Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine:
A mostly conservative audience turned out last night in Washington at the Media Research Center's annual "Dishonors Awards" for what it calls the most outrageously biased liberal reporters of 2006.
The "God I Hate America Award" went to New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr., who apologized to students at the State University of New York for all of the wrongs of America.
The "Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis" went to Katie Couric for a "60 Minutes" interview with Secretary of State Rice, in which Couric quoted her daughter commenting on U.S. foreign relations by saying, "who made us the boss of them?"
The "I'm Not a Political Genius but I Play One on TV" award went to Rosie O'Donnell for saying that 9/11 caused America to invade two countries and kill innocent people, and for comparing radical Christianity to radical Islam.
And the "Tin Foil Hat Award for Crazy Conspiracy Theories" went to CNN's Jack Cafferty for suggesting the Bush administration might be coordinating with Usama bin Laden.
Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani says if he ends up in the White House, his wife might end up in some cabinet meetings.
Giuliani tells Barbara Walters tonight on ABC's "20-20" that he would be comfortable with wife Judith Nathan Giuliani sitting in on cabinet sessions if they were relevant to something that she is interested in. Mrs. Giuliani, who was a nurse, said she would go to the meetings if asked, especially if they concern health care.
Kucinich's Reverse Course
Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich has sent an e-mail to supporters sharply criticizing the campaign tactics — of his own campaign.
The Kucinich camp had e-mailed followers Wednesday asking them to volunteer for his "eyes and ears project," which would monitor other campaigns to check their accuracy and marketing tactics. But just a day later, Kucinich sent another e-mail telling supporters to disregard the request.
"I believe such tactics are spiritually and politically counterproductive," he wrote. 'Monitoring' projects are inherently pretentious, divisive and mean-spirited and have no place in a campaign which desires to change the world for the better."
Actor and aviation enthusiast John Travolta says global warming is a very valid issue and that we should consider going to other planets or putting domes over our cities. But the Evening Standard of London reports Travolta conceded that, "I'm probably not the best candidate to ask about global warming because I fly jets."
In fact, Travolta has five private planes — including his own Boeing 707 — and keeps them at his home in Florida. The paper reports that in the past 12 months Travolta has flown about 30,000 miles, producing around 800 tons of carbon emissions, nearly 100 times the amount coming from an average person.
Gitmo Detainees Huge Harry Potter Fans
The camp librarian says the prisoners can't wait for book No. 7 to come out later this year. So she says the camp has already pre-ordered the next installment.
The library offers the prisoners the choice of one book each week, though they're allowed to keep a copy of the Koran.
