My Darling Clementine

Do you have any idea how hard it is to find an arrangement of this song that’s not totally cheesy? I’m not sure I succeeded.

I got this into the rotation because I have been thinking about M*A*S*H.

In season 5 of this series, there was an episode called “Movie Tonight” in which Col. Potter is so thrilled to get the camp a copy of this movie for their movie night. Then, of course, one thing after another humorously – and not so humorously – interferes with watching it straight through.

Finally they get to the end, and in the pleasant afterglow of a fine movie, wounded arrive on jeeps in the compound.

There’s a rumor that you, too, can see this movie here.

Two Surgeons Walk Into a Bar

…and the bartender says, Oh, another paradox.

Like when I post a blog entry to tell my readers I don’t really feel like posting a blog entry.

Impeachable

Not only do the Rethuglican senators ignore the proceedings at the impeachment “trial,” they met with the defense team for a strategy session. This shows you exactly how seriously they take their oath of office, their oaths as members of this mockery of a jury, and the Constitution.

If they don’t convict the person who made this speech

We’re going walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators, and congressmen and women. We’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong.
We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.
Today we will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections, but whether or not they stand strong for our country, our country. Our country has been under siege for a long time, far longer than this four-year period.

Pumpkin, Jan 6

…to a right-wing mob, of inciting the Capitol insurrection that day…

…then they should just strike the Impeachment Clause from the Constitution…

…because it’s a fucking joke.

Unintelligence Briefing

Aside: how is this POS still in the news? It’s disgusting.

It’s enough, already!

Enough!

Race Dismissed

Just when you thought it was safe to go about having Black History Month… this happened.

Click thru for truth truer than what really happened

That’s right – a school in Utah decided to let concerned racist parents opt their kids out of all the Black History Month aspects of the lessons this month. Then the “school” got a call from the Ogden NAACP. Then they backed off. You can read the whole sorry tale here.

I’ll be glad when we don’t need the NAACP and similar anymore. But we’re not even close yet.
