Gossip Roundup: Eh, Did You Really Miss It Edition

Reliable Source: Robert McNamara: movie star. Who he's dating, what he's wearing to the Oscars, his stand on the war in Iraq. Sometimes the Washington Monument is just the Washington Monument. Sometimes it isn't: Contract guards fired for "offering some form of services to the construction workers." Teaching men how to make their women happy using football metaphors. (What's the two-point conversion stand for?) Speaking of point spreads: That Bennet radio show we mentioned earlier. The bounty Garry Trudeau has placed on the head of Bush's fellow National Guardsmen. [WP]


Inside the Beltway: President's insistence on reporters asking questions in order makes him "quite the organizer." Something about a "breakaway region of Georgia." (What's this doing in a gossip column?) Bill Bennett is "going behind the microphone to broadcast virtue across the land." Illegal aliens steal identities as well as jobs. (Again: It's a g-o-s-s-i-p c-o-l-u-m-n. Like about people canoodling and stuff.) [WT]

Under the Dome: Vote-swapping: a great idea whose time has passed. GOP convention plans. David Hebert, Majority Whip Roy Blunt’s (R-Mo.) chief of staff, lost his composure. The Franco-American Friendship Caucus are trying to patch up things. Bob Dole encourages people to get it up -- for Medicare! McCarthy hearings mined for novel material. [The Hill]

Heard on the Hill: Hillary Clinton goes to spa. Amy Harkin, daughter of Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), saw a "life coach" on a reality TV show. John Dingell attempts to reconcile "manufacturing jobs" with "McDonald's." Illegal downloading humor. Tom Daschle swore in Max Cleland at Ex-Im Bank using two Bibles. Chuck Schumer makes a self-deprecating joke about his press-whoring. Tim Johnson has prostate cancer. [Roll Call]

Liz Smith: “No one has accused me yet of being a Muslim terrorist, but I'm sure that's coming. We do, however, have a known terrorist in the United States. I believe his name is Ralph Nader.” [NYP]

Rush & Malloy: Russell Simmons: "Maybe Phat Farm should make a T-shirt that reads, 'Shopping at Urban Outfitters Is for Old People.'" Jason Alexander's Middle East peace mission. [NYDN]

Lloyd Grove's Lowdown: Tina Brown's TV show is not dead yet. [NYDN]
