As the search for a motive in the Orlando massacre continues, we're no closer to an answer. Every clue just seems to further muddy the water.
Have you ever listened to a really old person tell you a story, and gradually you realize they're telling you about a movie they once saw and they got it confused with real life?
Pam Bondi is the Attorney General of Florida. And thanks to Anderson Cooper, we now know an important part of her job description that she hasn't been honoring: to be a "vocal champion for gay and lesbian citizens."
On behalf of the people of 2116 America, Mr. President, thanks for helping me with my Obama Administration Time Capsule.
It's been quite a busy week for the Religion of Peace, and it's only Tuesday.

Anything short of grabbing all the guns is simply not good enough. Making a kind gesture to the victims of a mass murder just won't do. Remembering that we have a thing called the United States Constitution is "inaction."
Will Jesse Ventura have to find another widow to torment?
America is reeling after the worst terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11. But why did it happen? A picture is starting to form.
The breaking news this afternoon is that Gawker has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. If Nick Denton wasn't a free-speech martyr before, he damn well is now. It's very disturbing that a media outlet's 1st Amendment rights can be revoked by a washed-up TV wrestler and his vindictive billionaire patron. This is an outrage. Here are just a few of the many, many reasons why nothing good can come of Gawker going straight down the tubes.
As my good friends on the left are always reminding me, there's absolutely nothing wrong with being gay. In fact, it's preferable to being straight. Not only is gay marriage a good idea, but if I refuse to participate in a gay wedding, my livelihood should be threatened. Let the word go out, across the land: Love wins. Submit or be destroyed.
I never really thought of my iPhone as a product of the United States government, because my iPhone works most of the time and I wasn't required by law to buy it. But, as always, Nancy Pelosi knows better.

If you ever wondered why John Kasich actually thought he'd get the GOP nomination long after it was obvious he wouldn't, or why he was always stuffing his face, the following might provide a clue.
A quick recap: Two weeks ago we learned that Katie Couric's anti-gun documentary, Under the Gun, used deceptive editing to make it look like she had stumped gun-rights activists with a tough question. Unfortunately for her, the group was recording the interview as well. Here's what was shown in the film, followed by the full audio of the conversation.
Jesus. Elvis. Donald. They're all the same, really. When you believe in someone strongly enough, you start to see your deity's glorious visage wherever you look. Even while you're on the toilet.
Until a few months ago, I had no idea I was a bigot for expecting men to use the men's room and only the men's room. Thanks to the efforts of Pearl Jam, Ringo Starr, and other important celebrities, I now realize that bathroom choice is the most important issue of our time.
