In His Great and Unmatched Wisdom: WTF GOP?

Bonkers City. Having made the wildly capricious, deeply uninformed, universally excoriated - even by uber-sycophant Lindsey Graham? - "decision" to abandon the Kurds in Syria who long fought with us against ISIS, Cadet Foggy Bone Spurs then rushed to Twitter to assure everyone it's all good folks, because in his "great and unmatched wisdom" he promises that if NATO ally Turkey goes in to slaughter the Kurds as many fear, "I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!)," so sure not to worry. Online, many stopped to wonder if Mr. Emoluments' frenzy of destruction would include Turkey's Trump Towers. Given the code-red, Wizard of Oz, "the moon is part of Mars" level of delusion on display, others noted this moronic madman has the nuclear codes, wondered if he'd try raking Turkey's forest floors or surrounding it by "water, big water, ocean water," or worried about the odds he thinks he's talking about an actual turkey, and recalled he also thought it would be cool to nuke hurricanes and put snakes in a moat. "This is the parody account, right?" one mused. Another cut to the deeply disturbing chase: "The hell is wrong with you." Yeah, this is all totally normal. Nothing to see here.

Talking without a brain. It can be done.

By Percy Bysshe Shelley

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”
