At least nobody is dead.

What this means, politically, who knows.

I'm sure they'll find someone with brown skin to scapegoat.

Sounds like Flake acted quickly and helped the wounded until paramedics arrived. He deserves praise and recognition for that.

(Flake is Mormon, which means he was probably a Boy Scout; I don't know anything about missionary training but I assume emergency first aid is taught there, too.)

Hey, Pissbaby.

When 49 people were killed and more injured in Orlando, where were your solemn and measured statements then?

That's right. You were spiking the football about calling the shooter a radical Islamic terrorist, not expressing condolences and care for the dead and their families.

You only bust out your condolences and care for when the victims are your political allies, and the only dead is the suspect.

You disgust me, Pissbaby. Delete your Twitter account and never talk again.

Based on his facebook account, the shooter was a huge Berniebro and lost his job (or had to close his one-man company - it's not clear) in December.

Also, an unspecified second person was seen asking people beforehand if it was democrats or republicans playing out there.

Apparently Scalise is in critical condition.

If he dies because of this, holy fuck...

Yeah, they've already updated it to 58 dead in the latest reports, and that could easily go far higher.

Scalise upgraded from critical to serious. Not out of the woods yet, but it looks like he and everybody else will survive. (Except the shooter, who died the day of the attack.)

Flake saved his life; I don't think there's any question. Guy deserves a medal.

Apparently the Glenfell Tower death toll would have been higher if it wasn't for some devout muslims observing Ramadan.

Bill Cosby plans to teach young people how to not get accused of sexual assault

Honestly I thought that this article title was from the Onion at first

I can say with confidence that I'm better at not being accused of sexual assault than Bill Cosby.

...no, I mean, I'm not THAT much better.

...shit, this is coming out all wrong.

Maybe Bill Cosby IS better than this, shit he's got 40 more years of experience, damn.

This is a man who had to be reminded to put his hand over his heart during the national anthem.

I thought about doing another annotated one but... why go to all that trouble?
