Matthews: all talk, no walk.

Sue

I’m not willing to let him off this easily. Make him tell us what he said. Make him publicly apologize to her. Humiliate him. Then I’ll be willing to let him spit while he rabidly talks about conservatives.

Jane

Sue,

Well I'm lobbying to bring back due process but I'll make an exception for Matthews, who for some reason bugs me more than most liberal asshats.

henry

Has Franken resigned yet?

Clarice Feldman

“MSNBC refused to say whether or not this is the only claim against Matthews.”

Instapundit

Sue

I’m okay with accepting he passed on due process by paying her off.

anonamom

Oh, I am all about dragging him over the coals, though this insanity needs to stop. We can stop right after we get to do the same with "Lawrence" O'Donnell!

Do NOT take my links to Salma's HW article to mean that I think GHWBush in wheelchair touching some girl's fanny as he reaches to put around her for a photo means Grandpa needs to be kept home.

Obviously, this whole thing a nuanced spectrum.

Jokes by our CV fellow who had done his five year surgical residency with us as well made in the OR among people who knew each other (and people's spouses, and kids, etc)

"MMMM--Thank YOU!" as he was tied in to his gown by the circulating RN

were funny; but the same words were completely inappropriate on day two of a brand new fellow's time with us. He was gone in two weeks time.
(This was 25 years ago! Pretty squeaky clean here in the Piedmont--on the medical staff side, I shall clarify...)

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Doesn't anyone here know how to play this game?

Their side dirty joke = rape.
Our side dirty joke = innocuous banter.

I read the rule book at the NYT and their side tells us the Times is, unlike Trump, unimpeachable.

Beasts of England

Gosh, those rules really suck when they're applied to the so-called rule makers, huh? Suffer, Chrissy.

Clarice Feldman

Anonamom this new sexual auto da fe is definitely ruining office morale and employee camaraderie.

Great Pieces, Clarice - very fresh and clever approach!

Love the card, JamesD. Merry Christmas to you!

Is our President still at Camp David? I wonder what he's up to this morning? An Egg McMuffin with a Diet Coke? Watching 8 hours of Sunday morning shows? Tweeting? Or...perhaps, something else - we shall see, won't we?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Momto2,

Somebody posted the other day that he had been to Camp David 5 times.

I wish I had a way to check (without meticulous searching) when those 5 times were.

Camp David has the advantage of being outside the fishbowl of the White House so that visitors can come without being observed by the press. I didn't see Melania or Baron get on that chopper with him, so it seems to me he might be doing something more important than relaxing or playing golf.

Do people actually pay to get HBO and Showtime? I got them for free for upgrading my Directv and there has been nothing on either I would watch.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Sorry for the double post. I am having the dickens of a time with my computer. I even refreshed Firefox to see if I could get it to speed up. I am getting things that take forever to load, non-response messages, etc. This all started with the latest addition of Firefox and I dono't like it one bit.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--An Egg McMuffin with a Diet Coke? --

Ya gotta admire Egg's zealotry, but is there nothing Mueller and the Deep State won't stoop to?

Jane

Sue,

Well you have a point with the payment. I feel better.

I keep trying to survey the Sunday shows for any talk of democrat collusion - so far nothing, but I admit I can't watch more than a few seconds at a time.

For people who do talk about it, (Fox) everyone seems to be on the edge of their seats - saying this is "bigger than Watergate"
and suggesting we are at the tipping point. One can only hope.

Momto2

so it seems to me he might be doing something more important than relaxing or playing golf.

Captain Hate

Wow, Doug Jones refused to take the Tapper bait. Sucks to be you, Jake. Idiot.

Last night's get together where my buddy was spinning records was really nice. He was one of three people doing so but his stuff sounded the best: a mix of early rock, blues and country, all on 45s in immaculate shape (he goes to a lot of collectors get togethers; my interest in that stuff is nil but I can't argue with the quality of his results). Even the co owners of the Beachland Ballroom stopped in to check things out; they're pretty much responsible for the mini development of the area, probably not far from maryrose's old neighborhood. The only place that's still an empty lot is where Danny Green used to live; I don't know how many of you are familiar with the movie "Kill the Irishman" but there's a mural with "Kaboom" on an adjoining wall.

Ironically killing Green led to the dissolution of the Italian mob in Cleveland. A woman artist noticed a guy in a pickup truck who remotely triggered the car bomb next to Green. She sketched the guy's picture to the cops, who recognized him immediately and he was picked up outside of Pittsburgh where he spilled his guts leading to massive convictions.

GUS

So you really ARE an exdem. Me too. Congratulations sir!

Momto2

Congratulations Exdem! Tomorrow is my son's birthday - Christmas babies are wonderful!

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

In dragging out in public a case quietly settled 18 years ago, Comcast now has a reason to cashier him. How convenient.

Matthews may soon join a list of over-55 television presenters bounced like a Bernie Madoff check this year.

Bill O'Reilly, 68, gone.

And since we're talking appearance, well I am anyway, could someone please convince American women their lips are just fine the way they are?
If they haven't got them pumped full of the fat off their own backside like Bibendum's [The Michelin Man] tummy rolls then they're got them pursed up like a perch to make them look fatter.
Very full lips look perfectly natural and lovely on a Nubian beauty. They look weird and kind of awful on a Nordic co-ed from Minnesota or a housewife from Scranton.

Bill O'Reilly was making plenty o'cash for FOX, but Murdochs' little boys weren't interested in anything Right of Shemptard.

Those older anchors had enormous salaries and bonuses. In an age of diminished TV ads, lower donations to PBS, and shrinking viewershi

It's even more of a savings if you have to keep paying women off to shut up and go away.p, an easy way of cost-cutting is to get rid of those with the big paychecks.

House Judiciary Committee member Jim Jordan (R-OH) says he's gotten a commitment from committee chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) to issue subpoenas for several key officials at the FBI and Justice Department implicated in disturbing revelations of political bias against President Donald Trump.
House and Senate committees have turned their focus in recent weeks to Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, counterintelligence investigator Peter Strzok, FBI attorney Lisa Page, former associate deputy attorney general Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie - who worked for Fusion GPS, the firm behind the "Trump-Russia" dossier and several other concurrent campaigns to smear Donald Trump in an effort funded in large part by Hillary Clinton and the DNC.

JNC,

We still lead in numbers of reactors and GWh produced but not as % of total generation. That would be France and Belgium. Both are over 70% of total generation needs. Of course, they have much smaller populations.

Currently (as of 10/17) we are at 99 plants, 531,029 MKwHrs, and 19.7% of current total electric generation.

JiB, have you been to Navy Yard lately? My eldest lives there, and has it changed in the three years since he moved in to his "yuppie dorm." (His characterization, not mine. Modern apt building w exercise room, common room w kitchen and big screen TV, terrace with fire pit/grills, roof terrace--they all are the same.)
His was one of the first; now every block is full of them. Bunch of new townhouses/rowhouses that look old.

BIG development on the Potomac south of that fish market that has been there forever. Wine bars, crepe stations, restaurants condos up the yin yang. They're calling that The Waterfront. Over east of the Nats Stadium is a development that's called The Yards, that followed after the Department of Transportation moved over to the real live Navy Yard north property line.

There is a whole lot of money in that town...
