Dear President Trump, I bet you’re cursing the gods over the insanely (almost certainly climate-change-driven) cold weather that’s gripping much of the United States this week since it will probably drive up viewership of the open impeachment hearings. It really is rather bum timing for you and so if the very early, very cold weren’t … Continue reading Maybe it’s more about keeping certain people out than keeping someone in
Dear President Trump, What was with that weird “hug” yesterday? Kurt Suzuki didn’t seem the least bit fazed, caught up as he was in his own glory moment and apparently the sheer joy of getting to share it with you (go figure). You don’t even have to try, you just spontaneously come up with the … Continue reading What if victims insist they aren’t victims?
Dear President Trump, I’m going to try to remember to use this great little phrase coined by David Greenberg (WP editorial “When Should Republicans Jump Ship?”) in the future, but want to share it with you now just for the heck of it – “rump devotees.” He was referencing GOP toadies who maintained allegiance to … Continue reading “Rump devotees” and more plausible deniability
Dear President Trump, Well, I made something of a boo-boo yesterday in laying out an impeachment avoidance plan for you since that horse is well out of the gate and nearly into the homestretch. Impeachment is pretty certainly going to happen to you, it’s the removal piece that you still have some hope of avoiding. … Continue reading America’s soul in exchange for another day in power
Dear President Trump, Happy Celtic New Year – it’s a new day dawning, isn’t it? A new day with oodles of new challenges ahead as you try to come up with new shade to throw now that we are into the open hearing era of this impeachment process. I’m sure you’ll be trying out new … Continue reading The impeachment avoidance plan
Dear President Trump, Ok, so here’s the letter I’d already mostly drafted before the Vindman revelations hit yesterday’s news cycle…. There might have been moments during Mark Zuckerberg’s Congressional testimony last week when he sounded like he knew what the hell he was talking about. He’s a smart guy, so surely he didn’t sound like … Continue reading Facebook and gas
Dear President Trump, Hey, I owe you something of an apology. Laura pointed out last night that you aren’t a “would-be demagogue” but rather a very real one. I had the meaning of demagogue confused with words like despot, autocrat, and dictator and didn’t want to suggest that you are in complete control and thus … Continue reading What’s up with Pence?
Dear President Trump, Maybe you’ve never had such a nightmare, but you’ve probably heard people talk about it when they’ve dreamed they’re sitting in a class and the teacher says it’s time to take the test and the dreamer had no idea there was a test and wakes up in a panic. It’s a pretty … Continue reading How low will they go?
Dear President Trump, I figured the chances of the Sport Clips people seeing yesterday’s letter to you on my blog were nil so I wrote to them directly. I’m snail-mailing the letter to the Shoreline franchise owner and cc’ing the corporate office in Texas because they don’t have a way to contact them online if … Continue reading What if it were really true that no one would ever be left behind?
Dear President Trump, I knew as I typed it that “Dorsal” was a weird name for a ginormous country club, but it didn’t stick out enough then, or any of the five or so times I re-read yesterday’s letter before posting it, for me to catch the mistake. Sorry about that. I do try to … Continue reading “It’s Good To Be A Guy”
