Jimmy, I prefer to call him Bill KristolMETH! :-)

Good thing Ben Mankiewiecz and Robert Yasumura were there, because Jimmy’s ‘I don’t care as long as it doesn’t affect me directly’ attitude was a real let down.

Ana-Maria, I was playing up my disinterest for laughs, sorry to let you down, but I was kidding around.

Jimmy,

Love your commedy – truly do – I think you hit an all time high when a few weeks back when you spoke about Chris Matthews book – great blend of political insight (going back to the eighties and commedy).

Last night was a bit of a bummer, I think you all over reacted to the comment made by Rush … I think of myself as independant and see issues with both the left and right … Rush makes an ass out of himself many time, but the Oscar comment wasn’t one of them.

He was simply pointing out the hollywood bias …. You all left out a key point – he was responding to the same observation that was made by Elene Degeneres … See quote below …

I think hollywood can be too far left – I saw 12 years a slave and though it was an amazing movie – I also thought Lone Survivor was a great movie that showed hummanity on both sides of the war …

Love your commedy – think it would be better if the viewpoints were a bit more independant/objective at times ….

The DEGENERES: Anything can happen, so many different possibilities. Possibility number one: 12 Years A Slave wins Best Picture. (applause) Possibility number two: You’re all racists. (laughter)

RUSH: Remember, now, all good comedy must be rooted in truth. There’s no way that movie was not gonna win. If it was the only thing that movie won, it was gonna win best picture. There was no way. It didn’t matter if it was good or bad. I haven’t seen it. It was going to be win. It had the magic word in the title, “slave.” And here was the announcement by Will Smith some three and a half hours later

Hey Jimmy,

You’ve finally made it. The right-wing concern trolls have arrived.

Man I love your podcasts so much. I didn’t save this for bedtime podcast story time. Instead I listened to this for nappy podcast time. I woke up feeling sick. I think that is because of the republicunts like Paul Ryan that made me feel this way.

I virtually hug you.

I love the premium content. It make for a perfect bed time story at 5am. I ate my dinner at about 2am. I have a screwed up life. I love you. You are a sweetie pi panda bear. Thank you for the laughs. I needed them.

Regarding “right-wing concern trolls” …

Great point. A very intelligent and thoughtful response.

Glad you are out there working so dilligently to make the world a better place to live ….

Using terms like “Smiley McKill-Kill” very funny …

Use terms like “republicunts” offensive and nasty …

Hey Anonymous: Sorry you don’t understand the problem with what Rush said, and don’t understand why Ellen’s joke is funny either. You should re-listen to the segment, if you still don’t’ catch on then I can’t help you. But glad you like the show!

Hey Jimmy,

When the app is ready, is it just going to be for Iphone, or will it be available on android too?

Appreciate the feedback Jimmy.

I thought Ellen’s joke was funny and that Rush had a valid point noting that comedy was rooted in truth.

However, re-listening to the segment, I agree, Rush deserved the criticism.

I think the show could of been more interesting if you discussed the point that Rush made – there is an element of truth in the comedy – and then discussed the difference between the two and how Rush took it to a darker place —

In any event, love the show and your commitment to working through all this BS …

Anonymous, the Ellen joke was funny because it was over the top absurd, not because it had a ring of truth to it. She said that if “12 Years A Slave” didn’t win that meant they (Hollywood liberals) were all racists. And she was saying that to a bunch of lefty liberals in hollywood, so that is why it is funny, it was absurd, not true.

Hope that helps.

The idea that Hollywood is leftist is so insane it goes beyond funny and into the level of stultifying. Hollywood has been pushing a right wing racist imperialist agenda of violence since before all of us were born. Exactly how many movies have been made attacking slavery anyway? This is the possibly the most evil thing our Nation has ever done, and it has been whitewashed by Hollywood and pretty much everyone else. One movie does not a leftist agenda make. And by the way, when was the last time Hollywood made a pro-Union movie? Much less one that was pro-socialist.

On a different topic, Poland had a significant and formidable army before the German invasion in WW 2, and was considered nearly a world power. The myth of the carvery charges was debunked by Shirer in Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. Most armies at the wars start were not fully mechanized, and the Germans used horses extensively in Poland and throughout the war. The idea of Polish military incompetence is a racist lie. The reason the Germans beat the Poles was partly because of the use of Blitzkrieg tactics and partly because the Poles had command and control issues similar but not as bad as those that the French suffered from. The Polish Air force was also a significant foe, and Poles continued to fight the Germans inside Poland and with the allied armies when the west opened second front.

As to the Ukraine, while Robert is right to point out the strategic importance of the area to Russia, the real story is the US is attempting to destabilize the Ukraine in order to extend our power in the region and to goad the Russians.
