(A Sprinkling of Things we Think you Ought to Know…)

Will on the Hill – Monday night was the annual “Will on the Hill” event for the Shakespeare Theatre Company. It’s an annual event that gathers politicians, journalists and other D.C. insiders to put on a performance that pairs elements of Williams Shakespeare with modern-day references.

According to their website, “proceeds from the event support STC’s many education, artistic and community outreach programs including in-school workshops and online learning resources that inspire new and diverse audiences and deepen the connection to classical theatre in learners of all ages.” One of the members of the cast was The Hill’s Managing Editor, Bob Cusack. Cusack tweeted this startling photo of himself moments before taking the stage. Turns out, acting is in Cusack’s blood. He tells FBDC, “It was my first time performing in Will on the Hill and brought back memories of when my parents had an off, off, off Broadway theater company in New York City. Last night I did Shakespeare, but back then it was Jack in Jack and the Beanstalk and Agatha Christie plays.” Aside from Jack, Cusack was an extra “Clear and Present Danger” and “Game Change.”

Twitter Gets Dumb During Breaking News

Ask anyone who watches the news and they’ll admit that this wasn’t the finest hour for the media. CNN botching facts, NYPost putting pictures of innocent men on their cover, InfoWars saying this is a government coverup. OK, it’s a stretch to refer to the jerkoffs at InfoWars as “media,” but, suffice it to say, it got ugly out there.

Welcome to the wee hours of Friday morning, when a manhunt got underway to bring the alleged Boston bombers to justice, and Twitter tried to keep up. It was a great source of breaking news and information. It’s also an incredible way to spread total bullshit very quickly. In the midst of everything, some people just didn’t know WHAT the hell to tweet. We’ve rounded up choice comments that left us scratching our heads and wondering what the hell they were trying to say. Read more

Breitbart Contributor Praises Perino for Raising Her Child

Breitbart’s Sonnie Johnson spins a folksy yarn about a recent conversation she had with her daughter after school one day. In her story,titled “How Dana Perino Saved My Daughter,” she says her daughter got off the bus and let her know that she “schooled” her teacher that day. I already don’t like this kid. No one likes a know-it-all,OK kid? Just do your homework, study for your tests and leave your teacher alone.

How did the little girl “school” her teacher? Johnson’s daughter says, “We were talking about Ancient Mali and I told her they made money from salt, gold, and slavery,” and “when the teacher questioned her about “the slave trade” she said, “yeah, Africans were selling slaves to Arabs long before the white man.” Ooohhh….  SICK BURN, little kid.

Wait, what doesFNC’s Dana Perino have to do with this whole thing? Read more

Breitbart’s Boyle Botches Boehner’s Bid for Speaker

Breitbart.com’s Matthew Boyle has spent weeks tweeting and reporting on the movement to replace Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) as Speaker of the House. In fact, he has been on a personal quest to oust the leader, as if that should ever be a reporter’s duty. Anyone who has looked at the approval rating of Congress recently knows that Boehner isn’t the most popular man in Washington. Recent months have seen Tea Party Republicans growing so frustrated with him that threats to his leadership arose. Despite the fact that NO ONE else wanted the position, Boyle began a series of bizarre reports saying that not only did Republicans have enough votes to deny Boehner his Speakership, Boehner was going to RESIGN the office of Speaker.

Try to follow Boyle’s logic… Read more
