Tidbits And Cat Treats: Wild Week Edition
Even we cats are willing to admit that these days, the political news is nuts. We could devote entire blog posts to any one of these stories, but because there are only so many hours in a day, we'll make do with the following pithy comments instead:
Wow, Colin Powell is such a disher! While we obviously agree with him that Donald Drumpf is a national disgrace, and that Drumpf's birtherism is racist, we're pretty amazed at how bitchy the rest of Powell's hacked emails are. We'd just like to get it on the record that even after 33,000 messages were turned over in her nonexistent "scandal," Hillary Clinton's emails weren't nearly as snarky. In fact, they weren't snarky at all. Just sayin'.
We also want to smugly observe that many, many people have stepped forward to confirm our original observation that Clinton — and millions of American women — tend to power through illnesses instead of going home to bed. Just like we cats do, actually. (We know there are predators out there.)
Meanwhile, more basket cases: We're not sure why the Trumpsters are still trying to make hay out of Secretary Clinton's "deplorables" comment when their deplorables continue to pop up left and right. Turns out there was violence both inside and outside the Trump event in Asheville, North Carolina, on Monday — thus proving Clinton's point. (Except we'd describe a Trump guy punching a 69-year-old, oxygen-tank-toting woman in the face as despicable as well as deplorable.)
We don't know what to say about Trump's bizarre "Dr. Oz" spectacle unless it's to wonder why he doesn't just release his medical records AND his tax returns instead of staging these silly side shows. Also, Hillary's doctor is the real deal while Trump's doc is, um, weird.
Finally, goodness gracious — can it really be almost a year since Canada gave Stephen Harper the boot? Time just races by when your approval ratings skyrocket. And Donald Drumpf, take note: Justin Trudeau is earning high numbers in one of the world's great democracies — not that failed petrostate called Russia that you admire so much. We cats PURR.
