Kathleen Turner Zombie Time (Plus Presidential Drama)

It’s less than two weeks away from Election Day, I’m a political semi-professional, and I sound like a congested Kathleen Turner looking to audition for a reboot of the Night of the Living Dead.  Eat your heart out George Romero.  …or…you know, let me do it.  Of all the times to get sick.

Meanwhile, Wolf Blitzer has successfully bullied Lincoln Chafee out of the Democratic Primary race. It’s like SNL is prophetic.  Though in fairness you didn’t really need to be a prophet to predict this shit.

We should also bid fairwell to Jim Webb.  Of course he says he may run as an Independent because the problem isn’t his candidacy but rather the corrupt Democratic Party that weirdly insists that a guy whose primary name recognition stems from him bragging about killing people in ‘nam is probably not going to fly as a presidential candidate.

Whatever, how about Hillary Clinton answering questions before the BullshitBengazi committee for 11 hours.  How on earth are there that many questions to ask about a thing that happened three years ago that you’ve spent $4.6 million investigating?  Happily, at least, over the course of 11 hours of questioning, Hillary Clinton managed to be so cool that even conservatives felt that she embarrassed Republicans on the committee.

If only I could feel that good right now. I’m both hot and cold.  Filled with mucus…and yet my throat is dry and scratchy.

BS Attacks on Repro-Rights Watch:

the practices of providers of second and third trimester abortions, including partial birth abortion and procedures that may lead to a child born alive as a result of an attempted abortion;Look out for this term “live-birth abortion”.  Seriously.  Partial birth abortion wasn’t good enough for these assholes.  Rep. Virginia Foxx (demented long-lost sister of Phyllis Schlafly I’m pretty sure) introduced a resolution to – among other things:
“the practices of providers of second and third trimester abortions, including partial birth abortion and procedures that may lead to a child born alive as a result of an attempted abortion”
Obviously the resolution passed with flying colors because the US House of Representatives is chock full of people who hate women.
Things I’m Binge-Watching to Survive
  • Parks and Recreation – It’s on Hulu and Netflix.  Go watch it.  In fact…

  • Veep – If you like the word fuck and politics (and I’m honestly not sure which one of those things I love more) then you need to watch Veep.
  • Difficult People – Hulu’s original show exec produced by Amy Poehler, starring Julie Kasner and Billy Eichner is fantastic.  They’re as awful to people as I would like to be most days and that makes me feel good inside.  It’s only one season at this point so at 8 episodes it’s more like a mini-binge, but whet your palette.  You’ll love it.
