flipped the bird at congress

William McGurn says in the in the WSJ that FBI Director Christopher Wray flipped the bird at Congress. Wray refused to provide information about applications for  FISA warrants used to spy on Americans.

He says it’s classified information. And besides, he’s preparing a report for the Inspector General.

Congress can wait.

 

Cartoon Magazine Publisher Hugh Hefner Dies

cartoon magazine publisher hugh hefner Hugh Hefner was a frustrated cartoonist, so he pursued other interests and founded Playboy magazine.

You probably only read Playboy for the fiction. But I read it for the cartoons. Hefner chose the cartoons for each issue.

I think he also chose the other pictures that appeared in his magazine. And he developed the “Playboy Philosophy” to help him with that task.

But the world of internet porn and political correctness made things difficult for Playboy. An obit in The Atlantic argues that what Playboy offered was “sanitized – Hefner wanted the centerfolds to exude clean-cut charm rather than exotic allure.”

What it should have offered was more cartoons.

Hef was 91 when he died on Wednesday.

Republican Leaders

republican leaders

Republican leaders told President Trump they had a plan to get things done in Congress. They didn’t. And the swamp remains.

So Trump made a deal with Chuck Schumer to raise the debt ceiling and free up billions for hurricane victims. Now he’s looking at Schumer for more deals.

Republican Leaders

Here’s what Rich Lowry has to say about that:

The idea that Trump, who has been too inept to help his own party in Congress, will team up with perhaps the most deviously shrewd Democrat in the country and come out on top is difficult to credit. Schumer will milk Trump for whatever he can get — every tactical advantage, every bit of new spending — so long as he doesn’t give away anything important and doesn’t materially boost Trump’s political standing.

National Review’s Jonathan Tobin thinks the Republican party means nothing to Trump. Maybe for good reason:

Trump is unbound by any loyalty to the party that nominated him or to men such as House speaker Paul Ryan and Senator Mitch McConnell. To the contrary, he regards them as foes in a cold war against a political establishment he neither likes nor trusts.
