Either Way, She’s No Aunt Bee

I didn’t know this: California Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters is actually known to her constituents as “Auntie Maxine“.

Not sure whether that’s a reference to a beloved relative or the crazy broad who ran Thunderdome.

Mostly Because I Admire Painstaking Attention to Detail

[DIY Perrier Style Miniature Mineral Water (Fake food)] (Viewer #46,252)

Doesn’t look all that difficult or complicated, but I don’t have the steady nerves or visual acuity to do something that fiddly.

The end result is admittedly adorable, though.

We’ve posted about Project A119 before at IMAO, but it looks like the Russkies had their own version of it, too:

And With an Apology to Any Snakes I May Have Offended…

Found in a pile in the parking lot of an Arkansas Walmart: 40 snakes.

Guess folks there really miss the Clintons.

“Also, I Met George C. Scott”

Researchers are developing software that allows humans and dolphins to talk.

Random Thoughts: Obama Speech and Hillary Lessons

I don’t know what happened to the never ending era of progressivism that Obama was supposed to herald in, but at least he’s making bank.

Obama’s $400,000 Wall Street speech was all about how Bernie would have won.

watches A Handmaiden’s Tale
“This could happen in real life!”
watches Power Rangers Dino Super Charge
“This could happen in real life!”

We’ve now gone from constant worries about non-existent right-wing violence to blaming the right for causing left-wing violence.

“We’ll show this provocateur by getting all provoked!”

Not sure how it’s going to go for the country, but I’m pretty sure this presidency thing is going to be a great growth opportunity for Trump.

I don’t get my college asking for donations. Giving money to a university these days feels like giving alcohol to a drunk.

Oh. I thought “Make sure your Adobe Flash Player is up to date” was a euphemism for deleting it.

If there was a march to stop useless marches, I wouldn’t march at it because it wouldn’t accomplish anything.

I don’t care about the content of Obama’s speech; it’s worth paying him $400k just to prove that everyone who believed in him is an idiot.

Are people claiming the NYT is doing something worse than paying good money for the opinions of Thomas Friedman and Paul Krugman?

While Communism murdered even more people than Nazism, it’s not as toxic to be associated with because it’s supposedly better intentioned?

If we have enough idiots screw with our health care, one of them is bound to do something right.

One of the most disappointed I’ve been in life was when I found out Doctor Who wasn’t about an owl with a medical license.

“You wanna medal or a monument?”
“I want a monument wearing a medal that says ‘Best Monument’.”

I think Dems have learned a lot from 2016 that will help next time they nominate a candidate no one likes who is under FBI investigation.

You’ll be able to tell when Hillary Clinton has learned her lesson when she apologizes for running for president in the first place.

When you give up freedom to the government, you’ll never get it back unless the whole government collapses. So it could be gone for months.

Cartoon of the Day – Mess

[A.F. Branco]

If Obama was still in office, they’d be crawling all over themselves saying how wonderful everything was.
