When Black Friday comes...

I'll stand down by the door

And catch the gray men when they
Dive from the fourteenth floor

When Black Friday comes
I'll collect everything I'm owed

And before my friends find out
I'll be on the road

When Black Friday falls
You know it's got to be
Don't let it fall on me

When Black Friday comes
I'll fly down to Muswellbrook

Gonna strike all the big red words
From my little black book

Gonna do just what I please
Gonna wear no socks and shoes

With nothing to do but feed
All the kangaroos

When Black Friday comes
I'll be on that hill
You know I will

When Black Friday comes
I'm gonna dig myself a hole

Gonna lay down in it
'Til I satisfy my soul

Gonna let the world pass by me
The Archbishop's gonna sanctify me

And if he don't come across
I'm gonna let it roll

When Black Friday comes
I'm gonna stake my claim
I'll guess I'll change my name

I don't eat out a lot, but I'm wondering...

Have you ever gone out for a sit down meal and instead of a classic menu, has the restaurant ever handed you an iPad-type electronic menu?

I'm not talking about stationary tablets with pay points for carry out or whatever. I mean like an iPad that that a server hands you as a menu.

The most ideal scenario, of course, would have been for the Democrats to retake the House...

But, gerrymandering and voter suppression notwithstanding, we will now see a perfect clown show storm process in the People's House. The People's Clown Show, as it were.

It would have been nice if all the GOPr clowns lost their reelection bids, MTG, Gym Jordan, Nazi Gosar, however with BoBo finally winning her razor thin victory last night, the clown car is now at full capacity.

The last person in Washington DC who should celebrate this outcome is now the man with the Speaker's Gavel, Steve... Uh, I mean Kevin McCarthy. Steve... , Uh, I mean Kevin has all the integrity of a used car salesman with a gambling addiction and now he's faced with leading a Republican caucus in charge of running committees that are dead set on holding hearings that will best be described as "dubious."

He has no control over these freshly empowered fools, who have not had a single day of experience of being in charge of running half of Congress. All they know is pointlessly throwing shit and attention whoring... Which they will, no doubt, persist in doing for the next two years.

The committees, hellbent on settling scores and investigating mindless MAGAt conspiracies will quickly devolve into crucibles to test the capacity of Republican shame and embarrassment. Especially, when the witnesses that they subpoena sit in testimony and point out to the GOPrs their own foolishness on national TV. After the utter disgrace of the Hillary's Emails and Benghazi debacles, GOPrs still have not learned their lessons. McCarthy knows, however, because he was there to see it all, and now this Republican nightmare is about to repeat itself and he has no power to stop it.

The inmates are in charge of the asylum, baby.

Over on the Democrat side, Hakeem Jeffries stands, ready to give the nut job GOPrs and Steve... Uh, Kevin the daily drubbing that he deserves. It'll be glorious. We'll keep the Senate and the White House, which means that GOPr nonsense bills will wither and die.

Frankly, if politics is supposed to be entertaining, I can't think of a better way to have it for the next couple of years. So, if government can't at least be fully functional, entertaining it shall be.

Looks like Twitter might not last the weekend.

I don't know what to use as a replacement.

Any suggestions?
