Politically Savvy: Gutter Politics

As the election heats up more than ever and the primary season continues to drag on when it should have ended months ago, the campaigns are getting nastier. Both Clinton and Obama's campaigns have engaged in gutter politics – mud-slinging, name-calling, badmouthing, whatever you want to call it. Obama has accused Clinton of being untruthful,

OMG of the Day: Avril Lavigne to Debut Clothing Line

Avril’s new clothing line, Abbey Dawn, is set to show up at Kohl’s. The line is targeted toward juniors. I’m not sure how I feel about this. I’m not the biggest fan of Avril (and even less a fan of her music), but I do like how she’s cleaned up in the past year. She’s
