Stupid Swimsuit Model Does Not Respect The Gun, Should Probably Die

Over a Barrel
On Wednesday, you may recall, there was some gunplay in Canada, which was terrible and wrong because the shooting was done by a bad guy with a gun, who was then stopped by a good guy — actually a pretty awesome guy – with a gun. And people wrote all kinds of things about it on the ...

Peggy Noonan Writes Column, Eats Horse Tranquilizers (Not In That Order)

The bleating of sirens drifted up to her pied-a-terre high above the Manhattan streets, leaking through the duct tape she had used to seal all her windows. Oh sure, one heard sirens in New York all the time, but this was now the Age of Ebola and the wails took on a certain…ominousness, as if ...

Louie Gohmert: Why Is Obama Forcing Troops To Gay Massage Each Other?

Would you believe it's a towel ad from 1944?
Texas congressmollusk Louie Gohmert, that irrepressible imp, has been giving a lot of thought to Our Troops and how Barack Obama is trying to kill them all by making them fight the Ebolese Liberation Army. On some strange Christian radio talk show this week, Gohmert was crying about the lack of ...

Gov. Nikki Haley Wants To Arm All The Lady-Beaters, For The Constitution

That's just how freedom works, too bad

Senate Dems To Old Nazis: No Social Security For You!

Metaphorical Nazis need not worry
