Putin and Puppet

Vlad pulling the strings...

Have a nice holiday. See you in the New Year.

An Oily Stain

Trump's anti-corruption defense should never have passed even the simplest of laugh tests...though thanks to a media filled with Chuck Todds, here we are.

Have a good weekend.

Thursday, December 26, 2019


In fairness to Chuck, he didn't invent High Broderism, and the vastly overrated Tim Russert had already made a mockery of MTP, but he sure followed in their clown sized footprints.

America's Mayor

Just me, but my gut feeling is to avoid people like this at all costs.

Losing A Little Luster?

Ah, probably not for the die hard MAGAts, but this, after impeachment, isn't winning the day either.

Have a good weekend.

Moscow Mitch Has A Sad

He discovered a new-found love of precedent. Imagine.

Oh, and he hates Moscow Mitch.

Doesn't want anyone to call him Moscow Mitch.

Moscow Mitch. The human turtle, and I'm not entirely certain about the human part.

Trump L'Oeil

I swear, it's the fucking librul media that's DJT's biggest enabler, normalizing his toddler's tantrum of a letter yesterday...and this morning, on the way to work, NPR managed to display the sort of serious- persons credulity that got us here in the first place.

Forget the exact verbiage, and fuck all that it really matters, but the gist was that Democrats who won midterm races in Trump districts needed to be careful, because, you know, Trump...

Or, I dunno, maybe Democrats won midterm races in Trump districts because of Trump. Ever think that?

Nope. Not worthy of discussion on National Public Radio.

But maybe as a follow up/in depth coverage, they can exhume the corpse of Howard Baker or Fred Thompson, declare either/both to have not decayed whatsoever, and canonize them as Republican Heroes...

Facts Are Meaningless To Cults

Moscow Mitch is planning a Potemkin trial, and Rudy Giuliani's gone from thrown under the bus to political yo-yo, daily if not hourly either the president's personal lawyer or someone Trump only kind of, sort of, knows, and who has many clients.

For fuck's sake, idiot media: maybe Rudy's Ukraine fact finding mission is as empty as Trump's birther quest? It's not like DJT doesn't have a history of fraud. Do your goddamned job...

If They're Planning A Sham/Show Trial

Might as well put Moscow Mitch nominally in charge, though we all know he's only a public face who will do whatever his Kremlin masters order.

Note To Democrats...

If you end up losing, here's who you've lost to. Think about that.

And...I was never much of a Pelosi fan, but I did have a certain respect for her achievement of high office. However, I think she's blown this one, and worse still, bigly. As I heard/read elsewhere, campaigning on "kitchen table" issues during a period of relative economic prosperity while playing down the real fact that DJT is a narcissistic psychopath we got to where we are today.

If Trump Was A James Bond Villain

Except that, he wouldn't be...because even Bond villains are classier -- hence Goldfinger, and not Shitheel.

No link today -- I'm sure I could find something if I felt like looking, but what's the point? Trump, deep down, isn't even a world class conniver. He's a fucking wrestling heel.

A Bunch Of Fucking Goons

Just an offhand thought, but I can't get over how pretty much every one on Trump's side -- only had time to do up four here, but -- every one of the MAGAts is super easy to do up as a mafia mug shot.

They're fucking goons.

Just Another Monday In The Cult Of DJT

And no, they won't quit him even when it's revealed that all along he's been Putin's puppet.

The only question is whether they're enough to cobble together another bare electoral victory (note: I thought this was the case -- DJT's alleged landslide was only one more electoral vote than JFK's in 1960, which I was taught was one of the closest elections in history). Probably not...without a fair bit of voter suppression...

Hope everyone had a nice holiday.

Seeking Shelter...

America's Mayor's choices are the wrong side of a bus or the wrong side of a jail cell, it seems...

More limited posting between ongoing work stuff and the holiday. Maybe something between now and Monday, but if not, see you then. Thanks for visiting.

Hope You're Enjoying The New Normal

Still busy here, so I'm taking a Photoshop day off, but hey, I'm so old I remember when bomb cyclones weren't an annual event.

Because Who Will Speak For The Plutocrats?

Well, he can reduce his wealth tax burden by self-financing...


Still in a getting-slammed-at-work situation, so if I'm a little late to post or can't do so at all, that's why...

On A Personal Note

So, back to more usual stuff tomorrow, but I'd like to state for the record UPS has gone above and beyond in raising shitty customer service to a high art.

Until then...

Everything You'd Expect

Yesterday it was his minions, today, the main course. I'll skip linking to anything again today, but it's clear from the public testimony that If Nixon was the dark side of the American Spirit, Trump is the tawdry, cheap, clown veneer, dictator chic as reality television, PT Barnum minus the charm or intrigue. He is exactly what he appears to be: a liar who'd stomp your fingers for a few pennies in the street...the worst bead hog at Mardi Gras.

Meet Your GOP Intelligence Committee Delegation

OK, another busy day here, and I'm sure you've seen links to testimony elsewhere, but goddamn, even a limited reading makes it clear that the GOP nits don't even rise to the level of a halfway decent James Bond villain. They're clowns -- the Mr. Wints and Mr. Kidds of Congress...

Monday, November 18, 2019


Busy day, long story...and I can't take credit for today's picture, but it works for me.

Back tomorrow.

We Can Add "Convicted Criminal" To His CV

Oh, he's probably going to get an even shorter sentence than Michael Cohen, and it might even be in the same Club Fed, but it still means his history and obituary will include a guilty verdict.

Have a good weekend.

A Tale Of Two Hearings

They STILL can't get enough of him.

But they still aren't a majority. Not that I like to cite David Frum, but credit where it's due and when he's right.

Still A Puppet

And we know who's pulling the strings (hint: rhymes with Plaid Vutin).

Three Day Weekend

Back tomorrow. Hope you had/are having a nice holiday.

Little Man Shakes Tiny Fist...Again

Sorry for recycling a picture so quickly, but it's Friday, it's been a long week...and besides, Trump was even more psychotic than usual today. His tiny fist got quite the shake.

Have a good weekend.

Thursday, November 07, 2019

Sort Of Like Koppel's First TV Show...

Only instead of America Held Hostage, it's Ukraine...and Trump's the hostage taker.

Makes you feel good to be an American, no?

Toxic Republicanism Is Nothing New

You can go back further than Mitt or, Newt, and Trump is the just the tip of the toxic iceberg.

Reagan's alleged geniality didn't really mask his condescending attitude towards towards people of color, or the libs, Nixon's on tape ranting about, East Coast and/or Jewish elites (oh, and Saint Ronnie dropped one on Africa in a recently released recording). Goldwater might have personally been more or less honorable, but in his time the Birchers and Joe McCarthy -- and Roy Cohn -- were only the latest Red Baiters stretching back to before the New Deal, which itself is an object of hatred.

So let's not make Trump unique...and let's not pretend it ends with him.

But at the same time, it's some comfort, modest as it might be, to see the public might finally be getting tired of someone who puts the Id into Idiot.

And a media that's so afraid of calling it out that they've become witting or unwitting accomplices in a sorry exercise that's gone on for generations...

"Strange Parallel Universe"

Like, just maybe, a universe where Trump was exposed for the fraud he is?

If only...

Florida Man

True, not my best work, but it's been another long week, I'm tired, and Blogger's had problems loading images anyway.

Have a good weekend.

Photoshopping inspired by this and this.

Florida suits him, I think.

Yet Another "It's A Cult" Post

The latest on, well, pretty much everything DJT is...his cult still believes. Nothing will sway them.

But, if the World Series crowd is any indication, the cult isn't exactly the matter how many diners the Cletus Safari NY Times correspondents visit...

Does He Look Like A Guy With A Plan?

But, as others pointed out today, it speaks volumes that DJT can go to Chicago and spit on the city, can babble like a 9 year old about Baghdadi...but the punditry is concerned about whether the baseball fans were sufficiently civil...

Friday, October 25, 2019

Wednesday, October 23, 2019


Even as it becomes ever more apparent that DJT isn't just a shakedown creep -- he's a crude, cut rate one -- his lawyers insist he mustn't be touched. It would be an affront on his dignity (well, given that he doesn't have any, kind of a moot point, no?).

Gee, I think Bill Clinton might have found that a useful defense...

Meet Pierre Delecto

No Photoshopping today, but couldn't pass this story up.

Also, too
