  • Jon needs to take a look at my post 30 things in 30 years.

    But honestly, he needs to shut up already. This is the kind of stuff that is really going to mess with the heads of his kids for decades - I should know. The old adage, "if you can't say something nice say nothing" comes to mind.

    •  He told ABC that his relationship with Kate Gosselin is so bad that they have to film their TLC show

      "I can't sit on the sofa with that woman," he says in the interview, posted online today. "I can't sit on someone
      right now that I despise."

       Why does he despise her? Read on...

      "I despise [her] because she's not speaking from the
      heart," Jon said in the interview. "Please -- the stuff you
      tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV."
      Kate released a statement to ABC News that proves she has way more media training than Jon Boy. 
      Kate says: "While I certainly have a very different perception of how our marriage dissolved, for the sake of my children I maintain that I'm not going to go into details of aspects I believe should remain private."

      Jon is content with new girlfriend Hailey Glassman, whom he calls "the
      polar opposite of Kate."

       "I get encouragement from her, I get respect from her.
      Two things that a man needs," he says.

      Yeah, that’s because she’s a girlfriend, Jon, not your wife, who was trying to raise eight children and run a household and do a TV show.  And -- duh -- Hailey is also 22.

  • I don't think "having the votes" is a good enough reason to push something through before we really know all of the implications! This is one where we need to slow down.

    • While White House spokesman Robert Gibbs today refrained from telling reporters whether President Obama in his speech Wednesday night will set a deadline for passing health care reform, sources tell ABC News that in his private meeting with Democratic congressional leaders this afternoon the key word was urgency.

      The president told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., that it is important for them to pass health care reform bills soon, the sources said.

      Both leaders told the president that despite the difficult rough and tumble of the legislative process in the last few weeks, they are optimistic that both the House and Senate can pass health care reform legislation.
