Enjoy the music, but most of all enjoy your day.🌞

  1. Very nice, Jace. Hope you and Mrs. Jace are doing well. 
    Had a good visit wit my sis and family and my uncle. Hard to believe he’s 92. Other than having shot knees and blurred vision in one eye and an insane belief in the bullscheisse spewed by SFB and televangelists like Pat Robertson he’s in remarkably good shape. And I found out that his mom, my maternal grandmother, lived to 97 1/2 instead of 93 as I had understood. Not sure he’ll surpass that but time will tell, won’t it?  Hope he does. 

  2. Jace… thanks for all the great selections you’ve posted this past year… this one was very sweet and definitely fits the season.

    patd….   I have one word for you….   MAMA!

  3. Donald Trump (Alec Baldwin) gets his wish to have never been president granted and sees how the lives of Michael Cohen (Ben Stiller), Brett Kavanaugh (Matt Damon), Robert Mueller (Robert De Niro) and more have changed in an alternate reality.

  4. how soon will a bell ring indicating another trumpy is fired? 
    from the guardian:
    One of Mick Mulvaney’s first tasks as acting chief of staff to Donald Trump will perhaps be explaining why he previously publicly called his boss “a terrible human being”.
    Video has emerged of Mulvaney, previously a Republican congressman, admitting his disdain for Trump shortly before the presidential election in November 2016.
    “Yes, I’m supporting Donald Trump; I’m doing so as enthusiastically as I can given the fact I think he’s a terrible human being,” Mulvaney said. Referencing Trump’s opponent Hillary Clinton, Mulvaney added: “But the choice on the other side is just as bad.”
    The videoed remarks, published by the Daily Beast, occurred during a debate between Mulvaney and the Democrat Fran Person in York, South Carolina.

  5. First things first, a lovely repeat by your chosen group, Jace, many thanks.
    Now on to the Cold Opening courtesy of Pat. Best line, IMO, the introduction of Donald’s new wife, “Hernia.”

  6. Yesterday afternoon around 1615 I jumped into the car and headed over to the battery store to stock-up. As always the radio was locked on NPR. I absolutely, totally, thoroughly enjoyed the last ten minutes of Beethoven’s magnificent 7th Symphony. The conductor laid down the baton as I drove into the store parking lot. I was exhausted from the experience.

  7. Ha, Mr Flatus, a Beethoven 7th will do that to one. I have often sat behind the wheel, following the symphony to the last dying note, and then found it difficult to leave the car. It’s only partly old age stiffness.  

  8. flatus, that was a good line; but the one i liked best in it’s a wonderful life sketch was kellyanne assuring donald “every time a bell rings, someone you know quits or goes to jail.”

  9. however, guess who was not amused by any of it.
    twit’s tweet today:
    A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion?

  10. I guess this means SFB will be supporting a return to the equal time and fairness provisions of the telecommunications act

  11. KC, I wouldn’t bet on that.

    Ummm, dear SFB,  SNL is a sketch comedy show. It’s not “coverage” or a “spin machine”.  For a perfect (almost) example of one-sided coverage see Fox News. For a perfect example of spin machine see KellyAnn Conway, Sarah Huckleberry Sanders, Trudy Giuliani, Fox News…

  12. What we are watching is not a president going down for many political violations or reasons, we are watching a mob boss go down for serious corruption violations.  The investigation is just like what Mueller did years ago, the prosecution should be the same.  Bringing down a mob boss is something to celebrate.

  13. “we are watching a mob boss go down”
    bbronc,  not only mueller taking him down, but nysd and others who’ve got a lot of experience with RICO.

    this sample of what wiki says about RICO shows how that little act fits the twit to a T (and we’re not talking golf tees but tens of years behind bars and thousands of thousands of dollars in fines) : 

    The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering and allows the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes they ordered others to do or assisted them in doing, closing a perceived loophole that allowed a person who instructed someone else to, for example, murder, to be exempt from the trial because they did not actually commit the crime personally.
    Under RICO, a person who has committed “at least two acts of racketeering activity” drawn from a list of 35 crimes—27 federal crimes and 8 state crimes—within a 10-year period can be charged with racketeering if such acts are related in one of four specified ways to an “enterprise”. Those found guilty of racketeering can be fined up to $25,000 and sentenced to 20 years in prison per racketeering count. In addition, the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business gained through a pattern of “racketeering activity.

  14. Does anyone know who is working IA for the summer Straw Poll ? Or are all the ripper contenders of 2016 still terrified of their Seminole Sam ? 

  15. Ah they’re probably still just working the phones, tweets & emails. I don’t suppose they’ll roll up their flannel sleeves and visit the Keokuk coffee shops until the end of February.
