Vacation Day

Back tomorrow.

The Message We're Sending



The execrable Laura Ingraham says border detention facilities are just like summer camp...which is what you'd expect from her.

There's no reasonable debate. We either outvote them, or come to grips with the US being a fascist nation.

Space Cadet



And to think Jerry Brown got labeled Moonbeam.

What He Really Thinks



First, sure, he's a dumbass. And we can hope he's a one-off, a particularly egregious fluke...but...probably not. After Trump got elected, it hit me: his base voted for equally awful George W. Bush...but probably thought he was a little too, you know, soft and sophisticated.

Which means...we either have to outvote them...or accept that a fair number of our fellow citizens are way too comfortable with casual fascism...well, for my tastes.

Have a good weekend.

To Reiterate



Wrapped in the flag...carrying the cross. And a wall. Hope we can still learn from history...

OK, The Battle Lines Are Drawn



For small fingers, small credit: Trump HAS managed to turn the GOP into his personal cult, and it's clear the midterms will be a referendum on the Trump Cult.

Persuasion won't work, they've gone all in with their preferred bigot...we either outvote them or accept that we live amongst brain-dead racists.

Remember, Trump won the election but lost the vote. He's in office on a technicality.

And...lord knows what Mueller will reveal, but that will only further solidify the cultists, for whom Trump -- fucking Donald J. Trump -- will be their martyr. Only martyr I'm aware of with dictator chic taste (Saddam Hussein had the same preferences, but did anyone give a shit about him?).

Game on.

Substantively, A Nothing Burger, But...



As a statement about style, Trump's embrace of authoritarianism is worth noting. History will not be kind to him or his loyalists, which happen to include most if not all of the Republican Party.

There's no excuse for defending him.

The Grand Meeting Of The Child Minds...



Can hardly wait...and I guess there's nothing that can claim to be so much more important that it requires missing the encounter of the two dipshits.

Back tomorrow.

This Is Your Brain On Trump



No link, but you can find any number of things today...sigh.

And Anthony Bourdain died.

Have a good weekend...

Hoping For A Fall Cancellation



No links today, I'm sure you can find them, but between confusing the UK and Canada while somehow bizarrely recalling the War of 1812 (probably drilled into him at military school)...and then there's the ongoing, day-to-day that just sucks the energy out of you.

That said, things still look ok for mildly countering (emphasis on mild -- remember, they're Democrats) forces to prevail in November...and while the die hard Trumpistas will cling to their maximum leader, between their dwindling numbers and...undesirable? deplorable?...demographic, maybe we can find a mid-season replacement. Hell, I'd settle for celebrity Jeopardy...

Ave El Jefe



Pretty sure this is what John Dean was talking about when he said Trump's danger would come once he felt comfortable in the office. Yep.

No sense in trying to argue with them. Our only option is to outvote them...this year, and in 2020.

Toddler In Chief



Another day...

Apologies for the larger-than-usual number of recycled visuals. It's been that kind of week.

Have a good weekend.

Wrapped In The Flag...Carrying The Cross



Turns out the post title is not something Sinclair Lewis wrote or said, but the Nashville rally earlier this week was...ominous. And not in a good way.

The only solution is going to be voting them out. Forget impeachment, forget anything else. Vote...against this guy. He's a creep.

If he does manage to hold on, though...geez...not sure if I want to live in a country comfortable with his style...

The Commander In Tweet



I really don't care about Roseanne Barr -- her twitter remark was dumb, crass, and yeah, racist -- but that sort of low information existence has always been central to her popularity.

What IS pretty weird, though, is that we've got an alleged president who not only reacts, but makes it all about him. As he does with everything else.

I guess when your hands are that small, what else can you do but pick up a phone and thumb out a message...

Trump Paper Towels...They're Self-Absorbent



I think the real outrage is that it took the media this long to report the obvious. And perhaps the only greater outrage is that this is a matter of choice. We could easily afford protecting not just Puerto Rico, but the Gulf and Atlantic coasts as well...and if/when storms DO hit, we have the resources to rebuild...the fact that we don't do either...is pretty damning.

Memorial Day



Will be back tomorrow.

Good News From Ireland...I Hope



Haven't seen anything definite, but it looks like the pro-choice referendum will win...

Have a good weekend.

Bizarro World



To get a sense of the weirdness, Trump thinks he's the victim. Meanwhile, I dunno, but I feel like we're the ones stuck in the alternate dystopian universe...

I Keep This Box Handy For Days Like Today



Sigh...I wonder how many people even consider that the other school shooting victims are still just as dead and aren't coming back. And the victims today will also be just as dead when the next shooting happens. And there will be another shooting, if not at a school, then somewhere. And if the perpetrator isn't, you know, Moooslim, it'll all be forgotten by anyone not directly affected.

Have a good weekend.

Mo Brooks Versus A Box Of Rocks



A lot closer than you'd think...and the box may have eked out a narrow win.

The Heel



But wrestling isn't real life...and is a terrible model for public policy...

Church Of The Savvy



Politico takes the time to remind us that we're lowly proles, unlike our esteemed leaders...and those who report on them.

Have a good weekend.

The Clown Summit



OK, so a time and date were set. But...wow, in its own depraved way, it makes bizarro sense: Trump thinks his reputation will be enhanced by meeting with...the premier of North Korea.

The fanfare should be Hail to the Chief on kazoos...

Many People Are Saying I'm Not A Crook...Believe Me



It's almost a perfect cross of Bush Junior's stupid hubris and Nixon's vengeful evil.

Friday, May 04, 2018

Friday



Sure, there's a ton of more (or less) serious stuff to choose from, but it's fucking Friday...so how about a look at Mitt trying to be a, how do they say, 'human of the people'?

"My favorite meat is hot dog."

Have a good weekend.

Rudy Can Fail


Look who's flailing...though, forget where I saw this, but read somewhere Ghouliani's media availability is mostly an attempt to salvage what he can...Hail Mary, or, if you prefer, trying to turn chicken shit into...slightly more palatable chicken shit.

A Republic, If You Can Keep It



I guess we're going to find out...

Number One In The Nation



Give him a gold medal. He is truly the liar in chief.

Anything Happen Over The Weekend?



Oh, right: the wingers were soooooo disappointed by the vulgar Michelle Wolf while they conveniently ignored Trump's fascist manque performance in Michigan.

Goddamn...and it's only Monday.

No Collusion*



*depends on your definition of no...and collusion.

Also depends on whether you're a serial liar. Um. Duh.

Have a good weekend.

In Today's Episode Of Stupid And Crazy



Still amazing to me that the elite media is trying to pretend this is somehow normal.

Conservatives Discover A "New" Amendment



Turns out the US Constitution has more than just the 2nd (The Sacred Second), and for the wingnuts who've done some book learning, the 10th...

Monday, April 23, 2018

Follow The Money



Duh....

Hell, even if it's not the narrow or maybe I should say narrowest definition of collusion, it's quite a smoking gun.

If you read the Comey memos...

Have a good weekend.

Wow, just...wow. When you think it can't get any worse...

Yet Another Day



I don't even have a particular link to underscore the freak show aspect. Just...everything.

I guess these days last week is ancient news cycle history, but let's not forget...he actually said that.
