Would and Wouldn’t

I think that the person who wrote this piece for Jimmy Kimmel’s late night show deserves a raise, if not an Emmy.  I’m glad to share it.

As to Trump’s incomprehensible mention of double-negatives, the double-negative we are most familiar with is Trump himself.  Again, elections matter.  Don’t sit on your hands or in front of your screens, thinking that nothing will change no matter what you do.  Rather, act to preserve your future, because you are in the best position to do so and you have the most at stake.  Open your eyes and vote accordingly this fall and every election.

I spent over an hour today listening to Barack Obama deliver the 2018 Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in Johannesburg, South Africa.  I cannot tell you how refreshing it was, hearing an American voice of reason and hope and cooperation, a leader who expressed our best ideals rather than appealing to our worst natures.

Wouldn’t you like a return to reason?  Wouldn’t you like a return to sanity?  I would.

    We all need to talk to everyone we know to get them to register to vote if they are not and get them to vote !!!
    Elections do matter. At least I think they will this time unless he decides that it’s fake and illegal aliens did all the voting

    Hey buddy –

    Yep, I surely will enjoy a return to sanity: let’s all act locally, voting in every election possible, from the school board up through the county commissioners, into our state reps, and especially for our federal ones. But let’s not forget to listen those on the other side, who might have legit reasons for voting as they have done in the past.

    It’s a great time to be a political satirist, as Kimmel, Colbert and Andy Borowitz at the New Yorker (and you!) have shown us – it’s good to have some humor out there, n’est-ce-pas? Otherwise, things would be completely unrelenting Orwellian and Bizarro World.

    Thanks for this,

    Your pal,

    This is great. Grover does a fine job on the explanation too. Trump might even understand it if they would ever feature it on Fox & Friends. Thanks also for the link to Obama’s Mandela lecture. Betty and I meant to watch that so I added it to my YouTube watch list. Even watching him just now for a few minutes gives me hope that the arc of the Mueller universe still bends toward justice. I just wish it would bend a little faster. Oops, I meant moral universe.

    At this point, I don’t which is worst: 45’s demented stupidity or that of so many of his rabid followers? Seriously, what do his supporters see in him?
