Today's Post May Be Longer Than A Tweet, But It's Still Short'n Sweet

This blog's poet-in-residence has outdone himself in the short, but pithy department. And he nails Der Trumpster in a single quatrain. The photo editor at The Nation deserves kudos, too — for the telling shot of Der Trumpster at a campaign event in Mesa, AZ. Thos blogger couldn't resist adding Der Trumpster's words. In the meantime, the lamestream media writes about Der Trumpster in tones that echo the Austrian press prior to the Anschluss in 1938. If this is (fair & balanced) dread, so be it.

Republican factions are fighting it out.
Who knows what the future will bring?
But, meanwhile, which faction is calling the shots?
The one-blowhard-narcissist wing. Ω
