Friday Fiction: 100 Word Challenge

by Smitty “Is that you, Grandma?” asked Alisha. They poured tea and pored over photos. “Yes, I couldn’t have been more than 7 at the time.” “What kind of bird are you holding?” “Been 80 years.

by Smitty These people are so ridiculous: According to pundits, the Democratic Party overplayed the “war on women” narrative in the 2014 midterm election, and this helped the GOP win key Senate and gubernatorial races, including in states carried easily by Obama in 2012. In that election, the birth control mandate in the Affordable Care […]

New Word: “Grubado”

by Smitty Instapundit was noting that ‘gruber‘ is now a verb. Surely, though, the pile of hooey that is ObamaCare has room for a little more coinage as the ooze flows about, engulfing Progressive dreams in fetid sludge. Grubado: noun. A portmanteau of ‘Gruber’ and ‘bravado’, this is that special panache with which a sociopath […]
