Here's Hoping They Both Lose

By no means does this mean I've got any sympathy for JBS. Just the opposite: while he's busy salvaging what remains of any dignity he may have once had (emphasis on "may") it's hopefully keeping him from pursuing a genuinely ugly agenda.

But that said, what we're seeing isn't normal. It's a dumbing down and cheapening of some pretty important institutions, government as reality television, hissy fit as national entertainment...and policy. Which is all fine and good as long as something serious doesn't happen...but...if something does, all bets are off. When shit hits a fan, it's not pretty.

Enjoy Your Legacy Johnny Walnuts

Just my personal theory, but I'm guessing this is in the end all about losing to "that one" in 2008...

Don't Let The Door Hit You...

Bye, bye...

Have a good weekend.

No Use Trying

They're not exactly open to reason. Just have to outvote them...again...and hope we can also outvote them where it counts...

I don't think any further explanation is necessary.

Junior has all the tact of his old man...

Monday, July 10, 2017


Busy day, so no link, I'm sure you can find one or more...but it's becoming pretty obvious that our clown president is also in the money laundering business...

Friday, July 07, 2017


So, while Don and Vlad bromanced, Mike Pence demonstrated his critical thinking skills...or lack thereof, or maybe just super low literacy skills. Three and a half years to go, and counting the days, hours, minutes, and seconds...

Have a good weekend.

It's The Vlad and Drumpf Show

On tomorrow's schedule...

It's All In What You Put Into The Text

I'll bet they'd be ok with "he has prevented us from engaging in our time honored tradition and practice of hippie punching..."

Why Is This Man Smiling?

Because now he's got some real competition for worst president ever.

Have a nice holiday.

Mitch Doctor

Sorry to recycle a picture so soon, but McConnell gets today's's hoping his failure is more than temporary.

But Hey, Tax Cuts

Republicare: Sick? Pray...

Friday, June 23, 2017

So, Maybe He Erased Them...

No tapes after all...go figure.

Anyway, have a good weekend. Back to more or less normal on Monday...

Introducing McConnellcare

Some call it snake oil. Others think it's a shit sandwich.

Faith Based Voting

Yeah, the Georgia special election sucked a bit. It's never fun to lose...but remember, the true believers are...true believers...and maybe we can point out that their chosen one ... is a rank asshole. To be fair, some 15 percent did realize that...let's keep working on that, and, more important, keep working on getting our voters to the polls. We still outnumber them.

Rain Check

Out today...and possibly through the weekend. Thanks as always for anyone who stops by...will likely be back to regular posting on Monday.

Oh, and the guy who shot Scalise is an idiot. Not that I like Scalise, but out side can't be violent. We. Just. Can't

Kim Jong Ugh

Banana Republic might be giving them too much credit...

In Other News

Over there, it might not be a win for Labor, but it sure is a defeat for the Tories.

Wednesday, June 07, 2017


So, in the absence of unforeseen events, Goofus v. Gallant will be the center of attention for the chattering classes tomorrow. Too bad they both can't lose, but I'll have to hope the obvious lesser-of-evils keeps Orange Narcissus on the defensive...

Monday, June 05, 2017


Trump has time for posting plenty of obnoxious tweets, but can't be bothered to nominate a FEMA or NOAA administrator...and hurricane season began last Thursday...

Friday, June 02, 2017

He's No Claudius

And he's not even Little Boots. Little Fingers...

Have a good weekend.

Rolling Coal

I dunno, maybe a good day to be busy...missed the show, but read Pierce's article and guess I'll catch the lowlights on the news. Goddamn. Ignorance is one thing, assholery another. But combined with a menacing aggressiveness...sigh.

The Depths...

Not entirely appropriate for Memorial Day, but given how far down the hole we've gone...above is an actual Trump "coat of arms" stolen from the previous owner of his Mar-A-Lago resort...I'm thinking the tiny hand is life-sized. But...underscores the sick joke that is the nominal leader of the nation. Trash masquerading as class.

Back tomorrow.

They Went To Jared

Your Russian back channel.

Have a good weekend.

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.
