I've been repeatedly assured that it's the conservatives who are all about the charity.

Wonder how much the Fox pundits will raise.

Good for them. Of course, a million is nothing compared to the $30 billion or so they'll need to rebuild, but at least it will help with the emergency efforts.

The sketch Colbert and Nick Kroll did before they kicked off the campaign was farking hilarious, too:

He is still a better Catholic than most of the GOP.

My usual plug:

Don't forget Dominica, the first island picked out by Maria for nuclear-attack-level destruction, cannot count on aid from a major developed economy even in principle. Dominicans are reduced to seeking help from their diaspora and crowd-sourcing from whoever can spare them a few bob.

Donate to official relief efforts at JustGiving here if you like. About USD226000 have been raised there.

Website with details of other ways to give (if you'd rather avoid doing it online) here,

Twitter with updates and related news of Dominica's recovery here.

Electing celebrities to public office is a generally bad idea, but if we must, why not Colbert?  He's already done more for Puerto Rico than the Shiatgibbon in Chief, and he actually seems to understand the core tenents of Christianity.  If not Colbert, why not Zoidberg?

Oprah


She is electable

She will get a lot of the woman's vote, all of the liberal vote, and can bring minorities to the polls.


She is a self made business person, able to handle a huge corporation, and seems smart enough to hire and listen to the right advisors in areas she is unsure of.

ended up watching it too after the NFL game ended. was definitely a well done delayed 'But wait ... there's more!' kind of build up. and Lin was nice enough to up the ante with a PuberMe video. but then guests came out and i changed the channel.

it was impressive with all the people who got in on it, too. well done, Colbert, Moonves, Kroll, CBS and everyone else who contributed to that 1 million.

That matches Trump's one million dollar pledge. Remember that? I bet Trump doesn't and I also bet Trump hopes we don't either.

Well that's nice and all, but did he throw them paper towels?

Aren't many of them Protestant?

Because people like Stewart and Colbert can do more good in the entertainment sector than in the government sector. Trump went in to make money, I don't see Colbert/Stewart going in to grift.

Indeed, I agree. Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit, is it?

Didn't you hear?  The Trump tax cuts will enable the middle class to buy a new car of their own!
