…(yeah, we know that’s hard to believe) says Reince Priebus (no kidding), the chairman of the RNC. The people who embarrassed them were three almost totally unknown news personalities from the almost totally unknown TV network CNBC. If those three could embarrass the Rs so much, imagine what guys like Vlad Putin, Xi Jinping, Ashram Ghani, or, for that matter, François Hollande could do.
“…when it comes to imported costumes, 'festive articles' — like wigs and beards — enter the country duty free, while costume apparel commands the ‘garment' duty rate of as much as 32 percent."
[Meanwhile just a quick note about priorities:
"Americans take Halloween seriously, spending over $2 billion on costumes alone.”]
Man! Runaway airbags and political debates…but I repeat myself.
Has this turned into a terrific month or what?
Apparently we have a national space weather strategy. I don't know what it is but I bet it's really good.#NWS Director Dr Uccellini talks National Space Weather Strategy and Action Plan @WhitehouseOSTP. #WRN #NWSSWPC pic.twitter.com/Q19Nz6EPYT— NWS (@NWS) October 29, 2015
My own personal weather strategy is avoid it wherever possible.
Yes, we watched the show, and it was swell—a whole corps of excellent jugglers, a disappearing man (looking at you, Jeb!) a big guy able to hold up an even bigger bridge, a Buckeye, and clowns.
Also, a "debate." The losers were CNBC and anybody not named Rubio or Cruz. Well, and the clowns. Nobody knows about the clowns because what happens in clownworld just stays there.
Dude, this might be even more fun than the R’s debate! Ka-boom! We’re ordering pizza.
"It's unclear what the current danger is to the public or how the blimp will be brought back down.
"Raytheon, which produces the aircraft, described the likelihood that the tether would break as 'very small.'"
"It is certainly true that Carson denies that life developed through random, unguided genetic mutations over millions of centuries. It is also true that he believes in literal six-day creationism (though he’s agnostic on the question of the planet’s age) and that he attributes the rise of Darwinian thinking to the influence of “the Adversary” — i.e., Satan. Those are not mainstream views…"
"This past weekend, a chocolate Labrador retriever named "Trigger" accidentally shot an Indiana woman in the foot during during a hunting trip, according to news reports.…
"After getting patched up at area hospitals, she is expected to make a full recovery -- joining a short list of Americans who apparently have been shot by their dogs, according to news reports -- five others since 2011, and ten total since 2004."
Clearly what we need is more dogs with guns.
And almost everybody else. Actually, Kerry is only the third secretary of state to ever use much email, so it’s really just him, Clinton, and Colin Powell.
"In fact, beyond Clinton herself -- and Kerry, who has to abide by a requirement to use departmental email -- we only have three secretaries of state to consider. They are Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright.
"Of those, Powell is the only one who used email very much at all."
"Google and McAfee estimate there are 2,000 cyber-attacks every day around the world, costing the global economy about £300bn ($460bn) a year.
"Yet more than two thirds of firms say they feel inadequately protected against increasingly sophisticated hackers…"
…right. The Bears.
"Bears head coach John Fox refused to call the defensive line depth situation worse than any other position…"
"The chocolate Labrador retriever blasted his 25-year-old owner, Allie Carter, in the foot at point-blank range after she left her shotgun on the ground without the safety on, according to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources."
"LEGO declined to sell him its tiny toy bricks for his upcoming art installation because it was ‘political.'"
"School officials told the News-Press they made the changes because they want to keep students safe."
At least until they get their loans paid off.
…put them all on an island and then vote one off every week. But this is almost as good:
"How can even a Very Cool Candidate™ like Jeb! maintain his favorable estimation in the eyes of The Kids? By donning their customary garb: the hoodie."
…he told the crowd that had been waiting an hour and a half for Katy Perry’s concert for Clinton. “To everyone of them, I wrote back, ‘I think I’ll vote for her.’”
…In March, he said through a spokesman that he has only sent two email messages in his life, back when he was in the White House.
A Clinton aide said the former president… meant people were texting him, not emailing him.
The reason government systems keep getting hacked is, in the end, because the government is run by people like this.
"Trump, waving a hand across his face, also said women might prefer wearing burkas because it obviates the need for make-up."
Also that too.
"Mets fans suffering sticker shock from the $1,600 average resale price of a World Series seat for Citi Field instead pondered plans Saturday to head west for the first two games at Kauffman Stadium."
