National Association of Hispanic Journalists to DOCTOR Jill Biden: "We Are Not Tacos"
¿Por qué los liberales son tan racistas?
It’s been a while since DOCTOR Jill Biden did anything to entertain us. Usually we just see her leading Joe around by the elbow and whispering urgent instructions to him. But yesterday, at something called a “Latinx IncluXion Luncheon,” DOCTOR Jill really stepped in it:
“Raul [Yzaguirre] helped build this organization with the understanding that the diversity of this community — as distinct as the BO-guh-duhs of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio — is your strength.”
I’d like to go to a BO-guh-duh sometime. Maybe they have some of that Mexican co-KA-co-LUH.
And how about those Latinos and their tacos, right? Everybody knows how much those people like tacos! Muchos tacos, por FAY-vor!
Well, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists sure didn’t like that one:
So, who wins here? As we’re reminded daily by our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters, any dispute between a white person and a non-white person is the fault of the white person. That’s a law.
But as the libs also remind us, only Republicans can be racists. And DOCTOR Jill obviously isn’t a Republican.
This is a tough one. Let’s just call it a draw. Sin daño, sin falta!
Update: “Lo siento,” says DOCTOR Jill’s press flack.
Wait… what happened to “Latinx”? Are we not doing “Latinx” anymore?
In other Biden family news:
Can’t a U.S. president pay for his son’s hookers and cocaine without everybody getting all up in his business? They’re family.
Lib journos are already circling around poor ol’ Joe like a pack of hungry wolves. Once they decide he’s outlived his usefulness to them, they’ll use his son’s drug-fueled antics to push him out. They’ll pretend they never protected Hunter because they hated Bad Orange Man so much.
All Brett Kavanaugh needs to do is declare nonbinary status and switch to they/them pronouns. Then they’ll be protected. The merest criticism of them will be considered transphobic, let alone chasing them out of restaurants and going to their house to kill them.
Remember when Biden accused those Border Patrol agents of whipping illegal aliens, even though it never happened? Drew Holden remembers:
Read the whole thread. None of those people will ever apologize for the lie, or even acknowledge they told it. That’s not how this works.
Not that you asked, but Chris Cuomo is now posting selfies from Ukraine:
Yeah, okay, Chris. Get home safe, I guess?
Blue-on-blue violence is your best entertainment value:
Yaaaaas, kween. Drag those NYT homophobes!
This probably isn’t funny.
This anchor, Heather Kovar at WRGB in Albany, NY, has been suspended. Which hardly seems fair, considering this is the only local newscast I’ve sat through in the last 20 years. They’ve got ratings gold on their hands!
ATTN all space nerds:
Those aren’t stars. They’re galaxies.
According to NASA:
This first image from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope is the deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe to date... Thousands of galaxies – including the faintest objects ever observed in the infrared – have appeared in Webb’s view for the first time. This slice of the vast universe covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on the ground.
Uhhhh… hhhuh-huh-huh… they said “deepest”!

Here’s a sentence you never want to hear from Mike Ehrmantraut: “Alright, here’s what’s gonna happen...”
Wow. That was definitely worth the wait. I don’t know how the writers did it, but I didn’t see things playing out that way, yet it’s the only way it could’ve played out. Of course that’s what happened. Of course.
The final episode will need to wrap up Gene Takovic’s story, right? They’re obviously saving that for the very end. And what we just saw changes everything between Jimmy and Kim. So that gives us four more episodes to find out what happened to her.
I don’t think she died, or needed to get relocated by Ed Galbraith the gruff but fair vacuum-cleaner guy, or anything as dramatic as that. She just couldn’t stand to look at Jimmy anymore, because he was a constant reminder of what they did to Howard. Jimmy’s face was an emblem of how far she let herself fall, so she left him.
I’m picturing the final scene of the series:
Kim is living in Nebraska, where she grew up, and one day she goes to a certain mall in Omaha and sees Jimmy working at Cinnabon. Maybe she’s there with a new husband, maybe even a kid or two. She recognizes Jimmy instantly. Their eyes meet, and they both freeze. Her eyes flick down to his name tag: “Gene.”
They both try to think of something to say. But what’s left to be said? They’re not the same people anymore and never will be again. They’re strangers to each other.
Then the moment passes and Kim walks away. Gene gets back to work. This is his life now.
Nah, it’ll probably be better than that.
