Never do I feel so powerless and deflated in my role as a citizen as I do toward the end of an election season, but 2012 is quickly reaching a new level of awfulness. I just can’t wait for this to be over. From the top of the ticket on down (except for a few bright spots I’ll get to later), the dispiriting sense that “winning” can only be called such because losing is flat-out unthinkable, given that almost half of the electorate is evidently willing and eager to elect into office a party that holds them in utter contempt.

So want to have some fun on April 17th when you drop off your tax return at the Post Office? It seems there are going to be some tax protests at different locations around New York City to call out some people and corporations who manipulate the tax code to pay a lower effective tax rate than the rate imposed on the 99%.

Today however, we have someone like Donald Trump claiming to be worth $7B, with $3B of that being his “brand.” Yeah, that’s right. The guy whose combover has been likened to a dead raccoon claims a worth nearly double the generous estimates provided by Forbes. I guess The Donald must subscribe to the “there’s no such thing as bad publicity” theory since a recent Fox Poll (via Media Matters) showed a Trump endorsement would be received positively by 6% of those polled versus negatively by 31% of those polled.

Reality TV star and possible independent presidential candidate, Donald Trump has decided he will no longer host a Republican primary debate. During this unusual Republican primary season it has seemed there was almost no limit to the amount of absurdity in the race. It now appears, though, that we have found the limit, and it is Donald Trump.

Are we a democracy or are we some poorly written Saturday Night Live sketch parody of a democracy? It is getting harder and harder to tell.

Meet Miss Virgina USA who has added something else, aside from “flingydoos” to the things she hates: Seems Nikki Poteet also doesn’t like “faggots…cocksuckers” according to her roommate Derek Powell. He and his boyfriend Chris were on the receiving end of those epithets on October 29, when darling Nikki –apparently upset that her roommate had friends over, and perhaps herself a bit tipsy– swung her shoes at guests, shoved guests, destroyed a family heirloom, “kneed” a guest, and told people that her male companion would beat their asses.

These wingnuts are absolutely convinced that human life begins at conception, but when it comes to global warming and Obama’s citizenship — we just can’t be sure.

This is really good news for some white guy. And when I say “some white guy,” I don’t mean RedState’s Erick Erickson, who scheduled an epic one-on-one interview with Trump which is now effectively meaningless, as if it wasn’t before.

Poopy Pat has been spreading his poop for over forty years, but he’s still mean to people who are different from him. I’m usually a lot less cranky after a big poop, so I don’t know why Poopy Pat is still so mean after all this poop. My Mommy tells me that everyone is different, and that’s what makes us special. Poopy Pat thinks different is bad instead of special. That’s really sad when you think about it.

Mr President, please don’t mock Donald Trump for his firing skills. Trump may be a circus midway sideshow manager whose trademark catchphrase now defines the Great American Recession’s zeitgeist.
But you, sir, are no standout in the “You’re Fired” department.
