News You Can't Use

Posted: Updated:

From the Department of News Headlines I Didn't Need to Read Past comes this gem from an AP story by Hope Yen:

"Gingrich Says Hillary Clinton Is Beatable"

Gee, thanks, AP! What next: "Pitt Says Angelina Jolie Looks Good Naked"?

That loud hissing sound you hear is a collective "Shhhhhh!" coming from all the GOP presidential hopefuls salivating at the prospect of a Hillary-led Democratic ticket in 2008.

PS I actually couldn't help myself and went ahead and read the story (what can I say, I'm to politics what Pete Doherty is to smack -- a stone cold junkie). My favorite quote: Gingrich saying of a Hillary presidential run, "If we beat her we're going to beat her with better ideas. We're not going to beat her with some kind of negative campaign." Sure thing, Newt. So make a note all you black-cloaked, vast right wing conspiracy op-researchers out there, better start searching early... your services won't be needed.
