Like me, are you suffering from a malady called Russian overdose? (In my case, it’s not vodka!) Did you see Sean Spicer was caught with a bottle of Russian dressing the other day! I’m so sick and tired of being sick and tired about news stories concerning Russia. Good God, every day the news channels, particularly the cable news networks, spend the day spewing out a steady stream of Russian collusion news stories about somebody, anybody, in the Trump administration. The radio talk shows opine about it too, non-stop. Just about the time you think it has finally died down, out slips another one, manufactured and leaked from somewhere deep in the bowels of the cesspool that is Washington DC. I know more about Putin now than I do three of my four kids.
One could expect this from the Communist News Network, formerly known as CNN. CNN has to beat it to death, it bet heavily on Clinton, lost, and now is trying to justify their existence. They and their cronies (MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC) spew a steady stream of Trump’s alleged collusion with the Russians to steal Hillary’s coronation, while totally overlooking Bill and Hillary’s exploits. FOX is every bit as guilty at running ad nauseum with the Russian theme, although they cover what the others are saying, then add their own interpretation of why the others are probably wrong. The result – total saturation…to the point that nobody outside of Washington DC and New York cares anymore. This is how bad it has gotten - I’m a news/political junkie and I don’t care anymore! Phil Collins song, “I Don’t Care Anymore” runs through my head whenever Russia comes up. Recall the refrain:
“You know I don't care anymore!
Don't care no more! No more, no more, no more
Don't care, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more
No more, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more.”
For those of you who believe Russia somehow affected our election, do you realize it has become so convoluted that there will be nothing come from it anyway? There usually isn’t with these types of conspiracies. It’s all become nervous energy – doing absolutely nothing useful – so why continue to waste interest? I say this knowing full well my words are written here in stone, totally fearless of something slipping out later. Actually, I know there will be something come out later, even after the current sensational and salacious scandal involving Trump Jr and some Russian bimbo dies down, that will put the news networks back in a frenzy. It’s probably Tiffany Trump’s turn in the barrel next – not much has been said about her yet. After that, they will have to resort to in-laws.
Democratic Congressman will hold more sanctimonious hearings and make threats, and the in-majority Republican Congressman will do nothing, terrified that something will backfire on them and affect their cushy jobs. Oh, Gowdy will put the fear of God in everyone, but in the end, nothing will come of his threats.
The result is absolutely nothing is getting done in Congress that is worth squat. And we are paying dearly for this inaction - Obamacare reform (or better yet – repeal), personal income taxes, corporate taxes, infrastructure, and illegal immigration – all items we voted for Trump to change, are going disregarded. For the record, I don't understand why Trump and the GOP don't just let Obamacare implode on its own, as it will do shortly. Why touch a dead skunk?
While I am on this tirade, let it be known that I personally am weary of watching those old dinosaurs in Congress getting their mugs on television, rambling on about the evils of what they hallucinate is a Trump-Putin tag-team. In a sane world, people like Pelosi and Waters would be in an insane asylum, McCain and Feinstein would be sitting in wheel chair in the dank hallways of some retirement home drooling on their shirt, the Clinton's would be in a jail cell (together if there is a God), and Durbin, Graham and Schumer would be getting beat up in an alley every day just for being aggravating whiny twat-waffles.
Did you notice that none of these Congressional clowns can give a speech without a little clique surrounding them, staring at the back of the speakers head, smug look on their face, and nodding their heads in unison, as if they are a collection of bobble-heads in the bed of an old pick-up driving traveling across a pot-hole ridden Interstate 80? The spokespersons are evidently so insecure in their ramblings they have to have a small posse of pinheads and lapdogs standing next to them.
Are you also as exhausted by these never-ending Senate hearings? Every joker on those panels, while calling each other “honorable” and “esteemed,” unleashes a torrent on the evils of the other party, pontificating interminably while reading like 3rd-graders from scripts that some young intern wrote for them. It’s all made-for-TV drama for the benefit of the news networks and getting absolutely nothing done in the process. There is nothing honorable or esteemed about the whole process, folks. In fact, it’s all quite reprehensible.
You realize this is all by design, don’t you? It’s a way to derail the Trump Train from draining the swamp.
