Featured image Ammo Grrrll calls out DEAD-NAMING! THE WORST THING THERE EVER WAS! She writes: If you live long enough, you will have the chance to hear astonishing things. Often, twice. Ideas cycle around like fashions. What was passe becomes “retro” and comes around again a couple of decades later. Hemlines go up and down. I remember when the fashion industry went to mid-calf and maxi dresses to FORCE fashionistas to purchase »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has already identified: THREE EVENTS I WILL BE MISSING IN 2020 AND BEYOND. She writes: Well, 2020 has started off with a literal BANG with the surprising vaporization of Revered, Austere, Terrorist Psychopath and Poetry Lover, “Casey” Qassem Soleimani. The Democrat politicians, celebrities, and media slugs are slowly working their way through the Five Stages of Grief. So far there has been no funeral stampede by distraught Democrats »

TWIP readers’ addendum

Featured image Arriving too late for inclusion in The Week In Pictures today, these contributions from Power Line readers are also worth a look. The one below comes with this message: “I was inspired to create the following in the wee, high-caffeine hours of this morning after reading some PL pieces on ol’ DRT Soleimani. I thought you and your readers might enjoy it as much as my husband did over breakfast. »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll starts the new year off with a bang in JENNIFER RUBIN: ARROGANT SNOB FOR THE AGES. She writes: Remember when the Khmer Rouge under mass murderer Pol Pot killed everyone in Cambodia with glasses or – if they were lucky – just exiled them from the city to be worked to death on farms? Yeah, that was awesome. People with glasses might have been educated and that was, »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has a tip: MIDWAY! DO NOT MISS IT! She writes: I really do not go to movies in a theater. We are appalled by most of the braindead twits in Hollywood and do not care to help pay for their relentless attacks on everything we value – America, masculine male men, the military, cops, fossil fuels, Christianity, observant Judaism, the rule of law, capitalism, free speech, secure borders, »

The peasants are revolting, cont’d

Featured image This is a big week in the impeachment farce. With House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sitting on the Democrats’ dearly beloved impeachment articles in the hope that she can pressure Senate Majority Mitch McConnell into bending to her will, the farce became farcical in a whole new way over the past two days. An impeachment story or two made it into the Star Tribune’s top 5 list this week. Below is »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll been inspired to undertake THE NO POPPYCOCK TOUR. We fear she may soon find herself in demand as a speechwriter for a prominent Democratic presidential candidate. She writes: Though the behavior of the denizens of the Democrat Klown Kar and the entire wretched Party pretty much defies parody, periodically I like to give it my best shot. You couldn’t possibly make up that A.C. Green said we must »

Don’t bother, they’re here (2)

Featured image House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appears to be in a “support mental health or I’ll kill you” state of mind. She may be in need of help of some kind or, perhaps, an intervention. In the tweeted video below, Pelosi clarifies the strategery behind her decision to sit on the articles of impeachment the Democrats passed last night against President Trump. We took a first pass exploring her “thinking” this morning. »

Impeachment then and now

Featured image To some substantial extent, party politics is a team sport. It occasionally elicits and perhaps requires a tolerance for hypocrisy and double standards. The current impeachment farce presents a sort of case study insofar as some of the key performers persist, yet the song does not remain the same. To illustrate the point, the Free Beacon’s David Rutz has compiled SuperCUTS #728 (video below) and written the accompanying story. The »

The peasants are revolting, cont’d

Featured image Well, yesterday was a big day in the Dems’ impeachment theater. The Star Tribune features it at the top of the center column on its home page this morning. As we approach 7:00 a.m. (Central), however, readers are pursuing other interests. I find the list of the most read and most emailed stories this morning (below) almost as funny as Steve’s week in pictures. Power Line readers will be glad »

The peasants are revolting, cont’d

Featured image The Star Tribune features two impeachment-related stories at the center of its home page this morning (with more posted under each of the two stories), but readers are turning their attention elsewhere. The Star Tribune’s most read and most emailed stories as of 8:45 a.m. (Central) this morning are listed below. My theory here is that laughter is the best medicine. »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll is available at the merchandise table: JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS: What You NEED Going Forward. She writes: I confess. Though it’s supposed to be bad manners, I love to eavesdrop. Since I often travel alone, it is not unusual to find myself in situations where I am just sitting there in a restaurant at my pathetic Table For One, pretending to study the menu. All around me »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has discovered FOUR PEOPLE MORE QUALIFIED FOR THEIR LUCRATIVE NEW JOBS THAN HUNTER BIDEN – altogether a PARODY divided into 4 parts. She writes: #1 Sean Spicer, fresh from what many called an “astonishing” run on Dancing with the Stars, has been tapped to choreograph and be principal dancer for the New York City Ballet Company! “For $80,000 a month, I think I can bring a fresh perspective »

Laughing at Schiff

Featured image Adam Schiff is back in the news in a big way. He’s about as funny as a rubber crutch, but it can’t be wrong to call a timeout to laugh at him. Tom Shillue has mastered the bizarreries of Schiff’s deportment in a manner that brings insight to impersonation. The compilation of Shillue clips below made me laugh out loud. It is the second of two such compilations on YouTube. »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll serves up a timely MEDITATION ON GRATITUDE, 2019. She writes: Yesterday, presumably, most of us ate beyond our fill of the traditional Thanksgiving fare. It is my favorite meal of the year. I particularly love stuffing – Heaven on earth! Whoever started the tradition of eating what is basically wet bread has a place in my heart forever. I tart my stuffing up with Cornbread, Hot Turkey Sausage, »

Fredo in free fall

Featured image In a hilarious footnote to Schiff impeachment theater, CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo conducted an on-air experiment to disprove President Trump’s doubt about the (brief) overheard phone call that somehow resulted in the 40-minute lecture on Ukraine policy by State Department official David Holmes. Video of the CNN segment is embedded in the tweet at the bottom. This, as they say, is CNN (in the age of Trump). The New York »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll reviews the HIGHLIGHT REEL OF THE END OF THE ROAD TRIP! She writes: One time in the Green Room of a Minneapolis comedy club, my colleague Sid came in from a round of golf. He was an excellent, almost-scratch golfer, a very smart guy, and funny comic. He said that a sudden squall had come up on the back 9 and he was almost hit by lightning. He »
