OK, great.  So, uh, anything about her policies, peeps?  Anything?  Hello?  Is this thing on?

Why even put cnn on your RSS?  Weekly World News is about as useful, and funnier.

Because I like to know what I'm meant to be thinking.

Its essentially the same reason The Sun is on my RSS feed as well, only at least CNN doesn't have a writing style purposefully designed to be understandable by nine year olds, the average mental age of a Sun reader.

Policies and decisions don't matter.  Obstructionism matter.  Stop hating America.

but CNN has no BEEWBZ!!!!
This is why we have FOX news. It's what old porn stars do now, so there's plenty of beewbz.

Yeah, I looked at CNN the other day and went, 'wtf? This is news?' Horray for empty chatter.
One for sorrow,
Two for joy,
Three for a girl,
Four for a boy,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for a secret never to be told.
