Random Electoral Observations

Donald Trump and Joe Biden both seem to have proportionally small hands, although Trump’s are obviously the smaller, as one can see from any photo of him together with his wife, whose hands appear considerably longer than his. Nevertheless, both men are famous for being incapable of keeping their little hands to themselves.  That’s shorthand, if you will, for the basic problem of...

Disasters All Around

According to a headline from The Hill, “Biden slams Trump for calling Fauci a ‘disaster.’” On its face, Biden’s “slam” seems fair. After all, who is the bigger disaster, the government apparatchik who has spent the past eight months on a personal glory tour, deliberately stoking mass panic and actively promoting tangible tyranny for the sake of aggrandizing his own little ego, or...

When Worms Play Politics

Ben Sasse, at a very young age, has already risen to the top of both the academic and political pyramids — proof positive that he is a slimy glad-handing dandy and self-promoting double-talker of the highest order. Today’s big headline in Republican implosion news is that Donald Trump has gone on a Twitter tirade against Sasse, after “leaked audio” (please!) from a telephone...

Joke of the Day (Manly Version)

The Washington Post, in perhaps the funniest framing of an election in the history of journalism, presents an analysis of the Trump-Biden presidential race as a clash of two visions of masculinity. I know, I know, and I apologize if you happened to read that sentence with your mouth full. First, in full (and admittedly fair) mockery mode, the Post, a global communist...

Tomorrow’s Headlines (Loosely Based on Today’s)

Below, I provide an advance sampling of the mainstream news headlines you will be seeing over the next couple of days. I have deliberately omitted the opinion essays, which of course express bias by definition, in favor of limiting my survey to the unbiased, objective news reportage from the major sources. I hope this helps you sort out your reading priorities during this...

Finest Hour Ends Early

This will come as no surprise to anyone who has visited Limbo before, but I believe Donald Trump is an ignoramus, a coward, an insecure willowy fraud willing to say or do anything to keep people from disliking him, and a knee-jerk progressive without so much as a New York values minute to waste on such peccadilloes as “right and wrong.” As I...

The Value of Fear

Fear makes us irrational. Fear makes us susceptible to poor arguments and dangerous “offers” that seem to promise relief from the pain of our terror. Fear causes us to choose rashly and pursue counterproductive courses of action. Fear makes us forget our real, adult interests, including our interests in other people, in favor of an aggressive form of self-absorption. Fear can make us...

Cuckoo Headline of the Day

Here’s a beauty from the New York Times’ understudy as official newspaper of international communism, The Washington Post: “Infectious Trump briefly leaves hospital to greet fans as confusion continues over his health.” It is obvious the Post is preparing readers for the formal attempted murder charges undoubtedly coming against Trump for knowingly endangering the lives of millions of Americans by daring to leave...

Pandemic Musings

If every single Republican in Washington, D.C. over age fifty tests positive for COVID-19, and not a single one of them dies or even becomes critically ill, will the media still try to cite this spread as evidence that America needs more lockdowns, masks, social distancing, and mass hysteria to save us from this deadly contagion? That’s a rhetorical question, of course. In...

Trump family on death’s door

You heard it here first. Donald Trump is almost dead. Melania Trump is also nearly dead. Barron Trump, naturally, is dying too, along with every other person within a twelve mile radius of Donald Trump’s hair.  Yes, the horrifying truth is now out: Donald and Melania have tested positive for the Most Deadly Virus in the History of Pandemics. If we are even...
