Constitutional Law 101: It's Our Freedom of Speech and We're Exercising It, You Dimwit
Talk about doubling down: A Texas woman threatened and arrested by a Repub sheriff affronted by her straight-talking truck decal - FUCK TRUMP AND FUCK YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM - has not only added the sheriff's name to her missive; she's considering suing him. Sheriff Troy Nehls was upset by her "offensive display." Far more offensive, argues Karen Fonseca and her state rep, is a president who boasts he can "grab women by the pussy” and a sheriff who feels he can "target citizens."

Do Riot In Your Country
Honoring the tenacity of creative resistance, even in the most onerous political climates, comes "Art Riot: Post-Soviet Actionism," a London exhibit of Russian protest art over the last 25 years. Ranging from photography to performance art and marking the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, the show is a reminder of the universal power of protest in bleak times; it urges us, says Pussy Riot, to "Just do riot in your country."

Money Money Money: When The Revolution Comes Oh Please Can These Creeps Be the First To Go?
Always happy to offend America - and just as the GOP House passes an obscene "welfare for the wealthy" tax bill - evil Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and his tone-deaf trophy wife Louise "The-Little-People-Are-Adorable" Linton stopped by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to ogle new $1 bills that will bear Mnuchin's signature. To pose with teeny bills used by the poors, Linton wore Cruella De Vil/vampire murderess black leather. No cognitive dissonance here. Get your pitchforks ready.

Cards Against Humanity Stops the Wall and Saves America
"The government is being run by a toilet," notes the creators of the raunchy, cogent Cards Against Humanity , and "Donald Trump is a preposterous golem." He's also so afraid of Mexicans he wants to build a dumb $20 billion wall, but CAH is stepping up with a holiday deal to stop him. They've bought land at the border and hired lawyers to defend it; for a few bucks, folks get six days of gifts and the joy of helping fight the wall. "We have no choice," says CAH. "(We're) going to save America."

Annals of Scumbaggery Part 724
Remarkably, the sordid saga of Roy Moore gets ever sleazier. Added to the sexual assaults of teenagers: As a judge, he defended the rights of sexual offenders against their victims; in his 30s he was banned from a local mall for cruising for teenage girls; he lied about Christian endorsements; someone sent out fake robocalls for him using such a cartoonish Jewish name one bemused critic mused, "Why not just stick with Jewy McJew?" How low can we go? This low.

An Insecure, Incoherent Idiot Abroad: "It Was A Red Carpet Like Nobody, I Think, Has Probably Ever Seen"
Loud Little Donnie's back from his Asian adventures. The good news: We're not at (more) war. The bad news: He blithely ignored the human rights abuses of strongmen, flattered/was comically flattered by them, and was "staggeringly incoherent" on issues, a "drunk driver crashing a pickup truck (of) alphabet soup" and babbling about "big events" and "amazing feelings" key to the ego of what North Korea calls "the lunatic old man of the White House, lost to senses." And lest we forget, not normal.

Maybe Just A Little Bit Unusual: Judge Roy Moore Is Righteous, Romantic and Clean As A Hound's Tooth, Just Like Mary and Joseph (Sort Of)
The explosive WaPo story portraying Alabama's Roy "We-Should-Criminalize-Homosexuality-To-Prevent-The-Subversion-Of-Children" Moore as a serial sexual predator of young girls has met with some tawdry, gonzo responses. A few brave souls said the GOP "doesn't have any place for pedophiles." But many more sputtered virtuously about lies, allegations, Clinton, romance, "the forces of evil" and - the best - the parents of Jesus, who also had a sizeable age gap. Gawd we love the GOP.

What the World Should Look Like
It's been so long - oh this dark slog of a year - since any good news, we admit it took us all day to register the joy of Tuesday's trans, black, gay, Sikh, Latina and many women defiantly taking back our country. One of our fave winners is this guy, Braxton Winston, who won a seat on Charlotte's City Council; his goal is "to speak up on behalf of my children, myself, what I believe in and what the world should look like.”

On Delusional Cowards and the Good Guy With A Gun Myth
In the wake of the latest American massacre, pols are still stupidly sputtering - Prayer works! More people died in the Holocaust! Ask God to purge evil! - to cover their blood-spattered tracks. Occupying a "special podium of delusional cowardice" is Trump insisting "mental health is your problem here” and "this isn't a guns situation" and thank goodness for that hero good guy with a gun. Not. We call distraction, and bullshit.

A Lady of the Most Impeccable Taste
In this dark time of too-few heroes, we salute Juli Briskman, a working 50-year-old mom who was out biking and brooding on the ruinous state of the nation when the cretin responsible for much of it drove by. As her "blood just started to boil," she did what any patriot would - gave him the finger. Because what 1st Amendment these days, she's been fired. Note to America: "Juli needs a job, and she deserves it for making us happy."
