Fox and Friends Wants Nancy Pelosi to Burn in Hell

Heckling the Speaker of the House is hilarious.

"OK, you do it. I'll be Nancy Pelosi."

This is horribly profane and incredibly violent. Happy Halloween!

The 25th Anniversary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Concert

I was lucky enough to be in attendance last night at Madison Square Garden where the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame held its absolutely epic 25th anniversary concert. From the opening solo Jerry Lee Lewis performance of "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On" to the grand finale (6 full hours later) when Bruce Springsteen led the musicians and the crowd in a sing-a-long of “(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher” this was rock & roll at its finest. The set list is here and some video highlights are below.


Simon and Garfunkel - “The Sounds of Silence”

Stevie Wonder with John Legend - “The Way You Make Me Feel”

John Fogerty and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band - “Oh, Pretty Woman”

Jay-Z and Alicia Keys Perform at the World Series

As much as I hate the Yankees, this was awesome.
