We only have to get through 50 more days of this living nightmare.


Political Crap

Additionally, we are 50 days away from me writing about politics on this blog every goddamned day.

But until January 20, 2021, we are still dealing with President Crayon-eater’s nonsense. He’s still trying to coup, but his paths are narrowing further and further. As of yesterday, all six of the crucial states that cemented Biden’s win certified their votes:

And in perhaps President Still a Loser’s most humiliating moment during this whole fucking ordeal, Arizona’s Republican Governor, Doug Ducey, silenced an incoming call from the White House while he was in the middle of certifying Biden’s win. This is delicious:

With the votes now certified, there are only a few paths left for the Grifter-in-Chief to try to steal this election: 1. take his case to the Supreme Court (which note: they have not as of this writing taken this case to the Supreme Court yet), 2. hope that multiple Republican State Legislatures go rogue and reverse their states’ elections and assign electors themselves or 3. pray that thirty-seven (37!) faithless electors change their vote from Biden to President Illegitimate.

The only option above that has a sliver of a chance of happening is the campaign taking their case to the Supreme Court — but that does not guarantee victory. A bunch of conservative judges — some President Cheetostain’s own appointees — have laughed case after case out of court because the campaign is not producing any evidence of fraud. BECAUSE IT DOES NOT EXIST.

In the meantime, President Chaos continues to make things worse for the Republicans in the Georgia Senate runoff election.

But it’s not only the Georgian Republicans that President Disorder is screwing over: in a sign that he might actually be realizing the exit door is looming, he is now threatening to launch his 2024 campaign on Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day. LOL, OK, DO IT. Sure, it’s a petty move and it signals that this asshole will try to be a shadow President during Biden’s entire term, but at the same time, this completely kneecaps any up-and-coming GOPers ambitions to run in 2024. I’M HERE FOR IT.

And the other sign that we’re nearing the finale of all this bullshittery? Rudy has discussed a possible pardon with President Felon.

Hang tight, we’re almost done.


Oh, it’s just Kevin Hart calling his 15-year-old daughter a “ho” in a comedy special and then getting all defensive when people called him out on it and then comparing himself to Oprah and Obama while defending the likes of Bill Cosby.

See, if “canceling” were actually a thing — which it is not — we would not be talking about this right now because Kevin Hart would not have a Netflix special in which he could spew misogynistic bullshit and he would not be promoting said special on popular podcasts because he would have been “canceled” after all the homophobic bullshit he previously spewed. But he wasn’t and here we are.

Joss Whedon was set to co-write and direct the HBO sci-fi series, The Nevers, but he abruptly left the series last week with no explanation. Rumors are flying around.

Producer David Guillod is being sued by a woman who claims he sexually assaulted her back in high school.

Vanderbilt University’s Sarah Fuller became the first woman to play in a Power 5 football game on Saturday, and I’m not going to post all the horrific misogynistic things that were written about her because this is a positive story and I’m not going to allow people’s hate taint it, goddammit.

I know it’s a lot to ask an octogenarian to be sensitive to trans issues — it apparently is difficult to ask people my own age to not be jackasses about it — but even so, I’m still disappointed in John Cleese.

Laverne Cox was attacked in a Los Angeles park for being trans. So keep making those jokes, assholes.

So, Rosario Dawson made her debut on The Mandalorian, which brought up a year-old accusation that she and her family attacked a trans man, claims that have been dismissed and which she addressed in a Vanity Fair interview.

Elliot Page, formerly known as Ellen Page, has come out as a transgender non-binary person.

Johnny Depp is still a wife-beater.

Even the Animaniacs have become a little more conscientious.

Going Viral

Hey, Sunday was our biggest travel day since the pandemic began. 1.2 million people went through airports on that day, so brace yourselves.

But at least we have the vaccine to look forward to, right? Well, yes, but the problem is President Not My Problem is still in the White House for seven more weeks, and as of now, he plans to make the distribution of the vaccine the states’ problem. This is hardly surprising as this has been the administration’s attitude towards the pandemic the entire time: let the states deal with it. Worked out great, so far.

But in good news: Dr. Scott Atlas, the White House task force monster member who advocated for herd immunity, has resigned.

The White House is planning multiple holiday parties. What could go wrong?

True story: last month — LAST MONTH — some fucking idiots decided to host a “swingers festival” in New Orleans, and 250 fucking idiots attended. Now 41 fucking idiots have tested positive and the fucking idiots who organized it have some regrets. I NEVER WANT TO HEAR ANOTHER GODDAMNED POLITICIAN TELL ME THAT WE HAVE TO RELY ON PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY BECAUSE THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS WE ARE ALL A BUNCH OF FUCKING IDIOTS WHO WILL DO THE FUCKING IDIOTIC THING GIVEN HALF A FUCKING CHANCE.

And then there is this: Los Angeles was going to shut down a testing site for a day so that a She’s All That remake starring a TikTok star could shoot there, but then people were understandably pissed, so they had to pull the filming permit. We are an incredibly stupid species.

Hong Kong Disneyland is closing for a while.

Scenes from a Marriage had to suspend production because of two positive tests on set.

Queen Sono is the latest Netflix show that had been renewed that is now canceled because of the pandemic.

All Other TV News

So, I watched The Undoing and finally caught up with the finale last night, and personally my reaction is: WOOF. Still, I could make an argument for why it worked (but I won’t). If you watched — and based on the ratings, a lot of you did — and still have questions (Grace’s flashbacks? That kiss?), I recommend this article. But it’s spoiler-HEAVY so tread carefully with all those links.

This 1989 This Old House segment on the house of the future is … creepily accurate:

Showtime has added a Pluto TV channel that will make 250 hours of their programming free in an attempt to lure new subscribers.

Someone absolutely needs to make this fake Quibi show, and I happen to know a Real Housewives of New York tertiary character who should be cast immediately.

How Jordan Klepper and his beard became a sex symbol. Because 2020, man.

Y’all need to be nicer to Millie Bobby Brown, you monsters.

David Boreanaz is wrong.
