Am I the only one who's having problems laughing at this mess anymore?

Is there a point when satire, even great satire, isn’t funny anymore? The situation is so sad and so pathetic that trying to laugh at the absurdities is just too much. This is the feeling I’ve had recently when it comes to political comedies and even dramas. When I watch Veep or House of Cards, part of the entertainment comes from it being a “What if?” fantasy, but it’s not a fantasy anymore. We’re living in it.   For real, we seem to be living in a Joseph Heller novel, but not one written by Joseph Heller. More like a drunk hack trying to imitate Joseph Heller, and we’re at the chapter where they also stole elements from Robocop (e.g., making money off of services for stealing immigrant children is a program worthy of Omni Consumer Products) and threw in a little Manchurian Candidate and Red Dawn. Donald Trump standing next to Vladimir Putin this week so reminded me of the collaborator mayor in Red Dawn kissing commie ass, and all the Helsinki fiasco was missing is someone screaming “Wolverines!!!” in the background. And maybe since our government is in the hands of a reality TV show host, I shouldn’t be surprised things are turning more and more into bad fiction, especially in a culture where “alternate facts” is an accepted viewpoint in some circles. This dynamic is also true for comedy news. I love Last Week Tonight, The Daily Show, Samantha Bee, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, Sacha Baron Cohen, and others who make us laugh about these issues as much as anyone else. The use of humor allows many to get beyond their normal aversion to politics in order to understand. But I sometimes wonder if it can be unproductive in some ways to turn disgraceful behavior into ... a joke. If one approaches these things as absurdities to laugh at, one reaction might be to throw up one’s hands and say: “Fuck it. What does it matter? It’s all one big joke anyway.” And I worry that’s the reaction of too many, particularly the half of the country who can’t be bothered to get off the couch and vote even when they’re getting fucked over the most.

Open thread for night owls: The Seneca Falls women's rights resolutions of July 19-20, 1848

On July 19-20 170 years ago, people gathered in Seneca Falls, N.Y., for what has since been billed as the world’s first women’s rights convention and the beginning of the women’s rights movement in the United States. The media of the day, newspapers and pulpits, trashed the convention.  While sources differ, as they often do when it comes to numbers, historians generally say that about 300 people attended, including about 40 men. All but one of the attendees was white. That exception was the abolitionist and women’s rights advocate Frederick Douglass, the only African American at the convention.  The idea had been sparked in 1840 during the World Anti-Slavery Convention held in London. Lucretia Mott had gone to the convention with her husband, but being a woman, she was not allowed to speak on the floor and could only watch the proceedings behind a partition where she met Elizabeth Cady Stanton. In her diary Mott fumed that the “World” part in the title of the convention, «was mere poetical license.» Eventually, as a consequence of being sequestered away from the action, they came up with their plan for a women’s convention. For presentation in 1848, Stanton composed the Declaration of Sentiments, modeled after the Declaration of Independence and calling for rights for women. At the convention, 12 resolutions were presented for consideration. The most contentious: a resolution demanding voting rights for women. The most prominent foe: Mott herself. She said «Lizzie, thee will make us ridiculous.»  Men were specifically asked not to come to the first day of the convention, but 40 did anyway. So the women let them in but told them they could not speak on the first day. Douglass spoke anyway, eloquently and lengthily pushing suffrage on the ground that voting «was the right by which all others could be secured.» For two days, the attendees debated and argued and ultimately passed all dozen resolutions. Approval was unanimous except for the suffrage resolution, which carried by a small majority.  The Seneca Resolutions as passed (The originals were not numbered, and Resolution 12 was introduced on the final evening of the convention): Whereas, the great precept of nature is conceded to be, «that man shall pursue his own true and substantial happiness,» Blackstone, in his Commentaries, remarks, that this law of Nature being coeval with mankind, and dictated by God himself, is of course superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe, in all countries, and at all times; no human laws are of any validity if contrary to this, and such of them as are valid, derive all their force, and all their validity, and all their authority, mediately and immediately, from this original; Therefore, Resolved, That such laws as conflict, in any way, with the true and substantial happiness of woman, are contrary to the great precept of nature, and of no validity; for this is «superior in obligation to any other.» Resolved, That all laws which prevent woman from occupying such a station in society as her conscience shall dictate, or which place her in a position inferior to that of man, are contrary to the great precept of nature, and therefore of no force or authority. Resolved, That woman is man's equal -- was intended to be so by the Creator, and the highest good of the race demands that she should be recognized as such. Resolved, That the women of this country ought to be enlightened in regard to the laws under which they live, that they may no longer publish their degradation, by declaring themselves satisfied with their present position, nor their ignorance, by asserting that they have all the rights they want. Resolved, That inasmuch as man, while claiming for himself intellectual superiority, does accord to woman moral superiority, it is pre-eminently his duty to encourage her to speak, and teach, as she has an opportunity, in all religious assemblies. Resolved, That the same amount of virtue, delicacy, and refinement of behavior, that is required of woman in the social state, should also be required of man, and the same transgressions should be visited with equal severity on both man and woman. Resolved, That the objection of indelicacy and impropriety, which is so often brought against woman when she addresses a public audience, comes with a very ill grace from those who encourage, by their attendance, her appearance on the stage, in the concert, or in the feats of the circus. Resolved, That woman has too long rested satisfied in the circumscribed limits which corrupt customs and a perverted application of the Scriptures have marked out for her, and that it is time she should move in the enlarged sphere which her great Creator has assigned her. Resolved, That it is the duty of the women of this country to secure to themselves their sacred right to the elective franchise. Resolved, That the equality of human rights results necessarily from the fact of the identity of the race in capabilities and responsibilities. Resolved, therefore, That, being invested by the Creator with the same capabilities, and the same consciousness of responsibility for their exercise, it is demonstrably the right and duty of woman, equally with man, to promote every righteous cause, by every righteous means; and especially in regard to the great subjects of morals and religion, it is self-evidently her right to participate with her brother in teaching them, both in private and in public, by writing and by speaking, by any instrumentalities proper to be used, and in any assemblies proper to be held; and this being a self-evident truth, growing out of the divinely implanted principles of human nature, any custom or authority adverse to it, whether modern or wearing the hoary sanction of antiquity, is to be regarded as self-evident falsehood, and at war with the interests of mankind. Resolved, That the speedy success of our cause depends upon the zealous and untiring efforts of both men and women, for the overthrow of the monopoly of the pulpit, and for the securing to woman an equal participation with men in the various trades, professions and commerce.  For anyone interested in a scholarly but jargonless exploration of the Seneca Falls convention, Sally G. McMillen’s 2008 book—Seneca Falls and the Origins of the Women's Rights Movement —does a decent job, capturing the determination if not always the passion.of these radical activists.

At the time, the Republican Governors Association assailed the DGA, accusing the Democrats of creating a «shadow organization» and stated that the RGA would be totally transparent about their involvement in the race. SIGH...do you even NEED the punchline anymore? The RGA has registered a new PAC in VA to support the association's work for GOP gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell. The name of the new group, however, sounds awfully familiar. It's called VA Common Sense PAC. And it reminds, not by accident, of Common Sense VA, the group the DGA used during the party's primary contest to spend some $3M on ads framing McDonnell as out of touch with Virginians. So ... let's just work our way through this. Not only does the RGA copy the DGA's idea to create a Virginia-specific PAC, they all-but-swiped the NAME, too?

The last time Susan Collins was this useless on a Supreme Court nomination was . . . Merrick Garland

  Campaign Action Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) is very concerned about that whole summit thing that happened this week. She has very sincere hopes that Donald Trump not be Donald Trump anymore. «I believe that he needs to send a very clear message to the Russians particularly President Putin that we know for a fact that they attempted to interfere in the 2016 election. […] President Putin is not our friend. He is our adversary and I would hope that the president would start treating him that way.» She also «hopes the president makes it clear the United States will not tolerate Russian attempts to meddle with our elections.» As if the occupier of the oval office would do any such thing out of the goodness of his own heart. As though the Senate of the United State was totally incapable of doing anything to influence that outcome she so desires. Meanwhile, she's more than happy to consider giving her vote to allow Trump to make another lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, feigning the responsibility she says she feels as a senator. "«I take this responsibility very seriously. I am amazed that some of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle who took a position on the nominee before he was even nominated before we even knew his identity. That's not the approach I am taking. I am doing a thorough review of the extensive paper trail.» Pfft. She played the same game with the last Supreme Court nominee from a legitimate president—Merrick Garland. «Considering a Supreme Court nominee is one of the Senate’s most important constitutional responsibilities,» she intoned. «That is why I have called for the Senate to proceed to the next step by holding public hearings.» Also, «My meeting today with Judge Garland left me more convinced than ever that the process should proceed. Public hearings before the Judiciary Committee would allow that the issues that we explored in my office today to be further reviewed and analyzed by the Senate.» And what did she do to make all that regular order happen? Zilch. Nada. Not a goddamned thing. Collins is not going to take her job seriously unless we force her to. It worked once before, on Trumpcare. We have to make it happen again. The people of Maine need to call her on it. Directly. Every day. At her office numbers: (207) 622-8414, (207) 945-0417, (207) 283-1101, (207) 493-7873, (207) 784-6969, (207) 780-3575, (202) 224-2523. In person this weekend while she's back home. Do you live in Maine? You have a powerful voice in stopping Trump's Supreme Court nominee. Click here to write Sen. Collins.

Former Deputy AG confirms White House knew Michael Flynn was compromised and under investigation

Former United States Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates was a guest on The Rachel Maddow Show and she confirmed some rather big news: the White House definitely knew former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was under investigation when Donald Trump asked James Comey to lay off the investigation. According to a memo then FBI Director James Comey wrote immediately upon leaving the meeting in question, Donald Trump said, “I hope you can let this go.«  Yates had twice warned the White House that Lt. General Michael Flynn was compromised. From her Senate testimony: Former acting Atty. Gen. Sally Yates testified Monday for the first time that she warned White House lawyers at least twice in January that President Trump's national security advisor at the time, Michael Flynn, »could be blackmailed« by Moscow, may have violated criminal statutes and had misled Vice President Mike Pence about his dealings with Russian officials. »We believed that Gen. Flynn was compromised," Yates, a career prosecutor, told a Senate Judiciary subcommittee investigating Russia's role in the 2016 election. Now Yates is confirming that she spoke directly White House lawyer Don McGahn and confirmed to him that Michael Flynn was under investigation. Watch her and Maddow get to the bottom of why this matters for a possible obstruction of justice charge against Donald Trump.
