The OTHER Tweet of the Day, Stupid Venezuelan Socialists edition.

I don’t often say this, but: damn, but I wish I had written that.

I mean, that’s just a beautiful line. It’s almost perfect. I’d sit for a few minutes and just beam at the screen if I ever wrote anything like that.

And, really: what the heck is Donald Trump gonna be able to say in response?

Apparently, Andrea Tantaros has been fired.

I’ll be honest: all I know about her is that she’s a Trump supporter on Fox who starts fights with people on Twitter. Oh, and that the other day Neal Dewing did a dramatic reading of excerpts from her latest book that had half my timeline in stitches. And that apparently she’s blaming National Review Online for her fall from Fox:

I don’t think that I could ever get anybody fired. I mean, I’m not even sure that I’d know where to begin. Besides, what would I do if the person I was delivering the ‘fire this person’ ultimatum says ‘no’?

Senator Mike Lee is a bad person to make your enemy.

I’ve met him and interviewed him a couple of times, so I can say this from experience: Senator Mike Lee is a good guy. He’s also likely to be in the Senate for as long as he cares to be, and he plans to do things while he’s there. Listening to Senator Lee get good and steamed in this Mark Levin interview should make a careful man thoughtful. Because this issue ain’t going away any time soon, election or no election.

This legal brief defending the right to use the Klingon language…

…is everything that you dreamed it would be. EVERYTHING. I’m perhaps prejudiced by my upbringing and inclinations, but: I don’t think Paramount has a great case, here. I don’t know that they don’t have a case at all, because I’m not a lawyer – but I don’t know what they expect to get out of it, either.

Via Popehat.

PS: No, I’m not going to make any puns in Klingon. I don’t speak it.

Merrick Garland nomination still stagnating.

The Washington Free Beacon puts it pretty succinctly: “Merrick Garland is no closer to confirmation as the next Supreme Court justice than he was at the beginning of April despite a sustained campaign by President Obama’s personal advocacy group financed by some of the country’s top Democratic donors.” Basically, if it hasn’t been made clear by now: if there’s going to be any movement on this nomination, it’s not going to come from the Democratic side. Particularly if it comes from Organizing for Action, which is apparently better at organizing than it is at action.

…I had more to add, but: suffice it to say that there is currently one person who I would trust to pick our next Supreme Court Justice, and that person is named ‘Ted Cruz.’ It’s in everybody’s best interest that Cruz be doing that pick. From the Oval Office.

I know that I’m supposed to be infuriated by this ‘Snowden’ trailer…

…but Jesus but it looks bad.

I mean, didn’t anybody tell Joseph Gordon-Levitt that he shouldn’t have made it sound like Snowden had recently had a stroke and didn’t quite make it to the hospital before his Golden Hour was up?

PS: Hey, look, Nick Cage! In an Oliver Stone movie! Yeah, there’s no way that’s gonna go surreal.

Tweet of the Day, Planned Parenthood HATES The Idea of Cruz/Fiorina edition.

You can’t buy this kind of helpful antipathy. It’s practically an in-kind contribution, really. And just in time for Indiana, too.

My RedState post on the Manafort/Lewandowski War.

Found here. Short version: yeah, I know that the dude just won a bunch of Northeast primaries by a bunch, but his campaign is still having an internal civil war.  One that’s getting leaked to Politico with great vim and vigor. I am forced to admit that it’s entertaining to see… well, no, I’m not really being forced to admit that, am I?

Yeah, looks like Twitter’s gonna be real nasty tonight.

Not the vote results themselves, but the reactions to them. You know something? I’ve decided that I don’t particularly need to read ’em. Masochism ain’t my thing.

My RedState post on the NC Voter ID challenge.

Found here. Short version: the courts tossed yet another challenge to Voter ID laws, this time in North Carolina. You’d think that the Left would get bored with this, but apparently not.
