Wednesday Reads: tRumpaholics … Hump Day Cartoons 


One of the first things we were taught in my survey of politics course when I was Junior in college, was the importance of pens in Washington D.C. 

LBJ made them a big deal, when signing legislation…he would sign his name…each letter with a different pen, and then give this special pens out to those individuals “worthy” of receiving this particular enhanced acknowledgement. If you were lucky enough to get a pen from Johnson… you were a big deal in Washington. Those pens were like a gift from the king. 

It was just another form of manipulation that LBJ used to get what he wanted through congress. 

The pen give away has been used since then. We always see Presidents signing bills with a series of pens next to the documents. It is what it is. 

Now we come to the pretender in chief. 

This ridiculousness has happened:

This is not a bill. This is a fucking memo. 

It is like a Postit note to Congress. 


Now for the cartoons. *

*Sidenote here. I’ve written this post on Tuesday morning because my mother is meeting with the oncology surgeon on Wednesday…and I knew I would never be able to write the post the same day it was to be published. I’m sure tRump has done something totally embarrassing, so please be sure to update us all in the comments section below. 

I think the hands are drawn too big in this one:

      I lived in Holland for a while and love the Dutch language. It’s full of wonderful perfect multidimensional words like that.

      Uitwaaien is often used in the phrase “de muizenisse uitwaaien.” I’m not positive what the derivation of muizenisse is, but I think it’s from “muis” — mouse — and the ending is a compact, multidimensional way of meaning: mouse business, stuff associated with mice, fluff, mouse nests, frass, and you can keep going. So to me it’s always meant not just air your mind out, but air it out of all that accumulated kruft of stuffy, stinky mouse nests.

    After last night and the hearing today, my mind is officially blown. I hope everyone will be watching the hearing tomorrow. I think I should just make the morning post a live blog.
