“If you love someone, you forget what they look like.” — Joy Behar reacting to the ad pictured above, which plugs a Web site for married cheaters.
I don’t know, Joy. I appreciate the sentiment, but I think I’d have a hard time forgetting the appearance of this little honey.
I don’t understand how Elisabeth Hasselbeck became a celebrity. I remember her, vaguely, from her tenure on Survivor, but only because she pranced around in a bikini. I guess that she had balls for confronting arch-enemy Bill Maher this week on The View, but she didn’t exactly advance her cause — assuming she has one.
I’m just as pissed as anyone else about the mess at Penn State, but it does make me wonder — whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Has there ever been such a collective rush to judgment?
Possibly worst of all is HLN resident hothead Mike Galanos. After playing the now-infamous interview in which Bob Costas asked Jerry Sandusky if he, Sandusky, is a pedophile, Galanos barked to viewers, “That was not a yes or no answer!” Granted, Sandusky hemmed and hawed in his reply, but he clearly said “no.”
God help any criminal defendant if Galanos ever lands on the jury.

Does anyone else recall Bradley Cooper, People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive,” from his man-on-man sex scene in Wet Hot American Summer? Cooper (I know you want the details) assumes the “female position” in his auspicious motion picture debut.
Mel Gibson, some of us miss you.
Speaking of men kissing men … the Vatican used its clout to get clothing retailer Benetton to stop using a doctored picture of Pope Benedict XVI kissing al-Azhar Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyeb. OK, Vatican, you can stop Benetton but you can’t stop all of us. I will gladly post anything that belittles this Pope, because this Pope shields child molesters.
Hard to say who had a tougher week: Joe Paterno, who got fired and learned that he has cancer on the same day, or Robert Wagner, whom the police say is not a suspect in the re-opened Natalie Wood case, but whom everyone thinks is a suspect in the re-opened Natalie Wood case.
And finally, as a long-suffering Minnesota Vikings fan, I think I might have found a soul-mate:
