Lindsay Lohan was allowed by a judge Friday to stay at Betty Ford's rather than be returned to jail. She reportedly loves the rehab. Lindsay never got to go to college and date fraternity boys her age, and now she has them all to herself for twenty-eight days.
GOP House Minority Leader John Boehner predicted Monday that the GOP will take back Congress and deal with the bad economy. Someone needs to fix the thing. In the last two years fifty million Americans have had to switch brokers, from stock to pawn.
Jerry Brown opened up a big lead in the California governor's race Monday. He's running ads reminding voters he's a known quantity while admitting he can be quirky. Only Jerry Brown could govern a state where they legalize pot and outlaw plastic bags.
President Obama drew a huge crowd to his Los Angeles rally Friday. Many stars were seated onstage behind him. The president reminded the crowd that under him a Hispanic woman has become a judge on the highest court in the land, and Jennifer Lopez stood and took a bow.
President Obama's bipartisan Debt Reduction Commission meets Friday. If they try to end personal deductions it'll never pass Congress. Most politicians in Washington D.C. use the standard mistress deduction, as opposed to Bill Clinton, who has to itemize.
