Is it fair for Joe Biden to campaign while Donald Trump recovers from a self-inflicted disease?

Is it fair for Joe Biden to campaign while Donald Trump recovers from a self-inflicted disease?
Republicans are whining (again) that Joe Biden should refrain from campaigning until Little Donnie recovers. Irony doesn’t quite cover it and even the word hypocrisy is too kind by an order of magnitude.  Pure evil is the only term that comes to mind. Fairness is not a Republican virtue.  You would have to jump out a... Read more »

Sorry Don, I just don't have any Sympathy for the Devil

Sorry Don, I just don't have any Sympathy for the Devil
I rotate about 350 titles on my playlist, which generally includes about a dozen Rolling Stones songs. While refreshing that list the day after Trump’s inauguration, I reflexively deleted the Stones’ 1975 release, Sympathy for the Devil. It was odd, because I usually have trouble deleting anything from the Stones.  Last month I deleted nothing... Read more »

More Americans died of COVID-19 during the Republican National Convention than at Pearl Harbor or on 9/11
2,403 U.S. personnel died in the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on the morning of December 7, 1941.  On the morning of September 11, 2001, a surprise terrorist attack killed 2,977 civilians. Almost 3,700 Americans died of COVID-19 during the Republican National Convention last week. Of course, “Whatabout” Ronnie asks, “What about the Democratic National... Read more »

Donald J. Trump, president manque

Donald J. Trump, president manque
Struggling to write these posts, I sometimes find myself searching for words that don’t seem to exist.  This week I discovered a few that fill the void; let’s take them out for a spin. The first word is manque -pronounced man-kay’– and it describes someone who has failed to become what he might have been, someone who... Read more »

Making the case for Moscow Mitch's immediate (disappearance)

Making the case for Moscow Mitch's immediate (disappearance)
Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is the quintessential crook and he wears it like a badge of honor. He is everything you loathe about corrupt politicians and more. We can make this case anywhere along the course of Mitch’s career, but let’s start in January 2009, when he announced that his sole purpose for the following four years... Read more »

George Conway says that Kellyanne is a liar. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt

George Conway says that Kellyanne is a liar.  Let's give him the benefit of the doubt
George T. Conway III is a smart guy. He graduated from Harvard and got a law degree from Yale. He even dated Fox’s Laura Ingraham, just to prove his Right wing credentials. George and his wife, Kellyanne were enthusiastic supporters of Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy, although they would have supported any GOP candidate.  Before “Low... Read more »

Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Devin Nunes...and John Kass, too?

Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Devin Nunes...and John Kass, too?
The four people mentioned above earned their way into the title with one common act. Jordan, Meadows and Nunes are partisan operatives in the House of Representatives.  They have discarded their oaths to defend the Constitution in favor of protecting a criminal, which makes them accomplices. There are other GOP c0-conspirators like Lindsey Graham, Rand... Read more »

Don't let a chant of "Lock him up" lead you to a false equivalency

Don't let a chant of "Lock him up" lead you to a false equivalency
On Halloween I posted a piece entitled, To lock him up or not to lock him up, that is the question for Joe and Mika.  I got some very spooky responses. Now that I’ve gotten all the makeup off my face, I can see that upon deeper reflection, there’s a little more to it than... Read more »
