Which image of Obama mugging for BuzzFeed’s cameras diminishes the presidency the most, ranked

Which image of Obama mugging for BuzzFeed’s cameras diminishes the presidency the most, ranked

Could the drive-by media’s scales finally be falling from their eyes?  One thing they noticed: the White House needs some Windex.

(This sequence with a selfie stick made the cut, but even it wasn’t considered the worst of this bad lot.)

Take flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th? What could possibly go wrong?

This is probably the only time you’ll see me link the Grauniad…this is kinda funny:

Friday 13th travellers take chance on flight 666 to HEL

Would you board flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th? For superstitious travellers, that might be tempting fate. But Finnair passengers on AY666 to Helsinki apparently were not too bothered. Friday’s flight was almost full.

“It has been quite a joke among the pilots,” said pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto before flying the Airbus A320 from Copenhagen to Helsinki. “I’m not a superstitious man. It’s only a coincidence for me.”

The daily flight AY666 from Copenhagen to Helsinki falls on Friday the 13th twice in 2013.

Ruth Buzzi Ginsburg Wasn’t ‘100 Percent Sober’ During State of the Union

Given who was giving this particular speech, I can’t say I’d blame her for trying to drown out the pain:

Ruth Buzzi Ginsburg Wasn’t ‘100 Percent Sober’ During State of the Union

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg admits to sharing some wine with her colleagues and not being “100 percent sober” for President Obama’s State of the Union address in January.

During Obama’s speech, which lasted just under an hour, many viewers on social media pointed out that the 81-year-old liberal justice appeared to be snoozing.

“The audience for the most part is awake, because they’re bobbing up and down, and we sit there, stone-faced, sober judges. But we’re not, at least I wasn’t, 100 percent sober,” Ginsburg said during a talk at George Washington University on Thursday night, according to a report by The Blaze.

“Name something a doctor might pull out of a person” was a recent question on Family Feud.  Some reasonable answers might be “a baby” (in a Cesarean section) or “car keys” (which some kids might swallow).  My title kinda gives it away if you’re a South Park fan…otherwise, you might be as stunned as Steve Harvey at the first answer that came to one contestant’s mind:

Doomberg channels his inner Kluxer

Not content to let the well-documented racism of the gun-grabbers remain in the past, he’s slapping a fresh coat of paint on it and bringing it into the present:

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg: Disarm Minorities

“[Former New York City Mayor, founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, financial backer of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and current jefe of Everytown for Gun Safety Michael] Bloomberg claimed that 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: male, minority and between the ages of 15 and 25,” aspentimes.com reports. “Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, he said.” Yup, you heard right: Bloomberg wants to disarm [blacks]. That’s because . . .

“These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” Bloomberg said. “They just don’t have any long-term focus or anything. It’s a joke to have a gun. It’s a joke to pull a trigger.”

Maybe so. But it’s not a joke to deny law-abiding [blacks] their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms because of criminal acts. And once again, the doyenne of civilian disarmament is pulling statistics out of his posterior parts.
