GOP Strategist Ed Rollins Blasts Sarah Palin For Comparing Herself To Ronald Reagan (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 2nd 2010 6:00PM
Ed Rollins knew Ronald Reagan, having run his 1984 Presidential campaign in which Reagan won 49 states. And Ed Rollins wants Sarah Palin to know she's not anything like Ronald Reagan, who the former Alaska governor often compares herself to.

Appearing on 'John King USA' (weekdays , 7 PM ET on CNN) Rollins discussed an article he wrote recently in which he said to Palin, "I would have hoped among the five colleges you attended that you would have learned a little history. And I can tell you being governor of the most populous state is a lot tougher than being governor of one of the least populous ones."

"Her whole rhetoric now is Ronald Reagan did this, so therefor I can do that," Rollins explained to King, after King had showed his audience quotes from Rollins' article about Palin. "She ain't Ronald Reagan. Reagan was a very significant person by the time he ended up running for president."

It seems safe to assume that Rollins has now joined the rapidly expanding group of republicans who would like to see Palin stay in Alaska. (Or in the cyberworld of Facebook and Twitter.)

'SNL's' Presidential Reunion Video Hits Funny or Die

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 4th 2010 8:45PM
Nearly 30 years of one of American television's most storied and beloved traditions (i.e. portraying our presidents as moronic simpletons whose inability to tie their own shoes could send the country to Defcon 3) came to a glorious fountain of awesomeness at Funnyordie.com.

The website premiered a new public service announcement on federal finance laws directed by Ron Howard in the form of a very funny "Presidential Reunion" sketch that features the likes of Will Ferrell, Darrell Hammond, Dana Carvey, Dan Aykroyd and even Chevy Chase reviving their classic impressions of former presidents including (respectively) George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George Bush Sr., Jimmy Carter and (the most hilarious in my opinion) Gerald Ford who come together to help the beleaguered Barack Obama, played by Fred Armisen. Jim Carrey also stepped in the room to play Ronald Reagan probably because Randy Quaid is nuttier than a Payday bar these days.

I defy you to find a better commercial: Snuggie for Dogs

snuggie for dogsSnuggie. For. Dogs. I really feel like anything I write after that is just superfluous. So, yes, everybody has written about the Snuggie, ha ha ha. America is fat and lazy and will soon be taken over by the far more efficient Chinese.

But these are all known facts. Ever since Ronald Reagan declared ketchup as a vegetable, the cat's kind of been out of the bag on the whole "America is fat" tip. So when I saw the ad for the Snuggie, my reaction was simply, "meh." Actually, that's a lie. My reaction was, "Dude. That's awesome. Blankets 24/7!" But after I sobered up, it went back to, "meh."

ABC News' Sam Donaldson announces his retirement

Sam DonaldsonOne of the most recognizable figures in ABC News is saying goodbye to the daily grind. In his time with the network, Sam Donaldson has done it all, investigative reporter, anchor, host, talking head, and always with a distinctive, pugnacious style. After four decades at the job, ABC's Sam Donaldson is retiring.

He will be missed, especially at the network. Anchorman Charles Gibson acknowledged as much when he told the Washington Post that Donaldson's retirement "really is a loss of the bedrock" for ABC. These days, the big three have struggled to maintain their dominance in the news business with cable outlets offering so much blanket coverage compared to the nets. Sam Donaldson has been synonymous with ABC. He can't help but be missed. To this day, I think Ted Koppell is missed as well.
