This went over really well last week, which was great to see, considering that two News Flashes hit the main page just after the Headline of the Week thread. It'll be interesting to see the reaction this week. Hopefully Palin doesn't pull a beaded string from her nose or Obama slips and uses the "H" word or something. Although actually, those would be great too. Have I mentioned I can't wait for this election to be over?
