Good grief! Is nothing sacred? Not even Santa?

Just spotted in the U.S. Capitol: Santa Claus headed to the Speaker’s Office. Yes, really. Discuss.

Having “Santa” visit Boehner’s office only further speaks to the childlike intellect of liberalism.

— Donny Ferguson (@DonnyFerguson) December 12, 2012

Bingo!

But, wait, was it Santa Claus or “Santa Clause,” as the White House calls him?

On the plus side, Santa kept his clothes on, unlike the last visitors to Boehner’s office. Shudder.

Joan Walsh fantasizes Romney undergoes transvaginal ultrasound; Updated

http://twitter.com/#!/joanwalsh/status/249234489954410496

Keeping it classy, huh, Joan? Today’s daily emetic is brought to you by Salon’s editor at large, and super classy broad, Joan Walsh.

So… @joanwalsh is a weirdo. https://t.co/9fOtMUfm

— RB (@RBPundit) September 21, 2012

And “weirdo” is putting it mildly. Another liberal dame obsessed with girly bits.

@joanwalsh You are one sick woman

https://twitter.com/HoagTim/status/249240114197307392

This time, with more creepy and sick  fantasy. By the way, leftist women keep telling us that a transvaginal ultrasound is the same as rape. So, is she have a sick rape fantasy now? Or do they only absurdly and shamefully equate it to rape when they can use and abuse women?

Update:

Aww, poor Joan responds and tries to make a funny and repeat the tiresome “war on women” nonsense.

My #tcot followers are HORRIFIED by my mention of a transvaginal ultrasound. Now they'll all oppose laws that force them on women! Whew!

— Joan Walsh (@joanwalsh) September 21, 2012

She fails.

@joanwalsh I think we're just surprised you didn't write it on your hands and put it on instagram.

Zing! Is a creepy cult #ForAll photo next? Try to outdo Messina and Axelrod, if you dare, Joan!

More Than 2,000 People Just Came Together To Sing The ‘Hallelujah’ Chorus

During a recent performance by a famous church choir, something happened that left the Internet buzzing. While the choir’s traditional renditions of beloved songs are incredible, the singers decided to do something a little bit different this time.

The beginning looks like any other performance, but watch what happens about a minute in. It really is a testament to the power of music.

Technology sometimes creates distance between people, but in cases like this, it helps thousands of voices come together in the most moving way.

Instapundit slams ‘legally illiterate’ Cornel West for Ferguson remarks

http://twitter.com/#!/feelmytweets/status/521748874063400960

Academic and activist Cornel West was arrested Monday as part of a civil disobedience campaign that capped off a weekend of #FergusonOctober protests.

— Craig Cheatham (@CheathamKMOV) October 13, 2014

While many supporters were shocked at what they saw as yet another overreach by police, West himself said he had come to Ferguson to be arrested.

"It's a beautiful thing 2 see people on fire for justice, but I didn't come here 2 give a speech…I came here to go to jail" – Cornel West

@Kristyannasmom @CheathamKMOV Of course he wanted that to happen – that's why he's there – getting big picture in news!

@Kristyannasmom @CheathamKMOV It's called civil disobedience, a choice that comes with legal consequences. That's the whole point.

@wfmccl Yep, only way he gets attention. That's all this is about.. Attention. @CheathamKMOV

— Michele (@Kristyannasmom) October 13, 2014

And while West said he wasn’t in town to give a speech, he did speak long enough to utter something ridiculous.

Not everyone appreciated West’s presence in Ferguson in the first place.

Take note how Cornel West is the story and not the #FergusonOctober movement. #StayWoke

Thousands in Cairo join Muslim Brotherhood’s pro-Morsi rally for ‘legitimacy and Shariah’

http://twitter.com/#!/Nervana_1/status/274847272502689794

Thousands of Islamists gathered near Cairo University today to rally in support of Shariah law and Mohamed Morsi, the Egyptian president who recently granted himself dictatorial powers.

http://twitter.com/cliffcheney/statuses/274827106960158721

Organized by the Muslim Brotherhood, the rally follows a week of large anti-Morsi demonstrations and the passage of a draft constitution by an Islamist-led assembly.

People chanting : “we love you oh Morsi” sign says “rule belongs to Allah alone” #Egypt

Oops: Students outraged by deal to prevent student loan rates from doubling

http://twitter.com/#!/SandiBehrns/status/218830317446901761

Great news, college students! You know that student loan rate hike you and President Obama have been whining about incessantly? Well, Congress voted Friday to freeze the rate at 3.4 percent for one more year.

Now you can take out hefty loans to pay for career-advancing courses on “The Phallus” and “The Unbearable Whiteness of Barbie” at Obama’s alma mater and you won’t suffer the untenable burden of an extra $7 a month in interest.

So why the frowny faces?

https://twitter.com/Fem2_Barrister/status/219057315100377090

Aw, you thought preventing the rates from doubling to 6.8 percent could be done with the awesome power of unicorn dollars and rainbow dreams alone?

Next semester, try math courses.

The federal government isn’t an unlimited pot of gold at the end of Obama’s rainbow. Due to previous compromises, the six-month post-graduation grace period for new undergraduate loans will no longer be subsidized. Oh, and beginning in July, Uncle Sam won’t foot the interest bill for grad students while they’re still in school. That subsidy was already eliminated to help fund loans for low-income students.

Surprise!

Recent graduates no longer have a grace period to find a job before they pay interest on their loans. Words cannot describe… #studentloan

That’s what happens when you blindly take your marching orders from the White House and DNC tools like Sandra Fluke. #DontDoubleMyRate isn’t looking like such a sweet hashtag now, is it?

Next time, don’t screech about passing the bill before finding out what is — and isn’t — in it.

These 32 Bad Translations Are The Worst The World Has Ever Seen…LOLOL!

English is a notoriously difficult language to learn as an adult. There are countless ways to mess it up and the grammar rules are downright insane. That’s why, in many foreign countries, the English translations you find can be hilarious. They’re especially bad (and also awesome, in a way) in countries that use a different alphabet. When people in Asian countries attempt to make bi-lingual signs or products… the resulting “Engrish” is just too good NOT to love.

1.) Is that a haiku?

2.) Kissing sounds? Adorable!

3.) That’s not the only thing.

4.) These can be so tricky.

5.) Aww, that’s so sweet.

6.) What?! My favorite.

7.) At least they know their buffet food is gross.

8.) I absolutely HATE tense chicken feet.

9.) Nacho Hippo? Nothing can go wrong here.

10.) NOOOOO! I thought that was just a conspiracy theory.

11.) BURNNNNN.

12.) They always think they are holier than thou, too.

13.) No. No I won’t.

14.) More lawns need to feel confident about their emotions.

15.) Rushing: what you do when you really have to pee.

16.) Ummm. Thanks?

17.) But where can I get coffee, then?

18.) Ugh, those are the worst.

19.) Because old crap would be gross.

20.) I’ll have the “Ugh, whatever.” please.

21.) That sweet, sweet tiny grass.

22.) Heyyyy, back off, okay? I enjoy my meal how I see fit.

23.) Sorry, man, I can’t control the rain.

24.) Ah yes, that ancient and wise phrase.

25.) And I will not.

26.) Ah yes, his classic catchphrase.

27.) That just sounds like an insult.

28.) Is that an offer or a command?

29.) At least they don’t pretend to know why.

30.) That’s convincing.

31.) Okay, sure?

32.) This is a mint for your mouth, right?

Traveling through different countries around the world can be an awesome experience, even if it’s just to experience the awful English translations. Share these hilarious typos and mistakes by clicking below; you’ll make someone’s day.

Snark attack! Ron Fournier has a very ‘special’ tweet for Eric Boehlert

http://twitter.com/#!/ron_fournier/status/403897892814872576

For the uninitiated, #FF stands for “follow Friday.”

We’ve always kind of wondered if @EricBoehlert was a parody account. For example:

Comedian Mike Birbiglia favorited that tweet by National Journal’s Ron Fournier.
