Piers Morgan starts Twitter war amongst soccer fans

http://twitter.com/#!/piersmorgan/status/187253837491474432

A huge twitter debate started almost instantly after Piers Morgan tweeted his thoughts on Messi and Ronaldo being the two best soccer players of all time.

Nobody disputes the greatness of either player, but everyone had an opinion on the matter.

@piersmorgan fair point. But Ronaldo is the athlete, Messi is the footballer. End of debate

@piersmorgan I have to disagree. Pele is the best ever. Then Messi, eusabio and ronaldo

— Matt Earl (@matt_earl1) April 3, 2012

@piersmorgan I'm good with Messi but cannot side with Ronaldo (dislike of ManU).

— Craig Sears (@craigs3) April 3, 2012

Ronaldo is world class. But Messi, well…Messi is simply Messi #fb

@piersmorgan Messi yes. Zizou would be before Ronaldo for me, purely for his technical ability.

— Steven Yakub (@StevenYak) April 3, 2012

@piersmorgan Bullshit! Leo Messi is much better than Ronaldo #Snm

— Jay (@jayster2011) April 3, 2012

if you put messi in the real madrid team he wouldnt score as many goals but if u put ronaldo in barca team hed score. #midfieldmakesmessi

@piersmorgan defo messi best player ever lived and ronaldo not to far behind probably put best bastard them at the mo though

— paul williams (@paulwilliams78) April 3, 2012

@piersmorgan your right and also if u put Messi in stoke he would do rubbish. On the other hand Ronaldo would probably win them the league

— savva (@sav_the_yiac) April 3, 2012

@piersmorgan Messi maybe, but can't agree with Ronaldo. I'm not nostalgic, but I still believe that Pele was a timeless talent.

— John Egan (@Johnpaulboy121) April 3, 2012

@piersmorgan still think ronaldo is better willing to challenge himself in different leagues messi won't test himself elsewhere

‘The riot has begun’: UConn students celebrate in defiance of ‘Derek the RA’

http://twitter.com/#!/INiiCIK/status/453379220333690880

The University of Connecticut Huskies won the national title Monday night, and students celebrated by, well, being enthusiastic.

Perhaps no one was dreading the festivities more than “Derek the RA,” whose note to students went viral, sending his name trending nationally.

Ann Coulter mocks National Coming Out Day; Civility police respond with vitriol, rape wishes

http://twitter.com/#!/AnnCoulter/status/258068513506328576

We don’t think disowning gay kids is punchline material, and we can understand why many Twitter users think this joke is rather mean-spirited. On the other hand, members of the Tolerance Brigade come across as hypocritical when they publish tweets like these:

I wish rape upon you! RT@anncoulter: Last Thursday was national “coming out” day.This Monday is national “disown your son” day.

— Justin Root (@JustinWRoot) October 16, 2012

“@anncoulter: Last Thursday was national “coming out” day. This Monday is national “disown your son” day.” FUCK YOU, YOU NASTY CUNT.

— Sam Beckett (@SebOrSam) October 16, 2012

Ann Coulter, I don’t hope you kill yourself, but I hope something so tragic happens, you really consider it.Buy-the-Clorox consider it.

— Eric Cunningham (@EricCunningham) October 16, 2012

That’s so funny! Because Tuesday is National ”@anncoulter Deserves to be Gang Raped By Twelve Black Guys” Day! Bend over, twat!

— R.J. Aguiar (@rj4gui4r) October 16, 2012

If you’re hoping for your political opponent to commit suicide or be raped, you’ve got a problem. (Especially if you publish those thoughts for the entire world to see.) Perhaps more liberals should heed this advice:

The best thing anyone can do about Ann Coulter is ignore her.

Longoria to chair inaugural committee; Creepy Jim Messina to chair parade

http://twitter.com/#!/IsaacDovere/status/276782644442828800

Are you ready for the creepiest inaugural parade evah? Obama campaign manager Jim Messina has been tapped to serve as chairman. We’re pretty sure he delivered his signature spastic air-punch when he got the news.

twitpic.com/bbre91 RT @isaacdovere: Eva Longoria will co-chair the inauguration, Jim Messina will be chair of the inaugural parade

— Dorsey Shaw (@dorseyshaw) December 6, 2012

Messina SMASH.  on Twitpic

Messina SMASH!

But that’s not the only brilliant pick for the inaugural team. Vulgar tweeter and conservative-bashing femme-a-gogue Eva Longoria will co-chair the inaugural committee.

Excited and honored to co-chair the @obamainaugural in 2013! Will I see you in DC? #inaug2013

— Eva Longoria (@EvaLongoria) December 6, 2012

Is she just delusional? Sadly, no. It’s been confirmed by the official @ObamaInaugural Twitter account.

RT @evalongoria: Excited and honored to co-chair the @obamainaugural in 2013! Will I see you in DC? #inaug2013

— Obama Inauguration (@obamainaugural) December 6, 2012

And if that’s not enough, lying liar Stephanie Cutter will chair the board of directors.

Obama Campaign Manager Jim Messina named Chair of Inaugural Parade, Deputy Campaign Mgr Stephanie Cutter named Chair, Inaugural Bd of Dirs.

Inauguration Day should be truly Historic™.

Team USA shooter Amanda Furrer throws Corey Cogdell under the bus? Updated

http://twitter.com/#!/Amanda_Furrer/status/230976637313888257

Furrer posted that tweet just after anti-hunting activists began their vicious attacks on Corey Cogdell — a story brought to you exclusively by Twitchy.

Since the controversy began, Furrer has not tweeted a single word in support of Cogdell.

Fortunately, many Americans have stepped up to the plate to voice their support for a U.S. Olympic shooter facing unhinged death wishes.

Previous Twitchy coverage:

Corey Cogdell receives outpouring of support after being threatened by anti-hunting mob

Anti-hunting mob urges Team USA shooter Corey Cogdell to shoot herself, advocates violence against family

***

Update:  Furrer has deleted the tweet featured at the top of this post and stated unequivocally that she stands by Cogdell:

I am in full support of my teammates and their decisions to participate in the hunting sports. Prior comments on hunting from me were in…

— Amanda Furrer (@Amanda_Furrer) August 8, 2012

…response to threatening messages I received from people ignorant to facts. I am very close with my teammates and stand by them.

— Amanda Furrer (@Amanda_Furrer) August 8, 2012

It sounds like Furrer may have received threatening messages from anti-hunting activists. We have asked her for clarification and will update if/when we hear back.

Confirmed:

@TwitchyTeam that is correct. My previous statement was misconstrued and taken out of context of the situation I was put in.

— Amanda Furrer (@Amanda_Furrer) August 8, 2012

Update: Gold medal winner Kim Rhode, who was sharing a root beer with Cogdell this afternoon, retweeted Furrer’s supportive tweets.

‘White Obama’: Rob Ford’s brother compares Toronto mayor to US president

http://twitter.com/#!/Daniel_Rosen/status/402458464620126209

As if the Obamacare launch debacle wasn’t bad enough, Doug Ford, the brother of Rob Ford, added insult to injury by comparing the troubled Toronto mayor to Barack Obama.

http://twitter.com/#!/CathyReisenwitz/status/402461320442023936

That’s an unprecedented attack on Obama, snarked one tweeter:

http://twitter.com/#!/fossilfuels/status/402453730542366722

Doug Ford said Canadian headlines referred to his brother as the “white Obama,” which is not true, according to the Toronto Star.

This Tiny Horse May Be Small In Size, But He’s Enormously Cute.

This tiny horse in England might be the smallest in the world, but what he lacks in size he more than makes up for in total adorableness.

His name is Acer and he stands at only 22 inches tall. Most horses born with dwarfism, especially in cases as extreme as Acer, are sadly put down due to the health issues that are usually present… But his owner Maureen O’Sullivan wouldn’t let that happen to this little guy.

Acer lives with Maureen at her miniature horse farm in Essex.

Barcroft

His best friend is the family dog, Demon, who is a tad taller than him.

Barcroft

He has his regular-sized stable with one modification: an Acer-sized stable door. Maureen wanted to make sure he could look out into the barn like the rest of the horses.

But unlike the other horses, Acer welcome in the house.

Barcroft

Maureen says he loves to watch TV, “He just stands there staring at it.”

They have only had to deal with one health issue in his three years so far.

Barcroft

His hooves require special treatment which has cost Maureen quite a bit of money.

But keeping this cutie healthy is worth every penny.

Barcroft

(via Mirror.)

Though she said he hasn’t done anything “naughty” while in the house, they do make sure to keep a close eye on him. You can find more information and adorable pictures of Acer on Maureen’s website.
