Larry Wilmore has had some great ones on “Black on the Air:”Tangerine Idi Amin, Nectarine Noriega, Mango Mussolini, Orange Julius Caesar are just a few. He had listener submissions about a month ago, but I can’t get the link to embed, sorry. Anyway, just listen to the podcast, there will be new ones!

YES! Parks and 30 Rock are my safe spaces. I ALWAYS want to go to there. The next however-long-it-will-be (it is gonna feel like eternity) until we get a sane person in the White House is only going to be bearable with large doses of Liz and Leslie.

My entire adult life Hillary Clinton has been under attack by people on both sides of the aisle. I remember watching her being excoriated by the nincompoops on FauxNews when it was still a little baby hate network. b/c I was too young and respectful to tell my father to turn that shit off. I remember hearing Rush Read more

Franken’s book is great for a number of reasons, but particularly how he details the ways he did pay his dues and learned how to be a legislator. He spent his time on Air America learning from guests and doing research for his shows. Once elected, he took the advice to show up for every committee meeting, study Read more

Very cool, but my favorite part of this story is knowing that there is something called The Gymternet

For some reason, It is the one horror film I can’t even dip a toe into (and I ADORE Tim Curry in everything else, no matter how bad). I had avoided the trailer for this one until last week at a showing of Atomic Blonde - I had to shut my eyes, plug my ears, and hum The Star Spangled Banner until it was over. Just Read more

I have entered the Jeeves and Wooster hole on YouTube - My evening is now spoken for (until I feel compelled to pull MSNBC or Twitter up again)

The lyrics for all three songs are so clever and advance the story and Tituss Burgess is brilliant and he needs his Emmy YESTERDAY. Read more

I have watched that episode multiple times because it is so powerful and so TRUE in every sense. I cry every time.

That Scientology has special tax standing as a “religion” is galling, but the issue of churches and taxes is always infuriating, particularly given the wink-wink conservative posturing that goes on in the churches I am familiar with. (Yeah, Pastor Whitebread we know when you asked to “pray for a wise leader” you Read more

I would love some serious hope, but thus far all I see opportunists masquerading as “public servants.” One of the most disgusting things I saw in the past few days was one of the GOP apologists (I can’t remember which program he was on - they all blend together at this point) talking about the “leakers” (because of Read more

I can’t help but think that the whole corrupt bunch of GOP lick-spittles in Congress will manage to side-step all of this. They lie, they irreparably harm our country, but as long as they can get a FauxNews gig or a cushy lobbyist job at some point after retiring, the country can go crap in a bag. These “patriots” and Read more

Please, oh please, keep the world from imploding for just a while longer - if I have this to look forward to, the war/famine/pestilence that trumpy will inevitably bring down on our heads might seem a little less horrific (at least until the binge-watch is over).

And it is a showplace! Seriously - that room has all the warmth of a hospital bathroom right after the “big renovation”. I look at it and am pretty sure that is what the inside of her soul looks like.

My state has a unicameral legislature that has always been seen as a way to reduce partisan hackery at the state level in the interest of the common good. In the last 8-10 years that line has become a joke that only the Republicans pretend to take seriously/parrot when they pretend that our down-home law makers are Read more

I have no faith in the moral rectitude or intestinal fortitude of any GOP Congressperson - even the “Never Trumps” like Sasse have proven themselves devoid of backbone and integrity as they waffle over how deeply to kow-tow before trump. They are the ones who should be camped in front of the White House demanding Read more
