We’re living in the Republican Party’s Altered States – REBLOG – Shinbone Star

A good summary with more facts than I can muster. I’m always glad when someone else writes these articles because I get depressed looking for facts. Here I am in the middle of the muck and mire. I was sure retirement would be easier than working!

These days, I think I’d rather work 10-hour days than deal with the stress of our current so-called government.

THE SHINBONE STAR

Greetings from Earth Two!

The Republican Party has gradually divorced itself from the real world and taken a not insignificant amount of the population with it. There will be no witnesses or evidence in the Senate Trial of Donald Trump because on Earth Two, we don’t need no stinking witness.

With the Senate impeachment trial in its second week the sight of Ken Starr decrying the politicization of the impeachment process is hilariously terrifying. Starr is the guy who worked to impeach a president who lied about being a sexist pig, but now defends a sexist pig who was elected president because he is a xenophobic, racist and sexist pig.

Alan Dershowitz declared anything done by the president is okay if It was done for . . . oh, bullshit.

Pat Cippolone is straight up LYING and Pam Bondi is still pushing a conspiracy theory about the Bidens and Burisma…

IF IT AIN’T BROKE … Marilyn Armstrong

Fandango’s February Expressions #3 If it ain't broke, don't fix it. You mean like our 31-year-old furnace that works but is guaranteed to give up the ghost any time now? Or the back deck that's propped up in one corner because it was falling off the house? I think you could definitely say this about software … Continue reading IF IT AIN’T BROKE … Marilyn Armstrong

WHEN THEY GO LOW … Reblog from Fandango

What a pity we don’t seem to be able to just tell the truth. This isn’t digging up dirt. Trump has dug up plenty of his own dirt. There’s no need for someone else to go digging.

His obvious lapses into either dementia or maybe mini-strokes is no minor issue. Ronald Reagan was suffering from Alzheimer’s and his wife, Nancy, ran the last years of his presidency. We didn’t find out until after he left office. Woodrow Wilson suffered a massive stroke and his wife ran the country for a couple of years.

This is not the first time this problem has arisen and both other times it was covered up. His mental health — or lack thereof — is terrifying. This man has the nuclear codes and a brain full of marshmallows. Do we want Melania running the country?


 

This, That, and The Other

Bill Maher has suggested that the Democrats need to fight as dirty as the Republicans do. The Dems are too nice, he says. They follow all the traditional rules of politics. The Republicans, on the other hand, lie and cheat and make their own rules. And they play by their own dirty rules.

So Maher and his Real Time with Bill Maher staff put together this commercial that they think the Dems should air. And you know what? I couldn’t agree more! It’s time for the Dems to start playing by their own rules too. Otherwise, America is fucked!
