We Live in Onion Times

Posted on: August 21, 2019

Let’s never normalize what is going on with the Mango Moron, okay? He is full-on batsh*t crazy, and that’s no exaggeration.

Here are the stories we’re living through as I write this.

No one will sell Drumpf Greenland, so he’s not going to Denmark.

Jews are disloyal and un-American if they vote Democratic.

Rep. Rashid Tlaib is violent and crazy, but worst of all – WORDS!

After Russia hacked into and de-legitimized our federal elections, instead of punishing them, it’s best to reward them by inviting them back into the G7.

The Onion could not make any of this up, but sometimes I feel it did.

This is the openest of threads.

Oh, those examples above are so weak. Now Trump is “the Chosen One.” (even louder endless scream)

@1, DYB, daily. Sometimes several times a day.

Why isn’t the media writing headlines like “President* is off his rocker”?

@5, 6. Damn. I still don’t understand why he didn’t get more attention given his achievements — executive-level success in all the Dem areas. Not just plans, but achievements. I know as a white older man he wasn’t what the base wanted. But really — why did white Mayor Pete with only mayoral experience in a not very big city and so many problems with his black constituency, and being OK with anti-vaxers get so much attention? Then Inslee wasn’t invited to CNN’s climate-change debate though he achieved the donor threshold. As for polling — it’s 16 damn months — a year and a 1/4 from the election! You can’t tell much from polls now. Also, why not wait until after voters here the candidates a few times before paying attention to polls?

Oh, realistically Inslee wasn’t going to win, but he had 200 x Bernie’s achievements. (glares at MSM)

Everyone but Harris, Warren, Klobuchar, Booker, Castro, and Gillibrand (and maybe Beto) should drop the hell out.

I only hope that President Warren or Harris creates a new Dept. of Climate Change and Inslee is named Secretary.

@7: If I read it correctly it sounds like the Court of Appeals said Colorado overstepped their boundaries because once the electors meet to cast their votes that is a federal function that the state doesn’t control.

they are fulfilling a federal function, and a state’s authority has ended. “The states’ power to appoint electors does not include the power to remove them or nullify their votes,” the court said.

I’m sure it’s heading to the Supremes.

@8: why did white Mayor Pete with only mayoral experience in a not very big city and so many problems with his black constituency, and being OK with anti-vaxers get so much attention?

Cuz he’s gay.

Luna, I know he met the numbers for contributors but I have a feeling he wasn’t going to make whatever requirement there is on the three polls or some shit like that.

@7, The whole Electoral College scam stinks.

Wonder if WA’s AG will sue about this decision overruling our state’s SCOTUS.

The federal court ruling conflicts with a decision from Washington state’s Supreme Court in May, which said electors must follow the results of the popular vote. “The power of electors to vote comes from the state, and the elector has no personal right to that role,” the court said.

@13: I bet he will. Colorado could join in with ur AG or vice versa.

@7, 8, the whole Electoral College scam stinks.

Hope my state’s AG sues.

Luna, I know you love Inslee. I was very impressed with him. I think he is better off where he is. We need every state and the federal government to go blue. We can’t afford to let any Republicans win on any level of government.

Awck! Didn’t mean to post twice! I was jumping from window to window in 2 browsers and forgot the truism – “Multitasking makes you stupid.”

@10, White and gay. Wonder if he’ll outlast Beto’s trend. I’d much rather have Beto if I had to choose between 2 younger white guys with little experience.

Luna, got this in an email from Inslee:

However, at the same time we reached this threshold, it became clear that we would not meet the DNC’s polling threshold, thus we would not have been invited to the fall debates. As a result, I don’t believe we can compete for the attention and exposure needed to have a reasonable shot at the nomination.

@16, madamab, I’ll be happy to have Jay as a 3-term Guv. But if he gets picked for EPA or the like, I think our state will elect a Dem governor as replacement. We haven’t had a Repug for quite some time, and that was back when the Rs were equivalent to today’s moderate Dems. Ooopse — I take that back. We almost had an R gov in 2004, but that was because the Dem was a woman (aghast!!!!). (worried face) Hope we don’t have that level of voter sexism now.

@18: Nope, no Beto for me. If the Senate isn’t good enough for him I don’t even want to see him as a veep candidate.

What’s one of the duties of the veep? To preside over the Senate. Heaven forbid he has to preside over a body that’s “not good enough” for him.

Thanks, Fredster. I haven’t checked my email today. Inslee is a pragmatist, which is an admirable trait I think.

–Snort!–

@23: “I’m sure I have something terribly important to do at that time. Let me check my calendar. Yep, there it is: Gotta check on a reindeer herd” Sorreeee.

@4, I’ll even pitch in my meager savings — let’s crowd-fund to help Denmark buy us!

@25: Count me in. Do I get a Plumrose Danish ham?

A note: Many, many years ago there was a commercial for those things and for the music they used Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik. Why Mozart I have no idea. Still, one of my first experiences with classical music. What an introduction.

Inslee is a good man. I think he would have made a good president.

@7, God I hate the electoral college. If by some miracle the Dems take the presidency and senate, they must try to impeach some of the quack judges the rethugs gave us.

A woman we know was widowed a year ago, and she sold a bunch of their belongings and moved to Denmark by herself.

@28: Did she know anyone in Denmark or have relatives there annie?

Heads up widdershins: I just checked the preseason NFL schedule and between Thursday and Sunday there are seven NFL games coming on.

So for me, can you say:

Fredster you are so funny! My hubby loves football but doesn’t watch pre-season.

I still have my theory that 32-33% approval for the Dumpster Fire is the magic “Dump Trump” threshold for the GOP. He’s getting closer and closer…I wonder if we will be able to test it?

Heaven forbid he has to preside over a body that’s “not good enough” for him.

@21, How did I forget Beto thinks the Senate is beneath him. How convenient, since he did lose his Senate race.

@31: mb, this being the 3rd week of preseason the teams may play more of the starters in the games; at least that’s what the writers are saying about the Saints. Plus, there are teams I wouldn’t see during the regular season. And a few of the games are on the NFL Network.

I’ve got that as part of my new customer deal with the cable company. Once those prices start going up I’ll be dropping a number of the channels. Gotta take advantage of it while I can.

@32: To be honest, Beto did come close to beating Cruz in that very red state. And he could probably beat Cornyn. Still, that’s not good enough for Beto.

@29, No, she was just fed up with the U.S., her kids were married and live far away, and she just wanted a last adventure, so she picked Denmark.

@30, the Dudes are excited about it, but we still moving our stuff, and will likely be doing so through the weekend. Still, they can have it on the tv and listen while they’re carrying stuff in the house and unpacking.

@32, That’s a huge black mark against Beto for me. He’s too arrogant to accept being a US Senator instead of President? Or he’s a bad sport because he lost it in ’18? He sounds immature and egomaniacal.

@33, very fishy.

@34, Good grief, he is such a freak. I feel like we’re in mortal danger while this lunatic is in control.

@38: I keep thinking of chat. She would be saying “the dark times are over!”.

@40: Yep, time to take the keys away from him.

I used to be ambivalent about Beto. But his comments about the Senate being beneath him changed that decisively.

At least John Hickenlooper just announced that will run for the Senate, challenging Cory Gardner.

@43: That’s pretty much me too D. He’s believing his own hype.

MB, forgot to say earlier that I love the title of this post! You nailed it.

@41, Yes! Dear Chatblu. She is missed.

Initially I was with you, Annie, and thought the title nailed it. But after yesterday and today I think that lowballs it. The messiah drivel and the Jewish disloyalty mess? The Onion couldn’t come up with it because fiction has to be plausible.

Thanks Annie! I did work hard on that. But I can’t help agreeing with Quixote too. At a certain point the crazy can’t even be processed by a satirical publication. And yet, the mainstream press still writes about him as though he is a real President. They should be demanding he resign every d*mn day for being a lunatic racist traitor who stole the 2016 election.

I am really wondering what will happen with Epstein’s death. If I ordered a dinner that smelled this fishy, I’d be speaking to the manager post-haste.

PS, Beto is another entitled white guy who thinks he deserves the Presidency cause penis. Hard pass.

@48: You sometimes have to go look for it (the craziness being called for what it is)

Well no. Maybe on the opinion page columns by one individual but that’s about it.

Rick Wilson (former R) had a good opinion piece at The Daily Beast but only on the “subscriber”, i.e. pay part. Oh well.

And there was this at the NY Times but it’s trying to force me to create an account and uh, no.

Note: 2 links cuz I’m allowed. LOL

David Koch is dead. 🙂

@51: Hope he and Epstein are roasting in Hell.

“I hereby order”.

I hereby order’: Trump mocked for highly formal, meaningless decree

The man is bat shit crazy.

Luna,

“@10, White and gay. Wonder if he’ll outlast Beto’s trend. I’d much rather have Beto if I had to choose between 2 younger white guys with little experience.”

Let’s see, a list of all the men that need to be Prez before the first woman:

White men for 235 years
One black/white man for 8 years
One man of each faith
One man that is gay, one that is bi
One man that is of each ethnicity
One man missing a leg, arm, hand or foot

Maybe, first woman…
