On “Cuomo, Rudy, and Ukraine, Oh My

Because without Pelosi impeaching, McConnell can't acquit.

McConnell gets off the hook if Pelosi does nothing. He can say "hey, they never sent articles up".

"

We should also note the people who, while not *DEFENDING* it... will provide excuses as to why they should not have to pressure Pelosi.

"

Republicans don't control the House.

"

Anyway, here is the contact info for Nancy Pelosi (you need to verify that you're in her district) and I recommend that all people who are in her district contact her and DEMAND that she start impeachment proceedings.

If you live near Washington DC, I urge you to participate in sit-ins at her office. If you can only go for a couple hours, take some bottled water with you and share with the people who can be there longer! Hold their place for them while they go off to use the john.

But it owns the libs so people will defend it here.

Any minute now...

On “Second Photo Surfaces of Justin Trudeau in Blackface

Footage has surfaced of Justin Trudeau killing a man. This provides a teachable moment for you to change your opinion on taxation.

Justin Trudeau's blackface provides a teachable moment for all of us.

What can *YOU* do to demonstrate that you've learned from Justin Trudeau's blackface incidents?

For one thing, you can disarm.

On “Cuomo, Rudy, and Ukraine, Oh My

The Constitution has a lot of really good stuff in it.

This is why it's important to not cancel politicians when blackface photos surface but support them:

I don't know how to read this.

Is Trump taunting the press and saying "you won't throw me into the briar patch!" because he thinks they're genre savvy?

Or is he genre savvy and thinks they're not?

Or what?

I'm so confused.

Okay, this was funny:

On “Cuomo, Rudy, and Ukraine, Oh My

I saw an interesting take on this that said that this one might have legs because it's Trump doing something behind closed doors.

If Trump calls for Russia to release Hillary's emails in a speech? No problem. Hey, it's funny.
If Trump calls for Russia to release Hillary's emails in a private phone call? EVERYBODY FREAK OUT.

So this one might have legs.

On “Light-Sabers Up! Episode IV: A New Hope

The closest thing to a not-Star-Wars-at-all Star Wars that I can think of is Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole.

If you haven't seen it, just ask yourself "what if they remade Star Wars with owls and owl-appropriate levels of technology?" and, yeah, you've pretty much seen it.

And it didn't take off.

I mean, sure, it was derivative as hell and we live in the world that Star Wars created. But it didn't take off.

From the twitters:

"

Did you go to elite schools or state ones?

"

This is *NOT* a good headline:

Justin Trudeau says he does not know how many times he's worn blackface in his life

If we're lucky, they were all respectful homages to actual black people.

"

From what I understand, people of Cuban heritage have a different relationship to blackface than white people.

Oooh! Can they own AR-15s?

On “Oh Man! The Chatterbox

A few years back, there was a commercial for Foster's in their "how to speak Australian" campaign where they had an interaction between two guys.

"How ya doin'?" "Not bad."

On “Clown Show: Corey Lewandowski Amuses Himself at Jerry Nadler’s Circus

Who is the highest declassification authority in the country?

Here is a thread from a few months back where we discussed the FBI's policy on talking to the press.

On “The GM Strike is Going to Take a While

Everything old is new again.

I'll tell this story again. I got into a job as a temp at Global Conglomerate here in Colorado Springs and one of my awesome co-workers was talking about how his manager pulled him aside and told him that, yeah, he was going to get laid off *BUT* they were going to buy a PS2 for him and pay for his unemployment so he should just see it as a sabbatical of sorts and they were going to hire him back again when 3 months were over.
