The Peter Mueller Principle

Daniel Ashman at The Federalist discusses Robert Mueller's huge cluster f*** of an investigation into the anthrax mailings that commenced in 2001.

It happens in all walks of life, in all professions, but it seems to be particularly pronounced in government that unscrupulous morons have a chance of rising to the top, of turning calamities of their own making into stepping stones to success. Robert Mueller is not, self-evidently, an honest investigator. He is a dog with a bone that was thrown to him by the Clinton camp, and as is the case with any dog, any bone will do.

Bit of luck for Australia

Actor Matt Damon reportedly was going to move to Australia to escape the Trumpian dystopia; however, turns out the rumor's not true.

Sorry, folks. I know all you blokes and sheilas were probably excited by the news, but it just wasn't meant to be. Does this mean you'll be wanting this little fellow back?

No sooner do I move to North Carolina...

...than I find that these things are running amok: "Coyote Attacks Young Girl Outside of Her House".

Truth to tell, there have been a significant number of incidents reported in Virginia, too. Coyotes are like cockroaches: they can survive practically anything, and thrive practically anywhere.

Sunday funnies

What's the password?

Romanian having a considerable amount of trouble proving that he's not dead.

Out of the frying pan into the fire.

Our robot overlords are now laughing at us.

Well, that was a forlorn hope: "Driver tries to get out of offence by saying she’s Homer Simpson".

Is this one of Elon Musk's crazy ideas? "A team of sled dogs who were perhaps a little too dedicated to their sport were caught on camera running down an Alaska highway -- without their musher."

This dad turned his kid into a hilarious leprechaun.

One down...

...and a lot more who ought to go: FBI’s Andrew McCabe Fired.

Update: I sure hope justice eventually catches up with this deep state scoundrel.

What rabid, right-wing white supremacist said this?

"Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be carefully used and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of the citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government and one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible."

Yeah, that's right. Hubert Freakin' Humphrey (discovered at The Feral Irishman, along with a host of other excellent observations on the right to bear arms, including the following image).
