Mooch Schmooch!

Mooch Schmooch!

Anthony Scaramucci - AKA “The Mooch”; Presiderp Donald J. Dump’s very short-lived press secretary - visited Bill Maher last friday. And here’s the thing: Mooch is quite obviously a rather sharp tack.

Don't you just hate it when this happens?

You spend a lot of time, effort, thoughts and energy composing - what you think - is a great post, then go off and do other things, come back later, and it is still grey and forgotten.

Maybe some off-the-cuff humorous or sarcastic remark you made gathers 30 stars, but that big thinky piece still gathers dust, unseen.
