So. It has come to this.


Hunter S. Thompson wrote this back in 1972.

“This may be the year when we finally come face to face with ourselves; finally just lay back and say it—that we are really just a nation of 220 million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns, and no qualms at all about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable… Jesus! Where will it end? How low do you have to stoop in this country to be President?”


Check this out. Through my sources I was able to get a copy of a syllabus from a class at Trump University. These things are guarded like Fort Knox gold, so you can imagine how excited I am to take a look at this.

This is from a class called “International Business Policy 101.” Herewith is the entire class syllabus –

I got inspired by a conversation on Democratic Underground this morning.

Remember “The Music Man”? Robert Preston? “Seventy-Six Trombones?” And “Trouble Right Here in River City?”

Donald Trump is The Music Man. Professor Harold Hill – a self-proclaimed expert and braggart.

He’s a con man who stopped by to bilk some money, get some attention, and hit the road before people realized they were being conned. But the story blew up, he’s now fully in the limelight, and he can’t do anything but double down on the con – because there’s no way out that won’t pop the balloon he’s constructed. Unless there’s some scandal or controversy, he has no choice but to pump in more and more hot air to keep the con going.

“There were walls all around
But they never stopped no Mexicans
No, they never stopped them at all
Till there was meeeeee….”

Just once

Just once I wish President Obama would announce that he is adamantly opposed to people drinking chlorine bleach.

It would be so cool to watch all the Congressional Republicans lined up on the Capitol steps, defiantly chugging gallon jugs of Clorox.

This just in: Donald Trump announces his running mate.


Quote of the day

“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.” – Alexander Hamilton
