Up and at it early after a late night last night.

My daughter is happy, too. Her main teacher doesn’t give out homework the next day if the Steelers win.

In the melange of nonsense which was the last debate, The obdurate "moderators" continued to roister in their abuse of the candidates. Only one candidate remained unflappable, answering trick questions clearly, with a raffish smile.

Reminds me of Dune. "He who rules Arakis controls the spice. He who controls the spice controls the universe." The spice was also called melange in the books. It's really poop from the giant sand worms.

Should a RINO emerge from the melange
Of candidates, then quel dommage
Nothing new but the name
Just the same stupid game
As the French say, "la plus ça change..."

The melange of lies and nonsense that used to spew from the Teleprompter of the United States (TOTUS) has turned into a monotonous chant:

Pass the Bill! Pass the Bill! Pass the Bill!

GEORGE: So are they coming tonight or not?

JERRY: Look I really don't know what they're plans are.

GEORGE: Ok, fine. It's going to be very interesting, very interesting if they don't show up tonight. You know my mother made all this Paella.

JERRY: What is that anyway?

GEORGE: It's a Spanish dish. It's a melange of fish, an meat with rice. Very tasty.

JERRY: I-I'll tell 'em

A melange of metaphors

If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew, uh, as a janitor makes me a warrior for the working class, I wear that with a badge of honor. I have no problem with that.

reading about Barry’s speech to the Congressional Black Caucus dinner, where he told them to take off their slippers and put on their marching shoes, it reminded me of that long ago statement by Earl Butz. Do you guys remember that absolutely jaw-dropping “joke” he told, which caused him to resign as Ford’s Sect of Ag? I wondered whether had a white politician told a black audience to take off their slippers if it would have been considered racist?

and this melange of leftists needs dropped back over the border into Iran. Makes me furious to read this crap. Eric Bolling on the Five last week was negative on them before anything had even come out about this crap, and Beckel or Juan, not sure which, was jaw agape at his negative tone towards them. Turns out Bolling was right all along.
