When trailers for Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus starting showing on the internet, I just assumed the trailers were some kind of spoof and not adds for an actual movie. Really? Lorenzo Lamas and Deborah Gibson? Come on!(more…)
Who knew? Apparently brewing flavorless beers and ales was the engine that drove the American economy during the 1950’s.(more…)
Peter from Victoria, BC: “Has anyone noticed that life expectancy in Canada under our health system is higher than the USA?”
Bill O’Reilly: ” Well, that’s to be expected Peter, because we have 10 times as many people as you do. That translates to 10 times as many accidents, crimes, down the line.”

Todd Akin (R-MO) implied that his fellow climate change-denying GOP congressmen are more knowledgeable than Democrats because they have “passed high school science”:
AKIN: This whole thing strikes me if it weren’t so serious as being a comedy you know. I mean, we just went from winter to spring. In Missouri when we go from winter to spring, that’s a good climate change. I don’t want to stop that climate change you know. Who in the world want to put politicians in charge of the weather anyways? What a dumb idea. […]
Some of the models said that we’re going to have surf at the front steps of the Capitol pretty soon. I was really looking forward to that. […]
We’ve been joined by another doctor, a medical doctor but also a guy who graduated from high school science as well, from Georgia, my good friend, Congressman Gingrey. … So to have actually a guy who’s passed high school science is tremendously helpful. And Dr. Fleming from Louisiana.
I say both.
From the April 22 edition of Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor:
O’REILLY: Ok, so the best thing that the president did in the past weekend?
COLMES: Well, he certainly had a wonderful moment with Hugo Chavez.
O’REILLY: That was wonderful.
COLMES: And now, I know that you people often think you — when I say “you people,” I mean, you — probably think that dictator DNA got off on him, and he’s going to come back and infect the United States because, look, he touched the guy.
O’REILLY: You like this thing?
COLMES: Do I like it?
O’REILLY: No, Miller didn’t like this whole thing.
COLMES: Oh, what a shock. What a shock that Miller didn’t like that.
O’REILLY: But you — you — what did you find worthy about it?
COLMES: Well, first of all, this shows — first of all, what do you, ignore the guy? When George W. Bush was at the UN and asked, “Will you ever — will you talk to Ahmadinejad if you’re in the same room?” “No, I won’t talk to him” — like a 5-year-old.
What do you, ignore somebody standing right next to you? Do we — because he touched him, put his hand on his shoulder, shook his hand? Do these people have a problem with Mao and Nixon? And of course, you worked for Richard Nixon. I mean, Nixon goes to China, do you have a problem with —
O’REILLY: It was Zhou and Nixon. Mao was not involved.
COLMES: There was —
O’REILLY: Yeah, Zhou.
COLMES: Did you have a problem with looking into Putin’s eyes and seeing his soul? Did you have a problem with any of the other —
O’REILLY: All right, but — OK, all of those are valid points, as long as you realize it was Zhou Enlai, not Mao Zedong.
COLMES: Zhou Enlai, OK.
O’REILLY: OK. Yeah, I don’t want to confuse you — the high school thing. But —
COLMES: Talk slowly and I think I’ll be OK.
