Geez, This Season Of The Americans Has Really Gone Downhill



I mean, is it realistic to expect a foreign government/criminal syndicate to go all in on an outwardly right wing populist who's actually their Manchurian pawn (albeit one who might well be laundering money for them) ... and then with a combination of weird election rules, a crappy press corps magnifying alleged flaws of his opponent (that and epically bad timing for a damaging press release from a clueless FBI director) ... the Manchurian pawn manages to get elected?

Nah...could never happen...

Staying With Yesterday's Theme



Because, good lord, there was an earthquake, the third major hurricane of the season, wildfires are still burning out west, racial tension (down here significant evidence it led to multiple murders) ... and Emperor Little Fingers can't get his country names right.

Wonder where the "Trump Katrina" stories are? Oh, wait, that's right: we don't try to play politics with every tragedy.

Nero Fiddled...



But Trump preened. Actually, Nero didn't fiddle, nor did he sing while playing the lyre...and this is not to imply that Trump is responsible for natural disasters (though he may well have served as some inspiration for the horrible murders right here in my sleepy town)...but...in a world subject to disasters, natural or not, having this clown in office is scary, even if (as we all know) he's only being allowed to play at being president...heaven help us if he actually tries to become one.

Deja Vu All Over Again



Or time to make the donuts. Because on the other side of the aisle they're serving up yet another shit sandwich, this one courtesy of Bill Cassidy (from right here in the Gret Stet) and Lindsay Graham.

They just won't quit.

And millions are crazy enough to agree. Not most, but enough to make for yet another showdown...Christ.

Friday



No Photoshopping today -- busy here -- but came across this. Worth noting.

Have a good weekend.

Not Always Gloom and Doom Here



Martin Shkreli had his bail revoked, because he couldn't not-behave-like-an-asshole even after being convicted. Sad to say, though, he's enough of a nut to possibly think jail will give him some kind of street cred. And I'm also guessing he's being kept isolated for his own safety...
