Since the Mid-terms It's just been one thing after another for the DUmmies.

Bushes book is having real nice sales.

Sarah Palin's Alaska set ratings records for TLC (more viewers in 1 night than queef and mandow get in a week)

Bristol still on DWTS

Obama is giving Bush 41 a Medal of Freedom Award

The Gawker tells Sarah to have her lawyer explain "fair use", so she did and the judge ordered them to pull the book excerpts.

But now it's war...

Jobs and Murdoch Prepping iPad-only Daily Newspaper

Source: PC Magazine

Rumors are circling that News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch is teaming up with Apple CEO Steve Jobs to launch a new digital-only newspaper. Dubbed, "The Daily," the iPad project will allegedly stream right a user's device seven days a week for the fairly low price of $0.99 per week, or roughly $4.25 monthly.

According to an article by Women's Wear Daily, "The Daily" will look to cover national news—a "tabloid sensibility with a broadsheet intelligence" that's fun to read, but nevertheless serious in its newsgathering mission.

10. And Google and Microsoft, because after the iPad it goes to their devices.

So good luck with that boycott.
