Drama Queens at a Mall

​[Trump] is spending extra time with his BFF, the monstrous admitted murderer Rodrigo Duterte. . . I’d guess the two blood-thirsty leaders want a sleep-over to exchange authoritarian despot tips.

I love you, Americans, but you are such drama queens. The blood-thirsty authoritarian despot in question can’t even stop an investigation into his own campaign. He’s also running behind his predecessors in terms of bombing out countries and starting wars. 

But who cares about these insignificant details when it’s all about a jaded consumer needing to feel like a heroic resistance fighter who bravely takes on a terrifying, blood-thirsty despot. 

Politics, for such people, is a huge mall where they go to buy experiences that will thrill and entertain them. If Hillary had won, we’d be hearing that she is a blood-thirsty despot right now. Not from this consumer, of course, but from some other one. It doesn’t matter because they are as interchangeable as their infantile fantasies of greatness.

    So you were really expecting less hysterical phrasing from Heather “Digby” Parton? She’s been famous for years for writing comically over-the-top far-left hate screeds on her Hullabaloo website.

    • It’s not like this is the only one. My news feed and FB are filled with this kind of thing.

      And 2, 3, 4, 5 years ago they were filled with identical texts about Obama.

      This is a national pastime.

    Here’s the most amusing news item of the day (clipped from USAToday.com):

    “WASHINGTON — Joe Biden would have been the Democratic nominee for president last year instead of Hillary Clinton if Donna Brazile followed her instincts.

    Brazile, the former interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, says in an upcoming memoir that she seriously considered using her powers as the head of the party to remove Clinton from atop the 2016 presidential ticket, according to The Washington Post.

    The DNC’s charter allows the party’s chair to oversee the process of filling a vacancy if a nominee becomes disabled.

    When Clinton fainted [on September 16] in New York City while suffering a bout of pneumonia, Brazile writes that she considered replacing her and her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, with Biden and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, reports The Post, which received an advanced copy of the book.

    Brazile says she thought a Biden-Booker ticket stood the best chance of winning over working-class voters and defeating Republican Donald Trump.”

    I can’t believe that Brazile really thinks that she personally had the power — three weeks before the election and after all the primaries were over — to boot Hillary and Kaine off the ballot and replace them with nominees of her choosing! The idea is so absurd I can’t help laughing out loud! 🙂 🙂
