Gossip Roundup: Saxby Chambliss, Chris Matthews, Giuliani, the Clintons and more

Heard on the Hill: Sen. Saxby Chambliss's (R-Ga.) official web site is non-existent. "He was able to spread his Vietnam deferments over the course of three years, but I just hope it won't take that long until he has a fully functioning Web site. Even the entire Medicare system was up and running in just 11 months," joked one Democratic aide. . . Chris Matthews has Kerry on the brain, saying to Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.): "I hope you're ready when the call comes [from John Kerry], Senator Bob Kerrey, very respected U.S. Senator from Florida.". . . "Mad in Plaid" fundraiser for The Madison, a nonprofit of young professional D.C. women, included "fashions ranged from Caddyshack redux to Tartan glam - although the prize has to go to [Bob Ney's (R-Ohio) spokesman] Brian Walsh for an outfit straight out of [GOP aide Jonathan] Grella's dirty laundry," according to the group's president. Walsh's official response: "Jonathan Grella is a fashion icon and since he was out of town it was the least the rest of us could do to make sure his aggressive spirit was in full effect."

Inside the Beltway: The editor and publisher of Boston's Beacon Hill Times responds to a press release from Max Pulsinelli of Shirley & Banister Public Affairs highlighting Kerry's liberal record: "It's good to be a liberal. It means compassion for other people and justice for all. Take me off your filthy list. I am appalled that Americans can behave like your clients. They aren't what I was taught by my Christian, Midwestern farmer parents that Americans should be like. I am embarrassed and disgusted by these people." [WT]

Page Six: With Bush in Texas, Rudy Giuliani and Hillary Clinton are the main event at the Gridiron dinner; Bob Novak will be playing Joe Wilson and Howard Dean may make an appearance. . . Meanwhile, Bill and Hillary Clinton celebrated Chelsea's birthday at SoHo House. . . Hillary's spokesman after Al D'Amato kissed her on the cheek: "We are proud of our aggresive constituent contact operation." [NYP, NYP, and NYP]

Cindy Adams: Shirley MacLaine on being godmother to Dennis Kucinich's offspring: "I know him 30 years, since he was mayor of Cleveland. . . Just trying to get him to eat something besides veggies." [NYP]
