The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg"So if the reason that all of those CNN stories that have blown up in their smug faces were due to innocent, could-have-happened-to-anyone reporting errors, you'd think that some number of them would be in Trump's favor. If these errors were truly random, I mean. Then you'd expect up to half of the errors would work to Trump's advantage. But the actual number is, get this, zero. Isn't that odd? And if reporters were such fearlessly unbiased champions of the truth that they like to portray themselves as, you'd think at least one of them would be questioning this weird statistical anomaly. But, not to worry. I'm sure they'll get around to asking these questions any day now."

To this, I would add:

--Character is what you do when no one else is watching.


And Speaking of Character:

kennedy conyers 72.jpg

At first I thought this was a remarkably good PhotoShop, but apparently, it's real, but the proposed campaign never got off the ground. I think you all will appreciate the aggressively neutral description of why a Ted Kennedy candidacy was a non-starter:

Ted Kennedy was a front-runner for the 1972 election, but in 1969 he got into a car accident, which killed a campaign worker, and fled the scene without contacting the police.

( *facepalm* )

"He got into a car accident." No, you imbecile, he drunk-drove off Chappaquiddick Bridge into the creek. The campaign worker, whose name you couldn't be bothered to mention, was Mary Jo Kopechne, and she wasn't killed by the accident itself, but by Brave Sir Teddy running away and leaving her to die in the submerged car. This description misses being an outright lie by only a small fraction. It's disgusting that even now, decades later, people are willing to cover for those Kennedy vermin.

And what kind of a man would leave a woman in a submerged car and not tell anyone for 8 hours? Did he want to make sure she was dead?
