the shadow senators

December, 1935
Shadow Case File #92

In this tale, when esteemed Congressman Layton Coyd begins making erratic and irresponsible political decisions The Shadow, via Lamont Cranston, is brought into investigate the matter.

Seeping with political intrigue, The Shadow finds himself in a world of Washington politics and treachery. Not too far off from the New York he calls home….

honestly this post is beautiful

Hahahaa, I was just trying to capture the frustration of living in a relatively wealthy blue state. Like, I understand, politics these days is a horrorshow, and I have genuine, heart-stoppingly vivid sympathy for people who live in states whose topmost politicians routinely say horrifying shit denying the very humanity of some of their constituents. I really do. I really, truly do.

But Andrew Cuomo is an asshat, in the classic, old-school centrist New York Democrat kind of way, in a way that now seems so quaint. I mean, he’s a heartless bastion of mindless privilege, an absolute festering sump of pork-barrel patronage, a glad-handing media-hungry fop who’ll do anything for a soundbite and believes he’s basically God, on zero evidence.

I hate him, but if it were him or Trump, I’d knife-fight a furious weasel blindfold for him. At least he respects the office enough to turn up and at least make a show of it. And he’s, you know. Not actively a fascist. And probably not even currently engaged in treason. Who knew my standards would slip this low so quickly.

You're walking in the woods. There's no one around and your phone is dead.  Out of the corner of your eye you spot him

Senator Cruz


He’s following you, about 30 feet back. He gets down on all fours and breaks into a sprint. He’s gaining on you.

Senator Cruz

You’re looking for your car but you’re all turned around. He’s almost upon you now and you can see there’s blood on his face. No, there’s blood everywhere!

Running for your life from Senator Cruz

He’s brandishing a knife it’s Senator Cruz
