Republicans Behaving Badly

It seems to me that, if ballots for Biden are suspect, then the whole ballot should be invalidated. I say this because lots of ballots are marked Biden for President but also vote for some Republican for House and/or Senate. Invalidating the whole ballot means that Republican Representative or Senat...

Re: USA v Roger J. Stone, Jr., USDC-DC, Obstruction, False Statements, Witness Tampering

Stone's commutation may be constitutional but it has its curiosities. In Stone's case, Trump nullified Stone's prison sentence AND the very substantial fines that were part of the sentence. In previous commutations, such as Scooter Libby under George W. Bush, only the prison sentence or whatever rem...

Re: Anthony Williams, Private Attorney General

Confinement is confinement. Probably Florida will credit the time spent in the Hawaii jail as if it were spent serving the Florida sentence.

As was pointed out, ATW is probably going to spend the rest of his life in one or another prison, so the totals are probably irrelevant.

Re: Coronavirus: Schools - reopening plans - pass / fail ?

A real possibility is that schools open - but parents refuse to send their kids.

All those Trumpers bleating for school reopening --- are they sending their kids to school ?? Is Baron Trump going to a reopened school?

Re: The Many Conspiracies Of Kerry Swift-Boater Jerome Corsi

"GOAL: OCCUPY ATLANTA"

WTF? Even Sherman's army couldn't occupy Atlanta. By my calculation every SUV east of the Mississippi would have to be involved, and loaded with would-be occupation troops to even come close to this goal. Not thousands but more than a million would be needed.

Re: Republican National Convention 2020 Charlotte NC

It turns out very few cities are hoping to host the RNC. Especially during a contagion, especially on short notice, especially because there is no competition for the nomination (that boosts the number of attendees and hangers-on, and the local advertising for candidates). I'll bet I'm not the only ...

Re: Republican National Convention 2020 Charlotte NC

Wherever the Republican Convention is held, I'd very much like to see the contagion stats on delegates and locals for the month following the convention.

By the way, does anyone have news on the Democratic Convention? Is it going to be one big Zoom?

Re: Corona Virus Whackadoodles, Whackjobs and Conspiracy Theories (other than from the White House)

I don't think this is a whackjob theory, but - today being Good Friday 2020 - I expect a surge in virus cases soon after this weekend from people who insisted on going to church services confident that the natural cautions of contagion were somehow exempted in a house of worship.

Re: All the President's pardons

It may be significant that 'Blogo's' clemency was a commutation rather than a pardon. It means that the former Democratic governor gets out of prison but it does not restore his right to vote or his right to own a gun or some other rights and privileged.

Re: Walter Fitzpatrick

You're not likely to see legislation specifying how Grand Juries are organized because Grand Juries are creations of the Judicial Branch, not of the Legislative Branch. More likely the court system, under the supervision of the State Supreme Court, will work up rules of court that cover this topic.
