News as Parody

From a presidency that could not be parodied, to a Congress that cannot be.

Maybe the events themselves are starting to just be the parody.

Mysteries of Life

The right-wing nutjobs are having no trouble getting to the bottom of certain mysteries.

As much as Tom Tomorrow is trying to make this look like parody, he’s only putting their same words into the mouth of his funny character wearing the deerstalker.

Simulacron

A mildly sophomoric discussion can be fun to have about whether the universe we experience is “real,” or just an elaborate simulation some other universe is running.

Tom Tomorrow explores this avenue in a pretty desperate attempt to mask his straight-up reporting of the news, as “parody.” Which we know, since early 2017. is un-possible. #NoParody

Masks & Taxes

They don’t care. There is no shame. It’s impossible. They are getting what they want, and they simply don’t give a f* who it hurts. If you look at their attitude about wearing masks during the pandemic, I saw a meme that sums it up:

In hindsight, it may have been a mistake to tell Americans that wearing masks was for the protection of OTHER people

And now, this.

For many reasons, not least these four posted by a friend of mine on Pluspora.com yesterday, I sadly predict that this latest “Oh, boy, we’ve got him NOW!” moment will pass just like all the others did.

  • His followers would have to accept that they were conned. They won’t do it.
  • He will yell “fake news” and his followers will chant along because they’ve been well trained.
  • His followers dig his hateful policies and don’t care that he’s actually a fraud and a loser as long as he hates the same people they hate.
  • His followers think tax avoidance is what rich people do, so Trump’s tax returns are aspirational for them. (They won’t recognize the business failures part.)

Cliff!

Isn’t that what we yell now? After all, the Pumpkin has pretty much trashed every Norm!

Oh by the way, Happy Bastille Day! Where my guillotine at?
