Sunday Morning Post (V.2, #27): Christmas In July


I’ll let everyone in on a secret, but you have to make a promise before I reveal it.  You have to promise to be good in November, not get complacent about the future of American democracy and go out and vote or mail in your ballot on 11/3.  Promise?   Crossed fingers behind your back?  Okay.

Here’s the secret: the Joe Biden campaign and the Democrats just got a gift from none other than the President they want to unseat in November.  His gift?  He commuted the sentence of his close pal and convicted felon Roger Stone.  The President’s bud won’t have to serve any time for lying to Congress about his involvement in Russia’s interference with the 2016 election.  The commutation is admittedly an act which sets the whole concept of justice back about a millennium or two, but there is a silver lining to be had.

The Democrats can now use this act against the President as another example of his corruption of power.  The commutation will engulf the Sunday morning news casts and opinion promoters for both sides of the political aisle for at least the immediate news cycle.  After that the next wave of anti-President ads will virtually write themselves.  The Democrats will save money on employing a Madison Avenue style political consultant to create copy.  They can use their savings on purchasing huge blocks of advertising time on local television stations in prime time. 

It will be the gift that keeps on giving!  Thank you, Mr. President for being so thoughtful.

Even better, members of the President’s own party are coming out to denounce this “compassionate act”.  Former Presidential candidate and current Utah Senator Mitt Romney has condemned the President’s act as “historic corruption”. Historic corruption!  Imagine that! 

Mind you, this in reference to the President who promised to drain the swamp in Washington.  For the record, this President has done no such thing.  Rather than draining said swamp he has expanded its area to accommodate more muck.  That area is now roughly the size of the Gulf of Mexico, and growing bigger with every Presidential Tweet.

That’s a lot of muck!

The next few months have always promised to be interesting, but who could foresee this incredible stroke of luck!  It is very prudent at this point to circle back to our original thought:  this is no time to be complacent about Joe Biden’s chances.  We must all do our part come November 3.  For duty and humanity and American democracy! 

(Thank you for reading.  Remember…you promised!)

Yeah, pretty damn blatant. Hopefully will be another nail in his coffin, as you say.

I'm voting.
And this latest blatant attempt at circumventing the law by _____ is a small reason why.
His racism fuels my vote.

Hold on to your hats, I do believe Pat Toomey too voiced a complaint, not as loud as Mitt, but loud enough to get a nasty Tweet from the Idiot Jerk. Pat's scared he's going to get fired.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed, Debra.

Thank you for your comment, Bob. We need to keep this enthusiasm up for 4 more months!

Thank you , Dave R. Now Toomey is a RINO! He won't stay there long.

We'll hope for the best, Spo.
