  1. He wasn't getting much work before Trump and he started cheerleading for Trump to find an income. People like him don't get hired because they can act, they get hired to get half naked in roles that have no substance. Now that he's older he can't get by on that anymore. When he ran for Congress one of my friends said she wanted to vote for him because she thought he looked good in Janet Jackson's video (face palm), so he really is just someone who has gotten by on looks.

  2. He clearly has admiration for Cuba and Nicaragua's communist regimes, so he's not going to worry about his supporters being toxic. Those were people who pushed revolution by any means necessary and while the governments they overthrew were terrible they ended up being not much better. If it takes bullying to takeover the party and win the nomination then Sanders is for it, but it isn't working because there aren't enough far left voters to put him over the top.

     

    With that said, he gave props to George Wallace for building a movement and has said things about most drug dealers being black, that class is a bigger issue than race, etc. Sanders has race issues.

  3. Some cases don't even get to trial for 6 months to a year, so it's totally absurd that the writers had Ben up for executions so quick. All Carlivati wanted was a overly dramatic execution scene where Ben was rescued. In fiction it is necessary to take some liberties with realism, but there is a limit and this story clearly crossed it.

  4. Klobuchar and Warren could take a number a delegates on Super Tuesday which would reduce Sanders' chances of running up a sizable plurality of delegates. Sanders' supporters include a lot of oddballs who have no real ideology other than liking any candidate who talks about revolution and change (some of them used to support Ron Paul who is the polar opposite of Sanders).

    Now, I'm picturing Joe Biden telling the crowd, "I was only supposed to be on every other Tuesday!".  Thank you, @ReddFoxx.

    You're welcome, lol.

     

    In post-South Carolina primary news, Biden is picking up donors from other candidates. This is big because he has been low on cash.

     

     

  6. Joe Biden had his Susan Lucci Emmy moment tonight. He has run for President four times over 36 years and this was his first primary win. That aside, his strategy to bet on South Carolina paid off and will give him a boost into Super Tuesday.

  7. That's not racist at all. Agricultural and domestic work is mostly done by immigrants now. And before immigrants, it was black people who were mostly doing that work. There as a bill that as passed in Alabama that was supposed to curb illegal immigration and free up agriculture jobs. Well once it was in place there were some legal citizens who signed up, but most of them didn't show up for work and lots of produce ended up rotting on the vine.

    Ah, but Tyler Perry said he tried running a writers' room and it was (his words) "a nightmare."  Apparently, it was the other writers' fault that his ratings dipped, even though, as showrunner, it is HIS responsibility to ensure that every script bears his voice.  (Say what you will about Joss Whedon, but I never heard him blame Marti Noxon for turning the last two seasons of "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer" into a chore to watch.)

     

     

    Doesn't Tyler Perry realize that, at the very least, letting actors wear their own hair would be more cost-effective?  Or is the man just trolling the haters at this point?

    He's stuck in the same mode that he was in for writing his plays and he very much prides himself on lifting himself out of poverty with his work (he was living in his car at one point years ago), so I'm guessing that gives him an elevated view of his writing.

     

    Wigs are a big part of theatre, but on stage props like wigs are a lot more common as they are used there to hide microphones and to better help transform actors in their characters. Television and film is a lot different, but he doesn't seem to get that. Or maybe he really is trolling, which would be absolutely hilarious.

  9. Russia was boosting Sanders in 2016 and now they are doing it again. One of Sanders' main surrogates, Nina Turner campaigned for Jill Stein in 2016 after Sanders didn't get the nomination. Jill Stein has ties to Russia and has been on RT more than once, so who is to say that Nina Turner isn't getting a check from Russia under the table? She originally supported Hillary Clinton but flipped to Sanders after Clinton wouldn't hire her, so clearly she is play for pay.

     

    Then there is his press secretary, Briahna Joy Gray who admitted that she voted for Jill Stein. Honestly it's not unbelievable to believe that more than a few people on the Sanders campaign are in league with Russia.

  10. Warren could have a surprisingly good showing in Nevada thanks to her debate performance and her calling out Bloomberg might have helped Biden a lot on Super Tuesday.

     

    I'm not sure how it will actually go over with voters, but Sanders' comment about having a summer camp made him seem a lot more out of touch than he portrays himself. He's not a billionaire, but he is still much more financially secure than most working and middle class Americans.

    Five days a week is much more demanding than once per week, which is why the comparisons between daytime and primetime can only go so far. 

    Respect has to come from within and again, because this genre was originally marketed to women/housewives and all the sexist ideas that go with it (just think of the connotations that the phrase "chick flick" conjures up), I'm not sure how much respect the genre got from network executives beyond how much soap they could sell and how much they could price the ad rates. I'm still not sure

    The origins most certainly have played a part in how much respect the genre gets. I think from the early 80s and on up to the early 2000s that the genre did gain a little more respect from the networks. The Daytime Emmys were a prestigious event like other awards, you had some soaps get primetime specials and Disney created Soap Net.
