Watching Nancy Pelosi’s clown show caucus try to formulate how many ways they could hate hate in one resolution reminded me of the Monty Python scene in Life of Brian where Graham Chapman’s character wants to join up with the People’s Front of Judea (or was it the Judean People’s Front?), and is interrogated as to his fitness: “You have to really hate the Romans to join our group! How much do you hate the Romans?” Chapman: “A lot!” “Okay, you’re in.” But the resolution as passed has one seeming omission—among the categories of things House Democrats hate and deplore along with teen acne, mean girls, soccer hooligans, Michael Jackson’s reputation, and the Klan, they forgot to deplore tooth decay. (Also anti-Semitism, but who’s watching?) But that makes perfect sense if you think about it: how could you pass toothless resolutions if we prevent tooth decay? It would practically put a Democratic House out of business. (Grab a large coffee—lots of coffee memes in this week’s edition.)

For the next few weeks, our Dog of the Week and our “empowered feminist finale” will be supplied by the Black Rifle Coffee company—coffee that helps you wake, but won’t make you woke. (That really should be their slogan. Especially if they become a Power Line sponsor as they should.)
And finally. . . a double-feature!
