      One of my favourite sights is to see people complaining that marginalized people don’t understand that their support for Bad Politician-X results in fucking themselves. “Sure,” runs the line, “their lives suck now. But they’ll suck even worse if this guy gets into power.” This is often (but not always) true. It is also irrelevant. […]

Aw, darn!

Bob Dorough, the creator of Schoolhouse Rock died today at the age of 94. Anyone who was a kid in the 70’s learned a lot about grammar, history and government from Bob. His tunes were catchy and memorable. I rank him right up there with Vince Guraldi as a composer who has left an indelible stamp on American music.

Here’s my favorite Schoolhouse Rock tune. I love it because it came out right about the time I learned to sing harmonies. It was perfect.

Distressing

You’ve probably seen this clip already but take a good look at Melania’s face:

Say what you want about her taking Trump’s side on the birther thing, this is a woman who actually has to live with the consequences of being on Trump’s side. Imagine what it is like to live with him. Oh sure, he looked rich and powerful back in 2003. He promised all the Manohlo Blahnik’s she could eat. No doubt, he promised her power, superiority, a form of American aristocracy. Not true American aristocracy. That would be the Kennedys. But at least all the trappings would be there, sort of, behind a glitzy façade.

The reality of Donald Trump is worse. Much worse. I’m guessing she’s strapped into a pre-nup that makes Marla’s look lavish. Ivana had to return all the jewelry Donald gave her. What Melania would get is anybody’s guess but it’s probably a steep, very steep dive from what she has now.

She can’t stand him. That much is clear. She looks distressed. Maybe even depressed. Being Donald’s wife is not fun.
