Who won the week? #MannyPeeple won the week!


Because Manny Peeple always wins the week.

Who is Manny Peeple?

He is President Stupid's most trusted adviser.
"Many people are saying that I am a very stable genius.”
He is President Stupid's dearest and most reliable friend.
"Many people feel the same way that I do."
And President Stupid's once again leaned hard on him this week.
"So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki."
So who is Manny Peeple?

He's the hero Murrica deserves, but not the one it needs right now. 


Behold, a Tip Jar!


Matthew Dowd is a Fundamentally Ridiculous Person


ABC News' chief political analyst continues his "Hugs for Hitler" campaign in the belief that if you and I would just be nicey-nice enough to monster and tyrants, the monster and tyrants will dry up and blow away.
The only two groups left in this country who continue to act as if they have no fucking clue what the base of the Republican party is really like are political journalists and the leaders of the Republican party.

By the way, did I mention that Mr. Dowd was the chief architect of the 2004 slash-slander-and-gay-bash George W. Bush re-election campaign?

And did I mention that ABC News now pays Mr. Dowd to be their chief political analyst?

Funny old world.

Rand Paul Running Away From Things: An Ongoing Series


As we have noted on this little blog many, many times, at the slightest provocation the easily-startled, over-caffeinated badger that lives on top of Ran Paul's head will run away from any democratic principle dragging the junior senator from the great state pf Kentucky right along behind it.

For example, this...
Rand Paul to travel to Russia after downplaying election meddling

And this:
And gets his good doggie pay on the head from Il Douche for doing so:




Rand Paul does this because "treason" is the Republican default setting.



Behold, a Tip Jar!

Snivel Chamberlain


Churchill is a smelly pirate whore.
Roosevelt is a gimp in a wheelchair, and probably a Jew.
Adolph is awesome.  So powerful.  So strong.

Attention Chuck Todd: Stay Out Of My Territory



h/t to Alert Reader "Unknown" for this suggestion


Mr. Todd has been one of the most appallingly reliable Both Siderist pimps anywhere in the American media ecosystem.  His capacity to choke down normal, human gag-reflexes and (for example) give monsters like Hugh Hewitt a national media platform is the #1 reason Comcast hired him.
CHUCK TODD: ...and my pal, radio talk show host, Hugh Hewitt, who, of course, has been the must-do for every presidential contender...
And given the wildly outsized influence Meet the Press has over setting the parameters of our national political discourse, a credible case can be made that no one has done more to enable the catastrophe which now engulfs us than ol' Shuck Todd.

So fuck right off Mr. Todd.  Just fuck right the fuck off.

Today In Both Sides Do It: David Fucking Brooks


First, a little refreshing music to take the taste of the ashes of democracy out of your mouth.

Then, on to business.

Specifically, a reminder that there is no Republican atrocity so blunt, clear and horrifying that Mr. David Brooks will not try to disperse blame for it equally to both sides of the political spectrum.

So today we learn that, sure, Donald Trump is very bad.  And existential threat of the first order.
Over the weekend, Trump ripped the partnership to threads. He said the European Union is our “foe.” On Monday, Trump essentially sided with Vladimir Putin, who has become the biggest moral and political enemy of the Euro-American relationship. Trump essentially dropped a project that has oriented American culture and policy for centuries. He pointed us to a world in which the central ethos is that might makes right.
But...
But remember, Donald Trump exists only to put a capstone on every poisonous trend that preceded him. It took many hands to kill the Euro-American bond.
Because, y'know, Both Sides:
Right-wing politicians and commentators began to use Europe as a stand-in for American liberals. It’s a bunch of godless socialists, just like those heretics in Berkeley and Cambridge. Euro-bashing became a unifying conservative trope.

Progressives fell into the poisonous trap of racialism. They looked at the glories of Aristotle, Shakespeare and Mozart, and the most interesting thing they had to say about them was that they were dead white males...
I'm not 100% sure what Bill Shakespeare would say about Mr. David Brooks of The New York Times, but I bet it would sound a helluva lot like this:
The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose!.
An evil soul producing holy witness.
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,.
A goodly apple rotten at the heart. .
O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!
-- The Merchant of Venice: Act 1, Scene 3
I can do this all day, Brooksie. 

All day.

World Gone Mad







The thunder you hear is the sound of the Beltway media that enabled this catastrophe racing for the lifeboats.

Vlademort



Vlademort:  Give me Harry Potter, and I shall leave Hogwarts untouched.  Give me Harry Potter, and you will be rewarded.

President Stupid:  Okey-dokey!

We Will Bury You



Having spent the back nine of his career getting rich helping to build the Republican monster machine, Brit Hume (a one-time Serious Journalist whose career died in state of mortal sin and who must now spend eternity using Roger Ailes jockstrap as a hammock over at Fox News) would very much like you to forget all that and instead notice how earnestly he pretends to care that one of his monsters is running amok.


Too late, Brit.  You and your kind built this monster and you will be buried with it.

Disgraced, Irrelevant Troll O'Reilly is the Best O'Reilly
