Blatantly Partisan

(Cartoonist - Joel Pett)

In other news, the first person to die in the U.S. after being infected with the Zika virus has died in the state of Utah according to the local health department. Congress still hasn't done anything about the virus.

Meanwhile, Congress has voted to place limits on the amount of money afforded to ex-presidents which apparently only became a problem now that the first black president is poised to leave office. I wonder why.

Finally, GOP nominee Donald Trump reportedly spent $120,000 of his "charity" foundation's money on a lavish trip to a French vineyard. Very little of the money actually came from Trump himself.

It was exceptionally difficult to stay motivated today so you'll have to forgive the light posting. Hopefully everyone can have a relatively peaceful weekend free of various horrors.

    No funding for Zika, but they’re going on an appropriately named 7 week recess. Just in time to come back and blame the now full blown epidemic on Obama and Hillary.

      No funding for Zika and yet millions of dollars spent on a bullshit email “scandal” that amounted to nothing more than finger-wagging.

    Have a good weekend JM. No need to apologize. I barely dip a toe into the political cesspool and often all I want to do is sit on my back porch with a bottle of bourbon and watch the squirrels bounce through the trees.
