With CPAC members today apparently waving Russian flags, recall the sheep, in a 180 turnaround, bleating at the end of Animal Farm:

"Four legs good; two legs better."

Joseph Ernst

"Performance". Good choice of words.


The Republican Party reminds me of Pogo saying "Having lost sight of our objective, we redoubled our efforts."

I thought about watching the speech but to be honest my mind is not as agile as it one was. I did not think I could parse a Trump speech in real time. I have become somewhat dependent the English language as an exact tool for conveying precise thoughts. I do not speak Trump. So I read the transcript.

Having checked with a couple of the nearest people to determine whether or not I was exhibiting signs of a stroke and this not being the case I am able to conclude that Donald Trump is a fucking idiot.

"Commonly recognized symptoms include irritability, loss of ability to concentrate, delusional thinking, and grandiosity,” said Beutler. “Memory, insight, and judgment can become impaired. Insomnia may occur. Visual problems may develop, including the inability of pupils to react to the light. This, along other ocular pathology, can result in photophobia, dimming of vision, and squinting. All of these things have been observed in Trump. Dementia, headaches, gait disturbances. and patchy hair loss can also be seen in later stages of syphilis.”


It's masterful trolling:


Whether or not he has STD, thanks for bringing his 1997 statement to my attention:

“I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world,” he told Howard Stern in 1997, referring to his dating life the decade prior. “It is a dangerous world out there—it’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam era. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave solider.”

Such a sense of entitlement. Such an inappropriate comparison. Such a lack of respect for those who did have to serve in Vietnam.


Perfectly captured. This is a keeper, like the "grab 'em by the pussy . . ." etc. to remind us of the party of personal responsibility and the party of family values.

How funny. I just used to say that as an off handed joke about him. I suppose his deferments from the Vietnam war may have saved him from the. V. C., But but not the v.d.
