Citing ongoing crises in the Middle East and Ukraine, as well as the continued fragility of the U.S. economy, President Obama today announced that he and his family would vacation for one week at Camp David next month, rather than more than two weeks at Martha’s Vineyard.

“After much reflection, I have concluded that I’m simply not comfortable with the message an extended vacation to a luxury resort sends at this time, nor do I consider it good stewardship of the people’s money,” President Obama said in a statement. “Camp David keeps me much closer to Washington if I am needed. The girls are excited about having some school friends over to spend the night and play games, and I’m sure we’ll all enjoy the quiet and relaxed time together. Maybe Michelle will even let us have a pizza night.”

Mr. Obama’s decision is receiving widespread bipartisan support.

You may have read of a kerfuffle involving a parade float that included an outhouse labeled Obama Presidential Library and a scared zombie.

Obama’s Justice Department has deemed this worthy of its attention.

This is absolutely outrageous.

Mr. President, this is the United States. You are a thin-skinned whiny cry-baby, and it’s undignified and embarrassing. Get over it, wimp.

(‘Course, we should have seen this coming when he put Maureen Dowd “on notice” for commenting on his ears.)

Well, it was an enjoyable Independence Day weekend until I destroyed my grill tonight with a grease fire that I estimate burned unattended for ten minutes. (Gee, I’ve never seen the little thermometer built into the lid read 925º before.) It wasn’t particularly expensive, but it worked well for what we wanted. There was nothing [...]

That’s about what you’d think, given the spittle-flecked outrage. Hobby Lobby is blocking access to nothing. Hobby Lobby employees have 16 contraceptive options in their health plans. Fact. Fact. Hobby Lobby does not want to be forced to pay for four drugs its owners consider abortifacients. That’s it. This should be a market decision in [...]
