Ooh, a bigfoot photo-finish!
The size of Twitler’s hand on The Orb!
Put this happy pet thread below:
With our new AG going full tilt boogie conspiracist at the hearings today is the strategy of Looking for Mr. Good Barr officially dead?
@Mary G: Thank you for that.

@Mary G: What a nice story.
Triumph of the Dumb
Few things dumber than Trump at Mt Vernon
Trump is not as dumb as his base. He is much, much dumber.
LOL! When you have a chance, would you please email me?

@Brachiator: That stupid Washington. No wonder no one remembers him.
If not, it should be. At this point the odds of him doing the right or professional thing and not acting like a B-list fixer in a bad mob movie are slim to none.
You win all the internets!
@Mary G: Eyes got all dusty. Must’ve been Larry’s pink collar.
That is one exceedingly cute puppy.
If Washington’s name was on it, the Republicans would have just changed it to Reagan like they did with the airport.
I’m amazed Trump didn’t express jealousy at the number of slaves at Mt. Vernon.
@Baud: Who remembers Washington anyways. What did he do except chop down a cherry tree.
To this day, the sight of his stupid statue enrages me every time I drive into the place.
Washington was great enough that other people wanted to plaster his name on stuff to get some reflected glory. Trump is awful enough that they’ll chisel his name off stuff the moment his back is turned.
I bet he could have been maneuvered to say so.
OR, you can be a great leader and folk will name cities and even a state after you.
@Baud: I still call it as Washington National. The Reagan Freeway here in town is normally referred to as The 118.
ETA: Obama only got a segment(from the 210 to the 2) of the 134 named after him, but in fairness, it’s one of the nicest sections of freeway in the area.

@?BillinGlendaleCA: I wonder if Trump realizes the Nation’s capital is named after Washington.
well if we’re going to go full Reinfenstahl, perhaps we should re-title it Triump of the Shrill”
@Enhanced Voting Techniques:
The answer is always no.
@Enhanced Voting Techniques:
If Trump wins a second term + both houses controlled by ReThugs, they might well rename Washington “Trump City”, in part to piss off liberals.
I wish someone would ask Trump really, really basic questions like, “President Trump, can you tell us briefly, what Mr. Washington did?”
And watch him barf up a word salad, because he has no fucking clue about anything.
Not to mention streets (all manner of thoroughfares); elementary, middle, and high schools; colleges and universities; monuments, statues, and memorials; and the FUCKING NATIONAL CAPITAL.
Other than that, though….
NOT showing that tweet to the daughter unit, she will want to get one tomorrow.
Really, the possibilities are endless!
Trump Motel 6
Trump Sewage Draining
Trump Nude Show Club
I could go on for hours….well, maybe not. I will say it’s only a matter of time until somebody names or renames their establishment the Trump Gun Store/Range, provided of course they can pony up the licensing fee. As all know or should know, Donald is not a charity organization – if you want to use his name, he gets a piece of the action one way or another.
Just saw a pizza commercial, realized I have not had a pizza in a good three or four years. Am suddenly jonesing hard for peperoni and onions and mushrooms and anchovies.
Believe Trump complained about the quality of construction at Mt. Vernon. He didn’t like the steep staircases, narrow halls, etc.
I think, if he was asked, he’d just trash Washington’s home and say how much better his buildings are.
@SiubhanDuinne: I’m an alum of the University of Washington.
Trump Shooting Range, Gas Station, and Cultural Center

@piratedan: If it’s about Trump it could be “Triumph of the Swill”.
You just proved my (everyone’s) point.
@SiubhanDuinne: Gosh, if only there were a way in 21st century America for you to solve that problem in 30 minutes or less. Can you imagine such a thing?
@Kathleen: Or “Triumph of the Shill”.
Will there be a color code or ‘Barr don’t feel like it’? Or, ‘need at least one GOP Congressperson elected in 2020?’ Or ‘Save Nunes’ ass’?

Anchovies?!?!?! No wonder you haven’t eaten a pizza in years. I’d never eat it again! LOL! No, seriously.
Interesting tweet from Greg Sargent:
@RepAdamSchiff on Barr today:
“His testimony raises profound concern that the AG is doing what we urge emerging democracies not to do: seek to prosecute your political opponents after you win an election.”
Remember this quote from Rep Schiff, come 2021.
No no no no no, I adore anchovies!
Don’t overlook the closed-eyed look of rapture!
Never got into the whole thing of home delivery. Very
retroLuddite of me, I know….
@SiubhanDuinne: We here in the upper left coast would like to draw attention to your egregious neglect of a thing named after our first President. Seven million residents share my outrage.
That is all! You may now lick your wounds from your tongue lashing.
@danielx: To you excellent list I was going to add Trump-o-line. The image in my mind was at once horrifying and disturbingly amusing.
Imagine all the body parts and hair extensions flying in different directions. Or not.
Surely there is a pizza place close by where you can just pick it up if you don’t want delivery. Or a joint where you can eat in. Around here, there’s a great pizza place about every quarter mile.
@danielx: Starting to sound like Forrest Trump. Oh, wait, that was shrimp.
@LivinginExile: Are you actually Stormy Daniels?
So, the totus thug will lose in 2020? Nice try.

I don’t care for salt packed canned American Anchovies at all. But European fresh anchovies, from Spain or Italy, that’s a whole different flavor of fish! Not salty, just clean oceanic fish flavor.
When we toured in NE Spain and SW France, the seafood was wonderful. Little octopi in olive oil, fresh anchovies, all kinds of great fresh seafood. Then a few years later in Tuscany,, more wonderful seafood, including fresh anchovies.
I am posting in the triumph of the dumb open thread because I am super dumb.
Only if it contains Donald Trump.
@J R in WV:
My mouth is watering!
I spent some time in Mallaig, Scotland (“kipper capital of the world”) a long time ago, and on the Isle of Skye, and had kippers for breakfast every morning for a week. Lunch and dinner were always venison something — venison steak, venison broth, venison stew, sliced venison sandwiches for a tramp, some kind of ground venison meatloaf/burger thing, etc.
OMG, that was some fine eating.
@plato: As Homer Simpson might say ‘….mmmmm…. Oligarchs!” They are rich people too, my friend.
Anyone else remember when the Repugs tried to take FDR off the dime and replace him with Reagan?
Mike in NC
@prob50: Yes, even Nancy wasn’t keen on the idea. There was definitely a Cult of Reagan, but would be dwarfed by the Cult of Trump.
@divF: That could also apply to Hillary Clinton! ///
Not at all. Any connoisseur of pizza will tell you it’s best straight out of the oven, and the crust only declines in quality the longer it’s been out. By the time a pizza has made it to your house, it’s way past its prime.
So many ways the rich & corrupt have rigged the system favoring them at every turn.
@SiubhanDuinne: How about Trump branded kid cages?
Does flexible extension mean longer rope? EU is trolling the limeys at this point.

@Roger Moore: Someone less polite than I am could make a joke here about Subaru Diane also being past her prime, but, as Richard M. Nixon was fond of saying, “that would be wrong.”
@prob50: On the other hand, there is the movement to take Pres. Washington off our one-dollar paper currency and replace him with Pres. Clinton
This has gained a surprising level of support – just look at all the vending machines that already say…
“Insert Bill Here”
I think if you averaged the IQs of his entire base, his would be lower. He may not be as dumb as his dumbest supporter though. But I wouldn’t bet on it. Not even using your money.
@Enhanced Voting Techniques:
I wonder if Trump knows what day it is. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t know what year is or what decade this is. The century is right out.
At the very end of the 1979 Camp David summit, as President Carter was about to announce the first first-ever peace treaty between Egypt and Israel, Egyptian prime minister Sadat had one final demand.
Sadat: This deal will be unpopular with my people. I’ll be thrown out of office, or maybe assassinated. My nation will not honor me with a monument or city. That is unacceptable.
Carter: (long sigh) OK, there’s a huge part of my nation that doesn’t even have a name. We’ll call it the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge, and everyone will call it Anwar. OK?
Israeli prime minister clears his throat.
Carter: (even longer sigh) OK Menachem, what do you want?
And ever since that day, at the entrance of every major highway is a sign announcing in capital letters, BEGIN INTERSTATE.
@The Lodger: Afraid not.
