Dan Embree: How you do suffer! So much that you were shaken by just remembering the letters you had just written or were planning to write and then had sent out already or would soon send out or maybe it was calls and not letters, but anyway it all made you “feel badly”.
WJ Astore: It’s infuriating how men like Bannon attempt to squelch criticism of the president by hiding behind the troops.
Dan Embree: A red flag was your promise to spend the money, because we all know that, except for Defense, golf, and charter-flights for the cabinet, you’re a fiscal conservative.
Dan Embree: Conway couldn’t pull herself out of campaign-rally mode, couldn’t see the Weinstein scandal as anything but another vehicle for attacking the Clintons.
Dan Embree: We are waiting to find out whether you are a victim like Dunaway or a villain like Huston. Of course, as a true Trumpista, I’m betting on the former.
Jaime O’Neill: As Trump’s irrationality grows more apparent, we bear witness to it, are alarmed by it, feel helpless in the face of it.
Dan Embree: Even Padre Pedro over at Nuestra Señora de Pequeños Inconvenientes says “Happy Hanukkah” to his poker buddy, Rebbi “Straight Flush” Green, and Reb always comes to the Christmas Fair.
Tom Hall: Just as the corporate media Failed to cover the Republican tax plan, and the profit-rape of Puerto Rico, it is now also failing to cover the real story behind the Las Vegas massacre.
John Peeler: If the concentration of wealth and income continues as it is, or gets even worse, I see no way we can preserve our democracy, for democracy is premised on the equality of every citizen.
Dan Embree: Pence wants your job and is pretty sure that God intends for him to have it. He’ll pretend to drag his feet, of course, but in the end (say, after 15 minutes) he’ll let God have His way.
Dan Embree: “No matter how poor and ugly you are, you can draw comfort from the knowledge that if you were as rich as me, people would think you beautiful.”
Dan Embree: Dawn Patrol orderly missed shift again. Went to rouse T. Already escaped. Cell-phone drawer in the Oval pried open. Secret Service phone-location sensor tracked him to broom closet on third floor. Found him typing in his underwear.
Dan Embree: Your base is fine with straight-out lies, for sure, but that weaselly stuff about not descending to petty nonsense reminds them of Clinton’s “I did not have sex* with that woman*”.
