For almost two years, I have submitted occasional opinion pieces to Ricochet. However, for over eight years, under what is obviously a pseudonym, I have blogged a fair amount of political satire. It is not satire that one would describe as light-hearted and jocular. Rather, it is satire that is Juvenalian in mood: a more apt description would be “spitting.”

Before I would post them, quite a few of my satires caused me substantial anxiety: would this be the piece that finally prompts some sort of retaliation? As ridiculous as that anxiety might sound to some, for me it was very real. However, despite that anxiety, I reasoned that “God hates a coward” and posted each one. As far as I know, no retaliation ever came. However, that is probably not because the Democrats are not shockingly petty, vindictive, and intolerant, but rather it is probably because my satires are either too obtuse or too stylistically out of the mainstream to garner anything more than a handful of readers.

Greg Gutfeld moved to retire the word “snowflake” this week on The Five, suggesting that some conservatives were themselves becoming snowflakes. I have succumbed to trolling on the left of so-called snowflake behavior on the right, mashing my keyboard in frustration of the equating of the snowflakery of the Left with what many were calling […]

For some reason, Kathy Griffin’s sad little news conference with Gloria Allred’s daughter got me thinking about Betty White. Betty White truly is beloved by people. Why? Longevity, is part of it, roles on two iconic sitcoms twenty years apart. But a big part of it is her demeanor. Betty White is sweet. People like that. […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss President Trump making good on his promise to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord and the liberal hysteria that followed. They’re also analyzing the very close run-off election between John Ossoff and Karen Handel in a normally red district in Georgia. And they express their disgust with Kathy Griffin as she plays the victim following the fierce bipartisan backlash in response to her photo stunt depicting her holding President Trump’s bloody head.

Nearly as soon as Donald Trump was elected, we started hearing cries from his defenders, every time the President and/or President Elect was criticized , screaming “what about when Obama…”. The term Whataboutism was coined, and many people (several whom I agree with usually) derided the term. More

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Kathy Griffin Wants Attention Again; Update: Griffin Apologizes

 
Photo Credit: TMZ.

D-list comic Kathy Griffin is transitioning to ISIS-inspired prop comedy. In a photo shoot, likely leaked to TMZ by Griffin herself, she is shown holding an effigy of President Donald Trump — in the form of his severed, bloody head.

Griffin’s attack on Trump is the latest in her desperate cries for attention. While hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve with Anderson Cooper, she regularly drops the F-bomb live and once groped and pretended to fellate her co-host. She televised a public pap smear before a cheering crowd and mocked Jesus during an Emmy acceptance speech. Griffin has been banned from “Ellen,” “The Tonight Show,” and “The View,” among others.
