    (CNN)There was an exchange Sunday between CNN's Jake Tapper and Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski that should be required reading/watching for every Republican in elected office.Here it is (bolding is mine):Tapper: "It's a weird time, though, for partisan politics, right? And I dare say it's a little weirder for Republicans right now. ... It must be uncomfortable to be a non-rigidly partisan person during this period." Murkowski: "During this part -- period, yes."But it can be uncomfortable -- it can be uncomfortable when you say, I'm not going to align myself neatly with what the party is saying just because the party is saying. You've got to be comfortable enough in who you are and who you represent and why you're here.Read More"I mean, I'm not here to be the representative of the Republican Party. I'm here to be the representative for Alaskan people. And I take that charge very, very seriously. So, when there is a conflict, when the party is taking an approach or saying things that I think are just absolutely wrong, I think it's my responsibility, as...
    The U.S. Army is getting mercilessly mocked on Twitter for using a quote by pop singer Lana Del Rey as a means for recruitment. “We’re gonna lose a major war,” one user said. “Please God, don’t let China see this tweet,” said another. “‘Being brave means knowing that when you fail, you don’t fail forever.’ -Lana Del Rey,” the U.S. Army tweeted on Saturday, along with an image of a female soldier crawling under barbed wire, through the dirt.

    Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images The United States Army Twitter account apparently has a new recruitment strategy — sharing Lana Del Rey quotes. The official account of the U.S. army took to Twitter this weekend to share something for “#SoldierSaturday,” but their choice of inspirational quote was roundly mocked. “‘Being brave means knowing that when you fail, you don’t fail forever.’ -Lana Del Rey,” the account posted on Saturday alongside an image of a female soldier crawling through the mud. “Being brave means knowing that when you fail, you don’t fail forever.” -Lana Del Rey ???? by Markus Rauchenberger#SoldierSaturday pic.twitter.com/57Aa4TnT2R — U.S. Army (@USArmy) January 22, 2022 While Del Rey has a clear affinity for the American aesthetic, often sporting denim while singing about the American dream, Twitter users were quick to mock the choice of quote: Putin is fuckin terrified rn https://t.co/ulH089txtL — ⚡David Angelo⚡ (@MrDavidAngelo) January 24, 2022 The new slogan of the US Military is: “I am here if you need to talk.” https://t.co/zmwBkFkYpt — Chad Felix Greene ????????

    Indianapolis Colts defensive lineman DeForest Buckner had an amazing response to a question about Tom Brady playing at 44 years old. Tom Brady is defying the odds by playing football at a high level at 44 years old. There’s no question about that. DeForest Buckner was asked about the longevity of the Buccaneers quarterback and dropped an absolutely perfect line.DeForest Buckner had a perfect response to Tom Brady question“If I’m playing football at 44, it means I’m broke,” Buckner said. Deforest Buckner, asked about Brady playing at 44… "If Im playing football at 44, it means Im broke." — Stephen Holder (@HolderStephen) November 24, 2021 That joke wasn’t at Brady’s expense, for the record. He wasn’t suggesting Brady needs the money at this stage in his career. The Colts lineman was simply saying that playing football is hard and it would take severe financial pressures to keep him on the field for as long as Brady. It helps that Brady is a quarterback and probably doesn’t have to meet the physical demands that Buckner faces as a defensive tackle....
    New York (CNN Business)A version of this article first appeared in the "Reliable Sources" newsletter. You can sign up for free right here.While watching the news coverage of Steve Bannon's initial appearance in federal court on Monday, I kept thinking about his 2018 confession to the acclaimed writer Michael Lewis. His quote is like a compass that orients this crazy era of American politics. "The Democrats don't matter," Bannon told Lewis. "The real opposition is the media. And the way to deal with them is to flood the zone with shit."That's the Bannon business model: Flood the zone. Stink up the joint. As Jonathan Rauch once said, citing Bannon's infamous quote, "This is not about persuasion: This is about disorientation."So, with that in mind, here's what Bannon did: He streamed his arrival at an FBI field office, to turn himself in, on his GETTR account. He told his fans to "stay focused and stay on message" despite the "noise" of his indictment. He proclaimed that "we're taking down the Biden regime." He used the scene for all the publicity, and...
    LeBron James hinted where he would like to spend the remainder of his career, and it will hit Los Angeles Lakers fans right in the feels. LeBron James just concluded his 18th season in the NBA, his third with the Los Angeles Lakers. Despite their hopes of repeating as NBA champions, the Lakers were defeated by the Phoenix Suns in six games in the first round of the playoffs. James is 36 years old and is set to become a free agent in 2023. Naturally, that leaves some wondering where James will ultimately end his career. During an appearance on the “SmartLess Podcast,” James said that while he is under contract with the Lakers for the next two seasons, he would like to end his career wearing the team’s signature purple and gold uniform. LeBron says he wants to retire in the purple and gold. ???? pic.twitter.com/5rspTaHkg9 — theScore (@theScore) July 12, 2021 Lakers: LeBron James wants to end his career in Los AngelesThis is certainly welcome news for Lakers fans, as one of the greatest players in NBA history...
    Perhaps it is the phrase that defines Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope: « In my experience, luck does not exist. » It’s a simple statement of his faith in the power of the Force, presented in the face of Han Solo’s dismissive cynicism. Of course, Han took notice, and the phrase remained a staple of Obi-Wan’s character ever since. And yet it wasn’t Obi-Wan who said it first, at least not chronologically. Although the claim bears the stamp of a Jedi principle, the first being to say it chronologically on screen is Ki-Adi-Mundi, a Jedi from Cerea with a prominent place in Star Wars history. Mundi is certainly a legend among the Jedi of the time, earning a place on the Jedi Council as early as Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, when Obi-Wan was still a Padawan, and participating in numerous key events during the Wars. Clone. Why he said it and what it means to the Jedi is cause for speculation, but it helps inform not only Obi-Wan’s character, but the lore...

He is becoming a real star in New York City and fans are going to love to hear what he had to say about his future in town. Julius Randle said when he signed with the Knicks in 2019, his thinking was that he would be in New York long-term. Randle said today that his thinking hasn’t...

You heard Kevin McCarthy say -- I mean, do you agree with what Kevin McCarthy said there, that the President must take responsibility, that the facts demand that he take responsibility for what happened on January 6?Scalise: Well, first of all -- now, I wrote a Wall Street Journal editorial about where I think the responsibility lays for January 6. And surely, there's a lot of blame to go around.Read MoreBut at the end of the day, the people who stormed the Capitol on January 6, it was a disgrace. And they need to be held accountable. And in fact, over 180 have already been arrested. And I know the FBI's working...

    Ben Mason puts Michigan football ahead of himself as a great leader and teammate.Players like Ben Mason are why Michigan football could have itself a great 2020 season. The senior fullback is tasked with mostly blocking for his teammates like quarterback Joe Milton and running back Zach Charbonnet to have success. Even though he scored an incredible eight-yard touchdown in Michigan’s season-opening win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers, his quote before the game tells you everything you need to know about his character as a man. Jim Harbaugh says FB Ben Mason addressed the team before Joe Miltons first start. The message: "Joe, this is your night. Were going to block, we’re going to catch, we’re going to do everything in our power to make you successful." — Austin Meek (@byAustinMeek) October 26, 2020 By not making it about himself, Ben Mason was rewarded for his sacrificeBy telling Milton Saturday night was about doing whatever it took for him to have success, it gave the new Michigan starting quarterback all the confidence in the world to go out and blow...
    Michigan kidnap plot: Group also discussed targeting Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, FBI agent says This Grocery Store Chain is Bouncing Back After Declaring Bankruptcy This Mike Tomlin quote is so bad, and makes so little sense that it’s art The Browns and Steelers face off in Week 6 in a game that’s going to be way more competitive than anyone anticipated before the start of the season. Both teams are 3-1, the AFC North is arguably the toughest division in football, and Mike Tomlin summed it up with one of the most beautifully nonsensical football quotes of all time. © Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images As only #Steelers coach Mike Tomlin can, he expresses excitement for the #Browns matchup this Sunday: "We love being in the kitchen. And AFC North ball is in the kitchen. It's hot in the North."— Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) October 13, 2020 Football coaches say a lot of dumb stuff, but this is right up there with the best nonsensical phrases.

    Meghan Markle has been criticized on social media over her decision to continue using her royal title after insisting that all people should be 'linked not ranked' during an interview with feminist icon Gloria Steinem.  The 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex spoke about her love of the feminist phrase - and revealed during the 'backyard chat' with Gloria, 86, that she even wears it with her on a bracelet that was given to her by the activist.   However some Twitter users were quick to accuse Meghan of hypocrisy, questioning how she can promote the concept of equality in an interview during which she chose to use her royal title.   Backlash: Meghan Markle has been mocked after saying in a Q&A with Gloria Steinem that it 'means everything to her' that people be 'linked not ranked' despite still using her Duchess title
    I vividly remember Donald Trump’s campaign kickoff speech at Trump Tower on June 16, 2015 — a day which will live in imbecility. I recall that Trump seemed congenitally incapable of telling the truth, rode an escalator as part of what appeared to be some sort of shambolic, improptu comedy bit, and, of course, claimed Mexico was full of a smattering of “good people” and a presumably much larger smattering of vicious rapists and drug mules: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” The speech was so fatuous, offensive, and dishonest, of course he beat all Republican comers on his way to more or less permanently befouling the White House. God looked down on me enjoying my IPA and Field Roast vegan sausages atop my sunlit backyard deck and thought, “Let’s fuck with that guy’s life for a while, shall we?” Apart...
