Possibility of Trump nom sinking to his human depth

No matter how robust his polling numbers with hard core tea party Republicans who love his crass, idiotic bellicosity, Trump becomes less of a threat to the Republican establishment and less likely to get the nomination with each Archie Bunker moment.

Each day brings a new low of behavior from this ugly, ugly person, mocking a reporter’s disability, like Rush Limbaugh mocked Michael J. Fox’s condition several years back. Trump casually, thoughtlessly, mocked the reporter’s physicality, like some retrograde comic doing a “retard” routine 20 plus years ago. Sure, his people don’t care. Sure, like all of the other societal politenesses that he labels “PC” and his followers call censorship, they’ll embrace this as another thing that you could do when America was great. Like calling someone a “retard!” When did that word become like nigger? Why are liberals taking my favorite words away? Consarnit!

The TV talking heads can say this won’t hurt him either, like the other daily lies, fascist pronouncements and asshole attacks on people doing their jobs, but it does. It does lower his ceiling of potential support. It does make him less and less credible as someone who could go to the convention and broker a nomination, no less win one outright.

His antics make him untouchable to anyone outside of his core. He doesn’t have to implode and crater, as many expected him to do by now. He just has to continue to be Trump, ie. a nasty, lowlife cretinous creep with no intellectual integrity and a tendency towards casual hatred, to blunt any possibility of him being taken seriously enough as a legitimate contender.

Shame really. If he could have just dialed it down to an 8, he could have been something and really crippled the GOP. But he’s keeping it up at a cartoonish 11 and giving hate challenged lightweights like Cruz and Rubio hope.

Next Nov. will be another 53-47 affair, with delusional GOPers repeating their questioning of the polls and another post-mortum report that will reiterate that they should have nominated someone MORE conservative, but they should, overall, be more inclusive, blah, blah, blah.

The GOP is the Seinfeld party – they don’t learn, nobody grows and they’re about nothing.

Fried Cornish Game Hens, Good


Made 4 hens in 48 minutes (12 minutes each) frying in peanut oil in a regular pot on an induction burner, rather than a huge turkey in a massive fryer. Then a little Rosemary, a little Montreal steak seasoning, now that’s good eats!

I barbecued some ribs with my 20 ingredient barbecue sauce. Lobster stuffing and lobster mac & cheese. Made enough food for 20 people. On the downside there were only 7 of us. Math is hard. Finding room for all those leftovers is the price we pay.

So what did Isis do while I was cooking? Surely  they destroyed all humanity.

Naively, I think if they tasted my ribs, they’d realize life is good.

It cannot be overemphasized…

…that it should make the most sense to “America is exceptional” conservatives that making these kids Americans is the best protection you have. You can school ’em up and in a few years, in our present economy, they’re working behind the counter at McDonalds and enlisting in the army to go fight at the old homestead.

Make them American and the worst is they’ll protest for citizenship (if the GOP keeps blocking reform).

If you cast them to the winds, homeless, hungry, desperate, you make potential radicals willing to strap a bomb on them. Boom!

By the way… guns?

I had posted how one certain cro-magnon from TX realized how easy it was to get guns in TX and decided that well, that means they certainly can’t let Syrian refugees in there! That’s just science.

Amazing how Syrian 5 year olds are so dangerous we have to keep them out of the country, but guns should be widely available at every 7-11.

Syrian toddlers have killed how many Americans?

Whereas American toddlers have killed Americans, with guns.

Roughly once a week this year, on average, a small child has found a gun, pointed it at himself or someone else, and pulled the trigger. Boys are disproportionately likely to do this: I could find only three cases where a girl under the age of 4 wounded someone with a gun. In 13 of the 43 total incidents, a child’s self-inflicted injuries were fatal. In two other cases, another person died after being shot by a toddler: a father in Alabama, and a 1-year-old in Ohio.

If Syria is smart they’ll ban American kids.

Have I said that there’s no end to the stupid?


What about the children…

If you are Christian and American it’s just good politics to be un-Christian and un-American.  Despicable overreaction that negates everything you say you’re committed to is our brand.

There’s no shortage of politicians who are very willing to take a “crisis” like what happened in France, and scream and yell about national security and gnash teeth because the Chris Cilizza’s in the media will always laugh and pat them on the head, enabling them by saying it’s “good politics.” And that may be the most disgusting thing of all and is certainly why we are so fucking dysfunctional and can’t have nice things.

Cilizza’s record of enabling goes back a long way. These are some of his recent greatest hits:

  • It was “smart politics” when John Boehner pushed through a budget deal as he was resigning, so that Paul Ryan could play “bad cop.”
  • It’s “good politics” for House conservatives to oppose their leaders.
  • It was “smart politics” when Carly Fiorina mau-maued CNN into including her in their debate.
  • It’s “good politics” for Republican presidential hopefuls to go after Hillary Clinton.
  • Donald Trump’s loudmouthed bluntness can, of course, be “good politics.”
  • Attacking the media is “good politics” for national Republicans.
  • When faced with crises like the Baltimore riots, it’s “good politics” for politicians to show empathy.
  • It’s also “good politics” for Republicans to pretend that the media does Hillary Clinton’s bidding.
  • It’s “smart politics” when Republicans avoid discussing abortion in favor of talking about the economy.

“Think what you will” of Republican xenophobia and hate-mongering toward Syrian refugees (especially the Muslims among them), but it “sure looks like a political winner.”

Hacks like Cilizza care nothing about policy, only covering the horse race with glib “smartest guy in the room” elan. As John Oliver would say, “FUCK THAT GUY! FUCK THAT GUY TILL HE’S BLUE IN THE FACE!”



In other news…

What?  There’s other news than whatever is going on in France and the Middle East. I thought they got that suspended until every CNN and MSNBC employee got their free trip to Paris.
