Another entry in the American Madness Journal...

Yeah yeah, we all woke up in a world where some rich dude got elected to congress the day after body-slamming a reporter*. It sucks, and of course the media loves to trot out smug idiots in their Funyon-stained TRUMP THAT BITCH sweatshirts to talk about how All Them Reporters Haz it Comin', but you know what? Every single congressional district except ONE isn't in Montana, and they're all up for grabs in a year and a half.

So get busy resistin' or get busy dyin', says I.

And if you need a little pick-me-up, you can take a moment to delight in all the advertisers fleeing Sean Hannity's show like a Depeche Mode concert where they announce they're only doing shit from the last two albums. Sean announced a snap vacation, presumably to check to see that all his Horcruxes are still safe.

There was that little thing where a Florida GOP operative openly confessed to colluding with Russian hacker Guccifer 2.0 in leaking DCCC documents, and then Guccifer sent Roger Stone a link to the colluder's blog. Basically, we're now officially one small step from proving collusion between Russia and the Shart campaign and I haven't been this aroused since I was a kid watching the Madonna scenes in DICK TRACY.

Orange Julius Caesar continues to stumble around Europe like a spoiled toddler in suburban shopping mall. He's pushing foreign heads of state around so he can get to the front of the line because his mommy told him he was the Specialest Boy and Is Montenegro a Real Country Anyway, and telling everyone how Germany is Bad and Arnold Schwarzenegger got worse ratings on the Apprentice than he did.

After taking extra special care to avoid "lecturing" the autocratic mass murderers he was selling a fuckton of guns to, Grimace's Senile Orange Uncle decided that a 9/11 commemoration ceremony was the perfect place to lecture all those nations that rushed to our defense in the days after 9/11. There was much eye rolling and mocking from European heads of state, and Shiny New French President Emmanuel Macron even showed Dorito Mussolini how a real man plays the crushing handshake game, to the amusement of all. (Having vanquished Drumpf at his chosen domination ritual, Macron will now have first rights to Ivanka when Jared Kushner goes to jail, which you know really eats Donnie's ass.)

(Oh by the by, after the leader of the free world's assurance that Silly Ol' Human Rights don't fucking matter anymore, Bahrain immediately engaged in a bloody crackdown on dissenters, which is a coincidence just like John Cusack running into Kate Beckinsale over and over again, except with murder instead of shitty romcom tropes.)

Yup, Ol' Shartful went out and shit on our most loyal allies, which must be what Big Daddy Vlad made him do before he could collect this week's allowance. The fact that he keeps doing exactly what Russia wants while being accused of having shady ties to Russia is a puzzle, isn't it? Just a Gordian Fucking Knot.

Mike Pence, a couple days after endorsing and campaigning for a petulant rage monster, gave a graduation speech at the Naval Academy, citing "character" and "integrity," in an apparent attempt to goad his God into striking him down with a bolt of lightning. Having avoided his inevitable comeuppance for another day, Pence retired to a private cabin to furiously fap to pictures of firemen raping Dalmatians.

Oh, 'member that little story about Jaunty Jim Comey basing his decision to interfere in the election with a public scolding of our Hilldawg partially on that document that most of the folks in the FBI thought was fake? Well, TURNS OUT Jimmy Boy was like "Duh, I know it's fake, but it might get out and people might think it's real, so I'm gonna do what I'm gonna do," because Comey's reputation is THE MOST IMPORTANT FUCKING THING IN THE WORLD, BIGGER THAN A CURE FOR CANCER DELIVERED IN THE HOLY GRAIL, THE MACGUFFIN OF ALL MACGUFFINS, THE ONLY FUCKING THING THAT HAS EVER TRULY MATTERED.

Seriously. There should be scroll text before all the Mad Max movies that says "Yeah, we're all in this shit because this one dude was worried Gail Collins might write a nasty column about him. Anyway, time to kill folks for fuel and water!"

Former House Speaker John Boehner told the world that in his view, Tangerine Idi Amin has been "a complete disaster," proving that bipartisanship isn't totally dead. Boehner went on to call the President a "Disgrace to whatever weird, white-dudes-who-are-also-orange ethnicity we seem to share." In response, the White House issued a statement claiming that Trump is rubber, Boehner is glue, and whatever Boehner says bounces off of Trump and sticks to Boehner. (On this, the science is currently inconclusive.)

The Mighty Hilldawg gave a witheringly badass commencement speech at her alma mater, Wellesley, today. She laughed at Shartboy's tiny crowds and petty lies and alternative man hands and basically announced she's planning on sitting in the gallery during his impeachment hearing with 40 and a joint, laughing her popular-vote-winning ass off while he goes down in flames like a common Dick Nixon. She threw up her middle fingers, from which there issued a purifying light that flew through the air to the very White House itself, where it shattered Sean Spicer's pet rock and made Reince Priebus shit his pants in fear.

In the background, Sheriff Dave Clarke continues to field inquiries into his plagiarized master's thesis and fraudulent uniform flair with all the artfulness of a twice-baked potato. While it's certainly welcome news that the plagiarism might derail his appointment to DHS, you have to wonder why that thing where a mentally ill man died of dehydration in his jail because NOBODY GAVE HIM WATER FOR A FUCKING WEEK WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE PETTY SADISTS wasn't, y'know, a little more disqualifying. Anyway, Sheriff Dave gets SUPER PISSED when a reporter calls him to point out that he has a bunch of Cracker Jack prizes on his uniform so that people will think he's some kind of highly decorated supercop, instead of just a piece of shit who tortures people to death.

There was a little story today about how the White House is gonna look into vetting the Marmalade Shartcannon's tweets, because they might be getting everybody into political, and even legal, trouble. Golly, didja just figure that one out, Sun Tzu?

Dropping in on the President's Loyal Huntin' Dawg, Beauregard, JeffBeau continues to reshape the Justice Department into a weapon for the wealthy to wield against the serf class. Will he prosecute Citibank for a lil' ol' crime like laundering money for years an' years? Why, NAW. Will he have Justice side with a predatory lender that foreclosed on a serviceman's house while he was serving his third tour of duty in the Middle East? "Why, that deadbeat should be ashamed of himself, missin' payments while doin' such an incawnsequeeeential thing as takin' fire in a war zone."

It's really hard to imagine failing at Being a Human Being any worse than Jeff Sessions. Every time he looks into a mirror, the mirror farts and disintegrates.

The Senate Intelligence Committee ordered the Shart Campaign to turn over all their documents for investigation. All of 'em. Every email, phone call and piece of paper, which means some poor intern's gonna have to sift through a ten pound box of Steve Bannon's liquor store receipts until we find the note where these assclowns agreed to trade absolution of all their bankruptcy debts for an easing of sanctions, Guam, and probably Katy Perry singing at a few Oligarch birthday parties. And pity the poor staffer who has to sort through Mike Pence's horrendous, subhuman, porn history.

But then juuuuuuuust when you were thinking you'd get to enjoy your Friday night binging Veronica's Closet without the Sharknado of Scandal intruding into your brainspace, WaPo chimed in with dat notification that they push so well (unh) and it turns out that Jared Kushner had some secret meetings with the Russian ambassador to set up a little off-the-record, super secret n' secure, hidden from everybody else in America back channel line so that they could stay up all night talking about boys and clothes.

Oh, and this was in a meeting he failed to disclose on the forms he had to fill out to get his security clearance, which is crime. Now, I got banned for life from Hy-Vee for shoplifting baseball cards, so there damn well best be some consequences here.

Oh, did I mention that Jeff Sessions and Mike Flynn committed the exact same crime? And that the meetings they failed to disclose were also with...th' Russians? That three members of the Shart's inner circle committed such similar crimes is just Ace-Ventura-wacky, don'tcha think? Anyway, these assholes still have access to classified information, so SLEEP TIGHT.

Reuters followed up with the revelation that there were an additional THREE instances of contact with the Jarster and his Russian besties throughout the campaign and transition, and that the FBI is investigating whether this team of poor-man's-David-Mamet-grifters were willing to trade the relaxing of American sanctions on Russia for personal financing favors.

Shit is all kinds of real, folks.

'Member when it turned out Jar-Jar was pro-firing-Comey-to-head-off-the-Russia-investigation? Funny, that.

Anyway, I'm sure there's a perfectly good, ethical, legal, excusable reason for all this secrecy, all this lying, all this covering-up. I bet they were all just planning a kickass surprise party for a mutual friend, and the Washington Post just ruined the surprise so now everybody just has to go to the same dumb pizza joint they go to every year, and they don't even allow piss hookers, so THANKS A MILLION, JOURNALISM.

Dunno what to say, except...shit be cray.

*It's really hard not to make wrestling jokes here. Like, dude went "IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT I THINK OF THE CBO SCORE!" and Rock Bottoms the reporter through the Spanish announcer's table. Too specific?

3. Ok, I know how dems will win the presidency now.

If the candidate speaks to crowds and debates Trump and the Republican'ts with the same dark comedic, quick-witted retort as these posts, it would be epic.

You should be sending this type of write-up to the papers. Such sarcastic flare

14. Here I was...

Up way past my usual fitful sleep time nursing my recently resurgent astronomical of-biblical-proportions GERD (Which, I've concluded is what the "G" in MAGA really stands for... Still, not sure about the other letters, yet) desperately chugging a mixture slightly moistened baking soda punctuated with belches of raw hydrogen capable of filling the Hindenburg (and raising the Titanic) in a single go and I come across another of your clearly stated posts laying bare the total reality of the crazy ass situation we find ourselves thrust into and I think to myself... Here's someone who gets it.

Thanks TF for saying the things I'm unable to articulate with my acid scarred esophageal passageway and please keep them coming!
