    Sarah has her own channel now, for just one small fee you can main line her whenever you want. That really dwarfs any petty accomplishment any of us could have.Report

    Alsotoo, a civilian airliner flying over one of the disputed eastern provinces of Ukraine got shot down by a missile, Germany won the World Cup, Boehner is going to sue Obama rather than impeach him, the median home price in San Francisco rose over a million dollars, and Francisco Franco is still dead.Report

      Also, although Sara Palin advocates impeachment every morning with her first cuppa, and incoming House whip Steve Scalise said he wouldn’t take impeachment off the table, John Boehner decided it would be smart to lie to the public and say the impeachment talk was only coming from the White House. Apparently Palin and Scalise don’t actually exist but are just fictional characters in an Obama fever dream.Report

      • And they have to deal with polls like this (PDF) that say 57% of those who self-identify as Republican and 56% of those who self-identify as conservative favor impeachment. Of course, the numbers are 75% and 64% for the House lawsuit, so going ahead with that will presumably mollify the base. I don’t know as much as I should about the pace of the federal courts; if Boehner filed the suit today, when would the President’s lawyers get to argue that the House lacks standing?Report

  11. Rob Ford’s out of rehab and still running for re-election in Toronto. Apparently, his nephew/cousin/something Mikey Ford will also be running for office. At the annual FordFest, there were tons of protesters, lots of homophobia, some choking and fist fights. It was in a public park and there was a family nearby having a birthday party.Report

    I’ve also been lost — a family loss that’s the passing of a generation in my sweetie and our children’s direct lineage. Complicated.

    And I made a video. Hand-held my camera. This is the middle part of a stunning performance:
