Comedian Bill Burr goes off on ABC and the media for covering up for Jeffrey Epstein (who did not kill himself)
He notes that the media is very interested in "vetting" average citizens and comedians who tell wrongthink jokes, but strangely uninterested in "vetting" their rich friends banging underaged kids on Epstein's pedophile Paradise Island

The Simpsons knows the truth
This is fake, by the way. And yet-- real.
You wouldn't expect the zombie TV timewaster the Simpsons to be daring, funny, or relevant, would you?
Too hot for the Bulwark! Bulwark superstar nepot (nepots do favors for other nepots) Molly-Jong Fast writes of three "legendary" sexists, Mitch McConnell, Donald Trump, and Brett Kavanaugh
She writes at Medium. I guess not even Pierre Omidyar's money was enough to get the Bulwark Brain Trust to publish this one.
Stunning and Brave: NBC filming Zorro series, featuring a (wait for it...) gender-swapped female Zorro
Also, a new "Rocketeer" series starring a (wait for it...) gender-swapped black female Rocketeer
It's just such an original idea and it just keeps making money!!! I mean, sure, Batwahmen, Supergirl, and The Watchmen (The Wokemen) are tanking, but it's gotta work one of these days, right?
"Resident Scholar" at Koch Kindergarten AEI: Mollie Hemingway named the whistleblower in order to facilitate death threats and harassment
I know that many donors to AEI do support this bullshit -- but do they all? Maybe it's time for the smart money to leave.
And maybe it's time for Republicans to reflexively oppose anything this Koch Kindergarten pushes
Legendary hockey announcer Don Cherry (he's the Canoehead version of Vin Scully or Harry Carey) fired for.....opining that immigrants to Canada should buy a poppy to honor Canadian war dead.
“People ... come here, whatever it is, you love our way of life, you love our milk & honey. At least you can pay a couple of bucks for poppies .. These guys pay for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada. These guys pay the biggest price."

And yes, they fired him on Remembrance Day. Disgraceful. [Weirddave]
Cindy McCain: My dead husband John McCain would be "disgusted" by attacks on Joe Biden
Yes, he would have been. He was always very pro-Democrat -- lying to his voters his whole life -- and only stopped hiding it as death approached.
Too good to be true rumor? Rumor is that Rise of Soywalker test screenings were a complete disaster
Weighing against the rumor: We now know that ABC hunts down leakers and tries to ruin their lives

20 Sadrists Dead in Karbala After Americans Storm Mosque

On the other hand, there's this story, which features at least 20 deserving new inhabitants of Hell:

Fighting raged in the Iraqi holy city of Karbala yesterday, partly destroying a mosque and leaving bodies scattered around the market, as American soldiers killed at least 20 gunmen loyal to the radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.

The battle emphasised the determination of the US military to end a five-week Shia uprising.


...

A building behind the mosque was fired on, detonating a substantial arms cache, and US soldiers stormed the shattered mosque, chasing the insurgents into a hotel and alley.

By daylight half the mosque - which is located a few hundred yards from two of the holiest sites in Shia Islam, the shrines of the martyrs Hussein and Abbas - had been destroyed and several hotels were on fire.

Good. We're sick of their mosques being sanctuaries for murder and terror.

Previously American forces had kept out of Karbala and nearby Najaf, another holy city, after concerns that their presence could further inflame Iraqi fury, which is already outraged by the prisoner abuse photographs.

But it seems that in recent days negotiations with local tribal and religious leaders have convinced military leaders that many in the city would welcome efforts to evict Sadr's militiamen.

On Tuesday several hundred Iraqis marched in Najaf to demand Sadr's withdrawal and businessmen in both cities expressed frustration at the collapse of the local economy.

What a shock. Islamists maniacs with no skills whatsoever except chanting and seething cause collapse of local economy.

But then there's this:

... The coalition has made concessions.

On Tuesday, the American-appointed governor in Najaf suggested that US authorities were reconsidering their stated goal of "killing or capturing" Sadr. The US commander in the area said he was prepared to hand over security of the city to a locally raised security force that could include members of Sadr's Mahdi army.

We'd be angrier about this, except that we find ourselves caring less and less about which hateful racist maniacs in particular wind up running this shithole.

Sadr said yesterday: "The dissolution of the Mahdi army depends on the religious authorities. If they issue an edict to disband then we will disband."

Yeahp. We're on pins and needles waiting for all those moderate Muslim religious authorities to issue just such an edict.

June 30. We can't wait.

At this point, we're kinda hoping for civil war to break out on July 1.

Sure, it would destabilize the region and elect President John Forbes Kerry. But it would almost be worth it to see the looks on these people's faces.

By the Way... Why do these manaicas always assume that "72 virgins" means "72 female virgins"?

We're hoping it's actually 72 extremely-horny 14 year old boys with raging erections and a yen for hairy man-ass.
