Full disclosure: We didn't watch The Speech. We just couldn't stomach the spectacle of that cretinous shitgibbon lying and smirking and babbling and being praised - oh country of the sorry low bar - for reading sentences off a screen and not grabbing any pussy on the way out. This is of course just our roiling gut level response. There are many worthy others - fact-checking, straight-faced, gag-worthy, truth-telling, riotous, and sickened by the unconscionable exploitation on display. We know only that those of good will and sound mind must keep fighting. And may God, Bowie, Karl and Groucho Marx and the Sisters of Mercy bless these once-and-perhaps-once- again shining United States.
