The week that was

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.”
– Agatha Christie

The midterm elections are coming up, and Democrats are so desperate to hold onto their beloved Senate that they are jumping ship from the U.S.S. Obama faster than you can say Obamacare. Alison Grimes, Democratic candidate from Kentucky seeking to unseat Mitch McConnell, went so far as to refuse to say whether or not she voted for Obama or not, making the president literally he-who-must-not-be-named.

More Obamacare insurance cancellations are on the way. I first read this headline and cheered, until I realized that it is not Obamacare that is being cancelled.

Hollywood actor Ben Affleck went on the Bill Maher’s show this week to defend Islam. Maybe he’s just trying to befriend the terrorists, so they’ll take it easy on him as they arrive in the U.S. from across the border and are released from prison by the president.

Snow cover for the month of September was the “highest on record for North America.” If that’s not climate change, I don’t know what is! (H/T MADawg.)

Gwyneth Paltrow held a fundraiser for Obama and Democrats at her house, where she proved once and for all that liberals are completely delusional:  ???You???re so handsome that I can???t speak properly,??? the actress reportedly cooed.

Oh, and if you’re looking for wholesome family fun this weekend, try to check out a fall festival, pumpkin patch, or a hayride, since you already paid for them.
