Thanks for the memory
From ‘American Carnage’ first
Nothing could be worse
When Comrade Stupid tweeted
That nutty ‘covfefe’ verse
How lovely it was
Thanks, Scissorheads, for the memories of 2017. It may seem like an elegiac way to end 2017, but it has been that kind of year. We found the funny in funny places; we laughed because crying is too easy. Scissorheads are many things, but mostly a “tough room, tough room” as Rodney Dangerfield used to say.
We’re no one’s fools.
But here’s the good news: we made it through this rotten year, together, and with luck on our side (and an ace up our sleeves), we’ll make it through 2018. Hopefully the Fourth Reich will not. As I noted earlier today:
MAGA=Mueller Ain’t Going Away
I want to give a special shout-out to all the co-conspirators, but none more so that to Osirisopto. While I think MPS has always had a soul, Osirisopto proved to us that we have a heart. The nearly daily and certain weekly Activism posts were exceptional, and much needed. He herded all of us hep cats and kittens from passive spitballers to phone-crazed, marching activists. It was not easy and I cannot thank him enough. Thank you, O, for that memory.
GRS keep us knee-deep in tunes, and sometimes just having an ear worm to drown out the wails of the damned is exactly what is needed. I’m hoping that in 2018 GRS will continue to score our playlists as we fight the pontificating poltroons.
And we all need to tip our hats to Katie Schwartz, who showed us all how to fight for our rights, and still be funny doing it. There is no finer, tougher broad than our Schwartzie.
2018 is going to be a challenging year, and there is much work to be done. So let’s look back on 2017, be glad it is gone, but also be glad we have such good comrades in arms. How lovely it was!
Have fun tonight, and well-earned coffee tomorrow. The struggle continues.
