Alec Baldwin Hates Fox News, and His Own Children

As far as I’m concerned, it was the “rude, thoughtless, little pig” episode — the angry voicemail message he left for his 12-year-old daughter Ireland in 2007 — that ruined Alec Baldwin’s reputation.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

This was a mistake. Really, who was a Piers Morgan fan? Have you ever met one? No, reaction to CNN’s scheduling news ran the gamut […]

House GOP Thinks Small

by Smitty Dear Peasant Scum: We have heard heard your complaints about the IRS pig rooting up all of your property, and have graciously afforded it some fresh lipstick. You’re welcome.

Rule 5 Monday: A Double-Stuffed Presidential Collection
