Heckuva job, Cory! Vulgar celeb tolerance brigade comes out strong for Booker

http://twitter.com/#!/CoryBooker/status/366727998730285056

On Monday, U.S. Senate hopeful Cory Booker proudly hit the stump with actress Eva Longoria, the 2012 Obama campaign co-chair known for her vulgar retweets about conservatives. (You know, those were the tweets she shared — and deleted — to create “dialogue.”)

But Longoria isn’t the only nasty piece of work pimping Booker’s Senate bid. A quick glance at his celeb supporters reads like a who’s who of Twitchy’s entertainment archives … and not in a good way.

Comedienne Sarah Silverman thinks joking about getting a “quickie aborsh” is as hilarious as telling Rick Santorum to “suck a d*ck.” Earlier this summer, she was spanked soundly for her pitiful walk-back of N-word tweets related to the the ranch leased by Gov. Rick Perry.

“Brave thinker” Lena Dunham likened voting for Obama to first-time sex and pissed on Memorial Day. Just yesterday she was called out by her own side for the unbearable whiteness of being a “Girls” cast member.

What was that about unbearable whiteness? Self-appointed race cop Mia Farrow is the one to ask. She’s also a huge fan of gay-baiting anyone she doesn’t like, from Justice Scalia to the Pope.

Race-baiting liar Russell Simmons is a race-baiting race-baiter. Enough said. And his lying political director Michael Skolnik is cut from the same mold.

Classy crowd, huh?

Too bad the oh-so-tolerant and loving Cher hasn’t weighed in … yet. For now, she’s keeping her laser-like focus on the “TBaggers.”

These 15 Childhood Celebrities Beat The Awkward Years. You Can, Too.

Everyone goes through a few awkward years growing up, even celebrities. The only difference is that their lives are almost obsessively documented for the world to see and criticize.

Despite that, these 15 childhood actresses and actors survived their awkward years with style. Most of them look completely different. Remember the little kid from Jerry Maguire? Wait until you see what he looks like now.  

1.) Shia LaBeouf from “Even Stevens.”

2.) Tania Raymonde from “Malcolm in the Middle.”

3.) Jonathan Lipnicki from “Jerry Maguire.”

4.) Jaleel White from “Family Matters.”

5.) Josh Peck from “Drake and Josh.”

6.) Abigail Breslin from “Little Miss Sunshine.”

7.) Michelle Trachtenberg from “Harriet the Spy.”

8.) Joseph Gordon-Levitt from “500 Days of Summer.”

9.) Alexa Vega from “Spy Kids.”

10.) Hilary Duff from “Lizzie McGuire.”

11.) Brian Falduto from “School of Rock.”

12.) Daveigh Chase from “The Ring.”

13.) Joseph Mazzello from the first “Jurassic Park” movie.

14.) Malcolm David Kelly. He played Walt on “Lost.”

15.) Haley Joel Osment from “The Sixth Sense.”

The level of former awkwardness in this post was surprisingly high. I can’t believe Joseph Gordon-Levitt used to be a long haired little kid. Share these transformation with your friends on Facebook and see what they think by clicking below.

Russell Simmons: Making anti-Islamic film ‘could be illegal’

http://twitter.com/#!/UncleRUSH/status/247047655606329344

Add Russell Simmons to the list of entertainment industry figures rethinking the meaning of freedom of speech in the wake of anti-American protests coinciding with the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Did we say anti-American? Never mind the burning flags; White House press secretary Jay Carney assured the nation that a single YouTube video is the sole target of Islamic rage. Plenty, including Bette Midler and Anthea Butler, are anxious to see the filmmakers jailed in order to appease the mobs.

Occupy Wall Street supporter Simmons, who grew his Def Jam record label by signing controversial acts such as the Beastie Boys and Public Enemy, is now thinking of the Islamic world as a crowded theater that needs policing. And with the feds interviewing Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and pressuring YouTube to review the video, it looks like Simmons might be close to finding a willing speech cop.

One complicating factor?

@UncleRUSH if that was about any other religion …. They're would be no violence

‘EPIC!’ Candace Cameron Bure, Danica McKellar ‘torture’ Jason Hervey [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/danicamckellar/status/443852741627355136

Oh my. D.J. Tanner vs. Winnie Cooper! Twitchy favorite Candace Cameron Bure, who played DJ Tanner on “Full House,” is on the cast of the new season of “Dancing with the Stars.” And so is Danica McKellar, who played the much-loved Winnie Cooper on “The Wonder Years.”

http://twitter.com/#!/kenziekate2/status/443977294865264640

We are excited too! “The Wonder Years” actor Jason Hervey is excited as well … yet tortured. Why?

http://twitter.com/#!/JasonHervey/status/443931694244966400

Well, the ladies have a fix to end the torture, Jason.

http://twitter.com/#!/danicamckellar/status/443933450538872833

Nice!

This Twitter user is trying to figure out who will win:

http://twitter.com/#!/S0DAP0PS/status/443966776817094656

You’d win the prize for remembering weird sitcom factoids, sir!

One thing is clear: ABC is the big winner here. A DJ Tanner vs. Winnie Cooper face-off is drawing in potential viewers.

Indeed.

But what about Jason Hervey’s brother on “The Wonder Years”? What is Fred Savage thinking?

Ha!

At First, You Would Have No Idea Why This Girl Has Thousands Of Chopsticks. Then Step Back…

Hong Yi started out as a simple artist with a YouTube channel. Hong Yi, known as Red to most, likes to paint. However, she doesn’t like to paint with a paintbrush. Instead, Red finds different ways to create her beautiful artwork. In one of her first paintings, she used a basketball to create the image. Now, she is using something else to create an incredible portrait (for someone you’ll recognize).

This is Hong Yi, known as “Red.”

Red is both an artist and an architect.

Jackie Chan’s art director contacted her, hoping to commission her to make something for Jackie’s 60th birthday.

She decided to make a portrait…

But it was unlike any you have ever seen before.

It was made entirely out of chopsticks.

Jackie had always been supportive of her work.

He saw her other portraits using unique mediums, like socks or coffee rings, and was entranced.

So, Red was hired to create his 60th birthday portrait.

She spent a month collecting 64,000 chopsticks, in Zhejiang and in Beijing

She tied the chopsticks into different bundle sizes with strings. Then, she hung them all from a steel frame.

Red presented the finished portrait at his birthday concert, in front of 10,000. And to think, she just started out with a YouTube channel, posting her work.

“It wasn’t easy to choose the material for Jackie’s piece. He is a world famous actor, an exceptional martial arts fighter, an environmentalist, and one of the most well-known faces internationally! I finally decided on chopsticks because Jackie had used them in some of the fighting scenes in his movies the Fearless Hyena and Karate Kid, and because chopsticks are Chinese. As he is also an environmentalist, I used disposable bamboo chopsticks to show that discarded materials can be reused and made into something meaningful and beautiful. This art installation is a tribute to the life, art and cultural significance of Jackie Chan.” -Red Source: Oh I See Red!

The final result of her labors is art, but the Red’s true artwork is how she creates her pieces. She is truly a creative genius, share her unique methods by clicking the button below.

Huh: NPR identifies ‘Mattress Girl’ Emma Sulkowicz as a ‘survivor’ because she considers herself one

At Twitchy reported earlier this month,Paul Nungesser, the man accused of rape by Emma “Mattress Girl” Sulkowicz, recently settled with Columbia University for an undisclosed amount. Nungesser had filed suit against the university for encouraging Sulkowicz’sprotest/art project, which consisted of her carrying a mattress everywhere she went, including the stage where she accepted her degree. The stunt was picked up by news outlets in 35 countries, even though a university investigation had found Nungesser not guilty.

The irony is thatSulkowicz had titled her art project “Carry that Weight,” though it’sNungesser who has had to bear the brunt of her display, without the assistance of celebrities, facts-be-damnedpoliticians like Sen. Karen Gillibrand, and the media. And speaking of the media:
