Wes Pruden, Washington Times editor and columnist, dies at 83
Thanks to "Ha" for alerting me. (And no, that's not any kind of insult to Pruden; "Ha" is the name he always goes by. A bit awkward in this context but it is just his screen-name.)
LOL reply to the sanctimonious David French, bewailing the country's divisions: "O! Why is the country so divided!?" shrieked the Russia Truther.
Liberal atheist AllahPundit just can't stop attacking Christians
It's "racist" to attack any group you don't belong to, but the liberal atheist AllahPundit attacks conservative Christians, accusing them of Godcrime, four or five times per week
It's also cool that he's quoting Real TruCon Conservatives like MSNBC flunky Michael Steele, too
It's like AllahPundit is saying Christians aren't real Americans and should go back to their own countries, except he says it 5 days a week

I'm avoiding the full pile on, because I understand this person is nice and personally loyal, but a Leading NeverTrumper and Fusion GPS conspiracy theory promoter just tweeted, about Stevens' death: Man, the confirmation hearings over John Paul Stevens' replacement is going to be pure fire!
This wouldn't be such a big deal except we keep being told by this crew that they're the Smart Ones who Really Understand Politics. In fact, they're almost all unaccomplished and a bit dim. They mistake "Famous among a tiny subculture addicted to Twitter" for actually famous. Or actually accomplished.
A friend cracks: "Maybe she got this wrong because she was reading from Fusion GPS' dossier on Stevens."
You know, people involved in writing and communications might want to consider that Twitter Is Not Their Friend. It encourages lazy writing and thoughtless #HotTakes. Why bother checking to see the last decade that Stevens worked as a justice when precious seconds for getting in your #EarlyHotTake are slipping away!

Here's a topic: Can you think of bands that seemed to get a lot of promotion in movies and tv but didn't go anywhere? I seem to remember David Johannson (especially in his "Buster Poindexter" persona/act) getting a lot of tv/movie push and not being very good; Oingo Boingo too. (Danny Elfman eventually made it as a composer, but not as a rocknroll front man.)

Baseball Cuck is, as usual, convinced he is smarter than everyone else in the world, despite continents of evidence to the contrary
The ability of the NeverTrump pseudo-intellectuals to maintain such passionate belief in their intellectual supremacy despite overwhelming evidence that they are wrong about literally everything is... how do I say it? ... rather Millennial in its delusional self-regard, no?

Flashback: Glenn Reynolds on How David Brooks Gave Us Donald Trump
" It's clear that [Brooks would] like a social/political revolution that was more refined, better-mannered, more focused on the Constitution and, well, more bourgeois as opposed to in-your-face and working class.
The thing is, we had that movement. It was the Tea Party movement...
Yet the tea party movement was smeared as racist, denounced as fascist, harassed with impunity by the IRS and generally treated with contempt by the political establishment and by pundits like Brooks, who declared "I'm not a fan of this movement." After handing the GOP big legislative victories in 2010 and 2014, it was largely betrayed by the Republicans in Congress, who broke their promises to shrink government and block Obama's initiatives.
When politeness and orderliness are met with contempt and betrayal, do not be surprised if the response is something less polite, and less orderly.
Surprising exactly no one, David French once again teams up with the leftwing Vox's leftwing "reporter" on "The GOP, the right, and white supremacy" to smear his enemies, and Jonah Goldberg recommends the leftwing Vox "reporter's" thread to his Twitter following
Once again, they attempt to get an insult they don't like -- "cuck" -- censored, claiming it is only about black men having sex with white wives. The cuck kink isn't limited to black-on-white cucking -- it's a term oblivious to race, and refers only to weakness and submissiveness -- but they keep saying it is entirely racial, contrary to the dictionary definition and contrary to a cursory perusal of the offerings in this category on Xhamster. Just to falsely tar their opponents as "racist" for daring to criticize them. Same as their liberal friends do, oddly enough!
Or maybe I'm too cynical. Maybe they're not deliberately misrepresenting "cuck" porn as exclusively black and white; perhaps they're just prisoners of their own experience and their own kinks, and that's just their personal favorite type of cuck pornography.
I don't know. What I do know is that cucks come in all colors and shapes. Well, one shape, mostly -- Eggs With Legs. But again, it's not exclusive to that.
The silly little brokebrain bitch David French spends more time damseling for himself on Twitter, asking his beta orbiters to protect him, than he spends on his actual job(s). Shouldn't he at least put up a Patreon with "nude and lewd" pictures of himself on offer if he's going to keep begging his beta orbiters to White Knight for him? Shouldn't his Beta Brigade get some sexy boudoir shots for their services?

Actually, given that these fine gentlemen are now making The Conservative Case for Vox, why bother with NR and the much, much anticipated Hayes/Goldberg newsletter -- why not just patronize Vox, the site that they're such great fans of? Cut out the middleman -- the Lucky Pierre -- I say.

Fed: Inflation Tame, Hiring Strong

Bear in mind that the true predictor of inflationary trends strips out the frequently-volatile price of food, fuel, and cowbells:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. jobs picture showed signs of improvement in April and May, the Federal Reserve (news - web sites) said on Wednesday, as potentially worrisome wage pressures and consumer prices appeared tame.


"Reports from the Federal Reserve Banks indicate that economic activity in April and May continued to expand across the nation," the Fed said in its "beige book" report, an anecdotal look at the U.S. economy as seen through the eyes of its 12 regional banks.


"Employment activity continued to improve, with hiring increasing at a faster pace in most districts; meanwhile, wages and salaries experienced little or muted upward pressures," the Fed said.

"Many Reserve Banks reported modest increases in consumer prices, but most districts noted rising prices of inputs, especially energy-related products, building materials, and steel."

Steel. The lifeblood of the cowbell industry.

Key quote:

"Employment activity continued to improve, with hiring increasing at a faster pace in most districts."

That means we're looking for better than 300,000 jobs per month down the road.

300,000 jobs per month -- if it continues long enough -- means that Bush will actually create net jobs by November.

It also means that he'll be creating jobs at a much faster pace than the 10 million in four years promised by Kerry.

Vote for John Kerry

He promises to create fewer jobs than his opponent.

Rush Limbaugh notes that Bill Schneider has finally scooped the rest of the media on "the big secret" that the economy is actually doing "very well."

Blaster links that, plus he discovers that even two future Kerry-endorsers -- the Washington Post and Andrew "Flip" Sullivan -- have figured out that the economy is roaring.

Again, I'm unable to afford any cowbells at this time. However, I can offer a TOPPS trading card of C3PO sporting an erection:

Hey...! "Didn't you already do those last two jokes like three months ago?"

I believe in recycling. Don't you? Give me a break. How much mileage has Wonkette gotten out of the words "butt" and "sex"?
