The bigger they are, the harder they fall, eh?
This was one of my favorite pieces in the weekly news roundup, so I wanted to give it some primacy of place. Honestly, this couldn’t happen to a more deserving cackling harpy. Kamala “Heels-Up” Harris is probably the dumbest, least competent person to ever be a heartbeat away from the Imperial Mansion, and considering that this is a position previously held by Andrew Johnson and Al Gore, that’s really saying something.
It’s going to be interesting to see how they squeeze her out before the 2024 campaign season gets going in earnest, because you know sure as hell old Joe isn’t going to make it to another term. Seriously – are these people the best the Democrats have?
Anyway, with that out of the way…
On To the Links!
Dear President Trump: Thank you, thank you, thank you for sparing us from having to live through four years of this bitter, besotted, corrupt, wicked old harridan in the Imperial Mansion.
What should Democrats do about rising inflation? Resign.
And the money printer goes brrrrrrr.
Dinosaurs may have been colorful. That’s reasonable, as living dinosaurs – birds – are often colorful.
Remind me again which political party has been running Chicago since the Depression?
How about just getting the government out of the way of the economy altogether? Honestly, every time government interferes they make things worse.

“Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”
Colorado Gov. Polis finds an acorn.
Cold, dark and hungry – that’s what life will be like if the Dems get their way.
I’ve never read even one word of Harry Potter and never will, but I confess to liking J.K. Rowling these days.
He should, but he won’t, and nobody in the legacy media will ask.
Inflation continues to break records.

This Week’s Cultural Edification:
Since last week we mentioned the Sanford Townsend Band opening for Melanie, here is the lady herself. Melanie (full name Melanie Safka) was a folk/pop singer who had a fair following in the early Seventies. She had a fun, light, airy style and was easy to listen to.
Her best-known song was Brand New Key, from her 1971 album Gather Me. Imagine a lady singer today using the line “…some people say I’ve done all right for a girl?” Brand New Key is a fun little tune you don’t have to take too seriously. Enjoy.
