The compliant Supreme (Right) Court

Marty’s photo of the day #2677: Readers of my novel Time Is Irreverent take note: President Handley now has his “compliant Supreme Court.”

Stop the vote!

Stop the vote!

Marty’s photo of the day #2676: Yes, sometimes Martyman has too much to drink and passes out in the gutter. But he never attempts to rape anyone, never sticks his dick in anyone’s face (other than that unfortunate incident with a Tasmanian devil he refuses to discuss), never starts bar fights, never rages in paranoia […]

Republicans are the definition of hypocrisy

Republicans are the definition of hypocrisy

Definition of hypocrisy: Republicans refusing to hold confirmation hearings for Supreme Court justice nominee Merrick Garland and ultimately keeping the court seat vacant for 422 days; then having a whiny temper tantrum about a short delay in the appointment of sexual predator, mean drunk, multiple perjurer, cultist nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, while one of his victims […]

Hey Republicans: Look at what you won! (Part 6 of 7)

Marty’s photos of the day #2016-2017: Hey Republicans! Look at what you won! Your man Donald Trump has already promised to pull us out of the Paris Agreement, and the Keystone XL pipeline will soon be moving the dirtiest oil on the planet. Also on Trump’s list will be opening up the Arctic National Wildlife […]

Hey Republicans: Look at what you won! (Part 1 of 7)

Hey Republicans! Look at what you won! Your man Donald Trump has already promised to pull us out of the Paris Agreement, and the Keystone XL pipeline will soon be moving the dirtiest oil on the planet. Also on Trump’s list will be opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling. Now I […]

What Trump and a biker bill collectors have in common

What Trump and a biker bill collectors have in common

Donald Trump’s verbal wet fart yesterday gave me flashbacks to my early twenties, when I was a partner in a Minneapolis-based talent management agency. A nightclub owner had stiffed one of our bands, and we hired some scary-looking bikers to attempt to collect the money. Before the collection effort, we had a meeting with our […]

Republicans: Don’t talk to me about patriotism!

Republicans: Don’t talk to me about patriotism!

The other day, in an on-line conversation with a Donald Trump fan, a woman denied that her candidate’s bigotry was an issue and instead claimed that voting Trump was the patriotic thing to do. With that in mind, here’s my 4th of July Weekend patriotic rant: The word “patriotism” has been co-opted and distorted by […]

This election is bigger than Hillary or Bernie

This election is bigger than Hillary or Bernie

The vast majority of my Facebook friends are liberal, and if I were to poll them all, they’d probably split evenly between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders supporters. I’m officially undecided. In fact, when the time comes for me to vote in the Montana primary, I will seriously consider grabbing the Republican ballot and voting […]

This is going to bite the GOP in the ass!

This is going to bite the GOP in the ass!

Although I personally would have preferred that President Obama nominate a liberal to the Supreme Court, the best nominee for America is one who is neutral (as opposed to someone like Clarence Thomas, who pre-decides cases based on rigid ideology). By almost any standard, Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland fits the definition of “neutral.” Still, […]

A year without a Supreme Court?

A year without a Supreme Court?

I find it appalling that Republican leaders have yet again put party before country—this time by threatening to refuse to confirm an Obama-appointed Supreme Court Justice to replace Antonin Scalia. These un-American plebeians would like to shut down an entire branch of government for at least a year—all so they have a chance at appointing […]
