I Didn't Vote For Him

But he finally did the right thing when it comes to rejecting a request for clemency/pardon. That's right the Governator has said he will not consider Hilton's request for a pardon. Let this be the end of it.

In other areas, has anyone seen how CNN's Headline News is treating this? They have a countdown clock going and have a host of talking heads discussing ever aspect, including her psychiatric status. I'm guilty of this to an extent, but this madness has to stop. If I was a conspiracy theorist, I would think that Paris Hilton is a red herring by the establishment to divert the public's attention much like the bread and circuses of the Roman Empire.

We could be talking about a host of other issues including, but not limited to, whether the Democratic lead congress is taking the right course by holding up funding, the trial of the alleged terrorist going on in Florida, and whether there is cause to be alarmed by recent pronouncements from the Kremlin (and you thought the Cold War was over).

But the best we can do in the U.S., apparently, is to read foreign news outlets since our own are obsessed with Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and Lindsey Lohan.
