Sometimes, We Have to Laugh
Is anyone else confusing American politics with a place where comedians go to get their start? I mean, really, sometimes I hear about or view flashes of what is going on in the U.S. government, and I’m not just shaking my head, I’m wondering if this is seriously happening. It’s so bad, the real comedians are having a field day. They’ll have enough fodder for years!
A U.S. senator challenged the guy from teamsters — in the middle of a public hearing — to step outside for a fist fight! A senator! From Texas! Who represents the USA! Oh. My. God!!! Bernie Sanders had to tell both men to stand down. Several times!
In the past few months, we’ve had Jim Jordan, who’s in charge of the judiciary committee, stating that they’re not concerned with the truth behind any accusations made before they make them public. He missed out on being Speaker of the House, losing to Mike Johnson whose recorded beliefs include comparing homosexuality to bestiality, same sex marriage would lead to people marrying their pets, and wants to make divorce extremely difficult for everyone in the country who seeks one. I can’t decide which is the worst for that position, since McCarthy was booted out by his own party and who reportedly sucker punched at least one of its members in the kidney.
Trump’s team is actively recruiting 54,000 “loyalists” who are interested in supporting him during his next presidency (God forbid, yet he’s leading in some new polls) who are described as “smart, experienced people, many of them with very unconventional and elastic views of presidential power and traditional rule of law,” who support the many brutal policies on Trump’s agenda. They’re being recruited based on political views, rather than experience or credentials (I suspect one of the prerequisites is owning an AK47 or 57 or whatever). Never mind the former President is being charged with nearly a hundred crimes and is just beginning with the multitude of trials he faces; does anyone else think this new recruitment is reminiscent of the mafia portrayed in The Godfather movies? Jeez, Louise!
