“Get Me Roger Stone”

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

I do as much as I can to avoid paying any attention to Washington DC. The House passes bill with full knowledge that the Senate won’t do anything other than greet themselves in the mirror each morning as “Good morning Mr./Madame President.” It’s a unique combination of pointlessness and vanity imo. Anyway I had never heard of Roger Stone until CNN was there with a news camera to arrest him on something to do with Russiagate. I heard something about him having a tattoo of Richard Nixon’s face on his back. A friend strongly recommended that I watch “Get Me Roger Stone” on Netflix, which I did this morning.

I’m still trying to process it.

If you mix Forrest Gump’s proclivity for being around big events with a Denny Crane scale ego and a large dash Idiocracy politics, that maybe kind of sorta is a starting place, but only a start. I’ve never seen anything remotely like it. It is both profoundly disturbing and occasionally hilarious, and it leaves people like me politically homeless living in a VAN down by the RIVER.

Go watch it. Like now! And then see if you can console me in the comments section. This is all going to be ok like somehow right?

    What I can’t figure out- is why the FBI needed 27 or 29 armed men and 17 cars to arrest this 66 year old man. I guess this is my tax dollars at work?

    I can’t comment on Stone because I too have avoided paying attention to DC for the past couple of years. (It is surprisingly easy after the initial short-but-intense withdrawal period.) But if I show this post to hubs, he’ll want to watch the show tonight, and I just don’t know if I can handle the kind of Twilight Zone vibe you’ve described.

    Welcome to the riverbank, refuge of sanity and decency! Don’t crowd my parking spot or I’ll cut you.

    Stone is a solid Damon Runyon character. Review Mueller past action over the past 20years and you will find many interesting events he has been involved with.Made millions off the uranium deal.
