VIDEO-- Kristin Chenoweth's tribute to Weiner: "Popular" parody. Oh, and a top Weiner aide called an intern a c**t.


Chenoweth on Leno

Oh yes she di-id!

Kristin Chenoweth adapted her famous song "Popular" from the Broadway hit "Wicked" by belting out a tribute to Anthony Weiner, er, Carlos Danger.

I'm growing a little weary of all the coverage of this scandal, but when Team Danger (Weiner’s communications director Barbara Morgan) does things like trash a former intern (Olivia Nuzzi) by calling her a fame hungry “bitch” who “sucked” at her job, a “slutbag,” “twat,” and “cunt” while threatening to sue her, it renews my interest:

“And then like she had the fucking balls to like trash me in the paper. And be like, ‘His communications director was last the press secretary of the Department of Education in New Jersey,” Morgan said. “You know what? Fuck you, you little cunt. I’m not joking, I am going to sue her.”

By the way, Olivia Nuzzi's profile now reads: "Slutbag, twat and cunt. Writer for NSFWCORP."

Nuzzi said she accepted Morgan’s apology in a post on her Twitter page Wednesday morning.

VIDEO response to Jim Carrey's gun song parody: "Just like in your're talking out your ass"


tweet jim carrey guns

jim carrey spoof guns

Here is Jim Carrey's Funny or Die video "Cold Dead Hand" spoofing gun enthusiasts and mocking one-time NRA spokesman Charlton Heston. The song is available on iTunes:

Now here is Reason TV's response. They should leave the song parodies to professional comedians. See, the first rule of comedy is, it has to be funny.

By the way, Remy, Jim Carrey's movie guns shoot blanks, they don't kill people. They're fake, they're props, they aren't real. The guns he refers to in his Cold Dead Hand spoof do kill people, they aren't fake, they're real:


Remy & have a rebuttal to Jim Carrey's anti-gun song, Cold Dead Hand.


Sometimes dudes minds are skewed
and they choose to go a-killin'
Because they saw a Batman villain
killing, well...ring a bell?

Sometimes stars get armed guards
When they make a million buck-ers
Then call you heartless mother fuckers
to want the those with fame?

Polio and smallpox they no longer kill en masse
Because of vaccinations they are a thing of the past
But you tell parents to skip them and the science you contrast
Because just like in your're talking our your ass

It takes a talking ass
to oppose a vaccination
when your PhD is in
making funny faces

It takes a talking ass
to tell people they can't arm when
You don't walk around
without an armed bodyguard

It takes a talking ass
to call fans dumb and demented
When you are the one
who wants something uninvented

It takes a talking ass
to be out there passing blame
when you've shot someone
on every TV ever made


VIDEO: Obama's Fiscal Cliff Riff [Uncensored]


I have a brand new Twitter pal, Ron Butler (@RonnieButler), who has talent coming out of his ears. Need proof? Read his bio above. Need more? Why, here's some now!

Seriously, watch these. There are only two, they're short, and they're excellent.

Here's his first one from 2010, "Obama! A Modern U.S. President":

Here's his latest, "Obama's Fiscal Cliff Riff" (NSFW or the kiddies only because of a couple of the usual strong words here and there):


Obama sings a folksy ditty about the impending fiscal cliff.

The fiscal cliff is a recently-coined term referring to the effects that could result in tax increases, spending cuts and a corresponding reduction in the US budget deficit beginning in 2013 if existing laws are not changed by the end of 2012. The deficit — the difference between what the government takes in and what it spends — is expected to be reduced by roughly half beginning in the first days of 2013.

This sharp decrease in the deficit in such a short period of time is known as the fiscal cliff. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates the sudden reduction will probably lead to a recession in early 2013 with the pace of economic activity picking up by late 2013.

The laws leading to the fiscal cliff include the expiration of the Bush tax cuts and planned spending cuts under the Budget Control Act of 2011. This law was enacted as a compromise to resolve a dispute concerning the public debt ceiling. Some major programs, like Social Security, Medicaid, federal pay (including military pay and pensions), and veterans' benefits, are exempted from the spending cuts. Spending for defense, federal agencies and cabinet departments would be reduced through broad, shallow cuts referred to as budget sequestration.


VIDEO snarkitude-- Mitt Romney: "I'm the whitest white man in the USA!"


Snarkitude! ... Or is it?



Mitt Romney parody in song. Romney spoof video musical.

I'm a Mormon whose ethic is work and no play
I've been running for the White House since Truman passed away
I'll never see the world in shades of gray
I'm the whitest white man in the USA

I'd amend the Constitution and end Roe v. Wade
I would make refuting Darwin a religious crusade
I'd wipe away Iran with a nuclear grenade
I'm the whitest white man in the USA
Obama for sure is a commie MITT
His blood isn't blue
There's a rumor he's a Jew
He doesn't look like me or you
Now listen to me
Our Secre'try of State is a lesbo
The cabinet all reeks
The Country's run by Bolsheviks
We're going broke just like the Greeks
Why, because I say so! GROUP
He says so
I have homes in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and LA
And built a concrete fence to keep the Immigrants away
And then he rested it was on the seventh day
I'm the whitest white man in the USA

I'm against same sex marriage 'though Paul Ryan's cute like me
There are times I have wished that I was born a she
So then he'd be able to hit off the ladies tee
He's the whitest white man in the galaxy
Bain is the bane of my existence
Oh, sure, it made me rich
But defending it's a bitch
It's like praising Newt Gingrich
Who is a fruitcake


VIDEO: Remember The Brady Bunch? Meet The Romney Bunch!



If you didn't think Mitt Romney's foray into the birther movement yesterday was evidence enough that his campaign has stooped to dog whistling to the most extreme elements in the Republican Party, just look who he's surrounding himself with in Tampa. A running mate who wants to voucherize Medicare, GOP Governors who have attacked workers and/or worked to undermine women's health (transvaginal ultrasounds anyone?), a former GOP Senator who wants to outlaw contraception and a current one who would have, like Romney, let Detroit go bankrupt. Then there's the current Senator who proposed letting employers dictate to women their health care choices and the sitting Governor who has slashed education funding to the bone. And then there's the turncoat who's just in all of this for himself.

All this might seem like a motley crew to some - but to us it's the "Romney Bunch."

An instant classic.
