Swamp things

To drain the swamp, one must become the swamp.
Or something like that.

A brief roundup as we circle the drain:

• Fake news: A truth deficit when it comes to trade.

• Brass balls? Nope, those are gold.

• I am the Walrus: Th’ hell is a walrus doing hanging around a swamp? I thought climate change was a Chinese hoax.

And now, the good news: That water bottle on your downtube? Turns out it’s the Fountain of Youth.

    “…..the Lunatics..are in the Hall”

  2. SO Says:

    // In our report on Trump’s speech, reporters Josh Dawsey, Damian Paletta and Erica Werner followed that anecdote with a curt assessment: “It was unclear what he was talking about.” Which is a fair statement. //

    That sums up everything.

  3. SO Says:

    // “We have right now 32,000 soldiers on the border between North and South Korea. Let’s see what happens.” //

    Forget everything else he has said.

    That singular statement in and of itself disqualifies him as Commander in Chief.

    Let’s see what happens. Brilliant strategy.

    I cannot believe a single veteran anywhere would vote for him. But then again, I did two years as a recruiter, and I know how many waivers we processed to get unqualified folks into boots.

  4. SO Says:

    // We will also note that Trump has something of a track record of telling stories in which details are misremembered, exaggerated or misrepresented. (There are also stories in which the entire conceit has proven to be false.) //

    Ya don’t say.

    Revolting. I’ll pick one thing: Zinke wanting a free pass from accountability and oversight and inviting critics because “‘I’ve been shot at.'”

      That pendejo. Another legend in his own mind. I recall reading somewhere that he didn’t draw a lot of water with the special-forces types. I got the impression he was a political officer even then.

    So, first, maybe Stormy Daniels takes this bozo down. That only happens if her pockets are very deep to pay for legal costs.

    Or, Russian oligarchs and mobsters call in the orange one’s loans. Not likely.

    Perhaps Mueller nails him. He will get close, and get other crooks close to the dumpster, but won’t be able to make it all the way to the white house in my opinion

    Congress will finally put country over personal wealth, power, and party. Nah, forget that one.

    Voters will wake up and realize this con man is trying to play the last old white guy standing and vote him and his cronies out. We shall see.

    Is the bar open yet?
