Every now and then a trickle of truth issues from Maher's mouth.

MarkO

Tony, is that you?

peter

My dear departed mother was so proud of her Italian heritage. It pained her every time she heard the mafia stereotype.
Bill Maher is a low life. phony. Did you know he is an owner of the New York Mets with a $20 m share? I hope the effects of his coke binges catch up to him some day.

Maybe he was talking about the Russian Mafia.

narciso

Of course, has he spoken up against this before, no as usual as with Sullivan and Conor F, they have abetted what they now decry.

dublindave forever

Ha ha....Republicans decrying intolerance.

Eich's resignation didn't stem from his support of a political campaign that compared gay men to paedophiles. It happened because he gave money to political campaigns with close ties to racist groups.


Would you want a scumbag like that representing your...wait......let me rephrase ..if you weren't a Republican would want a scumbag like that representing your company?


Didn't think so.

maryrose

People can give money to whomever they want to support. It is our individual freedom that enables us to do this. Once again McCutcheon decided this week by the Supreme Court has to remind stupid, brain dead dems of the founding freedoms our beloved country began with in 1776. Dems need to get a clue. This isn't going to change no matter how much mewling and gnashing of teeth that they engage in. Even King Obama in the immortal words of the past "Can't Touch This"

"you weren't a Republican would want a scumbag ..."

Should the GOP head towards the clueless Left to garner the votes in the center or should they head towards the Right?

I didn't really need another reason to dislike/scoff at the Mets...but I guess I've got one more now!

The real mafia is not the Italians but the most elite group of people in America of which Mayher is a lansman. He knows it but cleverly deflects it away from this elite group.Due to their history , survival is their life's driver and they are very sensitive about negative comments.

Whew. I knew I couldn't be the only one who noticed all the blacks marching in the streets demanding his resignation.

narciso

Of course, they couldn't go after the black and latino churches that supported prop 8, so
Mormons and Eich, are easy targets.

thanks for reminding me, clarice,

Hit - Your picture of the MHL can (the beer I very much enjoyed w/last night's pizza) reminded me of TCFAB.

Which motivated me to ask about your other acronym, whose meaning I have been trying to decipher . . . FTSAH.

I saw that rich@gmu wrote that it meant "for the singles assembled here" - is that right?

My only decent guess was that it stood for "For The Sake of All that´s Holy" . . .

Bori

Or the president who share the same view.

For Those Scoring At Home

It was MarkO who suggested it after I wrote "for those keeping score at home".

I'm not getting into the details because . . . well, JOM seems to prefer not to hear the details of those scoring at home.

I'll plug the JOM wiki again because I added a few acronyms to it recently.

Captain Hate

I didn't really need another reason to dislike/scoff at the Mets...but I guess I've got one more now!

Speaking of the Mutts, one of their former pitchers, Mike Pelfrey was on the mound for the Twins yesterday in the Tribe's home opener. As usual Big Pelf was cruising along like the second coming of Walter Johnson when he reached a certain pitch count and became the reincarnation of Victor Cruz and batting practice ensued.

Ron Gardenhire seemed to be caught unaware but it was no surprise to anybody who'd witnessed some of his prior meltdowns in Queens.

The funniest part of Obamacare is per the CBO they were supposed to enroll 14M previously unisnsured by the end of 2014. I'll be charitable and give them 1M. That's a mighty 0.071%!

Obamacare. So limp it can't even get into the tenths place.

Thanks, hit !

Methinks a "D'oh" is called for here, for me.

matt

I wonder if that is the secret of Leland Yee, the famed Democrat California State Senator caught with "Shrimp Boy" Chow in a Chinatown brothel? You know, they anti-gun crank who got caught trying to sell automatic weapons and rockets to terrorists?

There well could be a gay triad, but that sort of thing is frowned upon in Chinatown.

Captain Hate

None of those dunces on Morning Joke were able to point out that their favorite RINO piece of shit, Jon Huntsman, was the source of the "Mitt Romney paid no taxes for ten years" lie that they were so upset about Reid mentioning. Top rate analysis imo.

Jumping off high places (buildings, bridges, cliffs, etc.) comprises only 2% of suicides in the US.

The most common method men use is gunshot, followed by hanging.

Seems to me the CIA guy follows a line of men of prominence who have jumped off buildings (the banker list).

This is a very high occurrence of building jumping.

James D.

Of course, has he spoken up against this before, no as usual as with Sullivan and Conor F, they have abetted what they now decry.

I don't believe for one second that Maher, or Sullivan, or Friedersof (however the heck you spell it; it's not as though he deserves the respect of having his name spelled correctly anyway) are actually upset about the firing, or think it's wrong.

What bothers them is that it looks bad, and that it's a step too far and too fast. As Rick says in Casablanca, "It's poor salesmanship."

I very much doubt that any of them object to opponents (or even insufficently enthusiastic supporters) of gay marriage losing jobs or being publicly attacked. They're just self-aware enough to know that the LIV hordes aren't quite there yet, and they don't want to upset things.

Well said, James D..

It's what I figured, Conor F, has been more frequently wrong on most things, occasionally he's been right, but always in the most condescending way possible,

Frederick and I just back from watching "Captain America: The Winter Soldier". So much gunfire, violence and outright mayhem it has to be a Harvey Weinstein production. He even makes a cameo appearance as the head of Hydra, the New World Order, who has infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. and wants to eliminate most of Washington and New York and the NE Corridor in order to save the world.

You know where this is going but because of the Captain, The Black Widow (Natasha) and Falcon we are living in the world we know today.

Clarice, did you know that under the Potomac they are building these huge helicopter carriers that can float 3K feet above the earth's surface?:)

Speaking of Captain America, when we took Maggie for a walk in the park (where she irritated me by being a PITA by trying to heave up a burr or something she shouldn't have eaten) Mrs H thought she saw the Russo brothers who produced the movie (at first she said the Coen brothers and I went WTF).

I think Morning Joke is considering a run for office again and wants to ingratiate himself with repub voters.
Mika is just ,well, hopeless..Idolizes Obama to the point where I throw up a bit in my mouth.
Jim Jordan tried to talk sense to a guy testifying about how 60,000 sign up goal after 73,000 loss is a net loss to no avail. These people are laser focused on spreading the lies. "We do too have more people signed" is their mantra, no matter what the truth and math tells them. Rand,the report was right. Just under a million new sign-ups. I don't count Medicaid people because they should have signed them up without this god-forsaken law. Upending the whole system for such a paltry number is appalling.Everyone who voted for it should pay the price of losing their job and then they must be made to enroll in it.
I have a theory. In the future O-care will be one of many possible options and I think individual states with a Repub president will dump it and get their own program like Jindal in Louisiana,
I think Sibelius thought all states would follow like sheep. Boy did she underestimate the american spirit.

No, they did Welcome to Collinwood, and then Arrested Development, among other projects,

Shh, JiB, those are supposed to be Division projects, Weinstein, I see the resemblance,

Cavuto had an excellent show on FBN on the REAL O-care numbers. Then a lying rep from the WH came on the next night to spiel his untrue venom.

MaryD

Maryrose, I had exactly the same reaction to the "new improved" Joe Scarborough that you did. He had the nerve to appear at the Northeast Republican Leadership Conference here in NH a couple of weeks ago, which in my opinion cheapened the whole event. Who does he think he's kidding?

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

I got a call this afternoon from a phone solicitor for the Republican National Committee trying to get me to "re-up". His spiel was to encourage me to contribute so "conservative candidates" could win in November. I curtly informed him that I had little confidence in the RNC's ability to identify conservatives, and was therefore limiting my giving directly to candidates of my choice who I believed met my criteria for conservatives. I also told him that I was fully informed and followed campaigns intently.

Interestingly, he had no canned comeback for that.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

Joe has all the convictions of a political chameleon.

Good for you Jim Rhoads. I love it when the RNC gets called on its blind idiocy.

I suppose this happens when one has life tenure. On the other hand, could a lawyer mock one of the Court's orders in such a way without discipline from the bar?

Many a judge deserves vituperation and mocking.

You know who deserves vituperation.

Ok, I saw this story earlier today, and now I see it again in two more places. Fox News, no less.

Retirements drain Congress of leaders amid frustration over gridlock, dysfunction

An exodus this year on Capitol Hill is creating a void in Congress, with some of its most experienced and skillful lawmakers suggesting the partisan gridlock is finally taking a toll.

[snip]

While Congress this year indeed loses some of it most experience [sic] lawmakers, who arguable [sic] were among the last of the bipartisan dealmakers, several of the Capitol Hill’s most promising lawmakers are already lining up for their committee posts.

[snip]

No state will likely be hit harder by retirement than Michigan, which will lose 136 years of seniority when including the departures of Sens. John Dingell and Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. The 87-year-old Dingell is the longest service member of Congress in history.
Aww... What a shame to lose Dingell and Levin.
Extraneus

Maybe McCain will name a bill after them.

MaryD

LOL, Extraneus. Combover Carl and Johnny Dingdong. What a gift to the Republic to lose these two creeps.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

The lawyers chastised in the case cathyf linked may well have had the last laugh. Here's part of the dope from Wiki:

On May 11, 2009, Judge Kent was sentenced to 33 months in prison for lying to investigators about sexually abusing two female employees. Dick DeGuerin, Kent's attorney, said the judge would retire from the bench because of a disability, rather than resign, thereby enabling Kent to keep receiving his $169,300 annual salary for life.[2] That did not satisfy the leaders of the House Judiciary Committee, Representatives John Conyers Jr., (D-Mich.) and Lamar Smith (R-Tex.), who demanded that Kent resign immediately or face impeachment.[3]

Judge Kent submitted his resignation on June 2, 2009, with the proviso that it would not take effect for a full year. This angered the membership of the House Judiciary Committee, which voted unanimously to send four Articles of Impeachment to the full House of Representatives on June 10, 2009.[4] The articles were passed on June 19, 2009,[5] making Judge Kent the first federal judge to be impeached since Walter L. Nixon, Jr. in 1989.[6] Kent thereafter submitted a new letter of resignation to the Senate on June 25, 2009, taking effect on June 30, 2009.[7][8] On June 30, President Barack Obama accepted his resignation.[9] On July 20, the House of Representatives passed a resolution[10] asking the Senate to end former Judge Kent's trial. Two days later, the Senate agreed to the resolution.[11]

Well, heck. My detour this afternoon kinda touches on both of the last two threads, but I'll put it here as not to distract too much.

Went down to Tuscaloosa for the Tri-Delta father-daughter lunch, which was held outdoors, and it was cold. High of only 66 degrees for 5th of April. Very unusual. Nice, though.

Anyway, on the way back, I took a quick turn on the road less traveled to pick up some whisky for a friend from a well-regarded distiller in Cullman county. Cruising through downtown Cullman, I ran across the church pictured below. Stunning. The Sacred Heart Catholic Church - a superb example of German Romanesque revival, built in 1916.

After a few ecclesiastic pics, I moved toward the other spirits. Old man had cooked up some corn (although decidedly not in season) and mixed up some apples with the mash and the result is rather, er, warming.

McCain is a quintessential member of the "old boy" network. He is a little old to have been raised in the "I'm OK, you're OK" era, but he sure has absorbed it and, as they say on American Idol, "made it his own".
