My One and Only Trump Moment

Mark Meadows, a member of the falsely named House Freedom Caucus — falsely because, beginning in 2016, they speedily and collectively transformed themselves into the Congressional Demagogue Pom-Pom Girls — has, like almost everyone else who siphoned fame and glory (read shame and ignominy) out of the former president’s gasbag, written a book to salvage his reputation and rake in some easy money....

Dionysus for Literalists

If every social event, to be enjoyed to the fullest, must be accompanied by alcohol, this means that the real “event” is the drinking itself, while the social gathering is merely the accompaniment or sidelight. That is, if eating with friends, chatting with friends, camping with friends, and commiserating with friends, all have one thing in common — alcohol — then one is...

Irreconcilable Differences, Part Three

A few more ways that I am at odds with today: I would rather live in a world with many things to fear than in a world with nothing to fear, because the opposite preference represents the emotional state of a child — and implies the practical conditions of a slave. It is preferable to live in a society in which people care...

Through a Glass, Blurrily

This week’s celebrity Republican in the mainstream media is John Boehner, who has dragged himself out of his drunken stupor long enough to slur his way through some sort of memoir in which he aggrandizes himself and begs for media love by taking potshots at every other prominent Republican from his musty corner, as the loudmouth bum at the end of the bar...

Random Reflections: Suicidal Societies, Suicidal Sex Toys, Suicidal Spirits

Gee, who could have seen this coming? The wishy-washy, flip-flopping, finger-in-the-wind, what-will-make-people-like-me-today?, unprincipled, self-emasculated, small-handed sissy Donald Trump, after four days of defending his abandonment of the Kurds, and mocking them as they died, is now threatening sanctions against Turkey, demanding an immediate ceasefire, and declaring that he will not withdraw U.S. troops from Syria.  What will his millions of monkeys say now,...

Scanning the Kavanaugh Sex Crime Times in Search of 2,000 Dead Babies

Just for laughs, I scrolled down MSN’s home page this morning, scanning the headlines they have posted over the past few days. I quickly counted six headlines related to the “latest” rehash of Justice Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual misbehavior thirty years ago as a college freshmen, each of the six headlines directly based on one allegation regarding a teenage drinking party, a party at...

Weekend Reflections: Lies, Alcohol, More Lies

This weekend’s triptych of themes: why progressives lie; the secret of Trump’s success; why the left needs racism. Elizabeth Warren, giving a commencement address at Morgan State University, a primarily black college, told the graduating class that she has never experienced the racial bias that black people suffer — for which she has zero evidence, of course — because, she shockingly revealed, she...
