Dear California: Thank You.

[RELATED POST: Dear Georgia: Thank You]

Dear California,

Thank you for your interest in the great state of Georgia. I’m writing to let you know your attempts to undermine our special congressional election for the vacated sixth district seat fell woefully short. In other words, you failed to #FlipTheSixth.

Bless your hearts. A defeat like that must sting like the dickens, but this should bouy your spirits: in the race for most money raised, John Ossoff blew Congresswoman-elect Karen  Handel out of the water thanks to y’all. [RELATED: John Ossoff Reported Three Times as Many Donations from SF Bay Area than Georgia in Two Months] Evidently the number of donations you Golden Staters made to your golden boy’s campaign dwarfed the financial support he received from actual Georgians. Unfortunately, political contributor or not, one must actually live (cough…Ossoff…cough) in Georgia’s sixth district to vote in it. read more

In case you missed it, President Donald J. Trump addressed Muslim Leaders at the Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on May 21, 2017.

I want to thank King Salman for his extraordinary words, and the magnificent Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for hosting today’s summit. I am honored to be received by such gracious hosts. I have always heard about the splendor of your country and the kindness of your citizens, but words do not do justice to the grandeur of this remarkable place and the incredible hospitality you have shown us from the moment we arrived.

You also hosted me in the treasured home of King Abdulaziz, the founder of the Kingdom who united your great people. Working alongside another beloved leader – American President Franklin Roosevelt – King Abdulaziz began the enduring partnership between our two countries. King Salman: your father would be so proud to see that you are continuing his legacy – and just as he opened the first chapter in our partnership, today we begin a new chapter that will bring lasting benefits to our citizens. read more

Friends in Safe Spaces

It was only a matter of time.

Props to Chad Prather and Steve Mudflap McGrew (a.k.a Larry the Liberal) for this hysterical musical parody of Garth Brook’s hit, Friends in Low Places. In case you want to sing along (and who doesn’t?) here are the lyrics.

SAFE SPACES

Blame it all on our roots we never wore boots
and never once played in the street.
We feel very bitter,
get our news off of Twitter,
And we just can’t handle defeat.

You saw the surprise and the fear in our eyes
When Donald became president,
Screamed this can’t be true!
Americas through!
And to the safe spaces we went. read more

A Day Without a Woman

Shame on me for wishing the fate of the Pussyhat would be the same as those hideous brides maids dresses we wear once and shove into the dark recesses of our closets. Alas, feminist whack-jobs in cities across America are slapping those pink puppies, I mean pussies, atop their heads once again and playing hooky from work because today is NOT just another ordinary day. Today is A Day Without a Woman.

According to the organizers…

If you think NOT showing up for work or NOT caring for your home and loved ones is NOT the best way to shed light on the importance of women in society and the workforce,  CONGRATULATIONS! You are a normal, rational person. C’mon, you might be thinking, that’s not all A Day Without a Women is about, and you’re right. A Day Without a Woman is also about Reproductive Rights (of course it is!) and Gender Justice, which evidently is something to which gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans, Two-Spirit – whatever THAT is – and gender nonconforming people are entitled, but not straight males who were born that way. I could share more of this idiotic manifesto, but you’d need a Pepcid, so I’ll just hyperlink to the official A Day Without a Woman page (SURPRISE! It’s on The Women’s March website) and let you troll at your own risk. read more
