The real crime in the Sony “hack” story is the hack itself, but some of the stuff revealed as a result is telling considering it’s coming from Hollywood bigwigs — the same crowd that preaches liberal “values” including racial sensitivity.
Case in point:
Sony Pictures Entertainment executives joked about US President Barack Obama’s race in a series of emails leaked following the recent hack on Sony, according to reports.
Amy Pascal, co-chair of Sony Pictures Entertainment, reportedly asked top producer Scott Rudin what she should ask Mr Obama at a November 2013 fundraising breakfast.
Mr Rudin wrote: “Would he like to finance some movies.” Ms Pascal replied: “I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked Django?” Mr Rudin responded: “12 Years,” and the pair named other films starring black actors, according to a report on BuzzFeed.
The outrage brigade probably won’t be demanding any resignations for an obvious reason:
Pascal is a major Democratic donor; she gave $5,000 to Obama’s re-election campaign and cut a $30,800 check to the Democratic National Committee, according to OpenSecrets.
The Dems will be so pissed off at Pascal’s emails that they’ll refuse to take her money and issue a refund immediately (pause for laughter).
Two men are shown in the background of the photo below — one is a member of a famous comedy troupe that kept the world laughing at them for years, and the other is John Cleese:
Hey, maybe a guy from ‘N Sync can un-wreck the train!
This is really getting beyond embarrassing. And I can’t help but wonder what the U.S. Marine in the picture is thinking.
Or maybe he’s just there to sing “Bye Bye Bye” to the U.S. economy.
Update: Bass deleted the above tweet because if pointed readers to HealthCare.ORG instead of dot-GOV. Perfect metaphor for the entire law.
Second try is a charm:
Hilarious how he lumps Obamacare in as one of the “charities” he works with. Yeah, ALL charities have federally mandated participation or you face a financial penalty.
This probably happens a lot more than ever gets reported:
All the same, two Oscar voters privately admitted that they didn’t see “12 Years a Slave,” thinking it would be upsetting. But they said they voted for it anyway because, given the film’s social relevance, they felt obligated to do so.
Hopping on a pop culture bandwagon just because everybody else was doing so in spite of personally knowing nothing about it? Why does that sound so familiar?
Thursday night, Michelle Obama appeared on The Tonight Show (now hosted by Jimmy Fallon) and participated in a sketch called “Ew!”
This is a pretty good imitation of a kid’s reaction to a school lunch made under FLOTUS’ dietary guidelines:
I’m not a huge fan of Vine videos on a blog, but that told a quick and effective story about what’s left of America after the libs have helped “fix” things.
Obama in 2008:
Fast forward to 2014. During yesterday’s interview with Bill O’Reilly, Obama backed away from that statement:
O’Reilly read Obama a question from a viewer who asked, “Mr. President, why do you feel it is necessary to fundamentally transform the nation that has afforded you so much opportunity and success?”
“I don’t think we need to fundamentally transform the nation,” said Obama.
“But those are your words,” explained O’Reilly.
“I think what we have to do is make sure that here in America, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” said Obama.
Shorter version: “If you like your fundamental transformation of America, you can keep your fundamental transformation of America.”
And I do think he’s followed through on that promise to fundamentally transformed America — for the much much worse.
Do you find it as funny as I do that A&E could lose the most lucrative, highest rated non-fiction cable series of all time just because they were in a rush to appease people who don’t even watch the show?
Also, any “boycott” of the show’s advertisers isn’t going to work because companies like Under Armour know their customer base, and that base doesn’t look like this.
In spite of their “offense” at Phil Robertson’s comments, A&E continues to milk every last dollar out of the show. Get it while you can, A&E, because that money might go elsewhere soon.
A&E may have made the dumbest broadcast media business decision since somebody gave Magic Johnson a talk show.
This was really well played:
Naturally the libs loved it — just loved it! The Left is furious because they believe awards shows are **NO PLACE FOR POLITICS.
**Unless it’s something that mocks, belittles or insults the Right.
It’s kind of funny and it has nothing to do with Syria or President Rambo McPeaceprize, so it’s a good way to kick off another week:
More than likely Kirk was afraid he was going to have to see another Tribble.

I couldn’t help but ask that question to nobody in particular last night. It occurred to me was after Kanye West went on an N-word and F-word rant that made the MTV bleep guy collapse from exhaustion.
Before that there was Miley Cyrus, who pleasured herself with a foam finger while the 20-year-old singer mock doggie-styled with 36-year-old Robin Thicke:
At some point later on that’s when it occurred to me that to a great degree, this same bunch is offended by conservatives. I guess it’s a compliment, really. Not that I’m stuffy or anything, but it’s just funny that the left pushes the meme that conservatives hate women and then looks the other way while young girls shriek approval as Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke set the feminist movement back 30 years.
Lady Gaga summed up the evening best when she kicked off the show. I’ll never look into my toilet again without seeing this face staring back:
