    On yesterday's Fox News Channel show The Five, Greg Gutfeld tore into comedian Jim Carrey, whose Funny or Die parody song "Cold Dead Hand" mocks gun owners, Charlton Heston, and, improbably, that bastion of cultural evil, Hee-Haw. Gutfeld, who also hosts Fox News' Red Eye, is enagingly foaming at the mouth throughout his anti-Carrey rant. Snippets courtesy of Mediaite: [Jim Carrey is "the most pathetic tool on the face of the earth...I hope his career is dead and he ends up sleeping in a car the way his life began.

Barkin, best known for her roles in 1982′s “Diner” and 1993′s “This Boy’s Life” along with more recent turns on TV’s “Modern Family” and “The New Normal”, posted the original tweet from user HighwayStarr on Sunday, just hours before the Republican National Convention was scheduled to convene.

    Just read on another thread where "American Idol" winner and recording artist, Kelly Clarkson has endorsed Ron Paul (spiking her CD sales 442%). He's also liked by Barry Manilow, White Supremacists, anti-Semites, the "Occupy" protesters, the anti-war crowd, and tons of other Liberals. So, I'm thinking.... Let Ron Paul run as a Third Party candidate. He is more like Dennish Kucinich than he is Rick Santorum. There are a lot of ultra-Liberals who are very disappointed with their "Hope and Change" President, but they'd never vote for a Republican. That would give them an outlet for a "protest vote" against...

    - A word of advice to prospective American Idol contestants: vote libertarian. One day after she announced her support for Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul on Twitter, sales of pop singer Kelly Clarkson's most recent album were surging Friday on Amazon.com. Sales of Clarkson's album Stronger shot up 442% between Thursday and Friday afternoon on Amazon ( , Fortune 500), moving the album from #38 to #7 on Amazon's sales list. While there's no way to tell whether her support for Paul was the only reason for this jump, the endorsement clearly made a difference for some fans.

    Newt Gingrich vowed on Friday to campaign for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination on his own terms, saying he would do “whatever it takes” to remain in the race despite the exodus a day earlier of nearly his entire senior staff. “There is a fundamental strategic difference between the traditional consulting community and the kind of campaign I want to run,” Mr. Gingrich said. “Now we’ll find out over the next year who’s right.” Even as some prominent Republicans, including Gov. Terry Branstad of Iowa, questioned his viability, Mr. Gingrich made plans to deliver a foreign policy speech in Los...

    Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour thinks Iowans want a presidential candidate who’s not afraid to tell them the truth. One of the hard truths Barbour is willing to tell Iowans, he said during a visit to the Iowa Statehouse Feb. 21, is that farm subsidies have to be part of the discussion when it comes to reining in federal spending. That’s part of the “plain-spoken, common sense” he believes Iowans want to hear, Barbour said after meeting the Gov. Terry Branstad Monday. “Nothing can be off limits” when discussing how to bring federal spending under control, Barbour said. “Defense can’t be...

    SALT LAKE CITY — There are new hints that former Utah Olympic leader Mitt Romney is gearing up to announce another run for president. Politico reported Thursday that Romney aides are telling other Republicans that he expects to launch his campaign in April. The online news source noted Romney has already taken "another methodical step toward his 2012 run" by stepping down from the Marriott hotel chain board of directors — again. The last time Romney left was before he ran successfully for governor of Massachusetts following the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. He rejoined the board in...

Hagel told The Associated Press on Monday that Sestak has demonstrated during his two terms in Congress that he puts the interests of the nation and his constituents ahead of his party. "I think he's exactly what our country needs more of. I think he's what the Senate needs more of _ courageous, independent thinking," Hagel said. "That's what...

    It's crunch time in the volatile battle for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate, as Chuck DeVore and Carly Fiorina scramble to inherit voters peeling away from Tom Campbell as they become more familiar with his record and philosophy. Every bit helps in the final stretch of a fluid race, and it's my understanding DeVore will soon be announcing former San Diego Congressman Duncan Hunter, Sr., is endorsing him for U.S. Senate. Given that Hunter made his mark as an unwavering advocate for a robust national defense, his endorsement burnishes DeVore's argument that his national security credentials are an asset...

    10. Although Duncan Hunter’s name is nearly synonymous with the Border Fence on the US-Mexico border (at least the part of the REAL fence that is working), he should also be known for his stances on abolishing the ‘anchor baby’ laws, beefing up the numbers of Border Patrol officers, scuttling all benefits to illegal aliens, snuffing out the notion of “sanctuary cities”, and, most importantly, standing firm on his position that illegal aliens must be deported. It is the same position he came to Congress with in 1980. It has not changed. When asked during his 2008 presidential primary run...

    The 2010 elections are right around the corner.

Though it seems too early to expend effort lobbying for the right 2012 Presidential candidates, one glance through the headlines will demonstrate that a gaggle of Republican politicians are already lining their coffers and elbowing for a place in the primary. And we see another phenomena repeating, as predictable as the swallows returning to...

    1. In 2003, early in the Iraq war, a brave patriot named Lt. Col. Allen B. West acted to save the lives of the men he was commanding in Iraq, by firing his pistol next to a terrorist’s head and threatening to kill the SOB in order to get him to reveal a planned sniper attack, after other interrogation methods failed. The terrorist began singing like a bird, and the ambush was avoided. Yet the military JAGS decided to recommend Lt. Col. West for Court Martial or other “punishment” for his decisive actions.

    TV host David Letterman has been criticised for making "sexually perverted" comments and "rape jokes" about Sarah Palin's teenage daughter. The former vice presidential candidate hit back after he called her "slutty" and appeared to suggest her 14-year-old child slept with a baseball star. Letterman, the host of The Late Show on CBS, told his audience Mrs Palin looked like a "slutty flight attendant" on a trip to New York. The Alaskan governor was there for a baseball game and to be honoured by a special needs group, accompanied by Willow, 14.

    MADONNA is set to commit to Jesus Luz, a 22-year-old model, in a Kabbalah wedding ceremony this weekend. Mr Luz's father told Brazil's Quem magazine the commitment ceremony would take place in New York. "He is already living with her," Luiz Heitor Pinto da Luz said of his son's union with the 50-year-old pop star. "I don't know if there will be an actual wedding. From what I have read, there could be a sort of ritual, but I don't know Kabbalah ... to know if it's valid and legal.' The couple met in Rio de Janeiro in December during...

    "Let's play grown-up." When I was a child, that's what we said when we ran out of things to do like playing potsie or throwing rocks in the vacant lot. You'd go in and take your father's hat and your mother's purse and walk around saying, "Would you like tea?" In retrospect we weren't imitating our parents but parents on TV, who wore pearls and suits. But the point is we amused ourselves trying to be little adults. And that's what the GOP should do right now: play grown-up. The Democrats in the White House have been doing it since...

    All of April and the start of May 2009 find us still being bombarded by the media hyping up the first 100 days of President Obama with no sign of it dying down. Following the introduction to the monthly thread I will post some photos to remind us of the first few days of the first May of the George W Bush Presidency - those were the days. The quote I have chosen for this month are remarks made during Commander-In-Chief Trophy Event at the South Portico on May 4, 2001. Tomorrow I will post some more photos from May...

    Famed Mercury astronaut John Glenn has an open seat at his lunch table, provided you're willing to foot the bill. Glenn, the first American to orbit the Earth, is offering an afternoon lunch as part of a charity auction for the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, which is raising college scholarship funds for aspiring engineers and scientists. It was 50 years ago today that NASA unveiled Glenn and the six other Mercury astronauts - the country's first spaceflyers - to the world in a frenzied press conference that made the seven men instant national heroes. On that April 9 in 1959, Glenn...

Newt Gingrich is keeping an eye towards 2012, the former speaker of the House told reporters Thursday evening before a speaking engagement at Randolph Macon College. Gingrich said he and his wife, Callista, “will look seriously and we’ll probably get our family totally engaged, including our two grandchildren, probably in January 2011, and we’ll look seriously at whether or not we think it’s necessary to do it,” he said, according to the Richmond Times Dispatch. “And if we think it’s necessary we’ll probably do it. And if it isn’t necessary...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said the Wall Street bailout plan pushed by President Bush signaled the “final collapse” of the current administration. “The Bush administration has now provided three case studies in arrogance, isolation and destructiveness: Michael Brown during Hurricane Katrina, Ambassador Jerry Bremer in Baghdad and Secretary [Henry] Paulson at Treasury,” Gingrich said. “It is a tragic and very expensive legacy. No conservative and no Republican should doubt how much it has hurt our cause and our party.” The former Speaker reiterated his call for the resignation of Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. “As long as Secretary Paulson...

    The Weekly Standard Fred Thompson in 2012? Laying the groundwork for another presidential run. by Stephen F. Hayes 08/29/2008 3:00:00 AM IF FRED THOMPSON was the latest entrant in the 2008 Republican primary process, he may well be the earliest in 2012. Not that he will admit it. Over the course of the past two years, there has been much talk that the Republican party lacks a strong conservative leader. In May 2007, Thompson offered himself up and, on the issues, made a plausible case that he could be the guy. But his late entry to the presidential race, together...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) – George McGovern, the Democratic Party's 1972 nominee for president, is calling on Congress to impeach President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. And in an editorial in Sunday's Washington Post, McGovern writes the case for impeaching the current president is "far stronger" than the case made against former President Richard Nixon — the man who soundly defeated McGovern in the general election match up."Bush and Cheney are clearly guilty of numerous impeachable offenses," McGovern writes. "They have repeatedly violated the Constitution. They have transgressed national and international law. They have lied to the American people time after...
