It’s a Blog Mitzvah!

I realized the other day that February 17, 2007 was the very first post on Hysterical Raisins. Those were the pre-Photoshop days of The Raisin, and the MS Paint image is embarrassing when I look at it today. So, kids, in honor of The Raisin’s 13th birthday (its blog mitzvah!), I thought I would recreate and update the very first poster. I couldn’t find the same image, but I did find the cover of the DVD box.

Picture this!

From Mediaite:

Weekend Today anchor Kristen Welker pressed Pam Bondi, a member of President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense, on her and other Trump allies’ documented links to Lev Parnas.

“So now we have multiple pictures of President Trump with Lev Parnas, his family members with Lev Parnas, his top associates – you’re even in one of the photos.It also includes an electronic calendar entry of a breakfast meeting with President Trump just days before Parnas was arrested,” Welker noted Saturday, referring to a trove of information released about Parnas, who worked heavily with Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani in Ukraine and has provided new evidence to the House about the Ukraine scandal.

Aha! How can you pose for a picture with someone and say you don’t…sonuvabitch!!!

Raisin’ Hell

From philly.com:

It lacks whiskers, tail, and claws, but bristles with ambition and bite:

The woolen, two-cat-ear headgear has fast become the feline symbol of feminine protest for thousands headed to the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday. Project leaders envision a sea of pink hats as the perfect way to tweak President-elect Donald Trump over his infamous remark about grabbing women by their . . . you know what.

Dear Raisinettes

I know that a lot of you are wondering where I’ve been, and I thank you for the many emails I received and apologize for not replying to all of them.  There were and are a few reasons for my long absence.  My computer crapped out, and though my son built me a new one, I’ve so far been unable to retrieve all of my image files from the old hard drive.  There’s also the matter of the tendonitis in my hand that continues to plague me.
