This gets even better in the video — and it’s the opposite of Trumpy.

First, if you haven’t toured the Donald J. Trump Presidential Library —  which some consider to be a stylishly done razor sharp parody, but those results aren’t yet certified — click the above link!

On the darker side of things, check out this piece on how an increasingly desperate Trump may wreak havoc for the next two months.

I’ve also dug up a story about the closest recent precursor to Trumpism — which is usually credited (over his denial) to Dick Cheney — to remind us of when we starting falling off of the cliff..

And to end on a brighter note: watch this delightful video from Brazil about the best Covid-protection masks you may ever see.

(We may add to this list, so keep checking this post every five minutes.  OJB is not responsible for the consequences.)

This is your Weekend Open Thread; talk about that, or whatever you’d like, within reasonably bounds of decorum and discretion.

 


About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 (in violation of Roberts Rules) when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Expelled from DPOC in October 2018 (in violation of Roberts Rules) for having endorsed Spitzer over Rackauckas -- which needed to be done. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level, nor do they now. One of his daughters co-owns a business offering campaign treasurer services to Democratic candidates and the odd independent. He is very proud of her. He doesn't directly profit from her work and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he truly hated.) He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
