Trump And Ryan Prove Comedy Is Easy, Governing Is Hard

It’s great to see two overly-cocky, buffoon blowhards brought down in front of the world. Paul Ryan thought the AHCA was a done deal. It’s a poor leader who overestimates his leadership abilities. But then the intelligence and abilities of Ryan have always been overestimated by the his own party and by the corporate media. If it wasn’t for his outsized ego based on no tangible evidence of any foundation for it, he would resign the Speakership. But only a total idiot would choose to be Speaker of the House with this GOP in the majority, Ryan has been that idiot since October 2015.

Trump’s blaming the failure of the bill on the Democrats. Trump came into his fraudulently-won presidency thinking it was all government by executive order, that he would run the federal government and the entire country as just mere Trump corporate subsidiaries. Except for the hard core delusional who still think Trump’s doing a great job, his own party now has proof of his ineptitude and his failure to grasp reality as he lives in his delusional world within his suite at the Mar-A-Lago.

Both men have been shown that it’s easy to oppose and talk big in superlatives and lies. In other words, comedy is easy, actual governing is hard, very hard. And neither are cut out fo the work.

Now, the only real and present danger is Turtle Man McConnell fast tracking the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to SCOTUS. Not sure if the coming Democratic filibuster will do nothing more than delay that vote but with this display of the total lack of Trump and Ryan’s influence on their own party, maybe the Dems have a shot providing another embarrassing setback for the GOP if somehow they can turn aside the Gorsuch nomination, which is a long shot.

Paul Ryan, The Naked Emperor Walking Around Masquerading As The House Speaker

It’s clear that Paul Ryan is probably the most laughably ineffectual and clueless Speaker of the House in history. His own party has no respect nor regard for him or his leadership “skills”. He’s clearly the naked Emperor walking around the House while many of his colleagues ridicule and deride him behind his back. He has been elected to two terms as Speaker because no other Republican wanted the job.
 
This slap in the face to both him and Trump is most richly deserved. Neither one of these dangerous clowns understand even the fundamentals of how politics works in this country. And that is what is currently saving us from the meanness and pain their self-serving egos and ambitions are intent on inflicting on us. If only enough evidence would be gathered and published to justify the Constitutional imperative for overturning last year’s election results so that we get rid of Mike Pence, too.

The Stooge In The House

I will preface this post by reminding people I do not support Hillary Clinton in any way, shape, or form. That being said, I avidly hope that the House of Representatives does vote to impeach her in an election year.

Why? Because for a Republican-controlled House of Representatives to impeach a Democratic presidential candidate would be absurdist political theatre at its best. It would make the Republicans the laughingstock of the the world–even more than they are now. Because it would put into sharp relief how partisan and loony that Party has become that they would reach that far and stoop that low to take someone they view as a danger to their own presidential candidates out of the race.

And it shows how utterly stupid a person and politician Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala) is. It brings out the Curly in me to want to shout “Oh Mo! Oh Mo! Nyuck, nyuck, nyuck, nyuck.”

That’s right, Mo, give your party yet another poke in the eye.

Netflix Is Full Of Mitt

Yesterday I started seeing an online Netflix ad for a Mitt Romney documentary, “MITT”,  that it’s showing exclusively. It’s a chance to get to know the Mittens you never knew.  And boy– are they right! Mitt’s showing us—hey, I’m just like you—with mussed hair above a pair of tired,  faintly hopeful eyes looking at the camera as if saying, “Do you accept me now?”  Mittens allowed tousling of his perfectly coiffed and dyed hair? Wow, it’s the FIRST thing I now know that I never knew!

But once the afterglow of discovery fades away, a gnawing question replaces it: why this documentary showing the “human” side of Romney now? If he possesses any reason—as opposed to intelligence—he’ll never run for president again.  So, what could be behind this? Hmmm…Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick is ending his term this year and has announced he won’t seek reelection.  Is Romney thinking that with the presidency forever out of his reach he just might try to return to the seat of his former glory? That would be very Mittens-like but since he hasn’t announced he’s running or set up an exploratory committee that I know of, it’s just conjecture on my part.

The Utah governor, Gary Herbert, just started his second term, but who wants to be the new governor of a state that officially refuses to recognize gay marriage and deprives little school kids of their unpaid lunches by throwing them in the garbage—right in front of them? That’s not the tousled-haired Mittens I know!

The House of Representatives is too small to hold a man of Romney’s wealth so that leaves the Senate.  No open seats in Utah and I think Massachusetts voters won’t be venturing back into the dark Right side any time soon. So, this leaves the Massachusetts governor’s office as his only possible target.  I mean, there had to be reason why Mitten’s guys paid Netflix all that money to run their vanity project.  And the director of this epic, inside look at the Mittens we preferred to stay far away from as opposed to wanting to get up close and personal? Greg Whiteley, with only two other credits to his name:  “New York Doll” which examined an ex-member of the New York Dolls who renounced his past when he became a Mormon, and “Resolved”, a documentary on high school debates that for some reason puts Koch Bros. employee SCOTUS Justice Sammy Alito front and center.  Either he was one of the high school debaters or that’s how he got his judging experience.

It took six years to make this documentary. Why did it take so long? It probably took that long for Whiteley to film enough footage to make Mitten’s life look interesting enough to fill 90 minutes.
