Twitter rumors fly that Turkey's Islamist tyrant Erdogan is dead
Just rumors. Wonderful, wonderful rumors. Here's a long distance dedication from Dope called Die, M***erf****er, Die!
The American "news" media, not Russian Bots and not Trump, is responsible for sowing divisions and hatred in America, according to left-leaning centrist Tim Pool
I mention this because a mere 15 years ago, only ideologically engaged conservatives hated the media. Now everyone does.
Normies -- more or less apolitical, only-vote-in-presidential-elections normies -- now routinely roll their eyes at mention of the media. That's big.
Is Neil deGrasse Tyson really this dumb? [CBD]
The Inventor Who Fought To Get Black Box Flight Recorders Into Every Plane, and of all the resistance he encountered along the way. [dri]
Mark Dice dubs Little Brian Stelter on the White House social media summit
Little Brian Stelter's ratings have fallen 42%. I'm afraid for Mark Dice -- what's he gonna do when Tater gets shitcanned? Dice needs to start promoting Reliable Sources.
David Steinberg: The Washington Examiner stole the Omar story we had broken, without crediting us, and when I complained, they said we should just be happy that someone gave the story some coverage
Now former Babe.net writer Tiana Lowe says she merely salvaged the story from the "alt-right hacks" who had tainted it with their Nazi associations
Some take issue with this self-serving claim
It takes some cheek to imply that David Steinberg and the Powerline Guys, who are lawyers, are "alt-right hacks" who needed to have their story stolen from them -- without so much as a hat-tip! -- for the Greater Good. And now insults are piled on them to justify this.
I can't believe that an august publication like the Washington Examiner, which employs Seth Mandel, who took money too plant pro-Malaysia stories without disclosing this scheme to his readers, would countenance any kind of ethically-dubious behavior.
Report that a third tanker has been hijacked... I hear it's a Hong Kong ship. Also hearing that the British-owned ship (not the British flagged, Swedish owned ship) has been released with a "warning." So maybe they're picking on countries like Norway and Sweden that can't take the fight to them.
A friend says: "I wonder what course of action McCain would call for if he were still alive."
I'd like to think that McCain would begin an affair with his best friend's wife and break up that marriage and then divorce his cancer-ridden wife. But that's just me, I'm an incorrigible romantic!
Someone just chided me: "Don’t make jokes during the funeral. Have some taste."
Iran's hijacking British ships. Earlier they hijacked a Marshall Islands flagged ship (a US territory). But not German or French ships yet. I wonder if they're trying to split the response of the European bloc, hoping that France and Germany will continue their old support of Iran and old pattern of giving the finger to their ostensible US/UK allies.
50 years ago, Muhammed Ali wrote a letter to the parents of Mary Jo Kopechne.“Dear Mr. Kopechne, assert yourself in the interests of the good name of your daughter. Get yourself a good lawyer and sue that no good son of a bitch, Edward M. Kennedy, for everything he’s got,” [J.J. Sefton]
President of the American Vaping Association is a fan of the ONT and Misanthropic Humanitarian
Well, he's a fan of the ONT quoting him. Still -- I think that's something!
Can we start quoting Demi Rose, fellas? AIM HIGHER
Get the fainting couch for Little Benny Shapiro!
Oh wait, don't bother getting it; he's not troubled by this at all, strangely enough
Thanks to Deep State is in Deep Shit

Drudge Catches Cowbell Fever; Prognosis Grim

What's this? A particularly nasty triple-dose of cowbell hits Matt Drudge right in his upper left-hand corner:

* Consumer prices/inflation down.

* Factory utilization now the highest since April 2001.

* And housing starts surge by 8.3%.

You'd better put some penicillin on that, Drudge. Better yet, just let the Cowbell Fever spread and fester, and succumb to its madness.

Triple-sized cowbell for triple cowbell news:


Christopher Walken is also a longtime Cowbell Fever Survivor.

Update: Senator Philabuster thinks it would be a good idea to list the top ten cowbell songs of all time. I think it's a good idea too, but apart from Don't Fear the Reaper and Theme From Simon & Simon, I don't really know too many cowbell-friendly songs.

If you know some cowbell-intensive tunes, let me know in the comments below. I'll put them into some sort of definitive list when I have at least ten good ones.

One point: The songs should be fairly well known; try not to be too obscurist. Don't nominate a bootleg studio alternate master of The Band in which a microphone is accidentally dropped on to an unused cowbell, nor a Japanese import disco remix of Rush's Red Barcetta in which an "electronic cowbell-like effect" can be heard above the screech of Godzilla's radioactive roar.

I mean, this isn't A Small Victory. Maybe there is some good cowbell on that Marshall Tucker Band cover of Faith No More's Epic, but seriously, have more than eight people heard it?

Actually, you can nominate songs like that all you like. They're just not going to make it to the list.

Country songs are sort of obscure to me, but I'll gladly put a couple of them on the list. I probably will just have to take your word for it that they do in fact contain prominent cowbell.

Anyway, if you want to help out, thanks. It's appreciated.
