Popular anti-Bush anti-American socialist, Harry Belafonte will be in the company of Hillary Clinton tomorrow at a charitable fundraiser.   Can't wait to hear her thoughts on Belafonte's comments with Hugo Chavez the other day.  But I'm not holding my breath.

Remember the Louisiana congressman who had the national guard take him to his house to pick up personal belongings?  Rep. William Jefferson's (D, La) congressional district includes New Orleans.  The FBI carted off cash from a freezer in his house and is the subject of a bribery investigation to which one of his aides has plead guilty today.  Look for this news in your local paper or in the MSM.  It won't be there.  Political corruption in Louisiana is only news if the perp happens to be Republican.
