  • Michael Moore Gets Snarky about Miss Puerto Rico and the US South [vanity]

    Miss Puerto Rico dared support Trump reg. muslims. She also refused to agree that 'we are all muslims'. This was directed at Michael Moore's latest photo-op. She was banned from the contest. If she had criticized Trump, I imagine she would have gotten a standing-o. [More on that 'old' news in followup post.] Michael Moore got snarky: "Miss Puerto Rico seems like a wonderful representative of maybe not of Puerto Rico but of Alabama, maybe? Mississippi, maybe?"

  • How Kelsey Grammer's Personal Tragedy Argues For The Death Penalty

    Countless souls have made the spectral walk to the gallows, have heard the dusty rasp of death’s mournful eulogy whispered odiously from his pale throat, “dead man walking.” The condemned have been hung by the neck until dead, shot, poisoned, decapitated, stoned, or clapped in an iron skull cap while 10 thousand volts of electricity boil the life from flesh and bone. But, this is justice, when delivered by legitimate authority. This is the only atonement that can be made to expunge a crime so black and abhorrent that its presence distorts and tortures nature and its order. Capital punishment...

    Who's the boss? Not Kelsey Grammer. Starz television network has decided not to give Grammer another term as mayor of Chicago. The cable network said Tuesday that it was canceling the drama "Boss" after two seasons. The show premiered to critical acclaim, starring Grammer as tyrannical Chicago mayor Tom Kane. The role earned Grammer a Golden Globe for best actor in a drama earlier this year. Starz says in a statement that although the network is proud of the show, it has "made the difficult decision to not proceed with `Boss."' The move was a flip-flop for Starz, which renewed...

    (April 20) -- Look alive, Fox! This summer, a new on-demand media network is set to debut several steps to the right of the current "Fair and Balanced" cable-news leader. The "RightNetwork" announced its arrival with a limited-preview website, touting a line-up of all-original programming designed to reflect "Pro-America, Pro-Business, Pro-Military sensibilities." And even though the start-up lacks a specified release date and may or may not have a national distributor, it has already generated the kind of controversy that befits any cable news channel. The commotion was largely kicked up by a widely circulated promotional video starring "Cheers" and...

    At a March 3, 2002 Presidential Gala at Fords Theater, in Washington, President George W. Bush was seated in the front row. When emcee Kelsey Grammer introduced blind musician Stevie Wonder, the president smiled and raised his right hand in a perfunctory wave. It was clear to those seated nearby that his gesture was intended for Grammer, one of Hollywoods few unabashed Republicans. Nevertheless, the Washington Post published a story the following day implying that Bush had waved at Stevie Wonder, saying, The Prez is such a dolt, he waves at blind folks, and Democrats all across the country repeated...

    Los Angeles For anyone who has ever been on a movie set, the commotion inside Warner Brothers Studio 15 will be familiar: serious-faced actors and actresses quietly rehearsing their lines; the director of photography huddled with his assistants around two high-definition screens inside a small black tent reviewing the last scenes; extras lounging around the set trying both to stay out of the way and to get noticed; carpenters busily working to construct the set for the next scene; a frazzled first assistant director guzzling Red Bull and yelling instructions to anyone who will listen. "Rolling," he shouts. Others throughout...

    The comedy director who gave us such immortal movie lines as Oh stewardess, I speak jive and Dont call me Shirley is now leveling his sights at documentary filmmaker Michael Moore. David Zucker, the director and writer who helped create Airplane! and The Naked Gun franchise has called on Hollywoods tiny but tightly knit Republican A-list crowd to help him make a broad yet unusually right-leaning political satire titled An American Carol. The low-budget indie co-stars Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer with Oscar-winner Jon Voight, cinema icon Dennis Hopper, model-heiress Paris Hilton and frequent Zucker stooge Leslie Nielsen in minor roles....

    At Saturday's White House Correspondents Association dinner, actors Kelsey Grammer, Jason Priestley, Robert Duvall and Ron Silver all told reporter Marc Morano how they disagreed with Michael Moore's anti-Bush rant at the Academy Awards and wish their fellow celebrities would refrain from making comments about politics. Priestley, Morano relayed, lamented the excessive coverage of anti-war celebrities by what he termed the 'liberal media.' And, Morano learned, CNN's Bob Franken did not like Fox News's use of the phrase 'we' when covering the U.S. armed forces during the war. An excerpt from Morano's April 28 story about what the actors...

In an interview, the ``Frasier'' star called himself a ``big fan'' of the president, saying, ``I think he makes a lot of sense and he's had some clarity when it was very important.'' ``The thing I most respond to in the political arena is people that actually don't play politics, and I think President Bush comes from a place that is sincere,'' Grammer said....
