STUCK IN THE WELL

How many dead bodies does it take for Republican Senators to crawl out from the well in Trump’s desk and do the right thing? Are five dead human beings, including one Capitol Police Officer and 138 injured police officers plus two police suicides in the week after the Trump induced Jan 6 riot, enough? Do

DO THE BEST YOU CAN

On January 13, 2021 the House of Representatives voted to Impeach Trump for the High Crime and Misdemeanor of Incitement to Insurrection for events leading up to, and on, January 6, 2021, at the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. Impeachment in the House is in the nature of an Indictment requiring a trial

REPUBLICAN WAR: VOTERS VERSUS DONORS

“In the Republican Party, we don’t count voters we count donors.” David Frum, former speechwriter for George W. Bush and close confidant of the late Sheldon Adelson uncorked that little truism not so long ago. Did Frum knock it out of the park or what? David didn’t go into details on what constitutes a “donor”

WINGING IT

I may be having Trump Withdrawal Symptoms. I need a vacation from writing stuff and trying to “make a point.” I’m going to wing it and talk about people who are fun to talk about. I like Bill Belichick and Pope Francis and Javad Zarif and Nancy Pelosi and Phil Mickelson and Aaron Rodgers and

FIVE COMING UP BIG

You never know who’s going to come up big at the moment of truth. Whoever heard of Lenny Skutnik, before January 13, 1982 when Air Florida Flight 90 plunged into the icy Potomac River and Skutnik took it upon himself to dive off the 14th street bridge into the river, and save the life of

CONVICT AND REMOVE

Ten Republicans voting to Impeach is better than it looks. When you serve a two year term, an election is always around the corner and your base is essential. Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming deserves credit for voting to Impeach. Her state went for Trump by over 40 points and she is No. 3

LOST FOR WORDS

When I’m lost for words, I try and consult the wisdom of the Ages: The Bible, Our Founding Fathers, Philosophers, Yogi Berra. Let’s do Yogi first. “Hey Yogi, what time is it?” Yogi: “You mean right now?” There, I feel better. At least for 30 seconds. I have to tell you a story. I’m in

NANCY PELOSI: PERSON OF THE YEAR

Nancy Pelosi is not wracked by doubt. She knows who she is…Italian, Catholic, Democrat…and exactly where she’s going…forward, to help her own and those less fortunate. That’s what God wants and what Democrats do. Simple. She caught a huge break in the DNA Lottery being born into the family of Annunciata and Thomas D’Alesandro Jr.┬áin

LICENSE TO KILL

With fifty days left under the protective umbrella of the TRUMP-ADELSON ADMINISTRATION, Israel executed Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, 62, an Iranian scientist who had committed the offense of knowing almost as much about nuclear energy as several dozen of Israel’s Nuclear Scientists. The house trained pets posing as American Liberal Cable TV hosts took it all in

JOE BIDEN: CARETAKER

Joe Biden, slightly befuddled, usually successful at remembering which woman is his wife and which is his sister, often capable of detaching his facemask from his left ear, is going to take care of us for a while. Our Joe. And, by the way, we should thank our lucky stars for that. Seriously. I mean
