Utter failure of a former House Speaker provides worthless opinion

Cryin' John Boehner claims that Trump's presidency has been "a disaster", so far.

Well, life always looks a little gloomier when viewed through the bottom of a shot glass. Somebody ought to pour Boehner into a cab and send him home.

Me, I'm with Kurt Schlichter, who says Trump is doing great at the main thing he was elected to do: not be Hillary Clinton.

What to think

If you haven't been watching the news lately, you may have lost track of "The Narrative". Not to worry: Paco Enterprises is here to help you get on board with acceptable progressive opinion.

Republican political candidate body-slams pushy reporter days before an election. He should, and, based on current polls, probably will lose the election [Update: Damn! He won anyway!] He deserves to be imprisoned for at least a decade, and have an "R" carved on his forehead with a shiv.

Self-styled "progressives" and "anarchists" attack peaceful Trump supporters. While lamentable (or, actually, maybe not), this is a normal reaction by the people to the illegitimacy of a Trump administration.

Members of Trump campaign team have conversations with various Russian officials. Anonymous sources claim collusion. Obviously, where there's smoke, there's fire, and Trump should be impeached (after a totally objective investigation by Obama-era holdovers).

Democratic candidate for president uses illegal personal server to conduct official government business in an attempt to avoid transparency and cover up financial self-dealing. Sounds like typical Republican misogyny to us.

Islamic terrorists set off yet another bomb and kill a score of innocents, many of them children. The biggest threat to peace is the anti-Islamic backlash (bound to happen any day now).

Islamic terrorists massacre a score of Coptic Christians in Egypt. Meh. Plus, the Crusades.

Happy Feet Friday

That great Chicago blues man, Otis Spann, stomps on it.

Blogging: light this week

Mrs. Paco had surgery on Monday to have some excess bone growth removed; it apparently was caused by her hip replacement surgery last November. That surgery went fine, but she started to grow more bone than needed and it was pushing into the muscle tissue (on the CT scan, the thing looked like a holster for a snub-nose .38, so it was causing her a lot of discomfort).

This most recent surgery went fine, but she has been in a considerable amount of pain, which the doctors were finally able to bring under control with some kind of pump that's attached to the affected area via a catheter and which injects a local anesthetic on a time-release plan.

Anyway, I'm out this week with limited access to the computer, so hope you all are having a good one. In my absence (and, for that matter, even when I'm not absent), I highly recommend a daily dose of Veeshir's cogitations over at DoublePlusUndead. You'll laugh, you'll cry, your blood will boil, and you'll come away both entertained and informed about our world's delirious descent into madness and stupidity.

Sunday funnies

An instructive game for millennials...




(From Powerline's "The Week in Pictures", as is the one below)





"Man sues woman for $17.31 movie ticket after bad date" (H/T: Mrs. Paco). Update: Happy (?) ending.

Hume Abedin finally gets whacked with a clue-by-four
