My agonizing tune-in to Saturday Night Live, a walking-dead NBC-TV corpse whose funny bone pretty much rotted away years ago, directed me to the "news" segment, often held together with the equivalent of juvenile fart jokes instead of the biting satire once proudly displayed.
I knew that Kanye West had been censored the previous week for his pro-Trump statements, so how much of a surprise could it have been when so-called funnyman Pete Davidson (Or is that Davison? I can't be bothered to duckduckgo.com it.) broke into a rant about Kanye's mental state? Pete D. can be humorous, but as time goes on and he, like so many others in the entertainment industry, becomes part of the very establishment they bitch about, his horse-faced routine chastising a Trump supporter doesn't fly very far among brains broken free of ever more crazy leftist indoctrination. But, oh, oh, oh, they will enjoy TV rating scores among the rest.
However, there's something else I learned from watching SNL last weekend: The Democrats are scared to death. The "blue wave" may well become instead a black-and-blue wave, and the left can no longer easily hoodwink a large willing audience with smoke and mirrors. Not enough Hollywood glitter to sprinkle about. No sparkle in the campaign literature. Ouch.
As days passed, the testimony of Professor Christine Ford began to sink into one's memory banks as convincingly as far more illustrious platitudes mouthed by the once-famous comedian, "Professor" Irwin Corey, he of late night talk show visits, attired in sneakers and essentially making so sense at all despite vigorous questioning put up against his rambling dialogue.
With the confirmation of everybody's favorite alleged rapist-sans-evidence Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, it's only a matter of time before another SC Justice either retires or "buys the farm" while sitting in the can some night. In fact, it's not unlikely that the Court will swing so far to the right in the next couple of years that leftists may well experience spontaneous human combustion every time one of their perpetually stupid pieces of legislation gets overturned.
We neither support nor suggest the thought that scare-stick Roe vs. Wade be overturned (though a little more attention to birth control prior to those romantic moments would be a really, really good idea), but mobs of zombies solicited by the left see only a dark opportunity to sink their teeth into anything ensnaring power for the radical element.
By some unknown process or miracle, the GOP actually grew gonads to achieve a goal and overcome the chronic obstructionists this time around. That Senators Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins and others found the strength to emerge from the cobwebbed catacombs of chronic Republican petrification to fight and win boggles the mind, perhaps enough to make even George Soros shudder.
