America, feculent dastardling Ben Shapiro is offended. He is very offended. His dudgeon is, in fact, quite high indeed. You see, he realized something yesterday in all the fuss over the announcement that Stephen Colbert would replace David Letterman as host of CBS’s The Late Show: Liberals get all offended by blackface, which is a […]

The other night, Bill O’Reilly got mad at hippies and the “grievance industry” — America’s supposed cultural/political movement that encourages everyone who isn’t Bill O’Reilly to think they’re a victim of racism or sexism. O’Reilly also had some grievances of his own, especially after being victimized by this Stephen Colbert fellow, whose ratings are nowhere […]

It looks like almost everyone on Twitter is congratulating Stephen Colbert on his being chosen to take over David Letterman’s Late Show, except for a few people who are surprised-not-surprised that the job went to a middle-aged white guy, and a few conservatives who are now going to boycott The Late Show because they had […]

CBS has announced that Stephen Colbert will replace David Letterman on “The Late Show,” leaving one really important question unanswered: if Stephen Colbert becomes David Letterman, who then will be Stephen Colbert? Never fear. We’ve compiled an incisive and trenchant and helpful list of 13 People Who Should Be Your New Stephen Colbert. We were […]

You’re not doing anything right now because it is late Friday afternoon, so why not roll on over to Happy Nice Time for some hot hot link on link action? We’ve got our recap of this week’s Nashville, Jon Stewart on the terrible Supreme Court campaign finance decision, and our thoughts on who should replace […]

Our beloved FLOTUS has been the subject of some “trouble” lately, but of course, that is one of the things we like about her. We also adore her style, charm, and biceps. That Michelle Obama charm was on full display last night, when our FLOTUS made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. […]

This strange image is on Mitt Romney’s Flickr. With no explanation. Is that a cue card? Who is telling the perfectly still nondescript Mormon to say that? Is it Joseph Smith? L. Ron Hubbard? Jared Loughner? Hey, maybe this election is going to be a contest after all, because who’s going to get Oprah’s endorsement, […]

The #1 most important world news story right now is: whatever is happening in Egypt Charlie Sheen no jobs Mitt Romney visited David Letterman’s talk show last night and recited his very own monologue, “Things You Don’t Know About Mitt Romney”! Here is an example of one of these Things you don’t know about him: […]

New stimulus money is maybe on the way! This time they are calling it “an extension of the first stimulus package” and it does not care for nicknames. [New York Times] The U.S. gave Pakistan $1.5 billion/year, for the next five years, simply to stop doing a thing: namely, supporting terrorism. [New York Times] Obama’s […]

Obama gets a gold medal in the prestigious Kindly Requesting The Olympics For Chicago While In Denmark event. [New York Times] David Letterman slept with some people on his staff and some other lady turned around and performed extortion on him! [New York Times] Some ex-prosecutor on the Roman Polanski case now admits that he […]

Here is Howard Kurtz, official professional media critic of both the Washington Post and CNN, doing some important, trenchant analysis, as one would expect of all esteemed journalistic savants in his position: Twittering snide, resentful barbs about the level of difficulty in television comedian David Letterman’s questions to Barack Obama last night, on the Late […]

What are the PUMAs up to, and why? It is the impossible question. Have they uncovered new evidence of Obama campaign voter suppression (sexism) in some early caucus state? Maybe they’ll do that next week. For now, they’re at the forefront of the “Anti-David Letterman Movement,” which you may have suspected after watching that funny […]

There are doubtless a billion YouTubes out there already about the half-dozen loons who stood outside David Letterman’s studio yesterday and complained about how “he rapes children with his mouth,” but this one looked good to us. You might laugh, but stop and think a minute: did they succeed in getting Letterman fired or not? […]

Christ, it’s not like there’s any election going on, when this public celebrity nonsense sometimes can matter, for a few hours, but here we are finally getting all intrigued-like over some snit on Todd & Sarah Palin’s Facebook page about a baseball sex joke David Letterman made on television one night. What’s going on now. […]

Did you know David Letterman made a perfectly normal political-scandal joke last week about famous human whore “A-Rod” possibly impregnating Alaskan Anger Bear Wingnut Sarah Palin’s famous teen-pregnancy daughter while Sarah Palin was at Yankee Stadium?
