If someone had told me a mere three years ago that Dick Cheney wasn’t the worst and most destructive politician (or indeed person) in America I would have laughed in derision. Ah, good times, good times…

And yet if James O’Keefe does something like this they hold it up as good investigative journalism. Maybe Cohen is just a prankster, but at least he’s funny, whereas O’Keefe is dishonest and stupid and not even remotely funny.

I used to say that about Trump. Now, I’m not so sure.


Can she not see Russia from her house?


Now if only Sean Hannity will get waterboarded with the signed water jug.



Also, where?

And what, right? Previously covered in on bOING:
