Live Blog: 2013 Emmys

Popcorn? Check? Tuned to CBS? Yes! Perrier? Check? Chocolate? Of course! Here we go! Neil Patrick Harris is hosting which will make the Emmys fun, no one specific show dominates the nominees which makes things a little more interesting. What shows do you watch? I’m a Big Bang Theory girl myself, and I note that the other shows I watch religiously (Hell on Wheels, The Americans) didn’t make the noms. Thrilled about Behind the Candelabra, though I think Rob Lowe should have gotten a nomination for his role as the Bev Hills plastic surgeon. He was sooooo creepy…okay, here’s the monologue!

Nancy Pelosi: Stephen Colbert MUST Be Stopped!

Since the day Stephen Colbert started taking money from special interests to fund his SuperPAC Nancy Pelosi has dedicated herself to stopping the pundit who she claims

doesn’t even like kittens.

In this video, Pelosi says that the first step to ending Colbert’s heinous SuperPAC plot is

passing the Disclose Act

The Disclose Act, aka HR 4010, was introduced Thursday afternoon by Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and would amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to provide for additional disclosure requirements for corporations, labor organizations, and other entities, and for other purposes.

Anderson Cooper vs Colbert in Fall Line Up, Spitzer Cancelled.

CNN has cancelled Eliot Spitzer’s show, In the Arena, moving Anderson Cooper’s AC360 into the 8pm spot, with replays at 10pm.

Cooper will now go head to head against Bill O’Reilly’s The O’Reilly Factor on Fox,  Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC and The Colbert Report on Comedy Central.

Colbert and Cooper launched a faux-feud in May, which lasted only a couple episodes.

Stephen Colbert to Testify Before Congress, Fox News Furious

Arch pundit Stephen Colbert is scheduled to appear before the House Judiciary Committee’s immigration subcommittee on Friday September24 to discuss his experience picking fruit as part of the United Farm Workers Take Our Jobs program,  which invites U.S. citizens and legal residents to replace tens of thousands of immigrant field laborers, most of whom are undocumented.

Appearing on the Colbert Report in July, United Farm Workers President Arturo S. Rodriguez said that only three people have participated. Colbert’s participation increased the number to of participants to four.

The Daily Caller quotes a Republican source who claims the pseudo-conservative blowhard will appear in character before the committee. Fox and Friends Gretchen Carlson is really upset. She railed that it was a waste of tax payer dollars and an outrage that Colbert would appear in character under oath.

Batting her tarantula-like black lashes, the former Miss America and Stanford graduate said that there are better qualified people to testify and if Colbert insults Congress and wastes taxpayers money, his appearance will be discussed all weekend on Fox.
