Politicians Behaving Like Dicks

Would be less asinine if they were at each other's throats, but I guess Gianforte and Trump are like all bullies...

Credit Where It's Due

This is an excellent way to think about/consider the recently removed (though not destroyed) Confederate/White Supremacist statues in New Orleans. Thanks, Mayor Landrieu.

Sure, he's been a toady/water carrier for the GOP since forever, but good lord.

Have a good weekend.

The Passion Of The Donald

Nobody suffers like Trump...but still...classy...tremendous.

POTUS The Clown

And his puppet master Putin.

A recycled a little under the weather, hope to feel better tomorrow...though four more years?

Note: no links today, but you can easily find them...they're the headlines. And a damning indictment of Trump and his minions, who went apeshit over alleged mishandling of classified material by you know who...

Troll Trolls Himself

Pathetic...and I say that as someone who thinks far too much material is marked classified (and often used as a cudgel, e.g., Hillary's emails)...but this is just...sad.

If he's going to act like a baby, treat him like one.

Have a good weekend.

Or Not To Have A Brain At All

Am skipping any links again today -- you can find them. The Lester Holt and Economist interviews...damn, I guess they really did think Bush Junior was too sophisticated.

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Nixonian, Sure...

But there's also just something cheap...banana republic, or Republican about everything Trump does or I've said before, Trump is the repetition of history as farce.

Like a Pro Wrestling Version of Watergate

Won't even bother with links to articles, I'm sure anyone stopping by can find them, but there's the 18 day gap, Comey at long last gets fired (deservedly so, but still makes you wonder where the investigation to Trump's Russia ties was leading)...This is pathetic, like a funeral dirge played by kazoos.

Your Name Might Be John Kennedy...

But you're no Jack Kennedy. You're not even Tom Kennedy. But...Dan Quayle? Maybe...yeah, maybe...

Not Optional

Like Faux Noise? No? Too goddamned bad.

Have a good weekend.

Ever Get The Feeling You've Been Cheated?

The true believers will stick with him to the end ... assuming they don't die or go bankrupt from medical emergencies.

Face It, Ya Lost!

It's time the Confederate participation trophies were removed from the public sphere...

Comparisons To Andrew Jackson Are Not Compliments

But Trump isn't even reaching that low bar.

Friday, April 28, 2017

And Counting

100 days...can't wait until it's over...

Have a good weekend.

Time for yet another episode of The Walking Dead as economic policy, aka tax cuts pay for themselves.

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

The AP Interview

I swear, reading it makes you think Trump was a straitjacketed patient in a psych ward...

Monday, April 24, 2017

Sure, They Took It Down Eventually, But...

Imagine the sort of howling if anything like this had been done by Clinton. It's also just cheap/low rent/penny ante.

Friday, April 21, 2017

There, Fixed It

Now all that's needed is some meth manufacturing equipment...or as Todd might say, gear.

Have a good weekend.

Bye, Bye Billo

Don't let the falafel hit you on the way out...

Wednesday, April 19, 2017


So, based on readings this week, our president is either the second coming of Warren Harding or (if it's possible) a dimmer version of Sarah Palin, i.e., same word salad, but duller.

I'm guessing it's probably a bit of both...of course, what's scary is that's the best scenario until 2021...a dullard in over his head. If a real crisis hits -- or if he decides he wants to out-Bush George W...oh, shit.

Nobody Knew Geography Could Be So Complicated

I mean, Christ, you've got ordinal directions, cardinal directions...North Korea,  Australia...of course, the diehards love this stuff...but anyone with half a brain or more should be counting the days down and hoping like hell an actual crisis doesn't arise.

What's Wrong With This Picture?

The answer of course is that Geraldo Rivera is a weasel...a classic armchair general if there ever was one.

Friday, April 14, 2017

Good Friday

It'll be a Better Friday when the boy king resigns or gets fired...or, hell, in the age of Nielsen, cancelled.

Have a good weekend.

Reagan, Trump, Part II

Wrapped In The Flag And Carrying The Cross

Interesting on how the day Gorsuch gets sworn in (ironic in itself) we've got United Air Lines and the Lake County Florida Sheriff's Office both doing their level best to bring on fascism...what a country.

Just This Once

I won't call Mitch a turtle. Instead, I'll use a German word...

Have a good weekend.

Think About It...

Minimal Photoshopping. Twitter tweets are real.

Nuclear Option 2

Again, good riddance. The filibuster as traditionally used is dead anyway...

Tuesday, April 04, 2017

Monday, April 03, 2017

Duck and Cover

Mitch makes like he'll be going nuclear...if he's bluffing, good. If he's not bluffing...good. Time for the filibuster (NOT in the constitution) to go away generally, and there will now be precedent to just get rid of it.

In Like Flynn

Have a good weekend. Am feeling a bit better here at last. Hope my own weekend finds me finally shaking this damned cold off.

Thursday, March 30, 2017


Was a little better yesterday, but today my cold came back with a rage. I think I've finally rounded the bend, but need more rest. Thanks.

Wednesday, March 29, 2017


I remember laughing out loud at Phil Ruffin when he addressed a Trump rally in early 2016...turns out Ruffin's probably the most legitimate business partner Trump's got...

Sick Day II

Improving, but still feel like I was hit hard by something. One more day of rest.

Back tomorrow. Thanks.

Monday, March 27, 2017

Sick Day

Something got me good. Am feeling just terrible. Back tomorrow, I hope.

Friday, March 24, 2017

Loser was interesting.

Have a good weekend.

Thursday, March 23, 2017


Sad trombone for Ryan...can't even hold a vote. L is for loser.

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

So, Ready For Some Trumpcare?

We'll see what happens with the first vote tomorrow...

His Inner Dick

I heard John Dean saying this on the Chris Hayes show the other day as well: they sure are acting like they're guilty of something.

Long week, am kind of tired. Taking today off and posting something I came across several days ago.

Have a good weekend.

Original German, Part II

It's not just's everywhere. And stopping it isn't all that easy. Damn.

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

...In The Original German

Steve King tells us what he really thinks...and it's much the same as what David Duke does.
