Trump “Election Fraud” Con Artist of the Day: Terpsichore Maras-Lindeman

I’m not a comedy writer, but I know a few, and I guarantee none of them would have written anything like this. The Washington Post (who puts stories like this behind a paywall, so they don’t get a link — the Seattle Times gets it instead) learned who Sidney Powell’s Super Secret By Gosh and Golly […]

Dominion Prepares to Destroy “Star Fraud Witness” Mellissa Carone

We all saw Rudy’s “star witness” Mellissa Carone make a sneering, screeching fool of herself during her turns in front of Republican-dominated Michigan State House and Senate panels investigating the fairy tales of “election fraud” touted by Trump, Giuliani, and every other miserable bastard who is still trying to curry favor with the wannabe despot. Now […]

The Last Hurrah, But Without The Fanfare?

On August 8th, 1974, in a prime time speech to the nation from the Oval Office, Richard Nixon officially announced his resignation from the office of President of the United States, to take effect at noon the next day. The next morning, Nixon gave an emotional farewell speech to his staff, after which the entire […]

Trump’s Chumps

Hey, look! It isn’t even Groundhog’s Day. and isn’t that Murf popping his head out of his hole?! Yes, it is. And yes, I saw my shadow, and so did pretty much everybody else. When I pop out of my hole, entire states tend to think that a solar eclipse just occurred. One of the reasons for my recent […]

Dominion Executive Files Massive Lawsuit Against Trump Campaign, Guiliani, Newsmax, Others

Sometimes the shit comes down so heavy I feel like I should wear a hat. — Body Heat, 1981 Rudy, Rudy, Rudy. The crazy train carrying you and your idiot buddies is going over a cliff. It was only a few days ago that Lou Dobbs and various other lying shitweasels scurried in front of the […]

Trump’s Possible Pardon Plans Hinge on Pence

Okay, folks, follow me on this one. Trump is gone from the White House as of January 20, even if he has to be thrown out. (I volunteer for that duty!) And we all know Trump is hot for a presidential pardon. It’s pretty clear that Trump cannot legally pardon himself. So, to get a presidential pardon […]

The Ultimate Self Inflicted Gunshot Wound

Ahhhh, well. If you’re going to put yourself out there doing op-ed work on a website, sooner or later, you’re going to end up eating a little crow. I’ve done it before, and made no bones about it, but BOY!, do I look like a total schmuck this time! But this isn’t just about me sitting around […]

Another “Norm” Is About To Bite The Dust

While politics has always been a good, old fashioned, bare knuckle brawl when done right, there was also an almost soothing regularity and rhythm to it. When one event occurred, there was often a next step which more or less automatically kicked in. This provided a sense of normalcy, and organization. But since the day that […]

Hail And Farewell, Tubby The Ewok. Now, BUGGER OFF!

At least the man is consistent. Attorney General William Barr rode into office on the lie about the contents of Robert Mueller’s Russia report, and slithers off on a lie about Barr departing before Christmas to spend more time with his family. This was by no means unexpected. For the last week or so, Barr […]

We Are Not Done. We Will Never Be Done.

For years, I’ve admired the writing and viewpoints of Amanda Marcotte. On December 9 and 11, she published two articles that said what I have been trying to codify in my head for months: this coup that the GOP is attempting to engineer is only the start of a larger push towards an autocracy that will […]
