Clinton and Obama Golfing

Herman Cain will never occupy the Oval Office, but he's become a popular figure on the campaign trail this fall, and as an African-American, his rebuttal to Morgan Freeman's controversial comments about the Tea Party carries some weight.

If you missed it, Freeman called the Tea Party racist on Piers Morgan Tonight Friday, criticizing the conservative movement's disdain for President Obama.

GOP presidential candidate Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, disagrees.

Appearing on Fox's Your World with Neil Cavuto, the Hermanator said:

"Well, first of all, I doubt if Morgan Freeman, with all due respect, who's a great actor, has ever been to a Tea Party. Most of the people that are criticizing the Tea Parties... about having a racist element, they have never been to a Tea Party."

"I just think that it's sad that they're so short-sighted understanding what the Tea Party citizen movement is all about. I'm not offended by it, because it doesn't slow down my momentum. It doesn't slow down the reaction I get from people."

Cain, whose campaign is riding high after winning the Florida straw poll, added, "Name-calling is something that's going to continue, because they don't know how to stop this movement. And this movement is making a big difference in politics."

"A lot of the traditional Democrats are moving to the center or moving over to vote for conservatives. They're taking another look at a Herman Cain."

What do you think? Is the Tea Party racist?

To say Morgan Freeman is not a fan of the Tea Party movement would be putting it mildly. In an interview on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, Freeman labels Tea Partiers radicals whose sole aim is to oust President Obama from office.

"But it's not a racist thing?" asked Morgan.

"It is a racist thing," replied Freeman.

"Their publicly stated policy is to do whatever it takes to see that Obama serves only one term. What underlies that? Screw the country," Freeman lamented.

"We're going to do whatever we can to get this black man out of here."

"We're supposed to be better than that. It shows the weak, dark underside of America," said the Oscar-winner of those "controlling the Republican Party."

There are plenty of racists out there, but the whole Tea Party? We'd be more concerned that these people think hurricanes result from God judging gays.

What do you think? Is the Tea Party racist?

Pam Olsen, the newly-named co-chair of Rick Perry's presidential campaign in the state of Florida, really doesn't like gay people. Nor does God, she says.

In fact, apparently all the fires, hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes these days are actually God's way of punishing us for being tolerant toward gays.

Who knew, right??! You learn something every day.

You gotta love this stuff ... and really hope Larry Flynt gets his wish and unearths a Rick Perry sex scandal. We'd love to hear Pam Olsen's take on that.

Does she really believe this? Olsen seems to explicitly link natural disasters on God's judgment and gays. This puts the Perry campaign at odds with:

  • GOP rival Michele Bachmann, who believes that Hurricane Irene was God's way of saying that the government needs to rein in spending.
  • Any semblance of sanity or compassion.

Why was former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson even at the Republican presidential debate last night? Will he earn more than one percent of the vote? Unclear.

Did he deliver the best line of the night? Unquestionably!

Zinging President Barack Obama for his economic stimulus efforts, the libertarian quipped that "my next-door neighbor's two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration." That's pretty good. Watch:

The joke killed with the audience. But did he rip it off?

Earlier this week, none other than Rush Limbaugh delivered a similar joke on air, discussing his new dog: "The new puppy, honest to God ... more shovel-ready work for me this week than Obama has created in two and a half years."

So what does Rush think of the similarity? "I guess I've become show prep for the GOP debates now, too," Limbaugh joked to the Huffington Post.

If you've had a sexual encounter - gay or straight - with Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Larry Flynt wants to hear from you. And will pay BIG BUCKS for proof.

Hustler's publisher is targeting the Republican Presidential candidate, offering $1 million for anyone who can show Perry having an illicit sexual liaison.

The ad, which Flynt will take out in various newspapers, asks bluntly, "Have you had a gay or straight sexual encounter with Governor Rick Perry?"

Hey, you might as well not beat around the bush in this quest.

Rick Perry wants to be president. Larry Flynt wants to derail him/make money.

A purveyor of all things smut, Flynt is clearly not a fan of Perry, who opposes gay marriage and is regarded as devoutly conservative on social issues.

Then again, he's made similar offers in the past to people coming forward with dirt on Bill Clinton and/or members of Congress in either political party.

No word if there's a similar bounty on Perry's rival Rick Santorum, or whether it would involve a bonus if it involves "santorum" as Google defines it.

Seriously, Google Rick Santorum. Larry Flynt would be proud.

The execution of Troy Davis last night drew widespread criticism, including from 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin, who did not hold back on Twitter today.

Never one to shy away from controversial subjects, Baldwin made sure that his disgust over the Georgia man's death was heard loud and clear.

Of Davis' execution, which occurred at 11.08 p.m. by lethal injection, despite a plea for clemency, "The anti-justice haters won tonight," Baldwin said.

Alec Baldwin Tweet

The 53-year-old actor went on to make a stream of politically passionate comments that attracted both praise and criticism from Twitter followers.

He referred to the family of police officer Mark McPhail, who was gunned down rushing to the aid of a homeless man in a Burger King parking lot in 1989.

"Wonder if the MacPhail family will seek death penalty for US leaders who killed thousands of US soldiers and countless innocent Iraqis," tweeted Alec.

He then went on a Twitter rampage about his disgust in the execution of 42-year-old Davis, which was based on questionable eyewitness evidence.

Republican Presidential "candidate" (term used very, very loosely) Rick Santorum is at odds with not only his fellow White House hopefuls, but Google.

Specifically, Rick is far from pleased about the results displayed when people type his name into the search engine. All 12 of those people? So misled!

Hilariously, the first result on a search for his name is not his website, but a fake definition of "santorum," a graphically described sexual act/byproduct.

Go Google Rick Santorum right now if you want the definition. We're not going to spell it out here, but let's just say it stinks worse than his poll numbers.

Ironically, more people are undoubtedly doing this now than because they cared about Santorum initially. Maybe you should be thanking them, R-Dog.

The former U.S. Senator attacked Google, going so far as to suggest that if he were a Democrat, the company would rectify this atrocity immediately.

Santorum told Politico in an interview this week that “I suspect if something was up there like that about, say, Joe Biden, they would get rid of it."

Don't Ask, Don't Tell - the 1993 law that allowed gays to serve in the military only if they kept their sexual orientation private - is now a part of history.

Repeal of the ban took effect Tuesday at 12:01 a.m. EDT.

Some in Congress still oppose the change, but top Pentagon leaders certified that it will not undermine the military's ability to recruit or to fight wars.

Repealing DADT was one of President Barack Obama's priorities, and unlike so many other things on his agenda, he pulled it off earlier this year.

President Bill Clinton tried to repeal the military's full-scale ban on gays in 1993, but ran into strenuous objections of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Don't Ask, Don't Tell was enacted as a compromise. Nearly two decades later, Obama had the Joint Chiefs on his side and the policy is out.
