Wait till the Ted Cruz finds out about this.
"Like previously conjoined twins who had shared a brain before Ben Carson separated them, these two anti-everything, post-lamestream media instigators presented themselves as political doppelgangers, a he/she, yin-yang, sis-boom-bah political marriage of the carnival barker and the bearded lady."
"'What they were interested in were my views on what was going on in the world,' Mrs. Clinton said. 'And whether you’re in health care, or you sell automobiles, or you’re in banking – there’s a lot of interest in getting advice and views about what you think is happening in the world.'"

Fergedaboutit. Ain’t gonna happen.
We’re eating the Spam anyway.
"There may be some hype involved, but this storm is very real and could be very powerful. It may deliver record amounts of snow to the Washington area, though there is still some doubt about how it will affect areas farther north."
In any case we are farther enough north that we are seeing only a 20 percent chance of short snow showers sometime mid Saturday. Nothing to get excited about, although we have the grocery store has sold out of Spam.
"One barn is 10−28 square metres, about the cross-sectional area of a uranium nucleus. The name probably derives from early neutron-deflection experiments, in which the uranium nucleus was described, comparatively, as being 'big as a barn'. Additional units include the microbarn (or ‘outhouse') and the yoctobarn (or ‘shed')."

"The oldest known evidence of warfare — the Jebel Sahaba graveyard, in modern-day northern Sudan — is estimated to date to around 13,000 years ago."
"Mr. Trump as nominee 'would pose a profound threat to the Republican Party,' wrote Peter Wehner, a former adviser to President George W. Bush.'
"'We are truly committed to the magazine,' Kelly Holland, managing director of Penthouse Entertainment, said Tuesday. 'There's gravitas about the print page that you can't replace.'"
No kidding: Gravitas.
"Clinton has seized on a new strategy: clinging as hard as possible to the Obama brand, and casting Sanders as someone who would undo his legacy.…On Wednesday, she published a laudatory essay titled 'What President Obama’s Legacy Means to Me,' in which she swore to 'defend President Obama’s accomplishments and build upon them.' Clinton, who previously attempted to distance herself from her former boss, added that his policies 'shouldn’t be dismissed or taken lightly,' doubling down on her implicit swipe at Sanders."
This kind of thing is why I’m not a Democrat any more.
"And the scene proved once again, though no proof was needed, that Washington, when taken by surprise, is woefully unprepared, not just for a blizzard but for any 'snow event,' and how little it takes for the region to descend into a long night of traffic chaos: more than 1,000 reported fender-benders (unofficial numbers via Waze), six- and seven-hour trips home, jammed arteries and impassable frozen exit ramps."
"Who are these Clintonites who now have the temerity to blame Sanders for the economic hustles they authorized?"
"More consequential was Hillary’s ordering a staffer to send classified talking points for a coming meeting via a non-secure fax machine, stripped of their classification markings. This appears to be a clear violation of Federal law and the sort of thing that is a career-ender, or worse, for normals."
"GoPro director of communications Lara M. Sasken has been operating under the handle @LaraMS since 2008. Given that Twitter handles are not case-sensitive, Sasken effectively owns the rights to the would-be LA Rams presence on the social platform."
The rule is, if a holiday comes before Wednesday in any week, that week’s trash pick-up day on days that follow the holiday (in said week) come a day later thus, for us, Thursday is the Wednesday that week. Which means tomorrow I don’t have to run out to the curb in the 17º early morning—I can wait until Thursday morning, when it will very possibly be a toasty 19º.
Clearly, this works out well. I’m all for it.
" No failed governor or tinfoil-hat wearing radio host or white supremacist making robocalls on his behalf can reflect poorly on his character, perhaps because we suspect he has none."
"Hillary Clinton certainly has a reputation as a true 'politician' -- able to say things without actually saying things. And it appears that's absolutely true when it comes to questions about encryption and backdoors."
(It’s not just about Clinton, it’s about everybody else as well.)
"Meanwhile, the Clintons’ family wealth has grown big-time thanks to firms with significant holdings in places like . . . the Caymans."
"A high-impact snowstorm for the region is nearing inevitability and there is some chance it will be historic, paralyzing travel and disrupting normal routines."
…it’ll be historic if it doesn’t paralyze traffic.
PS: We might get some snow here too, maybe a foot, on Saturday. But look at us: We’re two-thirds through January already. Spring is right around the corner.
"Even though the Clinton team has sought to convey that it has built a national operation, the campaign has invested much of its resources in the Feb. 1 caucuses in Iowa, hoping that a victory there could marginalize Mr. Sanders and set Mrs. Clinton on the path to the nomination."
"Lake Erie may be the warmest and shallowest of North America's Great Lakes, but it's more beast than beauty. The world's 12th largest lake is notoriously stormy and has been known to pound boats, break walls, and beaches with waves reaching 25 feet."

"WASHINGTON — Less than 24 hours after lifting sanctions against Iran for its nuclear program, the Obama administration announced Sunday that it was imposing new sanctions on Iran for violating United Nations resolutions against ballistic missile tests."
