The sausage is made

fatso-WTF-2God damn. Another long shift in the barrel, including three-plus hours of Live Update Guy, one “Shop Talk” cartoon, and one “Mad Dog Unleashed” column.

Still, some people had worse days.

• The House GOP managed to fall into a barrel of tits and come out sucking its thumb.

• Der Trumpenführer invaded Washington and it went over about as well as the Russian thing did for that other guy.

• Roger Ailes seems badly in need of a lock on his zipper (the filthy old shitbag may find that it’s better to keep rubbing his little weenie all over the news business than trying to stick it into actual, you know, like, women, an’ stuff).

• Albuquerque seems to be a giant open-air, free-range prison populated entirely by killers, thieves, firebugs, rapists and burglars.

• And don’t get me started on cops killing people just because they can.

    There are literally hundreds of potential Democratic nominees and yet the one that is preordained to be selected as nominee is Hillary Clinton. Granted, she may have used Bill as a sock puppet in their past administration but I don’t think I ever saw anyone vote for her for that position.

    Granted the junior senator from New York who had no significant legislation produced. Now please remind me how many bills she initiated? How many committees was she chair of?

    Unfortunately Madam secretary may have a place in Webster’s dictionary under corruption. If you look at the response to the disaster in Haiti where her organization and contracting obtained hundreds of millions of dollars and her personal fortune was amassed and yet the people of Haiti are still homeless.

    Another question: When is the last time you came out of a government organization feeling is though you are actually helped? When’s the last time you dealt with Social Security? Did you find those folks really gave a crap about you or are you just another number?

    Holy shit Mad Dog, where to start?

    Cav pushed the Badger down a notch in the record book.

    Billiary has really bad judgement about protecting classified information and managing networks. But, she has great political judgement. Ryan lost. So did the Turtle. I guess she is all we have, which is really pitiful.

    Flake said he is “the Arizona senator who didn’t get captured.” I guess somehow I should think that is a good thing he did. But, I don’t because the man has no cojones to just say he would rather vote for Bozo the Clown that the Dumpster. Me too.

    You folks in Duke City need more guns, obviously. Expect LaPierre to show up soon to talk to the “good guys” with guns.

    If you get pulled over, put your hands out the window, shit your pants, and start crying, then maybe they will let live another day.

    “When a country is in chaos, patriotism is born” True dat, we got plenty of fucking bumper sticker, flag waving patriots around these parts.

        Oh, boy. You know what the answer to that is. I will stand for VP if Patrick will run for the Head Kahuna and you volunteer as the chief science czar and Secretary of Nuclear Disarmament. Now, what will be the theme for the inauguration? Before you suggest anything, remember that Patrick is on the wagon. Gotta be a bike tour involved somehow.

      • Hurben Says:

        How’s about a:

        “Pedal for Prez PoG” tour?

        Platform pedals only so as to fit in with the pedaling platform..

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        Good idea Hurben. We need some bumper stickers.

    • khal spencer Says:

      Pat, you need to run for President. Someone who has a sense of humor as well as a sense of proportion. God help us after this election.

      Wasn’t sure what you were posting about. I came here before I read the news. The divisions in this country keep getting deeper. As the band “Chicago” said, “the whole worlds watching.”

      • khal spencer Says:

        That was a hell of a news story to wake up to. I’m pretty cynical, but sometimes atrocities shock me. This was one of those times.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        I had to go to sleep with that one. A little short of Zs this morning as a consequence. No more reading The New York Times via iPad before bedtime.

      • khal spencer Says:

        Only reason I escaped hearing about it last night was I chaired the county transportation board meeting after work, ate dinner at about 8:30, walked the dogs around the block, and crashed and burned. Thankfully, I didn’t hear about it last night. But what a fucked up way to start the day.

        We need to disarm this country. 300 million guns and way too many people with a grudge who think firearms are Maslow’s Hammer.

  6. Dale Says:

    The last rational human to run in a Republican primary was John Huntsman four years ago, and he got 0.44 percent of the vote.

    Thursday I cried before going to work at the bike shop for twelve hours. Cried while working listening to the audio of the Philando Castile murder and Alton’s sun breaking down on Democracy Now! Went home, cleaned up and occupied an intersection with newly woken activists. As a cyclist it is strange to hear a car honking in support of your presence. After or group dispersed at 3:30am I sat for some time in front of the governor’s mansion. Watched the media vans set-up as the sun rose. At one point a lawn sprinkler started up from beneath one of the tents and caused a reporter to do the “Shit! Shit! Shit!” Jig.

    Last Saturday I listened to “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me” on NPR. The celebrity guest was Norman Lear. When he was asked about getting to the age of 93 healthy and happy, he responded, and I am paraphrasing, that the two most important words are over and next. When something is over, it’s over, and you go to the next thing. If you stretch a hammock between over and next, that is living in the moment. After the news that last few days, I went for a ride this morning and climbed in the hammock. It was so comfy that I missed my turn around point and didn’t realize it until I was 1.5 miles further down the road. Nice.
