You Bet You Want Fries With That!

This important article from the LATimes delighted me this week, and the subsequent argument on Twitter was even better. It seems everyone in Los Angeles (and probably the world!) has an opinion on French Fries. I bet you guys do, too. In the comments, please, #2 lead pencils only.

It should be noted that the Tronc-free, lemon-scented, improved and revitalized L.A. Times is bringing back a printed Food Section to the paper. What a way to kick it off! I only wish Pulitzer Prize winning Jonathan Gold were still alive to be part of it.

In related fried news, Rep. Walter Jones Jr., known for ‘freedom fries’ and Iraq war reversal, dies at 76.

Saddle-Up Another Goat For Bill Weld, #NeverTrumpers!

Push-off!

This one is really interesting, perhaps important: former (Libertarian now Republican) Massachusetts governor Bill Weld is going to challenge Comrade Trump for the GOP nomination.


“I hope to see the Republican Party assume once again the mantle of being the party of Lincoln. It upsets me that our energies as a society are being sapped by the President’s culture of divisiveness in Washington,” he said Friday in New Hampshire, adding later, “Because of the many concerns I’ve talked about today, I’ve established an exploratory committee … as a Republican in the 2020 election.”


In the 2016 Goat Rodeo, Weld ran as VP on Gary Johnson’s libertarian ticket.

During that chock-full-of-nutz campaign, Weld told everyone why they should vote for Hillary Clinton, which makes me wonder if history is gonna repeat itself again. (see what I did there?) Weld could get a pretty well-covered media platform during the primary for his critique of Prznint Stupid.

No, I don’t think that Weld can win the nomination, especially now that the Russian Usurper has annexed the RNC as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Trump Crime Family’s Grift, Inc., but it does mean that Comrade Trump doesn’t get to turn the Oval Office into a hidey-hole during much of the 2020 Goat Rodeo.

Vikings and Beekeepers

It also means that the so-called #NeverTrumpers (whom you should #NeverTrust) now have a candidate that they can rally behind, instead of reluctantly supporting either Trump or the eventual Dim nominee, at least for a while. Our old pal E-Squared just got pwned.

Mueller Connects the Dotard, Er, Dots

The Babadook or Roger Stone?

Noted Babadook cosplay enthusiast and general rat-eff’er Roger Stone is, to coin a phrase, totally eff’ed in the dark:


Prosecutors said for the first time that they have evidence of Roger Stone communicating with WikiLeaks, according to a new court filing from special counsel prosecutors.

“During its investigation of the Russian hack of the Democrats, “the government obtained and executed dozens of search warrants on various accounts used to facilitate the transfer of stolen documents for release, as well as to discuss the timing and promotion of their release,” the prosecutors wrote Friday to a federal judge.

“Several of those search warrants were executed on accounts that contained Stone’s communications with Guccifer 2.0 and with Organization 1,” which is WikiLeaks.”


You may recall that Stone insisted that he did not have direct contact with Wikileaks, even swearing to that before Congress, even though he had an uncanny ability to predict the things that Wikileaks was about to release. We suspected at the time his masterful use of the Magic Ouija Board.

The evidence that the Russian Usurper’s 2016 Goat Rodeo campaign and the Russians conspired to throw the 2016 election just became YUGE. The only question that remains is whether or not the President knew about it.

Haha, I jest. Of course he did. Who else could have ordered the Campaign Manager Steve Bannon to ask Roger Stone to ask WikiLeaks? It’s only a matter of time.

Bob Mueller be like…

Family Curse Follows Area Family

Trump Crime Family: The Next Generation

NYTimes:


“President Donald Trump’s company is scrapping plans for two new hotel chains announced two years ago, casting blame in part on a hostile political environment.

“The Trump Organization said Thursday that it will no longer try to open hotels under its Scion and American Idea brands catering to budget and mid-priced travelers, a departure from its focus on luxury hotels. The announcement comes as the company has posted losses at a few of its golf properties, and brand experts say it has lost some of its appeal.”


So what went wrong?

NYTimes, again:


“We live in a climate where everything will be used against us, whether by the fake news or by Democrats who are only interested in presidential harassment and wasting everyone’s time, barraging us with nonsense letters. We already have the greatest properties in the world, and if we have to slow down our growth for the time being, we are happy to do it.”


But I thought the whole point of these hotels was that they would be unbranded, and wouldn’t have the curse of the family name! I mean Squiggy and Lenny even grew scruffy beards to prove how cool and hip these new joints would be, and Lenny even bought a sweet new ride to park out front so everyone would know how fresh the place is:
