BEHIND THE SCENES: For weeks now, an evasive idea has been trying to form itself on my cognitive drawing board, having to do with depictions of absurd, segregated services reserved for conservatives or liberals. At first I thought of separate traffic lights at any given intersection, one set of red lights for the conservatives and another for the liberals. Then I realized how unlikely it would be, in such an imagined reality, that conservatives and liberals would even share the same roads. If nothing else, there would have to be fancy toll roads for conservatives only and old, beat up, public roads for the liberals. So I scratched that.

Then notions of segregated meteorological services for conservatives and liberals began appearing on my internal drawing board. I imagined a conservative weatherperson standing in the pouring rain with a mic in one hand and an umbrella in the other outlining the counter factuals: sunny, low humidity, time for a picnic. You know, “fake weather.” But then a staff researcher found the YouTube video below, published way back in 2012. Damn it! That’s when I decided to go with the simple shit storm forecast.

I know; this has got to stop. I’ve lost control of my own creativity from a doodleographic perspective. Too often, when I sit down with my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, I’m unable to resist the temptation to devote yet another post to transcandidate Donald Trump. I’m counting 19 separate posts, click here to see them, tagged “Trump” dating back to December 14, 2015; you’ll have to click on “see older posts” at the bottom of the first of two pages. Yea, because there are 19 posts with the Trump tag. I know; this has got to stop.
