(Although I think technically it would be "the leopards are eating the leopards' faces now" as the latter instance is plural but I don't think anyone would care. Except, clearly, me.)

I will die on the hill of correct apostrophe usage. (My pet peeve: Using an apostrophe to make a plural noun [e.g., one apple, two apple's]. ARGH!)

Oh that one burns me. I become disinterested in typing at people who make that kind of error. I've seen it on many store signs too.

Dear Jeff -first of all, thank you.

Secondly, this passage rose above all of the others:

"House Republicans are increasingly disenchanted with Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., saying his leadership of the Biden impeachment inquiry has become a “clueless investigation” at best and — at worst — “a disaster.”"

It's striking that GOP and "Leadership" can still be used in the same sentence. I would think the sentence would push apart and split in two like two magnets repelling each other. And speaking of repelling, one need only say "Matt Gaetz" to ruin an appetite or a moment of zen.

Don’t you mean when you drop water on the magnets? Orange Diaper Don said "Think of it, magnets. Now all I know about magnets is this: Give me a glass of water, let me drop it on the magnets, that's the end of the magnets." Let’s keep the science real here folks. 🤪

Still laughing at Congressman Plankhead. Another one of the GOP's accountability escape artist's who has been getting away with all kinds of shit for a long time unlike his partner in crime, who got the 11.5 years he deserved. Pervey McForehead needs to be brought to justice for statutory rape and his role on 1/6.

Yes, but it's STUPID evil, which may be the worst kind. MTG has it too, and so does Boebert. They just continually throw shit against the wall and say, "Come for me!" Well, now hopefully, someone is coming for Gaetz.

Lindsey, there is no shame in admitting you are gay. There is a hell of a lot more shame in stuffing your head up TFG’s ass. Glad to hear you may be coming to your senses, somewhat. A piece of advice, take his power away, tell him to fuck off and deny anything he says. Who knows, you might LEAD A REVOLUTION and save DEMOCRACY!!

Expand full comment

How do you know Lindsay Graham is gay? I don’t recall him coming out. Isn’t that the person’s choice to make to say if he is or is not? He may be a kiss ass Republican piece of shit (demonstrably many times over), but I don’t believe it is kind to call someone out if they aren’t out themselves. Maybe I missed his announcement. If so, I apologize.

Expand full comment

I think Jean's point is that no, Lindsey has not come out, but yes, everyone by now assumes that he is gay. And hopefully THAT'S not what Trump "has" on him, because it's a non-issue by now with all but his supporters...oops. I hope that if it is the case, he does come out, because it might give moral support to some Christian conservative gay folks.

Thanks for the assist-you are right on target!

1) It's so much an open secret that many think being gay is not what tfg has on LG but his use of underage escorts.

2) My mind was changed about this after seeing The Life and Times of Harvey Milk. Something along the lines of "As United States Congressman Barney Frank argued during the 2006 Mark Foley scandal, "I think there's a right to privacy. But the right to privacy should not be a right to hypocrisy. And people who want to demonize other people shouldn't then be able to go home and close the door and do it themselves."

Ok, but it’s “kind” to call him a “Republican piece of shit”, vs gay? 😂😂

I think what Trump has on Lindsay is more than him being gay. He’d survive just that revelation since it’s assumed anyway. Must be something quite damning.

Expand full comment

Since that day of golf for Lindsay, I've speculated that it's something to do with rent-boys, or maybe a dead rent-boy, or maybe even a dead 14-year-old rent-boy. But of course, it's just speculation based on Lindsay's COMPLETE 180 overnight.

I suspect that what Graham has on Trump is just as bad as what Trump has on Graham. Why else would he now do a 180?

Expand full comment

Which was their choice and no one else’s. Why is it so important to say what someone’s sexual identity is, unless you’re trying to paint it as something undesirable or abnormal? That is not what the Democratic Party or progressives stand for and I am totally against it.

Expand full comment

I don't care if he or anyone else is gay, it's about as relevant as being left-handed.

It's the hypocrisy, like voting against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act to co-sponsoring the Defense of Marriage Act. Same goes for Sen. Larry "Wide-stance" Craig.

Expand full comment

and the problem with keeping anything like this secret is that it gives leverage to the unscrupulous (like tffg) -- I completely understand wanting to keep your private life private but if you're a public figure, there are other considerations.

Expand full comment

Exactly

Expand full comment

Because it perpetuates the false right-wing belief that a gay person CHOOSES their sexuality. It's that, and only that, that they base their hate and derision on. They don't think gay people should have "special rights" or be in a protected class because, they say, gays CHOOSE to be gay. To out someone, which I don't agree with in principle, IS called for when that person is using their powerful position to vote against gay legislation. That kind of hypocrisy needs to be exposed, and if their own sexuality is exposed in the process, even though they chose to hide it, then too bad.

Expand full comment

It's like choosing to be tall 😉

Re Trump's golf cheating, Fun Fact: Caddies at a certain golf club refer to Trump as "Pele," because of how often he kicks opponents' balls into worse lies, or his own into better ones. Remember, too, that once Trump played a kid who was, like, 13, and cheated at that, too. Can you imagine the psychological warping it must take, to cheat so much, and still believe you "won"? No, you can't.

Expand full comment

Taking the kids cancer money gave me a pretty big clue🪳

Expand full comment

I'm trying to imagine how one would gain satisfaction from "winning" by cheating?

All I can say is that his locus of control must be 100% exterior, outside of himself. I think this is one of the keys to the Mango Mussolini's personality.

From Wikipedia:

"Locus of control is the degree to which people believe that they, as opposed to external forces (beyond their influence), have control over the outcome of events in their lives. The concept was developed by Julian B. Rotter in 1954, and has since become an aspect of personality psychology. A person's "locus" (plural "loci", Latin for "place" or "location") is conceptualized as internal (a belief that one can control one's own life) or external (a belief that life is controlled by outside factors which the person cannot influence, or that chance or fate controls their lives).

Individuals with a strong internal locus of control believe events in their life are primarily a result of their own actions: for example, when receiving exam results, people with an internal locus of control tend to praise or blame themselves and their abilities. People with a strong external locus of control tend to praise or blame external factors such as the teacher or the difficulty of the exam."

Expand full comment

Did you mean LOCUSTS?? 😂

Expand full comment

What happens when you combine Dunning-Kruger with an external Locus of Control? You are convinced you know something when you don't (magnets don't work when they get wet) and have no accountability for telling everyone these lies because you have no internal control. It's all someone else's fault.

Expand full comment

LDFF perhaps breaks the mold on that loci thing. If it’s something that turns out really good, he believes he did it & nobody could have done it better; but if an event turns out badly or he’s accused of wrongdoing, then it’s always from forces beyond his control, they’re out to get me, it’s not fair, etc.

I just finish the book his niece, Mary, wrote about him. It is so revealing of his personality & how he got that way.

If you believe what she has to say, & I do, boy is that ever a dysfunctional family. Mean, vindictive, greedy
