A long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away), Master Yoda told us that the future was always in motion. It was true then, and it’s true now. We make changes with the times. For example, my Yankees baseball twitter is now Angry Cucumber, a gourd with a furious appetite for democracy. Follow along with the Choleric Cucurbitaceae on Twitter!
I’m old enough to remember when lying about an extramarital affair was grounds for impeachment. These days, you can violate the constitution and collaborate with foreign saboteurs and we have to argue over whether a special prosecutor is needed.
I have high hopes for the 21st Century – let’s all get together and right the ship!
So here’s the thing:
George Foreman went on Fox and Friends and voiced his support for President Trump. On February 4th. After he took office and… you know, did many awful things. I’m not the world’s biggest George Foreman fan, and maybe I shouldn’t be too surprised that the guy who had five sons AND NAMED THEM ALL AFTER HIMSELF let me down… anyway, I took to Twitter to let him know how I feel.
That question mark in the title of this post will begin making sense in just a second. Read the rest of this entry
A historic day in an unprecedented time. Local news agencies report that about 400,000 people participated and there were zero arrests.
Congratulations, America. You just elected the first president EVER with no political or military experience. I’m sure this’ll go great. With that in mind, here’s a rundown of things I learned from the 2016 election of Donald Trump.

After my first Hunger Games The Fallen + Republican Presidential Primary video, I had to step up my game for JEB.
See the Republican Primary Fallen in a Hunger Games format. Obviously.
This offends both Christians and comedy fans by politicizing a high holy day and doing so in such an unfunny manner.

CNN brought the thirteen (yes, there is still an unwieldy baker’s dozen) Republican Presidential Candidates to Las Vegas last night for the fifth debate in an effort to give Chris Christie an up close view at profitable casinos. Here’s what went down. Read the rest of this entry
Last time on Anybody But Jeb!, we saw Donald Trump cement his standing as the Randle McMurphy of the stage while Scott Walker’s performance pushed his numbers from “legitimate candidate” to “one of several people we’re just waiting to drop out.” Did episode 2 change anything for these candidates? And did Jeb do well enough to get his numbers to start swinging toward the two front-runners? Keep in mind that the series finale episode of Anybody But Mitt! was called, “Meh, Let’s Just Go With Mitt.” Read the rest of this entry
The Republican Party’s Southern Strategy or How the GOP Spent 50 Years Paving the Way for Donald Trump
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back when, it was the Democrats who were all White Supremacy and “Down with Lincoln!” and so on. (President Lincoln was a Republican if you’re keeping score at home.) After World War II, southern Democrats said, “That’s enough of that” and began supporting civil rights. Well, except sweethearts like George Wallace (LEFT IN ABOVE PHOTO – he’s the guy that famously tried to block school segregation as seen in Forrest Gump, the only history lesson most people ever paid attention to) who went on to run for President as an independent in 1968. And this, my friend, is when the stage began to be set for Donald Trump’s rise in the polls. Read the rest of this entry
