Mary Katharine Ham and Bill O’Reilly once again went toe to toe on marijuana legalization Monday night, and Ham was not pleased to have her child brought into the argument on national television. Fox Nation has the full segment, but this clip skips right to Ham’s eye roll of death.
The Ringstaff family motto is simple. As they say, “We can’t save the world, but we can do something about the one in front of us,” so when the caring crew saw a large dog lying by the side of the road, they immediately turned around to help. They thought that the dog had been hit by a car, but he was actually fine. He was, however, lying next to another dog that had sadly been killed. Based on his body language, they determined that this brave guy was grieving the loss of his friend.
The family couldn’t get the dog into their car, so they went home to get the truck. When they returned, he was still sitting by the side of the road. They called local shelters to try to find out if he had an owner, but when it seemed like nobody was looking for him, they decided to name him Tucker and invite him to be a part of their family.
What a beautiful giant Tucker is! I’m scared to think of what would have happened to this guy if his new family hadn’t come along. Based on this act of kindness, it’s clear that Tucker is now part of the best family ever.
Twitchy has already reported that an angry union mob violently tore down an “Americans For Prosperity” tent in Lansing, Michigan, and punched Steven Crowder repeatedly in the face. Video of the assault can be seen here.
Crowder appeared on Dana Loesch’s radio show shortly thereafter to give his account of what ensued. Here is what he had to say:
“They literally would have killed me where I stood if I defended myself.” – @scrowder right now. #dlrs
Not long ago, Media Matters’ one-man Obama administration spin machine, Eric Boehlert, was turning cartwheels and helping to push the rumors that Cumulus was going to dump Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. In the case of Limbaugh, the supposed upcoming dumping was due to advertiser backlash.
Hannity did not end up re-signing with Cumulus, and reportedly had harsh things to say about the company. For Boehlert, Limbaugh re-signing with Cumulus debunks Hannity’s alleged claim, but Boehlert seems to forget that half of this story debunks his own previous orgasmic assertions that Cumulus was going to dump Rush:
Got all that? If Limbaugh wouldn’t have re-signed with Cumulus, that would have been Boehlert’s proof that Rush has fallen. But Limbaugh did re-sign with Cumulus, and now that’s Boehlert’s proof that Rush has fallen. It’s like Al Gore’s climate change game: No matter what happens, it’s evidence supporting his claims. Or maybe we should call them “frustratingly unfulfilled fantasies.”
It’s on. Computer programmer-turned-singer/songwriter Jonathan Coulton has been fuming over what appears to be a blatant “Glee” rip-off of his 2005 cover of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s hit tune, “Baby Got Back.” The show aired the arrangement tonight.
I love that #glee just covered Baby Got Back – slow mo and with banjos!
That’s a reference to a tell-tale lyric in Coulton’s version. Wired reports:
“I assume [Glee] heard [my cover] and wanted to put it in their show. Which is flattering, but also an email would have been nice — just a hi, howya doin’ kind of thing,” Coulton told Wired by e-mail.
Coulton notes that the YouTube video was not an official Fox release of the song, but the track is currently for sale on the Swedish version of iTunes, as reported by Kotaku, where it appears to be offered from the official “Glee Cast” account. The song is reportedly slated for the Jan. 24 episode “Sadie Hawkins.” Wired reached out to a Fox representative, who said that they had no comment on the matter.
Coulton immediately posted the video on Twitter side-by-side with a link to his version of the 1992 hit single, and the resemblance was beyond uncanny, even simulating quirks like Coulton’s name drop of “Johnny C.” It was so close, in fact, that Coulton speculated that the same audio might have been used, and recruited his followers to help him analyze the track.
Here’s a side-by-side comparison:
Music fans confronted Alex Anders, music producer for the popular TV show, on Twitter after Coulton’s complaints:
@alxanders hey here’s an awkward question have you ever heard of jonathan coulton
We’ll update with any further response from Anders or details from Coulton.
Until then, tuck away this takeaway lesson: Coulton has earned at least $500,000 from music download revenue, merchandise, and performances. Intellectual property rights do matter, even among left-leaning creative types and Internet geeks. Every creator deserves the fruits of his labor and deserves recourse when those fruits are shamelessly stolen without credit/attribution/linkage — from the Fox network or anyone else.
On Monday’s “Reid Report,” host Joy Reid delivered a monologue musing about how “the UN is clearly not working.” Case-in-point: The UN hasn’t stopped Israel from carrying out “100 9/11’s” on Palestinian civilians.
The problem with living alone is that unless you have an industrial-sized freezer at your disposal, it’s insanely hard to store food for one. (And this usually results in me eating entire pizzas by myself.)
But YouTuber Gemma Stafford has a come up with a few perfectly proportioned meals that are ideal for bachelors and bachelorettes! Watch as she demonstrates how to make everything from brownies to pizzas in the microwave. And the best part? All of them are cozily made inside of microwavable mugs, which really cuts down on cleaning time! It’s a win-win situation, people.
These recipes are perfect for those of us who live alone and have endless amounts of weird leftovers in the fridge from failed cooking experiments. Plus, anything that helps me avoid washing pots and pans is amazing in my book.
It is an embarrassment to your party to play that card. This stuff about getting rid of the work requirement for welfare is dishonest…. and you are playing that little ethnic card there. You can play your games and giggle about it, but the fact is your side is playing that card…. It’s a race card.
It’s the GOP side that plays the race card?
It's so insulting that Chris Matthews thinks food stamps are a "race card" issue. http://t.co/aTE4PUMv
And evidently Matthews missed the recent MSNBC memo: no need to stop short at accusing the GOP of playing the race card. He could’ve gone all in by labeling everything Republicans do “the most despicable bigotry we can imagine.”
Farewell to missed opportunities, Chris.
Still, at this rate, Matthews will be a quivering puddle of drool before the GOP convention gets into full swing.
I like how @Reince says to Matthews (around 1:49 in) "You're loaded up". I think he meant with talking points but alcohol is just as likely.
The socialite slipped on some jewel-encrusted headphones and made her debut as a DJ in Sao Paulo, Brazil last weekend, and even days later critics are struggling to express in 140 characters exactly how little fun was had on the other side of the decks.
Superstar DJ and current electronic dance music (EDM) chart-topper Deadmau5 was among the first to declare the event the end of music and, possibly, the world:
How bad could it be, really? All you have to do is play some records, right? It was her first time (DJing, that is), so there’s certainly no shame in having an anonymous assistant run onstage mid-set to twist the volume knob for you.
