Given the intelligence of the typical Washington Pest reporter, this really shouldn't be a surprise:

When I came home from my last TV hit, the kids, ages 4 and 5 months, were asleep. The house was quiet. I was still full of caffeine and do-gooder energy and decided to tidy up.

Among the clutter on the coffee table, I found my 4-year-old’s Party Popper, a bright yellow gun that fired confetti. For some reason, I held the gun up to my eye and looked down the barrel, the way Yosemite Sam always does.

It looked unloaded.

Then, for some reason, I pulled the trigger.

When I got to the ER, I had a swollen face, metal-foil confetti in my hair and a faint odor of gun smoke. Finally, the doctor could see me.

“I shot myself in the eye with a glitter gun,” I said. I showed him the Party Popper, which I had brought with me, in case he wanted to send it off to the National Institute of Morons for further study.

I got home from the hospital with a scratched cornea and a tube of eye ointment. The next day, with some of my dignity permanently lost, I got started on a bigger story.

I'm getting to really like this guy Trump. Every time he opens his mouth, the progtards start waving their hankies and screaming, "Faaaaacist!!".

My way of looking at it is that if fascists are the price we have to pay to get rid of this plague of the Enlightened(tm), then it's a price worth paying. The fascists might leave you with a fucked up country, but at least you'll still have a country. These ass-clowns will happily hand it out from under your feet.

Adolf Hitler only fucked up Europe for a generation. Angela Merkel has set the stage for centuries of ethnic strife. I'd bet money that Europe will still be cursing Merkel long after Hitler is a forgotten man.

Unfortunately, almost all of the people who fought in WWII are gone now, or they'd tell you the most appropriate way to deal with Nazis: You blow their shit up until you get their attention, then you give them a choice of being good citizens

I wouldn't count on that.

Apparently the people who fought WWII aren't any more enthusiastic about having their countries handed out from underneath their feet than the alt-right are.

I think you're confusing "nation" with "state". You are not a member of the Cherokee nation, unless you are related by blood, regardless of the fact that you share a government and a territory with them. However, you and the Cherokee are both citizens of the United States. Two different things, although they frequently overlap.

No, Russia didn't.

The Kremlin has rejected the hacking accusations, while the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has previously said the DNC leaks were not linked to Russia. A second senior official cited by the Washington Post conceded that intelligence agencies did not have specific proof that the Kremlin was “directing” the hackers, who were said to be one step removed from the Russian government.
Craig Murray, the former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, who is a close associate of Assange, called the CIA claims “bullshit”, adding: “They are absolutely making it up.”
“I know who leaked them,” Murray said. “I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.
“If what the CIA are saying is true, and the CIA’s statement refers to people who are known to be linked to the Russian state, they would have arrested someone if it was someone inside the United States.
“America has not been shy about arresting whistleblowers and it’s not been shy about extraditing hackers. They plainly have no knowledge whatsoever.”
