I am a huge fan of Randy Rainbow. He has been gifted with so much wonderful material from this administration. But his latest is special.

This one's a bit old, but I still like it. Cohen is one of the greatest trolls of all time.
The thing is, when Cohen does one of these song based trolling attempts, it's hard to tell whether the people singing along are doing it because they agree with what's being said, or just because it's catchy.

I know that. He's dressed in a pretty over the top costume, so they could have easily realized it was a joke and went along with it anyway. It was obvious when people were doing this in some of his other trolls. You just don't see the full crowd here.

The crowd kind of turns on him and starts booing instead after the main video cuts off. It might be that he pushes it too far. The organizer also complained about him. Apparently he funded a major portion of the event, including security, and could not be booted from the stage as a result.

Almost everything about him is over the top. I can take him in small doses.

But I adore Randy Rainbow.

Not a meme, just lovin' the tag cloud from my favorite sorta-Texas-centered not-a-political-blog rather a professional political organization aka The World's Most Dangerous Beauty Salon, Juanita Jean's.

you tell it girl.jpg



Juanita Jean's latest refers to news of the arrest of Mr. Bannon....​
"Y’all don’t bother me right now. I am very busy dancing on the table tossing glitter around and blasting Honky Tonk Woman (my holy song) on every speaker in the house."​
Well come to think of it she may not focus on satire so much as just tellin' it how it is in plain unvarnished Texaspeak.​

It's great. Dems should just use it as an ad and buy slots for it a few dozen times this fall in prime time. It's right down the middle of the America I used to know, even if that America was also the land of Archie Bunker. First save the damn country, then worry about which way to go to fix it up.

Besides, Dems are the party of self deprecation and jokes about tripping over each other in our big tent mode. A country without a sense of humor is pretty much lost... and there's still time to save the USA with a step back to look and have a laugh at and with ourselves.

What was that segment in the old Reader's Digests on granny's bedside table and in doctor's offices? Yeah: Laughter is the best medicine.

Man Who Famously Died From Covid Says Covid Isn't Very Deadly
Former presidential hopeful Herman Cain died of covid-19 on July 30, but that hasn’t stopped the man from tweeting. In fact, Cain (or whoever is running his account, if you don’t believe in ghosts) has been tweeting about a subject near and dear to his lifeless heart: How the coronavirus pandemic is overblown and not a real threat to Americans.

“It looks like the virus is not as deadly as the mainstream media first made it out to be,” the Herman Cain Twitter account tweeted on Sunday, linking to an article with a lot of misleading information.

It looks like twitter has at last removed pizza guy's account.

British Writer Pens The Best
Description Of Trump I’ve
Read
Nate White
“Why do some British people not like Donald
Trump?” Nate White, an articulate and witty writer
from England wrote the following response:
A few things spring to mind. Trump lacks certain
qualities which the British traditionally esteem. For
instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no
credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no
wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness,
no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities,
funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama
was generously blessed. So for us, the stark contrast
does rather throw Trump’s limitations into
embarrassingly sharp relief.
Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be
laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty
or even faintly amusing – not once, ever. I don’t say
that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not
ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the
British sensibility – for us, to lack humour is almost

inhuman. But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even
seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke
is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of
cruelty.
Trump is a troll. And like all trolls, he is never funny
and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers. And
scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults – he
actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like
algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.
There is never any under-layer of irony, complexity,
nuance or depth. It’s all surface. Some Americans
might see this as refreshingly upfront. Well, we don’t.
We see it as having no inner world, no soul. And in
Britain we traditionally side with David, not Goliath. All
our heroes are plucky underdogs: Robin Hood, Dick
Whittington, Oliver Twist. Trump is neither plucky, nor
an underdog. He is the exact opposite of that. He’s not
even a spoiled rich-boy, or a greedy fat-cat. He’s more
a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege.
And worse, he is that most unforgivable of all things to
the British: a bully. That is, except when he is among
bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a snivelling
sidekick instead. There are unspoken rules to this stuff
– the Queensberry rules of basic decency – and he
breaks them all. He punches downwards – which a

gentleman should, would, could never do – and every
blow he aims is below the belt. He particularly likes to
kick the vulnerable or voiceless – and he kicks them
when they are down.
So the fact that a significant minority – perhaps a third
– of Americans look at what he does, listen to what he
says, and then think ‘Yeah, he seems like my kind of
guy’ is a matter of some confusion and no little distress
to British people, given that:
• Americans are supposed to be nicer than us, and
mostly are.
• You don’t need a particularly keen eye for detail to
spot a few flaws in the man.
This last point is what especially confuses and
dismays British people, and many other people too; his
faults seem pretty bloody hard to miss. After all, it’s
impossible to read a single tweet, or hear him speak a
sentence or two, without staring deep into the abyss.
He turns being artless into an art form; he is a Picasso
of pettiness; a Shakespeare of shit. His faults are
fractal: even his flaws have flaws, and so on ad
infinitum. God knows there have always been stupid
people in the world, and plenty of nasty people too. But
rarely has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so

stupid. He makes Nixon look trustworthy and George
W look smart. In fact, if Frankenstein decided to make
a monster assembled entirely from human flaws – he
would make a Trump.
And a remorseful Doctor Frankenstein would clutch out
big clumpfuls of hair and scream in anguish: ‘My
God... what... have... I... created?' If being a twat was
a TV show, Trump would be the boxed set.
