Revolt of the Beautiful People Who Hate Trump

 

The official word in Washington is that the loathsome Donald Trump is already history and on his way out, enmeshed in scandal, self-inflicted wounds, abandoned by staff, utterly alone and powerless. How convenient for all concerned is that he’s leaving on an eight-day trip overseas on Friday. Some will call it an escape into exile. […]

Love Is the Answer

 

No good deed goes unrewarded. Last week Lady Hillary blamed her defeat, more emphatically than ever before, on a saboteur named James Comey. In another act of kindness toward the gal whose dreams he shattered, President Trump did her a solid and fired the guy effective last July. So how’s he being thanked? Lady H’s […]

No Repeal, No Appeal

 

In another burst of firsts, Lady Hillary continues to break records sounding like a broken record. How long will she persist in this this misery tour? Until she wins election on November 3, 2020? Will the Russians let her? Will James Comey? Will the Misogynists? Notice the Democrats themselves will have no say in this. […]

Winning Is for Losers

 

Democrats sure put a scare in Republicans this week and last. (Normally Republicans get scared just peeking into a mirror — just ask Rep. Jason Chaffetz.) First in Kansas, a Democrat came within 7 points of defeating a Republican in the special election to replace Mike Pompeo, now CIA director whom Roger Stone has taken […]

Rhapsody in Black and Blue

 

We were on to United years ago. Anyone who tries to turn Gershwin into a jingle is in trouble right there. That was just a short step from turning Gershwin into Muzak, which it promptly did as well. Then it turned out the airline was in the sardine-packing business. The only way passengers could survive […]

Politics With a Twist

 

As always, Ronald Reagan comes in very handy. One of his favorite anecdotes involved a pony. There was this young boy, an eternal optimist, who sure wanted to have one for himself. A concerned psychiatrist took him to a room filled with manure, as if a pony’s leftovers might dampen his enthusiasm. Instead, the boy began […]

Filibuster Bluster and Other Schiffs in the Story

 

Chuck wants to get nuked. Says he’s going to filibuster the Gorsuch nomination because, among other things, there’s a cloud hanging over the president who nominated Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Has anyone seen that cloud? No. Is it adding to climate change? No. Is it a matter of just giving Scott Pruitt at […]

Don’t Get Maddow, Get Even

 

Program Advisory: Steer clear of MSNBC. Mother Maddow might still be doing the preliminaries about her career making and ending scoop involving a major 2005 development that wasn’t captured on tape by fool of fools Billy Bush. But she lied and her reputation died. “We’ve got Trump tax returns,” she promised as she enticed and suckered […]

Turning the Tables on His Pursuers

 

There’s been nothing like it since 1968. Let’s go to the videotape. The movie, Bullitt, starring Steve McQueen as the eponymous SFPD detective Frank Bullitt. It was McQueen’s greatest role — he let his eyes do his acting for him, always a wise choice in his case and boy was he observant this time. The […]

Impeach the Former President

 

The overlooked big news this week was the bloodless coup over at Random House, which saw the Obamas sign a joint deal for their White House memoirs at upwards of $60 million. Notice the gender games at work here. We don’t know if he gets $40 million, say, and she only $20 million. Pay inequality […]
