There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s Twitler’s White House

Steve Bannon. Do I need to say more? Hell, no! Because I can sing instead!!

To the tune of If I Only Had a Brain by Harold Arlen (music) and E.Y. Harburg (lyrics):

🎼 If my lips move, then I’m lyin’
Or I’m Holocaust denyin’,
Don’t care if that’s profane,
Because hour by hour,
I’m amassing so much power,
All of D.C.’s my domain.♫

The Terror of Their Ways

Shoutout to our newest Raisinette, EPIC GOP Fail, whom you can follow on Twitter, as I do. EPIC tweeted that we needed a new graphic to measure the new GOP crazy. I was inspired, because all Raisinettes know that I never shirk my duty when called to do the public a service. Behold, the new Terror Alert Color Coded System, just like the old one that has kept us so safe.

Angry Turds

From The New York Times, The Opinion Pages:

David Brooks gave St. Ronald Reagan a tongue bath before he got to this:

The mood of the party is so different today. Donald Trump expressed the party’s new mood to David Muir of ABC, when asked about his decision to suspend immigration from some Muslim countries: “The world is a mess. The world is as angry as it gets. What, you think this is going to cause a little more anger? The world is an angry place.”

Someone who used the name El Jamon from New York posted this response. I wish I knew who he was so I could give him a giant hug:

I am not a wealthy man. According to Donald Trump, I would be a loser. I changed diapers. I am an attentive, nurturing father. I built a modest business. I am devoted to my spouse. We’ve been through thick and thin, better or worse and we still remain devoted and deeply in love. Our home is modest. Our car is not luxurious. I served my country and paid for college myself, without ever taking a loan or dime from my parents. And I am happy because I am grateful. Every single day, I am grateful for this life, better or worse, rich or poor. I’m even grateful for the trials and struggles I’ve had. I’m grateful for the wisdom life’s difficulties and set backs have provided. The man in the gilded tower is not grateful.

(Emphasis mine)

Checks & Balances? The checks all bounced, and they’re all unbalanced!

From Newsweek:

One of the great questions of Donald Trump’s presidency is how well he’ll get along with House Speaker Paul Ryan and more traditional conservatives. If the president’s meeting with congressional Republicans in Philadelphia on Thursday is any indication, the answer is they’ll do very well.

One of my sources on the inside at the retreat sent me a picture of the  Commander In Chief  Demander-and-Thief and what seems to be (from this picture) the Streaker of the House.

These Boots Were Made for Talking

From POLITICO:

Sen. Marco Rubio put aside serious reservations about Rex Tillerson and announced Monday he’ll back the former ExxonMobil chief for secretary of state, effectively clinching his confirmation.

The support of the Florida Republican means Tillerson will clear a Monday evening in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee instead of facing an embarrassing “unfavorable” verdict by the panel. Rubio’s decision likely foreshadows unanimous GOP support for Tillerson, who had made some Republicans nervous about his closeness to Russian President Vladimir Putin and reluctance to criticize Putin’s actions during his confirmation hearing.

Raisin’ Hell

From philly.com:

It lacks whiskers, tail, and claws, but bristles with ambition and bite:

The woolen, two-cat-ear headgear has fast become the feline symbol of feminine protest for thousands headed to the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday. Project leaders envision a sea of pink hats as the perfect way to tweak President-elect Donald Trump over his infamous remark about grabbing women by their . . . you know what.
