"Did he 'call for bipartisanship'? Of course he did, the way a carny barker calls for suckers."

From Charlie Pierce: 

Did he call for “unity”? Of course he did, the way a tent-show preacher howls for Jesus with a statue bleeding glycerine from its eyes. Are we supposed to pretend that we believe him, that we have faith in his desire to lead the entire nation, that he won’t be acting like a jackass on Twitter again by Valentine’s Day? Are we supposed to compliment the White House medical staff for finally getting the dosage right? How much pretending can we do before the national psyche, bloated on pretense, finally collapses of its own weight? How big a crock can be fashioned out of the ruins of the American experiment?

  1. I'm not gonna bother logging in to F**KBOOK to respond to the SOTU whine-fest from "Charlie Pierce". (I don't know for sure, but I'm assuming *this* "Charlie Pierce" is the same guy I've enjoyed hearing on "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!", on NPR. Just sayin'....) Reading only for *style*, it's a well-written and entertaining piece. *BUT*, reading for *content*, I can only shake my head in mild disgust. Look, I'm a registered Independent voter, and I proudly voted for Trump as the lesser of 2 evils. At least Trump isn't Obama part 2, which is what the Hilda-Beast woulda' been. Charlie Pierces' screed is simply the extreme libtard knee-jerk to balance the Trump-tard. Over-the-top fear mongering, and using illegal immigrants as political pawns and talking points, which is exactly what the repugs do, too. Why give MS-13 MORE publicity? MS-13 is a scourge, and they are domestic terrorists when the arrive in the U.S. They're international terrorists anywhere else. And the U.S. illegal drug market is only PART of what creates and sustains them. There's something more "Central American", more "Hispanic/Latino", which makes them the murderous thugs which they are. Even poverty only explains them just so far. But Pierce won't dare go there, because that ground is off-limits to libtards. Trump called for "bipartisan" "unity", but Pierce jumps right off into divisiveness. Pierce *HATES* Trump so much, that he becomes a Demmie-Trump himself. Pierce is a HATER. I for one American, am SICK and FUCKING TIRED of lib-tards, conserva-tards, Demo-crappers *AND* Repug-thugs. And for Pierce to add the snarky line about the "white house doc getting the pills right", is damned INSULTING to those poor disabled folks who suffer from the delusions of the pseudoscience drug racket and means of social control known as "psychiatry", or "21st Century Phrenology", in other words. Please, Charlie, STOP HATING TRUMP. At least try to begin to LOVE AMERICA MORE.
    (Much as I'd like to, I just don't know how to post/comment on F**KBOOK, which is all Esquire will allow. Will you *please* post this also, on the Esquire F**KBOOK page?)
    I continue to enjoy "Fear & Loathing", even if you're sometimes too "liberal" for my moderate tastes. But then, you probably think I'm a "conservative", or worse. Whatever. That's YOUR problem. I'm an AMERICAN, and that's EVERYBODY's problem! *LOL*
