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
