Wynonna Judd opts of of SeaWorld appearance; Kid Rock, Alan Jackson to play

At least 11 musical acts have pulled out of a concert series at SeaWorld following CNN’s airing of the documentary “Blackfish,” and singer Wynonna Judd is winning raves from followers for reportedly turning down a lucrative offer to perform.

“Blackfish” tells the story of Tilikum, an orca that killed SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010.

Kid Rock and Alan Jackson are two acts who have chosen not to drop out and are scheduled to play SeaWorld Orlando this weekend. Judd asks to be left out of that battle, however.

You’ve got fail: Fed Obamacare website Alexa ranking says it all

Wow, what a resounding success!

Sigh. The Alexa ranking for healthcare.gov is causing some well-deserved snickering.

Bam! That’s right. As Twitchy readers know, it is being reported that the federal Obamacare website cost in excess of $600 $93.7 million. The utter failure of a website, which is full of massive glitches and continuing errors.

Iowahawk does it again and says it all in one tweet:

Chris Hayes’ question about ‘right-wing’ reaction to Bergdahl shredded

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes got out his straw man today. There’s barely even any straw in this one, but he tried anyway:

Hayes is conveniently leaving a few things out isn’t he?

Yes he is:

. @chrislhayes why don't you start a
acrostic? Your followers will love that more than lying about GOP— Greg Pollowitz (@GPollowitz) June 02, 2014

@chrislhayes Twisted view, CH.
So, NO, not correct. He gave up being "soldier" when he abandoned.
But terrorists aren't "Enemy combatants"— Sandy (@RightGlockMom) June 02, 2014

'Left behind", @chrislhayes?
HE walked away from his post.
HE seeked out the enemy for comfort.
HE violated his oath.
HE'S a traitor….— Danger Saltine (@MarineReconDad) June 02, 2014


In order for Hayes to make his “argument” work he has to pretend not to know the entire story and misrepresent the position of those he disagrees with. Perfect MSNBC “journalist.”
