This is what Congress thinks is worth spending time on.
The screenwriter for 50 Shades of Grey says that they’re not even trying for an R-rating, and are just going straight for NC-17, which makes the casting all the more interesting.
Awkward is shaping up to be interesting this season, with Anthony Michael Hall joining the cast as a sadistic creative writing teacher, and Glee’s Nolan Gerard Funk signing on as a confident new prep school transfer. Can we have an ab-off?
Jimmy Kimmel grew up in Las Vegas, so he says it wasn’t unusual to see Liberace in a hairnet at the grocery store, or Sammy Davis, Jr. shopping in the kids section at Saks. But the eye opener was Siegfried. “Siegfried of Siegfried and Roy, he didn’t really work out at the gym that I went to when I was a kid occasionally. He would sit in the hot tub, and I couldn’t really figure out why he would never really work out and would only be in the hot tub. When I became an adult, I figured it out.”
Justin Bieber is set to host and act as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live. Good to know I can go to bed early that night.
This gay grandson is tired of all the heirlooms getting passed to his female relatives, and wants to know if it’s OK to speak up that he’d like some of the family history as well. Just because he’s not married with children doesn’t mean he wouldn’t appreciate some nice crystal.

Rush Limbaugh says that liberals want to normalize pedophilia. And he says that if you think that’s far-fetched, just look at gay marriage. “There is a movement on to normalize pedophilia, and I guarantee you your reaction to that is probably much the same as your reaction when you first heard about gay marriage. What has happened to gay marriage? It’s become normal — and in fact, with certain people in certain demographics it’s the most important issue in terms of who they vote for. So don’t pooh-pooh. There’s a movement to normalize pedophilia. Don’t pooh-pooh it. The people behind it are serious, and you know the left as well as I do. They glom onto something and they don’t let go. I just want to remind you, now, when you first heard about gay marriage — and I don’t mean to pick on gays. It’s not what I’m saying. It’s just something that was such a tremendous departure from accepted norms of the day. When you first heard about gay marriage, you pooh-poohed it.”
David Mixner wants to know who is funding the Log Cabin Republicans’ series of ads against Chuck Hagel. He knows it can’t be from their regular funds, and like the rest of us thinks the group is acting as a front to another organization like GLAAD did with AT&T and NGLTF did with gambling interests in Maryland. They can’t be that upset about a few comments he made, they endorsed Mitt Romney for president.
