The GOP Response To The Latest Allegations of Wrongdoing By [insert latest goober here]…


We furrowed our brows!
We tsked! We harrumphed!
We firmly expressed our dismay!

We clutched at our pearls, and
We fainted on couches,
And mostly just called it a day.

We met with constituents
(Wait, that’s not true)
To explain that–no, really–we care!

We scheduled Town Halls
(Which, for reasons, we cancelled)
To show we had courage to spare!

We went on the news!
(Well, we showed up on Fox)
To debate all the why’s and the how’s

We’re doing our best!
What more do you want?
I mean, really–we furrowed our brows!

Seriously, does anyone expect more? I could have posted this a year ago, or (probably) a year from now, and it’s all the same.

I have more I could say, but it is grading season. So I’ll just say hi to my wonderful people, and say thank you for all these years, and especially this last one where I leaned on you an awful lot, even if you did not know it. With any luck, I’ll be back to something approaching regularity sometime soon. It has been a weird year.

    Oh how good it would be
    To have a President Pelosi
    The reich would explode,
    The Left could unload
    Delight beyond sight dream to see!

    /Hat tip the shades & memory of the Digital Cuttlefish. (Who is still alive far as I know & all I know is by checking his blog. No personal connection or communication with him. Reasonably sure its a him.)

    A weird year,
    A mad world
    Alternate surely
    Heaven knowed
    But which heaven
    Or which hell
    Created such and what a smell!?

    2018, 2016 how very long
    Yet so jam-packed of horrors strong
    Could we but and if we knew
    Time travel and set things less askew?

    Thankyou Digital Cuttlefish. You rock and have my absolute respect and awe. Merry New Year and happy solstice, enjoy the comet* in the sky and hope you are doing well and being happy. You deserve to be so.
