Pelosi's mouth is dropping at a weird side-cocked angle. think she might have suffered a series of mini-strokes or something? a-mom?

please rescue me if i am wrong on this point made by my event coordinator side of the brain---

when two people must share a podium, it's considered bad form to have the non-speaker standing jam-shouldered into the current speaker.

why, because all they can do is stand there looking like a hump, a bubblehead or an emotionless dullard.

stand to the side and employ a 45 degree line of sight scanning from the tip of the current speaker's nose out into the "audience" zone (even if on tv). that will show engagement and signs of intelligent life.

the "resistance" has no idea what a gift they gave us last night. i'll take every advantage. they were like the bad BCS Bowl half-time show.

hi, daddy--had to look it up, but Hardy is referencing Gray's "Elegy"--and references the dead to contrast them to the living: “Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife / Their sober wishes never learned to stray.” Hardy and death! Lots to say there, but am not going to re-read him as he's depressing and atheistic, god bless him. Great great writer.

Buckeye, I’m saving that for some work situation. Thanks.

I can't take credit. MT used that line when comparing Obama and McCain.

Hope your joints don't, uh, stiffen up during therapy.

They would be in the Anglo German societies there.

and they offered offered 25 billion Dollars (same folks, Pelosi, Schumer, Hoyer) for a DACA deal.

That deal fell apart because the 9th circuit suddenly gave DACA the green light and the Dems thus no longer needed to make a deal. At least not until SCOTUS rules.

In case anonamom wasn't clear, James Damoore himself was responding to the original poster in that reddit thread she linked and he acknowledged the guy seemed to know a lot of insider stuff.

Could be an old stroke, but it may well be she's had her facial nerve damaged from one of her face lifts.

Does anyone think that Pelosi and Schumer are better at this than Trump?

Maybe they are! I just doubt it.

Marlene, my neighbor was taken away in handcuffs tonite. I'm only aware of it because Kiwi ran in that direction. My friends are telling me to drop out, because at this point there is nothing I can do. I will admit this is the worse week I've had in Florida. I just don't think I have the stuff.

Not a chance; this is right in his wheelhouse and they're used to dealing with Failure Theater. His only risk is making those clueless dolts objects of sympathy.

Macaca!

Barr good friends with Mueller...

Ain't no way Trump is just bumbling his way through this minefield, picking a guy he can't trust for AG. If he did, he'd deserve his fate.

Jane, what’s the cliffs notes on the neighbor? Why are you doubting yourself?

glasater

If Barr is a straight shooter I'm with you, Extraneus. PDJT is picking his way through a minefield here.

Jane

It's very weird Ext. I don't get it.

“And, you know, they’re buying it, and some people, just like some other Trump supporters, are saying, well, you know, so what if he tells lies, as long as we have lower unemployment among the Latino community.”

Biggest lie of the day so far.

Despite being acquaintances which isn't terribly surprising, barr worked for the company before becoming atty general but he nonetheless expressed reservations over parts of the investigation

Jane, I expect your neighbor's son will have himself named in court as her custodian and will take it form there.

Any word from Rich who was dreading Monday?

Who's doing the bullying? My third grade son has taken no end of crap from his "friends" at school after voting for Cruz in the school election (only three kids did so in the whole school).

Fake tits? You're kidding me!

Who's doing the bullying?

Amazingly, they never mentioned it in the piece, Porch.

daddy

On the plus side, I am very pleased that Local Talk Radio is so damned angry at Lisa Murkowski. The blistering callers are on fire.

On the minus side, the ADN weather page says we may get down to Minus 20 on Friday:(

But on the double plus side, on Friday I'lI be on my way to Honolulu.😎

TM woke up!

NEW THREAD

Porchlight

Ext, even if the study alleges that Trump supporting students are the bullies, there are also measurement issues. Liberal teachers and parents are probably more likely to report perceived bullying of non-Trump supporters now that we are living under a Nazi regime.

New thread, btw.
