Thank You for Your Service

First, for those of you who follow Twitter so the rest of us do not have to, thank you so much for your service. You have gone above and beyond and have saved us who do not follow Twitter hours of aggravation.

So now, gird your loins & buckle up, things are gonna get ugly. After the Republicans on the Board delayed the results in the largest county in Michigan, the Wayne county election board has reversed its position and certified the Wayne County results, which put Biden over the top in Michigan. Now the results go to the State to certify Michigan’s results. The angry toddler’s tweet storm has got to be starting now.

Again, thank you for your service.

  1. a note of thanks on the serious side (and the more headlines about it the better to get D’ump where it hurts, not a steal of votes but a steal of limelight)

    Wapo:

    In an interview with The Washington Post, Abumrad recalled how Parton’s curiosity about Vanderbilt’s coronavirus research led to a gift that helped fund the vaccine that could be one of two available in the United States on a limited basis by the end of the year.
    Among the agencies and universities listed as funding sources for the Moderna vaccine was “the Dolly Parton COVID-19 Research Fund,”….
    […]
    “Her work made it possible to expedite the science behind the testing,” Abumrad, 76, said on Tuesday night. “Without a doubt in my mind, her funding made the research toward the vaccine go 10 times faster than it would be without it.”
    […]
    … with the nation in the first weeks of lockdown, Parton wanted to do her part to help. She announced her seven-figure gift for coronavirus research on April 1, making the donation in honor of Abumrad — “My longtime friend.”
    “Honestly, I never had to ask for her support for the research,” said Abumrad, calling his friend “the kindest and most philanthropic human being” he’s ever known. “She’s the one who suggested it.”

    wonder if dolly would accept a prez medal of honor or some such PR opportunity for d’ump if he would deign to share the stage

  2. around the time of her philanthropy she tweeted out this little poem according to aceshowbiz:

    “This too shall pass, as all things will / If the virus don’t kill us, the stay at home will / The kids are bored and restless / They scream and yell and squawk / And the teens and tweens, they’re just plain mean / They bite your bleepin’ head off.”
    She goes on to poke fun at couples finding it difficult to be in lockdown with their partners, noting, “All those lovin’ couples that were once so sweet and cozy / Now they fight like cats and dogs, like Donald (Trump) and (Nancy) Pelosi.”
    “Lord, get us back to school and get us back to work / And get us out of this God dang house ‘fore someone gets hurt,” she finished. “And Lord, please find a vaccination in the form of a shot or a pill / ‘Cause if the virus don’t kill us, the stayin’ home will.”

  3. Someone who tested positive last week has now tested negative and come back to the office already!  I wanna cry!

  4. Pogo,  The great orange blob is thanking himself and retweeting this morning.  He’s doing fairly well today with only one blue sentence.

    Patd, Dolly is truly an angel.  Her charities are numerous.  Having Dollywood closed off and on or limited admission  must be hard as it supplied so many jobs around where she was born in Pigeon Forge.  She is probably carrying the employees.  One thing that never stops, are the non releasable eagles with two nested breeding pairs and one area reserved for speed dating bachelors lol.

  5. Dolly is probably carrying her employees because there is no stimulus package.  There is no Christmas rush except for those in  high-end, financial and tech jobs who can work from home.  

    Republicans are killing people and jobs. Republicans are killing Christmas.

    I’ve told my boss not to come in; just drop me files at the office door.  I do not feel safe. 

  6. Speaking of Twitter, a particularly succinct one:

    My kids grew up thinking it was normal for there to be a black President. Kids growing up right now think it’s normal for the President to be a complete dick. #Trump
  7. jamie, did you see the wapo story on the timy owl in the big big tree i posted for you last night?

    that story sure would make a terrific children’s book if any of you good writers on the trail need some inspiration.  maybe a collaboration with whoever is also good at illustrations.

    i imagine the tale describing the initial woes of the tree having been a century old homestead for the little owl’s family, he/she being perhaps the last of the breed and homeless now that the tree is felled. a lot of pathos, misunderstandings, evil greedy corporations, compassionate truckers/vets/etc and a happy ending finding another of its breed at a sanctuary once it was saved and survived the ordeal.

    disney & pixar, are you listening?

  8. noah’s latest

    How has Trump spent his time since Election Day? He’s been busy playing Risk with our military, selling pieces of the country to oil giants, and fast-tracking chicken slaughter

  9. An update on the Wayne County certification.

    DETROIT — After three hours of tense deadlock on Tuesday, the two Republicans on an election board in Michigan’s most populous county reversed course and voted to certify the results of the Nov. 3 election, a key step toward finalizing President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the state.

    Now, they both want to take back their votes.

    In affidavits signed Wednesday evening, the two GOP members of the four-member Wayne County Board of Canvassers allege they were improperly pressured into certifying the election and accused Democrats of reneging on a promise to audit votes in Detroit.

    “I rescind my prior vote,” Monica Palmer, the board’s chairwoman, wrote in an affidavit reviewed by The Washington Post. “I fully believe the Wayne County vote should not be certified.”
    William Hartmann, the other Republican on the board, has signed a similar affidavit, according a person familiar with the document. Hartmann did not respond to a message from The Post.

    Jonathan Kinloch, a Democrat and the board’s vice chairman, told The Post it’s too late for the pair to reverse course, as the certified results have been sent to the secretary of state in accordance with state rules. He lashed out at the Republicans over their requests.

    “Do they understand how they are making us look as a body?” he said. “We have such an amazing and important role in the democratic process, and they’re turning it on its head.”

    (Continues – with whining)

    There was a time I thought Republicans, while wrong much of the time, were solid in their beliefs and actions.  So much for that.

  10. That Wayne County episode showed just how much Rudy et all think they can get away with blocking state certifications and getting GOP legislatures to appoint Trump electors. It’s so stupid and farfetched I didn’t that was a real plan but now I think so.

  11. Pogo…  I agree….  thanks to all of those that look at Twitter and report stuff back here.  I’ve never had a Twitter account and don’t plan on getting one.  I know I’d just go down rat holes and get lost for hours….   don’t want that.

    This is now the Left’s goal – throw President Trump, his administration officials, his family and his supporters in prison. This is where we are now. Disgusting.

    Tonight I’m calling for the eventual prosecution of donald trump and his enablers for their many crimes against the United States.

  13. We have Pygmy owls. So cute
    Why are the Goopers afraid of a man who will be in court most of the next four years?

  14. Pleased Stacey Abrams getting the focus on Mitch, run on him the way Republicans demonize Pelosi: “We’ve got to do the deep work of explaining the utility and the effectiveness of the US Senate. Not everyone knows that Mitch McConnell has been the reason they haven’t received unemployment benefits.”

  15. Well since no liars are going to heaven there are going to be a lot of the Trump family and gooper enablers in hell and since they believe in hell the rest of their lives they should be looking over their shoulder for the guy with the pitch fork 

  16. So the two Detroit voter goobers didn’t want to certify but under pressure certified, then got an orange phone call and want to rescind their vote.  Talking about the phone call, the lady of the two said he called to make sure we were “safe from all the death threats” we’d received.
    Wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to y’all. 

  17. ECTION

    Wisconsin Democratic election official: Don’t water Trump’s ‘plant of baloney’

    The bipartisan state board argued for six hours before approving the recount rules.

  18. Rudy the fixer is having a real melt down during his presser.  Once again SFB hires the best, or at least Rudy thinks he was hired for twenty large a day.

  19. Bwahahahah.  Rudy got the evidentiary hearing cancelled by talking out of his ass.  I’d say the judge should consider awarding sanctions – under FRCP Rule 11 against Dumbass’ attorneys for filing a lawsuit without a basis in fact.

  20. My guess is Rudy did not want to pay a hair stylist to make him look viral like his boss SFB.  That shoe polish does not hold very well under the lights.

  21. i’m not the first to say it, but if trumpco can’t steal the election, they’ll settle for undermining the Biden Administration before it even starts, setting up 3-4 more years of Republican obstruction in an effort to reclaim the executive branch in 2024 and finish the job of establishing a permanent anti-democratic fascist regime.
     
    “Find me one ethical Republican, and I’ll spare this land”
     
    *land burns*

  22. I know that in the new Borat movie everyone was focused on what Rudy was doing in his pants.  But what caught my eye….  was that the actress was obviously drinking water during her interview with him…  and Rudy definitely had some kind of booze in his glass.  
     
    It’s kinda funny that trump is a teetotaler yet likes lushes such as Rudy and Bannon.

  23. As much as I love free speech, trumpity SHOULD be BANNED from twitter. He’s advocating the overthrow of the newly elected government. 
     
    Or is he lining Twitter’s pockets? 

  24. I vaguely remember trumpity from the 80’s & 90’s. A womanizer and bankruptcy expert.  That’s all.  I wonder if people who knew him back then saw that he had the makings of a violent dictator?

  25. Damn it!  You just knew there had to be an ethical problem with the vaccines.  Fortunately both the Pfizer or Moderna types are okay so far.

  26. Tiptoe

    If my memory serves, New Yorkers viewed Trump as a glad handing, conman who could be bought by the highest bidder.  He actually sold his name more than a hotel and was leveraged up to the eyeballs.  He could be charming but was also thought to be truly stupid.

    I don’t think anyone saw him as a possible dictator and the Russians pretty much just used him to launder money.

     

  27. I just found out that our re-elected republican governor is ordering a statewide mask mandate while in public both inside and outside starting tomorrow.  Kudos on him for doing the right thing!

  28. Sometimes Twitter is just fun.  The little owl, got lots of attention.  This was my favorite

    My daughter says he looks pissed because he went to all the trouble to hitch a ride to NY, and they’re gonna send him back before he even gets a chance to audition on Broadway.
  29. RR – I’ve come across the type that has to feel superior because they do not do some “vice” and they hold it over the others.  However, if the rumours are true, SFB is some kind of drug addict.  And, he is, according to Steve Schmidt, a imecile and a moron. 
    So far we have a white nationalist party supporting SFB in his efforts to declare himself dictator for life.  Too bad almost half the country are part of that white nationalist party.  And, just as there are gay guys supporting the white nationalist party, there are people of color doing the same – even though that wn party has vowed to destroy and sometimes threaten to kill those who are not white males.  Sometimes there seems to be something miswired  in some brains.

  30. Rudy –
    He is not  a well man , the real clue was an exchange  this week with a judge and he didn’t know the definition  of “opacity” .  And in the same exchange he didn’t know the definition of a legal term , ( which slips my mind ) . 
    But I’m not a $20, 000 a day lawyer. 

  31. So , I’m going to stick to thinking about Blue Whales returning to South Georgia Island for a few more days.

    Greg tits-on-a-bull Abbott doesn’t give a crap who gets sick and dies.  He’s promoting a new antibody treatment.  Who is going to pay for it??? Who is going to pay the rent/mortgage for that sick person???   
    REPUBLICANS DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE ECONOMY.  If they did, they would understand that SICK people put the books in the red, from top to bottom line.
     
    DUMBASSES!

  33. Just For Felons

    Rudee needs a mole check, too. Some gnarly looking things on his head above the meltdown zone. Not just the Russian-variety mole.

  34. Good heavens.  Lara tRUMPsky running for Senate in NC?   We must rid ourselves of the entire klan.   I hope she’s done something to get rolled into the wrongdoings of SFB and his spawn.

  35. Eating One’s Seed Corn 
    A term used  in the past,  things got so bad people were forced to eat the seeds they would need to plant in the spring. 
    That is underway now with some of  the best and brightest we have. Our healthcare workers. 
    To see them working all these months , and then see some fat old white guy moaning about his fucking freedom because he has to wear a mask.
    Well we’re not running out of old moaning fat white guys , but we are burning up our healthcare workers. 

    The Mayo Clinic has had 900 workers test positive for #19 in the last 2 weeks.

  36. Trump Tax Write-Offs Are Ensnared in 2 New York Fraud Investigations

    Two separate New York State fraud investigations into President Trump and his businesses, one criminal and one civil, have expanded to include tax write-offs on millions of dollars in consulting fees, some of which appear to have gone to Ivanka Trump, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
    The inquiries — a criminal investigation by the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., and a civil one by the state attorney general, Letitia James — are being conducted independently. But both offices issued subpoenas to the Trump Organization in recent weeks for records related to the fees, the people said.
    The subpoenas were the latest steps in the two investigations of the Trump Organization, and underscore the legal challenges awaiting the president when he leaves office in January. There is no indication that his daughter is a focus of either inquiry, which the Trump Organization has derided as politically motivated.

  37. Pence out front , Rudy out front  And no Turnip  out front. No grand trip to Mar-a-lago.  
    An orange  Turnip in a bunker , ordering fat old white guys  to do what ?
    If he doesn’t have the Gobbles  family to die for him , what’s left ? 
    That whole system of fear, Roy Cone taught him doesn’t work  anymore, he’a a loser.  And that is Covid  to his myth. 
    This has broken him.  And broken old men die rather fast . 

  38. Tony –
    Thanks for those updates , Biden can pardon him , and the State of New York can chew him to pieces. 

  39. From the Huffpo article Tony posted:

    Since losing his reelection bid earlier this month, President Donald Trump has appointed two men with well-documented white nationalist ties to government roles, raising urgent questions about whether they’ll still have jobs under Democratic President-elect Joe Biden

    Darren J. Beattie, a former White House speechwriter fired in 2018 after it was revealed he’d spoken at a white nationalist conference, announced Wednesday that Trump had appointed him to the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad. 

    it goes on 🙄

  40. Roy Cone was  Turnip’s  first real mentor.  “Tail Gunner Joe’s ”  lawyer. 
    His playbook  is in force today. 
    Always attack, never admit defeat , say anything to distract. 
    When Cone was dying  from AIDS , Turnip dropped him like a bad burrito ..
     
     

  41. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad. 
     
    Ha, Ha, Ha , Ha, Ha, Ha , Ha, Ha, Ha ,  !!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad.
     
    Send Darren J. Beattie[s ass  to Africa , and he can explain why  shipping slaves  to the New World  was good for Africa.  And why the slavers  paid in Venetian glass  beads.
     
    There are so many of these beads  around today , I saw buckets of them in Santa Fe . 

  43. This country needs to figure out how to save  the lives of our young black men.  I’m not talking  about their encounters with police.  I’m talking about how we murder their Hope. 

  44. Rudy seems drunk on Hannity, even Sean can’t make sense of what he’s saying, cuts off interview after this gem: “There are more voter fraud convictions in Philadelphia than there are assault convictions at Eagles games” — Rudy Giuliani on Hannity

  45. Rudy is Turnips  last fall guy. 
    Funny how for 4 years , the brightest mind in  the world has fired  so many people  he picked. 

  46. My little sister , and brother -in-law  are flying to  Kentucky to see their 2 grand kids.  They are flying in my hippie  nephew. from Colorado. 
     
    My  tongue is raw from biting it , and I have 6 teeth .

  47. Bite your bullet  , and stay safe , this is not the worst  we have ecer seen .
    Read up on the “Broad Street Pump”  and a man named John Snow.
