Orange is the new stupid…
Posted October 20, 2016on:
Good morning Widdershins. I’m offering up a short post to move us along since loading up 240 comments is a slow lift for most ISPs.
Last evening it appears the Great Trumpkin got what looks like a fatal case of the gummy stem blight. His orange pallor seemed inordinately pasty.
After the Great Trumpkin’s pronouncement he would ignore what every candidate for President since George Washington has seen as a sacred obligation, nine kinds of hell broke loose. Most relatively intelligent people saw it as a major faux pas. Of course, relatively intelligent excludes #socklessdeadintern and #drunkmika.
This morning I was listening to Morning Schmoe on Sirius radio while driving to a two-day meeting. It sounded like a bunch of long-tailed cats had been thrown into a marathon rocking chair contest. Schmoe was ballistic. Bill Kristol was his normal gag reflexive self. And Harold Ford seemed to have grown weary of trying to cram ten pounds of Schmoe crap in a five-pound bag.
The argument was about the peaceful transition of power and whether or not it is a big deal. In fact, comparatively speaking since there’s thermonuclear weapons involved nothing else comes close.
Last evening a strange species of talking head discussed the concept of peaceful transition of power. For all appearances, it seemed as though it was a sane Republican. Steve Schmidt, a living and breathing sane Republican declared it was a disqualifying event for the Great Trumpkin to “wait and see” if he was down with the concept. Schmidt is a serious student of history and of the presidency in particular. His words seemed very familiar.
It then occurred to me where I had heard them – Game Change, the movie based on the book by Halperin and Heilemann. Woody Harrelson played Schmidt and Sarah Palin was played by Julianne Moore, who won a Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, Screen Actor’s, and an Emmy for the role.
I found the scene and it does a much better job than I ever could in explaining the ramifications.
One last thing: Here’s something as rare as a grammatically correct sentence from the Great Trumpkin. It is a highly laudatory article about our gal. It was written after last night’s debate, but it details how extraordinary Hillary’s performance has been in all three debates. The catch phrase on the article is: Donald Trump didn’t just destroy himself. Hillary Clinton destroyed him. Or as we like to say around here, Donald was whipped by a girl.
What’s on your mind today?
