Did Robert Mueller sell out his country or were we just victims of his hubris?

Did Robert Mueller sell out his country or were we just victims of his hubris?
Robert Mueller’s perpetual refrain following the release of his highly anticipated report was that the report speaks for itself. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never heard a stack of paper utter a single word. Even if Mueller’s report was somehow imbued with magical powers and could actually speak, no one would have heard...

Boundaries? We don't need no stinking boundaries

Boundaries?  We don't need no stinking boundaries
It’s been almost three weeks since I read the subject column of this piece and I’m still struggling to respond. Cal Thomas and his ilk skate by regurgitating worn out tropes and talking points, making any attempted counterpoint the equivalent of trying to get your dog to stop licking himself. We get it. Democrats are... Read more »

Cookies: A microcosm of the GOP shell game

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines shell game as: FRAUD, especially a swindle involving the substitution of something of little or no value for a valuable item. Unquestionably, Donald Trump is a fraud and his word is of little or no value. Republicans’ words have had very little value for a very long time, but in the... Read more »

The Nazis are coming!: GOP embraces the Fourth Reich

The first part of the above title is a paraphrase of something that never happened. Paul Revere never said, The British are coming, but that’s a story for another day. The Nazis however, are not just coming, they have arrived. Thanks to Donald Trump and the Right’s obsequious and frantic attempts to pander to his... Read more »

The now dead Rush Limbaugh

The now dead Rush Limbaugh
In Friday’s post, Tucker Carlson should stick to racism, it’s what he knows best, I referred to Rush Limbaugh as the now dead, Rush Limbaugh.  It’s like the old joke that circulates after every stock market crash (something that hasn’t happened since Barack Obama became president). In the wake of a crash, Kenny Mesirow, who... Read more »

Jenna Ryan is guilty AND stupid, an unfortunate combination (for her)

Jenna Ryan is guilty AND stupid, an unfortunate combination (for her)
There’s a reason that Texas drawls make people sound stupid and Jenna Ryan may be the poster girl for just that. Ryan, as seen on TV is the Carrollton, TX real estate lady who was arrested and charged with knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building without lawful authority and disorderly conduct on Capitol...

Is it true that Biden wants to make this country Socialist?

Is it true that Biden wants to make this country Socialist?
A Mr. Richard Feder from Fort Lee, N.J., emailed me the following last week: Is it true that Biden wants to make this country socialist or is that just republican propaganda? Recalling Mr. Feder from Saturday Night Live’s Roseanne Roseannadanna segments, I didn’t take the question seriously. Turns out, Mr. Feder was dead serious. This... Read more »

The ghost of Christmas present

The ghost of Christmas present
I posted some old Christmas stuff last week including, Christmas magic through the eyes of a natural born Scrooge (2017), Do you really think the government won’t let you say Merry Christmas? (2016) and Merry Christmas to you, whether you like it or not (2015). Ah, but I was so much older then, I’m younger... Read more »

Donnie Trump keeps telling supporters their shoes are untied

Donnie Trump keeps telling supporters their shoes are untied
It’s one of the oldest tricks in the book. Chevy Chase used it in the movie, Fletch, where he told a guy holding a shotgun to tie his shoe laces. As soon as the guy looked down, Fletch (Chase) kicked him in the balls and beat feet. It’s a neat distraction and seems to work... Read more »
