PBS NewsHour / YouTube What Robert Mueller brings to the...

Believe it or not, there’s somebody even more worried about Mueller than Trump.

You know, Der Gropinfuror really should stop calling it a “witch hunt.” At last check, small as it is, Trump still had a teenie-weenie, so he really should be referring to Mueller’s investigation as a “warlock hunt.” There’s no doubt about it, Robert Mueller is the #12 reason for soaked bed sheets in the Presidential bedroom, following incontinence. And I don’t blame Trump one little bit. After all, if Ruday Fhouliani and Jay Suckulow were my last line of defense against Robert Mueller, I’d be scared shitless too. But believe it or not, there is one person in Washington DC who is even more terrified of Robert Mueller than The Cheeto Prophet is. And that man is Mitch McConnell, Trump’s last, best chance of getting out of this mess with his ass unscathed. In McConnell’s case, it is perfectly admissible for him to use the phrase “witch hunt.” And that’s because, starting on January 3rd, Nancy Pelosi is going to be leading the coven, and that woman has one mean ass broomstick.Not only does McConnell no longer have a complaint co-conspirator leading the House, what he has instead is an opponent who knows the game and arcane rules every bit as well as he does, and she has a largely unified caucus behind her. “Bubble, bubble, toila d trouble,” asshole. The real problem for McConnell isn’t just that the Democratic led House committees are going to be holding fair, honest investigations, it’s that the ungrateful little bastards are going to hold them publicly. And it won’t be just Trump-Russia either, they’re going to be digging into Trump’s emoluments clause violations, Jared’s financial ties to the middle east, Trump’s ties to Saudi Arabia, Ivanka’s sweetheart patent deals with China, the list goes on and on. and Democratic House committee members will be overjoyed to go on CNN and MSNBC, and explain what it means to the rest of us in simple, easy to grasp terms.Which sucks for McConnell, because while, our bombastic rhetoric about “family values” notwithstanding, Americans have always been rather ambivalent about their President getting a little on the side, we still tend to draw the line at our President selling out the country to stuff his pockets. The 2018 midterms were McConnell’s worst case of night terrors, because of what it portends for 2020. Nevermind the House debacle, McConnell has worse smelling fish to fry. The Democrats posted record turnout numbers nationwide in a midterm, and thrashed the GOP by some 8 million votes. They flipped seven Governorships in 2018, including ruby red Kansas, putting upward pressure on any GOP incumbents running in those states. Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania are now blue states again, and North Carolina, Georgia and Texas are not going to be the walkovers they once were. The biggest problem GOP Senate incumbents face in 2020 is whether it’s worse to piss Trump off, and have him back a primary challenger from the right, or let him come and campaign for you, especially in states with large urban areas with adjoining former GOP suburban strongholds. Look, the GOP was solidly behind Nixon, right up to the point where it became untenable to do so. Forget about Trump-Russia for a minute. Trump is not only dishonest enough, he is sloppy enough to have left the democrats in the House a cornucopia […]

Trump let the cat out of the bag

Teri closed last night, so I was fortunate enough to still be asleep, and thereby miss the post massacre pep talk from the caretaker of the workshop of broken toys. But I caught more than enough replay snippets once I got up to let me know that I didn’t miss a damn thing. But even with only truncated material to work with, I was amazed yet again as to how much self destructive blather His Lowness is capable of creating, especially when you consider the thought that he was reading from a fucking teleprompter a set of remarks written for him, since none of them appear on the $1 menu at McDonald’s. First, Trump blamed the toxic atmosphere of the internet, and tha rampant racism and hatred contained therein, for the current level of hatred and mistrust in this country. Pardonez moi, but isn’t this the same internet that you yourself, with considerable assistance from your buddy Vlad the Imp. liberally fire hosed down with enough bigoted, corrosive sludge that you creepy slid all the way into the Oval Office? The same internet you continue to use to refer to other human beings as an “invasion,” and “an infestation,” and as a bullhorn to tell American citizens to “go back where they came from?” Spoiler alert, your Freudian slip is showing. Then he blamed the rampant violence on the excessive gore content of video games. Video games  This coming from a man with such pathetic manual dexterity and situational awareness that his most famous Twitter utterance was “covfefe.” And I find it amusing that while profoundly violent games can easily be ordered online, with no effective means of age verification, you can’t find a classic Loony Tunes cartoon on commercial television to save your soul, because they’re considered to be too violent for young children. But then Trump swung for the fences, and ho, mama, did he hit a grand slam home run. In his desperate efforts to absolve human septic tanks like Wayne “Pepe” LaPierre, and the death merchants from responsibility, Trump instead pivoted and said that what we as a country needed to address to end to gun violence in this country was not new laws, nay it was the pernicious underbelly of mental health. This literally freaked the fuck outta me, since I just posted a tweet two days ago reminding everyone that Trump’s first substantive domestic bill he signed into law, erased the Obama era regulations requiring mental health background checks! But be that as it may, with that ill considered pronouncement, son, you in a heap of trouble. Because, with that sonorous pronouncement on a renewed national push on mental health, Glorious Bleater just blew the GOP out of the healthcare debate for the 2020 election. Why? Because, what is the easiest way to not only encourage, but implement expanded mental health services in the United States? Universal fucking medical coverage, that’s how! Whether you go with Bernie or Elizabeth’s Medicare-for-all, or Biden or Harris’ medicare-buy-in option to private coverage, it’s the quickest, easiest way to ensure that people can receive the mental health care that they need, especially if Obamacare is expanded to provide regulations for the minimum care standards required. Look, I grew up in Cicero, Illinois, just on the western border of Chicago, and I’m old enough to remember when the state had […]
