    1. Hello.

      Which one’s Ed again?

      1. I thought you said the voice of Mr. Ed had died.

        1. Some letters in the middle fell off, it seems. He meant to say Mr. Lou ReeD

          He’s mistaken though, because we’d have certainly heard about it if that were true.

          1. Don’t ever scare me like that.

    2. Han dies.

      1. If only he had shot Gredo first.

    3. This is a very cheap first response. What did you rush out of the bathroom to post this?

      1. Agreed. I think Citizen X wins today.

        1. My computer finished installing updates and restarted just in time!

      2. The classics are never cheap.

        1. Winston’s mom, on the other hand…

      3. Which bathroom!?!?!

    4. No, dear, this is the dream. You’re still in the cell.

        1. Rosebud?

            1. Now I am lost, JW.

              This Saint Eligius?

              1. Bruce Willis is dead the whole movie

    5. Everyone died in the plane crash and the island is all a dream. The hot chick goes on to do shampoo commercials.

      1. Soave claims that’s not true. He did his thesis on it I think.

      2. The chick in the soap commercials goes on to do porn?

      3. Yunjin Kim did shampoo commercials?

        1. I’ll let it slide. Just this once.

          1. But, you said not to use too much lube.

            1. If Yunjin Kim had a dick, I’d let her fuck me.

      4. Thought she turned into an elf.

    6. They quit fighting because their mothers had the same name.

    7. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE.

      1. It turned out she was ghost for the last season and a half.

    8. Man, GOT is yet another one of those wildly popular shows that I just can’t seem to give a shit about.

      1. I’m with you. Drying paint sounds more interesting.

        1. Oh, come on. Violence, tits, intrigue. If it doesn’t sound like something you want to get into, I can quite understand. But there’s plenty to catch one’s interest.

          1. Except I can find all those things in other shows that don’t involve absurd BS like dragons and magic and Renaissance Fair weirdos.

            1. There are a LOT of tits at Renaissance Fairs. And licentiousness. And mead!

              1. You can find tits and alcohol in plenty of settings. Only Renaissance Fairs feature 40-year-old virgins wandering around with plastic armor theeing and thouing one another.

                1. I think you’ve misunderstood this sub-culture. They’re all having a surprising amount of sex with each other…often at the same time, and most of the ones that are nerdy enough to dress up aren’t in plastic.

                  1. So they’re just medieval bronies?

                    1. That’s just silly. Plenty of bronies are wholesome middle-aged men who enjoy a show targeted at prepubescent girls and occasionally engage in creepy fetishy group sex.

                      RenFair people are not wholesome and enjoy adult things like penetrating one another with their lances.

            2. Personally I’d rather watch that kind of far fetched BS than more realistic far fetched BS that you get on other shows. But if you aren’t into fantasy fiction, then no, you don’t want to see it.

              1. ^This^

                I’d rather watch a million dragons than one fucking “forensics” team.

                1. (looks smug) I like them both.

      2. My field is barren as well, Juice.

      3. One notices what kind of crap you do like to watch.

        1. Goddamit. One notices that you refuse to say what kind of crap you do like to watch.

    9. It wasn’t a chicken. It was a baby!!!!!!!!

      1. Regardless, the egg was there first.

  1. The presumptive Republican nominee also suggested he might run for governor of New Mexico.

    Simultaneously with the presidency? This executive is gonna be YUGE!

    1. Trump for president!
      Trump for Senate!
      Trump for House!
      Trump for governor!
      Trump for mayor!

      We will not rest until every elected position in the United States has a Donald Trump in it!

  2. Eleven states are joining North Caolina and suing the Obama administration over federal transgender bathroom guidelines.

    But it’s explicitly spelled out in Title IX that transgender persons get to use a certain water closet.

    1. Is this a “wrong side of history” issue or a “settled science” issue?

    2. They get to shower with the hottest person of the sex that they identify with.

    3. North Caolina

      He got the phonetic spelling correct on that, anyway.

      1. Between this and Rico’s shitshow, whoever is doing the proofreading today should be fired.

        1. Gillespie doesn’t care about proofreading, so why should any of his underlings?

        2. I’m pretty sure they just never do proofreading on the blog posts.

          1. That’s how they show they care.

          2. And god knows there’s nothing like spell check

  3. You think Trump has balls…

    in Portland, the man experienced “significant testicle and scrotal pain and swelling, his scrotum at one point swelling to 80 pounds and over 48” in diameter,

    1. Did he bounce around town on his testicles?

      1. Like a Hoppity Horse.

      2. +1 Buffalo Soldier.

    2. Whoa. Even G. Gordon Liddy is impressed.

  4. “Donald Trump responded to a speech by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) criticizing his business record and populist rhetoric by calling her Pocahontas.”

    HE SAYS WHAT WE ALL THINK!

    1. It’s getting harder to not like this guy.

      1. That made me happy though.

        It should always be thrown in her face. She profits off foreclosed homes and goes after him for ‘profits’?

        Fuck. Her.

        1. OT: Phil Kessel, huh. How many teams died to get rid of him? Sid the kid looks strong again too. Malkin is probably the most under appreciated player over the past decade. And I’m a Wings fan.

          1. Crosby’s goal was vintage. All power and skill.

            Joe Thornton, Brent Burns, Joe Pavelski and Nikita Kucherov are all having monster playoffs as well.

            1. Here is a dissection of that heroic play.

              1. It was amazing – and Hedman is, what, 6’5′?

                Crosby has abnormal take off power.

          2. No stamkos. If the Penguins win, the victory will be tainted.

      2. Trump the Insult President will be great entertainment.

        1. They should screw a go-pro into his forehead.

    2. That’s just awesome. And precisely what she deserves, IMO.

    3. I wouldn’t poker-her-highness

    4. Trump screws it up again.

      It is Fauxcahontas or Liawatha or maybe Sacajebullshit.

      But Pocahontas is just gonna get him labeled as racist.

      How will he survive that?

      1. White Squaw speak with forked tongue.

        1. Wait, was she White Indian????

          1. I wish to subscribe to this newsletter, and any others that you might have.

          2. She is White Buffalo Woman.

        2. So, is she a White Indian?

          1. Beat you by two minutes. SUCK IT!

            1. Mazel tov.

      2. How will he survive that?

        Are you serious? Where have you been the last few months?

        1. Your meter needs calibratin’.

          Is this your first day here?

          1. Since 2007, so not quite. It’s sometimes difficult to measure sarcasm around here. Is it your first day?

      3. His face will be so red

        1. Dark orange.

    5. Donald needs to know that “Liawatha” has more bite.

      1. He’s already calling everybody else a liar, so “Fauxcahontas” would be the better one in this case.

        1. But most Trump supporters aren’t familiar with the word ‘faux’.

          It’s awfully highfalutin, you know

        2. I’m not gonna look for video or listen to him, but are we sure he … didn’t just say “Fauxahontas” and get misquoted by someone unfamiliar with the trope?

          (Hell, as much as I despise the man – as a politician – I’m willing to believe he was trying for it and just had a slip of the tongue.

          Because calling her “Pocahontas” in any other context makes exactly no sense; I’m used to Trump being stupid or wrong, but I haven’t seen a lot of just utter non-sequiturs from him.)

          1. Here you are, Sig (beginning at the 1:07 mark).

        3. That looks good in print, but doesn’t come across very clearly when spoken.

          1. It’s not like Trump has an aversion to insulting people on Twitter.

      2. ‘Sitting Bull’ is descriptive.

        1. “Sitting Bullshit” was on that top 10 list that was going around… it was one of my favorites.

        2. Please, let’s not insult Sitting Bull’s memory. How about Cornstalk?

    6. I’m gonna vote for this guy. I can’t wait to see what he calls Putin.

      1. Lizzy One-Drop should be charging Trump rent the way he’s living in her head.

    7. Fauxcahontas

  5. A State Department inspector general’s report finds that Hillary Clinton violated federal laws and guidelines on email use while serving as secretary of state and did not do the bare minimum to try to comply within the law.

    Once again, the internet comes back to bite a Clinton in the ass. (Not really.)

    1. The real story here is that Guccifer inked his plea bargain and immunity deal today. Now he’s free to talk about how easy it was to hack into her email server.

      1. Excellent.

        *steeples fingers, releases hounds*

      2. Is Guccifer a real name?

        Sounds like a name for when the devil goes into the Italian handbag business.

        1. His real name can be found on the intertoobz

        2. Show some respect. He was named after Sir Edmund Guccifer.

          1. +29,029

            1. +1 Titannica

              1. Fuck, that was meant for the Puscifer comment below.

        3. Puscifer is though:

          https://puscifer.com/

        4. Sounds like a name for when the devil goes into the Italian handbag business.

          Think it got cancelled after like two episodes.

        5. If it’s not, it damn well should be.

        6. That was funny.

        7. It’s his hacker handle. He days he combined Gucci and Lucifer.

      3. Plus he never flushed after using her server.

        1. Just like Jimmy McGill

      4. Unless his deal included keeping his mouth shut.

        1. Lemme see if I can find the link, but I believe the deal was taken expressly for the purpose of his cooperation with the feds. They’re keeping him in VA for that reason.

          brb

        2. Heeeeeere we are.

          …. the plea deal comes as the FBI is moving to conclude its investigation into Clinton’s exclusive use of a private server for government business while secretary of state. Lazar, who was facing more than 20 years in prison and cut what amounted to a very favorable deal, is currently being held in a Virginia jail ? which means he will be available to the FBI and U.S. attorney.

          As outlined in the plea agreement which Fox News has reviewed, Lazar has agreed to extensive cooperation with the U.S. government. According to the court filing, Lazar has agreed to be “reasonably available for debriefing and pre-trial conferences as the U.S. may require.”

          The document states: “The defendant agrees to testify truthfully and completely at any grand juries, trials or other proceedings.”

          Additionally, Lazar has agreed to provide all documents, writings, and recordings within his custody to the U.S. government that may be relevant to investigations or inquiries.

          1. Yeah, but just because he has to tell them everything he knows that doesn’t mean that we will ever find out about that.

          2. cut what amounted to a very favorable deal

            That means a few things:

            (a) He convinced them he has high-value info that they really want.

            (b) They are planning to use that info.

            The feds don’t give people good deals unless both of those are in play.

            I’m wondering the feds aren’t wising up to the fact that they can end her career without actually going after her, but going after her minions. Indictments of close staff are just as damaging to the Big Dog in the public eye, and you never know who might roll over on the Big Dog to cut their own deal.

            I’d prefer jail time, but I’ll settle for public humiliation and either getting canned by the DNC or going down in flames to Trump. Imagine how that will stick in her craw.

    2. I was assured – repeatedly! – by her proponents that she’d totally never done anything remotely illegal, and the FBI had “cleared” her of any possible wrongdoing and it was all just a kerfuffle!

      Plainly the State IG is just Fox News or something.

  6. A State Department inspector general’s report finds that Hillary Clinton violated federal laws and guidelines on email use while serving as secretary of state and did not do the bare minimum to try to comply within the law.

    Hillary might go down, after all. Even though Bill prefers his interns to do so.

    1. Yep.

      *** glares at Hugh ***

    2. A real quote posted by a prog two hours ago.

      So we finally get official recognition that two other Secretaries of State did exactly the same as Hillary but only Hillary is facing investigation. It’s just the latest dirty trick campaign by Republicans to smear Hillary.

      1. Oh, please. Hillary’s campaign paid somebody to write that.

        1. Maybe, but I sure know plenty of people who believe it. Look at my FB feed.

          1. I’m not going to argue with you there.

            Several of your Facebook friends have earned a spot in the Guinness Book of World Retards.

            1. That’s a terrible thing to say about Los Doyers. True, but still.

          2. I’ve also seen “… and anyway everyone else did it too!” in the wild, I believe both on Facebook and – less surprisingly – on Internet Comments.

      2. BOOOOSHHH

      3. Colin Powell set up an email server in the bathroom of his New York home, granted access only to his closest insiders–which did not include the President–and used it to exchange favors for large “donations” to his charity foundation with foreign countries, then failed to disclose the existence of the server for a full three years into a Congressional investigation into the death of four State Dept. personnel during a terrorist attack?

        Wow. I totally missed that.

        1. That’s a good nutshell. Thanks!

        2. That’s why I never liked the man.

        3. Naw, that was Condoleeza Rice.

      4. These people are so fucking stupid. No SOS has ever fucking had a private email server for State Department emails. They really are that retarded. When the retards say 2 others did the same thing, they meant ‘have private email accounts’. They may as well have said 200 million people did the same.

      5. So we finally get official recognition that two other Secretaries of State did exactly the same as Hillary but only Hillary is facing investigation.

        This is wrong on at least two counts:

        (1) No other SecState ran their own email server.

        (2) No other SecState refused to use any State Dept. email at all.

        1. Re: Point #2 – Given that (a) the job of Secretary of State routinely involves the handling of Top Secret and otherwise classified information and (b) Hillary didn’t have a government-sanctioned email at all, how is it even conceivable that she didn’t break the law here?

        2. WRT #2, I’m pretty sure Jefferson didn’t use e-mail when he was Secretary of State. So, if Hillary is guilty, so was Jefferson.

      6. If others did the same, then charge them too. I’d be happy enough to see every former government official in prison.

    3. No way. There is a certain class of people in the US that are above the law and the Clintons are part of that class.

      Repeat after me: And nothing will happen.

      1. I agree

      2. I’m liking a scenario where Clinton is just an unindicted co-conspirator, but her minions get indicted, roll over on her, etc.

        Public humiliation and losing big to Trump would be a very personal hell for Hillary.

        1. “roll over on her”

          If they don’t have an “accident”

    4. Not as long as Obama is president. He’ll protect her.

      1. He wants to be on the Supreme Court.

        Can’t let that brilliant legal mind go to waste.

        1. No way will His Highness submit himself to being questioned, and being subject to approval by, a gaggle of mere Senators.

          1. He might. Don’t underestimate his narcissism. He is likely to not understand that anyone would object to him.

        2. Did he even pass the bar exam? Has he ever litigated a single civil or criminal case?

          The guy who closed by house purchase is more qualified.

        3. Can’t let that brilliant legal mind go to waste.

          It hasn’t even been taken out of the box yet. He’s saving it for that follow-on.

      2. Mmmm… maybe. Still think a switcharo with Biden is possible if she is too damaged.

        1. Yep.

          *** glares at Hugh ***

      3. If you were to believe reports of bad blood between the Obamas and the Clintons, he will enjoy slowly turning the knife, while watching her beg for a Presidential Pardon.

        Alternatively, independents, Bernie bros, and some Democrats could clamor for justice and simply set the justice process in motion. The Tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time by the incarceration of corrupt politicians.

        1. Maybe, but like Playa said above, he wants to be on SCOTUS. And he knows Hillary will have to return the favor of him protecting her from being indicted.

          1. Uncle Joe could do the same, and he has a better chance of winning the election than Hillary.

            1. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Biden come in at the last moment and be the nominee. How about a Biden/Warren ticket, wouldn’t that be fun?

              1. Wouldn’t work. Biden has never been with a Native American, so he would not be able to keep his hands off her.

          2. I really think Hillary’s inability to seal the deal against Sanders is the only thing keeping her out of jail right now.

          3. Yep, she’ll make the deal. And she is so ethical that Obama knows she would never renege on it.

  7. I’M VOTING FOR TREEBEARD!

    TREEBEARD/QUICKBEAM 2016!!!!

    1. Now, now, don’t be hasty. How about Bombadil/Gwaihir?

      1. I am not seeking, nor would I accept, the nomination of my party.

    2. Don’t be hasty.

      1. [begins long, deliberate contemplation of whether the above compliment warrants partial closure of the eyelids]

    3. Heh, I’m doing a LOTR marathon right now on account of my clear liquid diet and procedure tomorrow. (Extended editions, of course)

  8. “Anaheim” link goes to ISIS story.

    1. Disisneyland?

      1. Allaheim?

        1. I love the comments section.

        2. You people make life worth living.

    2. Makes sense really

  9. “A State Department inspector general’s report finds that Hillary Clinton violated federal laws and guidelines on email use while serving as secretary of state and did not do the bare minimum to try to comply within the law.”

    So… That’s the end of it?

    1. Well, yeah, cuz all her predecessors did exactly the same thing, and it’s no big deal, anyway.

    2. He said it. What more do you want?

      Libertarians are impossible to please.

  10. Anti-Trump protesters clashed with Trump backers in Anaheim.

    The link goes to a Fox News story about Belgium. However, there is alt text, so I forgive you.

    1. If substantiated, the claim will destroy Couric’s reputation as a journalist

      But she’ll always be *perky*, right! RIGHT?!

      1. She was a journalist?

        Coulda fooled me.

        1. exactly. her reputation consisted of being a dnc hack.

          1. and that colon thing.

            1. Well now it’s a semi-colon.

              1. They took out half her colon? Did not know.

            2. A real journalist would care more about getting to the bottom of it.

      2. So long as a camera is pointed at her.

        1. *in her.

      3. Did she have a reputation as a journalist?

    2. A friendly reminder of what Couric is:

      “Couric” Coined The Unit Of Measurement For Excrement By “South Park”

      More Crap

      After taking a laxative, Randy produces an abnormally large piece of excrement during an extremely painful bowel movement. Believing he has passed the world’s biggest stool, he reaches out to the “European Fecal Standards and Measurements” office, headquartered in Z?rich, Switzerland. The institute concludes he has the world record, weighing in at 8.6 courics ? a fictional measurement unit (approximately 2.5 pounds) named after journalist Katie Couric.

      1. Once again, South Park is ahead of the curve.

      2. Regardless…

        Katie Couric? Would.

        1. *shudder*

      3. South Park ain’t fools I tell ya.

    3. Awful? No, Injun, sweet and delicious.

      If substantiated, the claim will destroy Couric’s reputation as a journalist and Soechtig’s reputation as a director. It appears that the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) participants have the evidence in the form of audio from the interview that substantiates their claims.

      Yeah, they picked the wrong group to misrepresent. “Ha, ha, dumb crackers will never know…” WRONG!

      Thanks, for this, Injun.

      1. And all for a documentary no one will watch.

        1. Oh, I bet lots of people will be watching it now, including perhaps twelve people who would never have done so if left to their own devices.

      2. You’re welcome.

        Still, I am expecting my anti-Second Amendment friends and extended family to be willfully ignorant of this and post blatant lies from that BS documentary.

        A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still getting its boots on.

        1. Well, the truth have it long and hard to Winston’s mom, so it can be a little leisurely with its way out of there.

          1. Gave

    4. I listened to the relevant portion of the audio tape. It is utterly damning of Couric.

      http://www.ammoland.com/2016/0…..z49hbrawZu

      1. The more I watch the Left’s shenanigans, the more hardened of a Second Amendment guy I become.

        1. The second amendment makes me hard too.

    5. Her glossy calves helped me get through high school.

      1. glossy calves

        Don’t tell us you watched her nurse them.

      2. What are you, Amish?

    6. All the left do is lie, they have nothing else.

  11. A State Department inspector general’s report finds that Hillary Clinton violated federal laws and guidelines on email use while serving as secretary of state and did not do the bare minimum to try to comply within the law.

    So it’s settled. She’s not a lawbreaker, she’s a guideline-violator. Controversy over!

    1. The FBI investigation continues. Just because the fan isn’t brown and stinky yet doesn’t mean it will stay that way.

      1. Hillary poo has lots of white in it as well.

  12. If Hillary skates on the e-mail thing and becomes POTUS what are the odds that people in the intelligence community are going to refuse to send her and her team information?

    They would have to assume anything they send her will end up out in the wild rather quickly. Who could trust her? Who would undertake anything even remotely risky on her behalf?

    1. If Hillary skates on the e-mail thing and becomes POTUS what are the odds that people in the intelligence community are going to refuse to send her and her team information?

      Zero.

    2. “In a continuance of The Most Transparent Administration In History, President Clinton today issued an Executive Order mandating all intelligence information be sent ‘in the clear’.”

    3. That would be bad, Warren. It would be treason, and the beginning of permanent secret government. The best hope in that scenario is impeachment.

      1. I’m not sure what the law says, but at the very minimum, she should permanently be denied a security clearance for life. If that precludes her from being president, so be it.

    1. This has been one of my greatest fears in life since I was a child.

      1. It’s going to happen!

        1. Get pics!

      2. This is why you should not fuck a snake.

        Crusty.

        1. I think we’ve all done it at some point

      3. This has been one of my greatest fears in life since I was a child.

        And yet you’re perfectly fine with using glory holes. Some people…

      4. OH YEAH? I AM THE ONE WHO BITES!

    2. I’m sure the Python was just identifying as human at the time.

      Do I have to do everything for you people?

      1. Cisssssssssgender ssssssshitlord

    3. This is why you shouldn’t be a sitzpinkler.

    4. Thailand officially off list of places to visit.

      1. If you ever do visit, make sure to not heckle the king online. I hear that can turn out badly.

  13. http://www.climatedepot.com/20…..te-change/

    Meet the polar Grizzly bear. The Canadians are building an army of mutant bears.

    1. So, grizzly bears like to “play in the snow?”

      1. It that your natural color?

    2. We discussed this yesterday. That’s Heroic Mullato’s Bear Army.

      1. The magnificent bastard.

    3. How do you tell a good polar bear? The polar bears of color. White polar bear bad! Racist!

      1. What do you want to bet Vox has already assigned someone an explainer piece on the evils of racism in the polar bear community.

    4. Jesse assured me that this bear sex was happening all the time…

      I don’t seem to recall him mentioning anything about female bears, though.

      1. Dr. Jesse recommends 5 cups of strongly brewed spearmint tea per day for lady bears.

        1. Fuck you for posting that link without a warning. Hey everyone, that link leads to science.

          1. Stop spoiling the surprise! Also best line for people who aren’t going to click through:

            Recent research in Turkey has shown that spearmint tea has antiandrogenic properties in females with hirsutism.

          2. Why Turkey?

            1. Dang it, jesse!

              I was reading the article for which you provided a link, and then typing a comment whilst you were posting you spoiler – and thus spoiling my post.

              Go shave your head.

              1. Oh good. I was worried my stereotyping was off when you posted.

    5. MALE GRIZZLIES MATE WITH FEMALE POLAR BEARS IN THE WILD
      Therefore, only male brown bears x female polar bear crosses have been documented in the wild. The small number of verified hybridizations does not allow quantification of past introgression, but the examples from extant wild populations indicate only male brown bears are involved in inter-species matings.

      In other words, brown males are into white females, but white males don’t care about brown females. I heard this story before, and it wasn’t about bears.

      1. At least we know that we can consistently call them grolar bears now.

      2. The joke is on the female polar bears. They are gonna have raise those cubs on their own.

    1. I watched season 1 and thought it was pretty good, but never got around to season 2. Yay or neigh?

        1. The troops are jerks. So is MJ.

      1. I didn’t get that show.

  14. The End of the Office Dress Code

    Because of all the hullaballoo surrounding dress codes, there are going to be no more dress codes.

    “We are moving into an era where personal expression is going to trump the desire to create a corporate identity,” Professor Scafidi said. “It’s a huge power shift.” And it has already begun.

    Brings to mind the “casual Friday” moment on Curb. NSFW for a few salty words

    1. I’m down in my Miami office and believe me, casual Fridays here are delightful.

      1. I’m down in my Miami office

        Check out Mr. Big Shot in his Miami office. Pics? Please? Thanks.

        1. You want pictures of my suburban Baltimore office?

          1. People who live in Baltimore are bad, shut up!

            1. I’ll be there Thursday through Monday!

              1. I recommend Lexington Market any time after 7 pm.

                1. LOL nah I’m there for Deathfest

                    1. Don’t go near Lexington Market is my advice. I might do it before 5pm, definitely not after.

                    2. My fav Bal’mer eye opener is when Google Maps took me back on Preston St, when I went to Chaps for lunch. The missing and burned out buildings weren’t supposed to be on the tour.

                      I might have died, but I saved 4 minutes of drive time, compared to taking Rt 40 back.

                    3. Take a drive by my old house on Virginia Avenue, 3500 block. Say howdy to those helpful young men on the corner.

                  1. “I’m there for Deathfest”

                    Oh, so you’re going walking around in West Baltimore at night. I see. Nice knowing you.

                    1. Just for laffs, my wife took photos of me at Leakin Park.

                      The most fun thing to do in Baltimore is to get out of your car at Pennsylvania and North, then do a Rex Kramer imitation.

                    2. Try heading out Biddle street and keep going east. Holy fucking shit. Or just pretty much anywhere off of 40 in West Baltimore, where it looks like a scene out of a post apocalypse movie.

    2. Bullshit. Companies will continue to have dress codes.

      1. Sales and customer facing employees will for sure

        1. You can’t write specific dress code that does not offend, or “offend” someone. What does “professional” mean?

          1. Like old white people back before the civil rights act.

      2. No shirt, no shoes, no paycheck.

        1. /takes off pants

        2. No monocles, no service.

    3. Yeah, businesses are all about attracting Millennials today.

    4. This mean Hipsters will start wearing three-piece suits, and maybe even straw hats.

      Who wants to open an old-tymie haberdashery with me in Brooklyn?

      1. Can it be a strip club too?

    5. I am fascinated by dress codes. I was being interviewed once and the interviewer (President of company) said office is a dress shirt and tie place.

      He was wearing a short sleeve khaki shirt, brown tie, and brownish/khaki-ish pants. He looked awful, but he was following his own set code I suppose.

      1. The military isn’t manic about dress and uniformity for nothing. How you dress absolutely affects how you think and how you act. If you have a slack dress code, you are likely to have slack employees. Sometimes that is not a bad thing. If you are a design firm that employs artistic people, you want people to be a bit slack and flexible. But most of the time, it doesn’t work for the best.

        1. How you dress absolutely affects how you think and how you act.

          Hmm. Well, if I’m wearing a nice suit I do my best not to get anything on it or go out in the rain or anything like that. I guess that’s the way I act differently.

          1. I used to not believe it either Juice. But enough time in and around the military convinced me otherwise.

            1. You know, it might just change my perception of how others see me, which in turn would subtly change the way I act toward them. And it would depend entirely on the situation, mainly whether the situation traditionally calls for some specific sort of dress. I still think dressing certain ways for certain situations (aside from functional dress, of course) is a relic from the old days before glowing screens and mass communication. Regardless, it’s going to be a pretty hard-to-kill tradition.

              1. Its hard to explain. But if you dress a certain way day after day eventually you start to think that way. It doesn’t happen immediately. But if you say wear a really good suit and dress very formally every day, over time you will start to think more formally and act more that way. It is really strange but it happens.

                1. I agree with this, John. However, I think the point of the story is that the official “dress code” is going away, and it is going away soon.

                  There will be an unofficial dress code. I doubt dressing like Zuckerberg is going to get a person ahead in competitive law firms and investment banking and as another commenter mentioned, sales jobs. Dressing professionally will always be a part of society, just not an official part of society.

              2. it might just change my perception of how others see me, which in turn would subtly change the way I act toward them.

                It absolutely will. Being well-dressed definitely changes both your self-image and how others deal with you.

                Plus, its fun. The biggest problem most people have with “professional” clothes is that they aren’t comfortable, which is entirely a function of them not fitting correctly. Get them tailored some to fit right, and they are perfectly comfortable and elevate your game, period.

                And the ladies love a sharp-dressed man.

        1. Brownies. We’re talking about normal people here.

        2. Ha, no. A UPS uniform would have looked better.

    6. Casual Friday is all I’ve ever seen. I can’t even walk through the door of any of my clients in jeans, unless it’s Friday. Well, I could and I’m sure I’d get away with it, but why would I want to be disrespectful to people who give me money?

      This prof is dreaming up shit, because that’s all these people have to do. They don’t live in the real world like the rest of us.

      1. The title ‘Professor’ often times indicates an inability to actually do the things he professes to teach about.

  15. Mugabe gives defiant speech on Africa Day

    Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has said he is “not a Yankee”, as he addressed around 50,000 of his supporters at a rally held in the capital, Harare, to honour him on Africa Day.

    The 92-year-old also ruled out the possibility of stepping down from office, and hit out at rival leaders in the ruling Zanu-PF party for plotting to succeed him.

    Mr Mugabe added:

    There should never be little groups to promote so and so. Those little groups are treasonous groups, they poison the party.

    I belong to my people. I don’t like to be American. I am not a Yankee. I am not a Briton… I belong to Zimbabwe.

    I am at the service of the people. If the people feel I should go, I go. But at the moment where do you want me to go? I am not going anywhere.”

    1. Is that fucker ever going to die? What is he a vampire or something. He has got to be in his 90s. The nasty evil SOB will not die.

      1. He’s only 92. He’s got years left.

      2. Lots of his countrymen die young because of him, so it all balances out.

      3. He has got to be in his 90s.

        Did you read the bit Aloysius quoted? đŸ˜‰

        1. No. I saw the name and threw up a bit and avoided the rest.

      4. Evil is not easy to kill. See Gadhafi, Castro, Hillary. Well, one of them is dead, but he walked around looking like a wax museum dummy for about 100 years.

    2. Gotta love those nonagenarian dictators.

      Malawian nonagenarian dictator Hastings Kamuzu Banda once banned the Simon and Garfunkel song “Cecilia” because he had a mistress named Cecilia and the oppostion used the lyrics, “I’m down on my knees/I’m begging you please to come home” to mock him.

    3. “I belong to my people. I don’t like to be American. I am not a Yankee. I am not a Briton… I belong to Zimbabwe.”

      As he pulls out a machete to decapitate one of his own while wiping a tear.

    We haven’t heard from Pro Liberate in a while. Apparently he is still amassing his mutant army to invade Georgia. Now he has crocodiles.

    1. Hopefully, General Butt Naked is with him and we will soon take Georgia. After that, we meet Captain Zoolander and his colored polar bear army for the final battle.

  17. “Donald Trump responded to a speech by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) criticizing his business record and populist rhetoric by calling her Pocahontas.”

    What?

    That’s an outrage!

    Her proper name is Lieawatha!

    1. I though it was officially “that stupid bitch”

  18. You can get a Hodor doorstopper.

    I fucking love capitalism. Fuck you Tony, MTrueman and all the other assholes I’m forgetting. We wouldn’t have Hodor doorstoppers if we lived in your world.

    1. Oh sure, but do you fucking love science? WELL DO YOU???

      1. Do you have to be a stupid looking bow tie wearing dick to love science?

      2. I do fucking love science. That’s why I’m strictly opposed to people to people eating non-organic food, you know, silicates and such.

        1. I’m going to go drink a tall glass of saltwater just to spite you.

  19. Burt Kwouk, Pink Panther star, dies aged 85

    Burt Kwouk, who was best known for playing Inspector Clouseau’s manservant Cato in the Pink Panther films, has died aged 85.

    He appeared in seven Pink Panther films opposite Peter Sellers as Clouseau’s servant who regularly attacked his employer to keep him alert.

    He also starred in BBC sitcom Last of the Summer Wine from 2002 to 2010.

    The actor, who was born in Manchester but raised in Shanghai, was awarded an OBE in the 2011 New Year Honours List.

    1. “Not NOW, Cato!”

      RIP

    2. God those movies were brilliant.

  20. Gawker Fails to Persuade Judge to Retry Hulk Hogan Case

    A judge on Wednesday denied Gawker Media’s motion seeking a new trial for an invasion of privacy suit brought by the former professional wrestler Hulk Hogan after a jury awarded him more than $140 million over the publication of a sex tape.

    Lawyers for Gawker had argued that documents sealed by the judge during the trial, some of which included the wrestler making racist statements, should have been made available to the jury, which reached its decision in March. They also tried to show that the jurors’ objectivity had been tainted. The arguments did not persuade the judge, Pamela Campbell, who also ruled that the amount of the damages would not be reduced.

    Thiiieeeellllllll!!!!

    1. They also tried to show that the jurors’ objectivity had been tainted.

      From exposure to Gawker?

    2. The arguments did not persuade the judge, Pamela Campbell, who also ruled that the amount of the damages would not be reduced.

      Ha-HA! Suck it, Denton. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

    3. Lawyers for Gawker had argued that documents sealed by the judge during the trial, some of which included the wrestler making racist statements, should have been made available to the jury, which reached its decision in March. They also tried to show that the jurors’ objectivity had been tainted.

      Nice. They wouldn’t let us influence the jury’s objectivity; also, the jury’s objectivity was tainted! Like, what? *rolls eyes, smirks, makes sarcastic quip*

    4. You know, if they’d just shown the racist statements part, without the sex part, that’s newsworthy. The sex tape itself is a blatant violation of Hogan’s privacy.

      Fuck Nick Denton with a rusty chainsaw. And then film it and put it on the internet.

    5. The possible demise of Gawker ranks just second to the prosecution of NY state politicians for corruption

      both put a smile on my face.

    1. It should be its own reward.

    1. He is the dinner guest who will neither shut up or leave no matter how drunk he is or how late.

    2. Leasing it?

      1. How much you want to bet it ain’t their money leasing it, either.

    3. It is quite the strange spectacle watching ‘public servants’ turn into such lush millionaires.

    4. Interestingly I suspect you won’t hear Bernie Sanders complain about this.

  21. Posted this last night but it got no traction.

    A robot chef that can cook gourmet food for 30K?

    Yup. It learns by watching a chef put a meal together and then copies the movements perfectly. It can also prep and clean up.

    For 30k US that’s worth replacing all your prep and line staff. They payback on that is a year maybe less for the lower-paid workers.

    It can also do other domestic chores and obviously it will be perfect for any job, in any industry, that does not require judgement and to which it can be fitted.

    Say goodbye to lots and lots of low-end jobs. All you dumb socialist/commie motherfuckers who wanted to fight for 15 are going to be discarded like the useless trash you are.

    1. The real minimum wage is zero. Attempts to artificially push it to $15/hr is only guaranteeing that more people earn the real minimum.

    2. Yeah, that’s not going to be replacing actual sous chefs:)

      1. That’s not to say there won’t by an increase in pre-processed foods and automation, But that robot is not serving dinner hour rush.

        1. The first plane to fly didn’t have a toilet.

          This iteration can’t handle a rush but how about Gen 4 or 5?

          1. Yeah, I think most automation will resemble that used for prepacked food as seen on How it’s Made. There is certainly a lot of opportunity. Fried stuff can be consistently timed based on oil temp. Meat and seafood using a meat thermometer. Kitchen moves very very fast though in large restaurants. Those were my first jobs. Cooked a lot of food. Started at 3.15 an hour:)

    3. For 30k US that’s worth replacing all your prep and line staff.

      Shit, I was thinking this is the best birthday present for Mrs. Dean ever in the history of ever.

  22. Sugar shortage cuts Coca-Cola production in Venezuela

    A sugar shortage has forced Coca-Cola to stop producing soft drinks in Venezuela amid an escalating food and energy shortage.

    Coke said that suppliers in Venezuela will “temporarily cease operations due to a lack of raw materials”.

    The announcement comes after the country’s biggest brewer, Empresas Polar, closed plants due to a barley shortage.

    Venezuela’s economy has contracted sharply as oil prices plunge.

    A Coca-Cola spokesperson said the company would continue producing sugarless drinks such as Coca-Cola Light (Diet Coke).

    “We are engaging with suppliers, government authorities and our associates to take the necessary actions for a prompt solution,” she said.

    Sugarcane production has been falling due to price controls and rising production costs, as well as problems in obtaining fertiliser.

    1. Is there no end to the amazing wonders of this socialism?

      1. It’s amazing because Latin America is awash with sugar.

        1. It’s amazing because Latin America is awash with sugar.

          “Radio Yerevan was asked: What if socialism were built in Sahara Venezuela?

          Radio Yerevan answered: First sand sugar would become available only through ration cards, and then sand sugar would be distributed only to the Politburo members.”

        2. In Brazil it grows in ditches beside the road. It’s fucking everywhere.

      2. Feature, not a bug.

        The Bolivarian socialists in Venezuela have accomplished what the billionaire Bloomberg could not!

  23. Pictured in cuffs: HBO producer and his ‘drug dealer’ as they are arrested over the death of Long Island doctor mom-of-three – eight months after she died during Manhattan cocaine binge

    An HBO producer has been arrested on drug charges for allegedly giving cocaine to a married doctor who was found dead in an apartment doorway just hours later.

    Dermatologist Dr. Kiersten Rickenbach Cerveny, 38, was found dying in a doorway of a building in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood after a night of partying on October 4, 2015.

    The mother-of-three went on a drug binge with the married TV executive, Marc Henry Johnson, 51, and his dealer, ex-con James Holder.

    The pair ended up carrying her lifeless body down the stairs and leaving her in the entrance as they fled.

    Also, fun to play “guess the NYPD detective’s weight. My guess: 7,000lbs.

    1. “leaving her in the entrance as they fled.”

      classy

    2. HBO producer Marc Henry Johnson, 51, (left) has been arrested on drug charges for allegedly giving cocaine to a top doctor and mother-of-three Dr Kiersten Rickenbach Cerveny, 38, (right) just hours before she died of an overdose

      Wow does that woman looked whacked out on cocaine in that picture.

        1. I mean, not anymore, obviously. But, y’know, back when that picture was taken.

          Shut up, you know what I mean.

          1. “But your honor, at no point did she say ‘no'” –

            Is the kind of ghoulish, nasty tasteless joke you might expect from other commenters, but not from me.

        2. She was not bad, especially for the over 35 mom class.

          1. Not bad? I’m going to go with pretty damned sexy.

            1. I’m guessing she was pretty fun too, considering that those dudes definitely tag teamed her at some point that night.

          2. Oops. I saw the other pic with the giraffe neck.

            The 3rd pic hides it. She looks best in that one.

    3. Hey, is that Chris Christie’s slightly-slower brother? The only one he didn’t manage to eat in the womb?

      1. He had four heart attacks while trying to step in that van.

    4. “When paramedics arrived, they found her panties stuffed in her purse.”

      That’s one way to get free coke.

      1. “I used to suck dick for coke. Now that’s an addiction. Did you ever suck dick for marijuana?”

      2. they found her panties stuffed in her purse

        The highlight of the evening was definitely an eiffel tower. No question.

  24. That study critiquing NASA’s ‘bad science’ on asteroids is pretty bad science

    Science fight! NERDS!

    Buried in the story is this quaint musing:

    “Science is a human process, and it’s true that human beings are reviewing these results, but peer review is a scientist’s best friend,” she said. “It has its lumps and bumps, but science is interactive and peer review is what makes it strong. It’s the foundation of science.”

    1. “It has its lumps and bumps, but science is interactive and peer review is what makes it strong. It’s the foundation of science.”

      Unless it’s man made global warming, then it’s settled.

  25. From the Facederp:
    Noam Chomsky quotes: “The fact of the matter is that today’s Republican Party qualify as candidates for the most dangerous organization in human history. Literally.”

    Chomsky in Sandinista Nicaragua

    “During the 1980s, Central America’s revolutionary struggles produced transnational networks of friendship and solidarity on an unprecedented scale”

  26. Elizabeth Warren just absolutely shredded Donald Trump. There’s a lot more like this to come.

    The accompanying photo.

    The line that is driving all the attention this morning is Warren’s suggestion, in the context of Trump’s 2006 comment that a housing crash might enrich him, that the Donald is a “small, insecure money-grubber.” But Warren isn’t merely dissing Trump’s manhood. Warren ? who went on to note that Trump “roots for people to get thrown out of their house” because he “doesn’t care who gets hurt, as long as he makes a profit” ? is making a broader argument. Trump is not just a small, greedy person, but a cruel one, too.

    1. That theme is also threaded through Warren’s broadside against Trump on taxes. He isn’t just paying as little as possible ? and openly boasting about it ? because he’s greedy. He isn’t just refusing to release his returns because he doesn’t want to reveal he’s not as rich as he claims (another shot at Trump’s self-inflated masculinity). All this, Warren suggests, also reflects a larger moral failing: Trump plays by his own set of rules, engorging himself, while simultaneously heaping explicit scorn on social investments designed to help those who are struggling in the same economy that made him rich. Warren notes that Trump recently likened paying his taxes to “throwing money down the drain” ? i.e., he is reneging on the social contract ? after “inheriting a fortune from his father” and “keeping it going by scamming people.” Thus, Warren is making a broader argument about Trump’s fundamental cruelty.

      Shred-splaining!

      1. So these people actually think claiming that Trump doesn’t like to pay taxes is going to convince anyone outside the hive not to vote for him? How the hell does someone get that far removed from reality? I can’t understand how someone could live in a bubble that thick.

        1. And they aren’t even satisfied with how deep and insulated their bubble is. They want the government to ban speech they don’t agree with or anything that offends them at all. They are completely content with the thought of living their entire lives with their heads up their own asses.

          1. And that is why Trump is probably going to kill them. Your typical GOP stiff would act defensive about this and rush out to talk about how this is not true and they love to pay taxes and basically affirm the slander. Trump will say “so what of course I hate taxes everyone does” and the attack will bounce right off of him.

            Trump is a lot of things both good and bad. But one thing he is not is retarded in the way most professional Republicans are. He just isn’t going to fall for the same stupid shit that has worked on every other Republican. I seriously doubt the Democrats are going to even realize this much less figure out a different attack after this one has worked for so long before it is too late.

      2. I wonder if this whole thing was copy & pasted from 2012, with Trump substituted for Romney.

        1. It wouldn’t be surprising.

        2. Eh. The problem with Trump is not this, but his use of eminent domain to kick people out of their houses to enrich himself.

          But Republicans seem to be okay with it

      3. reneging on the social contract

        This is a trigger word for me. Show me where I signed this so-called social contract. SHOW ME!!!

  27. Chicago PD told by administrators not to do anything to prevent protests of Milo

    Only days before the event, administrators had demanded that DePaul College Republicans, the club that hosted the event, pay hundreds of extra dollars in security costs. This was a clear breach of contract, but the organizers paid the fee under threat of cancellation. Yet, after ordering a dozen security officers, the administrators prevented them from restoring order, forcing them to stand down.

    I talked to a few of the dozen Chicago police officers eventually called into the building, and they were irate. They were well-trained, and well-equipped to handle scenarios such as this. They wanted to do their job, and remove the protesters, but administrators demanded they stand passively and watch. Once again, violence prevailed over free speech on a liberal college campus, and the administration was 100% complicit.

    1. These people are extremely stupid to be toying around with cops like that. I guess they get all of their news from Fox and CNN. They’ll wind up getting someone killed.

      1. Imagine if one of the protesters had gone after one of the cops. I have no doubt that the protesters were dumb enough to do something like that. Needless to say, that would have ended badly for them.

        1. If they keep fucking around, they’ll find this out soon enough.

    2. They were well-trained, and well-equipped to handle scenarios such as this.

      In Chicago that means “ready to bash some heads in”, no?

      1. Let’s hope they don’t have flashbacks to their glory days in the 1968 Democratic convention.

        That would be so not OK.

    3. WTF, this is egregious. I hope they can sue the shit out of the university.

  28. I’ll just leave this here from The Raw Story. Man, those people are RETARDED:

    I can’t imagine a philosophy more at odds with society and human cooperation than libertarianism. It is the most irrational, inconsistent and self-contradictory line of thought I’ve every encountered.

    Plus, its adherents are all assholes.

    1. what story?

      1. The one about 11 questions to ask Libertarians.

        1. I guess I missed that one

    2. Leaving people alone is evil.

      Plus, its adherents are all assholes == ‘one of them called me a sheep and it hurted my feelings’

    3. “Plus, its adherents are all assholes.”

      It’s like a fish accusing other fish of swimming in water. It may be true, but how does it put the accuser in a better position?

      1. Libertarianism includes the right to be an asshole.

        1. You’re right, but I hate you anyway.

          /sarc

    4. I always want to ask people who say stuff like that what their definition of “libertarian” is.

      I suppose in one sense libertarianism is at odds with society, in that society always seems to contain many assholes who want to control other people and are willing to do what it takes to do so. So a libertarian government is very unlikely. But I don’t think that’s what they have in mind.

      1. what their definition of “libertarian” is

        A greedy evil dangerous person who wants to destroy the planet for profit, give assault rifles to little kids, and put women and minorities in chains.

        1. What do you mean, “give!?”

          1. If they polish enough monocles, or work hard enough in the asbestos mine.

          2. Gotta give them something to protect themselves from grues in the monocle mines.

      2. The most retarded thing about these people is that they don’t even understand their own argument. They think Libertarians reject any form of cooperation, which is of course absurd. The argument against libertarianism is that by affirming the supremacy of protecting individual freedom as the single legitimate end of government, it can’t account for the situation where collective action is necessary or the collective good has to outweigh the individual good.

        For example, if a foreign army was going to invade and enslave the country and the only way to stop it was through the draft, libertarianism could never approve of the draft. So a truly libertarian country would just get rolled and enslaved in that situation. Take a situation like the Russian revolution. The only way to deal with the Bulsoviks was to just shoot them before they had a chance to take over. But libertarianism could never endorse such action and when facing someone like Lenin, Libertarians would likely do nothing until it was too late and end up dead.

        Libertarianism is great as long as it isn’t confronted with true evil that cannot be countered by normal means.

        1. If a foreign army attempted to invade this country the military would suddenly get more volunteers than they knew what to do with.

          1. Hopefully. But what if it didn’t?

            1. Then maybe the country isn’t worth defending. You can always try asking Saddam Hussein how fiercely an army of unmotivated conscripts will fight to defend their country from invasion.

              1. Yeah, this. I’m pretty confident that if an actual invasion occurred, people would step up and fight it. If they didn’t, then is it really worth defending. I would say that if a draft is necessary to repel an invasion, then the people don’t deserve saving.

            2. In this fictional world you’ve concocted, wherein people are devoid of all sense of self-preservation, I suppose they would get conquered. In reality, a belief in the “supremacy of protecting individual freedom” includes repelling foreign invaders.

            3. Hopefully. But what if it didn’t?

              Then we are fucked. Sorry, a draft is slavery. I’m not going to promote people being enslaved so that they can avoid being enslaved.

          2. Wolverines!!!!!!
            /god that movie sucked

        2. Leaving people alone is mean, John. You just don’t get it.

    5. Can’t say he’s wrong about that part. I am surrounded by assholes.

    6. Well, we are assholes.

      But that’s telling. Libertarianism is all about cooperation — voluntary cooperation. Progressivism is about forced cooperation. Apparently that’s superior.

      1. But they clearly don’t see it as that.

        They’re the real sheep.

      2. Arguing a point using logic and reason instead of feelings is being an asshole.

        1. Facts are mean

    7. “Plus, its adherents are all assholes.”

      Tulpa? Is that you, Tulpa?

      It’s been my experience that a lot of people who try to argue with us–in the way they’re used to arguing with their family around the kitchen table–come away with their thinking in tatters and tears.

      It can be kind of a mind blowing event for people who’ve never really thought about what they believe and why to have their treasured opinions smeared all over their faces like dog shit.

      It’s a bit like waltzing into a graduate level mathematics course and expecting everyone to respect your sacred cows because you’ve memorized your times tables and the quadratic equation. You thought you knew a lot of math! Turns out everything you thought you knew was wrong. Some people handle that better than others.

      I’d guess that almost all of us here were not born in libertarian households. I bet most of us got spanked by a libertarian at some point, and we reacted to it in a fairly consistent way. You can learn from it, or you can turn to despairing cursing rage–like Mary “Y-U Buggin'” or any one of a thousand other trolls.

      God damn libertarians. Don’t they realize I’ve been shouting down family at the dinner table for years? I’m a fucking political genius! Why won’t they admit it?

    8. Well, that’s kind of the premise of libertarianism – people are assholes, so why give them power over you?

      Statists have this weird belief that people in governments are saints, yet everyone else is evil (especially corporations).

  29. For those of you who missed it this morning, The Wall Street Journal is calling for Preet Bahara to apologize for his disgusting behavior:

    “An apology from U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and other Justice officials would be a start.”

    http://tinyurl.com/hq353uf

    This seems to be a pattern with Preet Bahara, who, for those of you don’t remember, is the jackass that tried to prosecute people here at Hit & Run for making innocuous comments.

    In fact, it’s such a pattern–in this latest episode, he tried to hit someone with fraud charges when it was at worst breech of contract (i.e., not criminal)–I think the Senate should look into his misbehavior. Maybe we should start some kind of petition or ask Rand Paul to look into the obnoxious behavior of Preet Bahara.

    This jackass is completely out of control–and everybody from Ken White at Popehat to the Wall Street Journal editorial board knows it. Why isn’t Congress doing anything to reign Preet Bahara in? We should at least ask Rand Paul to have somebody look into his over-prosecution.

    I guess Bahara thinks he’s going to be the next Giuliani or something? Screw that! Let’s have the Senate expose this jackass for what he can get the support of the Democratic party machine, and it’s too late.

    1. Well he has put 2 of the 4 most powerful people in NY politics behind bars.

      AND he’s investigating the other two as well

      I’m not saying he’s not a dick. He is. I’m not saying he doesn’t routinely fuck with people because he can. He does.

      but wait until he’s done with these Democrat scumbags before you demand his head.

      1. There will always be more Democrat scumbags to put behind bars.

        Any U.S. attorney who isn’t actively putting New York Democrat scumbags behind bars isn’t doing his job. Prosecuting Democrat scumbags in New York is like shooting fish in a barrel. Anybody can do that!

        But proprietorial misconduct–and overreaching–is an issue no matter what else is going on.

        Preet Bahara is like the Donald Trump of the U.S. Attorney’s Office. It’s all about blowing hot air so he can get in the papers and ride it into politics. It’s shitty enough when a business man like Trump can get away with that. Much worse if someone like Preet Bahara is making media headline waves for himself to ride–by prosecuting people.

        1. “proprietorial misconduct”

          Auto correct is a technological step backwards.

        2. It’s all about blowing hot air so he can get in the papers and ride it into politics.

          Iol

          Spitzer used his faux prosecution of Wall St. to become governor.

          Preet by contrast has no future in politics. He’s fucking everyone important in NY. Everyone important has friends. And they will want payback. If he’s smart he’ll leave the country when he’s done with his prosecution-spree.

          1. Maybe the pain stops when they bring him to the big table.

            Regardless, for somebody that has no political future, he’s making an awful big name for himself nationally.

    2. “Why isn’t Congress doing anything to reign Preet Bahara in?”

      Because Preet, or one of his colleagues, would simultaneously and coincidentally open up an investigation on the Congress(wo)man who’s investigating him?

  30. reign Preet Bahara in

    It’s “rein”. Like on a horse.

    1. Thank you.

      Do you do punctuation, too?

      1. Are you seriously complaining about a pedantic nitpicking on this site??

        It’s half the reason I come here.

        I was hanging with some gun buddies the other day and realized that 50% of our conversation is about calling each other gay and insinuating an undersized member. It’s what homies do.

    2. Also, do you know the difference between caribou and reindeer?

      1. Reindeer control the weather and caribou rule the Gulf of Mexico.

        1. No!

          Reindeer can fly.

          Everybody knows that.

          1. How do you think they control the weather? It’s like you know nothing about science!

            1. So they should be put on trial for climate change? What if the defense attorney proves Santa exist?

              1. It’s climate hope and change. Not guilty!

              2. +1 The post office is good for something.

      2. One is an album by Elton John and the other can fly?

      3. I think reindeer are domesticated or semi-domesticated and caribou are wild. Or caribou are North American and reindeer Eurasian. One of those.

      4. Reindeer flow clockwise in the north and cariou flow anti-clockwise in the south?

  31. Everybody loves waffles!

  32. Donald Trump Calls Elizabeth Warren ‘Pocahontas,’

    That’s an outrage! Her name is Fauxcahontas!
