Morning Thread

Gee, everyone is always talking about the weather, but nobody seems to want to do anything about it.

Sunday Night

This is the worst timeline.

The forecast is a bit nuts today.

Can you get the BBC?

I accidentally caught "The Everly Brothers: Harmonies from Heaven" on my TV, which brought tears to my eyes. If you can get Auntie Beeb, I recommend it.


I spent a couple of weeks injecting fluids and force feeding Wiley. For a few days he perked up and I thought I had rebooted him. Sadly, no.

Saturday, Saturday

It is finally Saturday! I think. I got nothin'.

Friday Late Thread

With relaxed cats

Friday, Friday

I thought it was Saturday.

Pelosi Is Great At Her Job And Also The Dem Leadership Is Too Old

These actually aren't contradictory opinions or even calls for Pelosi to step aside. Failure to bring young people into leadership positions is a problem throughout society today. Except maybe tech where they are all rich and like 19 years old.


As we enter into the great and wonderful primary campaign season, it's worth remembering that people, even when they mostly agree on things, have very different priorities. And one priority ranking isn't clearly more correct than another. Candidates have different priority orders from each other and so do voters.

Almost every candidate has some bad stuff in their records. I don't think there's one correct way to evaluate those things, either!


What choice do they have?

President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter.

Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. “Make it happen,” the sources said Trump told Cohen.

I have lost count of how may ways the current administration has attempted to obstruct justice. I bet there is a full time employee tasked with keeping track. Glad that's not me.

What If There Is No Tomorrrow? There Wasn't One Today

Everything is on repeat.

Time Flies When You're Sniffing Glue

Happy hour thread.


Most people had the luxury of missing most of it, so only politics obsessed weirdo bloggers and blog readers really saw it, but post-9/11 conservatives really acted like they were going to rule the known universe forever. They strutted and swaggered. Each one a hero. The invasion of Iraq goosed it up another notch. They were all warrior humanitarians from the comfort of their recliners. Democracy, Whisky, Sexy!!!

The late Bush years and then Obama took away that powerful feeling, and Trump didn't bring it back. They're still so unhappy.

Trump Don't Care

Until the folks on Fox&Friends decide the shutdown is bad, it's going to continue.

Apropos Of Nothing

Worth a read.

I was never on this particular email list (I smell too much of patchouli for such things), and unsubscribed myself from any I was on in 2016 because insiders are bad and best I didn't know that.
