As Twitchy reported, others noticed the uncanny resemblance during the State of the Union address. On Sunday, Larry Elder noticed it as well.

Donna Brazile: ‘NRA’s solution to any problem is to shoot it’

http://twitter.com/#!/donnabrazile/status/316305925768089600

The National Rifle Association reported a significant surge in membership in the weeks following the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre, but did all of those people really understand what they were signing up for? A vigorous defense of their Second Amendment rights in the face of an opportunistic gun grab? No. According to Democrat strategist Donna Brazile, the NRA comprises people living in fear who just want more guns to shoot any problem that should arise.

Trying to reduce gun violence by having more ppl w/guns is like trying to prevent fires by placing open containers of gasoline everywhere.

— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) March 25, 2013

We don’t need more guns. People don’t want to live in fear. Well, anybody who thinks that we need more guns probably already lives in fear.

— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) March 25, 2013

In 2012, we had mass shootings in a movie theater, Mall, a temple, and an elementary schools. Common sense gun safety is the goal. Agree?

— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) March 25, 2013

Who could disagree with the goal of “common sense gun safety”? Forget the NRA’s extensive network of firearms instructors, coaches and counselors, though. Common sense gun safety means firing two shotgun blasts into the darkness when you feel threatened, right? It also means banning co-eds from carrying guns on campus “safe zones” in their own best interest.

We can spend 2013 getting things done, or we can spend it goofing off. How much will we get done? Gun safety reform is important.

— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) March 25, 2013

Any questions or comments from those gun nuts out there in the NRA?

*I* AM THEY. RT @donnabrazile: They want more guns! When you get down to it, the NRA’s solution to any problem is to shoot it.

Monica Crowley apologizes for comment that set off Twitter firestorm; Lefties don’t apologize for theirs

http://twitter.com/#!/MonicaCrowley/status/195909129385160704

Still waiting for apologies from those on the Left who spewed abuse and horribly vile comments at Monica Crowley, as well as at anyone who dared defend her. The hateful and revolting tweeted comments are still coming in as of this posting.

@MonicaCrowley Wait a minute, where are the apologies to you, I too was offended by vile comments to you and so can I demand apologies too

Tolerance: Dana Loesch reports hater hoping her kids are ‘blown up’

http://twitter.com/#!/DLoesch/status/528191822401519616

Dana Loesch’s book “Hands Off My Gun” is now available, and Loesch cited it today:

Cue anti-gun nut…

Loesch immediately was blamed for the death of “thousands”:

Ah, tolerance!

Great idea!

But it got worse:

Why is it the ones claiming to be anti-violence often resort to that kind of deranged, hateful lunacy?

Sick, twisted, but not surprising.

Brace for the disgusting double-down:

Ironically, @NickTheAlexis87 is described in his profile as a “feminist.”

From what?

Desperate libs freak over Romney’s swoon-worthy ‘I love Ann’ pic

http://twitter.com/#!/KiraPollack/status/251317919961714688

Well, that oughta put a dent in the “Romney is a heartless monster” lapdoggery pushed by the liberal press.

Time dug up this achived photo of a young lovesick Mitt wooing future wife Ann. And woo he did:

[A]round 1968, while serving as a Mormon missionary in France, a young Mitt made several photographs with the help of his LDS friends. He described how the photo was taken,  explaining that it was playfully staged for his high school girlfriend and soon-to-be wife, Ann Davies. Romney revealed that the photo is actually one of a series made during his time abroad.

Hey, girl. It’s Mitt.

And this photo (from 1968) is why more married woman love Mitt Romney…his devotion to his wife and boys. pic.twitter.com/qjEZMfgo

But never mind the heartwarming, romantic “awwww” factor. Romney was clearly a total creepster, according to this HuffPo editor.

Surprised Ann Romney didn't file for a restraining order when she saw that "I LOVE ANN" photo.

— Mike Hogan (@mike_hogan) September 27, 2012

Aw, did Time interrupt your frantic preparations to visit the “it tasted like chocolate” plaque where the Obamas shared their first kiss?

The desperate attempt to spin the adorable photo as a mark against Romney continues with typical Mormon bashing and rehashing of the failed “draft dodger” attack:

Reading is hard. And so is realizing

These Images May Look Fake, But They Are 100% Real…And Not Edited.

Photo editing is a common practice these days. It’s used for everything from making celebrities prettier to creating comedic images involving cats. Even if you have a pretty rudimentary background in software, you can download a program and fiddle around with it. Want a picture of yourself with your favorite actor? Done. Jet-skiing on a shark down a lava flow while battling aliens? Done.

Anymore, we’re all a little jaded. When you see a cool photo, you may wonder how it was edited. But the incredible pictures you see below? Someone was just in the right place at the right time and took an incredible picture that no one will believe.

1.) This rainbow laser mimics a Nyan Cat flyover

The government doesn’t want you to know that it wasa Nyan Cat flyover.

2.) This would be a terrible digital art piece, but it’s a great photo.

The red-object-in-black-and-white has become the cheesy, art-school staple of Photoshop jobs. This is not one of those. This hibiscus bloomed after its surroundings were coated in ash following a volcanic eruption in Indonesia.

3.) Color in the gray.

Like the hibiscus, this image was taken after the eruption of Japan’s Mt. Ontake in September 2014, which killed at least 50 people and trapped others under rock and ash. These are rescue workers arriving on the scene.

4.) At the end of the rainbow you’ll find…an SUV?

Probably more useful than a pot of gold.

5.) Ever want to go aboard a UFO?

This is actually a suite in Sweden’s Tree Hotel, where each suite, perched in the treetops has a unique design. This one was created by Bertil Harström.

6.) Here’s a less Earth-bound UFO

“No one will notice us if we pretend we’re a cloud.”

7.) Keep this enormous moth away from your sweaters.

The Attacus atlas is the world’s largest moth, with wingspans up to 10 inches. The tips of their wings also look like snake heads!

8.) Just a splash of color. A square splash

French artist Georges Rousse has been painting his perspective pieces in abandoned buildings since the 1980s.

9.) More perspective art…

This was created by street artist Aakash Nihilani using fluorescent green tape.

10.) Even more perspective art!

Artist Felice Varini is known for creating optical illusions with perspective art, making concentric circles and swooping lines across buildings and cityscapes, as well as (relatively) smaller pieces like this.

11.) That’s a lot of sheep.

This is the San Boldo Pass in the Italian Alps. It experiences regular sheep jams.

12.) Go deep sea diving without getting wet.

The Radisson Blu Hotel in Berlin offers visitors the chance to take and elevator ride through its two-story cylindrical aquarium, which is home to more than 1,500 fish. Scuba diving for aquarium personnel only. (Sorry)

13.) 8-bit cosplaying.

There are plenty of awesome Samus Aran (of Metroid fame) cosplays out there, but this clever, retro take on the iconic character also makes you do a double take.

14.) A perfect sunbeam sets this mountain alight.

Sometimes the sun comes through the mountains just right.

15.) No, look again.

It’s almost like these rhinos choreographed this. “Heh heh, silly humans.”

16.) “Just waiting for my pixelated train.”

This is a sculpture called “Maya” in the Bristol Temple Meads station in England. It was created by Luke Jerram, and was created using 5,000 12-mm square stickers on water-cut aluminum sheets. It’s three-dimensional

17.) A rooftop island

Someone in Beijing got sick of city life and constructed this mountainous oasis on the roof of their building. Of course, it’s not exactly legal, or safe, to do this, and the structure gained some notoriety.

18.) The day the ocean turned into beer

This is an actual weather phenomenon known as a shelf cloud, which happens when warm and cool air collide, forming a weirdly regular barrier, and they’re usually followed by a storm. This one may have picked up some dust, or is filtering the light at a certain angle, accounting for the color.

19.) They should probably put up a fence.

Artist Erik Johansson created this street illusion in 2011 in Stockholm’s Sergelstorg Square. Passerby had a lot of fun playing with it.

20.) The ghost of a tsunami.

These low-lying clouds swept over the Florida coast in 2012. This happens when air holding a lot of moisture experiences a drop in temperature. Cooler air can hold less moisture, so all the water condenses and forms a mist. These mist clouds evaporated again when they fell over the buildings and came into contact with warmer air again.

21.) A miniature, waterless aquarium.

This is known as an “ocean opal,” and features light-refracting facets as well as veins of other minerals, making it look like a tiny underwater scene trapped in stone.

22.) This house disappears into its desert surroundings

Lucid Stead is an art installation project by Phillip K. Smith. This 70-year-old homesteader’s shack was given a makeover with mirrored slats that make it appear to disappear into the landscape. It also lights up at night.

23.) The world’s fluffiest bunny

It might just be me, but the rabbit inside all that fluff (it’s an Angora) cannot possibly be enjoying this.

24.) Where the goth kids come from

This was actually an abandoned–and condemned–house in Germany. It was a popular spot for graffiti artists and could be seen covered in bright pieces of art. However, it was slated for demolition, and, as a farewell, artists Erik Sturm and Simon Jung painted it all black. The house was demolished, but you can still see it on Google Maps.

25.) Stained glass landscape

These are terraced rice paddies in China’s Yunnan Province. The colors come from algae that grows in the water-saturated paddies, as well as from reflections of the sky.

26.) Projections turn trees into faces monstrous and serene.

These light projections in Cambodia transformed ordinary trees into gods and demons. They were photographed by Clement Briend

27.) A dizzying cathedral ceiling

The Sagrada Família Cathedral in Barcelona was designed by Antoni Gaudi, who designed a lot of the city’s famous buildings. Construction on the church began in 1882, and is still not complete. It’s projected completion is in 2026, a century after Gaudi’s death.

28.) Rendering car…

It might look like an artist is about to place an image of a car in this photo, but that outline exists in the physical world. It’s a wire sculpture by artist Benedict Radcliffe.

29.) Do not adjust your screen

Though it looks like a screen glitch, this is actually an intricately-carved wooden cabinet by designer Ferruccio Laviani. It combines traditonal woodwork with a very modern visual phenomenon.

30.) World arm-wrestling champion is tired of your sophomoric jokes.

We’re sure Matthias Schlitte has heard all the jokes before; he even has the nickname “Hellboy.” He was actually born with a genetic defect that resulted in his right forearm bone 33% larger than his typically-proportioned left one. Which makes for good arm wrestling.

Now if those aren’t notable, I don’t know what is. You can chalk these up to deliberate creativity, being in the right place at the right time, or just plain weirdness. However they happened, it’s amazing what really goes on in the world!

Ratings for Saturday’s Dem debate signal ‘mission accomplished’ for the DNC

Last month, even Vox admitted that Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC were trying to schedule Democrat debates on nights when viewership would be down. Judging from the early numbers, that strategy was a success:

Conservatives welcome president’s reanimated Truth Team back to Twitter

http://twitter.com/#!/ExJon/status/363084583819935744

That was some nap. Organizing for Action’s @OFATruthTeam tonight issued its first tweet since Election Day, drawn out of hibernation to help the president sell Obamacare to a skeptical public. The Truth Team managed to stay quiet through all of those “phony scandals” that have popped up in the interim, but apparently there’s just too much “misinformation” floating around out there about the Affordable Care Act not to intervene. Besides, the president’s promised 100 percent of his time and energy to restoring the middle class, so he’s kind of busy — that’s where you come in.
