Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

OK, there’s a funny and accurate bit in this bit of commentary:

Kamala Harris isn’t disliked because she’s a non-white woman; Kamala Harris was chosen as vice president because she’s a non-white woman, and she’s disliked because she has nothing to recommend her beyond those facts. In the highest of high dudgeon, her defenders will propose that this is Joe Biden’s fault, for not “using” Harris correctly in her role. But this too is unjust. In truth, there is no good way to “use” Kamala Harris, because Kamala Harris is a talentless mediocrity whose only political flair is for making things worse than they were before she arrived(Emphasis added by me.)

Boy howdy, ain’t that the truth.

But what do you expect from a VP selected by a lifelong mediocrity, serial plagiarizer, liar and now dementia-ridden C-lister?  And she was selected, honestly, because she has brown skin and a vagina, and no relevant qualifications?  We have achieved kakistocracy, True Believers, and the two Janus-like faces it wears are those of President “Groper” Joe Biden and Kamala “Heels-Up” Harris.

And so…

On To the Links!

This guy gets it.

People are buying guns, primary reason cited is self-defense.  No shit.

Let them eat cake.

This time for sure!

Lungfish cocoons are alive.  Well, sure, but are they any good to eat?

We can hope.  After all, the GOP is driving us off the fiscal cliff a little slower than the Dems.

No shit, Sherlock.

For once, justice was served – not guilty on all counts!

Can Democrats Avoid Electoral Disaster in 2022?  Probably not – they’re stuck on stupid.

Fake President, fake White House.

Why the hell was this guy on the street?

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.

Plant-based meat is better for the planet?  Fuck that.

It’s not just us – the Global Debt Trap.

This Week’s Cultural Edification:

There are some artists out there whose politics I can’t abide, but still I listen to their work now and then, because brains and talent don’t necessarily go hand in hand.  A good example would be the trio of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash.

Leftists the three of them, but (at least recently) they haven’t been as obnoxiously vocal as some, seemingly content to “shut up and sing.”  I like a lot of their work, but my favorite is their 1982 tune Southern Cross.  Here is that tune; enjoy.
