Gotham City Digest

(Just blame it all on Trump. Posterity will agree with us.)

     I don't care what Cillizza says, I like Duckworth the most, with Whitmer second. Tammy would make mincemeat out of Pence in the VP debate.

     “This is probably a very bad analogy, but I’d say (Pence) is like the very supportive, submissive wife to Trump. He does the hard work, and the husband gets the glory.”
      And he's sloppy on the backstroke and hardly gags anymore when swallowing.

      Yes, he wants to be on Mount Rushmore. Yes, he is completely insane.

      Trump's weekend:
      1) Asked the Governor of South Dakota to put him on Mount Rushmore.
      2) Peter Navarro said "the Lord" gives Trump the right to write whatever laws he sees fit.
      3) Navarro had a screaming match with Steve Mnuchin in the Oval Office while Trump watched.
      4) Major GOP donors bailed on Trump, seeing his campaign as a lost cause.
      5) Held a fundraiser in the NJ house of a dead friend who died last April of the coronavirus he refused to control.
      6) Signed four executive orders that even his own aides admit is bullshit.
      7) Trump admitted those executive orders will get him sued.
      8) Republicans go on three day weekend and Trump goes on a four day weekend in a month with no holidays then blames Democrats for not passing a stimulus bill for which McConnell refused to hold a vote.
      9) Claimed his HBO-Axios interview was "great television."

      Trump is so scared shitless of debating Biden he actually put down his golf clubs.

      "I've been involved personally. You know, through my representatives."
Image may contain: 1 person, text that says 'I'M SORRY, WHAT?'

    Talk about a freight train of schadenfreude. Remember Jim Continenza, the Kodak chairman who was given 1.75 million shares of Kodak stock the day before the government announced it would get a $765 million loan?
    Yeah, forget all that. That once soaring stock just tanked on Wall Street after that same government announced it was withholding the loan and investigating Kodak for insider trading.

     Kamala Harris has died. No, not that one, the other one.

     Yes, Senator Froth, Rick Santorum, just blamed Obama for Trump's useless Executive Actions.

     Does anyone know what the hell happened in Baltimore?

     Oh, this is all fucking Trump needs to hear.

     Cartoon intermission.

     Two black kids were assaulted by a homeless man. Guess which ones white Santa Clarita Sheriff's deputies draw down on and arrested?

    Yes, Nikki, because microwave popcorn is much more important to get on time than mail in ballots during a pandemic that's killed over 162,000 Americans. Go whine to Dejoy, you entitled right wing douchebag.

     "Do as I say, not as I do, mofos."

     When right wing fifth columnists go postal on the postal service.

    Did you know the only thing keeping fascist Republican scum from using guns to intimidate voters of color for nearly 40 years was a court-ordered consent decree? That was the only reason why we haven't seen armed poll watchers.
   This year, all that changed in 2018 when Democrats couldn't convince an obviously right wing judge to renew it.
    As you can guess, the armed right wing thugs are back.

     "(T)he heads were chopped off a life-sized campaign sign featuring Joe Kimok, who is white, and his wife, Jordanne, who is black. The cardboard heads were placed nearby on makeshift pikes." Florida Man strikes again.

     I'm not sure I understand why the adjective "skilled" requires a turbo boost from the prefix "up" but this is no insightful revelation. 20 years ago, I was a QC inspector for an automotive/aerospace/aeronautics/medical company. I knew ISO 9001 protocols, used high tech testing equipment like MMIs to inspect pieces with tight tolerances, worked in Class 10000 clean rooms making and inspecting medical grade hoses and seals. I knew how to do a First Article inspection myself, worked with engineers from clients in source inspections, knew statistical analysis and was on the fast track to getting my DSQR certification.
      Then the right wing scum running our company called in management consultants who suggested mass layoffs in order to turn our $12,000,000 a year company into an $18,000,000 a year company. They folded a few years later when they sold out to a much larger Swedish company.
      I tried for years to get back into Quality Control but never could get even an entry level position because they were looking for someone better, someone with Sigma 6 and DSQR credentials and they always seemed to find someone better than me.
     We've essentially left half our workforce behind in the craze for automation, downsizing and offshoring jobs overseas. I was a skilled worker. But I wasn't upskilled. (Tip o' the tinfoil hat to Constant Reader, CC.).

     It's sad that the opposition party has to take these precautions yet these are the times in which we live. Just like the Nazis destroyed records in the bunker and concentration camps when the Americans and Soviets were closing in, this is exactly the sort of dick move Trump will pull.

     Your Karen o' the day.

     I have to admit, I've never seen a guy take nine rounds from a 9 mil and still keep charging. I suspect he was on PCP.

      Again, something a totally innocent guy would do.

      Reap it, motherfucker. You don't get to scuttle away from something you helped create.

      You haven't been listening to Da Da lately, have you?

      “I’ve always said that I’m very, very Republican, but he’s starting to turn me away.”
     Only now, when your life's in danger? Fuck you, you typical Republican frog in the boiling water.

     "More than 70 of the companies that got PSP and PPP awards also show up among the EIDL recipients, making them triple-dippers." Typical avaricious corporate scum.

      Yeah, how DARE China act like us in Latin America and the Middle East?

      "Trump and his Republican allies appear to have settled on a scheme:.. Trick the public into thinking they’re taking bold action, while effectively doing nothing...
       Unfortunately, this a strategy that all too often gets an assist from the mainstream media, which... still keeps getting caught in deeply ingrained bad habits, such as an insistence on false equivalence and a tendency to parrot false White House talking points in headlines. The result is a sea of misleading stories or news segments that portray Republicans as well-meaning, when the real story is about a degree of malice toward the public that’s so breathtaking it beggars belief."  Salon

     This is coming from a walking brain stem who's so stupid he thinks the Gettysburg Address is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

      And I hope the same happens to your next reelection campaign, you Wisconsin fuck stick.

      It seems the stupid have learned to multiply. And finally...

     “If they are the leaders who will define the future of the Republican Party, the party doesn’t deserve to have a future.” Das Boot.

At least China isn't going to use armed thugs to intimidate voters in next month's Legislative Council elections in Hong Kong, which its side was predicted to lose. It simply ordered the elections postponed for a year.

The Repubs apparently have a history of behaving like Third World paramilitaries come election time. And the Dems let them get away with it. (What else is new?)
