Healthcare, How Does it Work?




Everything Trump says or does can be boiled down to a single concept:






If Insane Clown Posse were president right now, we wouldn't be having this discussion because at least those idiots know what they don't know.

Nutty Lady Says Nutty Things




Well, kids. That about does it for Louise Mensch. Her "anti-Trump" persona was every bit as interchangeable as her "anti-Hillary" persona and now people are finally starting to realize that she has no credibility whatsoever when it comes to anti-Trump activities, the actions of the Intelligence Community with regards to the various Trump investigations that are going on, and she has no pull with the Marshal of the Supreme Court.

Today she "doxxed" a user on Twitter and today she continued her bizarre, unhinged ranting. Numerous people on the left and right political spectrum have fallen for a chameleon-like persona that changes with the shifting winds. If you are following her for entertainment purposes, that's on you. If you want serious analysis of what's going on, you're barking up the wrong tree.













Sarah Palin Files Lawsuit Against Newspaper She Doesn't Read




I don't think Sarah Palin has much of a case here:

Sarah Palin has sued The New York Times for defamation.

The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate filed a lawsuit against the Times on Tuesday alleging that a recent editorial falsely portrayed her as responsible for inciting the 2011 shooting of Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords. 

"Today, Sarah Palin took a stand against The New York Times Company by filing a lawsuit which seeks to hold The Times accountable for stating that Governor Palin is part of a 'sickeningly familiar pattern' of politically motivated violence and that she incited the horrific 2011 shooting of Representative Gabby Giffords," lawyers for Palin said in a statement. 

Palin is seeking more than $75,000 in damages, according to the lawsuit. 

The Times editorial, published in the wake of the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise earlier this month, accused Palin of "political incitement" ahead of the 2011 Giffords shooting, the lawsuit says. The editorial wrongly claimed an ad from Palin's political action committee put "Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs," according to the lawsuit. 

The Times issued a correction a day later, noting that "no such link was established" between Palin's ad and the shooting, and that the ad in question "depicted electoral districts, not individual Democratic lawmakers, beneath stylized cross hairs." 

Still, the Times said that the error did not "undercut or weaken the argument of the piece."

Why not sue for a couple of million dollars? Why low-ball the Times at $75K? Can't Sarah do anything right? I mean, it's not like creating graphics with "surveyor's marks" is cheap.

UPDATE: Someone wrote to tell me that's not actually a picture of Sarah Palin. The hell you say!

Given that Miss Palin now has a lawyer out there suing people, I am not going to use her actual likeness unless it furthers the plot in a meaningful way.
