Once again, a few headlines you just can't make up:
Little diversity among this year’s Oscar nominees
Apparently, for the first time in ten years, none of the actors, directors and producers nominated for the Academy Awards are black, which has been noticed by the NAACP among others. Can somebody tell me why it's so important for black people to be nominated for the Oscars just for the sake of having black people among the nominees? Whatever happened to actors being nominated and awarded Oscars for their performances, or directors for their achievements, or producers for bringing us the best films of the year? Some people need a hobby.
Dem lawmaker blames Rush Limbaugh for deranged death threats after host’s impersonation of Hu Jintao’s Chinese
Okay, so a state legislator in California is offended by Rush Limbaugh doing a Chinese impersonation, and now is trying to link him to death threats he has received from someone else? Aside from the absurdity of this State Senator, Leland Yee from San Francisco (why doesn't that surprise me?), in demanding an apology over something he perceived as a slight, this same individual is now attributing the death threat to Rush's supposed hate-spewing. Why do I get the feeling this guy is just looking to get his name out there in the news?
Steele on RNC chair loss after successful midterms: ‘Republican Justice’
Just like he said when running for re-election earlier this month, former RNC Chairman Michael Steele in recent interviews cited last year's election victories as the result of his two years in office. The problem I find with his insistence here is the fact the GOP is currently in debt of over $20 million, and most importantly, there's the oft-ignored factor of the Tea Parties in the 2010 victories, which calls into question just how much (or how little) of the victories can truly be credited to his leadership as RNC Chairman. Mr. Steele, how many people really believe you when you say “We won”?
