Re: Transition 2016 and so forth

Serious journalists must stop using the phrase "Trump lost confidence in." Everyone knows it's bullshit.

I'm !00% with Marcy Wheeler here. I'm kind of stunned that the WAPO reporters have been sucked into the Telanovela that Billy and Donny have cooked up.

Re: Online Restaurant Food Delivery - DoorDash, Postmates, Uber Eats, Direct Order - How Much Do You Tip?

Like malls. There's a kiosk in my local mall where I get my batteries changed in wristwatches, but I never bought a watch there. I was in there a few weeks ago and the mall is dead. I couldn't believe how few people were there. i don't know anyone who wears a wristwatch I do. (wear one, that is. I ...

Re: Online Restaurant Food Delivery - DoorDash, Postmates, Uber Eats, Direct Order - How Much Do You Tip?

Delivered groceries, also, is not all that. Sure, they can deliver prepackaged boxed/canned goods, but I want to select my own fresh fruits, veggies, and perishables. (including grabbing milk from the back of the cooler with the most distant sell-by date) You are a guy my mother would've loved. I t...

Re: William Barr, AG

I actually am curious about Barr's endgame. There's good reason to suspect he may follow Alberto Gonzales into the realm of "former AGs considered unemployable by the legal profession," which amounts to a sort of de facto disbarment. Then again, he probably doesn't really care about that. Barr is a...

Re: All the President's pardons

There’s no logic to him pardoning these guys but not his henchmen. Or pardoning at this time of year at this point in his term. Sure there is! Normalize that people who commit the kind of crimes Trump and his buddies did get pardons! He's just not pardoning Stone, Manafort and Flynn before the elec...

Re: What are you listening to? Podcasts!

So I used to subscribe to Preet's Stay Tuned With Preet podcast, but he started doing the majority of them with Anne Milgram, and you had to pay to play (literally).

No, he's doing this because HE CAN. Note that the former Gov. of Illinois and Bernie Kerik were in positions of public trust. So he's normalizing corruption for government officials. Disgusting. Bernie Madoff can't be far behind.

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

So WAPO's take is that she will sentence Stone on Thursday but "delay execution of the sentence" pending disposition of the Motion for New Trial. Which means Stone doesn't go to jail yet.

I would NOT consider Barry McCaffrey part of the "right" and I posted this because it's this kind of stuff that will be flooding the airwaves.
