I’m a proud union member and I support the public workers in
Let’s remember that the recession was caused by greed on Wall Street, not the pay scale of your kid’s elementary school teacher or that of the nurses on whose care you depend when too sick to care for yourself.
Giving the term “TV royalty” a whole new meaning…
Invitations to the upcoming royal wedding are going out this week and while Ellen probably won’t be checking her mail box for one, she still might want to send a nice gift to the happy couple.
Ellen discovered that she and Kate Middleton are related – 15th cousins to be exact. Check out Kate’s hat. Coincidence? I think not.
Any famous cousins in your genealogy?

And the “Mommie Dearest” Award goes to…
Pissed off because her apparently unsupervised young boys trashed the enamel on the bathtub with their spinning metal Beyblade tops and caused $500 worth of damage, mom Dana Stillwagon decided to punish them by selling their much-loved implements of destruction on Ebay, even going so far as to post a photo of their tortured response.
Check out those faces.
Her ad reads:
We are selling 8 Beyblades, 2 of them light up. As you can tell, the boys are not happy about this! They have been using their bathtub as a "battle arena" and Beyblades + Bathtub = Destruction… They had $125.67 in their piggy banks that will be going to toward the cost. We will use the profit from this auction towards the balance and then it is onto other toys!
Presumably, any money left over will go into a fund to pay for all the psychotherapy they’ll be needing as adults.
Why do I find myself longing for Kate Gosselin?
No longer content with just starring in the train wreck that is “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Camille Grammar, America’s current most famous ex-wife, is now popping up (or out as the case may be) all over the place.
Just this week she had a guest part on the show, “$#*! My Dad Says” and now CNN has hired the idiot du jour with the stand-alone boobs to do red carpet duty for them on Oscar night.
Why CNN? WHY?!
If the ability to string a coherent sentence together wasn’t a requirement, you could have gotten Sarah Palin.
GOP Protects Big Oil. The rest of us are on our own...
House Republicans voted to slash all federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides reproductive health care, HIV testing and breast exams to low income women. They also cut $600 million in funds that go to pay for border patrol. Okay, we know they’re determined to wrestle away women’s hard-fought battle for control over our own bodies, but aren’t these the same people always bitching about the need to tighten our borders?
Also headed for the chopping block, The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program which helps primarily the elderly and disabled to pay their heating bills. In these harsh winters, it’s likely some people will die as a result, but you don’t hear outrage about how we’re “killing Granny” here. Nope. They seem perfectly happy playing poker with people’s lives on this one.
Meanwhile, the GOP is vowing to fight the President’s proposal to cut the $4 billion in tax breaks we give to the oil industry every single year, and let’s not forget those tax cuts they gave to the highest earners among us which actually added $35 billion to the budget deficit.
And no surprise here. Not a single Republican mentioned eliminating their own taxpayer-supported health care as a way to cut the deficit.
Soon to be gracing a TV screen near you...
“Joe the Plumber,” who is neither named Joe nor a plumber, is back with a new talk show, “Whaddaya Know Joe?” for the conservative Right TV Network.
Unlike some other debris left over by the McCain campaign, Joe is an unapologetic, even somewhat likable dufus who, to his credit, does not appear to aspire to any loftier position.
No word as to whether McCain will guest on the show, but I think it has all the makings of a huge hit among the beef jerky crowd.
