The Blacklist Returns

 

A group called Grab Your Wallet seeks a boycott of L.L. Bean because one of the Maine clothing company’s 50 family owners donated to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. OpenSecrets.com shows that contributions emanating from employees of the Maine company favored Democrats over Republicans this election cycle. The disparity appears especially pronounced at the presidential level. […]

Washing Up Stars

 

I loved The Love Boat. I watched it when I was really young, so obviously there was a lot I didn’t get, particularly the innuendo about who was guest starring that week. I didn’t realize that many of these guest stars had once been “stars.” I was, maybe, eight years old at the time, and […]

Trump Derangement Syndrome at the Golden Globes

 

Meryl Streep prefaced her attack on Donald Trump at the Golden Globes by saying that she had lost her voice. She has had a rough few days of partying since Obama’s blow-out bash at the White House last Friday night, to which she and other stars had been invited. Given a lifetime achievement award for acting on Sunday night, she devoted […]

No Macarena for Trump

 

They won’t be doing the Macarena at President-elect Trump’s inaugural ball — but not because The Donald doesn’t dance. The music mafia doesn’t want to play for Trump. More precisely, it doesn’t want to allow the music to be played. The “mafia” being the two Performance Rights Organization (PRO) “families” — the American Society of […]

The loss of Debbie Reynolds just hours after the death of her daughter, Carrie Fisher, is a double tragedy unlike anything Hollywood and movie lovers have ever experienced.

Beleaguered Like Beckham

 

Is social media and modern technology turning us all into a bunch of worrywarts and wannabe nannies for people who didn’t ask our opinion in the first place? An insignificant incident this past week involving some players on the New York Giants football team that generated way too much publicity than it warranted has me […]

Never Underestimate Hollywood’s Stupidity

 

I really thought the Matin Sheen led plea to the Electors of the Elector College couldn’t be surpassed for sheer idiocy.  I’m happy to say I was wrong.  The hits and laughs just keep on coming:

Jennifer Lawrence Tanks

 

Who’s ready to play the percentage game? Since the left loves to use statistics, of course only the ones who cater to its point of view, let’s have some fun with numbers in the New Year. Yes, I know, we on the right are intellectual idiots who haven’t graduated from the right colleges and are […]

Hollywood Does Orwell

 

When you see videos of Hollywood celebrities — like the latest with Martin Sheen, Debra Messing and Bob Odenkirk — earnestly telling Americans how to live up to their brand of liberal politics by rejecting the GOP, the first question you have to ask yourself is: Why? I still ask myself that after watching the […]

Alexander Hamilton Was Stupid

 

Actually, Alexander Hamilton was a brilliant man.  But even brilliant men sometimes advance ideas that turn out to be spectacularly wrong-headed.  Such is the case with Hamilton’s Federalist Paper No. 68. This long-forgotten work is suddenly relevant because a bunch of celebrities–some famous, some you’ve never heard of, and one whose plastic surgery makes you […]
