Quick Thoughts: the Flynn Scandal and Playing to the Rubes

We all know by now that National Security Advisor, complete caustic creep, and blackmailed-by-Putin-a-second-time, your favorite Lt. Gen. and mine, Mike Flynn has resigned. There is so much to unpack here — and by unpack, I do mean unpack my impacted rectum — that I think I can do it in a quick thought post.

dumbsterfireApparently, the Ol’ Pussy Grabber walked Kellyanne Conway to the door of the White House as she was leaving to do her MSNBC interview, grabbed her by the pussy, pulled her close, and whispered huskily into her ear that he had full confidence in the old Russian-compromised flinty bastard, Mike Flynn. And, then as he wandered across the White House in his dressing gown rubbing his bare butt on things — thanks Wonkette for permanently staining my imagination with that image — he remembered that President Bannon had wheezed his whiskey breathe all over him and reminded him that he should be more presidentially, so he figured that he would see the Spicy Sphincter before the presser and grab him by the pussy, pull him close, and tell him that he was evaluating the situation. People was amazed that two contradictory statements could come out the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s administration and both be true or that things could change so fast. Did these people just crawl out from the burning dumpster yesterday? Sheesh. Pick up on it people, this is the unproductive malignant narcissist that we’re talking about.

MoldySnack.jpgNow, the Ol’ Pussy Grabber and the slim stains in Congress are talking about how terrible it is that there are leaks about top secret stuff the Ol’ Pussy Grabber would rather no one know about. LEAKS! How could this be? It had better be investigated right quick and the outrage of phone calls the Russian embassy and Russian ambassador by ordinary American citizens who were merely violating the Logan Act were recorded! The American government RECORDED phone calls made by American citizens! There oughta be a law!  Someone alert Congress, oh yeah, that was said by the sop Rep. Nunes (R – Head-in-Ass).

I expect for the FBI to tell me what is going on, and they better have a good answer. The big problem I see here is that you have an American citizen who had his phone calls recorded… Where are all the privacy groups screaming now?

Or, the Ol’ Pussy Grabber grabbing himself by the tweeter and posting about the real problem being the leaks.

So, what could explain this blinding storm of shit flying in and around the White House this week? Well, it is called illusion of explanation, which  is the feeling that people have when they think they understand a complex situation with “greater precision, coherence, and depth” than they actually do.If you listened to the Repubicans talk about it, (a) there is nothing, NOTHING, wrong with wanting better relations with Russia, (b) the leaking from the IC has gotten out of hand, and (c) recording the communications of American citizens as they dance to the strings of their Soviet Russian puppet masters is an outrage.

rubeIf you listened to this super-sized helping of derp this week, you might, just walk away thinking, Hey, they’re right! What is the FBI counterintelligence unit doing recording all incoming phone calls to the Russian embassy? Why is the IC leaking super-sensitive top-secret information that our effective and competent president needs to be kept top secret in order to do his competent presidenting and what is wrong with cuddling the Russian bear once in a while? NOTHING! If you had that reaction, (a) you’re a rube, but (b) you’re an all too human rube because without the added ingredient of CRITICAL THINKING, it all sounds reasonable. And, it is all designed to keep us all talking about whether it is reasonable or not and not thinking too deeply about why the fuck Mike Flynn was kvetching with the Russian ambassador about Obama’s sanctions after the Russians colluded to steal our presidential election and how the fuck could Mike Flynn be doing this without the Ol’ Pussy Grabber or Bannon having OKAY’d it and why the fuck didn’t the Ol’ Pussy Grabber tell his Veep all about it as it was happening and why the fuck doesn’t Mike Pence resign in an effort to salvage what little dignity and slim chance as at a political career he has left?

My advice to everyone, though, is don’t be a fucking rube! Question everything that comes out of this here lying hornets nest of stupidity and masturbatory self-indulgence.

We’ve got like one chance left to avoid the catastrophe of truly becoming the United FUCKING States of FUCKING Stupid.

  1. Great post. We need to keep people on their toes and always questioning these fools who are now in charge. However, may I suggest that in the future when discussing the orange guy in a climate where anti- Semitism is at an all time high, you might want to use another word to describe a fool, hick etc. rather than “rube.” These days that word is often used as an anti-Semitic slur even though it’s definition is not meant that way. So, not to “kvetch” too much, I was loving your post until I came to that word and then stopped dead in my tracks. I just heard some jerk call an old Jewish man at the store that name in a derogatory manner. Sadly, Ignorance is also at an all time high and the fools who really are the rubes are those using that word as a Slur. I sure hope one by one the Trump regime is taken down and intellect and reason can once again rule. Keep writing and inspiring.

    1. Thank you for letting me know, Lesley. I truly had never heard that before. I will use another term, though, right now I don’t know which one. I was looking for one that suggested the victim of a con or someone who was gullible and easily fooled. Time to break out the thesaurus.

      Huzzah!

      1. Your usage was totally correct and upon reflection perhaps I am just too sensitive being that the climate of America is so bizarre now. In the past few weeks bomb threats up and down the east coast have targeted Jewish Pre schools and Temples, several in my area and that is scary as hell. Plus, I did, see comments on twitter about another post (not yours) where someone else used the same word and people were offended.
        But in reflection now, I think you should use the words you want. We live in a free society, or at least we are supposed to, and we should not let bigots win. We should not be intimidated be white supremacists. Comments on twitter about Trump’s nasty treatment of the Jewish reporter went wild after his press conference and I tweeted on how I was afraid for my Jewish grandchildren. Many people agreed and shared my tweet. However I had several people get racist with me. One person even tweeted “why should Trump give a damn about the Jews? They should all die.” And then he went on a rampage of anti-Semitic slurs. It was terrifying.
        So after reading all that stuff, I read your post. But now, after a few days, I think I cannot, and you should not, back down and let bigots win. Say and write whatever you want. Your usage was correct. I have to be be braver and stronger for I fear there is more bigotry to come and I can’t worry about the word rube from someone who I know is clearly not a racist or a bigot. So in conclusion, if you find another word that’s okay, but if not, then use rube. It wasn’t created to be anti-Semitic. I think I most over reacted out of shock and fear after seeing the alt right come out of the shadows and voice their opinions on twitter.

    1. I wish this rose to the level of dazzling bull shit. Christ on a cracker, this is the most pathetic lame excuse for a grifting huckster. And, the Congressional Repubics are worse. Much worse.
