Ricky Gervais

Please join us at 7:30 tonight for liveblogging the 69th  Golden Globe Awards. While the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) may have decided to brave another year of Ricky Gervais emceeing their annual excuse to party with the stars, our liveblogging will be emceed/typed by Drew Grant.  Drew most recently liveblogged the Aeroshot Caffeine Inhaler experience and  attended the premiere of Portlandia while unintentionally shrooming–she is amply prepared to power through a few hours of Mr. Gervais’s naughty schoolboy act. We would suggest making some kind of game where you drink every time Ricky Gervais smiles sheepishly at his own jokes but then you wouldn’t make it through the first half-hour of our coverage–so don’t do that. Pace yourself so you’ll have it together enough to stick around and comment on the fun.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
