Not even a week since suspect James Holmes shot up a Colorado movie theater -- killing 12 -- and asshat comedian Dane Cook treats his audience at the Laugh Factory to the following:

So I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes into the movie. And I don't know if you've seen the movie, but the movie is pretty much a piece of crap. Yea, spoiler alert.

I know that if none of that would have happened, pretty sure that somebody in that theater, about 25 minutes in, realizing it was a piece of crap, was probably like 'ugh f**king shoot me.'

Too soon, bro. TOO SOON.

In June, former steelworker and lifelong Democrat Donnie Box starred in this controversial pro-Obama ad, by Super PAC Priorities USA, that criticized Mitt Romney and his time at Bain Capital --  they "shut down entire livelihoods."

Now, just one month later, Box has some harsh words for Obama, as quoted in In These Times:

I think Obama is a jerk, a pantywaist, a lightweight, a blowhard. He hasn't done a goddamn thing that he said he would do. When he had a Democratic Senate and Democratic Congress, he didn't do a damn thing. He doesn't have the guts to say what's on his mind.

Box remains a Romney critic, but made clear that he considers him the lesser of two evils when it comes time to vote:

We didn't know who the hell Mitt Romney was when all that stuff started. It wasn't until later we found out who Romney was. We just knew he was just another guy with money. It wasn't until his boys came and started gutting the place that we found out he was an a**hole.

Meanwhile, according to the Atlantic, "[t]he ad's been in pretty high circulation, part of a $7 million ad campaign in Colorado, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, one that Priorities USA has said is partially responsible for hurting Romney's polling in swing states."

Beleaguered CNN didn't do itself any favors recently when host Carol Costello "welcomed" Bill Nye the Science Guy to a segment about fire and climate change:

If you Google your name, 'Bill Nye,' you're the kooky guy who doesn't know what he's talking about... You want to defend yourself?

His response is gold.

World Net Daily founder and prominent Obama administration critic Joseph Farah is convinced that the president is targeting him -- with drones.

Here's an excerpt from his interview last week with Infowars.com's Alex Jones:

I live in one of the most rural places you could possibly live in Northern Virginia and there could only be one thing that this drone was spying on and that would be me, that would be my property. This is the first term. If [Obama] is reelected, it's going to be war. They will be openly at war. We will be hunted down like dogs...

Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman appeared on NPR's Tell Me More on Thursday to help promote two of his upcoming films, The Dark Knight Rises and The Magic of Belle Isle. The discussion with host Michael Martin took a political turn, and Freeman offered his thoughts on President Barack Obama and the racial qualifications of a black President:

"First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him...they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America. There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America's first black president hasn't arisen yet. He's not America's first black president — he's America's first mixed-race president."

However, Freeman went on to say that he thinks President Obama has been unfairly treated by his political opponents since taking office, and criticized the Republican Party for being uncooperative during his first term.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's recent comments about newly elected Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi were fairly innocuous. She merely encouraged President Morsi to include women, Christians and young people in his new government, which would be a break from tradition in the African nation. But apparently something far more sinister is afoot. Thankfully Rush Limbaugh is on the case:

"Huma Abedin, Mrs. Anthony Weiner, Mrs. Huma Weiner, she is Hillary Clinton's number one aide. And Huma's mother is best friends with the new First Lady of Egypt, the wife of the new Muslim Brotherhood guy, Morsi. That's really all you need to know. But there's much more to know. That's why Hillary is out celebrating the brotherhood. That's why Hillary is joining Obama in telling the military to give it up for the Brotherhood guy. Because Huma's mom, there's actually a group, the Muslim Sisterhood, essentially, that is an offshoot of the Brotherhood. And Huma's mom is best friends with the new so-called First Lady of Egypt, who is also a member of the Sisterhood."

Less than a week after Dan Savage tweeted "The GOP's house fa**ots grab their ankles, right on cue. Pathetic," in reaction to GOProud's endorsement of Mitt Romney, the controversial and outspoken founder of the It Gets Better movement has doubled down, comparing the endorsement to substance abuse:

Mixing it up with GOProud last week got me thinking about why a gay man would endorse -- much less "commit significant resources" to help elect -- a man who has pledged, if elected, to do as much harm as he possibly can to gay people. I mean, what kind of fa**ot supports a politician who would do him harm? Oh, right: the same kind of fa**ot who would harm himself with drugs or alcohol or sex. The kind of gay men who don't like themselves or other gay people much. But while most self-loathing, self-destructive gay men are content to abuse booze, drugs, or d*ck, the self-hating GOProud boys abuse themselves with politics. And just like gay meth addicts who aren't satisfied harming only themselves, the boys at GOProud aren't satisfied harming only themselves. They want to harm other gay people -- they want to harm all gay people -- by getting Mitt Romney elected. And just like your meth-addicted friend who pushed the drug on you, or your drunk friend who mocked you for stopping at four, or your sexually out-of-control friend who insisted that you were a prude if you didn't play... with him down at the bathhouse, the GOProud boys want you to abuse yourself the same way that they're abusing themselves. They want you to vote for Mitt Romney for the same reason your meth-addicted pal wanted you to use that stupid drug. Because they're damaged.

Too far?
