Now there's something you don't see every day, Edgar.


So on top of everything else today, the Watergate complex caught fire. On the 13th floor, if you like superstition. Just let that sink in, like pee in a Moscow Ritz-Carlton mattress, as it were.

The Washington, D.C., Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department said just after 2 p.m. that crews had extinguished the fire and were trying to eliminate smoke from several floors in the complex.

The department said no injuries had been reported.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but fire marshals have not ruled out the possibility the conflagration resulted from excessive friction, such as might be generated in a veritable orgy of rat-fucking.

And while the alleged video from Donald Trump's 2013 WaterSportsGate has yet to surface (Penthouse is offering a million bucks to any enterprising spies out there), there is at least video of the fire at the Watergate, from Patrick Garrigan, the Senior Director of Business Development at The Atlantic, who took the video from his very own nearby building:

Note to the screenwriters for the "January 11" episode of this 2017 program: You're laying it on a little thick, aren't you? Nobody's going to believe this; maybe dial it back a bit? G. Gordon Liddy is complaining this is a tad over the top.

In unrelated news, a flowerpot with a red flag threw itself off Bob Woodward's balcony, plummeting to the street below. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why its final thoughts were "Oh no, not again," we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now.

All we need now is a flash mob of people wearing trench coats converging on DC-area parking garages.

Poor People Are Mad As Hell, And They're Not Going to Take It Anymore.

The Poor People's Campaign marched on Washington, and we were there!

Culture Wars
by Dominic Gwinn

Yesterday the new Poor People's Campaign, led by Rev. William Barber and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, concluded 40 days of protest and civil disobedience with a rally on the National Mall. Building off of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr's original Poor People's Campaign 50 years ago, the new campaign is aimed at uniting labor leaders with activists to build a coalition of all marginalized people

The police have clearly failed to stop the scourge of black kids selling water to thirsty people, so your average law-abiding, permit-respecting white lady has no choice but to take matters into her own (did we mention they were white?) hands. You might call her a busybody gone power mad or a simple tool of racist micoaggression, but we just call her "Permit Patty."
