Paul A. Gosar, DDS (dumb, demented, senile?)

Rep. Paul A. Gosar (R-Ariz.) seems to have a special kind stupid generally thought limited to fat old white, narrow-minded, bible-thumping hypocritical gerontocrats in the deep south (think Mississippi or Alabama- we’re looking at you Roy Moore).

WaPo reminds us that Gosar  recently suggested that the rally was “created by the left” and carried out by an “Obama sympathizer.” During an interview with Vice the congressman seemed to be as “off the rails” as the delusional Cheeto-in-Chief.

Don’t listen to me. Hit the links and read how whacko this guy is.

Please drain the swamp!

The great and glorious reality TV-star, serial con-artist, business failure, and bully President Donald J Trump ran a campaign promising a new way of government, bring in the best and brightest, drain the swamp…

Hold on, I know you’ll be shocked, he lied. He’s not draining. He’s not got sufficient insight to know that he’s just changing nasty swamp water for different nasty swamp water. Let’s take a look at the most recent public display of governmental hubris.

Tom Price. This millionaire, doctor-turned-politician, is a poster-child for all of the critters in the swamp that need to be removed. Simultaneously, he’s a poster child for much of what’s wrong with modern medicine (but that a different column). Price began treating the military as his personal charter fleet and also began using private charter aircraft to get himself and his wife around. Fortunately he resigned before he heard POTUS say “you’re fired.” Trump seemed less concerned over the actual abuses (and ongoing swamp-like behavior) than the appearance.

See here, here, here, here, and here.

If you can’t drain, dissemble.

It’s almost cliche now to note that POTUS is minimally competent, that he lacks direction, that he’s generally a fool and buffoon. But this week has been spectacularly bed. At a time when there’s massive devastation to US territories from monumental storms he’s more concerned with:

  1. excoriating professional athletes (not sure why this should be governmental let alone a presidential concern)
  2. engaging in an ongoing Tweet war with with a 3rd-world despot who is just another intellectual pigmy (ironically Kim and Trump seem to be emotionally and intellectually made for each other).
  3. and taking cheap shots are local government affected by storms.

I know we all keep hoping for some form of presidential behavior from POTUS. But I think we’re all just going to be disappointed.

Jeff Payne

If that name sounds familiar, it should. He’s an arrogant prick who’s the reason why everyone should be very afraid of the police. But he’s not just arrogant, he’s stupid. He threatened and then arrested a nurse, Alex Wubbels (nee Shaffer), at a a Salt Lake City, UT hospital.

The essence of the incident is that PAYNE wanted blood from a patient for an alcohol level. Wubbels told him no (see also here). Wubbels was right. Taking the blood without a warrant is illegal.

PAYNE is apparently too stupid to know that the warrantless procurement of the blood would be inadmissible in any legal proceeding. Or, worse, maybe he’s not stupid he’s just a fascist who thinks the rules don’t apply to him. PAYNE insisted and threatened Wubbels despite being informed by a hospital attorney that he was making an unlawful demand.

Wubbels was arrested and promptly released. We should all be afraid of “police” like PAYNE. Everyone in Salt Lake City should be pressing for his prosecution.

Tom Price- frequent flyer

POTUS campaigned with a promise to “drain the swamp.” We all knew it was more hot air from a pathological liar with tiny little fingers and the only drainage would be from his genitals. It appears that POTUS has instead been replacing the swamp water.

Tom Price is above commercial air travel. Price thinks he’s still a doctor and it’s OK to jet around and make unnecessary appearances at worthless meetings. No doubt he’s also making the connections he’ll need when it all melts down and he’s forced to find a “real” job.

POTUS Explained

Sort of. A recent post titled:

The President of Blank Sucking Nullity

by David Roth over at the Baffler is a great read. It’s a very nice prelude to other reports that Trump has realized that people actually hate him. Thin-skinned, short-finger, self-centered bullies, like POTUS do value the adoration of others. But it’s rarely enough to cause meaningful change from his basic pathologic behavior.
