Orange Julius Caesar killed Spartacus

Can we impeach the sonofabitch again?
This time for homicide?

He did it by giving that bloated scumbag Flush Limburger the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the same honor Kirk Douglas received from Jimmy Carter.

Douglas died today at his home in Beverly Hills. He was 103.

Interesting notes: He made his bones with “Champion,” based on a Ring Lardner story of the same name. And his favorite movie apparently was “Lonely Are the Brave,” which was based on an Ed Abbey novel, “The Brave Cowboy.” I had no idea that was his fave; I certainly liked both stories, the way I like all Lardner and Abbey stories.

And I loved me some Kirk Douglas movies.

Today, we are all Spartacus. Except for, well, you know. That guy.

    Spartacus, of course. And, Rosa Parks got a medal of freedom. I hope she sends it back. Reality TV in congress. Sickening.

    Don’t make many like him anymore.

    Rush Windbag – who has contributed more than this a-hole towards the divisions in the USA these days? He should have received a “Medal of Trumpdom” or perhaps “freedumb”? “Fat Donny”‘s lucky Nonna Pelosi didn’t whack him on the head from behind with her gavel instead of just tearing up the copy of his speech!!

      I’m no poly-sci guru, but just for shits and grins, I wish the Left ®️ would treat folks like Lush and tRump, not with hatred, but with apathy. Forget that they’re evil (and make no mistake, they are), and focus on their incompetence.

      Eg, Limp-bah … been talking for 2-4 hours a day for 40 years … so surely there’s one example of a conservative policy concept that he either developed himself or most effectively described. After 40 years, there’s gotta be an example of, “hey, explain cap and trade to me,” where everyone says, “good question, this Limburger guy put it best …” But there isn’t, because he’s grossly incompetent. Not wrong, not evil, not dangerous (all of which, again, are actually true), but just not good as the thing he’s getting paid to do, which is why his audience is maybe 2% of the country, and the bottom 2% at that.

      I think that’s the key to beating Trump. Don’t tell people how dangerous he is. Tell them how bad he is at his job. Three years, where’s my wall? Three years, and the wall plan still doesn’t even mention the Rio Grande. (Someone should ask Trump where the Armistad Reservoir even is.) Three years of draining the swamp, and he fired all the competent people and have retained the ghouls and crooks. Three years of repeal and replace, and he’s done neither. The list writes itself. And you can’t forget, every time you mention a failure, you gotta start with “Bless his heart, … “

        The problem is his supporters don’t care if he’s bad at the job – they knew he was nothing but a con-man when they voted for him. The other thing my wife always tells me is “People believe what makes them feel good.” and they feel good hearing Don the Con rant and rave about how the country’s going to hell in a handbasket and how he’ll turn the clock back to 1950 when all those non-white folks knew-their-place and garbage collectors made enough money so their wives could stay home and bake cookies/clean the house. Those same folks listen to Rush Windbag ranting and raving about the same stuff every day.

          I just listened to the first minute of his victory speech. I had to turn it off before I lost my breakfast pancakes. Asshole is delusional. The cult continues.

        • SAO' Says:

          I’m going to split the difference here … I think a good hunk of his supporters voted for him solely because it would piss off the libs the most. They have become the “burn it all down” party, which is why pointing out how bad he has been is a feature, not a bug, to the 24% who voted for him. So the Jedi move is to emphasize that they’re not even good at being bad. Bad would be building the wall, but he couldn’t do it. Bad would be repealing Obamacare … strike two.

          When you put the last three years into a spreadsheet, it’s mostly zeroes, nulls, empty cells. He’s been annoying as hell, but in terms of actual accomplishments, he’s mostly just played golf.

          Here’s on scorecard:

      Rush announced that he has lung cancer. I hope he has better medical insurance than most of his listeners.

    This might be a good time to rewatch Paths of Glory (not that there’s ever a bad time).
