Welcome To Operation Warped Denial of Reality
Grim times. As U.S.COVID deaths spiral near 350,000, we hit daily records, hospitals overflow and the U.K.'s lethal new strain turns up, the murderous bunglers in charge have vaccinated just 2 million of a promised 20 million Americans. Still, dumbly defiant Repubs party and succumb. Luke Letlow, 41, Louisiana's new rep, died after long going maskless and arguing we have to live with COVID. He now joins 3,000 health workers. Twitter: "Let the party of personal responsibility take some."

On Wounded Knee: We Fight To Mend the Hoop
On this date 130 years ago, U.S. soldiers with the 7th Cavalry massacred nearly 400 hungry, frightened, unarmed Lakota, mostly women and children, on South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation - a final slaughter of Native Americans in the cold and snow, where soldiers proudly posed by mass graves, that became an enduring symbol of genocide and historical trauma for Natives. "The sacred hoop of humanity was broken that day," one writes. "Black Elk said the dream died. We will not let it."

Jumping the Shark with Stalin
The GOP's now tilted so beyond our earthly sphere that intrepid Dumb Guy Louie Gohmert is leading a new effort to overturn the election by suing Mike Pence, arguing he has “exclusive authority and sole discretion” to decide what votes count under 1887's Electoral Count Act and citing democratic icon Joseph Stalin to prove it. Alas, there are some problems. Pence is hiding in Vail, CO with a Secret Service army hitting the rich slopes in defiance of CDC guidelines - and the scheme is "insane."

Marta Flies Away
COVID Christmas. The evil cretin lies and golfs - current tab: $151.5 million - as America burns. Its stricken people get sick and go hungry and lose their homes; its hurting children act out a "horror story about American poverty" by asking Santa Claus for a coat, mask, bed, cure for "crona"; its billionaires double their unholy fortunes. For mercy, see an aged Spanish ballerina with Alzheimer's dance to Swan Lake from her wheelchair - grace, grit, hope, sorrow incarnate.

Shot In the Head: What Kind of Boundless Evil Is This, America?
In "a tragic day all over again," our murderous sociopath just "killed justice" by pardoning four Blackwater war criminals who pointlessly slaughtered 17 Iraqi civilians in 2007. Trump's repugnant move to condone "Iraq's My Lai massacre" is "a deep subversion of justice" that impairs national security, confirms to Iraqis "our blood is cheaper than water," and, to the father of 9-year-old Ali Kinani, whose brains they blew out, "broke my life again. He broke the law. He broke everything."

God Bless America Also Please Buy A Hoodie To Free Kyle Rittenhouse
Because up is down and capitalism rules, the family of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old punk who killed two men with an assault rifle at peaceful Kenosha protests, is selling "Free Kyle" merch in the righteous name of "the God-given and Constitutional right to self-defense," also the right to profit from murder cuz 'Murica. Horribly predictably, he's become a hero to neo-Nazis - see "Kyle Was Right t-shirts - who argue reckless homicide (when white) means "it's a free country."

First In the Room, Back of the Line: America's Profiteering Health System Does It Again
With Pfizer's welcome COVID-19 vaccine here, so are America's unwelcome rich and privileged, clamoring for their entitled spot at the head of the line. In a sign of let-them-eat-cake things to come, frontline residents at Stanford Medical Center held a rowdy protest after the hospital distributed almost all its first 5,000 vaccines to executives and other suits who've stayed safely home for months. So much for heroes. One critic: " This is all you need to know about American healthcare."

An Embarrassing Situation
Poor Donnie is really doing this whole lame duck thing bigly. Not only has he now lost the election 274 times, or maybe it's 60. He's also got his own Lame Duck Temper Tantrum website in honor of his current crime wave; he has a shiny #TrumpIsALaughingStock hashtag; pranksters have already turned his 2024 hopes into a loser joke; people are writing epically scathing political obits for him; and now even his Mar-A-Lago neighbors want him to stay away. Sweet revenge.

Nothing To See Here, Just Marauding Neo-Fascists Wearing Frocks
Because things in the apocalypse can always get weirder, many are dazed and confused by the spectacle both of neo-Nazis roaming the streets of D.C. at the behest of our Whiny Loser-In-Chief, and of some of them wearing kilts - an act of cultural appropriation that, for one Scotsman, "makes my eyes bleed." Same for the horrified owner of the proudly " LGBTQIA+ owned, operated, designed and lived" kilt company - oops - who then donated to the NAACP "to redirect hate to love. "

So Long! Farewell!
Whew. Even a right-wing SCOTUS has confirmed Trump's The Biggest Loser, speedily and unanimously rejecting a gonzo, long-shot, MyPillow-endorsed move by multiple "authoritarian yahoos," aka spineless seditionists masquerading as GOP state attorneys general, to overthrow the will of the people. The decision, expected in anything approaching a normal universe and profoundly welcome because this isn't, means that, "From a legal perspective, the fat lady has sung."
