To: Psychopath President The last couple of weeks I’ve been seeing fewer and fewer antiracism signs in people’s yards and windows. On the block just south of us that I take most mornings when I head out for my walks it was especially noticeable how many fewer such signs there were. I found myself bracing … Continue reading Here we all are. Still.
Mr. Scam America, I knew there was a more succinct way of describing what you all are doing with the various voter fraud donation websites than the phrase “theft by false pretenses” and it’s simply the word “scam.” How ‘bout that, huh? Just four little letters sums up your whole larcenous swindle incredibly well. What … Continue reading Mr. Scam America
To: The Whiny Loser I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before my shoulders are up around my ears again, but so far this morning they and I have been pretty chill, there’s even been some happy tears. Why, you don’t ask? Well, seeing the upper “front” page of the WP announcing all the … Continue reading No free passes for past bad actors
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
To: The Sorest, Most Messed-Up Loser Ever Yesterday our intern chaplain preached and near the end of her sermon our senior minister said in the chat that she thought it was one of the best sermons ever. It was a truly wonderful sermon on an incredibly challenging portion of the lectionary – Mathew 25: 14-30, … Continue reading Vulnerability shouldn’t be a luxury
To: The Handy Dandy Tool Yesterday I, along with countless far better informed and more articulate journalists, wondered aloud whether all the signs and portents emanating (spewing, really) from your administration and the GOP power-pack indicate that a coup is neigh. Indeed, for all the world it looks as though you all have pushed and … Continue reading Why him?
To: Mr. Bone spurs Happy Veterans’ Day! Looks like you devoted all of 20 minutes to going through the motions of honoring veterans today – from 11am to 11:20am EST. Maybe your published public calendar is missing all the heartfelt phone calls you made to veterans and their families today, thanking them for their sacrifice … Continue reading Beyond redemption
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
Technically Still President* Trump, It’s true, you’re technically still president for 74 more long days and I’m sure you’ll make the most of it in between bouts of record destruction and further norm desecration. But hey, I have a terrific idea – why don’t you just golf every day, all day for the next 74 … Continue reading Love, humility, and honor coming to an Oval Office near US, soon
