    • The Mueller Indictment
      So, we have the latest indictments from Mueller.  Twelve GRU agents are named and indicted for hacking into a variety of servers, including the DNC, Clinton campaign, and voter registration. They also got the Clinton campaign’s voter model. The indictment is very detailed, down to hours and minutes. Donald Trump said, “Russia, if you are […]

Friday: Bushed.


The Medicaid Directors of all 50 states issued this statement in opposition to the Graham-Cassidy “healthcare” bill:

So, you know, there’s that…


This tweet is from John Fetterman, Mayor of Braddock, PA:

Ever been to Braddock? Fancy a trip there soon?

*wink, wink, nudge, nudge*


BiFF sent this headline today:

Price and DeVos Using Private Flights to Keep Out of the Swamp

More on this topic from Stephen Colbert:


BiFF also found this “correction” from the Glorious Democratic Peoples Republic President’s press office in NoKo:

The DPRK would like to apologize for calling the US president a “dotard”. The term was inappropriate and unintentional, resulting from poor performance of US-made Google translate softwares. A corrected statement is issued below:

I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US fucktard with fire!

It probably sounded cooler when “Rocket Man” said it in North Korean.


The autumnal equinox occurs today at 4:02pm. Summer was a little confused in Pittsburgh. We had a relatively cool August and we’re about to have a heatwave for the next several days where temperatures will be close to 90 or above. Yeah, that’s cold in Arizona but it’s hot here. Fortunately, the humidity will be low so my hair won’t look like I stuck a finger in a light socket.

Time to say farewell to summer for this year:

The summer smiles, the summer knows

And unashamed she sheds her clothes,

The summer smoothes the restless sky

And lovingly she warms the sand

On which you lie

The summer knows, the summer’s wise,

She sees the doubts within your eyes

And so she takes her summertime

Tells the moon to wait and the sun to linger

Twists the world round her summer finger

Lets you see the wonder of it all

And if you’ve learned your lesson well

There’s little more for her to tell

One last caress

It’s time to dress

For Fall.


There’s a Harvest Moon event at the Carnegie Museum tonight. Jazz and exhibition ballroom dancing is advertised. Thinking of going. This means I will have to dress in something other than jeans. It’s out of my comfort zone in public these days. I have a pair of dance shoes and a tango skirt with a beaded hem that I haven’t worn in 15 years. It will feel weird. Someone talk me into going. Believe it or not, public events freak me out.

  1. Come on, you are the E in ENFP, not I. I think you should go for no other reason than to see who you will see and meet. Wear your best perfume and leave a trail, 🙂

    • I have a sample of Tom Ford’s Noir de Noir. Which, I think, is the equivalent of Spinal Tapp’s Black album, Smell the Glove. Do you remember? It was a black cover over the original cover art that featured “a greased, naked woman on all fours with a dog collar around her neck and a leash, and a man’s arm extended out… holding on to the leash and pushing a black glove in her face to sniff it.”

      It doesn’t get much blacker.

      Fortunately, the perfume smells nothing like that. And it has a nice sillage. Lasts forever. And the sample is very generous.

      I hate going to these things alone. 😳

  2. Likewise, we had an unusually mild summer in the central Arkanshire, but now it feels like typical summer here–hot & humid, but little rain. Relief is expected about the middle of next week. :/

    Off topic: I find the best pix on Wonkette.

    • It must drive The Donald up a wall to know she still beat the stuffing out of him.

    • It took all of that AND MORE to defeat her.

      Lusztig did not mention the collaboration of the “librul” Corporate Media and the Social (Disease) Media with Cheetolini (and hence with Putin).

  3. This is way too cool!

    • Omg, I just subscribed. This is going to be good.

      • I could watch a rule of law based TV show with him. He has a TV face that would be wasted on a podcast if there were no video! And how about how beautiful Sally Yates is… with a beautiful mind to boot. I want these people to start talking and engaging more. School the country in civics, public integrity, and rule of law.

  4. Wasn’t there a study from one of the UK universities using FB data that Cambridge Analytica was somehow part of? I don’t have time to dig into it but take a look at this.

    • This kind of thing could have been dug up by the lazy media in 2016 during the election if they had unshackled themselves from the “EMAILS!”, no?
