Ah, a nice catchy title for tonight's post. Tedi B. here, and I'm sitting in for Julie tonight. I'll give you the, not so detailed, run down of tonight's show. It was okay but lacked that certain something....that certain something being in India, apparently (see the end of the post!).
Also, before we begin I'd like to thank Wonz for the caps tonight. Let's all give her a bow!
-John King was in again for AC and began the program with a story of an American contractor, Chris Turner, who helped save others by fighting the Taliban in an attack they executed in a U.N. safe house. Michael Ware talked about the story and interview the American, Chris Turner.
-Are you sick of hearing about getting sick? Seems, as Randi Kaye reports, there's a lot of misinformation about H1N1 floating around the net. That's probably because people listen to the hype about things instead of researching it for themselves. I suppose it's up to each of us to make an informed decision about getting the vaccine. The important word in that sentence being "informed". Dr. Gupta came on again to answer a few more questions about the H1N1 and gave us the startling info that potentially over 1/2 the country may be infected with the swine flu this season!
-The Economy is getting better! John talked with Christina Romer about the growth. We've seen a 3.5% increase in the economy but leave it to the Republicans to look on the not so sunny side of that fact. As, Wanda Sykes noted it's nice that Obama has given the country CPR. Man, I can't believe that he hasn't done more yet! He hasn't saved the world? Gotten rid of nuclear weapons? Solved the poverty Issue? Gotten rid of bigotry? Boy, Obama is slacking. Get with it, Barack!
-More on Sarah Palin. (Can you tell I'm thrilled?). Apparently, she is campaigning against the Republican candidate in a New York race and backing the conservative party candidate. Is that really weird? She' more conservative than a black suit at board meeting. Puleese! Anyway, John spoke with Paul Begala and David Frum about it.
-Finally up was an interview with Wanda Sykes. Her speech at this year's correspondent's dinner left some speechless but I enjoyed it! How many people can talk about the President's nipples and get away with it?
-We didn't clip the shot tonight because it really wasn't that funny but it did show some animals with pumpkins. 'Tis the Season for gourds!

I'm sure most of you received multiple alerts today about where Anderson is spending at least part of his vacation. From the NY Post's Page Six to OneIndia.com the big news of the day is Cooper is staying at the Rambagh Palace Jaipur near Rajasthan, India. Here are a few pictures of the property.
