Oh, Alabama, this idiot is going to be your senior US Senator

https://www.al.com/politics/2022/10/alabama-leader-reacts-to-tommy-tuberville-the-bull-is-that-this-guy-is-a-us-senator.html



Leaders in Alabama and beyond are reacting to Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s comments on how Democrats are in favor of reparations because they are “pro-crime.”

Alabama Democratic Party Chair Rep. Chris England said on Twitter that the comments were “bullshit”-- the same word Tuberville used to describe Democrats’ support of “reparation.”

“There is some bullshit here but it isn’t what (Tuberville) thinks it is. The bullshit is that this guy is a United States Senator in the first place,” England posted.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Is The Stupides Woman In Congress

MTG is so stupid, her shoes are labeled "TGIF". It stands for "Toe Goes In First".

MTG is so stupid, she has a sign on her mirror that says "Breathe". It's not a calming technique, it's so she remembers.

We could go on and on, but I'll leave it to you to add to the hilarity!

Russian Maj. Gen. Vladimir Frolov of the 8th Army died in battle in Ukraine and was buried in Russia on Saturday, according to a statement from the governor of St. Petersburg.

The statement from Alexander Beglov offered no details of when or where Frolov was killed. As deputy commander of the 8th Army, Frolov commanded forces deployed to an area near Mariupol, the devastated port city that Russia appears on the verge of capturing.

Russian state media outlet Fontanka reported that Beglov claimed Frolov, whom he described as “a true patriot,” “fell the death of the brave.”

1920.in

This is a website that lets anyone send a text message to a random Russian telephone number.

It was set up by a group in Poland and based on my limited usage it seems to work well. Some numbers are iPhones and others are not, but this is one way to get around the news blockade that Putin has imposed. I don’t know what impact it’ll have, but it’s something that anyone can do.

Protective barriers erected at Russian embassy after truck drives through gates

I love me some Irish! I've been to Dublin, so I know where the American Embassy and the Israeli Embassy are, but not the Russian one. I'd contribute to a GoFundMe for this guy! Or at least buy him some Guinness!

Excerpt: The Russian embassy in Ireland says it “appreciates” the cooperation of Irish authorities after a large truck was driven through its gates on Monday afternoon.

The embassy had initially accused the Government of violating international law for allowing the incident to happen, and claimed members of the Garda “stood idle” as the incident happened.

In a follow-up statement, however, the embassy said: “We would like to inform that additional measures have been undertaken by the Garda to ensure safety and security of the embassy and its personnel. The embassy appreciates cooperation by the Irish authorities in this matter.”

Security barriers had been erected on Monday evening creating a buffer between the embassy and protesters.

Happy Twosday, everyone!

Just something to hopefully cause a smile (or a grimace, maybe).
