Jokes are like elusive butterflies that can only be ensnared with a good sense of humor. Sometimes they land willingly on our outstretched hand and delight us, sometimes they fly above our heads. Other times, they should be left in their cocoon and stomped on before they see the light of day…
Tricia Macke, an anchor for Ohio's Fox 19, took to her personal Facebook page last month to rant against the cable news personality, writing "Rachel Maddow is such an angry young man" on Oct. 12.
I'm no professional comedy critic (aka Satan's spawn), but it seems like Macke's joke was not in good taste. Making fun of someone's appearance is really just bullying. For example: Tricia Macke is a bitter skeleton face with Skyfall villain hair. See? That's neither true nor nice, even if it is true.
After some of her fans took offense, Macke had the perfect opportunity to
apologizecome up with a hilarious tag for her initial joke: "I am sorry," Macke wrote to one such fan. "I should have said antagonistic." BOOOOOM. This woman is on fire, which is good because it'll prepare her for the afterlife.

Apparently Newt Gingrich has a half-sister and neither of her halves like men. Candace Gingrich-Jones is a gay rights advocate who is married to a woman (Newt did not attend the wedding) and is apparently the cool one in the family — she was even in an episode of Friends. So what if she married a woman? Newt Gingrich married three of them.
Last night, she appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show to engage in some sibling rivalry…
When I first saw this story, I misread it as "half-gay sister" and thought, "Newt Gingrich isn't even tolerant of his sister being half-gay?"
And then I realized how ignorant I was, and that's why I decided to run for the Republican nomination.
