Is it possible to fight an enemy you can't even bring yourself to name?

There are three sacrosanct facts upon which every reasonable person can agree: 1) Animals are dumb, 2) Artificial Christmas trees are superior in every way to the "real" thing, and 3) Beavers need wood.
Remember when refusing to accept the results of an election was a bad thing?
If you've ever wondered why liberals are so protective of the utterly illiberal religion of Islam, the following news holds a clue: Both groups demand a space that's safe from anybody who doesn't believe the same things they do. Campus, caliphate, whatever.
Hillary Clinton has been dealing with her stunning electoral loss in various soothing ways: Wandering around in the woods, going to the supermarket and waiting for people to recognize her, giving awards to Katy Perry, etc. Y'know, the usual. It hurts to lose, especially when you think it's your turn because you have a vagina. But Hillary is doing about as well as can be expected.
I only know two things about Chip and Joanna Gaines: 1) My mom is obsessed with their HGTV show, and 2) Chip is a big doofus and apparently the luckiest man alive. Home-renovation shows aren't really my thing, but they seem like a nice couple and they do nice things for people. Look up the word "nice" in the dictionary and you'll see a picture of those two, surprising you with how wonderfully they've renovated it.
What do you get when a failed president sits down with a rape-hoaxer? You get some very satisfying schadenfreude, that's what. Absolutely delicious.
It's been a couple of weeks since Keith Olbermann debuted his new
show podcast, The Resistance. Let's check in and see how he's doing, shall we? It's either that or pick the wings off flies.
It seemed so simple: An active shooter on a college campus. Even more proof that America needs even more gun control. Validation. Relief. Take that, teabaggers!
The sooner we dump that scumbag in a potter's field, the better. If he wants to speed up the process, that's great news.
It takes just two magic words to quicken the pulse of any liberal in good standing: "active shooter." Hooray! That's the signal for our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters to politicize other people's fear and pain, before anybody actually knows what's really going on. Like the man said: Never let a crisis go to waste. And if they end up being wrong, so what? The important thing is getting what they want, no matter what it takes.
A lot of ink has been spilled regarding the death of Cuban "President" Fidel Castro. A lot of words have been said. Here are a few of mine...
Toward the end of Election 2016: The Neverending Story, you may recall that Donald Trump started yelling a lot about the election being "rigged." I don't know if he really thought it was rigged (even MAGA-heads have to admit he's a bit of a conspiracy theorist), or if it was just a cynical sour grapes ploy. Either way, I thought it was dumb. And, in retrospect, pointless. It ended up not mattering on election day anyway, just like pretty much everything else I thought would matter.
When Mike Pence went to a showing of Hamilton on Broadway the other night, he was stepping into enemy territory. The cast, led by actor Brandon Dixon, made a point of lecturing him from the stage. They initiated a confrontation. But if they're so worried about Pence being a heartbeat away from the presidency, did they actually do anything about it on Nov. 8?
If you think the past eight years have been tough on you and your family, let's try to keep things in perspective: Have you ever broadcast a live Election Night special when you were absolutely sure you knew who would win, but then you had to keep going when it gradually dawned on you that you were completely wrong?
The 2016 election was the most divisive one since... well, since the last one. A lot of feelings were hurt. A lot of bridges were burned. A lot of hashtags were trending. It's been exhausting for everybody.
In October 2008, Barack Obama was campaigning for president in suburban Toledo, OH when he met a man named Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher. You may have heard about it. Here's what happened.
Last weekend, SNL'S Kate McKinnon brought all of America together to solemnly mourn the political career of Hillary Clinton. Well, all of America except for the hundreds of millions who didn't vote for her. But they don't count, except when it comes to winning elections.
They told us that if Donald Trump was elected president, Americans would be punished for exercising their free speech. What they didn't tell us was that the ones doing all the cracking down would be the losers.
