Welcome to Little Jerry’s Airing of Grievances

Image result for festivus

Far be it from me to criticize a person based solely on their looks but have you ever seen 3 such goofy looking academics in your life?

Like I said though, it’s not just their mugs. If central casting called for 3 pompous, supercilious professors with daddy issues, here’s your final cut. They landed the lead roles in the yesterday’s retelling of the Festivus story - brought to you by Little Jerry’s Deli.

In the original version Festivus is celebrated on December 23, begins with the raising of the aluminum Festivus pole, followed by a nice meatloaf dinner and only then do you get into the airing of grievances and the feats of strength. Like everything else with the Democrats these days though,  they have it half-ass backwards,

"At the Festivus dinner, you gather your family around, and tell them all the ways they have disappointed you over the past year."

and began their festivities with the airing of grievances – totally out of order.

But man oh man, did we hear their grievances! First from Michael Gerhart, who looks disturbingly like my dentist.

And Noah Feldman

who looks (and sounds) disturbingly like Harold Krenshaw, Adrian Monk’s neurotic nemesis:

Then of course there is Professor Pam Karlan who looks disturbingly like every smug, opinionated, angry harridan you’ve ever had the misfortune of running across.

And how about these two dour spectators spotted at the impeachment hearings? I’m willing to bet my last corned beef sandwich they aren’t there to support our President. Odd what these humorless members of the resistance do for fun isn’t it?

I certainly hope the Dems enjoy the rest of the upcoming Festivus traditions:

Paper Beats Rocks

Well, it’s finally here - the day that every PBS, NPR, CNN, MsNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, NYT, WaPo and LATimes journ0list has been salivating in Pavlovian anticipation is here. Fatty Nadler kicks off his episode of the Schiff Show. He will begin by presenting 4 constitutional law experts, 3 Democrat choices and one Republican selection, Jonathan Turley who is not exactly a PDJT supporter but has at least been honest about impeachment sham.

As for the Democrats’ choice I only know about the first 2: David Hogg, preeminent constitutional scholar who specializes in the 2nd Amendment.

Unfortunately he doesn’t have a grasp on one of the basic principles and strengths of the Constitution:

The next Constitutional expert makes Uncle Jerry’s third witness irrelevant as. The star witness will blow out all the stops.

He came to Washington to fix those flaws by fundamentally transforming America. Sure, his colleagues at the University of Chicago Law School where he “taught Constitutional law” called him “lazy, stupid and unqualified.” Those qualities apparently made him an ideal presidential candidate, well that and the fact he was black. Or in the inimitable words of Joey Biden he was “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man.”

And as we all know, in the fatuous world of progressives that is all that counts.

Obama: the man who proved you need not actually know the Constitution in order to destroy the Constitution. Let’s get this party started.

Bring Back the #HeathrowBears

In honor of President Trump’s trip to London, and because there’s only 22 shopping days till Christmas, I give you last year’s Heathrow Bears “advert” as the Brits call them.

Heathrow Christmas advert 2018

In it we see the homesick couple, Edward and Doris Bair returning to London, and their family, from their retirement home in Florida when they realize that sunshine isn’t everything. We see them arriving at Heathrow, where they met and their romance began 50 years ago.

2017 Heathrow Christmas advert

Why Europe’s busiest airport that operates at near capacity needs an “advert” at all is unclear to me, but then I don’t understand Democratic Socialism either. However if you’re going to advertise to your nearly captive audience The Heathrow Bears is certainly the way to go.

So naturally they killed the campaign this year. That’s right, the Bairs won’t be back for this year’s Christmas advert – and I note, they still boldly used the word “Christmas” in the adverts. Perhaps that’s why they’ve been banished.

For your enjoyment, here is Heathrow’s 2018 offering. You will see why millions of Brits were disappointed on hearing they won’t be back this year.

Those darned Brits, you simply can’t trust them to not muck up a good thing.

Only 23 Shopping Days Till Christmas

Asche Schow has a thread on commercials she hates. this is one of them:

I knew a woman like that once. Doesn’t everyone?

Don’t be that woman. Or that guy.

Who Was It That Called Journalists “Useful Idiots”

Image result for washington postAnd they should know

There’s so much out there that I occasionally lose track of some of my favorites, like Daniel Greenfield. This is his latest from Frontpage Magazine: WASHINGTON POST: AMERICANS BELIEVING THE MEDIA IS A “PATRIOTIC”* DUTY:

Margaret Sullivan has been melting down for a while. But this meltdown, as the public backs further away from impeachment, is truly glorious.

“I don’t know what to believe’ is an unpatriotic cop-out. Do better, Americans.” – Washington Post

We’re in Bertolt Brecht territory here. Time to replace the people with a people the media approve of. Open borders for everyone.

More from Sullivan:

If every American did any two of the following things, the “who knows?” club could be swiftly disbanded. Subscribe to a national newspaper and go beyond the headlines into the substance of the main articles; subscribe to your local newspaper and read it thoroughly — in print, if possible; watch the top of “PBS NewsHour” every night; watch the first 15 minutes of the half-hour broadcast nightly news; tune in to a public-radio news broadcast;…

If you’re pressed for time because you just realized there’s only 24 days (that’s just a smidge over 3 weeks!) till Christmas I’ll cut right to the chase: Margaret Sullivan thinks it’s your patriotic duty to accept and internalize without question the agitprop that she and her ilk churn out. And she gets mad at you when you don’t.

First, the media barrages the public with hysterical clickbait. And then whines when the inevitable apathy sets in.

"How dare you ignore me when I keep screaming at you?"

Kind of reminds me of someone…oh yeah:

How dare you!?
