Another weekend come and gone and one day closer to doomsday, AKA election day. Do you remember when election day was a day that held a promise of a better way? Better people? Better ideas and outcomes? A promise of things to come that didn’t make you sick to your stomach?
That is not to say that there are not people who believe that either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton will bring those things. There are, sadly some people stupid enough to believe such hooey. I tend not to pay attention to such frothing-at-the-mouth lunatics that belong in a straightjacket not a voting booth.
Monday is the beginning of a new week with all the promise that could bring. Most people don’t look at Mondays that way do they? Instead they complain and reluctantly head off to another work week. Not enthused. Not happy. And not with a thought of a new beginning. Sad isn’t it?
For those lucky few that actually like their job Mondays may be great. For those of us like me, that no longer belong to the work force, it’s just another day. Or an old song by the Mommas and Poppas.
For most working people every Monday, except when its part of a 3 day Holiday weekend is regarded as Blue Monday – a
Speaking of something to be miserable about this Monday we face the depressing thought that we are only 2 days away from another Hillary Clinton – Donald Trump debate. Favorite programming, be it ever so trite, will be pre-empted by these two degenerates.
Knowing that one of these two horrible people will soon occupy the White House is enough to depress a decent person 7 days a week.
What can I say about these two that hasn’t already been said? What can I say that I haven’t already said?
Well let’s talk about their idiot apologists.
I have no use for the site “AlterNet” but they occasionally get something right.
Based on absolutely nothing, except possibly the little voices in her head, Michelle Bachmann says no one should believe the lies about Donald Trump and sexual assaults. It’s all a diabolical plot, you see. One which apparently included getting inside Donald Trump’s mouth in 2005 and making him say those nasty things about “grabbing pussy” just because he can.
Though it is quite a competitive race, Dr. Ben Carson might be Donald Trump’s most ill-considered surrogate. For one thing, he’s always let it be known that Trump was not really his first choice, endorsing him tepidly at best. Still, Carson, was trotted out this week not once but twice, and did a good job of totally sticking his foot in it both times. The first time, Carson wisely insisted that the kinds of things that Donald Trump said on the bus with Billy Bush about “just starting to kiss women” and “grabbing their pussies” were so normal, in fact, they were mild compared to most of the stuff you hear all the time.
The former lieutenant governor of New York,” Betsy McCaughey crawled out of her hole again this week.
Her important message: Hillary Clinton likes bad words more than Donald Trump.
“I abhor lewd and bawdy language,” the prim Ms. McCaughey told CNN’s Don Lemon. “I don’t listen to rap music because it’s full of the F-word, the P-word, the B-word, the A-word.”
Newt Gingrich and Sean Hannity were commiserating about all the nasty revelations about their boy Donald this week. They are in full agreement with their orange leader’s view that there is a vast conspiracy against him and that the media is out to get him.
Newt, being the smarter of the two, laid out the theory in some detail:
“First of all, Barry Castleman wrote a blog this week in which he said this is literally a media coup d’état,” Newt said. “This was an effort by the media, starting last Friday, to replace the chosen nominee and destroy the chosen nominee of one of our two major parties. And it was an all-out effort, virtually a lynching by the news media.”
A lynching Newt? Seriously?
Jon Voight, the 77-year-old actor who seems to have taken leave of his senses, is feeling very, very nervous. Voight is scared his boy Trump might lose the election. That’s about the only reality-based thing he is formulating about the election, based on a new video Voight posted on YouTube Thursday.
Voight tweeted that Trump will be “the greatest president” the country has ever seen, who will “save our America.”
Wouldn’t it be nice if sites like AlterNet also wrote about the unhinged lunatics defending Hillary? Don’t hold your breath.
This is an old article from Politico but it’s timely even a year after it was written.
Clinton defenders (and intimates)David Brock, Lanny Davis, Maria Cardona, Jennifer Granholm, James Carville and Karen Finney advanced with absolute certainty that the Clinton email/server story was, in Granholm’s words, “just a nothingburger.”
All in all, all things being as they are, we have a good reason for finding this Monday a Blue Monday. And we can expect no relief from Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday…
