Kangaroos Are Dangerous

2:38 PM 11/09/2015

As my longtime readers know, there are very few animals I like: Mickey Mouse. Tony the Tiger. The Care Bears. Scooby Doo. Batman. And... um... Nope, that's about it. Those are the only animals we need to keep around.

My Five Favorite Moments From Donald Trump’s Episode Of SNL

10:43 AM 11/09/2015

Okay, look, I'm not going to pretend I'm a fan of Donald Trump. I think he's a ridiculous crybaby, I dislike him as a person, and he'd do a terrible job as President of the United States. (Almost as terrible as Hillary Clinton, but even he's not that bad.) After this weekend, though, I have to admit... he won me over a little!

Cops Warn Woman Not To Walk In Traffic, So She Accuses Them Of Racism

It was a perfect storm of progressive outrage: An African-American woman, the dean of a journalism school, was cruelly and needlessly accosted by a couple of racist Texas cops, just because she was walking down the street in her own neighborhood. They didn't like a black woman walking around where she wasn't supposed to be, huh? She didn't know her place, is that it? Clearly, we still live in Emmett Till's America.
