Tweet of the Day, So WHY Is This An April Fools’ Joke? edition.

I mean, sure, I get that they’re not reviving Brisco County, Jr. But they could! And even if it’s just for a season, it’s still in Netflix’s wheelhouse.

I doubt that I’m going to do an April Fool’s joke this year.

I often don’t; I’m honestly not that good at them. Like most forms of comedy, it’s a lot harder to do than it looks. I can’t be good at everything.

But if you see good ones, link to ’em in comments by all means.

A surprising LACK of April Fool’s stuff…

…on the Internet today.  Guess we’re all just not in the mood.

Moe Lane

PS: Sorry, there really isn’t anything here.  No surprises, no gags, no tricky bits.  Hold on: here.  That’s a blind link that will take you to Rick Ashley’s Never Gonna Give You Up.  I dunno.  Just not a thing for me, today.

#rsrh Neo-neocon illustrates the problems with Internet April Fools’ jokes…

…to wit: in a world where domestic politics have gone decidedly non-Euclidean*, stuff like this is not only believable: it’s actually sort of plausible. Elaborate Top Gun routine?  Sure, why not?  It’s no less believable than the one about us giving the Russians a mistranslated reset button as part of a diplomatic exchange.

*Please note: ‘non-Euclidean’ is used in this context as non-mathematicians use it: to wit, incorrectly.

Bacon from a *squeeze bottle*!

Squeez Bacon

It’s real.  It’s bacon that you can squeeze out whenever you want squeezable bacon.   It is not an April Fool’s joke.  It is one of the greatest ideas ever.  You want some of this.  You want a case of this*.

Via Caleb Howe, whose Twitter you want to follow.  If you do the Twitter thing, that is.

You also want Bacon Flavored Mints. Don’t try to lie about it, either. (more…)

I am not a shill for AIPAC.

Thanks to R.S. McCain, I’ve been dragged into this complete non-scandal about him and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, so I might as well establish this now: I do not work for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. I am not directly compensated by AIPAC in any way. AIPAC has not provided me with any consideration in exchange for my highlighting the Israel-bashing escapades of Jim Moran (D, VA-08), whether on MoeLane or RedState. There is thus obviously no financial motive for me to highlight the relationship between Rep. Moran and his brother Brian, who is opposing McAuliffe for the Democratic nomination for Governor.

And I suggest that anyone who wants to pursue this should be prepared to provide compelling evidence to the contrary.

Moe Lane

PS: Bob McDonnell for Governor. He stands with Israel.  Not that I’m obliged to point that out, or anything.

The latest insult from the Obama administration.

They just don’t care, do they?  This latest tax scandal that Andrew Malcolm found shows that they just don’t care.  And every time you think that they’ve at least run out of new outrages, they just go out and find something new to do.

Given the lengthening record of back tax problems with numerous other administration appointments this year — Tom Daschle, Timothy Geithner, Nancy Kelleher, Hilda Solis’ husband, and just yesterday Kathleen Sebelius — the nominee was said to feel that proceeding with his appointment and the predictable array of awkward questions surrounding such inexplicable behavior would be a major distraction to a governmental administration facing such serious challenges as how to live up to five-year automotive warranties during a four-year presidential term.

The nominee, a Washington veteran who wants to spend more time with his family, knew that his inadvertent oversights totaling some $8,800 were insignificant in a city where sums of money with 10 zeroes are routinely described as “a small percentage of total spending” without laughter. And he knew full well he’d be appearing before an open Senate committee dominated by fellow party members totally in the tank for him before they flossed that day.

At this rate, these people will be lesnerizing* in public. Without shame.
