hahaha this is too good. Thanks to Morgan for sending from craigslist: Two Libertarian Couches of Vague Historic Significance – $500
I am selling two sectional couches of vague historical significance.
They are located on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.
These couches were previously owned by libertarian icon and presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul. They sat in his home living room during his time in Congress. (more…)
Well, this is something. Captured by L.A. Kauffman around 8am outside Mitch McConnell’s house:
“What do we do with a drunken justice?” Protesters stage Kavanaugh confirmation kegger outside Mitch McConnell’s home in advance of cloture vote #StopKavanaugh #CANCELKAVANAUGH”

There are people drinking PBR from red Solo cups outside Mitch McConnell’s house at this early hour. They are chanting “I like beer.”

Shot in the dark for the owners of this lost pet:
So I was enjoying a late brunch on the patio of Napoli Pasta Bar Sunday afternoon (great brunch, by the way), lazily watching the Sherman Avenue traffic roll past in the wilting heat, when a black truck turning left on Girard Street catches my eye — and I’ll be damned if there isn’t a long, white ferret dangling out the passenger-side window. The passenger, it seemed, was stone asleep, and the driver apparently unaware of the critter trying to make its escape. The truck makes its turn, disappears up the street, and the next thing I see is a white furry face peeking out from behind the wheel of a parked car — the little guy made his escape. (more…)
hahaha thanks to Erin for sending.
For the backstory.
1020 19th Street, NW
Thanks, I think, to Neal for sending:
“Saw this scene the other day when Macron was arriving in DC. Please note the majestic pigeon soaring high above.”
If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send in an email where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.
Thanks to Julie for sending from Logan:
“At 15th and R Streets in a tree box, a sign newly nailed to a tree:
My Garden I fret
Is at times beset
With waste foul and wet
Please curb your pet
A rejoinder on cardboard:
This tree box you claim as “your garden”
Is public right of way
So I do beg your pardon
The pups shall poop where they may.”

hahaha thanks to Rachel for sending this gem from Craigslist
“Seeking a lead attorney to represent client involved in an ongoing Federal investigation. Must be familiar with laws and procedures around discovery, executive privilege, international financing of licensed real estate, election law and the Logan Act. Working knowledge of social media, especially Twitter is a plus, as is a better than average knowledge of the adult film industry and a collection of Playboy magazines from 1985-2010. Must look the part – Gregory Peck or Tommy Lee Jones type. Prior appearances on Fox News a huge plus.
No fatties. (more…)

From CBS News:
“The 60 Minutes interview with Stormy Daniels, the adult-film star and director who says she had an affair with Donald Trump, will be broadcast on Sunday, March 25 at 7 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
Daniels talks to Anderson Cooper about the relationship she says she had with Mr. Trump in 2006 and 2007, revealing details that bring her story up to the present. It is the first and only television interview in which she speaks about the alleged relationship.”
