Little to update you on today. I suppose I could go on and on about President Fuckwit, but it would make little difference here. I will say I just updated my cover photos on Facebook, Twitter and even Google Plus to this fantastic image of the "RESIST" sign hung from a construction crane behind the White House. It's the first time ever that my cover photo was not of me, or of Shobhit and me, or of a location tied to Seattle or Los Angeles. I want to say I'll keep this cover photo until President Fuckwit is out of office, but that’s obviously not a promise I know I can keep. It certainly carries more weight of meaning than any other image I've ever used on any of my profiles, though. This shit is too important.

I guess there's also the news that Mary Tyler Moore died today. Sad, yes. Tragic? Hardly. The woman was 80. That's a perfectly sensible time to pass away. The life expectancy of American women is roughly 81 years.

Last night I spent at home, either having dinner and watching TV with Shobhit, or working on the draft of my analysis of yesterday's release of Academy Award nominations, which I posted this morning.

I finished that up in between watching two episodes of The Young Pope on HBO Go, which we are both enjoying -- even though it's rife with typical Paulo Sorentino flourishes, like frequent surrealist narrative detours that I sometimes can't understand. As is also typical of his work, though, it's generally beautifully shot. It's always nice to see a TV show with great cinematography.

It's also been fascinating to watch it and see this Pope character's parallels to President Fuckwit. Except President Fuckwit isn't actually young. He's elderly, but still acts like a petulant child. How or why this country elected a man who has long been plainly disconnected from reality, I will never understand. This week alone, his first in office, has been packed to the gills with insane bullshit, and somehow the country thinks this Is better than what we might have faced with Hillary Clinton in office. In my view it's genuinely insane.

Granted, she won the popular vote, by a stunningly wide margin. But President Fuckwit knew how to work the system better than she did. It's that simple.

I had an endlessly seething loathing for George W. Bush and President Fuckwit makes me miss him.
