Spaghetti In A Hot Dog Bun

Everything was looking great for a nice summer picnic with Barack Obama and his friends, the Iranian Diplomats. The whether was beautiful, the smell of fresh cut grass in the air, the promise of beautiful fireworks at sunset. Everyone was so excited that they couldn't wait for the wonderful day of the picnic to get there. Barack promised to bring the hot dogs, and asked his Iranian friends if they would bring the buns. They agreed, and the cookout was on!


As the day of the cookout grew closer, the Iranians got more and more excited about the event. They could hardly contain themselves. So excited were they that a few of them almost RSVPed! What a great summertime picnic this was going to be.

And then, the unimaginable happened. First, the Iranian President won his re-election in a landslide. Then, the Iranian people claimed that the whole thing was a fraud. They began to make such a scene that the President of Iran had to tell them they were being bad and send them to their rooms. Not wanting to mess up his picnic, Barack was very cautious in how he handled the situation. "You're not being very nice", he told the President. But still, the situation got worse. 

Finally, Barack was forced to take a really firm stance. "If you don't start being nice," he told the Iranian President, "your friends can't come to my party anymore." The Iranian President didn't care, because he wasn't invited anyway. So he just kept on being bad. Finally, Barack took the strong and decisive action that nobody thought would ever come. "No hot dogs for you" he told his Iranian friends.

I wish this story had a happy ending, but it doesn't. The Iranian President just kept on being a Mr. Meanypants. Barack was forced to sit in the park by himself with a bunch of hot dogs and no buns. And those poor Iranian Diplomats, having pleanty of buns but no hot dogs, spent their 4th of July alone in their offices eating Spaghetti In A Hot Dog Bun.


Hot off the press.

  • Watered Down Travel Ban

    Watered Down Travel Ban

    I have some friends and family who supported President Trump from early on in the process. From time to time they will ask me when I will admit that I was wrong about him. "If Trump does x... If Trump gets y... If Trump supports a policy that results in z... will you admit that you were wrong?" My answer is always "no", because I wasn't wrong. To be clear, I could be wrong in practical application, but that isn't what an election is about. Elections are about theory and speculation and, generally speaking about judging records. Trump had no record to speak of, and his history of stances on issues was all over the map. I opposed his candidacy for several major reasons, all of which are proven valid in this single issue we now refer to as the "travel ban". Here were my reasons.

  • Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    If you're not familiar with Justice with Judge Jeanine, it is a show on the FOX News Network starring Jeanine Pirro. She is known for her over-the-top rants where she serves up gobs of fresh red meat for her largely hard right wing audience. While it's not unusual for her to be a little fast and loose with the facts, she has been known to occasionally return from the break with a correction from her producers. Last night, however, there was no such correction to an outright lie she told on the show, and the matter being discussed should have (at the very least) contained a disclaimer from the host. I would cut her some slack, but as a former prosecutor and judge, she should be well aware of what proper protocol should have been here.

  • Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    It's not cute anymore, Republicans. The President of the United States is completely detached from reality, and you can't fix that. You can't cover it up, you can't explain it away, and let me make this as clear as I possibly can for you. You cannot possibly undo the damage you are doing to the party brand by trying to pretend this man is anything other than completely unhinged. I'm watching Sean Hannity borrow guests from the Alex Jones show in an attempt to bolster Trump's conspiratorial claims. I'm seeing relatively mainstream conservatives make themselves look like the crazed fringes of the paranoid right wing. Don't believe me? Look at this.
