A large portion of the conversation on Twitter today concerns Kathy Griffin. She posed with a (fake, obviously) severed Donald Trump head, which was drenched in blood. The picture is so graphic that I’m not sure I can post it here due to Adsense regulations. Of course, the bigger sites can get away with such things, but I have to be a bit more careful. The picture is everywhere, though, so I don’t think it’s really needed.

The more interesting part about all this is the fact that the Secret Service has responded to the deluge of complaints lodged with them on Twitter about the photo.

I’m not even saying she should be charged over this stunt. I tend to lean towards no, in fact. But, and this is a big but, if the shoe was on the conservative foot, there would be a ton of calls from the left for the person in question to be sent to jail. Imagine if Milo Yiannopoulos, or some other conservative provocateur, had posed with an Obama head? You know the deal. There would be pandemonium on places like The Huffington Post and Raw Story. The mainstream media would be running with it.

Since it’s some leftist “comedian,” it’s all good. Let that glaring double standard sink in.


REMINDER: Remember what happened to Hank Williams Jr

Hours after country singer Hank Williams Jr. went on a morning talk show and likened President Obama to Adolf Hitler, ESPN announced it had dropped the singer as the opening of this week’s “Monday Night Football.” [Editor’s Note: This ended up being permanent.]

“While Hank Williams Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize he is closely linked to our company through the opening to ‘Monday Night Football,’” the Disney-owned sports cable network said Monday afternoon in its statement.

“We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”
For more than two decades, Williams has been the voice of the “Monday Night Football” theme song.

Williams on Monday morning had compared the recent “golf summit” between Obama and House Speaker John Boehner as “one of the biggest political mistakes ever.”

“It would be like Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu,” Williams said on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.”

Also, Kathy didn’t used to have any problems with Donald Trump. It’s almost like she’s a phony who is only doing this for attention.


UPDATE: Anderson Cooper has come out and denounced Kathy’s actions, if not her person…
