    He announced via Twitter? How nice that he thinks of Twitter as the mainstream media.

    I am announcing via CNN that I won't vote for Newt Gingrich.

    Does not surprise me you announcing everything on CNN. Like I said before you are always spouting out your personal nonsense. And ur gang of buddies are sickening. You need to go to a chatroom or start your own personal blog.

    One thing for sure, he's one of the smartest of either party. His personal life not withstanding, he would make an excellant choice for these bad times.

    So Obama thinks Oprah and SNL is the mainstream media. I would rather see Zell Miller running than Newt Gingrich though.

    Since my last post was moderated I'll rephrase it. I agree with Micheal the rest of us are tired of having to scroll through a bunch of personal posts that have nothing to do with the topic, you know who you are if your doing it. Stop already.

    I know she's married, but I want her to be my beard.

    I guess what I'm saying is that -'m announcing that I'm coming out of the closet.
