A brothel of robotic sex dolls set to open shop in Texas this month hit a snag after local authorities, fueled by a field of concerned petitioners, found a building inspection gig and put a temporary stop to KinkySDollS' plans. There's a blessing in disguise. Sometimes regulation really does work for good, yes?

U.N. court's hilarious attempt to order U.S.

You had me at the headline."U.S. ordered to lift some Iran sanctions by International Court of Justice," blared NBC News, above its Associated Press story.

Jeff Flake's astonishing admission of no principles

- The Washington Times

Sen. Jeff Flake said in an interview on "60 Minutes" that if he were running for re-election, there'd be no way he would call for the FBI to investigate Judge Brett Kavanaugh. This is astonishing. What Flake is admitting, in essence, is that he is unprincipled.

Ted Cruz restaurant confrontation backfires

- The Washington Times

The uncalled-for and inappropriate verbal attack on Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife at a D.C. restaurant has backfired, it seems, and now the owners of the establishment say they're getting death threats. This is not a 'hey-ho, that's what the left gets' moment. Nobody deserves death threats. But it is a wake-up call to the Democrats.
