ENUF IZ ENUF! Freaks Protest National Spelling Bee

Wonkette operative "Sarah" sends a horrifying report from the National Spelling Bee:


You know how they're having the National Spelling Bee Championship at the Hyatt at 11th and H NW -- well if you didn't that's where they have it -- across the street from my office? Anyway, there have been protesters there all week. We thought originally they were protesting the fact that parents push their kids too hard, etc, etc. But no -- check it out. They're pissed because the English language is too difficult and unfair!
Surely this is a clever prank, right? Who the fuck would protest the National Spelling Bee? Meet our new favorite nuts, the Simplified Spelling Society. They're actually carrying signs with slogans such as "I'm thru with through" and "Enuf is enuf. Enough is too much."

Says one of the picketers: "Our odd spelling retains words like cough, bough, through and though. This increases illiteracy and crime." Think about it.

What did we say this morning? Something about how "They want a war with Iran," and "Please do not listen to news reports about Trump telling his people to cool their jets with the Iran talk, because they want a war with Iran, and all they are looking for is their trigger"?

News came out early this morning that Iran shot down a US drone in the Strait of Hormuz, outside Iranian waters. Let's see what our president and his war-bonering GOP shitmouths in Congress have had to say about that:

Great. Just great. So what's happening now?

Awesome. Just splendid. Trump is having a cuddle party today with John Bolton (who's had a hard-on to bomb Iran since the Bush administration); Mike Pompeo (who's been making the rounds lying and saying Iran and al Qaeda are best friends, thus implying that it's very legal and very cool for Trump to strike Iran without congressional authorization, based on the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Congress voted for five days after 9/11); and Patrick Shanahan, the outgoing acting Defense secretary, who will make way for another acting Defense secretary, because who needs real Defense secretaries? (The new guy, Mark Esper, is part of the meeting too.) And as Senator Schatz points out above, Trump is emotionally unstable and doesn't know dick about foreign policy, so it's just great that he's having an emergency meeting with these unhinged hawks about this right now.

Tell us what this all means, unhinged hawk Lindsey Graham!
