I think that Nancy Pelosi should be grateful to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for drawing enemy fire away from her.
Well, the observation that “It’s always 5:00 somewhere” DOES make a certain amount of sense, given the 24 different time zones around the world. But we don’t have a dozen different calendars, each operating 30 days apart from the next one.
You can respect individual Muslims while still being appalled at the barbaric backwardness of Saudi Arabia.
You can respect individual Jews while decrying the arrogant, racist policies of the State of Israel.
You can respect individual Catholics while denouncing the greedy criminal conspiracy operating out of the Vatican.
You can be a patriotic American while calling out the chaotic, inhumane way the current administration is running the country.

GoComics uses a very simple algorithm to determine what the “featured comment” is on any given strip: It’s the one with the most replies.

I tell you! — that the local bookstore was selling that Satanic D&D material. So he marched right in, bought their entire stock, and barbecued it on the church lawn in front of a cheering crowd. By mid-week the bookstore had entirely restocked on D&D material, and he did it again. This went on for awhile, during which time Kansas was the world center of interest in D&D according to per-capita sales figures.
“It’s always June somewhere”? Where?
