Featured image Events this week have somehow prompted Ammo Grrrll to provide A HISTORY LESSON ABOUT CADAVERS. She writes: I am completing this column on Tuesday night, to be sent off early Wednesday morning for editing. So if there has been a major development with the massive military presence in Washington, or if The Big Guy calls the oath-giver a Dog-Faced Pony Soldier, bites Dr. Jill’s finger again, or sniffs a random »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll charts our LONG, LONG LEARNING CURVE. She writes: All over America our corporate overlords race to outdo each other in proclaiming that nobody better even HINT that the election was anything but fair, fun and fabulous. And who am I to disagree? Just last night I dreamed about an election for Homecoming Queen. Somehow we had hundreds more votes than students! Our Principal was fine with it. Also, »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll chronicles being NIBBLED TO DEATH BY DUCKS — A Short History of Pathetic Injuries. She writes: I have a current injury that sticks out like a sore thumb. Because it IS a sore thumb. I was washing my blender after making a wretched “Green” Smoothie recipe that turned an unappealing khaki color when I added the blueberries. Some things taste better than they look. This was not one »

New year’s predictions

Featured image If the reality principle dictates preparation for a so-called Harris-Biden administration this January 20, I think it likely that the evils of 2021 may well exceed those of 2020. I would like modestly to offer my new year’s predictions. • Political betting markets will set the over-under on Biden’s tenure in the Harris-Biden administration at two years. I take the under. • Some prominent Democrat — it might even be »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has second thoughts about FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS – A Happy New Year Break From Politics. She writes: Like many of you, I am but one generation away from the lack of indoor plumbing. My experience with it was being dragged to visit my maternal Grandma Eva’s twin sister who still lived on a farm with an outhouse. I flat-out HATED going there. It was close to a hostage »

“You only Fang twice”

Featured image Filling in for Tucker Carlson last night, Mark Steyn was in rare form as he reviewed the matter of Eric Swalwell’s enmeshment with the Chinese spy. Bearing as it does on China and the Democrats and national security, it’s an important story. We have attended to the story several times, but without the epic mockery of Steyn’s classic style. Via Doug P./Twitchy. My goodness this @MarkSteynOnline riff on @EricSwalwell is »

The news, Hilaria style

Featured image The ladies and gentlemen of Saturday Night Live gave us a preview of the hilarity of Hilaria Baldwin in a November 1990 sketch (video below, courtesy of reader David Lunde). In the sketch NBC News staff accent-uate the positive pronunciation of Spanish names and words while new economics correspondent Jimmy Smits struggles to bear with them. Over in today’s New York Post Andrea Peyser traces the “outing” of Hilaria as »

The hilarity of Hilaria

Featured image My wife Sally was born in Peru and came to the United States to attend the University of Minnesota at the age of 19. She writes English perfectly, but she speaks with a noticeable Spanish accent — an accent almost exactly like Hilaria Baldwin’s. The difference between Sally and Hilaria, however, is that Sally came by her accent honestly. The New York Post’s Maureen Callahan tells some of the rest »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll is not taking Christmas off. In her final column of the year from hell she advises: JUST SAY THANK YOU. She writes: I don’t know how my fellow Jews feel who frequent this site, but I feel embarrassed when our co-religionists make a big deal out of being wished “Merry Christmas.” I know who I am and I do not feel threatened or “marginalized” by an innocent wish »

It’s Fauci Day!

Featured image To you it may be Christmas Eve, but to citizens of Washington, D.C., today is Doctor Anthony S. Fauci Day. Tucker Carlson salutes him: Fauci is the high priest of the Covid cult. A paper mask is his sacred garment. Cable television is his pulpit. The people of Washington bow before Father Fauci. They throw their Patagonia fleeces before him to ease his way as he passes. They consider him »

Blue Hawaii

Featured image When I saw the photo of President and Mrs. Obama on Twitter (below), I wondered if it was the real deal. It seems to cry out for a thought bubble (or two). Have the Obamas defied the public health guidance handed down by Saint Fauci to head off for vacation in Hawaii? And is the Missus as unhappy as she appears with the contribution of her husband in propelling the »

Tim Jong Walz Is Shutting Us Down

Featured image Our friends Justice and Drew created this parody video, to the tune of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” It is aimed at Dim Tim Walz, but could apply equally to many of America’s governors: »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll recommends FIGHTING BACK – WITH RIDICULE, THE TROJAN HORSE. She writes: Frederick Douglass: “Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.” An anti-gun activist I had never heard of before, one Igor Volsky, got bent outta shape back in July because Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue dared to praise »

Laughter Is the Best Medicine

Featured image For now, Ted Cruz gets the last word on the Eric Swalwell fiasco: More than once, I’ve said “screw the Chinese communists.” Little did I know how closely Swalwell was listening. — Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) December 10, 2020 »

Thoughts from the ammo line

Featured image Ammo Grrrll contemplates our dystopian present in A BRAVE NEW WORLD RUN BY WEEPING NINNIES. She writes: So young actress Ellen Page is the latest to become a man! He’s “Elliott” now and his pronouns are – “he/they”? Whatever. Wikipedia has already scrubbed her entry – Ellen Page does not exist and never has. I saw her Ellen picture side by side with her Elliott picture (Ellen in a baseball »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll delivers A POST-THANKSGIVING, POST-ELECTION POST OF RANDOM CHEER. She writes: First, a little somethin’ for the ladies…This is a picture of our Pinal County sheriff, Mark Lamb. Although he said he would not arrest any Thanksgiving dinner miscreants privately hosting more than 10 people, it is rumored that he did receive an anonymous phone message from a female busybody advising that “a certain woman on Misty Lane is »

Biden Takes Lead In Hall of Fame Voting

Featured image Robert Goldberg of The Goldberg Retort headlines: “Biden Takes Early Lead in Baseball Hall of Fame Balloting.” It’s pretty funny: President-elect Joe Biden has vaulted into a surprising early lead in voting for the 2021 candidates for the Baseball Hall of Fame. With about 10 percent of all the ballots in, Biden leads early favorites, including former Yankees Gary Sheffield, Nick Swisher, Roger Clemens, and Andy Pettitte as well as »
