If you had to guess what narcissistic Hollywood leftists would say in the immediate aftermath of Osama Bin Laden's death, what would it be? Would you think about the "mother lode" of intelligence that was to be had from taking down the world's most wanted terrorist? Would you think of all the terrorist plots that have been thwarted since 9/11? Would you think of the national catharsis that would occur for every single person who remembers exactly where they were and what they were doing when the Towers were hit?

Of course not. Because the first thing that happens when you think the world revolves you is to start applying similar logic elsewhere. Exhibit A: Michael Moore (or was that Exhibit XXL?) Regardless, in less time than it takes a man to scarf down a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Michael Moore was demonstrating just how clueless the hard left is when it comes to world-wide terrorism:



It wasn't long ago that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was concerned about how he would be portrayed in The Social Network - and with good reason. As John Nolte observed, "there's no doubt that this look at how the creation of a cultural phenomenon left behind a wake of betrayals, broken relationships and billion-dollar lawsuits is an absolutely fascinating one."



At one time kids had posters of their favorite artists on bedroom walls. Today’s kids will have pictures of their favorite artist on their condom wrappers.  Multi-platinum selling Ke$ha will have her image imprinted on 10,000 “special edition” condoms.



Justin Bieber, who regularly tells anyone who will listen to never say never, has done just that. In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, the singer asserted that he never plans on becoming an American citizen. The reason? Apparently the U.S. health care system, which leads the world in the creation of cutting edge medical technology and the invention of life-saving drugs, simply doesn't measure up to "free" (but compassionate) Canadian mediocrity.

The unseen costs of liberal policies never enters the young singer's mind. It's not because his famous hair is impenetrable to basic economics, either. It's because he's lucky enough to not have required highly specialized medical care on a moment’s notice. He's fortunate to be a millionaire who can charter a private jet to whatever world-renowned U.S. hospital has a crack staff of seasoned surgeons ready to put him back together, while the average Canadian gets to pray they're treated before bureaucratic red tape literally leads to their demise.



Esquire Magazine wants to know: Why Does Roger Ailes Hate America? Unfortunately for them, what readers glean from the piece tells them much more about the inner workings of the liberal mind than Roger Ailes. A man with a knack for finding talent and cultivating its creative impulses is scorned instead of celebrated. A man who can accurately identify glaring voids in the marketplace and fill them with quality products is ridiculed.



Anyone who’s seen Bravo’s "Top Chef" knows Tom Colicchio.  He’s a man who knows how to cook and a man who knows good food.  And, while his taste buds work magnificently, he’s apparently politically tone deaf.  In the wake of Representative Giffords' shooting last weekend he served up a dish that turned the majority of the country’s stomach. He wrote on Twitter:



Has outspoken liberal Ashton Kutcher been secretly reading The Heritage Foundation's research on the importance of missile defense and the fallout from an EMP attack? Has some of the self-reliance and rugged individualism of Sarah Palin crept into his brain? The guy who's essentially famous for being famous is suddenly not so sure the federal government can protect him in the lurch:

The movie star and producer...fears a major U.S. energy meltdown is nigh and he's trying to get super fit so he can deal with the chaos that will follow a blackout or worse.



Anyone who’s occasionally watched Discovery Channel over the better half of the decade is familiar with Mythbusters.  The President of the United States includes himself on the large list of Americans who appreciate the efforts of Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman to explode myths—literally—while making science fun.



In this week’s Sports Illustrated, Bill Clinton, Honorary Chairman of the USA Bid Committee to bring the World Cup back to America in 2022, finally broke his silence.  Avid American soccer fans – all twelve of them – demanded to know what the United States was doing to bring the famous tournament stateside.  Seasoned followers of Bill Clinton won’t be surprised to find



Barack Obama is quickly becoming the Paul Reiser of presidents.  To a reader of the Huffington Post (where Reiser contributes) that might sound like a good thing.  However, to those who are unfamiliar with the liberalism of Reiser and only know him by the 90's sitcom Mad About You—it’s not.



Not long ago James Carville released 40 More Years: How Democrats will Rule the Next Generation.   Even in the wake of the 2008 election cycle it was a bold prediction, one that got him promotional spots on Good Morning America:
