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?
President* Trump, Yesterday Laura came back from her walk with the biggest apple I’ve ever seen. It looks like a Honeycrisp on steroids – I think it’s about 50% bigger than a big one of those apples. She found it on the ground and somehow it isn’t bruised and there aren’t any worm holes or … Continue reading Tubman $20’s
President* Trump, Our ballots came this afternoon! We’re going to sit down and do the research on the less obvious contests and issues this evening and will make the ceremonial ballot drop off trip tomorrow some time. Yee-hah! I have two rather poetic, if totally unrealistic, mental images of all the millions of mail-in ballots … Continue reading Sending ballots on their way and an old phrase with ignoble origins
President* Trump, So I guess when the WAstate.gov website says that general election ballots will be mailed on October 16, 2020 it means they aren’t going to show up in our mailboxes the same day. I see that this is logical – ballots don’t have special powers and can’t just teleport into mailboxes the same … Continue reading Let’s chuck those old male models
President* Trump, Now, I don’t for a minute think the real Amy Coney Barrett was abducted by her husband in cahoots with a band of wife-killer husbands and replaced with the butter-won’t-melt-in-my-mouth, perfectly poised non-committal woman who participated in the SCOTUS confirmation hearings this week. Nope, we can’t chalk her perfectly scripted responses up to … Continue reading Women who betray other women
President* Trump, Is there no one in your camp willing to hold the magic mirror up for you to see how pathetic your groveling and race baiting looks? “Suburban women, would you please like me? Please. Please, I saved your damn neighborhoods, OK?” “….my favorite people in the world—the seniors…. We’re taking care of our … Continue reading Mirror, mirror…. who’s the fairest of them all?
President* Trump, All morning and well into the afternoon the weather here was gray and spitty, which is pretty classic for Seattle this time of year. It was actually rather comforting since lately we’ve been having lots of sustained downpours that are almost certainly global warming driven and are definitely unsettling. In addition to being … Continue reading Orb spider webs, RBG, ACB, and Columbus
President* Trump, This morning on my walk it occurred to me that among its many problems, the Electoral College functions to suppress the vote. I don’t know why we don’t talk about it this way (or if people do talk about it this way, why I’ve missed it all these years) since it’s really not … Continue reading The Electoral College as a form of voter suppression
President* Trump, How was your little outing this afternoon? Somehow I don’t think that Suburban is big enough to have allowed the other people in the vehicle to be 6’ away from you, masks or no masks. I wonder how they’re going to feel about their decision to accompany you on your little joy ride … Continue reading They aren’t even looking after their own
President* Trump, Just two weeks and two days before WA state mails out our General Election ballots! You may rest assured, your Lowness, that there will be no dilly-dallying in the Little/Simpson household this year – we will be filling those puppies out the day we get them and depositing them in a drop box … Continue reading Debacles 2 and 3 must proceed
