Summer is coming

One rarely finds a rose at the bottom of a barrel.

The Adobe Throne is liable to be a tad toasty today. It was already 70 at 6 a.m., and we’re expecting a high in the 90s.

The past couple of mornings I’ve been opening windows and doors to let the cool morning breeze wash the stuffy night out of El Rancho Pendejo.

A bit of a breeze seems to be blowing in DeeCee as well. I see one bloated, belligerent bullshitter is headed for the exit, though the Maester of Mendacity remains. His dragon seems to be in a bit of a pickle, too, but there’s no sign she’ll be flapping off into the sunset anytime soon.

And even if she did follow Sneery Spice into the private sector, which none of these people ever really left, would it really matter, with Beelzebozo’s Mickey D farts stinking up the Oval Office?

We’re not on the good side of the ill winds, no matter how many windows get flung open.

    I do recall a relevant song…

    Are they rats leaving a sinking ship? I was subject to the Hatch act for 34 years. Millions of other people were as well during that time. You get briefed on it periodically during your career. It ain’t rocket science. But, when you are above the law……….

    Perhaps the only one of the Trumpanzees I despise more than “Sneery Spice” is KellyAnne Cornflakes. “Lock her up!” seems to be about right, amirite? Spice seems a shoe-in for AR guv while Cornflakes can get a job scaring the crows out of fields anywhere in the world once she’s outta the clink. Only the best people – MAGA!

    Is that sabre rattling I hear in the Middle East? Iran is the new “enemy”. Even though it’s gotten to be predictable, it’s a time-tested GOP tactic to start a war when they’re down in the polls. How many lives will this one cost?

      Pompeo wants to get his Rapture on and Bolton wants to make up for missing out on his chance to win Vietnam. This Gulf of Tonkin act is getting real old.

        Yep, the lack of credibility of everyone in this administration casts some serious doubt on any of their claims. I’m not saying they’re wrong, but let’s see some real proof…..not the kind of dog-and-pony show that was presented to the UN about Iraq back-in-the-day.
        Meanwhile, Chris Froome managed to slam into a wall the other day, making LeTour’s outcome for 2019 perhaps more interesting?

        • Pat O'Brien Says:

          Hitting the wall, literally, at 34mph! Ouch! I don’t know if I would get back in the saddle again after that. But, I am an old guy that rides for fun. Beside, if I hit a wall on the way down Ramsey canyon I wouldn’t know how fast I was going; no computer of any kind on the bike.

          • khal spencer Says:

            Yow. I crashed in a paceline at 33 or 34 mph but at least didn’t hit a wall. Plus, that was back when I was 36 rather than 65. Made a mess of my collarbone but at least it wasn’t a compound fracture. I guess the good news is he will be able to race again.

        • Patrick O'Grady Says:

          That was a really bad get-off. Time trial bikes are the worstest. I was riding one when a gust of wind blew me off the shoulder and into the right traffic lane on I-25 near Santa Fe Back In the Day®.

          I wasn’t scared or nothin’, but somebody shit on my saddle.

          • larryatcycleitalia Says:

            The same guys win when these silly bikes are banned (like at some of the sandbox races) so I think they should forget about ’em. Why bother with such an essentially useless (and expensive) contraption that can be a real deathtrap in serious crosswinds?

          • Patrick O'Grady Says:

            The local Double Eagle TT Series has a “No-Aero” category, which I like. I enjoyed racing with my two time-trial bikes, but they were slightly scary and the same dudes who won the road races usually flogged me in the TTs too.

            I think the national Geezer Games is using their course for today’s time trial. The road races Tuesday and Wednesday are up in Khal’s neck of the woods.

    • Pat (not Plat) O'Brien Says:

      Supported the war in Vietnam but said “I have no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy. I consider the war in Vietnam already lost.” What to do? Just like captain bonespurs he decided to let some other poor bastard go die in his place. Typical gutless chickenhawk.
