Our panel of non-experts weigh in on this week's news events in a parlor game to gauge what kind of week America had. Joining us on this week's panel are Nancy French, author of "A Red State of Mind," comedian Dana Gould, and Reihan Salam, associate editor at The Atlantic.
Quite a week for Rod Blagojevich. His impeachment trial took place in the Illinois state legislature. But Blagojevich blew off the first part of the trial, choosing instead to go on "Good Morning America," "The View" and other places to declare his innocence. Thursday, he showed up to give a looooong speech in his own defense, then was convicted on a unanimous vote and tossed from office.
Was Blagojevich this week good news, bad news or no news?
Sarah Palin is back. Barely taking the time to unpack her new shopping purchases up in Wasilla, Sarah Palin has reemerged, starting up a new political action committee called SarahPAC, which was created to raise money for Republican candidates, including possible future presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
Is this good news, bad news or no news?
The US Postal Service might start delivering mail only five days a week. Like many companies and government agencies, the USPS is hurting financially. So they're thinking about cutting back service to only weekdays and ending mail delivery on Saturday.
What kind of news is that?
Prices are staying the same on this year's Girl Scout cookies, but the boxes are smaller and so are some of the actual cookies. The Girl Scouts say costs of baking have soared and so have transportation costs. So you can support the Girl Scouts and not feel quite so guilty, fatty. Then again, the girls might be ripping you off.
Girl Scout cutbacks, good bad or no news?
