” The First Secretary of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia described the reforms which resulted in the Prague Spring as “socialism with a human face.” The New York Times calls Madam Secretary, CBS’s extremely expensive prime time contribution to the Hillary campaign, “Hillary with a human face.”
A network series can cost between $3 and $4 million an episode. Assuming that Madam Secretary runs even one season, instead of being canceled ignominiously like Commander in Chief, the 2005 attempt at giving Hillary a human face, it will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million.
That’s double the $46 million that Hillary’s campaign spent on TV ads against Obama and it gives the Hillary 2016 campaign over 20 hours of prime time network unpaid ad space. If the series lasts long enough to run through the whole campaign that will double to $200 million. But the Hillary 2016 campaign is expected to cost around $2 billion. CBS’s $100 million donation is only a drop in a big bucket.
Hillary won’t be able to get anyone to play Hillary Clinton once she actually runs for office. Lori McCreary, the executive producer of Madam Secretary, said that she was inspired to create the $100 million Hillary infomercial by watching the Benghazi hearings. Her obvious unspoken thought was that the scene of Hillary doing her best Khrushchev imitation while self-righteously covering up the brutal murder of four Americans would have gone much better if someone else had been playing Hillary.”

” The lawyer suing X-Men director Bryan Singer and other Hollywood power players for sexual assault says he has heard from “dozens and dozens and dozens of victims” alleging sexual assault and abuse by other “big names” in the movie industry.
“ They are ready to come forward,” said the controversial Florida-based attorney Jeff Herman. “It cuts across all of Hollywood: studios, agents, directors, producers, and actors.”
Herman is representing Michael Egan, 31, in the highly publicized suits alleging sexual assault against Singer, Broadway producer Gary Goddard, former Disney executive David Neuman, and producer Garth Ancier.
These new allegations are against an entirely different group of entertainment industry figures, Herman told The Daily Beast. “I know of [a] Hollywood sex ring, completely unrelated to these [Singer and the other three defendants’] cases,” Herman said.
“ We are finishing investigations, and will be filing suits soon. It will involve big names. It involves a different part of Hollywood: agents of kids, that sort of thing. There’s really vile stuff going on in the industry. The scope is big, I’m hearing from a lot of people. It fits the pattern of children being sexually exploited.” “
This should be interesting coming from the celebrity idiots that preach to us peons on a daily basis . We can hardly wait for the floodgates to open and expose the hypocrisy and moral decadence of the Hollyweird crowd . Continue reading at the Daily Beast
Rob Lowe had some unusual words , from a Hollywood dweller anyway , in support of individual responsibility and “broken government” when he appeared on Meet The Press with David Gregory . Give a listen . It doesn’t amount to a sea change from the usual Leftists in Hollywood but it is a small crack in the dike and very much welcome .
The concept of “person responsibility” , remember that ?
” If you question Vince Vaughn about his political views, he’ll tell you he’s a proud conservative – and he doesn’t care what the liberals in Hollywood think.
In a telephone interview with Adam Carolla, Hollywood A-list actor Vince Vaughn made a bold statement about his conservative values. When Carolla directly asked him, “Do you count yourself a conservative?” Vaughn didn’t hesitate, he quickly responded, “I do, yeah…I mean I’m very supportive of Ron Paul, but I’ve always been more conservative than not.”
“I really like Ron Paul…I think that when you get older, you just get less trust in the government running anything. And you start to realize…when you go back and start to look at the Constitution and the principles of liberty, the real purpose of government is to protect the individual’s right to, you know, sort of think and pursue what they have interest in,” Vaughn replied.”
With idiots like Tom Cruise getting all the press and money and dominating the entertainment industry , it is easy to forget about an actor who has a head on his shoulders . Thanks , Vince Vaughn for providing the lone voice from the wilderness .

” Comedian Phyllis Diller, known for her self-deprecating humor, died “peacefully in her sleep” at her Los Angeles home Monday morning, her manager told CNN. Diller was 95.
Her son, Perry, “found her with a smile on her face,” manager Milt Suchin said.
Diller’s career as a stand-up comic, which she started at age 37, skyrocketed in the 1960s, partly because of her many appearances with Bob Hope on his television specials, USO tours and three movies.
She became a pop culture icon for her disparaging jokes about her looks, her cooking and her fictitious husband “Fang.” She wore a blonde fright wig, held a long cigarette holder as a prop and laughed with a loud cackle.
One line attributed to her demonstrates how Diller got laughs: “Burt Reynolds once asked me out. I was in his room.”
“She was a true pioneer,” said talent agent Fred Wostbrock. “She was the first lady of stand-up comedy. She paved the way for everybody. She paved the way for Joan Rivers, Chelsea Handler, Roseanne Barr, Ellen Degeneres, and all the women stand-up comics. She was the first and the best.” “
We will have more on Phyllis and her amazing career in an upcoming tribute . Stay tuned … She will be missed .
