There is no Smorgasbord

This Saturday, there is an election. While most of us who actually work with Democratic candidates every election year know, this election is a yawner because it’s the election for DNC Chair. See, here’s something everyone who actually understands political reality already knows, although it seems to be a secret

And Some Blame Goes to…

I blame a lot of people for making us have to deal with Trump in the White House. I blame the Russians, for pushing anti-Hillary stories in the media and for quite possibly hacking the vote in some areas of the country. I blame conservatives for putting aside their claims

Perspective 

It boggles the mind how many “political junkies” seem to think that obsessing over a single vote by a Democrat on something that ultimately doesn’t matter is the hill upon which they wish to sacrifice the progressive movement. It really needs to stop. First of all, you people look stupid,

The Cluster-Trump

Do your realize that it will take another week to go past the one-month mark in the Lord Donny reign? It’s barely over three weeks and he’s already taken two vacation weekends. I mean, even though he excoriated President Obama for his golf outings, he’s actually poised to out-do Obama’s

The Importance of Intelligence – Updated

One of the hallmarks of the Republican ideology comes with the ridiculous notion that they alone can keep us safe. Of course, the concept is insane and we know that, but I’m not sure it’s ever been more ridiculous that it is right now. Think about it. Not a day

One More Thing We Have to Do…

I feel especially prescient lately. Within the last few days, a number of news stories have come to light explaining that Lord Donny really is not a big fan of his job as “president.” And there is a single thread running through all of them. He doesn’t like the job

The Toddler in Chief

As many already know, I am attempting to document everything that Lord Donny does or causes to be done from his high perch at the top of the Executive Branch of the federal government. It’s really hard to keep up. I still have a lot of stuff to add from

Lord Donny is Getting People Killed, Already

This is what happens when we allow the “Fuck You Caucus” to have their way. I am in no way a violent person. The last time I was in a physical fight was when I was 11. I beat the living crap out of the school bully then and, while

The Lord Donny Chronicles: Two Weeks in and WTF!

As I sit here at this moment, it has been exactly two weeks since an excellent president left the White House and was replaced by an authoritarian nightmare. All I can think is, it’s really difficult to believe it’s only been two weeks. Just 206 more weeks to go, worst

Yes We Can, Pro Lefties – and We Have To

As you have probably figured out, I am tired of lefty “political junkies” telling me what we can’t do because “the GOP won’t ever go along” or “voters didn’t do X before, so there’s no reason to expect them to do it now.” You know, silly shit like that. I

STFU, Donny

I have been saying this for almost two years now, but Lord Donny Drumpf has two serious problems. (I know what you’re thinking; he has more problems than that. I’m just talking about problems as they relate to the presidency, for now.) Both of them are actually common problems among

The Toddler-in-Chief Makes Us Less Safe

On Friday, which, quite ironically, just happened to be Holocaust Remembrance Day, Lord Donny decided that was the perfect time to go against everything the country he now represents around the world stands for.  He chose that day to sign an order that suspends all refugee admissions for 120 days

Give him a CHANCE? You’re Kidding, Right? 

A few days ago, someone I actually used to respect a lot actually graciously acknowledged that President Obama gave an amazing farewell speech. This person said the president showed class and dignity in the way that he is leaving the White House. However, this person’s next request left me cold.

The Real (Snow)Flakes

I dunno about you, but I’m tired of being called a “delicate snowflake.” It was perhaps amusing at first, but now it’s just ironic. I mean, the people referring to liberals as “delicate snowflakes” have as a hero someone who cannot take even the smallest slight without lashing out at

Look at the Big Picture

I’ll get into this to a greater degree in a separate post, but we are not really as “polarized” as the media likes to claim. What we actually have is two really loud extremes; the right wing has both a short-term and a long-term goal of “winning,” while the far

The Tone Deafness of the Unicorn Left

As I keep saying, there is a clear reason why liberals and progressives always come out on the short end of the stick. And we should also know and understand that reason. It’s because a small-but-really-loud strain of unicorn progressives prefer drama over reality and almost always go after Democrats for being
