A Harley-Davidson throwing an oxygen sensor code. Just doesn't seem right, does it? A Harley having fuel injection and all? Seems like they should just have big thumping carburated engines on 'em.

This is one of those things which is so divorced from reality it makes my brain ache. The image on the cover of that issue of Time more accurately depicts the Obama White House than Trump's.

Clinton's before Obama's, Carter's before Clinton's; definitely FDR's. Senator McCarthy was crazy, seeing communists in every shadow, but in 2017 we must do everything possible to tie Donald Trump to Russia.


As I said, it makes my brain ache.
