    Want a great Holiday song? Tim Minchin – White Wine In The Sun

  • We have a winner: “…Trump is a YouTube commenter who happened to have inherited a lotta money.”

  • Badgerite

    Donald Trump was surprised and cowered in the face of an ill tempered Eagle. And about the only thing the Donald “carries” is a lot of his own personal bodyguards, I’m sure.

      “This video does not exist.”

        I was trying to post Six to Eight Black Men by David Sedaris. It is one of my favorite Christmas classics. It never fails to put me in stitches.

          A holiday classic! Thanks for posting it.

    Translation: ” How dare you bash Ted Cruz’s dopey looks because Hilary is fat ( or something) .. That is why she doesn’t get the votes.”
    (Purple finger equal proof of vote cast in Iraq. Remember?)
    This person has invented their own language. What a genius!

    Dear Bob & Chez, you know what would be a wonderful Xmas present for your listeners? A compilation of the funniest Bidondi clips inter-cut with tRump’s bluster. I think it has possibilities. Thanx in advance for your consideration.

    It sounds like someone’s kitten is playing with a bottle cap on a kitchen floor through a fair portion of the first 3rd of the show, fellas. It was distracting. However, as usual, the show was terrific!

    Suggestions for Dr. show music:

    Massive Attack: Teardrop (House M. D.)

    ER opening theme:

    And the “good guy with a gun” rhetoric always makes me think that this is what the 2nd Amendment fetishists hope to emulate:

    Sorry for all the TV openings. But I’ve had a few cold ones so…..

    Nice holiday spirit, Chez.

    The official explanation for Rand Paul’s inclusion is kind of hilarious:

    “In the light of new polling released this morning and in the spirit of being as inclusive as possible, CNN has decided to include Sen. Rand Paul in the prime-time debate,” a CNN spokeswoman said.

    Something has to thin the herd, and the sooner the better.

    Bob, the best possible translation of that tweet is: “Yaargh! Hildebeast! Wibble! Wibble! Zgoft!”

    You’re right that who’s leading at this point is meaningless, but as Ben Carson’s poll numbers have started to soar like a sheep (“Notice they don’t so much fly as plummet.”), it’s Ted Cruz who has attracted Carson’s fleeing supporters. That seems relevant and important to me.

    And Iowa is important mostly because a stateful of corn-fed pale folk—and, needless to say, our glorious news media—say it is.

    Martin Longman delved into the 1952 Republican platform today, and it’s striking how little has changed, with lots of moaning about those dastardly Democrats, with their tyrannical executive orders and socialisms and class warfare and and and and … Longman concludes:

    Had these loons taken control of the party in 1952, it’s doubtful that there ever would have been a point that people could look back to fondly and say that Washington DC used to function– that there was a postwar consensus on anything.

    Their rhetoric is old. Their tactics are old. Their beliefs systems have been warped forever.

    For a while, though, they were sidelined.

    That’s no longer the case.

    Donald Trump has driven the Republican agenda and, maybe more important, rhetoric so far. The dog whistles have been replaced with air-raid sirens (yes, I’ve used that metaphor before, give me a break) and Ronald Reagan’s famous Eleventh Commandment—”Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”—lies in sticks and splinters on the floor. No matter what the outcome of the next eleven months, the GOP will be changed, and I’m afraid the country will suffer for it.

    Dr Nick Riviera (“That’s what we look like inside? It’s disgusting!”) would have been embarrassed to produce a letter like that. Trump wrote it, no doubt.

    Had he been in Paris, the short-fingered vulgarian would have been filling his classy, luxurious pants had he been in Paris—and he’d have shot himself in the leg trying to get his ankle gun out of its holster—but it’s expected for any Righty—okay, fine, Trump isn’t reliably Right-wing, so let’s say “Republican” instead—to feed the fantasies of those obsessed with their detachable death penises (I think that comes from Atrios, but I can’t remember for sure).

    I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: Donald Trump is a carnival barker, with apologies to carnival barkers.

    Bob, a few seconds of Vince Guaraldi almost makes up for that godawful countdown-to-Christmas jingle you insist on playing. Every. Damn’. Year.

    There’s a world of difference between firing one’s trusty shootin’ arn on the gun range—or, worse, plinking cans and bottles out in the woods—and reacting to a “shots fired” situation. There’s a one-in-a-very-big-number chance of firing a golden BB and stopping a bad guy with a gun, but there’s a one-in-a-rather-small-number chance of shooting an innocent. Hell, even the police, who train for that sort of thing, get surprised by shooters and usually miss the bad guy far more than they hit him/her. To think some untrained goober would do better is a delusion.

    Bob, Donald Trump has one core value: ME! ME! ME! ME! ME!
