That Tears It

Betty Cracker at Balloon Juice has had it and goes on an epic rant.

I’m not sure why, but I’m as angry and depressed this week as I’ve been since the night of the election, when I realized with dawning horror that yes, my countrymen really are racist, sexist and/or fucking stupid enough to elevate an embarrassing, malignant turd like Donald Motherfucking Trump to the highest office in the land, a notion that, in my naivete, I’d considered impossible until it actually happened.

Why the rage now? The Gorsuch thing is part of it — the theft of that seat is as clear an example of evil cheats prospering as you’ll ever see. And also that pathetic peacock display of a bombing run and the media reaction to it. That a lumpy, gelatinous pile of possum scat like Trump is now appointing SCOTUS judges and ordering military action rubbed my nose anew in the cold reality of November 2016.

You can read the rest of it here.  But if your delicate sensibilities are threatened by cuss words and various vulgarities, here’s a cat video.
