PAPER: GINGRICH BEHIND GOP'S LEWINSKY ADS
The GOP's multimillion dollar ad campaign invoking President Clinton's
relationship with Lewinsky was devised by House Speaker Newt Gingrich and
tested before more than three dozen groups of likely voters before
Republicans unleashed the assault, Howard Kurtz reports in Friday's
Kurtz reports: "Amid reports the GOP was thinking of pulling the ads, Rush
Limbaugh urged listeners to call the National Republican Congressional
Committee and complain. One unlucky staffer there received angry messages on
a pager such as: 'Don't pull the ads, you wimp.'"

FIRST LADY PLANNING TO SPEAK OUT
First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton is planning to speak out and defend her
husband on the eve of the election, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. "She's
going to make her most detailed remarks" on the Lewinsky situation, one
"It could come on Sunday. She'll say that she has forgiven her husband and
that the election is about issues and public policies -- not personal
Hillary Rodham Clinton's planned remarks became the talk of Capital Hill
White House intelligence cautioned that the remarks may not be a sure thing.
"It is being debated," said one well-placed source.

TROOPER TO TELL: I'M ONE OF THE FEW THAT KNOWS ABOUT HILLARY AND VINCE!
Things could turn wild on The Mall in Washington, DC this weekend. Bill
Clinton's top security man during the governor years in Arkansas has asked
the planners of Saturday's FREEREPUBLIC rally at the Washington Monument for
time to address the crowd and cameras, it has been learned.
"Give me three minutes," Brown asked.
He'll get 15.
L.D. BROWN, past president of the Arkansas State Police Association, is set
to make his first nationally televised comments on what he says he saw and
did for the governor.
Brown reveals that he is one of a handful of people who knows the true
nature of Hillary Rodham Clinton's relationship with the late Vince Foster.
Brown is planning to address the topic and offer new details, according to
one source who spoke with Brown on Thursday.
But L.D. Brown may have trouble staying focused on one scandal topic,
however. Brown has been linked to stories that range from the unbelievable
to the unbelievable.
Flash: Brown was encouraged by Clinton to work for the CIA and was sent to
Puerto Vallarta to carry out an assassination.
Flash: Brown carried bags of illegal campaign money for Clinton.
Flash: "Do you have anything at all on this story about an offer to
ex-trooper L.D. Brown of $100,000 at 2:00 a.m. in the morning on a bus
outside London to shut up?" White House Deputy Press Secretary Barry Toiv
was asked during a briefing in 1997.
C-SPAN cameras may never be the same again.
"This is going to be a show to stop them in their tracks," predicts on rally
FREEREPUBLIC's event will feature more than a dozen speakers. Leading lady
Lucianne Goldberg is said to be taking the stage for the finale.

'CAR FIRE IN THE CENTER LANE'
Finally there is an all-traffic radio station for the all-traffic lifestyle.
Los Angeles radio may never be the same again: K-TRAFFIC 1650 on the AM
dial has launched.
"Give us 5 minutes, we'll get you there," is the slogan for the city's first
24-hour traffic channel.
"A radio station that understands Los Angeles is a car town."
On K-TRAFFIC there's no music, no hot talk, no callers -- there are just
non-stop traffic reports!
"Car fire going real good in the center lane."
"Break lights on the northbound 101."
"Body crash on the 134."
"Looking swollen... bunching... tough trip... double trouble... it's
jammed... it's solid... the 710 is tough... Better call-in and tell them
you're going to miss the 9 o'clock meeting, the 405 is not moving."
Just in time for century-end urban life, K-TRAFFIC already appears to be a
[CHP is on the scene.]
And while there is clearly something twisted about listening to non-stop
traffic reports 24-hours a day, anything beats heavy rotation of Alanis
Screaming cat found on side of highway.
