Monday night, Mitch McConnell and Alison Lundergan Grimes held their only debate in the race for U.S. Senate for Kentucky, and sure, there were some weird moments, like Grimes continuing to not say whether she voted for Barack Obama, as if that somehow were important, or McConnell's weird insistence that if he gets his wish and Obamacare goes away forever, that somehow won't change anything for the 500,000 people who've gotten health insurance through Kentucky's exchange website, Kynect.

But Yr Wonkette is fascinated by a more obscure bit of McConnell's performance: his odd choice of "rimrack," a word that many Twitter users picked up on. Roll 212, please:

"Our hospitals are being rimracked by these Medicare reimbursement reductions."

Rimracked? WTF? Please assist us, Urban Dictionary!

That's pretty darned authoritative, by golly! And this is apparently a term that Mitch McConnell has used before, going back to 2004, when he used it in a Senate debate:

It would seem there is one heck of a lot of rimracking going on with this fellow! Or maybe he is just a crusty old sea turtle from the age of sail?

Aw, Bluegrass Politics, you are just no fun. We finally managed to find a matching definition through the Internet Archive: "rimrack, v. t. To injure, damage." So we suppose maybe Mitch McConnell is more of an old salt than Twitter is willing to give him credit for.

In conclusion, buttsechs.

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.

How do you do, fellow libs? We come together tonight to cheer and clap and cry and laugh, with our leader, Elizabeth Warren, and her fellow nice people Jay Inslee (the gold standard in climate action), Beto O'Rourke (excellent on being a good ally mostly), Cory Booker (best corny love hippie but also Wall Street, it's weird), Julian Castro (I don't know, people are super into him despite his creepy twinness and his too much pomade), Amy Klobuchar (bad bitch), Bill de Blasio ( ... ), John Delaney (???), and Tim Ryan and Tulsi Gabbard.

We know, the thing we said in our headline is a thing you can say every day, but it's really intense today, maybe because Donald Trump is now filled with fear of the inescapable reality that millions of Americans who have not read the Mueller Report are going to see Robert Mueller testify on live TV on July 17, and Donald Trump will be exposed. Maybe the Big Mac vending machine next to his golden toilet is on the fritz and he hasn't had gotten to eat a Big Mac on the poop chair since last night. Maybe he's just a weak and sad person, a collection of shithole cells God meant to throw in the garbage, but accidentally implanted in Mary Trump's turkey incubator. We imagine that'd lead to a pretty constant state of anxiety and ennui.

Whatever it is, he's totally fucked right now. We were going to write a nice post about Trump's batshit interview on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo, but we were busy, and by the time we got to it, he had performed so many batshit feats that we're just going to stick them all in this one post.

Let's start with the fight he's trying to wage with US soccer star Megan Rapinoe, who in a now-viral video stated that she has no fuckin' interest in going to the White House to meet that idiot. He got into a quarrel with her on Twitter ... or at least with a Twitter account that didn't belong to her. It's now been replaced, in order that the adult president may shit-tweet at the soccer superstar who hurt his feelings, but Splinter grabbed the original:

The rant continued:

Right. And Megan Rapinoe just said win or lose, she has no interest in meeting your crusty ass, because no decent American would consider that an honor.

Besides, she has already been to the White House to meet a legitimately elected president:

By the by, the owner of the incorrect Megan Rapinoe account saw Trump's whining and told him to grow a dick and set it on fire:

Ya burnt!

But as we said, it was a whole day of batshit from Trump, so let's continue.
