One of the more remarkable developments of this twisted and sick election has been the revelation that Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert and supposed champion of the downtrodden in corporate America, is actually a cheerleader for fascism. If you have been following his blog, you will note that he has been in the tank for Trump since the beginning of this year. In his Twitter mentions he has been quite blunt in protesting that he has not been-even while he has argued again and again that Trump is the "master of persuasion". Suffice it to say, a lot people-myself included- have found this revelation that Adams has allied himself with team fascism to be a huge disappointment.

Twitter in particular has been a revelation of what a self centered and arrogant prick Adams wants to portray himself to be. Responding to valid criticisms of his morally reprehensible position, he doubles down on his bet-attacking his critics and trying to posture himself as person of superior intellect. Problem is-being in the tank for Trump is anything but.

Now Adams takes a weaselistic approach saying that he is not endorsing Trump, first stating that he was endorsing Clinton for fear for his personal safety. He subsequently endorsed Trump, but when it was revealed that Trump was a handsy sleazeball-he "parked" his endorsement with Gary Johnson.

Yessiree, a real bastion of commitment this guy.

The problem is, that in his writing he makes it clear that he is still and always has been an unrepentant Trumpkin. He has "scored" the debates for Trump-even when it was clear Trump was jumping head first into the sewer of politics. He defends his approach as being logical, when in fact it's anything but. When you walk in shit, it sticks to your comic strip shoes.

Directly calling Mr. Adams out about his stupidity seems ineffective, since Adams basically has the soul of Catbert and could care less about how he is perceived by his former fans, so the internet being the internet, has resorted to mockery.

And a couple of people have created some mockery of true genius.

A woman named Alexandra Erin has been particularly effective, using Adams own work against him with the skill of a surgeon-cutting quite deep.



But wait, there is more!


And while we are at it:



Perfectly captured the "classic" Dilbert vibe juxtaposed against Adam's current hilarious idiocy. Bravo.

And you can forget about getting any Dilbert merchandise from me for Christmas.

There is never a thesaurus around when you need one…….

And if you were a news reporter, you needed one this last weekend. Because they all had to spend a lot of time talking about this:



And there are only so many euphemisms you can come up with.

Fortunately for us all. Samantha Bee was busy looking in the Webster's, so you don't have to. This take down of the Orange Cheeto is just awesome.



So now you have a some synonyms you can use. Personally, "sin grotto" is a new one for me.

Let’s talk about sex instead.

Because we cannot talk about politics at work, ever. Here is what happens when a co-worker tries to talk about politics with me .

Rule #1: I am always right in a political argument.

Rule #2: When in doubt, see rule # 1.

Red Dress Rules

My apologies for the absence this week. Was down in Croatia taking some well deserved time off. We went to Split and then drove from there down to Montenegro and the town and bay of Kotor. Its a beautiful place and worth the time to visit. That said-driving there is a pain in the ass. From Croatia one has to go through Bosnia Herzegovina, where according to Google Maps, the E-65 continues on through. ( An expressway that is beautiful in Croatia). But it was closed 10km inside the BIH border. From then on , well lets just say the roads were less than optimum until you get to Montenegro. Especially in the Republic of Srpska . It is  one of two constitutional and legal entities of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the other being the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is not a great place. In my opinion and in the opinion of the cow that tried to run over our rental car. ( True story).

But Montenegro was ok, with improved roads that twisted through the mountains on the way to Kotor. While on the way I had to give the S.O. a mini-history lesson of sorts, since it was apparent she must have slept through most of the 90's, or as I suspect, she spent too much time watching boring shows on NHK and not enough time watching the news.

Also for me, it was a bit of stroll down memory lane since I had flown over much of Croatia and Bosnia during Operation Deny Flight in 1994 and 1995. We just never landed there.

While exploring the old city of Kotor though, twice we stumbled upon wedding parades. Suffice it to say the girl watching was pretty nice:

Kotor Red

MILF or Millennial, the red dress always works!


This picture was taken on Sunday after we had finished hiking up to the fortress on the mountain above the town. However the previous night, there was a wedding procession through the old town to the church. One again, the red dress proved its worth:

Kotor Red1

The bow tie has to be a clip on!

Kotor 3

These folks stopped in at a cafe on the wall for a pregame warm-up.

Kotor 4

And we have to pay homage to these:

Blue dresses look pretty nice too! Wonder how you say, "Nice Rack!" in Serbo-Croatian?

Blind squirrels and acorns

Do sometimes get together.

If you have been coming here for a decent interval you know that I hold both the National Review and the Weekly Standard in utter contempt. I read them to find out how the ill informed voter thinks and to find satire worthy materials. But every so often they produce something praise-worthy and they deserve credit where it is due.

So lets all take a gander at William "The Bloody" Kristol's gem of Shakespere quotes about He, Trump. Enjoy the acorn.

But as to the competition: I asked, "What lines of Shakespeare best characterize Donald Trump?" I stipulated that you'd get no credit for comparing Trump's campaign to "a tale/Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,/Signifying nothing." (Macbeth Act V Scene v) That one was just too obvious.

What did you all come up with? Lots of apt Shakespearean descriptions for Trump's campaign or the man himself. I feel I've done a good deed in enticing many of you back to Shakespeare (if you'd ever been away). In any case, here are a few apt and brief contributions (after all, "brevity is the soul of wit").

Regarding the outcome of New York's primary (and probably tomorrow's contests as well):

"Lord, what fools these mortals be!" (A Midsummer Night's Dream Act 3 Scene ii)

Regarding Trump's disparagement of John McCain and other POW's:

"He jests at scars that never felt a wound." (Romeo and Juliet Act II Scene ii)

Regarding Trump himself:

"An infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise breaker, the owner of no one good quality." (All's Well That Ends Well Act III Scene vi)


"The empty vessel makes the greatest sound." (Henry V, Act IV Scene iv)


"Masters, do not forget to specify, when time and place shall serve, that I am an ass." (Much Ado About Nothing Act V Scene i)

And regarding the appropriate response to Trump:

"Never, never, never, never, never!" (King Lear V iii)

Because we all need a good laugh.

Published by under Fun things!

And I am steadily getting drunk on St. Patrick's day. I will observe, Guiness tastes better in Ireland from a tap than from a can in Stuttgart. 

Nonetheless, I came across this little tidbit on Facebook today and just had to share. If you say you didn't laugh, I know that either you are lying or you are a terrible prude.

10294428_1140785179313209_1334686957538923751_n (1)

As I said, if you didn't laugh, you are really repressed.


On the other side of the scale here is some news that should scare the bejesus out of you.Ted Cruz named his foreign policy team:


The first name on the advisory list that stands out is Frank Gaffney, a former Reagan administration Pentagon official who has emerged as a lightning rod in the Obama era, accused by the Southern Poverty Law Center of being one of the nation's leading Islamophobes.

Once you start with Frank Gaffney, there's no place to go but…down?

But wait, there is more!

As Cruz makes the case that he is the last, best chance to prevent Trump from winning his party's nomination, his foreign-policy advisers include not only Gaffney, but also three others who work for Gaffney's think tank: former CIA officers Fred Fleitz and Clare Lopez and former Army Special Forces Master Sergeant Jim Hanson. Also on the list is Andrew McCarthy, a former assistant U.S. attorney who prosecuted the first World Trade Center bombing. McCarthy has been outspoken in his view that adherents at least to political Islam are seeking to impose Sharia law in the U.S.

Jesus fucking tap-dancing Christ.


And then of course there is this. ( Hat Tip to the chicks at Wonkette):

Little Marco Rubio, having failed spectacularly at the Republican primary and life in general, came back to the Senate Thursday:


We’re going to give you a moment to digest that picture fully.

You ready?

The Little Magic Elf I Am shoes he keeps in his Senate office, because he’s got places to be (home in bed all the way under the covers with his butt in the air screaming “I don’t wanna!”). Things to do? Not so much.


The curse is, that you live in interesting times.

An explanation of Net Neutrality anyone can understand.

Published by under Assholes,Fun things!

America's dumbest Senator distinguished himself the other day by tweeting this:


Thanks a lot dickhead! By tweeting this, you proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that you know nothing about health care OR Net Neutrality. Any one who is buying the latest Fox News BS about the issue-clearly does not understand the issue.

So, as a Public Service-the American Porn Industry came to the rescue. Explaining Net Neutrality in a way even Ted Cruz can understand.
