I hope to Dawg it is not a dog sitting business.

RIP Leslie Gore

Well, it was her party and she could cry if she wanted to. Lesley Gore will always be associated with that novelty song. (And the much lesser known follow-up, Judy’s Turn To Cry, in which she wins Johnny back from that tramp.) All of this campy music actually hides the life of a pretty good song writer and a long-time out lesbian.

Holy Catnip, Batman! Did you know she was on Batman?! She played one of Catwoman’s minions, Pussycat, who knew?

I think she lived a pretty full life, just being herself and tonight in Heaven there will be one of the best sock-hops in all of Eternity.

Happy Preznint’s Day

Well, all of ’em have rocks in their heads, I suppose.

Because We Love A Good Retraction

One Lump of Stupid or Two?

If it’s Monday it must be Petunia and Pals. Today Fox’s favorite Elmer Gantry wannabe on the payroll, Robert Jeffresse tells us that The Kenyan Usurper is ordering churches to get the word out about Obamacare:

“You know, when most people come to church, they come to hear a timeless word from the Lord, not the latest word from Washington, D.C..”

Oopsie! That ACA DHS “Second Sunday & Faith Weekend of Action Toolkit” was in 2013 to cover open enrollment through Feb. 15, 2015, and it was to explain how the exchanges work, you know, two years ago. Nice try, Jeffress. Remember that Commandment about not lying?

Meanwhile, In Massachusetts…

I’m told this is the teevee weather guy, and if not, he should be.

Mixed Messages, Cont.

Bumper Sticker reloading

The second, lower bumper sticker is what takes this from typical NRA bravado to high art.

Have You Seen This Woman?

A dead-eyed dick

A dead-eyed dick

Alaska’s part-time governor and full-time grifter Sarah Palin has gone missing from her internet channel ($9.95/month, bitches!) for the past 10 days.

Last seen grifting the rubes.

Tucker Carlson: Feminist

Tucker wants us to know that he found nothing appealing in Fifty Shades of Grey, and then for good measure adds, “If adult women find this appealing — I don’t get it, and you clearly find that embarrassing, but can we say that they shouldn’t find it appealing?”

I’m glad Hebephrenic TeeVee Dinner heir and vanity press owner Tucker Carlson could clear that up for the skirts.

Rand Paul Wants Us To Open The Box

Rand Paul groundhog day driving

The Sen. Aqua Buddha Rand Paul once again wants us to open Schroedinger’s Box to check on the cat, so to speak. Is he or is he not a graduate of Baylor University? Let’s listen in!

ARRINGTON: Let’s talk about economics because maybe you can actually explain this to me. I have an econ degree which means I know just enough not to understand any of what our government is [inaudible]…

PAUL: Mine’s in biology and English so this is going to be a great conversation.

It’s just a snippet, but the context seems to be pretty clear. David Arrington of TechCrunch fame is interviewing him and they both credential themselves. Later in the interview, Sen. Aqua Buddha again reinforces his degree:

“This is just me. I have a biology degree, okay? But with Bitcoin my concern always was whether or not something has real value. So I could imagine a kind of coin that was exchangeable. This gets back to the whole idea, does money have to be exchangeable for something to be of value?”

So why is this important? The WaPo Factchecker Glenn Kessler gives Rand three of the much coveted Pinocchios, because: Rand Paul is a liar, d’uh. The Senator’s staff responds:

“In the jocular bantering with the host, Dr. Rand Paul mentioned ‘degree,’ but anyone who has read Dr. Paul’s official biography on his Web site can see that he was accepted early into one of the most prestigious medical schools in the country – Duke University School of Medicine,” said Brian Darling, Paul’s senior communications director. “Dr. Paul finished the requirements for medical school in two and one half years. While in college, Dr. Paul did study biology and English. He has no college degree and has a medical degree.”

We can now add his undergraduate degrees to his self-certification to practice medicine in Kentucky: the man is a fraud from soup to nuts, and has the most casual relationship with the truth that we’ve seen yet in the 2016 Goat Rodeo.
