A Tweet Or Two



Bravo, bravo, bravo and Congratulations. It’s been a LONG time coming


Thank you, Shonda Rhimes for reflecting the world as it should be. Also, the 3 women of color who have won Lead Actress at the SAG Awards have all come from Shonda Rhimes’ shows.  She has forever changed the face of TV and if you aren’t watching any of her shows, you need to correct that mistake


The LOVE that Taraji P. Henson showed the Black actresses who won last night is beautiful. She gave them standing ovations and led the cheers and made sure the audience recognized such huge accomplishments


A must watch speech




This is the best ad Apple has put out for Apple Music. Social media was agog. Who created this masterpiece? AVA DUVERNAY! Plus, there’ll be more










Men? Don’t sleep


Greedy jerks





Yo, Hillary? What’s good?




So, ye olde PM Cameron allegedly stuck his penis into a dead pig’s mouth while in college and commenced with the “sexy time.” And you thought the GOP was the only gift that keeps on giving

    Thanks so much, Ms Wonka, for another in a series if great news round-ups! I don’t have a lot of time (or energy) for watching news – and I’m always disappointed when I do! I am so thankful to come here and scroll through these tweets-or-the-day and feel quite up to date.

        And now, I doubt many Wisconsinites are happy to see him coming back. The US looked at their governor and said, “No thanks, Wisconsin, he’s all yours.”

    Hello TODers, I could use some of your awesome and powerful prayers for a dear friend of mine right now.

    My friend is undergoing surgery for a subdural hematoma (blood trapped in the skull, putting pressure on the brain) at this moment. His wife is very worried. The hope is that they can drill a small hole in his skull and drain the blood easily, avoiding a full crainiotomy (where they remove a big part of the skull). Sorry to be so graphic. He was riding his bike a few weeks ago and was clipped by a car and hit his head. The subdural hematoma was probably due to a small injury they didn’t catch then, exacerbated because he takes blood thinners.

    Please surround Bob and Bonnie with healing light and prayers for an easy and successful surgery. I know you don’t know them, but even a moment of your positive thought energy would help, I’m sure! Thanks TOD!

      Are you “sure” about Christie? His ego’s as big as his big fat mouth. And I believe he’s avoided New Jersey for months, and would have to belittle himself by going back there and facing The Garden State crowd as loser du jour. Which would make me laugh, I guarantee ya!

      I hope Trump continues to deny access and manages to alienate enough media outlets that they finally begin telling the
      truth about him. He’s an immature adolescent with the temperament of a bully who has to business thinking he could be president.

      September 21, 2015 at 10:24 pm

      Posing is right! HRC is more interested in being the first ‘woman’ president than she is in being president of the current US of A.

    • 101 4morefor44
      September 21, 2015 at 10:26 pm

      she helped build, and even ran for a while, the d.l.c. (democratic leadership council), one of the most washington d.c. insider groups out there. it’s all about getting getting cozy with the mega money. my god, she’s insufferable.

      “On February 7, 2011, Politico reported that the DLC would dissolve, and would do so as early as the following week.[4] On July 5 of that year, DLC founder Al From announced in a statement on the organization’s website that the historical records of the DLC have been purchased by the Clinton Foundation.[5]”

      clinton foundation “purchased” whatever was left of the d.l.c. yea, real outsider, she is. note: joe biden nor president obama were ever members of the d.l.c.

    • 102 vcprezofan2
      September 21, 2015 at 10:28 pm

      From what I’ve seen of her if HRC ever gets to the WH again it won’t take her long to take credit for *every* thing positive the O-Admin has done the last 6-8 years – she had the idea first; she planted the seed; she did it all…..her way.

    for all the media fluffing that he is an establishment alternative to dumbya 3 and all that alleged koch money, I am surprised that walker walked out without even the first vote being cast. something nasty about him the pipeline?

      no surprise there. And her stans on Twitter seem morbidly afraid of more debates as well. It’s almost as though they recall how the debates exposed her in 2008, and prefer to skip that part and just crown her this year’s winner….

      • September 22, 2015 at 9:36 am

        The problem was not exposing her as much as giving a good platform to others. In 2008 she was riding on her name recognition. The “inevitability” was a media narrative, not more. Once people knew Barack Obama, they realized they had a real choice.

        Forward to 2012. Exact same thing. Hillary is afraid that once people hear her opponents, her “inevitability” will be totally out the window.

        Bernie Sanders could make gains in the debate. Governor O’Malley too. And … Oh… I wish Joe Biden enters the race before the first debate. If he does… poor Hillary !!! Once people hear Joe Biden talk policy, with his authenticity and his wonderful way of explaining complex problems in simple language, watch out !!

        I’m telling you folks… If Joe decides to run and participates in the first debate… He’ll become the frontrunner right away.

        Why do you think Hillary’s surrogates are out there saying he shouldn’t run ????

    Vanessa Williams Joins ‘The Good Wife’ in a Recurring Role for Season 7

    By Tambay A. Obenson | Shadow and Act

    September 21, 2015 at 7:23PM

    Vanessa Williams will join the critically acclaimed drama “The Good Wife” in a recurring role this November. Williams will play Courtney Boalt, an extremely successful, self-made businesswoman who is potentially interested in backing Peter Florrick’s (Chris Noth) campaign for President. In the process, she meets Eli Gold (Alan Cumming), sparking a mutual attraction.

    “There are very few names you can put side-by-side that make you laugh,” said Executive Producers Robert and Michelle King. “Alan Cumming and Vanessa Williams are at the top of that list. We couldn’t be more excited.”

    “The Good Wife” returns for its seventh season Sunday, Oct. 4 (9-10 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network
