Dark Stone Of The Moon

The lunatic is on the grass.
The lunatic is on the grass.
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs.
Got to keep the loonies on the path.

The lunatic is in the hall.
The lunatics are in my hall.
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more.

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon.

The lunatic is in my head.
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me ’til I’m sane.
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There’s someone in my head but it’s not me.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you’re in starts playing different tunes
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon.

I rarely start a post with a quote let alone song lyrics, but another Roger’s weirdness has led me to post these Roger Waters lyrics. The other Roger is, of course, Stone, Roger Stone. I sometimes wonder if Tricky Dick dropped Roger on his head thereby causing, well, Brain Damage.

Roger the Ratfucker has some interesting hobbies in addition to supporting Donald Trump and defaming the Clintons. That is, however, what he’s de-famous for. It turns out that Roger Not Waters is a moon landing truther.

Roger Stone claimed that video of the moon landing was “a hoax … shot in a warehouse in” New Jersey. Stone is a longtime top Donald Trump adviser and one of the Republican presidential nominee’s go-to sources for research.

Stone, who remains in regular contact with Trump (and whose talking points and theories Trump regularly adopts), is an ardent conspiracy theorist. For example, he has claimed that the Clintons orchestrated the murder of four people this year; the Clintons killed John F. Kennedy Jr.; President George H.W. Bush tried to kill President Reagan; President Lyndon Johnson killed President John F. Kennedy; and Sen. Ted Cruz’s father is connected to Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.

In a January 2013 Twitter exchange, Stone wrote in response to someone stating that Americans “stepped on the moon”: “whole moon shot thing a hoax. Video shot in a warehouse in NJ.”


The New York Times wrote in 2009 that “polling consistently suggests that some 6 percent of Americans believe the landings were faked and could not have happened” and noted that there “is no credible evidence to support such views, and the sheer unlikelihood of being able to pull off such an immense plot and keep it secret for four decades staggers the imagination.”

Why Jersey? Hasn’t it suffered enough from being the locus of the War Of The Worlds radio show hysteria, the Lindbergh kidnapping, and the Christie governorship? What do Nucky and Chalky think of this? Does this make Bert Cooper’s final episode on Mad Men a lie? I obviously miss Boardwalk Empire and Mad Men

The other weird thing about this is that Stone’s hero, Richard Nixon, was President at the time of the moon landing and took full advantage of it. Is Roger the Ratfucker saying that Tricky Dick was tricked? Me, I think Roger is not only cruising for a bruising, he’s batshit crazy:


I’d like to thank the fine folks at Media Matters for providing some comic relief during this rather grisly-n-grim campaign season. I’ll see you on the dark side of the stone or is that dark stone of the moon? I’m confused. Perhaps I should contact Roger’s pal Alex Jones for the straight scoop. Nah, I’d rather hear some Pink Floyd:
