But he did make time to sit down with EXTRA’s Mario Lopez for a one on one … Yes, we know what we’d be hearing if it were Gov. Palin who wasn’t holding pressies. On a related note, has yet another television station been blackballed by the Obama campaign?

This is such sad, sad news. Barnett, who suffered from cystic fibrosis, was one of a kind. I didn’t know him online, but I linked to what he wrote frequently. He was tireless and fearless – and had a great sense of humor. He’ll be missed by a lot of people. Hugh Hewitt has a […]
