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



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.”

MUST SEE: Enormous Gorillas Turn into Scaredy Cats in Hilarious Viral Video

The hilarious clip is something that almost all of us can relate to.




When it comes to the animal kingdom, there are few beasts more frightening than those in the gorilla family. Their sheer strength is conveyed by their hulking and brutally-muscled bodies, which are capable of producing power at a rate nine times that of man.  Scientists have indicated that a Silverback Gorilla may be capable of lifting up to 1.800 pounds of dead weight. That’s nearly the curb weight of a ultra-compact car. Knowing what we know about these creatures, it stands to reason that almost nothing in the natural world would disturb or deter them…. ….except for maybe a little rain. These gorillas from a zoo in South Carolina have met their match in rain shower, in the above clip which has gone viral this week. The prancing primates were all the rage on Twitter as well. Some have pointed out, however, that wild gorilla will enjoy a good rain from time to time, leading some to believe that these apes may just be a bit spoiled.

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.
