THIS REVIEW IS BROUGHT TO YOU AS A PUBLIC SERVICE BY THE FORMER PISTOL PETE, NOW JUST PETE, AND THE LETTER ‘L’ AND THE NUMBERS 3 AND 8.
Actually, that song is the theme song for an overnight sports talk show on the weekends. It could also apply to the annual Hollywood elitist orgy of backslapping, self-congratulating, republican bashing, mutual masturbation party. I can’t remember ever wasting my time to watch these vacuous juveniles who think being paid obscene sums of money to say lines someone else has written makes them our moral and intellectual superiors.
As viscerally as they despised George W. Bush, they thought he was an uneducated, warmongering moron, and relished the fact that he never hit back. Trump is different because he used to be one of them… or so they thought. Granted, he has an immense ego. If I had billions of dollars I might too. But they hate him now because he does not engage in groupthink along with them. Keep in mind a large percentage of these Hollywood types never finished high school, because they were chasing their dream of stardom and riches.
Let me state that I think Stephen Colbert is a nasty little bedwetting punk who was probably bullied in school for being a sneaky little tattletale jackass. Then he has the good fortune to get hooked up with a popular TV show and now he can behave like the obnoxious boor that he really is. He promised beforehand to be a dick last night and he delivered.

Politics center stage as ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ sweeps Emmys
NBC’s long-running comedy sketch show “Saturday Night Live” went into Emmys week with 22 nominations — the joint-highest total alongside “Westworld” — after a year of mercilessly spoofing the new commander-in-chief.
Its haul of five Creative Arts statuettes included outstanding guest actress in a comedy series for Melissa McCarthy, whose “Unhinged Spicey” take on Sean Spicer came to embody early criticism of the administration.
Alec Baldwin took home best supporting actor in a comedy for his Trump impersonation.
“I suppose I should say at long last, Mr President, here is your Emmy,” he joked, in a dig at Trump’s oft-stated annoyance at never having won a statuette for NBC reality show “The Apprentice” or its celebrity spin-off.

Spicer’s jokes, mocking his own claims about Trump’s inaugural crowd size, stirred many angry reactions on Twitter within moments of him leaving the stage.
