Great Ridiculist tonight! I loved it when AC was talking about that TLC show about closeted gay guys who insist on being married to a woman and said, "You don't need to marry a woman to be called Daddy!"

The rare live Ridiculist was the best thing about Monday's 360--I've pretty much had it with the terrorist reports and the rest of the reports seemed to be just filler, but you can't go wrong when AC humorously takes down a homophobic bigot.

I wonder why he was in L.A. A 60 Minutes assignment perhaps?

The Bobby Jindal KTH was pretty good too--360 rarely goes after Republicans and their nonsense, so it's a nice surprise when they do.

Great take-down of Jindhal's ridiculous allegations on 360 last night!

Did anyone see this report that the crazy stalker that's been harassing Anderson is now accusing Ben of online harassment? Dude sounds really insane!

@aries moon - I was shocked to see AC360 go after a Republican, but then Jindal did give the interview to a CNN reporter, so I'm sure they were told to cover it. It was still refreshing to see such a segment on AC360 these days. Anderson used to do a lot of KTH segments on the stupid remarks that came out of the mouths of members of Congress, but he seems to have strayed away from them lately.

I was disappointed AC360 didn't use the MLK holiday to talk about the VRA, but then they would have to admit that the Republican leaning Supreme Court abolished it last year and they failed to cover it at the time.

The RidicuList was funny.

I'm guessing Anderson was somewhere on a 60 Minutes assignment this past weekend, since he didn't anchor AC360 Friday. He could have been in LA or made it that far on his return trip yesterday. He's in DC for the SOTU coverage tonight.

@anon 7:02 pm, I don't think AC360 has ever covered anything regarding voting rights and how the GOP has been trying to strip them away and put up barriers to make it more difficult for the elderly, minorities and college students to vote. AC mentioned in the Ridiculist on Monday how bad things were for gays in the past and how we should never go back to those days, but he's never been the slightest bit interested in how hard fought voting rights are being decimated systematically by the GOP.
