Trump’s presidency is an ongoing series of felonies. He’ll be in exile in Russia long before a President Harris can get her hands on him.

Let Trump have his war with Iran. It will put to an end the 2016 claim from Bernistan that in contrast to Clinton, Trump was a peacemaker.

A few of the Democrats running for the nomination haven’t made it to the debate stage. There are no orange slices and trophies for finishing 21st.

I keep confusing Bullock with Bulworth.

Nothing against Cory Booker, but the last President associated with Stanford didn’t work out so well.

Anti-vaxxer Jessica Biesles has torpedoed her career.

Sarah Sanders is going straight to the hot place, where her soul will be cleansed by eternal hellfire. She delivered a masterclass in lying every time she appeared on camera.

This resignation brings joy to all rational people.

Larry Kudlow is openly senile.

It would be good to give up the idea that you’re smarter and better at politics than Pelosi.

Amanda Knox is in Italy. Excellent trolling, Ms Knox.

Andante cantabile

As the kids say: Michael Moore needs to check his own masculine privilege.

Does anyone remember …

Michael Moore, the filmmaker, lambasted the front-runners. ”A vote for Gore is a vote for Bush,” he said. ”If they both believe in the same thing, wouldn’t you want the original than the copy? Wouldn’t you want Bush? Sirloin or hamburger? Which would you go for?”

Republicans like measles, probably something to do with The Rapture.

The NY Times has hired some low quality reporters recently, unlike the ones who won Pulitzers in 2017. See Elizabeth Williamson.

The Rapture won’t make poor people richer. Mike Pence won’t tell you that, though.

Methodism is backsliding into spiritual backwardness.

Isn’t Glenn Greenwald a Fox News contributor now?

Good news: this is last time Trump will have the freedom to attend CPAC.

Fact checking a born liar is like Sisyphus rolling a greased rock.

Trump is Melania’s anchor baby daddy.

Anti-vaxx nutters are also swivel-eyed national populists.

Good news: this is the last time Bernie Sanders will run for president.

Comment dire

Bernie and his Bros takes pleasure in upstaging women. Bernie is all about himself.

A Schmittian loophole allows the Sovereign (Trump) to decide the state of the exception.

Perhaps the politics of outrage have peaked. Ralph Northam undoubtedly sees Trump get away with things and thinks “why should I resign?”

Short fingers and bone spurs don’t suggest good genetics. Numerous encounters with the legal system suggest criminal genetics.

Trump is skint.

Anti-vaxxers are a health hazard.

The only thing left to decide is where Maduro goes into exile: Cuba? Bolivia? Russia? Turkey?

A MAGAcap is like a scarlet letter or a bubo.

Party out of bounds

As news meanders across the political media universe that Jeb Bush’s email dump revealed sensitive personal information about 12,000 people, raising the spectre of another incompetent Bush in the White House, one wonders how he would be able to navigate a successful primary run for the Republican nomination. The Republican Party is not a single entity but rather an unappetizing ragout of functionally incompatible factions:

1. A tiny rump of reasonably rational Republicans, the so-called Establishment which caters to Wall Street and maintains a respectable 10 handicap.

2. A Tea Party faction that is the driving force in Republican political psychology. The Tea Party has several wings:

(a) a wacky libertarian wing (e.g., Rand Paul) comprised of Isolationists, Anti-Vaxxers, the Gun Lobby, and Gold Bugs.

(b) a social conservative, religious wing (Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin) that is  obsessed about addicted to talking about gay sex.

(c) a bandit wing (e.g., Cliven Bundy, paranoid militias and survivalists living in fortified bunkers, White Supremacists in Idaho) that is ready to engage in the violent overthrow of the US government.

(d) a classic poujadist wing comprised of people who want free services from government but don’t want to pay taxes.

3. A “Bomb Iran” caucus (e.g., John McCain and Lindsay Graham), which sometimes overlaps with the “Bomb Moscow, But Make Putin Our Presidential Nominee First” caucus (e.g., John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Franklin Graham, Steven Seagal, etc.), and the “Bomb Everyone We Dislike to Show We’re Manly Men” caucus (e.g., John McCain and Lindsay Graham).

2016 may not be the year for another RINO, which is the tag of death for a moderate Republican like Mr Bush.

Silver lining

Lindsay Lohan is suing Fox News, which she accuses of peddling “malicious innuendo.” Malicious innuendo is the Fox News business model.

Perhaps the anti-Vaxxers could be quarantined on the Bundy Ranch in Nevada.

Whenever Rand Paul’s wacky libertarian philosophy leaks out, he reveals himself as a card carrying member of the lunatic fringe.

The nut didn’t fall very far from the tree (Ron Paul).

What is and what should never be

Right-wing movements around the world are fighting a battle against modernity that has already been lost. This explains the wild flailing and general cluelessness they exhibit. They represent a negative politics, nothing more. They can be counted on to exhibit high levels of symbolic violence, with the threat of physical violence barely held in abeyance.

Chris Christie is a typical New Jersey pol: belligerent, clownish, willing to kneecap an opponent if necessary; his brass knuckles political style is best suited to 1892.

Mr Huckabee says forcing people opposed to same-sex marriage to accept it was the same as telling Jews they had to serve “bacon-wrapped shrimp in their deli”.  He’s the perfect candidate for the twelfth century.

Anti-vaxxers are the ISIS of public health.
