    Maryland ballot referendums offer a GOP reality check

    'Dancing With the Stars' week 5 results: Losing some sparkle
    "DWTS" showed signs of diversification tonight with a fun performance by a guest krumper. That's standard fare for Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance?" (love that show!) but not what I'm used to on a ballroom show. Another guest performer, Kelly Clarkson,...

    From Sun Magazine: First look -- 'VEEP' set visit

    Rick Perry: Macho, macho man
