On Wednesday, Rep. Liz Cheney was bounced from her leadership position in the House GOP for refusing to acknowledge the eternal, immutable, omnipotent godhead recently incarnated in the form of a mealy, incontinent panic yam in order to drain the D.C. swamp and save the world from blood-hoovering pedophiles like Tom Hanks. (As we know, Donald Trump didn’t drain the swamp at all, but I never expected him to. That said, if he’d managed to drain at least a portion of the fluid off Louie Gohmert’s brain, I might have finally given him some credit. Sadly, he didn’t do that, either.)
Now, in case you hadn’t noticed, about the only response Republicans have had so far to Joe Biden’s presidency—which hit the ground running back in January and shows little sign of stopping—is that he’s somehow responsible for “cancel culture.”
Republicans, with a big assist from Fox News, have tried to convince voters that in Joe Biden’s America you won’t be able to read Dr. Seuss to your children while eating a hamburger and covering up your role in a violent coup attempt meant to reverse the certified outcome of a free and fair election. I mean, those things are as American as baseball, apple pie, and underground Moscow troll farms. WHY WOULD YOU CANCEL THEM?
In contrast to Donald Trump’s shambolic bearing, appearance, and comportment, Aldous J. Pennyfarthing is a natty hail-fellow-well-met and a gentleman.
