Be Careful, It’s Dumb Out There. A Few Stories from the Pit of Politics.

in Really?, Trump presidency

Sean Hannity is not known for an incisive intelligence. Which is probably an advantage in his line of work. It would hardly pay to be known for having brains when your stock in trade is to ridicule intelligence. But sometimes his idiocy is so ripe you have to pay attention. Such as in his tweet where he castigates NBC —  for being ‘conspiracy tv’ — by linking to an NBC News article.

Also low in the intellectual rankings is Rand Paul — the man caught plagiarizing Wikipedia because he was dumb enough to quote it verbatim. Paul has joined the “Democrats were trying to fix the election” crowd. Tweeting:

It may not be as bad as Pence’s obsequiousness — but Paul is bowing low before the throne. And the caps, exclamation points & hyperbole, are nothing more than a poodle’s yipping.

Roy Moore is an evil shit. A dyed in the wool kiddie-diddler, he rips off his charity to feather his nest and sponsor his campaigns. He pledges a cynical allegiance to the Constitution while ignoring its requirements. He has been dismissed from the Alabama Supreme Court twice for ignoring the rules. And now he lacks the decency to concede a race he cannot win.

Now a there is a ‘Judge Roy Moore for U. S. Senate’ Facebook post with nothing but a link to an article in ‘Advocate’ featuring Carson Jones, Doug Jones’s gay son. What purpose does it serve Moore? Either he has seen the light and is celebrating homosexuality. Or is he giving his supporters one last treat?

The UN has voted its opinion on Donald Trump’s call to move the American Embassy in Israel. The final vote on a resolution criticizing America was 128-9. Besides Israel, America’s team comprises Togo, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Micronesia, Palau, Honduras, and Guatemala. Every major US ally abstained or voted to censure the US. Canada and Mexico

In 2006, ‘Darlene McBride’ on MadTV gave us a glimpse into the America of 2017. It’s as if she had a crystal ball. To quote the sizeable orange thing: “Enjoy”.
