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….
Donald, I toyed with starting this letter with just “XXXX” and dispensing with your name or any clever, mocking labels but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. I actually wrote it out and started to say something about the choice, but I decided it would be too similar to what you’ve done to so … Continue reading The unity panacea won’t cut it this time
Donald, Ten more days. Much as I’d like to be wrong, I’m not optimistic that Pelosi and Schumer are going to be able to get you out of office early. I am, however, glad they’re working on it in earnest and that a historic second set of Articles of Impeachment will be launched tomorrow. Nothing … Continue reading There are no guarantees
Donald, I imagine things were quiet there in DC first thing this morning, that the stink of the tear gas has cleared, that the spent shells were swept away overnight, and that all the Confederate and MAGA paraphernalia littering the Capitol was relegated to the dustbin (though I’m sure a few sympathizers pocketed some bits … Continue reading Yesterday morning, before
Donald, What to say? I don’t know. The in our faces events of the day have been scrutinized and parsed every which way from Sunday and there are still countless declarations swirling about the necessity for more scrutiny and parsing about how it was that the mob breached the Capitol, how it was that we … Continue reading Our hearts were broken into even smaller pieces today
To: The Supreme Gaslighter About a third of the way into my walk this morning I realized I’d forgotten my phone at home (I got out of practice with my morning routine over the holidays). I’m chagrined to admit that I only realized this when I wondered whether the weather arbiter that lives inside my … Continue reading Over-reliance on oracles
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, 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
President* Trump, It’s not very often that the procrastination gods smile on me, but today they did indeed. I tweaked my back on Monday taking the sheets off the bed and haven’t slept well since so couldn’t face letter writing this morning. I really dislike putting it off until the evening, especially during the week, … Continue reading The procrastination gods smiled on me today
Dear President Trump, I know you have (and take) plenty of opportunity to look in the mirror, whether directly at yourself or at one of your surrogates, but I thought we’d start the day with yet another (from the WP’s coronavirus updates): “Although the rate of infection shows no sign of slowing, Vice President Pence … Continue reading Covid charades and “The Betrayals”
