Happy Feet Friday (Better Late Than Never edition)

An all-star gathering - B.B. King, Etta James, Eric Clapton, Gladys Knight and others - perform "Why I Sing the Blues".

I was going to suggest that Howard Dean was a bit of a dung beetle

But that wouldn't be quite correct; I think it would be more accurate to say that he aspires to be a dung beetle.

Update: Speaking of dung beetles, join me now and take a walk down memory lane with this rerun of an early Paco Enterprises short story.

Who won the debate?

Looks like Veeshir did:
Who won the debate last night? That would be me. I didn’t watch the previews on every channel, I didn’t watch the debate and I didn’t watch the recap.
Actually, I suspect there were a lot of winners.

Oh, swell

Narcotraficantes are now using homemade submarines to move drugs across the border.

Arnold Palmer, RIP

When I was a little fellow, and knew practically nothing about golf, I still knew who Arnold Palmer was. A great golfer, and great for the game of golf, he will be missed.

As a taxpayer, I'd like to have my money back, please

It's becoming increasingly clear that the FBI "investigation" of Hillary and company in connection with her unsecure, homemade server was a sham from the beginning.

A tremendous disservice to the concept of justice, and a colossal waste of taxpayer money.

Sunday funnies

That's using your, er, head.

Gotta remember to watch your back...

Uncover that pseudonym!

President Obama supposedly used a fake name in communicating with Hillary over her homemade server. The administration isn't making the pseudonym known, so I challenge readers to guess what it might have been.

If everyone's "immune"...

...then I guess no one's guilty.

Whoa! B.B. King and Joe Cocker team up on "I'm in a Dangerous Mood".

Can't wait for the TV dramatization

"Gov Moonbeam Signs Legislation Regulating Cow Flatulence".

Dear Hillary

Please learn to use your inside voice.

I confess: two of my biggest reasons for hoping for a Trump victory are (1) to watch all the liberal heads imploding at the agency where I work, and (2) to see Hillary Clinton's concession speech. I really don't believe she'll be able to pull it off without something like this happening...

Just another flare-up of Obama's racial-healing legacy

A shooting in Charlotte, NC (black cop/black suspect) has resulted in protests riots. And what would the pursuit of social justice be without the shedding of innocent blood?

I talked to Bro Paco yesterday on the telephone; he lives near the little town of Midland, maybe ten miles or so outside of Charlotte in a rural area, but just off of a major state road that runs right into the city. He reported (in a rather wistful tone of voice, it seemed to me) that no rioters had shown up in his neighborhood. Probably a good thing for both him, and especially for any troublemakers, that this was the case, since I believe his home defense tools include considerably more than merely a baseball bat and pepper spray.

Prediction

Hillary faints during the debate and her Secret Service detail shoots Trump as he rushes to catch her.

If this be treason, make the most of it

Doddering old kleptocrat and pathological liar blames acts of Islamic terror on you know who.

Relax, bub, for all intents and purposes, you've already got the White House

"Palestinian Preacher: Blow Up DC Because ‘Allah Has Promised Us The White House’".

No brainer

Who ya gonna believe, Sid Blumenthal or practically anybody else?

I'm beginning to think that if the FBI were a dog, it wouldn't be able to find its own food dish

How'd they miss this?
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is looking into a series of posts deleted from the website Reddit that appear to show Hillary Clinton’s computer technician asking for advice on how to “strip” her email address from backups of her emails.
Update: More from Zero Hedge.

Of course

No guns were involved in the recent terrorist events in New York and New Jersey, and any admission of terrorism might underscore an Islamic connection and the administration's slack immigration policy, so mum's the word for Obama.

Correction: Turns out a gun was involved: The Chelsea bomber shot it out with police, before being wounded and taken into custody. Two police officers were also wounded, and we pray that they recover quickly.

So, it looks like the Left will get its chance to denounce gun violence after all.

Father Gabriele Amorth, RIP

The Vatican's chief exorcist has died at age 91.

One particularly ominous observation from Father Amorth, made last year: "Biblically speaking we are in the last days and the beast is working furiously".

As usual, it's all about him

Obama sees the likelihood of decreasing black support for Hillary as a "personal insult".

Why? Blacks have fared particularly poorly during Obama's two terms, and there's absolutely nothing in Hillary's program that offers anything but more of the same. Besides, Barry's statement strikes me as overtly racist, just more of the melanin-├╝ber-alles shtick that Democrats have been peddling for decades.

Sunday funnies

Hillary performs amazing feats of strength to restore confidence in her health. For example...



Politicians in Russia are still trying to master the art of campaigning.

Now, that right there's real romance: "Couple weds at shooting club".

Noel Field, unreconstructed communist and schmuck

I had never heard of this particular Red before, but he seems to have been one of the truest of believers, maintaining his fidelity to Stalin even after spending five years in a communist prison, arrested by mistake.

Haw!

I suppose it's too much to hope that Warren Buffett winds up living in a wooden crate near a rail yard, but I do find myself distinctly unsympathetic to his recent $1.4 billion dollar loss on his investment in scandal-plagued Wells Fargo.

Elderly grandmother gets a case of the vapors (more on Hillary's health issues from Scott McKay at The American Spectator). Update: Pneumonia?

Sharyl Attkisson lays out the details of Hillary's private server scandal in a reader-friendly outline (Yeah, that's right, James Comey; it's still a scandal).

A contingent of North Carolina deplorables swings into action.

Sheesh. First, I'm a deplorable. Now, I'm a f*cking a**hole. The leftists are not exactly swaying me with their nuanced arguments and unassailable logic.

Another day...

...another curious revelation about FBI Director James Comey: "FBI Director James Comey’s Clinton Foundation Connection".

Citizens in Detroit aren't waiting for local government to straighten itself out

Meet the good people of Detroit Threat Management.

Greetings from the "basket of deplorables"!

Hillary Clinton has zeroed in on the demographics of Trump's support.

Now, let's see...Am I racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic or Islamaphobic? Or maybe all of these?

I don't suppose Hillary ever considered the possibility that a lot of people simply don't want an unconvicted felon in the White House.


Trump supporters make their way to the polls.

It doesn't seem possible...

...but FBI Director James Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private server for official business is looking even fishier than we thought.

The Clintons taint everything, and everybody, they come into contact with. If Clinton is elected, and Comey stays on, then, as far as I'm concerned, he's just a cop on the take.

I guess the "High" in "UN High Commissioner for Human Rights" means "stoned"

"The United Nations' high commissioner for human rights blasted nationalist populists like Donald Trump and Nigel Farage for using 'tactics similar' to ISIS to frighten and reel in followers."

Oh, absolutely. Who can forget that ghastly video posted on YouTube - since taken down - of Nigel Farage decapitating a Muslim refugee by making a ring of perforations around his neck with a shrimp cocktail fork and then ripping his head off like a subscription card from a magazine.

Of course Hillary's health is a legitimate issue



Wes Pruden begs to differ from those who argue that questions about Hillary Clinton's health represent part of a "conspiracy":
The questions the Hillary campaign are trying to put off limits now are the legitimate questions about Hillary’s health. She has a well-documented record of coughing fits, fainting, stumbling up and down stairs, and uncontrolled giggling and snorting at inappropriate times. There may be good and sufficient reasons for all that, but it’s not against anybody’s rules to ask what they are.
Well, it does seem to be against the highly selective etiquette of liberal reporting, but that's another story.

The proliferation of informal power groups

A really interesting piece by Richard Hernandez, dealing with growing factionalism in America, and factionalism's curious links to increasing governmental incompetence. A sample:
Moreover, the American factional system operates in the worst possible way. The Clinton Foundation and private email scandal is a portrait of venality without competence. The peculiar characteristics of American factionalism have bred something singular; a phenomenon at once cunning yet stupid, both corrupt and inept. America is no longer exceptional, just another bum in the ring.

The DC government can't seem to do much about the city's murder rate...

...but they've really shut the door on littering: "Toddler’s littering citation dropped".
