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...

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.

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.

The Whitewashing Begins



Of course it was all Kabuki/for show. And JNK was particularly ugly in his dismissal.

But credit for those who fought the good fight...and another big example of why you sometimes have to look big picture and accept a lesser of evils (i.e., the 2016 election). Greater evils will do...greater evil.

Tired Of All The Winning Yet?



Great, mock a survivor of sexual assault...and claim to be concerned for, who? Yourself? That's what it sounds like to me.

Asshole.

In a month voters can take the first step in turning this around. Goddamn let's hope.

President Empty Calories



And from the least surprising reporting department, um, yes, the President of the United States is a cheat and a fraud, and has the attention span of a gnat with ADHD.

But, you know, her emails.

One Year On



There's more time later this week for Kavanaugh, or the ongoing fiasco that is the Trump administration, but today marks the one year anniversary of the Las Vegas mass shooting, and it's important to remember both the victims and the survivors.

It's not like on TV, when all is ok by the end of the hour.

Back tomorrow.

High Drama?



No, pretty sure more Kabuki theater, but that's all we've got for now. Would Kavanaugh be any less of a vindictive wingnut in the absence of what's now clear evidence he's a vindictive wingnut?

Nope.

And while it might be a bit late for this one, maybe it'll be a costly lesson in why you sometimes have to hold your nose and lesser-of-evils your vote. Hell, I've done that pretty much every election I can remember.

Have a good weekend.

Guess We Saw Why Trump Nominated Him



And it's pretty clear what the stakes are in just over a month...and what the stakes were in 2016. Goddamn.

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

No Shit It's The Fucking Twilight Zone



From the blind pig finds an acorn now and then department, Kavanaugh used the term Twilight Zone. Well, yeah. It's all a fucking Twilight Zone, and it's been that way since Mr. Self-Described Big Brain descended the escalator in 2015. Kavanaugh's the perfect Trumpian candidate. He and Trump deserve each other. But do we deserve either? Goddamn, let's hope not.

The UN Hopes You Enjoyed The Comedy Segment



Huge entertainment. Terrific, really.

Monday, September 24, 2018

A Regular Protege



Only the best people...which by Trump "grab 'em" standards, makes Kavanaugh one of the team (even as his cringeworthy Faux News interview demonstrates how ready he is to humiliate himself...well, lifetime appointment, eh?)...just over a month to the midterms...

Friday, September 21, 2018

He Was A DKE



Pretty much explains things.

Have a good weekend. Hopefully things will be back to normal here next week.

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Trump Ship



Just the latest...and remember, what we think is appalling his base finds appealing. The serial lying, the callous, cloddish behavior, whatever.

Keep that in mind, and if you're part of the group that finds it appalling, vote. Because it won't go away if you don't.

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Oh, Just STFU...Both Of You



You get a creep like Kavanaugh when a creep like DJT backdoors his way into the Oval Office. Goddamn.

And...am recycling a photo because I'm on hiatus...a problem at my new address has put me in temporary exile. I should be back to normal by the end of the week. Until then...thanks for stopping by, as always.

Off Today

Need to take a personal day for various reasons. Back tomorrow.

Winning



It's still possible that a Trump response will at least be a money drop if not moderately competent, but only because it's an election year. Period.

Back tomorrow.

Couch Potato Praises Himself



Unfuckingbelievable. That's from today...

Monday, September 10, 2018

Paper Towels For The Carolinas



Well, maybe. Trump might be brainless, but if his handlers have any sense, they'll do what Bush did in Florida in 2004. Truckloads of cash. Because it's not Puerto Rico.

That said, no ill feelings towards anyone in the storm's path. Good luck.

Presidential



If by presidential you mean Nixonian.

Have a good weekend.

Adding Another



Not an all-inclusive list, I'm sure there are others, but previously at this humble site, Mitch (McConnell) and Mike (Pence) have been tagged with the backpfeifengesict label. Brett deserves it too.

By taking the day off. See you tomorrow.

Day...Whatever



And not exactly news: "Trump Is Nuts."

Grass is green. The sky is blue. Water is wet.

Back tomorrow.

The I Word



Last week it was Racist Bannon, this week Trump himself and various fellow travelers pretending to dare and double dare the Democrats...fuck that.

Easiest answer: if there are impeachable offenses, impeach (um, there are -- duh). Who decides? That's a little trickier, given that impeachment is political. However, you could base the political act of impeachment on, I dunno, the Mueller report, or even on Trump's own words.

And if this were a Democratic president, impeachment would be the least of their worries at this point. No way would Obama have made it this far, and I doubt Bill Clinton would have either. Hillary Clinton? Don't make me laugh: the GOP would impeach her for breathing.

The President's Lawyer Has Spoken



OK, and this isn't even the only thing that stands out. Every day is another frontal assault on if not actual laws, just common decency (e.g., calling John Dean a rat, which incidentally confirms more about Trump himself)...but "truth isn't truth" should merit attention. What. The. Fuck?

Just Another Asshole Move



First, as others note, it's not like we should be weeping for John Brennan. But...think of the shitfit the twerp GOPers would be throwing if a Democratic president (say, god forbid, HRC) had pulled a stunt like this. Instead, just another day at the office.

Fuck 'em.

So, Did He Or Didn't He?



Of course he did. Duh. The racism is a feature, not a bug.

I'd Choose A Different Martyr For My Cause



But I guess when you've gone all in on the crazy...

Have a good weekend.

OK, Not As Awful As I First Thought, But...


But still, that they're looking to do whatever to placate Big Chemical, as if giving a shit about contamination is just so inconvenient...as I've said before, it's less left versus right and more aggressively ignorant versus more-or-less-grown-up and sane. Goddamn.

Deplorable Enough For You?



Again, basket of deplorables is being kind...

Note: another busy week here. Will be a bit more, um, creative (I hope) once things calm a bit...
