Jon Stewart Rips Texas Republicans, Sees No Blue Flip in Sight for Red State (Video)

1 hour ago

On his final day in Austin, Texas, Jon Stewart chained himself to the “Daily Show” desk, claiming that he isn't leaving the city that keeps it “weird.” However, if there is one thing that can get the Comedy Central host to leave the kind southern state with top-notch barbecue for his dreary New York City, it's the politics. While some talking heads see an opportunity for Texas to turn blue — changing over from a Republican state to a Democratic state — Stewart isn't finding any evidence of that anywhere. “Really? Texas is going blue? Listen, Texas has been a conservative »

Chelsea Handler Posts Topless Photo to Instagram to Battle Sexism

6 hours ago

Chelsea Handler‘s Instagram page got very interesting on Thursday night.
