HOLLYSMUG: Seth Rogen, actress sneer at science-hating American rubes

http://twitter.com/#!/dcaldwe2/status/445538373789159425 Oh, hell no. This aggression shall not stand. So, this happened when social media blogger, author and screenwriter Kelly Oxford took to Twitter to sneer while watching “Cosmos.” http://twitter.com/#!/kellyoxford/status/445418176231116800 Huh. It’s weird how those silly science-hating rubes are somehow forcing her to remain here. What power they have! Hey, Ms. Oxford, if you are worried about science-denying, have a chat with Nancy Pelosi’s anti-science daughter. Oxford continued to look down her snooty nose. She, and her children, are far too smart for such things, you see. […]

‘Unintentional satire’: Michael McKean takes a shot at Sarah Palin

http://twitter.com/#!/MJMcKean/status/411309489552244736 What has actor Michael McKean invoking the Unintentional Satire Department? The link leads to a — gasp! — gold Sarah Palin medallion from Alaska Mint. What’s not satirical: a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the medallion will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, a service organization for wounded veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. Not only that: the description of the medallion is decidedly nonpartisan: “This 1 oz. gold medallion honors Alaska’s Sarah Palin. As Alaska’s first woman Governor, she had a reputation of being against ‘business as […]

Olympian McKayla Maroney has the best advice yet for the creeps who are hacking celebrity phones

http://twitter.com/#!/McKaylaMaroney/status/506356524915388416 The hackers should get Jesus — and a lawyer. Maroney says she was underage in the “fake” photos: http://twitter.com/#!/TMZ/status/507060210893328384 If the photos are fakes — i.e., her face Photoshopped onto a another woman’s naked body — are they illegal?  The Supreme Court ruled in 2002 that “virtual” images like that are not illegal.
