Gore incoming!
Al Gore will make his Obama endorsement tonight at 8:30 p.m. from a rally in Detroit. The endorsement will be streamed live on BarackObama.com. Gore has already penned a fundraising email for the campaign.

UPDATE: And here it is. It should be added that Gore risked nothing with this post-nomination endorsement, but it's a nice thing for Barack to have, particularly given Gore's popularity with the Democratic base (including here in "Florida, Florida, Florida" -- with props to the late Tim Russert ...) and his credibility on issues like climate change. Besides, by doing the endorsement in Michigan, Gore helped Barack's team collect maybe 20,000 more Michigan names and email addresses for the November ground game. And that's change we can believe in.

Quick take headlines: Thursday as Monday
What a strange thing it is to have a day off in the middle of the week ... it's enough to make Thursday feel like a Monday. Oh well ... here's what-a-gwan:

Conversations:

Al Gore to Tipper: "Well, at least the boy was in a Prius..." (after his son gets pinched for possession of marijuana, Xanax, Adderol, Soma and more. And just days before daddy's 7-7-07 global warming concert? Duuuude...

Venus Williams to Maria Sharapova: "Thwak!"

Fort Lauderdale's mayor to gay men: "No sex in the champagne room public restroom!" Cue the robot toilet!!!

Robert Novak to Valerie Plame and her husband Joe Wilson: screw you.

Historian to Bush: you're no Harry Truman.

Close calls?

A man is arrested outside Barack Obama's hotel in Iowa holding an eight-inch knife. Scary, with shades of Bobby Kennedy, or a security detail overacting? I hope for the latter but fear the former is more on the money.

Untruths?

The British government says the idea that the eight doctors and others who were arrested in the recent attempts at creating 'splosions at Glasgow and London airports were al-Qaida isn't quite accurate... now THIS is al-Qaida, if you still believe they are the boogeyman the administration wants you to believe they are...

Not so smart?

Some Iraq war protesters are pulling a thoreau and withholding federal taxes. Good luck with that one...

Quick take headlines: Tuesday blues edition
BREAKING: Foxy Brown says she was dragged off the potty by The Man at that Pembroke Pines beauty shop. Film at 11.

A judge says, "now usually I don't do this but ... go ahead and color in the courtroom, killer pedophile..."

Antonella Barbara may not be able to sing worth a damn on "American Idol," but right now, she's the most famous Idol ever...!

Hugo Chavez pulls the plug on nearly a half dozen foreign oil co's.

Where have all the honeybees gone?

ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff is back, and he has a cause: telling the stories of wounded Iraq and Afghan war veterans.

For former Vice President Al Gore, it's Oscar! Oscar! Oscar!

Dubya and the governors spat over who should pay for child healthcare. Do the governors really want cheese-eating socialist universal healthcare? Pray, tell!

A member of the Scooter Libby jury is dismissed, but the deliberations go on. ... I wonder if it had anything to do with her refusing to wear a festive, pink shirt on Valentine's Day? And what about that alternate... hm???
