Blue Wave no.3: Pukin’ Blue, No Matter Who

By mike flugennockFriday - November 2nd, 2018Categories: Health Care, Middle East, Party Animals, elections, media

Welp… I’ve finally nailed it down. Between Ocasio-Cortez waffling on Palestine, Andrew Gillum flip-flopping on Medicare For All, all the ex-CIA types running as Democrats and all the doorknobs screaming “vote Blue, no matter who”, I think I’ve finally figured out what the Blue Wave is going to be: the Democratic Party choking to death on its own vomit.

It’s Da’ Bomb!

So, this is how it ends – not with a whimper, but with a bang.

All year, we’ve heard all manner of cocky smack talk out of the Democrats about a “Blue Wave” and how they’re going to sweep back into a majority on the Hill… but here we are less than two weeks out, and suddenly they’re getting all jittery and revising expectations downward, it seems. In the past couple of weeks or so, the cocky talk has been replaced by increased amounts of desperate scolding, hectoring, pleading, shaming, browbeating, practically screaming at us to vote.

Mind you, the Democrats haven’t given us anyone or anything to vote for since about 1972, and nowhere was this fact more glaring than in the past twenty-odd years since Bill’n'Hillary showed up and sucked all the oxygen out of the place.

So, here they are now, with no real record of progressive achievement in the past thirty years to point to, no real vision of a better future, pretty much nothing except to run against Russia and constantly scream at us to vote all friggin’ day and night.

TV Talking Head Quote/Meme Template Art

By mike flugennockSaturday - October 20th, 2018Categories: media

Fresh off the drawing board, a new quote/meme template for all those favorite TV news talkers’ hot shit takes on Twitter and elsewhere. Included here is a “serving suggestion” on the letter-size screen-resolution meme/quote template. The typeface here is Gotham family Book and Medium, but any clean, modern sans-serif face will work.

Aside from the quality of the journalism, another thing I hate about TV these days is the total lack of satisfaction you get from snatching your set off the table and pitching it through the window into the street. Those old CRT sets with the big-ass tube and the transformer in ‘em had some real mass, and required a major revolutionary commitment to pick that sucker up and heave it.
