Celebrity Idiots of the Day

Today features a three course serving of idiots.

First up, a guy I used to cheer on, Hulk Hogan. In a Rolling Stone interview, Hogan said:

"I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like OJ, cutting everybody's throat," he told the magazine. "You live half a mile from the 20,000-square-foot home you can't go to anymore, you're driving through downtown Clearwater [Florida] and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife ... I totally understand OJ. I get it."

I've actually felt a bit sorry for Hogan lately. His wife is a gold digging whore, his son is an idiot, and his daughter is a no talent skank riding on daddy's coat tails. Hogan's divorce has been very ugly, and it does seem as though he's getting the short end of things. Clearly, he ain't the brightest bulb, though. But, that's no excuse to be making the kind of remarks he did.

Our second course features Jamie Foxx. Well known for being egomaniacal, Foxx went off on Miley Cyrus on his Sirius radio show. According to several sources, after hearing about some feud Miley has with Radiohead he told her to "grow up and make a sex tape." and "Who is Miley Cryus? The one with all the gums? She needs to get a gum transplant!" and "little white b*tch" among other things. He's since apologized. Wonder if it was sincere . . . or had anything to do with a new movie coming out?

Lastly, the main course, and well known celebrity retard, Janeane Garofalo. She had this to say about the recent tea party and the people who attended, from the Washington TImes:

"Let's be very honest about what this is about. This is not about bashing Democrats. It's not about taxes. They have no idea what the Boston Tea party was about. They don't know their history at all. It's about hating a black man in the White House," she said on MSNBC's "The Countdown" with Keith Olbermann Thursday evening. "This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that."

Olbermann did not once try to challenge her on those assertions.

The actress went on to describe the brain size of typical "right-winger, Republican or conservative or your average white power activist."

"Their synapses are misfiring. ... It is a neurological problem we are dealing with," she said. This isn't the first time she's offered this analysis, either. Ms. Garofalo said similar things about Alaskan GOP Governor Sarah Palin's brain last February in an interview with an environmental blog.

The actress went on to bash the GOP on MSNBC Thursday because it had "crystallized into the white power movement" as well as Fox News, which she said has captured the "Klan demo[graphic]."

"Who else is Fox talking to? Urban older white guys and their girlfriends who suffer from Stockholm Syndrome," she said.

Demented, delusional, and completely devoid of any intellect . . . she is the poster girl for morons.

Are you full?

Good grief!! That woman has always had several screws loose, but she's really lost it. Does she really believe what she's saying? And does she think anyone really cares what she has to say? Blech.

Actually a lot of people have been wondering about the whole tea party thing. The Boston Tea Party was about taxation without representation. No one represented the colonists interests in the British parliament. They had no say.

The protestors here have a say. They have a vote. They have representation. They just don't like their representation. While no one in America would argue their rights to gather and to protest, quiet a few people are wondering why they are trying to link it to the march toward independence in the 1700's tea party - it's not a cry of patriotism, merely an assertion of the rights already guaranteed by the American government.

A lot of Americans are honestly puzzled about the protest against paying taxes too... the previous Republican administration consistantly raised taxes on the working class in favor of cuts for the higher earners and wealthiest of businesses. The current administration has reduced taxes for the middle class, and the lower tax tables are now putting more money into most people's paychecks every week. I work in payroll for a moderate sized company, I know this for a fact.

So what, exactly is the protest about?

First, this post wasn't about the tea party or what it stood for. It was about three people who have exhibited rather moronic behavior.

Second, I could care less what Jeanine thinks. But she not only has a captive audience and is wrong, but also resorts to insults to make herself look . . . what? Smart?

I know. I'm doing the same thing. Don't care.

Third, I'll actually respond to your question in a separate post. One I've been meaning to write about the whole stimulus issue in general.

Until then I'll say this . . . you don't get it. And as much as the left wants to make people believe certain things about the right, your comments are about as lemming-esque as they come from the left. Right out of the playbook. Just as the right is often accused. And I agree many on the right spew from the same talking points.

Lastly, there are more than just payroll taxes.

You're right about one thing - you're wrong (I DO get it - not much there to get, really, you don't like Obama and you're bitter about the ousting of the Republicans) and you insult people to make yourself look .... what? Smart doesn't really fit, neither for you nor Ms G, whose viewpoint on racism reasons for the 'tea parties' I do not agree with.

How about: pompous, arrogant, self-righteous, hypocritical, devisive,.... mean.

Wow. You couldn't be more wrong had you actually tried. But, be patient, oh erroneous one, my post to explain it will come soon.

As far as insults and such . . . evs. People insult me. I can take it. In fact, I find it humorous. I'm not trying to take any higher road. Especially when it pertains to the hollywood elitist types. Most of them have their heads so far up their butt . . .

But, I do try to be civil to people who post here. Snarky, yes. If you think I've insulted you, I apologize.

How about: pompous, arrogant, self-righteous, hypocritical, devisive,.... mean.You forgot self deprecating . . . and pig.
