After filling out their form and relating what the problem is, they casually informed me that the contact was discontinued because no agents are available.

Now I'm going to go bang my head on the wall for a while. Sheesh.

The emerging excuse du jour . . .

"Go listen to that speech again! He never said to break into the capitol, he never said to attack anyone. You libs just like to make stuff up to make him look bad!"

I was on the verge of responding with a remark about Henry II and the death of Becket, then realized that the reference would be utterly lost on the trumper.

So this showed up in my inbox.

Seems a bit on the hinky side...
