Most commentators trying to figure out the appeal of Donald Trump are looking in the wrong place. They try to intuit some kind of ideological appeal, when the candidate's hook is purely visceral. Trump hits GOP voters in the gut when he says: "We don't have any wins any more."
I must admit I got it wrong when I predicted a few weeks ago that Perry would stay in the race longer than Jim Gilmore, George Pataki, Lindsey Graham, Rick Santorum, and Bobby Jindal. But that doesn't mean we can't have some fun betting who will drop out next!
Even though NBC, Macy's, and a long list of other sponsors fired him in July for his comments about immigrants from Mexico, Donald Trump is like the Energizer Bunny. He keeps going and going.
The film attempts to convey the drama, pain, chaos, confusion and occasional horror of that year for those grunts. It also shows some of the lighter moments of their band of brothers: How they lived, looked out for each other, how they played and how some died. It is not pretty, but it is a beautiful effort.
While the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal in all fifty states, the marijuana initiative is having an appropriately slower, but steady climb into legality. That said, we thought we'd take a look at some of cinema's greatest proponents of the stoner lifestyle.
Google thinks it's so great. That it's the best search engine in the world. Then why can it not answer any of my simplest, most pressing questions?
It's certainly no secret that celebrities enjoy the finer things in life. Many have used their larger-than-life paychecks to collect an impressive inventory of very fancy memorabilia. Here are 10 of the most impressive collections amassed by superstars.
Mental health is not having a problem. It's how you address all of the challenges in your life. It's how you handle stress, break-ups, rejection, lack of sleep, loss and everything else. We need a clear definition of mental health as a baseline.
Let's face it, if Don Rickles, Joan Rivers and Buddy Hackett had all crawled under the bed covers, Ross could have been their outspoken love child searching for his baby daddy.
"The first time you marry for love, the second for money, and the third for companionship." ( Jackie Kennedy Onassis) A few weeks ago I was skimming...
These 10 headline-making Hollywood celebs could easily be confused with some of the Bard's best-loved characters.
The only people I can recall, or find via research, that Palin, Hannity and Beck have defended using the freedom of speech argument, are the ones that got into trouble for making comments against blacks or homosexuals. Could that really be possible?
Friends don't let friends commit hashtag crimes. Hashtagging is for tracking, indexing and humoring. As with anything you do, hashtag with consciousness and awareness.
Wow. Today I had a real eye opener. I received a Thomasville Furniture flyer in the mail addressed to my ex-husband's new wife. This is upsetting on two fronts: 1. Why is she shopping at Thomasville when I am waiting for the year end clearance sale at Rooms To Go?
In August, Entertainment Weekly published an interview with Joss Whedon in which, at one point, he laments about the state of movies today relying too much on already established popular culture. He does so by complaining about one particular scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom: "A movie has to be complete within itself; it can't just build off the first one or play variations. You know that thing in Temple of Doom where they revisit the shooting trick? ... That's what you don't want. And I feel that's what all of culture is becoming -- it's becoming that moment."
