I thought my favorite news site might address the historic and long waited indictment of a person it has been critical of in the past but it doesn’t look like that’s happening, so I’m writing this while waiting for my train this morning.
For those who realize that JFK Jr. and James Woods are not actually running the country at the moment there will be a justifiable celebration of the first in a series of legal actions brought against a man who has managed to evade them for years before he managed to dupe 72 million willing participants to elect him their president.
And for those actual Americans embarrassed that a former occupant of the Oval Office had to be impeached TWICE; rallied his army of brain-dead followers to storm our Capitol like a cheerleader at a college football game; is still around despite losing the popular vote TWICE and has now become the first former president to be indicted, I hope you will all join me in a communal toast and expression of hope for a better future.
The country deserves it, and not the current crop of conspiracy theorists and illiterates who have – somehow – risen to positions of power.
While some measure of justice awaits Blobbo The Blotard we must remember those who saluted him and were complicit in his rise to power. Because as we wait for the wheels of justice to turn we should acknowledge the serious failures in our system that allowed a con man to ascend to the highest seat of power in the nation and take the necessary steps to ensure that it never happens again.
