Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Fat Head Rolls With The Polls

OK, CW13, you asked for it. I did not dislike your comment, because it is true. The vast majority of idiot talking heads in the mainstream media were absolutely sure that Hillary would win. (Not me, I'm cynical enough that I actually won money on that election, but that's another story.) And unlike a lot of lefties (and righties), I'm not afraid to agree with a true statement, no matter who says it, opponent or otherwise.

And now I'm posting that I agree with another true statement. Yes, Tchump definitely could win again. He could win again because this country is far more racist, misogynist, and idiotic than most people care to admit. He could win again because the American electorate has grown increasingly infantile in its understanding of politics. He could win again because modern American voters tend to be shortsighted, selfish, greedy, intellectually lazy, historically ignorant, and have proven far too often that they care more about money than justice, equality, liberty, or common sense. He could win again because the craven corporate Dumbocrat leadership apparently have learned nothing from the 2016 debacle. He could win again because the Ds are poised to run yet another stale old retread, yet another repeat loser, yet another shallow corporate shill against him.

And most of all, he could win again because his political party has developed a real proficiency for suppressing the votes of its opponents, aggressively taking away from people of color, young people, and poor people one of the most fundamental of American liberties, the right to vote.

The truth is that Tchump could win again because he is the perfect person to represent our failing, rotting empire at this point in its history. He is the quintessential 21st-Century Schizoid American.

I dare the voters to prove me wrong. In fact, I will be pleasantly surprised if my cynicism is proven wrong.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Trumpanus

The problem with these Claytoons is that most of them are just not very funny.

Like this one. I'd be the first to say that President Sphincter-puss is indeed a complete @$$hole, but wow, the Uranus joke? Really? Haven't heard that one since 7th grade. And there's a reason for that.

Re: “Emanuel 'Book' Richardson Sentenced to Three Months in the Slammer

Book was a fall guy, taking the hit for an entire culture of widespread cheating.

This whole circus is a travesty of law enforcement overreach. Many millions of dollars blown on an elaborate undercover operation to entrap college coaches and grandstand on high-profile prosecutions, and yet the defendants are getting probation, or a few months in prison at the most. Gimme a break.

Re: “Reward Offered for Information in Killing of Great Horned Owls

It doesn't say that there were no gunshot wounds. It says that cause of death is still being determined.

And it is almost certain that they did not fly into each other in mid-air and then land in perfectly symmetrical placement right next to each other on the ground. In fact, that's a ludicrous suggestion. The phenomenon of birds colliding in mid-air is practically unheard of, and in fact has been the subject of scientific study to determine how they are able to always avoid it, even while flying in crowded flocks.

They were either arranged that way for the purposes of taking the photo, or arranged that way by the person(s) who killed them.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Mueller Speaker

Nah, Congress' true job is to hand out money to corporations and rich people.

Just ask Nancy--at the moment, she's much too busy protecting billions of dollars of profits for behemoth pharmaceutical companies at the expense of sick people to worry about such a trifling thing as the U.S. Constitution.

Re: “Afternoon Cartoon: Grumpy Cat

Climate change denial = cyclical. Every time it gets cold, some people can't resist trying to pretend it's not happening, which merely serves to demonstrate their fundamental misunderstanding of the entire concept.

Re: “Afternoon Cartoon: Grumpy Cat

As the ongoing catastrophe of global climate disruption worsens, you'll soon be able to add Grumpy Human to that list....
