Making America Great Again



Community service -- or worse -- will have to wait for a few months.

I See A Future...



...without the Weekly Standard. To be fair, Kristol remains a Never Trumper, but that's about as low a bar as it gets.

In the meantime, a reminder of what we're losing. Short version: not much.

Spin



In another era, they called it the memory hole.

Have a good weekend.

Seriously?



Wow, just...wow. Clown show doesn't begin to describe.

Maybe He Finally Took His Meds



Or maybe he spent the day in a snit. Whatever, Trump's taking more and more Executive Time, which is, what the hell, a good thing, as far as I know. Less time to go fucking stuff up.

Dancing With The Donald



To be sure, anyone with even the slightest bit of sense could see that Trump was, as usual, a bloviating ass. But who says his minions have even the slightest bit of sense?

Just have to keep outvoting them...

Toxic Waste



Very few have been more detrimental to modern politics than Newt Gingrich.

The World's Youngest Curmudgeon



And then he cleared his throat loudly and complained that it's just so hard to get good help these days...

Someone should tell -- and then explain -- the Aristocrats joke to Douthat.

Donnie Short Fingers



Combine the worst qualities of the Corleone sons...or just think Fredo on steroids.

Walls Closing In Much?




Maybe not, but today's reaction is a tell: Trump's spinning like a meth addict watching a NASCAR race from the infield. He's guilty of something...

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

End Game?



Probably not quite yet, but the more you can make Trump sweat, the less he's able to FUBAR stuff...so let's hope they keep him sweating.

Have A Good Weekend

Obviously am taking a holiday vacation. The extra rest days are nice.

Thanks as always if you stop by to take a look at my small contribution. Most appreciated.

Back on Monday.

Something To Be Thankful For



The House Intelligence Committee, soon to be in Democratic hands, is looking to hire money laundering and forensic accounting experts...

Time To Pull This Out Again



What's it been? A week, two weeks? Hardly registers anymore in the headlines...

Trump Prepares His Answers For Mueller



Have a good weekend.

Thursday, November 15, 2018

Meanwhile



The Mitch Doctor has the perfect patent cure for divided government...fucking hack.

Another Day...



OK, as lies go, it's pretty low on the list -- though less so when combined with the deranged idea that people are running to the cars to change clothes and otherwise disguise themselves so they can cast multiple votes. But the problem IS that it's brushed aside as "just another Trump moment." No. He lies compulsively, about things large and small. He's a liar.

And that's not good.

The Art Of Being Dealt



He's getting his ass handed to him by Kim Jong Un. Think about that. And no, his rabid base won't...think, that is. About anything.

Monday, November 12, 2018

Monday



Back tomorrow.

OK, Let's Count The Votes



I'm awake over here, but more than a bit under the weather, so forgive the recycled photo. Gonna watch or otherwise check returns before another early turn in over here.

Go Blue.

Just Cancel The Show Already



It's alternately bigoted, vile, appalling -- and stale -- so tomorrow cast a no vote.

Alas, I'm not optimistic about the replacement (my inner pessimist says Nikki Haley), but it has to start with a first step...

Friday, November 02, 2018

Do We Want More Of This?



Send a message next Tuesday...

Have a good weekend.

Trump Calls For Calm, Reasoned Debate...



Hah. Nah, just kidding...and of course I'm kidding. You think he'd do that? Not a goddamned chance. Instead...Willie Horton version 2.0...

Boo



I can't think of anything scarier...than the fact that Donald J. Trump is president of the United States.

Happy Halloween.

Tuesday, October 30, 2018

Goofus



No, Trump can't sign away the 14th Amendment. This is strictly red meat/a bloody flag to wave before his adoring minions.

But Trump CAN be a total asshole, and he's doing quite the job at that. A big old rejected stamp on election day would be a good first step...

Monday, October 29, 2018

Executive Time



Kind of glad to read/see this. It would be far more frightening if he actually did anything.

Making America Great Again



Can you feel the greatness yet?

Have a good weekend.

Thursday, October 25, 2018

Gee, Who Would Have Guessed?



That a guy like this might make for a certain...inspiration...

Who They Are



Give these fuckers a chance to demonstrate even the most basic measure of humanity and...nope.

Tuesday, October 23, 2018

The Nationalist



The lies aren't the point. The lying is.
It’s not just that both Putin and Trump lie, it is that they lie in the same way and for the same purpose: blatantly, to assert power over truth itself.
Yep.

I've Got A Nickname For Him



Toady Ted.

Busy day, will do something more significant tomorrow...

Friday, October 19, 2018

It's Happening



Sure, it's not Germany or Italy of the 1920s and 30s, but in his particular stubby fingered vulgarian way, Trump is...despotism embodied.

If he's not handed his ass in the midterms...

Have a good weekend.

The High Priests Of The Church Of The Savvy



Count me with Charles Pierce on this one. Elizabeth Warren was trying to put an ugly smear to rest, not make any claim to special status. End of story, total story. Move on.

But the where-are-the-Republican-heroes-press and their enablers in the Democratic Party (the latter always ready to form up in a circular firing squad) are gonna do their thing every time.

Meanwhile, the new normal is the fucking President is an accessory after the fact to, ahem, murder.

Goddamn.

He Will Be Known As Tiny



Thus let it be written, thus let it be done.

It's A Cult



I'm sure I'm repeating, but it's worth saying over and over: Trump's lunatic base is enthralled, so forget about it. Don't even try. Instead, look at what he's said, what he's saying, and how equally lunatic it is -- rogue killers (conveniently packing bone saws)? I didn't watch, but did read about the 60 Minutes interview...this morning's lies re: his empty pledge to donate money to a charity of Elizabeth Warren's choice? His creepy remarks about needing to personally administer any DNA test?

If that's what you want leading the United States, the global superpower and erstwhile leader of the Free World...

Friday



There's plenty of other news, but a moment for the victims of the storm. Geezus.

Have a good weekend.

"I Alone Can Fix It"



I'm sure there's a rally or photo op far more important than a storm in Florida...

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

They're All In With Him



Never Trump? Laff. Nevermore, and never much of a never to begin with. The GOP is Trump, and Trump is the GOP.

Extra Day Off

Was out of town for a few days and still catching up. Back tomorrow. As always, thanks to whoever stops by.

Friday, October 05, 2018

If You Thought Susan Collins Or Jeff Flake Would Fix Things...




Nope, and nope.



And that means it's quite a mess for quite some time. The judiciary is the branch of government that has the greatest effect on our daily lives.

Now the top of the judicial pyramid is firmly wingnut.

Let that sink in.

Can things change for the better? Yeah, but not overnight. All the same, no time to give up. Next month is a change to show the Trumpistas exactly what we think. 

Have a good weekend.
