Court of Public Opinion Will Convict Trump, Not Flaccid Senators


We should expect nothing less, and yet why are we still surprised when the bulk of limp and floppy Republicans show their true colors? Yesterday’s opening arguments in Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial — devoted purely to the procedural question of whether the Senate has constitutional authority to try him — perfectly foreshadowed that cowardly Republican Senators lack the character, fortitude and cajones to do the right thing. No amount of sound legal arguments, emotional […]

It’s Official — The GOP is now the Party of QAnon and Space Lasers, Fighting Baby-Eating Pedophiles


A new poll shows Republican voters prefer Marjorie Taylor Greene over Liz Cheney by a wide margin — poll conducted before Greene’s denouncement of conspiracy theories today (and getting booted from two House committees) It’s been quite the 24-hour whirlwind inside the House of Representatives, which culminated in a party-line vote today to strip MTG (Marjorie Taylor Greene) of two committee assignments due to her incendiary remarks, videos and social media posts espousing violence against other […]

Two Groundhogs, Two Forecasts — My Bet’s On Staten Island Chuck!


Improving virus and economy plus tons of political schadenfreude point to a brighter future Who knew the nation had more than one marmot meteorologist? While Punxsutawney Phil always steals the spotlight on Groundhog Day, there’s a rival rodent in New York City called Staten Island Chuck, who’s actually a better predictor of winter forecasts and hasn’t gotten his due props. In a live-streamed, unattended Covid-safe event in Punxsutawney, Pa this morning, Phil slumbered out of his […]


Super Villain Josh Hawley confused why people don't like him after inciting insurrection. Cartoon "Josh Hawley" by Taylor Jones, Politicalcartoons.com

Super Villain Josh Hawley Doesn’t Know Why People Don’t Like Him. Seriously.


Seditious traitor Josh Hawley took to the gossip rag New York Post yesterday, to complain his free speech is being muzzled and people don’t like him after he instigated the January 6 Capitol riot. No, this is not a Fark headline. He is that clueless, or more likely just pretending to be. Hawley, a Republican Senator from Missouri, has been roundly thrashed for his role in the storming of the Capitol by MAGA insurrectionists three […]


Cuban American Artist Edel Rodriguez's Minimalist Rage Defined the Era of Trump
2020 Election

A Tribute to Edel Rodriguez, Whose Trumprageous Art Defined an Era and Gave Us Hope


In a fitting end to the Trump era, artist Edel Rodriguez closes out his nemesis’s presidency with one last magazine cover — a tattered and torn American flag at half staff, that perfectly sums up not just the failed MAGA coup, but the last four years. The cover image, which appears on today’s issue of The New Yorker, is titled “After the Insurrection.” Rodriguez, who as a teenager fled with his family to the U.S. […]

Oh MyPillow Guy, How Do You Sleep at Night After Pushing Martial Law?


Probably on an adjustable interlocking-foam-filled premium pillow is my guess, but also maybe fitfully, because the MAGA coup failed and the only recourse left is martial law. Obviously. In fact so clear is this strategy to save MAGAworld from Joe Biden and the Libs, that MyPillow Guy Mike Lindell briefed Donald Trump about this very thing yesterday at the White House. We have Washington Post staff photographer Jabin Botsford and his telephoto lens to thank for […]

Why Did Fox Just Reveal Biden’s Location for Inaugural Eve?


Do we need to ask why Fox News is the only media outlet to manufacture a fake news story so it can reveal Joe Biden’s whereabouts the night before the inauguration? This is not a rhetorical question. In a non-bylined pretend story posted over night, Fox’s website leads a “Live Update” section with a headline announcing where President Elect Biden and his wife will be staying the night before his inauguration. A total of three […]

Inside Job – MAGA Leader Says GOP Reps Biggs, Brooks and Gosar Helped Plan Insurrection


As Republicans grapple with purging their own deplorables, three new GOPers are identified as helping to plan the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. All three are House Congressional Republicans — two from Arizona: Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar, and Mo Brooks from Alabama. The Washington Post reports today that all three lawmakers have been named as complicit in last week’s deadly riot in a now-deleted Twitter video (that still lives here) made by a […]

Melania’s Feelings Are Hurt, Twitter Says I Really Don’t Care Do U?


After five days of silence Melania Trump issued a whiney, plagiarized statement about the January 6 Capitol riot, ignoring her husband’s role as ring leader and saying people are being mean to her. Twitter yawned and said, I really don’t care do U? Yesterday’s tone-deaf statement, heavily plagiarized from one of her earlier speeches, completely misjudges the mood of the country. Shocker. The not-for-much-longer First Lady condemned last week’s violence without addressing its cause (her […]

All the Best Political Cartoons from a Horrendous and Monumental Week


I don’t normally submit a post with my round-ups of the week’s best political cartoons, but this is an exceptional week — and not in a good way aside from Democrats capturing two Georgia Senate seats. Due to the sheer number of monumental events we witnessed as a nation this week, political cartoonists worked overtime producing an unprecedented number of illustrations serving as commentary on the week. I culled very few from my subscription service […]

Who Will Be Washington’s Top Jackass After Trump’s Eviction?


With only 12 days until Donald Trump’s eviction (unless he’s impeached first) one big question is who will replace him as Washington’s Top Assling when he’s gone? Yes I am binging The New Kingdom while watching Democracy burn, and also noticing Republican Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz are locked in a tight race to carry the mantle as Top Turd. Trump, Hawley and Cruz are now all pariahs, all given ownership to Wedneday’s Insurrection […]

In Ultimate Darwinian Move, MAGA Insurgents Help Police ID Them by Shunning Masks, Posting to Social Media


Twenty-four hours after storming the Capitol in Trump’s failed coup, MAGA foot soldiers are being identified for their crimes by citizen sleuths based on a growing collection of photos from the insurgency. The Metro Police of Washington D.C. is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for anyone who can help ID “persons of interest” on its website and/or tips which will lead to the arrest and indictment of yesterday’s anarchists. Four people died after […]

Unhinged Trump Incites D.C. Coup, Then Tries to Un-Do it by Tweet


WTF just happened today? I have changed the headline to this story three times already. First I was writing about Merrick Garland being Joe Biden’s pick for Attorney General. Then I was linking that tidbit to Mitch McConnell’s Senate floor speech, one of the finest of his careers I posit, one that left liberals especially grateful for  his rebuking Donald Trump’s insane quest to overturn November’s election. McConnell, I duly note, is now outgoing Majority […]

Buckle Up Kids, Democracy’s In for a Bumpy Ride!


An increasingly desperate, delusional and dumb-as-duck president kicks off historic week in Washington with criminal phone call caught on tape. Oh God, it’s only Monday. With 16 days to go until his ouster, Donald Trump once again stars in a sh*t show of his own making, a penultimate, Red Wedding episode that will end predictably but not without substantial carnage. Episode “Criminal Call” began yesterday when The Washington Post reported on a (even by Dotard […]
