Rip its heart out

Swank Pirates Only!
I've received reports from a spy in Boca Grande, FL and the short of it is:
Bushie no like Trump!
at the Gasparilla Inn & Club they like they're pirates romanticized and long dead. When the real thing comes along and raids the clubhouse making fun of the members and taking measurements for his planned renovations they don't like it at all - not one bit. Watching the "conservative" pundits freak out over Trump has been great for the KOTCB Blog and the vitriol has increased day by day, month by month as NH primary day approaches (T-minus 31, 30,...) and now Michael Gerson, W's speechwriter and assistant for policy and strategic planning, has pulled out the gun from his desk drawer.
American political parties are durable constructions. But they have been broken before by powerful, roiling issues such as immigration and racial prejudice. Many Republicans could not vote for Trump but would have a horribly difficult time voting for Clinton. The humane values of Republicanism would need to find a temporary home, which would necessitate the creation of a third party. This might help elect Clinton, but it would preserve something of conservatism, held in trust, in the hope of better days.
Great idea Michael, let's put all that Republicanism in a Trust Fund and make sure the ingrate inheritors of Lincoln's bloody sacrifice don't squander it (as though it wasn't squandered 80 years ago) and let responsible techno-DC think tank nerds dole it out as necessary to The States groveling subjects. What shall we call this new Trust, er, Party? The Constitutional Union Party has I nice, traditional sentiment - very Burkian - though I'm not sure Lincoln would approve. Go ahead and use it if you like.

The heart of the GOP has already been ripped out and is being transplanted to the corner of 57th St. and 5th Ave. It had to be done because the thumper stopped beating in 2008 and repeated attempts to revive the patient have failed - prognosis is horrible, but we've got to try something, anything to give it life.
Ripping the heart out of the GOP - boo-hoo, boo-hoo

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers. This list

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.
