Speaking as a SSM supporter: stuff like this always bugs me.

The Israeli election is interesting and all, but I miss the Bush years when we could also talk about the Iraqi ones.

That kind of leaves a mark, and it’s not even aimed at me.
I try not to play the If X agrees with me then I may need to re-evaluate my position game.
DUDE! MSNBC’S Ed Schultz says we must consider GROUND TROOPS in ‘religious war’ against ISIS http://t.co/fj9h8cO0x2

So instead I just need to figure out what the heck is causing Ed Schultz to come to the conclusion that we’re probably going to end up killing a lot of IS death cultists. Who knows? If it’s environmental, perhaps we can reproduce the effect elsewhere.
I dunno. “Knitting tiny wool sweaters for tiny injured penguins” is actually kind of badass.

Especially when you’re 109 years old. What recklessly Australian things did this man do in his prime, that he now balances it with making protective clothing for cute, yet wounded waterfowl? – And nobody tell me! It almost certainly won’t be as cool as the story I’m telling myself in my head right now.
But otherwise true.
If you're a Congressman with a scandal to get off your chest you have roughly 30 mins of total impunity starting about now

Look, I understand how a person might think that getting a tattoo of an airport carpet pattern* might say to the world that you are serious; but, speaking as a representative of the world, I regret to tell you that in fact the opposite is true.
PS: Mind you, if the hipsters want the old carpet and the Portland airport can’t get rid of it otherwise, then by all means: give the hipsters the damned carpet. I mean, the hipsters want it, right? Better than just throwing it in a landfill.
…What? Hipsters can have nice things, too. For given values of ‘nice.’

It’s a matter of principle.

Because I’ll tell you: after watching a certain flavor of progressive do stuff like this, I have really and truly come to a genuine appreciation of the shaken head, and the mused Man. White people. I will not give this up. You can’t make me give this up. I will not be shamed into giving it up. Accept that.
I mean, speaking professionally this Tweet is master-level work. I want to use it to teach a class.

It’s perfectly designed for its target audience: David assumes that you know the story of the de Blasio Groundhog Murder (and Coverup) already, and that you know about Mike Bloomberg’s insane mayor-clown anti-gun posse – which means he can go with the joke without having to explain anything. I mean, sure, if you’re a first-time Twitter user who doesn’t follow politics you won’t get the jok… no, wait, there’s a picture of a groundhog about to savage a man’s ear. You’d still get the joke anyway.
As I said: I am impressed in a professional capacity with this tweet. It’s just that good.
