WATCH: Senator Who Questioned Kavanaugh on Flatulence Given Perfect New Nickname By GOP Opponent

Published

on

For the last few weeks, we’ve been subject to the insufferable frustration that was the Democrats’ handling of accusations made against Brett Kavanaugh right before he was set to be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Stunningly, Congressional Republicans actually managed to turn it all around into an incredible victory, and this week, after a mind-numbingly awful and seemingly endless news cycle, we can at last enjoy the afterglow of how hard the Democrats just got owned.

For some GOP candidates, this means a considerable leg up in the upcoming midterms, or, in the case of one Rhode Island Republican, an awesome campaign ad.

Bob Flanders may not stand much of a chance against Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) in the deep-blue state of Rhode Island, but he took full advantage of Whitehouse’s given line of questioning during the Kavanaugh hearings to cut a hilarious new campaign ad with a brilliant new nickname.

Conservative Tribune reports:

Bob Flanders, the former Rhode Island supreme court justice who won the Sept. 12 Republican primary to challenge Whitehouse for the Senate in November, decided to use footage of Whitehouse on the Senate Judiciary Committee interviewing now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh about Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook — in particular the word “boofed.”

With a bit of harpsichord music playing over the dialogue, the distinguished gentleman from the nation’s smallest state is shown asking the hard-hitting questions at last month’s Kavanaugh hearings.

“Have you, I don’t know if it’s ‘buffed’ or ‘boofed,’ how do you pronounce that?” Whitehouse is shown asking.

That refers to flatulence,” Kavanaugh responded. “We were 16.”

“OK,” Whitehouse said.

“We want to talk about flatulence at age 16 on a yearbook page, um, I’m game,” Kavanaugh is shown saying later.

“With all the world watching, Senator Whitehouse asks about … flatulence,” the narrator of the advertisement, called “Gasbag,” intones.

“What an embarrassment for Rhode Island. Let’s elect a problem-solver, not a gasbag.”

Owned!

VIDEO: Cancer Survivor’s First Pitch Ended Up a Low Blow

While the catcher wasn’t able to snag the throw, a camera man just happened to be in the line of fire… in a most unfortunate way.

One of the most wince-inducing first pitches ever occurred at Fenway this week. It wasn’t wince-inducing because it was a bad pitch, per se. It was wince-inducing for where it ended up. Jordan Leandre was invited to throw out the first pitch during Wednesday’s Boston Red Sox-St. Louis Cardinals game at Fenway Park because he is a 17-year-old cancer survivor. Clearly he wasn’t invited for his baseball skills. The teen stepped up to the mound and wound up to let loose a bit of a wild throw toward home plate if not exactly AT home plate. The pitch went high and wide, high enough to fly out of reach for the catcher. But while the catcher wasn’t able to snag the throw, a camera man just happened to be in the line of fire… in a most unfortunate way. Leandre’s pitch nailed Lawrence Eagle photographer Tony Capobianco right in the worst place possible. This video is not to be missed: Wowie. Leandre’s face after the disastrous throw says it all.

MUST SEE: Westminster Bulldog’s Stubborn Agility Course Run Goes Viral

Sure, Rudy may not have won the race, but he provided us with something far better than a gold medal:  A goodhearted chuckle.

Sometimes, the motivation that we need comes not for our fellow man, but perhaps from man’s best friend. Dogs have long been apart of world culture, and certainly American culture.  From the working ranch dogs of the high plains, to the apartment-dwelling puffballs of Manhattan, Americans are absolutely smitten with their furry friends. Maybe it’s because dogs give us hope in the goodness that exists around us.  They are eternally grateful for even the simplest of gestures, and would do for you what you’ve done for them one-thousand times over had they the ability or the thumbs. Instead, they reward us with unconditional kindness…and maybe some life lessons along the way. Now, one Bulldog’s determined and unexpected agility course performance is reminding Americans that, if you put your mind to it, you can do anything. https://twitter.com/C_lassy23/status/1094994254018027527 Rudy became an overnight celebrity. Rudy the bulldog charmed the audience at the Westminster Kennel Club agility contest in New York City over the weekend after he was spotted flying over jumps and bounding through tunnels. The so-called “sourmug” canine had a final time of 51.63 at the agility contest, which ushers in the club’s annual dog show. Though Rudy’s time was a bit slower than Verb the Border Collie’s winning time of 32.05 seconds, according to NJ.com, the canine quickly went viral — finding an abundance of new fans and endless support on Twitter. Sure, Rudy may not have won the race, but he provided us with something far better than a gold medal:  A goodhearted chuckle.
