…and how would you like this done?

So… in Venezuela, Juan Guaido, a rightist “opposition” leader who’d never actually run in the recent Presidential election, just out of nowhere declares himself “Interim President” and swears himself in, and the US is apparently ready to support this doorknob in a coup attempt against Nicolas Maduro, a Bolivarist who actually ran for President, won the election, and was actually sworn in as the actual President this past week.

Just so we’re clear on that, folks, next time CNN or somebody drops another “bombshell” about the Russians “meddling” in our “elections”.

Speaking of which, why the hell didn’t Hillary think of this? Why didn’t she just swear herself in? Cripes, she wouldn’t quit screaming about how she won the goddamn popular vote; why couldn’t she rustle up Lawrence Lessig or Laurence Tribe or one of those other Harvard Law knobs to administer the oath and just swear her own insufferable ass in?

Emoluments, 25th Amendment, Russia, bah! Have Ruth Bader Ginsburg swear her in on a copy of In Takes A Village, get Macron, May, and a couple of other EU neoliberal Blue Meanies to recognize her, and badda-bing, El Presidente.

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 In the past couple of weeks or so, the cocky talk has been replaced by increased amounts of desperate scolding, hectoring, pleading, shaming, browbeating, practically screaming at us to vote.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.

…and, while inspired by the Post headline, here’s the song that was stuck in my head as I drew this; everybody has sappy old tunes they love in spite of themselves, and this is one of mine:

Christ The Redeemer (after Paul Landowski)

To nobody’s surprise, as part of its long-standing tradition, the Wall Street Journal has endorsed fascist Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil’s upcoming Presidential elections. This is a politician so horrible that even Marine Le Pen won’t touch him with somebody else’s ten-foot pole.

“Forgive them, Father – but get me the hell out of here!”
–Christ the Redeemer
