OTP 2018 June 25: Charles Krauthammer’s Love Of Baseball Leaves A Lasting Legacy

In recent days, many of Charles’ admirers had honored his formidable body of work and conservative convictions. I’m here to pay respects to his love of baseball, which made him and the world a happier place.

“If you believe, as do I, that God created baseball as a relief from politics, I herewith offer, as a public service, a column about [Bryce] Harper & friends,” he wrote in an exquisite column for The Washington Post in 2016.

And this is no different than anything that's been said about the probe since May, 2017.


which was two guilty pleas and 15 other indictments ago...

There is only one way to drink bourbon.


Frequently, right?

Heflin was a man of his time and place. He believed in Mint Juleps when having a drink with the ladies and neat when it was just the men.

Perhaps you can convince them to walk off that cliff. I wouldn't mind seeing that.

Sounds like Theresa May's already wobbly government is on the verge of collapsing... good thing she's got a Trump visit - that should shore things right up!

Well, a winning lawsuit, perhaps.

Johnson exits, Trump enters. The UK will hardly notice the difference.

For that London demo next week they need to make up an inflatable Boris Johnson doll in Depends to go along with Trump in diapers. All they'd then need would be Putin in an iron jock strap to make it a perfect little love nest.

New York Post: Is Hillary Clinton secretly planning to run in 2020?


Literally every current and former Democratic governor and senator is interested in running in 2020 if they have any kind of a chance, and it's no secret. Well, I suppose not former Democratic governor Bill Clinton, nor former Democratic senator Barack Obama. But otherwise.

I'm waiting for someone to tell me why I shouldn't support this guy.

Because you shouldn't vote for a guy simply because he took some statues down?

But that's how they brought peace to the Middle East.
