That Time Batgirl was Almost Killed by a Wig

In the late ’60s, the mighty maestros of DC Comics had a brainstorm: Spin Robin and Batgirl into solo adventures in the back pages of “Detective Comics.”

If you were a fan of the Bat-sidekicks hoping to see them take on some of Batman’s notorious rogues by themselves or perhaps even develop their own gallery of colorful enemies, you had to be disappointed.

Robin fought campus crime, and the stories were even more boring than this sentence suggests.

Batgirl battled run-of-the-mill thieves and killers.

But there is one Batgirl story that stands out, even after all these years.

It’s a Gotham City-sized crater of stupidity.

The Supreme Court is Coming for Gays Next

As if the Supreme Court’s historic reversal of Roe v. Wade wasn’t enough today, Judge Clarence Thomas, husband of insurrectionist Ginni “Release the Kraken” Thomas, announced in his opinion that the Court should target gays next.

The Supreme Court should revisit such historic decisions as the ones that established the right of gays to privacy in their own homes (Lawrence v. Texas, 2003) and the right to marry (Obergefell v. Hodges, 2015), he stated.

Those rulings “were demonstrably erroneous decisions,” he wrote.

That’s not some careless aside.

I dreamt of Robin, and when I awoke, I knew he was dead.

Robin was a man I knew for a season when I was 19.

We were never friends, though I would have been gladly that, and more, if he had given me the chance.

I hadn’t thought about him in at least twenty years, and here I was, googling him on my desktop first thing in the morning.

TFG is Having a Bad Month. Why That’s Great for the Country.

We’re in Year Two of Joe Biden’s presidency, but TFG (The Former Guy) can’t let that election go.

In a recent statement, TFG actually said the quiet, traitorous part aloud:

While repeating his lies about widespread voter fraud, he said that … ‘Mike Pence did have the right to change the outcome … Unfortunately, he didn’t exercise that power. He could have overturned the election!”

You don’t need to be Perry Mason to see this as a confession.

The insurrection never ended

As we mark the one-year anniversary of the assault on our nation’s Capitol, it’s important to note how much has changed – for the worse.

While law enforcement filed charges against over 700 members of the mob, the people who instigated, funded, and organized the insurrection to overturn the 2020 presidential election have not been held accountable.

The Department of Justice has been astonishingly mute. If the FBI is investigating, officials are saying nothing.
