THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Jonathan Capehart, a commentator/editorial writer for the Washington Post. Here, from his comments on Friday’s NPR show, 1A, is what Mr. Capehart had to say about the Jussie Smollett incident: “I think that for a lot of African Americans, it sent several signals. One, the noose around the neck is unmistakable. It goes back to segregation, Jim Crow...

MEDICAL ALERT (SORT OF)

If there is a medical product harder to remove from its container than Cipla Ltd.’s Alendronate Sodium Tablet, I am thankful never to have come in contact with it. I understand why they make this kind of stuff child-proof.  But why adult-proof too?

WHAT IF IT WERE THE OTHER POLITICAL PARTY (CONT.)

Here is the latest in our series in which we speculate on what media would do with a story if the political party were reversed. From Yashar Ali’s article at huffingtonpost.com: When Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s longtime communications director Matt House announced he was leaving just after November’s midterm elections, the news was met with widespread bipartisan praise for...

RALPH NORTHAM: HALL OF FAME LUDICROUS (AND SOON TO BE OUT OF A JOB)

The Hall of Fame For Ludicrous Comments By Politicians is already full to overflowing.  But they’ll have to find room to add this one. ralph northam, the current (and, inevitably, very soon to be ex) Governor of Virginia, now claims he is not one of the two students in the picture on his medical school yearbook page – one in blackface and the other wearing a ku klux klan hood. Never...

WHAT A GREAT DAY!!!

Apropos of nothing political… …what a great day we just had!!! Drove into Manhattan – zipped right through the Lincoln Tunnel with no problems at all; Up the west side to Lincoln Center – found parking (I swear) a half block from the Vivian Beaumont Theater; Great seats (fourth row) to see My Fair Lady.  Laura Benanti as Eliza Doolittle, Harry Hadden-Paten as Professor...

THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraph comes to us from the blogger at hotair.com who uses the offensive name “allahpundit”. Looking past the name, he/she does sometimes make a great deal of sense. And his/her analysis of President Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin, now that Trump has withdrawn the USA from the INF nuclear treaty on the grounds that Russia was not in compliance...

MADURO “GOOD RIDDANCE” WATCH

Here is the latest from Venezuela, via this short (too short to excerpt) article at Reuters: A high-ranking Venezuelan air force general said he had disavowed President Nicolas Maduro and now recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim head-of-state, according to a video circulating on Twitter on Saturday. In the video, General Francisco Yanez, a member of the air force’s high command...

THE JUSSIE SMOLLETT HOAX

Why am I now flat-out calling “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s alleged racial/homophobic attack a hoax? Read this excerpt from an otherwise generally sympathetic article at sandrarose.com, then we’ll talk: Police reviewed hundreds of hours of video footage but did not find any evidence of an attack. According to investigators, Smollett was spotted on video footage as he...

ELIZABETH WARREN’S “APOLOGY”

Did you know that Senator Elizabeth Warren has “apologized” for lying about her ancestry? And are you wondering why I would put “apology” in quotation marks? To answer, let me first put up this excerpt from Michael Overall’s article in Thursday’s Tulsa (Oklahoma) World: Reportedly planning to make her presidential bid official this month, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth...

CORY BOOKER: THE NONENTITY WHO WOULD BE PRESIDENT

This week, Senator Cory Booker announced that he was running for Pres….zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz….oh, sorry, I fell asleep during that sentence; let me start again. This week, Senator Cory Booker announced that he was running for President. If you are keeping track, Senator Booker is the 8th Democrat, so far, to either formally announce, or say he/she is forming an “exploratory...

CNN’S “NORTHAM IS A REPUBLICAN” CHYRON

For chyron out loud…. CNN’s coverage of Virginia Governor ralph northam included him apologizing for the overtly racial picture in his medical school yearbook, in which he either was in blackface or dressed as a member of the ku klux klan (two people in the picture, one of them him, we don’t know which is which). Except, take a look at which party CNN first showed northam to be...

IS RALPH NORTHAM ABOUT TO RESIGN?

I have started to write this blog at about 8:40PM eastern time.  To my knowledge, Virginia Governor ralph northam has not yet resigned. However, I would bet money that by 8:40PM tomorrow night – probably sooner – that status will change. Here is a picture of ralph northam’s student page from Eastern Virginia Medical School, which he graduated on his way to becoming a pediatric...

ANOTHER QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s second quote comes to us from an anonymous source, who called the following words to the voicemail of Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), a Jewish House member who has recently proposed legislation condemning anti-Semitism: “Everybody’s anti-Semitic when it comes to talking about you people who have murdered black people, systematically enslaved them. You’re occupying the...

ABOUT THAT TRUMP-INDUCED ECONOMIC COLLAPSE…

“Under any circumstances, putting an irresponsible, ignorant man who takes his advice from all the wrong people in charge of the nation with the world’s most important economy would be very bad news.  What makes it especially bad right now, however, is the fundamentally fragile state much of the world is still in. “Now comes the mother of all adverse effects — and what it...

TWO ABORTION QUOTES FROM VIRGINIA GOVERNOR RALPH NORTHAM

As you may be aware, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, in addition to being a politician, is a pediatric neurologist. I will now put up two quotes from this politician/pediatric neurologist regarding end-of-term – and “post-birth” (that’s not a sarcasm, I mean it) abortion.  Let’s take them one at a time: Quote #1 talks about third trimester abortions in general...
