Checks and imbalances

Speaking as an angry white man, all these angry white men are starting to piss me off.

That eternal sense of entitlement was on full peacock display in yesterday’s Cirque du SoWhat? over whether the mendacious and elusive Bart O’Kavanaugh can stand erect long enough to make it to the Supreme Court.

The well of privilege seems bottomless from the top, and these angry white men will continue to draw from it until the bucket finally comes up filled with their obituaries.

Then, I suppose, their angry white sons will inherit the family business.

That business is bankrupt, but failure is for lesser men, and women. The angry white man picks himself up using our bootstraps and plows forward, like the dolt who, when told that he’s penniless, broke, flat busted, says, “That can’t be true. I still have checks in my checkbook.”

Actually, it’s our checkbook. And one of these days the angry white man’s mouth is going to use it to write a check his ass can’t cash.

But I don’t think we’re there yet.

The angry white man still has that big orange credit card we gave him back in 2016. And he’s gonna use that to buy shit the country doesn’t need and can’t afford until we take it away from him.

Remember your Martin Luther King: “We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”

    Ugh. Yesterday reminded me of a relative who refuses to admit that in that relative’s misspent youth, there was plenty of booze, drugs, and Weekends That Somehow Got Forgotten present.

      Yeah, I have a few of those swinging around in the family tree myself.

      I’d like to see Bart O’Kavanaugh’s modern-day liquor bill. I’d say by the Irish roadmaps on his cheeks that he enjoys more than the occasional “lite” beer.

        There were a few parties that I would want to forget if I could remember them in order to forget them.

        Barrett or Hardiman are anyone’s choice as conservatives. Seems to me that whether or not he deserved it, old Bart is like that concept in Holy Grail–way too much shit on him to be king. Or in this case, SCOTUS justice.

        Latest is that Flake is wavering.

        “This is all a gentlemen’s and women’s agreement,” says Grassley. Yeah, right. Grassley ain’t no gent, and The Turtle ain’t neither. Better check the signature on any documentation. Keep an eye peeled for “Haywood Jablowme.”

    Irish roadmaps? I resemble that remark!

    It’s hard to be disappointed when you expect nothing. We got less than nothing yesterday. The only reason they are rushing is because they know he is guilty. And impeachment is much harder than a criminal indictment, if one is even possible with the statute of limitations on rape and sexual assault in Maryland and DC.

    Look on the bright side. We may have a SCOTUS judge who knows what “boof” and “devil’s triangle” mean.

    Timely and good quote from MLK.

    They’ll promise Susan Collins balloons or something for her vote and give Lisa Murkowski a bridge to nowhere to brag about while all the shriveled white d–ks in the Rethug party vote po’ wittle Bwett into the job he’s been entitled to since..well…since birth I guess?
    Then let’s hope enough are as “Mad as hell and are not gonna take it anymore!” about this chicanery in November. I’m sticking around to vote in person, then getting on a plane outta here the next day!

    Go Jazza!
