Twumpism in Smithereens

It just gets gooder and gooder from here on out. If it got any better, we’d have to cut it in half and share it. A Fulton County Judge has ordered Lindsey Graham to testify in Twump’s Georgia voting interference case. Graham had tried to escape the noose by claiming he was a legislator in transit and could not be waylaid or forced to testify if he’s needed in Washington. Not surprisingly, that didn’t fly with the judge.

So, Lindsey will be forced to testify about calls he made to Georgia politicians. Sniffing around in the same type of voter fraud crimes that Twump is in the soup over. What they want to know is really simple. Did Lindsey act on his own behalf when he suggested voter fraud, or was he asking on behalf of someone else? Think carefully, this is the big one, the big, big question.

One engine is out, and a wing is on fire as the ground spins ever closer and closer. Do you bail out now or stay with the ship? While there is no good answer, you can try and save yourself and bail out and leave them to their fate. The plane is going to crash either way, but even jumping out there’s no guarantee a parachute will work this close to the ground. Lindsey is facing a hard choice and if his prior behavior hadn’t painted him as a weasel in the insurrection camp his testimony certainly will.

Caught red handed like a rat in a trap. Lindsey can testify that the voter interference scheme was all his idea and open himself up to prosecution. Or, he can say Twump put him up to it and risk Twump’s ire as well as prosecution.

But you know, little Jackie Paper doesn’t go down to the lane to play much anymore. So, many of the scales have begun to fall from Puff the Magic Dragon in reruns. Their destinations keep getting further and further away and more remote. And the rooms keep getting get smaller and smaller, until finally Twump has reached the ends of the Earth. “Hey look! I can see Russia from my spite campaign venue.”

And though the campaign stops, and venues seem without reason. Twump has come here to Alaska to spite Lisa Murkowski. She wasn’t loyal to the Fuhrer, so now, the Twump monster has come to do her in. Just like an episode of World Championship Wrestling or The Dukes of Hazard. The cult has to have heroes and villains too, just like in the real world.

Twump campaigning in rural Georgia, rural Arizona and now Alaska. Guam get ready, you could be next!

Twump as usual, congratulated himself for all the things, he claims he didn’t get enough credit for especially the Covid vaccine. But you can’t say that word “vaccine” around the Trumpanzis. It sets them off into a frenzy. “Boo, Vaccines bad! Disease good! More cattle wormer! I saw the light…and shoved up my ass! That’s why I’m here today! That 120 watt GE bulb saved my life. ” If Twump had said vaccine three times fast, they would have trashed the place.

But it was like that scene from “2001, A Space Odyssey” where they’re unplugging Hal’s memory bank. The old orange duffer is clearly slowing down appreciably. (Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer truuuue.) He repeatedly called Elon Musk, Leon Musk. He said that he disliked ranked choice voting but without it, Sarah Palin would already have been eliminated.

He seemed to have trouble finding and pronouncing certain words. He knew all the touch stones; he knew how to get the crowd off. But whatever it is, it’s clearly beginning to show. The pauses are longer now between words. Like he’s digging for them and trying to find them somewhere when the teleprompter is right there in front of him, but it’s somehow in a foreign tongue.

Grand pa insists that someone is stealing his remote control and leaving it in the bathroom. Will Twump run out of brain calls before the curtain falls? Or will Twump not make it off to obscurity and consciousness absenteeism before the brain pudding manages to set up hard?

Or is it all contrived, so that when Twump finally faces judgment. He will be found incompetent to stand trial? I think Twump could probably take a run at that one now. Because he is all alone now and isolated. When he talks about his Administration, he only talks about himself as Twump has ejected them all.

They are all gone, Mike Pence or Mike Flynn. Pat Cipollone or Jared Kushner, Rudy Giuliani or the Kraken all detached. Bill Barr is under subpoena to testify at the upcoming billion-dollar lawsuit against Faux News. You can forget about him too, Twump doesn’t know him anymore either.

It’s just him and what’s her name now. That foreign chick who always looks pissed off. She’s had so much plastic surgery it says “Hasbro” under her hairline. Even the kids don’t come around to visit anymore, now that’s there is nothing left for them to grift. They’ve milked Elsie dry and now, it’s every spawn for him or herself.

Twump’s Senate pick in Alasaka is in the lead, while his Sarah Palin pick, like John McCain’s before him is a near certain loser. And what it means is that Twump’s power is fast waning. Maybe his endorsement helps and maybe not, even today. What will it mean in two more years? But he can still draw a crowd in …Alaska. Those 3 Alaska electoral votes are safe in his hands. Here in Arizona, all the Republicans fell for Twump’s big lie and now that it’s been exposed as a fraud, they are stuck with it until November.

Running as cultist in a cult, running against reality, reality is for suckers! Never mind the facts, Fight voter fraud – Vote Republican! Protect our elections, vote Republican! Piling up absurdity upon absurdity until it’s Twumpism in smithereens, fiddling through the wreckage.

“The greedy, profit-seeking exploiter cannot see beyond the end of his nose. He can see a chance for an “opening”; he is cunning enough to know what graft is and where it is, and how it can be secured, but vision he has none-not the slightest. He knows nothing of the great throbbing world that spreads out in all directions. He has no capacity for literature; no appreciation of art; no soul for beauty. That is the penalty the parasites pay for the violation of the laws of life.”
