When is an all-star not an all-star?

When that all-star is female, evidently. Then she’s a “lady all-star.”

This is the kind of thing that annoys me. Greatly.

’90 percent chick’? Dream on

Dear Glenn Beck:

Sir, you are ridiculous.

The New York Times insists you and your Fox News show are a “phenomenon.” It’s not the first time the Gray Lady has been wrong; in fact, the paper has received several complaints for telling a lopsided story. But in your latest NYT interview — this time with New York Magazine — you really went too far. You were talking about your YouTube-famous crying video, and said: “I’m a crybaby. I cry at commercials. I am 90 percent chick in that territory.”

Hold. The. Phone.

Ninety percent chick? Sir, you are an arrogant, sexist moron.

You’re not new to this role, of course.

Mr. Beck, you do not have the emotional or intellectual range to ever be “90 percent chick.”
