War on Dead Women. But she is still alive, only lingering in the concussion protocol. Nurse home will take good care of her while Bill Clinton has his third term.

As every story about Trump helps Trump, every story about Hillary, hurts Hillary.

The man was seen leaving the RJ parking lot in a maroon Toyota Prius bearing several Bernie Sanders campaign stickers.

You just can't make this stuff up, can you? No wonder stereotypes live on. They seem to so often be true.

Overreaction is a power play.

Too funny. Surprised he wasn't driving a Tesla.

No one can take a joke. Not newsworthy.

Hilarious story and just when you think the left has given up on humor.

From the article:

I am now officially laughing my ass off. I'm thinking Woody Allen as Fielding Mellish or Virgil Starkwell in Take the Money and Run

There is no plausible view of that event in which it could be deemed a threat for criminal purposes, even before Elonis adopted a subjective intent standard. Under Elonis, that conclusion is even more certain. The SS agent's statement that the prankster was subject to arrest is itself an attempt to chill protected speech. It bears remembering that the First Amendment is important because it protects speech that others deem objectionable, since unobjectionable speech rarely needs protecting.

"Hillary...?"

"Oh, no. Huma: this isn't about me lying again, is it?"

"Well, I just had question."

"Go ahead and ask."

"When I -- you know -- put the cucumbers up your ass, do you sometimes fake the orgasm?"

"Not if I'm drunk."

"But you're always drunk."

"So I think I answered your question."

"Then you DO have an orgasm when I put the cucumbers in your ass?"

"Sometimes, yes. Sometimes, though, it seems more like little seizures, like there is a blood clot in my brain."

"I worry about that, Hillary. Sometimes I worry that I'll have a cucumber in your ass and then you'll have a stroke and die. With the cucumber in our ass."

"And if that happens, Huma?"

"First I remove the cucumber, then I eat it to destroy the evidence."

"Good Girl, Huma! That's the kind of support I expect from you."

"Thank you, Hillary!"

"And what were my last words, Huma?"

"I have lived my Life only to help the American People."

"Good, good. Even if I have to die, I'll force those fuckers to finally love me..."

I am Laslo.

Obviously a joke but that didn't stop the Secret Service from getting thuggish. There seems to be nothing but Little Hitlers in government these days.

Bay Area Guy: Ha! I thought of Woody Allen characters, too!

Maybe the Secret Service can hire some midgets to follow-up on micro-aggressions. It would also liven up their bunga bunga parties.

Negros for black ops?

Threat/metaphor?

Threataphor!

PB said...

If it had been an obit for a Republican, nothing would have happened.

rhhardin said...

Newspapers all have Hillary obits at the ready in any case. It's just a business practice.

Turn them all in.

rhhardin said...

It's neither metaphor nor threat.

There's no pregnant term.

It's like saying Bernie is targeting Hillary, or a table has legs.

Mention fat ankles and you can get the table leg thing to stir in a slightly lifelike way.

tim in vermont said...

Maybe they read the results from Nevada?

ken in tx said...

Philippine Negritos for small black ops.

Ambrose said...

Secret Service must love a Las Vegas assignment - with all the hookers.

Titus said...

I did glutes yesterday and my ass is really hurting butt is hard as a rock.

No pain-no gain.

Total bubble butt here.

tits and glutes.

John said...

apparently still alive. Metaphorically speaking, of course. Eked out a win over Sanders

Since I have $100 riding on a bet that Hillary will win, which is essentially a bet that she is indeed the beast which cannot die, I fully expect Mrs. Clinton to linger on at least until the day of the elections. After that, the deluge.

James Pawlak said...

A prophecy???

But, only a stake through the area occupied by real people's hearts and burial at a crossroads with her head between her legs will do-the-job.
