  1. sturge, what’s the story behind Bert’s Bar, the subject of the sign bottom right in 3rd picture which reads “this ain’t Bert’s Bar?”

  2. scary times

    In his editorial New Rule, Bill calls out Republicans over their undemocratic behavior and warns that when republics fall, they do so quietly.

  3. Weather whiplash. Monday 61 degrees, mild breezes;  Friday, 30 degrees, 4 “ snow, brisk wind; Monday 50 degrees. 

  4. will DoD’s Esper also be fired for declaring yesterday that the “pentagon protects its service members from retribution?”

    ‘course he also said back in November that lt col vindman   “shouldn’t have fear of retaliation – that’s DoD’s position. No retaliation – that’s the law.”

  5. here’s IMpotus today

    @realDonaldTrump

    Fake News @CNN & MSDNC keep talking about “Lt. Col.” Vindman as though I should think only how wonderful he was. Actually, I don’t know him, never spoke to him, or met him (I don’t believe!) but, he was very insubordinate, reported contents of my “perfect” calls incorrectly, &…

     

    Donald J. Trump

    @realDonaldTrump

     

    ….was given a horrendous report by his superior, the man he reported to, who publicly stated that Vindman had problems with judgement, adhering to the chain of command and leaking information. In other words, “OUT”.

     

  6. too bad the Friday massacre isn’t followed-up depleting WH, SoS & DoD with massive resignations of righteous indignation

  7. “An Old Crab Lives Here” —- reminds me of the crab hat!   What is the purpose of the green, metal fish on the top-right pic?

  8. …the long wait for a poll after last night’s debate.  If Amy doesn’t get a bump and Pete doesn’t get a dip, i’ll be disappointed. 

  9. Ha! Love seeing the crab hat!
    After last night’s response from Liz about billionaires (and billionaire donors—lookin’ at you, Mayor Pete), I don’t see a Mike/Liz ticket.    Amy would be a great asset to anyone’s ticket.   Looking forward to the Nevada debate.  

  10. Really sweet pic at Amy’s Durham event today on CSPAN, little girl told her she liked that Amy didn’t interrupt people in debate last night “like others did” 

  11. As a Warren supporter, I’m surprised to find that I’m perfectly comfortable with Klobuchar after last night’s  debate.

  12. Rachel Dratch may be very busy on SNL for the next 4 to 8 years.  Amy has raised another $1 million, thanks to last night’s debate.

    It will be Monday before any real polls come out and the tracking polls all clear out the predebate numbers.
    But Amy did do a good job, imo kind of came across as a Margret Thatcher with a humor and a heart. Not a bad place to position yourself.
    other thoughts about last night and I only watched through the first 2 breaks. 
    Steyer looked like a goof as he came out, Yang’s walk out looked like he was auditioning for a remake of Revenge of The Nerds. Time to send them home. But Biden looked just as lost. All three looked irrelevant in the first 15 minutes. Amy had a great first 15 as did Mayor Pete the difference is Amy has enough substance to last , as the debate wore on Mayor Pete’s small townness was showing and he was looking like a lost child.
    Liz was Liz. Basically a one trick pony that wants to lecture you more then inspire. 
    Bernie read the same stump speech he has read for the last 5 or 6 years. He doesn’t deviate from it.

  14. The Bill Maher clip above is right on point!  It’s all that I’ve been worried about, all that I see happening.  Directly to that point.  OpEd’s in WaPo today:

    The only thing/person not mentioned was Hitler. That dictator started in some way. And this looks to me like how it was done. Scary times! Tribe said the ways to take out a president are impeachment, vote him out or take him out.
     
     
     
     

  15. Stalin comparisons are much more valid than Hitler ones.

    Lol, Joe Walsh JUST found out the GOP is a cult. How perceptive.

    Oh- i thought last night was Biden’s best debate, yet. 🤷‍♂️

    I think he still had the illusion that there was a republican party that could express conservative ideas. From what I heard the Trumpster cult members flooded his Iowa watch party and gave him a dose of reality. Now he has joined the Never Trumper party, it is made up of the folks who lied to themselves about the party they belonged to. They still believe the old republican party had an intellectual basis. Of course we all know it never did. But I welcome their efforts to defeat Trump. They are able to do some of the dirty stuff that will let the Democratic candidate keep his hands clean.

  17. Bink, “Stalin comparisons are much more valid than Hitler ones.”  Yep.  Either one. Most know of the latter.

  18. The way i see it, nominating Bloomberg is fighting dirty.
     
    That iowa/4chan stuff is a good example of how good people just aren’t capable of stooping to the level of conservative misanthropes and apathetic internet trolls.

  19. Craig, thanks so much for posting this.  I’m starting to grill a steak and needed something to watch. ;o). I just hope they don’t waste too much time with the local yocals needing to talk.

  20. “Our ancestors braved the unknown; tamed the wilderness; settled the Wild West; lifted millions from poverty, disease and hunger; vanquished tyranny and fascism; ushered the world to new heights of science and medicine; laid down the railroads, dug out the canals, raised up the skyscrapers,” – 2020 state of the union speech, allegedly by dj trump
     
    Notice that none of these accomplishments were attributed to non-Whites, and to be completely honest not one can be attributed to any trumps. 

  21. That trump shit is straight from the white-supremacist talking points

    …not the first time he’s used that language, said almost the exact same shit a year ago or so
