This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

Mark Ebner, author of “Paris Hilton: Inside the Sex Tapes, Scandals, and Shakedowns of the New Hollywood,” calls in at 8:30am to talk about those scandals and shakedowns.

Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said yesterday the massive stimulus bill backed by President Barack Obama and congressional Dems could go down to defeat if it’s not stripped of unnecessary spending and focused more on housing issues and tax cut. The Senate version of the bill is headed to the floor for debate.

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced legislation over the weekend to cap the salaries of executives from companies that received federal bailout funds. The limit applies to salary, bonuses, and stock options and is set at $400,000, which is what the President of the United States earns.

Members of the Republican National Committee elected their first African-American party chief Friday, choosing former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele to chair the organization after six tumultuous rounds of voting. Steele has vowed to reach out to “friend and foe alike.”

Four prominent Dem senators spoke out Saturday in support of former Sen. Tom Daschle, whose tax records have come under scrutiny since President Obama nominated him to be secretary of Health and Human Services. The Senate Finance committee is to meet today to discuss the nomination.

Pittsburgh improvised a 6-yard touchdown with 35 seconds left that gave the Steelers a record-setting sixth Super Bowl victory, 27-23 over the Arizona Cardinals last night.
