“Easy to imagine Fox News blaming the Vatican for Benghazi.”

Another snark-filled guest post by the one, the only Will Durst: RED POPE GREEN POPE He gets under their skin like termites in a boathouse. Drives them crazier than Hillary Clinton and Yoko Ono dancing on a gay pride parade float. He’s the itch you can’t scratch. The thorn in the palm of their paw. The 3- inch scratch on their favorite Ted Nugent album. Talking about that hot new Catholic sensation, Pope Frankie. At first it was his general commie pink yellow rat bastard predilection for focusing on the poor. “The poor. The poor. Why is it with him, always [...]

“Shake More Hands, Drop Fewer Bombs”

I think I said it all yesterday, except for the "I told you so." Even John Stewart went off on how ridiculous the criticisms of the Handshake that Shook the World were... The Daily Show Get More: Daily Show Full Episodes,The Daily Show on Facebook But if you listen all the way to the end, you'll hear John Stewart say that the "selfie" (actually taken by the Danish Prime Minister of herself, President Obama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron) "kind of fucked up." No Jon. What's fucked up is the holier than thou attitude of the pundits (yourself included) [...]

Unfettered Capitalism

That unfettered capitalism that the Pope recently decried was on full display this holiday weekend in all its ugliness. A San Diego man, dressed as Santa, decided to ridicule all the idiots lined up on Thanksgiving night to save a couple of bucks: Of course, it wasn't only the lowly minimum-wage workers who had to leave their family gatherings early to wait on the gluttons, but the police who were called in to work too.  At least one Black Friday death was reported, plus stabbings, tramplings and general fights over stuff.  It's worth a click here to see some of [...]

Happy Thanksgivukkah!

    It's a holiday that none of us will ever see again, as Thanksgiving and Hanukkah won't arrive on the same date again for another 78,000 years or so.  So, let's celebrate! On the show, I talked about a few things for which I am very thankful. As I adopted my daughter Alison 14 years ago this month, and November is National Adoption Month, I once again welcomed my friend Robert Lamarche to the program.  We first met seven years ago when he contacted my show to ask if I'd consider a segment on adoptions... and we've talked every [...]

Prouty, the Pope, and more Poop

Meet Scott Prouty.  We've been waiting a long time to hear from this man!  Scott Prouty came forward last night on The Ed Show as the guy behind the infamous "47%" video. Of course, David Corn and Mother Jones played a big role in getting the video out. Corn explained how it all unfolded. For nearly a fortnight, he and I had been building a long-distance rapport via private tweets, emails, and phone conversations as we discussed how best to make public the secret video he had shot of Mitt Romney talking at a private, $50,000-per-plate fundraiser in Boca Raton, Florida. Now [...]
