OMG: Van Jones is a Truther! (oops: so is an Insight Magazine writer) - 09/03/09

Amanda Carpenter of the Washington Times informs us that "Green jobs 'czar' signed 'truther' statement in 2004" [1], referring to Van Jones signing the statement here. There are a couple problems detracting from the WashTimes' scoop:

More Tea Party brilliance: an answer video to a U-movie actress - 08/26/09

Glenn Reynolds elucidates that one of the tea parties groups has a new site: teaparty.thearenausa.com/insight/home.jsp While I enjoy :33 to :37 of the video in the upper right corner of that page (attached hereto), I have to wonder:

Providence College refuses to let Tom Tancredo speak, thanks to Bishop Thomas Tobin - 04/27/09

Former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo was planning to speak at Providence College in Rhode Island on Wednesday, but college officials denied the request (link). Instead, he'll be speaking at a VFW hall and in front of the college's gates. One reason given for the rejection is that the group that invited him - Youth for Western Civilization (link) - is not accredited. However, they're actually open about the real reason: Just as important, [PC spokeswoman Pat Vieira] said, were Bishop Thomas J. Tobin's views on immigration and how immigrants -- whether here legally or illegally -- should be treated,...

Janeane Garofalo, desperate for any attention, decides to go after tea party market - 04/16/09

Lots of people are trying to tap into the tea parties market, but almost all of those in the tea party-supporter way: selling t-shirts, trying to get their lounge singer career going, trying to prevent their nearly unwatched internet video channel from completely failing, and so on.

Even obscure celebrities deserve their privacy - 11/28/08

I will give $1,000,000 (ZWD) to the first person who - without clicking the link or having foreknowledge of the event in any way - can identify the non-entity celebrity who's holding up the following sign or either of the other two nobodies who are at the same table as her. Stumped? Click here.

Henry Rollins: how ashamed of himself should he feel? - 11/03/07

Consider this clip from the aged punk's show before answering: Is he putting some of the profits from the show aside in order to get her the treatment she obviously needs? If his viewers get tired of JG, perhaps he could show bum fights or make fun of the retarded instead.

Debbie Schlussel pictures - 12/15/04

Here's one with terrible lighting and everything else: And here's one with better lighting but with Debbie Schlussel's conservative assets less visible: Here's another

"Air America's hosts are armed to the teeth..." - 07/01/04

With "hard, up-to-the-second facts," that is! Or, so sayeth a Guardianista named Paul Carr: Last month, the Boston affiliate of America's Fox TV network ran a news item about a new craze sweeping cyber space... ...as Fox's breathless reporter put it, "to catalogue the details of their lives on web pages created for them, by them ... just blah-blah-blogging". Incredible. I wonder what burgeoning technological trend Rupert Murdoch's news machine will uncover next?

"Media Mum on Dean's 'KKK' Fund Raiser" - 12/17/03

From this: There's little doubt that if Howard Dean were a Republican, he'd be announcing his withdrawal from the presidential race this week, as details from a recent Dean rally - so ripe with racism it would make a Ku Klux Klansman blush - have begun seeping into print. Janeane Garofalo: I could turn her around

What the heck is a blog? - 07/03/03

For those of you who have never heard of a "blog" before, I'll try to offer the following explanation. This explanation will be very simplified, which I'll correct at the end. First of all, a blog is a specific type of a website. A blog allows the blog's owner to act as a bit of a non-professional journalist or pundit.

"Tales from the Left Coast: True Stories of Hollywood's Stars and Their Outrageous Politics" - 07/01/03

I haven't read this book, but it looks interesting: In Tales from the Left Coast, author and political commentator James Hirsen digs deep into the liberal underbelly of Hollywood to reveal how biased politics have corrupted the entire ent

"Did liberal-bashers cost Garofalo her sitcom?" - 06/05/03

Unfortunately, it appears that her sitcom "Slice o' Life" has been cancelled (suntimes.com/output/zwecker/cst-ftr-zp05.html): Is the ghost of Sen. Joe McCarthy alive and well in Hollywood? That is certainly on the minds of many outspoken liberals in Tinsel-town these days. The latest conspiracy theory focuses on the just-announced axing by ABC of very vocal anti-Iraq war activist Janeane Garofalo's new sitcom, ''Slice o' Life...''

Martin Sheen is "not talking to anybody right now." - 04/27/03

This article checks in with various anti-war celebs to find out what they're doing since they recently disappeared from sight. It's all pretty good, but: But Mike Farrell, star of television's "MASH" and organizer of "Artists United to Win Without War," told Reuters that those who joined the loyal opposition in Hollywood had not been silenced and

"Janeane Garofalo show 'under fire'" - 04/10/03

From this: ABC television is being threatened with a boycott of the network and its advertisers if it airs a show starring outspoken war critic Janeane Garofalo, reports MSNBC columnist Jeannette Walls. The network is said to be flooded with messages from supporters of the war in Iraq, who are complaining about a sitcom now in development.

I will accept her apology on Bush's behalf - 04/09/03

From this (foxnews.com/story/0,2933,83365,00.html): O'REILLY: If you are wrong... and if the United States - and they will, this is going to happen - goes in, liberates Iraq [with] people in the street, American flags, hugging our soldiers... you gonna apologize to George W. Bush?

"Garofalo To Be Lowered Into Shredder" - 04/01/03

This [1] is pretty funny, but I have other plans for her. However, I think Dustin "Screech" Diamond, instead of the genital electrocution, should be tied up and beaten by Ron "Horshack" Pallillo. [1] http://jimtreacher.blogspot.com/ 2003_03_23_jimtreacher_archive.html#200066386

Where the hell did all these anti-Hollywood blogs come from? - 03/11/03

www.boycott-hollywood.us, www.hollywoodhalfwits.com, Citizens Against Celebrity Pundits, VikingPhoenix (huh?), DumbCelebs, and all the rest. Hollywood Halfwits refuses to correct the Janeane Garofalo quote, which I corrected here. As the comments to

What did Janeane Garofalo *really* say? - 02/27/03

DailyPundit (dailypundit.com/archives/008267.php), CrooowBlog (tvh.blogspot.com/2003_02_23_tvh_archive.html#89848367), and The Blog from the Core (weblog.theviewfromthecore.com/001356.html) link to this story (hollywoodinvestigator.com/2002/garofalo.htm) about a decade-old interview with Janeane Garofalo:

You call these celebrities? - 12/10/02

Via LGF (link right) the full text of the celeb letter of support to Saddam is here. The cumulative number of months that these people haven't worked is probably well into the 4 figures, as they say in Hollywood. And, how did these has-beens find out about the letter? Is there a celebrity mailing list? Did they put up a poster at the unemployment office? You might ask, who cares what some celebrities think? Well, unfortunately, celebrities do have an influence on society.
