Special Report

Judge Reverses Connecticut Clothing Ban

And now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine:

Point of View

Things are getting heated in the Nevada Senate race and not just between Democrat Harry Reid and his Republican opponent Sharron Angle.

During "The View" talk show Tuesday, co-host Joy Behar raised eyebrows saying of Angle -- quote: "She's going to hell, this [b-word]." Today, Behar's reaction to a special delivery moved the story along.

JOY BEHAR, 'THE VIEW': This morning, I get these flowers from Sharron Angle. And I mean, I look -- it's a brassiere moment. And it says, "Joy, raised $150,000 online yesterday. Thanks for your help. Sincerely, Sharron Angle."

(CROSSTALK)

Well I don't know if it's a sense of humor. But I'd like to point out those flowers were picked by illegal immigrants. And they are not voting for you, bitch.

Of course by law, illegal immigrants are not supposed to be voting.

Bragging Rights

A federal judge has smacked down a top election official's ban against wearing World Wrestling Entertainment clothing to Connecticut polling stations Tuesday. District Judge Janet Bond Arterton issued an order that requires the Connecticut secretary of state not to apply state election laws regarding political advertising to WWE fans.

Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon is the former CEO of the wrestling company. Husband Vince McMahon filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking to stop local election workers from asking WWE fans to cover any wrestling gear at the polls.

Bad Reputation

And finally, a small town in Oregon will vote next week on whether to change its name from Detroit to Detroit Lake. Some residents say they get a bad rap because of Detroit, Michigan's problems.

One Motor City blog, as you can imagine, was not pleased, writing -- "Like adding the word 'Lake' is going to clear anything up. How about you go ahead and change your city's name to 'Tourist Trap' and see how that works out?"
