Brad Pitt’s Mother Writes Anti-Gay Marriage Letter

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Rants,

Brad PittBrad Pitt's mother Jane Pitt has "Christian" views on abortion and gay marriage.

The showbiz matriarch - whose son Brad is one of the most vocal supporters of gay rights in Hollywood - has written a letter to her local newspaper the News-Leader in Springfield, Missouri, urging people to vote for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, due to him being a "family man with high morals."

She also hits out at President Barack Obama because he supports the "killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage."

"I am ... a Christian and differ with the Mormon religion. But I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon. Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney's opponent, Barack Hussein Obama - a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright's church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage," she wrote.

How Super Was ‘Super Tuesday’?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Specials, Cable, News,

Hillary ClintonNews networks scattered to bring the most up-to-date and intensive coverage. Promotional departments cranked out somewhat frightening ads making the day look like Armageddon. And they all geared up with a vengeance for this event the media has dubbed . Now that the dust of news competition has settled, it’s possible to get a look at the results of this apparently cataclysmic event.

The truth is, very few lives were changed by the election results. Far more were effected by the massive tornadoes which ripped through Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri, Mississippi and Kentucky (where I personally live). Super Tuesday coverage began to fall by the wayside around two in the morning (EST) as the showed weather maps and gruesome footage of horrible damage.

Presidential Race Changed by Iowa

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Specials, Cable, News,

Barack ObamaEven those who aren’t politically savvy know about the Iowa Caucuses - perhaps that’s why they were covered on three different networks Thursday evening. The results are in, the votes tallied, and the outcome of the Caucus is pretty surprising. On the strength of these results alone, two Presidential hopefuls have already completely dropped out the race. That’s the strength of popular opinion…at least, in Iowa.

Republican was declared winner for his party early in the evening, with and falling well behind Huckabee in votes. Early Republican frontrunner had a dismal showing with only 14%, while former mayor barely even registered on the poll.

On the Democratic side, leapt to an early lead and held on, becoming the party winner before the night was all said and done. Surprisingly, it was not but who fell into second place. brought up the rear with a low 4%, while Democratic hopefuls and - who have both since dropped out of the race - received 1% and 0% of the vote respectively.

John Edwards Dialogue Set for MySpace and MTV

John Edwards Dialogue

MySpace and MTV have teamed together to host a one-on-one Presidential Dialogue for John Edwards, which we means that various politicos and viewers get to grill him live. It will be on this Thursday, Sept. 27 at noon, like we are going to give up our all-important lunch hour. You can ask questions via both venues and a Flektor poll is supposed to track results, although we are not quite sure why that is necessary. We don’t know if all the candidates have MySpace pages and plans, but we did note while on Edwards’ page there was a clever Google ad for Mitt Romney sandwiched in there.
