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.

What A Dick



I mean, that's really all I can think of. What a dick.

He might as well get used to it.

Have a good weekend.

But made for an orange-hued wuss.

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...

Taking A Day Off



Besides, how can I compete with this, um, howlingly awful "artwork" from wingnut John McNaughton. Enjoy.

Back tomorrow.

If this is the best you've got....

Just Saying



While the pundits normalize presidents paying hush money to mistresses and groveling to Vlad...the weather this summer is...brutal. Sure, fewer hurricanes, thank heavens, but...

Have a good weekend.

A GOP Tradition



Anyone asked Mark Foley what he thinks?

How Low Have They Set The Bar?



So, there's at least one tape -- and probably more -- of Trump discussing payments to conceal his personal indiscretions...and it's just another news cycle.

More or less equal billing is given to Trump's Walk of Fame star getting smashed.

No word yet on the star smasher's motivation, but I doubt it's anyone from the evangelical/morals/character counts faction, who used to be pretty adamant about that stuff. So adamant they impeached a president. But not anymore...

He Got Played



The dealmaker got dealt.Another instance of, well, what did we expect?

As for the, sure, dangerous, but also pathetic bleating about Iran? He did the same with North Korea before he folded like a cheap table. He's not even a paper tiger. More a pixel, um, rhymes with wussy.

Is This Even News?



Of course he was lying. His lips were moving and something emerged sounding vaguely like speech.

Have a good weekend.

Ready, Aim...



For the Ever Trumpers, nothing will sway them, sure -- they're all in for the racism and xenophobia -- but you don't need the diehards...

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Drink Up, Cultists



Yes, I'm like a broken record with this, but...it's not like we can reason with them, or compromise/meet half way. They're delusional. Just have to outvote them and hope that we do so by a margin big enough to overcome the gerrymandering and voter suppression crap...

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

Senior Moment



Trump misspoke. Yeah, right.

Look Who's Talking



Gee, you could barely see Putin's lips move...

Friday



Dotard is right. He claims he was misquoted in an interview that's on tape.

Right now, the only people being harmed -- and they're being hurt badly -- are at the very bottom of the political pyramid. But heaven help us all if a big crisis occurs...

Have a good weekend.

The Committee Will Come To Disorder



It's not just Trump, it's the whole party...

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Projection Much?



Aside: of course there's no pee tape, because no one uses tapes anymore. It's a DVD or (pun intentional) streaming video.

In another indication that irony's long dead, Trump's going to lecture Germany on ties to Russia? WTF?

Here's My Vote



Obviously doesn't make any difference, but everything about this guy suggests...bad things.

The Reality TV Show Must Go On



It can't get cancelled soon enough, but tonight's episode underscores just how pathetic...and that's the good news. The not-so-good news is a wingnut SCOTUS for as long as I can foresee.

Well...just heard Chris Hayes say Fox Noise. Yeah...more money, that's for sure.

Second Civil War Day



aka 4th of July.

Here's a link f you haven't seen it already...Alex Jones is such a nut he probably takes it seriously.

Optional soundtrack.

Happy Independence Day.

At The Summit



One on one...or one on none, considering Trump's singular lack of abilities.

From Fixer To Singer?



Michael Cohen is apparently thinking long and hard about his future...

Note: very busy this week...might be skipping a day or two at least.

For anyone who still stops by, well...thanks. And next week should be a bit more normal.

Bringing This Out Again



At least I assume it will be the empty gesture/box for Annapolis...though, and I haven't seen anything yet, there's a chance it could a big box of blame and vengeance, I suppose...

Back tomorrow...

Which Side Are You On?




OK, I think we're finally getting to an actual "clearest choice since [xyz]" moment. And yeah, it'll tell us what kind of country we are...

But Her Emails



Religious bigotry in the guise of national security. And that's just one any number of appalling things that happen every day in Trumpistan...

Monday, June 25, 2018

When (Selling Products) In Europe...



Business is business, and Trump of course doesn't have a clue...

But hey, he makes some people comfortable with their prejudices. Just like Reagan did.

Friday, June 22, 2018

Today's Shorter Trump



"They're rapists."

Not that it needs emphasis, but...just profoundly racist, as if horrific crimes can be blamed exclusively on (non-white) foreigners. Sick. Twisted.

Well, have a good weekend.

Hell, I was just looking for some ideas...didn't even have to Photoshop this.

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.

Friday, June 15, 2018

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...

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

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...
