"How to Support Women in the Age of Trump"

Alternative blog post title: "What the Hell Are We Going To Do With a Batch of Whiskey Named After This Hapless Loser?"

Pia Carusone and Rachel Gardner, owners of the Republic Restoratives distillery, got the bright idea prior to the recent election to go with the smart money and come out with a whiskey label to honor the first woman president of the United States.

Hmmmm...m'yes...

That didn't work out quite as planned. So now, Carusone and Gardner, under the rubric of rallying, reviving and otherwise bucking up the flagging spirits of the proglodyte women's movement, are convening a coven sponsoring a fund-raiser for The Cause, which they hope will help them unload 4,652 bottles of coffin paint labeled "Rodham Rye".
Rodham Rye will launch on March 25 with a “community conversation” at the Ivy City distillery entitled “How to Support Women in the Age of Trump.” After a panel discussion, Republic Restoratives will lead tours and offer samples and cocktails, while female-owned vendors will provide food. Five percent of proceeds from the $79 bottles will go to EMILY’s List, an organization that helps pro-choice Democratic women running for office.
I toyed with the idea of buying a bottle, as a kind of curio, but I decline to put money in the hands of the pro-abortion crowd. Besides, at $79 a bottle, the investment would make a large whole in my monthly budget for Thunderbird.

Commenters are invited to create a winning slogan - Oops! Too late for that! - make that an amusing slogan to help these gals move that booze.

My entry: "Rodham Rye: One glass of this stuff and you won't care who won the election."

Super-big H/T to Mrs. Paco for spotting this story.

I'm really feeling like an underachiever

Chelsea Clinton wins a lifetime achievement award, and she's only 37.

Update: Veeshir, in the comments - "Well, she did achieve life. That's quite the accomplishment since it means somebody had to have sex with Hillary."

Chuck Berry

Rock & Roll legend Chuck Berry has died at age 90.

Here he is in a live performance of one of my favorite R&R tunes, Roll Over Beethoven.

Sunday funnies

Via that indefatigable Internet explorer, Captain Heinrichs - the assault trombone.




Finally! An exercise I can really get into (via Powerline's "The Week in Pictures"):



Truth plant.

The ten million dollar punctuation error.

As Winston Churchill said, "Nothing in life is so exhilarating as to be shot at without result."



Via friend and commenter Bruce, here's a video that subtly underscores the rivalry between Australia and New Zealand.
