You Know, I'm Starting to Think This Barr Fellow Wasn't Entirely Honest in his Little Memo. (Ferret)

Woooo, it's been a fuckin’ ride this week, huh? We've all been waiting for Bill Barr to finish up the whitewashing gig he was hired for, and personally, I was up all night redacting your mom. I almost didn't get a blog up today.

(As always, I invite you to my humble blog site, where you can find this very post, only with all kinds of nifty n’ helpful links: http://showercapblog.com/you-know-im-starting-to-think-this-barr-fellow-wasnt-entirely-honest-in-his-memo/)

Exciting news for Devin “Pigfucker” Nunes, as scientists have, for whatever godforsaken reason, figured out how to bring dead pig brains back to life. Reached for comment, the Ham Hammer quizzically asked “Brains? Why not start with the GOOD stuff?” before our field reporter fled, vomiting.

In the interest of protecting my readers’ health, I hereby post the following medical disclaimer:

If you have any recent history of respiratory problems, please refrain from reading the article from the New Yorker/The Trace on how the blood-crazed death merchants of the National Rifle Association now find themselves in dire financial straits, due to internal strife, graft, self-dealing, and other assorted acts of fuckery, as doing so would bring significant risk of laughing yourself to death.

Wow. Corruption in an organization led by Oliver North? Who could have foreseen this? Anyway, it's all descending into finger-pointing and lawsuits, and don't forget all these maniacs are armed, so a last-scene-of-Reservoir-Dogs scenario is hardly out of the question.

So, after Mitch McConnell successfully lobbied to get sanctions lifted on Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, who was sanctioned in the first place for his role in Russia's attack on the 2016 election, Oleg paid him back with case of shell wax, and also a multi-million dollar investment in an aluminum plant in Wrinkly Gamera's home state of Kentucky. I don't want to be controversial, but this thing where one of our two great political parties keeps putting American policy up for sale to our enemies? That's maybe not a great thing.

In his ongoing quest to get his own daughter to fuck him, the President of the United States offered her the post as head of the World Bank, but she turned it down. Moving on...

Billy Barr has been a busy boy! Earlier this week, the Fixer General announced a new policy to deny bail to asylum-seeking migrants, because god knows there's no better use for taxpayer money than incarcerating vulnerable people in an attempt to terrorize other vulnerable people out of making the journey to the U.S. in the first place. With Kirstjen Nielsen gone, Barr's making a really serious play for the coveted “Most Despicable Cabinet Member” title.

The Marmalade Shartcannon wrapped his tiny, inadequate, fingers around the veto pen for just the second time in his always-embarrassing Presidency. Thus, the United States will continue supporting the Saudi-led genocide in Yemen, and the Saudis will continue to support Jared Kushner's private business interests, with the odd dismembered journalist or illicit exchange of classified intelligence thrown in for flavor. I hope you'll support my kickstarter to round up every single self-righteous fuckstick who voted for Jill Stein because Hillary was “too hawkish,” and have them air-dropped into Yemen to watch children starve to death.

Still smarting from years of culture war setbacks, the right wing is really not handling Pete Buttigieg's ascendance in the Democratic primary field well. You could probably be forgiven for assuming the weirdo “protesters” with the Mayor-Pete-flogging-Jesus-while-Satan-laughs cosplay would claim the lunacy crown, but if you really want state-of-the-art bat-shittery, you always, ALWAYS want to go with Tucker Carlson.

Let's take a quick minute to laugh at some House Republicans. Freshman Congresscrook Ross Spano seems to have raised just one single dollar in grassroots donations during the entire first quarter. Funny as that is, he actually outraised his indicted colleague, New York's Chris Collins.

Hey look, Steve Mnuchin is hiring a Fux Nooz personality, who had to withdraw in shame from an earlier attempt to get appointed to an executive branch job in the wake of a plagiarism scandal, as his chief spokesmoron! If Tim Geithner had pulled anything like that, the right-wing jagoffosphere would have hounded him for weeks, but that was a bygone era when things still mattered.

President Used Enema Water has restored America's international standing as a power to be respected and feared so thoroughly that North Korea is already taunting him with new weapons tests. I wonder if Kim Jong-un had a challenge coin made. Oh, and just to add some deference sprinkles on top of the respect cupcake, he's demanding Secretary of State Mike Pompeo be removed from future negotiations.

Because there is nothing a Republican fears so much as American voters choosing their own leaders in free and fair elections, the Missouri GOP introduced legislation to undermine an anti-gerrymandering ballot initiative that passed with overwhelming support last November. Kinda reminds you of how the Florida GOP is attempting similar fuckery with the initiative that restored voting rights to felons. No punchline this paragraph, just a casual reminder that the Republican Party is anti-democracy, and they've seen a great deal of success in recent years in their efforts to roll back the right to vote. Does that bother you? Well, what're you doing to fight it?

I see Elijah Cummings has invited Undomesticated HateFerret Stephen Miller to testify before the House Oversight Committee about his Goebbels’-B-Sides-and-Rarities immigration policies. Oh fuck, I hope that shit is televised. Miller can barely contain his sneering disdain for humanity in interviews with fiercely impartial hosts; can you imagine how he'll respond to aggressive questioning from the opposition party? Taking bets now that at some point, he springs from his chair and tries to bite Elijah's ear off.

Facebook has conscripted the Daily Fucking Caller as part of their “fact-checking” team, which would be absolutely hilarious if I didn't have to live in the kind of world where malicious propagandists become arbiters of truth. I suppose we should be proud of the American right for taking up the reins of disinformation from their Russian comrades. You'll be wiping your own asses in no time, boys.

Anyway, that's all I got, folks. Slow news week. I guess to fill the space, I'll share the recipe for my famous hot-dogs-and-Funyuns casserole. The secret ingredient is the six pack of MGD I pour on top, and -

Oh, what? You wanna talk about the Mueller report? I dunno, I'm binging Season 4 of Frasier, and I'm pretty sure Niles and Daphne are juuuust about to get together, so I don't really want to...ugh. Fine.

The day started early. Far earlier than your Friendly Neighborhood Shower Cap was prepared to face his traditional hangover. I suppose if you're already committed to undermining the rule of law and fucking over your country, you might as well piss everybody off with an 8:30 a.m. press conference. Dick.

And so William Barr strode out before the press corps to etch his name in the history books as one of the all-time great treasonous goons. It's like Billy spent the last decade or so seething that nobody appreciates the deft shitbaggery of his Iran/Contra cover-up work, and now he demands recognition as a truly elite legal stooge for the brazenly corrupt.

The plan seems to have been for the AG to “get out ahead of” the heavily-redacted Mueller report with preemptive spin, the idea being that they could set the narrative. Yeah, it doesn't make sense to me either, but remember you're dealing with people who thought firing Jim Comey in the first place was a clever bit of political strategy that would be greeted with pony rides and ice cream sundaes from both sides of the aisle.

Barr says that because Tangerine Idi Amin really really REALLY wanted to obstruct justice, because he was so upset that his crimes were being investigated for a change instead of ignored, it doesn't count as obstruction of justice. He sneered through a few more lies, then slunk away, confident that the whole “Russia” thing was dealt with forever and ever, because who would read a dumb ol’ report when they have a nice, jazzy, memo instead?

And the rest of the day was just headline after headline after headline. I confess, I was shocked at how bad the redacted report is for Trump, I figured the cover-up artist would bury everything damning, but holy shit, just what we can see is incredible. Maybe Barr couldn't finish redacting because Scott Pruitt stole all the black markers on his way out the door?

There's more evidence that Trump obstructed justice than there's proof that 3 Musketeers bars contain nougat. Mueller outlines 10 different instances where Hairplug Himmler did his damndest to obstruct justice. Plus, unhappy with the amount of justice he was actually able to obstruct, which was significant, he tried like hell to obstruct even MORE justice, but occasionally his underlings refused to carry out his super-illegal orders. Basically, when Donald Trump sings “Don't Know Much” at karaoke, he visualizes himself singing it directly to the abstract concept of “obstructing justice.”

There's a fair amount of “Some of this shit, amazingly enough, doesn't turn out to be technically illegal, because nobody ever stopped to imagine someone as sociopathically treasonous as Donald J. Trump running for President, let alone getting elected.”

Like, Paul Manafort giving internal campaign polling to a Kremlin-connected oligarch, even as he's trying to leverage his position on the Shart campaign for personal profit...not illegal, apparently! The next Congress is gonna need to put together a massive I Guess We Need to Spell This Shit Out After All anti-corruption/treason bill. Call it the Decency Stimulus.

One of my favorite details is the bit where the Uncredible Huck confesses to lying to the American public. Will the Candycorn Skidmark fire, or even discipline her for this betrayal of the public trust? Will he even stop to think “Hey, having a known, confessed, liar as my chief mouthpiece is maybe counterproductive?” Will pigs spontaneously evolve wings, if only to escape Devin Nunes’ amorous advances?

Turdmaggot, Jr.'s victory lap is especially hilarious. The Bobadook concluded that while yes, his Trump Tower meeting was super illegal, a prosecutor would have trouble proving he understood that his actions were criminal in the face of a mountain of public evidence that he's barely intelligent enough to navigate a fork from his plate to his mouth without causing a life-threatening injury. Yeah, throw yourself a party, kid.

The report also tells us Senator Richard Burr was so dedicated to keeping the Senate Intel Committee's Russia investigation, which he leads, impartial, that he funneled information from his classified Gang of 8 briefings back to the White House, isn't that a nifty trick! In any just world, Burr would've resigned in shame by the time you read this, but since we're all kickin’ it old school in Hell, he won't face any consequences even as severe as being forced to oversee the investigation in a slightly less comfortable chair.

Oh, and the Mueller investigation made 14 referrals of additional potential crimez to other offices, only 2 of which are publicly known right now, so there are still plenty of unmarked presents beneath the Xmas Tree of Justice. And likely more than one treasonous shitsack, celebrating today because they're sure they got away with it all, still has a nasty surprise or two waiting in their future.

And there's more. So much more. From the uncharacteristic self-awareness of Weehands McNodick’s “I'm fucked” to the alarming degree of memory failure demonstrated by his written answers to Mueller's questions to the increasingly-prosecutable-looking Erik Prince to...fuck! It's exhausting. Even for me. There's so much shit to wade through here, I bet Chis Cillizza's pants exploded at the thought of the listicle he'd get to make.

Folks, this is the REDACTED version? What's behind Barr's hundreds of black bars? Kellyanne Conway saying she walked in on Donnie Facetiming with Putin about how to polonium-210 Jim Acosta, only Trump was too distracted by the porn he was watching in another window?

Tragically overlooked in the ceremonial Shrieking of the Pundits is the report's conclusion that the Russian government attacked our country, that the attack took the form of aiding the Trump campaign, and that the Trump campaign welcomed the help, and paid for it by adopting increasingly pro-Russia policies. And President Crotchvoid had not one word to say about any of this, but instead jetted down to his tacky-ass Florida resort, to golf at taxpayer expense, without the slightest passing thought to securing the nation from future attacks.

Anyway, the Democratic Congressional Subpoena Cannon, still smoking from a dozen different battles with the Shart House, is being loaded once more, with Jerry Nadler demanding the full report, even the bits Barr insists are too naughty for us. We are grown-ups and can make our own decisions, Bill!

I confess I'm still giggling that Team Treason ever imagined that this would be a good day for them, that Barr's silly little stunt would enable them to control the narrative, that their problems are firmly behind them now. It's going to be an awful lot of fun watching them slowly figure out just how wrong they are. If you'll excuse me, I have to make sure my beer fridge is adequately stocked for the show.

6. I WANT A WARNING

Listen VERY carefully. Worked in the livestock industry for decades! At one time was territorial sales manager for one of the industry's well known VACUUM manure spreaders and pumper trucks. (Yes that means I literally made a living selling a product that sucks SHIT) I worked on numerous livestock farms in school and as a kid including our own. I have spent more time ankle deep or deeper in manure than I care to remember. However I ALWAYS had my boots on and didn't mind. There was always time to put on the boots and other gear for disease control and sanitation.--------------UNTIL THIS MORNING-----------Saw Barr's press discharge------Between taking care of elderly ill mother saw coverage of report---------In short felt dirtier than when manure transfer hoses and couplings have exploded all over me. Seriously--this is our country---The next time Barr speaks----I WANT A FULL WARNING AND DISCLOSURE OF POTENTIAL HAZARDS OF HEALTH RISKS DUE TO PATHOGEN LADEN TOXIC FECAL MATTER!!!!-----Just give us enough time to change--------------------------------------------------------Sorry for the rant Mr Ferret please keep them coming ----- thanks
