I Am Confident In The Future Of The Economy

Although the big news out of this story is that Sarah Palin believes that teaching kids about nutrition is the rough equivalent of marching them towards an enviro-friendly gulag, this is what stood out to me:

She was the guest speaker last night at a fundraiser at Plumstead Christian School in Plumstead Township.

[…]

School officials hope her appearance in the end will bring in several hundred dollars. Palin’s appearance fee, thought to be $75,000, was reportedly covered by private donors.

You know, sometimes you have to spend money to make a lot less money.

So, let’s make this clear. Private donors raise $75,000 to bring a woman who likely earns three separate paychecks just for breathing. (Or, more likely, having an employee breathe under her name.) The fundraiser she appears at earns several hundred dollars. If you, like me, wonder why the donors didn’t just donate the $75,000 to the school and skip over Palin getting pissed about the lack of nacho cheese fountains in sixth grade, well…I heard there’s nothing to uplift the soul like Sarah Palin’s nasal whine cutting through a school cafeteria.

Trump team ‘is as incompetent, shambolic, paranoid, and given to conspiracy theories as it appears’: MSNBC panel

Published

on

In a Sunday evening panel discussion, MSNBC commentators explained that the White House appears to be just as chaotic and marred by chaos as the rumors say.

Many in the White House learned that the president's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was working overseas in Ukraine. Giuliani claimed that he's been producing a film that he couldn't get Fox News to run, as it will appear on the fringe network OAN.

"What Rudy Giuliani is doing is using Kremlin-manufactured propaganda as a defensive shield for the president," said CNBC's John Harwood. "Fiona Hill was unambiguous in her testimony to the intelligence committee. What Rudy Giuliani has been doing with these two indicted men who are linked to a Russian oligarch who is tied to Russian organized crime, is trying to manufacture a story that Ukraine, rather than Russia or in addition to Russia or differently from Russia, meddle in the campaign. That is false."

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

Published

on

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."
