Come Heller high water …
- Gov. Rick Snyder is astonishingly, stupendously, and yes, possibly historically tone deaf. Either that or he simply didn’t care how it looked when he named Dr. Eden Wells as the head of a new council to improve the state’s response to (painful irony, dead ahead) public health threats. Wells, in case you’re not aware, is charged with obstruction of justice and making a false statement in connection with the mother of all Michigan health threats – the Flint water crisis. So why her, of all people? Ask the governor. Wait. Don’t do that. Not unless you want your head to explode. His spokesperson said: “Everyone is innocent until proven guilty.” Which is true. But putting an official accused of not protecting public health in charge of a group that’s supposed to protect public health is just a wee bit strange. Snyder’s not dumb. He had to know how this looks. But he also clearly didn’t care. Please remember which party he belongs to next Election Day. (But let’s be honest, you won’t.)
- If comedians were being honest they’d give thanks on Thanksgiving for Trump. Constant, incredible, A-list material.
- Trump on Roy Moore: “He says it didn’t happen. You have to listen to him, also.” Trump on Charles Manson: “He says he didn’t do it. You have to listen to him, also.” Trump on Genghis Khan: “He says all that pillaging was someone else. I’m not going to call him a liar.” See how absurd Trump’s Moore remark sounds?
- By the way, a child is sexually assaulted every 8 minutes in America. I’m sure their parents take comfort in knowing the president has the backs of predators.
- I could say this sort of thing every week, but did you ever think we’d see the day where the president would take the side of an accused child molester? Is temporarily losing control of a Senate seat that has always been and will always be Republican really that important?
- What am I saying, in his worldview of course it is.
- If there’s anything better than a blackened pizza crust bubble, I don’t know what it is.
- What would the holidays be without Christian conservatives making a stink about the Starbucks holiday cup? This year they’re offended by a cartoon depiction of two women holding hands, which they say is promoting the gay agenda. Honestly, I don’t know where they get the energy for all that outrage. They must practice. They must attend Outrage Class. Plus, I’ll bet it’s news to gays that they have a collective agenda. But if they did, would it really involve cartoons on coffee cups? I’d like to think they’d aim higher.
- I agree with the Detroit Free Press: Rep. John Conyers should resign. Allegedly doing what he’s said to have done is bad enough. But using tax dollars to make it go away? Unconscionable.
- Kathy Griffin says she’s been blacklisted for her photo stunt last year. Or maybe she’s just not getting booked because she’s painfully unfunny and obnoxious.
- “Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.” – Ralph Marston.
