Did Susan Collins have a consciencectomy or did she overdose on the Kool-Aid?

Did Susan Collins have a consciencectomy or did she overdose on the Kool-Aid?
Consciencectomy – the complete removal of one’s conscience Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) has often been a reasonable voice in the maelstrom of hyperpartisan constipation. I liked Senator Collins. Now I question her choice of speech writers as well as her choice of Supreme Court justices. Collins said something on Sunday that sounded like she didn’t... Read more »

If Brett Kavanaugh's kids are traumatized by the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, it's just too damn bad

If Brett Kavanaugh's kids are traumatized by the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, it's just too damn bad
The Senate hearings on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination were tumultuous.  Amidst objections over the lack of documentation provided and shouting protesters, Kavanaugh’s two daughters, Margaret (13) and Elizabeth (10) were removed from the proceedings. One insider said, “It was very unpleasant for young children.” Politics is never pleasant, but this is what Brett Kavanaugh... Read more »

OK, dickhead, what ABOUT Benghazi?

OK, dickhead, what ABOUT Benghazi?
America is in the throes of a virulent disease eating away at the fabric of democracy. It is deadlier than flesh eating bacteria and consumes from within. Whataboutism is not new, but the pandemic spreading across our nation is destroying the concept of objective reality.  Donald Trump knows nothing about anything and he doesn’t want... Read more »

Senator John McCain loved a good fight, but he still managed to live above the fray

Senator John McCain loved a good fight, but he still managed to live above the fray
I can’t think of a single issue about which I agreed with Senator John McCain, but I never doubted his patriotism or his integrity. For me and for millions of Americans, a singular act in 1968 elevated John McCain to a level above us all. His refusal to leave his men behind after a year... Read more »

Did 9/11 really happen or is it just Libtard, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton fake news?

Did 9/11 really happen or is it just Libtard, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton fake news?
Conspiracy theories about the events of September 11, 2001 abound but, we all seem to agree that something horrible happened on that day. There’s a generation of kids about to enter college who were not even alive in 2001 and it will be interesting to see, in years to come how they carry that event... Read more »

Is Jon Meacham naive about the "Soul of America"?

Is Jon Meacham naive about the "Soul of America"?
In his new book, “The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels,” Jon Meacham presents the historical context out of which arose Donald Trump. The book’s conclusion seems a myopic, “It’ll be OK.” If only I could believe that. The book is a wonderland of American history, presented by great writer. “The Soul... Read more »

Is Ivanka Trump really a feckless vagina?

Is Ivanka Trump really a feckless vagina?
Samantha Bee stirred up quite a controversy last month when she called First (and favorite) Daughter, Ivanka Trump a “feckless cunt.” Out of respect for our sensibilities, I substituted the the v-word for the c-word in the title. It’s hard to say how any word can become such anathema to all that it is universally... Read more »

How can we have a meeting without Russia?

How can we have a meeting without Russia?
When Donnie Trump asked a gaggle of reporters last week, “Why are we having a meeting without Russia being in the meeting?” no one answered. It seemed like a whimsical query, akin to Pink Floyd asking, “How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat?” Mr. Trump’s advocacy for Russia seems a... Read more »

Should Bob Iger apologize to Donald Trump or fire him?

Should Bob Iger apologize to Donald Trump or fire him?
This last week has been a Cword fest and I find myself flummoxed.   How we ever decided which words are nice and which are nasty is a mystery. George Carlin had a unique take on “dirty” words and you can watch that by clicking HERE. The whole Samantha Bee-Ivanka Trump thing is fading away, but... Read more »

Is Vladimir Putin tired of winning?

Is Vladimir Putin tired of winning?
During his campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly promised, “You’re going to get tired of winning.”  Who knew that he was talking to Vladimir Putin? Today’s politics is a zero sum game that is all about winners and losers. The loser of the 2016 presidential election is American democracy. The winner is Vladimir Putin. If Putin had... Read more »
