This Film is not yet Rated

The essential message of this film? The movie rating system we use in the US - which has a huge impact on the success of individual films - is basically meaningless, as there are no quantifiable standards.

Rusty DePass = Racist Jackass

Like the idea of an ignorant, racist Republican is shocking in any way. And also, for a racist-ish comment of my own: could this guy be an uglier, chubbier rich-white-guy? Damn.

In a comment on his Facebook page [you’re too old for facebook, asshole] South Carolina GOP activist and former chairman of the state elections commission Rusty DePass made the following comment about a gorilla that had escaped from a local zoo: "I’m sure it’s just one of Michelle’s ancestors - probably harmless."

He’s admitted he was referring to Michelle Obama, saying, "I am as sorry as I can be if I offended anyone. The comment was clearly in jest."

Offended anyone? "In jest"? Dude - WTF is your deal? Of course that’s offensive - what kind of idiot could even pretend to suggest he didn’t realize how people would take that kind of comment?

You’re a racist, and an asshole - and I hope the next time we hear about you it’s because someone’s smacked the bigot out of you [I’m available for said bigot-smacking all week - hit me on my cell].

Does anyone know how the GOP reacted to this? I don’t suppose the party as a whole had the sense to denounce his comments.

Seriously - if you can’t help but say ignorant things about the skin-tone of the first family: at least have the cajones to stand by your comments. People will still hate you for saying it, and you’ll look like an antiquated clown - but at least you won’t come off as a p@$$y.

Also, please, PLEASE, don’t go arguing some nonsense about evolution - we all know what the deal is when some white guy starts comparing gorillas to African Americans. I’ve already read some comments on other sites by some fool Repubs who are claiming this is a creationism vs evolution thing - which is complete and utter BS.

Even FOX News is Scared

Well, some of FOX News, anyways. But still - the fact that even these ninjas here are getting worried about the vitriolic nonsense people are spitting is a testament to how out of control people are getting.

Obama Orders Colbert’s Haircut

Who else would go to Iraq to perform for the troops and never break character [at least on camera]? He even went so far as to declare ‘victory’ - based on the fact that the media in the US no longer discuss the war, so we must have won. But the sitting President ordering that a general cut your hair? That’s feckin’ hilarious…

Really tho - look at this woman’s expression! She looks like a giddy teenager who just got to meet her favorite Backstreet Boy or something…

Get it together, Angela!

Nor do Filipinos Make Idle Threats…

MANILA, Philippines a€" Alec Baldwin’s joke about getting a Filipino mail-order bride provoked a sharp response in the Philippines, with one senator saying Monday that the "30 Rock" star faces violence if he ever visits.

Baldwin, 51, who is divorced with a teenage daughter, said in a May 12 interview on "The Late Show" with David Letterman that he would love to have more children.

The Emmy-winning actor quipped that he was "thinking about getting a Filipino mail-order bride at this point … or a Russian one."

I guess he’s gonna have to bring Jayne with him for protection (for all you Firefly fans).

I mean, does the screenshot not tell you enough already? Finally, some responsible person has come to the forefront with enough courage to make a site dedicated to the worst, most non-ninja-worthy mofos in the world.AA Oh wait we’re talking about HuffPo here…

The catalogue, to date, is a little slim, but, by no means inaccurate.AA I don’t agree with all the picks, but it’s a hell of a read.

This is probably the best concept for a site since MNP.AA It’s interesting how all the best things in life combine synchronistically, eh, whatwith the Lake-show in the playoffs?AA I’m thinking about adding Jay Leno and Sasha Vujachic.AA And, for all you basketball fans out there, guess what color yellow and blue make when combined?
