Rudy, Rudy, Rudy

The Impeachment hearings keep reminding me of Rudy Guilani in drag with a dapper and younger Donald Trump. I was only looking to show the still of this encounter but I found the whole 45 second video headed with a term I had not heard before – “motorboarding.” I don’t think anyone should stick their nose in anyone’s bosom even a man’s. Apparently, that’s what the term means.

The editors of the News Tribune are preparing its readers for the endorsement of Trump enthusiast Pete Stauber that will be expected from them by their owners Forum Communications. He’s being described as the best friend Congressional Democrats can hope for from a Republican. Maybe Pete’s been motorboated by the President too.

The editorial cartoon that ran with the generous Stauber appraisal showed the Democrats about to blow up a voter casting a vote for Donald Trump. The message? Democrats are undermining our Democracy. Well, Republican redistricting and vote suppression and the Supreme Court’s unleashing of vast accumulations of untraceable corporate money into the veins of political campaigns in collusion with Russian Internet trolls might argue that our democracy is being threatened from a pincer movement by both parties. But that’s OK. Pete Stauber voted with Dems 13% of the time in Congress.
