"And what's more . . ." Please come CAPTION Fox's Judge Jeanine Pirro!!!

Judge Jeanine ("Let them eat rat posion" ) Pirro is saying: "And I not only say LOCK HER UP, but erase her name from the all of the history books while she rots. . . What's so harsh about that?"

"Why would anyone believe the F.B.I. more than me?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I promise to tell the whole spoof and nothing but the spoof" ) Trump is thinking: "Damn! They're falling all around me. Indictments. Guilty pleas. Mueller interviewing the staff. . . . Manafort flipping. Or Flynn. Or you name it. . . . But I could change it all in a New York minute. . . . Fire that nosy creep. . . . Maybe Fox and Bannon and Sarah can spin it enough so that . . . Well, I'll figure this out. . . . I always have. . . . Too bad it's not Friday afternoon."

Never too early to lie or ever too late. . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald (cranium filled with decapitated angels) Trump is saying: "No, Peter, I understood your question and I'll give you a clear, straightforward answer: No. I am not planning on firing Robert Mueller. That is, I hope I won't have to. . . . If he had any honor, he should resign from this witch hunt. . . . He's ruining his reputation. . . . I would be doing him a favor. And I can't see why the nation should abide such a travesty a moment longer. . . . So, the answer is, Peter: No. I don't plan to. . . . That should answer your question."

"I learned deception at my father's knee." Please come CAPTION Jim Acosta and Sarah H. Sanders!!!

Jim Acosta just finished saying: "Just what is the evidence that Hillary Clinotn colluded with Russia on the uranium deal?"

Sarah Huckleberry Sanders is saying: "Now Jim, if the Clinton camp would give us the evidence, we'd have it and we'd certainly share it with you, don't you think?. . . . The President has always said he wants transparency. . . . The question is: do you? . . . We're not trying to hide anything much less deflect from Muller's sham inquiry. . . . Why would you even suggest such a thing? . . . Besides, you're giving comfort to our enemies. . . . And as I've always maintained: taking a knee during the anthem is like spitting on Lincoln's grave. . . . Next."

"I've got questions, and my questions have got questions!" Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson!!!

Tucker ("Why sweat the facts?" ) Carlson is saying: "And don't you find it strange that the same day I come out with my Vegas conspiracy theory authorities reveal that Hillary personally paid for the Steele Dossier? . . . I know what the Clinton camp will say. They'll say it's just a coincidence. . . . But what do you think, audience?"

"The Pro-Spin Zone" . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!

Bill O'Reilly is standing behind the graphic artist at her computer and saying: "Yeah, make the brows a little fuller and the lines in my forehead a bit more even and regular, . . . like I'm a straight-up moral guy with nothing to hide. . . . By the way, I'm not wearing any underwear."

"Who the hell does God think he is?" . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!

Bill ("I'm not wearing underwear" ) O'Reilly is saying: "Look, you want to know who dropped the ball here? . . . Well, it was in God's court, wasn't it? . . . And the thing that burns me up is that my children, who were entirely innocent, had to suffer. . . . So I think I have right to demand an explanation. . . . After all, who the hell does He think He is?"

A blast from the past! . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!!

Bill ("Move Over, P.T. Barnum, I've got one more act!" ) O'Reilly is saying: "Listen, the fact that the out-of-court settlement for sexual harassment was for 32 million dollars, doesn't mean a damned thing. . . . Zero. . . . Zilch. . . . Nada over nada in no time! . . . That's simply how much I value my good name. That's all it means. . . . Why's that so hard to believe?"
October 21, 2017

"Why won't she drop it?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("It's her fault!" ) Trump is tweeting: "Wacky congresswoman Wilson shows Dems for what they are: Cartoon Network. Repubs. win big in '18 with no loons. #WhatAreTheyThinking?"

About skip fox

I am retired, now a professor emeritus at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I taught in the English department for 37 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetry though many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. I am writing now, both fiction and poetry, more now than ever. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).
