    Seriously, it was extremely pathetic.”45” really sounds ever more like small child distraught from neglect and abandonment. So let’s fully abandon him to real isolation,!wherebhe can’t harm himself out of desperation. *sigh*

    Cazale was amazingly good in a difficult and unsympathetic role. One reason he’s not remembered is that he died a few years after the Godfather movies, in 1978.

    I hear golf can be relaxing.

    Child evokes some sympathy. Spoiled brat is a better description.

    Stop mocking the president. He’s, like, totally, really smart. I mean, so smart that he’s like a genius, basically. Totally.

  5. robro says

    Pascal’s Pager — He’s not “like a genius.” He is a genius. And he’s not smart. He said so. In his own words he tweeted he “would qualify as not smart, but genius … and a very stable genius at that!” So there. How can we mock self-mockery?

    Sou over at the Hotwhopper blog had a good comment, “Donald Trump just portrayed himself as a “stable genius” (I don’t think he means the horse kind)…”

    You know, for a week or two over Christmas I actually managed to avoid thinking about that semi-sentient bezoar in a bad wig. Then, a few days ago, all the predictable responses to the book happened, and I thought “Oh, sod it, not this again. We’re still here. This has been going on forever”.

    There’s not even an ounce of morbid train-wreck-staring fascination in it anymore.

    Oh Jebus, the Godfather movies are terminally boring. I’ll always remember Cazale in The Deer Hunter.

    I think we should all chip in and buy him his own fire truck. Maybe if he’s busy working the siren and playing with the buttons, he’ll be too distracted to destroy the country… And maybe hire someone to follow him around, pat him on the head, and tell him how everyone admires his tremendous smartitude…

    That video is even more prescient when you look at the Michael character’s silence and contempt filled expression towards Fredo.

    Perfectly illustrates the entire planet’s contempt for 45.

    “Donald Trump just portrayed himself as a “stable genius”

    More like “equine gluteus.”

  12. Gregory Greenwood says

    If the White House were actually occupied by a ‘stable genius’ I wouldn’t be quite so worried about the President initiating thermonuclear Armageddon because someone bruised his fragile ego…
