I find myself at TeaParty.org from time to time — I get a lot of mail from Steve Scalise worried that the Democrats will take back the House (and cost him his possible speakership), and from right-wing groups (unless they’re KGB sites — who knows?) like Prepared Patriots and The Daily Conspiracy with headlines like . . . “How To Use Bedsheets To Make Your Escape. Seriously.” . . . “The Deep State Revealed In The Bible: Nothing New Under The Sun” . . . “Ten-Year-Old German Muslim Violates Classmate” . . . “Bombshell Revelation from Egyptian Media: John McCain Was ‘Godfather’ of Muslim Brotherhood.”
Some of these have ads imbedded. My favorite, which appeared in a pro-gun Teaparty.org story: “Can This Free Brain Pill Instantly Double Your IQ?”
To which I found myself silently responding: “Yours, maybe.”

And if you have 3 minutes for the Rattlesnakes Bluegrass Band, you may enjoy this (not to offend anyone who thinks it’s okay Putin is someone Trump likes and admires).
