The Week in Pictures: Caucasoid Caucus Edition

Featured image Get your popcorn ready, because today is the Nevada caucuses, which features only a lot of old rich white people in the Democratic field, which is not supposed to happen in this age of intersectional diversity. I think the DNC ought to disqualify the entire field and start over, on the grounds that the field is now the biggest bunch of bumbling buffoons since the borscht belt belly-flopped. But it’s »

The Week in Pictures: Dog Faced Pony Soldier Edition

Featured image To paraphrase Will Rogers, it’s no trouble being a humorist when you have Joe Biden working for you. “Lying dog-faced pony soldier”??? This is going to go down in the annals of all-time political gaffes. It’s the verbal equivalent of Michael Dukakis riding in a tank, or Gary Hartpence sailing on the “Monkey Business,” or George Romney admitting he had been “brainwashed” over Vietnam. (Funny how that problem seems to »

The Week in Pictures: Mega-Trumpy Edition

Featured image The results of our reader survey about adding a regular mid-week TWiP are in and have been tabulated by the Des Moines Register and the Iowa Democratic Party. While adding a mid-week TWiP won the popular vote, it lost both the electoral college and new and “transparent” party allocation rules, so for now we’re going with the status quo, and only doing a mid-week edition on weeks like this. And »

Mid-Week in Pictures: Iowa Meltdown / SOTU / Impeachment Omnibus Special Edition

Featured image The Des Moines Register has not yet signed off on our reader poll of whether we should institute a regular Mid-Week in Pictures, but this is one of those weeks where a special edition, which we have done several times in the past, is fully justified. We’re already overloaded with TWiP material, and by Saturday a lot of it will seem like last year. Has there ever been a 72-hour »

The Week in Pictures: Celebrexit Bonus Edition!

Featured image Congratulations to Britain for its exit from the European Union yesterday. Next up: the United Nations perhaps? Trump should propose it, just to watch the media . . . what? Lose their mind? How can you lose something already lost? Speaking of lost, how’s that whole impeachment thing going? Coronavirus seems to be more popular. Strap in folks and order a double espresso, because we have extra special bonus video »

The Week in Pictures: Early Groundhog Day Edition

Featured image Is impeachment still going on? I know Groundhog Day is still officially nine days off, but I guess Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi came out of their hole in the ground early and saw their shadow: six more weeks of impeachment! To paraphrase Dr. Venkman, impeachment beats having a real private sector job. Also: Are iguanas the new groundhog? What does it mean when an iguana sees its shadow as »

The Week in Pictures: Blowout Impeachment Edition

Featured image House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally got the chicken entrails that she needed to see, and has transmitted the yellowing and brittle articles of impeachment to the Senate, following which the stock market soared even higher, proving yet again that gridlock is the next best thing to constitutional government. Good times! Meanwhile, the Democrats hosted the world’s most boring presidential debate ever. See, this is what happens when you toss out »

The Week in Pictures: Smiting Our Enemies Edition

Featured image The most formidable enemy of the American people suffered a grievous and shocking blow a week ago, and the enemy did not react well to the attack. There was wailing and gnashing of teeth, rending of garments, and fanatical chants of “death to middle America!”  There is great fear and panic about potential retaliation. But the outrageous, dangerous and unstable man who launched this reckless and unprovoked attack—Ricky Gervais—returned safely »

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. »

The Week in Pictures: Fast Start Edition

Featured image Well 2020 is certainly off to a fast start, and liberals are already falling behind. Impeachment? What impeachment? It had already disappeared from the news even before Trump demonstrated that he’s no Barack Obama or Jimmy Carter when it comes to dealing with Iran. It’s almost like Trump is a Texas church-goer or something. Headlines of the week: And finally. . . »

The Year in Pictures: Happy New Year’s Edition

Featured image Happy new year! And have a Trumptastic 2020. It really isn’t possible to do a “greatest hits” highlight reel from the Week in Pictures, so here are one or two from the year, and some previews of the year ahead. Meanwhile, for anyone lounging around at noon Pacific time waiting for the nowadays meaningless college bowl games to start (because the stupid BCS has ruined new year’s day football), I »

The Week in Pictures: Year-End Clearance Edition

Featured image Let us, in the spirit of the long holiday season, celebrate the gifts that keep on giving. (And GIFing, perhaps, too.) Like Saint Greta of Thunberg, who is surely good copy for a few more months until CNN discovers the next Michael Avenatti (though note in the headline section below the related stories of CNN ratings and the closing of the pretentious, precious Newseum). And Nancy Pelosi’s Hole in the »

Christmas Day in Pictures: Special Edition

Featured image Alright, alright, I give in. I wasn’t going to post a special gallery today, but I’ve been bombarded with notes wondering why not. And we’re all about fan service at Power Line these days! So herewith a special Christmas Day gallery: And finally. . . Actually, how about a ghost pic, exposing Santa’s hypocrisy about the whole “naughty and nice” thing. . . »

The Week in Pictures: Sham-Wow-Mockery-Travesty Edition

Featured image Since we learned recently that all you need to be an avant garde artist in good standing these days is a banana and six inches of duct tape, it is fitting that Fielding Mellish’s classic quote from “Bananas” is the perfect description of the impeachment farce this week: “I object, your honor! This trial is a travesty. It’s a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of »

The Week in Pictures: Impeachment Edition

Featured image Impeachment is finally here! Fan service for The Resistance, which is nearly as big a fantasy as a certain movie coming out shortly that features a thinly-disguised equivalent. Except that Obi Wan Trump is the person who actually wields The Force. And his padawan, Boris Johnson. Not even St. Greta of Thunberg, playing the Daisy Ridley role on the nightly network news version, can stand up to Trump. Anyone recall »

The Week in Pictures: Narwhal Tusk Edition

Featured image As we learned last week, the ever resourceful British deployed a narwhal whale tusk to dispatch a terrorist, and now I want one too! But I suspect before long, Michael Bloomberg and other Democrats will be calling for “common sense” narwhal tusk control, and you can’t really blame them, can you? Just imagine what Joe Biden would have done if he’d had one handy in Iowa this week. No doubt »

The Week in Pictures: Tryptophan Hangover Edition

Featured image If you’re still suffering a post-Thanksgiving food coma, take heart. Tryptophan is going to be banned by the FDA—an indirect way of outlawing turkeys, and Thanksgiving itself, since naturally Thanksgiving is a hatefest according to the left. On the other hand, these extreme measures won’t be able to disguise the massive turkeys running the Democratic Party at the moment. Talk about flightless birds!     Headlines of the week: And »
