Swamplandia

Al Franken had no choice but to resign, but damn, that one hurt. Meanwhile we have a sexual abuser in the White House and unrepentant swamp candidates like Roy Moore, who in addition to molesting underage girls, actually said that the last time America was truly great was during slavery. Sure we had slavery, he said, but our families were strong and our country had a direction. We all knew this is what "Make America Great Again" truly meant, but Roy Moore had the gall to say it. And the Republican Party has endorsed him for the senate. I guess they're just like fuck it, we'll be the party of racists and pedophiles. Come on out of the woodwork y'all. Let's not even pretend. Alabama, please. Don't wallow in the swamp with these men who don't care about you. Don't let this bigoted child molester win. Then again, Roy Moore said the other day that he has a kinship with Putin, which made me wonder what connection the cowboy costume wearing swamp dweller might have with the Russian strongman. It could be that Putin has already deployed his hackers to program Alabama's election machines. Maybe the vote is moot.

  1. The GOP does not care...Its sole objective is to undo all parts of the liberal agenda and create an oligarchy...

  3. I think you may have figured it out and it's scary and shitty and so, so horrendous.

  4. I didn't know that Moore said that about Putin, but it makes sense. I think there might be a dark underground cavern where all of these despots gather to drink a toast of blood and bow to Hitler - or maybe the devil. Well, that's a little morbid.
    But we must get ready to vote - it may actually do some good. And what else do we have?

  5. You and I think so much alike, I swear I could have written this exact post... word for word. Thank you for writing it down, my friend.

  6. Dems may have fallen right into the trap that Roger Stone set when he orchestrated this. (Not saying that Franken did nothing, btw). There is now in-fighting and Dems have lost a powerful and rational voice in Franken. IMO, what he should have said was "I will resign when everyone else who has been accused resigns".
