No Seth Meyers, I will NOT wear pants to the ice cream store.
you’ve really gotta hand it to short people
because we usually can’t reach it anyways
This is literally the entire premise of this show.
John Boehner, Asshole of the Day for July 31, 2014
There’s a crisis at the border. The House GOP has been working on a bill for weeks. But then today they pulled it after it became clear it didn’t have the votes to pass.
This situation shows the intense concern within our conference – and among the American people – about the need to ensure the security of our borders and the president’s refusal to faithfully execute our laws. There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries. For the past month, the House has been engaged in intensive efforts to pass legislation that would compel the president to do his job and ensure it can be done as quickly and compassionately as possible. Through an inclusive process, a border bill was built by listening to members and the American people that has the support not just of a majority of the majority in the House, but most of the House Republican Conference. We will continue to work on solutions to the border crisis and other challenges facing our country.
Let me summarize this for you:
- Obama can solve this with unilateral action
- But we worked on a bill to solve it for a month anyways
- We can’t agree on how to solve it
- But we still expect Obama to solve it, even though we can’t agree on a plan
- We’ll blame him if he doesn’t solve it unilaterally
- Oh, and we’re still suing Obama for his unilateral action on Obamacare
- See you in 5 weeks after our vacation!
Or more simply you might summarize it as:
We won’t let our vacation get canceled just because 50,000 refugee kids need help. That’s Obama’s problem.
And I’m not exaggerating here. By 3PM congressman had already begun leaving town. The same congressmen who spent yesterday voting on Boehner’s plan to sue the president for taking unilateral action on Obamacare.
So, for suing Obama yesterday for taking unilateral action, and then saying Obama should solve the border crisis through unilateral action today, John Boehner is Asshole of the Day.
It is John Boehner's 11th time as Asshole of the Day.

I am deeply ashamed that this man is from my state, and wish I could vote him out. Unfortunately, he is not in my district. :(
i know nothing about politics but i do know that i laughed the whole way through reading about how republicans in the house of representatives are suing obama for “inadequate enforcement of the health care law [Affordable Care Act] they oppose.”
i wanna get into politics strictly because it’s the funniest form of comedy there is.

I adore Max Ernst. Ernst was a German artist born around the end of the 19th century. He worked in paint, sculpture, graphic arts, and poetry and was a pioneer in both the Dada and Surrealist movements. His reflections on the nature of art speak to me on a deeply personal level, especially when he says things like: “Creativity is that marvelous capacity to grasp mutually distinct realities and draw a spark from their juxtaposition.” That’s kind of just how I live my life.
I created this using plain white sketchbook paper, silver and black Sharpies, and pieces of art from comic books I had lying around and needed to get rid of. (She-Hulk #1, X-Treme X-Men #2, Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson’s A Tale of Sand, Nosh and Barry and Eddie and Joe, & JLA #91) I put it up twice so that I could show the colors from the art, but also represent it in black and white as most of Ernst’s collage is reproduced.
This is my first attempt at artistic collage and it was a lot of fun. I don’t know that I’ll ever be amazing at it, but I am definitely going to try something like this again. I’m incredibly happy to have The Art Assignment to spur me on to attempt things I wouldn’t otherwise. Thanks, team!
charmingpplincardigans does it again! This is wonderful. Thanks.
What a clever way for this artist to celebrate his childhood.
We have a new show on the way, and it involves Swaim looking like this. (Makeup by @jaydolfbitler) #StarshipIcarus
