    No, no, it’s still way too hot to get dressed.

    • Seconded!

      • MasterDiver

        YEAH, They’re all too hot to be dressed!
        Remember, if you wear too many clothes, you only have to take them off anyway, so why bother?

        Zar Belk!

  • JTC

    The fittest…yes indeed.

    Lemmee get back to you on that political intrigue shit.

  • Pamela

    Implant? She have her boobs done?

    • Control chip? Monitor chip?

      • TomZ

        Yes.

    • Kafiroon

      Thanks Pamela, coffee spray… up the nose, monitor…

      • Pamela

        Sorry about that Kafiroon

        Are there protective shield for just this purpose or would saran wrap work just as well?

  • Grunt GI

    Thanks again Chris. So much excellent art and commentary.

    And Sam….damn dat butt.

  • As for a Ted Cruz endorsement? Well, sorta. He may not have said “I endorse”, but he did say that “The Donald will make an excellent POTUS”. Maybe that will allow the Cruzers to feel good about the vote.

  • Delilah T.

    I find Teddy’s butthurt ‘tude rather childish, but he did at least say ‘go vote’.

    I do not care which candied date you choose.

    I do care whether or not you go and vote in the fall.

    You only ‘throw’ your vote away when you fail to vote.

  • B Woodman

    Well said.
    But I didn’t know that Goldman Sachs dabbled in mind and body control implants.

  • B Woodman

    Yum. The ladies remind me of an old commercial, “So round. So firm. So fully packed.”

    • formwiz

      “…so easy on the draw”

      Lucky Strike.

      And a nice squeeze of that tush certainly would be.

      • Grape

        Lucky Strike green goes to war. Glad we don’t have those anymore.

        • Olddog

          The green ink cut too far into the profit margin.

  • KenH

    Shame Cruzie committed political suicide live on TV
    Only thing more complete he could have done is wear a suicide vest and pull it off screaming wallluuu snackbar and scattering his body parts around the stadium

    DONE
    FOREVER

    • Grape

      Can you commit suicide if you are already dead?

    • Very little in politics is “forever.” I have no skin in this fight, so I’ll just note that if:
      1. Trump flames out and gets buried by a Clinton landslide or
      2. Trump gets elected and proves to be the worst U.S. head of state since George III
      Then Cruz gets to say, “I told you so.”

      • You are absolutely correct, sir!

        All this Goldman Sachs B.S. with Cruz, when Trump wants to name a Goldman Sachs exec and Democrat donor (Steve Mnuchin) as his Sec. of Treasury.

        *SMH*

        • Browncoat

          ^^^ That!

  • herdgadfly

    Heidi Cruz was paid for her expertise at Goldman Sachs and was not running for president and Ted’s dad wasn’t with Oswald in Dallas. There is only one liar in this mix and his name is Trump. What would do you do if you are called a philanderer and your wife and Dad are attacked for no reason?

    • JLG

      Scratch out the term “self-respect” from his edition of Merriam-Webster?

    • Unca Walt

      Say: “Shit, I’m caught?”

    • JTC

      “What would do you do if you are called a philanderer and your wife and Dad are attacked for no reason?”

      Recognize the quid pro quo for the Enquirer article, the babe-on-a-plane layout, attacks on associations of Fred T. and then STFU before somebody really “spills the beans about Heidi”?

      No, Ted has proven his inability to STFU many times; it is his fatal flaw.

  • JLG

    The gold is in the glutes, not in the Sachs.

  • Bren

    I don’t have a problem with the word Endorse coming from Cruz.

    This whole campaign cycle has been a circus sideshow and the amount of poo being flung is beginning to grind on my last nerve.

    If Trump has a real enemy from this point forward, it’s his base. They are working very hard to alienate anybody not in sycophantic lockstep, and that ain’t the way classical liberals roll.

    • JTC

      “…that ain’t the way classical liberals roll.”

      No, they have the entire infotainment industry to do that.

      Prags (pragmatics) OTOH, know that war requires warriors, only Patriots need apply. Trump is only marginally relevant to what is to come, while Cruz, gopes, etc. have marginalized themselves to irrelevance.

      The base is the movement, call it lockstep, or preference cascade, or preparation; your labelling (that’s what classic libs do) also is irrelevant.

  • pyrodice

    don’t care, too many false-flag candidates…

  • Hardball

    Naomi’s are best

  • Steveb919

    I think Heidi looks nice but Ted committed political suicide.

  • Bongo Bob

    Has anyone considered the possibility that Cruz and Trump are working together on this? Trump lives on “controversy” and that is exactly what Cruz has provided.

    And guess what? Trump’s number have surged because of it!

    I think Trump and Cruz are playing a political version of ‘Good Cop/Bad Cop” with the voters.

    And, it is working!

    • Hmmm, thought…

  • Bill G

    This whole election cycle is a disaster.
    I’m voting for ta-tas and tushies.

    • Kafiroon

      So, no Hillery?

  • Shooter 2.3

    We will see. We don’t have a Republican running on the Republican ticket who’s anti-gun and pro-hillary comments from the past may resurface. Trump has only one advantage and that is he’s not as bad as hillary. That doesn’t say much.

  • Contrarian View

    They called Reagan a traitor in ’76 and did all they could to prevent him in
    ’80, he won anyway because the citizens came to realize who he really was.

    Trump crossed the line when he made vile, dishonest, personal attacks against Cruz’s family. If you are a man, rather than a 21st-century mannikin, you know that standing up for your family trumps political bandwagoning in the poker game of manly honor. I think that after four years of the Trump circus, Americans will be starving for someone who understand and cares about America. They will recognize that Cruz is that man.

    Cruz didn’t say NeverTrump. You can correctly interpret his speech as guidance for Trump, and asking us not to do the unconscionable thing which is voting for Clinton (either overtly or by abstention). Cruz can easily “redeem” his standing by speaking forcefully against Clinton and the Demonrats over the next three months.

    And after four years of Hillary? America doesn’t survive four years under Hillary.

    • RooftopVoter

      Sorry, Cruz isn’t anywhere NEAR Reagan.

      I watched it live both times, if you doubt me the archival footage is available.

      Cruz acted like the petulant 5 year old who took his ball home to show the other kids.

      I could have supported him before, not now.

    • JTC

      CV, see my response to Bren above as to crossing lines.

      If Reagan’s corpse was running, he’d have my vote (again).

      But please don’t sully his memory with comparisons to Cruz, or Trump for that matter. He’s gone, and it’s up to us now.

      • RooftopVoter

        JTC, the only valid comparison between Trump and Reagan in my mind is both are effective communicators ( different methods, oy vey! ), and both have a genuine love and concern for their fellow citizens above their own ambitions.

        Yep, Trump is no Reagan, but he is the closest thing we have seen since Ronnie.

  • “Er, how long do you cook one of those?”

    Until they turn red. 🙂

    • JTC

      “how long do you cook one of those? (porcupine, crab)”

      Don’t know, but you can ask Ted how to cook your goose. 🙂

  • JTC

    Have I voiced my appreciation for that fine hiney? Thanks Chris.

    I’ll say it again; I’m an Ass Man. And that right there is an Ass.

  • azscram

    Chris, the swimming hole has been a nice break from this Arizona heat. Many thanks.

    • Grunt GI

      Not to mention a wonderful break from the lunacy going on in our country.

      It’s interesting to see all the liberals talk about how Trump is such a fear monger.

      WELL, YEA, people are afraid…for their safety, their jobs and their country and all Hillary and her ilk can do is say, “You stupid hicks are just afraid of people who don’t look like you.” Which is, of course, some passive racism there.

      But, instead of making a PLAN or even acknowledging the fear, they just keep mocking us…well…now we’ll see if they can mock their way to victory in November.

  • azscram

    Barring any new candidates coming to the field, Gary Johnson will get my vote. Both of the parties currently in power have proven that they are corrupt with power to the point of subverting the Constitution. Trump doesn’t have the moral fiber to lead the nation, IMHO, and Hillary, well, that’s just plain stupid.

    • gafling

      … Ah-h-h … so you are voting in Hillary then. Too bad.

      • Oliver Heaviside

        I’m voting Johnson, too. Since Hillary will carry my state by a wide margin, my vote is symbolic only, and there is little in either “major” candidate that I can truly get excited about.

  • Oliver Heaviside

    There’s bloody little about Cruz that I’m a huge fan of, but for him to be honest and true to principles and not endorse Trump is fine with me. Cruz is serious about his Christianity. Trump worships Mammon.

  • Erik

    Garry Kasparov’s reaction to Trump’s speech sums things up beautifully:

    “I’ve heard this sort of speech a lot in the last 15 years and trust me, it doesn’t sound any better in Russian.”

  • Spin Drift

    It looks like Munich is going up the “aloha snackbar” pass. Though this is unconfirmed by witnesses the pisslamic state is claiming ownership. Oh well, another Friday, another mooselimb goes out of his mind. This time the perps targeted children. I wonder how fast the Germans are going to go from “this is amusing” to full “jackboot.” Jungle rules anyone?

    Spin

    P.S. How long before there are more calls for gun control here?

  • Browncoat

    I’m really surprised that so many here are ready to burn Cruz at the stake and go ‘all-in’ on Trump with the complete lack of integrity and class he’s shown but I guess I shouldn’t be.

    Somebody had to ‘tickle the ears’ of the masses and the ‘Donald’ came along and has millions ignoring everything he’s done for 30 plus years but hanging on to every word he’s spoken or Tweeted like it’s the Gospel for the last 18 months.

    “A cult of personality arises when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods to create an idealized, heroic and, at times, worshipful image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise. Sociologist Max Weber developed a tripartite classification of authority; the cult of personality holds parallels with what Weber defined as “charismatic authority”. A cult of personality is similar to divinization, except that it is established by mass media and propaganda usually by the state, especially in totalitarian states.

      Verify then trust. Plus keep a hairy eyeball out on the periphery of sight

    • JTC

      Browncoat, if you’re at all familiar with the author and regular commenters here, what is surprising is that your are so totally tonedeaf to the actual reasoning for the support of the Trump phenomenon, but before I explain it (again) let me just say that your snide little remark is beyond insulting and smacks of a false flag intent, as that final quoted paragraph is a dead-on description of socialist/progressive mindset in general, and Obama cultism in particular. Incredible arrogance and ignorance on your part.

      Anyway, as I’ve said before and as I said upthread, the pissed-on and pissed-off electorate that is the heart and soul of America that has been reviled and relegated to second class status by the elites in control, and sold out and abandoned by the party that purported to represent them, is what has propelled Trump. He is an unproven entity but has shown the willingness, wherewithal and balls to say and promise to do many of the things that need to be said and done. But make no mistake; he is only marginally relevant to the groundswell of anger and support that propelled him to the nomination and hopefully propels him to the presidency. It is the conservative/libertarian/pragmatic electorate, the moral and heretofore silent majority, that is driving and running this preference cascade, and that will either provide the backing to enact the critically needed restructuring and renovation of fedgov, or the militia to defend and/or detach from a government that is no longer with us, of us or for us.

      Trump is a figurehead; the people -we- are the bulk and the body of this movement. And that is what burned Cruz; he bailed out on the people as soon as his feelings were hurt, and has not only shown a lack of integrity and credibility in reneging on a solemn promise, but attempted to sabotage the election and sacrifice his own people to get personal revenge. To him, it’s all about him.

      That is somewhat true of Trump too, though his belief in himself is based on actual accomplishment and the knowledge that he is propelled by the most powerful grassroots political movement that this nation has ever seen. May he, and we, have the Grace and the Blessings of God in accomplishing what must be accomplished, because failure in this case very likely means the failure and final gasp of the American Republic and freedom.

      Get it now? Nah, I didn’t think so.
