Nolo cojones

What a blockhead.

Gosh. Il Douche won’t mount any sort of defense as the House Judiciary Committee contemplates articles of impeachment.

Imagine my surprise.

I don’t suppose it has anything to do with knowing that he’d come out looking like a purse dog that went three rounds with the Hound of the Baskervilles.

No, better he should stay all bunkered up, hiding behind various knaves, minions, and varlets, tweeting like a hyperactive budgie, and wait until The Turtle can run interference for him in the Senate, where he has the home-field advantage.

I’d like to have the lip-balm and breath-mint concessions at that ass-kissing contest. A couple days of the big money and I could retire, is what.

    Trying to stay and informed citizen, but I got to turn the shit off for a while

    Good weekend here for a brain purge… We got the winter makers market in old town, hundreds of folks selling their handmade stuff, which, these days, seems to mean it’s either made out of hemp or it has CBD oil in it. Hell I ever brushed my teeth without CBD infused toothpaste, or walked my dog with a leash it wasn’t made out of hemp, I’ll never figure out.

    The kids got some caroling to do this weekend, and we have hockey practice on Sunday.

    But we can’t do any of that until we polish off this huge kettle of Yucatán style chicken, corn, and zucchini soup. Supposed to be off The summer menu, but for some reason it looks perfect tonight.

    Another two weeks of shortening days, and then hopefully sunnier days for all in every sense of the word. Well, not for all… Will leave the asshole in chief out of those sentiments

      Yeah, I’m trying mightily not to get sucked into this kabuki vortex. It’s a Rube Goldbergian device that will dump us right back where we were in 2016, staring down the double barrel of unpleasant choices we’d rather not have to make (“D’ye want the left barrel or the right?”). But sometimes I feel obliged to chime in just to get that particular voice out of my head.

    Washing down dinner with brewmaster Lauren Woods Limbach‘s latest private release. She’s been working some foeder magic, and after a lifetime of quaffing the darkest stuff I could find, I’m really digging her sours.

    Fort Collins’ New Belgium got together with Denver’s TRVU, and the Where I Leave/Where I Live collaboration is really special.

    Just got back from my friend’s house. Three Sierra Nevada pale ales, along with strumming the shit out of my Martin, and I had forgotten about donnie for a little while. Biden seems to know what buttons to push. Look at his latest campaign ad, which he put on twitter. But, is this the state of affairs in our leadership? Are two old white grouches fucking with each other on anti-social media the best we have to offer? And, another billionaire waits in the wings on the donk side to see if he can buy the office. Maybe it is time for this American experiment to end. At least this act of it.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Thing is, it’s all old white people with their palsied mitts death-gripping the levers of power. The Youngs need to rise up and fast before these bozos learn how to clone vibrant new bodies for themselves.

      They’ve already got all the money, they just need the technology. Then it’s Soylent Green for the rest of us.

    • SAO’ Says:

      The American experiment is fine. Trump is bad, but it’s like the double-reverse of the Lake Wobegon effect. You can’t have your above average presidents without folks on the bottom half. As bad as trump is, he’s a statistical tie with Filmore, A Johnson, Buchanan, and maybe Harding.

      I find it oddly confronting that we survived a guy who spent his last year in office drunk and talking to the pictures on the wall, and he’s actually ranking somewhere in the middle third.

      The good old days were never all that good, and this too shall pass.

        Siri has me sounding like I set the translator to Pennsylvania Dutch and then filled my mouth with Skippy Extra Chunky.

      • SAO’ Says:

        On the other hand, I totally get that I have the luxury of skipping down the sunny side of the street. The weatherman might say there’s only a 20% chance of snow, but that’s not much relief to the folks shoveling six inches of partly cloudy. Hard to just say “… and so it goes” when things aren’t going in your lane.

      • Larry T. atCycleItalia Says:

        One can only hope the program the Founding Fathers set up be allowed to work – either Don the Con gets kicked out via impeachment (unlikely unless the Rethugs can think about the long-term, not their strong point) or the USA voters come out in real numbers to support the other candidate next year. At this point I’m trying to give the dolts who voted for Donny a pass: We understand your protest vote, now stand with your feet a comfortable distance apart, reach way back, grab those ears and pull that head out of your a– and vote for someone who might actually do something good for you as well as for the rest of us. If Donny’s latest food stamp cruelty isn’t enough to motivate these morons, the USA is in really bad shape.

        “The good ole days weren’t always good, and tomorrow ain’t as bad as it seems.”
        Keeping the Faith by Billy Joel

        They had an interview with Biden on NPR this morning, and when asked about calling the guy a damn liar at a rally, he got pretty defensive and almost lost it again.

        As far as flashing back to 2016 next year…

        • Larry T. atCycleItalia Says:

          The old fart’s gonna blow a gasket if he’s not careful. We already have a jerk at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave…do we want to replace him with a guy who challenges his detractors to do pushups? Ol’ Joe might have the support of some black folks, but that ain’t gonna make up for the millions of young voters who aren’t gonna be inspired by Biden to go to the polls. Dunno who the best candidate IS, but it ain’t Ol’ Joe.

    Me old man used to oft say “engage brain before mouth”. Neither Biden nor Adolph Trump have the ability to do so. Along with me I’m afraid in these harrowing times. Still, we didn’t see legions of Obama’s cabinet, advisors and appointees marching off to jail/Federal court did we? So if Joe the Biden is not a dynamo at least his term might calm things down a bit. Mediocrity looks damn good right now. Like POG I’d gladly hand the youngsters the keys to the kingdom but maybe a VP slot is best for one of em. By god Joe the Biden better run with a progressive on the ticket.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      This whole “It’s my turn!” deal makes me nuts. Talk about a sense of entitlement. Gore, Kerry, Biden and Clinton v2.0 all suffered from it. “Mine! Mine! Mine!”

      I agree, I’d consider mediocrity trading up at this point, but only with a youthful progressive in the veep spot. These old white guys give me a pain, and I’m an old white guy, f’fucksake.

      • Herb from Michigan Says:

        I’m an even older white guy than you and we sure fucked things up didn’t we? I don’t remember it being any fun either at least the past we years. Or in either of our cases profitable. Furthermore, last I checked neither one of us has an ambassadorship or council position to lord over anyone. So the question is…what the hell did any of us old white guys get out of any of our s(elected) bunch of asshats in DC? Do I hear crickets?

        We was robbed!
