While we were out: Natalie Portman, Michael Vick, Elton John, Eric Cantor, the KenCenHonors broadcast

By The Reliable Source

The Reliable Source is on vacation, due to return on Jan. 3 (in print on Jan. 4) -- but here's what else this fine newspaper has to entertain you in our absence.

The Kennedy Center Honors airs its annual broadcast tonight, and critic Hank Stuever finds it a bit chilly and canned. The highlight, as always, is watching the honorees self-consciously watch the show: "What must it be like for these five people to sit through such adulatory excess?...The camera is always returning to them, like a mosquito hoping to extract more blood, and the honorees know it is there." And yes, they edited out Edward Albee and Chris Rock's saucy political commentary.

In other news, Natalie Portman is engaged to and pregnant by her "Black Swan" choreographer, and Alanis Morissette had a baby. Also: Elton John is a new dad, via surrogate. Are Eric Cantor and Orly Taitz friend-friends, or just Facebook friends? Finally, President Obama weighs in on one of the pressing issues of the day, calling the Eagles owner to commend him for giving Michael Vick a second chance.

ELTON JOHN IS EURO TRASH! And anytime people can look upon this nonsense and with a "straight face" PUN INTENDED and say "congrats" there is something SERIOUSLY wrong with the world. Two men mixing their sperm and implanting that into a woman and call themselves DADS? Sick, sick, sick, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD!
