Lucky Ducky....

What did Andy Pudzer know and when did he know it?

Perhaps all he had to do was listen to Cheetolini's rambling answer about himself to a question about anti-semitism.

Or maybe he knows not to get on a sinking ship.

We should ask our Trump-loving friends if this new news means that Pudzer thinks that America is great again, and if so, why did he just withdraw his own nomination?


Let's say that you're a GOPr and you were just handed everything you've ever wanted

Control of all three branches of government, a relatively compliant press, a gerrymandered majority and lots and lots of corporate cash.

Life couldn't get any better, right?

But let's say that the majority is both artificial and on the demographic downtrend, many of those ostensibly "conservative" Federal judges are more loyal to the Constitution and the Separation of Powers than they are partisan and the White House is now in the tiny hands of an incompetent, thin-skinned, narcissistic con man with delusions of grandeur. What do you do now?

Well, you do what you always do, you surround yourself with an impenetrable bubble of magical thinking, of course. Reality is for losers. You put that fake, toothy smile on your Botoxed face, blame someone else and claim that things are just fine.

"Nothing to see here."

So, no matter what happens, for the next two years there won't be in depth Congressional investigations of Trump and there's not going to be any impeachment hearings. There will be a huge push to enact a regressive, white supremacist, pro-corporate GOPr agenda while they're still in charge of everything.

The media won't help, they're too busy fixating on the drama.

However, the people are rising up and facing down their GOPr Congresscritters. They're in the streets and the meeting halls. They're trying to take back their own political power.

This isn't the end, it's just the beginning. It would be nice if we all focused on that.

If they've already outfitted Mar A Lago with a SCIF, I'll be surprised...

These people are incompetent, they wouldn't know any better.

If that joint does have a SCIF up and running, why didn't they use it?

That scene in Trump's dining room was the biggest lapse in security I've ever seen by any White House occupant ever.


What did Donald Trump know...

And when did he know it?


Anyone got a GroupOn for a Constitutional Democratic Republic?

One that can be used in all fifty states.


Thanks for the Valentines, my peoples

I'm truly feeling all the 💝!

I'm sure that the GOPr hypocrites are proud of Cheetolini's most recent accomplishment


White People: I Dont Want You To Understand Me Better, I Want You To Understand Yourselves

Ijeoma Oluo

Hi white person in my DMs, let me respond here in the hopes that I never have to again.

Almost every day I get a message like yours from a random white person — on Facebook, Twitter, or email — offering to provide me with the “white perspective” that they think that my work on race and feminism is missing. “Just to give a more well-rounded picture,” they’ll explain, or “Having been a white person my whole life, I think my insight would be useful to you,” or, “I think I can help you understand how this issue looks to white society.”

To which I say: Physician, heal thyself.
No, I do not know everything. I do not cover every angle all the time. Sometimes, I’m flat-out wrong. But here’s the thing: I do know white culture. I know white culture better than most white people know white culture. I know white culture, white history, white politics. I know it better than you because if you knew why you were really in my DMs right now, you’d be embarrassed. Why do I know white culture so well? Because I’m a black woman. And while I, and just about any person of color who has spent their lives in a white supremacist society, know enough about white culture to write a book or two on whiteness and option the bestseller movie rights, y’all know almost nothing about us and even less about yourselves.

Why? Because you don’t have to.


Cheetolini got the cabinet of oligarchs, ideologues and incompetents he wanted

Not to mention his traveling circus of white nationalists, yes men, spin doctoring propagandists, police state strongmen, nepotism beneficiaries and general malcontents.

It won't be pretty.

If we're all not outrunning brain ravenous zombies, Russian remote controlled glow-in-the-dark cockroaches and an army of gibbon faced steampunk Nazis by this time next year, I'll be surprised.
