Sunday Funday: Air Traffic Controllers To The Rescue Edition

I do not know who gets the credit for bringing Dear Leader’s insane lockout of the country’s nearly one million government workers to an end, but I am willing to give credit to the one-two punch at the airport of the TSA checkers and the Air Traffic Controllers without whom the planes can’t fly. Thank you.

Oh – and of course Nancy Pelosi who proved that it is possible to say “NO” to Dear Leader and stick to it.

While I will admit we don’t know right now what broke the Asshole’s back, we certainly know who to blame this gawd-awful mess on. Dear Leader is 90% of the blame. He appears to believe that his job is to swagger around, make stupid comments and order us lesser humans to do his bidding. Don’t work that way in a democracy, Mr. Dear Leader Dude.

Also a big chunk of blame goes to a totally compliant Republican Party that fully two years into the Dear Leader term continues to do their job. What are we paying them for, anyway. Can’t wait until Joni (Shutdown) Ernst comes around asking for my vote. I have a few questions in return – like where in the hell were you when we needed someone to stand up for what is right? You sure won’t doing your job.

I could go on for pages, but you are eager to answer some questions, aren’t you?

Trump was too scared to give Pelosi a nickname, and then she cancelled his SOTU address. Congratulations to Neuterin’ Nancy!
