I'm trying to figure out what's the saddest part about the following news item. Pretty much everything about it, I think.
Jon Ossoff, the Georgia congressional candidate who can't vote for himself, is keeping expectations low.
Bernie Sanders is such a good actor, I'll bet you thought he was actually thrilled to help out Hillary Clinton when she won the Democratic Party's nomination. But guess what? He didn't like her any more than you or I did!
As always, my condolences go out to the victims: Muslims.
I haven't paid much attention to today's special election in Georgia's 6th district, because I don't live there and it's none of my business. But a lot of other people who don't live there, including Hollywood celebrities and Chelsea Handler, have been making a big deal about it. They want everybody to know that Democrat Jon Ossoff is running for Congress and that they support him. A vote for Ossoff is a vote against Trump, apparently. That's why much of his support, if not most of it, is coming from out of state.
When Prince died almost a year ago, I cautioned everybody not to assume he was a drug addict. I've lived with chronic pain, and I know that even momentary relief can be a blessing. So I didn't jump to the conclusion that the man was a junkie.
Handy hint for world travelers: If any government official asks whether you or any member of your family has ever engaged in terrorist activity, always answer "No."
The war between Glenn Beck and Tomi Lahren is heating up, with Beck today filing a countersuit against Lahren. Time to take a side, people!
Animals are dumb, and I don't like them. I'm also skeptical about the magnificent wall that President Trump keeps promising to build. So I'm ambivalent about the prospect of the border wall hurting animals. I doubt the wall is ever going to be built at all, but if it is, I'm fine with it negatively affecting the enemies of all mankind.
She tried to be nice. Nevertheless, he was distant.
If you haven't jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge yet -- and I'm assuming you haven't -- then it's too late. They're tired of fishing you sad sacks outta the drink already.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee just released this. It's not a parody. It's not a late April Fools joke. It's genuinely supposed to get you excited about the Democrats.
The day has finally arrived, Star Wars fans: the first trailer for The Last Jedi is here! And as I always do, I just had to get a reaction video out there as soon as I saw it. So use the Force and get ready to jump to hyperspace, 'cause it's time to talk about the space people with laser swords!
Or so I'm told. A whole lot of people didn't have anything to say about all the bombs we dropped in Afghanistan between 2009-2016, but now they're really concerned that the U.S. dropped a MOAB on some ISIS scumbags.
I figured they would. I should've known it would be this fast. Once these guys smell blood...
Today we learned that Hillary aide and long-suffering Weiner wife Huma Abedin wants $2 million to write her memoirs. It'll give her something to do with her time, now that her husband has ensured that Hillary will never be president.
Dear Democrats: 2020 is coming, sooner than you think. Please listen to this young man and follow his advice.
I don't think I could ever be a police officer. The things those brave men and women have seen and endured in the line of duty. But nothing could prepare even the most cynical, streetwise LEO for something like this.
