Welcome back. Come on in, it's pretty dreary out there. There's nothing like a nice January rain to get you going, particularly when it's so dark outside, you think you woke up two hours early at first. Yes, I'm feeling energized, how about you? Fortunately, BDH and Little Buddha just made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a medium DD, and let's clear out a little rainy Clutter.
Elizabeth Warren raised $5.7 million last quarter in her campaign to take on U.S. Senator Scott Brown this fall. Senator Brown "only" raised $3.2 million, so I expect him to try to portray himself as the little guy taking on the big bad Democratic machine, despite the fact that he still has more than twice as much money ($12.8 million) in the bank as Warren ($6 million).
Which of these will happen first: The Red Sox will make a deal with the Cubs regarding Theo Epstein, or Mitt Romney will release his tax returns? It has to be the Sox deal, right?
It is sort of fascinating to watch all of the other GOP presidential candidates attack Mitt Romney for being a "vulture capitalist" who put profits before people. Doesn't that make him the model Republican?
Who is the one GOP candidate that former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer says can stop Romney?
Newt Gingrich continues his kamikaze attack on Mitt Romney with a new ad. There's a little something for everyone here:
Dave Weigel looks at the Republican primary and suddenly feels like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day.
Haven't we told this story before? (pic via unrealitymag.com)
For all of the talk of supposed voter fraud in this country, the most prominent case of it actually happening was carried out by conservatives.
I don't really drink juice that often anymore because it's pretty high in sugar. Even if I could get past that though, fungicide would probably be enough to stop me.
A hearty cheers to Boston Bruins forward Marc Savard, who bought a luxury suite at the TD Garden for the remainder of this season, and all of next season, to be used by patients from Children's Hospital Boston.
The Bruins take on longtime rivals, the Montreal Canadiens tonight. That alway makes for a fun evening.
This is too good to pass up: Jerry Thornton from Barstool Sports makes a convincing argument that Tim Tebow is actually the Antichrist.
The fun continues with the New York Jets as anonymous players call embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez "lazy" and "coddled," and say they'd rather have Peyton Manning as quarterback. I doubt Manning's walking through that door, guys.
The Hollywood Reporter has an interesting behind-the-scenes look at FunnyOrDie.com. If those guys think their site is worth $300 million, I can't even imagine what Clutter must be worth. Not that I would sell it, of course...but maybe I'll have BDH and Little Buddha run the numbers.
I admit it, I'm amazed that One Tree Hill has lasted nine seasons and almost 200 episodes. I haven't heard anyone mention the show once in at least five years, so I'd love to know who is still watching it.
Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. Zach Galifianakis has a talk show on FunnyOrDie.com called, "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis." He asks Hollywood celebrities the kinds of hard-hitting questions that you just won't see anywhere else, so let's have his interview of Steve Carrell be today's, "Clip of the Day." This is journalism at it's best, folks.
Thanks for stopping by, it was great to see all of you as always. Have a good day, and try not to get to down because of the rain. Come back again soon, and we'll have more fun.
