There isn’t much in the news this Super Sunday that is holding my attention that we have not already covered in our usual fashion, but I will note that my cold is retreating, and the morning-after effects of Nyquil chugging are not as dramatic as one might think.
Anyway, I will report that I had a stupid epiphany last night in my Nyquil fever, while regaling the Village idiot yutes on Twitter on the importance of Civics.
Anyway back to the list of succession to the preznintcy should the Russian Usurper be removed from office (Cthulhu willing):
- Preznint Comrade
- Vice Preznint Pence (though with Pence the vice is purely the boring kind)
- Speaker of the House Zombie-Eyed Granny-Starver
- President pro tempore of the United States Senate Orrin Hatch
Now, you might be wondering where I found my joy in that list, and I don’t blame you. The only way that Comrade Stupid is yanked, barnacle-like, from the White House is if Congress and the Senate flip to the Dims in 2018, which means that ZEGS is no longer the Speaker. Also/too: Orrin is retiring, so he will no longer be #4. (But #4 continues to fall to a ghoul’s gallery of Republicans for as far as the eye can see: Thad Cochran, Chuck Grassley, amply be-chinned Mitch, Richard Shelby, Grandpa Walnuts, DiFi)
And again, so what, you say if the odious termite buffett gets installed, what does it matter?
I got bupkis. But I also wonder if Pence might be caught up in the collusion or obstruction net. I strangely would not be surprised if that was the case.
Of course, Wingnuttia uber alles would scream that it was a coup and take up arms if Nancy Pelosi suddenly became Preznint.
