Let's all celebrate and have a good time!

The latest issue of The Last Word marks 25 years for this fanzine of fun! Even as stale as the past month was, this edition comes through, as we discuss TV shows that say funny stuff, ridicule a certain 1980s band, and talk about other useful things.

So point your pooper here...

Conan O'Brien look-alike sighted

Today at Kroger, I saw a Conan O'Brien look-alike.

Bush's spiritual adviser indicted

Sometimes it's easy to forget how corrupt the George W. Bush regime was, but we had to suffer through 8 years of his incompetent dictatorship.

Kirbyjon Caldwell is a Houston megachurch pastor and spiritual adviser to Bush. Now Caldwell - along with Gregory Alan Smith, a Louisiana financial planner - has been indicted on 13 federal counts of conspiracy, wire fraud, and money laundering. The pair is accused of selling millions of dollars in worthless Chinese bonds to 29 vulnerable investors, many of them elderly.

The bonds were issued by the old Republic of China before the Communist Party's 1949 takeover and aren't recognized by the current Chinese government.

Caldwell is widely blamed for helping to create Bush's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives - which was of highly questionable constitutionality.

More celebrity look-alike funniness

You know it's a big day when you get an e-mail from someone saying they saw a Barack Obama look-alike.

Also, a man threatened to rip a bunker blast on a bus so he could be dropped off before everyone else.

Celebrity look-alikes still an international phenomenon

I still receive urgent e-mails informing me that people who strongly resemble American celebrities are sighted abroad.

I've just been informed that a Jerry Seinfeld look-alike was seen at an adventure park in Costa Rica. But someone else pointed him out first.

GOP nominates Holocaust denier for Congress

Can the country finally end its Republican protection agenda now?

The Republicans have just nominated a Holocaust denier and former American Nazi Party leader for a U.S. House seat in Illinois. Arthur Jones has officially clinched the GOP nomination in Illinois's 3rd District.

Jones is an avowed white supremacist who has protested the opening of a Holocaust museum. His campaign website has a section titled "Holocaust Racket."

You picked him, Repubs.

Austin bomber was right-wing activist

The city of Austin, Texas, has been on edge in recent weeks because of a series of bombings - which have killed 2 and injured at least 5 more.

Now the bomber has been identified as Mark Anthony Conditt, 23. The terrorist blew himself up in his car this morning as police tried to arrest him.

It turns out that Conditt was a right-wing activist and blogger. The self-described conservative made blog posts attacking gay marriage and other things.

When are authorities going to start dropping the hammer on far-right hate groups? I've been an eyewitness to their terrorism for 30 years, but nobody else has figured it out yet?

GOP official retires over porn scandal?

The Online Lunchpail wants to know if the rumor is true that the reason a local far-right Republican elected official isn't running again is that he was caught using government computers to download porn.

Another Kentucky GOPer accused of sexual harassment

The sexual harassment scandal that plagues the Republican Party of Kentucky grows.

State Rep. Jim Stewart III (R-Flat Lick) was accused of sexually harassing a legislative staffer back in 2015. The Legislative Research Commission has covered it up until now.

This came to light after Stewart denied knowing anything about such a complaint. The complaint accuses Stewart of making advances towards a staffer over an extended period of time. Stewart was also accused of calling her at all hours of the day.

Such is the current state of what has been America's ruling party for most of the past 40 years.

I'd like to say...We'll do OK...Forever in Kroger...

Today, after my dentist appointment, I saw a Neil Diamond look-alike at Kroger.

The funny thing is that I was just thinking about "Forever In Blue Jeans" last night!

GOP loses House election in Pennsylvania in upset

In one of the biggest electoral upsets against the Republicans since Donald Trump seized power, the Democrats picked up a U.S. House seat in Pennsylvania by 0.3% in a special election yesterday. This seat went vacant when Republican Rep. Tim Murphy resigned in disgrace. Of course, Murphy hadn't been truly elected to his last 2 terms, because - in Soviet fashion - he was unopposed.

On the other hand, the Democrat elected to that seat yesterday was described as a "moderate" in media reports - which means he's more conservative than at least 80% of people, with the exception of the malcontents who constantly post right-wing memes on Facebook.

When did Kentucky ban strikes?

With the possibility of a teachers' strike looming in Kentucky, several media sources have said that strikes are illegal in this state.

When did this happen? Evidently, this provision is included in the unconstitutional "right-to-work" law that passed last year. Why was this swept under the rug?

It should be a moot point, since the right to strike is of course constitutionally protected. The U.S. Constitution outweighs some Matt Bevin diktat any day.

So Trump said he wants to grab guns

Here's what Donald Trump said recently about confiscating guns from people: "I like taking the guns early. ... Go through due process second."

Imagine if you can what the reaction would be if Barack Obama had said that. But Trump said it, and the response has been total silence from the right-wing media.

There's a reason I said that even if an assault weapon ban was enacted, it would be hard to seize guns from law-abiding people who already have them. It's because we're supposed to have a system built on due process.

A federal court recently ruled that assault weapons are not protected as arms under the Second Amendment, because they are strictly instruments of war. Nowhere did the ruling say that due process didn't apply. The whole point of due process is that it applies. Due process wouldn't be due process if it didn't.

• Inspector 12 is gonna be mad!

• An idea for a brand new kind of bubble gum.

• Struggles with finding a turntable stylus.

So point your pooper here...

If that doesn't work, you can find it here...

Washington to become first state to restore 'Net neutrality

The state of Washington is poised to become the first state to restore 'Net neutrality since the scuzzo Trump regime unconstitutionally gutted it.

State lawmakers have approved a 'Net neutrality bill that would apply to all ISP's - not just those with a state contract. Gov. Jay Inslee - who has promised to continue to enforce 'Net neutrality despite Trump's idiotic babblings - is expected to sign the bill into law. The Washington House approved it 93 to 5, and the Senate approved it 35 to 14.

The state may face lawsuits by telcom monopolies, who cry that state law is preempted by the FCC. Wrong. The Tenth Amendment gives this power to the states.

If the FCC does try to enforce its will in Washington state, its agents should be arrested and detained.
