The problem with drumpf

As I see it, the problem is that his madness is entertaining. I think we can all agree that he is a madman. He is, first and foremost, a showman. P.T. Barnum had nothing on him. His rallies are nothing more or less than entertainment for his followers. His rhetoric serves up red meat for the hungry masses. They cheer him like a rock star. It wouldn't be so bad if they were the only people entertained by his madness. Unfortunately, the MSM finds him entertaining, too. They repeat his mad statements ad infinitum knowing we can't look away. And the next day we find ourselves asking each other, "Did you hear the latest foolishness or horror came out of his mouth?" This is no way for a democratic republic, a government of the people, by the people and for the people to survive.

I watched so you didn't have to.

95 minutes I'll never get back. For the next debates the moderator must be given switches to shut off dumass' mike when it's time for Joe to speak.

They are getting desperate.

This morning I got a fundraising email from Mike Pants. I am a lifelong Democrat and an elected official of the Massachusetts Democratic party. If they think there's a chance that I would vote for the Tangelo Tinted Taint Tumor, let alone contribute to the fascist's campaign, well, they can wait until hell has frozen over.

In a first, Norman Rockwell Museum enlists illustrators to inspire voters

STOCKBRIDGE — Lady Liberty isn’t holding a mere torch to light the way. In a new illustration inspired by the iconic statue, her raised, clenched fist is actually aflame.

And instead of a serene, 1,000-yard stare, artist Yuko Shimizu’s Lady Liberty stares up defiantly, through a crown’s silver spikes and Medusa-like shock of hair.

“DEFEND DEMOCRACY,” wording above her proclaims. “VOTE!”

Shimizu’s work soon will join the permanent collection of the Norman Rockwell Museum. But, right now, in a first for the Stockbridge center, her illustration, and five others also commissioned by the museum, will be offered as free downloads to be shared on social media as part of a voter-registration campaign.

OMH, what a show!

I just finished watching David Bromberg's 75th Birthday party on livestream from Arden Gild in Wilmington, Del. It was the band's first time playing together since March, but they didn't play like that at all. I can't wait until his 80th.
