Mediaite covers today’s edition of Morning Joe, in which Mika Brzezinski led a discussion about the dearth of intellectuals in the current conservative movement.

AAAAAAHHHH! Gossip Cop understands that the next few days are about to get real intense, given that “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1” premieres in under 48 hours in theaters nationwide.

The Mary Sue has the full trailer for Pixar’s “Brave,” which premiered today! In a sea of highly anticipated films I had almost forgotten about “Brave,” which is exciting because duh Pixar, and also because it features the studios first female heroine. And she’s awe-sooooome!

On Mogulite: it’s so predictable that I’m amazed it didn’t already happen, but Sean Hannity had Ann Coulter on his show the other night and they both had a hearty laugh about sexual harassment. To watch the clip and read a transcript of the interview, click here.
