Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man?

12 Nov

As a frequent visitor to Hollywood when I lived in Los Angeles, I encounter a good number of impersonators and persons in costumes. What happens if a crime-fighting hero becomes the criminal? That’s what happened to this Spider-Man impersonator, Christopher Loomis, as he was caught by Los Angeles police after he allegedly assaulted a man near the Hollywood and Highland complex. Too bad his “spider-sense” didn’t let him escape, although he could get away with it in London as the police would have to do a lot of paperwork before even making an effort to catch him.

Note to self: Don’t give money to Spider-Man or any superhero lookalikes in Hollywood.

While on the subject of right-wing wackos…

Did Glenn Beck rape and murder a young girl in 1990? I hope he didn’t, but good ol’ Glenn wasn’t pleased that his name ended up on a website based on a rumor of a rape and murder of a young girl in 1990. But he lost his case against the person responsible for the domain recently. I thought Glenn was pro-Constitution because he always talks about it and defending it from “socialists” and “communists” like Obama and any other Democrat that crosses his path. Of course, he’s pro-1st Amendment, so long as it’s not him who’s the center of criticism or satire. Who’s the Commie now?

Here’s one of Glenn’s greatest weeps:

…and Keith Olbermann roasting him on an open fire:

¡Adios, Señor Dobbs!

Well, this was quite unexpected. Lou Dobbs, the famous anti-illegal immigrant cum “birther” ranter, is “pursuing other options” and leaving CNN immediately. I’m not sure what pursuing other options means to Dobbs, but I’m hoping the guys at CNN are sick of his narrow-minded views.

When I lived in the states, I admit I watched his show occasionally, but didn’t agree with nearly all his views. The only matter Lou and I could agree on is his efforts to protect the middle class from the overarching influence of corporations. All his other opinions, including his unwavering stance on illegal immigration and questioning Obama’s citizenship, are just garbage.

It wouldn’t surprise me if he ends up at Fox News, but he’s going to compete with Glenn Beck, Bill-O, and Hannity. Good luck. So farewell, Mr. Dobbs, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out!
