The term “ jump the shark “ comes to mind.

I’m not a Carly fan one bit, but I think you should seriously consider hitting the abuse button on yourself, once you educate yourself on why she has the hairstyle she does.

Carly survived a bout with breast cancer. Her hair is just starting to grow back, apparently.

I tried to watch this, but couldn’t finish it.

Do these arrogant, smug, self-righteous crypto fascists really believe all the baloney they’re trying to peddle?

Why do they hate their own country and freedom?

Exactly what popped in to my mind-- honest to God, why do these "celebrities" think that alienating half of their fans is a good idea?

The Fonz knows something about acting, and maybe even business, if he manages his own affairs.

Politics? He's just one more opinion in a sea of millions.

Not surprising, but still disappointing. I saw a Biography show about him a few weeks back. Seems like a decent guy, now I have to reassess. Not sure why most of these celebs feel the need to take pot shots at Sarah Palin. It's never of any substance either. Just catty stuff.

Henry Winkler is a dyslexic and was treated cruelly at times by his father and maybe his mother too--can't remember. Yet, he slams Sarah Palin as being the "most articulate member of her family". Sarah Palin is well spoken. She's a little screechy at times, but that's just her voice, not the substance of her remarks. The rest of her immediate family are mostly children. Her husband is a quiet man--nothing wrong in that. Her dad a school teacher--doesn't seem like an idiot to me. What family member exactly is he speaking of? Not sure why a man that has been on the receiving end of unkindness about mental abilities would choose to strike out like that especially against people he doesn't even know.

If he wants to go after someone for not speaking well--how about the Teleprompter in Chief? What uproar there would be if someone on the right attacked the Obama family.

BTW, George W. Bush might be a dyslexic. Curious to know, what unkind things Winkler had to say about his speaking/mental abilities. Never much kindness/understanding coming from these so called kind/understanding/open minded celebrities.

Aren’t we just talking about another Hollywood character? I mean he has the same value as some peanut farmer from Arkansas. All of these interviews where the Hollywooders gave their heart-felt opinion...are worthless. Larry King and the rest of the entertainment industry might just as well interview truckers at a I-95 truck stop for their opinion. Or maybe interview cattlemen at the Pulaski, TN stockyard.

Does anyone care what any Hollywooder really says?

Historically, these are the first people to be strung up in the city squares, once the Communists take full control and elimnate any of those who were not in the full, hardcare vanguard. In other words, their usefulness coming to an end, so do their lives under Communisty theory and practice.

They are typical useless idiots. It is a shame they cannot even see what they agitate for; their own liquidation by extreme radicals who are simply using them due to their own stupidity and naivete. It is almost sad; i feel embarrassed for this Hollywood ilk.

Henry Winkler is about as relevent as Chevy Chase. Why what either of them have to say would make the news is beyond me.

There is a psychology involved here with these Hollywood parasites mouthing off about conservatives. It is no different than a wilding, a term used to describe the attack of a woman in Central Park in the late 1980s.

Liberals have the need to attack conservatives because they find they get social approval for their actions. This is an expression of their own insecurities. In fact, they have learned that they get more approval when their attack is more outrageous and they try to outdo each other doing it. Actors are more vulnerable to such behavior because much of their life has become artificial and their self worth is only as real as the next movie script. They hunger for approval and bashing conservatives has become fashionable and almost a sport. It shows that their virtue is as thin as as the existence they have chose to live.

I hated 'Happy Days' from day one!

Stupidest sitcom of all time, except for Cheers, Three's Company, etc.

But then, I was raised on The Honeymooners, The Life of Riley, Our Miss Brooks, Topper, and You'll Never Get Rich.

GARA...I like that!

Anyway Winkler is known to be a left wing nut so I am not surprised. At a local college a few years ago he gave the commencement address and gave some idiotic comment that is typical of the way his ilk think. He condemned our society for not wanting to spend enough on education but we will spend plenty to build prisons so the kids who can’t get educated can be locked up! Can you believe the mentality??

sure why most of these celebs feel the need to take pot shots at Sarah Palin.

It's the easiest way for boobs who are completely ignorant on all matters of politics and current events to pretend otherwise with their leftist buddies.

When some lame ass liberal small thinker tries it in my presence, I just ask them some simple question ("Can you name three current Supreme Court justices?" or "Who is the prime minister of Canada?" etc.) that they can't answer. Then I tell them that Sarah Palin knows the answer to that one.
