How Will the Daily Caller Write About Boobs Now?

by evanmcmurry

I suppose Ashley Judd had to get out of the KY Senate race in time to allow a viable Democrat to establish a campaign. But it’s too bad, as the mere possibility of her running was causing Republicans, and especially the Daily Caller, to go insane.

You’re Not Alone

by evanmcmurry

In my desire to know everything in the new Buzz Bissinger GQ dump without actually reading it, I’m having to get the info piecemeal. Here’s today’s nugget:

“It started three years ago,” Bissinger writes of his compulsion. “I have never fully revealed it, and am only revealing it now in the hopes that my confession will incite a remission and perhaps help others of similar compulsion.”

Finally, washed-up writers spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on 115 leather gloves have a voice.

The Craziest Anti-Gun Control Amendment Yet

by evanmcmurry

Soon guns will have more rights than you do:

Senators voted 50-49 in favor of an amendment by Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, to establish a two-thirds requirement for the passage of any gun control legislation in their chamber. While the budget resolution is nonbinding and the amendment did not win the 60 votes needed to be adopted, the outcome underscores how many senators strongly support gun rights, just as the chamber prepares to debate the biggest package of gun control measures in nearly two decades.

[…] Lee’s amendment sought to require a 67-vote supermajority for Senate passage of all future restrictions on firearms and ammunition, and it used a broad definition of the term “gun control.” For example, beyond requiring the heightened vote threshold for a proposed ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, the amendment also would have required it for any bill that “requires background checks through a federal firearms licensee for private transfer of firearms.”

Gay marriage should just get categorized as a firearm, then it’d be set.
