Something stinks in Nebraska!

From SPLINTER:

This week, what began as an innocent Facebook like ended with Ari Kohen, an associate professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, filing a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics against Republican Rep. Jeff Fortenberry’s Chief of Staff for threatening him over the phone.

It all started when Kohen liked a Facebook post featuring a hilariously defaced campaign sign in which Fortenberry was given googly eyes and his name changed to “Fartenberry.” Kohen was one of 130 people who liked the post.

Well, I’ll be a flying monkey’s uncle!

From NBC News:

President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, said Wednesday that any meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin would be put off until 2019 because of special counsel Robert Mueller’s “witch hunt.”

Witch hunt? Why, that can only mean one thing!

You gonna eat with that lying mouth?

From The Washington Post:

Stephanie Wilkinson was at home Friday evening — nearly 200 miles from the White House — when the choice presented itself.

Her phone rang about 8 p.m. It was the chef at the Red Hen, the tiny farm-to-table restaurant that she co-owned just off Main Street in Lexington, Va.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her.

Twitler Über Alles

Washington (CNN) Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna [Romney] McDaniel is attempting to clarify a tweet she sent on Wednesday that warned anyone who does not supports President Donald Trump’s agenda “will be making a mistake.”

“Complacency is our enemy. Anyone that does not embrace the @realDonaldTrump agenda of making America great again will be making a mistake,” McDaniel tweeted Wednesday night.

Where shopping is no longer a pleasure

Some Floriduhhh news, from The Buzz at the Tampa Bay Times:

The Florida supermarket giant Publix has given more money to Adam Putnam’s gubernatorial bid than any other candidate since at least 1995 and likely for the entirety of the company’s history.

Publix, the heirs to the company’s founder and its current and former leaders have given Putnam $670,000 in the last three years — or enough money to buy 74,527 chicken tender subs.

I thought they might want to update their logo.

Even Sergei Prokofiev was a Russian!

From npr:

The book that created a rift between President Trump and his former campaign chief executive and adviser Steve Bannon hit the shelves Friday morning, ahead of the original Tuesday release date, despite the president’s threat to block its publication.

Michael Wolff, author of Fire and Fury: Inside The Trump White House, told NPR’s Kelly McEvers that he “100 percent” stands behind his reporting, which the White House and some of the book’s subjects have sharply criticized.

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.”
