Purls of Wisdom?

From THE HILL:

Vanity Fair faced sharp criticism on Wednesday from supporters of Hillary Clinton after the magazine posted a video with “New Year’s resolutions” for the former presidential candidate that included retiring from politics.

A video posted on the magazine’s Twitter account Tuesday featured Vanity Fair writers suggesting new hobbies for the 2016 Democratic nominee, including “knitting” and taking “more photos in the woods.”

How can we miss you if you won’t go away?

Hey, kids, didja read the news today? POLITICO is reporting that   Eddie Munster  Paul Ryan is  scared shitless he will lose reelection in 2018  thinking about putting down his Speaker’s gavel and walking away from D.C. at the end of his term. If the tax cut bill that will enrich the uber-wealthy and destroy the middle class goes through, and he succeeds in decimating Medicare and Medicaid, then he will consider his job done. He wants to go home and jerk off to Ayn Rand documentaries  spend more time with his presidential aspirations  family. But wait, there’s more!

Lather, Rinse, Resign

Dear Senator Gillibrand,

Please consider this my letter of resignation from the Democratic Party. I’ve been a Democrat ever since I was old enough to vote. It is with a heavy heart that I must resign, because I cannot possibly meet the new purity standards.

Maybe her lawyer wrote it? Or her 2-year-old?

From The Daily Dot:

A tweet from White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders last year shortly before the presidential election has a bit of a different meaning after President Donald Trump blasted the FBI on Twitter over the weekend.

On Nov. 3 last year, Sanders wrote: “When you’re attacking FBI agents because you’re under criminal investigation, you’re losing,” presumably a jab at then-candidate Hillary Clinton amid the FBI making announcements regarding new findings in the investigation into her private email server.

…snip…

But with Trump’s numerous tweets attacking the FBI on Sunday, the tweet has gained some new life.

When you say self-serving, you’ve said it all!

From NBC News:

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., threw his support behind the Republican tax plan Thursday, boosting the bill’s chances of passage.

McCain said that while the Senate bill is “far from perfect,” he believes it will “enhance American competitiveness, boost the economy and provide long overdue tax relief for middle class families.”

The Maverick added, “But my wife Cindy inherited a Budweiser fortune, so fuck all that shit about working together and gimme those tax cuts!!”
