Hundreds Of Words: On Trump’s Latest Mad Rant

 The blockhead-in-chief's latest Alice in Wonderland tirade against Kamala Harris (a communist, he fumes), Biden and Obama (indict them!), and his own AG (he's right about Barr, but for the wrong reasons) is a true testimonial as to the soon to be former president's mental state. Trump's lashing out at his other aides reminds me of the Queen of Hearts' gardeners:

“The Queen of Hearts wanted to have a red rose-tree ... but these poor little gardeners had made a great mistake, and had put in a white one instead: and they were so frightened about it, because the Queen was sure to be angry, and then she would order all their heads to be cut off!

She was a dreadfully savage Queen, and that was the way she always did, when she was angry with people. “Off with their head!” They didn’t really cut their heads off, you know: because nobody ever obeyed her: but that was what she always said.

 “Now can’t you guess what the poor little gardeners are trying to do? They’re trying to paint the roses red, and they’re in a great hurry to get it done before the Queen comes.”

Where does Mitch fit in here?

 "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" Why indeed.

I nominate the Mad Hatter for the role of Mitch McConnell. As we all know (those of us who have Wikipedia anyway), Alice becomes a guest at a "mad" tea party where many riddles and stories are given, including the famous "why is a raven like a writing desk?" When Alice gives up trying to figure out why, the Hatter admits "I haven't the slightest idea!" I think this reflects most of Mitch’s thinking on just about everything.

Also, the Hatter reveals that they have tea all day because Time has punished him by eternally standing still at 6 p.m. (tea time). This reflects Mitch’s political positions, which belong back around 1850. Alice becomes insulted and tired of being bombarded with riddles and she leaves claiming that it was the stupidest tea party that she had ever been to. This would describe Mitch’s entire tenure in the Senate, especially his attempts to justify the ways of god (Trump) to man (us). A Mad Hatter if there ever was one.
