Featured image Ammo Grrrll is moving on from GEEZER FORENSICS to YEARBOOK FORENSICS. She writes: Last week we had a lively discussion of Geezer Forensics, with many valuable contributions from commenters about their own encounters of the geezer kind with solid, unyielding pieces of furniture, sliding glass doors, boiling teacups, and the like. Today, following the pathetic and ludicrous saga of Governor Coonhound (D) of Virginia, we will discuss Yearbook Forensics. Of »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll provides a short course in GEEZER FORENSICS. She writes: Sometimes, in the course of human events, your person of late, late middle age will sustain a strange injury which she has no idea how it occurred. Let’s say that, despite trying to limit her coffee intake to under 12 cups a day, for some unknown reason, she still has trouble making it through an entire night without getting »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll had me at her heading: GIRLS (OF BOTH SEXES) GONE VILE! She writes: As it happened, last week Mr. AG and a friend and I were watching a rerun of Blue Bloods, a series we quite enjoy. There was a scene set in one of those trendy, incredibly loud, incredibly crowded dance clubs that – to me – looks like the 10th Circle of Hell. (I think Dante »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll announces GOOD ORAL HYGIENE & OTHER GOOD NEWS. She writes: In an amazing coincidence, I was having MY teeth cleaned the same week as Beto O’Rourke! Dental Mania! I did not think to livestream the event for my tens of fans. My hygienist is Laura, not Diana, like Beto’s. And I knew you’d want to know that. By the way, my actual real middle name is Marie, so »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll welcomes the new year in HERE COMES 2019! She writes: I definitely recall mentioning that 2018 seemed weird because it was my house number in Maplewood, MN for nigh unto 40 years. I have no such association for 2019, although I expect it to be a doozy. God only knows how many useless egomaniacal retreads will queue up to challenge President Trump in the Republican primary and the »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll begins the new year with thoughts on a few dead things in “I’LL TAKE ‘THINGS THAT ARE DEAD’ FOR $200, ALEX.” She writes: STARTING WITH MY BATTERY So, last week we talked about my Email suddenly deciding it had never heard of me. Then, while trying to be part of the Podcast with The Big Boys, my connection failed. But wait, there’s more! At the very time that »

Rather marginal

Featured image I am afraid that I am inextricably linked to Dan Rather. He will appear in my obituary if I am accorded one, although I think I may have done a few more significant things in my life than help expose the fraud he aided and abetted in the 2004 presidential election. The true history of that fraud has already receded into the mists of ancient history. Although Rather is still »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has no desire to be THROWN OFF THE GRID. She writes: If you have ever had the highly unpleasant experience of having your car towed — when 300 yards down the block there was a tiny paper sign in 6 pt. type informing people that cars would be towed after 4:00 p.m. — you know that for just a minute your upset brain thinks, “Ah, that is inconvenient. »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll remembers THE PLAYHOUSE. She writes: Sometime in 1924, my maternal grandfather came home from a neighbor’s farm hauling what he called “a chicken coop for my three little chicks.” When his three small daughters, who were 3, 4, and 6 came running outside, they found a beautiful little white playhouse, about 5 or 6 feet square, sturdily built from wood with a steeped shingled roof and latching front »

“As Malcolm Nance reveals…”

Featured image Tucker Carlson delivered a hilarious monologue featuring MSNBC’s Brian Williams and his guest Malcolm Nance last night. RealClearPolitics hast posted the transcript here. Tucker brilliantly exposes the insane prattle with which we have been inundated by the Democrats and their media adjunct over the past two years. It’s hard to laugh about it, but Tucker succeeds with mockery fit for the occasion. “As Malcolm Nance reveals,” “as Malcolm Nance explains” »

Featured image In the interest of humor Ammo Grrrll identifies THE WORST SONG EVER WRITTEN. She writes: It is time for another of my patented Break From Politics columns. Scott has graced us with beautiful and interesting musical offerings and commentary for many years, in an effort to preserve his – and our – sanity. Today, however, we will be talking about a very, very stupid song. And not even a recent »

Featured image In his terrific online WSJ Best of the Web column “Google visits the Resistance Factory” (accessible via Outline here), James Freeman homes in on a candid camera moment in which prospective House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler interrogated Google CEO Sundar Pichai at the House Judiciary Committee hearing earlier this week. Nadler sought to keep Democrats’ hope alive — hope in the Russia collusion hoax, or some version thereof, »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll dubs them REPULSI-CANS. She writes: I really want to know where I can go to get a gig as a pretend Democrat attacking other Democrats on television? Would that be a dream job, or what? There was chipmunk-cheeked Ana Navarro, on election night 2016, who was terribly excited about the pending, in-the-bag defeat of Donald J. Trump, as “sweet sweet justice” when Hispanics would get to deal him »

SpongeBob survives

Featured image Stephen Hillenburg died at the age of 57 this past Monday at his southern California home of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). James Freeman (WSJ’s Best of the Web) and J.J. McCullough (NR) paid tribute to Hillenburg as the creator of the immortal cartoon character SpongeBob SquarePants. Neil Genzlinger’s New York Times obituary also salutes Hillenburg’s work. Two of my three daughters were fans of SpongeBob and the Nickelodeon series in »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll recalls and reflects: SKOOL DAZE or THE MORE THINGS CHANGE. She writes: Columnist, historian, farmer, intellectual giant, Professor Victor Davis Hanson never fails to deliver a brilliant take on whatever he weighs in on. One of his outstanding traits as an essayist is his clarity. But, sometimes he lapses into Greek, Latin, Swahili or Sanskrit without providing a translation. I don’t even think he is showing off; he »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has a vision of our BRAVE NEW WORLD. She writes: Well, L’il Jimmy Accost-Her has prevailed in litigating his inalienable right to wrestle young women for the mic. (Geez, isn’t that pathetically phallic?) The Democrats did NOT prevail in stealing elections in Florida or Georgia. And that’s all the politics I can stand today. In happy news, my book is selling well. Click on the cute little book »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll wonders: WHAT DO THE NAKED LADIES SAY? She writes: I know whenever I wonder what side of an issue to come down on, the first place I go for guidance is to naked people. Well, okay, full disclosure (as opposed to full dis-clothes-ure), I am but a poor clueless married white woman leeching off my husband, so the FIRST place I go is to ask my husband to »
