Sunday funnies

No, liberals, they're still not real (H/T: Mrs. Paco).

More classic excuses for being late to work.

Siberia as a tourist destination (sounds like a pretty tough marketing job).

Lucky guy...

Best of breed, Green Retriever class...

Ah, that Lindsey Graham! She sure is a saucy minx!

I wish I had a dollar for every overwrought, lefty blowhard who claimed he or she was going to move to Canada if a Republican is elected president (or, in this case of illiteracy, merely "nominated").

Famous feminist draws the line at the rights of women when they collide with the interests of the family business.

Evidence of nefarious Australian interference in American politics.

"Is Your Bacon Sandwich Oppressing Women?"

Powerline has a great "Week in Pictures".

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe comes to his senses (for now, anyway): "Governor Terry McAuliffe signed a bill today that ensures that anyone with a concealed carry permit issued anywhere in the United States can carry in Virginia, in a stunning reversal of an attempt by Attorney General Merk Herring to sever reciprocity agreements with 25 states."

The patron saint of handguns, Gabriel Possenti.

A list of some particularly gun-friendly states.

Not so Merrie England

I think we're definitely seeing the shift from "decline" to "fall".

President Obama: "Hey, another one! Why do people keep sending me these caps?"

Gee, I dunno, Barry. Do you suppose it could be because of, like, you know, practically everything you've done or said over the last 7 years?

Tweet this, sucka

Professor Bainbridge has some good ideas about striking back at Twitter (H/T: Camp of the Saints).

Way to pick 'em, sport

"An armed robber In Brooklyn Park—a northwestern suburb of Minneapolis–Saint Paul—chose the wrong person to attempt to rob Monday night, and instead of getting away with cash or jewelry, only collected lead."

Hang in there bad guys: help may be on the way.

All kidding aside, folks - arm yourselves while you can.

Putting the "Twit" in "Twitter"

Twitter has been censoring and banning conservatives, and has even set up a "Trust and Safety Council" to protect people from conservative ideas hurtful language. Many right-of-center members are responding by pulling out of Twitter altogether.

I never joined, and am now glad to have spared myself the trouble.

Sanders is just getting, er, warmed up

From Mr. G comes the interesting news that Bernie Sanders is collaring the all-important Satanist demographic.


I didn't know Alabama had a foreign legion! From The Daily Telegraph:"It is not widely known, but Malcolm Turnbull is a Lieutenant-Colonel in the Alabama State Militia." (H/T: Tim Blair).

Sunday funnies

Kanye West's true love (H/T: Clash Daily):

Another thing caused by global warming: depressed pets.

Stool pigeons.

Seeing is not always believing.

Assault with a deadly alligator.

The real reason dinosaurs became extinct...

Something to do until spring comes along.

Bernie Sanders should be saving a fortune on campaign posters

I mean, there are so many old ones around that he can borrow for free. For example, this one, from the early days of the Wobblies, neatly summarizes his economic worldview (click to enlarge):

Update: Will Bernie Sanders be our first woman president?

Friday, February 19, 2016

Yeah, well, that's pretty much a lie, too

When Hillary was asked by CBS interviewer Scott Pelley, "Have you always told the truth?", Hillary answered, "I’ve always tried to. Always. Always."

Happy Feet Friday

Some red hot swing from Glenn Miller, under the somewhat misleading handle, "Introduction to a Waltz".

Definitely popcorn-worthy

Donald Trump vs. Pope Francis.

Update - Amusing headline from the Washington Post: "Loser Pope takes on Donald Trump, suffers massive humiliation, slinks off to Vatican".


Glorified hobo threatens Hillary's firewall.

The AFL-CIO is refusing to endorse either Democratic candidate (a win, sort of, for Bernie).

Hey, if you're feelin' the Bern, don't forget to pick up the right gear. My personal favorite: this "Sandernista" shirt...

Oh, so now it's vitally important that a lame-duck president be allowed to get one of his Supreme Court nominations through. The NYT certainly didn't used to feel that way. Neither did a certain former Democrat senator. In fact, there appear to have been whole mobs of Democrat politicians who've tried to block conservative judicial nominees (H/T: Doug Ross).

I will personally foot the bill if Barry agrees to a one-way, no-return ticket: "Obama to visit Cuba even after mass arrests of dissidents".

Update: The biggest a$$hole in America (outside of various members of our political class) just got pwnd by the Philadelphia Police Dept.

One of America's wisest men makes his pick

Thomas Sowell endorses Ted Cruz.

Wonder if he'll bother to attend the inauguration of the next president

Barry decides to give Justice Scalia's funeral a miss.

Maybe he's going to be busy writing up his nomination of Valerie Jarett as Scalia's replacement. Or - what the hell - maybe he's going to nominate himself, effective next January.

Bernie Sanders

Amazing. A Democrat even less qualified to be president than the current Master of Disaster.

Tuesday, February 16, 2016

We've seen her frothing at the mouth... it was only a matter of time before Hillary actually started barking.

Monday, February 15, 2016

So, apparently, gravitational waves are a thing

If there's some way I can harness the time-compression aspects of this so as to shorten my wait for retirement, sweet. Otherwise, what's the big deal?

Feel good story of the week

"In a stroke of irony, a sniper from the elite British Special Air Service (S.A.S.) took the head off an Islamic State leader who was teaching recruits how to behead prisoners."

Sorry for the light posting, incidentally, but it's been a busy few days, which included the purchase of a semi-automatic, er, egg-beater, and plenty of eggs to go along with it. There is a new sense of urgency in acquiring these basic household items, for reasons that should be obvious.

Antonin Scalia, RIP

The conservative rock of the Supreme Court has died at age 79.

A battle between the repugnant and the execrable

Florida congressman Alan Grayson and Senate minority leader (oooo, how I love writing that!) Harry Reid engage in a war of words. The really funny thing is that these two, of all people, are arguing over "integrity".

Happy Feet Friday

Frances Langford calls on That Old Black Magic.

Inevitability ain't what it used to be

Hillary Clinton, who once probably thought the most difficult thing about her run for the presidency was deciding what color pantsuit to wear at her inauguration, is now locked in a fight for her political life with a septuagenarian socialist who dresses like a 1970s floorwalker at Moscow's GUM department store, while she also tries to stave off four separate federal investigations.

My, how things do change. Not so long ago, Hillary's march to the White House looked like this...

Now, the view from the campaign is looking a lot more like this...

Probably the individual ISIS soldier's worst nightmare

To be captured or killed by the "Sun Ladies".

That's some interesting democracy you've got there, Democrats

Sanders beat Clinton in a landslide in New Hampshire, but walked away with fewer delegates.

Tuesday, February 9, 2016

There's drinking Kool-Aid...

...and then there's bathing in it:
David Brooks: "The Obama administration has been remarkably scandal-free."
Jim Geraghty attempts (futilely, of course) to apply the clue-by-four.

President Trump

A British view: "I want to see President Trump – if only because of who he’d annoy".

H/T: Captain Heinrichs

Another reason to avoid running

It doesn't go very well with doughnut consumption.

There are some descriptive terms which Hillary's fans would like to ban

Tough luck, Clintonistas!

North Korea reportedly puts a satellite in space

That's what you'll hear in the regular news media.

However, if you want the real story, check out this video of the Norks' attempted satellite launch captured by deep cover reporters of the Paco World News Daily staff.

As usual, John Kasich is the last one to figure it out

"I ought to be running in a Democrat primary, I got more Democrats for me".

Sunday funnies

I don't jog. I usually tell people that I tried it once, but I quit because my cigarette kept going out. Now, however, I have a somewhat more credible excuse.

Do you suffer from "resting bitch face"? Don't worry; you're not alone.

Jerk chicken: lost in translation...

Pi day will be here before you know it (March 14th). Here are some pies to commemorate the day.

If you need to brush up on your knowledge of Japan quickly, this may be for you.

The importance of staying alert while fishing

Update: Possibly the world's oldest joke (H/T: Captain Heinrichs).

Release the Kraken

Well-heeled Democrat donor, having watched Clinton's lead over Sanders evaporate like a rain puddle in August, is pushing Plan B - and the B stands for Biden.

Friday, February 5, 2016

Unspeakably irresponsible

Stephen Green on the Obama administration's lax border policy:
I'm long past the ability to suspend my disbelief that the Obama Administration is capable of embarrassment. Instead, I'm forced to conclude that they're wrecking everything they can get away with during his remaining time in office.

Picture a lame duck -- hobbling along with a gallon of gas and a fistful of strike-anywhere matches.

Happy Feet Friday

Willie Mabon lays down some blues.

Thursday, February 4, 2016

What does Hillary really want?

Probably something like this (via Instapundit)...

Elsewhere: if the eyes are truly windows on the soul, we could be in big trouble.

Tuesday, February 2, 2016

Respect your elders, kid

Otherwise, they might kick your a$$: Sicilian bus driver pulverizes immigrant punk.

Note to refugee "yute": Dude! You punched a Sicilian bus driver?!? In Sicily, bus drivers are guys who are considered too savage to work for the Mafia.

Maybe I should move to Washington


Why, there are hundreds of crimes I'm prepared not to commit - for the right price.


Ted Cruz certainly had a big night in Iowa.

Meanwhile, in the Geritol 500, it looks like Hillary just barely crossed the finish line ahead of Bernie.

Monday, February 1, 2016

Hmmm...If this is true, I may have to endorse Trump

"1 in 4 Federal Employees Say They Will Consider Quitting If Trump Elected".

Pure b.s., of course. I've seen federal employees make this kind of threat before - and not just because of ideological purism. Size of office, transfer to a cubical, insufficiently glowing performance appraisal - I've heard people threaten to leave for these reasons, as well as for hidebound political views, but I can't recollect a single person ever actually doing it.

For that special someone on this Valentine's Day... about some time at the range?

Smells like desperation, to me

And smoke. Lots of smoke: "Retreating Clinton Campaign Torches Iowa Town To Slow Advance Of Sanders Volunteers".
