It will soon be over

Our side is corrupt, but the other side is more corrupt.

“Be quiet and turn up the TV. I want to hear this campaign ad.”

Said no one ever.

We are watching

Our side is corrupt, but the other side is more corrupt.

Trump tweet:

“I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business.”

NYT report ((10/8/2020):

Compounding the political risk (of that tweet), Mr. Trump said the halt in stimulus negotiations would give Republicans time to focus on quickly confirming his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, a move that polls have shown is unpopular with voters. By contrast, Americans are overwhelmingly in favor of another stimulus bill.

Note to Amy Coney Barrett:

Being of such high intelligence and moral standing, I am sure you see that the narcissist president is using you as a tool to defend him against being convicted of crimes. We all know the president cares only about himself. He wants you on the court to rule in his favor so he won’t go to jail or have to pay fines and back taxes.

You will be asked about this in your confirmation hearing. I assume you will inform the American people that you will recuse yourself from cases involving Trump’s election. Your intelligence and morality will be in full view because Americans know what it means to have a narcissistic president. We assume you do, too–being of such high intelligence and moral standing.

Or maybe you are not intelligent and morally upstanding. Maybe you, too, care more about your personal causes than the American people. Just maybe–we will see.

Update

Mario Nicolais, a USA Opinion contributor, argued the same thing on 10/12/20202. He did not include the “we are watching” idea. But, of course, we are watching.

We are great again

Our side is corrupt, but the other side is more corrupt.

President Trump says we have turned the corner with the virus, and the economy is great. The court jester is at it again.

Chris Wallace: Where have you been?

Our side is corrupt, but the other side is more corrupt.

Headline:

Chris Wallace Blames Trump For Debate Chaos: He Bears ‘Primary Responsibility’

Quote from story:

He (Wallace) said that initially, when Trump started engaging Biden, he thought, “We’re going to have a real debate here.”

(POLITICS 10/01/2020)

Really, Chris Wallace? You did not think, “Oh shit! Here we go?” You must get your news from Fox.

Is Trump grabbing more pussies?

Our side is corrupt, but the other side is more corrupt.

Female immigrant detainees in Irwin County, Georgia, report that they were forced to undergo unnecessary invasive gynecological procedures (hysterectomies in some cases). Is Trump having pussies sent to him for grabbing?

When you are a star, you know, they let you do it.

College football returns

Our side is corrupt, but the other side is more corrupt.

Behind the headlines:

The Big Ten has reversed itself and decided to play an 8-game football season. Everything is back to normal — college football is mostly about the money, but it is also about the opportunity for players to have the experiences they agreed to when they accepted their scholarships.

From an AP story on college football’s return:

The Southeastern Conference, which intends to begin a league-only schedule on Sept. 26, is requiring players to be tested three times a week, as are the A.C.C. and the Big 12.

I hope someone keeps track of which players are kept out of games. Will they be starters or second- and third-stringers? In other words, will playing time for those who test positive depend on a player’s star quality?

Just think about it. If you are a coach, what better way to affect your opponent’s season than to have your COVID-positive player, the identity of which you have shielded, line up against the other team’s star lineman or skill-position player? And, when the opponent’s star player tests positive the next week, will that coach be tempted to shield the result, too?

This is an integrity test for institutions of higher education. How will they perform? Does anybody want to place a bet?

Dear Mr. President:

Our side is corrupt, but the other side is more corrupt.

I have to wear a mask because of inconsiderate people like you. When will you learn this simple truth?

Incompetence

Or side is corrupt, but the other side is more corrupt.

Headline:

Trump attacks mayor after deadly shooting in Portland

Story:

“Wheeler is incompetent, much like Sleepy Joe Biden,” Trump said of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler.

One unidentified person was killed in the Saturday night shooting, and police are seeking more information about the incident. It occurred at the same time as clashes between Trump’s supporters and protesters in the city streets.

One person dead–Mayor incompetent.

Applying the “Trump rule:”

More than 180,000 people dead–President incompetent.

It is too easy to make fun of this incompetent fool. He is the court jester–right?

Today Trump was formally nominated for a second term

Our side is corrupt, but the the other side is more corrupt.

I did not need a single book by a relative or an audiotape of a sister to know that Donald Trump is a waste of a human being. I wonder when Republicans will discover that.

Oh–I forgot–democratic politics is the art of getting re-elected.

Democrat Proclamation

Our side is corrupt, but the other side is more corrupt.

Now that the USPS has become a tool of the White House, Democrats should proclaim this for the next 75 days:

“Under no circumstances will a Democrat concede an election loss in the 2020 election.”

Dear Tom Perez:

Say after me — “Under no circumstances will a Democrat concede an election loss in the 2020 election.” For once, it would get the Democrats ahead of Republican strategists.

Addendum:

Now that Republicans are sponsoring law enforcement at polling places, Democrats should proclaim:

“Under no circumstances will a Democrat concede an election loss in the 2020 election.”
