Death and boozama in the South Pacific

Death and boozama in the South Pacific
Warning: This is a very old joke Derek and Phil were long time sailing buddies, three years into an around the world adventure. Somewhere in the South Pacific a terrible storm destroyed their boat and set them adrift 100 yards offshore of an uncharted island inhabited by a strange group of natives. Derek and Phil...

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 »

Donald Trump and the death of American exceptionalism

Donald Trump and the death of American exceptionalism
America First is the emptiest of all mantras, every bit of evidence strongly demonstrating that Donald Trump’s actual policy is Trump first.  In all things. It’s been Trump first over America’s national security, over the murder of a Washington Post journalist, over the health of our planet and over the very existence of a free... 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 »

Is impeachment a turning point for Donald Trump or just one more non-event?

Is impeachment a turning point for Donald Trump or just one more non-event?
The first turning point in Donald Trump’s run for the presidency seemed to come on the day he announced it. Who could launch a presidential campaign from a platform based on the criminality of Mexicans? About Jeb Bush, Trump said, He has to like the Mexican illegals because of his wife. So much for the...

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 »

Fox viewers sum up the destruction of America by labeling it "just politics"

Fox viewers sum up the destruction of America by labeling it "just politics"
A popular throw away line for Fox’s audience is as dangerous as it is simpleminded.  By saying it’s just politics, they relieve themselves of the necessity to know things. Ms. Danine L. of Winnetka, Illinois called her parents last week to ask them to turn off the Mueller hearings.  She told them that it was... Read more »

Is "Love it or leave it" the same as "Go back"?

Is "Love it or leave it" the same as "Go back"?
The short answer is No, they are very different.  It’s like comparing a pep rally before the big homecoming game to Kristallnacht. Things got a little rough back there in the ’60’s and ’70’s, you can google it.  On one side we had “Hell no, we won’t go, Draft beer, not students” and even a... Read more »

Will Robert Mueller defend America or show up in a MAGA hat?

Will Robert Mueller defend America or show up in a MAGA hat?
Back in May, I wrote a piece entitled, Why did Robert Mueller fail to protect America from William Barr?  Repercussions of that failure have been rippling across this country like aftershocks of a 7.0 earthquake. Mueller may have finished his report and handed it to his boss, as is required of a special counsel, but... Read more »

Trumpsters dig in as the swamp runneth over

Trumpsters dig in as the swamp runneth over
Just about everything Trump is ridiculous and not in a funny way.  He speaks like a child, demands apologies after insulting people and his lack of historic reference is spellbinding. Revolutionary soldiers taking airports? Trump ran on a promise to “drain the swamp,” but instead has turned Washington into a toxic mix of nepotism, cronyism,... Read more »
