The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | • The Broadway cast of Hamilton! lectured Mike Pence from onstage Friday about the need for the new administration to stand for diversity. It never ends. Next on Broadway is a musical about a brilliant actor's attempt to eliminate the Republican Party in its infancy. The show is called Booth!

• Mike Pence's appearance at Broadway's Hamilton! was risky since he holds strong anti-gay views. In the show, gay guys of all colors dress up like Founding Fathers and sing and dance for two hours. It's the only audience that boos when the lead character announces he's opposed to human bondage.

• The Oakland Raiders played the Houston Texans in Mexico City in Aztec Stadium on Monday Night Football, seven thousand feet above sea level in the world's most polluted air. The visiting American fans in the stands faced another challenge. The beer is watered down so you can't drink it.

• Jesse Jackson urged President Obama to pardon Hillary Clinton for any crimes she may have committed. Thus Hillary would end her political career with a presidential pardon after Bill's ended with an impeachment. The turkeys will retire and live out the remainder of their days on a farm.

• Iowa Governor Terry Branstad celebrated the Chicago Cubs World Series victory Monday by pardoning two turkeys named Bryant and Rizzo after the Cubs stars. Talk about ending a losing streak. The last time the Chicago Cubs won a World Series there was a pitcher's duel with flint-locks.

• Ernst and Young announced its Entrepreneur of the Year award winners in financial services, manufacturing, high tech, real estate, family business and energy. My favorite nominee is a guy from Los Angeles. He made his fortune with an innovative idea in Hollywood, renting wedding rings.

• Ohio Democratic Congressman Tim Ryan announced Monday he'll run against Nancy Pelosi for Minority Leader. He wants to jettison the leadership's elitist image and return to Democrats appealing to the working class. You'll never carry a majority of workers by over-tipping the wine stewards.

• The National Retail Federation predicted a huge turnout of holiday shoppers on Thanksgiving Day when the big box stores throw open their doors. There are real shopping bargains out there if you search for them. The Clinton Foundation is offering ninety-five percent off on all speaking fees.

• The New York Times publisher vowed they’ll start reporting the news straight without liberal bias. An optimist sees a glass as half-full, a pessimist sees the glass as half-empty. A journalist for the New York Times sees the glass as symptomatic of the institutional racism in American society.

• The Hamilton cast defiantly stood by its decision Friday to lecture Pence on multiculturalism from the stage. Nobody gets any respect. Hillary Clinton tried to go to see a performance of the musical Les Miserables, but the cast asked Hillary to leave because she was bringing the room down.

• NFL officials vowed to take measures to speed up games in order to retrieve the NFL’s lost TV viewers. They praised the fast pace of National Hockey League games as an example of what appeals to today’s sports viewer. The average hockey game lasts about two hours and thirty-five beers.

• The US. Geological Survey announced it’s located the largest shale oil supply in world history near Midland. Talk about an unfair recruiting advantage. The Texas Longhorns just unveiled a plan to build a luxury golf retirement community for playmakers whose college eligibility just expired.

• President Obama in Germany on Thursday praised Chancellor Angela Merkel as a valuable partner. They’ve had their rocky moments. Just two years ago, Angela Merkel ripped the United States for using the NSA to spy on her phone calls without giving the Gestapo a penny in royalty fees.

• President Obama arrived in Peru over the weekend after stops in Greece and Germany. He was there to explain the U.S. election to allies and trading partners. It’s a sentimental journey for the president in that this is the last time he’ll have the opportunity to apologize for the U.S. on foreign soil.
