No oral sex for Republicans

No oral sex for Republicans

On February 12, 1999, the vast majority of Republicans voted to convict Bill Clinton in his impeachment trial. His crime: lying about a blow job. On February 5, 2020, every Republican except one voted to acquit Donald Trump in his impeachment trial. His crime: selling out America and withholding aid to an ally for personal […]

The GOP suicide cult

The GOP suicide cult

Sometimes bad news can be good news. Soon Senate Republicans will reject impeachment witnesses and acquit Traitor Trump. When that happens, their white-supremacist and evangelical Christian cult will celebrate without realizing that the acquittal will backfire bigly. That’s because the rest of America will know that the GOP sold out their country to protect the […]

The only impeachment deal the Democrats should make

The only impeachment deal the Democrats should make

By standing by their cult leader, the Republicans have totally fucked themselves (and not in a good way). Over the past few weeks, pundits have speculated that the Democrats would try to make a deal with the Republicans, but the impeachment trial has changed that.

Trump’s impeachment: we all know how this will turn out

Trump’s impeachment: we all know how this will turn out

I feel like I should write something about the impeachment of Donald Trump, but we’ve all known how this is going to turn out for months: Impeachment will pass the House on party lines (give or take a few people) and go to the GOP-controlled Senate, where they will fail to convict on similar party […]

Trump and the unholy wall he is building around himself

Trump and the unholy wall he is building around himself

When I think about the Christian church I grew up in and compare it to American Christians of today (at least the conservative ones), it is like night and day. The change can be traced back to the 1980s and Jerry Falwell’s “Moral Majority.” From there, the unholy alliance between Republicans and conservative Christians took […]

Trump’s strategy on impeachment

Trump’s strategy on impeachment

As near as I can tell, this is the Trump Administration’s strategy in a nutshell: 1) Block testimony and refuse to cooperate in any way with the House impeachment inquiry, forcing the Democrats to impeach based solely on obstruction. 2) When the Senate hearings start, Trump lawyers will then say, “The House Democrats were politically […]
