The WeekholeView: The First 2014 Follies

Here, each hole starts on Wednesdays and this is what fell through this past week, in more than one way or day:

On Wednesday, January 1, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor blocked the implementation of portions of the Affordable Care Act which would have forced employers to provide employees condoms and other birth control measures. The justice acted on a request from the Catholic Flying Nuns Order and she explained her decision:

Neither they nor I have ever needed condoms so why should anybody else need them.

TPV applauded this New Yorker’s spirit of tolerating other sexually inclined women.

On Thursday, January 2, former Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates fell at his lakefront home in Washington State so he could wear a neck brace and get his fans to commiserate with his previous duties as secretary of war. Gates was preparing for an upcoming book tour for his forthcoming memoir, “Hard Duty under Bush but Harder under Obama,” out Jan. 14.

Friday, January 3, President Obama came out in support of gay marriage, as if it meant anything.

On Saturday, January 4, somewhere in his cold country, the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un took a solemn ski lift ride and allowed a photographer record his courage before having the man executed and his camera destroyed.[youtube id= Ci35WJq8zPQ width= 470 height=315]

On Sunday, January 5, informed about the white dalliance of her North Korean counterpart, German Chancellor Angela Merkel went skiing to the German province of Switzerland but fractured her pelvis while trying on the right pair of skis.

On Monday, January 6, Liz Cheney decided to drop her bid for the United States Senate in an uncharacteristic Cheney gesture: Liz kissed her GOP fellow Mike Enzi (whose seat she intended to take with a little help from dad and his friends) and hissed:

Until next time sucker!

On Tuesday, January 7, 2014, Jimmy Fallon came out of Lorne Michaels’ closet and Annie Leibovitz took notice (see picture above until Vanity Fair tells us to take it down).

  1. Killing the competition on every visual front – from kerning to content! Also funnier

  2. Sadly the video didn’t look safe for work, but maybe someone will let me use the computer at home (if VF allows you to keep the link).

  3. I bet this post will be frowned upon because of you calling Captain Phillips terrible. But, personally, I agree.
