As we learn more about what Anthony Weiner did to that 16-year-old girl, and as he thinks up funny lines to try on the prison yard to get out of his "beat-in," I thought it would be worthwhile to look back at the early days of his entirely self-inflicted downfall.
I can't stand anti-Semitism, which is just one of the many reasons I'm not on board the Alt-Right White Nationalist Pepe Train to Kekistan. I want nothing to do with those idiots. They can take their #RedPill and shove it where the Sonne scheint nicht.
I've never been able to watch Lawrence O'Donnell for more than a couple of minutes at a time, because he always looks like he's about to burst into a rage. He covers his simmering fury with a snide, faux-calm monotone purr, but I've always assumed that when the little red light on top of the TV camera goes off, so does he. His poor staffers...
As you might recall, when Chick-fil-A came to New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio called for a boycott because he doesn't believe in religious freedom. In response, New Yorkers voted with their bellies and wallets. Like everything else de Blasio does, the boycott was a bad idea that went nowhere.
Other than Hillary Clinton running again in 2020, I can't think of better news for Republicans than the following.
I think rape is such a horrible crime that it's very important to make sure a specific accusation is true before punishing people for it. Whereas our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left think rape is such a horrible crime that any accusation serves as its own proof. We must #BelieveWomen, no matter what. Expressing any doubts or pointing out any inconsistencies in an accuser's story will get you branded a "rape denier." Well, if you want to know where that attitude leads, just look at what's happening to Rolling Stone.
No, folks, not my usual #NotAllMuslims. This time I'm confining my racism and Islamophobia to people with the last name Islam. Only one of those people did what you're about to see, so it doesn't really count. #NotAllIslams.
Speaking as a Hoosier and a fan of processed meats, I was heartbroken when it turned out Jared Fogle is a big piece of garbage. I'm glad he's in jail, but one thing has always bugged me about the whole fiasco: How did Subway IP Inc. not know? This creep got caught because he was blabbing to a reporter about what he was into, so it's not like he was keeping it to himself. He made Subway a lot of money over the years. Did they turn a blind eye to keep it rolling in?
I don't know anything about Dan Helmer, except that he's a Virginia Democrat running for Congress and he's a veteran of the U.S. Army. I respect his service to our country, and I wish him no ill will as he seeks to challenge Republican Barbara Comstock. But this campaign ad he just put out is the most baffling thing I've ever seen, and I've seen mother!.
Jann Wenner is putting Rolling Stone up for sale, and a lot of people are wondering if this is the end of an era. You might not like the magazine because of their UVA rape hoax, or their Jahar Tsarnaev cover, or just the simple realization that it's not 1974 anymore and you don't have to care what they think. But no matter what happens, over the past 50 years Rolling Stone has given us a lot of historical moments to treasure. It's been an important part of American culture since LBJ was president. Although it was tough to narrow down the following list, here are the Top 10 Reasons I'll Miss Rolling Stone Magazine. Drum roll, please... Number 10!
If you watched the Emmys last night, my condolences. I didn't tune in for a bunch of Democrats further alienating America and making themselves even more of a fringe party, because I can get that by turning on any channel of TV, or looking at any other form of media, at any hour of an average day in 2017. Putting Stephen Colbert in a tuxedo to do it for a few hours on a Sunday night in September seems redundant, but let them have their fun. This is all they have left.
ICYMI (In Case You Missed It), the other day a very important thing happened on CNN. No, seriously! A crucial moment in American history occurred on their air. Here's what it looked like:
I don't know if Antifa decided to take the night off, or if they were deterred by the extraordinary security precautions in Berkeley last night. Maybe they just got bored with being violent assholes. But I'm glad Ben Shapiro was able to speak there without any leftist idiots starting a riot.
So this happened...
Clowns have never scared me. All they do is disappoint me. And now they've done it again. If you can't trust a clown, who can you trust?
Here's one from the Department of Redundancy Department: Somebody's making a reality show set in Washington, DC. That place is already a reality show, amirite? [awesome high-fives all around]
If your mantra is "He stinks, but at least she lost," then we are pals. And the New Yorker wants to feed our schadenfreude. They're not letting go of the dream. They're #StillWithHer.
Whenever I'm feeling down, I just remind myself of one important fact: I am not Anthony Weiner. How great is it to not be Anthony Weiner?
Remember when people started freaking out over statues, and President Trump speculated that pretty soon they'd go after statues of the Founding Fathers? And remember how ridiculous you thought it was? Remember how you thought it would never come to that?
