The Vipers Get The Vapors

Something you rarely see from the professional corpse-humpers of the right:

Statement on coverage of Seth Rich murder investigation
Published May 23, 2017 Fox News

On May 16, a story was posted on the Fox News website on the investigation into the 2016 murder of DNC Staffer Seth Rich. The article was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting. Upon appropriate review, the article was found not to meet those standards and has since been removed.

We will continue to investigate this story and will provide updates as warranted.

That’s it. That is all you get for the Vince Foster corpse-humping, the Ambassador Chris Stevens et al corpse(s) gang-rape* and the rest. Continue reading

The Wheels Come off the Clown Car

The story yesterday was that the Deputy Attorney General had recommended to the Attorney General that James Comey — Director of the FBI — should be fired. This was then taken to Resident Turnip, who approved their recommendation. That story has become utterly inoperable in the last twenty-four hours. Anyone who is NOT a Republican has reason for alarm. (Anyone who IS a Republican is still busy drowning kittens and doesn’t care in any event, evidently.)

To wit:

Trump Interview With Lester Holt: President Asked Comey If He Was Under Investigation
Corky Siemaszko / NBC News

President Donald Trump, in an exclusive interview Thursday with NBC News’ Lester Holt, called ousted FBI chief James Comey a “showboat” and revealed he asked Comey whether he was under investigation for alleged ties to Russia.

Whoopsies. Continue reading

Max Bialystock and Donald Trump

And the comedy of errors and omissions proceeds apace.

Days Before He Was Fired, Comey Asked for Money for Russia Investigation
New York Times

  WASHINGTON — Days before he was fired, James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, asked the Justice Department for a significant increase in money and personnel for the bureau’s investigation into Russia’s interference …

For those of you unfamiliar with Mel Brooks’ The Producers, SPOILER ALERT and HOW did you manage to miss this classic American movie/musical/movie musical?

For the rest, consider this: The Trump Administration is The Producers only in politics and not on Broadway. Continue reading

The One Trick Pony’s One Hundred Daze

Trump’s mad dash to 100 days
Ben White / Politico

President Donald Trump has dismissed the idea of measuring the success of his first 100 days in office as “ridiculous.”  But the president and his top officials have made a number of startling moves this week with the deadline in mind, and Trump has privately obsessed …

After 100 days, it can safely be concluded: Donald Trump is a one-trick pony. His entire schtick is bluster and intimidation. He cannot be wrong, and will do anything, ANYthing to NOT be wrong. As Hillary noted: “A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”

North Korea. Case closed. But there are other considerations.

Consider: as questions about Jeff Sessions’ potential perjury in his confirmation hearings, Trump tweeted that Obama had “wiretapped” him. “This is McCarthyism” he added, as nearly never reported in the focus on the FIRST sentence. Remember, Donald Trump (like most Republicans) projects like a sum’bitch.

But I have a theory as to the why and wherefore of our own national enfant terrible, the Hirsute Cheeto, weighing in at 20 stone: Donald J. Trump.

A Theory Continue reading

Four and Score

Four-twenty, a slang term for smoking intoxicating forms of cannibis, a/k/a marijuana, comes to us, urban etymologists tell us, from a group of California high school stoners who met at that time in an appointed place to partake of the outlawed hemp. CBS even commissioned a poll just for the occasion:

Support for marijuana legalization at all-time high
CBS News

— Sixty-one percent of Americans think marijuana use should be legal, a five-point increase from last year and the highest percentage ever recorded in this poll. Eighty-eight percent favor medical marijuana use. Seventy-one percent oppose the federal government’s efforts to stop marijuana sales and its use in states that have legalized it, including opposition from most Republicans, Democrats, and independents.

This is notable because hoary old CBS News is essentially seeking the “pro” audience in commissioning this poll for the underground holiday of 4/20, as in April 20, based on Jeff Spicoli’s high school rendezvous to get communally baked. Continue reading
