About that Trump “dam?” The White House is starting to look...

When things go good, they go very, very good, but when they go bad, they go horrid   Traditional Well, well, well. It took the Democrats a while, but they’ve finally figured it out. Trump’s nonstop claims of “executive privilege” have stymied congressional attempts to obtain any information at all regarding the multiple investigations and hearings into everything […]

The Dam Has Broken Part II

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step   Chinese proverb Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time   Steven Wright The old saying goes, “Ah, it seems like only yesterday,” but in this case it really freakin’ almost was! It was only a couple of days ago that I penned an article […]

The floor

Since the first time that Donald J Trump, Pestquire blustered and clanked his way down that schlock gilt escalator in Trump Tower, to the adoring applause of paid shills, it’s been like the guy in that hotel chain commercial with the deep voice, “How low can you go?” The reference of course being to the […]

The 2020 Democratic polls, through a different prism.

You know, when you observe something for a long time, whether professionally, or out of perverse personal pleasure, after a while you start to get a kind of a deel for the object of your attention, a normal flow that tends to occur.

Shame on The New York Times!

Buck-buck-BUCKAW!   The New York Times Well, that was a breath of fetid air. The New York Times just announced that it has made the decision to remove political cartoons from all future editions of their “international” editions. They did this in response to outrage of the recent publication of an editorial cartoon that portrayed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin […]

The Paper “Tyger”

Beware! Here there be tygers   Stephen King One of the big problems with trying to pin Trump directly down with anything is that Don Cheeto Cornholeone is an old fashioned Mafioso.

Beto’s position in the polls is no mystery to me.

There have been all kinds of surprises so far in the Democratic primaries for President. One of them is that in the age of youthful activism, two old white dudes still top the field. Another surprise, at least to me, is the difficulty that well qualified candidates like Klobuchar, Harris, and Booker have had in […]

The dam just broke

You were real funny out in the game zone. It’s not so funny NOW, is it bitch?   Dynamo   The Running Man There’s one overarching image if Bill Barr that I just can’t seem to get out of my mind. And that image is of him standing behind a podium at some conservative function, looking like […]

The Democratic primary is like buying a new car

Shit just got real Indeed it did. The absurdity of watching 19 Democratic candidate all descend at once on Iowa like a bunch of ancient high priests around a fatted calf shows that the primaries are now here in earnest. We are less than 3 weeks away form the first debate, and the Des Moines Register […]

The Psychology of Trump and golf

Even if you’re not a golfer, apparently the hottest ticket on the Fathers Day tour this year is a copy of The Commander in Cheat by Rick Reilly. Reilly,a a serious golfer, whose family is so steeped in golf that they have an annual family outing, in which his 90 something grandmother plays, has golfed with Trump […]
