    Yep, I saw it in todays AM-NY. The usual, paying her to keep quiet I mean. I don't doubt that there is dirty laundry on the democrat side as well. Still, the republicans are self destructing. The inane reaching in many of their negative attack ads against democrats just goes to show how desperate they are (including the way John Kerry's remarks were twisted out of context.). Foley is still hiding in his rehab. Bush continues to act as though his admin isn't dysfunctional.
