“He Puts the Pluto in Plutocrat”

“Tin Foil Hat” by Todd Rundgren and Donald Fagen. Lyrics via Down With Tyranny:

He’s coming down the escalator
With a girl from east of here
He wants to make the country greater
We’ve got nothing left to fear

Because the man in the tin foil hat
Is sitting on the throne tonight
It kinda feels like coup de tat
But it’s gonna be great, tremendous, amazing and all that

‘Cause the man in the tin foil hat
Is tweeting like a teenage girl
He puts the Pluto in plutocrat
It’s gonna be a yuge yuge yuge new world

He hasn’t got the time for losers
Unless they do as he commands
He’s writing checks to his accusers
With those tiny little hands

Because the man in the tin foil hat
Is sitting on the throne tonight
It kinda feels like coup de tat
But it’s gonna be a yuge yuge yuge new world

‘Cause the man in the tin foil hat
Is gonna drain the swamp tonight
And fill it with up with alternative facts
It’s gonna be great, tremendous, amazing and all that

‘Cause the man in the tin foil hat
Is tweeting like a teenage girl
He puts the Pluto in plutocrat
It’s gonna be a yuge yuge yuge new world

Because the man in the tin foil hat
Is sitting on the throne tonight
It kinda feels like coup de tat
It’s gonna be great, tremendous, amazing and all that.

Note that the poll was taken before the Comey firing, which may explain why neither “Russia” nor “impeachment” make the list.

Must be Reform

A friend writes,

Gathered with some friends last night to read the Megillah. This year we replaced the name of the villain Haman with “Donald” as we spun our groggers. Most satisfying.

Zero (0) South Florida Congresspersons are Having Town Halls This Week

That’s according to the Town Hall Project, which reports

There are no events within 75 miles of your zip, the closest one is 118 miles away.

That would be Brian Mast (Republican, FL-18). Good on him. Shame on the rest of them.

Laugh

Someone is holding a human spine next to Marco Rubio right now is funny.

But How to give your Member of Congress a spine is funnier–and you can do it from home.
