Welker Wins

Once more, we watched none of the presidential debate, but from the social media approbation we sense that its winner was moderator Kristen Welker. So if you are scoring at home the worst of the three debate moderator was the Old White Guy Legacy (the son of legendary 60 Minutes news man Mike Wallace) while the best was the Woman Of Color.


How It Started…

…How It’s Going

By the way, two things: 1) More than 50 million Americans, including your humble (Ha!) scribe, have already voted and it is only October 23rd. That total represents 36% of the total votes from the 2016 election. I wonder what that might mean. 2) We ran into an older man walking around the supermarket with his wife yesterday clad in a shirt that read “If You Don’t Like Trump, Then You Won’t Like Me… And I’m Okay With That.” And of course even though he was wearing cargo shorts, he was toting a sidearm. If Trump loses I’m wondering how many fellows like this man might become super-spreaders of gun fire in public places.

Oh, Danny Boy, The Pipes, The Pipes Are Calling

This play last night more than sums up the New York Giants’ season, but New York pro football for the past decade. And yet, it is so beautiful and meme-worthy. Yes, that is World Series announcer Joe Buck, who is hogging all the sports events for Fox. I mean, he is really, really good but Buck flew from Dallas to Philly to cover the game and will be back in the booth in Dallas/Arlington tonight for Game 3.

“Man Lying On Couch Covered In Thin Layer Of Cheeto Dust Refers To Favorite Sports Teams As We…”

This breaking story comes courtesy of the Babylon Bee and I don’t know if it’s trying to compete with The Onion, but it’s quite a funny story. Our good friend Smo, who was on the text chain where the story came to my attention (via our other good friend, Fink!), noted that “Cheeto Dust” is my favorite J Crew color.

Black Hands Matter (All Hands Matter)

Those are the hands of U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and are they black because an Oscar Wilde-type literary fantasy came true? Is God slowly turn Mitch into a black man? Another curse brought down by RBG? Or is he C. Thomas Howell’ing it in order to get into Harvard?

Who knows? The most plausible-sounding guesses we’ve heard on the Twitter relate to blood thinners or other circulatory issues. Is that simply heavy bruising? Mitch also has a slight discoloration of similar pigment just above his lip?

  1. How many times has DISASTER/CATASTROPHE befallen this country when a REPUBLICAN has occupied the White House? Let’s just count the last 50 years!

    1972-74 : Nixon – Watergate/impeachment & ouster of a US President & overall “crisis in the government & in faith in said government”.

    2001 AND 2008 : Bush ‘Jr’ – a TWOFER! Starts out with 9/11 & ends with Economic Armageddon, the latter caused by changes in rules & policies shoved into place by…that’s right, REPUBLICANS in Congress.

    2016-2020 : Trump – USA loses status, respect & trust of ALL our former world allies, the country divided & increasingly torn apart by social & racial unrest while HATRED & violence grows at a cancerous rate, 223,000 & counting DEAD AMERICANS from a pandemic, tens of millions unemployed, & the economy shakily held together by Amazon & Zoom, all due to the utter FAILURE (some say intentional….) of this now co-opted & corrupted “Federal government” ‘following instructions & lack of leadership by a sociopath, & lest we forget, the centuries-old US POST OFFICE destroyed from WITHIN!

    The United States of America can not afford another Republican in the White House. EVER.

  2. So, jdubs – pretend you’re the head writer of SNL; what will viewers hear about McConnell’s black hands? And what are the ones that wouldn’t get past the censor? 😉
