Donald, Again, I’m retracing old ground, but given how little we have learned, I think it’s warranted. This morning I read an interview with Congresswoman Jayapal by Rebecca Traister for The Cut about Jayapal’s experiences on Wednesday during the Capitol siege. Jayapal recounts how there’d been talk days ahead of time that a large protest … Continue reading Angry about our anger double standard
To: The Narcissist in Chief I’m betting you took a pass on watching Joe Biden’s speech last night after all the Electoral College votes had been cast and his win affirmed. I’m also betting that if you had watched you would’ve scoffed and belittled him for being conciliatory and weak, for insisting that he’ll be … Continue reading Biden is doing his best Biden for US
To: The Lame-a** Hot Air Machine Dude, have you no pride? Any? Even a tiny bit? Seriously, what the hell are you doing calling Kemp again, trying to get him to throw you Georgia? It’s done. Move on. Stop it. You look like a fool even if you’re still able to milk your peeps for … Continue reading 0202 PMURT says it all
To: The Shyster Have you seen Ed Norton’s Twitter thread laying out his ideas about the real reason you’re pulling all this bogus voter fraud and “oh, help me, they stole the election from me” bullshit? It’s old news now (2 days old, that is) but if you haven’t seen it, you might want to … Continue reading We’ve got to count all of the elephants in the room
To: The Tool It’s clearly not a new phenomenon in either our longer-term collective history or when it comes to you and your base, but given the phenomenal degree of nutso-ness (a totally technical term, btw) I’m not finished unpacking mass hysteria. Here’s the definition that my Google algorithm delivers (from Wikipedia): “In sociology and … Continue reading Mass hysteria on steroids
One-term Trump, To coup or not to coup, is that the question? Or is the real question ‘to play at coup but not to coup’? Or what? What are you doing? Where are you going with all this? Do you even know or are you just reading the cue cards that someone’s putting in front … Continue reading To coup or not to coup, is that the question?
To: He who refuses to concede appropriately (as in, at all) The relief and modest jubilation phase is officially over and I’m settling back into worry mode as you drag this out and your faithful bootlickers elbow each other out of the way to prove their fealty to you and your lost cause. Lyrics from … Continue reading Our POTUS is trying to take US down
President* for only 73 more days (and counting) Trump, My word of the day today is “bittersweet”, which is defined as either “bitterness and sweetness combined,” which I think is rather too literal and pretty lame, or as “pleasure mixed with overtones of sadness,” which I like quite a bit better (https://www.yourdictionary.com/bittersweet). In this morning’s … Continue reading Bitter and sweet, sweet and bitter
President* Trump, Last night we decided that the word of the day was “pissy.” Laura, our friend, and I cycled through various analogous words (e.g., irritable, frustrated, grumpy, cranky, grouchy) but when one or the other of us landed on “pissy” we all exclaimed that this was the best descriptor of them all and oddly, … Continue reading Where the hell do we go from here?
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
