It’s over, fucko. And Pelosi is coming for you.

It’s Friday, and let’s hope we can get through the weekend without another national crisis.

Political Crap

I’ve written some thoughts about what happened on Wednesday that I’m going to publish shortly. In the meantime, some developments in this crazy time we’re living through:

President Sedition — literally now — has finally FINALLY conceded. And it only took a failed coup and five Americans dying! I strongly suspect he did this under duress, possibly a threat by Vice President Sour Cream, Mitch McConnell, and certain cabinet members that they would 25th amendment his ass if he didn’t.

His lunatic followers aren’t taking it well.

He’s also not going to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration. I am shocked. This is my shocked face.

He’s also looking into pardoning himself.

Oh, and Facebook and Instagram have told President Twatter to fuck off forever. (But he’s back on Twitter, as you can tell from above.)

And the Wall Street Journal editorial board has demanded that he resign. (The Wall Street Journal!)

The Kraken is getting sued by Dominion and Senator Josh Hawley has lost his book deal at Simon and Schuster after encouraging an insurrection. He is decrying this as “Orwellian” when in reality it’s just called “capitalism.”

Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi is NOT FUCKING AROUND. She asked Vice President Duncan Hines Creamy Vanilla Frosting to deploy the 25th Amendment, threatening that they will impeach his orange ass again if he didn’t do it. (Vice President Cottage Cheese is resisting because he’s a fucking coward.) They could impeach him again next week.

Madam Speaker also called Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and discussed what can be done to prevent President Lunatic from using the nuclear codes in his next few remaining days in office. GREAT TIMES WE’RE LIVING IN, GUYS!

Greg Daniels keeps toying with The Office fans’ emotions.

Letterkenny fan? Here’s a ranking of the characters — ALL of the characters. I don’t know that I agree with it (the other hockey players above Jonesy and Reilly? Are you crazy?) but it’s comprehensive. Also, this is just a great quote:

“When I told a friend I’d been assigned an extensive column on Letterkenny, he spent the following weekend watching the first five seasons and reported back: ‘I don’t know what my own thoughts sound like anymore.’”

Can confirm.

I keep seeing stories about this Danish children’s series about a dude with a super-long penis, so I guess I should share it with you.

Hilaria Baldwin has lost her deal with Cuties Bay Care over the thing where she pretended to be Spanish for no good Goddamned reason. Pity.
