Is it no longer too soon? To talk honestly? Or are we supposed to stand down and let the Republicans continue on their closed door mission to take away health care from millions, stomp on non-Christians, back off on progress in the attempt to take a nation back 75 years, closet the gays, and starve the poor? Uhhhhh no.
Republicans were practicing for an annual meaningless baseball game they play against Democrats on a ball field in Alexandria, Virginia when shots rang out. There was a gunman attempting to pick them off one by one. Representative Steve Scalise, a bigoted white nationalist from Louisiana, went down from a bullet to the hip. Two members of Scalise's security detail sprung into action. Crystal Griner and David Bailey both engaged in a gun battle with the Bernie Bro (cant leave that out or Donnie Junior will cry)and were hit themselves. The gunman was killed and Scalise was rushed to the hospital in critical condition and is expected to recover and get back to being an asshole very soon.
Crystal Griner is a black gay woman married to another woman. The kind of person who people like Scalise abhor for whatever reason lies in their sick minds. David Bailey is a black man. So when a black man and a black woman save this right wing kook's life, you may think that a lot of views may become murky. Gun nuts who favor mentally ill domestic abusers being able to walk into any gun store and buying whatever the hell they want may think a bit more about their definition of freedom. They may think a bit more about accepting money from a terrorist organization like the NRA. They may think that since a black man and a black gay woman saved the life of a powerful House member maybe their views on gay rights and civil rights are outdated and plain wrong. Maybe they will think of the danger they faced that day and stop being pricks and love their fellow man no matter their color, their sexuality, their religion or their gender.
Christ what am I thinking? Of course thats not happening. Scalise will meet with Griner and Bailey, get his picture taken with them, put it in his fundraising letters, and get back to suppressing their rights just as fucking soon as he can. Guys like Scalise dont change. They are motivated by money and adulation from fellow white nationalists whining about "special rights" and "white male oppression". Look, I am glad Scalise wasnt killed and hope he recovers fully. I am recovering from a broken leg and at my age am afraid I'll never be the same so I identify with severe injuries. I also hope Scalise does have an awakening to his past behavior. His "I am David Duke without the baggage" days. But I doubt it.
These times are volatile. The right jumped on this shooting so fast to whine about the left and its "hatred". Donnie Junior went crazy on twitter blaming the lefties, I assume because Daddy's phone had been hidden by the adults in the White House. Sean Hannity and the other media creeps cried about leftist hate, Kellyanne Conway wept about how 50% of twitter would cheer her shooting. Cmon Kel, you aint that important and besides it would be more like 75%. But the right loves this shooting. Its the event they have been wishing for for years, that and another 9/11. Now they have it. A Bernie Bro shot one of their own. Yippee! Meanwhile another shooting actually killed 4 people the same day in San Francisco and not one of them gave a shit. Paul Ryan stood there and did his best impression of a human being by decrying the shooting and then went back to his Ayn Rand man cave and plotted to starve old people.
The shooting of these people was horrid and it is terrorism. Terrorism that is preventable by not allowing domestic abusers and crazy people to obtain guns. But they will do nothing. As usual. So to hell with all of them who fail to act.
Meanwhile, Nikos Giannopoulos, Rhode Island Teacher of the Year, doesnt give a damn what Trump's America thinks about him. And quite frankly, neither Trump nor Melania seem to care either and that is what makes this whole administration so deplorable. Nikos Giannopoulos teaches high school kids in Woonsocket (what a name) and is, gasp, a proud gay man. My goodness, Mike Pence must have moved even further back in his White House closet like office to avoid such nonsense such as honoring one of
Much like I hope that Scalise comes around to sanity. I hope America dismisses the nutjob 30% and comes to say no more. We have come a long way in my lifetime, not far enough by any means, but it is better than when I was a child. This whiplash type nonsense to go back to when white men were king and the rest stayed in their place will eventually be crushed. Progress is inevitable.
Good job Nikos.

I mean my eyes are bad, real bad, so bad I need glasses so thick you could cook a steak with a well placed sun. But even my lousy eyes saw a man murdered in his car by a cop with a gun up in Minnesota.
Philando Castile was by all accounts a decent guy, a good guy, a guy loved by students at the school he served as cafeteria supervisor. But Philando Castile had one "flaw". He was born black and for that he was gunned down in the passenger seat of a car driven by his fiance and with her 4 year old daughter watching from the back seat. Diamond Reynolds had the smarts to live stream the entire sickening affair on Facebook. Officer Jeronimo Yanez of the St Anthony Police Department, the shooter, was acquitted by a jury of his peers yesterday of manslaughter in the killing. Now again, I'm blinder than an NBA referee but watching that tape pretty much showed me a man shot numerous times for telling the truth to a police officer that he had a registered gun and was going to reach for his license. BAM! Philando Castile bled out in that car as the officer already began covering his own ass screaming that he told him NOT to do something he apparently did tell him. In front of a 4 year old child. And again, nothing will be done.
White people have the prevailing attitude that being a cop is one tough job and it is. The attitude is if you're not doing anything wrong you have nothing to worry about. Well thats pretty much true, if you're white. But its not true if you're black or Hispanic or in the case of Omaha, Nebraska, a Native American. You are constantly under police surveillance. Hell I think Castile had been pulled over 46 times for some strange reason. This crap has to stop.
Speaking of my bad eyes, I know I have seen videos of people, mostly minorities, being
I have seen James Boyd killed by police in Albuquerque, Richard Ramirez shot in Montana, Jason Harrison shot in Dallas, Eric Garner choked to death in New York for selling loosies, Kajieme Powell shot in St Louis, Charly Leundeu Keunang
Do my eyes deceive me? Only if I'm on a jury apparently.

Sometimes having a job sucks. I mean not only is it an activity so awful they have to pay you to do it, it takes 8 hours or more out of your day. Then you cant watch James Comey tear Donald F Trump a new comb-over in front of a gang of Trump apologists and a smaller band of super heroes bent on saving America from this cyclone of ineptitude called the
So I listened as much as I could. Things I learned from James Comey today.
1) Donald F Trump is a liar
2) Donald F Trump is under investigation for collusion with Russians bent on electing him their puppet president and for obstruction of justice.
3) Donald F Trump is such a slimy pile of scum, that grown men who are 6 foot 7 are begging others to not leave him alone with him ever again.
4) John McCain is a senile old crank. Talk about #Sad.
5) Republicans are throwing their hands in the air defending Trump and coming up with an even newer excuse. Donald Trump is a dumbfuck. Cut him some slack.
6) Donald Trump Jr is a pale imitation of his father on twitter. He tweets as fast as his crooked old man, but the content is only 39 year old crazy, not 70 year old syphilis crazy.
7) Idaho has elected some real boneheads to the Senate but Senator James Risch may be the boniest head of all.
8) Little Marco Rubio has no pride left in his lil body.
9) Senator John McCain watches late night Arizona Diamondbacks games proving he is a senile old crank
10) A liar like Sarah Huckabee Sanders defending a liar like Donald Trump is just so precious. Just like her Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm dress.
11) Jim Comey knew Trump lies like a 12 year old dog because he took notes after meeting with the Liar In Chief
12) Mike Pence and Jefferson Beauregard Sessions are just as guilty as the Spy in Chief
13) The Russian hookers definitely peed on Donald Trump or as Comey referred to it as "salacious" things he couldn't discuss in open hearings.
14) Trump is so lonely he has dinner with dullards like Tom Cotton
15) While Comey was telling the world what a complete slimy gob of algae Trump is, The House was making it easier for the big banks to fuck over the economy again
16) "Lordy I hope there are tapes" is as good as anything Alexander Butterfield said
17) Senator Roy Blunt (House Plant-Mo) asked a great question "“If the president hadn’t fired you, would you still be the FBI director?”. But it begs the question. How may times a day does Mitch McConnell have to water that idiot?
18) Senator Angus King (Mighty Mustache-Me) not being able to beat Comey to the punch with “Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest?” was the moment Trump went HUH? the loudest. Ya see Trump is a dumbfuck. See #5.
19) Trump's shyster lawyer, Mark Kasowitz, definitely tans at the same place Trump turns orange. And lose the Andrew Jackson hair. Or is that how you got the job? Because Trump admires genocidal maniacs?
20) James Comey may turn into the John Dean of this inevitable destruction of a putrid administration. For that all real Americans, not Russian puppets, should say thanks a lot.

Another crazy week has ended and another one has begun. This last 136 days of absolute chaos has been a nonstop descent into the cavern of irrelevance this country voted for. Well, again, not really, but whatevs. Nice going , hillbillies.
Conservatives became all pearl clutching earlier in the week by a picture posted by shock comedian
We heard from Donnie Junior, who seems to have taken point in defending his slap happy sperm donor. Donnie Junior attacked relentlessly. CNN, Kathy Griffin, CNN, CNN, CNN. When CNN eventually fired her from her 4 hour a year gig, it wasn't fast enough for the slayer of endangered species. Donnie Junior has learned, I'll give him that. He is becoming his father. A totally dishonest baby pool of orange slime.
Kathy Griffin then did what she should have NEVER done. Hold a presser with a publicity seeking lawyer and turn herself into a victim. Jesus, Kathy, the Trumpers already hate you, why piss off your fans by crying and turning yourself into yet more Trump debris? The Kathy Griffin I know and love would have apologized and then said no I meant to do this, hold up the phony severed head of a bloody Donnie Junior. Kathy let me down.
Bill Maher comes across to me as a complete asshole. I doubt I would like him in real life. I cringe when he attacks Islam, I roll my eyes when he shoves his atheism down my throat, but he's the voice of reason in so many ways, I watch him anyway. Maher dropped an N bomb while speaking with a neanderthal Senator from my state named Ben Sasse (Watch out-Ne). Now Sasse is likable, he comes across as reasonable, but when he asked Maher to come to Nebraska and "work the fields" Maher said he was more of a "house n***a" and moved on. Shit, Bill, cringe to the umpteenth power. What the fuck? You cant say that.
Cue the conservative outrage again. While most of the Trumpers were convening their Bund meetings and talking smack about towel heads and beaners and lezbos and homos and n bombs, the fact a libertarian said n***a made them spit out their Pabst. Oh my, the Trumper boners were raging as they could go apoplectic on a couple of comedians they hate in one goddamned week? What the hell? Heaven for Trumpers.
Maher also apologized after claiming his lack of sleep was causing him to drop the house n bomb. Well that and the fact Ben Sasse (Con Artist-Ne) is so charming he thought he was in friendly company. Now Bill has been in trouble before, and will be in trouble again, thats who he is. But this time he brushed the third rail. I hope he recovers, just as I do hope Kathy recovers. But it is going to be a rough few weeks for both.
London experienced another terrorism event. The world was outraged, again. Three mentally unstable criminals decided to run down people on a bridge in a rented truck, hop out and start stabbing innocent people. London police within 8 minutes shot all three of these creeps and the carnage was over. London went on with business. They upped police presence, the investigations of these criminal cells continued, and the Brits, stiff upper lip and all, and the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, told the world the truth. All Foreign leaders expressed their support for the British people and gave their condolences to the dead and injured. Well almost all.
Donald F Trump moved on this tragedy like he moved on bitches asking for it. He first pimped his travel ban. THEN he expressed sympathy. THEN he hammered the Muslim Mayor of London by taking a quote out of context. The slimy POTUS, elected with 3 million less votes than his opponent, then began a twitter tirade about his so called travel ban. Like a whiny ass teenager who knows he's beaten, Trump doubled down on the "travel ban" saying his Department of
NBC News, in its never ending quest to be liked by the righties (give up for chrissakes), unleashed Megyn Kelly onto America as a kind of desperate attempt to grab the crowd under 60 who doesnt watch 60 Minutes. Now Kelly, she of the soon to be late Fox News, is really nothing more than a right of center news reader who got onto the wrong side of the band of thugs called Donald F Trump fans by actually asking him a relevant question at a debate. Kelly caused a crowd of baboons to laugh and cheer as she noted Trump's misogyny and the downhill slide at Fox began. So NBC overpaid her to do what she does.
What she does is cover for the power structure, and ask softball questions of a murderous dictator who has the POTUS in his back pocket. Oh that damned pee tape again. Kelly is now the woman who got run over by a bunch of cultist hoodlums in the United States and run over by a hoodlum running Russia and by proxy, The United States. And for this, NBC pays her millions. Millions.
Looks like NBC News has given Megyn Kelly and early Christmas with their millions. That interview with the

Mark it down. June 1,2017. The day the United States of America gave up any moral leadership they may have had in the world and simply became a very large bully whose only claim to fame was we can bomb the shit out of you. What did anyone expect? The country somehow elected a 70 year old bloated ignoramus to lead it into this isolationist bubble. The somehow can be debated endlessly as Trump supporters use their great math skills to scream how 67 million is more than 64 million and how an affirmative action electoral system did its job by installing white supremacists into office or how upset they were by their
Donald F Trump is the goddamned fucking Anti-Christ and I dont even believe there's a Pro-Christ. This man, bent on settling personal scores, has become a danger to not only the United States, but now to the entire world. By pulling out of the Paris Accords in an attempt to turn the country back into 1940's Pittsburgh by appealing to a bunch of coal miners still destroying their lives willingly cuz Daddy was a coal miner and grandaddy was a coal miner and by gawd my kids will be coal miners too. Anyone with any sense of the future knows that coal is dead. There is no such thing as clean coal. Green is the way of the future. But Trumpski, the Putin puppet, will never stop catering to dummies clinging to the past. He has convinced them that up is down, left is right, Russia is our buddy and Germany is our enemy, and that a bad Kathy Griffin joke is far worse than a great Obama "joke".
I will not tell everyone I know all about the Paris Accords. I just assume people a whole lot smarter than me, like scientists and dummies like that, put the data together and other people smarter than me examined it. They then put it into an accord signed by every nation in the world other than Syria, in the midst of a revolution and led by a murderous despot, and Nicaragua, who though the Accords were drawn up by a bunch of pussies not willing to go far enough. And now us. A nation led by a Toddler In Chief who felt slighted by other leaders because they excluded him from building a whole lot of golf courses in Europe to make him even more money. That and the speculation that Putin told him to pull out to further a rift between our Allies of 70 years and us. Oh that damned pee tape.
Donald F Trump has to be stopped. The only people who can stop him are the Republicans. Thanks to gerrymandering and voter suppression, this party of greedy moral dwarfs owned by special interests won the Congress again. Two years is a long time. 2018 is the only hope we have left. To rid ourselves of this band of corporate puppets, soulless zombies, racists and outright idiots from any role in leading this nation into being an island of ignorance while the Russians and the Chinese take advantage is paramount to our survival as a world power. Yeah sure, we can drop bombs on people and kill thousands of
So on June 1, 2017 this overgrown orange pile of fungus has withdrawn us from the world. We can only hope that Mayors and Governors and responsible business leaders can tell the orange pile of toxic sludge to go pound coal with his base. For the next 18 months, its our only task. Throw these government hating pricks out.
Just dont get body slammed by petulant billionaires. Instead punch back. Punch hard.
To Pittsburgh I say, you are a modern thriving city insulted by an orange pile of soot. So enjoy your second straight Stanley Cup. You've earned it after that insult.

My father went to Europe 75 years ago to fight Nazism abroad. Thats him in Germany in 1945.
My Dad was and stayed a liberal Democrat his entire life. In fact, as he got older he became even more liberal.
He fought Nazis in France and Germany. Now, we have Nazis in the White House.
It was his birthday a few days ago. He would have been in his late 90's. Had he lived, this current state of affairs wold have made him crazy. I can hear him say, what the hell did I waste 4 years of my life for? To see THIS???
So, Dad, thanks for your service, and I promise to fight these creeps too.
Thanks to all who fought Nazis and Japanese imperialists back in the day. Your sacrifices will not be in vain.

Lets talk about Memorial Day coming up on Monday. While we hear about heroes and the brave men and women who have lost their lives defending their country in the military and that's fine and dandy and thanks for your service but lets talk about other heroes.
Like 23 year old Taelisin Myrddin Namkai-Meche and 53 year old Ricky Best and 21 year old Micah David Cole Fletcher all of Portland. While some Nazi piece of shit, no doubt emboldened by the election of a loudmouthed con man last November, started to rant at couple of teenaged girls in hajibs on a Portland train and began to approach them. As he became a threat to these kids, Taelisin, Ricky and Micah all stood up and defended these children from this pile of garbage (no names here of this creep fuck him) and two of them paid the ultimate price for their heroism. Taelisin Myriddin Namkai-Meche and Ricky Best were killed by this waste of air and Micah David Cole Fletcher was stabbed but lived. The train stopped, the girls ran for their lives, and the killer ran until he was captured by police. The video shows him asking to be shot by police which is why I am not a cop because I am so nice I'd have granted him his wish. I'm not posting a link to the video because this hunk of Nazi dung doesn't deserve any publicity whatsoever.
Yep these three guys are heroes. Nobody will say so tomorrow but they are. They fought the fucking Nazis every bit as much as my Dad did 70 years ago. The difference is my father had to get on a boat and go to Europe to do it. These three had to do it in the United States of America. If you have a few bucks to spare, Help these families out.
Richard Collins III was minding his own business on the University of Maryland campus, waiting for an Uber ride. When some piece of manure walked up to him and said something along the lines of move if you know whats good for you. When Lieutenant Collins (yea he was in the Army of the United States of America) stood his ground and said no, this degenerate pulled out a knife and stabbed Lt.Collins to death. The killer then ran away, probably to go brag about him killing a black man to his Alt Reich Facebook creeps.
Lt.Collins was due to graduate from Bowie State University within days of being
A woman goes on a racist rant at a Wal Mart to a Latina woman simply trying to reach around her to get something off the shelf. A black woman intervenes and gets called a n*****. Whoever this racist wench is must also feel emboldened by the election of a racist grifter last November who threatened to deport anyone and everyone his base doesnt like. You know his base? That racist witch above. And racist Wal Mart lady, thats a load of toilet paper you have in that cart proving you really are full of it. To Wal Marts credit and that doesnt happen here much, they threw her racist ass out, maybe forever.
Some guy in a wheelchair gets all offended because he hears a man speaking to his mother in Spanish because she lives in Puerto Rico. The highly articulate
Theres many more of course. Since the election of this heartless prick last November, these people have crawled out of the woodwork because they feel emboldened. Hey if the POTUS can say it, why cant I? The problem is many of these morons are violent. So watch yourselves when you see one of these Trumpers blow their tops.
Meanwhile in the White House, Donald F Trump, the instigator of all of this, tweets away about "Fake News" and brags about his doing
So when I see this orange glob of cattle droppings honor the dead (many of whom fought against guys like the ones he has surrounding him) I may just switch to something cheery and uplifting. Like 13 Reasons Why.

Back in the 1960's while I was doing time in Catholic school we were surrounded by nuns, dressed in full nun regalia, who were our teachers, principals and tormentors.
This is why The Keepers on Netflix is so captivating to those of us who lived in that time. A 26 year old nun named Sister Cathy Chesnik was found murdered in Baltimore back in 1969 and the case went cold. Her head was bashed in, her car was found near her apartment, her body had been moved, an abuse victim was allegedly taken to her body as a warning. It's all here. Except it really is true.
Who killed Sister Cathy? This is what this fascinating 7 part documentary is all about. The Catholic all girls high school called Keough was rife with sexual abuse of young girls by a a Father Joseph Maskell, who served as Principal of the school. Sister Cathy had taught at the school and the implication was she knew of the abuse by Fr Maskell and may have murdered to keep her quiet. Or not.
Some of the women who attended the school in the late 60's and early 70's decided they had to figure this mystery out because it was obvious the Baltimore cops, the Baltimore DA or the Archdiocese arent going to tell you anything.
The Keepers doesnt necessarily stay on the road it starts out on. You will be disgusted with the Archdiocese moving a pedophile like Maskell around to keep him from blowing the lid off a brewing scandal. You will be brought to lows as you listen to these former Keough students all now in their 60's talk of their abuse in graphic detail. You will cringe not knowing what happened to people who feature prominently in the story. It really is Making A Murderer 2.
Perhaps it may be more in my wheelhouse because of the characters involved are basically my life from age 5 to 17. Priests, Nuns, Jesuits, brainwashed Catholics with their heads in the sand. It's all here.
Who killed Sister Cathy? You may not get the answer in the 7 parts but you will definitely have a theory. There are suspects you dont suspect at first and then go hmmmmm, There are those you say yep he did it and then go how? You will bounce around like a ping pong ball.
The women who are digging into this very personal crime are relentless. They arent going to stop. They want to know who killed their favorite teacher and why. Better watch out whoever did it. It shows people over 60 dont have to sit in a chair and accept corruptness and lies. People over 60 can topple this institutionalized garbage if they so choose. Not all of them are zombie eyed Trump voters longing for a time when priests did get away with murder and child abuse. Longing for a time when things were simple because everyone chose to be ignorant. It was just easier that way.
It's really worth the time you invest.

Just a day or so after making the Pope take numerous showers to wash the stench of an talking orange Lucifer off his holiness, Donald F Trump went to Brussels, or as Trump calls it, a hellhole to meet with NATO leaders. You know, NATO, France, Germany, England, and a bunch of others we promised to defend back after the Rooskies took over Eastern Europe back after the Big One?
Trump, of course, feels much more comfortable being around goons and thugs like the President of Turkey, The Saudi King, Bibi Netanyahu, the Filipino murderer, Putin, Greg Gianforte. Trump wants to be them so much, a tinpot dictator body slamming journalists, murdering his opponents, shooting drug dealers, having his private security creeps beat up pesky Belgian protesters, building walls keeping the brown people out, and beheading people on Pennsylvania Avenue. Oh what a life Donald F Trump wants to lead.
But meeting leaders who actually got more votes than their opponents is strange to a narcissistic toddler like our fearless orange pile of compost. Hey he prefers leaders who didnt get as many votes yet seized power anyway. Cuz Donald F Trump is a tough guy. A tough guy standing up for Barney Badass American who lives in a
As Trump pushed the President of Montenegro out of his fucking way because he stands behind no man named "Monte" and its all America First, the rest of the civilized world (apparently urban America and Canada and Europe) stood aghast at how this guy could make things worse each and every hour.
Trump could not even lie for once and express support for Article 5 of the NATO treaty which states an attack on one is an attack on all. Nope, his Russian masters would not stand for that and they have the tape to keep Trump in line. Hey dipshit, you DO know that all the European allies have sent troops to help out in Afghanistan and Iraq? Christ,our drones and planes have even friendly fired a few of them. Thats something you can look up, or have someone brief you on for 20 seconds or so before you start daydreaming again.
To stand there and call our German allies, the new leader of the free world, evil was bad enough. To tell the French President that he was "my guy" all along was a blatant lie. Hope Putin didnt hear that.
To any Europeans out there, look, most of us didnt vote for this orange hunk of dung and most of us hate his guts. Unfortunately with his Russian masters and a bunch of Republican Quislings also in his corner, we cannot do anything at this time. We are trying. Unfortunately, fucknut states like Montana (why that beauty is wasted on a band of thug supporting lamebrains is beyond me) keep throwing a wrench into the plan to rid ourselves of this national embarrassment. But we will keep trying.
In the meantime, enjoy the presence of the Best of America.
Keep showing the crowd sizes to see Former President Obama. It will make Donald F Trump very sad.
The Orange Embarrassment went overseas in the past week and last time I looked outside there wasnt any scorched landscape or zombies wandering around so I guess on the low bar that Trump has set, it was a great week.
Trump sucked off Saudi Arabia, told the Israelis he was just back from the "Middle East", got hand slapped by the Abused Wife in Chief twice and then went to the Vatican where a delighted Pope Francis got to meet the man who appointed Newt Gingrich's umpteenth mistress and third wife as an Ambassador to the Holy See. Trump met with the Pope, probably after asking who he was and make your answer less than 15 seconds, and the Pope couldnt have been happier. The Pope, a man who joked with the former President like they were on the Borscht Belt, looked like he was forced to meet with the fucking Devil himself. Oh Pope Francis, you have no idea. We Americans are a dumb sort who somehow let this overgrown child throw all the plates on the ground while Mommy and Daddy cheered and praised his uniqueness.
The Pope, as fine a Pope as Ive ever seen, gave Trump a copy of his encyclical calling for nations of the earth not to fucking destroy the earth with fossil fuels and pumping toxic materials into the water and air. Im sure Trump used the blank pages to play hangman or something but nonetheless Trump got an earful about health care and peace and all that libtard pussy shit and told the Pope, I wont forget what you said even though we all know he forgot the minute he walked out and stuffed his red tail back into his big boy pants.
But what this inhuman monster we are forced to call POTUS did to his Press Liar may give you an insight into Trumps empty soul. Sean Spicer is a miserable man. He is forced to go out and defend a pathological liar on a daily basis. He has been neutered by Melissa McCarthy. Spicer has hidden in bushes to avoid lying again. He truly looks like a man who wishes he was anyplace else but needs the gig. Basically he's all people who work for a shitheel of a boss and have to put up with it to eat. He doesnt enjoy what he does, you can tell. He's not like that hillbilly Sarah Huckabee Sanders who truly enjoys lying and being an openly disdainful Jezebel.
Spicer is a devout (except for that lying part) Roman Catholic who got drug around by the nose on the overseas Scorch the Earth Tour 2017. But Spicer went along for one reason. To meet the Pope. I mean come on, I retired from Catholicism 45 years ago (the pension sucks and so does the installed guilt), but if I got a chance to meet the Pope, fuck yeah!! Donald Trump, a truly disgusting man who thinks Jesus H Christ was a snowflake who needed a haircut and is still trying to call Pontius Pilate to congratulate him on the great job he is doing, refused to let Spicer meet the Pope because he'd rather drag himself and his dreadful Omen like family in for photo ops. And as you can tell, the Pope was thrilled to meet the dastardly Donald's Tribe of Villains.
Yes, Donald Trump, an orange glob of cowplop, wouldnt let his main liar have even a taste of his dream. And in being the total prick he was born as, Donald Trump, an orange pile of ooze, made the press actually feel sorry for Spicer.
So now its up to you Sean. Spit in this fuckers face and either quit, or come out and tell the truth. It would be better than meeting the Pope. In fact if you do that, the Pope may come to meet you.
Donald Trump is a non human immoral lunatic.
Pax Christi y'all!

There arent many 13 year old kids I'd pay money to watch do anything. Oh there are exceptions, I mean Im sure a 13 year old Michael Jackson was pretty damn talented. I do pay for Netflix which means I sort of pay to watch 13 year old Millie Bobby Brown do her thing on Stranger Things and I would definitely pay to watch a 13 year old Barron Trump kick his old man in the balls, sometime in 2019.
Joey Alexander is his name. He's 13. He's from Bali in Indonesia. He was discovered by Wynton Marsalis or Herbie Hancock or some other jazz legend playing the piano by ear. Wow, can this kid play.
Theolonius Monk or John Coltrane can be very difficult to interpret, but this kid does it. The Joey Alexander Trio opened a concert last night here in Omaha with Monk's "Epistrophy", a song that goes all over the place, from sounding just like three musicians making noise to a grooving jazz number and then back to the noise. It really is something that non jazz fans might give up on, but to stick with it is ultimately rewarding. Joey and his two fellow members, bassist Alexander Claffy and drummer extraordinaire Willie Jones III, also tackled Coltrane, gospel songs and original compositions written by the wunderkind. It was a magical evening watching a boy genius and a couple of adult musicians at the top of their game.
Sitting so close to the stage is really the only way to go at jazz concerts. To see the facial expressions and the improv that jazz demands up close cannot be beat. The drumming of Jones was so fascinating to watch. I mean the man had all four extremities going in all directions at once, Whisk drumming with his left hand, keeping rhythm with his right, kicking the bass drum with his right foot and cracking the cymbals with his left foot, Jones may have been the most amazing drummer I have ever seen. Claffy played the upright bass with an intensity that made him shed his sport coat almost immediately and visibly sweat right thru his shirt. They both were fantastic.
But Joey. With an awkward stage presence to go along with the brilliant piano playing, you could not stop realizing this kid is only 13. The brilliant playing, then the stooped over shy banter of a child speaking to a crowd of people put you into discovery mode that you may have been witnessing the start of a legendary career. When he was pounding the ivories, he often stood while playing and made eye contact with his band mates and smiled, kind of like a damn this is fun look.
Yeah Joey. It was fun. Thanks

Whoever the the first Republican Senator to stand up and exclaim "This Trump guy is a disaster" and calls for his firing will be famous. Oh not among the base of cultists and nitwits that make up that Republican base, but among the sane people who right now hate every fucking Republican member of Congress.
Watch out for this guy, America. His name is Ben Sasse (Weirdo-Ne) and he doesnt much like the orange blob of espionage in the White House. He didnt like him back in the summer of 2016, didnt much like him in the fall of 2016, and doesnt much like him now. Sasse took a lot of shit from the angry white rubes of his home state back in the good old days when Hillary was going to kick Trump's ass. Never gonna vote for him again, oughta be recalled blah blah blah. Yeah right.
Sasse has written a book about how to raise yer kiddies to grow up and be just like him and he's pimping it like Huggy Bear on a Friday night in 1978. Sasse seems to think "adults" have lost control and big brats like Trump have become the norm. Sasse has been making a lot of noise for a long time about the pre-school this nation has become. And quite frankly he's right. But since Ben Sasse became a superstar with his cute sarcastic twitter account where he acts goofy and tells people #LoveYourPassion when they call him a buck toothed baboon. No it was not me who did that, I called him a stupid hot dog vendor (I saw him selling hot dogs once at a football game) but then Im not all that creative.
Sasse is weird. He drives an Uber, he sells hot dogs at football games, he once said his daughters wake up every day and pray that Obamacare is repealed. See, weird.
But Ben Sasse may be the first Republican to show the guts to say what needs to be said. And if that happens, again, watch out for this guy. Sasse has the ability to not only be a right wing kook (which he is) but also have a sense of humor, including a self deprecating wit, which 99% of conservatives lack. I find myself reading his twitter and actually finding myself saying hey he sounds like a decent guy, which by the way he isnt. And if I do that, the rest of America may also find themselves turning into Ben Sasse groupies, simply because Trump has set the bar so fucking low, anybody with a personality and a sense of phony decency may shoot to the top of the 2020 list of crazies willing to not be Trumpski.
Sasse,in pimping his book, has gone onto the national stage and really been no better than any other Republican afraid of the giant shadow of the whack job base of Republican bigots, haters, and numbskulls that block the light of facts. But if Sasse ever does form a spine, and use it, he will be a force to be reckoned with.
Look, the man is running for President in 2020. There is no doubt. So far, he is doing it very cautiously. Unable to actually stick that toe into the muck and grime that will be Republican rage thus far, he nonetheless is thinking about it. And if he does do the right thing, he will be a independent hero. But can he stand up to the scrutiny? That remains to be seen. Right now he's just another Republican hack kowtowing to a Russian operative.
Sasse is really everything Ted Cruz isnt. Harvard educated but able to play the folksy I'm just a simple Nebraska boy when in reality the guy couldnt wait to get out of that town we call Fremont. A town of anti-Hispanic clodhoppers who openly say it at the ballot box and then of course claim they aint racist. Sasse left town as soon as he graduated high school and ran off to the East Coast for the next 20 some years before coming back to Nebraska to take a job running a small religious college for just enough time to make people think yeah he's our Ben again and run for Senate, kicking some limp noodled Democrat offered up as a human sacrifice. Christ, Ben was so confident he'd return to his beloved DC, he never even sold his condo there. Yep, Go Big Red Baby!
So when Sasse finally decides to break ranks and actually calls for Trump to be impeached, just remember, the polling told him to do it, Because Ben Sasse is just a goofy looking Elmer Gantry. Do not be fooled.

You see, we are generally a polite lot of people here in the city that just dismissed an opportunity to tell Donald Trump to go fuck himself and re-elected a nice, boring, harmless Republican woman as Mayor.. Yeah, I'm one of them who is generally polite, probably too much so (thanks mom & dad), yet I have absolutely ZERO problem with what is going on at Town Halls with these corporate stooges they call Republican House Members. Fuck them all. Oh sorry, was that too mean?
Our Representative here in the 2nd District is a smiling diminutive little Republican dipshit named Don Bacon (Double Dipper-Ne). Bacon is a former Air Force General who ran against a one term Republican turned Democrat named Brad Ashford who was as middle of the road as you can get. You could tell from the tire marks on his suits from being run over out there in the middle of the road. Ashford was well on his way to re election when the returns from the gerrymandered district I call Nebraska's version of East Berlin, Sarpy County, began to come in. Now to explain, Sarpy County is FULL of retired double dipping Air Force vets who spend 20 years at Offutt Air Force Base (thanks for your service), retire, and then get jobs in private business. Hey,I know, Ive worked with hundreds of them. And to a man or woman, they are, well how do I put this, basically fascist wannabes. They are Republican from the tips of the high and tight haircuts, to the toes of their comfortable shoes. The political offices in Sarpy County, Mayors and City Councils and law enforcement agencies all act like anyone form outside is an interloper bent on subversion and carnage. It is well known that driving in the county is something to be avoided. The Stasi , or as it is officially known as, The Sarpy County Sheriffs Department, will pull you over anytime you venture over Harrison Street into their fatherland. Yes, a little tip for tourists, Harrison Street is like Checkpoint Charlie. The only thing lacking is a wall. Sarpy County is indeed the place that gave us Representative Don Bacon (Lil General-Ne).
Bacon was running scared from Town Halls earlier in the year. He would hold "town halls" via conference call. He would hold "town halls" with only invited guests. He would say no public Town Halls because he was afraid of "outside agitators". He also claimed the "outside agitators" were paid by George Soros or Karl Marx or somebody. Bacon is indeed an idiot used to telling boot strappers what to do and having them do it no questions asked. This whole democracy thing is new to Don Bacon.
But Bacon could hide no more. He would put his stupidity out there for all to view. And he held "Town Halls" publicly, In safe areas. In the white sections of town, in the middle of the day, on weekdays, with little notice. Yet some still showed up to express their dissatisfaction with the Little General.
Yesterday, Don Bacon held a town hall in a little town called Bennington. Bennington is hard to find, a bit far to drive to and of course, full of folks fleeing the minorities that live in Omaha. Friendlies.
Sorry, Don, but the friendlies werent enough to toadie to you and your staff of doughboys. "Lies!" was the main shout that Bacon heard as he lied. Bacon called the ACHA a "rescue mission" to save health care. I sure hope General Don didnt general that way. We are going to rescue you by taking away any security you may need, Not a great way to general, General. Bacon went to the moldy talking points of "High risk pools" and "tax breaks" amid the shouts and the booing. There ya go, General, you aint no General anymore. The troops dont like you and arent going to snap to.
Bacon saw no problem with the firing of James Comey. Hey, he had no support from anybody, including the Demoncrats. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Bacon insisted there were no "red flags" involving Russia and Trump. He did concede that Russia was "trying to throw gasoline on our partisan divide.” Yeah thats it, Don, Russia is only interested in dividing us. Look, dumbfuck, we dont need their help. Trump provides more than enough gas for that fire. Bacon continued to pause and sigh and act like it was him being the victim while people in the crowd, many of whom would be out in the cold with no health insurance, would express their displeasure with his Trump ass kissing.
But did the rocking Town Hall experience make Bacon think? Nope....."It wasn’t pleasant, but it does embolden me,”.Great...it emboldens him to keep bringing the bullshit forward.
Bacon is vulnerable in 2018. He's as worthless a Rep as there can be. If the freedom lovers can overcome the zombies of
The answer depends on who you are. If you are a taxpayer sucking leech its as many as you can get. If its you or me, its a big fat zero.
2nd District Democrats. Theres a chance to fry this Bacon. Get out the pan! Now!
Be nice to your Mom today. Some day, sooner than you think, she will not be around. Establish some good times to remember her while you can.
My Mom was one of the smartest women I've ever known. She had a life she loved and took full advantage of the opportunities offered. And then, in a moment of time that comes for us all, it went downhill very quickly.
I love you, Mom. I think of you every day and when I see the state of the nation nowadays, I both wish you were here to comment on it, yet know you would have been as distressed as many of us are and hopefully wherever you are, there's no squirrel haired maniac there to torment you.
Happy Mothers Day to all moms!

Even the ghost of Richard Nixon is pointing at the biggest asshole in American history. Jesus H Christ, at least Nixon knew what he was doing, or did for a while. This schlump from Queens, Donald John Trump, has no fucking clue what he's doing. Buoyed by the adoring morons whom Trump cons and holds rallies with on a monthly basis, this putz Trump thinks he's invincible. So far in a mere 109 days, this muskrat haired jackoff has fired Sally Yates for telling him no, fired Preet Bhrara for investigating him and now James Comey for holding grand juries and sniffing to close to Trumps corrupt taint.
And now, Donald Trump gets to replace the man investigating him with his own man. A man who will undoubtedly be compromised and attempt to end the obvious fact that Trump and his cronies, his family and probably his closet case veep are Russian operatives. And the Republican Senate, still holding onto this traitorous creep as a tool to make themselves and their donors rich, will approve Trump's FBI choice unanimously just to hold off the wolves. Nice going Iowa in not only electing a white nationalist to Congress but re-electing a senile drip like Chuck Grassley to oversee this clusterfuck of an investigation. Grassley, a demented old crank who has been in the Senate longer than First Lady Ivanka Trump has been alive, approves of the firing of Comey and I'm sure the appointment of some Russian speaking twit as a replacement.
But like I said, Nixon and his goons knew what he was doing by surrounding himself with professional thugs like Liddy and Segretti and John Ehrlichman and H R Haldeman and Mitchell and Bork. Nixon was ruthless and did whatever he could to not only win, but crush his opponents beyond recognition. This bunch of incompetent racists and oligarchs and dopes cant even cover up their own idiocy much less a Russian covert operation to take over the American government. Despite the worship of a minute percentage of American idiots and the collusion of the American Congress, this entire stinking administration is on shaky ground. Because the fish rots from the head and the head is a beaver haired lazy ass rich kid from Queens who has finally bitten off more than he could chew.
I mean come on, in Trump's letter to Comey he mentions the investigation that is not happening and how Comey called him three times to say its not happening and how despite the fact the investigating is not happening he's firing him anyway. Jesus, you dolt, why mention the investigation that is not happening when you fire the guy not investigating you.
This may seem dark and dreary at this time. But remember the idiots that Trump has appointed and the morons who serve as his spokespeople. This is a house of cards ready to fall. And fall it will.
This administration may be a house of cards, but they are definitely not a House Of Cards. Francis J Underwood would have pushed Kellyanne Conway in front of a Metro train and certainly have gassed a drunken Steve Bannon by now.
Bye bye motherfuckers.

Lets get this out of the way at the start. Fuck them all. With a rusty crowbar.
The House Republicans, a group of hicks and rubes and Satanists so utterly evil, voted to do what they've been saying they wanted to do for about 7 years now. They finally succeeded in making rape a pre-existing condition in the issuance of health insurance . Oh yeah that and domestic violence and C sections and depression and who knows what else. Christ just being born with a vagina is now a pre-existing condition to these misogynistic clods.
Paul Ryan, who may be an even worse human being than Donald Trump, with his shit eating grin and his blatant lying, couldnt have been more smug standing in that Rose Garden with his fellow misanthropes, most of them old white men set for life by the
Think about it. What exactly were these assholes celebrating? Well, we know that pricks like Louie Gohmert (Goober-Tx) and Steve King (Shitheel-Ia) were probably celebrating something to do with some Mexican someplace dying, but the rest? Celebrating a hollow victory in which something with the nickname "Obama" was repealed and not even replaced. Celebrating that 24-30 million of their fellow citizens, a shitload of whom let their racism win out over their common sense and voted for these total pricks, will lose health insurance coverage because the fucking premiums will be unaffordable. Yep, premiums will plunge because $0 is sure as hell less than $130,000. Celebrating the gigantic tax cut for the wealthiest Americans, which some would argue what this was really about anyway. An average tax cut of $200K while the cost is 24-30 million people losing health insurance coverage. Hope its worth it J Simpleton Douchebag the Fourth. Get that yacht cleaned up nice and shiny for the mandatory Summer Shindig with your favorite Congressman.
Yesterday was one of the most disgraceful votes ever made in American history. A House full of heartless fucks, including a lot of Republican women, voted for this cruel bill, In fact Representative Martha McSally (Whack Job-Az) who urged her fellow Scrooges to "do this fucking thing" was one of them. I bet she's a hoot at the Arizona Vote Against Your Own Interests Early Bird Special Prayer Brunch.
Ok fine, I know this House bill is not the law of the land. Yet. But the celebratory atmosphere of these crazy shitheads, led by a crude version of a human being in the Rose Garden of the White House, the beer drinking at the Capitol, the fact that if this bill gets through the Turtle led Senate, and those miserable bastards arent any better, it goes to the states where madman Governors like Scott Walker (Chinless-Wi) or Sam Brownback (Disaster Re-Elected-KS) or Pete Ricketts (Trust Fund Kid-Ne) could get the ball rolling to gut even more of the "greatest health care system in the world" (puke) by restoring lifetime caps, or whatever else big insurance wants. Really? I dont want a proven economic illiterate like Brownback (Re-Elected-KS) or a grinning football head like Ricketts (Daddy I Need More Money-Ne) being in charge of anything that means life or death to people.
Trump said he wouldnt touch Medicaid. Yet, bye bye Medicaid so his rich buddies would get even more money at tax time. Yeah yeah I know Trump is a pathological liar, and I wouldnt vote for him if he ran against Casey Anthony (Child Killer-Fl), but this is really something else. You are talking about Medicaid here. The very lifeblood of poor Americans not yet bankrupted or ignored into death by the "Greatest health care system in the world" (vomit). The Medicaid fund. under the guise of that failed oldie "High Risk Pools", is basically dead. It's $200 billion short by early estimates. Chrissakes, the Republican shitheels didnt even wait for a CBO study before passing this nonsense. They dont believe in science, compassion or apparently math.
The top 12 states in having a population of people with pre-existing conditions ALL voted for the Creep In Chief. The Schadenfreude in me is very happy. But the human empathy I was fortunately born with and learned from my parents wins out here. Even people who voted for a vulgar barroom bully like Trump deserve to live a decent life. And even if they continue to support a tiny fingered thin skinned Russian operative like Trump just because he upsets "libtards" like me, they dont deserve this. And even when they blame the Democrats because their pre-existing racism, sexism, homophobia has kicked in, they dont deserve this.
The "Greatest health care system in the word" myth is a fucking joke told to you by politicians lying through their teeth to keep getting donations from the insurance industry and hospitals and medical supply companies. The Pathological Liar in Chief even thinks our system sucks.
Hell he proved the broken clock is right twice a day theory just yesterday. Watch.
There ya have it. The House is full of miscreants and morons. The Presidency is full of grifters and looters. The Senate is full of glorified House hicks with better suits.
But Australia. Thats where its at! Hey, the Broken Clock in Chief said so. Your move, Trump voters.

There are still some really smart people left in this world. They get sick of being smarter than everybody else and eventually either quit, kill themselves or fade into being hacks because what the fuck, why fight the stupidity and greed any longer.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony last night on HBO is exactly what I'm talking about. Because I wasnt going to watch the White House Correspondence Dinner due to the fact it was this hackneyed crapfest that made an orange glob of humorless goo decide to run for President because a black man made fun of him. And I wasnt going to watch the latest scream for attention by our Toddler In Chief in front of a bunch of Pennsylvania rubes who apparently do not know Hillary Clinton has faded into oblivion. So it was the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. At least I'd get a Pearl Jam fix once Eddie Vedder stopped talking.
But what I got was a reminder of the genius and gift to those of us who despise authority that is David Letterman. Decked out in a suit and a beard that wold make Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill proud, Dave gave a speech inducting Pearl Jam into the Hall that made me long for the days of the anarchist he was, and apparently still is. Even while praising Pearl Jam, he never once let them off the hook with his biting humor in regards to their inability to keep drummers in their early days and the losing fight they launched against Ticketmaster. Who else in one sentence can call Ticketmaster beady eyed weasels AND remind Eddie Vedder, hey dude, you lost and accomplished nothing.
But when Dave was ready to read a moving letter from Eddie to his son, Harry, and held up the guitar that his kid had been given, and then showed that picture of his son, and a picture of a middle schooler lighting up a smoke popped up, who the hell didn't not only howl, but also be sad that this genius is no longer making the comfortable uncomfortable on late night television.
I love Pearl Jam as they are one of the 10 greatest rock bands that has ever existed and certainly one of the top 5 American bands ever, but what I found out I loved even more was David Letterman.
Dave, I wish you well, keep that beard, and please some day come back as an interviewer on a news channel. You were the only one who ever held these asshole blowhard politicians and Fox News creeps accountable for their bullshit.
Has it really been 100 days since America was taken over by stupidity? I wonder what Dave would say.
Watch his speech here.

Per Donald Trump, Republican breast cancer advocate Karen Handel (Loony-Ga) came in with a big "win" over 30 year old nerd Democrat Jon Ossoff by getting 18% of the vote to his 48% of the vote. Trump of course is an illiterate moron that 3 million less voters elected to the Presidency of these United States last November because he was white. And now, since Trump has proven to be a lying. lazy, chubby, golfing, crude man child the rest of America has apparently taken the word lazy and set it aside. At least for now.
Jon Ossoff ran in a special election for the U.S. House of Reprehensibles in Georgia's 6th district last night and ran 30 points ahead of his nearest challenger, a truly horrible woman named Karen Handel. Yet to Trump, who didnt even support Handel cuz she's a broad or something, he did support the twist and she "won" bigley.
Now because Georgia, as much of the South, has this weirdo procedure where if the winner does not get 50% of the vote, we get a run off election in about 2 months time. I gather this is so the powers that be in Georgia, white men, can keep those pesky libtards or blacks or anyone not a conservative white con artist out of office by coming together to keep guys like Ossoff below 50%.
This will be ugly. Not only will the Republicans lie, cheat, steal and spend as much money as it takes to smear Ossoff as a "globalist", they will lie, cheat and steal and spend as much money as it takes to make Karen Handel the second coming of fucking Newt Gingrich, who held this seat through 3 wives and who knows how many mistresses until his hypocrisy brought him down and he turned to writing books about how the Confederacy should have won the War of Northern Aggression.
Now about Karen Handel (Cancer Advocate-Ga). This woman is a former Georgia Secretary of State, though why states have that worthless office is beyond me. Oh yeah, I know now, its so they can suppress the votes of blacks and browns and snowflakes. And that's what Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel (Quitter-Ga) did, along with eliminating any paper trails for electronic voting machines and purged the voting rolls forcing many to re-register and "prove" they were citizens. Gee, I wonder what the racial numbers were on that purge?
But what everyone remembers about this awful person is the Susan B Komen debacle. While a national official for the Komen organization, a widely known breast cancer organization looking for "The Cure", Komen made it her mission to defund Planned Parenthood from any Komen funds because of that whole abortion bullshit. No more money for cancer screenings for you, Trampy, cuz you'll probably just get a pap smear and then go over to the Planned Parenthood abortion room and get one of those later. Now we all know that Planned Parenthood is just like Hitler because it gasses babies and takes over states with its mansion like abortion mills. But what makes the Susan B Komen Race For The Cure any better? Huh? God this country is just plain goofy sometimes. Thanks
Handel resigned from her veep duties over this issue. But the fact the Komen organization would hire a person like this made me stop running in the Cure races. That, and the fact I busted my leg and got fat. But still, hiring a smarmy little fuck like Handel shows poor judgement period. The voters of Georgia's 6th District must not show that poor judgement either. Damn, Georgians, you hired a guy named Newt for years and then replaced him with a corrupt insider trading asshole named Tom Price who Trump hired to starve the poor into oblivion, which Price will do gladly as long as he can figure a way to make a buck out of it.
The Georgia House race, in two months for chrissakes, is a must. Two months is plenty of time for the bullshit that will come out of the deep coffers of the Republican PACS and party to turn Jon Ossoff into a savage Jew who will eat your children and take away your guns. Oh its gonna happen. "Globalist" is the new Jewish slur. Expect to hear that one coming out of PACS that have Pepi the Frog as a symbol.
Fight fire with fire folks. Dont fall asleep here. The way to impeach the Toddler In Chief and his whole Russian spy network of an administration is to win the House back in 2018. We lost in Kansas, allowing a math moron like Trump to crow, but we cannot lose here or in Montana. We must fire the first shots and by sending Ossoff to Congress is one helluva shot. You know, like Trumps golf shots. I hear he shot an 18 last week.
Lets all help. Elect Jon Ossoff in Georgia. Ya like folk singers from Montana? Me too.

Christ I dont know if the Pulitzer Committee got cases of Chardonnay from an anonymous source over the last few weeks but they must have been blasted out of their minds for awarding Peggy Noonan a Pulitzer Prize for drunk typing or commentary or whatever the fuck it is she does.
Peggy dear, who was responsible for those baffling ramblings that came out of the mouth of Reagan during his Reign of Is He Senile, now drunk comments for the Wall Street Urinal (a little Rush humor for ya there lol) and the wild and crazy creeps who run that rag must be as ecstatic as if another hedge fund guy caused old guys to kill themselves by closing down their livelihood and selling the parts.
Giving a Pulitzer for commentary to a condescending Mother Superior wanna be like Sister Mary Nooners is like giving out a Pulitzer for journalism to Russian Bots spreading their pro Trump bullshit. Which after this announcement , may be next.
Noonan, who for some reason is continually asked to come on television news panels to hem and haw and look down her nose at others, writes some of the most nonsensical bullshit you've never read. Reading a Countess Peggy column is an exercise in futility. Chrissakes she makes Maureen Dowd seem normal. To get past the first paragraph of a Queen Peggy commentary is well, impossible. To say you have is to lie.
I admit I have no fucking idea what motivates her, other than a scotch and water. She gets all hot and bothered over the stupidest shit. In the age of Trump, the vulgar side of politics she's always pretended to disdain, she becomes the wise old soothsayer who imagines a "sane" Donald Trump and then pretends it's real. A sane Donald Trump? Really Peggers?
Noonan once became upset over a group of oversensitive Columbia University students who saw sexism and racism in old poems. Imagine that? Dame Noonan decided to respond to the bunch of surly students lecturing them that old poems are great and they, the cantankerous coeds, are spoiled brats. Well Sister Groucho, your gin stained view of the world is no less valuable than that of a group of easily offended scholars.
She wrote, " I won’t name the four undergraduate authors, because 30 years from now their children will be on Google, and because everyone in their 20s has the right to be an idiot."
She forgot to add because everyone in their 60's has the right to be an idiot too.
Congrats, Duchess Pegs, on your Pulitzer. It's the modern day equivalent of the Nobel Committee giving a Peace Prize to a war criminal named Henry Kissinger. I'd buy you the drinks, but I dont have that much money.

Yeah Bill O'Reilly returned the favor. Told his fossilized viewers what a good week Donald Trump had and then it slip on why exactly he and his octogenarian viewers think Trump had a"good week". Cuz the "Trump haters" are frustrated. Yowza, when the libflakes and the snowtards are "frustrated" then no matter what Trump and his handlers did, however horrible, then it must be good. As these couch bound bitters watch their hero, he of the gropey hands and lawsuit losses, carry on about his buddy, and the fires of hell lap at their support stockings, well at least as they fade into oblivion they know the cucks and the blacks are worse off and that's good. But we are the haters.
Donald Trumpski got on the horn on Thursday, or rather one of his mouthpieces did cuz he was partaaaaying with the Chinese guy, and warned his Russian bosses that he was going to send about a billion dollars worth of missiles into the air and blow up an airfield so you may want to tell your Syrian goons to head to the hookah bar for a few hours. And then Trump sent 60 Tomahawks off to blow shit up. Nothing helps a 34% approval rating like an act of war to rally dumb Americans behind you. Raytheon, the maker of these missiles, wishes to thank you for the stock uptick and yes we will get right on replacing those 60 missiles and oh yeah the price is higher now due to the fact our workers actually expect to be paid to do their patriotic duty.
So when the missiles hit what was an abandoned airfield and went boom, all of media went oh my gawwwwwwwwwd, ratings! Again they couldnt wait to exclaim how cool missile attacks are and how Donald Trump, man child leader, suddenly became "President". You know, like that night he gave a speech to that band of thieves in Congress and somehow managed to not have his zipper down and vomit on Paul Ryan and he was judged to have become "President". The media, sitting on a restrained longing to love this Toddler in Chief, cannot wait to declare Trump's actions legitimate, strong, presidential, uhhhh normal. He might come on out network, ohhhhh Donald.This is how they reach out to flyover country, sitting at home watching Sean Hannity and blaming the black guy. You know Hannity, the man who crapped on Obama's want to bomb the shit out of Syria back in 2013,presumably without calling in a heads up to Putin and Assad. But now that his reach around buddy Trump has done it, those 2013 tweets are being washed away and the screen grabs are the far left's attempt to smear his flat head.
Donald Trump had a good week?
Mitch McConnell, as disgusting of an American as Paul Ryan, had to force through a Supreme Court nominee by changing ancient rules of the Senate that had survived every shitty moment in American history. The "nuclear option". Oh boy this sounds good. McConnell, after being able to only muster three cowardly Democrats from deep red states to vote for this thief of a nominee, took the road to Armageddon and nuked the worlds oldest body of lawmakers. You know, the good body of statesmen and heroes that were a counter measure to that group of hicks and rubes in the House of Representatives. Well no more thanks to a chinless cracker from Kentucky with a warped sense of history. The United States Senate, full of "statesmen" like John Cornyn (Liar-Tx) and Ted Cruz (Alien-Canada) has become just another group of red state dipshits with nice suits bought by special interests and a gift for gab just one step over their inarticulate voters.
Neil Gorsuch represents a "good week" for Trump. This folksy bullshit artist hemmed and hawed his way through his hearings by saying virtually nothing. Ah shucks Senator, I dont really know the answer to that very good question. Oh gee, Senator, I must have been playing with my cutesy wife and little girls that day and did you notice the black chick sitting behind me which of course means the blacks all love me.
Well maybe not all of them, Neil. Alphonse Maddin probably isnt too fond of you. You see, Neil, if you can somehow remember that case you ruled on in between playing tiddlywinks with the kiddies or going to the rodeo to bust sheep, you ruled that Corporate America, who are just like people, could fire Mr.Maddin for saving his own life and perhaps the lives of others. You may recall that Alphonse Maddin, a truck driver, a regular guy that the Republicans are looking out for, found his brakes were frozen due to the below freezing temperature. So Maddin called in his problem to his employer, a person called TransAm for help. Hey, Alphonse, said Mr.TransAm help is on the way, stay put. So he stayed put for about two hours until he began to fucking freeze to death. He called this person, TransAm, again. Stay put said TransAm. But Maddin couldnt feel his feet and his legs and his body so he did what anybody would do. He got out of the truck, unhitched the trailer, and drove the truck to a warm place where he could continue being alive.
So for this obvious transgression, Mister TransAm, a person, fired Alphonse Maddin for abandoning his trailer. Maddin filed a complaint with OSHA, a government agency the Republicans think is unnecessary cuz safety is so much for pussies. The complaint was upheld and Mister TransAm, an American citizen, sued and went to the Appeals Court where on Neil Gorsuch sat, presumably with his cute kids bouncing on his lap. The court upheld the complaint by a 2-1 margin.
Guess who the one was? Yep it was everybody's favorite Daddy Judge, Neil Gorsuch. Neil apparently thought that Alphonse Maddin, a second class American citizen, was in no way justified in saving his own life and not driving that frozen braked truck on the public roads and perhaps killing other second class American citizens. First class American citizen, TransAm, was right to shitcan Alphonze Maddin. Yep, Neil Gorsuch thinks Corporate America, a citizen, trumps everyone else.
So for that I say fuck Neil Gorsuch. No not fuck him as a SCOTUS life member. I'm sure he will be just a terrible as I think. Fuck him as an American citizen. Fuck him as a person. Fuck him as a human being. He'll fit right in with this bunch.
Good week for Il Douche' and as usual a bad week for the rest of the world.

"I dont think Bill did anything wrong". That's the opinion of the Pussy Grabber In Chief regarding the old lecherous Bill O'Reilly and his numerous sexual harassment lawsuits settled to the tune of $13 million.
Well of course he doesnt think Billo did anything wrong other than settle because Trump never settles any lawsuits either. Wait, what? The Fraud in Chief settled his $25 million Trump University lawsuit for grifting morons out of their money over the years? Wow, Russian Stooge In Chief, you're $12 million ahead of that creepy old Lothario. At least Billo never started his own University which would have consisted of nothing but grad assistants ready to get groped by the Fox News Romeo in his office.
Bill O'Reilly is that middle school teacher who thinks he's cool, but is actually an asshole and then brags that his students loved him while the students all say "seen that asshole O'Reilly lately? He's melting and he's still the biggest prick I ever dealt with".
O'Reilly is the kind of doughy disco jerk who went to clubs in the 70's, opened his shirt to his pot belly, hit on every chick in the joint, and went home alone. Oh yeah, O'Reilly eventually bullied his way into TV news, hit on the dopey interns by promising them airtime, and fooled dumb people into saying things like "yeah he tells it like it is", you know, the same idiots who said the same shit about another bullying blowhard named Donald Trump.
I mean these two skirt chasers belong together. Aging has-beens bragging to each other about alleged past conquests while sitting in the front row at Yankee Stadium rooting for the Evil Empire. Christ, O'Reilly perceives himself as so cool he does a one finger wave and Trump is two sections late. But in reality, these two pitiful playboys long for what they will never have. Acceptance. Acceptance by the very people they hammer either on Twitter in Trump's case or in Billo's case his nightly old man yells at cloud segment he calls "Talking Points".
Rosie is a pig. Meryl is overrated. Kanye is bad. The Dixie Chicks are dumb. Bryan Cranston is bad. Beyonce is a diva.
When they wont accept you you criticize them as beneath you. Look, only dummies fall for that. To be recognized by the very celebrities you allegedly despise would give both of these limp dicks a rager.These two juvenile delinquents need to be brought down to earth.
Trump needs to be impeached at the very least and his wild and crazy buddy O'Reilly needs to be fired from his cranky old man show.
God how I wish for the return of the man who brought them both down from their imaginary throne. David Letterman.

Well that clusterfuck is over. The Republicans repealed Obamacare 60 plus times when they knew Obama was President and it wouldn't ever matter, thus being able to cater to their ignorant constituents who didn't know Obamacare from the Affordable Care Act.
Well those days are over you yellow bellies because when given the chance to actually repeal an actual plan and replace with nothing but tax cuts for their
The Republican House members, led by a Ayn Rand loving loathsome hater like Paul Ryan (Charlatan-WI), couldn't get their shit together to do something they'd done dozens of times because some of them got all baffled by that "replace" part.
Some of the rubes in the House thought replacing the Obamacare with anything was just too generous to humanity. These "Freedom Caucus" members, a gang of misanthropes so utterly nasty they cannot comprehend the suffering of anyone other than rich white males, could not stand any health care plan that covered virtually anything. Those broads, the ones that had been rejecting them for years, dont need no mammograms or maternity coverage. The poor are poor because they are lazy and shiftless and its better off if they just die anyway. This Freedom Caucus was not to be moved off their lonely hill where they think Donald Trump is a philanthropist. The Freedom Caucus consists of 30 of the whitest men you would ever meet. They alone were ready to fuck this replacement part up in the name of "freedom". Thanks, Freedom Caucus. You are all still complete assholes though.
When you take out that bunch of despicable creeps, you are left with the rest of the Republicans. You know, the ones who wanted to "replace" the ACA (thats Obamacare,idiots) with the
Now all of that is 100% true. Sorry, fellow Democrats, but for once the Republicans are telling the truth. It would lower premiums for most people because whatever you pay now is definitely higher than $0 which is what you'd pay after Trump Care passed because you couldn't afford to buy insurance. It would provider you with a choice. The choice to not afford this plan or not afford that plan, your choice. If you choose to not buy a plan, well then lah dee dah, freedom! Lower costs from providers? You betcha! Cuz not going to the doctor because you cant afford it is free! See, what a plan! The free unicorn? Just get hooked on the black market opiates and voila! Unicorn!
The Democrats and the Freedom Caucus kicked Trump right in the ass today. The American people kicked that whiny toddler right in the ass today too. Donald Trump is a loser. He is ill prepared and quite frankly in over his head. Just quit Donnie!
With the defeat of Trump Care today perhaps we can now get back to the important stuff. Like getting to the bottom of how this rancid administration ran the campaign against Hillary. How involved were these Russian stooges with the actual Russians? How far up Putin's ass is Trump? How many of this administration of Russian lackeys will actually be in jail in the years to come?
These are the important questions. When your main line of defense is a birdbrain named Devin Nunes (Out of his League-CA) you are in deep trouble. When aforementioned birdbrain gets information and runs off to tattle to the Pigeon In Chief you know the bloodhounds are getting close. Donald Trump may get to the point that whatever tapes Putin has are the least of his problems.
What's your next move, Comrade Donald?

The gag reflex is working overtime listening to the cornpone judge claim he's just a simple country lawyer with no gosh darn opinions on much of anything. Denver Judge Neil Gorsuch, the next SCOTUS judge nominee willing to turn the country into a hateful wasteland, is knocking softballs out of the park as Republican Judiciary Committee members ask him if he's a Nazi or anything like those Demoncrats say he is.
Now the fact remains Gorsuch should not even be sitting there. Surrounded by his loving adoring gazing wife and the strategically placed black woman, Mary Elizabeth Taylor, a sort of Omarosa Lite Gorsuch is aw shucksing his way to the inevitable lifetime seat confirmation he stole from Barack Obama and Merrick Garland. Oh he will be confirmed, because the hillbillies voted for enough Republicans to make it inevitable. That and the fact the Democrats are pussies.
Trump has obviously sold this seat to the various right wing groups who are bankrolling this farce. Trump wouldnt know a Supreme Court decision from a Maury Povich DNA test much less know anything about Neil Gorsuch, who may as well have a Federalist Society tattoo on his forehead. When the fainting couch fan, Lindsey Graham, asked Gorsuch what he wold have done had Trump demanded he vote to overturn Roe V Wade Gorsuch puffed up the phony indignation and proclaimed Why Suh, I would have gotten up and walked right out that door. Excuse me while I gag. Yeah sure, Neil. Besides the fact Trump thinks Roe V Wade is the name of one of his doormen, the thought of that scenario is laughable. Trump never asked anything of the kind of a guy like Gorsuch. Gorsuch was the name given him by The Heritage Foundation and had Rubio or Cruz or Santorum somehow won the White House, Gorsuch would still have been the guy.
Look, Gorsuch is as forgetful a nominee as I can ever remember with all his gee willikers surprise at some of the questions. Diane Feinstein nailed him in his sneaky advisement of the Cheney DOJ on how to circumvent laws against torture but Gorsuch bobbed and weaved with his gee maam I was just one voice in a crowded room and I'd really have to look at my notes to see what I advised. Yeah Im pretty sure I'd remember if I told some sick fuck like Cheney that plucking the fingernails out of suspects was a-ok with me.
Sheldon Whitehouse asked Gorsuch about the $10 million in Citizens United money that is backing this thieving nomination. Gorsuch has no idea what it is in fact claimed "It is what it is". Gee ok there, Judge Denial.
My gawd, the things Gorsuch claims to not know would disqualify a simple law clerk from doing anything other than running to Starbucks to get the latte's. Gorsuch's feigned ignorance is so infuriating, or should be, to anyone with even a 6th grade level of understanding the consequences of confirming this phony Chauncey Gardner to the Supreme Court.
Al Franken knows absurdity. And Al Franken made this statement after Gorsuch attempted to justify his vote to allow a company to fire a truck driver who refused to put his own life and others in danger by driving a truck with frozen brakes and refusing to sit in the cab and freeze to death.
"It is absurd to say that this company was within its rights to fire him because he made a choice not to—of possibly dying by freezing to death or causing other people to die because he was driving an unsafe vehicle. That's absurd. Now I had a career in identifying absurdity, and I know it when I see it."
Are you absurd, Neil Gorsuch, or are you just another of the 6th grade level thinking miscreants running around this putrid administration?
I think we know.
