I’m not sure if this is toxic masculinity so much as toxic schlubbery. How women, men, children, or companion animals look in public is pretty much no one’s business but their own. I mean, I live in Eugene, Oregon, where each day I see something that could have been torn...

Speechless.   Just speechless.    According to CNN, Mike Pence is starting a PAC to defend Donald Trump’s record and they remain close friends. What in the world?  Some man incites a mob, a former boss, hunts me and not just me but my family, screaming down the halls of congress, Hang...

Apparently Lindsey Graham was none too concerned about the galaxy-sized gap in our nation’s credibility after he voted to acquit Donald John Trump—twice—of eminently impeachable offenses. Moreover, he’s not terribly concerned about gaps in health coverage, or in our previous pr*sident’s response to COVID-19. Though he does appear determined to...

George W. Bush was clearly the worst president ever … up until recently, that is. The past three Republican presidents have been George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Donald Trump. I hated them all, but the first two were like enduring a mildly cruel hazing ritual, whereas the last was more...

Probably the last official deal crafted by Trump will be his pardon, whether of himself or by Mike Pence after Trump’s resignation with hours or minutes to spare. One wonders if Trump will leave the customary letter to his successor in the Oval Office desk, or perhaps just leave a...

Trump will leave quietly, as Michael Cohen has suggested, likely to Mar-a-Lago early and not return. He will remain noisy throughout, whining about the theft of an election even as he tried to steal it using ridiculous degrees of lawfare, losing with a score of 1-60. Meanwhile, a month of temper-tantrums, as...

So we’ve had some fun here speculating what would happen if Trump refused to leave the White House on January 20. There's been (gleeful) talk of US Marshals hauling him out, or the Secret Service drawing lots to see who gets to do it. But now it seems this could...

Laura Loomer is an Islamophobic nut who lost her long-shot bid to represent Florida’s 21st Congressional District by a whopping 20 points, despite (or maybe because of?) an endorsement from Donald Trump. x Great going Laura.

In a few months, winter will arrive, and we are woefully unprepared for the sicknesses of the flu and cold season. It may be impossible to tell who is sick with a respiratory condition and someone who has COVID, a scenario that could cripple our health care system across the...

I live in a blue state, and it’s pretty clear what Donald Trump thinks of me. From his peevish attitude toward the tribulations of Puerto Ricans to his threats to cut off disaster funding to California, it’s become more than obvious that Trump sees some Americans as more American than others. And...
