NewsBusters reports that Hollywoodies harbor big hopes that Geena Davis will accustom people to seeing a certain skirt (or should I say pantsuit?) as president with ABC’s new show Commander In Chief. Personally, I see Geena D and think Thelma, and we all know how that story ended! And how many of us will see “ABC” and will once again be reminded of “Anybody But Clinton”? Oh, well, bring it on. I have no interest in this show.

GETTING AHEAD FOR THE WEEKEND
Yeah, like THIS should surprise anyone. Whointhehell chooses Falkner for their summer reads?
Ooops! Jenny McCarthy is not potty trained.
Paris Hilton caught up in teen drugs and alcohol investigation. Quelle surprise.
Speaking of getting ahead ... $90G’s says that USA TODAY was wrong about Clinton. Think that guy is using a Clinton condom? HEY! Is that Dr. Phil??
Caring Communists: This is special in the annals of moral relativism, but I'm not even sure that term captures the bizzare argument implicit in an opinion piece by Richard Rhodes and Gwyneth Cravens in the Washington Post where they compare and contrast Katrina and Chernobyl.
I've been meaning to tell you that our gas prices began falling almost as soon as they peaked at $3.59 (the low end of the high prices) a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday the price hit $2.82. HOWEVER, yesterday one station, which led the way for "cheap" gas, had raised their price to $3.27! Can't wait to see what the prices are today. What are you paying for gas these days?
JET WHEW! JetBlue Flight 292, carrying 145 people, touches down in L.A. yesterday with fire shooting from its crippled landing gear. The plane had circled for three hours with the wheel set under its nose bent 90 degrees outward.
SCARELINE IS SAFE AND SOUND
A New York- bound airliner with a crippled landing gear made a fiery emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport last night, as millions of TV viewers across the country held their breath. For three hours, as JetBlue Flight 292 circled the skies over Southern California to burn off fuel, frightened passengers also watched the drama unfold, on inflight TV screens — listening to commentators speculate on the outcome.
But most passengers appeared calm and continued to watch the bizarre events until their screens went dark 10 minutes before the plane finally landed.

Welcome Autumnal Equinox!
Yesterday, Miss Snark posted that she has been called to jury duty. Miss Snark is a literary agent who lives and works in the exclusive 212 area code of NYC.
The following comments were posted:
I've heard several people say that they were dismissed from jury duty by claiming they listen to Rush Limbaugh.

I've heard several people say that they were dismissed from personhood and became vicariously addicted to painkillers by listening to Rush Limbaugh.

I've never heard anybody say they listen to Rush Limbaugh.

I knew I was taking a chance with my suggestion, inviting rude/crude nastiness from the lefties. The comments don't bother me, which is why I didn't leave a reply. I left my suggestion in case Miss Snark didn't want to do jury duty, because I've heard that some juries are asked if they listen to Rush, and the people who say yes are dismissed. Miss Snark's blog is a literary blog dealing with writing and the business of publishing. Similar literary blogs have been infested with personal politics which sour the sites. There are a few sites I no longer visit because of the politics. Maybe I was naive by mentioning Rush's name and thinking the statement was not of a political nature. The other two replies were nothing more than pettiness from political trolls.
WILL PIRRO MAKE HRC SWEAT FOR VOTES?
Is it possible that Monica's ex-boyfriend's wife will actually have to sweat for those votes? Which village of votes will she attempt to buy this time? Will the photogenic Pirro outshine Her Royal C?
NEW YORK VOTERS WON'T FALL FOR HILLARY'S DODGE
By DICK MORRIS
[N]ow that Jeanine Pirro has declared her candidacy, Hillary has a real fight on her hands.
Most senators can escape having to declare that they will serve out a full term. But Hillary can't because of the unique way she came to New York state. Had the first lady decided to run for senator in Delaware or Indiana or some such state, voters would have assumed she just moved in to run. But she moved to New York state and assured us all that she was vindicating a lifelong dream to move to the Big Apple.
Pirro will make her work hard and spend tens of millions of dollars.
And she might just beat Hillary. Which raises the question: Why is Hillary running for reelection to a job she wants to leave? New Yorkers will all be asking, so Hillary might want to ask herself.
IS IT FRIDAY YET?
I'll be watching Little H today ... last minute thing.
I found this Daily KOS poll via Conservative Grapevine. A few readers have told me that the KOS lefty-types do NOT like Her Royal C, and I guess they were right! Check out the comments on this poll at KOS.
TRAILER TALES: TRAILER parks are everywhere right now. Not only are the gurus of the trailer-park lifestyle, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, celebrating parenthood, but "The Great American Trailer Park Musical" is coming to New York's Dodger Stages later this month. To promote the play, the producers have been sending out dolls of a cigarette-smoking, baby-toting mom that says things like, "Make mine a double - I'm drinkin' fer two!" when you push the button on her pregnant tummy.
Tyra Banks' breasts are REAL, which might explain why she weighs 150 lbs.

How's this for a delicious bit of hypocrisy! Guess who's in the back seat of that SUV?
DRIVING MISS ARIANNA: I asked Antebi whether any of the staff at the Sierra Club headquarters owned and drove SUVs. He stumbled and said the group didn't keep track of who drove what. It's "a personal decision," he explained. "People drive different cars for different reasons."
Pat points out: By the way, do you know why Airiheadda is rich? She married a rich man, Michael Huffington, and later divorced him. Michael Huffington got his money from the family business established by his father, Roy M. Huffington. What sector of the economy was Roy M. Huffington, Inc., involved in? You guessed it, oil and gas!
Secretary General Bill Clinton? And then one day I woke up and Bill Clinton was running the world!
