Saturday Night Open Thread

Thank you, Comcast! All of a sudden my cable box started showing English captions on Telemundo shows. No more plugging the antenna in every night. And the captions are really good, not like You Tube. I didn't change any settings, all of a sudden a new option appeared besides "on" and "off" where you can choose a secondary language. Maybe it was there all the time, but whatever, I'm so glad. If your box does the same, check out the first week of Senor de los Cielos 3 -- you can watch free on On Demand. It really surpassed my expectations, and they were pretty high. [More...]

Monday night, Unimas will begin re-airing El Cartel -- it is the first really famous Narcodrama, written in prison by Andre Lopez Lopez, and has gotten the best reviews of any of them. Here's his story. Now that I can watch with English captions, I'll finally get to see it.

This is an open thread, all topics welcome.

    During a recent interview with President George W. Bush's former press secretary Dana Perino, who now co-stars on a Fox News show with Eric Bolling, Daily Show host Jon Stewart pointedly derided her co-host as a "dumb guy."

    While Perino took halfhearted issue with that description of Bolling, Stewart stood his ground, and for good reason, in my honest opinion. Take a quick listen to the breathtakingly open bigotry that was on display Friday evening when "the dumb guy," subbing for Bill O'Reilly, got together with The Lord's Own Nitwit, the Rev. Franklin Graham:

    Rev. Graham: "[A]s a Christian, I want to emulate Christ, I want to follow Christ, and I want to do good to all men. Islam, the God of Islam wants you to die for him, but the God that I worship, he died for me. [...] But Islam -- the Muslims want to emulate their prophet Mohammed. Mohammed raped, he murdered, he killed and so we're seeing the followers of Islam emulate the prophet Mohammed, and we've got to take a stand, we've got to know what we're dealing with. But it's not just the Muslims in the Middle East. We have to be careful of the Muslims in this country. We need to stop the immigration, we need immigration reform, but to stop the Muslims coming to this country from countries that have active terrorist cells."

    Oy, oy and oy again, because only one oy clearly isn't enough. To paraphrase the late author / entrepreneur Elbert Hubbard, while genius may have its limitations, these two dipschitts are not thus handicapped.

    Aloha.
