Tired Old Queen at the Movies: The Palm Beach Story

Steve Hayes reviews the classic screwball comedy, which your Head Trucker highly recommends:
Claudette Colbert and Joel McCrea have a field day in the zany Preston Sturges comedy PALM BEACH STORY (1942). With able support from such Sturges comic regulars as William Demarest, Jimmy Conlin, and Roscoe Ates, and with brilliant comedic turns by Rudee Vallee and Mary Astor, it’s a happy, slapstick free-for-all, loaded with sophisticated dialogue, unexpected reversals, and sexy innuendos. The perfect way to start the New Year off with a bang!

I'm With Stupid!

No comment.

Update, 4:15 p.m.: Stephen Colbert celebrates the return of "the original material girl." Too funny:

Oh and Palin, addressing an Oklahoma rally in biker-girl chic says Obama is the reason her drunken son punched his girlfriend in the face, kicked her, and threatened to blow his own head off with an AR-15. Because that "weak-kneed Capitulator-in-Chief" "treats illegal immigrants better than returning veterans." Seriously, she said this:

Palin was the "official Brigade Mom" for Track's unit in Iraq when he served there in 2008, under George Bush.

Queers, Fears, and Crocodile Tears

Taking care to speak out of both sides of his mouth at once, His Grace the Most Reverend and Right Honourable The Lord Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, Primate of All England and Metropolitan, has appeared on British television to say "how sorry I am for the hurt and pain, in the past and present, the Church has caused" to gays and lesbians. 

This after chairing a meeting last week of the Primates of the Anglican Communion that effectively suspended The Episcopal Church in the United States of America from the high councils of the Anglican Communion for the next three years.  Full text of the official communiqué is here

Why?  Because the Episcopal Church loves teh gayz so much they even marry them!  Horrors!  What terrible wickedness!  It's just the worst thing in the world!  Isn't it?

Meanwhile, the heads of the backwoods Anglican churches in Africa, South America, and other places are shouting hallelujah at this blow they have given - with Welby's help - to the "evil of homosexuality."  Some of those archbishops have outspokenly pushed for things like the infamous Kill-the-Gays bill in Uganda, and similar measures elsewhere.

All this is the latest chapter in the slow-motion breakup of the Anglican Communion - all on account of the filthy, nasty, perverted, unnatural gays, like you and me - a pity in one sense, but if the Archbishop of Canterbury wants to end up as merely the tool and titular head of a bunch of howling, foaming, murderous homophobes, that's his lookout.

The American church, of course, has been entirely independent of the Church of England since 1776, and will keep right on loving the gays, as newly installed Presiding Bishop Michael Curry says, more charitably than your Head Trucker is able to do:
