File Under “W” For Weird

Man has 82 tattoos of Julia Roberts on his body

Now – finally – we know the answer to the burning question, “What would Julia Roberts look like if she was desperately in need of a shave?”

How To Prepare For A Meeting With Meghan McCain

Meghan McCain is rather notoriously fixated on her breasts and other people’s reactions to them. In the spirit of public service, I believe I’ve found the ideal attire for any guy who’s scheduled to meet with Ms. McCain for any reason.

This t-shirt would seem to be perfect for any occasion!

Out Of This World

Dan Riehl wonders if today’s Democrat leaders might not be psychotic. He makes a good case for it and I’ll admit to having wondered myself, over the course of the last year, if they were delusional to the point where a prolonged vacation at Shady Acres “for their own protection” would be a prudent course of action.

Free Botox for all!

Still, I find myself leaning to the “alternate universe” theory. In this theory, an anomaly in the space-time continuum has caused our Democrat leaders to be replaced with their counterparts from an alternate universe where Capitalism is a failed experiment and Socialism a proven winner. Every person on the face of Alternate-Earth has access to the best health care ever and there’s a unicorn in every garage! Oh, and Botox is free! Doesn’t that explain so much?

Update 1: And doesn’t this just make you take my theory a little more seriously? (H/T @brooksbayne)

Same Person Or Separated At Birth?

Rep. Rosa De Lauro and the incomparable Spock

Has anyone ever seen these two in the same place at the same time? Just sayin’.

A Piece Of Advice For The President

I was wrong, as is made obvious from these photographs. Read more details here. My apologies to President Obama. This time.

“We’re going to raise the bar for all our students and take bigger steps toward closing the achievement gap”

Who says this kind of stuff to sixth graders, anyway?

That would be our President, who chose to announce his proposal to expand (read that “spend more money…lots of it”) his Race to the Top initiative at a Falls Church, Virginia, elementary school.

Here’s my tip for the President: If  you must have children as a backdrop for your photo op, do them a kindness and try not to bore them to death in the process.

Update 1: TOTUS accompanied POTUS to the elementary school, along with the LOTUS (Lectern of the United States).

Speaking of which, do you think Mitch McConnell and Patty Murray may have been separated at birth?
