I now refer to him ONLY as:

Baron Golfin von Fatfuk.

It just seems to work so beautifully. I thank whomever came up with that appellation

Some interesting perspective on this...

My last patient last night was a former NBA basketball player and an acknowledged star of Philadelphia college and professional basketball. Among other qualifications to comment (as you can only imagine), is that his former girlfriend became Kareem's first wife. This gentleman has been around the block more than anyone I've ever met.

I asked him: do you have any recollection in locker rooms, bars, swinging hotel rooms with orgies, dates, back seats of cars, ANYWHERE where men talked like this guy does where they could be quoted by people? His response: absolutely not. He had not one single memory of an NBA player or any of their posse or anyone ever referring to women's bleeding or demeaning them IN THAT FASHION. That is not to say that they didn't have some choice words for women: he wasn't saying that at all, but even that Access Hollywood tape he said was not how these guys relate their technique or experiential history with women. He thinks Trump is an "asshole" and "sick".

Please allow me to say that I've known him for over twenty years and he's a lady-killer BUT he knows his limits within the society's norms.

They fired the shit heard round the world.

Get the fuck out of town,Greta, you lame-ass, ineffectual, right-wing troglodyte troll.

Um, my memory could be wrong

But I listened to almost every minute of the Senate Select Committee investigating Watergate and if I recall correctly with the notable exception of Senator Lowell Weicker of Connecticut, the Republicans on that committee asked pointed questions of the witnesses in a manner which tended to exculpate Nixon and his cronies and attempted to cast doubt on the wrongdoing which was as plain as the nose on your face...or Nixon's face. As a college student I distinctly remember thinking that the Republicans including Senator Baker were skeptical that anyone could dream that there was a real criminal conspiracy. It was only later when the public had had enough that Baker and others began to act like real, or semi-real prosecutors.

And one more thing: Nixon was afraid as was the Establishment that all the rest of the misdeeds orchestrated contemporaneously and before we're going to come out if he didn't resign. That's why Ford declared the crisis "over": they didn't want more of the horrorshow to emerge.

Fuck. Just plain fuck

If this is what America wants then they can have it. I hope these fuckers who voted for her have shit happen to them with no recourse. I want to watch them suffer.

Yeah I know...

Fuck them anyway. If they're not gonna be altruistic then neither am I.

Joe Scum and his anti-Semitism

I'll paraphrase: Jon Ossoff should not be running because a Southern Democrat should be a Jimmy Carter/Zell Miller type and Ossoff doesn't belong in Georgia.

Of course he stated the requisite disclaimers.

The Powers That Be are readying us for his removal.

Thus the constant drumbeat of Watergate history, the constant repetition of the number of days he has held, albeit IMO illegitimately in every sense, the Presidency, the constant raised eyebrows of his fellow GOPers, and most notably, the mass of retired individuals from the Intelligence Comminity who are denigrating him rightfully.

As an aside, do recall that the presence of a President of color on the TV show 24 made it conceivable for this to occur in real life among the masses. Fiction often presages reality.

The reincarnation of Saddam Hussein is our President:

A narcissistic megalomaniacal ruler whose palaces are literally golden while he oppressed anyone and everyone with whom he comes into contact, threatening violence and demanding absolute loyalty. Two insane sons who have even less of a filter than their father who attempt to wield fear as a weapon. This is the worst of all possible worlds.

He's out of.breath

Starting his stupid speech.

His health is failing. He's gasping and his breathing is labored. Personally I think it's heart failure.
