Dear Mike Pence: Shut The Flaming Hell Up
Mike Pence thinks he lives in God’s grace. To a degree, he’s right. He’s living in something’s grace because we all still think of him as something other than a traitor! Make no mistake: Mike Pence is every bit the traitor Donald Trump is. And Donald Trump is, first and foremost a traitor. But then,…
There Can’t BE A “Republican Party” Anymore
How awful does someone have to be before our news media decides they’re awful? How many lies did Donald Trump have to tell before the press had no choice but to call Trump a “liar”? Is giving credence to criminal behavior really “journalism”? I just watched a segment on MSNBC where the conversation asked “what…
Kevin McCarthy: Speaker Of The House & Treason’s Poster Boy
Wanna talk Rogue’s Gallery? Let’s talk Republican Speakers of The House. From Newt Gingrich (he the GOP’s culture war against the rest of us) to Denny Hastert (convicted pederast) to Paul Ryan (record breaking ineptitude), Republican Speakers have been disastrous for America. Kevin McCarthy kicks that up a whole bunch of notches. As far as…
You Can’t View Extraordinary Times Through An Ordinary Lens
I keep trying to put my finger on this strange feeling I get every time I turn on cable news. It’s like the news media – even as they report the biggest story ever – fail to grasp how big the story is. A patch of grass fascinates them. Too bad it’s in the middle…
Kevin McCarthy CAN’T Be Speaker Because He’s A TRAITOR!
Our news media – as always – remains light years behind the curve on the biggest story any of them will ever cover. Unfortunately for us, it’s also the same story we are living through. You’d think a story about treason would inspire journalists to heights of greatness. Alas, Donald Trump befuddles them and always…
Where Do Republicans Go From Here? Nowhere
The GOP knew from the jump that Trump was Putin’s chump.
Trump Was Hoarding America’s Secrets Because He’s A Traitor
The instant Donald Trump stopped being POTUS, he lost all right to have our secrets in his possession. That’s a stone cold fact. That he took some of our most secret secrets with him to Mar a Lago? That was and is a crime even as he was doing it. It hasn’t stopped being a…
Karma Comes Calling For Mitch McConnell
You might have missed it. The shift was subtle. Karma’s come for Mitch McConnell. When President Biden signs the “Inflation Reduction Act” into law, the majority of Americans will have cause to celebrate. Republicans will, too. They just won’t admit it. The climate doesn’t care about anyone’s politics. The person who’ll celebrate least is Senate…
Never Mind A Poll’s Results, What Did The Poll Actually Poll?
Poll takers will tell you that their polls are mere snapshots of a moment in time. A photo is the perfect metaphor for an opinion poll. What is any picture really a picture of? We assume, when the news punditry drops poll numbers about us, that they’re presenting an accurate snapshot. But, that assumes a…
The Perils Of Treasonitis
“Treason”, like “Nazi”, is one of “those” words. At least, it used to be. Back when the Trump era first started, it was kinda cute how people on the left dared themselves to throw down the word “Nazi” or “fascist” to describe Donald Trump, his inner circle and increasingly the entire Republican Party. We all…
