Well, Howdy There, Amigo

There’s a Republican representative in the Texas House who is not the worst Republican in the state house.  Bryon Cook is probably still going to hell, but not as deeply as other Republicans.  Cook does support Dreamers getting in-state college tuition and getting driver’s license.

McNutt: Fruitcake Proud!

So this wild-eyed Tea Party racist guy ran against Cook two years ago in the primary and is running against him again in 2018. Thomas McNutt is the vice-president of Collin Street Bakery, a world famous fruitcake company.  I know, the jokes just write themselves.

McNutt is running on the basis that there’s just too many damn Mexicans in Texas.  This guy hates Mexicans worse than State Rep. Matt Rinaldi.  (Remind me to update you on that story in a minute.)

So in the middle of the last election, it becomes public that McNutt has hired undocumented workers at his Collin Street Bakery, because some of them came forward and talked about it to the press.

McNutt the Hypocrite lost.

So his bakery sues the workers for defamation.  The Quorum Report (subscription only) reports —

We have also learned that the suit was quietly dropped after McNutt’s company fully retreated from the argument that all its employees’ legal status were verified.

He just announced that he’s running again.  His big thing is No Sanctuary Cities.  Corsicana has a population of 24,000 people.  That ain’t even a town, much less a city.  Why do people in small towns have a voice in what the hell someone else does in a big city?  And why does a guy who hires undocumented workers think he has any damn right at all to talk trash about undocumented workers?

Y’all, I hate Republicans.  I do.

Okay, I’ll bring you up to date on Matt Rinaldi.  You know how he said he feared for his life and was under DPS protection?  Well, that’s not selling well in Texas. Thanks to Nick Anderson at the Houston Chronicle.

I’m not a big poll watcher.  Unless, of course, I agree with them and this one I do.

Politico says ….

Forty-three percent of voters want Congress to begin impeachment proceedings, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, up from 38 percent last week.

Let me say two words that might change their minds:  Mike Pence.  First, it is creepy the way he always smiles at Trump when Trump is talking crazy crap.

Second, he calls his wife “Mother.”  I do not know if he shouts out that word during sex.  Nor do I want to know.  If you try to tell me, I’m gonna put my fingers in my ears and sing Careless Whispers at the top of my lungs.

Third, he is not allowed to have dinner alone with a woman who is not his wife.  What kind of weirdo is this guy?  Tom Jones?


Fourth, theocracy ain’t a big jump from calling your wife Mother.

Fifth, he does not believe in evolution, Medicare Part D, public schools, or that smoking kills people.  He does, however, believe in tax cuts.  And Citizen’s United, which he said, “Freedom won today in the Supreme Court.”

Sixth, you put and Paul Ryan in the same room and democracy dies a brutal death while pounding on the door to get out.

Seventh, and you thought Trump was bad? Oh hell, he’s just the warm-up act for the antiChrist.

I’m not fond of Mike Pense.  However, to save your from spending all day reading this, I will skip to Eight hundred and twenty second.

Eight hundred and twenty second, while governor of Indiana, he tried to start a state government run daily newspaper distributed all over the state and competing with other newspapers, you know, like Pravda. He even picked an editor for it.

Mike Pence, not my favorite guy.

Stolen with pride from my friend Chris Kelly —

Covfefe, new fragrance from Ivanka, covers up stench of Russian collusion, smells like bewilderment. Gift that keeps on giving!

Just in Case You Missed It…

May 31, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Holy Crap, Trump

This from the NY Times – Trump’s coat of arms that is plastered all over his golf courses, hotels, and other sleazy properties that carry his name is actually stolen from the family that built Mar-a-Lago in Florida.  The symbol was granted by British authorities in 1939 to Joseph Edward Davies, the third husband of Marjorie Merriweather Post, who built the estate now owned by His Orangeness.  One minor change, though – in place of the banner that says “Integritas” (Latin for integrity), it now says “Trump”.  Now, that is the definition of irony, and marks Trump yet again as the King of Cheesy Fake Crap.

One bit of good news is that the stolen symbol is only used in the US.  Both Scotland and England denied his right to use it in their countries since they regard stealing other families’ heraldry as cheesy, too.


Enter The Writ Twits

Okay, this is oh so very cool.  Donald Trump’s own personal attorney, Michael Cohen, is now under Congressional investigation.

Cohen says he declined their invitation to come talk to them, sooooo …

After Cohen rejected the congressional requests for cooperation, the Senate Select Intelligence Committee voted unanimously on Thursday to grant its chairman, Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, and ranking Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, blanket authority to issue subpoenas as they deem necessary.

Oooooh, that was a unanimous vote.  That means Republicans also voted for it.

This couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.  Cohen is a jerk who loved to wave his law degree in the faces of reporters to intimidate them.

He was quoted in 2015 telling Daily Beast reporters, “I will take you for every penny you still don’t have. And I will come after your Daily Beast and everybody else that you possibly know … So I’m warning you, tread very f—ing lightly, because what I’m going to do to you is going to be f—ing disgusting.”

Honey, Honey, Cohen Honey, everything you do is pretty disgusting.

Cohen was mentioned in the unverified dossier prepared by a British intelligence agent during the 2016 election.  That was disgusting, and he wasn’t even in the peeing part.

Jared? Jared is a Spy?

Okay, so this deal with Jared and what conservatives are calling “a back channel” and I am calling “the Rat Phone”.

Why in goodness sake does Jared need a phone line straight to the Prelim from the Russian Embassy?  So he doesn’t care if the Russians hear what he says but he care a helluva lot if we hear?

And you know that fight that Jared and Steve Bannon had?  You know it was over who got to go talk in the Rat Phone.

Y’all, I think maybe Trump is a goner and Jared is the president.
