Trump Speaks to Congress

Process: I fucking hate this shit.  Paul Ryan and his entitlement reform can go suck a fucking fat cock.  Must be nice to know you won’t ever have to use medicare and social security because you’re wealthy. Let’s give even more tax breaks to the wealthy and cut the shit out of Social Security and Medicare.  I’m so glad we got…

Trump’s Administration Picks

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus Previous Job: Chairman of the Republican National Party Cons: This mother-fucker was about to be railroaded out of office like the charlatan he is.  He more or less ran the party into the ground, then eagerly licked Trump’s hands in desperation, even going so far as to back Trump up when it came to…

Round Table: Pick Your Seven

V-Day: You’re being banished to an island with no means of communication. You’re allowed to bring 7 movies, songs and books each. What will be your choices?

Jesus, a shot of the audience is immediately much more diverse DP: DNC music is SO much better than than the RNC music.  Not surprisingly. TIG: He’s…

The Willing Destruction of Self Belief in GOP Day 4 (Hybrid Post)

However, Trump’s speech last night needs to be unpacked a little bit more. One of the major things that has been passed around is the idea that the speech was fascist, and it is in fact an allusion made several…

Week in Review

Monday Closed for America’s Birthday Tuesday “Hillary unleashed ISIS across the Middle East!” From Politico DP: That’s…so absurd. Qmusing: I always like how America is responsible for all world affairs. TIG: It’s her email server that unleashed ISIS DP: I can’t believe that the FBI refuses to prosecute CROOKED HILLARY!
