      Trump is simply too weak to stand up to the Saudis — or Putin. Hell, he’s too much of a weakling to fire his own staff. What a blowhard. As you read this horrific story, be sure to remember Pompeo’s effusive participation in that brief meeting with the king, Nauert’s grinning face in the tourist […]

Chaos is not a ladder

It's just a mess that gets in the way of running things smoothly for the rest of us.

Trump Removes Anthony Scaramucci from White House Communications Role

I think I predicted this awhile ago. Damn, I wish I hadn't left the tags off my posts in the last year.

The Republicans, who run EVERYTHING right now can do one of two things: they can stop the crazy train or they can take the blame for it.

Maxine Waters makes "I'm reclaiming my time" go viral.

Why didn't we think of it sooner, girlfriend?

Stride: Did Nostradamus predict Trump? Can someone look that up as I head to the bus?


Stroll: Summer

It's very nice weather today. Ran out of perfume. Used some berries and vanilla oil I had stashed away. Smell like a cupcake.

The Atlantic reviews season 7, episode 3 of Game of Thones, The Queen's Justice. Last night, fire finally met ice. Spoiler alert: It was not love at first sight.

So, there goes that theory…

Did anyone else think Sansa was a little too eager for Bran to claim his birthright as the last legitimate Stark heir and displace Jon? Maybe that was just her formal training regarding houses and successions kicking in and, considering that she's ruling in her own right now with Jon gone, a little self-defeating. She's done all this work, learned all this political stuff, saved the North with a clever deus ex machina during The Battle of the Bastards, and now she's going to turn it all over to her spaced out little brother? How likely is that, oh Dave and Dave, who have taken over the story now that GRR Martin is a book behind the series. That's right, not bloody likely. She's been hanging around Cersei, Ramsay and Littlefinger for the past 6 years. The girl's got a little bad ass in her now.

And how conveeeeenient that only minutes after Littlefinger tells her to see every player and battle in her head at all times, Bran shows up literally on the doorstep with the ability to …
see every player and battle in his head at all times. You think the girl is going to ignore a gift like that? Not on your life.
