It's Redefine Things Thursday, Apparently


Now that Donald Trump has proven his ability to read a speech from a teleprompter, thus making him the master of all foreign policy, he figures it's time to give his socio-political movement a name. A name that will ring through the media and eventually into the history books, like the Civil Rights Movement, the Youth Movement, the Feminist movement, or the Tea Party Movement. He's come up with the perfect moniker: "The Smart Movement." The sad thing is that you know he thought of it all by himself.

“We have a movement going on. You know, in a way I call it the smart movement," Trump told an audience in Evansville, Indiana.

Telling voters that they will get sick of him from seeing so much in the coming days, Trump said polls are showing him doing well in the state.

"We want to be smart again. We’re not smart anymore, folks," he said. "We don’t win anymore but we’re not smart anymore. So we call it the smart movement, and that’s what I want to have.”

Huh! We'd say the middle paragraph is spot on. And your own popularity is certainly evidence for the first line of the third paragraph. You may want to ask someone to explain the math there.

Honestly, when we hear Donald Trump calling his Coalition of the Witless "The Smart Movement," the first thing that comes to mind is that painful scene in Welcome To The Dollhouse where the sweet innocent little girl has absolutely no idea why anyone might laugh at the completely earnest name "The Special People Club." Except with Trump the cringing isn't nearly so sympathetic.

Hell, Donnie, if you want to call it the Smart Movement, you just go right ahead. You may want to consult with professors Dunning and Kruger first, however. On second thought, forget it. They couldn't begin to explain it to you.

In conclusion, we have had movements smarter than Donald Trump, the end.

Doktor Zoom

Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
