My Name Is Whatever And I've Been Addicted To Snark — No Más El 9 De Noviembre, El Año 2016

The print fishwraps have Sunday funnies and this blog has — thanks to Tom Tomorrow (Dan Perkins) and his subscription plan — its own Monday funnies. Today, the theme is the red-hot issue of media perceptions of the presidential candidates of the two major parties. The unrelenting 24/7 nonsense on outlets from NPR to Faux News has sickened this blogger. As result, he is entering a self-imposed political detox program. No longer will this blog feature materials pertaining to Donald T. (for "The") Chump or The Hillster. Readers desiring political snark (and worse) should get themselves to Breitbart or Politico. This blogger is equally sick and tired of the nonsense that is the 2016 presidential campaign. If this is a (fair & balanced) farewell to the 2016 Follies, so be it.
