A nice short roundup of anti-Hillary street art on display here.

Not seen that website before: gotnews.com. Looks to be a startup from Charles C. Johnson, a name I have seen around (but not to be confused with the Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs).

It’s got a lot of original reporting on Brandon Bostian, the engineer who crashed that Amtrak train. Including his online dick pics with the dicks tactfully blurred away. Which is horrible in an indefinable way.

Me, I came down with a nasty head cold over the weekend, so I’m’a sneak off and…drink Jack Daniel’s or something.

Poor dear! Hot toddy time: Jack, lemon, honey – but you knew that!

Thanks for the HRC-inspired street art. Many grins!

Feel better or we’ll kill you! (-:

When you feel better, I hope you’ll do up something in honor of George Stephanopoulos. A flying monkey with the wicked witch would be great.

In the meantime, perhaps Uncle Badger will make this for you:
Perfect Hot Toddy
1 oz bourbon and 2 oz water boiled together.
Stir in 1 tablespoon of honey and 2 teaspoons lemon juice.

This is a well-balanced and delicious combination of ingredients. Not too sweet, not too tart, not too boozy. Measure carefully and resist the urge to add more bourbon. If you want more bourbon, you should double the recipe. This beats anything from the drug store and you won’t feel fuzzy in the morning. Drat—I just looked at the time.

Cheers! 🙂

I don’t have any bourbon. It was my mother’s tipple, and somehow I could never stand the smell.

Oh, dear. That’s got kind of a Flannery O’Connor thing going, doesn’t it?

I started a Stephanopoulos as lapdog P’shop, but it looked dumb and I felt bad so I gave up on it.

Chicken soup always works for me.

I hope that suggesting it is not indelicate.

Well I’ve never tried it with vodka, but how bad could it be—and it’s only 1 oz. of liquor.

I never cared much for bourbon either, but a few years ago my D.I.L. broke her leg (a horrible break, too), and I went to stay for a month. After we got his Mrs. settled in for the night, my son would pour me a little shot of bourbon ’round bedtime (and a double for himself), and we’d sit on the porch and talk. It sorta reset my taste buds for bourbon. I bought a bottle of Jim Beam as soon as I got home.

Hot Apple Cider works for American Badgers. Perhaps for expat Weasels, too?

Wild Turkey 101, straight up. It might not cure your cold, but you definitely won’t give a shit.

Bourbon, honey and lemon juice. Repeat as needed.

Nyquil with a frozen Jagermeister chaser. Works like a charm.

My personal variation on the disease-fighting-toddy is

Black Seal Rum
Darjeeling tea
A splash or thin slice of lemon

However, I am open to new suggestions and recipes… I am fairly well convinced that Hillary is going to be our next President no matter what, and I therefore intend to stay obliviously drunk at least until November 2016, and perhaps permanently thereafter.

Use whatever booze you have stashed away in the linen closet. We’re after the alcohol, not the flavor esters.

Mark Twain tried something similar.

I finally concluded to visit San Francisco, and the first day I got here a lady at the Lick House told me to drink a quart of whisky every twenty-four hours, and a friend at the Occidental recommended precisely the same course.

Each advised me to take a quart – that makes half a gallon. I calculate to do it or perish in the attempt.

Whisky is nasty dehydrating in large quantities. That’s the secret. Plus aspirin for the inevitable headache.
