A common disease of the right

Every once in a while I read something that makes me feel good, because I can honestly say I got there first, and when I see such a thing I feel I owe it to me reader or readers to point this out. Case in point, these observations from Josh Marshall regarding Trump: Going on […]

Trump plays half dimensional chess

This is all over the internet I guess, but for my purposes this description, from the Palmer report, will do. At around 10:00am eastern time, Trump posted a factually questionable three-part tweet about Corker: “Senator Bob Corker “begged” me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said “NO” and he dropped out (said he […]

When he’s right, he’s right

As human beings, it’s incumbent upon us to recognize our common humanity. That means, for instance, that any human, no matter how reptilian he or she might be, must be recognized as a fellow human. Among other things we must recognize that we must listen to what each of our fellow humans has to say, […]

Great Advice, Steve!

By now, anyone who is not an idiot, knows that Trump is an idiot. (In fact, it’s the first word that pops into the heads of most Americans when you mention Donald Trump) But lest you think that his advisers might outshine him so far as rationality or common sense is concerned, think again. Consider […]

Nose deep in the big muddy

We all know about stopped clocks. If they can be right twice a day, it stands to reason that Donald Trump can be right once in his life, which actually happened when he opined that we should get the hell out of Afghanistan. It also stands to reason that this rare occurrence couldn’t last, and […]

A sick puppy

The mainstream media are finally beginning to say out loud what so many of them have recognized since before the election: that Donald Trump is a sick puppy. Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein tweeted last week that “important Republicans” and higher ups in the intelligence and military communities had been “increasingly saying in private that @realDonaldTrump […]

Tony, we hardly knew ye

This is quite depressing. See the title of this post? I googled the phrase, “we hardly knew ye”, just to make sure I had it right, and what do I find but that lots of other people have already come up with it. The fact is, I’m sitting here on a porch overlooking Lake Pauline […]

Hang in there, Jeff

Life is funny. If, a year ago, you had told me that someday Jefferson Beauregard Sessions would be attorney general; that he’d be under pressure to resign, but that I wouldn’t want him to resign, I’d have questioned your sanity. Yet here we are. Trump’s new golden boy has allowed as if it sure does […]

Watergate Memories

There have been a lot of Watergate comparisons lately, and I’m going to join in. One thing I haven’t seen noted, although I don’t see everything, is the fact that both Watergate and Russiagate are election related scandals, each driven by the desire to steal an election. The difference between them is that Watergate was […]

More news from the Department of Redundancy Department

Who would have thought it? A new study has turned up some startling findings that only those who were otherwise paying attention the past 49 years could have predicted. It turns out most of those Trump voters were not suffering from economic angst. They’re just bigots. Or, how can I say it? Oh! Deplorables! On […]
