Sunday funnies

I used to think these things were silly, but that was before I understood the Tao of the Man Bun...



I hear that it's been pretty hot in Arizona; I think this is why...



Only partly psychic...



I'll have some Belgian waffles and an order of crickets, please.

No way; I've read The Turn of the Screw (H/T to Mrs. Paco).

Art or football? Your call (H/T: Captain Heinrichs)...



And now, an important announcement on mental health (H/T to DoublePlusUndead, which is rapidly becoming the best vantage point from which to observe the collapse of our civilization).

Democrats know enough to stay out of the rain

Which, according to Rachel Maddow, cost them the congressional election in Georgia.

Australian election

No, no, not for the parliament or senate or tribal council, whatever it is they have over there. It's time for the Annual Frightbat Election. Tim Blair looks over the field (or perhaps "herd" is the mot juste).

Go, Canada!

"A sniper with Canada's elite special forces in Iraq has shattered the world record for the longest confirmed kill shot in military history at a staggering distance of 3,450 metres."

Yeah, there's a shock

Before today, I never knew there was such a thing as a "McCain Institute". Ostensibly, it's an organization named after Grumpy John McCain, and is "dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom.” In other words, a gaudy psychological pyramid celebrating this odious little man's vanity and inexplicably enormous self-esteem. And, just perhaps, it is also a source of sleazy international payola:
Critics worry that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.

The institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.
George Soros! Of course! Hey, it takes dough to maintain your status as a "maverick", especially when, at bottom, you're just a moss-backed, deep state hack.

Update: The good news is that George Soros can't buy everything. GOP candidate Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in a U.S. Congressional race in Georgia that was supposed to be the beginning of the end for President Trump.

Trump should be impeached

Why? Well, just because.
