Recently I have been asked by a couple of people: whence Kenneth, the guy I’m always yelling at in my blog.  I thought I had already written about his origins here, but I can’t find it and I need a blog post for today anyway, so here we are. In 1986, CBS broadcast journalist Dan […]

What am I not getting?

This is a serious question: what is the Current Embarrassment trying to pull? I know, we could spend the rest of the night giving examples of his unprecedented lying, but let’s do just one: at last night’s rally in Phoenix, he enthused (via Twitter, of course) about a “beautiful turnout of 15,000 people” at his […]

The Big Lie

Of all the idiotic lies the Current Occupant Embarrassment has told, the most dangerous is one of his first and biggest: that “3 to 5 million illegal votes were cast” in the election, costing him the popular vote. Only one of the amygdala-based lifeforms (whose very life depends on having enough fear to drive their […]

Through the Looking-glass

My internet server has a spam filter on it and catches about 100 spam emails a day.  It’s very good—I’m actually quite surprised when I get a spam message in my inbox these days. However, it will also occasionally snag emails from people or companies that I want to hear from, and so when I […]

Bless their hearts

Now that the election is over, the amygdala-based lifeforms are having to find other existential perils to fuel their daily crisis. Here’s one mother who has gotten creative in her efforts: Homeschool mom crushed by ‘moral dilemma’ after son sees male CoverGirl wearing makeup Oy, as we say in my neck of the woods. The […]

I don’t get it.

I truly don’t understand why Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan aren’t actively campaigning for Hillary Clinton right now. Let’s face it, I think they have long since realized they personally would be better off if she won the election.  After all, what are the possibilities? Trump is an enormous drag on the downballot races.  At […]

I wish to confess.

I’ve done a thing. Whether it turns out to be a Thing remains to be seen, but if it does, I want this on the record. Donald J. Trump, the Republican candidate for President of the United States, has been saying outrageous, jawdropping shit since the very beginning of his campaign: Mexican immigrants are rapists; […]
