Sometimes liberal bias goes so far it actually becomes absurd, like Roseanne Barr saying that she would bring back the guillotine in order to behead any rich people who wanted to keep more than $100 million of their own money. She set the bar (or the guillotine) higher than her $80 million net worth.

This evening, on Ed Schultz's soon-to-be-extinct weeknight MSNBC show, a histrionic Michael Moore accused white gun owners of racism . . . then proceeded to say it was reasonable for them not to be afraid of their white neighbors . . . and admitted he felt more comfortable walking down the streets of Toronto than Detroit.

It’s the international question as the conclave begins: who will be named the next Catholic pope. Among the 115 cardinals, prominent candidates stand out, from Canadian Cardinal Marc Ouellet to Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Turkson. Oh, and then there’s the left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore.

That's it. That should be the bottom line of what we need to start with," he argued. “We are a violent people. We as Americans believe it’s OK to kill people,” he added.
