Tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 1973

Apparently at RT last week people were being told that writers were best served if they remained apolitical, that they should be Switzerland among all the sturm und drang on social media.

Yeah. That’s not going to fly here in Casa Cameron (I mean, come ON. You people KNOW me). And right now it is damn hard for me to pick my jaw off my chest from where it dropped when I saw the news that 45 had fired FBI Director James Comey, allegedly for the way he handled the situation with Secretary Clinton’s emails (I swear to God, I go to the gym for one hour and all hell breaks loose in D.C.).

Which is bullshit, and we all know it’s bullshit. But once again it’s very clear that 45 does not know his history, and has never heard of the Saturday Night Massacre, where then-President Nixon fired independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox and Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus resigned in protest, triggering the series of events that led to Nixon’s impeachment. Now clearly that particular parade is not going to happen this time, since Smilin’ Jeff Sesssions is AG and is perfectly happy to go along with whatever 45 wants. But with any luck and a good tail wind this is the beginning of the end for the current administration, especially as Comey was supposed to testify on Thursday at the same hearings where Sally Yates became a verb for “handing an overbearing idiot his ass.”

I don’t think 45 quite gets that Comey can still testify as a civilian. This should be fascinating to watch.

About Nicola Cameron

Nicola Cameron has had some interesting adventures in her life -- ask her sometime about dressing up as Tietania, Queen of the Bondage Fairies. When not writing, she wrangles cats, makes dolls of dubious and questionable identity, and thanks almighty Cthulhu that she doesn’t have to work for a major telecommunications company any more (because there’s BDSM, and then there’s just plain torture...).

  1. Yeah, I was thinking about that too. 45 knows nothing of history and is therefore doomed to repeat it. And as for being apolitical: Silence = complicity. I’m not terribly vocal about my resistance, but I’m definitely a thorn in the side of my GOP senators and representative. 😉 #LiveandLetTuTu

  2. And then there were today’s events. I swear, if I could find a wormhole to the timeline where Hillary won I would be there in a picosecond.
