Joy Behar Strikes Again (Video)

The menacing, hateful Joy Behar opened her mouth and stuck her foot in it in regards to the upcoming Super Bowl commercial with Tim Tebow and his Mom. Tebow and his Mom speak about choosing life over abortion. She said that Tebow: “just as easily have been a rapist pedophile” Really? That’s just sick. What an awful thing to say but not uncommon for the rotund, hate-filled leftist talk show host. But she’s Read More...

The Washington Post’s Jason Reid Reports that the Susan Lucci of the NFL, London Fletcher, is finally getting his due: The Saints’ victory over the Vikings in the NFC Championship game means there’s an opening at linebacker in the Pro Bowl, with Jonathan Vilma playing in the Super Bowl. And that means that London Fletcher, elected to the team as an alternate, will replace Vilma in the game next Sunday Read More...

Conan O’Brien’s Exit Interview (Video)

Steve Carrell stops by to give Conan O’Brien his exit interview from NBC. Pretty hilarious stuff. I’m gonna miss ‘CoCo.’ Hopefully, he ends up someplace that wants him like Comedy Central to team with Stephen Colbert & Jon Stewart. That would be a great two hour block of comedy. One can only hope…
