So I guess I am next on their radar. I am pro-fracking, anti
government -mandated minimum wage, and opposed to tearing down statues, even those honoring French saints.

And yet for "SOME" reason, nobody gives a flying fuck about you.

Poor Red.

So after a week and some in depth reporting we learn more about
Charlottesville and Boston.
The New York Times ’s Sheryl Stolberg tweeted from Charlottesville“The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park.” Poor Sheryl is now the target of Antifa internet goons.
In Boston all 12 of the Nazis and the white supremacists took tail and ran after being confronted. This left the leftists with a shitload of urine filled balloons but what to do with them?
Not a problem. Plenty of police to treat as right wingers. The Black Lives Matter's group must be so proud.

Laughing:

Watching Trump "One Vote!"  Reminds me of the joke about McTavish, (I'll assume you all know it and jump to the punch line...) "Do they call me McTavish the boat builder? Nae laddy, they doona! But ya fook ONE GOAT!"

That's how Trump wants to have John McCain remembered "Do the call me Johnny the consensus builder? Nae lady, they doona. But ya fook ONE VOTE!"

The one about clean coal, "Meaning they're gonna take it out they're gonna clean it."

That's flat out funny. Except he thinks that's what clean coal means!

If I were a political cartoonist tho' I'd have one about the Statues of George Washington being taken down by Trump and replaced with Straw Man Statues of George Washington.

Are we laughing yet?

How about? The Clintons tried for eight years to get Health care but Donald got the VA fixed in les than 8 months. And these leaders are so weak. These statues have been up for 150, 100 years and they give up overnight (so it's good when you can "do something" in under 8 months, that is unrelated to something that the Clintons spent 8 years on, which is also a distortion. But when someone does overnight that which has been attempted for 100 years!) (BTW, let's stop calling them Confederate Statues or memorials and call them what they are, Scare Crows!
Jim Crow came down, the Scare Crows ought to come down too.)

Interesting you mention Lenny Bruce...read a comparison today somewhere between Trump and Bruce's last days, the way each appear to be deteriorating into a state of increased incoherence fueled by a toxic mix of personal grievance and self pity.

Last night was not a pretty sight.

Bruce also had a toxic mix of drugs. He ODed on (IIRC) heroin

One day we'll look back on all of this and laugh.

Who says we can't laugh now?  This is the Golden (see beaker, at right) Age of political humor.  Just ask John Oliver, Sam Bee, Stephen Colbert, the writers at the Onion, Andy Borowitz, et al.  

That said, I agree with Banks that Der Trumpf's treatment of McCain was sad and disgusting. 

As one who tries to find a laugh when possible, and has adopted a Marxian (Groucho) view of the world, and who appreciated political humor of Lehrer  Sahl, Bruce, Gregory, Carlin to those you cited above, I'm hard pressed to find an easy chuckle about the mean-spirited senile asshole who has his hand on the button, and just might push it, because he can, and no one else in this country can, and that'll show those fake news fuckers who make fun of my  tiny hands!!

I recently got less stressed (and, ergo, more easily amused) when I realized how much Trump has alienated his generals and joint chiefs and all.  All the "finger on the button" fears (fears that the great Mr. Lehrer once sang about in a different context, and I liked those others on your list, too) are tempered with the awareness that Trump would need a viable chain of command to actually fire nukes at anyone.  He needs a whole heirarchical network of people to get the men in silos and subs to simultaneously turn keys, and I just don't think the military is willing to follow his lunatic whims.  His tiny hands are suitable for picking up Cheerios and, well, you know...

I guess the upside to my fears is that there remains the possibility that a rational military command ignores the Chief Grifter for the good of the country.

I'll try to stay serene and calm

As Donald Trump has got the bomb

Will Melo consider Cleveland now?

Why would he?
Why would Knicks?

DWade could get bought out and go to the Cavs.  Melo could be swayed to play a year with the banana boat boys.  Melo for Love.
