America is so full of nuts, literally and figuratively, it's a wonder you can find yourselves, let alone know what Canadians do to entertain themselves.

True. I no longer recognize the joint. The asshats and jugheads are running everything. And the handwringers and crybabies seem to chart the course/set the tone and let the rest of us know “what’s funny” anymore (nothing, basically).

I have never ignored, and mocked so many people at once, in my life. “Is there anyone sane left I can talk to/check with? Oh, they left too? When does Prime Minister Kanye return from his mental meltdown/apology tour? I’d like to leave a message for his exalted highness…wait, he does know how to read, right? And I assume it’s somehow my fault if not?”

This is the answer to all narcissistic behavior. Everything bad that happens is someone else's fault, from the alarm "not going off" to being late for work, to not making enough money, to your duck lips pout not being sad/happy/sexy enough, to the fat on your ass not being recognized as BOMB.com!

In most countries, narcissism is left to the ruling elite whilst the masses toil away for endless hours in the sun with a whip at their backs.

For the first world, narcissism becomes society.

It’s just funny/interesting to me how Instagram has single-handedly convinced so many regular, average people that they’re suddenly atomic-level sex objects, because they know how to work their smartphone’s front camera and apply a few unnatural-looking filters.

The joke has always been, “dude, wait until you see her without all the makeup.”

Now it’s “wait ‘til you see an unfiltered selfie. Go ahead and start your car now, trust me.”

I never know what to believe. I’ll never do the online/strangers stuff anyway. Too open to dishonest, tricky and false pretenses. When people(?) send me DMs or pics now, I just delete/block. Especially when they don’t say anything, which, to me, kinda comes off as “hey, I know you’ll be so smitten by my pic, I don’t need to say anything!”, which I find highly obnoxious/vain/shallow.

You ain’t all that, sweetpea. I can see where the pixels distort/blend. If you truly had those cheekbones/eyes you’d be off in some exotic land, being a model, and not bothering schmos like me, unsolicited, on the Internet. Bug off already. I ain’t that hard up or desperate. I never am.

To myself, I say this.

Who knew that open-carrying MAGA midget Laurent Boebert could be such a fun time out at the theater?

Vaping, groping dick, letting herself get groped, singing, dancing, getting tossed out for acting like a horny teen on prom night, etc.

Who knew? And, thank goodness It wasn't that one from Georgia with the blond hair. If we can keep it to brunette lawmakers in the midwest/Rocky Mountain states, we should manage to keep our lunches down. Does Kristi Noem enjoy the theater? Let's find out!

Alas, Bobert's crybaby, lip-quivering apology tour will begin any hour now, where she'll proceed to blame it all on stress, prescription medication, gun oil fumes, the thimble of wine she drank before leaving home, etc. and promise to never do it again, which isn't what I want to hear, being completely honest.

I just love the sequence.

Video of the vaping comes out, so she apologizes. She thinks the issue is closed.

Then someone leaks the rest of the video with her boytoy playing left-loosy-righty-tighty with her bolted-on titties.

What's tomorrow? Traffic cam footage of her giving the guy road head on the drive home?

At the very least. Yeah, it’s been something new/bigger every day, with her “apologizing” and acting like that’s it. You know damn well it isn’t. We’ve not seen the worst/craziest. You can just tell. She’s probably holding her breath, knowing the releases have just scratched the surface.

She also knows, as a Trump-loving Republican, there will be no support, fair shake or positive light/spin coming from the “press” in her favor or anything held back or re-edited to her benefit. After all, she isn’t AOC. There will be no circling of wagons or running interference on her behalf. She’ll probably beat them to the punch and jump on something tomorrow, getting in front of another tawdry escapade.

“You’re not gonna believe this, but there I was, just kinda minding my own business, when all of a sudden…”

I’d have more respect/understanding for her if, for once, a public figure just copped to real feelings/urges/behavior. “I’m going through a divorce, I’m horny as hell, this seemed like a fun night out. It isn’t a fire-able offense, bug off. If I was a Kardashian or Madonna, you’d be giving me the Medal of Freedom and one of those Kennedy Center honors/evenings, ffs. I’ll knock it off with the hypocrisy if you will.”

The more she tries to apologize/make excuses, the lamer it’ll be and the more like a PR robot she’ll sound. Embrace your inner-freak/cock-hound, baby. Any young, attractive liberal/Democrat colleague certainly would, receiving praise, acclaim (and book deals) from doing so.

Throw everyone a curve. “This young Republican is as much of a boy-crazy horndog as anyone else can be. Damn right I was all over that schlong. What are you gonna do?” I regret/apologize only for my timing and venue/location. Deal with it.”



Give the press, and your political foes, nowhere to go. The cover-up/hiding/lying is always worse/more off-putting than the initial offense/action. Haven’t any famous people learned this by now?

“I would’ve apologized/released a statement sooner, but I kinda had something in my mouth!” Play it that way and the “scandal” aspect is diffused immediately. Act like a prude or “above it all” at your own peril and the drawing out of a cheesy, low-rent political scandal that wouldn’t phase a Clinton.

Speaking of which, is Bill in Colorado tonight, offering support/advice? Sure, you know he hopped a flight ASAP. Haha. “This young woman needs counseling and a supportive ear! I’ll be back in 2-9 days, Hill…”.

Nah, they know. Nobody thinks that. I mean, there’s that bonehead sliver who thinks everything is a fake/conspiracy (flat earth, moon landing, Elvis runs the DEA out of the Bat Cave, etc.

The only thing is, her alliances (DJT, MTG) and past behavior (disruptive fuckwittery, moronic chanting at the State of the Union Address with the blonde George horse-face) won’t be helping her. The press will release anything and everything they fine, and paint her in the worst light possible. They’re not her friends, and, by this point, she should know better than think they are/expecting them to be. Which is why going on “The View” isn’t the approach. She won’t be coddled or given the “you go, girl!” treatment like others would. But $5 says she shows up there and endures the passive-aggressive snark from Joy Behar and Whoopi, who are real selective in their outrage, support of women (Boebert has the wrong letter beside her name, ensuring she gets none from those cackling hens and professional bickerers and “gotcha!” artisans.

Best thing Boebert could do is do it all again, while smiling/waving to the camera(s). She’s gonna get hounded/maligned half to death, so she may as well control/enjoy what she can at this point.

I know she’ll tearfully announce her resignation before long. No, of course it makes no sense, but she knows how bumpy and unrelenting of a ride she’s in for. In a true display of graceless arrogance, Trump and his clown car crew will reach out to her to let her know she’s a liability/distraction to the second coming of His Exalted Cheeto-ness (imagine that, Trump hammering someone else for the very thing he himself is every day his eyes open and he rolls his fat ass out of his gold bed).

“Yes, Donnie…some flaky congresswoman in Colorado nobody knows is the reason for all your problems/negative polling and the reason your campaign might suffer. Nothing you’ve done or said, of course, Mr. Executive Mugshot.”

These people all deserve each other. The blind leading the jugheaded. At the very least, Combover-in-Chief should invite her out for a night of musical theater.

“Melania likes to be in bed, passed out from several prescriptions by 7pm, so whaddya say, Lauren? Put on that little gold sparkly dress and leave your panties here at home. Let’s implode/wreck both our careers tonight!”

Aim high, people.

Oh, she's toast (to me). I just saw theater footage where she was bouncing around in her seat, so you know that's annoying. And then she pulls out a phone and is taking flash-based selfies.

NO!!!

Anyone doing that around me at the Cinerama 18 is already on deck for an ass whipping. Suck a dick, light up, whatever. What you DON'T do is pull your stupid iPhone out and start snapping pics (with the flash one). That's the worst thing about all this to me. That's the one offense/infraction I can't overlook or be okay with. Hahaha.

Everyone around here, shoulder to shoulder, directly in front and behind, said/did nothing.

I would've turned around, yanked her iPhone from her and said "you'll get it back when the show is over...bug off, child."

In that theater footage, it was like watching some 17-year-old high school chick just going out of her way to be an obnoxious, annoying twat to everyone around her. What adult does this?! At what point did she think "I'm going to act like an entitled brat, do everything weird/wrong (vape, sing/dance loudly, grope/be groped) and see if anything comes of it?"

You people in Colorado have some shit to answer for. What's wrong with you? You elect a (possibly retarded) Hooter's waitress (if that) to represent you?

Seriously, that's just some next-level detached, immature stuff. How could such a person be acting with YOUR best interests/concerns at heart? She's too busy being an obnoxious "tee-hee" party girl (no doubt thinking it's cute/endearing, if she's snapping selfies of it).

It's official...I can't stand this woman now, seeing her act that way.

I’ve seen so called adults do this kind of crap. One summer when I was young I worked in a regional park, along a river channel. People came down with huge jugs of beer or vodka, smoked just about every substance you can name, and did all kinds of stupid stuff, from that kind of thing to, well worse. This was a public beach, with sometimes a few hundred people. Movies, i didn’t go during peak times, so it was usually quiet.

Hey now, she was voted in by the western part of the state. That place is fucken weird.

She got elected in the same election in which Colorado voted to reintroduce wolves. The running joke is that the Western Slope voted to send Boebert to Congress so the Front Range voted to send wolves to the Western Slope.

Also, her boytoy owns a gay bar in Aspen which hosts drag queen events.

What a goddamn hypocrite.

I saw that yesterday and decided not to wade into it because it would've just blown up in my straight face. Haha.

Yeah, wasn't Boebert one of the people freaking out about drag shows a while back? Now she's seeing/banging a guy who has a direct role in putting them on in their area. Maybe she had a change of thinking? Perhaps a recent, long conversation with 6'3" (7'8" with the hair) Clitty McVixen gave her a new perspective on it all?

I'm gonna hold off on any "hypocrite" stuff, unless/until she has another gay/drag-show wig-out. "Hey, you were skiing with one pole the other night, with a guy who runs one of these places. Are you okay with it or not?"

She's doing everything weird/wrong when it comes to addressing a scandal. She's giving her enemies (and, as a Trumper, she's got plenty) too many places to dig and look. She needs to blow their minds with complete honesty and confession. Diffuse, pre-explode any bombs before they find them (because they'll set them up to explode as loudly and messy as possible, she knows this). When they have nowhere to go and nothing to "a-HA...GOTCHA!" with, they'll shut up and move on to something/someone else. That's just how the modern "press" works. They only deal in scandal, partisan gamesmanship and political landmines (there's no real investigation or true "journalism" going on at the network or cable outlets, give me a break). Don't give those tacky clowns the satisfaction of wrecking your career/reputation over a bit of titty-and-dick groping and R-rated behavior, when, in 2023, it wouldn't wreck anyone else's.

Who cares if she loses the support of the fat Cheeto and his deranged light beer-triggered minions. Isn't that a good thing? She's gonna wish she did, before everyone she knows winds up in the joint, wearing orange or stripes by the holidays.

I'd consider it a proud moment if that unhinged clown ass publicly parted ways with me, withdrew his support, didn't ask for/expect mine and just kinda forgot I exist. "Good, maybe I don't have to get processed/mug-shotted now too, or worse!". Nothing good comes from knowing that boorish meathead or being part of his hardcore support network. You're just gonna wind up arrested for something, at some point. That's all that's really ever happened thus far. Don't think it won't/can't again. There will be plenty of January 6-esque "opportunities" and scenarios in the coming years, as long as that idiot is on the scene/in the mix.

Anyway, I'm guessing she's ultimately headed for OnlyFans at this point, no matter what.

Bill is already asking Hillary for his VISA card back (she's kept it in a cave in Bolivia, guarded by armed donkeys and cartel gunmen, in recent years).

"Naw, honey...I just wanna make some online bets on a few upcomin' games."

And if Bill Clinton, by some miracle, doesn't show up and get in the middle of all this, then look for Eliot Spitzer or Anthony Weiner to.

"I've always believed in reaching across party lines to grope 'dem titties, I mean, to set aside our political differences and work together for the American people [hold for applause that probably isn't coming]..."

I've heard that the Republicrats are having their biggest sale ever on blinders. Apparently, each party will pay you to wear them.

With the most idiotic election sequence in the history of our country right on the horizon, and with that sequence positively loaded with corrupt candidates, I cannot think of a better time for such a great sale! I suggest that all Americans order their blinders by the baker's dozen so they can safely stand on their platform of choice without having to recognize or admit that the evil they're voting for isn't any "less" evil than the other side.

Well, they've always been that way. It's just that now we have Twitter, Tik-Tok, and YouTube to tell the masses which conspiracies to believe, and which crook "has their back". Fortunately, these platforms make sure that both sides have plenty of lies to believe.

I truly can’t understand how/why people get all dewy-eyed and quiver-lipped over this nonsense. Putting all their faith/support into mental patients who deliberately decided to enter the worst occupation/wrestling ring in existence. My general rule of thumb has been “anyone actually vying for the gig, spending money they don’t have to land it, automatically disqualified themselves.

You don’t want someone who wants the gif to actually get it. It means they’re a power/attention-mad dope and you/your life aren’t gonna be anywhere near the top of their concerns/list of things to make better.

All politicians/elected officials can do is help move some of the obstacles out of the way, so motivated, driven people can’t chart their path a little easier. Anyone voting for somebody based on “what they can give me” is moron and doing it wrong. You don’t want to be owing any of those types. Ideall, a politician shouldn’t know you even exist.

“He/she cares about me!” should be something never said/thought by a grown, adult human of voting age. Grow up, already. No, they don’t. I promise.

Yes, my view of this whole racket is exceedingly grim. Why shouldn’t it be? Nobody, either side, is going to DC to “change things”. They couldn’t anyway, at this point. And putting ugly signs in your yard is the strongest sign you’ve lost your mind.

Given the absurd history of the F-35 they probably found out that one of the umpteen-thousand contractors used silly putty to assemble the landing gear or something.

Um, I doubt they can blame the contractors on this one. The U.S. military lost track of a $70 million plane, and asked for public's help to find it.

Don't worry, even if they knew you existed, they wouldn't care. Anything beyond their own nose is too far out of reach for them.

Isn't life a joy, I kind of figured this out before I was even a teenager, our family is full of news junkies, but in my youthful days I was a little more optimistic. Not that anyone has ever called me that.
