A recently discovered passenger manifest from the Access Hollywood grand tour caught our attention. What’s so amazing is how many clowns you can pack into one jitney.
Insane Clown President, Roger Ailes RIP, Bill O’Reilly, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Clinton, Bill Cosby, Tim Murphy, Roy Price, John Besh, David Vitter, Hugh Hefner RIP, James Toback, Mark Foley, Dennis Hastert, Knight Landesman, George H. W. Bush, William Hall “Billy” Bush…Mark Halperin…Kevin Spacey…Dustin Hoffman…Brett Ratner…drip, drip, drip…
All the while, off in the swamp, Robert Swan “Bob” Mueller III’s clock keeps tick, tick, ticking.

During the 2016 campaign we kept being reminded to be patient, wait for the coming “pivot.”
To date, we’ve been counseled to be patient, history would conform, the office would demand the Insane Clown President act more presidential.
Figures right and left, people of good intent, keep telling us they’d like to see an end to the lies and the name calling and the tweets and the lies.
Trusted voices reiterate that we must summon our “better angels,” invoke our “shining city on a hill,” emphasize “we’re better than that.”
We’ve run out of time. We can’t afford to reduce our life and times to a torrent of tweets.
Ask Jeff Flake, ask Bob Corker. Unfortunately their “enough” falls short.

Foxes run in packs called skulks: Pence, [Price], Pruitt, Zinke, Sessions, Mnuchin, DeVos, Kelly, Graham, Perry, Carson, Chao, Pompeo, Huckabee-Sanders, Kushner, and Miller. We all need to be concerned about these foxes skulking around.
And where are the leaders who need to show leadership? Hey Mitch…hey Paul.
Despite the Insane Clown, Mike Pence political stuntman, Chuck Grassley, Richard Burr, Trey Gowdy, Devin Nunes, and the rest, Robert Mueller’s clock keeps ticking.

General Kelly’s conduct yesterday is a sad revelation showing how he enables a dishonest, morally reprehensible Insane Clown President.
And definitely check out Jennifer Rubin’s op-ed piece in today’s WAPost:
And make sure to revisit my September 8 entry The Con, A Failed Presidency, And Those Political Liquidators as well as my September 19 entry Snap Redux.
Fifty-five representatives from the newly independent American states were appointed as delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention, ostensibly to discuss possible improvements to the existing Articles of Confederation. They travelled to Philadelphia where they ultimately drafted the Constitution of the United States. These American elites came to be known as the Framers.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick protested against social injustice last year with a simple, silent gesture. He knelt for the national anthem before his team’s scheduled National Football League game. His gesture had nothing to do with disrespecting our flag or our military. His gesture was a sign of humility filled with yearning, not defiance. Eventually, other NFL players joined him, hoping to initiate a national conversation on race too long neglected
The Insane Clown, abetted by his political stuntman Mike Pence, co-opted Kaepernick’s gesture, used it to lie, distort, and dissemble the intent of Kaepernick’s original message. To what end?
The President and Vice President of the United States as they do almost on a daily basis, re/framed Kaepernick’s narrative to sow discord, contempt, ignorance, and chaos; this to camouflage once again their own incompetencies and misdeeds.
DATELINE NFL SUNDAY OCTOBER 15,2017: NFL players again took a knee during the playing of the national anthem. The Networks chose to exclude the playing of the anthem at the beginning of their broadcasts.
This all took place after a week in which the Insane Clown attempted to sabotage the ACA and the Iran deal, declared victory in the “war on coal,” was accused of”castrating” his Secretary of State, and purportedly was called a “f*****g moron” by his Secretary of State.
The rest of his high flying wrecking crew carried on: Sessions, Pruitt, Zinke, Haley, Mnuchin, and Pence, framing the story anew for a 21st century presidency.
The Insane Clown once owned the NJ Generals of the now defunct USFL. In court and out, the NFL bested him and his league.
Long simmering, he recently saw an opportunity to “even” that score. How much sweeter imagined now that the NFL has such a high percentage of black players.
Last Friday in Alabama, when the Insane Clown stoked the crowd, reprising his call on NFL club owners to “fire the SOBs,” his rage bubbled up, as if he were the great Oz himself, curtain drawn back. Immediately he snapped to, sucked his meanness and anger back in.
Tom Price, Ryan Zinke, Scott Pruitt, Roy Moore, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, healthcare, the budget, the debt ceiling, Puerto Rico and a hurricane or two; the NFL festering inside him for so long, took precedence.
This after all is a thoroughly 21st century presidency.
What an event/ful week.
My brain is self-combusting.
My willing suspension of disbelief is teetering, about to go down the tubes.
The week started with the Insane Clown reigniting his controversial tweet, teeing off on Hillary. (You’ve got to see it to believe it. It’s a visual definition of why misogyny is way different than plain sexism.)
Then, my ears got to burning when I heard about the two Washington lawyers who walked into a restaurant?
My eyes lit up when James Corden kissed Sean Spicer at the Emmys.
Turning up the heat, Robert Mueller added a 17th prosecutor to his team, a prosecutor who specializes in money laundering?
Tuesday, the Insane Clown lit a fire at the UN.
Meanwhile, Ivanka’s workshop is warming up, readying to design new uniforms for her Insane Daddy’s proposed July 4th military parade. He’s our very own “Rocket Man.”
The heat was also turned up a notch on Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen.
Everywhere, hats are on fire.
John Kelly’s reaction to the Insane Clown’s speech today at the UN. Is he a “Rocket Man” or not?
