Boris Johnson invoked Godwin's Law in real life this week by comparing the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia to the 1936 Berlin Olympics, explicitly likening Putin and Hitler.

I mean, the fall of Jericho sounds a lot like the Fall of Liege during WWI, only even faster.

Well, someone's awfully cranky about being forced to go through the injustice of allowing for free and fair elections despite a blue wave.

I've been meaning to post this and forgetting about it.

Ted Cruz said that the Democrats are the party of Lisa Simpson, while the GOP is the party of Homer, Marge, Bart, and Maggie.

After Brexit, UKIP has collapsed; it was a single-issue party that actually resolved its single issue. But according to general secretary Paul Oakley, it's not all over:

"Think of the Black Death in the Middle Ages. It comes along and it causes disruption and then it goes dormant, and that's exactly what we are going to do. Our time isn't finished because Brexit is being betrayed."

Challenged over whether he wanted to compare his party to a plague that killed millions, Mr Oakley said: “Absolutely. What’s wrong with that?”

Chief of Staff John Kelly talked about deporting illegal immigrants on NPR. When the interviewer said " people say that's cruel and heartless to take a mother away from her children", Kelly responded:

"I wouldn't put it quite that way. The children will be taken care of — put into foster care or whatever. But the big point is they elected to come illegally into the United States and this is a technique that no one hopes will be used extensively or for very long."

Foster care or whatever. That's reassuring.

Older folks and their casual racism. I can just hear Ron Paul ask what the cotton pickin' problem is with his post.

Actually, his excuse was that it was posted by a staff member without his knowledge. The same excuse he used with the racist newsletters published under his name.

Apparently "a staff member" refers to one of his other personalities. And here I was thinking it referred to his dick.

Representative Paul Gosar (R-Arizona) at the hearing of Peter Strzok: “I’m a dentist, OK. So I read body language very, very well.”

I... really don't see the connection.

I think I might, at least the connection between politicians and dentists.

Nah, that's "a stiff member". He kept the name from when he was younger.
