Wednesday Reads: “Ass”-turdriod from the #Shithole …White House?

Okay, hope you can see the video below, entitled…Bring on the Asteroid: (see link if not)

I thought the video was cute…

Meanwhile in Michigan, a real earthbound hunk of space rock did make an appearance: | Meteor that flew over Michigan caused a 2.0 earthquake

The National Weather Service Detroit said the the United States Geological Survey confirmed that the meteor occurred around 8:10 p.m. It caused a 2.0 earthquake.

I imagine that must have been some big chunk of meteor to cause an earthquake.

If you go to the link you will see some video clips and tweets from local area viewers who saw, and felt, the big orange boom.


And now the cartoons:

    So, my mom is reading the Fire and Fury book…she says she is at the point where it has gotten frightening. Absolutely disgustingly frightening.

  2. Enheduanna says:

    Great roundup JJ – I had no idea there was a meteor. The video is hysterical. And I love Pat Bagley’s “sewer rapture” toon – hahahahahhaa so true

    Hope you and your Mom are doing well – we got an inch of snow here in Cobb County and it’s freezing cold!

    • Minkoff Minx says:

      Thanks Enheduanna, Ma has been sleeping a lot…still waiting to start her new treatment. We got about two inches up here in Banjoville and it is still snowing…but the bad thing is the ice.

    and this

    Trump says privately that a terror attack could save him and GOP from 2018 election bloodbath: report

    • Enheduanna says:

      From the Rawstory article – “(I)f the president and his top staff are not so concerned with democracy but purely political power, that’s a terrifying proposition,” said Yglesias.”

      If?? I think it’s patently obvious the GOP has no interest in democracy – they can’t win elections unless they’re rigged. They sure as hell don’t want POC to vote. Political power is all they’ve ever been interested in.

      • quixote says:

        As you say, IF??? The way the “respectable” media keeps pushing its “let’s pretend everything is normal” frame is beyond boring. The emperor has no clothes. Waiting for somebody to notice is a lot less funny than it was in the story.

      • palhart says:

        Enheduanna, make reservations at the Blue Ridge Grill and take your mind off the shit-hole prez. That wonderful grill popped into my mind as I’ve been snow-bound and eating my regular, boring fare.

        • Enheduanna says:

          palhart – excellent idea! I actually quit watching MSNBC a few weeks ago. I don’t even watch Maddow anymore – I simply cannot deal with it anymore.

  4. Enheduanna says:

    New Jersey’s newly-elected Dem governor sworn in today!

    I know it’s too much to hope for that Christie disappears from public view….

    • Catscatscats says:

      What a horrible way to die! Littering, especially products that won’t break down, is more than an eyesore, it is deadly to living things.

  7. NW Luna says:

    Really good comics today, JJ. But then you always do a good round-up.

  8. NW Luna says:

    Attacking Cory Booker? Nothing progressive about that. But we already know that about them.
