6. I watch C-Span too for the majority!
I'm jealous that DISH is providing a HD channel for C-Span and DirecTV doesn't. :shrug: Oh well, can't have everything.

After Michelle's speech last night I switched to MSNBC in time to see the Scarborough/KO spat. Joe made a remark this morning about getting someone upset last night but I fell asleep before the Shuster incident.
