it’s going to be beautiful


Superlative in Chief is in the home stretch of his re-election campaign, and these final laps are going to be the greatest finish ever seen since the beginning of time, regardless of the outcome.

If you don’t believe it, just ask trumpty dumpty (not original but I wish I had thought of it) who sat on a wall perched for a fall.

Covid, covid, covid – the vaccine is on the way – what’s the big deal? It’s going to be the greatest vaccine ever invented by the most brilliant medicine men in the entire universe which includes millions of Star Trek galaxies our prominent new Space Force will explore forever and ever.

Who cares that more than 225,000 Americans have died in that fake news story? If it weren’t for my amazing Coronavirus Task Force led by my – who did I say led that anyway? – more than a million Americans would have died by now. That’s right. More than a million if not for my leadership and appointing that  – who did I appoint for the most fabulous leadership in the history of the world other than me, of course?

Oh Mike, the guy with the fly in his hair. I always said he was a loser.

********************

I never knew I could be this tired of superlatives, but then I’ve never had a president whose entire method of communication consisted of superlatives mastered in an elementary private school.

Clearly my endorsements of Joe Biden for President, Kamala Harris for Vice President and Jaime Harrison for Senator from South Carolina  are the most stupendous recommendations of my lifetime. I can’t wait for this election to be over next week, but I will gladly wait for all the votes to be counted.

It’s going to be beautiful.

Stay safe, stay sane, stay tuned and please VOTE as if our democracy depends on it. That would be correct.

    It’ll be so beautiful if he loses by a landslide. And then he can pack his bags for Russia, North Korea, or prison. I don’t care as long as he goes and takes his mob family with him.
