sad crying boy in love eye wallpapers - cropped

It’s 11:57 p.m., Thursday, January 19, 2017, California time, as I write this. As I type the next paragraph or two, this day will become tomorrow, January 20, 2017. Inauguration Day.

I am in deep mourning.

I did not believe during the primary season that Donald Trump would become the Republican nominee. I believed strongly (foolish me!) that the vertebrate … Continue reading

CNN’s Donna Bash interviewed Mike Pence on Wednesday, January 18.

Let that thought settle for a second, please. Yes, that Mike Pence and that CNN—the megagigantic news outlet that Donald Trump referred to as fake news, while refusing to take a question from CNN’s Jim Acosta last week.

Why We Are PenceWatching

You may have noticed there’s a lot of Trumpstuff going on. Bizarre appointments of the uniquely-unqualified to powerful positions. Strange bedfellows, ala Vladimir Putin. A startling lack of diversity in the Presidential Succession–old white guys with suspect belief systems, military malfeasance, and even questionable patriotism.

More importantly, what will happen? We … Continue reading

Harder still is watching the daily assault of WTFisms that are being thrown at us. Cabinet picks that have no basis in reason. We have entered the realm of the Late Night … Continue reading

That Tuesday afternoon, I got out the pots. The two big pots I was going to carry outside and bang together in jubilation when they called the night for Hillary.

Later, crestfallen, I put the pots away. The next day I cried. I wandered around the house. Disbelief. Astonishment.

Slowly, slowly, it sunk in. We had elected Mr. Trump.

We … Continue reading

PENCE TO LOUISIANA DECEMBER 3

Will this election never end?

Soon and very soon. December 10 is the day Louisianans vote for a senator in a run-off between Democrat Foster Campbell and Republican John Kennedy.

Yeah, I know, I know. There really are people who will vote for a Republican named John Kennedy just because his name is John Kennedy. It’s those pesky “undecideds.” This … Continue reading
