Friday Cat Blogging With Photoshop

From Album 5
In New Orleans. I can't make it to Rising Tide X, but have been very fortunate to attend most, and am very grateful to have met some of the people who've organized them. They've been more than just kind/friendly: they've made me realize just how amazing the city and its citizens are.

Amateur Artist To Visit City He Let Drown

From Album 5
Well, not when he turned to amateur art, but only when he was the leader of the free world. a way the whole sorry, tragic, horrible display of epic incompetence by allegedly qualified leadership foretold what we see today. I don't have the slightest doubt the Trump stalwarts keeping him at the top of the GOP polling slagheap are the same ones who took victim blaming to new heights ten years ago, even as they pin their hopes on an even worse charlatan than Dubya, if that can be imagined.

As for Shrub, well...interestingly, his sorry record up to and including his two terms as president sure are reflected in his equally lousy attempts at painting. Oh, and as an aside: while I'm pretty sure a Trump administration would almost --almost -- make Bush Junior look like a veritable Pericles, I can't think of any Veep worse than Dick Cheney. None...and that includes Aaron Burr, who only shot and killed Alexander Hamilton.

As Ye Sow, Etc., Etc.

From Album 5
I almost -- almost -- feel sorry for the yahoos and nut jobs taken in by The Donald, to the point where Frank Luntz admits his legs are shaking (and his head is probably exploding)...but...Luntz has no one to blame but so-called pundits like himself. And the yahoos and nut jobs falling for the cheapest of all sales patter (from a casino operator, i.e., a person who makes his living fleecing his customers) only earn my consideration, not my sympathy: they'll happily accept dog food and table scraps for little more than being allowed-if-not-encouraged to hate the other. Some harvest...

And They're Allegedly The Smart Ones

From Album 5
Oh sure, it's not the epic stupid of Trump, but for him, idiocy is a feature...Jeb and Scott, at least in theory, are supposed to be the grown ups. But what the hell, in this race, I can't think of a single Rethug who's not bugfuck insane.
