If I were to take his point...I wonder where he'd contemplate going? Moldova? Belarus? Paraguay? Turkmenistan?

@ESQPolitics  “There will be great fraud, and rumors of fraud. And thou shalt pay enormous fines, with wailing and tended garments, saith the Lord. But culpability and wrongdoing wilt thou not admit, though thou wast in charge of thine own company, and were master over many things.”

When I saw the new Eisenhower Memorial in DC last night, the soldiers’ naturalistic group pose reminded me of another monument, in London, to the RAF.

@ddale8  Her professional work lends credence to the idea that the Russians are involved in well-financed, extensive operations to screw up Western elections. Far more significant than any personal animus is the unwillingness to reward that particular work! Hoax! It never happened!

You have to have some sympathy for Senators. If they ask about the fact that Barrett’s only been a judge for three years, he lone dissents on significant questions in American life, her opinions on Obergefell and other cases, you’ll be labeled anti-Catholic anyway. Watch! 1/2

2/2. If you ask, “When you said to new young lawyers that their “fundamental purpose” is to “know, love, and serve God” rather than “be a lawyer” what did you mean by that?” Reasonable question, direct bearing on the job, bound to make people crazy if you ask it.

@DavidCornDC  @realDonaldTrumpGotta  love the University leader’s counsel repeatedly objecting to what boils down to the simplest question: “Here are your marketing materials. Are they true?”

When she is asked about it, after being sworn in, does she have to tell the truth?

So should I upset that I live in a country run by a conman, or proud that I grew up to pay more income taxes than a billionaire? It’s an amazing country, no? NYT you have given me much to think about.


The population of Puerto Rico is larger than that of 21 US states. Would a similar crisis in Iowa get the same lack of attention?

It has been fascinating to read posts from people who have deeply internalized the idea that if a white man orders a black man to do something, he really should do it. (Or else, he's taking a risk, and has only himself to blame for the consequences)

@RobertWargas  I was driving and walking all day yesterday in the central city and that is just not so. Granted, I've only lived here 26 years so there might be something I've overlooked, but I'm thinking not... "how badly the city's been destroyed by rioters " is just straight-up nonsense.

Nigeria: the source of the most highly educated immigrants to the US of any country on the planet.

What we'll inevitably do, is get all distracted by the use of the word "shithole," instead of focusing on the embedded sentiment: That the United States is better off if Norwegians come here than Nigerians. Incidentally...Nigerians are THE most highly educated immigrants to US.

If you’re wondering,”What is this beautiful place where Jennifer Hudson is singing?” It’s the gorgeous Chicago Cultural Center on Michigan Avenue.

The OANN reporter’s Russian accent in the Buffalo police assault victim report is just a grace note, an aural maraschino cherry stop a poisoned sundae. This stuff gets crazier by the day.

a) Ask yourself the question, "What are we doing here?" b) Then ask yourself, "Does this person help us do it? Do we increase public knowledge and understanding o the issues? c) If your answer is "no," stop booking her! (BTW, It's not even-handedness. It's adversarial theater.)

@jrivanob  Grant whipped the men whose statues are being pulled down across the South, and did it well aware that he was ending slavery in the entire country by doing so. He came to detest slavery, and freed the man given him by his father-in-law. Doing this is just plain dumb. Ludicrous.

Will Rep. Mia Love, (R-UT), a member of Congress born in Brooklyn to Haitian-born parents, have anything to say about her party's leader saying stuff like this?
