Shhhh, it was supposed to be a SECRET, Booz Allen Hamilton!
“With the American flag fanny pack you can easily carry around all of your valuables on your person safely while still having the freedom and convenience of both hands! Nothing says “I love my country and multi tasking” like this amazing fanny pack!!!” - A customer on Amazon.com
“I regret everything.” - Betsy Ross, in heaven
Happy Flag Day!
Makes sense. They both got eliminated from the playoffs at the about the same time.
The box score for the 52nd annual Congressional Baseball Game:
- Republicans: 0 runs, 3 hits, 5 errors
- Democrats: 22 runs, 24 hits, 0 errors
One more loss like this and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) will lead an investigation into ‘roids in congressional baseball.

This week in the adventures of 90-year-old congressman Ralph Hall (R-TX):
- Hall walked into an LGBT Pride Reception on Capitol Hill.
- By all accounts, he had a good time and made polite conversation.
- Until he realized this reception was a gay thing: “At that moment I realized that this was not the reception I intended to attend, and I put down my glass, thanked the sponsor, and told him we would be leaving.”
A convenient story, Rep. Hall!
Our thoughts are with Rep. Steve King (R-IA) in this difficult hour. Having your office visited by college kids
holding menacing an umbrella looks utterly terrifying.

Things could be going better for your PR department when it has to issue a statement like this:
We want to assure our fans that HGTV is proud of the American flag and everything it symbolizes for our people.
Oh lord, how could HGTV possibly offend flag-lovers? Did they suggest that an actual flag be used as a tablecloth for a festive July 4th table-scape? Were they REALLY excited about nylon flags because “spills can be easily wiped off and the flag can later be hung with pride on a flag pole”?
Uh, yes. That is exactly what happened, and people are angry. How can patriots explain that splotch of mayo next to the fifty stars? “Uh, DC got statehood!” “That’s Puerto Rico!” “It’s just a freedom stain!”
In the future, HGTV, please remember that American flags are appropriately used as 1) scarfs, 2) capes, 3) ponchos, but never, ever, as tablecloths.

Dude, remember the last election? the pro-rape vote is not NEARLY as big as you think it is.
Happy birthday, President Bush*!
Those patriotic socks are totally working for you.
