Rule 5 Sunday: Happy New Year!

– compiled by Wombat-socho Welcome to the first Rule 5 post of the New Year, where we take a break from crime and politics (BIRM) and instead, as Lewis Grizzard once put it, enjoy the glory of God’s creation. For those of you perusing Rule 5 Sunday for the first time, keep in mind that […]

How About: “It Was A Godforsaken Lie”

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 […]

Signs Of Pending Apocalypse: DewItos

by Smitty “That sounds like part of a balanced meal,” said no nutritionist. Ever. Good Sweet Lord, Pepsi Is Actually Testing A Doritos-Flavored Mountain Dew — BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) November 8, 2014

If Only We’d Smaller Political Units Than Congress. We’d Need A Lot, Though, Perhaps As Many As We’ve States.

by Smitty I get a kick out of the people getting all fretty about expanding the House, the size of which has been frozen in time since 1910, emphasis mine: I tend to rebel against the idea of adding even more members of Congress. Having nearly 700 of them squabbling over everything from major national […]

I’ll Go With “Troll Of The Century”

by Smitty I mean, there is using someone else’s name to prove a point about voter fraud, but then there is going after Snidely Whiplash himself: We got offered Eric Holder’s ballot. Perhaps we should get offered @donnabrazile ballot. Where does Donna vote? DC? — James O’Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) October 30, 2014 In my opinion, […]

The Redskins Should Hire Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly As A Spokesman

by Smitty We live in the age of Tedious Lefty Assault (TLA). If it isn’t the #WarOnWomen, our self-appointed elite are on our cases about Global Anthropogenic Climate Disruption Change Warming, or even more piffle-icious crap like the WarOnTheRedskins. I guess it’s easier than doing honest economic reporting. So the President of the Navajo Nation […]

Remember A Couple Of Months Ago, When Weather Wasn’t Climate?

by Smitty “Yuhv. Got. Ta. Buh. Leeve!“: “We want to clear up the huge amounts of confusion around how climate change is influencing the weather, in both directions. For example, the typhoon in the Philippines that dominated the UN climate change talks in Warsaw last November and that many people put down to climate change […]
