Tony Bennett: Wonderful Artist, Political Lunatic

Feb 7, 2013 6:13 AM PT

86 year-old Tony Bennett is in the news again, this time for uttering yet-another bit of left-wing lunacy. Yesterday, in a press conference loaded with anti-Second Amendment celebrities wearing their prescription-less "smart" glasses, Bennett claimed that gun ownership would turn America into Nazi Germany. Even though, you know, one of Hitler's early chess moves towards the "Final Solution" was to confiscate guns from Jews.

Back in 2011, although he later apologized, and in the heart of our mourning the ten-year anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Bennett blamed America for 9/11.

Pro-Gun Fruit Salad

In response to Bruno stands up for the Second Amendment: Is it just me or are more and more entertainers and Hollywood Cool Kids referencing the Constitution and guns as a defense against tyranny when speaking up for the right to bear arms? 

We all remember Ice Tea who said "it's part of our Constitution...the right to bear is [there] because that's the last form of defense against tyranny, not to hunt..." And then last month, rapper, Big Boi told the Huffington Post, "I stand on the Second Amendment, where the right to bear arms is not just for hunting and fishing and things like that, but it's the right of the American people to, you know, have a means of defense against a tyrannical government."

Bruno stands up for the Second Amendment

Feb 6, 2013 2:28 PM PT

It turns out that Bruce Willis is a big Second Amendment supporter.  "I think that you can't start to pick apart anything out of the Bill of Rights without thinking that it's all going to become undone," he told the Associated Press.  "If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn't they take all your rights away from you?"

Sure, he's got a super-violent new "Die Hard" movie on the way, so he doesn't want to be bad-mouthing guns, right?  But that didn't stop Sylvester Stallone from doing it.  And Willis sounds sincere.  He also made the point that Hollywood's big-budget violent films generally don't glorify "people that have gone berserk or gone nuts," because the audience wouldn't like them.  They want to see the good guys win.

Our Father, who art in the White House

Chris Rock led an unimpressive little celebrity posse to Capitol Hill to "demand a plan to end gun violence" today, and unbosomed himself of this brilliant observation

"I’m just here to support the president of the United States. The president of the United States is, you know, our boss. But he’s also, you know, the president and the first lady are kind of like the mom and the dad of the country. And when your dad says something, you listen. And when you don’t, it usually bites you in the ass later on. So, I’m here to support the president."

The Democratization of Music Videos

Feb 4, 2013 2:19 PM PT

We can all stop making jokes about MTV not playing music videos anymore.

As my colleagues John Nolte and Christian Toto have been pointing out for a long time now, Internet streaming is eroding the corrupt business model of cable subscriptions, slowly but surely, when it comes to teleplay and film distribution. The same has been happening with music videos.

'Godfather III' Gets a Bad Rap

Feb 2, 2013 8:13 AM PT

It was enough of a miracle that "Godfather II," lived up to its predecessor, and I think it's close to a miracle number three is as good as it is. It's most certainly a worthy entry in the saga, but that hasn't stopped many from acting as though it were -- oh, I don't know -- a "Star Wars" prequel?

I will say this: "Godfather III" does not work as a standalone. If you just pop it in, the story and characters are hard to follow. But if you watch them all in succession, the movie not only works, it's seamless.
