It’s a shame the gay indignation councils will receive credit for the cancellation of a clearly horrible sitcom.
I doubt many, if any, transgendered people were that bothered by “Work It” — after all, it is a broad “comedy,” much like drag shows. (For those overly sensitive types, including the token straight guy who works for a local gay publication, I’m aware not all transgendered people are drag queens.)
It’s the indignation councils who pose the greater threat. If we were disabled they’d demand people call us handicapped.
I’d prefer not to be symbolized by a queen coiled up in fetal position screaming “shame” at passersby.
You think I’m unctuous now? You ain’t seen nothing yet, warns CNN’s biggest mistake.
“I think we will be evolving the show into a more structured format, bringing more of my personality into it,” Morgan said over a lunch with a small group of media reporters. …
The goal is to make the program “a bit more mischievous, certainly more humor, more opinionated,” Morgan says.
I’ll always be annoyed by hero worship, but the overhyped Broncos QB can’t be blamed for that. He deserves considerable credit, however, for this:
Every week, Tebow picks out someone who is suffering, or who is dying, or who is injured. He flies these people and their families to the Broncos game, rents them a car, puts them up in a nice hotel, buys them dinner (usually at a Dave & Buster’s), gets them and their families pregame passes, visits with them just before kickoff (!), gets them 30-yard-line tickets down low, visits with them after the game (sometimes for an hour), has them walk him to his car, and sends them off with a basket of gifts.
Home or road, win or lose, hero or goat.
