It's the 18th of June and in just 2 days we'll be hitting Summer Solstice. After that we begin our slow slide into the doldrums of winter. I looked at the calendar and thought "Holy Crap! where has the time gone!" Of course, we're not legally into summer yet, so I probably shouldn't be complaining.
Criticism is mounting on the Republican governors of Arizona, Florida, and Texas as their infections rates soar. In fact, it's climbing in all of the Sunbelt states. No one should be surprised to find out this is the land of MAGA heads, those people with springs for necks. Oklahoma is one of those states. The Mayor of Tulsa says it's an honor to host the first Mega Spread of Covid 19. I wonder if people have started leaving yet. That's what they did up in New York, tried to move somewhere safe. Of course, these governors and mayors listened to the Idiot Jerk in the White House without understanding he is the Destructor of their political party.
And what about John Bolton's book? Personally, I'd have picked a better title. "The Room Where It Happened," comes across as a little too pretentious, I think. "Shit that Happened" is much more apropos. The reviews I'm seeing say this tome is rather droll reading, except for the juicy bits, the ones causing the Republican Party to do flaming back flips. Most of us have known for some time that the Idiot Jerk loves his dictators and gives them preferential treatment. He gives them favors, the way a suitor does to a romantic interest. For the Idiot Jerk, it's all 'tit for tat.' He doesn't mind scratching the back of a Kim Jung Dumb if Kimmy cools it on the nuclear holocaust threats. Remember, the Idiot Jerk said Kimmy was a good guy who had to make some difficult decisions when he was younger. Of course, Kimmy now realizes the Idiot Jerk was just full of shit, a used car dealer who offered him a Cadillac and then sold him a Corvair.
In case you're wondering, the only way I'll buy the book is if it comes out in Cliff Notes.
There are some Democrats who are upset that Bolton didn't testify during the impeachment process... true, these revelations would have been jaw dropping. Even so, the Republican held Senate was never going to convict the Idiot Jerk, a man of their own
ilk party. His book coming out 4.5 months out from the election is going to have far more repercussions. And there are more revelations on the way. My money says the Idiot Jerk is not saying ouchy! ouchy! Nope, I think he's far past that stage. In fact, I'm fairly certain he's past the boiling hot lava stage. I can't even imagine the hate he's going to spew this Saturday in Tulsa, and every word coming out of his mouth is going to stab him in the back.
