Okay, so it's early Sunday morning. I had set my alarm to sleep in late... until 0500 but the dogs and my biological clock woke me earlier. Later I will most likely take a bit of a nap. Right now I have one load of laundry in the washer, one in the dryer, and am preparing to fold another... ah, the joys of having a day off from work. I do have to work for 3 days after this, but then I have another 2 days off, and three weeks out I'm scheduled to work a 40 hour week. Shit.
I was talking to my friend Betsy last evening and we had to chortle about the Idiot Jerk in the White House and how he's claiming victory over Nancy. Guffaw. Guffaw. Then this morning I read that he huddled with other ultra-right conservatives including Gini Thomas. For those who don't know who Gini is, she's married to the Oreo on the Supreme Court. Now, ain't that enough to make you snicker? The only black member of the Supreme Court is married to a white, right-wing activist. Oh, and they have no children, which means they have a rather restricted view of family values.
Evidently Nancy Pelosi's approval rating is higher than that of the Idiot Jerk. I find that rather amusing.
With the shutdown over for only 15 days the mindset of the Republican Party is in extremely turbulent turmoil For the first time, many of those crazy conservatives are beginning to understand the Idiot Jerk is completely vulnerable. After being read the riot act by Republican Senators in a closed door session, it turns out even the Mini Jerk (Mike Pence) is doing the Bird Box Challenge in a field filled with cow patties... barefoot. Shit. I suspect he's not too good at playing Blind Man's Bluff. Can't you hear all those high pitched, Republican voices squealing "turn right Mikey, turn left Mikey, not, your other left Mikey." Oh, wait, that's right, he's a crazy Christian Conservative so he doesn't have a left foot, or a left hand as that would be too liberal.
For those interested in my current writing project, I'm up to chapter 20 in the first draft. Word wise I'm over 44,000. The ending is set in stone. This is the part where I really begin to tease with solutions when the questions begin to be answered... maybe. Surprise endings are great. Sadly, for the Republican party and the Idiot Jerk in the White House, that ending is also set in stone... and it doesn't look like there's going to be too much of a surprise.
