Blue-collar icons Bernie Sanders and Bruce Springsteen will face off at the Grammys

The Grammy Awards are often the site of vicious musical feuds, like last year’s (actually good-natured) showdown between Adele and Beyoncé, but things might get particularly heated this year in the traditionally sedate Spoken-Word category. That’s because, as reported by The Los Angeles Times, working-class icons…

Oh God, Ted Cruz just told Bernie Sanders to "Curb Your Enthusiasm"

Here is the tragedy of Ted Cruz’s permanently embryonic comedy career in a single, easily sound-bite-able moment: Even when he unleashes a hypothetically effective zinger—as he did at tonight’s tax debate against Bernie Sanders, referencing the Vermont senator’s Larry David connection by telling him to “Curb your…

Here's video of Larry David being as happy as Larry David gets about being related to Bernie Sanders

Earlier this year, Larry David—always looking for new ways to insert awkwardness into the universe—spilled a secret he wasn’t supposed to share from the then-upcoming season of PBS’s celebrity genealogy show Finding Your Roots With Henry Louis Gates, JR. The Curb Your Enthusiasm star was apparently just too delighted…

Bernie Sanders managed to find one nice thing to say about Donald Trump on The Late Show

To be honest, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) really only said one good thing about Donald Trump if you sort of squish together the two guardedly neutral things he finally managed to come up with after a very long “Ummm...” on Thursday’s Late Show With Stephen Colbert. For the record, he agrees with Trump’s campaign…

Watch Henry Rollins explain why Bernie Sanders and Lady Gaga are punk

Punk icon Henry Rollins is already a pretty fiery guy, so bringing him on First We Feast’s “Hot Ones” to suck down the hottest wings on the planet was a tricky proposition.

Bernie Sanders solemnly pledges to continue stirring shit in Colbert interview

The Democratic National Convention gets filtered through Bad Lip Reading

When not wildly misinterpreting High School Musical or The Walking Dead, YouTube user Bad Lip Reading spends a lot of time on politics as well. Whether it’s the terrible promos the candidates cut or the many debates they undergo, all are fair game under BLR’s terrible ability to figure out what people are actually…

In his Summer Election Special 2016, Triumph is the satirist we deserve right now

A-

Robert Smigel’s had his hand up inside Triumph The Insult Comic Dog for nearly 20 years now. Sure, one irate t-shirt seller at the Republican National Convention smacks the puppet’s head clean off partway through Triumph’s 2016 Summer Election Special, but Smigel just flaps his naked hand to pursue his line of…

Read This: Sarah Silverman talks about the DNC and how that “ridiculous” thing happened

However, longtime Bernie supporter…

Bernie Sanders dropped speech, briefly went full Larry David at the DNC
