Couldn’t even jump it.
I can’t believe I donated money (10 years ago) to this guy:
When Crowley interrupted to ask if Palin was “divisive,” the senator chuckled.
“A guy named Ronald Reagan used to be viewed as divisive,” said McCain, whose staff regarded Palin as a primping, underprepared political novice at times during the 2008 campaign.
“She’s doing a great job. I think she’s motivated our base,” he added. “She had a positive impact on the last election, and I’m proud of her.”
I’ve never watched “Glee,” largely because I hate it when people break into song for no reason. That, and I don’t appreciate being patronized:
Rachel Barry is an annoying twit, Mr. Schue is a skeevy perv, Sue Motherfucking Sylvester is a monster, Santana is a slut, Puck is a lawbreaker—each character on Glee has a serious flaw that makes us hate them a little bit just as we are charmed by their quirky individuality. That is except for Babygay Kurt. He is bullied and that makes him a saint with absolutely nothing wrong with him at all. He is the A-number-one homosexual on the entire Earth and from the planet Transylvania as well. Babybay Kurt can make me cry like no other, and I’m so glad that there is a character like him on television, but last night was just overkill with the positive messaging.
Rest assured we gays are every bit as amoral as heterosexuals. I’m reminded of a sketch from Chris Rock’s HBO show, “Migger, the Magic [you know],” which satirized the Hollywood characterization of the wise, spiritual black person whose sole purpose was to steer misguided white people onto the straight and narrow — without expecting anything in return.
It is the season for giving, after all, and have I got a worthy cause for you. It’s my campaign to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for legendary actress Jenilee Harrison. I know, it’s incomprehensible that she doesn’t already have one. After all, she not only replaced Suzanne Somers on “Three’s Company” but also played a Ewing on “Dallas.” She’s doubly iconic and doubly deserving of this great honor.
I’m in the process of wining and dining the distinguished panel of hangers-on who choose the Walk of Fame stars and could use some financial aid. Lunch at IHOP won’t do the trick.
Now, on to some fresh dish ‘n ‘dat:
- My verdict is in on one of pop culture’s hottest debates: Blur or Oasis? I’m going with Oasis. They’ve had more hits, and everyone knows the popular acts are the better ones. Those Gallagher brothers got me thinking of another pair of feuding Gallagher brothers. Let’s hope the comedic Gallaghers have settled their dispute over a nice holiday watermelon. I wonder if they’re all related?
- Memo to Hollywood: We’ve had 3-D movies since I was a kid. Give us something new and exciting, like a Ben Affleck/Jennifer Lopez on-screen reunion. Or 4-D.
- There are not enough superlatives for me to accurately describe how much I loved “Burlesque.” Better get working on that Oscar speech, Cher! The movie seems to be doing really well with guys; the crowd was at least 90 percent men at the screening I attended in West Hollywood, or, as I like to call it, WeHo.
- Everyone wants to know the latest on Charlie Sheen but I’m more interested in whatever happened to Ramon Estevez, who wowed audiences with his performance in the wonderful 1980s film, “That Was Then … This Is Now.” The fact that the movie was ALMOST as good as the book speaks volumes.
- I get choked up every time I hear Kenny Loggins’ Christmas classic, “Please Celebrate Me Home.”
That’s all for this time. Please say a prayer for Jenilee Harrison this holiday season.
These are the consequences of camping overnight on the frozen concrete outside Target with hundreds of other losers desperate to save a few bucks on Buffalo Sabres merchandise. Note the nonchalance even after the scene turned ugly.
If you’re the type who tabulates blessings, be sure to include “not living in N. Buffalo” among them.
