Celebrating Another Maskless, Clueless, Death-Haunted, Staggeringly Hypocritical "Special Time of the Year"
Oh dear, the Who Gives A Fuck About Christmas Wit ch has done it again. Cue a vacant-eyed, stiletto-heeled Melania strolling a White House packed with blinding, sparkling, twinkling, gazillion-dollar displays like a woman who got lost looking for the bathroom in a strange museum to "pay tribute to the majesty of our great Nation," now convulsed by death, fear and poverty thanks. She wishes us a season "overflowed with love, joy, peace, hope, and faith." Like she said, give us a fucking break.

To Break Their Human Spirit
With "barely a whimper," the U.N. just observed International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People - one more meager, shameful "date in the ever-growing timeline of misery inflicted on the people of Palestine." Meanwhile, their suffering will go on - arbitrary detention, collective punishment, home demolitions and invasions, the steadfast "dehumanization of a whole society" in the name of an "incremental genocide" - until we end the abuses of apartheid Israel, and U.S. complicity.

Tiny Desk, Tinier Man
Once again, Trump loses and Twitter wins after his surreal appearance stating the obvious - he'll leave - while seated at a teeny desk sparked an explosion of #DiaperDon and #TinyDesk posts mocking his banishment from the grown-ups' table. Giddy responses ranged from thanks for the resistance hero who quietly set him up to an NPR Tiny Desk Concert review - "Just yelled at reporters. Worst. Concert. Ever." This, it's agreed, will be his legacy: "A baby at his tiny little desk throwing a tantrum."

Peak 2020: Rockefeller Center's Mangy Tree and Foundling Owl Are Doing Better, Thanks
In a massive metaphor overload for even these calamitous times, Rockfeller Center's iconic Christmas tree for 2020 landed looking like America feels - haggard, scruffy, raggedy-ass and "worthy of this year of interminable hell." It also came with a bonus: A tiny saw-whet owl ensconced in its branches. Both arrivals prompted fierce debate - feel-good story or parable of American greed? - but ended relatively benignly. After having some "work," the tree shone, and Rocky the owl flew free.

Birds Of A Feather: Lame Duck Pardons Turkey And Everything's Fine Here Why Do You Ask?
Because things aren't weird enough, Tuesday saw the shabby, surreal spectacle of President Turkey congratulating Corn the Turkey - "Look at that beautiful, beautiful bird. Oh, so lucky. That is a lucky bird" - because he gets to live another day in the hellscape the guy pardoning him created. The ever-peculiar event was reportedly muted - no jokes, few cameras, loser city - but reporters loudly asked if he'd be pardoning himself. No answer. Maybe because, in truth, the sins are unpardonable.

Sharing the Landscape: Gator and Gunner Come To An Agreement, More or Less
The macro view of things remains dark - plague rages, planet burns, evil clowns bluster - so we'll start the week with a serendipitous alligator wrasslin' match. Wildlife surveillance cameras captured the moment a Florida retiree rushed into a pond to save his puppy from the jaws of a small alligator that "came out of the water like a missile." After a tussle, he pried the gator's jaws open, the dog scurried off, no hard feelings all around. Best touch: The guy never dropped his cigar.

My Cousin Rudy Is Melting But He Can Still Smell Election Crimes With the Deranged Help Of His Elite Strike Force
Ooof. Well that was bonkers. In his latest train wreck of a news conference, Rudy Giuliani claimed that, in a "common scheme," Joe Biden rigged the election with "mass cheating" in a coordinated, nationwide conspiracy with city officials, along with George Soros and Hugo Chavez even though he's dead; he proved his charge by re-enacting a scene from "My Cousin Vinny" as hair dye poured down his sweaty face, insisting, "This is real! It's not made up!" Dear God, make it stop.

Orwellian: Ardent Covidiots Vow NOBODY WILL TAKE ARE FREEDOM AWAY
The U.S. map is blazingly red: 11.6 million COVID cases, over 250,000 dead. Still, the stupid is strong in us. Led by a White House and Fox News in such rabid denial some of the dying join in, covidiot rumors that government has "cancelled Thanksgiving" have them raving about tyranny, communists, sheeple, "fascist muzzles." Brutal truth from Gov. Phil Murphy for those who find masks "uncomfortable and annoying": "Y ou know what's really uncomfortable and annoying? When you die."

Here, Right Matters (Still)
On the day Trump fired the latest person for doing his job - Chris Krebs for saying there's no voter fraud - it's good to see another truth-teller, Lt. Col Alexander Vindman, back from the gulag and doing well, thanks. The National Security aide ousted for exposing the Ukraine grift has a shiny new job with Lawfare, a respected website about national security issues. He's also still speaking up, and has a book coming out. Its title, from his testimony: “Here, Right Matters: An American Story.”

The Biggest Loser: He Who Refuses To Be Dragged From Office
As the petulant man-baby babbles in denial, the world turns against him. Millions rejoice at his firing, he's lost 16 court cases - the Supreme Court just declined to hear about fictional crimes in Pennsylvania - Twitter campaigns want to unfollow and deactivate him, his staff treat him like "a lunatic on the subway - everyone sits and stares ahead, and waits for him (to) get off." Poet Julie Bruck on the dictator hiding wild-eyed in his bedroom: "And now the dogs, they gather in the square."
