Jan 212018

This is my only article today.  I have not slept well and am very tired.  It’s a high holy day in the Church of the Ellipsoid Orb with Conference Final meditations to watch.  I wonder if someone deflated Brady’s balls.  WWWendy is going to a temporary bartending job today, so she’s coming an hour early to destink the smelly TomCat and help with chores.  She will probably arrive before I finish this.  I hope you are having a great second day of the Republican shutdown.

WWWendy just left.  It feels so good to be clean again!!

From YouTube (SNL Channel): Trump Doctor Press Conference Cold Open


That exam was almost as phony as the real one was. RESIST!!

From Bloomberg: President Donald Trump says on Twitter that if the shutdown stalemate continues, Republicans should consider the so-called “nuclear option” in the Senate, which would allow them to vote on a long-term budget with a simple majority and no more continuing resolutions. “The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked,” Trump says to kick off a day seen as the final chance for a rapid end to the shutdown.

It wouldn’t surprise me if they did it. I am surprised they haven’t done it sooner. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Calling it “the least I can do for my country,” the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said on Saturday morning that she would lie for free during the government shutdown.

“Now more than ever it’s important that the stream of falsehoods and distortions from this White House continues to flow in a steady and uninterrupted fashion,” Sanders said. “To achieve that, for the duration of the government shutdown I will be lying on a pro-bono basis.”

Sanders said that Donald Trump had asked that she keep a full accounting of the lies she told during the shutdown so that she could be reimbursed for them later, but she turned down that offer. “I’ve often said that I like to lie so much I would do it for free,” she said. “This is a chance to put my money where my mouth is.”

Dang Andy! For Upchuckabee-Sanders, lying for free is like a bear shitting in the woods for free. RESIST!!



I bet most wish they had stayed in Canada!

After a long two month absence, it’s that time of week again, and I’m happy to share four fine video clips from Bill’s show last night.  Enjoy!

Monologue: Trump’s Tighty Whities


Bill is right. The tighty whities are Trump’s deplorable voters.

Michael Wolff: Current Affairs

Many other psychopaths and sociopaths, like Trump, could easily pass the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which tests for dementia, not psychotic conditions or personality disorders.

Saru Jayaraman: Forked


Now, in my youth, I lived well on tips, working as a waiter for a year, and I never showed more cleavage. Dang!!  If only I had known!

New Rule: Distinction Deniers


I agree with Bill, except that Pence is worse than ISIS.  Pence and his Fuhrer are responsible for the deaths of more innocents.

It there ever was a day we needed comic relief, this is the day!


Jan 202018

It’s another stinky, muggy day, and I slept poorly.  I can’t wait for shower day tomorrow.  Welcome to the first day of the second year of Trump’s Russian Republican Reich and the first day of the Republican Shutdown.

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today’s took me 2:58 (average 4:44).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

From YouTube (MoveOn Channel): This is Trump’s Shutdown


Even then, Trump was lying. Last night, after the Senate vote failed, Schumer even offered Trump funding, as demanded, for the wall. Trump refused. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Donald J. Trump is “scared to death” that the 2020 Presidential election will be decided by Americans, an aide to Trump has confirmed.

The aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that Trump is panicking over a doomsday scenario in which Americans, sidelined during the 2016 election, play a dominant role in influencing the 2020 contest.

“It sounds paranoid, but, as we speak, representatives of the United States are already plotting to remove him from office in 2020,” the aide said. “They are determined to replace him with someone who takes a move favorable view toward their country.”

The aide said that the Americans, frustrated by Trump’s open hostility to the United States since taking office, will “stop at nothing” to achieve their ultimate goal: installing an agent of the U.S. in the Oval Office.

Andy seems to have a window into Putin’s Pervert’s psyche. RESIST!!

From Politico: “The shutdown rests at the feet of the GOP and it appears a majority of Americans agree”

Michael Steele is a former chairperson of the Republican National Committee.

Despite the rhetorical effort to paste Democrats with “Schumer’s Shutdown” and to redefine what constitutes majority control of the senate (“60”? Really?), the fact remains that this shutdown rests at the feet of the GOP and it appears a majority of Americans agree. I don’t like it. It certainly could have been avoided, but the President wound up negotiating against himself by taking a potential agreement off the table, leaving Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to lament, “As soon as we figure out what he is for, then I would be convinced that we were not just spinning our wheels.” That put Republicans in the position to spin their wheels right into another government shutdown. Pitiful.

We need to call this disaster what it is: the Republican Shutdown! RESIST!!

It’s another warm, super-muggy day.  WWWendy sis a stellar job of destinking the TomCat yesterday evening.  Unfortunately, The TomCat is already stinky again, and the next shower is Sunday.  Sad smile TGIF!

Today’s took me 2:54 (average 4:12).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From YouTube (Late Show Channel): The Fake News Awards Were Worth The Wait


Colbert lied. Trump is bad at being Resident 100% of the time, not 90%.  Kudos to all who won a Fake News Award from the Pumpkin Pervert. RESIST!!

From YouTube (Funny or Die Channel): White Noise Sleep Machine: How Racists Sleep At Night


Republicans can get their own Aryan 2 for only $19.99. RESIST!!

From Washington Post: An appointee of President Trump has resigned from the federal agency that runs AmeriCorps and other service programs after remarks he made disparaging blacks, Muslims, gays, women, veterans with PTSD and undocumented immigrants surfaced in the news media.

Carl Higbie lasted less than six months as the chief of external affairs in the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Higbie’s Thursday afternoon resignation, which was prompted after CNN unearthed the comments he made, comes amid increased scrutiny of the president’s appointees for racist or anti-Muslim statements made in the past.

Sadly, the Republican Party has a deep pool of bigots in which to find a replacement, who also hates blacks, Muslims, gays, women, vets with PTSD and undocumented immigrants. RESIST!!

It’s that time of week again, so here are three excellent video clips from Sam’s show last night.  Enjoy!!

#MeToo Backlash


For the most part, I agree with Sam, but Babe.net’s handling the Aziz Ansari incident went too far. Accountability is a must, but a witch hunt mind-set is sure to hurt the innocent with the guilty.

Full Frontal Investigates: Is This Racist Racist?


We KNOW the racist is racist like the rest of the racist Republican Reich.

The Actual Forgotten Working Class


"The best representation of us is us." AMEN!! Cool song!

Thanks Sam!

It’s another super muggy day, and I’m very tired, because I slept intermittently last night.  So please pardon my brevity.

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today’s took me 3:09 (average 4:37).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From YouTube (Jimmy Kimmel Channel): The Porn Donald Trump Doesn’t Want You to See

Barf Bag Alert!!


Frankly, I don’t believe it. It overrated his performance. RESIST!!

From Daily Kos: Republican senators Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley have been back home in Iowa to hold small town halls in rural areas, places they probably thought would be ‘safe spaces’ from angry voters. WRONG. The rural voters who turned out were not happy with Donald Trump and they unloaded on Ernst and Grassley. In one particularly embarrassing moment for Sen. Ernst in Red Oak, Iowa (population 5,476), she drew laughter and scorn.

Pig Nuts Barf Bag Alert!!


Joni Pig Nuts is too stupid to know that both Sweden and Finland are between Norway and Russia. RESIST!!

From NY Times: It was a made-for-TV moment, perfect for a presidential campaign advertisement.

His fists clenched and his voice rising, Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey, delivered a 10-minute verbal thrashing to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen this week, recalling his “tears of rage” when he learned that President Trump had used vulgarities to describe African nations.

Not to be outdone, Senator Kamala Harris, Democrat of California, who was seated next to Mr. Booker, also skewered Ms. Nielsen, suggesting that Americans could draw a “reasonable inference” that she is racist.

The next presidential election is nearly three years away, but in the Capitol the race is already unfolding, with no fewer than six senators — Mr. Booker and Ms. Harris, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kirsten E. Gillibrand of New York and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota — eyeing the Democratic nomination in 2020, with each angling to get to the left of the others.

Personally I think this is premature. Our eyes need to be focused on 2018, not 2020. RESIST!!
