    Actor Danny DeVito on Sunday called Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders "our Obi Wan," referencing the Jedi master from "Star Wars.""I just hugged the man who shook the hand of the Pope," DeVito said during a campaign rally for Sanders on Sunday when introducing the Vermont senator. (Sanders met the pope over the weekend, after speaking at a conference at the Vatican.) "We are going to go out and vote and put this man on Pennsylvania Avenue. ... Ladies and gentlemen, we are here for a hometown boy," Devito said to an audience of more than 28,000 in Brooklyn's Prospect...

    While on the scene at the Sundance Film Festival this weekend, Danny DeVito took a moment to comment on the tinderbox subject diversity in the entertainment industry, and the actor-producer didn't mince words at all. Bluntly attributing the lack of diversity in Hollywood and subsequently in awards-recognized films to systemic racism, he said that "it's unfortunate that the entire country is a racist country."

    Apparently mob life is inconsistent with family values. Adele Sorella, the wife of reputed Rizzuto associate Giuseppe De Vito, has been convicted for the 2009 murders of their eight- and nine-year-old daughters in Montreal, QB Canada, and she was sentenced to life in prison as reported by Paul Cherry for The Gazette. At the time of the murders Sorella's dirtbag husband was on the lam from drug charges. De Vito finally was apprehended in October 2010, and last June was sentenced to fifteen years in prison for his role in a cocaine smuggling operation through the Pierre Elliott Trudeau International...

    Remember that big-budget Hollywood movie about the powerful company that creates jobs, drives innovation, and gives millions to charity? Neither do I. From Gordon Gekko in “Wall Street” to Edward Lewis in “Pretty Woman,” Hollywood loves to hate corporate raiders. And now, we’ve learned, so do many of the Republican candidates for president not named Mitt Romney. “Winning our Future,” a super PAC that’s backing Newt Gingrich, just released a documentary called “When Mitt Romney Came to Town” that assails Romney’s record as head of Bain Capital. It’s the kind of withering attack on private equity that makes the Daily...

    Time for a bit of Pop Culture. Danny DeVito…we have the video and I'll never quite forget the pride he showed at admitting that he and his wife wrecked the Lincoln Bedroom. During the Clinton reign this happened, of course. We've got some blind items, a heroic rescue of a homeless man from the jaws of an alligator, and goodness, what's going to happen to the Wiggles now? Finally, yes I do have a scathing opinion of Britney Spears and her crotch shots for attention.

    If you have seen the recent appearance by Danny DeVito on "The View" (available on YouTube at the link and here), you may feel as revolted not only by his disgusting and obscene references to President Bush, but also by his frequently-bleeped description of having wild sex in the Lincoln bedroom during the Clinton administration. While the media excoriate Michael Richards for calling disgraceful-but-generic names at hecklers, DeVito gets a pass from The View and from the media for his vile spew directed at our national leader. His vulgarity oversprays onto all those who believe that the office of the...

    DeVito's words were bleeped out after he apparently used some bad language when joking about President Bush, whom he had imitated as a monkey and one of the Three Stooges. He later sat on O'Donnell's lap, and she kissed him on the cheek.

    Danny DeVito's disgraceful performance on "The View." the clip shows him referring to the President in terms vulgar enough that they were bleeped out by ABC; what it doesn't show ...were his remarks about having sex with his wife on every surface in the Lincoln Bedroom. Discussing the episode on today's Hugh Hewitt show, the incredibly talented James Lileks made a very perceptive remark about DeVito's comments about the Lincoln Bedroom -- to the effect that DeVito was the type of person who couldn't bear to leave anything undebased. Absolutely true... people like Danny DeVito have always been with us....
  • Video Clip: Actor Danny DeVito Drunk on "The View": His Bush Rant Has to be Censored

    According to the website VidClick, actor Danny DeVito made an appearance Wednesday on the ABC gab-gest "The View" to promote his new movie "Deck the Halls." Almost immediately it was obvious he had been drinking and comediane Joy Behar said he had been throwing back the booze the entire night before with none other than George Clooney. At one point he says, "'I knew it was the last seven limoncellos that was going to get me." How often have that happened to you? If you watch the clip, DeVito does okay until he launches into a tirade about President Bush...

    TOO MUCH HOLIDAY CHEER: Slurring Star Devito bashes Bush in bleep-ridden segment of 'The View' on Wednesday. 'I knew it was the last seven lemoncellos that was going to get me,' the 'Deck the Halls' star tells the gals. As co-host Rosie O'Donnell comically holds back the spewing actor, Barbara Walters looks on in observable disgust. In next segment in apparent slap at Devito, O'Donnell embraces new guest, Thomas Gibson, and whipsers in his ear, 'Nice to see you sober.' Developing...
