In today’s EOD roundup, I recognize that while I’ve been on some bad online dates (a guy once brought me to the restaurant his ex-girlfriend worked at because he wanted her to see us), they pale in comparison to Mary Kay Beckman’s experience: the 50-year-old’s date, Wade Ridley, broke into her house and tried to kill her. Beckman is now suing Match.com for $10 million.

What is it about Diane Keaton that makes me think she’d be a great drinking buddy?

Political Action Committees can be a tricky business for television pundits. PACs, a fancy term for a group of people who spend more than a thousand bucks in support of a political cause or election, have generally been something of a no-no for people who get to talk on camera. That is, until the rise of the Super PAC, which I’m embarrassed to admit I briefly thought was a made up term when Stephen Colbert said it on last night’s show. See these Super PACs, which first entered the political arena last year, allow a news exemption for people like Colbert (and, as this video shows, Fox News pundits) to avoid the wrath of their parent networks (among other things).
Unfortunately, Colbert didn’t think of this until last night and was sent a scathing letter from Sumner Redstone’s henchmen over at Viacom.
