Affleck

Celebs Need Health Care—Just Like Us!

Who knew that Reese Witherspoon window-shops for shoes?  Or that Ben Affleck glues elaborate doll houses together?  Or that Jeremy Piven eats what appears to be gruel on a lush outdoor patio?  These intimate celebrity vignettes were captured for the AARP’s ad campaign for its “Divided We Fail” intiative calling for “red, blue ... liberal, conservative” (and, apparently, “rich, famous”) Americans to unite for the causes of health care and long-term financial security.

Giuliani:  Military Action Against Iran Not Off the Table

Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani went on “Meet the Press” on Sunday to talk about his chances for winning the nomination (he’s ahead in some states) and his stance on several key issues, including the U.S.‘s relations with Iran. It looks like he’s still siding with the hawks.

Ahmadinejad Declares Victory

The “Mosaic Intelligence Report” examines the fallout of the new NIE report, which says Iran suspended its nuclear weapons program in 2003: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is being touted as the winner in the Middle East—except in Israel—and George Bush’s America is being called the loser.

Olbermann: Bush Either ‘Pathological Presidential Liar’ or ‘Idiot-in-Chief’

Not one to mince words, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann ripped into President Bush for beating the WWIII war drums about Iran months after the gist of the NIE report on Iran was known to the White House:  “It is the nightmare scenario of political science fiction: a critical juncture in our history and ... a president manifestly unfit to serve and, behind him in the vice presidency, an unapologetic warmonger who has long been seeing a world visible only to himself.”

Jenna Bush Calls Dad on ‘Ellen’

Ellen DeGeneres put Jenna Bush on the spot on Wednesday’s episode of “Ellen,” asking her if she couldn’t, you know, just pick up the phone and talk to her dad, “like, right now.”  So, the first daughter, in turn, put President Bush on the spot, nervously asking him if he was mad at her for the impromptu call.

Sheppard

Jesus, Then the Dinosaurs, Then the Greeks ...

Here’s an easy question: What’s worse, someone who doesn’t know anything about the world or someone who tries to spread his or her ignorance to others on national television? “The View’s” Sherri Shepard, who once admitted she didn’t know if the world was flat, insists that “Jesus came first before [the Greeks and Romans]” and “I don’t think anything predated Christians.” Really? What about Pangea?
