With UN Abstention Obama Bids Israel an ‘Unhappy Hanukkah’

America's "Wreck it Ralph" is at it again. This time, President Obama decided to give Israel one last (we can only pray) kick in the behind before he leaves office. On December 23, the U.N. Security Council brought a resolution to a vote declaring that settlements Israel had built on and occupied since 1967 have "no legal validity."

Precap of News Certain to Occur in 2017

Thanks to Donald Trump and the Chicago Cubs my outlandish predictions for 2016 were eclipsed by, of all things, reality. Worse, the fine art of fake news was commandeered by demons who used it for social and political gain--something my colleagues and I would never have dreamed possible.

Republicans are the Masters of Not Getting Over Things

And now a few choice words for all Republicans advising Democrats to "stop whining about the election and get over it." Oh, really.
