Poetic Justice

Et Tu, Bannon?

On Capitol Hill, the intrigue’s as thick as the Roman Senate.
If Trumpcare fails, Ryan loses, and for Bannon, that’s great.
So, in a sneak attack,
When Steve stabs Paul in the back,
It’s all for the goal of deconstructing the “administrative state.”

The -Istist of the -Ists

We thought Donald Trump was a capitalist,
But now we’re told he’s a populist nationalist.
With Priebus his wing man,
And Bannon his string man,
It’s no wonder the term rhymes with fascist.

Poetic Justice

Such a Chimera!

You probably will not believe us,
But at CPAC performed Bannon and Priebus.
One-half is alt-righter,
The other’s a liar,
And we prefer to call ’em Butthead and Beavis.

From the letter: “Millions of Americans have expressed fear and concern about how they will be treated by the Trump Administration and your appointment of Mr. Bannon only exacerbates and validates their concerns.”

Trump Campaign to Get Wilder, Crazier

If you thought the old Donald Trump campaign was wild and crazy, just wait for the new Trump campaign now that Breitbart’s Steve Bannon has taken over as chief executive. … The new leadership — with Bannon and pollster Kellyanne Conway displacing Paul Manafort of the Ukrainian Connection at the top of the heap — is likely to steer Trump even more in the direction of the European far right. It also tells you something that Bannon sees Sarah Palin, about whom he made a laudatory documentary, as a model for anti-establishment politics.

All I know is one of the worst people on God’s green earth was just instituted as the chairman and CEO of the Trump campaign. And if you are, as I am, not wanting to see Hillary Clinton in the White House, you need to seriously, seriously be concerned about that.
