Late Night Video — Argentinian Sports Channel Trolls Donald Trump

Oh yes, this is completely brilliant. The Copa America Centenario is a major soccer event — this year is its 100th anniversary and this is the first time it is being hosted by the United States. So this Argentinian sports channel decided to make use of Trump’s xenophobic and racist BS to showcase the skills of their team — especially Lionel Messi.

Shep Smith says: “These are the facts — we do not have an outbreak of ebola in the United States. Nowhere.” And he takes the media (radio and TV) to task for hyperventilating when it isn’t needed. Bravo, Mr. Smith. When he’s on, he’s on:

Late Night Video — The List of Rules for Women

Filed in National by on September 2, 2014 2 Comments

The incomparable Jay Smooth works in this new video (about 2 and a half minutes long) at trying to round up the current set of rules for women so that women can get their humanity respected. After trying to grapple with the ever changing rules that (mostly) men prescribe for women to be able to make their way unassaulted in the world for awhile, he does note that it might be easier to provide a list for men:”Hello, Asshole. Women are human beings.” BAM! Still, let the mansplaining begin.

Late Night Video — Robin Williams, RIP

Filed in Open Thread by on August 11, 2014 9 Comments

I’m really stunned at this evening’s news that Robin Williams died today, apparently of suicide. Many years ago I saw him in a Kansas City club — the second show. He was on a tear, and the audience was falling off of their chairs laughing. By the time they got to the club’s closing time, Williams had a ton of energy and the audience was game to stay — so the owner closed the club, charged people $5 or something (so he could claim it was a private club since he was keeping the bar open) and Williams went on for at least two hours more. And it was really interactive too — not only was he conversing with patrons (and then riffing off of the conversations), but he took suggestions for routines. Mostly from Shakespeare. It was utterly hysterical and really smart — you could tell that he knew the work he was riffing off of. I can’t imagine what he has been experiencing, but I know depression can be brutal. Even if you are someone that the world loved so very much.

Late Night Video — Bill Maher Shooting the Zombie Lies in the Head

Filed in National by on July 12, 2014 1 Comment

Zombie Lies. Perfect description of the perpetual GOP talking points — the ones they keep repeating even though they’ve been definitively proven to be a lie. But those lies/talking points never go away and the usual GOP suspects can pick up where they were 6 years ago, get in front of a TV camera and it is as though the past 6 years never happened. The lies keep coming back as do the liars that tell them. Maher here wants to know why they can keep saying them over and over again — my opinion is that the journalists who will tell you that their job is holding people accountable are also telling you a Zombie Lie. Bill Maher and his New Rules:

Late Night Video — “I’m the Guy Doin’ My Job, You Must Be the Other Guy!”

Filed in National by on July 11, 2014 0 Comments

This is President Obama earlier today in Texas talking about the complete uselessness of GOP obstruction (and lawsuits). I like him when he’s not really worried about reaching out to the GOP, and yet he always does. This is definitely dripping in well-deserved ridicule for the GOP and their no-show job ways, but he still invites them to work with him. Still — I REALLY wish that there was more of this from Democrats across the board. The GOP is absolutely vulnerable on the do-nothing charge and that should be part of the narrative from now until election day:

Late Night Video — John Oliver Fixes the Flaw in Climate Change Journalism

Filed in National by on July 6, 2014 3 Comments

Climate change is always reported as two opposing views — one side who *believes* and the other side that *does not believe*. Treating a science topic (it isn’t a *belief* topic) as though it was a political topic is one of the worst journalistic offences we are subject to, and we are subject to quite a few of them throughout the day. John Oliver takes note that this topic is always addressed as one for and one against, as though there was an equal amount of scientific evidence that climate change does not happen. He brilliantly works at a fairer debate — one that weights the conversation towards the evidence — hilarious:

Late Night Video — Feminist Terrorist Sleeper Cell

Filed in National by on June 7, 2014 24 Comments

Great video from representatives of the Lady Parts Justice Feminist Terrorist Sleeper Cell, a terrorist group responding to the crazy petition by one more exercise in bogus male victimization that is called “A Voice for Men” at Change.org asking the White House to classify Feminism as a Terrorist Group. I never thought of myself as terrorist material, but the Lady Parts Justice Feminist Sleeper Cell seems like my kind of terrorism:

Late Night Video — Common Core and Standardized Tests Make Kids Gay

So this is the end of the argument right? I mean, somehow this has to be the equivalent of Godwin’s law — As the discussion of Common Core and standardized testing grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving homosexuals approaches 1. How does that work for you? Because we have Rep. Charles Van Zant saying that the testing company providing FL standardized tests (and Common Core!) promotes homosexuality (approx 3 mins long):

Sister Simone is the leader of Nuns on the Bus, and she was on Bill Maher recently when Maher brought up the topic of Mitt Romney’s newfound support for a higher minimum wage. D’Souza tried trotting out the BS talking points and Sister Simone shows him that his talking points on poverty wages were a masked support for corporate welfare. I was on my feet and applauding at the end of this:

Late Night Video — Penis Pumps Paid for by Medicare

Filed in National by on March 17, 2014 2 Comments

And penile implants too. All the while no one in Congress or any of the schoolmarm crowd who think that women should pay for their own contraceptives never seem to want to ask men to pay for their Viagra, Cialis, penis pumps or even penile implants. Interesting values here, right? Penis pumps should be taxpayer funded while contraceptives should not be. Hmm. Samantha Bee from the Jon Stewart show takes a look at the hypocrisy:
