Forget About The Movement

  • The Monologue:
    • Senate Republicans voted to deny special medical care to firefighters who responded to 9/11. Who can make a joke about that?
    • The Senate voted against repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," thereby telling homosexuals they should stay in the closet where they belong. It works for half of the religious right, so why not?
    • Where can I buy stock in "The 32-year-old Cliff Lee will sign a seven-year deal, the biggest in baseball history, and get hurt in his second season of the contract?"
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • There may not be a show on TV that is as versatile as Community. They try all different types of themes and formats, including tonight's stop-motion Christmas special, and they nearly always succeed.
    • There were some killer lines on tonight's 30 Rock ("Say what you will, but my son, Spiderman, is doing fine." "Abused women, be quiet! There is a man speaking!"), but the joke that took me by the most surprise was the quick shot of Alan Alda's book that had a cover depicting a family that consisted of Alda, a witch, a women in a burka, and an African-American kid in a wheelchair.
    • Hehe. Yeah, it's coming.
  • Random Video:
    • Maybe we'll wrap this up tomorrow, maybe over the weekend. You're sick of music from 1992? Well, never forget that your anger is a gift.
