I have a new favorite contestant on “America’s Got Talent,” one who I think rivals Prince Poppycock in grandeur. His name is Steve Retchless and he is a “pole-fessional.” In other words, he’s a pole dancer. “You don’t usually think of males in pole dancing,” said Howie Mandel after his intro.

Together these seven will be … opening a restaurant on the Sunset Strip with the help of the famed Dolce Group. One lucky winner will become an actual partner in the venture.
The first clip of the show has been released, and it focuses on Heidi (actually, so does the second). It leads me to ask many questions… Keep reading »
One of the more cuckoo claims of anti-abortion extremists is that abortion is all about “black genocide.” You know, Americans want abortion legal mostly so we can cut down on the black population or something. That is the flawless logic behind these, these and these billboards targeted at black people in urban hubs like New York City and Atlanta. The latest WTF-ery is a new movie called “Gates Of Hell” about … wait for it … black men who hunt down abortion providers as “payback” for the “genocide.” Keep reading »
