Names in the news: Jhadi John is dead. Daffy Donald and Bonkers Ben are very much alive.

The Republican establishment is trying to figure out how to take out Daffy and Bonkers.

This is difficult because Iowa and New Hampshire are drone-free zones.

Voters must decide whether Daffy and Bonkers should be allowed to possess sharp objects, let alone the nuclear codes.
I can't wait to get the new iPhone 6s. It has all the bells and whistles including a catheter.

Internet traffic is much too slow. The other day at the CIA, they had to wait four hours before being hacked.

The prize for the most original Halloween costume goes to the guy wearing bathing trunks, going trick-or-treat as Bruce Jenner.

Ben Carson had a busy week. Quick -- can you name the last election when a candidate changed the name of the person he stabbed?

Let us not rule out the chance that Dr. Carson has been putting us on.
Jeb Bush reminds me of Mitt Romney. They bring to mind the old rule in politics: Never nominate a man who reminds women of their ex-husbands.

Republicans: "Hillary is a congenital liar."
Democrats: "No, she's a congenial lawyer."

The benevolent Peoples Republic of China has granted permission for its citizens to have two children instead of just one. Do the people of China still need a conjugal permit from the government?

Couples can frame the permit and hang it over the bed. A Chinese turn-on.
The Benghazi hearings will continue in sync with the alignment of the planets or until Jupiter collides with Congressman Trey Gowdy.

The Benghazi hearings will continue until the polka replaces hip hop.

The Benghazi hearings will continue until President Lincoln Chafee puts an end to them.

The Benghazi hearings will continue until the committee learns beyond a shadow of doubt whether Hillary had blue cheese or ranch dressing at lunch on the afternoon of September 11, 2012.

Joe Biden won't run, as Hillary confirms her belief in the power of prayer.

Bernie Sanders thanks Fruit of the Loom for its support.

In our war against cyber crime, we may bring back selective service and draft an army of computer whizzes out of middle school.

Here's your headline from the Democratic debate: Lincoln Chafee clobbers Jim Webb and moves up to a single digit.

Chafee says that he never had a scandal. Which could be baggage in today's political climate.

During the debate, Hillary suddenly became likable which I suppose qualifies as a flip-flop.

Bernie Sanders defines himself as a Democratic-Socialist. What does he mean? It means that Bernie will definitely carry Denmark.

Joe Biden would have been a lot tougher on Hillary than those other guys. That's because Joe is the only one who doesn't want to be vice president.

The debate in Vegas actually set a record: a two hour Kumbaya moment.

Congressman Kevin McCarthy will not run for Speaker of the House because of a slight conflict: He is the idiot who let the Benghazi cat out of the bag.

 The pope arrived in Washington and captivated the city.
To Congress he proposed the Golden Rule
Which they bottled up in committee.

As Francis spoke, John Boehner wept
So moving, you had to love it.
The next day, Boehner still inspired
Said, "take this job and shove it".

By the end of October he'll fade away

Boehner's on his way out as the tea party says,
"Cancel the crucifixion."

Referring to the middle class, Donald Trump said, ‘“I’ve met them all and believe me — some of them are really great people.”
