Venting is good when you’re in a safe space to do it. This website is mine. I am about to do some venting after this shitstorm of a news cycle.
Don’t mind me. I’ll be over here smashing the windows with an aluminum bat.
A Bosnian war criminal drank poison in court today and that was the most sane thing that happened in the news.
Right now I want to get laid, smoke some crack and punch a dog. Not all at once, obviously.
Question: what do Matt Lauer, Garrison Keillor and Geraldo Rivera have in common? For one thing, they all suck in the areas of their so-called expertise. For another thing, each of them have been credibly accused of some sort of impropriety with women. Matt Lauer and Garrison Keillor both lost their jobs today. Geraldo decided this was the hill he wanted to die on and defended Lauer, but then a clip emerged from the ’90s where Bette Midler told Barbara Walters that in the late ’70s Geraldo and his producer pushed her into a bathroom, forced her to sniff amyl nitrate poppers and groped her breasts.
Geraldo Rivera has been a pathetic wreck of a public figure for longer than I’ve been alive and when he finally croaks the people who can’t stand him won’t be bothered to celebrate.
Leeann Tweeden alleged that Sen. Al Franken groped and sexually harassed her on a USO tour in 2006. At first I thought it was bullshit ginned up to take everyone’s mind off the Roy Moore shit going on in Alabama. Then three other women alleged some impropriety. And he keeps apologizing and claiming he’ll do better. I don’t know what’s going on. I know that Rep. John Conyers is not apologizing. He’s defending himself over three allegations of sexual harassment and at least one settlement.
Sexual impropriety and abuse of power is not a partisan issue. Hypocrisy is caked on the walls of Congress like shit against the stalls of a freshman dorm bathroom. It’s like both parties are saying, “Look, what our guy did is not good but you should see what their guy did! That’s the real creep over there!”
To be fair, nearly every Senator on both sides of the aisle has condemned the actions of Roy Moore and say they believe his accusers. And yet, the outcome of Alabama’s special Senate election remains in doubt.
The biggest creep of them all is sitting in the White House going batshit crazy and tweeting like a madman. It’s hell to look at this crazy person and think he is the leader of the free world. He’s a star so he can do whatever he wants. He can grab women by the pussy. That’s fine, apparently.
Why is it the people who are in charge of making legislation are the least accountable people in our country? Don’t you just want to grab them by the collar and go “WHY ARE YOU ENABLING THIS? IT’S ROTTEN! IT’S FUCKING ROTTEN!”
What if we all went to a Senate committee meeting and drank a bunch of poison and then the Capitol Police had to drag our corpses out? If you gotta die, do it in style. I read that in the Bible, near the back.
