Smart Phone, Dumb President



It's back in the headlines, but for a while the highly credible accusation of DJT's mind-numbingly dumb comments were eclipsed by...Justin Trudeau.

Lord, or should I say Mon Dieu?

This is exactly the sort of lunacy the corporate media can't or won't correct. To cite another example, idiot president's whining about alleged untreated San Francisco municipal waste...one, it's a lie, two, it's from an administration that's suing California over their more stringent automotive emission standards.

It's hard to not come to the conclusion that...we're fucked.

He's Still Bluffing



Another busy week so another recycled photo, but I'm sitting here watching -- of course -- librul MSNBC. They're talking about the DNI refusal to refer a whistleblower complaint to Congress as required by law.

Jeez -- c'mon, Democrats. Yeah, the evidence will be overwhelming, but you still have to push. Team Trump isn't going to self-impeach. Look at his latest stunt.

He's still bluffing...

Waffling only enables him further. Casual/low information voters view this as weakness.

Trump's opposition is doing more to enable him than his fellow grifting allies...

And In This Corner...



I heard Lewandowski's hearing ended on a more positive note for Democrats, though at least a few Twitter feeds pointed out it was after 6 pm.

Pathetic.

Yeah, minds are mostly made up, but watching Dems flail/flounder isn't the sort of message I'd want to send. And casual voters won't be impressed.

Post Debate Thread



Here's my take: didn't watch it, and it doesn't matter this early in the race. Besides, the Democratic candidate is running against this clown. Whoever gets nominated will have my vote. Sure, I've got preferences, but it doesn't matter.

Trump must be voted out.

Have a good weekend.

It's Not Just Trump, An Ongoing Series



The latest is North Carolina, but everywhere it's the same thing. Trump is causing the entire enterprise to rot...

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

All Your Base



If it wasn't already clear, yesterday's special election in North Carolina's 9th District spelled it out. There are no swing voters, there are no Reagan Democrats to appeal to by going all moderate. The upcoming election is base versus base. So, Dems...come up with something that appeals to your base, like, oh, I don't know, opposing Trump with everything you've got.

You might even win.

Yeah, There Are More Important Things...



But today's a chance to officially retire an old work that's sat in an archive folder for, I dunno, a decade so so, maybe?

It won't be missed.

The same goes for the rest of the Palins.

Fish Rot From The Head



But it eventually spreads to the rest of the body.

Some people just want to watch the world burn...until it affects them personally.

Bigger Stakes Than Moose And Squirrel



Boris goes after the British Parliament...

Note: taking the week off. If you stop by--and I know it's not many, but still--thanks, and see you then.

Tick Tock, Motherfucker



It's not going to be hidden forever. At best, he'll be seen as a liar, more likely, a launderer.

About the only down side to this is the continuous pathetic flailing by the Democratic leadership, who can't or won't even pretend to have enough of a spine to stand up and/or investigate. Christ.

Trump Calls It Negotiating



To everyone else (except maybe the idiots at Politico), it's a tantrum. Or delusions.

And if a real crisis comes up...

Chosen By Whom And For What?



More like touched in the head, and more than a little bit.

I swear...again, I can't imagine any Democrat getting this much normalization/slack from the idiot media. Hell, even pretty much any other Republican other than maybe Gingrich would at least shut up and stay out of sight for a while.

This isn't normal.

Vintage White Whine



Plenty of typical wingnut reactions, but Dave Zirin's reply to Newt hits the spot.

Friday



A long week, I'm tired, so here's an old picture and a reminder -- he's still bluffing, he's still got nothing, and if the economy falls off the cliff, he still doesn't have a clue.

Have a good weekend.

A Boy And His Toys



Probably just more smoke from his ass, but there's a slight possibility President Dumbass revealed another military secret.

Not that I'm in favor of more top-secret or classified stuff, but tact or discretion is something a president ought to have...

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Tariff-ic



And of course Dumbass can't even keep his story straight. Delaying tariffs to keep prices down for Christmas is pretty clear proof it's a backdoor tax on US consumers, not foreign businesses.

Oh, and the word tariff, as I kind of thought it might, has an Arabic origin...

If History Repeats In 2020



It'll get even stormier, no pun intended.

I've never been naïve about the myth of the US versus the reality...but there was at least some element of truth in the myth...and White Nationalism/White Supremacy was not part of it...

Just saying.

Since We're Finally Talking Seriously About Background Checks For Gun Buyers



Perhaps we can also discuss serious background checks on presidential candidates. Maybe our free press could, I don't know, do their job and investigate what DJT might be hiding...like laundered Russian cash, among a host of things...

Have a good weekend.

It's Not Exactly A Secret



It's all about him, it's always about him. Even today.

And his followers are a goddamned cult.

Which side are you on?

Only The Tip Of The Iceberg




Well, for as long as there are icebergs...but that said, the GOP has been playing The Southern Strategy for a long time...

I sincerely hope the responsible gun owners appreciate the lengths this country goes to in ensuring that anyone -- anyone -- can buy an assault rifle.

Don't Overthink This



I'm not really bothering with the Democratic debates, one, it's not really a debate, two, I'd vote for ANY Democratic candidate over the lying sack of shit that's Donald Trump.

I'd even vote for a literal sack of shit over Trump...lesser of evils.

So I'm not getting drawn into the media's asshat game of sound bites, zingers, memorable moments, whatever the fuck else they'll say...and not to hop on the Buttigieg train -- I won't -- but he was dead on when he said the GOP will label anything and everything short of privatized for-profit prisons as socialism. And fuck Chris Matthews with his attempted gotcha of Elizabeth Warren.

The election will be about Donald Trump. He's a horrible person who's done horrible things. If you can live with that and will vote for him, then...fuck you.

Yet Another Example...



Of what a waste of food and oxygen. The guy's a walking, lying, sack of shit.

The election might be 16 months or so away, but...if anyone hasn't made up their mind yet...

Here's To The State Of Mississippi



Doing its part to ensure Loosiana is only the second dumbest state in the Union (well, maybe third, because, Alabama).

To be honest, it's not like I haven't done some really dumb things, especially when I was younger. On the other hand, wanna see privilege in action? At worst, these fine examples will have to suck it up and go to Starkville...

Have a good weekend.

Fucking Media



They're every bit as MAGA-ty as the true believers. Even as Trump brands them fake news and does everything in his power to get his minions enraged to the point of violence against them.

Idiots.

Moment of Zen Mueller



OK, Democrats, time to show some leadership...by leading.

Trump is a horrible, awful human being. And a crook.

His followers are a cult. Don't bother with them.

The 2018 midterms were a message. Listen...and then...lead.

Geez.

Let's Not Get Our Hopes Up Too High



To be fair, everything I've heard or read suggests Robert Mueller is a decent human being, a Vietnam War veteran, a career lawyer/law enforcement officer, whatever...

But Democrats relying on Mueller to save them, or turning to him as a patron, or object of veneration, underscores how pathetic the Dems are as a political organization. Once again, pinning their hopes on a Republican Hero, i.e., starting from a position so subordinate they'll never be anything but GOP-Lite, or even GOP mainstream of barely a decade or two ago.

I'm tired of having to apologize for believing the promotion of basic human decency and civil society is, yeah, a function of the government.

There's Always A Tweet



Or a video/audio clip. And of course because Trump is now the GOP, it just gets normalized.

This is not good.

Just another week of the good, the bad...and the worse.

Have a nice weekend.

A Modern Day Millard Fillmore



"Racist Ass" description courtesy of Ted Lieu.

Ironic given some people think Fillmore and Trump portrayer Alec Baldwin resemble each other (you can Google it).

But there's no irony in the xenophobia and racism.

So, time to stop cowering in fear over whether Trump's racist, xenophobic base can pull off another fluke win. Sure, they'll do everything they can, for lack of a better term, think of: wholesale fearmongering, voter suppression, accepting help from Russians and anyone else.

And if that's enough to win, well...shit.

But I'm hoping, assuming -- and voting -- like it isn't.

It wasn't in 2016. Trump LOST the vote. He only won because of weird rules.

And in 2020 he's going to be even less popular.

Because Of Course Three Year Olds Are Capable Of Making Complex Decisions



Sorry to repeat, but this is not a debate between two reasonable viewpoints. It's whether we want our nation to be reasonably civilized ... or not.

Monday, July 15, 2019

Is Anyone Surprised?



Of course Trump will hop on the racism bandwagon. That's been the strategy all along.

The election is basically over except for the voting, and their cruelty. If, for reasons I can't begin to imagine, people are comfortable with kids in cages and concentration camps, they'll vote for the asshole. I'm obviously hoping most people aren't. They weren't in 2016, and they weren't in 2018.

The only way they can win in 2020 is fraud...oh, and/or if the Dems fuck it all up...

Incitatus For Next Labor Secretary?



But let's keep hoping the faith based community will impose some self-discipline on this administration...

Otherwise...have a good weekend.

Also, had a great vacation except for some pretty awful travel -- long delays, missed connections. Definitely hoping for better luck on my next trip, whenever that might be.

It Was Barzini All Along



But Trump's no Don Corleone. Remember, he bankrupted a casino. Meanwhile, Vlad's thinking long term and globally.

Not Gone Yet

But away on vacation for at least another day or two. Thanks to whoever stops by, and should be posting again soon.

Friday, June 28, 2019

Off Day...



And probably only a post or two next week while I take a vacation. Thanks to anyone who stops by, see you when I return.

Exclusive Look At Trump During the FBN Interview



Or maybe it's a look in on his live tweeting of tonight's debate...either way, what's amazing, or creepy, is that neither would be surprising.
