Weekend Trimmings

Here's Gervais' trimmings from the MSM over the weekend... enjoy!

The Dixie Stampede must be booked:

Thousands could be flocking to the Palace Theater in Myrtle Beach. Not for a broadway production or a big stage play but to be broadcast, around the world, the final Democratic presidential debate before South Carolinians vote next January.

This just sounded nice:

Congaree National Park is seeking volunteer "citizen scientists" of all ages to help with the park's annual Butterfly Count. The 2007 Congaree National Park Butterfly Count will be held on Saturday, June 30, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. at the Harry Hampton Visitor Center.

“Queen” of all trades:

Laurin Manning is taking a break from law school to work as Democratic Senator Barack Obama's jack-of-all trades in South Carolina, earning about $2,300 a month. Her office walls are bare and her title not yet settled. The 26-year-old Manning says she's doing a little bit of everything, politics, communications and policy liaison. She had worked on Virginia Senator Jim Webb's successful campaign one week last year.

Cobb-Hunter sounds off on the budget:

“I believe that (the Senate version) is more fair to a greater number of working people. The House version would have given money back to the top 2 percent as opposed to the Senate version, which is bottom-up… I have always favored relief for working people,” [Rep. Gilda Cobb-Hunter] said.
