Donald, Racking up two impeachments is obviously not something most of us would want on our resumes and so I suppose you aren’t in a very good mood tonight. So sad. But you know who probably is in a very, very good mood today? Your old buddy Vladimir – I bet he’s tickled pink by … Continue reading America minus two…. Vladimir plus two….
Our POTUS’s allegiances are not with US
To: Vladimir’s Tool So it was almost refreshing to see that four-star Army General, Gustave Perna, accepted responsibility for the screwed up communication that led to the disconnect between states and Pfizer’s vaccine distribution. Almost. He did say the following (from the WP article led by Isaac Stanley-Becker): “I want to assure everybody, and I … Continue reading Our POTUS’s allegiances are not with US
America’s most dangerous arsonist
To: America’s Most Dangerous Arsonist Well, we watched the 2-minute Twitter-clip distilled from your “most important speech” ever and I’ll tell you what – it didn’t even occur to us to try and hunt down the full 46-minute original. Maybe if we were really, really good (masochistic) Americans, we would have gone ahead and borne … Continue reading America’s most dangerous arsonist
My terrible typo and some happy headlines
To: The Subpar Bogey Man Before I launch into today’s letter for real, I need to tell you that a friend pointed out my terrible typo yesterday granting you another month in office. OMG – that was a big biff. To set the record straight – I know perfectly well that inauguration day is January … Continue reading My terrible typo and some happy headlines
Resentments or gratitude ~ choose wisely
To: The Resentful Angry (would-be) Tyrant (aka The RAT) After reading that you’re being evasive about whether you’ll attend the virtual G20 this weekend I really wanted to use the word “slacker” in the salutation today but decided to go with something that can be shortened to a punchy acronym instead. I figure that the … Continue reading Resentments or gratitude ~ choose wisely
Nervous wrecks ‘R US
President* Trump, We’re getting down to the wire, aren’t we? Are you a nervous wreck? It’s not very charitable of me, but I hope you are. Even less charitable of me, I hope you’re having all sorts of symptoms associated with being a nervous wreck, to include even worse than usual concentration, restlessness, sweaty palms, … Continue reading Nervous wrecks ‘R US
They’ve shown their hand, and it’s trembling
President* Trump, The two recent Executive Orders pertaining to the federal workforce are certainly doozies. I’m referring to the one you issued on September 22nd entitled “Executive Order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping” and the one you issued on October 21st entitled “Executive Order on Creating Schedule F In The Excepted Service.” Seems to … Continue reading They’ve shown their hand, and it’s trembling
Bon voyage dear POTUS?
President* Trump, Looks like I’m late to the party, or at least to the pre-funk where we get to savor the idea that you’ll make good on your threat to leave the country if you lose the election. Yesterday I got a Daily Kos notification about your quip during the super-spreader rally in Macon, Georgia … Continue reading Bon voyage dear POTUS?
Other countries’ histories are instructive too
President* Trump, One of the things I most appreciate about Laura is that she’s an excellent curator – for the entirety of our now quite long relationship, she’s played me music she thinks I’ll like (most of which I do like), pointed me to books, movies, and articles that she knows I’ll find interesting and … Continue reading Other countries’ histories are instructive too
What’s the plan?
President* Trump, You didn’t want us to panic. How thoughtful of you. What a mensch, always looking out for the country – that’s you! No doubt about it. It didn’t take any sort of genius to know that you’d use the notion that you didn’t want to frighten or panic us as the out when … Continue reading What’s the plan?
