I swear, I don’t know how Michelle Malkin does it. She is one of the sweetest, most big-hearted people I’ve ever met. Yet she has to endure garbage like this, from allegedly-tolerant progressives, on a fairly regular basis. I don’t know who tells these young comedians that they should do insult humor, but, as far as I’m concerned, that particular branch of comedy ended at Don Rickles. He is the gold standard and no one has gotten within light years of him since then. NPR needs to find some comedians who can do actual humor and leave the insult stuff to someone who cares enough about it to put some effort into the craft. Oh, and it wouldn’t hurt for them to remember that Rickles didn’t often throw shots at people who couldn’t be there to fight back. Insulting someone who can’t return the favor isn’t comedy; it’s cowardice.

Whew! Sorry about that, folks. That won’t be part of my rant tonight on The Delivery. Oh, did I not mention there will be a rant tonight? There surely will be and I plan on bringing all my A-game material. You’re going to love it!

And now, links!

  • How bad is our entitlement situation? Veronique de Rugy has a chart that will curl your toes.
  • Another day, another Republican suggestion to knock a huge hole in our debt that the MSM will studiously ignore.
  • Why has our EPA not fast-tracked this plan to get 500K barrels of Canadian oil to our refineries? I’d love to get an honest answer from the administration. I suspect it’d be similar to “because we want gasoline to be as expensive as possible”.
  • Woo! Far Side of the Moon, man!
  • I didn’t even try to get into the new “V” miniseries, and from this writeup, I’m glad I didn’t. I would have been sorely disappointed.
  • I know it seems like a good idea to save money by launching rockets controlled by artificial intelligence, but we all know where this will lead: machine planets, interstellar searches for “The Creator”, and jumpsuits that looks like pajamas.

    Is there any evidence that MIchelle Malkin actually has a sense of humor and would recognize humor? Wait Wait Don't Tell Me is always in the top ten of iTunes podcasts, and the audience live. No laugh track.

      And that means what, exactly? People laugh at Dane Cook and car accidents all the time. Just proves that our senses of humor have atrophied to the point where drooling morons amuse us.

    Launching rockets controlled by AI? I like it! And we can use SkyNet to initiate the launch sequence, because what could go wrong?
