It was reported on this weekend that a woman will testify that she had a three-way with Kelly and the underaged woman shown in the tape. Robby is still arguing that it wasn’t him in the tape. Hmmm, it looked like you to me! I smell a BET special. {MTV}

Here in America, yesterday was the day that Democratic party candidates, who shall now be known as HilBama, took it all to tv. I will say this only once: don’t be surprised if McCain wins. Be upset, but not surprised. {CNN}
