Gossip Roundup: Delay, Dunst, Disney, Diana, Douglas and Dean

Heard on the Hill: Girl Scouts lobby for promotion of healthy eating, sell cookies. Legislators have fine eye for irony: "Considering I get fat just looking at them, I thought that was somewhat humorous. "Rep. Clay Shaw (R-Fla.) just can’t get enough of Caddyshack. (Think it's the drug humor or the poo jokes?) In the official calendar for constituents, "today in history" refers to 1804: problems in Haiti, the impeachment trial of Judge Pickering (John), and President Jefferson's request to increase military funding to guard against pirates. "The difference between then and now is that the pirates now control the White House," jokes one Democratic aide while Jonathan Grella, spokesman for Majority Leader Tom Delay (R-Texas), predicts the future: "November 9, 2004: A week after a taxing defeat, a curiously taut Kerry picks up the pompoms and joins co-star Kirsten Dunst in Bring It On II: Botox Boogaloo."

Inside the Beltway: Bush and Kerry are 9th cousins twice removed. Their very extended family includes, among others: Walt Disney, Michael Douglas, Clint Eastwood, the Wright brothers, Hugh Hefner, Princess Diana, Howard Dean, Benedict Arnold, and John Hinckley Jr. [WT]

Inside Politics: Vincent Gallo on seeing photos of President Clinton in Hollywood homes: "I seen more pictures of him, you know, the autographed photos, with like these sleazy babes. I mean pictures of a former president with two of these babes hanging on him. Can you imagine going to someone's home and seeing a picture of Nixon with two hookers?" (You're one to talk, Vince). . . John Kerry scores the endorsement of North Korea's infamous communist dictator Kim Jong Il, who hopes a Democratic administration would be softer on his country's nuclear program. . . Matthew Cooper, White House correspondent for Time, on a Kerry presidency: "You sort of see him sitting at home with a powdered wig watching C-SPAN. For John Kerry, being rebellious is having red wine with fish." (A heavier fish can stand up to a pinot noir perfectly well, FYI.) [WT]

Lloyd Grove's Lowdown: Kerry played prep-school hockey with FBI Director Robert Mueller and John Whitman, Christine Todd Whitman's husband. . . What happens during the presidential debates when the topic of Skull & Bones is raised? According to the rules, a member is supposed to leave the room. [NYDN]
