“I Hope This Is Not the New Normal — but I Fear It Is”

Mr. Mueller was referring in his testimony to the practice of seeking, accepting, and welcoming foreign election help, even if it falls (just) short of criminality. Yeah, Mueller was shaky. He “juddered.” But because Mueller’s performance was juddering, we should… Continue Reading →

GOP: All Truth Is Deniable

“Go back where you came from” is one of THE most well-known racist things someone can say to members of a minority group. There is nary a teenager alive in America who doesn’t know this. But most Republicans are denying… Continue Reading →

Mad About Trump

If the phrase “end of an era” ever meant anything, this is it: As of October 2019, iconic “Mad” magazine will no longer produce new content after 67 years of publishing cutting-edge sardonic, sarcastic, satiric social commentary and plain old… Continue Reading →

“It’s a Good Way to Get Kids to Skool”

Donald clearly did not know what “busing” is, as referred to in the question from NBC’s Kristen Welker. You could just see the wheels turning in Trump’s head, his mouth spewing gibberish to stall while his brain tried to manufacture… Continue Reading →

If Weakness Is Provocative, Stupidity Is Suicidal

How stupid a commander in chief do you have to be to order a military strike on an adversary without a casualty estimate from your generals (“… great people these generals”)? And if it was a bluff — a crazy-like-a-fox… Continue Reading →

“You’re Being a Little Wise Guy, OK?”

Last week, Donald Trump made the mistake of submitting to an interview by a legitimate, objective reporter. The journalist, George Stephanopoulos, and ABC News retained full editorial control per journalistic standards and ethics. This was confirmed when Donald demanded a… Continue Reading →

Trump Lists: Pro(-removal) & Con(victs)

Confounding principled conservatives — and virtually all Democrats — is how currently serving Republicans have thrown their reputations out the window to support Trump. For most of them, their malfeasance is based wholly upon tweet-attack-a-phobia and self-preservation. Any daylight between… Continue Reading →

Trump Supporters Are People, Too

I have no patience for Trump supporters at this stage of his presidency. If a pro-Trumper repents, however, even now, I will welcome her into the congregation, with complete absolution. I will support her. I will comfort and forgive her…. Continue Reading →

“If the President Clearly Did Not Commit a Crime, We Would Have Said So.”

Robert Mueller spoke publicly for the first time in two years. Some observers were disappointed that he only reiterated certain points made in his written report. Some observers were disappointed that his voice was pitched higher than many expected. But… Continue Reading →

First Sitting Republican to See the Light

My vote for top story of the past week is Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) coming out as the first national GOP legislator to call for the beginning of presidential impeachment hearings. Amash is known as a libertarian Republican of integrity…. Continue Reading →

Mentally Exhausted

I’m mentally exhausted this week. I try to come up with an angle for each article to illustrate the extent of looming danger to the rule of law, Constitution, and American psyche. But the doomsday train keeps rolling, with every… Continue Reading →

What if It’s Simpler Than We Thought?

What if Donald Trump — now known to be a billion-dollar loser, bush-league businessman, and bogus deal-maker — has been kissing Vladimir Putin’s a** simply to protect and enhance his chances for future money-making schemes in Russia. We know that… Continue Reading →
