Once a meathead, always a meathead

The prayer of Donald Trump

From the first reading at mass today (Jeremiah 20: 10-13), a timely passage:

I hear many whispering,
“Terror on every side!
Denounce him! Let’s denounce him!”

All my friends are waiting for me to slip, saying,
“Perhaps he will be deceived;
then we will prevail over him
and take our revenge on him.”
But the Lord is with me like a mighty warrior;
so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail.

They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced;
their dishonor will never be forgotten.
Lord Almighty, you who examine the righteous
and probe the heart and mind,

let me see your vengeance on them,
for to you I have committed my cause.
Sing to the Lord!
Give praise to the Lord!

He rescues the life of the needy
from the hands of the wicked.

Sunday funnies

I used to think these things were silly, but that was before I understood the Tao of the Man Bun...

I hear that it's been pretty hot in Arizona; I think this is why...

Only partly psychic...

I'll have some Belgian waffles and an order of crickets, please.

No way; I've read The Turn of the Screw (H/T to Mrs. Paco).

Art or football? Your call (H/T: Captain Heinrichs)...

And now, an important announcement on mental health (H/T to DoublePlusUndead, which is rapidly becoming the best vantage point from which to observe the collapse of our civilization).

Democrats know enough to stay out of the rain

Which, according to Rachel Maddow, cost them the congressional election in Georgia.

Australian election

No, no, not for the parliament or senate or tribal council, whatever it is they have over there. It's time for the Annual Frightbat Election. Tim Blair looks over the field (or perhaps "herd" is the mot juste).

Go, Canada!

"A sniper with Canada's elite special forces in Iraq has shattered the world record for the longest confirmed kill shot in military history at a staggering distance of 3,450 metres."
