Tinfoil Hatter

By mike flugennockMonday - June 12th, 2017Categories: Party Animals, elections

Anyone who’s been paying any attention at all to what’s going on in this country knows that we’ve got a veritable buffet of issues waiting to be dealt with — healthcare, civil liberties, the neo-fascist threat, bloated war spending, police brutality, you name it.

So, what’s the Democratic Party up to? Yep, that’s right — they’re still pitching a tantrum, looking for someone to blame for their abject impotence, their sucking on toast in the last election, with their teeth clamped around their Russian hacking conspiracy theory like a dog with an old shoe.

Still blaming the Greens, the Berniecrats, the Left and the Russians, it’s looking like the Democrats are right on track to get their asses crushed again in the midterms next year. They’re going to go down hard and I, for one, am loving it.

Yer Liberals, no. 3

By mike flugennockSaturday - April 29th, 2017Categories: 2016 Election, Party Animals, elections

For the better part of a year and a half, Liberals have been screeching about how Sanders wasn’t “a real Democrat”, saying he was “damaging” the Democrats and that he and his supporters should leave the party — and after a year and a half of bullying, public insults, blame-shifting, gaslighting and other abuse, most progressive Democrats and other Left constituencies are thinking that ditching the Democratic Party sounds like a helluvan idea.

Needless to say these days, Liberals aren’t getting the reaction they’re hoping for from the Left on that point and, of course, the Liberals are having kind of a hard time getting their heads around it. Seems that finally, Liberal Democrats and the Left have reached common ground – just not in the way Liberals wanted.

And by the way, I need to send a shout-out and huge-ass props to Nina Illingworth, one of my favorite Left bloggers, who busts balls with straight raw truth, written in the kind of no-bullshit, smash-mouth style I really dig. A tweet she posted a week or so ago pretty much handed me this gag on a plate. Don’t forget to check out her blog, and toss a few bucks in her tip jar if you can. Thanks again, Nina.

Another Herblock Homage

By mike flugennockMonday - April 10th, 2017Categories: DC Local, elections, liberty, right wingnuts, smoke-ins

…in which The Kid tries to “bend it like Herblock”.


At the instigation of my old BBF and comrade Adam Eidinger at DCMJ, here’s a Herblock homage depicting DC’s special friends, US Reps. Andy Harris and Jason Chaffetz on the news that 60% of Americans surveyed now support legal marijuana (Gallup, October 2016), on the occasion of the April 24th Capitol Smoke-In.
