One of the most common things to say in America, just behind "Happy Birthday" and "NO COLLUSION," is "Mitch McConnell should go fuck himself." It works for all occasions, whether you have just stubbed your toe or whether you are in the middle of your wedding to your sweetheart. Try it!

But why should Mitch McConnell go fuck himself at this particular moment? Let's look at the top three current reasons!

Because His Response To The Mueller Report (WHICH HE HAS NOT READ) Was To Blame Barack Obama For Russia's Attack On Our Election.

You know, the one that installed Shithole Von Fuckstain in the Oval Office! That Russian attack!

Add Mitch McConnell to the list of Republicans gloating this week because they think they've won. He marched his turtle bottom right onto the Senate floor to address the conclusions of the Mueller Report (which he has not read), by stating (as if he'd read it) that Mueller definitely found the guilty party, and it is Barack Obama:

"The attorney general reports that Russia carried out online disinformation campaign and computer hacking efforts designed to sow discord in our nation and interfere in American politics. It is deeply disturbing that the Obama administration was apparently insufficiently prepared to anticipate and counter these Russian threats," McConnell said. "It was hardly a secret prior to November 2016 that Putin's Russia was not and is not our friend. And yet for years, the previous administration ignored, excused and failed to confront Putin's malign activities both at home and abroad."

Perfect, just perfect. Just wow. Breathtaking. The fucking stones on this guy. McConnell wants to let us all know that Putin is bad and that Obama is bad, and it's just too bad Bad Obama didn't do anything about Bad Putin. Gotcha. (Go fuck yourself.)

And let's be real here -- Obama's Russian policy wasn't always the best! And also the Obama administration's response to the ongoing Russian attack did fall short in some key ways -- like the key way in which he let himself get rolled by Mitch McConnell.

Allow us to remind you what Mitch McConnell did when Barack Obama came to him and said, "Hello, my turtle friend who also loves America, our nation's presidential election is under attack by the Russians. Please help me get the word out, bipartisanly, because you love America. Allegedly!" When McConnell and other congressional leaders were briefed on what was going on, not only did McConnell tell the Obama administration to fuck off, he also questioned the intelligence showing that Russia was behind the attack, like a common Trump.

Oh yeah, AND he told Obama that he would call it dirty and uncool "partisan politics" if Obama told America the Russians were attacking the election to hurt Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump. This was during the time he was refusing to hold hearings for Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, which sort of sounds like "partisan politics," if you are not aware that Republicans play by a different set of rules known as IOKIYAR.

Because He Doesn't Want You To See The Mueller Report, Even Though It Allegedly Absolves Shithole Von Fuckstain Of All Russian Crimes!

Huh, that is weird. Because a new poll says that fully 84 percent of Americans want the full report released, including 75 percent of people who admit to the shameful fact that they are Republicans. And Donald Trump says the Mueller report was "great" and "could not have been better," and he's probably about eight seconds from saying that a lot of people had no idea Robert Mueller was a Republican, just like Abraham Lincoln, who a lot of people had no idea was a Republican before Donald Trump found out he was a Republican.

Despite all that, McConnell blocked a nonbinding resolution from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to release the full report, a resolution the House voted 420 to zip to pass. That's weird, right? Wonder why he wants to deny Americans the right to READ IT AND WEEP about how innocent and pure Donald Trump really is, because that's obviously what the report says, right?

Because He Does Want To LOCK HER UP, Because America Has Been Sentenced To Remain In 2016 For All Eternity

If you saw Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham's bullshit press conference on Monday, you saw Graham demand that Attorney General Bill Barr appoint a new special counsel to investigate the last special counsel and also to investigate Hillary Clinton's emails some more, because that's new. So, what does McConnell say? He doesn't support transparency for the Robert Mueller investigation, but does he support investigatin' the Clintons some more, because sure why the fuck not?

What an utter shock.

In summary and in conclusion, these are the three most popular reasons Mitch McConnell can go fuck himself at this current moment in time. They are subject to be replaced with new reasons at any time, because McConnell never ever takes a break from hurting America.

Now it is your OPEN THREAD.

Last week, Yr Dok Zoom talked a little bit about his damn dissertation, which looked at "Wabbit Literacy," the weird thing where we sometimes learn about the world from parodies and jokes long before we ever encounter the original stuff -- like learning about opera from cartoons. More than one person in the comments (which Wonkette does not allow and yet, like life, you find a way) mentioned they were disappointed, as kids, to learn that while roadrunners are real birds, the actual critter looks nothing like this:

Which is not to say that real roadrunners are the least bit disappointing, as animals go, because they're freaking incredible. Yes, even if they don't actually leave lines of flame down the center line of desert highways and go "Meep! Meep!" But they can sprint up to 20 miles per hour, which is faster than you, albeit slower than a real coyote's top speed. Also, yes, real coyotes are among the predators what eat roadrunners, which is why the wily birds adopted the evolutionary strategy of running right through fake tunnels coyotes paint on the sides of mountains.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."
