Random thoughts Friday, Volume CLX

  • Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha … breathe… ha ha ha ha …. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha … they think he can run the country when he’s barred from running a company… ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…
  • We didn’t care how much our NATO allies spent on defense when they aided us after 9/11.  Now Donald Trump says if Canada–which spends just 1.4% of its GDP on defense, below the 2% goal–gets attacked, the US will sit by and let it happen. That says more about Donald Trump than Canada.
  • I give it a week before Marge compares the jailed insurrectionists to Navalny.
  • To put it bluntly, a former President claiming NATO nations do not merit America’s support is nothing short of an absolute insult to the men and women of the Greatest Generation, many of whom gave their lives to secure the freedom of our European allies, and later generations who battled through the Cold War to expand them and defeat the Soviet Union.
  • So much of this national trauma would’ve been avoided if Jim Jordan had just been a better wrestling coach or Ted Cruz a better actor.
  • The big stories Fox “News” has pushed over the last four years–Burisma, election fraud, culture wars, weaponization of government–have each blown up in its face, costing the network dollars and–well, I was gonna say dignity, but it never had that.  
  • Republicans:  We must confront the threat of this new Russian aggression in space and its new military initiative because it’s the first step toward expanding Russian power.  Also Republicans:  Nah, let’s not do anything to stop Russian aggression in Ukraine.
    Republicans:  We’re being invaded at our southern border so we must impeach Mayorkas!  Also Republicans:  no comment, because we’re on vacation for the next two weeks.  
  • Trump absolute presidential immunity claim is going to fail, but the question remains:  how long will it take for SCOTUS to respond to the appeal?  It *should* be by the end of next week, with an affirmation of the lower court opinion and get it over with.
  • Jesus apparently has a bigger marketing budget than most resorts and automakers.
  • Lara Trump, an entertainment television producer who married into the family and ended up becoming the fundraising chair of a losing presidential campaign, will have to take time off her burgeoning musical career which is being subverted by the Main Stream Media and Big Music to run a political Party destined to destroy itself.  She’s definitely the woman for the job.
  • Can we pass a law now specifically excluding Trump from any and all Presidents Day celebrations?
  • Jon Stewart’s much-anticipated return to The Daily Show was shocking if you remember him as a reliable left-wing flamethrower.  While he’s squarely liberal, he’s also someone who speaks truth to power, and that can make him unpopular with liberals when Democrats are in office.  Stewart wasn’t always kind to Obama and Pelosi.  (And that’s not a bad thing.)
  • Lara Trump so wanted to be an autotuned pop star, believing she’d be the conservative Taylor Swift, raking in fame and adulation from the stages of Trump rallies around the country.  But even autotune can’t cover for a lack of talent and charisma.
  • A 12-year-old Canadian Lex Luther-in-training created a working model of the legendary Archimedes Heat Ray used by Ancient Greeks to sink enemy ships, and proved it worked.  His plan for the Spring Science Fair:  Death Star.
  • Nachos are the mood ring of foods, adapting to your tastes.  Whether you eat them plain, with salsa, crushed into a soup, or loaded with twelve toppings, they’re there for you, ready to deliver your choices.  And when they go stale, grind them, dry them in an oven, and use them to coat avocado slices or chicken strips as you would bread crumbs.  
  • In a week of “Come to Jesus” moments for conservatives, the fabled Burisma fraud has a stake driven through its heart.  It won’t linger in the media bubble, but I’m sure Abbe Lowell is prepping the defamation suits.
  • Let Trump’s cultists donate to pay his half-billion-dollar New York fine.  That’s fewer donations to his campaign.
  • I know I’m echoing something that women have said for generations, but can we get a federally regulated national standard for clothes sizes?  Buying a new pair of jeans had me trying on four different brands marked at the same size/fit description with four widely varying results.  There shouldn’t be that much variance using just two dimensions. 
  • A point that I think it’s important to reiterate:
