One thing that bothers me about one of the Republicans' defenses of Trump:

They (and he) are claiming that he was only concerned about ending the corruption in Ukraine.

It is pitifully obvious that his only concern with ANY corruption is "How can I get in on it?"

Does anyone remember George Carlin, and his "Seven Words You Can't Say" ?


The intervening years have changed things a bit when it comes to the acceptability of these. The first episode of Penn & Teller's "Bullshit" TV series could be watched for a bit of a discourse on some of them.

But I digress.

Carlin himself thought that Tits didn't really belong on The List, it sounded more like the name of a snack food: "Tater Tits", to quote the routine.

I would like to propose a substitute.

I propose we remove Tits from the list, and replace it with Trump.

Admittedly, we have more than four letters, but there is precedent (Cocksucker and Motherfucker).
In my humble opinion, what is meant by the word Trump is far more offensive than anything meant by Tits. Who doesn't like really tits? Everyone from babies on. Straight men? Check! Gay women? Check! Gay men? Check. Straight women? Check.

Everyone LIKES tits. We're hard wired to like tits. If you don't believe me, and you're a straight woman or gay male, go to a strip club, get a couple drinks of 'liquid courage', and pay 20 bucks for a lap dance. You can do it in another City or even State if you feel you want to absolutely make your 'experiment' anonymous; the only people that would judge you are the types you really wouldn't want to associate with.

Tits is the word by far the most undeserving of being placed on The List, by any truly objective measure.

Trump, however, is far more undeserving of NOT being placed on The List. When it comes to pure malice and ill intent, telling your despised antagonist to "Go Trump Yourself" seems a way to fully express your feelings toward them. Some blatant idiot driving down the street with a cell phone in one hand and a cigarette in the other, weaving back and forth, would be most deserving of being called a "Trump voter". They may even have the bumper stickers to prove it. (Those can even serve as warning indicators)
The single person driving the carpool lane "rolling coal" in a 20 year old diesel truck that cuts across three lanes of rush hour traffic to make an exit by going through the Gore point and causes tree fender benders richly deserves the designation of "Trump Humper", unquestionably.

These are just examples from this weeks, I'm sure you can provide your own without much effort.

Maybe I'm a little 'ahead of the curve' here, a bit early, but I feel that the word Trump will be eminently useful as a pejorative and high-level obscenity eventually. Someone has to bring it up, and I might as well be the one.

So, the next time some deserving fool performs an act of egregious idiocy or offense to you, just tell them to Trump themselves. If we work together on this, we can get this started. It will happen eventually, and it has to start somewhere sometime, why not here and now?
