Deer run along the Golden Gate Bridge during rush hour, snarl traffic

Yesterday evening, two deer hopped onto the Golden Gate Bridge just as rush hour was in full swing.

Fortunately, drivers were careful and gave them space…

Of course that meant that traffic got really backed up…

Sean Hannity is mad at Stephen Colbert…for a joke that Hannity hasn’t even seen

August 8, 2014 | 1 comment

After “Apparently Kid” shot to stardom earlier this week, Stephen Colbert addressed what a concern this is for newsmen like himself and, perhaps more imminently, Sean Hannity…

Soon afterward, TV Newser tried to end an interview with Sean Hannity on a light note, asking him what he thought of getting picked on by Colbert. Hannity was in no mood for laughing…

First of all, he’s not as funny as Jon Stewart. Stephen Colbert will have the lowest-rated late night show. There are issues that just aren’t funny. Terrorism isn’t funny. I didn’t see the bit. I won’t see it. I don’t care.

Maybe Stephen Colbert needs to come over here and get a dose of reality. He sits in the comfort of his studio, reading jokes written for him by 30 writers. So, I have a challenge for Stephen Colbert: I’ll pay for your flight. I’ll pay for your hotel, your meals. Then you sit on the border. You talk to the people. You sit across from the mother of an Israeli solider who was killed, and then make a joke about it.

If you’re skimming and didn’t read that whole quote, here’s the short version: No, Hannity didn’t watch the joke in question. But he still doesn’t like it.
