Have another think

"My my my my my my my."  -- US Marshal Sam Gerard

Two months ago Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) sued Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) over his role in the January 6 coup attempt.  Swalwell has now hired a private investigator after Brooks eluded the US marshals trying to serve him with papers.  Brooks was brave with his mouth five months ago, urging the mob to start "taking down names and kicking ass," but he's been a scared rabbit ever since.  If he keeps making himself scarce, Swalwell should consider suing about a dozen other House nuisances, especially when a big vote is pending.

The French Open is turning out to be the Kentucky Derby of tennis scandals.  First Naomi Osaka withdrew rather than endure idiotic questions from the media.  Now Yana Sizikova has been arrested by French police in a match-fixing investigation.  Sizikova is ranked 101st in doubles and 765th in singles so nobody outside Russia is too worked up.  And speaking of the Derby, Medina Spirit failed a second drug test and his trainer Bob Baffert has been banned from Churchill Downs for two years.

Which by an amazing coincidence is the length of time Trump is banned from Facebook, according to their vice president of global affairs Nick Clegg.  I assume this is the same Nick Clegg who used to lead the British Lib Dems, and when Trump finds out about that he can rant about a "witch hunt" -- oh, no, he can't.  No FB, no Twitter, and now no blog.  Look for his unhinged ravings in the YouTube comments section until January 2023, when his ban will end just in time to fuck up the elections.

Roman Protasevich gave an "interview" to Belarus television so they would remove the handcuffs for a while and says he's sorry for being a bad boy and would like to go home.  What's the old joke?  The beatings will continue until morale improves?  Not funny.  

Mitch McConnell, Ron Johnson, Patty Murray, Kyrsten Sinema, Ted Cruz, and all the rest who voted against the coup committee or didn't show up, say hello to your little friend Vladimir Putin.  He agrees that the Trumpanzees should not be prosecuted for "political requests."  (He stopped short of citing the First Amendment.)  Think about that during the next cyberattack or airline hijack.

Ardent Trumpanzee Sean McHugh brought his bullhorn all the way from Auburn, California, on January 6 to accuse Capitol police of protecting "pedophiles" and "communists" and do other touristy things.  Turns out he was convicted in 2010 of raping a fourteen-year-old girl.  The prosecutor let him cop to a lesser charge to spare the victim more trauma.  I'll bet he's sorry.  (The prosecutor, Todd Kuhnen, not this piece of shit.) 

The Big Lie continues to spawn little lies.  In New Mexico Democrat Melanie Stansbury easily won  election to the House against minimal effort by the Republicans.  Their state chair Steve Pearce bawled, "Our democracy has been tarnished" because people can't trust the process and didn't bother to vote, waah rigged election waah.  Well, the Cyber Ninjas are still performing their voodoo dance in Phoenix -- why not hire them to scratch and sniff the New Mexico ballots?  Of course, Stansbury was running for the seat vacated by Deb Haaland so it's unlikely any Republican had a shot, but just keep playing the fool instead of figuring out why people don't like your increasingly fascist cult.  WWDJTD?

I was thinking...later this month Biden and Putin have their face-to-face.  We've got some kick-ass hackers in this country.  What if the day before Air Force One lands, raw sewage comes out of every faucet in Moscow?  All right, we can think of something else...
