Sydney Leathers to release song called “Weinerizer”

article-2391932-1B46E7E0000005DC-640_306x496

Ok- it’s time to talk about Anthony Weiner’s sexting partner Sydney Leathers and how she is milking every minute of her fifteen minutes after the fugly politician (aka Carlos Danger in the chatrooms) suffered his second (and probably not last) sexting scandal.

After announcing she was gonna do a porn, she released an online blog with a ten-point plan should you also want to have an affair/sexual relationship with a politician– cause we ALL want to do that. She suggests stroking his ego– shocker– and “indulge his crazy alter-ego, and whatever you do, don’t laugh at him.”

Um if “Carlos Danger” sent me a gross dick pic the only thing I could do is laugh. And immediately forward it to friends and media outlets. Has he never heard of Snap Chat??!

Lastly, and probably most importantly, Leathers is in the “studio” aka her drug dealer’s mom’s basement– recording a new song AND VIDEO called “Weinerizer” to the tune of Britney Spears’ “Womanizer.” She does this all while smoking a blunt because she is a big proponent of marijuana legalization– girl’s gotta make a point.  Sydney Leathers assures us that the song will be released by September 10th just in time for the democratic Primary Election. I’m sure this song will be the turning point in both their careers.

Anthony Weiner: you’re an idiot. Please leave kthanksbai.

Hangover Friday: Goodbye forever, Napolitano

If you see something, say something. Napolitano, your hair is terrible, and didn’t your absurdly padded government stipend for allowing TSA employees to grope me OTR cover orthodontia? There I said it.

janet-napolitano“For more than four years I have had the privilege of serving President Obama and his Administration as the Secretary of Homeland Security. The opportunity to work with the dedicated men and women of the Department of Homeland Security, who serve on the frontlines of our nation’s efforts to protect our communities and families from harm, has been the highlight of my professional career. We have worked together to minimize threats of all kinds to the American public. The Department has improved the safety of travelers; implemented smart steps that make our immigration system more fair and focused while deploying record resources to protect our nation’s borders; worked with states to build resiliency and make our nation’s emergency and disaster response capabilities more robust; and partnered with the private sector to improve our cybersecurity. After four plus years of focusing on these challenges, I will be nominated as the next President of the University of California to play a role in educating our nation’s next generation of leaders. I thank President Obama for the chance to serve our nation during this important chapter in our history, and I know the Department of Homeland Security will continue to perform its important duties with the honor and focus that the American public expects.”

Debate: Should Conservatives Accept a Carbon Tax?

6967781823-2

The R Street Institute and the Heartland Institute cordially invite you to a debate among friends on the question: Are there any circumstances under which conservatives should support a tax on carbon emissions?

Though the participants all share a broad vision of smaller and less expansive government, they have widely divergent views on the advisability of a carbon tax. Arguing against adopting a carbon tax will be James Taylor, senior fellow at the Heartland Institute, and David Kreutzer, research fellow at the Heritage Foundation. Opposite them will be Andrew Moylan, senior fellow at the R Street Institute, and Bob Inglis, executive director at the Energy and Enterprise Initiative. Moderating will be Ronald Bailey, science correspondent for Reason magazine, who has written extensively about these complicated issues.

This is not a debate about climate science or man’s role in changing weather patterns. It is a debate about the structure of tax policy and whether a carbon tax lies inside or outside the bounds of the debaters’ shared conservative principles.

Open bar and light hors d’oeuvres will be provided.
