Jimmy Kimmel mentions Rob Ford on his ABC late night show at least once a night. Well, the infamous Mayor of Toronto has flown to LA to attend the Oscars and to be on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday. So how far is Kimmel willing to go for his favorite politician? He braved the rain, dressed up as a limo driver and picked Ford up from LAX. How many other late night hosts would do that for their guests? None! And if I were going to be a guest on JKL in the future and I have to fly in to do it, I would insist that Kimmel does the same for me. I mean, they should all get such special treatment. Right?
BTW I hope they show all of this on JKL tomorrow at 11:35p. But then again they say what happens in the back of a limo, stays in the back of a limo. At least that is what my prom date told me…
The Canadian Hockey team was on fire yesterday at the Olympics and to honor that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford ran groin first into a fire hydrant! Thankfully for all of us, National Post‘s Darren Calabrese was their to capture the moment. Sadly though it was only with flash photography and not with a motion camera. So we will all have to use our imaginations to picture what it was like in motion. It’s just as good.
BTW is it just me or is Rob Ford just like a cartoon character? The things he does and how he looks reminds me of the animated shows I grew up with as a kid! He’s just so gosh darn cute.
For some reason Chief Budget Officer Councillor Frank Di Giorgio tickled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and what we got are these amazing photos from Reuters via The Daily Caller. I don’t care why he did it, as long as he did.
BTW I don’t know about you, but I want a Tickle Me Ford doll because it would be pure happiness. Seriously don’t these photos just bring a huge smile to your face.
Bill and Hillary Clinton along with Meryl Streep went to see Holland Taylor star as Ann Richards on Broadway and after the show they all posed together with the inspiring Gabby Giffords for a picture.
Even though I was looking at some political and acting bigs all taking a photo together, the only thing I could notice is how the former President was posing with Oscar winner. I can see that Streep and Hillary are dressed alike and both are blondes, but you would think by now he would know the former Secretary of State anywhere. Right?
Jerry Springer announced that he is running for President of the United States and all I have to say is Jerry, Jerry, Jerry!
Seriously I wish he would run because imagine how much fun it would be. The cabinet members would wear a lot less clothes. Leaders would literally fight it out and the secret service would break it up. Actually he is a really good negotiator, so he probably would bring peace to the world.
Sadly though he wasn’t born in the US, so this a dream that will never come true. Maybe Maury would consider a run for the White House, at least then we would know who everyone’s father is!

Last week during the first Presidential Debate Mitt Romney said that he would stop funding PBS if he was elected even though he is a fan of Big Bird and the late night shows ran with that. SNL, The Tonight Show, Conan and so on all came up with spoof videos, so when I saw Barak Obama’s latest ad I thought it was a joke. I mean it seems more like something that those shows would do rather than what the President’s camp would do. Could be because I watched all of those fake videos before the real one. Doesn’t it almost feel like a joke to you.
And you better watch it while you can because Sesame Street wants to educate them on their stance on politics. Sesame Workshop posted this statement on their site, “Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.” It will be interesting to see if they do because I mean in their defense it was a smart thing to do after Big Bird’s boom after the debate. More people talked about our favorite yellow winged friend instead of the candidates for the next few days.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was on 60 Minutes yesterday and Leslie Stahl asked him he was for gay marriage. The former-Governator told her that he officiated not one but two same-sex marriages when he was in office. Even though he believes marriage is between a man and a woman, he would never enforce his will on people.
So in other words he believes in the sanctity of a marriage ceremony, just not the sanctity of a marriage…
Less than 7 months ago Rep Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head and her chances of survival were looking dim. Well today she proved everyone wrong because she was back in the House, the House of Representatives that is.
If ever a politician in this century was the face of courage, inspiration, bravery and heroism it is her. I am in awe of her and I am happy in a time when politicians seem like the greedy scum of the earth, she is the face that not all of them are.
If I could vote for her as President in 2012 I would. Because is she could survive a bullet in the head, she can survive the Presidency.
I so respect this woman, not only for her fight back from hellish situation, but because she is a politician who sincerely cares about the people who voted for her.
Soon-to-be-departing White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was on The Gayle King Show on OWN live this morning and Oprah’s BFF asked him what he would do if Charlie Sheen was his client? The man who has been doing press for President Barack Obama for over two years told her, “If I was the press secretary to Charlie Sheen, I would resign.” Wow, that says a lot because he was able to work with President of The United States for over two years, but couldn’t do even a day with the troubled Two and a Half Men star!
You can watch The Gayle King Show live on OWN weekdays at 10a.
