Claire McCaskill replacing Howard Dean as the next chair of the Democratic National Committee? Don’t tease Dan from Gone Mild.

My favorite conservative blogger the Kansas Meadowlark takes a look at the 2008 version of Republicans for Dennis Moore.
Skip over to my boy Jason Harper’s Wayward Blog for a seriously insightful interview with New Kid Jonathan Knight. Seriously. Hearing fat-ass, child molesting boy band mogul Lou Pearlman called a “scumbag” never gets old.
