The Savior of the Republic

unlikely hero

Unlikeliest Hero of 2018

It is the evening of August 23, 2018, and this is what we have come to. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions the Third is at war with Donald Trump, pledging that “While I am attorney general, the actions of the Department of Justice will nt be improperly influenced by political considerations”—contrary to the wishes of some he could name.

Congratulations, General Sessions. We appreciate your service and are grateful that you are doing your best to save the republic.

Aardvark is honored to aware you the title of

Unlikeliest Hero of 2018.

That said, and without prejudice to the foregoing, Paul Waldman does have a point: “Were it not for his devotion to the cause of undermining civil rights, locking America’s doors to immigrants and punishing hippies for smoking grass, Sessions would have bolted a long time ago.”

And now a bonus.

Best Headline of 2018.

From Huffpost, earlier today:

“Trump Losing his Pecker”

Alas, the headline of the story has now been revised.
