The Hirshhorn, Butt-Ass Ugly Modern Art, and the Amoral Evil of Mitch "The Bitch" McConnell, a.k.a., George Orwell's 1984 O'Brien Monster

The Hirshhorn Museum as seen from the "Earth Day Park," Washington, D.C., 12:58 p.m. June 17, 2019

This is actually the backside of the butt-ass ugly Hirshhorn Museum, a "modernist" architectural monstrosity that together with the grotesque "sculpture garden" on the National Mall side forms this Smithsonian repository of modern and contemporary art exhibits.

I refer to all that intrinsically worthless, purposely hideous, "abstracted" into farce, and all-around useless garbage that no normal human being would or could ever love and instead is the purview of those art critic sorts that aren't actual human beings in the sense that you and I are. I refer to the sort who goes nuts over some Rothko that turns out to be a fake, except in modern art, nothing can be fake because nothing is real.

Mark Rothko's "artwork" are total nonsensical crap except for their ability to hoodwink a certain subset of the population.

True, the Hirshhorn Museum design isn't quite as appalling as that car engine air filter-resembling structure that houses the Pan American Health Organization, but it's a close second …

Yeah, this disgusting-looking structure.

By the way, fuck this blog.

Anyway, I'm home now and watching Perry Mason ("The Case of the Careless Kidnapper"). I stayed late at work -- i.e., did not go to the gym tonight, as I did last night, but instead stopped at Old Ebbitt Grill where I had two interesting conversations.

By the way, I discovered the other day this New Republic article by Alex Pareene about the Zen-like nihilistic amorality and piece-of-shittery that is Mitch "The Bitch" McConnell.

Look at McConnell: Garbage-dump of total amorality personified.

Putting aside McConnell's marriage of power convenience to that aging China doll wife -- pictured left -- and her own shipping empire criminal machinations, it is still the case that no matter the long-term damage McConnell inflicts upon American civilization, the nanosecond he kicks off will be a good day.

Of course, the Kentucky electorate will EAGERLY and GLADLY reelect him -- his current 35% approval rating notwithstanding -- PRECISELY because (to quote Bill Maher) he has that "Magic R" next to his name.

Having read Pareene's piece, I actually had a wee epiphany the other day: The turtle-frog creature of Mitch "The Bitch" McConnell is basically the Kentucky yahoo version of George Orwell's 1984 character O'Brien in its utterly psychotically amoral, "stomp on the face of humanity forever" power-for-power's sake incarnation.

OK, that's all I'm going to say in this entry.
