(Climate Change) Denial Is Not a (Dried-Up) River in Egypt

The self-serving myopia is staggering. These old farts won’t be around to experience the ultimate damage to Earth, so they simply don’t care about the future. Donald has very young grandchildren, and he is unconcerned that they will have to… Continue Reading →

Trump SOTU Is So Bad

In the President Donald J. Trump era, the State of the Union has become almost meaningless, except to examine stakeholders’ reactions — and to see if Donald’s speech-reading skills have improved. He offers no policy specifics. He offers only trifling,… Continue Reading →

There IS Education in the Second Kick of a Kentucky Mule

Mitch McConnell is big on that old “second kick of a mule” Kentucky saying. I’m guessing we could find him invoking it even before 2013. With his leadership gone AWOL over the past month’s government shutdown, he has become famous… Continue Reading →

Man-Child Amendment

The Founding Fathers did not plan for a man-child president with a complete lack of empathy, propped up by a supporting political party of invertebrate, hypocritical sycophants. Oh, but the president has backbone. This man-child has the ability to stand… Continue Reading →

GOP Is a POLINO (“poe-LIE-no”): Party of Lincoln in Name Only

Kevin McCarthy averred Rep. Steve King’s latest racist remarks are “not the party of Lincoln.” The implication is, other than King, today’s Republican Party is Lincoln’s party. The GOP loves to say this. But that is hogwash, to use the… Continue Reading →

Ballad of Manafort and Veselnitskaya

The Manafort-Kilimnik connection clearly constitutes collusion. The Don Jr.-Veselnitskaya connection clearly constitutes collusion. Were the actions of Paul Manafort and Donald Trump Jr. part of an illegal conspiracy to steal the 2016 presidential election? Did Donald Sr. know about it?… Continue Reading →

President Trump: Leading “With His” Behind

President Obama’s leadership style was characterized — wildly inaccurately by the opposition — as “leading from behind.” We could say President Trump is leading “with his” behind. This week, three enlightening articles were published about the current chief executive. All… Continue Reading →

Jeb, Donald, and Competing Predictions

Trump’s prescient prediction of presidential investigations was otherworldly. He was right about “Director Comey and the great, great special agents … will be able to collect more than enough evidence”; he nailed his forecast of “efforts to disparage them and… Continue Reading →

Wheels Are Falling Off

There are ongoing criminal investigations into every major component of Donald Trump’s universe, including the campaign, transition, inaugural committee, presidential administration, Trump Foundation, and Trump Organization. There are seven different prosecution teams pursuing 17 separate court cases. It is breathtaking…. Continue Reading →

Wile E. Coyote Has Overshot the Cliff and Road Runner Has Dropped the Anvil on His Head

Trump appointed AG Jeff Sessions and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein. Sessions appointed Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. attorney for the SDNY. Berman is a former law partner of Rudolph Giuliani, a prime-time Trump sycophant. Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller, George… Continue Reading →
