Lena Dunham on Woody Allen: Dunham said she's "nauseated" and "disgusted" by the crimes that Woody Allen is accused of committing. But she makes a great point here:
I think that you can decide that you don’t want to support the work of somebody who has molested a child. That’s a completely appropriate choice. But going through it and saying, look, he’s told us in 57 ways that he rapes kids — that’s not the thing. The thing is to look at the actual evidence that exists in the world, which I think strongly suggests that Woody Allen is in the wrong. But for me the point is not to go through his one-act plays looking for references to child molestation. Because I’m not comfortable living in a world where art is part of how we convict people of crimes.

At Long Last, Have You No Shame, Ms. Palin? Christian Nightmares posted this trailer for Sarah Palin's new show, and it's even sadder than I thought it was going to be. Palin opens the trailer by awkwardly saying "Get red, wild, and blue, America," and she is identified as "the First Lady of the Outdoors," which I guess means Palin must've gay-married Mother Nature? Congratulations to her! Unfortunately, her new show looks like a hot, steaming pile of shit.
