Oops! They did it again. And we must boycott the Oscars. Clearly, homophobia is a problem within the 94% white, 76% male Academy (average age: 63). Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara get Oscar nominations for playing lesbians in “Carol” while Sarah Paulson gets snubbed for the same movie. Ms. Paulson is a lesbian, playing a lesbian, and we cannot have […]
Just a few weeks until the first votes of 2016 will be cast. After two debates, where candidates mixed it up and entertained us, Miss Craig McCartney has a few thoughts to get off his chest.
By the time you read this, the Powerball numbers for the $1,500,000,000 (doesn’t that look bigger than $1.5 billion?) lottery will have been drawn. Meaning that this column will be either the most prescient or the most immediately outdated column I’ve written. But here goes… I’d like to offer up to the Lottery Gods why I should win the jackpot. […]
After a lovely holiday, Miss Craig McCartney brings in the new year with a commentary on the current state of affairs. Craig even offers some advise to unlikely parties.
How are those New Year’s resolutions going for you? Not so good? I resolved to address my co-dependent relationship with carbs, but that’s hard to do when there’s leftover croquembouche in the kitchen. So, I’m going to focus on something that requires even more willpower. Here goes. Don’t complain; don’t explain. This seemingly simply maxim has been attributed to everyone from Disraeli to Ford […]
I was disappointed this week when the Screen Actors Guild nominations were announced, and some recent television performances did not make the cut. First off, how could Donald Trump’s performance as lead actor in a reality series (which is rather an oxymoron) be overlooked? The show has been on CNN, MSNBC and Fox on a daily basis for months. Part […]
Ever feel like Lili von Shtupp? I do, right now. Because I’m tired. Not that I’m tired of what was exhausting Lili…all that “love uninspired” could get anyone down. So to speak. (If you are gay and do not know Lili, you are required to sign up immediately for a remedial course in Gay Sensibility. Being born after 1974 does […]
Ever since the horrific attacks in Paris, I have seen so many Facebook posts showing concern for the French, in general, and Parisians, in particular, and felt rather flummoxed about how I should show my own support. I don’t look good in multi-colored vertical stripes, so that Facebook app thing on your profile picture didn’t seem right. So, I decided […]
The first taping after the 4th Republican/Fox Business Debate aka Snooze Fest. Miss Craig McCartney throws support to one particular republican candidate….with one proviso. For more Craig McCartney goodness, be sure to visit www.letmesay.net. Also, be sure to like “Well Let Me Say This About That” on Facebook. Craig will be back next week with another installment.
So far, 2015 has been the year of ongoing outrage. From Aaron Schock to Indiana bakers, Hillary’s emails to Trump’s wall, all the way to Kim Davis’ blue jumper to Houston’s bathroom phobia, I have zigged and zagged with the scandals and controversies, trying hard to find the energy to be outraged about every twist and turn in the road.
