Marty’s photo of the day #2092: Here’s a photo I took at a flying fox research facility in Australia. This is Annie, a black flying fox, hanging off of Deb’s back.

Kellyanne Conway is the flukiest of them all

Before Kellyanne Conway became Donald Trump’s bimbo counselor, she frequently appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher, as a Republican to add “balance” to the panel. Of all the guests on the show, she made me scream at the TV the most. I couldn’t believe that anyone could be so clueless about so many issues. […]
