THE WEAKEST GOP PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE POOL EVER?
Top Row L-R: “Pretty Ricky” Perry, Newt “3 Wives So Far” Gingrich, Michele “Kelly” Bachmann and Herman “The Godfather of Soul Pizza” Cain Bottom Row L-R: Rick “Snowball’s Chance In Hell” Santorum, Ron “Senior Crazy” Paul, Jon “Puffy” Huntsman, Mitt “Suge” Romney
“I’ve only been with one black man in my life, but damn, he was good!”
“It’s not that I’m dumb as a rock as much as it is that I’m flat-out f**king stupid!”
TV SoundOff: Sunday Talking Heads – A review of the Sunday morning news talk shows.
Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid are in a battle of egos over the size of their “X Factor” dressing rooms. Simon has insisted he wants two trailers on the show lot, including one for his guests. Reid, who recently joked to Epic staff he doesn’t want any “ugly” people on the team, wants a trailer big enough to hold meetings with artists he’s working with at the label, while he also mentors contestants each week. A show insider told us, “Reid has ordered 6-foot speakers and even an area to store wine. But Simon wants nine TVs and his trailer to be surrounded by plants and palms, so it feels like he’s in a garden. He has also asked for a jacuzzi with a TV in the bathroom, where he relaxes before each live show.” Cowell is known to relax in a bubble bath while penning his producer’s notes for the program. A source said, “Simon is the boss, so he’ll get what he wants, but L.A. has strong opinions about what he is used to. Nicole [Scherzinger] and Paula [Abdul] are joking that the guys are the real divas.” – NY Post 8/28/11

THEY SAID IT
“We should be like 1900, we should be like 1940, 1950, 1960,” said Texas Republican congressman Ron Paul during a Friday stop in New Hampshire in which he stated his belief that the federal government should reduce its role in disaster relief.
“When there’s a disaster there’s an appropriate federal role and we will find the monies,” Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said during a Wednesday news conference in Mineral, Va. “But we’ve had discussions about these things before and those monies will be offset with appropriate savings or cost-cutting elsewhere in order to meet the priority of the federal government’s role in a situation like this.” Cantor’s remarks came in the aftermath of the 5.8 magnitude earthquake that rattled the East Coast and originated in his district, when he said Congress will help those hurt by the earthquake but will require finding offsets for any federal aid.
“It is sinful to require us to cut somewhere … in order to provide emergency disaster assistance for American citizens,” Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) told The Huffington Post on Friday.
If not for the current sorry state of the economy, President Obama could look at the current pool of GOP candidates and say, “Really? Is this best you guys can come up with?
All Sarah Palin had to do in ’08 was follow instructions from John McCain’s people and she couldn’t even do that correctly. So why does the media think that someone who has quit every office she’s ever held, including halfway through her first (and only) term as governor, has the will and discipline to run a real campaign for president?
Am I the only one who’s noticed that no one from the “Pretty Ricky” Perry camp has refuted former Republican White House official Bruce Bartlett’s saying “Rick Perry is an idiot, and I don’t think anybody would disagree with that.”?
Glenn Beck is a perfect example of why Planned Parenthood is so important.
If it’s Tuesday, it must be time for another Beyonce video or CD release.
Replacing Holly Robinson Peete on The Talk with Sheryl Underwood is like going from a Bentley to a Yugo. No offense intended to the Yugo automobile company, if there still is one.
Sorry NFL, but I just can’t get excited about meaningless games in August. Call me when the regular season starts next month.
What in the wide world of Rae Carruth is going on with Ex-NBA, Georgia Tech star Javaris Crittenton charged with murder?
Maybe it’s just me – although I bet it’s not – but, when I read the headline, NBA Legend Arrested, Ralph Sampson’s name was nowhere on the list that popped into my head.
When I heard the news that Bill Walton’s son – the one that “plays” for the Lakers – is going to coach the “bigs” for the University of Memphis during the lockout (he and Tigers coach Josh Pastner were teammates at Arizona), I must have laughed for a good 20 minutes. I can’t wait for the first question from one of his players: “Uh, I have as much or more talent than you, but my dad wasn’t one of the greatest players in college and NBA history. How can I make it in the NBA?”
Only Ron Artest wouldn’t bother clearing up his outstanding warrants before a court hearing to legally change his name to something stupid (Metta World Peace).
There’s a saying in baseball that a manager is hired so that he can be fired someday in the future. That’s also true for any woman who decides to have a relationship with Derek Jeter (or George Clooney) Jeter, actress Minka Kelly split. I’m sure the beautiful Ms Kelly, one of the stars of ABC’s upcoming reboot of the Charlie’s Angels series, received some very lovely “parting gifts” when she joined the distinguished list of former Jeter girlfriends which includes one-time Miss Universe Lara Dutta, singer Mariah Carey, Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima and actresses Jessica Alba and Jessica Biel.
