President Joe Biden lures Vladimir Putin (R-Moscow) into his trap with the pull-my-finger trick in Geneva, Switzerland on Wednesday

June 17, 2021

After a 6 month I hate us, we have decided it is time to bring TWITPOL back! We have all been through a lot these past 6 months, and we figured it is time to remind us all that no matter how much the world bugs us, it’s cicada laugh at bad puns.

To the news!

What a difference an election makes! President Joe Biden, fresh off of shoving absolutely no-one out of the way to get his fat ass in a photo, this week went to Geneva for a long-awaited…

January 1st, 20-twenty-fucking one, baby.

Oh what a year this week has been. We would write one of those sappy year in review things, but that ground has been covered. Hell, the History Channel has already made a movie version.

It has been 37 days since President-Elect Joe Biden soundly defeated one-term President Donald Trump. Since then, Trump and his legal “strike force” have been handed a courtroom defeat more than once a day in their effort to overturn the election. Apparently they actually were tired of winning. And if you are 1–55 in court cases, and need to bring respectability and likability to your legal team so as to charm judges, to whom should you turn?

Clearly, Ted “Zodiak Killer” Cruz. Well, at least according to… Ted “Zodiak Killer” Cruz.

Well, the president’s krak team of lawyers continued to dominate the news this week by losing case after case in court after court. The team, which “lawyer” Jenna Ellis dubbed as an “elite legal strike force” has suffered more court losses than the Cleveland Cavaliers, and that’s saying something.

In addition to their three and a half dozen losses so far, the elite legal strike force has upcoming losses scheduled in Georgia, Wisconsin, and for the eleventeenth time, in Pennsylvania. These guys have lost in Pennsylvania more often than the Cleveland Browns, and that’s saying something.

In honor of the fact that Q-Anon conspiracy theorist and now former-felon Michael Flynn has been pardoned by President Trump, we thought we would present the following Democracy Massacree.

Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!

Q can get anything it wants at Malice’s restaurant
Q can get anything it wants at Malice’s restaurant
Walk right in, unless you’re black
But you’re gonna have to give to Trump’s Super PAC
Q can get anything it wants at Malice’s restaurant

This song is called “Malice’s Restaurant
It’s about Malice, and the
Restaurant, but “Malice’s Restaurant” is not really a restaurant,
That’s just the name of…

We are not going to say that Donald Trump’s attempted coup (“coup d’etwat” as we’ve previously referred to it) is an amateurish mess, but… if this coup team were in the NFL, they’d be the Jets.

The Winnipeg Jets. Yes, that bad.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but the legal team is currently 1–33 in the courtroom, and today they held their first press conference outside of a landscape business in weeks, and the big takeaway was that the shoe polish Rudy Giuliani uses to color his “hair” seems to melt under the…

The King… err, president, and his minions, are said to be plotting a way to stage a coup.

November 12, 2020

Before we get started with this abbreviated week in review, let us just say how glad we are to be back.

Our last issue was 17 years ago, on July 30, 2020. We assume nothing has changed since we left, so we’ve turned a beautiful corner and the coronavirus is a distant memory, Joe Biden can’t win the general election unless he chooses Elizabeth Warren as his nominee, though luckily Florida is in the bag. Even if it’s not and a court battle ensues, Justice Roberts will join Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the court’s liberals in doing…

For all those who have wondered just how much more bizarre the Trump years could get? We have an answer. Things could get demon semen bizarre. That’s how much. Just when you thought there was no further to go, we learn that this one goes to eleven.

For those of you who don’t know where this semen stuff is coming from, here’s the jizzt of the story:

President Trump this week retweeted a video by a “Doctor” who says that schools should reopen, because there is a cure for COVID-19… hydroxychloroquine and that masks are unnecessary. Other…

Lyndon Johnson had his war on Poverty. Richard Nixon had the war on drugs. Following their lead, Donald Trump is opening a war of his own … the War on …the Beaver State?

Indeed, that is not a typo. Russia is paying bounties for U.S. soldiers, coronavirus cases are spiraling out of control, 1.4 million new first-time jobless claims were filed last week — and at least 30 million Americans are collecting unemployment benefits … and President Trump has leapt into action, sending heavily armed troops in minivans to Oregon.

For those of you who have not…


Every time Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg gets a medical procedure (which is way too often for my liking), a small chorus of people rises up to say that because of her age and health concerns she should have retired during the Obama administration.

I have several problems with that argument.

First, it is demeaning to Justice Ginsburg — it is predicated on the idea that she brings no unique experience, skills, intellect, and insights to the court. Justice Ginsburg’s body of work, both before she was elevated to the Supreme Court and since, have made the nation a…
