In a Financial Times piece titled You can either savor the bacon or relish the hysteria Tim Hayward says, “your breakfast banger” is now in a category “with tobacco, alcohol, asbestos and radioactive materials such as uranium.”
Marco Rubio showed his latin cred by talking about his Cuban refugee parents. He also scored points for upward mobility by mentioning that his father was a bartender – if you consider running for president to be upwardly mobile.
Hillary and Huma headed for the border – of Iowa. They stopped their Scoobie Doo van in Maumee, Ohio and made sort of a secreted sortie to Chipotle. They showed up wearing sunglasses and went unrecognized.

Every year about this time there’s a pious politician public event called the National Prayer Breakfast.
Two years ago Dr. Ben Carson made his political debut there. The soft spoken brain surgeon insulted President Obama by ordering off the menu and choosing health savings accounts instead of ObamaCare. Now the good doctor is contemplating his own run for the president’s seat at the table.
At last year’s breakfast, after trying to force the Little Sisters of the Poor to buy birth control and morning after pills, Obama droned about religious freedom.
This year he made headlines providing the insight that Crusaders killed in the name of religion 1000 years ago. Not only that, Christians were responsible for Jim Crow.
One day YouTube star GloZell Green is thrashing in her milk filled bath tub bobbing for Fruit Loops. Next thing you know she’s interviewing the president of the United States.
The president is concerned that the dignity of his office has been gravely damaged – by Speaker Boehner.
John Boehner invited the Israeli Prime minister to speak to Congress. Bibi accepted. Obama blew his lid. Mouthpiece Josh Ernest claimed it was a violation of protocol for Congress to extend the invitation without the permission of the co-equal executive branch. Payback was promised. This was no mere violation of the Constitution.
John Kerry is especially miffed at being dissed by Netanyahu after all he’s done for him. Somebody, give him a hug. And, James Taylor, could you please come back and sing You got a Friend?
Meanwhile the president dissed the Main Stream Media. They’ve long been in the tank for him. Now he’s in the tub with GloZell. But it wasn’t all milk and Fruit Loops. GloZell upstaged the msm with a question about Cuba. She demanded to know how he could “justify negotiating with the guy who puts the dick in dictatorship”.
Western Water Wars went wild last week when young Dallas Swonger peed in an Oregon reservoir and forgot to flush.
Thanks to the Water Bureau’s quick thinking response, the three parts per billion of Swonger effluent were safely removed by draining 38 million gallons of water. No deaths or injuries were reported.
Portland City Commissioner Nick Fish – yes that’s his real name – humbly accepted credit for the life saving action:
“I didn’t have a choice. I don’t have the luxury of slicing it too thin when there’s a potential risk, however small, to public health,” he said. “Frankly, it’s one of those calls where you know you’re likely to be criticized no matter what. The professionals who report to me all said, ‘Dump the water. Don’t take any chances.’ It’s the conservative but correct call.”
