After last week, you’d think that Saturday Night Live would avoid lip synching for, I dunno’, a week or two anyway, but Eminem not only was clearly lip synching, he did a terrible job!
James Snell is angry that his vote for Bush won’t count, because he lives in California. (I mean, it will count, but California is considered a lock for Kerry.) If I still lived in California I’d be angry because my vote for Kerry wouldn’t count (I mean, it would, but it would be much less […]
