Bad news: I think we're stuck with Boebert

According to Article I, Section 5, second paragraph of the US Constitution, it requires a two-thirds majority of the house of Congress the member is a part of, to expel a Member from Congress.

The only feasible way I can see to get rid of her is to make Congress so un-fun she quits on her own. Assign her to one boring committee and no others, refuse to take up her bills and don't let her bring her gun into the building.

The US Army Band's missing-man tribute to Neil Peart

This is Rush's "Time Stand Still" played as a ballad, with no drum part.

I found a much better prison than Gitmo to send the insurrectionists

USP Thomson is a high security federal penitentiary in Illinois, where it is currently 33 degrees and raining. The weather in Cuba is way too nice.

Dishwasher safety instruction that almost goes without saying

Miele (a German brand of appliances) includes this warning in their instruction manuals:

"Reliable and safe operation of this dishwasher can only be assured if it has been connected to the power supply."

Because, apparently, they don't work so well with the hand crank.

Why hasn't one Democrat pointed out the obvious?

This is what the Constitution says about appointing electors:

Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.

The Constitution is very clear: the legislatures of the states are allowed to set up their own election systems. If the legislatures of the states want their Secretaries of State, or their Governors, or some randomly-chosen wino off Skid Row, to approve the results of the election, it's totally legal.

Hence, the Arizona objection is moot and so are the objections to the rest of the states' electoral slates.

What, exactly, is "Trump media"?

This is where Trump heard about the supposedly defective Georgia election.

Is this media the Trump-aligned media (OANN, Newsmax and Epoch Times), or just something his staff invented to make him happy?

Gohmert's lawsuit has been dismissed


From the Order of Dismissal:

The problem for Plaintiffs here is that they lack standing. Plaintiff Louie Gohmert, the United States Representative for Texas's First Congressional District, alleges at most an institutional injury to the House of Representatives. Under well-settled Supreme Court authority, that is insufficient to support standing.

The other Plaintiffs, the slate of Republican Presidential Electors for the State of Arizona, allege an injury that is not fairly traceable to the Defendant, the Vice President of the United States, and is unlikely to be redressed by the requested relief.

Accordingly, as explained below, the Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over this case and must dismiss the action.

Unfortunately, the case was dismissed without prejudice, leaving Gohmert and Company free to go judge-shopping before the 6th.

The Volvo seat belt commercial sounds very, very familiar

This is Volvo's commercial announcing their new safety features.


In it, they read off some of the complaints the public and the media had in the 1950s when Volvo introduced the now-standard three-point seat belt...and if you didn't know it was a commercial about seat belts, you'd swear the complaints were from antimaskers.

The Wisconsin pharmacist who destroyed 570 COVID vaccine doses has been arrested


"Grafton detectives indicate that the individual knew the spoiled vaccinations would be useless and that people who received the vaccinations would think they had been vaccinated against the virus when in fact they were not," police said in a statement to WISN 12.

They're not releasing his name until formal charges have been filed.

570 doses of COVID vaccine intentionally destroyed by hospital employee


GRAFTON, Wis. The FBI and the Food & Drug Administration are investigating the person who left 57 vials of the Moderna vaccine out of a pharmacy refrigerator at Aurora Medical Center-Grafton.

Advocate Aurora Health now says it was an intentional act.

After an internal investigation, it was first believed to be human error.

The person in question Wednesday admitted they intentionally removed the vaccine from refrigeration.

The employee has been fired.
