Gloria Allred Still Figuring Out How to BCC

Yahoo’s Dylan Stableford got a funny scoop after super lawyer Gloria Allred accidentally forgot to BCC the 380 journos on her invite list to an Oscar viewing party at the Beverly Hills Hotel–on behalf of Ginger White, the woman who claims to have had a 13-year affair with Herman Cain.

First of all, what a weird fucking party to go to. Even by LA standards.

“So, did you watch the Oscars last night? The fucking French, huh?

“Yeah. What was all that yelling about? Just bring the dog up with you, tap dance a little and get the hell out of there.”

“Anyway, hung out with Herman Cain’s (alleged) mistress at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Just a doll. And she totally called Meryl Streep. The Academy owed her one.”

As far as the actual blown BCC goes, Stableford writes that at least one journo on the list wasn’t too pleased. “Dear Gloria: Thanks for sharing your entire mailing list with your entire mailing list.”

Stableford has the emails in full if you’re curious.

If Only They Gave Out Pulitzers For Headlines

Happy Monday Fishbowlers. The week has barely started and this Fishie is already set to give “Headline of the Week” honors to The Onion. Best part about the headline above, The Onion staff was so gangster they didn’t even bother to write a story for it. They just stuck a picture of Herman Cain underneath. Excellent show.

Video: Herman Cain on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Whether you like him or not, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain held his own Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Kudos to Jimmy Kimmel for not shying away and asking the tough questions — ranging from the fourth woman coming forward and accusing Cain of sexual harassment to smoking pot.

Funny or Die Launches New Political Site

Funny or Die has always had a heavy political bent. Not just political humor either. The site hasn’t shied away from advocacy if the issue was right (and by right we mean left). So it was no surprise that with the 2012 election heating up, Funny or Die has decided to launch a new political site they’re calling Live Funny or Die. They kicked things off with a bit casting Mike Tyson as Herman Cain. Don’t know if they chose Tyson before or after Cain’s sexual harassment allegations came to light, but, either way, great call.

Herman Cain Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

I hope Herman Cain has a great sense of humor because the Republican presidential candidate will be a guest on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night.

Jimmy Kimmel will speak to Cain just hours after a fourth woman, Sharon Bialek, came forward this morning and said the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO allegedly tried to reach for her genitals and pulled her head towards his crotch in 1997.

Be easy on him, Jimmy.
