The Democrats who were watching thought I was going senile, and the Republicans knew I was.
Clint Eastwood • On Ellen Degeneres’ talk show, this afternoon, regarding his now infamous address of an invisible President Obama. During Eastwood’s appearance, the actor also took a moment to re-affirm his support for same-sex marriage, citing his Libertarian beliefs, and told Ellen that believes the government should just “leave everybody alone!” We expect a Chris Crocker mash-up any minute now. source

Master Debaters: On October 6, Daily Show host Jon Stewart will face O’Reilly Factor host Bill O’Reilly in a 90 minute debate — appropriately named “The Rumble In The Air-Conditioned Auditorium” — to raise money for charity. Interested parties will be able to watch “The Rumble” via livestream, though not for free, and half of the event’s proceeds will go to a number of charities chosen by Stewart and O’Reilly. We wholeheartedly recommend clearing your schedule that evening, setting aside $5 for the livestream, and plan to spend 90 minutes glued to your computer screen. After all, "It’s why Al Gore invented the internet." source

What’s that? You haven’t wanted to put your foot through your tv screen in about 12 months?
Don’t worry, Glenn Beck is on the case.

Roundhouse kicks for “Amercia”: Chuck Norris is worried, you guys. He’s worried about America, and wants his fellow Evangelical Christians to know that they’re the only ones who can save the day. With a little help from his wife, Ronald Reagan, and some Chuck Norris Facts (seriously…read the video’s description), Chuck Norris takes two minutes to remind voters about the existential threat to the United States that is President Barack Obama.  source

huffingtonpost:

Evidence of the constant shift of political parties right here: 10 famous black republicans.

In this list, HuffPo puts Harriet Tubman and 50 Cent on the same plane — despite the fact that the Republican Party is a significantly different party from what it was 150 (or even 50) years ago. How did this get through the editorial grinder? There is just so much wrong with this list that we don’t even know where to start.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again: if I were a young actor today I would quit before I started. If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don’t think I could survive it emotionally. I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety.
Actress Jodie Foster • Defending fellow-actress Kristen Stewart, and any public figure who found themselves in the spotlight at a young age, while also warning the parents of would-be actors and actresses. Foster, a close friend of Stewart after their work on the 2002 film ‘Panic Room’, wrote a column for The Daily Beast on the possibility of stars leading normal and/or private lives. Considering she’s one of Hollywood’s most experienced actresses — with 46 years under her belt after starting at the young age of 3 — Foster’s work offers a unique perspective from someone on the receiving end of societal scrutiny.  source (viafollow)

Last we checked, the movie is a comedy. Maybe more to the point is that it’s laughable to take political guidance or moral instruction from a guy who makes obscene gestures with a monkey on a bus in Bangkok.
Phillip Ellender, spokesman for Charles and David Koch • Responding to comments made by actor and comedian Zach Galifianakis, who recently told the New York Daily News that he disagreed with “everything” the brothers do politically. “It’s not freedom what they are doing,” added Galifianakis. In response, Ellender said the comedian’s statements “appear to be based on false attacks made by our political opponents, [and] demonstrate a lack of understanding of our longstanding support of individual freedom, freedom of expression and constitutional rights.” Sounds like a showdown in the making … between two ferns. source (viafollow)

I’m trying to laugh it off, but my summary of the evening is that it’s an interesting theater, boring movie, and a great place to take a nap.

Sherman Hemsley, the actor who made the character George Jefferson famous in “The Jeffersons,” has died, El Paso cops tell TMZ.

You may not remember this, but George was a groundbreaking character for his day. A real icon — and we’ve lost a few this year. RIP, good sir.
