My mother lost her husband and daughter within the same week in June. I promised her we'd do the best to have an amazingChristmas this year. Instead, I had to put my cat to sleep Christmas Eve. I'm so fucking over 2016, the idea of Donald Trump's nuclear winter actually sounds appealing.

commented on Potential Trump News Network Means Trump Might Never Go Away
If Trump were truly smart, he'd take a page out of L.Ron Hubbard's page book and set up a religion. We know his followers are gullible, he has a messianic complex, and he abhors paying taxes. Mix together and what do you have? Trump: the religion. My guess the gold cross he sees so many of his followers wearing he thinks stand for 'Trump.'
I'm picturing the scriptures now: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Shit is my daughter a fox trinity.

commented on Washington GOP Chair Claims Trump Was "Channeling Bill Clinton" During Comments about Groping Women
I actually heard the interview live. Before I knew this was Susan Hutchison being interviewed, I thought it must be some fringe Republican apologist. When I heard them say the name 'Susan' I still couldn't believe it. The tone of the interviewers was true incredulity. I honestly think they thought they were being punted, because it was all so surreal. I think Susan Hutchison took the chairmanship of the state GOP to give her a chance of running for office again, but honestly, I can't even imagine her showing her face in public again. It'll be like the final scene of Dangerous Liasons when Glenn Close's character is hissed at the opera.

commented on ST3 Is Great But It Will Not Correct the Effects of Seattle's Housing Crisis
Because we still have the subarea equity. Money raised in each sub-area has to be spent in that are. East King County has more tax base, hence Issaquah gets a light rail line. Honestly, I think this will fail, and Seattle may best be served providing our own transit. You may not be able to easily get to outlying areas, but we'd be able to get around town more efficiently.
