Headlines Du Jour ► Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Not Now Silly is pleased to introduce a brand new rubric to Headlines Du Jour. The Asshole Du Jour will be awarded occasionally to that person who best exemplifies supreme assholishness. Our first winner is perennial asshole, Sister Sarah Palin, who used MLK Day to play the race card. And, that’s why, Sarah Palin, you are the very first to be given this prestigious award. You can pick up your statuette at the Not Now Silly offices during business hours. We don’t ship.
