5 People We Should Actually Impeach

5 People We Should Actually Impeach

Republicans are talking about impeaching President Obama. YAWN. Can I just point out that we talked about impeaching Bush, too? Is this going to be a thing we do with every President? It’s 2014. In terms of eight-year terms, his is almost over. Politicians will start officially announcing their candidacies in February and we’ll be so distracted by that circus that we’ll all but forget about what the executive branch of our government is doing. The impeachment process takes so long that all the pro-impeachers really have to do is pipe up about it every few weeks and wait and he’ll be out of office in the same amount of time anyway – and they know that. It’s not a serious threat, it’s just a diversion.

If eighteen percent of Americans believe that we should be able to use the impeachment process to “register dissatisfaction with White House policies” (OH COME ON PEOPLE, BUCK UP), I can think of worthier candidates for impeachment than President Obama. For example, maybe we should impeach: Keep reading »

James Franco Tries His Damnedest To Make Stephen Colbert Break Character

James Franco
Nice Try, James

I still can’t tell whether James Franco’s personality is a joke or not, but when he’s with Stephen Colbert, an especially bubbly side of him seems to come out. On his latest visit to “The Colbert Report,” he tried to get Stephen to break character when asking about his departure to head to “The Late Show.” No dice, but good try I guess, James! (Also, he’s Team Orlando Bloom in the Bieber/Bloom fight, which suddenly makes us much more sympathetic to him.) [NYMag.com]

James Franco Publishes Short Story In VICE About Lindsay Lohan

  • James Franco published a short story in VICE, which may or may not be fictional, about Lindsay Lohan coming to his hotel room at the Chateau Marmont one night and him reading her some short stories by J.D. Salinger. This is a very long-winded and pretentious way of denying (again) that you fucked her, James. [VICE]

Are We Really Surprised That James Franco Has No Space On His Bookshelf For Women Writers?

What Your Bookshelf Says
Ever wondered what your bookshelf says about you? Read More »

James Franco, in addition to being an actor, performance artist, director and avid Instagrammer, is a writer of both fiction and poetry. He’s a big reader too — he’s currently starring on Broadway in “Of Mice and Men” — and one of his many upcoming projects includes a film adaptation of William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury. In a recent interview with Shelf Awareness, Franco discussed some of the writers from contemporary literature who’ve influenced and had an impact on him, both as a writer and as a person. David Foster Wallace! Cormac McCarthy! Great writers indeed. But of the writers discussed in the interview — including Franco’s Top 11 list of all time faves — not a single one was a woman. (Wait, I lied. Asked to name a book he bought based on the cover alone, Franco offered up Madonna’s Sex. So yeah, let’s not count that one.)

I would sigh, but I am not the slightest bit surprised. Keep reading »
