Animals Are Dumb, But People Are Dumber

I've said all I plan to say for now about our enemies in the Animal Kingdom. I'm not a fan, but at least none of them have ever done anything this stupid.

MSNBC Scales Back Hurricane Katrina Retrospective Because Of Brian Williams’ Huge Lies

1:27 PM 08/28/2015

It all started to fall apart for Brian Williams when somebody noticed that he claimed to have been shot down in Iraq, even though in the physical world he never got shot down in Iraq or anywhere else. Then people started doing some digging, and they found a bunch of other things he just plain made up. And now, it's starting to affect his brand-new home before he even moves in.

In any dispute between two groups of designated victims, Muslims win by default. Muslims vs. gays, Muslims vs. women, Muslims vs. ethnic minorities... even Muslims vs. people in wheelchairs.

If you don't know who Rob Delaney is, don't worry about it. If you're one of the few of us who do, then you know that success hasn't dulled his comedic edge one bit.

The account has been suspended, but there's still a Google cache. I captured some screenshots and posted them back to Twitter. This is evidence and it needs to be preserved.

StemExpress And Planned Parenthood Make Lots Of Money Selling Aborted Babies

11:12 AM 08/26/2015

A month ago, a Los Angeles court put out a temporary restraining order to prevent the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any undercover video from their investigation of a "medical procurement" company called StemExpress. This week that order was lifted, and CMP just put out the video. I don't know about you, but I want to see what StemExpress is so worried about.

Team Hillary Uses A Whole Lot Of Brown Lipstick

1:28 PM 08/25/2015

How did Hillary Clinton allow herself to fall into her current predicament? How did she finally make a mistake so big, even the FBI can't ignore it? Why didn't anybody who cares about her well-being take her aside at any point and say, "Hey, I think this might be a real problem"?

As my longtime readers know, I am not a fan of the panda. I have my reasons, which I may or may not share with the world at some point, but it all boils down to this: Pandas are ungrateful bastards, they're lucky that humans value aesthetics over utility, and each one of them that we permit to live equals another 50 pounds of bamboo per day that could be put to better use making chairs. If I had my way, they'd all be shoveled into a pit.

Hillary Clinton Dances Her Troubles Away

1:01 PM 08/24/2015

Before you watch this, I want to make it clear that I have no problem with Hillary Clinton enjoying herself now and then. If anyone needs to blow off some steam these days, it's her. Running a presidential campaign would be stressful enough even if she wasn't under criminal investigation by the FBI!*

Biden Vs. Trump?

I'm trying to prepare myself, mentally, emotionally, and chemically, for such a matchup. On one hand, our republic has survived worse (probably). On the other hand, even Rome fell.

Bill Burr On Bruce Jenner: ‘He Should’ve Given Us A Chance To Say Goodbye’

12:03 PM 08/21/2015

The following is a perfect example of why Bill Burr is one of my favorite stand-up comedians. He has a way of saying stuff that's so true and so obvious, phrased in such a bluntly perfect way, that sometimes the audience isn't sure whether they should laugh. You can almost hear them thinking:
