With the unexpected lull in the January 6 hearings, I find myself mulling over the state of electoral play here in the good ol’ U.S.A., where everything always makes sense because there’s an algorithm or a conspiracy theory to light the way.
Let me see if this is what I am capable of doing.
The Republican Party — which has given us over the last 22 years an actual stolen election in 2000; two calamitously failed and ruinously expensive 20-year wars; September 11; institutionalized torture; a massive financial collapse in 2008; Paul Gosar and the deep mainstreaming of racism and the ultraviolent fascist militia movement; Tea Partiers who think Medicare isn’t a government program; an untouchable gun culture that rips through kids and devastates communities; Lindsey Graham and the triumph of political cowardice; a whole slew of society-shattering tax cuts; the looming end of Roe and the potential end of privacy as we have known it; Lauren Boebert, Madison Cawthorn, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Louie Gohmert and the viral unreality of QAnon; Mitch McConnell and the end of the Senate as a functioning government body; a rampaging million-body COVID pandemic that could have been curtailed with a modicum of competence; Sarah Palin, who made Donald Trump possible; and so much more — is reportedly on the cusp of not only taking over Congress next year, but also possibly sending Trump back into the Oval Office because nobody appears to have sufficient patience for the guy from Delaware who’s been scuffling to extinguish the flaming bag of dog shit he inherited from the aforementioned pack of brigands, fiends, frauds and fools.
God bless America
Mainstream political pundits have this to say Joe Biden should not run again in 2024Because he’s too old. ThatThis is what passes as heavy, heady political discourse these days. Never mind the seven-ten split that he has been coping with since the day he swore the oath, and this is not to name him faultless, but for the love of all reason… Hardly a serious whisper about the two-decade crime spree perpetrated by the not-so-loyal opposition, as if there wasn’t enough to write about from this age of rage, malice and pure greed.
The party that ran in 2020 without a presidential platform because it doesn’t have anything to offer except for its hatred toward LGBT youth, immigrants, science, masks and vaccines is apparently about to run the table. Without a platform. Again.
Do you ever feel like someone has a thumb on the scales? Yes, you do. Yet, we are stuck with an electoral story line straight from Lovecraft or Alighieri.
Trump is mad at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Like, It’s really insane you guys. It seems DeSantis failed to grok the memo that said only Trump can run for the Republican nomination in 2024, even though he isn’t running yet, because if he does announce a run right now, his presence could potentially ruin the GOP’s chances of taking over Congress.
Ronny D. stepped in to fill the void. He is a fascist in a very Florida-like way. Who else would declare war upon Disney, books, and other media? children with disabilitiesAnd on nature in one fell sweep? This is the man who punished the Tampa Bay Rays baseball teamBecause they protested against schoolkids being gun-mutilated. He has also raised funds more than $114 million through the end of AprilHe is supported by a group of billionaires, which is quite a staggering amount.
Let the games begin begin:
Donald Trump in recent months has been telling confidants that he may launch his 2024 presidential campaign early — and that he’s considering launching it in Florida to stick it to Gov. Ron DeSantis. According to three sources familiar, Trump has been planning a big, flashy launch rally with fireworks that would announce his White House bid.
People who’ve spoken to Trump say that one reason he’s eying the Sunshine State is to assert his dominance over an ascendant DeSantis, who — if they both run in 2024 — would likely be the former president’s most formidable competitor in a primary fight for the GOP nomination. One of the sources said Trump’s motivation is to show the governor “who the boss is” in the modern-day GOP.
Trump, the sources say, has even asked some associates if they had opinions on any good venues or event spaces — that just happen to be located close to the Florida’s Governor’s Mansion in Tallahassee.
If Trump’s influence over the GOP continues to grow, I’ll start to wonder if we’re headed toward a canine-style political system in which frontrunners assert their dominance over their rivals by running up and peeing on them.
Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton looks to be in this thingShe also does, along with the former Vice President, and January 6 murder target Mike Pence. To determine which clown is more terrifying, it would require more fractal math than my brain can handle. But the most frightening part is how much more they will destroy everything than Trump was on his best day.
Trump is like a “key log” from the old days when workers sent lumber down the river to the mill. Experts would locate the key log in a jam and then free all other logs. Trump was the key log of 21st-century fascism in the United States. Once he reached the river, all other fascists followed him to power.
That’s what puts the bags under my eyes these days. Republicans have been flooding poverty and death on this country for decades. In the aftermath, they are still well prepared to take down the entire thing in the next two-years. One of these men could be elected president very soon. One of these guys might be interested in becoming president. wake up the DemocratsLet them know.
Sorry, but the comedy club can be found next door. Ba doom boom, tsssss…
