They say that brevity is the soul of wit. Brevity has never been one of my long suits. However, there is no possible way to cover a fraction of what transpired yesterday.
I got up this morning and the sun was out for the first time in what seemed weeks. A fitting metaphor for the beginning of a new era. We can look forward to 4 years of liberal whining, temper tantrums, celebrities preening, and the term ‘fake news’ taken to a whole new level.
I’m going to try to break this down into several easy-to-digest posts. A large number of links I had bookmarked have been deleted since news has a rather short shelf life.
THIS CLASSLESS HACK WAS SUPPOSED TO INTRODUCE VICE PRESIDENT PENCE. HE STARTED TO FILIBUSTER AND THE CROWD SHOWED THEIR APPRECIATION FOR THE VENOM HE ALWAYS HAS READY TO SPIT AT THE FIRST REPUBLICAN THAT COMES INTO RANGE.
[CtH: I can ignore the alt-left whack jobs, but when the minority leaders in Congress call us vile names, it really rankles. Besides which, Pelosi is a fellow Catholic and Schumer is my senior senator, so they bug me even more! Harumph.]
The Thrill: The Story of Chris Matthews and Barack Obama
HIS MANCRUSH HAS LEFT THE BUILDING
[CtH: Seriously? Did these people watch the same speech I did?!]
‘Is he crazy enough try something? To drop a bomb in the middle of the Pacific? Something I have to react to.’
‘And that would be — but I’m thinking, when [President Trump] said today, America first, it was not just the racial, I mean I shouldn’t say racial, the Hitlerian background to it, but it was the message I kept thinking.’
THE TINGLE IS GONE
“It was militant and it was dark,” Maddow said. “The crime, the gangs, the drugs, this ‘American carnage,’ disrepair, decay. You can’t imagine the outgoing president giving a speech like that.”
[CtH: No, cuz Obama just lied about how great everything has been under his watch and then right back to blaming whites, Republicans, and cops for everything bad.]
Maddow: Trump’s Speech ‘Militant,’ ‘Dark,’ ‘America First Has ‘Dark Echoes’ of Anti-Semitism
I CONFESS TO SWITCHING THE CHANNEL A COUPLE TIMES JUST TO DRINK IN THE ANGST

IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN HILLARY GIVING SLICK WILLIE THE DEATH STARE, YOU NEED TO
[CtH: I’m sorry that this is just FUNNY!]
[CtH: I actually saw someone on Facebook going on and on about how beautiful and classy and wonderful Michelle was as FLOTUS. I remember a lot of this scowling and sneering and especially that time she rolled her eyes and said, “All this for a flag.” Also, that other time when she let the WH organic garden go to hell, because the government was shut down and she couldn’t be bothered to LET’S MOVE her butt out there and harvest any of that good produce she supposedly cared so much about.]
[CtH: I gotta give them credit for coming. This had to be a very bitter pill, but unlike the whiny House Democrats who had to retire to their safe space and suck on their binkies, these two actually came.]
[CtH: I’d like to see the condition of D.C. that the Trump supporters left, so we could compare it to the mountains of TRASH those Obama inauguration fans left. Also, please to point out that a bajillion Pro-Lifers like Dearest are already committed to a trip to Washington next week and, yeah, can’t afford to take that much time off from work in a single month. ]
