The Daily Combover - February 15, 2017

If there's anything we can learn from Star Wars, it's that celebrating even the most minor victories can really empower the Resistance.

Today I posted up a song by The Doors that includes the following lines:
The old get old 
And the young get stronger 
May take a week 
And it may take longer 
They got the guns 
But we got the numbers 
Gonna win, yeah 
We're takin' over 
Come on! 
Jim Morrison presumably was inspired by the war protesters when he came up with the idea for this song in 1967. 50 years later it's still relevant. And the continuous barrage of calls, letters, emails, protests, etc. has clearly had a major effect on the Senate.  DeVos may have become Secretary of Education but we've shown her that she has no room to enact her radical agenda.  Even stalwart Republicans like Senator Roy Blunt have been reacting to the pressure.

Remember that the #1 priority for any Republican politician is to funnel cash back to their donors in the form of tax cuts and subsidies. But #2 on their list is to stay in power. They can sense the voter backlash coming because they saw it happen in 2006. And the difference this time is that the Left is absolutely fired up. The energy was high in 2006 but we never saw crowds in the thousands, tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands. It's a new day. It's a new life. And now as Puzder gives up on his bid following the epic collapse of Trump's NSC, we do get to celebrate.

Time for the roll call of major departures this week:

First off, you knew him as the delinquent general that Obama fired for incompetence and now you know him as the 21st Century Benedict Arnold, it's Michael Flynn:

Next it's Flynn's hand-picked deputy, K.T. McFarland, no relation:

And that was followed shortly by Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy who seems to dearly miss his last boss:

Finally it's the pimp of the "Bikini Burger Babes" and known wife-beater, Andrew Puzder:

Enjoy the victories. And get ready because we're about to get really deep into the scandals from here on out now that the details on the Russian Involvement are starting to be verified.

And the Trump response is as you'd expect, disjointed, dishonest, and yet very revealing. First he blasts it as fake and as a cover-up for Secretary Clinton's campaign:

Then the snowflake emerges as he admits it actually isn't fake:

Then he blames President Obama:
And then finally, we hit full-on snowflake as he whines about leaks as being un-American. I wonder where that sentiment was when he was openly calling on Russia to hack Secretary Clinton's email? Or when he was praising Wikileaks? In the end, leaks are not illegal unless they are releasing classified information. Meaning Snowden and Wikileaks broke the law. Trump's White House staffers who are trying to cover their own butts are not committing any act of treason. And Trump should be pretty well versed in what constitutes treasonous acts.

But come on, would this face lie to you?

Catch you on the flip side.
