‘Queer Eye’ star says not all Republicans are racist…and now people are upset?

I gotta admit that I’ve never watched “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” or even heard of Johnathan Van Ness before, but apparently he’s a big deal and that show is fairly popular. Regardless, Van Ness is now under fire for trying to bring a little bit of reason to our political climate.

Take a look at Van Ness’ tweets that have people all bent out of shape.

I know, I know how horrible! For someone to not actually generalize an entire group of people is an absolute tragedy! This kind of thinking will not be tolerated especially by the tolerant left.

Take a look at some of the well-thought out and rational responses to Van Ness’ triggering tweets.

Be warned: the stupidity is strong with these.

Tim Allen hints at ‘Last Man Standing’ return

Tim Allen and his popular sitcom is nearing a return to television, according to Page Six. This would be a huge win for conservatives and fans of Allen’s humor and everyman persona.

The show was unexpectedly cancelled in 2016, despite decent ratings. Needless to say, at the time when the show was canned, conservatives cried liberal censorship.

For those unfamiliar with ‘Last Man Standing,’ Allen plays Mike Baxter, a wealthy owner of a chain of outdoor sporting goods stores, who routinely mocks liberal sacred cows of the day.  This despite him living in a house full of women, most of whom regularly espouse liberal views.

In addition, the family as a whole regularly attends church and they truly seem to love one another.

Allen hinted at the show’s return on Twitter:

In stead of ABC, the show would be on FOX for its 7th season and is slated for their 2018-2019 season.

This comes on the massive ratings success that has been Roseanne, another show that routinely mocks all things liberal.

West Virginia GOP Senate candidate’s ad…is bad, really bad

It’s inevitable that campaign season will produce a number of bad campaign ads. Candidates have limited money, time and manpower. Sometimes you just have to go with what you have and just hope that the candidate’s message is strong enough for the voter’s to overlook the less than stellar ad.

The contentious Indiana GOP Senate primary campaign has produced a number of them, most of them negative and most of them courtesy of the Todd Rokita campaign.

For instance:

However, as bad as those ads may appear, they are nothing, absolutely nothing in comparison to this one produced by a West Virginia GOP Senate candidate.

Don Blankenship is looking to replace Democrat Joe Manchin, but this ad will probably not put him over the top.

The music, the monotone delivery, and the lack of any kind of personality aren’t going to help. But the icing on the cake has to be his creative nickname for Mitch McConnell.

Surprise, surprise: Maher defends Ingraham

Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. For instance, liberal Bill Maher defending conservative Laura Ingraham.

Over the weekend, the ‘Real Time’ host came out against the proposed advertising boycott Laura Ingraham’s television program.

Some quick background on the whole issue: Ingraham tweeted out a message essentially mocking Hogg after he said was rejected by several colleges. Hogg retaliated by calling for advertisers to drop the Ingraham show.

Of course, several companies capitulated to the 17-year-old. But Fox News put out a message saying they were staying with Ingraham despite the hullabaloo. 

Anyway, Maher essentially said Friday night that despite what Ingraham said, she still has the right to do so, with the First Amendment and all. He goes on to make the same argument that many have been making since the whole thing started. David Hogg has the right to be heard just as much as Laura Ingraham does just as much as Joe Scarborough or Rachel Maddow does.

Almost on cue and as expected the other three members of Maher’s panel vehemently disagree with the host.

Gotta wonder how they would feel if someone tried to silence them?

‘The Office’ reboot talks pick up steam

Sometimes you just have to take a break from politics, ignore Donald Trump’s typo-ridden tweets, shut off CNN or MSNBC (That last one is a joke, calm down) and indulge in mindless entertainment. Right? Sure, we all do.

Anyway, ‘The Office,” the U.S. version, is without any shadow of a doubt, one of the best series in television history. If you don’t believe me, if you are unsure or disagree with my previous statement in the slightest, I will fight you! (Not really, but you get the idea.)  Seriously, Steve Carell not winning an Emmy for his work as the iconic Michael Gary Scott is one of the biggest crimes of all time.

However, as much as I love watching Jim play hilarious pranks on the overly authoritative Dwight, Pam roll her eyes at the camera or Creed doing whatever it is exactly Creed does, it must stay in the past.

Recently, John Krasinksi (Jim) said he would love to come back and play the sardonic Jim again.

Krasinski’s willingness to revive his career-making character comes after Jenna Fischer (Pam) saying she was game as well. But, Pam and Jim, Dwight, Andy, Angela and Creed, you guys need to stay in the past or at least on Netflix.

The last two seasons – without Michael Scott – were not good. And it’s already been said that Carell wouldn’t be apart of any series reboot.

So knowing all of this, why would they bring it back? Yes, I understand Roseanne has been a massive hit and Will and Grace has been bringing in the ratings, but just leave The Office alone. The characters were given somewhat decent conclusions during the series finale.

The Office is a terrific, witty, hilarious show that only gets better with multiple viewings, but don’t bring it back, don’t ruin it. PLEASE!
