Don't mention the abortion!

A white girl won, so it's obviously racist. But they tried to cover it up by getting the contestants (or handmaids, or whatever we're calling them now) to criticize Donald Trump.

I don't know what Miss Missouri looks like, but she's got my vote.

Miss North Dakota:

Quote
Mund: I do believe it's a bad decision, once we reject that we take ourselves out of the negotiation table. And thatís something we really need to keep in mind. There is evidence that climate change is existing so whether you believe it or not, we need to be at that table and I think itís just a bad decision on behalf of the United States.

My head hurts just trying to decipher that.

Why does it not surprise me that (1) she graduated from an Ivy League university (Brown), and (2) she's going to be a lawyer?

You're assuming she wrote or meant anything she said, instead of reading off whatever the PR folks tell her?

"Rev, your picture is in my King James Bible, where Paul talks about "inventors of evil."  Yes, I know you'll take that as a compliment."  - Fistful, possibly highest compliment I've ever received.

I think I need a PR "handler," too.

Would stop me from making all those politically incorrect statements and make me look all pure and good and model-citizen-like.

Hmmm.  Politics today.  Leftists run around bitching, conservatives sit around bitching.  Care to guess who's gonna take all the marbles in November?

I think it would take more than a PR handler to make anyone on APS look all pure and model citizen-like. Perhaps a fairy godmother with a magic wand?

The fairy godmother would need a heavy duty wand to stand up to all the skull cracking she would have to do with this bunch.

ďDonít be so open-minded that your brains fall out.Ē - G.K. Chesterton

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Some joker wrote on a bathroom wall, "Is there really intelligent life on Earth?"
Someone scribbled below in answer, "Yes, but I am going home next Tuesday."

"Help, I've fallen and I can't find the beef!

That sounds like assault. What caliber for fairy godmother?

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
