More of Mr. Garvey

I love this guy. (Substitute Teacher Part Two)

Just ignore him, okay?

I was convinced last year that the only reason Donnie Two Scoops was running for president was because he wanted the title and the prestige that goes with it. In short, he just wanted to be the biggest TV star in the world, and didn't give a damn about the duties of the office. After seven months of eating his shit sandwich, I've decided that Donnie really does want the status without the responsibilities. His indifference will be a factor to consider as events play out over the next year or two.

Corny Dog

The only thing that keeps John Cornyn from being the worst U.S. Senator from Texas in history is that Rafael (Ted) Cruz is the other one.

Share the pie? Hell no.

This analogy is the easiest way for me to understand people in Covfefe's cult of aggrieved snowflakes: If white people can't have the whole pie, it's the same as not getting any pie at all.

My opinion is that the fastest way to get Steve Bannon out of his current position as co-precedent (sic) would be for Barack Obama to appear with Sean Hannity on Fox News, and say that Bannon is easily the best thing about the Covfefe administration.

Irony

It wasn't a surprise that so many Texas preachers appeared at a rally on the steps of the Capitol to support passage of the so-called potty bill. It was surprising that so many of the preachers were black. Not too long ago, black people in Texas were the ones being told who they could marry and which bathrooms they could use. Or which water fountains they could drink from.

Civics Lesson

Life is turning out to be a continuing education program for me. One of the things I've learned this year is that our system of government is full of weak spots and loopholes that I didn't realize were there. During my lifetime, the weak spots have been hidden because (a) most of our presidents understood and followed the honor system, or (b) when we had one who didn't, there was an opposition party with enough muscle in Congress to enforce the checks and balances provided by the Constitution.

Between competent, honorable presidents and divided government, the system operated effectively enough to conceal the weaknesses, and the American way was admired and envied by people around the world.

Suddenly, we have a so-called precedent (sic) who craps on the honor system and wipes his butt with pages out of the rule books. That would be horrifying in itself, but while this lunatic is shitting on our living room sofa, there's no opposition party with enough congressional muscle to wrestle him to the floor and get the cuffs on him.

Maybe there's enough left to help us survive the crisis. If we do, Congress needs to get busy on bipartisan legislation that will at least patch the weak spots that Donny Covfefe is exposing with his misconduct (emoluments, conflicts of interest, nepotism, collusion with foreign governments, etc). If the weak spots can be eliminated, that's even better.
