The astronut, Edwards, Anna Nicole Smith
We wish we could fastforward through this week. But for you gluttons for punishment, go ahead, watch as John Edwards met the press, Ted Haggard announced his deep denial, Snickers got a good laugh out of gay fear, Glenn Beck shared his ugly side and the Astronut blasted off. Of course, the news was dominated by the sad death Anna Nicole Smith, which probably could’ve been predicted by anyone paying attention. But we were most affected by the leaked Pentagon video of a friendly fire incident from 2003, when some American pilots fired on a British unit, killing a British soldier. The video — and the fact that the two Idaho National Guard pilots were cleared by a Pentagon investigation — has stirred public unrest across the pond.
