Man, what a cool dude

OUR ROCKSTAR PRESIDENT

I wish he’d grope me. And then we can plunge the world into a new Cold War. What glorious fun!

Tim Kaine gives us the Nazi ‘Sieg Heil!’ & Hillary laughs! (P.S. Bernie’s a Jew.)

PSST. Bernie Sanders is a Jew and an atheist.

They really are showing their colors, aren’t they? Hey, it’s fair game ain’t it? Going after Laura Ingraham with the same craziness. Hillary and Kaine obviously aren’t Nazis. Well, Tim isn’t. (By the way, Bernie Sanders is an atheist and a Jew.)

Women Scare Me, Especially the Power Hungry Ones

I’m sure we can all learn something from this, but I really don’t want to delve into it. I ain’t brave enough.

Women scare me, and these two — Hillary and BFF Huma Abedin, wife of former Congressman Carlos Danger — especially so. Powerful women are dangerous and incompetent ones seeking power even more so.

Thankfully, someone at the Daily Mail has done some of the work for me. But it’s still a hecka of a lot of reading. I’m not up for it. I’d rather watch QI.

God Bless America, God Bless MAD Magazine

MAD Magazine is an American institution. Sure, it’s juvenile. But that’s the point, isn’t it. In our politically correct world, it’s one of the few media outlets ready, able and willing to go there, ready to challenge anyone.

I was surprised to see this cover of Bill & Hillary prominently displayed in the children’s section of one of the branch libraries in the suburbs of Seattle.

Librarians can be very protective of their heroes and heroines. Thankfully, no one stuffed this issue in the recycle bin or stashed it behind a stack of Utne Readers, which no one dares to touch.

It’s an old issue, from October 2015, but oh-so-relevant.

Laurel & Adams

John Quincy Adams in 1843

Today, February 23, is the anniversary of two notable men’s deaths, separated by more than 100 years.

The first, in 1848, was John Quincy Adams, sixth president of the United States. He died in Washington, DC, at the age of 80. After his stint as president, a one-termer, Adams returned to the House of Representatives, serving another nine terms as Congressman from Massachusetts.

Deeply bored by retirement and still hoping to be politically engaged, the former President promptly agreed—over his family’s objections—when neighbors asked him to run for Congress from his Massachusetts district. He set two conditions, however: he would never solicit their votes and he would follow his conscience at all times. His election was one of the greatest satisfactions in Adams’s life.

The second man is Stan Laurel, who with his partner Oliver Hardy, entertained folks with comedy. The year was 1965, and Dick Van Dyke spoke at his funeral.

Another item of note for February 23 is the fact that it is the birthday of the government facility known as Guantánamo Bay, which houses some of our terrorist friends. In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt signed an agreement with Cuba to lease the area around the bay to the United States.
