Tuesday's HOT MIC
The Babylon Bee is quickly becoming one of the leading cultural critics on the Internet, cutting to the quick of our declining cultural morass. Examples:
The background of the piece about Kirk Cameron is that he's been mocked relentlessly for his "Puritanical" Christian values. For years critics have laughed at Cameron's refusal to do kissing scenes in movies (unless they're with his wife). They've also ridiculed Cameron (and a lot of other men for that matter) for his policy of refusing to be alone with other women — or even be photographed with them. Against the backdrop of the #MeToo climate swirling around us, those Puritanical values don't seem so ridiculous, do they?
I'm pretty taken aback by PJM writers pushing for Roy Moore to step down. I am not from Alabama. I don't know this guy. I have no attachment to him. But if Moore is forced out of this race by unsubstantiated claims pushed by serial scam artist Gloria Allred, what's to stop them from repeating this ad nauseam for every single important seat we are fighting for? Excuse me, but if this were true it would have come out a long time ago and NOT right before a big election (how about one of his many other big elections?) Could it be true? Gloria Allred's presence throws serious doubt on that, in my opinion. Has everyone lost their minds? If he resigns, then Allred's tactics work (but only on Republicans). By the way, how's that actual trial featuring Democrat Senator Menendez, who was accused of corruption (and possibly sex with minors! Gasp!), going? Oh yeah, no one cares.
The latest on the ever blossoming Dem IT scandal:
The family of Imran Awan, the now-indicted former IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and other Democrats, was previously accused of fraud in Pakistan involving “huge chunks” of land, but the charges were dropped because “Awan’s son had easy access to the corridors of power,” according to a detailed article in a Pakistani newspaper.
Elderly farmers said Imran’s father ripped them off, but local police dropped charges against Imran’s father and targeted his accusers after alleged pressure from Pakistani national-level politicians, the Sept. 3, 2009, article in Dawn reported. The story was headlined, “Influential expat shields father from long arm of law.”
The Caller reports that the help came from Rahm Emanuel, who employed the Awan family during his days as a congressman.
What is it with this guy and the Democrats?
Oh, well -- nothing to see here, I'm sure. But Don Jr. totally "colluded with the Russians" when he politely responded to a few Wikileaks DMs.
It's not too late to get your fat pants for Thanksgiving:
And if you're hosting Thanksgiving dinner you might want to give your guests a heads up:
