One of the true Grande Dames has left the stage:
And now here’s Stritch doing the cast recording, with her own commentary:
She was harder on herself than she ever was on anyone else (and she was a ROYAL. PAIN. IN. THE. ASS), and maybe that’s why she is a Broadway Legend? I’ll go with yes.
There will be a curtain call in heaven tonight, and she will be missed.
(NYTimes covers her career so very well.)
In related news, has anyone seen Liz Cheney lately?
Wow, Arizonastan gubinatorial candidate Andrew Thomas stood up to the ‘mos lobbyist (we need names and dates) and stopped the Jeb’s little brown ones from coming over the border. Single-handedly! Bet he can paint an entire apartment in a single afternoon! Two Coats!
That’s Kathy Perkins who heads up some sort of Moms With Guns organization, giving the GSA the best lesson in sales: pack heat, sales will go way, way up.
Honest-to-Blog these ammosexuals are absolutely repellant. What kind of message does that give little kids? There is zero chance I would buy even my much-loved Mystic Mints from a sprout with lethal force mother behind them.
That is the always charming American Family host Sandy Rios implying that refugee children will bring, you know, a black plague-like death in massive numbers heretofore unknown to modern America.
Canadian-born latino and immigrant-hating southern white supremacist Senator Ted Cruz is (un)surprisingly looking at exploiting the immigrant children crisis for his own political purposes:
The conservative firebrand believes that any bill to deal with the unaccompanied migrant children at the border must also include language to stop a 2012 immigration directive from President Barack Obama — a proposal unlikely to go anywhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
That’s a much tougher approach than the one being sought by Cruz’s fellow Texans — GOP Sen. John Cornyn and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar — who would leave the directive alone. Instead, they would toughen a 2008 human trafficking law while speeding up immigration proceedings and authorizing 40 more judges to handle the cases. The Obama administration has expressed openness to revisiting the 2008 law, and the Texans’ plan could be included in a spending measure that will soon be considered by the GOP-controlled House.
Even given all that, I don’t think Cruz is planning on running for Preznint—that would require actual work—he’s just another grifter.
Free-range conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck promotes a charter school that uses happy-slaves Civil War fabulism as a text book:
It’s a longish clip but Beck is at the peak of his midseason form.
I don’t know if this is a real film or not, but I suspect not. Anyway, it alleges to be infrared footage of someone farting, and now I understand the slang for it: crop dusting.
Anyway, sorry for the light posting. I am trying to get my house in California ready to sell, and so the days are long and kinda exhausting (between hauling crap away and talking crap to potential real estate listing agents).
Honestly, Steve Stockman thinks that more (children? refugees?) are crossing the border than the Allied Forces sent into France in WW2? What does it matter, when he calls the refugee children fleeing their dangerous and lawless lands an invasion.

Breaking news: 63% of Mississippi isn’t totally racist!
A new Public Policy Polling survey found that 37 percent of Republicans who voted in the Mississippi primary runoff election between incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) and state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) said they would back the Confederate side if there was another Civil War.
So more than one third of Mississippians would betray the country? They’re so patriotic.
