I’ve always said that when Mitt Romney enters a room you get the feeling that someone interesting just left. He doesn’t have a presence as much as he creates a void.

But lest anyone think that Romney is a cipher, we should look back at the horrific Republican platform under which he ran for president. The misogyny, the homophobia and the smack-down of all the moochers and takers (remember that?) would make Mitch McConnell smile, and Jeff Sessions fall off of his lily pad.

Sure, why not resurrect Mitt? The wheels are coming off this clown car of an administration, and a blast from the past might provide some much needed comic relief. While we’re at it, let’s see if we can dig up Sarah Palin. It would be nice to see Tina Fey on SNL again.

Mitt and the current squatter in the Oval Office have a few things in common. Both were born with a platinum, jewel-encrusted spoon lodged firmly in their mouths. Both make incomprehensible statements during campaign speeches, and one’s a Mormon, while the other’s a moron. Mere coincidence? I think not.

The president always comes up with insultingly juvenile nicknames for challengers. Hmm, let’s see…what rhymes with Mitt? Ah, Twit! Mitt the Twit! That sounds like something the president would say.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. The president is barely a year into his administration, and we’re already flirting with nuclear Armageddon. With any luck, there won’t be a 2020.

Again Totally Hilarious!

There’s a lot the president is willing to give up, and it’s more than just one or two seasons of Celebrity Apprentice. He’s given up on the poor and middle class. He’s given up our standing in the world. He’s given up trying to find fresh adjectives for “good” and “bad.” He’s long ago given up on nuance, civility, common sense and humility.

(Well, that sort of rhymes, so maybe it’s worth
Trying to finish this comment in verthe–uh, verse:)

When diplomacy matters, you know that he’ll show up, and act like a child who refuses to grow up. He’ll lambaste The Times, and while he’s berating it, he’ll diss the fake news even as he’s creating it.

His big mouth is something I wish we could sew up. It might cost us plenty, but I’d put the dough up, ‘though his tax plan might make the economy blow up.

Obama’s fine legacy he’s sworn to dismantle, although to that man he can’t hold a candle. And if he runs out of people to pillory, he’s likely to turn his attention to Hillary.

As much as he dishes out hate and malaise, he can’t get enough of the vacuous praise. He hires exclusively people who suck up, and then fires them when they—what’s the word–screw up.

And so the strange man in the orange pompadour will dish out embarrassment, and then dish out more. Yet if we impeached him, a year or two hence–we might have to do it again with Mike Pence.

Totally hilarious!

With this president, every week is Ironic Failure Week. I’m sure that if he announced an upcoming energy conference the lights would go out in the middle of his rambling, self-aggrandizing screed. Then he’d claim that Thomas Edison called him afterwards to apologize for spoiling the greatest speech of all time.

The president deserves an award for every abject failure, because he’s pretty much a defective human being at the molecular level. But what about the ordinary folks who serve as apologists for fraud and deceit?

To recognize their contributions, I propose we have an Unscrupulous Liars Week. The first one would go to Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I thought Sean Spicer took the cake, but he always looked troubled when he lied to make the president’s insane, fraudulent or illegal activities look normal. Sanders apparently watched Spicer from the wings as he sputtered and withered in the glare, and said, “Send me in coach!”

It probably doesn’t hurt that her dad made a living lying to the clueless for money. It’s one of those acorn-tree sorts of things.

The Top Quark is said to be the shortest-lived elementary particle in the universe, but it takes second place to Anthony Scaramucci. He gets the Potty Mouth Award for his meteoric rise to fame, which is a tiny scale model of the president’s private commode. There’s a little figure of Reince Priebus at the bottom of the bowl, caught in mid-swirl.

Here it is, the first of March, and it came in like a …. Lion! A giant snow storm is in progress.

Right on schedule, but still a little late for the celebrators and workers in the snow. JimBob was complaining to me a couple weeks ago that the lack of snow was hurting his business and the businesses of a lot of others too, i.e. the snow plowers, roof cleaners, ski resorters, snow mobiler salespeople, etc. But why not try to make up for it now? There’s still the whole of March, 31 days of it. Of course it could warm up.

At least Olympia Snowe went out like a lamb the day before the big storm. But she is now causing a storm in the GOP which is good thing.

When was the last time March came in like a Lion? Using the almanac weather history finder, and going back year by year for Portland, Maine, for March 1, the first serious precipitation I found was 1.86 inches on March 1, 1999. Pretty wimpy of the first decade of the 21rst century, eh? Except for today!!

Go do the masochism tango and watch the crazies spewing garbage over at Minds Erased’s This is what happens when drinking water isn’t filtered! The video gets into the middle of the crazies weekend love fest down in Washington D.C. Questions are asked of the crazies, but they can answer none of them. Like, Fascism, Communism, Smashism who cares, they’re all Obama to them.

But did I hear one woman say she wanted Medicare expanded? She no doubt thinks it’s not a government program. Ignorance in America runs rampant!

UPDATE: Frank Rich this morning doesn’t quite dismiss these kooks and their nutty hero Glenn Beck. They represent deep down some real frustrations for which there is some justification. At least that’s what Rich claims and I think I agree.

Sarah Palin is being ripped to shreds by two NYT Op-Ed columnists, first, Gail Collins in Sarah’s Straight Talk yesterday, and today in Now, Sarah’s Folly by Maureen Dowd.

Reader’s comments are closed on Sarah’s Straight Talk, but the one with the most votes is #13 and reads as follows:

Palin’s incoherence and lack of concentration are her political strengths. The segment of the electorate to which she appeals does not value intellect or eloquence. In fact, these qualities are feared because they imply a lack of faith. A person who is well educated, thoughtful, and can answer questions directly, in complete sentences, is exactly what Palin’s supporters do not want.

Comments on Now, Sarah’s Folly are not closed yet, but the most popular one so far is #14 which reads as follows:

I believe it was F. Scott Fitzgerald who wrote, “When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in the flag carrying a cross…we will have fascism with a happy face.”

I can’t think of anyone who embodies that prophecy better than Good ‘Ol Sarah.

Finally, Debi has come up with some great quotes in her admittedly off-topic comment #3 to my previous post on the Bouncing Boltzmann Brain. Check her out!

What more could I add? 😀 ❓

I found this fascinating video on the blog of Missy, and it’s a hum dinger and real pick me up. Watch this amazing dance group take off on “Do Re Mi” in the Central Station of Antwerp, Belgium, at rush hour. It electrifies and charms the place out of its gourd maybe even drawing a smile from the staid old station master announcer! Watch the expressions on the people’s faces. Totally awesome!
