What’s with Trump’s hair?

I don’t like to comment on the appearance of my political enemies, but I really can’t make out what’s going on here with Trump’s hair. Does anybody know? h/t: Grania (who thinks he has mange)

Trump’s postmortem on the Democrats’ reaction during the State of the Union address

Here is a narcissist in action. He can’t even let go of the tepid reaction of the Democrats during his State of the Union address; in fact, unbelievably, he calls it not only “un-American”, but treason. He claims that Democrats care more about their own ideology than the good of the country, but doesn’t realize that […]

A horrible thought

I was watching the local news, which had a report on the Obama Presidential Library–to be built not far from where I live. And then I thought this: WILL THERE BE A DONALD TRUMP PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY? Will it really happen? Maybe not if he’s impeached. But even Richard Nixon, who resigned in disgrace, has one.

Hillary cringeworthy at the Grammys

I didn’t watch the Grammys last night, as I’m not a big fan of award shows (I don’t watch the Oscars, either), and I don’t watch much t.v. anyway. From what I hear, it was highly politicized, with people wearing white roses to support the #MeToo movement, which is great, but also with a lot […]

A man raps to his cat (and a poll)

Well, it looks as if the government is going to shut down in about 8.5 hours. If you were going to go to the Smithsonian today, do it now.  But first, place your bets here, then I’ll show you a cat rapper: Your reward for voting: Moshow the Cat Rapper making up a spontaneous rap […]

Trump’s latest comments on immigration are beyond belief

I just heard this on the evening news (I guess I didn’t check the written news this afternoon) and verified it in the New York Times. The NYT gives the gist: President Trump on Thursday balked at an immigration deal that would include protections for people from Haiti and African countries, demanding to know at […]

The CDC bans 7 words and phrases from work conducted by their scientists

Several readers sent me links to an odious new policy implemented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the U.S. This link to the Chicago Tribune‘s article, source of the quotes below, comes from reader Ron. This new policy was of course forced on the CDC by the Trump administration.  My emphasis […]

Trump family can’t vote properly

Grania found this tweet about the Trump family’s vote in last month’s New York City mayoral election. (They’re all officially New York residents.) Trump family tried to vote absentee in the NYC mayoral election: MELANIA: Didn't follow directions to sign envelope so her vote didn't count IVANKA: Sent it on election day, too late JARED: […]

Poll: Who will win in Alabama?

It’s a referendum on progressivism versus hidebound conservatism in Alabama today, as Republican Roy Moore (yes, you know all about him) faces off against Democrat Doug Jones to fill Jeff Sessions’s Senate seat.  Moore is, if that’s possible, worse than Trump (for one thing, he’s always spouting off about God and Jesus), but, you know, […]

Does hate have a home on the Left?

I’m seeing these signs all over Hyde Park, the part of Chicago where I live: And of course they’re supposed to be signs of inclusivity and welcome, which is good. But are they sincere? According to Frank Bruni’s editorial in today’s New York Times, they’re not always true for the Left. Bruni is distressed by […]
