Jabba Seems To Have Staying Power

How many impeachable and indictable things can we excuse donnie from?

I can’t think of any.

But we are.

Excusing him.

And the list is long – of transgressions committed and being ignored, denied or forgiven.

Treason comes to mind at or near the top of the list.

The emoluments thing is so blatant it doesn’t bear being mentioned.

So I won’t.

Trying to gut the freedom of the press is so out of the Putin Playbook that only someone who has not read The Invention of Russia would not recognize it’s key components: plant fake news, claim fake news, deny and threaten real news, and always lie, even if the truth might be benign.

And bragging about being a sexual predator probably isn’t very important, so we can move on from the tape where he crows about his predatory prowess and from the multiple women who are on record saying they have been his victim.

After all, it would be untoward to go after the President of the United States when little people like Garrison Keillor are available for the pillory.

Anyway - you know how hysterical women get when someone grabs them by the crotch, right?

And besides, I guess there needs to be a lot of leeway granted to the President of the United States to conduct himself in office – right?

So however long the list of this man’s indictable and impeachable infractions may be, we just have to suck it up and take it.

Welcome to the newly made great America.


I would not bring up the obvious if I were not continually haunted by memories of - just a few of the - people denied the right to even run for President due to ONE NEWSWORTHY, BUT WHO REALLY GAVE A FUCK, THING: Patricia Schroeder (she cried), Gary Hart (he indulged in some hanky panky – it was alleged – aboard a luxury sea craft dubbed Monkey Business, Ed Musky (he teared up in a news conference talking about attacks on his wife) and John McCain 2000 (he was alleged to have a black child – what has that laudable, if true, thing got to do with being President?) are on the list.

How can we have slid so far down the slippery slope of mindless opportunism (my version of godless humanism) that we can tolerate the human equivalent of Jabba the Hut being in the office of President of the United States for one more moment?

One answer to that question is that the majority and controlling party is the party of the amoral rich, big business, pedophiles, ignoramuses, Russian sympathizers, criminals and liars.

But that’s just me.
