Bless Me, Constant Reader, For I Have Sinned.

     It has been 15 days since my last rant.
     Yeah, this was my reaction when i noticed the date of my last post and for that, for those few of you who have stuck by me when everyone else fled during the friendly fascist days of Obama, I have no excuses...
     ...except to say that I've been in the teeth of a new book since I put The Doll Maker into the submission swim. It's another Scott Carson novel, well, sort of, and while I don't want to give away anything, let's just say I started it on March 12th and, as of yesterday, it's already gotten up to 97,761 words, which is an average of over 2170 words a day. You try doing that for 45 days in a row and tell me how much blogging and the research that goes behind it you do.
     But that's not to say that I've been keeping my head in the sand. I still know what's going on. In short order, working my way back a bit...

     ...Scott Pruitt got butt-fucked on the floor of the House today, with one New Jersey Congressman saying he was opening up a sixth investigation into Pruitt's spending habits, including his $43,000 soundproof Cone of Silence at his EPA office and renting out a condo from an energy lobbyist for $50 a night that he still can't pay.
     Of course, Pruiit's claiming the House Democrats were mean to him because of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Of course he is.

     After a second trial by jury, Bill Cosby, America's Favorite Dirty Old Man, was finally convicted on three counts for raping a woman 14 years ago. Considering that he drugged her before having non-consensual sex with her, I don't know why they didn't charge him with 1st degree rape since it seemed, well, premeditated. But, either way. that's when happens when you try to play Hide the Jello Pudding Pop with women.

     Looks as if the Russian fix was in long before Trump threw his jester cap in the ring in 2015. Because it just came out that Steve Bannon had ordered Putin messaging tests to be done at his old company, Cambridge Analytica. You remember them, right? Those are the same assholes who harvested your Facebook data with Facebook's blessing, even thought it meant harvesting non-FB data on your cell phone and everywhere else without our knowledge, permission or forewarning.

     Today, four Republicans united with Democrats to pass a bill protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller with the usual assholes voting against it. Among the Usual Suspects: Orrin Hatch (Utah), Mike Lee (Utah), John Cornyn (Texas), Mike Crapo (Idaho), Ben Sasse (Neb.), John Kennedy (La.) and Ted Cruz (Texas), who's really loving himself some Trump these days.

     A crazy old man called Fox & Frauds this morning, Hilarity ensured.

     Spycraft, statecraft, what the fuck's the difference? Mike Pompeo was snapped off at Langley and snapped on at Foggy Bottom, thanks to Senate Republicans who shoehorned another Christian zealot into another important position of power. But Pompeo's perfectly capable of being Secretary of State, says Sarah Huckabee Sanders. See?
     Here's a photo of him shaking hands with Kim Jong Un at a secret meeting that took place during the Easter Week! (Kim Jong Un's not really unenthused. That's just his soft, jiggling, second generation dictator resting face.) Congratulations, Mikey. You just joined that elite inner circle that includes the hairdresser that gets Un's hair to look like an anvil.

     Paul Ryan just fired the House Chaplain. The reasons number from him being too aligned with the Democrats to him inviting a Muslim Imam to deliver a prayer in the House. While I don't believe there should be a House chaplain (separation of church and state and all that), the reasons for this are dodgy no matter how you cut it. To show you what a real Profile in Courage Nancy Pelosi is, she was told about this beforehand and Ryan said he wouldn't fire Chaplain Conroy if Pelosi objected. She didn't but privately disagreed with Ryan's decision. And finally...

     As she went to work at the White House, Melania got into the spirit of things on Take Your Child to Work Day.

That is a stunning writing run. I can't even imagine...

Judging by the news here, you're probably better off writing than keeping up with current events...

Ordinarily, I'd say you're right but whatever few readers I have left will still expect something. Besides, this is an election year.

Don't you worry about us. You just write! Make it happen! Get those books out there and sell 'em!

Comrade: You'll love the one I'm working on, A Game of Hangman. It's a Tatterdemalion/Gods of Our Fathers crossover and your boy Van Zant's in a few of the chapters, as well as Katz, Bulfinch and Revere.

Oh, man. That sounds pretty awesome. Love Van Zant...

I know. That's why I specifically called you out. I'm also planning a full Van Zant/Delmonico crossover that takes place in NYC & Boston in 1888.
