Here's the pro-mask poster we need

As everyone knows, elderly people are most at risk for severe COVID-19 outcomes, so it’s puzzling that Donald Trump — a senior who depends on the votes of seniors — has been so blasé about the pandemic. And his campaign message to you — “Trump: Let’s Spin That Chamber Again and See What the Fuck Happens…

Biden ad takes Trump out of context, and it's brilliant

You may have seen the ad where Donald Trump uses a quote from Dr. Anthony Fauci to “prove” what a great job his administration has done with the COVID pandemic. In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, well, why should you be any different than anyone else? Anyway, here’s the ad: x x YouTube…

I used to be lukewarm on Joe Biden. Now I love him. Here's why.

Maybe we can turn this post into a forum on loving Joe Biden. Like many Democrats, I wasn’t fully onboard with Biden early on, even after he secured the nomination. I mean, there was never a question that I’d vote for him, but I wasn’t getting those warm fuzzies I’d felt about Barack Obama or…

Trump appears to admit he thinks he's on the train to loserville

In a flailing attempt (what does he ever do that isn’t flailing?) to somehow pretend the current 25th Amendment buzz isn’t all about him, Donald Trump appeared to step in a big pile of “shit, this isn’t going well, is it?” this morning. FiveThirtyEight currently gives Joe Biden an 85 percent chance of winning the…

Trump campaign reportedly worried that Brad Parscale will start squealing

Let me bury the lede for the moment to point out that Donald Trump almost certainly thinks he won last night’s debate. Why wouldn’t he? He was quintessentially Trump, and that always gives the ocher asshat a tingling sensation. So it was no surprise when the redoubtable Gabriel Sherman wrote the following. Vanity Fair: Trump doesn’t…

Another GOP stalwart leaps off the Trump Train

To be fair, the Trump Train is actually just a train wreck at this point, but we need all the help we can get. Last night’s spectacle wasn’t a debate so much as two animal control guys attempting to remove a mad raccoon from your attic. Donald Trump is a disgrace. Anyone who still supports…

CNN commentator boils debate down to three simple (closely related) points

Oh, hey, guys! I just woke up. Say, is tonight the night Donald Trump finally became president? No? Okay, just joshing. I watched it. And nothing I can say about it will be as good as this, from CNN political contributor Van Jones: x .@VanJones68 summarized the debate perfectly. pic.twitter.com/9qaGVeGNqe— Jordon Brown Snarker of Tweets…

Independent economic analysis: A Trump loss would be far better for the economy

I’ll never understand why people think Republican presidents — and Republicans in general — are good for the economy. We have decades of economic data that say otherwise. When it comes to the economy, Republicans are like loud, stumbling drunks who keep insisting they’re okay to drive. Every Friday and Saturday night they plow into the…

The Daily Show eviscerates Donald Trump

It is nigh on the witching hour and well past weed o’clock, but I have to share this … like a Trump shares an STD* … but with joy and jocularity, not with malice and burning.  It’s excellent. I’d provide a pithy summary with a heapin’ helpin’ of scintillating bons mots, but I don’t want to. x x…
