Politics isn't all boring speeches --- we're ramping up for TMZ D.C. in 2012, and Harvey lays out the plan to cover the hottest personalities (and bodies) in the Beltway.

Also, is boxer Victor Ortiz crazy to sink his 2 million from the Mayweather fight into tacos? He calls in to pitch his restaurant ... and ends up getting marketing tips from us.

Plus, Michael Lohan is officially -- the worst ... fugitive, ever.

No, I can NOT imagine any of your political kiss-ass. I want celeb info and that's it - I do NOT want to be politically enlightenerd by Harvey.

I believe Steven Tyler. If you've ever been dehydrated and passed out it's not pretty. Flat on your face and scary! I saw a grown man hit the floor and the damage. I can't imagine that happening in the shower! I think the guy deserves a break, it's a horrible place to fall.

I work for an orthopaedic surgeon and we see people ALL THE TIME who slip in fall in the bathtub. The majority of our people show up with broken wrists! Besides, I think Steven would say "hell yeah I was partying -- you should've been there!" if he were partying

Harvey, I assume you're aware enough to know about jfk. You remain completely duped about politics. Check Dylan Ratigan's rants.

If you go to DC, you should be aware that one should never vote or support a major party candidate. As Jesse Ventura recommends, all political parties should be abolished. All of this party politics is utter nonsense and irrelevant. The political system is essentially a myth.

YESSSSSS I was reallly thinking how bad i wanted you guys to cover politics a mths ago. people need to be exposed to it (politics) cuz peeps DO NOT get involved. people watch your show so they'd be informed- with factual info. although a guilty pleasure seeing expensive homes- it's torture becuz sooooo many peeps are paycheck to paycheck peeps.

Good riddance!    

TMZDC? Sure, anything that gets people more aware of politics is probably a good thing! It will have to be dumbed down to a degree, but a lot of non-politically astute people out there would probably appreciate the the accessibility. Go for it. And on the side...anyway you could do something else about spam, like minimizing marked spam posts. This is done on a lot of other sites and at least it somewhat defeats the purpose to a degree of the spammers before it is removed by the site mods. Thanks and good luck!

who dat    

Harvey, Congress has a 9% job approval rating. I'm sure your TMZ DC will be a smash failure. Do you have a team of monkeys high on crack, coming up with these ideas?

As if Washington politics isn't getting superficial and vapid enough, TMZ is going to lower the bar even lower. These politicans are going to worry about impressing your stoners. The politican need to worry about the economy; not your cameras. Additonally, your prejudical agenda is be liberal slants to the far extreme. Bad idea. Stick to the land of the vapid in Hollywood.

Good observation and conversation Mike; TMZ is too flimsy for politics. Harvey is not all that he thinks he is.

TMZ-DC I wouldn't want to risk making right wing ass--- look adorable, or funny. The fact that you said you didn't care about the ab mans "politics" creates that potential. People's politics do matter to me. I don't care about the rest. Focus on Ryan Seacrest and Anderson Cooper. Of course you're all jazzed so it may happen. Stay out of politics.

Yes Victor, you are more then a boxer. You're an idiot. He isn't even able to describe his business plans on the phone, yet he thinks he can build a business. Obviously, he has taken to many punches to his head.
