Why isn’t this a bribe?

leave a comment »

So what if the MSM won’t call it a bribe —  it’s  still a  bribe,  damn it.  Rep. Bobby Rush ought to be in court,  and then in jail.   Of course,  Rush is a Democrat,  and this is Chicago,  one of the most corrupt cities in the world.   It is no coincidence that His Oneness forged his political future in that particular cesspool.

Trump protest fail…

leave a comment »

If you’re going to deliver a thousand yellow dahlias,  the national flower of Mexico,  to Trump’s officer as part of a protest of his policies on illegal immigration,  it’s probably wise to  pre-plan how  you’re going to deal with the revolving door at the entrance.

Real Mona Lisa found?

leave a comment »

Maybe,  but only a few pieces,  literally.   Italian researchers are sure that Florentine Lisa Gherardini sat for the famous Mona Lisa portrait,  but they have been searching for her earthly remains.  They have now discovered a  few fragments  of a skeleton at the now-derelict convent where she last lived and died,  but they have no DNA to test them against,  so they don’t appear to have accomplished anything other than to find remains from the proper time period.

She’s baaack!

You remember Wendy Davis,  the pink-sneakered abortion enthusiast who talked forever on the Texas Senate floor?   The one who accused her gubernatorial opponent Gregg Abbott of exploiting his paralysis for political gain,   and subsequently lost to now-Governor Abbott by 20 points and a million votes?

Well,  she’s back,  still for unlimited abortion rights,  and accusing a male patriarchy of  keeping women down.   Why does she deserve a second act,  when the first one was so damned awful?

Not the best angle…

His Oneness won’t appreciate  this photo  with the Pope, in which our fearful leader appears to have horns.   Have some fun  —  spread it around!

Brocken Spectre…

I had never heard of this particular form of optical illusion,  but  this one is spectacular in addition to being uncommon.
