In case you missed it, Bill Maher appeared on The View yesterday to promote his recently released book, The New New Rules. He didn't talk about his book much, though, instead spending the bulk of his time with the ladies defending his choice to mock View host Elisabeth Hasselbeck on his HBO show Real Time with Bill Maher.
Back in February, Maher used as comedy fodder the brutal assault endured by CBS reporter Lara Logan in Egypt, joking that in exchange for Logan's safe return, "we will send Elisabeth Hasselbeck."
Hasselbeck claims she wasn't personally offended by the joke, but that she thinks it's an affront to women. She might be right.
Maher says the one-liner was not aimed at Hasselbeck as an individual, but argues that Hasselbeck is a "public figure" who is "out there as fodder for comedians to make comments on." When Hasselbeck insinuated that the joke was in poor taste, Maher maintained his stance, suggesting that he must "live on the line" of good taste to appease his

Twilight CastTeenage girls just can't get enough vampire melodrama. The fourth and second to last movie in the 'Twilight' series opens Friday, and it's already getting throngs of obsessive "twi-hards" to open their wallets.
By early this week the film had sold out more than 2,500 screenings, many of those midnight screenings.
It'll be playing late tonight at 3,250 locations - screenings many fans plan to attend in attire befitting the wedding the characters 'Bella' and 'Edward' have in the film.
The question is whether the film can top the record for midnight screenings set by 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,' set this summer.
"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," has a very good chance of setting records.
It's projected to gross as much as $140 million in the US this weekend, making it only the second film this year to top $100 million in its first weekend.
At the high end, some estimates are as much as $155 million. With the film expanding to

Its crazy how this year is flying by! Soon it will be time to start making those resolutions for 2012 to get us one step closer to the goals and dreams we've set for ourselves and our blogs. This space is constantly evolving and the opportunities that out there for us is bananas! It's an exciting time and the fact that we can make a career out of doing what we love is so awesome. Starting the journey to your dream is half the battle, making that serious commitment to yourself to do what you gotta do to make things happen.
I made a few serious commitments to myself this past year, one of them including my book. I finally finished the draft and submitted it to my team for editing. Was it perfect? Not by a long shot but I'm thinking I just need to add some here, some there and we're good. To make a long story short, what has to be done is going to be at least a couple of month's worth of work (on top of all the things I want to do my blog). What I thought I nailed, I
I have a job, I'm investing in my retirement, I have an emergency fund, and I have a non-retirement investment portfolio. But, here's the reader's question...I have some credit card debt and an auto loan. Should I use my non-retirement investment portfolio to pay down my debt?
These kind of financial decisions are complicated because they involve multiple factors. The first is an assessment of risk and financial priorities and second is a little bit of financial math.
I always start with the risk assessment. Before you make any money decisions you should make sure you have the minimum safety nets in place. In my opinion, that means you have a couple of months of income in a savings account and you've started to contribute to a retirement account. In this case, it sounds like those basis are covered so let's move to the math.
Interest rates are the key to many of the personal finance decisions you will make. WhetherRead More »from Should I Wipe Away My Debt or Stay the Course?
naked as a J-bird and not one ounce of sin in their head....
my goal was reached when my little shiny baby butt arrived here on Mother Earth…
and for all most seventy years I've been preparing my body on its demise while nourishing my soul in what it has to look forward to when this O'fart's ticker runs out of the fuel for life….
Greed is no where in sight...
Have you looked around lately?
1. Buy your new TV in September or January. That's when the new models come out and the prices go way down on discontinued models. Another time to get a deal: Black Friday, if you're willing to brave the crowds.
2. Shoppers' questions boil down to this: LED, LCD, or plasma? LEDs and LCDs use the same technology, but LEDs are thinner and more expensive. LEDs can also be too reflective in a bright room. Plasmas offer the best picture for your money, especially if you're watching at an angle, but they're thicker than the others, and ghost images can be an issue.
3. Which brands do I recommend? For LCDs, LG, Panasonic, Samsung, and Sony have consistently been among the best in rankings by Consumer Reports. Among plasmas, Panasonic tops the list.
4. Our margins on TVs are so thin, they're almost nonexistent. The prices are designed to get you in the store, and then we try to sell you the expensive cords, accessories, and, of course,Read More »from What Your TV Salesman Won’t Tell You
