The News

“If it bleeds, it leads.” And when events conspire to be boring, they will just make shit up. It used to be that News Departments were separate from Entertainment. But in the great race for ratings, they combined. The goal of news reporters is not longer to inform you. It is to keep you watching.

Different Strokes

Differences of opinion, even though they agree on the facts. Great skit from SNL.

Bad Excuses

Half of all Republican men refuse to get vaccinated against Covid-19. You might think that this could be a good thing because it might cause an extinction event for supporters of Donald Trump, but unfortunately it is just as likely to kill the rest of us as well. But the crazy thing are the excuses […]

Profiles in Insurrection

Garret Miller is one of the insurrectionists who stormed the US Capitol building on January 6. Like many in the mob, he thoroughly documented his actions on social media. This included a selfie of himself after breaking in, along with a comment “Just wanted to incriminate myself a little lol.” He also bragged that he […]

Being Schooled

Before you dismiss this as something that could never happen in America, just remember that it was only half a decade ago that nobody (including me) thought that a conspiracy-minded, washed up, dishonest reality TV star could become president.

Hitchhiking

One of my regular readers sent this comic. I just think it is cute. A study done by Facebook has found “significant overlap between communities that are skeptical of vaccines and those affiliated with QAnon”. How many of you secretly hope that after the rest of us get vaccinated, then QAnon believers, along with the […]

More Cancel Culture

In keeping with the cartoons about Cancel Culture… If Trump tells organizations that they can’t use his name or photo, does that mean that he is canceling himself? If so, booya!

Sing for your Vaccine

This starts off a little slow, but Randy Rainbow really hits a home run by the end. Enjoy! And you were worried that there would be nothing to laugh about after Trump got dumped by the American people and shuffled off to Florida. UPDATE: During his campaign, and when he took office, Joe Biden promised […]

Uh, No!

Geraldo Rivera tweeted this today: The response on Twitter is hilarious. Mainly, nobody knew that Rivera was thinking about this, and (not surprisingly) nobody cared. As several people pointed out, he wouldn’t have a chance, and would get creamed.

SNL was pretty darn good this week. Here are two skits:

Trump bin Laden?

Osama bin Laden’s big mistake was that he didn’t realize that he could have caused far more death and destruction by simply by becoming president of the US. Indeed, Donald Trump wasn’t smart enough to figure that out on his own, the Russians had to cultivate him into it.

Unite Us

Watch this until the end.

EverOrange

Randy Rainbow to the rescue. Two comments: Didn’t anyone ever teach her to wear a mask properly? When she says “Q is a patriot”, Randy should have pointed out that Q has already abandoned her. From the NY Times: But since Mr. Trump’s defeat, Q has gone dark. No posts from the account bearing Q’s […]

The not-so-invisible hand of the free market

Can somebody explain why I’m getting most of my information about the whole GameStop story from humorous comics? For example, the same thing is now being done to silver futures. And gold futures might be next. Let me be clear, I’m not saying that the manipulation of GameStop’s stock is a good thing. The only […]

Pragmatism

As an avowed pragmatist, I am always trying to figure out what works. Which is why I love Kate McKinnon asking “What Still Works?” in last night’s SNL cold open:
