Well said.

As long as The People are comfortably numb, they prefer entertainment. The orange spirochete is entertaining. If they're high on opioids, drunk, stoned, or watching porn, The People just don't give a shit, on the whole, when they are entertained. "Here we are now, entertain us" was a very astute observation by nirvana. Enough folks are entertained enough by watching "Survivor: DC" that they let these schulbs get away with most anything. I think Mistress Nancy's strategy of continually reminding The People how much of a crook, how much of a scofflaw is this pimple, is the right strategy. To make it better, to make it stick and stay, is to have The People laugh at the clown as they decide to vote against him. Then the gendarmes will swoop in, cuff him and stuff him and haul him off, live on Action McNews and replayed and retweeted continually on social media.

Bet your boots I will write him in prison and mock him for being in a little room while I am not. Bet your boots.

Mistress Nancy isn’t just reminding us about the pimple but also the pimple’s cyst in the senate.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) presented a visual representation of the Senate's "legislative graveyard" at a press conference Thursday morning. She ripped Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R., Ky.) refusal to put several Democratic initiatives up for a vote in the legislative chamber.

But the Steele Dossier was turned over to the FBI. Remember the right likes to claim that it was the (ONLY) basis for the FISA wiretap on Carter Page.

The mental gymnastics from Republicans trying to conflate Hillary working with Fusion GPS to Trump's statement has been pretty amusing today.
Do you claim that Hillary's campaign used its funds to pay a foreign operative to collect "unverified and salacious" information about her opponent from the Russian government in order to turn it over to the FBI?
No, I did not make that claim.

The Chair of the Federal Election Commission came out and said it's not legal and she specifically used the term that it's "black letter law". Black letter law
A principle of law so notorious and entrenched that it is commonly known and rarely disputed.
In cases, judges often premise their judgments by statements that a certain principle is "black letter law"; that it is well-known and ought not to be in dispute.

A new report from Stanford University’s Cyber Policy Center lists no fewer than 45 specific steps the federal government, states, counties, campaigns, social media platforms and news media can take.

Here’s one: “From the top down, including most importantly from the president, the U.S. government must demonstrate a clear, credible and consistent commitment in response to future attempts at election interference.” OK, some ground to make up there.

As an initial, cost-free step, Trump could promise that his campaign won’t use stolen information from foreign entities, like the Democratic National Committee emails that the FBI says Russia hacked in 2016.

Democratic presidential campaigns have taken that pledge. The Trump campaign has not. On Friday, spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said the campaign would handle foreign offers on “a case-by-case basis.”

I asked Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Moscow who headed the Stanford project, what worried him most about next year’s election. He named three potential problems.

First, he said, “Russia might try to influence the Democratic primaries. They like some candidates better than others. Biden is probably their least favorite, because he was the point person for the Obama administration for Ukraine.”

Second, he said he fears a “flood of disinformation” on social media, not only from Russia.

But his greatest worry is that Russian agents may “do something disruptive on election day to undermine the integrity of the election,” he said. “Imagine the chaos if there was some doubt raised about the vote count.”

A perfect example in this thread of Whataboutism, the GOP's counter to anything they can't logically defend; which is just about everything these days.
I'll believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.
