Back when I first came to DC in the early 1980s, the CSX Railroad Bridge across the outer loop of I-495 between Georgia and Connecticut Avenues (just before the Mormon Church) looked something like this: Earlier versions of the graffiti included this one, with wadded up newspaper instead of spray paint. This is from the Montgomery Journal in the mid-1970s…. Read more »
The competition for second place behind Donald Trump’s America First campaign is heating up, as the Swiss have entered the fray. Highlights: “Look at those mountains. Those big fat mountains. We’re not flat, like for example the Netherlands. They are so flat. Total disaster. We have the best women. They’re all 10s.”
The Dutch Jon Stewart has an absolutely hilarious way of accommodating Donald Trump. I prefer resistance but this humorous groveling accomplishes more than some Democratic senators I could mention. Cough. Ahem.
Votecastr has slowed down a bit the last few minutes, so here’s some music for Dave Asche and all of you tired people out there who need a little pick me up before darkness sets in soon – hopefully only literally and not figuratively in the form of a Trump victory. Anyway, here’s a couple of campaign tunes for you… Read more »
While you wait anxiously for more data, here’s a 65 word list of the important principles we learned during the campaign: Every election has its own language.

Funny or Die brings us the latest “We Are The World” style celebrity video, a foul-mouthed, desperate public service announcement about the importance of voting for Hillary Clinton. I’d embed it but the sound on the bootleg YouTube version is awful. The video itself, however, is a work of comedic genius. Enjoy.
Of course you know what I’m talking about. You’d have to be in a coma to not know (actually, you’d be in the hospital and the TV would be blaring all day so even then you’d know on some sort of subsconscious level). I posted my apolitical thoughts on the subject last night, which you can read here. On the political… Read more »
One of the more puckish of my many witty readers offered a pithy suggestion for Hillary Clinton’s press people to use in response to concerns about her health. In fact, it’s one line. “Oh, she’s got the Walking Pneumonia all right, but no way does she have the Boogie Woogie Flu.”
In response to this piece of self-loathing shit right here A founder of the Latinos for Trump group on Thursday warned that without Donald Trump in the White House, there would be “taco trucks on every corner” in America. “My culture is a very dominant culture,” the Mexican-born Marco Gutierrez said on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes.” “It is imposing… Read more »
With all the horrible recent political talk, whether it be Trump and immigration, Hogan on school start dates, and the like, it’s refreshing and calming to come across something that’s just, well, too awesome for words. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Congressman John Lewis, civil rights icon and now, crowd surfer on Colbert. If this doesn’t brighten your day, I can’t… Read more »
