Wecome to Day 16 of the Shutdown/Lockout

Comrad Stupid Signs Papers As Empty As His Head

There’s really nothing more to say or progress to report than today the Shutdown is now the third longest in US history, and we are well into the third week.

Not paying bills is Comrade Stupid’s core competency.

BOTH SIDES!!1! – Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie) morning email thingie goes there:

HERE’S THE REALITY: Neither side is going to convince the other of their position. The best either side can hope for is that they find a way that everyone saves face. According to people in the room, that is not close to happening right now.

Yeah, so everyone is equally wrong. Jeebus, the razorblade is sticking out of that apple.

And so in not-unrelated news, when Commander Bunnypants said that he was thinking about declaring a national emergency and ordering the military to build the Tortilla Curtain, Kevin Sweeney (the Pentagon Chief of Staff) resigned abruptly:

“‘I’ve decided the time is right to return to the private sector. It has been an honor to serve again alongside the men and women of the Department of Defense,’ Sweeney said in a short statement posted on the Department of Defense website late Saturday night.

    Very hard to see how this ends. Trump cares only about the views of his base, and even if they start to suffer from the shutdown, it will take a long time before they decide that’s more important than the wall, and longer still for Trump to recognize that they feel that way. If he seriously doesn’t care about the damage this is doing, it might be that this drags on all the way until the impeachment or however he’s eventually removed.

    This shutdown is the predictable result, when a narcissistic, spoiled rich kid occupies the Oval Office. He throws a screaming , kicking tantrum when he doesn’t get his way. Have his office staff removed all possible things he could throw at his TV screen?

    Oh, but there has been progress. Very encouraging progress at that.

    President Art of the Deal has negotiated with himself to offer to build a fence rather than a wall. And speaker Pelosi has instituted a PayGo policy, effectively cutting off the MHSG’s allowance.

    In the end it’s going to be interesting to see how 45 tries to make his spanking look like a victory parade.

      Rather than calling it a “back-down,” they’re terming it a “compromise,”
      so Suckface doesn’t throw a hissy fit, for not getting what he demanded.
      Terminology is everything.

      And on to the beaded curtain. Maybe eventually they can talk him down to an ornamental shrubbery. Nih!

        I saw a news clip recently that said that Canada has begun work on their own version of The Wall, to keep out undesirables coming up from south of them. It’s basically just a privacy hedge, but you know how polite those Canadians are.

        I’m surprised that cacti wasn’t among the choices. They can be VERY, painful. Cheap, too, I imagine. Not too much water necessary, also, too.

    Of course FatNixon can relate to people not having money to pay their bills. He had to learn something from his multiple bankruptcies.

    The shutdown is not just about the wall. I think it is also a form of denial and temper tantrum over his losing the House. He can’t handle the idea that he doesn’t hold all the cards now, and is shitting himself. That’s what all his profanity-laced rants about impeachment at the brginning of shutdown meetings is about.

    He’s a terrified asshole, acting out.

      I dunno, I think he believes he has a winning hand because he honestly doesn’t care if the government ever opens again.

      If at some point Possum Hollar gets agitated about it, he may try to negotiate, but not a thing until then, methinks. If Social Security checks stop, he’s gonna hear about it from them.

      It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
