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...

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 »

Al Franken took one for the team, but it may have been the wrong team

Al Franken took one for the team, but it may have been the wrong team
The following was first posted in December, 2017.  I’m re-posting it now to kick start the Bring Back Franken movement: Senator Al Franken (D-MN) resigned his Senate seat over allegations of sexual misconduct.  Franken’s resignation is a microcosm of the Bizzaro world that now comprises what we laughingly call our political system.

With New Indictments, It Looks Like Dishonest Don Sold Out His Country Long Before He Announced His Candidacy
Dishonest Don wants you to believe that the thirteen indictments announced by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday exonerate him. The beauty of Twitter is that you can tweet out your delusions to your heart’s content. Trump-appointed National Security Chief H.R. McMaster had another take on the indictments. According to McMaster, the evidence that... Read more »

Is Moral Bankruptcy Too High a Price to Pay for a Soaring 401K?

Is Moral Bankruptcy Too High a Price to Pay for a Soaring 401K?
If your answer to the above question is no, you need read no further.  You got your wish. It’s difficult to hate a president reigning over a stock market that makes new highs on a daily basis.

Can the President of the United States be Too Stupid to Know the Difference Between Weather and Climate?

Can the President of the United States be Too Stupid to Know the Difference Between Weather and Climate?
Depending upon how you interpret the question posed above, the answer could be “yes” or it could be “no.” The word “can” refers to the ability to do something, ie “He sure can run fast.” It also refers to permission to do something, ie “You can use my phone.” If you’re asking if we should...

Al Franken took one for the team, but it may have been the wrong team
  Senator Al Franken (D-MN) announced that he plans to resign his Senate seat in the coming weeks.  He didn’t actually resign, but said that he was going to in the near future. It may be splitting hairs, but some of us are clinging to that hair. Franken’s resignation is a microcosm of the Bizzaro... Read more »

It's Pretty Clear that Russia's Meddling Went a Long Way to get Donald Trump Elected
Bill Maher has an occasional segment on his show, Real Time entitled “I don’t know it for a fact, I just know it’s true.” I don’t know it for a fact, but Russia’s responsibility for the election of Donald Trump is something that I just know is true. Despite Trump’s claim of a landslide victory,... Read more »

If You Don't Think Donald J. Trump Is a Jackass, Please Stand Up and Bray

If You Don't Think Donald J. Trump Is a Jackass, Please Stand Up and Bray
It may be rude to say that Donald J. Trump is a jackass, but that is an unavoidable conclusion.  I apologize to anyone offended by that image, but it may be the least offensive noun I have to offer. It’s not that his lies, big and small are legendary.  And stupid.  Most times they contradict... Read more »
