We did have a lot of rain last evening... and thunder... and lightening, but very little wind. During the height of the storm I came upstairs to find both dogs sleeping on the bed. Some dogs hate storms, mine sleep through them. Unless they're banging away right over head, I'm pretty much the same way.
Yesterday afternoon I rode 14.5 miles down the Milan to San Remo route. The entire route is over 58 miles. I'd like to complete the entire ride... someday.
In case you didn't see, Billy Barr tried to throw himself on his sword yesterday and take responsibility of the gassing of the peaceful protesters. This had more to do, I suspect, with 90 year old Cracker Jack Christian Pat Robertson releasing a statement that 'the walk and and Idiot Jerk's use of the Bible' was not Christian. That Evangelical base? They're fracturing, splitting apart, cracks and fissures are appearing all over the place. Son of a bitch!
Senator Lisa Murkowski threw a cup of cold water on the Idiot Jerk. She agrees with Mattis and might not vote for the Idiot Jerk this fall. He spit out his usual response. What she needs to right now is tell him to stick it up his ass. The more people who tell him that, the more likely we are to see his tiny little, orange head explode before the November election.
And, if that wasn't bad enough news for the Idiot Jerk, it's gets worser! Senator Chuck Grassley (R) from Iowa has put on hold the nominations of all those Conservatives the Idiot Jerk wants installed. That's right. He wants investigations into the firings of those 2 Inspector Generals. You know? The ones who are there to keep tabs on the Idiot Jerk, the ones who are supposed to keep his dirty, little schemes of corruption from reaching fruition. Oh... dear me. I think this is much more a demonstration of Chuck's self-preservation skills than anything else. He knows... they're going to lose the White House in November... and probably the Senate. And then there are going to be investigations.
When I was talking to Lily about this she gave me one of her 'oh shit' looks.
And finally, because there is so much Chaos swirling around the Idiot Jerk, Silly Lindsey Graham has put on hold some sort of wack job legislation meant to further Obamagate... which is really nothing more than a brain fart by the Idiot Jerk in an attempt to turn attention away from his total incompetence.
