WILL SHE OR WON'T SHE? Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has a decision to make. Is she going to call an official vote to OFFICIALLY begin an impeachment inquiry? If she doesn't this is purely political. If it's not political, she needs to get everyone on the record.
WHY DOES DAVE SEND ME THESE STORIES???? This one about a guy with a spider in his ear has me freaking out at every minor tickle.
AND BETO GOES A BRIDGE TO FAR ON GAY MARRIAGE This was one of the many things people said would happen if gay marriage was legalized. Beto O'Rourke is now saying that churches should lose their tax exempt status if they don't consecrate gay marriage. He can suck it. This is a shameless pander to the gay lobby.

JUDGE BARBIE IS A THING NOW and I think it's kind of cool, although no girl ever clamored to put her Barbie in a shapeless black robe. But good on ya, Mattel, for giving girls unrealistic body types to strive for as they make their way to the bench.
WHERE ARE THE WEALTH SHAMERS FOR AOC? Yesterday I had a story about Kylie Jenner taking down an instagram shot of her new $3 million Bugatti after commenters shamed her for not feeding a village or something. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was shamed for getting a $300 haircut and her response? To double down and then ramble on about wealth inequality or something. Why didn't she to go to Fantastic Sams and then donate the rest to someone at the bottom end of the scale? It's a fair question now apparently.
