"Three cheers for Kim Kardashian, the Mrs. Potato Head of modern womanhood."
OK, now I’m really confused.
"He is a candidate so dry that flights of wit can become indistinguishable from a sober default setting."
"'’Cannabis can make a difference,’ is kind of what we’re standing for,' a stoked Dicenzo told the station. 'Merry Christmas, Happy Cannamas — would you like some rolling papers?'"
"'I think it’s kind of funny that Republicans preferred fruitcake over Democrats,' Williams said. Among all voters, 38 percent said they thought the alleged treat was good, while 52 percent opted for ‘nah.' But 50 percent of Republicans and 58 percent of seniors liked fruitcake, compared to only 39 percent of Democrats and 27 percent of young voters."
"Its promises are multitude, at least according to its creator, cloud-computing pioneer and "Bulletproof Executive" Dave Asprey, who refined his recipe after trying a tea made with yak-butter in Nepal."
"Cool and Iowa go so well together."
"This season campaign merchandisers have latched onto the Christmas sweater, knowing that if there’s one way to make an ugly sweater truly hideous, it’s by adding a candidate’s logo or image (the Donald Trump sweatshirt is sold out)."
"Since Christmas is such a public holiday — people put out displays and pass out cookies, and they feel compelled to wish people some version of merriment — it is no surprise that reactions to it vary across communities. "
"Only once the moderator's daughter called the studio to beg her father to stop because the song made everyone 'mad' did he finish his one-song marathon, according to a video on Youtube."
"Dwight French said he was jogging from his office to a parking garage Monday when he felt a bump on the back of his head. He turned around and saw an owl fly into the trees and stare at him. As he crossed a street, the owl hit him again and then a third time."
What a hoot!
"Rand Paul, who sells autographed copies of the Constitution, is a libertarian distillation of these concerns. He makes constitutional persnicketiness a high art."
It’s the middle of December—what took them so long?
"At the same time, Mrs. Clinton reminds voters that she is not running for anyone’s third term."
Bunky, there is so much wrong with this line of campaigning it takes my breath away. It was the Clinton administration that brought us NAFTA and the greatly weakened banking regulations that helped set up one of the biggest crashes in history. Clinton disappeared poor people and merrily helped blow up the safety net of “welfare.” And that so-called “robust economy” he likes to credit himself with was largely buoyed by two big one-time phenomena—the rapid building out of Internet infrastructure and Y2K: in some substantial part, a fluke.
"Gone are the days when the most memorable warning beamed to motorists was 'Drive hammered, get nailed.'"
Yikes! I’m turning into a conservative: The old one is best.
Gotta hand it to the PR campaign for this new Star Wars movie, though. It’s everywhere. Obama gave the movie a plug in his last press conference and I even read about it in the local paper—and all I look at is the front page, above the fold (the part you can see through the window in the box).
"Basically, you’d urinate into a series of tubes connected to a pump in your socks, which is activated via walking."
–Thanks to Some Guy in Seattle
"Even if Graham’s exit doesn’t change the contours of the Republican race, it’s a sign that there’s plenty of time for the race to change. As long as Trump is a threat to win, there will be pressure on candidates who are sucking up establishment oxygen to leave the race, and party leaders will be pushed to rally around one candidate. Stay tuned"
…as long ago as, say, the early '70s, low oil prices were good. Now they're bad. What happened? The money changed sides.Oil prices have now crashed through their 2008 low, and worse is likely to come. https://t.co/xHiyZDGZlR pic.twitter.com/cSUWZzexVE— National Journal (@nationaljournal) December 21, 2015
"According to a survey released this month by the company Privacy Analytics, more than two-thirds of health care organizations lack confidence in their ability to protect patient data."
"BOSTON (AP) — A warm start to winter has New Englanders feeling wary…"
The Puritan dread strikes again.
"Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, and Jennifer Palmieri, her communications director, both acknowledged in separate interviews on Sunday that Clinton did not actually have a specific video in mind when she said that ISIS recruiters 'are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.' But both insisted that the gist of Clinton’s comments about the Republican front-runner are accurate."
"They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists."
"'I would very much like to get to a world where if a judge issues an order, companies are able to comply with it,' [FBI Director James Comey] said. 'Either to unlock a device or to provide the communications between terrorists or between drug dealers or kidnappers.'"
Authorize a controversial technique to fight terrorism, next thing you know you’re also using it to fight drug dealers, kidnappers, child pornographers, “eco-terrorists,” income tax cheats…
"Every year on Dec. 24 at 3 p.m., half of Sweden sits down in front of the television for a family viewing of the 1958 Walt Disney Presents Christmas special, 'From All of Us to All of You.' Or as it is known in Sverige, Kalle Anka och hans vänner önskar God Jul: 'Donald Duck and his friends wish you a Merry Christmas.'"
