Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

Sycophantic Circle Jerk

If, since last November, you haven't yet been embarrassed to be an American, you should be now.

Yesterday's photo-op congregation of Dolt 45's entire Cabinet and White House staff began with the Liar-In-Chief blowing it out his ass, lying about having passed more legislation and having done more than anyone since FDR.  (He's passed zero legislation.)

This blatant bullshit set the tone for what happened next -- they went around the table one by one, and each Cabinet member unconvincingly recited prepared remarks heaping brown-nose praise on our Dear Leader with the 35% approval rating:

(Photo only.  The audio-video version is too sickening.)

"It's such a privilege . . ."

"What an honor it is . . ."

"I'm so blessed . . ."

"You're the best president ever, with the biggest hands!"

"Luv your hair, man!"

This is a disgusting new low in American politics.  We've never seen anything like it before, and it could only happen now.  Not only did Prima Donald demand his underlings slavishly pay him tribute in this shameless bit of Kabuki drama, they all went along with it!  What a bunch of servile toadies!  Not a one of 'em had the guts to stand up and say, "Hell no!"

We have no future with this man.


"OK, Cabinet members.  That's enough talk about me.
Let's talk about you.
What do you think of me?"
