Watch: Comedian Colin Quinn Castigates Political Correctness: ‘A Life Form Came Up to Me’

Comedian Colin Quinn went off on the political correctness culture in his recent Netflix special “Unconstitutional.” In this excerpt, Quinn says it is now impossible to communicate in this political correct world and you have to refer to people as a “life form.” “But even if you mention ethnicity, people feel a little bit – your stomach feels tense,” said Quinn. “You have to speak in the most idealized, pasteurized, homogenized, color-blind…” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

CNBC’s Kudlow Threatens US Senate Run if Blumenthal Supports Iran Deal

On his Saturday WABC radio show “The Larry Kudlow Show,” CNBC’s Larry Kudlow told Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) on Saturday that if Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) votes with President Barack Obama on the Iran Nuclear Deal that he would run against him. “If Sen. Richard Blumenthal votes with Obama on Iran, I’m going to run against him,” he said. “I’m not a political guy. I’m an economist, I’m a broadcaster by profession, but I’m so angry at this issue, among others. Blumenthal’s a big taxer to begin with, he along with Dan Milloy have destroyed the state of Connecticut’s economy because of their tax spending, but this Iranian thing is more important. We’re talking about world security, national security. They’re coming to get us and Iran will finance them.” Roskam then gave Kudlow his support and responded, “Larry, if you’re in, I’m in for you.” (h/t TheHill) Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Ana Navarro GOP Sellout
After the Nicolle Wallace experiment predictably–and disastrously–failed on The View, the show announced this week that another GOP sellout will be its newest contributor. Ana Navarro, who started appearing on mainstream media networks after working on the failed Jon Hunstman campaign by being more than willing to denigrate the Tea Party and conservatives like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and former Alaska Governor Sarah Pain, will be a contributor next season on the show. Wallace, whom the mainstream press started liking after she threw Sarah Palin and other conservatives under the bus after the 2008 election in which she and other consultants like Steve Schmidt showed their incompetence–reportedly turned down the network’s offer to be a contributor after she was unceremoniously axed from the show. Wallace was not a conservative so she would not stick up for conservatives on the show. As a result, she was not compelling and there were
