      All that needs is a diving board!

      • aureolaborealis

        I was in a restaurant that roasts their own coffee one time when the power went out. You’d think that would just make everything stop, but the critical thing is it makes everything that modulates the heat of the beans stop working, while the heat is still pretty much all there. So the place filled with coffee smoke and needed evacuating.

    • dslindc

      Lovely. I’ll need about 2374 of them, please.

    • OneYieldRegular

      Even without my watching, I can tell that is SO San Francisco. At least in Berkeley a “small coffee” is something like 64 ounces.

    • Gayer Than Thou

      That’ll be $7.

      • JustPixelz (((Ω)))

        You, my friend, are upper management material!

      • Phoenixdoglover

        Artisanal. Need I say more?

        • Gayer Than Thou

          That’ll be $14 please. Add $3 if you want it “curated.”

          • But…I brought my reusable thermal mug, and I have a student ID.

          • aureolaborealis

            “You didn’t bring a Mason jar? You are irredeemably lost! No coffee, and no $28 artisanal peanut butter and jelly sandwich for you. GTFO, philistine!!!!”

  • Anna Elizabeth

    If this were a movie, we’d say “Remember when Peter Sellers was funny?”

    • therblig

      i’ve know people who never forgave woody allen for making “interiors”

      • Jeffery Campbell

        Really? That’s the only Woody Allen movie I can sit through.

    • Msgr_MΩment

      Now, now, I still liked to watch.

      • Anna Elizabeth

        XD We should talk….

    • JustPixelz (((Ω)))

      Even I can’t remember that far back. Maybe I’ve got that brain thing where I forget things.

      • Anna Elizabeth

        Chili farts?

  • Vincent Ricola

    “The 70-year-old Nolan is charged with one count of human trafficking for allegedly subjecting a minor under the age of 18 to commercial sexual activity.”

    Good lord, it really is all projection with the modern GOP. Maybe someone should start looking for basements in their favorite pizza places.

    • aureolaborealis

      Sidebar: It seems like ‘human trafficking’ these days now encompasses everything that used to be called prostitution. I would have assumed the involvement of a minor leveled this crime up, but I see news stories about what used to be called prostitution busts involving adults that are now called human trafficking cases. Am I missing something?

      “But don’t stop sending those taxes!”

  • Tim Nolan, a former county district judge and schoolboard member….. photos surfaced of him in a KKK outfit….was arraigned for sex trafficking

    *rubs eyes* Mondays are horrible.

    • Gayer Than Thou

      That awkward, career-killing moment when being photographed in a KKK outfit is not actually the worst thing you’ve done.

      • You have to hand it to the right.

      • Magyar Has Had It With Trump

        I never thought child sex crimes would be the norm for a political party

  • baconzgood

    Build that wall?

  • Sedagive ’em Hell

    After watching John Oliver this morning it occurred to me that, as a world citizen, I’ve always been anxious about WWIII; that comes from being born in the post-WWII era, being sentient, and being a student of history.

    As an American, however, I had never even contemplated the unimaginable horror of being on the wrong side of the nuclear holocaust.

    Wakey wakey!

    • Anna Elizabeth

      Not criticizing, just asking cos I haven’t had my tea yet – do you mean, receiving a nuclear attack without being able to retaliate?

      • Sedagive ’em Hell

        No, I mean initiating a nuclear war because of

        1) A Tweet

        2) A typo

        3) A hissy fit

        4) A brain fart

        5) (and most likely) Genocidal stupidity

        • Anna Elizabeth

          Oh, thanx for clarifying. Yes, a madness scenario that makes “Dr. Strangelove” look like a Tinkerbell cartoon. Indeed. Waiting for 1 Superpower or the other to have a brain fart or tech glitch, it came damned close in 1983.

          Sorry, I haz morning brainz.

    • Magyar Has Had It With Trump

      I grew up thinking Regan was going to push the button, so I guess I’ve always suspected we would be the first to launch.

      • Sedagive ’em Hell

        The Reagan Administration were awful in every way, but they were still grounded in military reality. It did not occur to me that they would instigate WWIII out of spite or insanity.

        Bush II post-9/11 did, indeed, start a terrible, terrible war, but they also operated according to established norms (although corrupt and deceitful beyond all reason).

        No – what we have now is overt madness.

      • cmd resistor

        Me, too, although then I let down my guard during Clinton and eventually got to where I didn’t lose sleep over it. Until, of course…..

  • Martini Ambassador 🍸
    • Gayer Than Thou

      This kind of thing gives me a headache. And it really challenges my ability to be “empathetic” to Trump voters who still support him despite all his executive orders and golf trips because it makes me seriously doubt “economic anxiety,” and not … something else … made the vote as they did.

      • pssst…it wasn’t economic anxiety

        • Celtic_Gnome

          The working class has legitimate reasons to be anxious. They’ve been fucked over economically for the last thirty years. The problem is they hitched their wagon to the guy that said, “All your problems have been caused by those colored people over there.”

      • Werewolf

        Say, y’know who else voted out of “economic anxiety “?

        • Celtic_Gnome

          The African American Working Class and the Latino Working Class?

          Of course, they voted overwhelmingly for Hillary.

    • calliecallie

      Mick Mulvaney is an asshole. That guy used to be some kind of congresscritter? Those voters have some esplainin’ to do.

      • bupkus231

        Easy explanation: South Carolina

  • Wellstone En Resistencia, Coño

    Make Alex Jones pay for it just because of reasons.

    • Gayer Than Thou

      Can we just build it with Alex Jones? With votes, or whatever? That would kind of solve two problems with one lunatic.

      • Msgr_MΩment

        Jimmy Hoffa is spinning in his parking lot.

    • Magyar Has Had It With Trump

      IIRC, $arah Palin (or one of her brood), Ted Nugent and Genn Beck have real estate holdings in border states…

      • Erala Contratista

        Bristol has/had a house in a ‘burb of Phoenix Sarah Lou has/had a house in a ‘burb of Scottsdale. Both are a 2-3 hour drive (they drive fast in AZ) from the border.

        How many lone wolves does it take to represent an organized threat? “The world may never know.”

  • Ralph Gauer

    Realizing, as I do, that the West is a bit of a mythic landscape for Easterners — full of bad hombres and cactus and scorpions and Starbucks — I will just point out that Tucson is not remotely a border town.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/04/24/homeland-security-picked-these-high-priority-towns-to-get-trumps-wall/?utm_term=.93a394fbe7ab

    Identified as “high priority” in the
    document are the border sectors of the Rio Grande Valley in the southern
    tip of Texas — encompassing Rio Grande City, McAllen and Weslaco — as
    well as El Paso, Tucson and San Diego.

    • Msgr_MΩment
      • Mumen Rider Justice CRASH!

        Nice to see Juarez finally asserting itself

    • wait! what?

      They’ll have to update that song:

      Send me down to Tucson
      And I’ll get the job done
      (Mainly, because of geographic realities that intersect wall building fantasies. So, I’ve finished before I’ve started.)

    • alwayspunkindrublic

    My annual review is coming up. I’ve done fuck-all this year, unless you count not commenting here and tweeting shit. I’d better issue a series of executive orders so I get a good evaluation.

    • Martini Ambassador 🍸

      Anybody who tells you that you’ve been sitting on your ass all day doing nothing, yell “FAKE REVIEWS” and “BIASED MAINSTREAM MANAGEMENT.” And voilla! Fat pay raise!

      • Gayer Than Thou

        I already tried “I won’t be bound by your heteronormative, bourgeois paradigm of ‘meets deadlines’ and ‘appears to possess basic job-related skills.'”

        • alwayspunkindrublic

          Right? All the things The Man uses to keep us down!

        • ariel_gee_398

          Hey now. If Trump and his Cabinet prove anything, it’s that “appears to possess basic job-related skills” is in no way a requirement for employment.

        • Notreelyhelping

          If you want to make a big impression, tell people: “When I am king, you will be first against the wall.”

        • EvilHRLady

          Snark aside-it’s amazing how often an excuse such as this is tried. My favorite is calling the union rep because the boss is so mean, she actually expects me to come to work regularly.

    • Msgr_MΩment

      Can we write you a good reference letter, because to be fair, your non-commenting has been stellar?

    • alwayspunkindrublic

      Golf more, call up colleagues and threaten them, and pick a fight with someone who isn’t white. You’ll be up for a fat raise.

    • Tell them that you single handedly saved them 1 million ameros because you had no lawsuits lobbied against you.
      Unless you did. In which case, say you saved them 3 million ameros because it could have been worse.

    • ariel_gee_398

      Buy a clipboard and stride rapidly from place to place, as if in a hurry. If anybody tries to engage you in conversation, point to the clip board and say “can’t talk, have to finish this by lunch ( or quittin’ time )”, make a meaningless mark on the
      paper and scurry off. Looking busy is 90% of the game.

    • SadDemInTex

      The situation in Texas is this…housing and construction prices are climbing rapidly because the illegal immigrants that the construction people have relied on for piss poor wages and no benefits are decreasing quickly. And the oligarchs still do not want to pay…so all construction is getting very slow. It WILL NOT mean more jobs for “Americans” because the oligarchs and their minions will not pay one thin dime more because it cuts into profits. I bet they will start smuggling people in.

  • Marceline

    I don’t even trip about the EOs anymore. They’re all theatre where Trump instructs some agency to “review” “examine” or “evaluate” something.

  • Nounverb911
    • Sedagive ’em Hell

        I’m disappointed in Lindsey Graham. Of all the republicans, I hate him least.

        • alwayspunkindrublic

          Which is why I hate him more. He’s one of these Republicans who gets a tremendous amount of credit because once in a blue moon he does something that meets the minimum possible standard of basic human decency. So technically yeah, I guess he is better than most of ’em…it’s just such a low fuckin’ bar.

  • Mumen Rider Justice CRASH!

    Maybe I missed something, but the CATO article seemed pretty straight forward, almost refreshing. The last two paragraphs seemed downright wise.

    • Koch Blockula

      I did not get a butthurt vibe from that Cato post at all either. They must have hired a sane intern to write that piece. How soon will it be taken down and intern let go? Or maybe they are slowly realizing that facts are facts?

    • YoBunnyBunny

      House and Senate members need to base federal counterterrorism policies on facts–such as the role U.S. foreign policy in the Arab and Muslim world plays in fueling terrorism. Members of Congress who want to win the war of “hearts and minds” vis a vis ISIS need to remember that our greatest weapon is a strict adherence to constitutional norms of free association and speech, and that targeting fellow citizens of Arab descent or the Muslim faith for evidence-free surveillance and political repression only validates the ISIS narrative that America is at war with the Muslim and Arab world.

      I can’t believe I’d be responding “THIS” to a CATO post.

      • Mumen Rider Justice CRASH!

        Yeah exactly! Confused the poop out of me.

  • Undocumented Skwerl!

    I just called Trump to let him know I will pay for the wall.

  • YoBunnyBunny

    From the WaPo tortilla curtain article:

    The political tension could backfire on the president. Trump’s insistence on a wall is increasingly doing what some had warned it would do: It’s undermining his relationship with Congress, it’s putting Republican leaders in a no-win scenario on whether to fund it and it could potentially hinder the president’s ability to push other issues and policies.

    If I didn’t believe 100% that Little Digits was a aimless dumbfuck, I’d suspect he really was a secret Democratic plant. If there weren’t so much collateral damage to the republic, I’d say he’s doing a find job of fucking up the GOP from within. Couln’t have happenen to a nicer pit of treasonous vipers.

    • JustPixelz (((Ω)))

      Polls show two-to-one against the wall. Of course, Little Donnie and his minions say unfavorable polls are always wrong and that the wall is extremely popular. So … who are Congressional Rs going to believe: their infallible leader or the polls?

      That’s been the name for the few bits of border fence since at least the 80s. But it’s still funny.

    Given the character of Debbie Schlussel and what appears to be a history of bad blood between them, I guess I wouldn’t actually be surprised if her charges against Hannity are untrue. It would be great if the fair outcome were the destruction of both their careers, not just his.

      The one thing these cartoonists of naked Trump consistently get wrong is his bubble butt.

        True, this.

    So the carrier people who lost their jobs still support Trump. I guess they will support him no matter what because that is easier then admitting they where conned.

    From the article

    “I support him 100 percent,” said Tami Barnett, a 27-year veteran who left
    at the end of March. “I was very pleased he saved the jobs in
    Indianapolis. Do I wish he could have saved mine? Absolutely. But he did
    his best.”

      God forbid they vote for the other candidate, just because her economic plan was judged to create 15 million brand new jobs.

      • Contemplative Ron

        They don’t want new jobs, they want their old jobs back.

        but her e-mails……

    • Contemplative Ron

      Guess he missed the bit where the decision was made under the PREVIOUS administration… oh, wait, then he’d be complaining that Obama took his job.

      • jesterpunk

        With the money Mike Pence gave carrier they could have retrained the people for a better job instead. But that would be socialism or something. Trump’s supporters wont blame him for anything and will still vote for him again no matter what happens.

    I can’t believe I read that whole Melania article. Mostly it just reminded me of many of the reasons I hate that guy, ones I had forgotten. Maybe there were some new ones, also, too.

    That Nolan story and his Halloween costume excuse made me think of the time Cartman dressed as a ghost for Halloween.

      THAT was great.

    Here’s a random Monday morning thought. Wouldn’t it be funny if somebody filed a FOIA request for copies of President Trump’s golf scorecards? His minions claim he doesn’t really play that much golf, but when he does he’s working hard for our nation.

    Well, he’s on salary – not an hourly employee – so if he’s doing the taxpayers’ business out on the links (not really links, of course, but it’s good golf lingo) why can’t we see the results?

  • The Wanderer

    Okay. Today’s a day off, and so far I’ve managed to:
    1. Do a bit of shopping
    2. Made cranberry-orange scones
    3. Laundry after cleaning up from making the scones
    4. Called the local PD (they’re having a document shredding and prescription drug dump party on Saturday)
    5. Supply many non-comments to Wonkette
    6. THERE IS NO #6
    7. Paid some bills

    And now, lunch.

  • Doug Langley

    Just got back from the interview. Seemed to go okay, we’ll see.

      Fingers crossed for you!

      Toes, too.

      Hope you get it!

    One of the best experiences of my life was visiting a penguin colony on the Falkland Islands. They really are magnificent birds. (And most of the beach is covered in penguin droppings.)

    In case there are any hardcore Trumpanzees left among some Wonkers’ family/social circles, we suggest that you send them the AP Trump interview. No punditry, no spin, no bloviating – simply a verbatim transcript; thus, material can’t be dismissed as biased. Then, ask what they thought of it… and watch them squirm (or say they didn’t have time to finish it…). Should be required reading to keep your voter registration card!

    A new book is coming in early May, look for it.

    “Stillborn — The Trump administration’s first 100 days.”

  • Bill Slider

    The thought of Sean Hannity touching another human being for physical pleasure is beyond nauseating, even when the competition was Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    Well, if the only way to keep peace in the world is to get someone to fuck Sean Hannity, I still can’t think of anyone despicable enough that I would wish that fate on her.

    Maybe Mary Trump, for what she unleashed on the world, but she’s dead.

  • Paperless Tiger

    Maybe it will be easier to get the wall funded after Mexico becomes part of China.

  • Khavrinen

    “Trump’s Tortilla Curtain is definitely going to be built, but not right now, though it will be earlier than expected, eventually.”

    How can it be “earlier than expected” when tRump claimed they were going to be starting it “Day 1” and ain’t nuthin’ happened yet?
