Two non-related items:
(1) It seems that the Washington Post has identified the London-accented ISIS executioner. They claim that he is “a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming.”
But that seems rather far-fetched. Don’t we all know that ISIS militants are motivated by a lack of job opportunities?
That said, the Post story does lay the foundation for a radicalized-by-stop-and-frisk explanation. That would be awesome because it would prove, once and for all, that Islamophobia is the (other?) root cause for religiously-motivated beheadings.
(2) Andrew Stiles deserves a Pulitzer for stuff like this. Sample funny:
Hillary Clinton is running for president, but due to her advanced age, inability to think on her feet, and unquenchable lust for money, she would like to avoid having to actually campaign for as long as possible.
Anyway, after seeing the idea floated that Clinton would like to finish the nominating contest without participating in any candidate debates, it got me thinking: What if Clinton was able to make it through the primary season without giving any unpaid speeches!
Might not be as crazy as it sounds. I mean, these don’t have to be Goldman-Sachs-style paid speeches. But what if she turned every campaign event into a closed-door fundraiser where Democratic voters had to pony up, say a $25 cover to get in the door? (18 to party, 21 to drink!) No more “Come to the IHOP and meet the candidate garbage.” You want the good stuff with the next POTUS, you pay like everyone else.
