first Sunday in a post-constitutional America (with mandate)

pw wife:  “I think I’m going to pick up breakfast burritos.  You want anything?”

me:  “Yes.  While you’re there, immersed in the Latino culture made manifest in the restaurant’s simple, rustic decor and the romantic smells of mole sauce and hard hairnetted work, make sure you mention to the counter girl that of course you would support amnesty and comprehensive immigration reform, and note offhandedly that Marco Rubio, who spoke at the GOP convention, is your most favorite politician — except for the fact that he’s a Republican, which unfortunately is a deal breaker.  Also, ask if she knows anybody who does roofing work for cash.

“If she doesn’t throw in some free guacamole and chips, we’ll have had what in the business is called a ‘teachable moment’.”

pw wife:   …

pw wife:  “So that’s a ‘no,’ then…?”

  1. Love love love breakfast burritos. Not like the ones you get at anyplace with a drivethru, though.

  2. But what about the ignorant slut vote, Jeff?

    How are we going to win our share of the ignorant sluts?

  3. I have been trying to work that demographic, Ernst.

    Not much success, sad to say.

  4. Let’s try cocaine. I hear that works pretty well.

  5. Might need some subsidies for that. I should draft a grant request.

  6. – Go for the fish taco’s and show your support for the wimmins.

    * smack * …..Whhhaaa?…..oh sorry…

  7. The Associated Press demonstrates it cannot distinguish a singular noun from the plural:

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel was drawn into the Syrian civil war for the first time on Sunday, firing warning shots into the neighboring country after a stray mortar shell from across the border hit an Israeli military post.

    Where further down the article we see:

    “A short while ago, a mortar shell targeted an IDF (Israel Defense Forces) post in the Golan Heights,” said army spokeswoman Lt. Col. Avital Leibovich. “We answered with a warning shot toward Syrian areas. We understand this was a mistake and was not meant to target Israel and then that is why we fired a warning shot in retaliation.”

    It’s little wonder then that the AP cannot distinguish an enemy from a friend.
