Random thoughts on the passing scene.

A centrifuge could not spin America’s ignominious military exit from Afghanistan as a glorious success for the Biden administration.

No one seriously thought “Build Back Better” would apply to the Taliban.

The media’s temporary affliction of sanity in being critical of President Biden’s disastrous retreat from Afghanistan is already waning.

Have Democrats considered impeaching President Biden for his phone conversation with then-Afghan president Ashraf Ghani before the country fell to the Taliban? There may be a precedent for that.

When conspiracy theorists say, “Do your own research,” what they typically mean is credulously watch anecdotal YouTube videos they sent.

The Pentagon has denied reports military dogs were abandoned in Afghanistan. You know what the Pentagon can’t credibly deny? That it abandoned American citizens and allies in Afghanistan.

That so many on the left and in the mainstream media are shrugging their shoulders at the Biden administration leaving Americans behind enemy lines in Afghanistan is surely a sign of national decline.

“Jeopardy!” is the game show equivalent of Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir. Almost no one is worthy enough to wield it by hosting the answer-and-question program.

Does President Biden’s use of the phrase “The buck stops with me” make anyone else think of Inigo Montoya from the “Princess Bride” and his most oft-quoted line: “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”?

Less than eight months into his presidency, and Joe Biden’s credibility has been reduced to that of the Black Knight from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

Whatever happened to Vice President Kamala Harris?

Considering all the damage he has done to the country so far, it is depressing to realize President Biden is slated to remain in office for three more godforsaken years.

Government overreaction to COVID-19 is making the cure seem worse than the disease.

That no one from President Biden’s national security team has resigned over the Afghanistan debacle is surely a sign of national decline.

Kudos to the brave men and women of the U.S. military who performed so admirably in Afghanistan over the last several weeks under difficult circumstances. Demerits to U.S. political leadership for its incompetence in saddling them with such a turd-polishing mission in the first place.

Scientists are human, too. All scientific conclusions are provisional to one degree or another. It pays to assiduously adhere to the scientific method and have a healthy sense of skepticism to minimize the influence of bias and wishful thinking.

Jimmy Carter: “I’m the worst U.S. president of the modern era.”
President Biden: “C’mon, man, hold my beer!”

The Second Coming could see Jesus Christ return to Earth and be found not holy enough to host “Jeopardy!”

Joe Biden’s caveat emptor presidential campaign and the utter dreadfulness of his presidency so far makes it feel almost unsporting — almost — to ask Biden voters if they are now experiencing buyer’s remorse on steroids.
