As you’ve probably heard, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) showed his signature compassionate-conservative side on Sunday during a speech at the Strafford County Republican Committee.
When a very understated Cruz said, “the whole world is on fire,” A three-year-old girl, already traumatized by hearing Ted Cruz speak, I’m sure, had to check that she had not misheard him, asking, “The world is on fire?” Cruz replied “Yes! Your world is on fire!” And it was adorable.
Sunday night’s Golden Globes awards were truly epic. Hosting the awards ceremony for the third and last time, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were amazeballs, went out with a bang, will be missed and should basically host every event ever. There were, of course, examples of douche-baggery (you know who I’m talking to… Jeremy Renner and Bill Bob). But the night was also marked by ground breaking nominations and wins, which honored people, ideas and populations who are all to often ignored, marginalized, invisible. In other words, nominations and wins which would make especially self-pitying straight, white, male conservatives who freak out about their alleged loss of power, extremely uncomfortable, angry, sad, and even more self-pitying. So, here, without any further ado, I present the moments from the 2015 Golden Globes that made conservative heads explode. (OK. A little bit more ado… Because I don’t actually have the footage of exploding heads, to illustrate the reactions as I imagine them, I turn to GIFs of some of the characters from The Office.)
