    You know, if you simultaneously filmed your Reason podcasts, you could be better than television while doing that, too.

    "Online Video Is Better Than Television"

    How low can the bar be set?

  • Crusty Juggler||

  • Eric Bana||

    What I wanna know is, why hasn't Ludacris been awarded the Oscar he deserves.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Rappers are often ignored. Busta Rhymes was also shamefully ignored for his role in Halloween Resurrection.

  • MarkLastname||

    Because he's black, of course. Typical.

  • Rich||

    Certainly better than ABC television.

  • chemjeff||

    But can I watch Friends reruns online?

    Asking for a friend.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Her fiery response to the latter led to, roughly, one of four standing ovations throughout the evening.

    Why am I always vomiting these days?

  • Brian||

    Maybe her election loss is karma from Billy Bob's rape fun house.

    It's ironic.... dontcha think? Or some shit?

    "'This is how deep the rot goes,' she said of a heckler

    She's always reminding us what she really thinks of freedom of speech. Obviously it's a normal human reaction to dislike being heckled. But it takes an especially horrible kind of person to see the fact that people are allowed to heckle you as evidence of all that is "rotten" with society.

  • Eidde||

    How far is she into her "I'm not bitter, I've gotten over it and forgiven everyone" tour?

  • Brian||

    By the article, she's at the "Matt Lauer had it coming for what he did to me" phase.

    More fun than online video is watching Donald Trump talking just to see if he can ever finish a sentence or a thought like what I was doing even though I was also making some egg salad at the same time which by the way when I opened the egg carton one of the eggs was cracked even though I know it wasn't cracked when I bought them so I guess maybe one of the boys - I love them to death, they're great boys - dropped them or something which wouldn't surprise me because even though they're the greatest kids in the world, just fantastic, they're rather thoughtless and inconsiderate that way like how they won't even lift the toilet seat when they go in the bathroom to pee, which by the way I just re-modeled so it's a tremendously great bathroom now, and then I have to go in there and, this new toilet, have you seen these? comfort height, tall enough for wheel-chair people

  • Jerryskids||

    but I'm not in a wheel-chair person, if that's not politically incorrect to say now, I know we're not supposed to call them cripples and some of them I've heard don't like being called handicapped even though, you know, whatever, but this toilet's a great toilet and it was well worth the money (I won't say how much I paid because it will sound like I'm bragging, but believe me, it was a lot of money, just a fantastically yuge amount but not really for me because I can afford it and it's a good toilet) but after I painted the bathroom even though my wife really didn't like the color but we're over there at the Home Depot discussing paint colors, I think it was the Home Depot, might have been Lowe's, they're both great places, fantastic, I love going over there........................................

    Probably. But it also is harder to access.
