Random Thoughts: Elizabeth Warren and Rogue One

A Senator can’t impugn the character of another Senator? So no rap battles?

I didn’t know you could right-click on a Chrome tab to mute it. This changes EVERYTHING!
What I need next is a way to search my tabs when I have a hundred tabs open.

New rule: You’re only allowed to get outraged by three things Trump does per day. It’s smart to wait until the end of the day to pick.

Senators can’t say bad things about each other because of the rule about insults and can’t say nice things because of the rule about lying.

I’m very torn on this Elizabeth Warren thing because I like it both when:
1) Politicians are insulted
2) Politicians are shut upped

Accusations against Sessions no chance of gaining attention. “Democrats accuse Republican of racism” is a setting on white noise machines.

“So did politics get any smarter today?”
sees rich, privileged partisan hack propped up as feminist hero
“No, continues the other way.”

Much of politics is elevating mediocrity to sainthood. But mediocrity is all you have to work with among elected officials.

For Valentines Day, we finally saw Rogue One. Because that’s the kind of romantic I am.

Rallying behind Elizabeth Warren is just as dumb as rallying behind Trump. The solution to Trump isn’t new stupidity.
Though lionizing rich, mediocre people as champions is kind of an old stupidity in politics.

Trump controls the people who hate him even more than his supporters.

Can’t believe Trump appointed an Attorney General who didn’t first serve as an Attorney Colonel.

Twitter needs a permanent “What Trump just said” at the top so you can understand what everyone is all riled up about.

When you put the government in charge of something, remember that every so often the government will be run by people you despise.

Lucky I got my wife a Tile for her car keys. She somehow got them in the bottom of the kitchen trash.

Elizabeth Warren is most obvious phony on the left since John Edwards, but let’s rally behind her lies about being Cherokee to defeat Trump!

The problem with all the focus on Trump he is not the core of what’s wrong with politics and government.
When Trump is gone, things will not get magically better. On current trajectory, it might get worse.

We’re in for a 4 year long competition between Trump’s biggest supporters and Trump’s biggest detractors for who can be the absolute worst.
The president will be competing as well.

Most of politics is explaining why your hate is justified unlike everyone else’s.

People are still singing and making music? I thought that fad was over.

Is it now the official policy of the Democratic Party that there is no difference between legal and illegal immigration?

What’s Twitter like when you mute all mentions of Trump? Peaceful like a meadow, or spooky like a ghost town?

“They’re firing people who have Russian ties!”
checks necktie
sees it was made in China
breathes sigh of relief

Finally saw Rogue One. It was Star War-riffic!
They can quote me on that on the front of the DVD release.

So I spent Valentine’s Day debating with my wife whether Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor had a romantic interest in each other. I thought they were just close in the end as Comrades in war.

  1. WE should treat our Presidents like Baseball players. Have them start out in the minor leagues, like being President of Costa RIca. If they do well there have them move up to a place like Italy and so on. Don’t let them run the USA until they’ve a have a proven trackrecord of success.

  2. “Much of politics is elevating mediocrity to sainthood. But mediocrity is all you have to work with among elected officials.”

    Translation: Vote “present” most of the time and you may become Pres-I-dent someday.
