“My idea of good company is the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company.”

Burger King decided to leave the U.S. and go to Canada because the corporate taxes in this country are just too damn high. Liberals responded by vowing to boycott the fast food chain. Shouldn’t they have been doing this already, out of allegiance to Michelle?

Obama gave a speech yesterday about ISIS. Other than the fact that “we don’t have a strategy” to defeat the terrorist group, the only thing anyone got from the press conference was that the emperor has new clothes.

Russia invaded the Ukraine. We probably also don’t have a strategy to defeat a new Soviet Union. We’ll ask Obama about it after he goes shopping.

The NFL is back!!! Sort of. And the media is especially excited this year because they can talk obsessively about Michael Sam, the openly gay player, who is, despite the extra attention he’s getting, “equal” to all other players.
