Sad news: Chuck Berry has died at age 90. That’s a damn good run. Rock on, Chuck.

    Matthew Dowd‏Verified account @ matthewjdowd 6h6 hours ago
    Trump got 46.1% of the vote, right after inaugural he had 46% approval. Today he has 40% approval. So he has lost 15% of his voters so far.

    dowd is one of those who helped Bush get elected, then spent the Obama years simpering about how divisive our politics have somehow become, right? There are three or four of them I think.

    @Jim, Foolish Literalist: Dowd can’t do the maths. Trump got 46.1% of the vote from the people who showed up to vote. National opinion polls aren’t limited to voters in the last election.

    Living til 90, helping create Rock ‘n Roll, and releasing one’s last album at 89, is definitely a good run.

    Every musician of note has been poignantly remembering Chuck Berry on Twitter. What a catalogue of work he had. Father of Rock ‘n Roll feels not overstated.

    And that dialogue cartoon of the Leader of the Free World and Trump is brilliant. Read it probably two dozen times. Love it every time.

    When my nephew was quite little, from the age of two to five, but decreasing slowly after that, he was OBSESSED with dinosaurs. Not so uncommon in little kids, but he was really off the charts about it. One day when he was four we were having a conversation during which he explained to me how he manipulated his parents by how far he stuck out his lower lip. Then out of the blue he said, “I want to talk about dinosaurs.”

    Too many times now when the subject of President Circus Peanut comes up, I say to myself, “I want to talk about dinosaurs.”

    And since the fucking Delta flight attendants couldn’t be arsed to bring me an ice pack after I asked for one, I am now laying flat on my back at the gate with my foot up on the chairs waiting for the harried gate attendant to call First Aid so I can get a goddamned ice pack.

    @Certified Mutant Enemy: There’s no question that really shitty things happen to good people…and to bad. But I look at it like this*: If, when we pass from this mortal realm, we go to join the universe in whatever manner that may be, what was that tragedy that befell us in our physical life? In the universe entire galaxies collide, huge meteors may be destroying all life on a distant planet as I type, but on the scale of the infinite, it is a pittance, even less than that. In the universe new stars are born, new life springs up on young planets, and what wonders may be occurring in other dimensions? We are too small to judge whether the universe is fair, cruel, benevolent, or insensate.

    “The gateway from freedom, I was told, was somewhere near New Orleans where most Africans were sorted through and sold” into slavery, Berry wrote in his self-titled 1987 memoir. “I’d been told my grandfather lived ‘back up in the woods among the evergreens’ in a log cabin. I revived the era with a story about a ‘colored boy named Johnny B. Goode.’ ”

    Berry said he knew the song could have a wider appeal. “I thought it would seem biased to my white fans to say ‘colored boy’ so I changed it to ‘country boy,’ ” he added.

    Last couple of days is where this Trump shit gets scary. Ol’ oilman Rex goes to South Korea and makes what is a de facto major policy announcement that we will actively consider a preemptive attack on North Korea if they continue on current path (sure, that is always ‘on the table’ but to pointedly remind people about that, is a de facto policy announcement). Then he talks like a dope and cuts the trip short. This morning I hear Trump blather on the radio. He thinks Germany is cheating us in some trade deal that doesn’t exist, he doesn’t understand how NATO is financed, and talks like a penny ante extortion bag man about raising our protection fee. Yeesh.

    Too many important institutions could get wrecked, Too much stuff wrecked. Too many people could die.

    This idiot is president. I don’t know what people can do. I guess keep scaring the crap out of the nearest GOP Congresscrud over 2018 and 2020 elections by contacting them telling them you are gong to personally do something to make sure they are out of their cush job after the next election. Hope they get scared enough to impeach or reign him in.

    Edit: And Ol’ Rex blathers about cutting State Dept. funding good news since we won’t need State Dept, since there will be fewer wars, while the US ramps up military spending and threatens war. Fucking idiot doesn’t know what he’s doing.

    Villago Delenda Est says:

    @germy: I suspect that Chuck knew that “colored boy” would trigger rejection by radio station managers fearful of offending pristine white ears in the late Jim Crow era, and “country boy” would not. The fans just rocked out to the tune, and the lyrics were secondary.

    @efgoldman:

    I don’t know. When I worked for the Canadian Consulate I could usually get a diplomatic waiver, but it was a complicated process. Mnemosyne would probably have to leave the secure area. And I’d have to check the MARTA schedule to make sure I could get back before tomorrow morning. Even if I left right this minute to go to the nearest MARTA station, it would be at least 11:30 before I managed to get to the airport. It’s probably not the best idea, but maybe Mnem can phone me and vent a bit, which would be fine.

    I’ve been looking at the dogs on the Humane Society website and I may head west to Buffalo tomorrow to see this little girl. I’m still feeling very ambivalent about adopting another dog. There are so many that need a home, and I could provide one, but I keep flip flopping on the pros and cons. Ellie has been down and maybe having a new friend will perk her up. But she’ll lose this one too, eventually. Should I get a younger dog? Should I not adopt anyone and concentrate on Ellie for a while? I don’t know.

    Can not recall, I’ll have to check it out.

    @debit:
    I was looking for a cat when I ran across Bud the cocker spaniel at a rescue org in the bay area. One of the best things I ever did was let him take care of me for a while. All I had to do was feed, walk and groom him. Such a deal.

    @FlipYrWhig: I think he and Seth Moulton may prove a bit further to the right for the comfort of a lot of people here, but neither strikes me as crazy or flat out stupid.

    @Jim, Foolish Literalist: I think they are a bit further left than you would think.

    ETA: A friend of mine who I am surprised is a Dem not a Green and lives in Salem was posting fanboi stuff about Moulton for a year before the election.

    @debit: It sounds like you’re going to go see her – good! I’m a firm believer that there should be some spark of connection when adopting a pet. Our first dog, “Colleen”, was very sweet and extremely submissive when we saw her in the shelter (rolled over on her back and peed), but I heard her bark once at us when she saw us taking another dog out. (That was the only bark we heard out of her for weeks afterwards.) She picked us.

    Maybe Kelpie will pick you too. :-) If not, don’t feel bad. Your next one is out there and will find you when it’s time.

    Good luck!

    Cheers,
    Scott.

    @Omnes Omnibus: Moulton was on the Obama Bros’ podcast last week and some of the things he said about foreign policy sounded a bit interventionist to me, a bit too much in line with those who think military force can resolve things, but it was all pretty vague and I might well be wrong

    Omnes Omnibus says:

    @Jim, Foolish Literalist: I tend liberal interventionist anyway.

    @Villago Delenda Est: Calvin Klein? I thought Chuck Berry got the idea of rock and roll from Marty McFly.

    @Jacel: (Marty was wearing Calvin Klein jeans, and they thought that was his name…)

    Still no pin point asteroid strike that wipes out the Trumpian gene pool.

    Next week marks the 2 month mourning period for the Death of the American Republic.

    I miss having a government that works and was not secretly trying to get us all killed for short term profits.

    @TenguPhule: it’s really not a secret, is it? They are pretty openly mocking everyone. Drumpfs “budget”, the no health care bill, ECT…and their reasoning for these things is just >< this short of openly telling everyone to f off and die.

    Just to close the loop — made it safely back to LA, almost three hours late. Am currently laying on the couch with an ice pack on my knee before I go to bed.

    @Mnemosyne: We expect traveling pics. Welcome back; good luck with the knee. Am sure the nieces will remember their trip forever.

    @Felonius Monk:
    That’s amazing that you remember that performance and still have that original record! Your generation (I’m a twilight millennial having been a designated early 90’s baby) is as much a catalyst to that irreconcilable (musical) history as the artist themselves ate. What an incredible iconoclast to rock & roll we just lost!
