Snap Redux

John Kelly’s reaction to the Insane Clown’s speech today at the UN. Is he a “Rocket Man” or not?

What Happened Happened

So Hillary, in 2016 it came down, as it always has, to you being a woman; but your defeat was set in motion years earlier

The “good old boys” were all over you from the get go, that pack of Pavlov’s dogs. So by the time 2016 rolled around, no matter how many good things you’d done over the course of a life devoted to public service, the “good old boys” had framed your story; a very low political calculation indeed. 

There was no good in the bad they’d concocted. And to show just how effective there twisted storytelling had been, we, your supporters, were their willing accomplices, wincing, then apologetic even as we voiced our support for you. 

Do you remember what happened?

Do you know what happened?

What do you think happened?

What happened was most certainly your fault.

What happened was way beyond your control.

What happened happened.

That’s what happened.


The Con, A Failed Presidency, And Those Political Liquidators

Lips pursed, Mitch McConnell and his gleaners crouch by the newly redecorated Oval Office, its door shut, waiting for table scraps from which they’ll try to fashion policy, then legislation.

Chief of enablers John Kelly dispenses those scraps at the pleasure of the current Oval Office resident, the Insane Clown President himself.

The enabler of all enablers, Mike Pence,  tosses off a “prayer” whenever he can.

Mar-a-Lago chocolate cake doesn’t really do it, though it seems to be sustenance enough for little Paul Ryan and his pie-in-the-sky agenda, content to wag his finger as he tweets how outraged he is in lieu of taking any substantive action. Ever.

Little Paul used to be the G(N)OP’s resident intellectual;  but unfortunately, the times they-are-a-changing.

Welcome to September, Mitch;  is this how you imagined the salvage business would be?

Must admit, you’ve gotten what you wanted all these years, a failed presidency.

Liquidation sale – going out of business – every thing must go.



Insane Praying Mantis


We’ve been told that if anyone can whip the Insane Clown’s West Wing into shape it’s retired United States Marine Corps general and former commander of the United States Southern Command John F. Kelly.

What if Kelly does whip the West Wing into “shape?”

Seems to me John Kelly was appointed for two reasons; first to provide cover to the West Wing, to ostensibly protect the sacrosanctity of the presidency, what we commonly call the oval office; but more significantly there’s his primary job, providing the appearance of “legitimacy” to the current occupant, the Insane Clown President.

With the Insane Clown’s actions last Friday night, we witnessed Kelly in full tilt mode as one of the Clown’s ablest enablers alongside the Pences and the Kushners of the world. That’s what bringing “order to the West Wing” means, bringing order under cover of last Friday’s marquee event, hurricane Harvey bearing down on Texas.

Someone needs to enlighten John Kelly that it’s difficult to hide in plain sight. John, you’re not at Homeland Security anymore. The mainstream media scrutinizes the fish bowl you find yourself in now much more intensely.

But with no political experience under his belt, the general is exhibiting a quick learning curve in the art of the spin.

Technocrat John Kelly works to render the electorate nothing more than bobbing “yes” head figurines on automobile dashboards. His aim, that we’ll start spouting the company line: finally a chief of staff who will whip the west Wing into “shape.”

How many times a day do we need to hear if anyone can whip the Insane Clown’s West Wing into shape it’s John Kelly?

How many times did it take before you started repeating if anyone can whip the Insane Clown’s West Wing into shape it’s John Kelly?


I yam what I yam.





The Bitter Machinations Of Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell pledged that “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”

And through the Merrick Garland nomination McConnell worked assiduously to do just that.

He then proceeded to tacitly support the Insane Clown for president in 2016 even though he believed the Clown was unfit for office.

Mitch McConnell has now reaped a bitter harvest. His choices during the Obama presidency paved the way for the Insane Clown President. McConnell thought he could control an individual who throughout his entire career manipulated and controlled a playing field of his own making. Mitch McConnell thought, in his own parochial way, that he would be able to set the rules and control an individual who was ignorant in matters of government.

This even when  dealing with the Insane Clown who is so canny in the ways of being crooked. The lie that has been McConnell’s bread and butter for so long stood no chance up against a world class liar.

Now the top Republican in the Senate is said to be privately questioning whether the Insane Clown can “salvage” his administration.

Finally, a failed presidency.

What leadership.

What symmetry.

But Mitch McConnell did gift us one thing, a generous  serving of schadenfreude.




Roll Call

Mr. McConnell & Mr. Schumer’s Senate.

Mr. Ryan & Ms. Pelosi’s House.

Mr. Robert’s Court.

The People’s republic.

Insane Clown unfit for office.

This week the Insane Clown off-gassed bully blow for bully blow with Kim Jong Un.

This week the Insane Clown tacitly gave the neo-fascist’s in Charlottesville a pass.

This past week the Insane Clown’s EPA (Scott Pruitt) clandestinely worked to despoil our environment.

This past week the Insane Clown took no  responsibility for anything, not even watching too much TV, tweeting too much, eating too much chocolate cake, or playing too much golf.


Robert Mueller’s “foursome” plays on.





I Started A Joke

Words matter. Harsh words spoken, raise questions. These days, harsh words need to be walked back. Yet, it seems all the rage to re-characterize harsh statements tossed off as “just joking.” 

Speaking before assembled law officers on Long Island the Insane Clown “jokingly” said “please don’t be too nice” to these thugs.

Sean Spicer claimed the Insane Clown candidate was “joking” when he encouraged Russian hackers to go after Hillary during the 2016 campaign.

During the campaign, the Insane Clown “jokingly” claimed in a tweet that President Barack Obama was the literal founder of ISIS.

The Insane Clown candidate also “joked” about some of his supporters assassinating Hillary Clinton.

“I hate some of these people (journalists), I hate ’em,” the Insane candidate “jokingly” told a Michigan crowd. “I would never kill them. I would never do that.”

Anthony Scaramucci claimed his expletive filled tantrum was merely him “joking.”

Wealthy GOP donor Ed Butowsky claims he was only “joking” to FoxNews investigator Rod Wheeler about the Insane Clown being kept in the loop on the Seth Rich murder story.

Think Mueller’s “joking” as he convenes his new grand jury?

Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum Stuff

We’re smack in the middle of a war of the words. The conman of the century believes he can make us all believe anything his thumbs conjure up in the “4 AM of his nightly soul.”

Anthony Scaramucci is the Insane Clown’s “tell.” We now have a bona fide wise guy in the White House. The Insane Clown brought in this goombah to verbally whack his chief-of-staff.

Who then has the courage to evict the Insane Clown and his spawn?

The Insane wazir exhibits his full nasty, letting little Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III twist in the wind. Little Jefferson, himself a nasty piece of work, loves coming to work, “his mandate” to return our beautiful land to a better time, pre-reconstruction. Hellzapoppin.

Concurrent with the Insane eagle scout’s twisted rap jam at the Scout’s jamboree, his mini-me, Jared, showed his own twisted chops behind closed doors. Politically “bi-polar,” Jared, deemed a political “novice” yet entrusted with the nation’s top security clearance, showed he may not be as smart as he fancies himself. Try to make sense out of the Jared Kushner nonsense. And yes, was Jared recommended hiring Scaramucci to the Clown.

Make no mistake, the shootout in this hall of mirrors is coming down the pike.

Once cleared of these vermin, the White House will need to be tented and sprayed.

Tweet it loud, I’m insane and I’m proud.


inspired by true events

We’re living in an age of prohibition, a prohibition of the truth. We’re living in an age of alternate realities. Master distillers of the big lie, loyal to an Insane Clown President, spread disinformation throughout our nation and the world. Deep denial trumps the “deep state.”

Their lies are clogging our airwaves, corroding our cables, polluting the water we drink. It’s that precious bodily fluid thing again. They call it alt. reality.

Pence, Bannon, Kushner, Conway, Spicer, Huckabee Sanders, Price, Sessions, Carson, DeVos, Perry, Pruitt, Junior, Zinke and that slinky blonde dame, Ivanka – dissemblers all – it’s that old looking up at the clear blue sky routine, telling us we’re living under a dark cloud foisted on our nation by a dark man, a man who was not even born here, does not even worship our god.

Halleluyah, we are all bums.

We’re living in a world where to lie is to be a “truth teller.” We congregate around oval tables and practice mass hypnosis. We neither see nor hear the ticking clock. Ends justify means.

Anyone in their right mind would not want this lot laying their hands on them. Jim Jones and his cool-aid mix have nothing on this bunch.

Been there, drunk that.

Shout halleluyah, hal/le/lu, we are all bums.

Welcome to the Clown’s brave new world. Six months in and everyone is lawyered-up.
