Rudy, meet bus

Okay, so Rudy Giuliani’s life is finally collapsing faster than his shrunken apple head, and suddenly Donald John Trump isn’t so sure about him. Rudy is balls deep in the Ukraine scandal, and two of his associates tried to flee the country yesterday before being arrested on campaign finance charges. Meanwhile, Rudy himself had planned…

A Bus Ride Through Fly-Over Country…

I have nothing against the people of Minnesota, Arkansas or heartland Iowa, and I have a son who was born in the South. My beef is with the conservative philosophy that begins with the dismissive words ‘I spoke to people in the Midwest and they say…’ Listening tours, town halls and meet and greets at…

Trump cranks the racism up to 11 at his Minnesota hate rally

And the state has just 10 electoral votes. Finding white men with a racist grudge in the Midwest isn’t exactly a heavy lift. I lived in the region for decades.

Another Crack in the Wall: Marc Thiessen Calls Out Trump

I despise Marc Thiessen. He is an inept, supercilious, illogical Trump defender-at-all-costs who gets to write op-ed’s for the Washington Post twice a week, probably so they can claim “balance.”  As a representative of the Trumpists, he is doing them no favors with his easily disassembled distortions. But when I saw this headline this evening,…

water buffaloes bellow with Bret Stephens as seed gets spilled everywhere

Bret Stephens pulls out of a public discussion because it was going to be … public. Makes one wonder what his TED talk could be like …. features everywhere! One hopes that the NY Times has resolved its multi-floor insect infestation. New York Times columnist and vigorously selective defender of free speech Bret Stephens abruptly backed out…

Trump tries to flip Minnesota with yet another campaign rally

Trump is at the Minneapolis Target Center tonight for yet another campaign rally. Below is the Daniel Dale tweet thread in anticipation of another even more stupid Trump statement. It is unbearable to put up with such repetition of falsehoods, but there’s always that hope of some ad-libbed idiocy “><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>And this evening This…

The “Everything Terrible Trump Has Done So Far” Omnibus (Week 142)

As part of the ongoing project to catalog every awful thing the Trump Administration has done as a reference for future political arguments and whatever few posterity survives to see 2020, here’s everything awful the Trump Administration has done this week. 1611. Denied visas to uninsured immigrants 1612. Ended the 5 year oil and gas moratorium in…
