    1. It is from Politico.

      Republicans are having difficulty recruiting candidates who want to run with the Screaming Yam at the top of the ticket.

    1.   215 huh?….Maybe kilograms!

      Seriously!  I want that scale to buy everything from sides of beef to precious metals.  I'll be able to retire before the weekend!

  1. My random thought for the day is that Randy Rainbow should do a Tommy Tutone cover of 867-5309 with P01135809. Now that would be damn entertaining. 

  2. GOP primary season just heated up. 

    Trump is going to need a stunt double to  attend his trial(s) starting next March.

    Or perhaps they’ll just declare Trump the winner and watch all the court proceedings instead.

    1. Ah, yes, "Joe the Plumber," whose name was not Joe but instead Samuel and who was not a plumber but instead an idiot. He of the ginned up 2008 controversy fueled by the liberal (lol) MSM's collective desire to put a big, fat Fourth Estate thumb or two on the McCain-Palin side of the scale. He of the business end of a 2012 electoral slaughter delivered by Marcy Kaptur. And he of "Your dead kids don't trump my [Second Amendment] rights" fame. Fuck that guy.

  3. "Americans are Coping themselves to death." From Noah Smith:

    Life expectancy in the US has been going down… 

    An American 29-year-old has a chance of dying that’s four times higher than a British 29-year-old. 

    The difference between the U.S. and other countries is more severe at lower income levels, but there’s a gap at every point in the income distribution. And while Black Americans have the highest mortality rates, White Americans also die at much higher rates compared to the inhabitants of other rich countries. In other words, our unique mortality problem is pervasive throughout our society. 

    What makes Americans die at such higher rates? Well, it’s pretty simple to break down the international mortality differences into specific causes. Basically, the answer boils down to some combination of:

    • obesity-related diseases (cardiovascular disease, diabetes, etc.)

    • drugs and alcohol

    • smoking

    • suicide

    • murder

    • car accidents

    I’ll save murder and car accidents for future posts (though I’ll touch on the latter briefly). For now I want to focus on the lifestyle factors that are killing young Americans. My basic theory is that Americans are doing things that kill them — hard drugs, legal drugs, overeating, and suicide — as ways of coping with the stress of their lives. Which means to bring down American death rates, we should do more than just fight drugs and suicide and obesity directly; we should figure out why Americans are so desperate for coping mechanisms in the first place.
