GOP Alpha Dogs and Beta Cucks. So Seriously. #NotJoking.

  Applause to the hard-working left leaners over at Salon. And their comrades at Alternet. Headlines alone get an h/t with a flourish: The Alpha Dog that Wouldn’t Hunt: How Trump’s Ludicrous 'Alpha Male' Act Is Destroying Him sub: •  Trump's alt-right fanboys celebrate his so-called "alpha" masculinity -- but they're the real "cucks."   Matthew Rozsa of Salon has wisely held his mirth and thoroughly  covered the Belly Flop of a recent prat fall of The Dickish Donald ... in ways that should make you go Ick. Brendan Gauthier at Salon has also been feeling The antiTrump Vibe as volubly and magnificently. You see, [...]

Misogynist Trumpty Dumbty Uses Bill O’Reilly as His Priest and Confessional?!

                            Editorial cartoonist Matt Wuerker, via Politico Universal dot com   . I'm not even Catholic and was starting to see arguable papacy behaviors on a regular The Factor Confessional basis from the spoiled global hellion, Donnie J. Trump. No matter the preponderance of egregious,  Bill O'Reilly ends up in a satanic split screen of himself trying to ameliorate the damage of Trump corruption and lack of ethics. Apologies for linking you to the deep foxy swamp that produces all of that. ..  .   . Was The Donald's [...]

Trump’s In a Glass Dawghouse Permanently Per Any Thinking Woman

    Just as Roger Ailes and Bill Cosby put punctuation to their own creepy sex scandals and waved anything resembling public respect au revoir, The Donald's long and storied history of bully behaviors/abusive speech re women pivots to Ick. Trump pretty much Triples Down on his most offensive bigoted commentary. He enjoys calling women pigs, deriding them as 'fat' and 'ugly' or 'semi-attractive' or 'slobs'. Or that there are somehow hordes of disgusting 400 lb. pitifuls no one but he can see, apparently to illustrate the dark depths to which his ship of idiots will sink. Then defend the descent. [...]

Hump Day Quickie: Brit Wit John Oliver

I’m obsessed with the highly hilarious John Oliver and here’s why … he’s smart funny. Doesn’t kneel often do the broad and low-low-low comic postures that come so alarmingly easily to Donald Dicque Trump. He’s just one wit-tay dude. We’ll take 30 minutes of Oliver and no no no ego-driven Morning Schmoe and Meeka, please, sir. Oliver captures ‘umorous electricity in a bottle, utilizing the rare Monty Python level ability to find your true gut and crack it completely up. For days. Then drew you back again and again for that reliable guffaw — the kind that’s a compulsory share. [...]

Race and Gender, Meet Modern Guns, Gays and Bibles #OurRevolution

  Guns, Bibles and gays. For those of us who can remember the Johnson-Nixonian era of racial ignorance and nativist pearl clutching (make that pearl-handled derringer clutching for the helpless dames), this decade is ringing in far too many memories of a deliberately divided and globally embarrassing nation at war with itself and it's own liberty. There is some serious work to be done in some 48 days. The update of the Guns, Bibles and gays triangulation is potentially lethal, people. We believed that was as self-sickened a culture as we could imagine, following on the tarred heels of Jim Crow, Vietnam [...]

The 2016 Cirque de Shite Pauses For the Finishing Off of One Krispy Christie

  Let us offer up hope that a grinning Loretta Lynch knows the digits of a satirical florist in Fort Lee … the ultimate Big Man Jig appears to finally be up. Quick vote:  So, how many progressives beside moi and Laffy are jumping up and down inside about the epic Bridgegate news?!? Smug has a whole new meaning when a rat-trap like the FBI nets a biggie,  New Jersey gubernatorial body Christopher Christie. […]

Radio or Not Pricque of the Week: Super Patriot Rudy Giuliani

Annnd … the GOP quotable moments in advance of the 2016 Big Dance just keep rolling in. Whether they aim to attack Obama or presumed Dem front-out-runner Hillary Clinton doesn't seem to change the calibre or quantity of the opposition ammo. Giuliani already put hisself' 'pon the Public Pillory of Snark when he inserted his mayoral opining into a discussion of young black men and 'shootings' last year, wasn't that special? On Red Meat the Press, no less, he c-ch-ch--choked out this morsel of bilious Ick, White police officers wouldn't be in black neighborhoods, killing black men, "if you weren’t [...]

Friday Guffaw: Tighty Whities in Canadian Parliament

    If you need a chuckle to start your Friday off well, here are a few moments of Canadian Dry to tickle the needy funny bone. Canadian Member of Parliament Pat Martin gifted us with this unique excuse for having scooted out of the Session he was meant to be firmly ass-in-seat for.   The local press, and CBC,  had a well-deserved yee-haw day with the clever gaffe recovery, including this titillating bit from CBC herself. NDP MP Pat Martin had a somewhat uncomfortable explanation for a brief absence from his seat in the House of Commons on Thursday morning. [...]

She Wrote A Little Song About It: Lauren Mayer!

    And … she sings. Yes, this is indeed the same Lauren Mayer of The Political Carnival fame! She's graciously agreed to let us post her highly hilarious musical satirizations and observations here at Laffy's Place at Radio or Not as well, and more tickled I could not be to have the pleasure of introducing her. Lauren's description of this week's 'tribute' to 50 Shades of Grey: The Real Reason Behind the Success of "50 Shades Of Triple Crap" The runaway success of these books (and now the movie based on the first one) could be seen as a sign [...]
