We love that Stone included the pretzel choking incident in his second “W” trailer. This looks hilarious:

He was smitten…
On entering a room filled with several Pakistani officials this afternoon, Palin was immediately greeted by Sherry Rehman, the country’s Information Minister.
“And how does one keep looking that good when one is that busy?,” Rehman asked, drawing friendly laughter from the room when she complimented Palin.
“Oh, thank you,” Palin said.
Pakistan’s recently-elected president, Asif Ali Zardari, entered the room seconds later. Palin rose to shake his hand, saying she was ‚”honored” to meet him.
Zardari then called her “gorgeous” and said: “Now I know why the whole of America is crazy about you.”
“You are so nice,” Palin said, smiling. “Thank you.”
A handler from Zardari’s entourage then told the two politicians to keep shaking hands for the cameras.
“If he’s insisting, I might hug,” Zardari said. Palin smiled politely.
Sounds delightfully awkward. Can we start some internet rumors fueling speculation that Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari could become the Second Dude?
As always, Taibbi nails it:
Here’s what Sarah Palin represents: being a fat fucking pig who pins ‚”Country First” buttons on his man titties and chants ‚”U-S-A! U-S-A!” at the top of his lungs while his kids live off credit cards and Saudis buy up all the mortgages in Kansas.
Now, go read the whole damn thing.

Every face on a Joy T- Shirt has been inspired by a real person. When you wear your shirt you are encouraged to think about that person and how your everyday actions can affect others and the world we live in. After you purchase a shirt you may then upload a photo of your own visage via the participate link to have your face drawn by hand and worn on the hearts of others. It is about taking an active stance against racism and discrimination while being an advocate for peace and equality… because in someway or another, we are all connected!

Except for the avant-garde Ocularis screenings in the old Galapagos, North Brooklyn has been a dead zone for movie theaters for years. … The Observer says a long-talked-about Williamsburg movie theater is inching toward reality.
And it may even open as soon as next spring! It was originally going to be called the Brooklyn Kinetiscope and open last spring, but now it’s called Cassandra Cinemas (after executive director Cassandra Lozano). Located at 136 Metropolitan Avenue, the three screen theater will emphasize indie and art house titles, and also host a cabaret and cafe. …
The good news is that program director Jamie Hook seems like a real film snob, telling the Observer he sees the venture as “a mom-and-pop theater for the 21st century. The Third Reich mentality of the hipsterdom of Williamsburg would chew alive and rip apart anything it didn’t approve of.
UPDATE: Craig Ferguson tore McCain a new asshole too.
