It’s a Widderlicious Friday…
Posted April 29, 2016on:
Happy Friday Widdershins. It’s the weekend of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner – the D.C. Prom. Larry Wilmore is the marquee name this year. It will be President Obama’s last rodeo and just sayin’, bet there are more than a few Trumpenstein references. A variety of outlets need Saturday evening fodder for fill:
C-Span (Motto: Your crazy uncle is already watching, why not you?) will begin coverage at 6:30 EDT Saturday evening.
CNN (Motto: Where breaking news is interrupted for breaking news of breaking news.) coverage will begin at 7:00 EDT most likely on Saturday, but you never know.
MSNBC (Motto: All Jane Sanders, all the time.) coverage will begin at 9:00 EDT. Most likely they will interrupt their weekend coverage, “Jane Sanders caught on camera doing TurboTax,” to cover the dinner.
Here are a few other things catching my attention.
There are fantasies and then there are fantasies. Given the ego and self-promotional bent of Ted Cruz, it isn’t difficult to believe he likes playing make-believe. What is really crazy is talking someone into joining his fantasy. Have you noticed Cruz’s campaign play on words — TrusTed? I’ve been working on a few. How about: WasTed, DisgusTed, DetesTed, NauseaTed, or my personal favorite AddicTed.
Of course, you have to wonder why Cruz selected Fiorina? She placed seventh in the first primary and then soared in the second primary to, wait for it, seventh place again. She then quit. There is one thing consistent about Fiorina – she always fails up. Her jobs before HP, failures, that led to being HP CEO. She failed there too, but left with a golden parachute in excess of $20 Million. She ran for Senate, failed, then ran for President. She failed, quit, and is now pretending to be Vice President. The woman sure can fail.
Speaking of failures. John McCain had to fire one of his fundraisers. It seems like there was an unfortunate incident with an accidental meth-lab and marijuana growing operation in her home. McCain should have called Angie’s List.
Boehner’s Most Excellent Adventure at Stanford. There was an embarrassing amount of attention on Boehner calling Cruz “Lucifer” and a miserable S.O.B. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Like those are new insults for Cruz. My suggestion: Boehner should carry one of those pocket Breathalyzers. He also said:
- Boehner said he has played golf with Trump for years and that they are “texting buddies.” (Talk about pressure beta-testing spell correct.)
- “Early in the talk, the speaker impersonated Clinton, saying ‘Oh I’m a woman, vote for me,’ to a negative crowd reaction.” (One of the reasons his drag career never took off.)
- “Throughout the talk, Boehner frequently referenced the Freedom Caucus as the ‘knuckleheads’ and ‘goofballs’ in Congress.” (But they were his “knuckleheads and goofballs.”
Instability. How many times, how many thousands of times, did we hear a Republican shuffle out to the microphones during the A.C.A. debate and say, “American business just wants certainty and assurances?” Oh, what a difference a few years make!
Now, Drumpf, the presumptive nominee (self-proclaimed), has declared the keystone of his foreign policy is unpredictability. Other words for unpredictable are: erratic, fickle, uncertain, dangerous – you get the idea. Drumpf is about to make instability our number one export. Dubya is probably praying each night that Drumpf will take the pressure off him as the worst President evah.
Eating worms. The Republican Party is now the most unpopular it has been since 1992. Sixty-two percent of those surveyed said they had an unfavorable view of the GOP. Remarkably, Pew Research reported that the decline in favorability “has largely come among Republicans themselves: Sixty-eight percent of Republicans now view their party positively, down from 79% last fall.”
Just goes to show you, even racism and sexism are embarrassing if others notice.
What’s on your mind today?
