Cuba violates Obama’s ‘non-negotiable’ visit conditions without negotiation, so technically everything’s still cool

If you wanted to tell somebody what ingredients they’d need in order to cook up their own version of the Obama administration, the recipe would be “one cup obtuseness combined with one cup gullibility, stirred in thoroughly with a pound of arrogance.” Bake that for an hour and this is what you get…

The White House rhetoric in the past couple of weeks:

Sunday, just before Obama’s plane landed in Cuba:

The Obama administration will technically see no problem: The White House said their position was “non-negotiable,” and the Castro regime rounded up dissidents before Obama could visit with them, all without negotiation.

At this rate, by the time Obama comes back the Castros will own Miami.

Proof-positive that abortion providers are among the least self-aware people on the planet

This is a room at one of the Whole Woman’s Health clinics where “holistic abortions” are performed. Notice the quote on the wall:

What better place for this lyric to a Patti LeBelle song than on a wall next to where abortions are performed:

All I can tell you really is if you get to the point where someone is telling you that you are not great or not good enough, just follow your heart and don’t let anybody crush your dream.

Too bad the babies in that room don’t live long enough to read those words of wisdom.

Trump wins several states, wags finger at ‘so-called conservatives’ for wholesale criticism of Planned Parenthood

So is this really going to be the Republican nominee who will offer an enticing and principled alternative to Hillary?

“Look, Planned Parenthood has done very good work for many, many — for millions of women,” Trump said in a news conference Tuesday night. “And I’ll say it, and I know a lot of the so-called conservatives, they say that’s really … cause I’m a conservative, but I’m a common-sense conservative.”

Trump said he would not fund Planned Parenthood “as long as you have the abortion going on,” but noted the “millions of people — and I’ve had thousands of letters from women — that have been helped.”

“So called conservatives” even got the finger quote treatment — and Christie behind Trump looks like he’s waiting to ask for directions to the bus stop:

Hillary’s probably at 1600 Penn measuring for curtains (again) as we speak.

Planned Parenthood doesn’t seem moved by Trump’s recent acquiescence:

The Republican convention this summer might be anything but boring.

Having solved all other problems, Chuck Schumer sets sights on regulating airline seat size

The headline writes itself: “Giant ass seeks larger seats”:

A U.S. senator is demanding an end to the ever-shrinking plane seats as he complains airlines are squeezing passengers onto planes ‘like sardines’.

Airlines seats have been shrinking for decades as airlines try to squeeze every millimeter of profit from each flight. From a relatively roomy 35 inches of legroom and 18-inch-wide seats in the 1970s, today, cramped passengers can expect an average legroom of just 31 inches and 16.5-inch-wide seats.

But fed-up flyers may have their prayers answered, if a new law requiring seat-size guidelines gets approval.

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer is adding an amendment to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization Bill, which is pending before Congress.

Currently, there are no federal limits on how close an airline’s row of seats can be or how wide an airline’s seat must be.

As Schumer demonstrated a few years ago, sometimes the annoying thing about air travel isn’t the size of the seat, but the size of the jackass sitting in it.
