Isn't disarming Elmer Fudd like making a sex essentialist use the wrong toilet

I can’t breathe a long sigh when the two exemplars for bad firearms safety, Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam are revised like the cops in E.T. relegated to brandishing radios. Like Trump at St John’s church, some props don’t work. All that’s left is Porky Pig’s speech disability. “Animators working on the new series have ensured that…

WTF is wrong with the White House press corps?

On the one hand, this is a bizarre, inexplicable story.  On the other hand, it is probably the most revealing story about the failure and obsequiousness of the White House press.

It sounds like one of his…

Dersh gets it wrong

Not to be confused with Leeroy Jenkins, and with much arm-waving Alan Dershowitz affirmed that the House has charged IMPOTUS* with impeachable offenses, despite declarations to the contrary. He also tried to apply a critique that trashes the recently revealed Bolton book in his speech to the Senate. x Dershowitz asserts that nothing in Bolton's testimony…

'All is well!' tweets the guy who's nearly always wrong

Jesus Christ, this asshole. All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning. — Donald…
