Bernie Goldberg is the hard nosed reporter who wrote the book “The 100 People That Are Screwing Up America”. In which Bernie included people like Barbara Streisand, but failed to include anyone responsible for the illegal Iraq war. Nor did any of the War Criminals that ordered torture, make it in, and not even one Wall Street banker made the book. So we know he’s a got a good detective’s eye.
Well Bernie and Bill Oreilley spend some quality time trying to confuse the Trayvon Martin case for their own viewers. They’re the kind of dumb guys that can’t understand why this killing is causing such a stir. They pretend that the only reason this killing is getting attention is because Zimmerman was white and Trayvon was black, leaving out the part about the the police knowingly letting the
killer go free, you know, the important part. It is some of the best race baiting I have seen on Fox since way back in the middle of last week.
Bill Oreilley calls in to defend himself hilariously, and we get a call from our old pal Herman Cain, and if it was possible Herman got even funnier! Plus Tuesdays with Moron is back and he has figured out the real reason the Trayvon Martin case is getting so much attention.
In the Oh My God! segment we are treated to a sound bite of fear and sexual repression from “American Family Association” radio host and Fox News contributor Sandy Rios. She is certain that if you view pornography you will eventually have sex with children. She also connects the dots between porn and the election of a certain president, can you guess which one?
Robert DiNero told a very funny joke at an Obama fundraiser that he has already apologized for. He named the wives of the presidential contenders and asked “Is AMerica really ready for a white first lady?”. Yes that is the joke that he apologized for after Newt Gingrich was pretend offended for ALL of his wives over it. And yes, Newt points out that Robert Di Nero’s joke is EXACTLY LIKE WHAT RUSH DID! That didn’t take long, did it?
Rick Santorum says that the “economy” is the central issue in this campaign. Yeah sure it is Rick, right
after abortion, gay marriage, contraception, pornography and all those naughty thoughts about your penis. He even said that president “favors pornographers over children”. Candy Crowley incredulously asks him to explain that ridiculous statement and, god bless him, he repeats it.
Larry Flynt calls in to support the candidacy of Rick Santorum. Yes, I was shocked too. Turns out, It’s not that he likes Rick Santorum, its that sexual shame is the backbone of the porn industry and nobody throws around more of it than good ‘ole Rick.
How many churches emphasize serving the poor as much as the Bible itself does? Would the world look the way it does if all believers followed these commands? Instead, the loudest christians today have infected our culture with the idea that capitalism = holiness, and the results of capitalism, no matter how brutal, is always moral.
They preach the gospel of commerce, that when jesus told us to serve our fellow man he didn’t mean to volunteer at a homeless shelter, or directly help someone who is down and out, no, what jeusus really meant was that we need to set up unregulated markets that concentrate wealth in the hands of a few, and let the help and aid trickle down to the widows and orphans.
Meet Bud Pilgrim, the leader of “Integrity Leadership” Christian ministry. He’s sick of all this talk about being “in service to your fellow man” bullshit. What he does is give chirstians excuses to be greedy and sleep soundly while ignoring the needs of the least among us, and we break down his message.
Our look at hypocrisy today: Newt Gingrich being caught by Wolf Blitzer in a double standard for criticism of U.S. presidents apologizing for atrocities committed by Americans against Muslim nations. Yes, you read it right, Newt got Caught in a cotradcitory double standard by WOLF BLITZER. Getting taken down by the corporate talking point repeater Wolf Blitzer is quite a feat, reminiscent of Sarah Palin getting exposed by that muckracker Katie Courick.
Sexist joke or crazy liberal over reaction? Frank joke about Rick Santorum’s daughter has caused quite a stir on the Best Of The Left show and we air some of
the criticism we received from the listeners and break them down. And yes, of course we make fun of them and use comedy to point out their flawed logic, contradictory thinking, and humorlessness.
Tueday’s with Moron is back and Moron finally tells us what happened to him and where he has been for the last few months. The Rush Limbaugh controversy hasn’t slipped past Moron and he wants to know if we are castigating Bill Maher like we are Rush. Plus we find out what Moron got Therese for Valentines Day, hint: it helps her clean the dryer!
Kelly Carlin was generous enough to sit down and tell us whatever we wanted to know about growing up with the funniest guy in the world as your dad. She is currently performing “A Carlin Home Companion: Life, Love and Laughter with George”, which is about exactly what it sounds like.
Our conversation with Kelly was thoroughly enjoyable , insightful and often funny. And I am very proud to say that contained inside this episode is what Kelly described as her “favorite question ever”, so there’s that. Plus we get to hear George Carlin sing “Everything is Okay Anyway”.
If you aren’t familiar with Mike MacRae, get ready. His mind-blowingly hilarious Rip Torn impression is in full force in this weeks “Hollywood Drunk Tank: Oscar Edition!”, and leads off the show. Rip tells about the time he got kicked out of the Oscars for heckling Jeff Bridges, and how sick he is of seeing foreigners prancing around the Oscar stage.
Sean Young got herself kicked out of the Governors Ball that she wasn’t invited too after she slapped a security guard when she got caught. But Rip tells us that Sean is no stranger to the Whoscow. In fact, Rip and Sean used to be old drinking buddies, people used to call them “Young & Torn”. It is an episode of Drunk Tank that is not to be missed, and remember, Celebrities-their just like you, except drunk and fucking beautiful!
See you March 24th for Left, Right & Ridiculous at the Hollywood Improv Lab! Special guests Frank Conniff, David Feldman and more!
False Equivalencies : Did you know that going on a three day tirade that uses lies and misinformation to slander and sexually demean a female law student is exactly the same thing as calling Sarah Pallin a “twat”? Well according to a lot of people who don’t
have a clue, it is. Yes because, if you don’t think about it, a bomb throwing Governor with a penchant for misinformation, hate rhetoric, and dog whistle politics is exactly the same thing as law student testifying on behalf of women’s health.
We also find out that making an ironic joke about sexuality is exactly the same thing as a well thought out, deliberate, ugly, slanderous, misogynistic, mean spirited, continual three day character assassination and campaign of intimidation by the most powerful media figure with the biggest megaphone in the country, against a powerless citizen.
As I have explained on my KPFK show, ridicule aimed at the powerful is called “comedy”. Ridicule aimed at the powerless is called “bullying”. I have not heard anyone else in the media make that point, and am always stunned to see people on television talking about this without ever mentioning this fact.
Don’t worry, we didn’t stop watching the bachelor, and yes, it got even dumber. Why Stef and I like to poke fun at thisparticular reality show is hard to say.
Maybe it is because it turns normal dating rituals and norms on its head. Or maybe it is because it is fun to watch people try to pretend there isn’t a camera crew in their face the
entire time they are trying to fall in love for ever.
entire time they are trying to fall in love for ever.
Maybe it’s because they just say and do lots of mind blowingly dumb stuff that brings us joy to make fun of? Either way, we play two more clips from the show and make fun of them.
We are joined by my good pal and hilarious comedian Keith Lowell Jensen who treats us to my favorite knock-knock joke of all time.
