We Were So Young and Innocent Then

Seems like only yesterday when the GOP was all upset because the Kenyan usurper had relaxed the dress code to feel more comfortable in his tribal attire:

CARD: I found that Ronald Reagan and both President Bushes treated the Oval Office with tremendous respect. They treated the Office of the Presidency with tremendous respect. And some of that respect was reflected in how they expected people to behave, how they expected them to dress when they walked into the symbol of freedom for the world, the Oval Office. And yes, I’m disappointed to see the casual, laissez faire, short sleeves, no shirt and tie, no jacket, kind of locker room experience that seems to be taking place in this White House and the Oval Office.

Life comes at you fast:

Why, I remember when salty language like that was left to the vulgar bloggers and could even get you banned from cable television (google Marci Wheeler and “blowjob.”).

Enough reminiscing, I have a long drive to the beach tomorrow.

    I posted this in an earlier thread, but it’s more appropriate here:

    All the Italian-American groups that protested “The Sopranos” or “Jersey Shore” for their negative stereotypes of Italian-Americans are going to end up calling out Trump for hiring the bastard child of Christopher Moltisanti and The Situation as his communications director, right?

    I read the Lizza write up earlier this evening when I got home. If the White House Special Security Officer doesn’t order Scaramucci in for a urinalysis for drug screening ASAP something is very, very wrong.

    But he was nicely dressed in a suit and tie so he was not debasing the oval orifice.

    Guys like Scaramucci make me think seriously about giving up cursing. You know, I think, “Holy fuck Goodness gracious, do I sound like that?”

    And I remember people turning around and finding plenty of pictures of Reagan and both Bushes wearing exactly the same kinds of clothes, without any apparent effect on the Republican response. It’s tribal, and they aren’t going to change their response now.

    Trump is president. We already know something is very, very wrong in the White House.

    Priebus was shivving people in DC before Scaramucci made his first insider trade. This should be interesting.

    So, basically, this doesn’t end until everyone in the White House is as insane and vulgar as Trump, yes?

    I do love that the Trump White House has finally attracted a pure courtier, a man with no political goals other than to gain wealth and power sucking up to the president. The kind of idiotic, hyperbolic praise and declarations of loyalty that anyone else would see as pathetic attempts to suck up, Trump thinks are his just due. Then the knives come out for the competition.

    The biggest mark in America has attracted his first true grifter. I doubt Scammer Mariachi will be the last.

    I remember like it was yesterday when autofellation in all its glory was pretty much confined to the murkier confines of Reddit and genuine porn sites. And now its everywhere-sometime with pics.
    Alas alack how fast the world do move.

    @Felonius Monk: Suspect that was a joke about recruiting Peschi. Note Odonnel later reminding folks that Peschi kiss basically retired from performing .

    Would be even funnier if he brought on Fran Drescher, more on the mark if he snagged Christoper Walken.

    The White House has a Special Security Officer? This White House? The one which let Russians just waltz in unattended?
