Rachel Maddow on why Gov. Rick Perry is f*$#ing with the wrong Mexican

I wrote about the case of Texas v. “Machete” on Friday, but Ms. Maddow puts it in some interesting political context and is also much cuter than I.

Oh, and for TV’s smartest liberal to say that this was the stupidest tax news story in the week of the tax deal which has torn the Democratic party asunder — let’s just say she’s really saying something.

The Biggest Loser: time to break up the alliances

As this season’s “Biggest Loser” on NBC hurtles toward its conclusion, I think we can agree on two things. One, the season has dragged on to epic proportions. And two, the alliances of the yellow team and gray team have gotten a bit out of hand. With that, here is how it all went down last night……

The show began with a clip of last week’s elimination (Victoria) and then host Allison Sweeney telling Koli and Sunshine that everyone would be invited back in for an announcement.

Top Chef Las Vegas: roughing it

Last night on Bravo’s “Top Chef: Las Vegas,” the remaining 12 contestants were asked to rough it, literally. But first, a unique quickfire challenge that would be judged by special guest Tim Love, who was a contestant on “Top Chef Masters” and owns Lonesome Dove Western Bistro and The Love Shack in Fort Worth, Texas. The challenge, as voted on by TV viewers, was to cook something using a unique ingredient–cactus. Thankfully this beat out the other two possibilities–rattlesnake and kangaroo. (ewwwww).
