A new report shows that the average price for a pound of ground beef climbed to another record high.

Only one fix for that: Obamaburger!

On MSNBC, a New York Times reporter said that health insurance is “weird and complicated”, so “a free market doesn’t work very well”.

Sure. And all you need to fix it is more of the government regulations that made it weird and complicated in the first place.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the Democrats’ 2016 nominee “should be willing to challenge wealthy and powerful interests”.

For example: challenging them to give more at political fundraisers.

Friend of IMAO Mike Z. Williamson has a new book out — but this time it’s political humor. That means it’s competing against my book. So when you buy it, buy my book too to keep things balanced.

No, wait, buy two copies of mine.

The one thing I didn’t get from all the talk about Serial is that it’s non-fiction.

BTW, now that I have a decent-sized commute, I’m getting into the world of podcasts and audiobooks. Recommendations welcome.

Man, I have not been following politics very closely lately. When does Wendy Davis take over as my governor?

As an aspiring fiction writer, I was completely intimidated by Serial when I thought it was fiction. “Such imaginative details!”

“And how’d they get such naturalistic performances out of all these different voice actors?”

I did a “die-in” protest in my bed this morning.

While it’s true that “everything dies,” I still don’t get why Obama made that the slogan for the Affordable Care Act.

Maybe someone should host a big international debate on whether Muslims should murder people or not because I’d like to hear both sides.

Shouldn’t we be moving on from killing people because of weird beliefs in God to killing people because of weird beliefs in economics and science?

Waterboarding Gremlins just makes more of them.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said President Obama considers the GOP’s “Emperor” criticism “a badge of honor”.

Mr. President: this is America – we don’t need no stinking badges.

This girl is so good, that even the many intercut pointless reaction shots from the judges weren’t enough to keep me from watching this to the end.

And take a good look at the stage at the end and think about the fact that she had all that on her at the beginning of the act.

Conservative columnist George Will took a shot at Obama, calling him “the greatest builder of the Republican Party since Ronald Reagan”.

Sadly, though, not NEARLY as scary to Russia.
