Now normally, this wouldn’t cause for much of a concern.
Just another set of pasty butt cheeks prancing around the outfield before inevitably getting bodyslammed by stadium security.
But the photo that AP photojournalist Jeff Roberson managed to snag of the streaker at last night’s Phillies-Cardinals tilt is permanently etched into our memories, and that’s a good thing.
He captured the free American spirit at its finest, complete with a tattoo sprawled across the man’s ribcage that, of course, read “Hakuna Matata”.
America needed this to happen.
Baseball, strangely, needed this to happen.
And with that, a good start to Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial kick off point to the rest of this interesting and entertaining season.
They questioned the streaker and they asked him why he did it. He said he lost a bet to a friend. 22 year old landscaper. @Cardinals

The reported attacks by Islamists on Christian churches, Christian institutions and Christians in Egypt has spread. Here are some of the latest pictures to be tweeted from Egypt:
Those under attack include nuns, and reportedly a taxi driver was killed whose only crime was having a Christian cross on the dashboard:
From the Associated Press:
Two Christians have been killed since Wednesday, including a taxi driver who strayed into a protest by Morsi supporters in Alexandria and another man who was shot to death by Islamists in the southern province of Sohag, according to security officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to release the information.
The attacks served as a reminder that Islamists, while on the defensive in Cairo, maintain influence and the ability to stage violence in provincial strongholds with a large minority of Christians.
Nuns have also been targeted:
The three nuns were reportedly led to safety by a Muslim woman.
Twitchy will monitor this story and keep you updated on the latest developments.
The investigation into the shooting of an 18-year-old black male by an off-duty police officer that sparked protest last night hasn’t been completed, but Sally Kohn wants to know why “smaller government” conservatives aren’t already more skeptical of the police account of this shooting and others:
Don’t understand how conservatives otherwise so skeptical of govt suddenly TRUST govt when it comes to police accounts of killing black kids
— Sally Kohn (@sallykohn) October 9, 2014
Conversely, given her skepticism, why does Kohn’s political allegiance remain with the side that wants the government to be even bigger and more powerful than it already is?
@sallykohn or why liberals who say Gov is the best and savior of mankind, view police (Government enforcer) as evil and hate them.Weird

Don't understand how liberals, otherwise so supportive of govt, are suddenly so skeptical of it when it comes to police accounts @sallykohn
— Peter G (@Cyberquill) October 9, 2014
@sallykohn Wrong! Conservatives believe in letting police & courts determine guilt or innocence, not loot, try in media before facts are in.

Sarah Palin is using Facebook as a platform to draw attention to what Allahpundit calls a “portrait of a bureaucratic nightmare.”
A little girl’s dying from cystic fibrosis and has three to five weeks to live unless she gets a lung transplant before then. The good news is that adult lungs can be modified for a child her age in a way that’ll save her life — except that, because she’s only 10, she’s not eligible for them. The “adult” list starts at 12; everyone younger than that goes to the children’s list, where lungs are much harder to come by. The question is, does Sebelius have the authority to suspend those age limitations and make the girl, Sarah Murnaghan, eligible for an adult transplant?
I honestly don’t know the answer. Murnaghan’s parents say Sebelius’s authority is clear; Sebelius herself claims that HHS’s lawyers have told her she can’t do it. A life hangs in the balance.
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says all she can do is order a review of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network’s policy. Republican lawmakers contend that Sebelius has “the ability and the authority to intervene.”
In her full Facebook post, Palin slammed the administration for targeting journalists and patriots while refusing to “bend the rules” to ensure 10-year-old Sarah a shot at life.
The government will bend the rules left and right to harass targeted taxpayers, conservative patriots, selected journalists, etc., but it will strictly exercise inconsistent and subjective rules to deny a child a shot at life. And they called us liars when we spoke of “death panels” – faceless bureaucrats coming between you and your doctor to make life and death decisions about a loved one’s survival. It doesn’t sound so far fetched anymore, does it?
The AP reports that “Sarah’s transplant doctors say she is medically eligible for an adult lung.” It’s the bureaucratic tangle snaring Sarah Murnaghan and her family.
As Ace writes, this “demonstrates why who lives and who dies should not be part of the political process.”
As always, clinging bitterly to hatred for Sarah Palin is more important than just about anything … including the life of a young girl.
Meanwhile, the sane are praying.
