'Log Cabin’s absence has left a void on the political landscape.'

  3. Mary Tyler Moore, a Republican! I knew there was something about her that I never liked....just couldn't figure out what it was., she is like that woman she played in "Ordinary People"--cold, cold, that senator from Texas?...the one that hated Sarah Palin nomination with a passion?

    Posted by: Derrick from Philly | Mar 20, 2009 4:22:36 PM

  4. OH Mary, Mary, Mary! You revere the very right wing people whose rabid ideology would have made it impossible for Mary Richards to become a successful working woman.

    No wonder Rhoda, Phyllis and Mr. Grant think you’re and asshole.

  5. Given her dislike of the citizens of the Republic (and the other half of NI), I'd be loath to brand Robinson "Irish". She would probably prefer to be called British, but deserves neither title.

  6. It doesn't surprise me to learn at Mary Tyler Moore is a right-winger. It only adds to the unpleasant opinion I've had of her for years, based upon personal experience. I've worked on several awards shows she has been a part of and people need to realize she is nearly the opposite of her image. She is manipulative, selfish, rude and often mean.

  7. Mary I loved you on your TV show, and Ordinary People but really?

    Your taste in men is as twisted as your politics. You say Frank Sinatra and the Pope 'looked into your soul'? News flash lady, you don't have one, or a brain it seems. I'd have your Doctor husband look into that Mary.

  8. No mere irony that MTM is pro-Repub. and she has insulin-dependent diabetes and yet she is pro-stem cell research which is antithetical to the Repub. platform. Too many insulin shocks have affected her cognition apparently.

  9. Who gives a fuck what that trivial pursuit question mary tyler moore is? Elton John looks like a parade float. Get your priorities STRAIGHT, ladies.

  10. I loved the Mary Tyler Moore show. So this is very disappointing news. I'm not sure I'll be able to watch that show without thinking about her Fox News/McCain debilitating mental illness.

  11. Hmm... seeing how Elton looks only shows why he ended up on this list.

    Even though he's last he's (really gay)!

    Shame... but hey not everyone can look good at 61!

  12. That's what suicide is for, nathan.

  13. In spite of the fact that she described herself as a "Libertarian centrist", the extremists here have now labeled Mary Tyler Moore a "twisted", "right-wing", "Republican", "asshole".

    Is the reading comprehension level really that low among the inmates of this website, or is it just instinctual bigotry and failure to understand that there is a world of people out there who don't fit snugly into one of your little "R" or "D" boxes?

    You're the reason we keep getting more of the same corruption and stupidity from the two "twisted" gangs of "assholes". Be very proud of yourselves, vapid little long as you have one another to pat on the back everything will be just great in the world.

  14. MTM has had her face pulled too tight, I think. Also, she's a lonely, rich old lady. (That b*tch is loaded, she doesn't know how life is for people in the real world.) Also, she lost her son, maybe that twists her logic, it certainly must hurt deep-down. I hope she gets a clue.

  15. Elton John looks like he just spit up a big gay footlong on his lapels and down his sleeve and Poor Miss Joel had a stroke watchin' Porkchop go to town. Some old broads ain't fit.

    MARY?! That's what happen when you get the sugars for so long. She got the sugars and her brain all crusted up. Somebody give her a fudgecicle and put her out of her misery, and I DON'T mean a hot one...unless she asked Elton nicely. That old hag shits sugar, I just know it!

    Speakin of HOT, they named that hot Benjamin boy's character Ben Sherman. BEN SHERMAN! Ooooh, I'd sure like to wear him like a new pair of...mmmm mmmmmm!

    And Suze Orman? *SNAP!*

  16. I agree, get your priorities right!

    Bag on Elton!

    That's what's important!

    Paul C has a point, just 'cause someone's a Republican doesn't mean they are Godless and will threaten the sanctity of marriage with their anti-family agenda.

    Posted by: Derek Washington | Mar 20, 2009 9:43:22 PM

  17. My priorities are straight.

    @ Tank,
    Elton John has *always* been a parade float. He's Elton *Freakin* John. If he weren't day glow, he wouldn't be Rocket Man. He'd be like Libberace without the rhinestones.

    Also @ Paul C.,
    MTM like Charles Krauthammer and Bill O’Reilly and watches Faux News a lot and would have campaigned for McCain/Palin. She said so in herself. I don't think there is anything wrong with *anyone's* reading comprehension skills. Yours, maybe.

  18. I have lived too long! Mary, Mary, Mary. A repug! Oh pluck these eyes out! Rip these ears off! No! .... At least I won't have to save up to buy the DVD's of her TV series now.

    Posted by: Reggie | Mar 21, 2009 12:32:49 PM

  19. Perhaps I wasn't understood. Elton John looks like a big fatty fatty fat fat, fat bastard.

    Posted by: TANK | Mar 21, 2009 12:38:26 PM

  20. I think Paul C has it right. You expect tolerance for yourself but do not grant it to others. Until she attacks gay people you have no reason for the vitriol. You not only insult her but her illness. My mother is diabetic as well, BTW.

    I may just become a homophobe after reading this thread.

    Let's focus on the real priorities:

    Was that Elton John or does Rerun from What's Happening have a white twin brother?

    Posted by: Attmay | Mar 21, 2009 4:13:04 PM

  21. And BTW, GGreen, everyone who has ever worked with Ed Asner considers him to be human garbage, and not because of his political beliefs.

    And Valerie Harper was a big proponent of EST, a dangerous crackpot "self-help" group from the 1970s.

    Posted by: Attmay | Mar 21, 2009 4:17:15 PM

  22. I try not to be judgmental when it comes to people's weight, afterall I have a nice beer gut going on, but Elton, honey, that is just unhealthy.

    Posted by: Will | Mar 21, 2009 5:17:57 PM

  23. Elton just has a bad case of gas.
