Thursday Margaret and Helen Blogging

For the first time since September, the blogosphere’s most had-it-up-to-here octogenarians have a new post up. A primal scream I think we can all relate to…

Margaret, what the hell is happening? Nazis are fine people. Russia poked me on Facebook. The Real Housewives of Trump Tower are fighting over who’s the real First Lady. And now the Civil War wasn’t about slavery. Has everyone gone insane?

We had an opportunity to have an honest conversation about racism and once again Trump screwed it up. Those football players are kneeling for a reason and it has nothing to do with the flag. And then we had an opportunity to have an honest conversation about gun violence and once again the Republican Party made it about… turned it into… changed the topic to… wait a minute. They didn’t do anything. They just left it hanging out there. It’s just bat shit crazy if you ask me.

And now we are debating the civil war? Again? I know for damn sure we had that conversation a long time ago and it ended with freeing the slaves and a dead president. Compromise? John Kelly says it was about lack of compromise? General Kelly, with all due respect, what was the acceptable compromise? The South could keep the slaves, but they had to give them weekends off? My God is anyone in the Trump White House not a racist? They’ve got more white sheets than a Motel 6 in Pulaski, Tennessee.

Read the whole thing—including a great slapdown of the ridiculous argument that Democrats don’t stand for anything—here. Thank you, ladies.

Cheers and Jeers starts below the fold… [Swoosh!!] RIGHTNOW! [Gong!!]
