Stumpy is behaving much better today, and mounted George without difficulty. It’s a very busy day for me. I took a brief nap this morning to be sure to be upright when Store to Door arrives with a large grocery order. This evening, Wendy will be here to de-stink and polish the TomCat, to help with some light housework, and to have chili dogs for supper. I didn’t tell her, because I did the last time we had chili. She mentioned it at work, and her school cancelled classes the next day.

Reckless is indeed an understatement! RESIST!!
From The Rachel Maddow Show: DCCC weak contesting Georgia district Trump barely won
Rachel Maddow points out the opportunity for Democrats to take over Tom Price’s Georgia congressional as he moves to become Donald Trump’s HHS secretary and yet the DCCC seems half-hearted about taking advantage.
Contact the DCCC (202) 863-1500 and tell them to get off their asses! RESIST!!
From The New Yorker: Russian President Vladimir Putin is “starting to get concerned” that the puppets he installed in the executive branch of the U.S. government “might not be up to the task at hand,” sources confirmed on Tuesday.
According to the sources, the flameout of the national-security adviser Michael Flynn was only the most recent event that has caused Putin to wonder if the figureheads he propelled into office are “just too dim-witted” to serve the goals of the Russian Federation.
“When you choose a puppet, you’re looking for a sweet spot,” one source close to Putin said. “You want to choose someone who’s dumb enough to be manipulated, but not so dumb that he can’t find the light switches.”
“Increasingly, it looks like we missed that sweet spot,” the source said.
Spot on, Andy! Fortunately for Putin (R-RU), his puppet has a horde of other equally treacherous Republicans goose-stepping behind their Fuhrer to help him. RESIST!!
