If you vote, you have no right to complain.

I watched.

Calculated chaos is what I think I saw.

How much higher would the stakes have to be before those who want change ( I'm not talking about Paul Simon's singing off key BTW ) could figure out the importance of defeating Big Top Don?

Disenfranchisement in the manner that is being discussed all over the internet is fearsome. It's good to fight it.

It's good as well to know when the foot stamping may not be effective.

I'm not sure I know when that exact moment occurred or even if it's here yet.

But I do know that now, like most times when it happens, that being chided for holding differing opinions by someone who shouts to be quiet gives me a cognitive dissonance that isn't easy to reconcile.

Don't worry. I'll be in by curfew.

Silverman reminded me of Princess Vespa from the movie Spaceballs last night. All it would have taken to be perfect would have been to have DWS playing the part of Dot Matrix.

The Carlin piece is a timeless gem. .

Indistinguishable doesn't work this time around.

Bernie is not indistinguishable from Hillary, but either is vastly better than Donald.

SBA,

You know I'll have to take your word for it. I'm seldom up to speed on pop culture.

Ron Powell,

 That's probably good advice anywhere.

JMac,

I know you're a Carlin fan. Won't see another like him in our lifetime is my guess.

koshersalaami,

 I can't tell what that means.
