Sludge Report


The picture above is the headline from the Drudge Report last night. It's pandering, race-baiting journalism at it's worst. Not only does it turn out that Clinton didn't ask Meeks to dropout (Charlie Crist did), but also the implication that it would have had anything to do with race is a flat out lie.

Meeks is polling around 15% and Clinton and the Democrats are afraid that Meeks and Crist will split the vote, thus allowing Tea Party candidate Marco Rubio to win. If Meeks were white or purple or even green (which is very in these days) the Dems would still be pushing for him to drop out. It's a slimy game, and making everything about race only make it slimier.

Drudge, you're a douche.

On a slightly less slimy note, we're en route Atlantic City for the "Out in AC" Halloween event with Margaret Cho, Sandra Bernhard and Perez Hilton. Got any questions you want us to ask the ladies?

Have a happy Halloween everyone!

By George I Think He's Almost Got It

Laura Bush reveals what George has been doing in his free time since being Mr. President. Be sure to watch until the end where she mentions his favorite game on the iPad. If he had only been playing years ago it probably would've helped him through some muffled speeches...

What Should I Do?

Check out this really smart, insightful commercial by Lebron James just released for the NBA season, which tips-off tonight. To think all he did was switch teams and it left him in this kind of profound existential flux. Good thing I never made it to the NBA...

Juan Williams, Lance Bass, Terrorism and K-Mart

NPR fired Juan Williams today after comments he made to Bill O'Reilly after the whole View walk-off last week. The whole thing is layered with tremendous irony because if you've ever seen Juan before he is a rare voice of reason (regardless of the network) and FoxNews specifically brings him on to balance things out with all the right-wingers. I guess his left-wingness just isn't lefty enough for NPR anymore.

Basically, he he was fired for saying when he sees people in "Muslim garb" on a plane that he gets nervous. I'm not defending the statement, however as someone in NYC who is constantly told "if you see something, say something." it does make me wonder what "something" qualifies as, and what are the repercussions of actually saying something.

It all reminded me of the one time I saw something and said something. And not only did I see something and say something, I also made a YouTube video out of it...

New York State of Mind

Having that "2:30 feeling" that they talk about in the 5 Hour Energy commercials? This video from last night's NY gubernatorial debate ought to perk you up a bit. And no, I don't know why the candidate from the "Rent is Too Damn High" party is wearing gloves, although that will be the least of your questions...

Comic Book Guy Concludes: "Best Simpsons Intro, Ever."


I needn't even comment.

The View from Backstage

The View went bonkers this morning. My faves Whoopi and Joy even spent part of this Bill O'Rielly interview backstage. I believe that's a first in all my View-ing of the show. (Sorry.)

You Are Awesome

Our #GayisAwesome campaign on Twitter really blew up and I'm genuinely humbled and in awe of the response we got out of it. I'm gonna ride these good vibes for at least a week for sure. If you need some good vibes for yourself, feel free to borrow some cause there are plenty to go around. If you weren't part of the action (shame on you), you can check out this video we put up and click here to see the live feed...

Honesty is the Best Rarely Used Policy

I've been wanting to get to this one all week, but between the Six Pack, bumping into Jerry Seinfeld and Joy Behar's birthday, I just simply didn't have enough time.

(Cough, cough.)

The video below of Anderson Cooper taking profoundly dishonest Florida politician Alan Grayson to task over an attack ad his campaign put out. It's absolutely emblematic of why people are sick of politics and distrust pretty much everyone on both sides of the aisle.

Anderson does a great job here, "Keeping Them Honest." Grayson does a great job of being a smug douchebag. Here ya go...

Women of Great Wisdom

Was just talking to my cousin, and as I am one to do offered her advice that I learned from my life-coach, Yoda. Here is how the conversation went...

Her: What should I do?

Me: As Yoda said, "Do or do not. There is no try."

Her: Didn't he live on another planet or something? On Earth, we try.

Easily one of the funniest things I've hear in months. Thanks for that, Lindsay! And for those of you who don't remember the Yoda quote, here ya go...

Oh, and speaking of great women, today is Joy Behar's birthday. But to paraphrase Joy from The View earlier today, "Ehh, another birthday, so what, who cares?"

I'm not sure Yoda would agree with that, but happy birthday, Joy.

Not That There's Not Anything Wrong With That

Bumped into Jerry Seinfeld this afternoon. Yadda, yadda, yadda, he won't be doing The Six Pack anytime soon.

So, instead of a Seinfeld interview, I here offer you a German-subtitled "Not that there's anything wrong with that" moment, complete with "YMCA" in the background. I think that makes perfect sense...

Man, He's Smooth

The Presidential Seal fell off his lectern as President Obama was giving a speech on Tuesday night. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a minor technical problem or drunken heckler just wreck a comedian, but Mr. President is pretty slick right here. And somehow I don't think any of the ad-libbing was on the teleprompters...

Rush to See Family Guy

And now back to comedy.


Rush Limbaugh will be play himself on Family Guy this week. I sense a classic...
