Fading

If the latest Donny Fart Stink job approval polls are accurate, it appears that his soft support is starting to fade, and he's left with the hardest of the hardcore GOP dead end losers, roughly a third of the voters.

We're getting another reminder that turning the entire federal government over to the Republicans is always a lousy idea. When it happens, the best we can hope for is that at least half of the damage can be repaired in a few years.

The Cruz Curse

Rafael (Ted) Cruz is not only ugly and personally repulsive, he doesn't know shit about how health insurance works. There are only a few states that would elect this oily huckster to a Senate seat, and unfortunately, Texas is one of them.

Added 3:38 PM Sunday 16 July: We now have official confirmation from Tom Price of something we believed all along. The Senate version of Trump Care is basically nothing more than letting insurance companies operate the same way they did before the Affordable Care Act was passed.

Only popular in Texas

Uneducated and unintelligent

Research completed after the 2016 election found that Donnie Two Scoops did very well among uneducated white people. That may explain why he continues to be viewed favorably by so many people who voted for him last year, and it also makes the findings of another poll unsurprising: Donnie Two Scoops is popular with GOP voters, but college education is not. At least for the moment, America is under the thumb of the dumbest assholes we've ever seen, maybe the dumbest ever.

Embarrassing Shortcomings

To use an appropriate analogy, if the anticipated meeting between Putin and Donnie Two Scoops was a gunfight, Donnie would be armed with a cap pistol and Putin would be commanding a battery of field artillery. Donnie's trainers are coaching him up with a few short sentences they hope he'll remember when it's his turn to speak.

The way things stand now, the next time Donnie can get off the plane and find his goddamned limo without help, the talking heads on cable news shows will be saying, "At that moment, Donald Trump became president."

Too many big words and long sentences

Evangelunacy x 1,000,000

Sorry, motherfucker. The election of Donnie Dickdrip was not god giving America a second chance. Evangelical conservatives are brain-dead assholes who've turned me completely away from religion, because I don't want to meet them, much less associate with them. Quoting Donald-worshiping preacher Robert Jeffress:
"It was on that day, November 8th, that God declared that the people, not the pollsters, were gonna choose the next president of the United States. And they chose Donald Trump. President Trump won the Evangelical vote by the largest margin in history because Christians understood that he alone had the leadership skills to reverse the downward death spiral our nation was in."
A pair of trashy show biz hucksters

Why we can't have nice things - Parts II and III

At the risk of repeating the obvious, it's hard to see anything good for America happening while Donnie Dick Drip, the Cheese Prince, and Chinless Wonder are making the most important decisions about what does or doesn't get done. This three-legged stool needs one leg sawed off in 2018, and sawing off all three would be better.

Added 3:00 PM: Looking at the big picture, I'm starting to believe the best of the rotten choices available (i.e., the least worst option) would be for the Senate to attempt a total repeal of the ACA, then see where things stand after the smoke clears and the dust settles.

Added 12:16 AM 29 June: The Chinless Wonder is making a strong bid for a spot on my list of Ten Worst People in the World.


2/3 of the Axis of Evil

The American Way

The determination of House and Senate Republicans to destroy the beneficial aspects of the Affordable Care Act can be explained in one of two ways.

One possibility is that they've finally put together a foolproof system for hacking the voting machinery in key swing states. Since they'll be able to manipulate the vote totals, they don't have to sweat voter retaliation. That possibility seems a little less far-fetched every day.

Then there's the old reliable standby plan: When red state voters start bitching about losing their health insurance completely, or paying higher premiums to get a lot less coverage, just have Fox News tell them constantly that all their problems were caused by the Democrats, who refused to vote for the really great bill the GOP actually wanted and were trying to pass. That trick works because the dumb fucks are always anxious to believe it.

Don't look at me. Blame Pelosi and Schumer.
