Anything goes


I never thought I'd link to Vogue but it's a historic day.  Where else would you go to find out about Bernie Sanders's mittens (made from repurposed materials) and parka (from the Vermont clothier Burton)?  Knitted for him by a teacher, if you please.  Bernie will always be Bernie and his hands were warm.

Eugene Goodman was promoted to Acting Deputy House Sergeant at Arms.

The crowd that saw Trump off at Andrews this morning was the biggest, most delirious crowd in the history of crowds, according to Sean Spicer.

Q Qracker Marjorie Taylor Greene celebrated by adding another conspiracy theory to her collection:  the seventeen people murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were part of a "false flag planned shooting."  She saw it on Fox News, of course.  She also believes Francis Bacon wrote the plays of Shakespeare, but she's on the fence about the Duke of Clarence being Jack the Ripper.  

Lots of retailers are struggling and dropping products that don't sell well because of the continuing pandemic and the economic morass it created.  Only Mike Lindell is bitching about being the object of a political vendetta.  No, say Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl's, it's because nobody is buying MyPillows.  Do consumers hate the product or the martial-law-promoting CEO?  This calls for investigation.  Senator Graham, get to work.

Half the fun of taking part in an insurrection is bragging about it to your family, right?  Not for Guy Reffitt of Wylie, Texas -- his kids turned him in!  And after he warned them that "traitors get shot."  Why must Biden tear families apart?  Where's the healing?

All the state capitols are locked down today in preparation for the mass protests.  Here's the one in Albany:

Hmm.  Not even raining.

Austin has limits.

All quiet in Tallahassee.

Trump's adult children didn't get pardons but something better:  Secret Service protection.  Agents still can't use the bathroom, though.  

Now eighteen and full of beans as ever, Greta Thunberg tweeted about Trump:  "He seems like a very happy old man looking forward to a bright and wonderful future.  So nice to see!"  The snark is strong in this one.

All over the country the Q Qontinuum stared in disbelief at their televisions as nothing happened.  Did Trump mislead them by standing in front of seventeen flags (Q being the seventeenth letter of the alphabet)?  Or did they misinterpret the prophecies like the Millerites and the followers of Sabbatai Sevi and countless others?  That must be it.  Q cannot fail, Q can only be failed.  Welcome to the perpetual disappointment of joining an apocalyptic cult.  I hope you're wearing comfy shoes, it's going to be a long wait.
