Another Big News Weekend

I don’t know where to begin.

So much happened this weekend that the mind just reels.

Bill and Hillary Clinton married off their Chelsea in spectacular fashion in a very posh but private ceremony on an estate in New York’s Hudson Valley. The bride, they say was beautiful, and the wedding cake is estimated to have cost somewhere between $4,000 and $25,000 depending, they say, on the price of one piece.

Lindsay Lohan was released from jail in Los Angeles in the wee hours of Monday morning after spending either 13 or 14 days in the slammer (depending on whether you count Monday as one day). She was immediately whisked away to a court-ordered 90-day stint in rehab at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. No one really knows, though, what the former child star is rehabbing from.

And talk about a turnstile, as Lindsay Lohan leaves jail Charlie Sheen enters the courtroom today to to face felony and assault charges stemming from a much-publicized incident between Sheen, son of Martin Sheen, and his wife, Brooke.

And not to be outdone by the only child of President Clinton and Secretary of State Clinton, Alicia Keys and her newest heartthrob Swizz Beatz tied the knot in a wedding by the Mediterranean Sea. And it seems that Ms. Keys and Chelsea Clinton share a common taste in wedding attire, since both chose a gown designed by Vera Wang.

Making me wonder about what it is about the GOP. Are they completely clueless about what is truly newsworthy in this country? They even made a short video about Obama on "The View" mentioning Snooki, and the ladies on the view chanting “GTL, GTL.” GTL is a "Jersey Shore" theme that translates "Gym, Tanning, Laundry." In their opinion, Obama should be discussing the GDP and not GTL.

Another clear indicator that the Republican Party is completely clueless about what Americans are concerned about.
