Trying to listen to the hearing not that I relish any enjoyment in listening to Dems make fools of themselves but it's right up there with nails on chalk board, ok?
This man is wonderful. He shut Diane Feinstein up. Anyone who can do that earns my full support.
On to rookie Sen. Mazie Hirona-D Hawaii who starts whining like newbie puppets often do that Gorsuch hasn't shared his views a'tall on the many cases pending before the courts so how can she decide he's truly on the up and up, and up and up, blah, blah, blah...

Are you kidding me?
Somebody stop me... all I keep saying is WTF meaning what he frig...being Lent and all...

It would be so much fun if we could all meet to attend these hearings and sit there and laugh at the Dumbnuts whenever they ask foolish questions.

C-Span allows the public to see and hear for themselves what they've elected...I know, it can be embarrassing...
Unfortunately, and what's worse is that much of what is revealed rarely gets reported correctly, if at all.

Listening to a very nice recording of Appalachian Spring on the classical radio station. I'm unfamiliar with this one but I like the interpretation.

Takes the bad taste out of my ears from the horrible Wilco song I heard on the drive home.

As far as Schumer's request on the Gorsuch vote, I have a request of my own.

No filibuster until all voting rolls are clean with verified citizenship (and breathing status for Chicago).

Daddy,

It's "Uncle Nelson". How many times do I have to tell you! Harumph.

Are the hearings still going on? Do I have to try and find Cspan in Florida?

OMG nothing has highlighted the stupidity of the democrats than this hearing.

I've long thought that Patrick O'Brien had a time machine for his grasp of detail.

From Patrick O'Brian's Bodies at Sea: Sex, Drugs and the Physical Form in the Aubrey-Maturin Novels

["Dean King describes the variety of sources O'Brian regularly drew upon including:

letters and memoirs of the likes of Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood, Admiral James Samarez, and Admiral Byam Martin. For data on the Pacific he turned to the writings of Charles Darwin, Joseph Wallis, James Cook, and Joseph Banks. He also consulted William Henry Dana Jrs, TWO YEARS BEFORE THE MAST, which contained a superb account of sailing around the Horn. For ship, armory, and fortification vocabularies, as well as sailors slang, he had SAILORS WORD BOOK, compiled by Admiral William Henry Smythe, president of the Royal Geography Society from 1849-1851.]

I know I go banana's often on Darwin's "Voyage of the Beagle" and also have in the past on Dana's wonderful "2 Years Before The Mast', but they are the creme de la creme, the top of the heap, in great gripping reads if you had a chance to read them at the proper time of life with one's mind in the proper frame. Luckily I did and obviously so did Patrick O'Brian.

I once saw David Rockefeller on Fifth Avenue, in front of Saks. He was getting into a limousine. I recognized him. I said, "hello, David Rockefeller." He looked at me funny. I only bring this up because in his obituary at the Slimes they said that as a little kid he and his brother used to ride their bikes on Fifth Avenue with a limousine following in case they got tired.

.

Also from CNN:

GLORIA BORGER: I think he got, you know, a little testy with Senator Durbin on the gender bias issue because there was a question of whether in teaching a class, he had raised the issue of maternity leave in the wrong way and he got really testy when Durbin seemed to be impugning him on that particular issue and you got to see the other side of the sort of Jimmy Stewart-like judge and I don't think that hurt him at all, by the way.

BLITZER: I think he came out of that exchange fine.

BORGER: I think he came out of that exchange just fine but it was a very kind of human moment because it was very clear that Durbin wanted to get under his skin to a degree and he did.
---------------------------

I'm surprised anybody at that Network can breath with their mouths closed, much less knows what a human is.

Flake asking questions now... They appear to be setting up an all nighter.

Per Narciso's 07:26,

In Middle Eastern locations, like everywhere else, we are already required to pull out our iPads and Laptops for individual screening, just not our cell phones.

This reminder from last year is of interest: Laptop bomb used to blow a hole in Somalian plane was so sophisticated it managed to get through X-ray scanners undetected

My guess is that there must be some reasonable chatter justifying this decision.

No sweat Miss M.

You are completely forgiven as long as you let my Carolina Tarheels whip you (and hopefully your granddaughter's) Butler Bulldogs on Friday Night in the Sweet Sixteen.

I'm honored but I hope that wasn't Nels Cline who was the target of the invective.

daddy,

Granddaughter says that the only thing she got asked at Butler was whether or not she knows one of the starters on the Butler team, who graduated from her high school! HA!

I leave basketball to fate, as I am not a fan and don't have cable to watch, anyway. I will sort of root for Butler but won't be watching. If the Tarheels defeat them. I will be happy for you.

Old drunk embarrassing herself:

According to a source close to Hillary, she is putting together an entirely new staff to lead the opposition to Trump. She’s already brought back the irreplaceable Huma Abedin—the only person Hillary has decided to keep from the inner circle of her presidential campaign.

“She’s looking for speech writers and advance people,” said the source. “It’s real important to her that they be new blood. She believes the old guard failed her in the campaign.

“She says she is going to get back to work, high profile,” the source continued. “She wants to change her image—liven it up. She wants to reinvent herself. She’s working on putting together a war chest, getting a leased plane—the whole stuff of campaigning.

“She has many requests for interviews, appearances and speeches, and she’s weighing which ones to do. In the next months she is going to be all over the place, speaking up and raising hell.”

Excuse me for fisking Earth's greatest genius: Stephen Hawking Calls for EPA Chief Ouster

"He should replace Scott Pruitt at the Environment Protection Agency," Hawking said in an interview on the Good Morning Britain television show, adding that climate change is a danger. "It affects America badly, so tackling it should win votes for his second term. God forbid."

---Climate Change is a danger. "It affects America badly"

How so? East Coasters will never know snow again? Permanent drought in California? 17 continuous years of no warming seen via the Satellite data? Hurricanes much milder and less frequent? I'm all ears.

---"God forbid."

You're an atheist. Why bring up God? In your 2010 book you told us already the Universe was created without God.

---Hawking said he would like to visit the U.S. but fears he “may not be welcome”

Seriously, get your head out of your ass. You are entirely welcome here and you know it if you are honest enough to admit that to yourself instead of being a hysterical ninny.

Sorry. I'm just sick to death of nonsense, no matter what level of genius is pushing that hysterical nonsense. He may be a genius but he's also a dope.

I wonder why the Dem's don't expand their roster and go for a really great candidate from the past, John Edwards?

Seriously, what did he do that was any more low-life than any of the rest of those slugs? Other than the lying and the infidelity etc, he talked about lifting up the downtrodden just as much as any other Dem talks about lifting up the downtrodden. Plus Reille's got a new 'doo and she and their daughter have written a book on horses that I bet is a heck of a lot better read than anything Chelsea and Hillary have churned out, so what's not to like? 2 America's, 3 America's, whatever.

Hmm. You are reconstructing my past. I saw Son Volt's very first show, Wilco's fifth show, and many many Jayhawks shows at their peak in the early 90s. Saw them all a bunch of times. I might be able to agree, but Farrar hasn't the same range. We need to discuss it over beers. SV is on tour right now btw.

Yes, it probably was Nels Cline, and there wasn't anything wrong with it really except the pretentious placement of it, which can be laid at Tweedy's feet, probably.
