    CHICAGO - Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama on Friday blamed Bush Administration failings in Iraq for strengthening the strategic position of Iran, which he says must be stopped from acquiring nuclear weapons. Illinois senator said that means "direct engagement" with Iran similar to the meetings with the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War. "A consequence of the Administration's failed strategy in Iraq has been to strengthen Iran's strategic position; reduce U.S. credibility and influence in the region; and place Israel and other nations friendly to the United States in greater peril," according to a text of a...

    CNN) -- The Grammy Awards were nice to the Dixie Chicks, who won song of the year, a songwriter's award, for "Not Ready to Make Nice." The Chicks -- Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Robison -- shared the award with Dan Wilson, formerly of Semisonic and Trip Shakespeare. "I, for the first time in my life, am speechless," said Maines, who became a controversial figure in 2003 after making critical comments about President Bush. "Not Ready to Make Nice" was a response to the controversy; after Maines' comments, the Chicks' songs were pulled from a number of country music...

    I am absolutely high on a hi-octane cocktail of freedom, liberty, spirit, attitude, goodwill, defiance and positive energy. It is delicious and oh-so-healthy for an uncontrollable American Dream. My nearly 50-year gravity- and liberal-defying rhythm and blues rock ’n’ roll career would be fulfilling enough simply on a musical level. Add to the organic defiance factor of such a ferocious musical style, a lifetime of societal defiance against an overt left-wing hippie-dominated media, and I do believe I get more satisfaction from causing my brain-dead critics so much anguish with virtually zero effort. Thank you, God. I am truly a...

    Paris Hilton is no stranger to self-promotion. But when she asked DJs to play songs from her upcoming debut album, "Paris," last spring, she wasn't so confident. "People go crazy," the 25-year-old socialite/reality TV star/singer says in an interview in the September issue of Blender, on newsstands Tuesday. "They love it. Everyone's like, `Who is this?' I don't tell. Because I don't want someone putting their phone up and recording it and making a ring tone off of it. "I think when people don't know it's me, they won't judge it. But if they know it's me, then they'll be...

    Olbermann Denies Liberal Bias, Insists in Politics He's 'Neutral' During an appearance on Friday's Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann acknowledged accusations of liberal bias, but denied they were true, preferring to describe himself politically as "correct" and "neutral," without a "rooting interest" in who wins elections. Ignoring criticism from the MRC that, among other instances of bias during the 1998 Monica Lewinsky scandal, he once compared former Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr to Nazi war criminal Heinrich Himmler, Olbermann claimed that he was never accused of liberal bias while covering the scandal. Olbermann: "I've been...

    Mother's milk may be the healthiest food for babies, but is it art? Yes, according to Jess Dobkin, a lesbian mother and artist who will present her work Lactation Station Breast Milk Bar on July 13 at the Ontario College of Art and Design, the institution of higher learning that a few years ago brought you vomiting as performance art. The audience will be invited to sip during cocktail hours (5 to 8 p.m.) small cups of pasteurized breast milk donated by six lactating new mothers in the community. Dobkin has obtained a breast milk pasteurizer and will have the...

    Jessica Simpson snubs Bush Wed Mar 15, 2006 10:50 PM ET By Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Concerned about politicizing her favorite charity, singer-actress Jessica Simpson on Wednesday turned down a invitation to meet with U.S. President George W. Bush, a snub that left Republicans dismayed. The apparent final word that Simpson would be a no-show at a major Republican fund-raiser with Bush and congressional leaders on Thursday night came after a day of conflicting reports from her camp and organizers of the event. The blond star of the film "The Dukes of Hazzard" still plans to visit Washington...

    Monday, Sept. 26, 2005 7:39 p.m. EDT Bill Maher: Laura Bush Like 'Hitler's Dog' HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher compared First Lady Laura Bush to "Hitler's dog" during his Friday night cablecast, after flashing a parody photo of Mrs. Bush with a black eye, as if she'd been a victim of domestic abuse. After the photo display, Maher was challenged by guest panelist Christopher Hitchens, who told him: "It must be to [George Bush's] credit he got Laura Bush to marry him. She's an absolutely extraordinary woman." To that, Maher replied: "Oh, come on. That's like Hitler's dog loved...

    Pop star Moby, in an interview with Planet Out, a publication geared toward homosexuals, says he'd do everything he could to make his future child homosexual should the singer ever have a family.  The musician, who is not "gay," was lamenting so-called homophobia in society when he suggested his future child should be raised to be a homosexual. Moby continued with, "As a matter of fact, I was talking to my friend Laura, who sings on my record, and we're both getting to the point where we want to start families," Moby said.  "We're convinced that if we have...

    If an innate tenet of parenthood is to protect one's offspring, why does Joe Simpson insist on repeatedly tossing his youngest child to the wolves? ADVERTISEMENT That's Joe Simpson, father of the alarmingly untalented Ashlee Simpson. Ever since her lip-synching debacle last year on ''Saturday Night Live," the pop star wannabe has been a perpetual punch line, and the disparaging words grew even more ferocious after her screechy, off-key performance at the recent Orange Bowl halftime show. By the end of her song, ''La La," a spectacular chorus of boos rained from what sounded like a good portion of the...

    HOLLYWOOD has-been Chevy Chase lashed out at President Bush at a liberal love-in Tuesday night, calling the commander-in-chief a "dumb f - - k." Chase was master of ceremonies at People for the American Way's Defender of Democracy awards gala at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. But the organization got more than it bargained for when Chase went off the rails in a potty-mouthed rant, the Washington Post reports. "This guy in office is an uneducated, real schmuck," Chase fumed, "and we still couldn't beat him with a bore like [John] Kerry." He then joked about Cabinet changes,...

    (CBS) When Ashlee Simpson ran off the "Saturday Night Live" stage last week after her lip-sync gone awry, 60 Minutes cameras were there to record her embarrassing exit, and the reaction from show creator Lorne Michaels and other shocked SNL staff members. The exclusive of the incident will be part of a Lesley Stahl report about the making of the venerable comedy program, to be broadcast on 60 Minutes, Sunday, Oct. 31, at 7 p.m. ET/PT. In the now-notorious flap, Simpson had performed her hit single "Pieces of Me" without incident earlier on the show. When she came back to sing...
  • Melanie Griffith strikes out!

    As the Presidential Elections in the US draw closer, Hollywood stars' "Bush-Bashing" brigade seems to be expanding endlessly, with Melanie Griffith being the latest addition. According to the New York Post, Griffith has reportedly posted her anti- Bush views on her website, and has criticized Bush on numerous fronts. "I am a full-blown Democrat. I always have been. I did visit President George Bush Sr. [sic] and his wife when they were in the White House. However, I feel their son is in there without truly having won the election. I think he is a C-minus president. Don't you have...

    Ben Affleck don't got game. The Daredevil star has dropped out of Disney's Jerry Bruckheimer-produced hoops flick Glory Road over an apparent salary squabble. Affleck was supposed to play Don Haskins, the Texas Western coach who made history in 1966 when his college basketball squad became the first all-black team to win the NCAA national championship. The film was written by Chris Cleveland and will be helmed by commercial director James Gartner. The official line from Disney is that Affleck bowed out of the project due to scheduling issues. But, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Affleck bailed after failing to...

    Outspoken liberal comedian Whoopi Goldberg, who has served as the spokesperson for the weight loss product Slim-Fast since November, was summarily dropped by the company on Wednesday for her incendiary remarks regarding President George W. Bush at a Hollywood fundraiser on behalf of the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John F. Kerry (D-MA). In a statement, Slim-Fast General Manager and Vice President of Marketing Terry Olson announced that the Florida-based company does not condone the manner in which Goldberg conducted herself at the Kerry fundraiser that took place at Radio City Music Hall in New York last week and...

    Will this film make a difference in how people vote in this election? Michael says it will. Anybody who is sitting on the fence on which way to go, or anybody who is an Independent, after watching the film your vote won't likely be going to Bush. And he says it is not him (Moore) saying this; it is the people who have seen the film. Immediately after accepting the Award and leaving the stage, the first words spoken to you are from two interns. One offers and says, "Champagne?" The other says, "Breath mint?" Dave laughs and says, "You're...

    MONTREAL - Metallica are taking legal action against independant Canadian rock band Unfaith over what they feel is unsanctioned usage of two chords the band has been using since 1982 : E and F. "People are going to get on our case again for this, but try to see it from our point of view just once," stated Metallica's Lars Ulrich. "We're not saying we own those two chords, individually - that would be ridiculous. We're just saying that in that specific order, people have grown to associate E, F with our music." Metallica filed a trademark infringement suit against...
