Mooned again.

The best take on special counsel Robert Mueller’s report so far comes from Kevin Drum at MoJo, who writes: “The truth is that we barely know anything more today than we did a week ago. It’s likely there’s a reason for that.”

Runner-up is from Charlie Pierce, who observes: “In fact, the basic overriding result of [Attorney General William] Barr’s summary is that the whole matter now has been dumped into the laps of a divided and hyper-partisan Congress in such a way as to guarantee that the Congress will be more divided and more hyper-partisan than ever before. The Democratic House will hold hearings and the Republican Senate will yell about Hillary Clinton. The Internet will be indiscriminately insane for the foreseeable future.”

For what it’s worth, my own uneducated guess is that our keepers have decided that “government of the people, by the people, for the people” is the people’s problem. We shit the bed, we do the laundry. No indictment, no impeachment, and open a window, f’chrissakes. It stinks to high heaven in here.

Absent an abrupt change of course based on the Mueller report, the Donks seem to be betting that they can clean Il Douche’s clock in the 2020 election, which sounds an awful lot like drawing to an inside straight. Or maybe it’s more like the kind of lame-ass, no-balls, break-even poker playing that sends you home neither richer nor poorer while the big boys take all the pots.

Are they still hunting, Elmer Fuddlike, for that mythical Moderate Republican, hoping they can bag enough of these fabled centrist unicorns — without hurting the MAGA dummies’ fee-fees — to take the White House and the Senate, pad their edge in the House, and govern free of interference from the Flying Monkey Caucus?

Fuck me running. I wish I had some magic beans to sell these rubes. I could use a more reliable income stream. This hand looks more like a foot.

In the meantime, we all could use some more information. There’s an election coming up, or so we hope. Release the damn report, shitheels. We paid for it, and in more ways than one, too. It’s ours.

    I’d say redact any NSI or other defamatory personal information that is not going to go to court (names, that is) and release the report.

  2. Pat O'Brien Says:

    The Boy Scout passed the ball to Barr, who did exactly what Trump hired him to do. No collusion of the campaign with Russians? I’ll accept that from Mueller. No obstruction of justice? I won’t accept that from Barr or Rosenstein. The only thing I can’t understand is why Mueller didn’t indict Donny jr. That meeting, for the intent junior put in an email, violated federal law. BOHICA indeed. Oligarchs one, democracy zero, again.

    I agree with Khal with one caution, the dumpster has complete control of classified information.

      That distant thunder you hear? It’s a jillion lawyers galloping to court. Look for a huge earnings spike in the crucial BMW/beach home industries.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        You think Seven or DeRosa will get a spike in sales? Cycling is the new golf, right?

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        Zwift, mebbe. Indoor cycling is the new cycling is the new golf.

        • Derek Lenahan Says:

          I would invest in Zwift from what I have seen. Just replaced a (no brands please) very nice, VERY expensive tubeless road tire that had blown off it’s carbon rim from overheating indoors. Amongst their new purchases? A new brand of sealant, new color, in case it were to happen again. Household has multiple wheels set up with training tires and various cassettes but they don’t ride as nice.

    • khal spencer Says:

      That’s true. Dump can classify or he can release since as POTUS, he is the chief Federal classifier and declassifier under E.O. But if it is as bad as some are guessing, I would expect a leak in a few days.

    The Asshole just got re-elected yesterday…

    • khal spencer Says:

      Not convinced of that but if the Donks don’t concentrate on policy and come up with a better candidate, we are indeed fucked.

      Great discussion between Bill and Irshad Manji on Friday about identity politics. If you missed it.

  4. Gary Burmette Says:

    Yep, looks more of the SOS, spewing out of all outlets…
    I’m moving to Finland tomorrow
    I just can’t take anymore

  5. larryatcycleitalia Says:

    My move outta Donald Trump’s ‘Murica is looking better every day. After a week there for a recent visit I dunno when I’ll be back…especially if Don the Con gets re-elected in 2020.
    Impeach the MOFO already!
