The Weekend Desk Report

Due to a labor dispute, we've decided to cancel the news for another week or so.

Market Update
It turns out even if something is bigger than one person, one person can still pretty much bankrupt that thing.

Mouth Walsh
Actual U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh, who was actually elected to Congress in 2010, attempted to clarify his stance on women's health by issuing the logically opaque statement that "I am pro-life for the mother and I am pro-life for the unborn child. For me, there is no distinction between the two." Except, of course, when there is a very clear and obvious distinction between the two.

Brain Walshing
Of course, if Walsh is truly unable to distinguish between mothers and children, it might explain why he's such a shit to women and children alike.

Walsh and Ry
In other news, duh.

Kids These Days
Research indicates that boys, like girls, are hitting puberty earlier than ever. So does that explain why Joe Walsh sat like a fourth-grader who has to pee during a televised debate?
