Rudy & His Friends

Das Vedanya Rooody & Friends. Boris Badenov & Natasha Fatale. You all gambled the Trump Presidency for dirt on the Bidens and a few rubles in Pottsylvania. Relegated the American government to cartoon characters from the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show.

See you at the Senate trial. Dudley Do-Right McConnell vs. Schiffty Schiff & Snidely Schumer. The reality television spectacle of the decade.

Bullwinkle dahling. We retire to Mar-a-Lago now? Dah. We go.

UnPrecedential

Opinion columns widely lament the dilution of impeachment. As with all things Trump. Bad behavior has become the norm. By him and as the IG Report showed many others in government. So if everything is bad. Nothing is bad.

Two old white guys steadily lead the Democrat pack. Biden and Bernie. Frank Bruni wonders if Mayor Pete is too young. Mike Bloomberg is too rich. Elizabeth & Amy too female. So. Then. Who?

On the fun side. The Presidents Cup. Golf in Australia on TV last night. U.S. vs. Non-European International players. Despite a certain son saying I’m the only person lame enough to have watched it, seeing Captain Tiger play well was great. So there.

Morning Chyrons

How to start the day.

CNN: 2 Giuliani associates arrested for campaign finance violations

FOX: Investigation widens of Hunter Biden & Burisma in Ukraine

MSNBC: Turkey invades U.S. Allies in Syria

Sacrificial Joe

Dems have realized that Joe Biden is not the most electable. So decided to throw him under the bus. In order to get rid of Trump.

The Ukraine saga is better than fiction. With such characters as Hunter Biden, John Kerry’s stepson Chris Heinz, and Whitey Bulger’s nephew. Yeah. Maybe nothing illegal. But. Hey. It’s filled with swamp rats.

So. Biden’s star is tarnished with a Trump & Clinton-esque tale of a family’s personal financial gain from its political ties. Who benefits most? Warren. Or… careful what you’ve set in motion.

Will it ultimately be Trump?

Homelandia

For a TV-addicted Prez, it’s odd that he missed 8 seasons of HBO’s Homeland. He’d have learned that when you go to introduce yourself to the CIA, you shouldn’t diss their fallen heroes. Or. Constantly bash their former and current leadership. The Deep State may not be fictitious.

Yes. You crossed the wrong people. Saul, Carrie, Dar. They can’t even trust each other. What made you think they wouldn’t take you down? See Whistleblower. CIA. Hey. You asked for it.

Creating a Clamor

Clashing competitions to create a clamor. Democrats. Media. Trump himself. The attention-seeker-in chief. On a par with impeachment-crying-wolves. Calling for it since before the inauguration. There’s fodder for all. Biden’s son got rich ’cause Daddy was Veep. Trump kids on the hot seat, too. American people see politics, profits, ratings.

Accomplished. Nothing. Except. Lots of noise.

Monday Grind

Rafa Nadal brilliantly battled out a 5-set grunting grind against Russia’s relentless Steely Dan Medvedev. A match for the ages.

U.S. Open has a new Queen. Romanian Canadian Anrdreescu. Serena slayer. Prez Trudeau sent congrats. While Meghan ditched her royal duties for a friend. Fashion week should rethink purple rain. Anna.

Logan Roy quotes Shakespeare to Cherry Jones. “Just Take the Money”.  The kids are not all right. Marcia goes rogue. Cousin Gregory rising.

Mark Sanford announces he’ll run against Trump for the Republican nom. He’ll focus on ethics and honesty in the party? That’s rich. Biden couldn’t muster a crowd at New Hampshire’s Dem convention. While Warren’s appearance filled a rowdy arena. Iowa & New Hampshire don’t seem to be going Joe’s way. But. Hey. There’s always Delaware.

For a belly laugh. Conan Without Borders in Greenland. Hilarious. Also his trip with sidekick to Italy and Japan. Bourdain-esque with lots of funny. ABC’s Sunday Rahm & Christie show continues to entertain.

Yankees won. Giants lost. Niners won. Pats. Duh. As NFL’s contracts get fatter, injured list gets longer. Good Luck!

Area 51 Where Are You?

Let’s all head to AlienStock and the Desert of the Great American Southwest. Area 51. West of the Rockies. You are on the air. Yes. Of course Art Bell will be there. And Whitley Strieber. As will Lizard Men. And Greys. Probing bodies. Mining minds. Extraterrestrially speaking. So. Hop on that Trailways bus. Close encounters guaranteed.

Beats bleary-eyed visions of Trump 24/7 on TV.

Do the Hustle

Overt street strumpets. Anything for a donation or a vote.

Elizabeth Warren ingratiates herself to faux ancestors. American Indians. In Iowa. Bernie Sanders courts criminals in and out of prison. He’s desperate. Kirsten Gillibrand now ready to give #metoo villains Franken et al a second chance. Ditto. Julián Castro brazenly goes after dog lovers’ dollars calling for shelters to collar euthanizing. Where will all those pups go? Oh yeah. Airplanes. Hotels. Restaurants. Right.

Pete Buttigieg trots out his husband Chasten on Fire Island and in Provincetown. LGBQRST coin. Kamala Harris professes to be a capitalist while sipping rosé with CEO’s in the Hamptons. Cory Booker is indiscriminate. Kinda like Trump who pretends to pray with Evangelicals. And of course Joe. Barack’s best friend. Sad.

Bas-Relief

Major sigh as Trump squints at McCain-esque Hawks Graham, Bolton, Pompeo and Pence. Bomb. Bomb Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Iran. He said no! Because people may die? Don’t remember hearing that before. So. Okay. Yes. Many faces of the President. But for now. We’ll take it.

Crying Wolfowitz and the Cheneys twisting on the wall.
