DANCING WITH THE STARS co-host BROOKE BURKE-CHARVET has revealed that she's battling thyroid cancer. Brooke says that after months of "research" and "tests" and "second opinions" she needs to have a thyroidectomy, which will result in what she says will be a nice big scar across her neck. If there is an upside to it, Brooke says doctors told her it's a good kind of cancer to have and that it's a happily-ever-after ending kind of thing.

After President Bush was re-elected, the liberals threatened to move to Canada. Now that President Obama has been re-elected it's the conservatives turn to threaten to leave. Take Georgia's Kristen Neel, for example. Kristen Tweeted: "I'm moving to Australia, because their president is a Christian and actually supports what he says." The Australians were quite amused to see Kristen's Tweet, seeing as how they don't have a president, but a prime minister, who's an atheist and lives in sin with her boyfriend. If that doesn't dissuade Kristen from moving, she'd likely be disappointed to learn that Australia has universal health care, doesn't allow people to carry guns, has no death penalty, the country is pro-choice, has openly gay politicians and judges, and evolution is taught in all schools.
