Stop the pornographic voyeurism about Ted Cruz

I can’t think of a more unbecoming topic for the press to indulge its white-hot hatred of Ted Cruz than someone on his staff “liking” a porn site’s tweet and the media treating it like Watergate.

I thought it was bad when Donald Trump implicated Cruz’s father in President Kennedy’s assassination. But this is far worse. That was roller-derby politics. This is smut and vengeance.

When Dana Bash at CNN has nothing better to do than ask Senator Cruz to name the staff member who clicked “like,” then ask “I can’t believe I’m going to ask you this, but so you’re officially saying Ted Cruz is okay with people buying sex toys?” it’s not really news anymore.

Not when Sen. Bob Menendez is on trial for bribery–a real crime. Not when Seattle Mayor Ed Murray was forced to resign, but only after FIVE men went public with accusations that he abused them when they were youngsters. Both Menendez and Murray are Democrats, and are being treated with kid gloves by the press.

I implore the media: Stop it.

Stop the disgusting pornographic voyeurism. Stop the references to masturbation that Cruz’s hate-filled former college freshman roommate keeps flingling like a monkey throwing feces through zoo cage bars.

Stop promulgating terrible, potentially libelous smears against a sitting U.S. Senator.

Have they no self-respect at all?

Don’t answer that.

Cartoon: Is that another huge immigration caravan?

Cartoon Is that another huge immigration caravan

The 2016 GOP field seemed like a clown car routine compared to what was essentially five legitimate Democratic candidates. Whether they simply feared Hillary Clinton or didn’t want to take their shot following President Obama, many Democrats who were considered potentially serious candidates didn’t run.

That’s not the case for 2020. We may end up with more Democrats in the running than we had Republicans in 2016.

Cartoonist Michael Ramirez captured the growing group perfectly:

It’s certainly starting to look like a migrant caravan forming. Oh, wait. Those are actually American citizens.

The Onion’s take on Kirsten Gillibrand is hilarious (and not completely satirical)

The Onions take on Kirsten Gillibrand is hilarious and oddly not satyrical

The Onion has built a reputation of lambasting everything in their path with some of the sharpest satire on the internet. Every now and then, they put out articles and videos that hit close to home.

Other times, they nail it. Such is the case with their 5 things to know about Kirsten Gillibrand.

The New York Democratic Senator is running for President. Judging by early poll numbers and general sentiment from many in the party, it’s very unlikely she’ll get the nomination. It’s a shame. She would have been very easy to beat.

Chick-fil-A continues to amaze as it opened Sunday for Elijah Sprague

Chick-fil-A continues to amaze as it opened Sunday for Elijah Sprague

Elijah Sprague had a wish for his 14th birthday. He wanted to work the drive-thru at his favorite Chick-Fil-A in Mobile, AL, something he hopes to do when he grows up.

Sprague has cerebral palsy and autism.

The restaurant chain, which is famously closed on Sundays to allow all of the employees to worship, has opened its doors in the past for special occasions, and this one was an easy decision for the owner of the franchise, according to his mother Rene.

“He was like, ‘Why are you even asking? Absolutely, we have to do it,’” Sprague said.

Staff baked cookies for the celebration, which Elijah gave out through the drive-thru window to acquaintances. They continued into the store and celebrated with their friend with cookie cake and games at the store.

Elijah was born after only 18 weeks in the womb. Doctors did not expect him to live longer than a year. He stayed at a hospital’s NICU for six months when Rene, who works there, decided to adopt him.

This special day, with the help of Chick-Fil-A, marks an important moment in the lives of all involved.

“This is super special to us,” Sprague said. “Elijah’s not going to graduate like our other kids. He’s not going to get married or have kids. So this is just a really cool experience to us for him to have this level of attention… it’s neat for people to recognize he’s a really cool kid.”

It’s hard not to love Chick-Fil-A as a company. It also helps that they’re food is better than just about anything offered by other fast food chains.
