Adieu créature

An anonymous complaint about the previous post and an apology:

On behalf of the International League of Flying Primates, I do wish to formally condemn the prejudice put forth in this column against airborne simians.

We still combat the propaganda of 1939 put forth in a Hollywood film which portrayed us in a shamefully degrading manner. We were at the time a colony of a foreign power which, as it may be pointed out, sought remedy against an injustice perpetrated against the sister of our former leader.

Nevertheless, we are a stable, forward-thinking republic of freedom-loving brachypterous apes. To associate our legal skills with the Trump association is a grievous slight. Please understand that it causes our membership great offense to compare us with the hairless bipeds of the Trump racketeering organization.

That is your last counseling session. Should it occur again, you will be struck unawares with an aerial poo bombardment.

My sincere apologies to the ILFP and any unaffiliated airborne simians.


Trump says Germany owes “vast sums” to NATO. Coincidentally, Trump owes “vast sums” to his former contractors.

A “conservative columnist” has been diagnosed with Maddow envy.

The southern border wall must be high enough for “the President” to have a great fall.

Potemkin presidency

It’s been all downhill for Trump from the start: from the worst inaugural address since Genghis Khan, to a Muslim ban — written by a pair of flying monkeys — that was immediately slapped down, to the lying caricature of a press secretary implicating the UK in a fake scandal based on fake news from a fake judge, to today’s utter humiliation on the world stage courtesy of the formidable Ms Merkel.

It’s obvious that he’s afraid of Merkel.

Trump is loath to attack another billionaire like Putin, who helped get him elected. Hence, US foreign policy is totally compromised and the major European capitols know this.

Trump should release a recent MRI.

Warm, in your coat

Some people say that Ivanka Trump is complicit. But I think once she’s under oath, she’ll spill the beans. She won’t want to face a perjury charge and wind up in an “Orange Is the New Black” situation.

Sean Spicer works for “President Trump.”

Like Romans on the eve of the Dark Ages, this is the last chance for Britons to experience the cultural achievements of Western civilization. Before Brexit kicks in.

A forward-thinking entrepreneur will create an app for “Brexit brides.”

Battle of evermore

March 8th is the real May Day.

Liberal feminism is low hanging fruit for any competent critic. It’s been criticized ad nauseum. Will yet another book add anything substantially new to the “to be read” pile? It is doubtful. It would be another matter to bring a critical torch to bear on the current post-liberal feminist orthodoxy: intersectionality. It needs to be torched. But this would require more courage and ingenuity than is need to bash the liberal women of the second wave. Unlike the critique of liberal feminism, there are no well-worn grooves in which to slot an argument.

If you have to ask

The silly Trumpification of America continues, c/o Sepp Gulati.

Five year old President Trump demands a Congressional investigation of Tappgate and a bowl of pistachio ice cream.

Up at 5am, listening to Phil Collins, is enough to make anyone tweet crazy stuff.

Oklahoma was the “wife beater state” long before any Muslims arrived.

Re Mike Pence and private email hypocrisy: convenience store Christians always congregate near the skin mags.

Dementia praecox

Trump claims there was an Obama “tapp” on his Barad-dûr tower, unwittingly admitting there was probable cause for a FISA warrant authorizing a “tapp.”

He’s also upset Beauregard Sessions recused himself.

The writing is on the wall, Donnie, and it’s in Russian.

Waiting for the tapes of Trump and Anna Chapman to come out.

Today pro-Trump rallies were held. Many unemployed circus clowns turned out.

Schadenfreude is back at Old Trafford. Even Zlatan went full Fellaini.

Blue tears

Arkansas is moving to ban books by Howard Zinn from public schools. I thought Arkansas schools only used the Bible.

Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III is in hot water for lying about meeting with a Russian ambassador. He’s vulnerable when not wearing his Klan regalia.

All The President of Russia’s Men.

Some say Sessions should be locked up. Exile in Siberia would be more apt.

Some say Trump’s Russian is more coherent than his English. In English he says Sessions didn’t say anything wrong and that Democrats are engaged in a witch hunt.

Too bad Sessions rode in on Baba Yaga’s broomstick.
