points ahead  (the MOE is a whopping 4.2% ) of his Democratic opponent, City Controller William Thompson …..and the fact that there are a lot of people out there angry at his switching of the term limits rules, so that he could run for a third time…….if the issue is a sleeper Bloomberg could be in for big surprise……$64 million, and a possibility that he’s only less than 4% points up (with the MOE factor) on Thompson, means that something isn’t going right for the Mayor…

Note: Bloomberg calls himself an Independent these days…but will run on both the Ind and GOP lines……
