Emmy Rossum, the 27-year-old star of Showtime’s Shameless, which has its fourth season debut tonight (Jan 12), on Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live marveled at the “amazing” and “free health care” in Britain.

Recounting her travails during a recent visit to the nation with nationalized healthcare, she told Kimmel that food poisoning sent her to a hospital. “The hospitals are amazing there,” she exclaimed, citing “free health care” and how “they don’t even ask you for your I.D. You give your name, you give your symptoms, they hook you up to a bunch of fluids. They say just leave when you feel like it. You pay nothing!”

The gay lobby goes into a rage whenever homosexuality and pedophilia are put side by side.

Morrissey, a British pop star of the Eighties with the Smiths, may be gay (he says he's "humasexual," implying he's bisexual). But he'd rather accuse everyone of eating meat of being just like a pedophile. MusicFeeds.com reported it came during  during a recent Q&A on Morrissey fan site called True To You:

Since the left-wing nonsense coming out of Hollywood can be just as obnoxious as anything you’d find on MSNBC, the MRC’s “Best Notable Quotables of 2013” once again includes our annual Barbra Streisand Political IQ Award for Celebrity Vapidity.

Past winners of this prestigious prize include: actress Jessica Lange in 2002 (“I despise him [George W. Bush]. I despise his administration and everything they stand for.”); The View’s Rosie O'Donnell in 2007 (“I just want to say something: 655,000 Iraqi civilians are dead. Who are the terrorists?”); and actor/director Rob Reiner in 2010 (“My fear is that the Tea Party gets a charismatic leader, because all they’re selling is fear and anger and that’s all Hitler sold.”)

This year’s winners and corresponding videos after the jump.

They say tragedy plus time equals comedy. But is 27 years enough time? And what if the product isn’t comedy but another run-of-the-mill pop song about sex?

At the beginning of the song “XO” from her eponymous new album, pop star Beyoncé includes an odd sample: a few seconds of audio from the immediate wake of the space shuttle Challenger disaster. On Jan. 28, 1986, the Challenger exploded in mid air just 73 seconds into its flight, killing seven astronauts. The tragedy played out on live TV. Video after the break.

I'm with Alec Baldwin on punching aggressive paparazzi photographers. I'm with him against the word police. I'm with him on the stalker. I'm with him on using an electronic device on a plane before takeoff. I'm with him on Kim Basinger playing visitation games with their daughter.

What are conservatives doing demanding Baldwin's head for calling some pestilential paparazzi a "c*ck-s*cking little f*g." It is perfectly obvious Baldwin was just cursing the guy out with whatever bad words popped into his head, not engaging in "homophobia" against an actual gay person.

Movie star George Clooney is able moving from Obama Suckup to Hillary Suckup. According to a Marc Malkin report at NBCNews,com, Clooney is repeating after Andrea Mitchell that Hillary is inevitable in the 2016 presidential race.

“I think she'd be very tough to beat now," Clooney declared at an awards show at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. And since Hollywood is bigger on winning than on ethics, the attitude is scandal, schmandal (who’s ever heard of Benghazi?):

Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore has taken to Twitter today to politicize Veterans Day with predictable political rhetoric about Republican-proposed cuts to food stamps affecting veterans, etc. But one tweet that virtually everyone should agree went beyond the pale was an egregiously beyond-the-pale reference to veteran suicides: "Today, as every day, 22 American veterans will commit suicide. Happy Veterans Day." [see screen capture below page break]

Yesterday evening, Mr. Moore felt compelled to share how veterans can see a free screening of a newly-released historical drama at his State Theatre moviehouse in Traverse City, Michigan: "Tomorrow, Veterans Day, all veterans admitted for free at our theater in Traverse City, MI - the State Theatre. Showing '12 Years a Slave'."

Pepsi and pop stars don’t mix, according to one food police group.

The D.C.-based Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) ran a full page “open letter” in Variety, telling pop singer Katy Perry to stop her work with Pepsi, on account of her influencing young fans. CSPI warned Perry that, “Soda companies are using you and other celebrities.” The letter then bashed her for not caring about her fans. ‘‘Drink Pepsi and you can be cool like Katy Perry’ is the takeaway message for your young fans. ‘Live for now’ – and worry about the health consequences later.” The letter ended by urging her not to “exploit that popularity by marketing a product that causes disease in your fans.”

Movie star, comedian, and “Saturday Night Live” alumnus Rob Schnieder announced he was switching to the Republican Party in an interview with Anne-Marie Murrell of the website Politichicks.tv. 

“The state of California is a mess,” Schneider declared, “and the supermajority of Democrats is not working. I’ve been a lifelong Democrat and I have to switch over because it no longer serves the people of this great state. We need to have a new voice. We need to have a new direction, and we need to break the supermajority. It isn’t helping with jobs.”

Graham Nash donated almost $4,000 to Barack Obama in 2008. But you'd never know it from Washington Post music writer Chris Richards, who penned a mouth-breathing valentine to Nash in Tuesday's paper titled "Resonant Rocker." The story begins "While America mulls over a foreign war," and Nash is preparing for a concert and dragging out a 42-year-old hippie peace anthem about "Military Madness."

Richards makes it obvious on Tuesday that he deeply loves hippie musician Graham Nash, who he says sings with an “incredibly handsome instrument” and  “over the decades, his songbook has struck a rare and brilliant balance between the personal and the political, each lending more gravity to the other.” But the name Obama never comes up in the article. With Obama's wars and NSA spying scoops, it becomes especially ridiculous as Richards discusses 2006 concert by Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young that included the song "Let's Impeach the President":

In the era of "warmonger" Republicans in the White House, the Toronto International Film Festival would have been fertile ground for bold, outspoken "dissent" from actors against war in the Middle East. Now with Obama on the brink of missile attacks in Syria, you would expect the same agitation, but this time coupled with a dash of betrayal.

Instead, the Hollywood Reporter found nothing there but an icy pile of "no comments" from more than a dozen celebs, including Susan Sarandon, Josh Brolin, Penn Jillette and Tim Robbins.

While Noel Sheppard noted Miley Cyrus is suffering in her public image, it can be noted that the ladies on “The Talk” on CBS think the former Disney star’s twerking and sexualized videos are “fabulous.” Sharon Osbourne said parents should “lighten up” and “get a sense of humor.”

The show’s host, Julie Chen, the one-time co-anchor of “The Early Show” on CBS and wife of CBS CEO Les Moonves, asked with a straight face: “Since Miley can't stop putting out racy images of herself, and the public can't stop talking about her, is she really a troubled hot mess? Or? Or really a marketing genius?” Mrs. Osbourne spewed:
