Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To


  • This guy?
  • This guy right here?
  • This fucking guy right here?
  • Have you read Senator Franken’s new book Al Franken, Giant of the Senate? (You should; I just did. Here’s my review: if you’re going to buy it, then do so via that link, as I get a percentage. That was my review of Al Franken, Giant of the Senate.)
  • Did Mickey come directly from the cruise?
  • What’s in Bobby’s pocket? (Vape pen, backup vape pen, $1200 in cash, vegan rabbit’s foot keychain, bottle of Fret-Eeze.)
  • Would you like to see a larger version of the painting of John C. Calhoun behind them?
  • He looks mean as shit, doesn’t he?
  • I wonder if he treated his slaves well?
  • How many Senators would own slaves now if they could? (Definitely not Al Franken, I think we can assume that. Not that it would be a straight ticket, either: mostly, it would be Republicans, but I think Pelosi would buy her household staff if she could. Just to make taxes easier.)

    I’m tellin’ ya – that’s what Bob would look like if he was clean shaved.

    Somewhere in a secure storage facility in the bowels of the Smithsonian is a portrait of Sen. John Calhoun wearing cut-off Daisy Duke-style jean shorts.

    Am I crazy, or is this not a job for Nicholas Cage?*


    *Note: This is not necessarily an either/or question.

    I’m not going to get into an argument, but I think you’re wrong about Ms. Pelosi, and she sure-as-$#!t is not a Senator. Falsus in Uno, Falsus in Omnibus?

      Boxer, Pelosi, whichever.

        I think you’re thinking of DiFi – Boxer has been replaced by Harris – but you made a point that was thoughtful and funny, so I’m just exposing my political nerd side.
